  1. 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.
  2. Michael Speaks Live January 26, 2014 Elaboration of Overleaves for 2014 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. [MEntity] We understand the subject to be that of an elaboration on the Overleaves that we described as representing 2014. February 2014 Energy Report [MEntity] What we will do is begin with the "Energy Report" for February before elaborating further. [MEntity] As January comes to a close, there appears to be a new burst of energy available for most of our students. This is a burst of enthusiasm, creativity, optimism, literal energy, and motivation. [MEntity] This is because the Goal has now come to focus as an emphasis, and the weight of the Chief Features of the previous year have lifted for most. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is the Goal for this year, and this would bring with it an emphasis on challenging yourselves, and moving you in directions away from any stagnation that may have been in place in some way in the life. [MEntity] The Goal of Growth is all about the process of bringing/creating/generating MEANING from your experiences. This is why it can seem so challenging and stretches the individuals who have this as a Goal in the Personality. It impels one to look beyond the superficial nature of an experience, relationship, event, and the self and into the greater value and point of those things. [MEntity] We know that many associated Growth with physical activity and challenges, but that is only one form of Growth. Growth is NOT an Action Goal. It is an Inspiration Goal. It has never been about Action, but because experience is most often cultivated by participation in the world and with people, it tends to lean toward experiences that involve Action. However, it is about the value and meaning that one extracts from that. In a year when Growth is in place, our students will tend to feel as if these are years when there are leaps in evolution, the Positive Pole, if the work of extracting Meaning is nurtured, but it can also be a year when there is a great deal of Confusion, an overwhelming state of non-direction and non-meaning because there is too much being processed. [MEntity] So February would appear to be that tipping point, if you will, toward this dance between Evolution and Confusion, depending upon how much one has taken on for processing. [MEntity] The amount one has taken on for processing at the beginning of this year appears to be dependent upon on how much was resisted in the past 2 or 3 years. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 or 3 years at a pace that is avoiding or evading a sense of evolution and progress, dismissing the need for processing experiences, then 2014 might start off with a sense of overwhelm and Confusion, a "tsunami" of backlogged processing to be addressed. [MEntity] If one has been moving along for the past 2 to 3 years at a pace that has allowed for value and meaning to be extracted from various experiences, relationships, etc. and has not avoided the processes necessary for the sense of evolving, then 2014 will probably launch into a strange and beautiful wave of highly-active Astral explorations and "jam-packed" dreaming. [MEntity] Even if those dreams are not remembered, there would tend to be a sense that the dream state was highly active. [MEntity] This emphasis in the Astral and dreaming is directly linked to the fact that because one has dealt fairly well with the Physical Plane and its processes, then the work of Growth is happening in the Emotional/Inspirational body. This is why many of you may then be feeling this lift, this relief, and revitalized sense of enthusiasm and playfulness as February comes. [MEntity] In addition to this, because the year is Centered in the Intellect, most will feel a comfort and enthusiasm for sharing what is happening in the Emotional body, in dreams, in the Astral, in their Evolution, and even in their experiences of Confusion. [MEntity] So as February unfolds, we suggest to our students to "hold on to your hat," and "enjoy the ride," as the month will likely feel as if it speeds up and has high potential for great laughs, exchanges of inspiration, sharing of experiences, and authentic joy, even for those in Confusion. [MEntity] Helpful Thoughts over February might be: [MEntity] YES. THIS IS MY LIFE. [MEntity] The emphasis in that phrasing can be moved around to bring about different effects. YES! This is my life. or Yes. THIS is my life. or Yes. This IS my life. or Yes. This is MY life. or Yes. This is my LIFE! [MEntity] The phrasing with the emphasis that is most inspiring and acting as a reminder that you are the one who owns this life, and that you are the one who manages it, and that you are the one who has the power of choice in it, and that you are the one with the capacity for problem solving, creativity, and for extracting joy, playfulness, and MEANING from it. ...is the phrasing that you can use to remind you that you are the creator and navigator of this life. [MEntity] We caution against using any phrasing with emphasis that feels as if it is mocking and evasive of your responsibilities for choice and processes. DATES OF INTEREST: [MEntity] February 12 - 15: NEXUS (convergence) - this appears to be a parallel shift that is an emphasis on growing closer to those with whom one has been tentative, or has fallen into tentativeness. [MEntity] Barriers and inhibitions would likely drop to help bring fragments closer, as they are in other parallels. [MEntity] February 25: Energy