  1. MICHAEL SPEAKS - June 14, 2009 - OPEN FLOOR [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here now. [QUESTION] Michael. This may seem terribly "basic;" however, due to discussions amongst students, I've become confused about how the various Soul Age Levels apply to Essence's growth and development. When Essence first starts incarnating as an Infant soul, is it actually an Infant soul that then grows and develops as each level is achieved? In other words, do completing Internal Monads in positive pole, Soul Level, and Age, apply to Essence's development? Could you please clarify? [Michael Entity] We think we understand your question and will attempt to respond appropriately. What we would remind you of, first, is that what evolves is the ROLE in Essence. We realize that the terms "Essence" and "Role" are used interchangeably, and fairly so, but they are quite different in technical terms. Much like your Personality and Essence are truly "one," they are still not the same things, technically. For the sake of this response, we will use the terminology of Essence for the part of you that exists with or without a Role. We will use Role to refer to the specific medium through which Essence experiences itself in relation to other fragments sharing a similar agenda, and sharing an intent to be a part of the spiritual ecology of a particular system, such as Earth, all of its life forms, and more specifically, Human Sentience. The PERSONALITY experiences evolution within a single lifetime, from its Infancy to Death. Within that time frame, it goes through rites of passages relative to its physical and psychological age progression and our channels refer to those as Internal Monads. The ROLE also goes through stages that our channels refer to as Internal Monads, which is a different scale than that of the Personality. To help in clarifying this differentiation, we think it would be a good idea to refer to the Internal Monads of the Personality as "The Seven Rites of Passages" as a means to differentiate from the Seven Internal Monads of the Role. The Seven Rites of Passage are still, technically, Internal Monads, but specific to the Personality. Not all stages, or Rites of Passage during a life will be experienced or completed within a single lifetime because of physiological or psychological interruptions, limitations, and interferences. ROLE experiences evolution from its first physical lifetime through its last physical incarnation, even if by proxy (Transcendental or Infinite*). Role's evolution is measured by Internal Monads, as well, but these are relative to the progression through the Soul Levels that you find in the Soul Ages. The Role's evolution through each Level is dependent on each Personality's efforts to progress through its own Rites of Passages. The further a Personality can progress through its Rites of Passages in the positive poles, the further the Role is progressed through its own Internal Monads. The 7 Internal Monads for the Role are the 7 stages of EACH LEVEL of the Soul Ages. Since it can take several Personalities (incarnations) to finally get through the 7 Life Stages, both physiologically and psychologically, it goes that it also takes that many lifetimes for a Role to progress from one level to the next in a Soul Age. With this understanding, you could say that it takes 7 successful Rites of Passages to equate the 7 successful Internal Monads of the Role. The process for the 7 Rites of Passages takes place within the physiological and psychological boundaries of the Personality, whereas the 7 Internal Monads take place within the levels of Essence/Role and is built upon the processes of the Personality. [ADDITIONAL ELABORATION from TROY] There are a couple of ways this evolution happens: COMMON PROCESS (classic process) Let's use a 5th Level Old Sage who is just starting the 5th Level. 5th Level Personality # 1 : lives to 12 years old; finishes the 2nd Rite of Passage (positive pole) 5th Level Personality # 2 : lives to 25 years old; finishes the 3rd Rite of Passage (negative pole) 5th Level Personality # 3 : lives to 50 years old: finishes the 3rd Rite of Passage (negative pole) 5th Level Personality # 4 : lives to 52 years old; finishes 3rd Rite of Passage (positive pole) 5th Level Personality # 5 : lives to 60 years old; finishes 4th Rite of Passage (negative pole) 5th Level Personality # 6 : lives to 45 years old; finishes 4th Rite of Passage (negative pole) 5th Level Personality # 7 : lives to 55 years old; finishes 4th Rite of Passage (positive pole) 5th Level Personality # 8 : lives to 72 years old; finishes 5th Rite of Passage (negative pole) 5th Level Personality # 9 : lives to 65 years old; finishes 5th Rite of Passage (positive pole) 5th Level Personality # 10 lives to 25 years old; finishes 6th Rite of Passage (positive pole) 5th Level Personality # 11 lives to 17 years old; finishes 7th Rite of Passage (positive pole) 7 Rites of Passages Completed; 7 Internal Monads Completed = 5th LEVEL Completed NEXT LIFETIME = 6th Level; and a completely new cycle through the 7 Rites of Passage/7 Internal Monads as a process toward the next soul level/age. Notice that a "short" lifetime can still quickly build upon the collection of past Rites of Passage as a means to "quickly" move into the later Passages. It is often the case that if only the 6th and 7th are remaining, a child will generate a terminal illness early in the life, speeding the process of awareness of mortality and impending death as a means to sum up the Rites of Passages, Internal Monads, and Level. RARE or NON-Classic Process: In some lifetimes, it is of interest to the Older Soul to transit a Level WITHIN the lifetime. This is rare, but not so rare for Older Souls. When this happens, the lifetime is quite literally "two lifetimes in one." There are a multitude of reasons for choosing this process, and here's how it works: Let's use a 5th Level Old Sage who decides to transit Soul Levels within a lifetime. Only the 6th and 7th Rites were not completed for the 5th Level, so rather than have a short life, or die when the 6th and 7th Rites are completed, the lifetime continues into a new cycle of Rites of Passages. When this happens, the Personality literally goes through a phase of deep awareness of its mortality and senses an impending "death." All Rites of Passages are physiological and psychological. We often think of these as relative to the physical age, but that just so happens to be a classic pattern. The actual Rites can happen at any physical age. It's the psychological levels that are the important dimensions. That's why someone can be stuck in the 3rd Rite of Passage, but be 80 years old. It's also why a 12 year old can be processing the 6th Rite of Passage. So when a person is transiting Soul Levels during a lifetime, it means they are also completing in the positive pole the 7th Rite of Passage. When that happens, the person undergoes a kind of psychological death (7th Rite), the Soul Level transit happens, and a psychological rebirth (1st Rite) happens, regardless of physical age. The following Rites of Passage will now add an interesting process to the lifetime as the person, regardless of physical age, now processes this rebirth, and then attempts the 2nd Rite of Mobility, the 3rd Rite of Independence, etc. as far as they can go with what years are left within the lifetime. Sometimes they only get through the first or second Rite, sometimes further. [END NOTE FROM TROY] [QUESTION] Does this mean that Essence can have multiple Roles incarnating -- what makes up Grand Cycles? [Michael Entity] With all of this being said, the ROLE starts as an "infant" because it is relative to its current cycle of exploration within a specific species, but the Spark who is Essence existed long before this current Role and species. There are other species and systems through which an Essence/Spark has already explored, from the initial choosing of a Role to its reunion with Tao. We refer to the entirety of this process as a Grand Cycle. Your Role does not change during one of these Grand Cycles, but once that Grand Cycle is completed, the Role is discarded, along with all of its dynamics, such as Frequency and Male/Female Energy Ratios, Essence Twins, Task Companions, Entities, Cadres, etc. and when a new Grand Cycle is chosen, all of those elements are chosen anew. [COMMENT] so, it's the Role that cycles off [Michael Entity] The Grand Cycle is to your Essence/Spark, what each Personality is to your Role. Most fragments within the Human Species have an average of 3 Grand Cycles. Most of our students, which is one Energy Ring, or 12 Cadres, share an average of 9 Grand Cycles. Essence does not evolve without the Role and the Role does not evolve without the Personality. Personality does not evolve without the 7 Rites of Passages. We realize we meandered through a response as a means to help provide context for our response. Did this answer you sufficiently for now? [COMMENT] Oh, indeed! Much more than I expected . . .everything clicked into place; thank you! [COMMENT] for me too!:) [COMMENT] Same here [COMMENT] wow; this is amazing good stuff - thank you [Michael Entity] In conclusion, the Essence/Spark DOES evolve, but it is on a different scale of measurement. There is a time when the Essence/Spark is an "infant," so to speak, but it inherently retains all of the qualities of Tao. The Essence/Spark's scale of evolution is of such a scale that the results would be difficult to comprehend. From what we understand, each Essence/Spark eventually runs its own universe, eventually fragmenting itself and continuing the spectacular creativity that is Tao, becoming its own "god," if you will. But this is not something one need concern oneself with as you consider how to pay your bills and get along with your loved ones. The number of Grand Cycles does have some effect on the way a Role will show up, even in its first Infant lifetime. Those with higher Grand Cycles can tend to seem much wiser than those with fewer Grand Cycles, which is why Entities and Cadres who share an average of Grand Cycles tend to incarnate quite tightly at first so that no one "sticks out." As the Role evolves, the Entities and Cadres "spread out" and are more capable of blending in with other fragments who may have more or less Grand Cycles. [COMMENT] Sometimes, I think we incarnate to escape the complexities of it all...we come here to stop and smell the roses so to speak [Michael Entity] We would agree, especially for those lifetimes having a Goal of Flow or Re-evaluation. Next question. [QUESTION] Back to basics 101 - I need a refresher on how to break the hold of the negative pole of Flow - Stagnation/Inertia. Would Michael offer some practical suggestions on dealing with this problem when it is hard just to do/start anything? I hope this is general enough - dealing with the negative pole of Flow. ( And yes, I see NCF playing a role in this as well, :) ) I think I'm stuck smelling the roses in only one place, hehehe [Michael Entity] One of the most effective ways of breaking Inertia is to surrender to it. This may seem counter to the intent, but one of the things that keeps a person locked in Inertia is the sense of "running in place," or "doing a lot of nothing." When one can surrender to the gravity that seems to keep one in place, the footing can be regained, or the sense of productivity and fulfillment can be regained. The point of having a Goal of Flow is to learn how to navigate within the currents that are natural to the life, and often those currents swirl, so to speak, or slow, or eddy. [COMMENT] . . . or get stuck on the rocks, hehe [Michael Entity] One of the greatest challenges for those in Flow is to overcome the pressure to show evidence and justification for their presence. [COMMENT] and NCF gets you on that part, for sure [COMMENT] oh boy do I get that... [COMMENT] me too [COMMENT] same here [COMMENT] It certainly affected me and I'm not in Flow [COMMENT] definitely me too [Michael Entity] When a fragment chooses Flow as a Goal, it is because there is an interest in the nuances and subtleties of existence and this increases the sensitivity of the Personality. [COMMENT] a big Ah [COMMENT] I second that! [COMMENT] So, smell that rose until it blackens, shrivels, and dries :) [COMMENT] .... and then make potpourri! [COMMENT] hehehe [COMMENT] yes! [COMMENT] lol [Michael Entity] This sensitivity is heightened so as to develop an intuitive grasp of the life and its natural flow, much like one might have when navigating a boat, skateboard, or other vehicle of momentum that pulls all of the senses together to calculate navigation without having to over analyze. [COMMENT] I understand this completely [COMMENT] hmm, maybe why this is why I think well while driving, lol; driving alone that is [COMMENT] I absolutely understand the idea of subtle navigation [Michael Entity] However, this sensitivity then leads to an awareness of all of the subtleties of one's "insides," so to speak, so all of the areas within oneself that are not flowing freely are felt, too. [COMMENT] perhaps that is part of the problem - a feeling that the natural flow is being blocked and feeling uncomfortable with that and wanting to 'flow' again - and not quite seeing how to get back there. [Michael Entity] Often, the Personality will turn to external environments for the solution to the lack of freedom within. [COMMENT] hence the inertia... [Michael Entity] Flowing externally and can help the flow, internally, but often it can take internal adjustments, as well. [COMMENT] ok [COMMENT] empty the well - so; it can be refilled [Michael Entity] Both the internal and external are connected, and one can help the other, but when one is neglected over the other, it can cause the sense of inertia, no matter how productive and free the life can seem in one area over the other. One of the most effective ways we've seen our students understand the concept of FLOW is to set alongside it the concept of PERMISSION. [COMMENT] ah to allow the flow...... [Michael Entity] When one feels the life is not flowing, internally or externally, it can help to ask where one has limited his or her sense of Permission. And often that permission is the barrier to the very simple and freeing experience of Relaxation. To relax. To embrace. To allow. To Be. Without apology or proof. [COMMENT] oh geeze, yes [COMMENT] thank you! [Michael Entity] We have more to say about this, especially in terms of how the negative pole can be shifted by using the positive pole of the other Goals, but we will elaborate on that in other sessions. Next Question [COMMENT] thank you very much, Michael [COMMENT] that was excellent; thank you :) [COMMENT] it was very freeing for me [COMMENT] quite excellent! :) [COMMENT] :heart: it [COMMENT] Today is a joy! [QUESTION] Hello Michael, my question has to do with choosing overleaves. In reviewing [between lives] does the fragment look over the whole series of incarnations to decide, or find a particular lifetime where something got missed... could you give me an example of how I chose this life's overleaves? [Michael Entity] There are basically three ways a fragment will choose its Overleaves: Randomly, Out of Curiosity, and Through Calculation. Earliest Personalities of the Infant Soul are a product of Randomness, with "random" simply meaning that no intent or calculation was involved in the choice, though choice was still involved. Late Baby through Early Mature bring Personalities that are products of Curiosity, meaning that there is more involved in the choice of Overleaves, but often with an "I wonder what would happen if..." kind of perspective. Mid Mature through Late Old can bring the most calculated Personalities, as the intent for final comprehension, integration, and commitment to the path for that fragment ensues. 7th Level Old is a free-for-all, which is why many who are truly 7th Level Old do not appear to be Old at all, since the Personalities are not of those you would presume to be so wise. But that is a perk of "getting older," in that one is no longer constrained by fears, obligations, ties, etc. and one can finally play with lifetimes in a way that are thoroughly understood as safe. [COMMENT] the perks of Old Age.....:) [Michael Entity] Some of the oldest souls on your planet are simply annoying and bring nothing of obvious value to society or to their social circles. Some of the "wisest," most spiritual and grounded of souls on your planet are far younger in soul age than one might presume, but many of these guru-like fragments are caught in the maya of what "wise" should look like, and play the role quite well. [COMMENT] I have always felt I planned all this since I was a kid [Michael Entity] The mapping of a lifetime, and the adherence to that map, vary from fragment to fragment, Personality to Personality. It would be accurate to say that you are of the more calculated choice in Overleaves and that your Personality found the mapping of your life to be of value, and adheres to that map within reason. Next question [QUESTION] abandonment - we all do this a lot , we come together, we go apart , that is life, as we know it... so, what can you tell me, that would help all of us, with this type of issue involved with our passages through our lives -- i am sure, it is a theme for many -- how deeply rooted is ABANDONMENT/does it have 7 levels; and; how do each of the 7 chief dragons affect it, like impatience, arrogance, self dep; self destruction, etc [Michael Entity] True Abandonment is of such popularity for exploration by souls that it is within the 30 "Classic" (external) Monads: the Abandoned and the Abandoner. It is quite popular for the same reasons that the other relationships are popular: it is an accelerated experience that holds great potential for learning about oneself. True Abandonment is an experience that eventually leads to a discovery of self-value and empowerment that, when discovered, is unprecedented. True Abandonment is antithesis to the truth of your resonance with others, and to experience it pushes one to question the value of oneself in ways that few other experiences push one to question in that way. The process of being abandoned, and the process of questioning, can be extremely painful until the lies are worked through and the truth is finally comprehended: that the value of self is never dependent upon the relative position one is within a relationship; and that the experience of abandonment is, ironically, due to the overblown value one has placed upon another fragment over self. [COMMENT] BINGO! [COMMENT] wow [COMMENT] (no wonder why sometimes, it is so easy to just detach) [COMMENT] what will the wind blow in next LOL sort of the like the ocean tide that deposits its treasures [COMMENT] I learned a lot of that in this go-round with my Father was a double-edged sword understanding intellectually why but an emotional hile [Michael Entity] There are 7 Circles of Abandonment that one can initiate or experience: Survival Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that is necessary for the survival of another, such as a mother abandoning a baby in a ditch. Sexual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that nurtures another in an intimate way, either literally sexually, or simply as embracing the Other as Oneself. Physical Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that was necessary for the mobility and productivity of another fragment. Emotional Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that embraces another fragment with room to Be without explanation or apology. Intellectual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of communication and exchange with another. Intuitive Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of encouragement for upholding the fulfillment of visions, dreams, and wishes. Spiritual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of guidance and clarity for the bigger picture and pattern of the life. [COMMENT] wow-this is very deep stuff--you are writing a book of great value troy/michael-as, you do this [COMMENT] that alone gives me mucho food for ponderings [Michael Entity] In instances of True Abandonment, Karma is often created. When we say True Abandonment, we mean that one has instilled oneself as a provider for a particular context, and then bails on the responsibilities of that position upon which another became dependent. When one experiences True Abandonment, the effects are valid and we do not mean to suggest that they are not, though we do suggest that most of the contexts can be overcome as the individual fragment finds his or her own sense of value. In the first context of Survival, the exploration of value is dependent upon Essence, not the Personality. The Essence will either let the life go as a means to start again in another life, or find a way to get help to the Personality that has been abandoned, if the Personality is receptive to that help. [COMMENT] And all the 7 seems to relate somehow with the 7 chakras and centers too [Michael Entity] Yes, there is a relevant parallel to the Chakras. [COMMENT] (you can NOT make someone else into something of value-they must learn to do that for themselves-otherwise, they do NOT appreciate it , as, they would, if they earned the rite of passage for themselves) [QUESTION] Every Personality can experience many abandonments which are only experience -- not Monadal levels of True Abandonment? [Michael Entity] The Monadal process of Abandoned/Abandoner would focus on a single Circle, or context, emphasizing, for instance, Sexual Abandonment or Intuitive Abandonment. The Monad of Abandoned/Abandoner can be played out multiple times across different relationships for emphasis on the different Circles, or contexts. We would also wish to clarify that we use the term True Abandonment to refer to the legitimate relinquishing of responsibilities for a position that was originally, mutually agreed upon. This is to differentiate from the INTERPRETATION of Abandonment that is merely a reaction to the disappointment that someone did not fulfill your expectations. Most instances of True Abandonment are thoroughly explored by mid to late Mature. Most instances of abandonment after that are those of interpretation and directly related to self-karmic issues (personal, internal divisions within) that one is working on resolving. Last question. [QUESTION] An Infant soul has certain characteristics. Are these Infant Soul characteristics similar to what is experienced at each level. So that a person at a level one Old soul age, will be orienting to this new Age with some of the perspective of an Infant but specifically to the Old Soul experience. [Michael Entity] That is a valid observation. It could be said that the First Level of any Soul Age is the "infant" level of that soul age, and so on. The 6th and 7th Levels of a Soul Age would resonate to the Transcendental and Infinite Soul Ages, wherein the 6th Level is a process of opening to the collective experiences of your Essence for guidance through the life, and the 7th Level is a process of openness to one's Entity for guidance for the life. While this is not a strict correlation, it is one that can help lend understanding to each Level. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  2. OMW - Apr 21, 2012 - Equality in Relationships Channel: Troy Tolley Review of assignment to consider during the OMW: Make note of at least one person you truly adore, even if it's not unconditional and even if it's sappy and aching and longing... Make note of at least one person who is annoying beyond all fuck's sake and that you are "forced" to deal with on a regular basis At least one person who is just all around pleasant and has no charge one way or the other Now think of your pet peeve (just one for now) that eclipses the presence of the other person, even if they are great, but if they trigger that pet peeve, it's a challenge Now think of one outstanding quality that, if someone tends to exemplify, you find you are okay with him or her, even if he or she isn't that great of a person [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will discuss the subject of Relating today, and how this is built upon your Equality. First, we will discuss the nature of Relating, and what it means. Relating is often left only to describe that with which you find compelling commonality, but it also includes that with which you find repelling differences, and that with which you find comforting. When someone says that he "relates to that," it usually means he has found commonality and resonance in a positive way. However, we suggest expanding the understanding of Relating to include that which you find repellent, and that which you find comforting. The latter is not so difficult to include, and may already be included, but we consider it to be fairly ignored in terms of Relating. For instance, one may find comfort in her relationship with a mate, a mother, or even a group, but not really find compelling commonality. Relating through comfort is not often included in the "I can relate to that" use and understanding of the word. So we will then define RELATING as: any interaction of significance The more significant the interaction, the more likely that it is a RELATIONSHIP. You may Relate to a cashier in a store, but you would not necessarily have a Relationship with him or her. If you saw that same person every day, you may find that you do bring your Relating into the realm of Relationship, and that would depend upon the level of significance, which requires higher proportions of the components of time and space. For now, we will focus on Relating, because this would include all Relationships, as well. But we think it is helpful to understand that even the kind exchange with the stranger, or the annoying exchange with the stranger, is Relating, and therefore, is a matter of examining Equality. For now, consider that what we share about Relating will apply to your Relationships, as well. Relating is actually a Triad of Attraction, Repulsion, and Comfort. ALL Relating has all of these facets inherent, which is more evident in Relationships, of course, but ALL Relating has all three, as well. Your Relating, and your Relationships, can be found to sorted into one of these facets as a primary emphasis. Those Relationships that last the longest can tend to be obvious in their containing all three of these, but they will still tend to emphasize one facet over others. Relating tends to quickly fall into one of these as an emphasis, and often never see the other facets. If Relating falls outside of this Triad, then it is Insignificant. The cashier will either be a pleasant experience from the Attraction Facet, or it will be a challenging experience from the Repulsive Facet, or a kind and nurturing experience from the Comforting Facet, or if you barely notice each other, it will be entirely insignificant. If a Relationship is to have any wholeness, it will have all three of these facets fulfilled in a rather cyclical manner. We wish to clarify here that Relating DOES NOT include instances where one imposes upon another. To some degree, the information here can still be helpful, but if one is raped, it will not necessarily be helpful to consider how you are "equal" with your rapist. The older soul may be able to apply this information in those instances, but for those any younger, the discussion of boundaries is still relevant and important. For the older soul, boundaries begin to blur, and even the worst of others is considered a part of the puzzle of the larger Context, and in those cases, this information can be helpful. For the older soul, it tends to be more important to extract value from the experiences of violation than it is to uphold a permanent barrier, boundary, and defense. Either way is valid, and the information here is not to usurp your inclination. This information is offered only as a tool that you may choose to use, or not. We will pause here for a moment to hear from you: Is everyone finding the information, so far, to be valid when considering your interactions? And do any of you have questions about what we have shared, so far? [BA] I think so. [NS] In MFM or MMFM, you were quoted as saying something like "you are most equal to your essence twin" I am paraphrasing... [NS] Was that accurate channeling? If so, what did you mean by this? [MEntity] Whether we were quoted accurately, or not, this would be true. On an Essence Level, the fragment who is one's Essence Twin is the epitome of the Triad, to its most extreme. One cannot escape the reflection when with an Essence Twin, and while all three Facets would tend to be in obvious effect, there is very little rest in one Facet over another, which can be exhausting and intense for the Personalities. This is not to say that this same kind of intensity and extreme cannot be had with other fragments, but that this is the one that is bound by Agreements and mathematics. [LM] mathematics? [MEntity] If an Essence Twin relationship is to be sustained, it usually ends up requiring various "breaks" in the cycles to help each other reset, digest, and implement what was learned from one another. [NS] By mathematics, I think they mean the position within your respective entities that bind you through resonance... [NS] True in my experience! I am at a "breaking point" right now! lol [MEntity] LM, NS would be correct. Essence Twins share Casting and the same "Raw Number," which is part of what binds them, as they will be part of what draws the Entities together in the next Planes. We have not heard from everyone, but if there are no other responses, we will continue. [LM] is this also why i have not incarnated at the same time as my ET for a while? [MEntity] LM, that is often the case. It gives great relief to both when one has a body, and the other does not. We will talk about Equality now. [MW] oh wait - does relating mean in person relating? or online too, etc [MEntity] MW, our definition should help to answer that question. Any interaction of significance would include a spectrum of media for exchanges, all of which would be physical. Even your online world is a physical connection, a physical exchange, and if there are interactions of significance, then these would be Relating. By "Equality," we mean that both parties are in the interaction for some kind of personal benefit. There is no Relating without personal benefit. That is not to say it is selfish, but that it is simply the nature of Relating. [MG] I find it interesting - when in relationship with someone online -- they will often refer to others in their life as "friends" -- while ignoring the obvious "friendship" that is in place online -- as well! [NS] That makes me think of a certain person here on TLE that seems to discount the friendships and support here...although I get it... [MEntity] That person may be speaking of Relationships, not Relating. Relationships require the components of mutual Time and Space in some way. For some, enough Time can help to nurture a valid Relationship; for others, enough Space can, even if there is little Time together. And for some, both are necessary in high quantities before they will acknowledge that there is a valid Relationship. However, one's preference for defining a Relationship will have no bearing on whether one is actually in one, or not, and if there is any interaction of any significance, then you are Relating. Returning to the subject of Equality: no Relating happens without personal benefit. That "personal benefit" is described by your Goal. Your worst experiences of Relating, and your worst Relationships; your best experiences of Relating, and your best Relationships; your most comforting of exchanges in Relating, and your most comforting Relationships, are all to help you fulfill your Goal. In your most confused or elated of exchanges of significance, if you were to keep in mind how it plays into your capacity for fulfilling your Goal, a great deal of clarity immediately can come to mind and heart and body. The most irritating of people, and the most charming, and the most comforting, are in some way catering to your aim to fulfill your Goal. And the same would be for your position in that person's life. This is not to suggest that your obnoxiousness or cruelty or harm is justified by your presuming that the other person is "benefitting" from it. We are sharing with you what YOU can do to understand how others benefit you, so that empowerment and comprehension and peace can come to your Relating on a daily basis, as well as come to your Relationships. With this information, you may find that there are solutions that have been right under your nose, so to speak, for how to handle, how to make sense of, and how to make choices regarding your Relating and Relationships. The Triad takes effect in this way: Attraction tends to Stabilize or Support your Goal; Repulsion tends to Accelerate or Expand your Goal; and Comfort tends to Heal your Goal. By "your Goal," we should say "your experiences gained from the aim for that Goal." QUESTION: Do each of you see how your Relating, and Relationships, benefit your Goal? [NS] oh, yes! [LM] yes, definitely [MG] I'm beginning to [BA] I'm chewing on it [LM] my goal is Acceptance. this makes sense [GLB] Yeah, Repulsion tends to turn me into an asshole in reaction -- Attraction puts me into more positive pole [MEntity] BA, when one is in the Negative Poles, there is a "harder" time of this, regardless of where in the Triad the Relating is. Before we continue, if there are any personal examples that need to be explored, we can do that now. Each of you may state your Goal, and we will help to describe how this would show up. [MG] Acceptance [NS] So, just to be clear on this...Recently, I have been repulsed by my ET...something he did triggered me. This is supporting me in fulfilling my goal of FLOW/PEACE/FREEDOM...in that it sort of "forces" a consciousness around how I can create FLOW/PEACE/FREEDOM? [GLB] Discrimination [BA] Growth Goals of Acceptance and Discrimination [MEntity] We will begin with Acceptance, which is probably all-too-familiar with the concept of how Relating and Relationships challenge, support, or heal the experiences gained from the aim for the Goal. Acceptance, in its simplest terms, is the aim for learning how to say "Genuinely say YES." [LM] my goal is acceptance. I have a "friend" which at first I wanted to be accepted by her but she had jealousy issues with me and dissed me. now she wants me to show up for her and I am having second thoughts about even wanting to be around her. [MEntity] For those in Acceptance, Relating will tend to bring about experiences that ask, "now, how can I say Yes to this?" What those in Acceptance tend to do is say Yes to so many things in the beginning that they lose the actual meaning of the word. This is usually done before gaining consciousness, or "waking up." Eventually the question becomes, "how can I say Yes to this, and mean it?" If you cannot say Yes, and mean it, then you are in Ingratiation. If you expect others to say Yes, regardless of whether they mean it, then you are in Ingratiation. The irony for Acceptance is that one must learn to say No before one can truly say Yes. It is often painful, literally, for Acceptance to say No, but this changes to being comforting when the honesty in saying Yes is seen to be so beneficial to all involved. Every Goal will swing to extremes before centering and stabilizing. Acceptance tends to start at the far YES, and then swing to the far NO, before stabilizing into rightful honesty. In general, the life will tend to be be segregated into compartments for the Attractive, Repulsive, and Comforting areas of Relating and Relationships, though there will be overlap, of course. Where Acceptance finds the most Repellent, the aim is either to learn to say Yes to that which has been difficult to accept, or to say No until you can. Acceptance cannot truly Accept, or move into Agape, when there is no discernment. This is why it is paired with Discrimination. As Acceptance and Discrimination are on the Truth Axis of the Overleaf System, these Goals are an aim toward honesty and integrity. The "truth" is often nuanced, so it is not necessary to be conclusive in your Yes, or your No, but to be clear where you can say Yes, and where you can say No. The key would be in whether it is Truthful. As Acceptance and Discrimination are Expression Axis Goals, this would also require communication in some way. You cannot presume that another will "get you," or that they "should know." More than any other Goals, these two need to EXPRESS, put into form, the truth that is part of their Goal. The more defensive and reactionary, the less one is being honest. When one is honest, there is a peacefulness, even if awkwardness, about the decision to say No or Yes, because it is the truth. For Discrimination, the swing of extremes tend to be reversed so that the life starts with many decisions already having been made for the fragment. Discrimination is the process of refining one's capacity to choose, and this could translate into learning to say with integrity and honesty, NO. Those in Discrimination will often start with a great deal of NO around them, or simply find ways of avoiding saying YES. There is no Sophistication to their process of choosing, but, instead will simply inherit Rejection, find Rejection from others, or Reject all but a very slim sliver of existence. This is the embrace of NO