Shift - we think there may be something brought to public awareness regarding discovery or speculative discovery regarding off-planet material on or around this date. It is another contributing factor to the wave of enthusiasm and inspiration wave. Overview of 2014 [MEntity] Now, in terms of an overview of the year ahead: [MEntity] We think most will remember 2014 as a "Good Year," as there is such a wave of Inspiration unfolding from several directions and among even the Young and Mature in Soul Age. [MEntity] Cooperation and breakthroughs regarding misunderstandings in politics and religion may even be prominently surprising. This is not to say that there will not be challenges, but that there would tend to be some breakthroughs that begin a trend of uniting factions as opposed to the path that has been so divisive. [MEntity] The factions that insist on remaining more insular and isolated would likely find themselves falling to states of implosion by the end of the year, or have lashed out in such a way that it actually secures a greater determination for others to unite. [MEntity] With Priest, Growth, and Passion manifesting within the year in ways that appear, so far, to be leaning toward the Positive Poles, a sense that this is a pivotal year toward "something better" might begin to cautiously be embraced. [MEntity] The Realism of the year would tend to help curb the more delusional or distracting elements that might otherwise eclipse the sense of Inspiration, Compassion, Evolution, and Self-Actualization. That Realism would allow for one to step back enough to know that delusional distractions are not the equivalent of an obligation for addressing. One can allow room for those with delusional distractions, and still stand in compassion. [MEntity] Because so much would likely be felt as having been experienced, processed, and integrated over 2014, it is likely that the Impatience of the end of the year would be either lifted entirely, or replaced. [MEntity] The most significant events of 2014 would likely be in terms of those factions that refuse to move forward with progress and process of the planet lashing out and displaying what we see as the middle stages of their "dying gasps." [MEntity] Two significant weather-related events, primarily involving surprisingly destructive and sustained winds, would appear to be a focus for a large portion of the population. [MEntity] A "celebrity" murder looks to be coming around as a focal point, as well. [MEntity] Surprising transformations in immigration laws and in legalization of marijuana appear to make great strides in the year ahead, as well. [MEntity] For the United States. [MEntity] We can share these highlights with you because they appear to be linked to Nexus throughout the year ahead, and while these still have a great likelihood of changing, these are fairly secure enough in their link to the current momentum that we can, at least, mention them. [MEntity] We will open the floor now for questions regarding the topic: ****** QUEUE IS NOW OPEN ****** [ViP] I have the same Role, Goal, and Mode as the respective collective energies for this year. How would this affect (if at all) how I experience the year and those parts of it with Goal and Mode in focus? [MEntity] When a year is aligned with one's Overleaves to a great degree, or to one's Role, the year tends to go in one of two distinct directions: [MEntity] extreme challenge, or extreme progression. [MEntity] These are probably fair to say are the same things in the end, but the more challenging side would tend to come for those who have work to do regarding embracing more of their own power, choices, actions, etc. It is difficult to hide from who and how one is in a year that is emphasizing one's very nature overall. [MEntity] If those challenges are seen as beneficial, then there is the progression. [MEntity] Progression is a sense of relief and movement forward in the life in a way that seems almost pre-planned and guided from levels of the self that are not as tangible as your every day self. [MEntity] A progressive year is a matter of listening to oneself, to following impulses and pleasures and being honest. [MEntity] The sense of struggle, in terms of "challenge" is only felt if the focus from the self is on continuing to hide from who and how one is. [MEntity] The sense of progress, then, in terms of "progression," is felt when one builds on who and how one is. [brian] You mentioned that 2014 might start off like a tsunami. Will there be any more waves of destruction, or how might you recommend getting back on the board and surfing the next one? [MEntity] First, we would suggest for those who have experienced this break of resistance against avoidance and evasion to be one of CONSTRUCTION, not DESTRUCTION. It is a clearing away of debris that may be the equivalent of hoarding, or at least the debris as a by-product of hiding. [MEntity] Looking at the chaos of the breakthrough as constructive would help one to tap into the inspiration and creative problem solving that is necessary for infusing the experience with meaning that is useful and helpful, rather than as degrading and undermining. [MEntity] THAT is your "surfboard," then: the optimism of possibility even from among the debris, and even in the midst of cleaning up that debris. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] Chaos is merely the breakdown of the capacity to see patterns, and as one begins to create or identify patterns again, even if one starts with only a few building blocks, begins the process of seeing Beauty again. [MEntity] It is quite difficult to build from within Chaos, and to build patterns, if one resigns from the responsibility of Growth, or put another way, resigns from the responsibility of creating and bringing value and meaning to an experience. [MEntity] We cannot say if there will be other breakthroughs for those who are starting the year with them. We doubt there will be. We think most prefer to work with the one that is enough. [Oscar] hey Michael =) Could you share any possible 2014 highlights for the Netherlands? [MEntity] The Netherlands is often quite stable in its participation in the world, in terms of how collective energy manifests. That population is slow to bring great changes or challenges, with most of that being done "privately" and from within smaller groupings. We think most of the 2014 would appear to be fairly uneventful in terms of challenges, but we think there are several high-profile celebrations in store. [MEntity] There are a couple of Dutch Directors whose names may gain some more international attention in 2014, and a controversial artist who looks to bring up some debate within the local population. There appears to be a development project that is also under scrutiny and would lean toward either being dismantled or being altered to appease the public. [MEntity] We also see a breakthrough in scientific experimentation that comes from that area, and would fall into the category of "exciting." We cannot tell what it is, but it is of international consideration. [MEntity] The infrastructure regarding flooding is at a breaking point as 2014 passes, and this may come to be more relevant to the population as 2015 nears. [MEntity] We think these are bordering on predictions, so we will leave you with these higher probable events to note, though even those are not immune to alterations. 2 [GeraldineB] Even though I think this was answered, I'd like to specifically ask: "What are the probabilities of having the Sochi Olympics either disrupted or halted due to violence? [MEntity] We think the likelihood of disruption is high, at around 78% probability, with the likelihood of a halt being fairly low at 14%. [MEntity] There are, clearly, fragments who we can see are eager for this platform of expression for zealousness and confusion. [MEntity] They appear to be quite intent. [MEntity] If there is not the disruption due to violence, we would think there would be the disruption due to the intervention. [MEntity] We will conclude here for today. [MEntity] Good evening to all of you.
  3. 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
  4. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are now here. We will begin discussion and review of a topic that has been requested: Body types. We think that most of our students are familiar with the term, but it could be one of the least-understood terms in our system, and possibly the least-used in any practical way. We understand that for some of you this may come as review, but your questions may help to delve into directions you feel are of interest. First, we will share the structure of the Body Type system: For simplicity and consistency, we concentrate on the 7 Main Body Types that are also familiar to you in your Solar System: Lunar (moon), Venusian, Mercurial, Saturnine, Martial, Jovial (Jupiter), Solar. Those Body Types are relative to the axes within our Overleaves System and sit on those Axes in this way: Lunar (ordinal)/Saturnine (cardinal) = Inspiration; Martial (ordinal)/Venusian (cardinal) = Action; Mercurial (ordinal)/Jovial (cardinal) = Expression; Solar = Assimilation (Troy received a full-body massage today that has altered his chemistry to a degree that has not settled energetically, completely, so we are working through this as best we can.) The irony is not lost on us that this was done on a day when we are to discuss this topic. [Martha] a massage has that big an effect? [Bobby] are we not sure that for the Action axis, Venusian is ordinal and Martial is cardinal? [NicSweeney] just from the astro stand-point-mars energy is much more focused and concrete than venusian... [Maureen] Venus and Mars are the Action Axis MEntity: A massage has that "big of an effect" on one who never receives one, yes. And we are certain that Venus is Cardinal and Martial is Ordinal in this system. However, there are debates among the channels as to whether Venus is attributed to Sages, or to Kings, and whether Jovial is attributed to Sages or Kings. We will not look to resolve that in this session, but it is worth noting and exploring if you choose to do so. We will continue now. Body Types are a crucial part of the process of learning how to create a lifetime and Personality, and the Body Type is the foundation for every Personality. Choosing/Creating the Body Type lays the foundation for how the other Overleaves may or may not work in cohesion with the physical existence of that life. Your Body Type helps determine how energy is experienced and processed within the lifetime on a very basic level; so basic that is it is as taken for granted as the bottom of your feet, for instance. Each Body Type is electrically-charged, if you will, and that electrical charge is similar to how various countries have their own version of power supplies through wall sockets. This is a crude analogy, but helpful. Understanding one's Primary electrical charge can help one to care for the very basics of the life in a way that keeps that source of energy healthy and flowing with as little static, short-circuiting, and shock as possible. The more