without any integrity or honesty, no Truth. Eventually this swings to the extreme of having to be in situations where one now realizes how often one must say YES in order to truly mean NO. Again, this requires honesty and communication. To simplify and be more specific to Relating: For those in Acceptance, one is learning to bring kindness and acceptance to your communication when saying No, and to rise beyond ingratiation and obligation when saying Yes. For those in Discrimination, one is learning to bring clarity and refinement to one's communication when saying Yes, while rising above rejection and reaction when saying No. Goals of Growth and Re-evaluation For Growth, Relating is all about extracting Meaning. When one forces or imposes that Meaning, it can move into Confusion. When one creates that Meaning, and allows it to change, there is Evolution. For those in Growth, all Relating tends to have "some kind of meaning." Growth tends to swing in its extremes from "what does this mean about me?!" to "wow, that says a lot about you!" to a balance of shared Meaning that is nuanced and inclusive, rather than divided and exclusive. It is paired with Re-evaluation, because Growth often requires a return to simplicity for help and returning to Meaning, or Evolving, through Relating. [Question] What is the difference between "forcing" or imposing meaning and creating it? [MEntity] Forcing is prejudiced and decided before the Relating has even started. Creating is to use the ingredients available in the Relating. Confusion leaves out many of the ingredients that Relating, or a Relationship, provides. Evolution uses all of the ingredients that are available. In other words, "you mean something to me, you evolve me, only if you do so on my terms," and sometimes, "I mean something to you, I evolve you, only if I do so on your terms." Evolution, however, is "we mean something, we evolve each other, only if we do so on our terms, and those may shift and change." In terms of Relating, Growth then would be learning to Create Meaning when aiming to Evolve, and to Allow Meaning when rising above Confusion. Goal of Flow In terms of Relating, Flow is the process of learning to NAVIGATE. The extremes for Flow tend to be that one will swing to the extremes of letting anyone and everyone else be the navigator, steering the flow of the life. You simply hang on. This is then countered by an extreme swing toward taking complete control of that steering, and anyone who cannot keep up will fall simply fall off, or be left behind. Both these extremes tend toward Inertia, which is either keeping a momentum that never seems to change, or running in place, like running upstream. When it comes to Relating, Flow can often be heard saying such things as "no matter how hard I try..." Inertia comes from presuming that an aim should be clear, tried, and true, mapped out, and clarified. Freedom comes from fluidity, flexibility, and guidance. The map is a guide, not a trajectory. Your Goal is partnered up with all other Goals because it is often necessary to recalibrate, aim differently, navigate various paths, often on multiple levels of the life. True Freedom requires structure. And so it is when it comes to Relating. In simple terms, then, Flow is learning to provide structure when in Freedom, and learning to change course when in Inertia. Freedom is not a free-falling abstract state. It has footing. Without that footing, there is Inertia. And so it is that most who are in Flow will experience Relating as a process of creating or finding that footing. We described to you the Triad, which is the FUNCTION of Relating, or how Relating functions, but the PROGRESSION of Relating tends to be through the process of REVEAL, AMPLIFICATION, REVELATION, and INTEGRATION. For most instances of Relating that is not a Relationship, one of these four stages would be exemplified. This is because Relating is not simply an external progression, it is an internal progression. You Relate to You. And you do so through others. Depending upon where you are in the progression of Relating to yourself, your Relating may tend to show up in these various stages. [Question] do you mean Personality to Essence and/or Personality to sub-Personalities? [MEntity] We will keep it simple here as self to self, as a more holistic phrasing, inclusive of all of these variations on "self." The stranger who smiles at you can tend to reflect where you are in your progression with yourself. That stranger's smile can elicit a Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, or Integration. We will define these terms now. Reveal is the display of commonalities, whether these are differences or common ground. Amplification is the honing in on those differences or that common ground. Revelation is realization that what was experienced was just what was needed. And Integration is the use of that realization, or the ownership of that Revelation. So the stranger's smile can be playing into any one of these stages. For example, you may be having a hard time learning to love your appearance or your body, and depending on how you are Relating to yourself, you may find that smile to be mocking, pitying, or healing. If you are in a mocking relationship with yourself, then you will find that the smile Reveals to you that others feel the same way. You may find that it Amplifies what you already fear. You may find that it to be a Revelation in that someone has actually honed in on your vulnerability. You may find that it confirms what you thought was true all along and you Integrate that. If you are in a loving relationship with yourself, or attempting to, then the smile can mean Reveal to you that others are offering kindness and nurturing, too. Or it can serve to Amplify and propel what you are already trying to do for yourself. Or it can surprise you that this smile is just what you needed that day. Or it bring Integration of the truth that you can be appreciated just as you are. Because of time constraints we realize we are not going to be able to give elaborate examples, but these are a start. The point being that where you are with yourself often determines where others are brought in to serve that. In terms of Relationships, this is much more obvious. Common Ground is Revealed, then Amplified, and then the Revelation that you have learned something from it, and then the Integration of what was learned. Keep in mind that Common Ground includes differences, even vast differences that cause conflict. That is your common ground. In those terms, you are Equals. You are willing participants in an attempt to learn, to fulfill your Goals. Knowing this, you can ask yourself, "how can my Relating, or "how can my aim to fulfill my Goal help better my Relating, or Relationship?" Keep in mind that your Relationships, the longer they are around you in time, and the closer they are to you in space, will cycle through the functioning of the Attraction, Repulsion, and Comfort Triad, and progress through the Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, and Integration. These overlap and change over time so that, for instance, if a Relationship started from Attraction/Reveal, it will tend toward Repulsion/Amplification, then Comfort/Revelation, and then Attraction/Integration, the back to Repulsion/Reveal, etc. None of these must be dramatic or theatrical, but are often quite subtle and enlightening, depending upon where one is with himself or herself in his own Relating. So to summarize: You are Relating to anyone when there is any interaction of significance. Relating is a Triad that either aims at one part of the Triad, or cycles through it over time and space. You only Relate to Equals, as they are serving your Goal, and you, in some way. You Relate as a means to fulfill your Goal. Relating turns into Relationship the more time and space is included. Relationships move through a progression of Reveal, Amplification, Revelation, and Integration, and are perpetuated by the function of the Triad. We realize this is a lot of technical mapping, and if you choose to use this, it is helpful, but if you choose to reduce this to the simplest terms, then you can do so and still benefit from the responsibility that your part in Relating entails. Good day to each of you. We will conclude here.

    Energy Report: AUGUST 2009

    July marked the rather awkward, yet enthusiastic, leap into the exploration of the Attitude for the year, which is IDEALIST. Most entered July on a wave of Passion generated over the previous 3 months of April, May, and June in which Passion, symbols, and identity were explored, shaken, and some left behind, making way for a sense of renewal in the months ahead. Many of you welcomed the energy of encouragement for improvement and betterment by your own standards. But it appears to us that, for many, August has "fallen flat" in its sense of promise and improvement. At best, most of our students appear to be in a state of Inertia, the negative pole of this year's Goal of Flow. At worst, a quiet, deep (and for some, a secret) disappointment has sprung within and August has turned into a sensation of weight that must simply be endured, worked through, processed. We say "at best and at worst" only for convenience as a way of describing one end of the spectrum as being fairly distracting, similar to the rowing of a boat upstream, whereas the other end off the spectrum is still a sensation of going upstream, but with a dragging anchor to contend with, as well. If these states are familiar to you, it is more than likely a familiar case of Naivety, the negative pole of Idealism. Your standards set high, your expectations set high, your enthusiasm set high, and as August has unfolded, you have discovered the depth of effort between what you envisioned and where you are. It is not uncommon. Setting your vision high, igniting your enthusiasm, and then either feeling as if you are falling short within a limited time, or simply incapable of fulfilling that vision, can cause a sense of crash and burn, or at the very least, a sense of running in place. For some of our students, this collapse in enthusiasm has come because of that perceived gap between what is envisioned and where one is, but for others it has come because life has thrown you a curve "just when you were ready to dive in to your improvement," or so it seems. What we would suggest to those who feel this inertia and weight is to realize that this is exactly a part of your process. Often this collapse of enthusiasm can be consuming, which can then lead to the relinquishing of all concern, but it does not have to be. The entire point of the collapse was proportional to your passion and intent to improve life and fulfill a vision. What is often not understood about the intent to improve the life is that when that intent is genuine, then the improvement is genuine. When improvement is genuine, it is a rooting that must take place, and when something new is planted in place something that was no longer growing or nurturing you, then that old rooting is uprooted. You are in the uprooting phase of your passionate effort to improve upon your life toward your ideal. What has come up as far back as the beginning of July for some, and for most during the last week of July through this second week of August, are pivotal experiences that will change you in ways that experiences have rarely changed you, if you choose to reap the lessons that have been be brought to bear. It would be safe for us to say that if your end of July through August 15th have been less than spectacular, less than fulfilling, less than fruitful, and quite frankly more than disappointing, more than disheartening, and more than distracting from your enthusiastic vision, then you were more than likely deeply sincere in your intent to make this year "count" as a pivotal year in your self-development and direction, and that you may be missing the point of what has come to the surface during these past weeks. Some of you may find that our description of disappointment and distraction to be too familiar for it to stand out as being anything new, so we will leave it to you to intuit the validity of what we describe. For some, the experience we describe above may be a repetitive pattern, or for others, the description is too vague. We can only say that for those who are experiencing the process of enthusiasm and intention for a pivotal year toward an ideal, what we describe will hit home. An aside: Keep in mind that we describe in our energy reports the patterns that are most noticeable and have the greatest momentum, much like the kind of weather report your geographical area is generating. This weather, if it actually manifests, is valid for anyone participating in it, i.e. having to travel in it, walk in it, etc, but may only be peripheral for others who are in a climate-controlled room, or focused intently on matters that do not take them "outside." The same could be said about the energy reports and those "out in the weather" vs those who are not, so to speak. For those who might not relate to any given report, a different report would have to be given to them, relative to that person's specific world at the time. For those who do relate to this report, we would suggest going back to read our February Report, focusing on the dynamics of FLOW. We would also suggest letting your disappointments, heartaches, grief, disorientation, weight, distraction, and disheartening moments give you the seeds of change that have come from the uprooting, or the displaying, or the glaring redirection needed for you to fulfill your visions, to honor your ideals. The information, wisdom, trust, and gifts are there. We do not say this to be poetic. It is simply true, or at least it is true that you do have the capability and strength for extracting the meaning from your recent experiences in a way that the experience becomes information, wisdom, trust, or a gift. [Note: The February 2009 Energy Report is apparently lost.] We would like to add a word about Enlightenment, as we play this Position within many of our students' Support Circle: We will first say that "enlightenment" is simply a building of a structure through which one can make sense of life. It is not a goal, nor is it a state, so much as it is a natural ingredient in the process of evolution. Even your "a-HA!" moments are not moments of enlightenment, so much as they are punctuations in the book of enlightenment you write with your experiences. One of the greater steps of enlightenment, and one that is taken over and over across many lifetimes, is the submersion into experiences that are overwhelming, deeply disappointing, painfully disheartening, defeating, or distracting, and finally grasping the truth that you are allowed to feel what you feel when you are in those experiences; that you are allowed to be overwhelmed, disappointed, disheartened, distracted, and to feel defeated; that to fight these feelings, to ignore them, to shame them, to contain them, to color them with pleasantries, to rise above them, etc. only leads to addictions, sedation, therapy, and other methods of securing False Personality at the gates of life to protect you from either feeling anything associated with these experiences, or to protect you from others seeing that you are feeling anything associated with these experiences. We would call this "Endarkenment." Endarkenment is not opposite to Enlightenment, but are much like Hate and Love. Hate is not the opposite of Love, it is a misunderstanding and distortion of Love, or, in other words, both are descriptions of a kind of intimacy. In that same way, both Enlightenment and Endarkenment are attempts to make sense of life, but Endarkenment is a delusion, a distortion of the structure that helps make sense of life, and often an angry insistence of the meaning of things as if this may never change. And so it is that many of you have stumbled upon your Endarkenment, holding up to the surface of your life what it is that you have insisted is true about your life, that contradicts your passionate higher vision, your ideal. For some of you this is quite dramatic, and for others of you this may simply be a bitter undertone in your days, but you will recognize what we describe if this has been the case for you in the past 6 weeks or so, and for some of you, this has not yet happened for you. If you are one who has set out this year to make this a pivotal year, we would say that it is likely that you would be stumbling upon your own Endarkenment in the weeks to come, and this information may be of help. August has no significant global or community shifts, but it appears to us that many of our students have fairly profound sets pivotal days within the month of August. Again, though it is unusual for us to emphasize this in such a way, those of you who understand this report, will understand so with a clarity that further validates our resonance with you as students. We rarely remind you of this, particularly for the sake of our position as a teacher, and for the sake of exemplifying the valid weight of such words when said with full presence; and though it is not unheard of that we say this when we feel it most important and appropriate, we do wish to say now that it is true that you are not alone, that we do care, and that it is true that we love you. We do not share our teaching flippantly. Most of you who work with us for any length of time are not doing so as a novelty. We have a relationship with you, and that can often be forgotten in the intellectual emphasis of our teaching. But our higher perspective does not exempt us from these sensitive states of resonance with you, it simply allows us to know love for you more profoundly than we can express within the sentimental distortions of language. We do not bring all of this up randomly, of course, but to speak to some of our students who will have stumbled upon a stage of Endarkenment. The words we share in this report that would normally have been seen as uncharacteristic of our communication, will probably be heard more clearly than usual without contradiction to our usual communication. Endarkenment, as it gives way to Enlightenment, can often open one up to a great sensitivity and clarity of true communication, stripped of sentimentality, pleasantries, and other False Personality tendencies, not only between yourself and others, but between Personality and Essence, and beyond. In the same way that our words expressing resonance with you may be heard more clearly, so it is that many of you may find in the weeks to come, a heightened renewal of contact and clarity with your own guides and support groups, both physical and non-physical. [note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.]
  4. ASK MICHAEL - Live Channeling April 6, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [Joeyann] How can you tell what I'm doing did the original Michael group set up the commune that they were talking And reading transcripts from 1973 and 74 there are going to set up a commune and I'd like to know if that was completed [MEntity] The talk of communes was that of the channels ideals at the time, and not our own. We had, nor have, any intention for encouraging or "setting up" a commune. Communes are an ideal that is appealing to many, particularly of those shifting from Young to Mature and into Mature, but for the Old Soul, it can be "hell." [Joeyann] Thank you that is how I pictured it myself [MEntity] This is not to say that there are no Old Souls in communes, but many of these only pass through these as sanctuaries for healing and respite, but not as a long-term investment. Of course, we are speaking in terms of what is currently understood as a template for what a commune is. This template is based on the shift from Young to Mature. The older soul ideal for a commune would be quite different. [David_Wlk] Hello Michael... And on Michael communities in general... would you be able to speak about Michael communities into the potential future, choosing to gather in particular environs around the world, with a particular interest in Australia as a safe haven. [MEntity] Are you asking if there are Michael students in Australia who can gather? If not, please phrase a question. [David_Wlk] Not so much about now - But for gatherings of M students there, or elsewhere, in the future. And why...? [MEntity] In terms of future gatherings, and locations for gatherings, this is entirely up to the students. We do not direct these. We merely "show up" if invited. [David_Wlk] I'm interested in places of gathering - safe havens into the future... [MEntity] Anywhere that there are those who are not preoccupied with survival struggles would be ideal. There must be, at least, some sense of safety created and sustained among those who would gather. Location is secondary. Beyond the obvious places that might be dangerous, there are any number of locations that could be described as inherently stable and safe. If you are asking us to pick a place, we would not do so. We are not limited to location, and we prefer to leave the assessment of safety up to those who are directly experiencing the challenges and pleasures of the Physical Plane for arranging locations. [Juni] There is a fair amount of information about C1E7 about how it is the "sweetheart" entity. As time allows, what is characteristic about its counterpart, C2E7, along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? Please summarize or expand for what you think is most useful/informative/helpful. [MEntity] First, all Entity Sevens would have as their Positive Pole that of INCULCATION, and as a Negative Pole that of ECLECTICISM. The variation of Essence Roles in any given Entity then colors how those Poles are manifested among the members. While Cadre 1, Entity 7 is primarily Servers and Priests, with Artisans, Cadre 2, Entity 7 is primarily Priests and Servers, with Scholars. Those slight variations lend very different "flavors" or colors to each of those Entities. In general, those from Cadre 1, Entity 7 tend to dance a finer line between chaos and order, whereas those from Cadre 2, Entity 7 tend to dance a fine line between isolation and understanding. The Scholarly infusion among the members seems to bring about a great need to understand, to make sense, to KNOW, and if this is not the case, these members tend to recoil in isolation, observation, and distance. This means that the repetitive themes (inculcation) for most members of Cadre 2, Entity 7 are those that push through everything that is confusing, overwhelming, and disorienting. These members will keep repeating and repeating an experience, scenario, relationship, lifetime, etc. until there is that understanding, that confidence in knowing. This may sound difficult, but it is the Positive Pole. It is how these members move toward expansion and evolution. It is a preferred path, despite its challenges. When in the Negative Pole, these members tend to feel fragmented and conflicted, divided among various facets of the life in a way that can sometimes feel fraudulent or as an imposter. This is Eclecticism here. It is a process of learning that is piecemeal, so to speak. A little bit here; a little bit there, but nothing comprehensive. This means that this Entity has had its fair share of members having "gone crazy," or struggled with mental stability. This is not exclusive to this Entity, of course, but it is a pattern among the members. For that reason, we might consider describing this Entity as having a theme in SANITY. The delicate and often difficult maneuvering through lifetimes for these members can be as wild and as fun as they can be implosive and crushing. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I just love this description of the Server Casting that I found you wrote: [Kurtis] Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding. [Kurtis] This was your answer to one of Al's questions a while back, and many have said these hold true who are Server Castings, so I was wondering if you could write the same format above, but for the Warrior Cast. [MEntity] Warrior Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of sincerity and authenticity in various experiences or people in the life. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who generate meaningful challenges to the Personality so that there is no sense of complacency or apathy. This attraction to those who might bring this honesty, authenticity, and challenge can mean that many fall short of the expectations of this fragment, and there may easily come a system of navigation that comes to be based on presumptions and prejudices. This, then, becomes a wall through which those who seek intimacy will have to "prove" themselves to the Warrior-Cast, even if that Warrior-Cast does not realize this is in place. This can bring about a rather dismissive stance from the Warrior-Cast that would, eventually, have to be addressed by that Warrior-Cast if the desire for authenticity and honesty outweighs the actual experience of it. The above is just one of many ways we can respond to such a question seeking elaboration, but this will suffice for now. [Bobby] I wanted to follow up on the information that you provided Anna regarding her cat, George. For clarification purposes, were you saying that every cat "body" on the planet is experienced through a different Entity? If not, would you elaborate a little more on how that works? Before, I had just thought that a single Entity experienced through ALL cat bodies on the planet [MEntity] Bobby, while there is far more collective awareness among those who are participating in a non-sentient species, the higher the medium is in the tier of Kingdoms, the more individualized the consciousness involved. Domestic Cats and Dogs are of the Higher Mammal Kingdom, and are, therefore, quite a bit more fragmented in consciousness. Until there is full Sentience, however, that fragmentation still remains with full access to, say, "Cat Central" that is, the field that sustains Felines. [Bobby] so cat central would be comprised of the individual Entities then? [MEntity] In a sense, yes. Let us offer the following as a means for clarification. In terms of moving through the 7 Kingdoms of a Physical Plane toward (potential) full fragmentation and Sentience in a particular species, it works much like this: Oceanic/Mineral Kingdom = Entire Design; Vegetation Kingdom = Energy Rings; Insect Kingdom = Cadres; Cold-blooded, Bird, and Lower Mammal Kingdoms are variations of Entities; Higher Mammal Kingdom is quite varied, but tends to be a single Entity or members of a single Entity. The higher the kingdom, the more attached to the individual bodies. The lower the kingdom, the more one acts as caretaker, or "deva" for an entire species or large group within the species. So "Cat Central" is more like an Akashic Records for that species to which those who are experiencing the species contribute. We often use the term "hive soul" for non-sentient incarnations because a body, group, or mountain can be "home" to a multitude of fragments/entities/cadres. So the Entity experiencing you through your cat is experiencing its entirely unique experience. It is not that your cat is simply one set of eyes among millions through which a crowd is experiencing. By the time there is the breakdown to incarnations as entities in a Kingdom, there is a cycle of lifetimes experienced with that particular species. For instance, an entity that is experiencing CAT, will have 7 Cat lifetimes. The incarnational cycle is 7 lifetimes for mammals. So there will be 7 as cat, 7 as dog, 7 as cow, 7 as pig, etc. Eventually, this movement of consciousness begins to fade for a planet and the multitude of species begin to die off. This is particularly true when there is little viable means for access to any other species as Sentient. If the Sentience of Gorillas can stabilize, more species will spring into Sentience for other Designs to follow. Otherwise, there may have to come an extinction of Humans, first. [Bobby] Ok, thanks. We'll definitely follow up on this with more specifics in the near future. I think it's fascinating. [Jana_K] Hello Michael, could you please talk about how Flow gets itself into positive poles through sliding to other Goals? Or how Flow can generally benefit from sliding to each of the different goals? [MEntity] Jana, Assimilative Overleaves almost always require the use of another Axis to move to its own Positive Pole. Though it is possible for the Neutral to move within itself, it is simply, nearly impossible. In the same way that any other Overleaf must tend toward the Positive Pole of its partner on an Axis as a way to return to its own, the Assimilative depends on this same process. Though the Assimilative Overleaves have access to the entire range of Overleaves in its category, habits do tend to form in regard to the particular challenges and interests that the Personality is developing for that lifetime. So one person's Flow may gravitate toward Growth as its means of return to a Positive Pole, and to the Inspiration Axis in general, while another may gravitate toward Acceptance, or the Expression Axis, as its means of return. In that regard, it is quite helpful for those in Flow to look at the life in terms of what may be a pattern for experiences at any given time. There will larger arcs and smaller arcs of experiences, so this would need to be considered, as well, but one can usually tell if the current emphasis is on a larger or smaller arc. So if your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with meaning, value, reflection and projection (inspiration), then your Flow would want to move to Growth or Re-evaluation as a means of return to Freedom. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with contribution, participation, effectiveness, and movement, then you would likely want to move your Flow to Dominance or Submission. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing struggles with making confident choices, blockages to intimacy, feeling present, and/or making a difference, then your Flow might want to move toward the Expression Axis as a means of return to its Positive Pole. The above are generic phrases to reference those Axes, and should not be considered definitive. We wished only to give examples for how one might assess where Flow may consciously or subconsciously move when in light of particular patterns in the life. The more consciously one can associate the patterns of the life with various key elements of an Axis, the more consciously one in Flow can then use the Positive Pole of one of those Goals to then help return to Flow's own Positive Pole. [Janet] Will you please provide information on Artisan Casting similar to what you just gave Kurtis for Warrior Casting? [MEntity] Artisan Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of integrity and self-awareness among those with whom this fragment shares experiences and relationships. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who are consistent in "who they are" and are quite clear in their motives. From what we have seen, it can often drive an Artisan-Cast fragment to infuriated tears when others are not cohesive in their sense of motivations or ideals. This means this Casting will tend to gravitate toward those who are quite comfortably-defined, but flexible, in where, how, and who one is as individual, but when this comes to be few and far between, the Artisan-Cast can start to simply make up backstories for all of the participants in the life as a means to bring that sense of consistency. What happens, then, can be a falling into paranoia, gossip, and over-analysis, particularly when that Artisan-Cast cannot seem to get his or her bearings on the motives or ideals of a person or project. Depending on the path of the Artisan-Cast, he or she may then gravitate toward challenging people and experiences that provoke discord, and then this Casting will figure out how to bring harmony.
  5. NWM - Feb 21, 2015 - 7 Stages of Goal Channel: Troy Tolley 09:14:40 AM MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin. Today we are asked to delineate the Goals in terms of measuring one's progression toward a state of fulfillment. To understand the nature of the Goal as an Overleaf, one must understand that there is no end to it, no final state, no ultimate state. There are only polarities, which describe a more objective state, and then there is your experience of those polarities, which are more subjective states. If there were an ultimate state, a Goal could only be used a few times across a few lifetimes. Because there are objective states, the nature of the Goal can be mapped and understood, but because there are subjective states, the same Goal for different people in different lifetimes can bring very different results and experiences. The polarities you see described by our system is objective. Any Soul Age and any Role can use that map for understanding the nature of the Goal. So, Acceptance will always have Agape as a positive pole and Ingratiation as a negative pole for all Roles and Soul Ages. But what "Agape" looks like, feels like, and IS for the Young Soul is very different from what it looks like, feels like, and IS for the Old Soul, because of the subjective state. And even among Old Souls, Agape can bring different experiences because of that subjectivity. So what we will describe today is an elaboration on the objective state because all of you can use that for understanding where you are in the fulfillment of your Goal. To fully understand the nature of a Goal, you must think in terms of a wheel within a wheel. Imagine a circle within a circle, or a donut, if you are so inclined. The inner wheel would be the mapping of the negative pole. The outer wheel would be the mapping of the positive pole. The space between the circles, or the dough of the donut, is the Goal, itself, or the neutral state. For some of our versed students, this mapping might make sense in that the Positive Pole will always be inclusive of the Negative, while the Negative will be restricted and exclusive of the Positive. There is no way for either pole not to be connected, but one is "inside" the other. The donut HOLE, if you will, is a kind of negative space, then. If we are inadvertently encouraging snacking, feel free to do so; the visuals will help. Bobby: lol DianeHB: LOL MEntity: Rather than seeing the Goal as a progression of steps that lead to an end, the Goal is more like a gear that either runs smoothly, or does not. It is your key to your motivation for the lifetime. It is how you use the fuel of experiences. The inner wheel/negative pole, then, is more like a gear that rotates and has a positive wedge, negative wedge, and neutral wedge. We know we are mixing metaphors and analogies, but it is rather necessary. There is no point in the life beyond the first 7 years when the Personality is not working on the Goal. But there does tend to be a "beginning," and that beginning tends to be within that inner gear, or negative pole. The positive and negative wedges of that inner gear are extremes. They are not polarities, but extremes in terms of how that negative gear/pole is functioning. The positive wedge is how that extreme shows up in the outer world, and the negative wedge is how that extreme affects the inner world. The neutral here is how one either brings balance to those extremes, or gets stuck in that gear/pole. GeraldineB: I really don't understand your analogy of using wedges -- the wheels are a good visualization, though MEntity: We are using the gear within a gear, and the parts of each gear because the fulfillment and experience of the Goal is not linear, and one's extremes "rotate" in terms of experiences from one extreme to another and into being stuck or balanced. The gears are always moving. We will build upon and replace this clunky visual in a few moments, but this is an important part of the foundation for understanding what we will share later. Beyond the negative gear/pole and its internal/external extremes and balance/locking parts, there is the Goal, itself. The dough of the donut. Or the space between the inner and outer wheels/gears. No matter where one is in terms of emphasis on the gears, the Goal is present, in effect. Whether one is in Ingratiation or Agape, it is still ACCEPTANCE. In other words, no matter how poorly one is fulfilling Acceptance or how well one is Accepting, the work is still being done on Acceptance. The outer circle/gear, also, has its extremes, its three parts/wedges that reflect the extremes in affecting the outer and inner world. And the balance. GeraldineB: ok -- I "got" wedges finally -- like a pie-chart -- sections of the round MEntity: Yes GeraldineB: I was thinking of a different type of wedge :) MEntity: NOW. To simplify and streamline all of the above, we ask you to toss all of those visuals aside. The gears and donut were only to point out the circular dynamic of each part, and how these function in non-linear ways. We may return to those visuals, but below will be a much cleaner way of understanding how the Goal is mapped, keeping in mind that it is NOT NECESSARILY LINEAR. Continue with the visual of concentric circles, or circles within circles, and this is the order in which a Goal can best be understood and mapped for personal assessment, We will list from the inner-most circle to the outer-most circle. 