complementary the Overleaves built upon the Body Type's energy, the more likely one would would be without physical challenges, whereas one who has Overleaves that are electrically-polarized to the Body Type can sometimes have physical challenges as a part of the life. ALL of the Overleaves are "electrically-charged," so to speak, but it is the Body Type that manages all of the energy that is the Overleaves. These "electrical charges" are described by us in terms of POSITIVE/NEGATIVE, and ACTIVE/PASSIVE. A Body Type or Overleaf would be one of each: either Positive or Negative AND either Active or Passive. These terms are fairly literal in terms of how they manifest: Positive Body Types tend toward optimism, higher perspectives, expansion, growth, accepting, what works, strengths, etc. Negative Body Types tend toward scrutiny, detailed perspectives, contraction, halting, discriminating, what does not work, flaws, etc. Active Body Types emphasize DOING and interaction with the world, while Passive Body Types emphasize BEING and introspection. The Body Types are organized in a spectrum from the most Passive/Negative (Lunar) to the most Active/Positive (Saturnine). Outside of that spectrum is the Assimilative Solar, which acts as Active/Positive, as well, but not as extreme as the Saturnine. The Body Types relative to their Axes are paired as follows: LUNAR = Passive/Negative with SATURNINE = Active/Positive; MERCURIAL = Active/Negative with JOVIAL = Passive/Positive; MARTIAL = Active/Negative with VENUSIAN = Passive/Positive If one is familiar with the structure of our Overleaves System, then those same electrical charges can be extrapolated to the Overleaves on that Axis. For instance, the most Active/Positive GOAL is Growth. The most Passive/Negative GOAL would be Re-evaluation. The way these charges work with or challenge each other is through the observation of the Positive/Negative Charges. Two Positives or two Negatives will have more challenges than a combination of Positive and Negative. For instance, Lunar and Mercury inherently experience challenges. Or Venusian and Saturnine, both Positive, would inherently experience challenges. In terms of Overleaves, this would be the case for Overleaves NOT on the same Axis. For instance, if one were to have all Cardinal Inspirational Overleaves and a Cardinal Inspirational Body Type, this would make all of those charges Active/Positive, but they are on the same Axis and would not challenge each other. However, throw in Cardinal/Action Axis Overleaf of Passive/Positive and there would be challenge. When we say "challenge," we do not mean to say that it would be difficult. It may be more accurate to say that "friction" would be the result, which can often be difficult, but also quite pleasurable. Every fragment has a combination of Body Types. Most have a combination of 3 Body Types. But many have 2, with one playing a dual role in the 3 Primary contexts of the body dynamics. These three contexts are APPEARANCE, NATURE, and HEALTH. The Body Type is then proportioned among those three Primary Contexts. So if one has 3 Body Types, it might be Venus/Mercury/Saturnine, there would be a percentage in each, such as 60% Venus, 25% Mercury, 15% Saturnine. The higher percentage usually indicates the APPEARANCE, the second highest indicates the NATURE, and the third indicating the HEALTH. Appearance would be defined as how you physically appear in physical form. Each Body Type has its own unique characteristics that form in the body when Physical. This particular Body Type Context is usually indicated in the Natal Chart for conception where the planet is closest to the mid-heaven. Of course, casting a natal chart for conception is not easy, but can be done. NATURE is defined by that Body Type that has influence over the general character and behavior of the body when used in space and time. It is a kind of psychological stance, as it is how the brain processes the energies and experiences of that come through the body. This particular Body Type Context is not always physically-obvious, but most obvious in the default behavior of the body. HEALTH is defined as literal, in that this is the Body Type Context that indicates what major Gland is emphasized for that lifetime, and that gland can either be a strength or a weakness, depending on several factors. If one has only 2 Body Types, then one of those "rules" two Contexts. So a Solar/Mercury Body Type might have Solar ruling both Appearance and Health, while Mercury rules the Nature. [Brian_W] Couldn't it also be having Solar ruling Appearance, and Mercury ruling Health and Nature? MEntity: Yes. We gave one example. Understanding one's Body Type and their Contexts can help one to see how the body works with the GOAL, the ATTITUDE, and MODE. The APPEARANCE Context resonates with the GOAL; the NATURE Context resonates with the ATTITUDE; and the HEALTH Context resonates with the MODE. Using the "Electrical Charges" for comparing the Overleaf with the Body Type can lend one insight into what personal challenges one might have with himself or herself. [Bobby] which planet craves chocolate? :-) MEntity: For instance, if one has a Primary Appearance ruled by Venus, and a Goal of Acceptance, then that might bring one into a long-term challenge of accepting the Body's appearance, in general. This would be because both Venus and Acceptance are "positive" charges. In fact, this is one of the more challenging of all combinations in terms of body image because both are also Passive. In response to Bobby: no particular planet craves anything