1 - INNER NEGATIVE EXTREME; 2 - BALANCE or LOCK; 3 - OUTER NEGATIVE EXTREME; 4 - GOAL; 5 - INNER POSITIVE EXTREME; 6 - BALANCE/LOCK; 7 - OUTER POSITIVE EXTREME What tends to be the progression through a Goal is Inner Negative/Outer Negative, Lock/Balance, Inner Positive/Outer Positive, Lock/Balance. This progression is only in terms of introduction through the Goal, but not a linear path that ends. In other words, one will tend to "enter" through the Inner Negative, and then move to the Outer Negative, find herself Locked in the Negative Pole, and eventually find Balance that moves her into Inner Positive Extremes, etc. but she may now easily cycle back to an Inner Negative extreme. ViP2: Is there an inner balance/lock (number 2) and an outer balance/lock (number 6), which are separate? Or are 2 and 6 the same state? MEntity: Visaish, they are different. When locked, they are separated. When in balance, they are connected. So, for example, if one finds balance between the negative extremes, she can now "slide" into the balance of the positive extremes. It may be more accurate to describe "balance" as "resolution." When there is a lock in place, the Goal functions like a gear that is stuck. Motivation starts to halt, and the effort required for moving forward tends to exponentially grow. ViP2: OK thanks, that helps MEntity: When there is resolution, or balance, the gears move again. Since we have used Acceptance as an example, we will delineate Acceptance, first. Though we expect further elaboration upon the terms shared, we will cover them quickly here so that they are on record. Elaboration can come over time. Corresponding to the concentric circles mapped above, we will delineate each Goal now. ACCEPTANCE Inner Negative = EMPTINESS LOCK/BALANCE = INGRATIATION Outer Negative = DESPERATION GOAL – Acceptance Inner Positive = BLIND PERMISSION BALANCE/LOCK = AGAPE Outer Positive = AMORPHOUS LOVE Before continuing to the other Goals, we will elaborare upon the circles above so that the later Goals can benefit from the understanding. Inner Negative Extreme is the very prompt that a fragment will use to launch into a lifetime of Acceptance. This is Emptiness. The most extreme negative of Acceptance is prompted by a sense of emptiness, no form, and s drive to create or discover that form. This is on an inner level and may or may not affect anyone else. When it shifts toward a negative outer extreme, it shifts into Desperation. Both Emptiness and Desperation are parts of Ingratiation, which is the idea that love must be found, earned, deserved. While Ingratiation is the Negative Pole of Agape, it can either be LOCKED or used as a means of passage into the Positive Pole. It may be helpful to think of this in terms of LOCKED/UNLOCKED rather than Locked/Resolution, but both will work because in order to unlock, one must ACCEPT this state of Ingratiation. As soon as one owns his state of Ingratiation, he is unlocking/balancing/resolving this state. Because he is now moving into a more inclusive state, a more positive state. However, as one progresses through Acceptance, there will tend to be a swing between the extremes of the Negative and into the extremes of the Positive. So as one moves away from Ingratiation, he will tend to leap into BLIND PERMISSION. Suddenly, his capacity to love means allowing himself to be, do, say, act in any way he feels motivated. Everything is excused, permissible, justified. He loses a sense of accountability because he is now "loving himself." And this is true. It IS a form of Agape. It is a form of Acceptance. But it is an inner extreme. He will then swing to the outer extreme of "loving everyone" as long as he does not really know them. Facelessness is one of the easiest ways to love. Again, it is still a form of Agape, but it is an outer extreme. It does not have to do the work of loving. He can then LOCK himself into Agape as Blind Permission and Amorphous Love, never truly knowing the fullness of Acceptance. Agape is unlocked and the extremes resolved when he can love in detail, as well as on a large scale. For some in Acceptance, Blind Permission can show up as loving only one or two or three people without question or accountability, but with no effort or interest beyond that. Many who are in abusive relationships can be locked in Agape as Blind Permission. QUESTION: are each of you following what we are sharing, and is this making sense to you? DianeHB: I think so ClaireC: Yes. AnnH: yes Bobby: mhmmm Janet: I think so. Maybe if you provide the stages of another goal so we can see if we can work it out. Most here have Growth. MEntity: We will move to Growth, then. GeraldineB: I think once started, we're going to need all 7 Goals for our full student body Janet: Well, and at least Geraldine and I would appreciate Discrimination and Dominance for ourselves today. Janet: Oh and Flow for Diane ViP2: I feel that this is making sense for me so far, yes - I'd like to apply what was explained for Acceptance to the other goals to understand more fully MEntity: Growth Inner Negative = ESCAPE LOCK/BALANCE = CONFUSION Outer Negative = RESISTANCE GOAL - GROWTH Inner Positive = STIMULATION/FRICTION BALANCE/LOCK = EVOLUTION Outer Positive = RECOGNITION Discrimination Inner Negative = LOATHING LOCK/BALANCE = REJECTION Outer Negative = IMPOSITION GOAL - DISCRIMINATION Inner Positive = EXPECTATION BALANCE/LOCK = REFINEMENT Outer Positive = RIGHTEOUSNESS Dominance Inner Negative = CHAOS LOCK/BALANCE = DICTATORSHIP Outer Negative = DISTRUST GOAL - DOMINANCE Inner Positive = WORTH BALANCE/LOCK = LEADERSHIP Outer Positive = ORDER Flow Inner Negative = DIVISION LOCK/BALANCE = INERTIA Outer Negative = DISTANCE GOAL - FLOW Inner Positive = DIRECTION BALANCE/LOCK = FREEDOM Outer Positive = CONTRIBUTION QUEUE OPEN: we can now take questions about these delineations, terms, or anything regarding the topic. Bobby: You said: Inner Negative Extreme is the very prompt that a fragment will use to launch into a lifetime of (fill in the blank Goal). Why is that? What is it that prompts this? MEntity: The Inner Negative of each Goal is an inherent quality in fragmentation. As fragments, there will always be these inner extremes. To activate a Goal for a Personality, Essence sets up prompts in the life that will play on those inner extremes as a means to jump start the Goal, the motivation of exploration and experience for the life. Because birthing is a manifestation of that fragmentation, it is easy to access these inner extremes quite early in the life, and even subconsciously. These wane in intensity as Essence evolves, but the validity of these qualities remain and can be used for every lifetime. AnnH: I am perhaps being too literal here. But for example in Growth... The Outer Extreme is Recognition. Whose recognition and how is it manifested? MEntity: In all inner or outer states, the term can be used to describe how you bring that to others, or how others bring that to you. For example, in RECOGNITION as an Outer Extreme, it can play out as either your receiving feedback that recognizes your evolution, but that your evolution is dependent upon that feedback, or it may show up as your evolution depending upon your recognition of the growth of others. In either way it shows up, it is about recognizing that you have grown, that you have evolved. AnnH: How does Righteousness for Discrimination work with this? MEntity: It is an "extreme" because the sense of evolution can often be locked until this growth is brought to your attention. Righteousness is an outer positive extreme because those in Discrimination learn that they truly are often RIGHT. But their idea of what is right can go to extremes in that they consciously or subconsciously shut out insight, input, and challenge. Their righteousness is upheld as a means of Refinement, but it can be locked if that righteousness is locked as the only standard, however accurate it may be. This can be experienced in the other direction, as well, when the person in Discrimination bumps up against the Righteousness of others. That input of Righteousness can either call into question that person's sense of Right, or prompt an impasse if that person's own Righteousness is upheld without flexibility. Are these making sense? Janet: yes ClaireC: They are to me. AnnH: Yes. AnnH: It helps to see the movement--how it slides around and is NOT linear. Janet: In general I think I recognize the states of Dominance. I just want to clarify one thing: For Acceptance you said that to unlock the negative pole, "one must ACCEPT this state of Ingratiation". Did you use the verb ACCEPT because the goal was Acceptance? For example, does the verb change to DOMINATE for Dominance? (Dominate a state of Dictatorship?) Or does the word ACCEPT apply to all? MEntity: The verb changes. Janet: Somehow that seems right. I can’t explain it, but this makes sense to me — at least in terms of my own goal of Dominance. MEntity: We will elaborate: DOMINANCE is the process of learning to use influence and presence. When you are in Chaos or Distrust, you are in extremes and Dictatorship seems to be the answer, or imposing absolute authority. To unlock oneself from Dictatorship, you must INFLUENCE, not CONTROL. You must DOMINATE your Dictatorship, or bring your presence and influence back into the picture rather than locking yourself away from the chaos and distrust through control or absolutes. In other words, take control over your control. Does this make sense to you? Janet: Oh yes. Absolutely. MEntity: We will conclude with this final question, and complete the delineation of the Goals outside of this exchange. ViP2: hi Michael - can you provide similar elaboration for Growth as you just did for Dominance in response to Janet's question? MEntity: Yes, we can. ViP2: Would you, then? :-) MEntity: GROWTH is the process of learning how to create meaning. When you are in Escape or Resistance, you are in CONFUSION. Or, rather, when you are Resistant or seeking Escape, CONFUSION seems to be the answer or solution. CONFUSION is the rejection of the consequences of choice. As long as you are confused, you cannot be held accountable for your choices. That is the theory, at least, when in the negative pole. Confusion can come when one does not like the choices from which to choose, or when one has generated so many directions of choice, it is terrifying to choose. To unlock oneself from Confusion, it can be helpful to GROW UP. GROWTH is all about creating meaning, but there is responsibility in the creation of meaning, so Growth is also about owning one's responsibility. In other words, your confusion is your own, not that of someone else's. Your confusion is yours to resolve, not to use for hiding until someone else makes your choices for you. So if you think in terms of GROW UP, this helps one to make even the most incremental of moves toward responsibility and this is Evolution. Does this make sense to you? ClaireC: Yes, it does. AnnH: Yes indeed. ViP2: Partly, but it feels like a fine line between growing up "from the inside", and growing up based on external/societal expectations. ViP2: Or not a fine line, but something that would require constant attention to not fall into. The latter wouldn't really be growing up, I think. ViP2: The former being growing up based on what one really wants, not what is expected from the outside. ViP2: Otherwise, it does make sense. MEntity: That may be because of the charged phrasing. We are not stating it as a shaming, but as a way to use the term GROWTH as a verb in helping you move out of Confusion. By "GROW UP" here we mean that YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO CHOOSE. USE IT. EVEN IF THAT CHOICE IS NOT TO CHOOSE. IT IS A CHOICE, AND YOU OWNED IT. AND THAT IS EVOLUTION. Did that help clarify? ViP2: Yes. I feel that I get that and it is inclusive, and not narrow in focus. ViP2: Yes, thank you Michael ClaireC: Excellent definition of Growing up. MEntity: We know Troy expected a linear delineation of the Goals in a way that could help navigate progress, but Goals do not function in such a way. We think our delineation will help each of you to understand the broad variations of how you have progressed in your Goal, cycled through, moved around, and how better to take actions to your liking and benefit so that your motivations runs smoothly. ViP2: Do the other overleaves/role/casting function in a similarly nonlinear way (for future questions?) MEntity: Each functions differently, and each is worth exploring in their delineation. Good day to each of you. We will conclude here, for today. 12:26:47 PM [Edit: added by Troy - Submission and Re-Evalutation] Submission Inner Negative = INVISIBILITY LOCK/BALANCE = SUBSERVIENCE Outer Negative = OBSESSION GOAL - SUBMISSION Inner Positive = FAITH BALANCE/LOCK = DEVOTION Outer Positive = INVESTMENT Re-evaluation Inner Negative = LONELINESS LOCK/BALANCE = WITHDRAWAL Outer Negative = REPELLING GOAL - RE-EVALUATION Inner Positive = SEDENTARY BALANCE/LOCK = SIMPLICITY Outer Positive = SENSITIVITY

    Energy Report: MAY 2011

    ENERGY REPORT MAY 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) APRIL began the shift of emphasis from the Goal for the year toward the Mode for the year. Caution is the Mode for 2011. When the shift into the Mode begins, the emphasis on relationships begins. With Caution being the theme this year, some of the more challenging of your relationships, or issues within your relationships, may come to the surface for addressing. In this case, we see that many who are choosing to align with this collective energy have decided to take on an area of relationship that has fallen into Phobia, the negative pole of Caution. The Mode is the part of the Personality that supports the Goal, and in doing so, it must support Relationships, as most Goals cannot be fulfilled without some form of Relating and Networking. In short, to truly explore the spectrum of a Goal, you must include parts of the self that have become fragments, and include others to some degree. Every Mode is either a path through freedom or refinement of a certain relating style. The 7 Modes, then, could be described as: Reserve: reaching your Goal by refining your emotions Passion: reaching your Goal by freeing your emotions Caution: reaching your Goal by refining your thoughts Power: reaching your Goal by freeing your thoughts Perseverance: reaching your Goal by refining your actions Aggression: reaching your Goal by freeing your actions Observation: reaching your Goal by observing and using the Mode most appropriate for the occasion. Once a collective Goal has been established for the year, then the building and fulfillment of Agreements tends to begin to fall into place in support of that Goal. In this case, the Goal is Flow, which means that the intent this year would be for the exploration of the spectrum between Freedom and Inertia, which we have covered in our previous reports through Troy. Because most of our students who have aligned with this collective energy for the year chose to work through the issues of the Negative Pole of Caution, first, this means that most of our students, over the time between April and June, will probably come head to head with some of the more challenging issues within themselves, or between themselves and others, in a way that potentially, permanently alters the thought processes associated with those Phobias/fears. Caution is the refinement of THOUGHTS as a path toward a Goal, and if the Goal is to Flow, or to move toward an inclusive, embracing Freedom, then any thoughts that lock any relationships, internally or externally, away from Freedom would probably come to the surface. Phobia is a paralysis, or a freezing of thought patterns, so that nothing can move beyond those thoughts. Deliberation is the slowing down of thoughts so that other processes can be included alongside those thoughts. When one has fallen into Phobia, the tendency is then to turn to Caution’s partner Mode, which is Power. Power Mode is the Freeing of your thoughts by owning them, being present with them, taking responsibility for them. The positive pole of Power Mode is Authority, and this can be translated into Presence, Ownership, Responsible in terms of one’s thoughts about the self in relation to other. To break the paralysis of Phobia, many of our students may find that they are gently or surprisingly confronted with outdated thoughts, old scenarios, archaic thinking patterns about certain relationships that then have the opportunity to be met with more responsible thinking, more presence, and more ownership of the results of one’s thinking in relation to these relationships; more Authority. This ownership of thought patterns can then return the relationship back into a more Deliberate path of thinking, the positive pole of Caution. This would not mean revelations or miraculous recoveries, but a soft merging of opportunity for creating NEW thoughts, together, Cautiously, but Deliberately. For those who may find this familiar to them over April, May, and June, it would do you well to remember, if you choose to do so, that this is a process, not a pivot. In other words, a kind of self-vigilance and patience is order to help secure any new thought patterns you would like to establish. For most who take on this exploration of Relationships, the new core of that process would probably be comfortably re-established or rejected by the end of June. Helpful thoughts over MAY might be: 1) YOU AND ME MAKE WE Though many fragments can tend to feel alone, there is actually never a moment in which a person is not in a relationship with others. In fact, in most instances of loneliness and feelings of isolation, the person has developed such feelings only from his or her thoughts about what he or she thinks OTHERS think about him or her. Changing or updating how one thinks others think about oneself can help to transform one’s relationship with the self and world, as a whole. Keeping this in mind over the months of April, May, and June can help one to approach those challenged relationships from a fresh perspective, from a clean slate, and to potentially transform the sense of self as it relates to others, and thus help manifest more of the True Personality and Essence. To the degree that one has locked oneself down by what one thinks others are thinking, contributes to the degree to which one has blocked Essence. Ultimately, the concept of the “individual” is a lie. There is truly, only, “we.” Even the individual is a conglomerations of parts; a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts, but a conglomeration, nonetheless. 2) RELATING DOES NOT EQUATE RELIVING Returning to relationships that have fallen into challenge, paralysis, or inertia does not mean one has to relive the patterns that led to those challenges, paralysis or inertia. Returning to a relationship that suffers challenges is a cultivation of new possibilities, new facets, new perspectives, new thoughts. The past may need to be addressed, but that does not mean it has to be relived. Relating is the process of empathy, and in addressing the past, the key to healing would be through the capacity you have for relating, even remotely, to any part of the other person’s experience. This does not mean giving permission, justification, or power over to the other person who may have harmed you, but it does mean planting that “seed” of transformation that is Empathy, or Compassion. Sometimes the greatest relief in a relationship is not through finding fault, or by imposing punishment, but to have one, both, or all parties suddenly comprehend the relief of being seen, heard, and/or understood. If even one part of the equation experiences this, the effects can tend to be a cascading effect throughout the relationships. DATES OF INTEREST MAY 22nd - a convergence nexus focused on emerging relationships and agreements

    Energy Report: MARCH 2011

    ENERGY REPORT MARCH 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH continues the emphasis on the establishment of Priest, Moving Center, and FLOW for the year, showing up strongly in the political and religious riots, protests, surprise earthquakes, and extreme weather patterns. All of these events are related in some way to the energies that are described by the Overleaves for this year, in particular to Priest, Moving, and Flow. We mentioned in our previous report that this appears to be a year of patterns that we could describe as emphasizing the struggle between FREEDOM and INERTIA, which are the Positive and Negative Poles of FLOW, and that this would be a year that emphasizes RIGHTS through the Priestly energy that holds fast with Compassion or Zeal in its AIM OF VISION. This is being played out in the most literal of ways through the powerful protests and uprising among the awakening Mature Souls on your planet in areas where the dominance of the Young and Baby paradigms simply do not work any longer. The patterns unfolding into March appear to continue these uprisings, in fact, encouraging more. On an individual level, and for the Older Souls, the qualities described above may also be in effect in some way, but in more private and localized ways. In other words, each may be confronting his or her own internal or external oppressor, giving rise to behaviors that are intended to break free from patterns that are not in keeping with personal ideas of Freedom. In addition to this, there may actually be symbolic, internal “storms” that have come to the surface, putting one in a position that must exercise even greater focus, or succumb to those forces. For those who are struggling to stand against his or her oppressor, it is vital that one determine exactly what or who that is. For the older souls, it is most often a vague and haunting force from the past, an internal voice, that generates a pattern of behavior that may have been manageable in general, but is no longer acceptable. For most of our older students, we can say that there is little that has happened in the first few months of your year of 2011 that is not about your redefinition, upgrading, or implementation of your definition of FREEDOM. Of course, this definition must go through a clarification period, so some of you may have found yourselves “sliding” to various other directions described by other Goals, such as Submission, Growth, Acceptance, etc. For most of our students, we have seen this “sliding” happening in the direction of Re-evaluation, which means that our students have either turned to Simplicity, the positive pole of Re-evaluation, and have reduced life, activity, and focus down to the bare minimum so as to grasp exactly where the obstacles to freedom are; or some have fallen into the negative pole of Re-evaluation and have interpreted this simplification process as a complete Withdrawal from the life force, from the sense of being alive. Of course, those who have fallen into Withdrawal will also feel the negative pole of Flow, which is Inertia, so that life either feels as if it is at a stand-still, or it is moving with a momentum in a direction that is entirely out of their control to change. For those who have fallen into the sense that one has withdrawn from life, it is important to remember that this period of time is temporary, and a matter of simplification so that you can clarify exactly what it is you want and need as a means to secure a sense of Flow, a sense of Freedom. Keep in mind what we suggested in our previous report: clarifying an “aim of vision” for 2011 is vital to the sense of accomplishment, security, and flow of the year. For those who had a clear “aim of vision” as the year has begun, March will most likely begin to expose the tools, agreements, inspiration, and directions that are directly supportive of that aim. Helpful thoughts over MARCH might be: 1) AIM OF VISION Clarifying at least one thing that is important for you to create, change, accept, or upgrade over 2011 will help you to establish a momentum that is aligned with your idea of flow and freedom. Having that single focus will cascade outward to affect other goals and intentions, naturally. 2) BEHAVIOR IS A PATH TO FREEDOM Acknowledging your behavior as part of the obstacle to your sense of freedom will help you to change the patterns that have led you up to a wall, isolation, or hurdle in your life. Then the struggle is no longer against something vague, or against anything at all, but turns its emphasis toward something that can change, can be redirected, and can show results. We point this out because this is a Moving Centered year, so what you DO makes a big difference in what you experience and create. 3) SIMPLIFICATION DOES NOT HAVE TO EQUAL SUFFERING When your life moves into a state of simplification, it does not have to hurt. There is always grieving involved in the process of simplification because there is always a sense of loss, but grief does not have to lead to suffering. Grief is a gateway, not a conclusion. It is okay to grieve the redirections, the sense of loss, and the sense that things must change; this is healthy. It is a process of accepting the truth. But the more you allow yourself to accept or create the truths that come from simplification and grief, the more you allow yourself to accept or create the directions that bring a sense of freedom to the life. DATES OF INTEREST March 10th through 13th - a divergence nexus focused on directions between freedom and collapse March 21st through 23rd - a recalibration nexus focused on course corrections realized from the previous nexus

    Energy Report: MARCH 2009

    As March comes into passing, it appears to us that the positive pole of the Goal of Flow (freedom) will finally find some emphasis for many of our students. The experience of just "letting life happen" and "going with the flow" may come to feel fairly comfortable and familiar to many as March unfolds. It looks to us to be quite a "slippery" month, in that to navigate it one may find that trying to control events or plan too strictly is simply burdensome. March may feel as if it comes and goes rather quickly for most of our students, but it also looks to have potential for leaving some playful, important, and pivotal moments. Despite it's slipping by rather quickly, it appears to be one of the more productive months of these first three months of the year, though much of what will seem productive in retrospect may have seemed frivolous or whimsical at the time. In addition to all of this, we see that many of you who have lived with frustrating, repetitive, and paralyzing patterns within the life may find some relief if you follow through with your sense of inspiration. This means a break from addictions, from solitude, from boredom, from anxiety, from most of the more unappealing patterns that may have felt imposed upon you for the past months or years. This will not mean they are gone, but that a break can be experienced and this break can help bring you clues as to how to implement a permanent break, if you choose to follow through and make a change in the direction your life flows. We do not have much to say about March because of this emphasis on Flow, but we can offer a few key areas of awareness as you navigate the month. When one is dealing with an emphasis on Flow, it can sometimes be confusing as to what is more important for considering: the internal flow or the external flow. In other words, if one is pressed to make a choice, there are often a few clear paths revealed externally, but internally there is a resistance and a focus in other directions that are far more appealing to the Personality. What we suggest in times where Flow is a priority is to consider the EXTERNAL paths of flow over your internal paths. While your internal navigation is certainly important and valid, if one wants to flow, or move toward freedom, it important to consider what is presenting itself to you in the moment. We are not speaking of completely disregarding your internal flow, but that when it comes to material or external world directions and navigation, it is often far more accurate to your path than your internal, often over-thought, over-emotional data bank of possibilities. For example, if you are in a situation where you are losing your home and two people have offered to help in your transition or nurturing during that loss, it can often be met internally with resistance and an effort to figure out other options so that you are not in a dependent situation. This is a valid response and if one can find a solution to match the internal ideal, then that can be followed if one chooses to follow it, however, when situations arise and offers for solutions present themselves, those solutions are often an important part of a faster recovery or move in a desired direction, even if on the surface it does not appeal to you. This does not mean you have to take an offer that is profoundly distasteful or repulsive to you, but that it is Good Work to explore whether your Chief Negative Features (or Fear) is keeping you from a clearer external path than what you can find internally at the moment. KEY WORDS and PHRASES for MARCH might be: WHICH IS EASIER? However begrudging or resistant you may be, which path presenting itself to you honestly feels easier? If you find that sticking to your internal ideals is keeping you stuck, versus being open to a path that is presenting itself, it may be important to consider that clearer path; if you choose to do so. WHICH IS MORE FUN? Again, however begrudging or resistant you may be, which path presenting itself could be quite an adventure and add to your spectrum of skills and experiences? It's not always about matching your internal ideals that may only be concerned with superficial levels, but about your deeper needs for adventure, freedom, and expression. LIFE IS AN EXPERIMENT, not a PRESCRIPTION Keeping in mind that that your life is not condemned to previous experiences, patterns, or expectations can help to free many of you from trying to squeeze your world into self-imposed or socially-imposed constraints of prescription. In other words, what you bring to life, how you live it, where you choose to go, how you choose to go, and whether it is "good for you," or not is all for you to determine. We are not speaking here of crossing boundaries with your choices in a way that would harm others, unless you choose to do so, though the repercussions of that are often quite unpleasant and counterproductive, but that your personal sphere of creativity is YOUR sphere with which anything can be done. This freedom is something that allows for your experimentation, which will include disappointments, failures, and pain, but it is yours. It is not always necessary to be "safe," or to move through the life by the prescriptions that come from consensus.

    Energy Report: MARCH 2013

    ENERGY REPORT March 2013 2013 OVERLEAVES ROLE: SAGE (emphasized all year) CENTER: INTELLECTUAL (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW > acceptance/discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: POWER (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: IDEALIST (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: SELF-DESTRUCTION (emphasized Oct - Dec) *************** The full force of the positive or negative poles of Flow comes into focus over the month of March, with a nice embrace of a sense of Freedom, or a serious struggle with Inertia. The way one can tell the difference is as with most experiences as described by positive and negative poles: the positive tends to feel better. If you are experiencing the positive pole of Flow, you would tend to feel as if you have plenty of time, that your pace is comfortable, and that obstacles can be navigated. Freedom (the positive pole) does not mean easy, but it does tend to bring a confidence that allows for more graceful navigation. If you are experiencing the negative pole of Flow, you may find that you feel a nagging pull in a direction that you might wish to ignore, but that you know is impending as an obligation, or that you are being pulled in a direction that you resent having to negotiate, or that you have begun to invest in as deep a distraction as possible from the direction you seem to be moving. As March unfolds, there is a kind of collective support being generated for all who wish to surrender to the flow of the life, and to negotiate the responsibilities that come with it, so that movement and direction and meaning can return. It may seem daunting and unappealing to tend to the flow that your life is taking at the moment, but the reason one benefits from this is because you can then steer your life, instead of simply struggling against the current. The flow of one’s life is not an imposition, but a culmination of choices and actions that have generated a momentum. Sometimes the long-term results of long-term choices can reveal some difficult or unappealing directions, but these can be altered if you are present and steering your way. You may not be able to reverse the flow, but you can alter that flow. How one manages to feel one’s sense of Freedom vs Inertia in the life over March will help determine how the MODE comes into focus in April, which is POWER. Helpful thoughts over MARCH might be: PAIN IS RESISTANCE IS INFORMATION All pain is a result of resistance. This does not make pain or resistance “bad,” but they are inextricably connected. Pain is not an indication of “bad,” but of resistance. Lifting weights or exercising can bring pain, but there is benefit from this. Running into a wall, or stubbing a toe can bring pain, too, but these are informative of your navigational stumbles, not meant to be “bad.” Pain is always an indication of resistance. It is that simple. If the needle is fine enough, one does not feel much of the pinch of a shot to the arm, but run a serrated knife over the skin, and you will feel great pain. The pain one feels in anticipation of a shot is often much worse than the actual pain of the shot because there is more psychological resistance. Resistance to communication when communication is necessary can be painful. Resistance to responsibility brings pain. Resistance in weight-lifting brings pain, too, and there can be benefit. Severity of pain is measured in intensity and longevity. Long-term resistance can bring long-term illnesses or chronic pain. Sometimes pain can be immensely intense, but because it is for a moment, it is not difficult to overcome. Sometimes pain can be more like a cocooning that begins to dim the senses, closing down sensation, building resistance, and leading to apathy, depression, temper, and rage. When you feel pain, there is information there. It is filled with insight about your life in immediate, short-term, and long-term ways. For the point of this Energy Report, we will just suggest that as you move through March, you may find where you are most resistant by paying attention to the various versions of pain in your life, and examining the what and why of your resistance. Keep in mind that you may not have those answers right away, but paying attention to your impulses, and deciding to follow the flow of your life, to trust, your answers and insights would come. DATES OF INTEREST March 15 -- NEXUS - another Divergence generated by continued resignation to inertia. Parts of “you” will spin off into variations of itself to accommodate the resistance to the responsibility of the flow of the life. March 20 - 23 -- -- DREAMTIME - paying attention to dreams over this period of time can help gain some insight into your look at how you will work with POWER in the months ahead, particularly in terms of how you relate to others, to your life, and to your projects.
  10. ENERGY REPORT February 2013 2013 OVERLEAVES ROLE: SAGE (emphasized all year) CENTER: INTELLECTUAL (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW > acceptance/discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: POWER (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: IDEALIST (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: SELF-DESTRUCTION (emphasized Oct - Dec) *************** February brings with it more of the emphasis on the Goal of Flow for the year. There is often a misconception about the nature of the Goal in our Overleaves system, which is that the Goal must describe a characteristic already in place for a Personality, or in this case, for the year. For someone who has a Goal of Acceptance, then, it would be presumed that this person is accepting and easy to accept. For those in Growth, it is often presumed that they eagerly seek out challenges that stretch them. For those in Flow, that their lives are relaxing, easy-going, smooth, and fairly unchallenged. The Goal describes a quality one intends to extract from the lifetime, but does not describe the characteristics of a person. Many who are in Acceptance are in Acceptance because they want to learn to be more Accepting and acceptable, not because they have already secured those qualities. Those in Growth often have to make the effort to get up off of the couch and do something that encourages their growth, because it is a Goal to Grow. The Goal of Flow does not mean one is moving smoothly, is more relaxed, in life, but that one is seeking to learn how to navigate challenges, and to flow and adapt. Until one has gained enough experience with a Goal in a lifetime, the obvious symptoms of it may not be clear, and may even seem to be counter to the Goal. In addition to this, all spectrums described by poles are entered through the more restrictive negative pole, and then expanded upon from experience as a way toward the more inclusive positive pole. And so it is for the year ahead as it represents the themes of Flow. It does not mean the year will start off as an easy, relaxing time, but more likely that there will be an effort to alter momentum, to move from Inertia, the Negative Pole, and toward the Positive Pole of Freedom. As February brings Flow into emphasis, then, it would tend to be as a mix of breaking the momentum and inertia of patterns that you prefer to break, and beginning to provide some structure for the direction of flow you would prefer your life to go. The need for structure may be on the rise for many of our students as the month moves forward, even if only as passing thoughts that hint at this vital ingredient for peace and calm in the life. Flow does not mean one must concede to the inertia and momentum of force that is already in place. Along with the capacity to navigate the flow of a life, the Goal of Flow is also about gaining the skill of shifting that flow. A river may not be able to be stopped, but it can be managed and directed by any number of methods. Many people presume that for a life to be calm, peaceful, and abundant, the aim would be for those qualities, themselves, and those are valuable aims, but they overshoot the securing of ingredients that actually create and sustain calm, peace, and abundance. Those terms tend to describe symptoms and effects from having fulfilled foundational structures that then allow for peace, calm, and abundance to be built upon or within. The Soul Ages reflect this process of securing foundational structures that allow for more encompassing structures. Not much can be done with a life if survival is the primary focus, so until survival is secured,and it is not feasible to expect civility or order. Once the structure of survival is secured, then the capacity for being civilized and ordered can come. Once the structure of civilized order is in place, then the fulfillment of individuality and competitiveness can come. Once the structure of winning and having has been fulfilled, then the empathy can come. Once the structure of empathy and compassion is in place, then the greater contexts existence can be pondered. As February unfolds into March, then, we would tend to see many being prompted by impulses that would help to provide structures in the life that would allow for greater flow, greater freedom, and help to shift the momentum of any forces already in place. Impulses are inviting, not imposing, so they may easily be ignored or overlooked. There may come to be confusion around how to focus or move forward in preferred directions because when the Goal is Flow, it would “make sense” to throw out the ideals of plans, structure, and focus, trusting that “everything will work out,” or conversely feeling as if the momentum is just too much, so efforts would make little difference. And this is why there is a Goal of Flow, because it is a skill, a quality that must be sustained and managed consciously, and not something that simply should be, or that is acquired and completed. A Goal in our system is a Goal because it is a fuel, a motivation, not a finish line. A Goal is like breathing is to your body. Because you were able to complete a circle of breathing in and breathing out does not mean you must never breathe again. You must continue breathing. A Goal is like breath to your Personality and Essence. It will continue until “the end.” Breathing can be taken for granted, improved upon, deepened, be shallow, be strained, but once it stops, so does the life. The Goal is similar. It is always in effect, because it is not something to perfect, but something that fuels experience. The Goal as part of the Overleaves for a year are much easier to dismiss, and are not priorities, but the Goal does reflect the fuel for collective sentience over any given time; in this case, a year. If you find you are noticing a quiet, inviting impulse for certain actions, it is probably because you are hooked into the collective consciousness of our sentience, and contributing your part to the experience of learning how to choose to shift your personal momentum and inertia into a preferable flow toward freedom. As February moves toward March, the forces of inertia, or the shift toward freedoms will tend to become more and more apparent. The more one has resigned to inertia, the more likely there would tend to be a sense of limbo, distraction, or constant bumping up against the edges and obstacles of the life. The more one has begun to listen to impulses, has begun to put into effect some structure for the forces of life, then the freedom to exist upon and within it can start to show symptoms of calm, peace, and abundance. Helpful thoughts over FEBRUARY might be: IGNORING YOUR IMPULSION LEAVES ROOM FOR COMPULSION Impulses will never push you to do something, will rarely feel pressing, and will never impose themselves as priorities, because impulses indicate paths that require full participation and active choice, even if they are strong urges. Impulses can tend to appear to be either more daunting or evasive as paths. Compulsion is very different from this, and is difficult to ignore. Compulsion tends form from the vacuum created in life by the lack of active choice, from fear, and from obligation and force. Compulsion and Impulsion, both, will be a part of every life, but as consciousness evolves, so does the preference and effort for fulfilling impulses over compulses. Fulfillment of impulses do not have the same immediate pay-off or gratification that compulsions might seem to promise, but the fulfillment grows from steady, meaningful, cumulative ways that steer the life in directions of preference, with Essence, even when the impulses seem completely unrelated to your presumed intention and direction. Ignoring your impulses will not stop you from living or having experiences from which you can build upon, but the greater the lack of attention to impulses, the greater the demand of compulsion. DATES OF INTEREST February 11-15 - NEXUS - a Divergence generated by resignation to inertia, or the active contribution to collective redirection. Before, during, or after this period, within 2 weeks, it can be quite inspiring and motivating to put into effect any effort toward the structures that will increase your capacity for peace, calm, abundance, and freedom. This can be done at any time in the life, of course, but we mention it here because there is a collective, “energetic support” for that effort now.