in particular, though different Health Contexts and their ruling Planetary Body Type do have diets that are more beneficial to that body. [AnnH] What are the glands associated with the Health Body types? MEntity: We realize we are running late in time, and we have hours upon hours of data that we can share about this topic, but we will open the floor now for questions one may have about this subject, regarding what we have shared, or the subject, in general. [Maureen] What would be the influence or effect of having 2% Neptune? MEntity: In response to ANN: We find that Lunar is relevant to the Pancreas; Saturn is relevant to the Anterior Pituitary; Mercury is relevant to the Thyroid; Jupiter is relevant to the Posterior Pituitary; Mars is relevant to the Adrenals; Venus is relevant to the Parathyroid; and Solar to the Thymus. In response to MAUREEN: There are 5 additional planets that come into play when creating a body: Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, what some have come to call Sedna, and the elusive binary of your Sun that is mythically described as Nibiru. [Brian_W] how do Sedna and the thus far undiscovered Nibiru come into play? MEntity: When one has any of these in the body type, they are usually in a small percentage, and tend to either be a part of all of the Primary Contexts, or in a 4th Context of Transcendence. These influences are highly specialized and unique and rare, but not always in a way that one might consider appealing or "special." [Maureen] How does the 2% Neptune play out? MEntity: When one has any influence from Neptune, it would be an influence that might show up as one who has the capacity for heightened fantasy, dreaming, day-dreaming, magical thinking that actually manifests, and even clear intuition, telepathy, or other psychic capacities. [Maureen] Would Healing ability come into play as well? [Bobby] so Priesty energy in other words :-) [Martha] Can you elaborate on "friction"? For ex, I have Solar for Health with Passion mode, both active/Positive but not same axis, so there would be friction. Am I following this right? MEntity: That would depend on how that individual decided to funnel his or her particular energies in that lifetime. It does not inherently bring healing capabilities, but it does help bring one's mind into a place that would allow for it. We will respond to those who have raised their hands, first: NIC would be next. [NicSweeney] What would the effects of URANUS be? [NicSweeney] Michael has said that the outer planet influence can be related to more "extraordinary" lives. Extraordinary in what way? [NicSweeney] sorry about that-the 2nd question is more important to me... MEntity: Those with any effects from Uranus would usually have some form of physical anomaly, and when extreme can show up as deformations, dwarfism, and events that cause deformities/amputations. Beyond the physical, this influence might show up as having a kind of funhouse, circus-like, kaleidoscope-like perspective of life in a way that allows for multifaceted interpretations. Those with any Uranus influence might be drawn to hallucinogens, or even hallucinate naturally, or drawn to such things as "journeying" in Shamanism using herbal boosts. The life, in the end, would have seemed as if the experience was almost psychedelic. Some extreme examples of this might be Jim Morrison or Janis Joplin. In more appealing manifestations, it has shown up as generating breakthroughs that shift paradigms for either the individual, or the individual and his or her network, or even countries. Examples of this might be John Lennon or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh aka OSHO. In response to the latter question: It is true that these outer planets are chosen as influences in more "extraordinary" lifetimes, and this extraordinariness may be relative to only the fragment and its sequence of incarnations, or show up as extraordinary in larger contexts that are obvious to others. In response to MARTHA: You would be correct in that there would be friction in this combination, reminding you that "friction" may or may not be experienced as difficult or pleasant. What it would mean to us is that if your Passion is not fulfilled, then the Thymus may find that it is either compromised or overcompensates. [Martha] hmm, I have autoimmune issues, lol MEntity: In other words, in your case, your Immune System is directly proportional in strength/balance to how you tend to direct your Passion. Or taking this further, proportional to how you tend to bring Passion into your relationships. In response to BRIAN: Sedna tends to be reserved for those who choose to be Transcendental Souls, and Nibiru tends to be a part of the body type for those who host the Infinite Soul. We say "tends to be reserved" because there is no rule in place about this, but we have yet to see an individual fragment choose those influences without being Transcendental Souls, or hosting the Infinite Soul. We think we have responded to all of the questions posed, and will close this discussion for now with the comment that this is only a fraction of the information available for consideration on this subject. We are here for further discussion about this in another exchange when asked of us. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  5. [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 around 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 occurred 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. MORE ON "Energy Reports" 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.