  11. ENERGY REPORT JANUARY 2013 NOTE: please add in a reply any other channels' overleaves for the year REVIEW: WHAT IS AN ENERGY REPORT and "OVERLEAVES FOR THE YEAR?" Though energies shift, change, and adapt all year, there is a general energy that can be said to affect the calendar year, at least in terms of your shared reality. Our Overleaves system can be used to describe any collection of energies, ranging from the dynamics of the actual Personality to the general “mood” of a room, society, fictional character, theme of groups, or a planet’s general atmosphere of consciousness. In addition to this, when a block of time is selected, that time frame can be translated into a description of energies based on what we perceive as the momentum of events, consciousness, and choices that will POTENTIALLY contribute to that period of time. The Overleaves for a year, then, are our interpretation of those events, consciousness, and choices as we see that they are most likely to be brought to bear in your world. The more participating one is in “the world,” the more likely these energies will be of concern, though one’s inactivity does not exempt one from world or local energies, anymore than staying inside can take away the fact of a rainstorm. The rainstorm outside can have as much an effect on one inside as on one who is outside, depending on personal interpretations and experiences of that rainstorm. The very basic energy, or basic context, of a year can be described in two Overleaves: the Role and the Center. These two basic energies are those that can contribute to your year feeling "comfortable" or "challenged" during the year unfolding, depending on your own Overleaves and your method of participation in "the world." These two energies are most obvious in the first three months of a year, but their effects will remain steady throughout the year. It can be said that ALL of the Overleaves we use to describe the year are in effect ALL year, but the particular frames of time described below are the "seasonal" emphasis of those particular Overleaf qualities. General “Seasonal” Energy emphasis: The ENTIRE YEAR is based within the energies described by the ROLE and CENTERING. January through March implements and emphasizes the GOAL. April through June implements and emphasizes the MODE. July through September implements and emphasizes the ATTITUDE. October through December implements and emphasizes the CHIEF FEATURE. ************* 2013 OVERLEAVES ROLE: SAGE (emphasized all year) CENTER: INTELLECTUAL (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW > acceptance/discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: POWER (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: IDEALIST (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: SELF-DESTRUCTION (emphasized Oct - Dec) *************** January opens with some amount of fallout from the Stubbornness of 2012. This has carried over so strongly that it appears to have affected even the most free from Chief Features. By this we mean that the energy turned into something more palpable than simple “psychological weather,” if you will, and appears to have manifested in the navigation of days in the body. Many who really had no part in contributing to the wave of Stubbornness of 2012 may have come to experience the launch of 2013 with strange memory lapses, confusion, clumsiness, accidents, mistakes, etc. This is because those who are open to the “energies” of the collective conscious usually count on the collective shift away from the season of Chief Features of the year before, and open widely to the possibilities generated by the move into a new year, a new cycle. The investment in Stubbornness by so many toward the end of 2012 has already “locked on” to the Self-Destruction that would tend to only be emphasized during the season of Chief Features toward the end of 2013. Because Stubbornness is at the hub of all Chief Negative Features, it “slid” to Self-destruction immediately. If you have experienced your start to 2013 as being marked by bumbling, accidents, confusion, memory lapses, sleepiness, disorientation, day dreaming, distraction, etc. you may have hooked into this anomalous, collective energy. It will pass, but understanding that it is not a sign of anything more than your openness can bring some amount of clarity. Until February comes, it may be beneficial to not take your movements and choices and habits for granted, but to bring about more presence and focus as it comes to mind. In addition to this, the year has launched into a year of Flow, or Relaxation, which tends to shift most into an expanded openness to “whatever is coming my way,” or “wherever I may be going.” There is a lack of sense of structure, at first, and this tends to emphasize any areas of the life where blockages are already inherent, but ready to shift. For example, if you started out your hear experiencing confusion, you may be ready to bring in more emphasis this year on focus and presence. If you have become clumsy, you may be heading toward more emphasis on coordination and physical exercise. If you have been exhausted or distracted, it may be that you need more access to outdoors, sunlight, and nature. Wherever you find yourself “bumping up against” things, these are messages and information about areas ready to shift with a flow that is far more aligned with you than otherwise. For those whose year has begun smoothly, this may be indicative of your making choices that have insulated you from greater influences and energies so that you could accomplish particular endeavors. The year has also shifted from an Instinctive-Centered year into an Intellectually-Centered year. Last year was a process of exploring anything and everything that was being blocked or run by choices motivated distinctly by fear or love. As you look over 2012, you may see quite clearly when you chose to listen to fear, and when you chose to listen to love. By “fear” and “love,” we mean the difference between choices for protecting and defending yourself, and choices where you took risks, trusted, followed impulses and resonance, and chose paths of pleasure and well-being. The year 2012 could be said to have been run by the navigation between hot and cold, finding the right temperature that suits you, possibly being “burned” or “frozen” along the way. That is an Instinctive year. It is a navigation based on immediate feedback. As the Intellectual year unfolds, you may find yourself returning to a sense of insight, perspective, and philosophical values on the positive end of the intellect, but possibly falling to over-thinking, reasoning, and justification in the negative pole. Many will start the year from the negative pole and move toward the positive as the year gains momentum, so it would not be surprising to us if many of our students are overwhelming the intellect with ideas, plans, goals, agendas that could prove to bring the over-thinking, reasoning, justification, and excuses as the month moves forward. It may be important to you, then, to remember that the intellect is not just for analyzing and planning, but for gaining insight into the most beneficial patterns and paths along the way. If your plans or intentions go awry, the intellect can help if you allow for insight, but if you simply resort to excuses, reasoning, and over-analysis, you may find yourself falling into Inertia, the negative pole of FLOW. With the shift into 2013 being a Sage year, we would think that many of you would, eventually, begin to emphasize play, communication, laughter, innocence, and choices that lead to sharing joy, but this may also show up as falling into drama, over-expressiveness (over intellectual, often mistaken as being “over emotional”), feeling invisible, needing to be seen, being obnoxious and throwing tantrums (internally or externally). As you move through 2013, remember that a great deal of emphasis will tend to be on how to play and have fun while learning and sharing, and this can trigger a tremendous amount of self-karma for the older souls who have resisted or refused to embrace their “inner child,” or who have felt their sense of innocence and aliveness has been lost to the past. We will speak more to this as the year unfolds. Helpful thoughts over JANUARY might be: GOING WITH THE FLOW MEANS LEARNING HOW TO PADDLE “Going with the flow,” or the Goal of Flow, does not simply mean that one must be pushed around by forces one cannot control, but that one learns to differentiate between the forces that one can control, and those forces one cannot. There will always be both, however out of proportion they may be one to the other. When one recognizes where one has no control, there will always be some amount of control from within that. As the figurative river rapids that you sometimes come across move you along in life, you can use your paddle to stay upright, to keep moving, to avoid rocks and debris. In life, this translates into using your capacity to be alert, focused, aware, in conjunction with your most powerful “paddle” in life: choice. However diminished or limited it may be in any moment, you will have it, and it can keep you moving forward, past the debris and obstacles rushing toward you, owning any choices you make from within those limitations. If you “crash,” the same applies. One can only do so much in overwhelming circumstances, but even the most seemingly insignificant of choices within that overwhelm of greater forces can make all of the difference in the world. As you learn to “paddle,” Flow comes to be an ally, and a force that is part of you, rather than over you. DATES OF INTEREST January 5-8 -- NEXUS - a Divergence generated by collective Stubbornness, with those realities more free of it to move on, and those invested in it amplifying it, particularly in politics and international events. January 27 -- this is not a prediction, but a mention of a potential astronomical phenomenon of interest.
  12. Michael Speaks Live January 22, 2012 Review of 2011 and Preview of 2012 Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin with some discussion of 2011, its Overleaves, and major events, before discussion of 2012, its Overleaves, and what they may mean. [MEntity] First, we wish to point out that a "year" does not actually have Overleaves. What we describe is the momentum of collective choices as they seem to be generating effects within a certain range of time. [MEntity] When that range of time is meaningful, such as the beginning and ending of a year, it is much easier to quantify that collective energy into a force that can be described in Overleaves. [MEntity] These Overleaves can be given on terms that are regional, planetary, relevant to Soul Age groups, etc. [MEntity] The set of Overleaves requested of us by Troy are planetary in calculation, with most of the emphasis on how this is relevant to Older Souls, our Students, and any scenarios that may have an effect upon them. [MEntity] As we have already described in some detail how we calculate a year's Overleaves, what that means, and how they are emphasized in a year, we know that Troy will include a link to those previous discussions. [See bottom of transcript for a quote on "What is an Energy Report and Overleaves for a Year."] Today we will focus more on the details. [MEntity] In 2011, we saw the momentum of consciousness from 2010 shaping that next year into what could be described as a Moving Centered Priest year. 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST CENTER: MOVING GOAL: FLOW MODE: CAUTION ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom [MEntity] In general, Moving-centered years are not as comfortable to most of our students than, say, an Intellectual year may be. [MEntity] Moving-centered years tend to be unstable, fluctuate greatly, bring about agitation, disruptions, and movement in ways that are exhausting to the Older Soul. [MEntity] A Moving-Centered year might be best understood as a moving train that is being pushed by some, pulled by some, and ridden by most. [MEntity] The Older Souls can tend to be those who desperately wanted to just find a seat, but instead have to stand and hold onto the bars and straps as everything moves. [MEntity] So a Moving-Centered year does not necessarily mean that a lot has to have happened to or from you, personally, but your energy will still have been used for maintaining your position of stability, even if you "stood still" the entire time. [MEntity] Most Moving-centered years get launched into the mass consciousness by some sort of literal manifestation in the masses, and 2011 was no exception with its flooding and mudslides in Brazil, and a 9.1 magnitude Earthquake and tsunami of East Japan. [MEntity] The Role and Centering of a year always tends to "set the mood" for the entire year as a context for the collective approaches to any participation in the world. [MEntity] The Priest energy, then, was launched by a great out-pouring of compassion and visionary approaches to relief for those impacted by these disasters. [MEntity] This is not to say that these disasters were "created" by collective consciousness, but it is fair to say that geological and atmospheric events are tied quite closely to the dominant Sentience of any given planet. [MEntity] Different types of natural disasters tend to be tied to different Centering and combinations of Overleaves, both in how these are collective on global scales, and in regional scales. [MEntity] As are weather patterns. [MEntity] As this was a Moving-Centered Priest year, the criticisms of the United States' President, a Priest, was greatly about his not DOING enough, while actually having done quite a great deal, and emphasizing the Moving Center through active murders of dictators who had been in positions of power for many years. [MEntity] Beyond the United States, a movement known as "Arab Spring" came into force in the world as part of the visionary movement of 2011. [MEntity] Starting in the United States, but extending around the world, a movement known as "Occupy" also took hold as a part of this collective Moving Centered, Priest force. [MEntity] The independence of South Sudan was another part of this force. [MEntity] Moving Centered years can also come with extremes in terms of climate and Earth, and as Moving Centered years have been drawing closer and closer together, sometimes the recovery is difficult before another extreme comes along, such as the droughts of Somalia and the flooding of Thailand over 2011. [MEntity] Keep in mind that each "season" brings with it an emphasis of the actual Overleaves of the year, with January through March emphasizing the Goal; April through June emphasizing the Mode; July through September emphasizing the Attitude; and the Chief Features of the year being emphasized October through December. [MEntity] All Overleaves are in effect all year, but tend toward emphasis in those seasons. [MEntity] As each season moves into emphasis of an Overleaf, it is built upon the previous season's exploration of emphasis. [MEntity] For instance, the Earthquake of March was part of the emphasis on the Goal of Flow, which is an exploration of how to move with forces that are beyond your control. [MEntity] A great deal of eruptions and agitations in terms of politics and war found its emphasis launched in April through June, highlighted by the death of Osama bin Laden, as Caution was emphasized. [MEntity] Caution is the exploration of reaching the Goal, and Relating, by refining one's thoughts. In this case, a major shift in thinking occurred for many, in terms of how to turn the tides, figuratively speaking. [MEntity] As all Overleaves come with a partner on its Axis, there will be those moments of Power, as displayed by the distracting wedding of Prince William. [MEntity] We describe this as "distracting," as it was mostly of interest to those who did not wish to align with the uglier explorations of Caution being played out in such chaos, but preferred to turn to those exemplifying a more magical representation of authority. [MEntity] The Pragmatist energy of the year showed up primarily in science, as major breakthroughs in Organ Transplant, the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program, the discovery of liquid on Mars, and the launch of a solar-powered craft came between July and September, with September launching the neutral, pragmatic, and surprisingly efficient Occupy movement. [MEntity] Impatience and Martyrdom culminated in many different ways, but was exemplified by the United States' declaration of the end of the war in Iraq, which was predicated more upon the fear of running out of time, and creating more victims, than from anything else. [MEntity] This would be an example of the positive poles of those Chief Features, though, and may have shown up as a much more destructive force if these has been in the negative poles. [MEntity] These were some major events that we see in terms of what Troy has offered up to us, and in terms of what we have seen as exemplifying our system of describing the year in Overleaves, but we know there are many scenarios that could be explored. [MEntity] For now, we will open the queue to questions regarding 2011, and what we have shared, before moving on to discussion about 2012: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN [Question] Running out of time? In what way? [MEntity] Yes, BW. In terms of "running out of time," this seems to have been reflective of the masses wishing for such an unnecessary war to end, as well as the fulfillment of promises that had been made. The ending of this war was along the lines of ripping off a bandage that would hurt even more if torn off slowly from the skin. [Question] You mentioned that the US was running out of time in regards to Iraq. In what way, and how would the negative poles have manifested? [MEntity] It is an official declaration that is valid, but mostly in words at this point, premature in terms of accommodating the sense of running out of time, while still remaining with a great deal of recovery to endure. [MEntity] The Positive Poles are Audacity and Selflessness, of Impatience and Martyrdom, respectively, and this was catered to by the declaration. [MEntity] Impatience is the fear of missing out, or running out of time, or being controlled by Time, so Audacity in this context, however courageous and strong it may seem, is generated from a need to DO something before it is too late. [MEntity] Martyrdom is the fear of being controlled by space, or by others, or losing control in any way, so one of the more "positive" ways to assert control is to suddenly be the selfless one, the one doing what others would not do, and taking on the responsibilities of that, both the good and the bad. This may seem noble, but it is motivated by a need to protect oneself from the fear of losing control. [MEntity] This declaration of the end of this war exemplified how a "positive" effect is at work, even as generated by defense. [MEntity] We say "positive" in quotes, as the results are often convoluted and confusing when anything "positive" comes from the motivation of a Chief Negative Feature. [Question] Caution being played out in such chaos, but preferred to turn to those exemplifying a more magical representation of authority. What did you mean by magical representations? [MEntity] Caution is restrictive and refining, and in terms of a Moving-Centered Year with a visionary Essence of Priest, Caution was playing out in "ugly" ways that required that focused, refined thought for overhauling those who were obstructing the "flow" of the year. [MEntity] Most of the emphasis, then, has been on how those in power are doing that obstruction, so it was a nice dovetailing of energies when a powerful elite were in a position to provide a different story, a distraction. [Question] Ah power Controlling through "softer" means....sleight of handing? [MEntity] Power is the Mode that explores the freeing of thoughts as a means to achieve the Goal, and to Relate, therefore those who were drawn in the direction of the Royal Wedding simply found the distraction of thought to be freeing. [MEntity] No, there was no "sleight of hand," but more that the event allowed for the emphasis to remain on the same Axis as Caution by focusing on Power, not only exemplified by the Royal Family, but exemplified in a context that was more beautiful and appealing than the Caution that was being played out in uglier ways with dictators. [MEntity] We will continue on, then, to discussion of 2012 and its Overleaves, along with an Energy Report for January and February. 2012 OVERLEAVES ROLE: KING (emphasized all year) CENTER: EMOTIONAL (with INSTINCTIVE) (emphasized all year) GOAL: GROWTH (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: PASSION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: SPIRITUALIST (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: STUBBORNNESS ] Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) [MEntity] In an Emotionally-centered year, the tendency is toward a launch that is more unpredictable than usual, which often translates to the individual as a sense of not having words to describe one's feelings about tomorrow, and what it will bring; like a kind of careful floundering in the dark in a way that emphasizes an unknowing. [MEntity] The shift from the Moving-centered year into the Emotional year may come with some disorientation, as so much "energy" had been used to simply "hold on" through 2011, and it may take some time get your intuitive legs back, if you will. [MEntity] As the year is Emotionally-Centered, and launched from Growth, there is a great deal of emphasis on the Inspirational Energies as setting the stage for the year. [MEntity] This is further extended by Passion and Spiritualist later in the year. [MEntity] As Growth is the Goal that seeks to explore, find, and create Meaningful Experiences, we think that many will begin the year with an emphasis on returning to a sense of importance, meaning, and purpose in the life, instead of simply "getting by," or, as in keeping with last year, simply "hold on." [MEntity] This importance, meaning, and purpose may not be able to take shape very easily, or be expressed very clearly, as the year is so Inspirationally-based, and the Emotional Center is voiceless and expressionless. [MEntity] Instead, the Emotions bypass logic, reason, and explanations. It is a function that is fueled by one's capacity for "knowing," trusting, and more technically, Perceiving. [MEntity] Perception is the capacity to know without needing to understand how you know. [MEntity] And so it is that each of you may begin this year with a bit of stumbling around in the dark, but "knowing" you feel a necessity to return to that internal trust in your navigation again, even as you are not particularly certain about the direction, shape, or meaning it is to take. [MEntity] With the King being emphasized, all of this may take on a greater importance than usual, in that this is not just a personal matter, but one that you may find is important in terms of how you show up in the world to others. [MEntity] How you lead your life. What you want to make of it. What you want to show for it, or leave behind. [MEntity] The King year can tend to bring to light that core of any individual who wants to take back his or her life in a way that is on his or her own terms, and in this Emotional year with Growth, this would tend toward being in terms of what is most meaningful for you that can be used by others to help them lead their lives. [MEntity] This is not going to show as so grand for some, but on smaller scales, and tighter circles of intimacy, but for many, this is a rather pivotal year in this context. [MEntity] We see that most of our students, even as they are stumbling about, so to speak, are working hard to reassert themselves into some kind of position of self-leadership, meaning, and direction, through a return of trust internally. [MEntity] January, then, could be said to have had a theme described by the phrase: OK, WHERE WAS I? [MEntity] Most of our students seem to have taken a step away from the internal nurturing that is required for your sense of participation, joy, trust, intuition, and mastery of your life as you have tended to many external demands. [MEntity] The King energy of this year is generated from a collective sense of the "OK, WHERE WAS I?" in terms of how one feels he or she may have lost track of the self over the past couple of years. [MEntity] It is not that these past few years have been wasted by any means, but that they have been focused in more external directions that may have ranged from feeling like a necessary detour by some, exhausting for others, and/or even resented by others. [MEntity] It is not that these past few years have been wasted by any means, but that they have been focused in more external directions that may have ranged from feeling like a necessary detour by some, exhausting for others, and/or even resented by others. [MEntity] January, then, may have been the first month in a while that brought with it the slowing of time and energy to a point that can now see possibility for that return of nurturing to the self again. [MEntity] However, because of the momentum from 2011, it may not have come easily, if at all, yet. [MEntity] We think that most of our students would not feel the full settling of the shift into the Emotional year until next month, near the end of February. [MEntity] Once there is a bit more clarity as to what is most meaningful to each of you, then would come the return of the sense of intuition, trust, and sight in the dark, if you will. [MEntity] February moves more fully into Growth, and this may start to be more obvious as more exciting plans, personal experiences, and a sense of evolving comes back for many of you. [MEntity] February may be described the phrase, "OH, THERE, I AM!" [MEntity] We think that February 7th might be the shift for most as the Nexus is a Converging Nexus that brings a merging of parallels that originally branched out from 2005. [MEntity] That Divergence in 2005 appears to have been related to a "what if" kind of shift that explored the ideas of a range of "the worst" to "the best" scenarios relative to, and extending from, important events of that year. [MEntity] Many of those "versions" of the self, then, may be merging back as each have "returned" from those paths of exploration over time, and have moved the life into nearly the same state as what "you" perceive yours to be "now." [MEntity] For many of you this might bring a wave of Sentimentality with it, as the Emotional Center takes full effect, and your past is grieved, or reminisced about, or embraced in a new way. [MEntity] On the other side of this, the experience may be, as we said, one that could be described as "Oh, There I Am (again)." [MEntity] This may not be obvious, at first, but in the few weeks after, and into March, this may become more obvious as a kind of confidence, stride, and trust comes up from the self and into the life. [MEntity] Overall, the year ahead appears to be rooted in themes that are all about individuals or groups returning a sense of mastery back to their participation in life, fueled by what inspires them. For some, this will play out as mastery and perceptive evolution, but for others, this may show up as tyrannical, sentimental confusion. [MEntity] This is most likely going to be played out quite distinctly in United States' Politics. [MEntity] We have much more to say about the Overleaves for the year, but this is a start. We will now take questions regarding 2012, its Overleaves, what we shared, and any other relevant questions. [Question] Is the attempt at internet censorship by the music and movie industries and certain U.S. politicians through SOPA and PIPA due in part to the King energy in place this year? They certainly seem to be attempting to impose their will on others in a tyrannical manner. [MEntity] Oh yes, DB; it is an example of the Tyrannical, Sentimental, and Confused. This appears to have been an example of imposing meaning that is from "the good old days" while not understanding anything about the current state of days. [MEntity] The intentions were not sinister, as much as they were simply motivated by a disconnect from the present state of technology, people, and the nature of the Mature Soul paradigm, which will continue to increase in its sharing of "intellectual properties" and ideas that can never truly be "owned." [Question] With the rhetoric of various nations regarding the politics of the Middle East and the nature of the US to economical need to be at a constant state of war, what is the outlook for war in the middle east to break out into a full-scale global war? [MEntity] The potential for a global scale of war is still rather low, though existent, at what might be described as being a 25% probability. [MEntity] Not very many fragments are interested in a global war, and for that to be accommodated on any meaningful scale would require a great many of the Mature Souls to exit so that Younger souls could implement it. [MEntity] As long as there is a means for launching a global war, then there will always be probabilities for it, but, for the moment, they are low probabilities. [Question] So then the rhetoric is just that then? [MEntity] Yes, for the most part, there are many "puffed up" scenarios generated from the various fears, but as with any fearful state or projection, it is often generated from thinking that one is doing the best thing for protection from that which is feared. [Question] Does Michael believe that conscious astral projection training is beneficial for the essence? If so, is it true that arround the time of December the 21st there will be a "massive spiritual awakening"? [MEntity] Consciousness brought to any endeavor can be described as "beneficial for Essence," but Astral Projection is mostly for the entertainment and exploration of the Personality, as Essence is already "projected," if you wll, and has direct access to the Astral. [MEntity] Astral Projection is a matter of sustaining a cohesion of consciousness beyond the confines of the body, and when that is practiced (consciously, or unintentionally through dreams), it is profoundly liberating to the Personality, as it is a kind of experiential proof of its existence beyond those confines. [MEntity] As for a "massive spiritual awakening," we would say that this could be said to be true, if that "awakening" is understood as a shift of a dominant paradigm from Young to Mature, and having started long before December 21st, and continuing long after for approximately 50 to 100 years. [MEntity] There has never been, and probably never will be, anything that could be described as a "massive awakening," or a specific date to mark a shift in collective growth, except insofar as one might describe it in retrospect, and in terms of a great scale of time. [MEntity] For instance, it could be said that a "massive awakening" last ocurred over the Harmonic Convergence of 1988 when the official number of Mature Souls within the sentient population actually shifted to be the most dominant Soul Age, but as one can see, the implementation of that shift is still in the works. [MEntity] With each "important date" that has come since then, there are minor shifts that are valid in ways that are not massive or obvious, but are valid, nonetheless. [MEntity] December 21st, 2012 has moved to become a kind of anchoring effect of the Mature Soul consciousness and paradigm shift. [MEntity] Since 1988, the population that has been incarnated has fluctuated over and over between having more Mature and more Young, almost on a yearly basis, but this current year may bring that to a conclusion, with a momentum in place that keeps the population sustained as having mostly Mature Souls at any given time. [MEntity] In that regard, some may consider this a "massive awakening," or an important shift, but we simply see it as part of the process of evolution that is quite slow, relatively speaking. [Question] Relatedly, since 2012 has been so hyped up by so many for a while, and from various angles from doomsday to miraculous ascensions, how might the expectations and hype influence the events, or probability of events, for the year (if at all)? [MEntity] On Personal and Community Levels, the interpretation of events will cater to many of these various angles on the year. The events of a year can mean anything to the individual or group, depending upon their preferred or defaulted processes of growth. [MEntity] It is not so much that these beliefs and "hype" will generate events as much as the events, which could have happened in any year, may feed into the beliefs and hype. That being said, we do not think 2012 can be moved through without at least one individual or group actively doing their best to impose their idea of what "2012" should bring. [Question] On a more 'personal level' for some of us - how are a year's overleaves experienced by those who have those particular overleaves themselves, such as a King role in a King year, or an Emotionally centered fragment in an emotionally centered year? [MEntity] This would depend upon Soul Age. The younger Kings will "eat this up" and excel into positions they have longed for over a great length of time, such as the Young Mitt Romney. [MEntity] For the older Kings, it can bring about a shift in positions more quietly, but still with the emphasis of a return to their potential for Mastery. [MEntity] Whatever Role is emphasized in a year, the fragments who are that Role tend to escalate their own participation in the world in some way that emphasizes their positive and/or negative poles as Essence. [MEntity] For our older students who are Kings, we think this would be a year when confidence is supported for return in them, particularly in terms of how inspired they feel toward their own efforts. Kings have had a very difficult time sustaining a sense of inspiration over the years since 2005. [MEntity] For those who are Emotionally-Centered in an Emotionally-Centered year, this can range between being hypersensitive and more sentimental than usual, to being highly inspired and perceptive, often fueled by nostalgia. [MEntity] Nostalgia is the capacity for extracting the most meaningful, important, and beneficial of events from the past as a means to build upon them, whereas Sentimentality is a wish to return to the past, or a state of grieving for the past, and an attachment of meaning to symbolic representations of the past. [MEntity] That polarity may be heightened for those who are Emotionally-Centered in an Emotionally-centered year. [MEntity] Of course, these are simplistic examples, but they are fair in their description of possibilities for the Role and Centering in question. [Question] For a slightly different take on Brian's question, will we possibly be looking at a "Persian Spring" this year? [MEntity] Yes. [MEntity] The probability for a "Persian Spring" is rather high, but keep in mind that even the "Arab Spring" is a misnomer to describe a great process that has taken a great amount of time, and if there is to be a "Persian Spring," many more effects from the "Arab Spring" must continue. [MEntity] But the momentum is in place to help bring about this so-called "Persian Spring," and that may come this year, though we can only speak to the fact that it MAY come this year. We cannot predict it beyond stating that the probability is rather high at 44%. [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. Good evening to each of you. [MEntity] Goodbye. WHAT IS AN ENERGY REPORT and “OVERLEAVES FOR THE YEAR?” Though energies shift, change, and adapt all year, there is a general energy that can be said to affect the calendar year, at least in terms of your shared reality. Our Overleaves system can be used to describe any collection of energies, ranging from the dynamics of the actual Personality to the general “mood” of a room, society, fictional character, theme of groups, or a planet’s general atmosphere of consciousness. In addition to this, when a block of time is selected, that time frame can be translated into a description of energies based on what we perceive as the momentum of events, consciousness, and choices that will POTENTIALLY contribute to that period of time. The Overleaves for a year, then, are our interpretation of those events, consciousness, and choices as we see that they are most likely to be brought to bear in your world. The more participating one is in “the world,” the more likely these energies will be of concern, though one’s inactivity does not exempt one from world or local energies, anymore than staying inside can take away the fact of a rainstorm. The rainstorm outside can have as much an effect on one inside as on one who is outside, depending on personal interpretations and experiences of that rainstorm. The very basic energy, or basic context, of a year can be described in two Overleaves: the Role and the Center. These two basic energies are those that can contribute to your year feeling “comfortable” or “challenged” during the year unfolding, depending on your own Overleaves and your method of participation in “the world.” These two energies are most obvious in the first three months of a year, but their effects will remain steady throughout the year. It can be said that ALL of the Overleaves we use to describe the year are in effect ALL year, but the particular frames of time described below are the “seasonal” emphasis of those particular Overleaf qualities.