  6. 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.

    Energy Report: MARCH 2014

    ENERGY REPORT March 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) MARCH begins the final month of emphasis on the Goal, Growth. Growth will remain a theme for the year, of course, but the emphasis will pass as of April when the emphasis will then shift toward the Mode of Passion. For many, the final month of emphasis on part of the Overleaves for the year can be the most intense, or unsettling, or distracting, particularly for those who have not embraced this general focus for the year. For many of our students, March appears to be in that precarious state between EVOLUTION and CONFUSION, the poles of the Goal of Growth. For some of you, the year seems to have locked on to a pattern, and there is a sense of moving forward, and there is something clear about this, even if there is no particular plan. It is simply a sense of inspiration and motivation, enthusiasm, a sense of evolving. But for most of our students, we are seeing a kind of floundering, a disorientation, a recoil, and even paralysis, a sense of confusion. If you are feeling the sense of momentum and evolution, then March will continue this for you so that there comes a fairly clear theme for you in the year ahead, and much of your experiences will be in some form of contribution to that theme. April would then tend to be an amplification and acceleration of those themes. If you are feeling the sense of recoil, halting, and confusion, then March will likely feel as if “you must pull yourself together - NOW.” March would likely come with a sense of waking up from a stupor that was generated from the processes you decided to take on that had been building up for the past 2 to 3 years. We mentioned in our previous reports that many of our students were taking on this year of Growth fairly seriously, in that anything that had been resisted or stored away for later processing would be allowed to surface and come to closure, or at least back into a momentum toward healing or closure. So if you are feeling this sense of recoil, halting, or confusion, it may very well be precisely because you chose to take on the work that was most beneficial to your year ahead, your health, and your life. In other words, it is not a “bad sign.” For those who have opened up to the backlog of experiences that were in need of processing, in need of being cleared and healed for the benefit of your Growth, you may now find March to be a sense of standing up, shaking off your stupor, and tentatively returning to an enthusiasm for your move forward. What we suggest for those in the latter position is to take March slowly, but take that stand. Get moving again. Reach out again. Note how you may have been obsessed, in a stupor, locked on to one insular circle of thinking, feeling, doing, and let that be okay, while also making the choices that expand upon your movement and sense of space. March will likely be a fairly sensual and physical month, with a sense of waking up for many. Some of this is a natural result of the shift in external seasons, but it would be amiss to dismiss these internal seasons that exist, as well. Regardless of hemisphere, and regardless of obvious shifts in season, this shifting at this time of year would be true in both internal and external ways. The only thing that is different is the theme and emphasis, responses and reactions to these shifts. Helpful thoughts over MARCH might be: WAKE UP, or TREAD, GENTLY “Waking up” in these more metaphysical or psychological terms is not much different from how one, literally, wakes up from a night of sleep. If you are a grouchy, slowly waking creature, then your process of awakening in larger terms will be similar. It will be important to consider this so you do not push yourself into further recoil, or “snooze.” Wake up, gently, at your pace. Sit with your metaphorical coffee or tea. Let the shower run longer than usual, etc. For some of you, the awakening process is like bread popping up from a toaster. Let that be your pace, as well. Do not impose this on others, of course, and for those of you who awaken more easily, there is often a responsibility of treading lightly around those still awakening. This is not a bad thing. It is simply part of the responsibility and position of awakening quickly. So, tread gently around your fellow loved ones who may still be groggy. That is, if you choose to honor those processes. In the end, the choice is yours, of course. DATES OF INTEREST March 13 - 15 -- ENERGY SHIFT - Waking Up - This weekend appears to be the pivotal few days where most of our students “catch up with themselves,” and begin to feel that they are waking up again, returning to a pattern of enthusiasm and movement. March 29 - 31 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - Cooperation and Community themes - this nexus appears to be a merging of parallels that bring fragments back into a focus on projects, plans, future anticipations, and coordination.
