  1. [Extracted from Michael Speaks: June 2005] [Annsge] I would like to know about the secondary chief feature. I’ve heard that it affects the mode and/or it affects relationships. Is there anything in particular that is helpful in working with the 2nd CF? How does it affect relationships–and/or does it affect relationships more than the Primary CF? MEntity: We have spoken of the Secondary Chief Feature as affecting the Attitude and the Mode, depending on the context of the questioning. When we spoke of the Attitude being affected, there was less understanding as to how the Mode worked. The Mode is not one of the more understood Overleaves. We would, then, say that there are three tiers to the effects of a Chief Feature, making a Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Chief Feature system. Primary Chief Feature affects the GOAL; the Secondary affects the MODE; the Tertiary affects the Attitude. It is NOT that there are three distinctly different Chief Features in your Overleaves, but that there are three AREAS in which a Chief Feature will be distinctly visible. Although these areas may very well have three distinctly different Chief Features, it is also quite common to have one Chief Feature rule all three areas. These areas, then, would be the areas of Self-Fulfillment, Relationship-Fulfillment, and Philosophical Fulfillment, or the Goal, Mode, and Attitude, respectively. The Chief Feature that affects the Mode is the Chief Feature that affects your experience of EXPRESSION. In addition, then, the Chief Feature that affects your GOAL affects your experience of ACTION, while the Chief Feature that affects your Attitude affects your experience of INSPIRATION. The Chief Feature that affects your Mode/Expression/Relationships is the Chief Feature that is used to protect you from INTIMACY. Your Mode describes not only how you express yourself internally and externally, but it also describes how you approach or repel Intimacy. When we speak of Intimacy, we are speaking of the spectrum of experience that could be described as SAFETY. In other words, the Chief Feature that is enlisted as your protector against Intimacy is doing so because you have learned that you are UNSAFE in your Expression and in your Relationships. We remind you that a “relationship” and “intimacy” is not exclusive to human interaction, but can include your sense of relationship to and intimacy within yourself, your aspirations, goals, etc. This subject can be explored much more deeply in a more appropriately provided format. We believe what we have shared is a good start. We, of course, have much to say on this subject. In terms of alleviating the effects of the Secondary Chief Feature, one would always find the quickest and “easiest” route to be through that of the Attitude. In ALL cases of Chief Features, the Attitude is the one overleaf that can dismantle them all. If one can find a conscious means to implement a behavior to bring the Attitude into the Positive Pole, one can dismantle the effects of the Chief Features in a powerful “domino or cascade effect.” Using the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude on the shared Axis, one can then move directly into the Positive Pole of the original Attitude. For example: If one is an Idealist, one can move from Naiveté (negative pole) to Coalescence (positive pole) by using INVESTIGATION, which is the Positive Pole of the Skeptic. To explain this more personally: The Idealist sees life in terms of how it SHOULD BE. This often leads to Naiveté because he tends to believe he can or should do far more than he is capable of doing. The Idealist then piles his life full of obligations and improvements to the point of disappointment and sometimes to the extent of harming himself or others. He has not accepted that to get from point A to point Z requires the steps in between. This is a form of Naiveté. This “negative” Attitude then cascades throughout the Overleaves, weighing them down into the Philosophy of CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT (or that everything should be “better”) without the means or method to do so. The Philosophy is not the problem; it is simply the lack of Coalescence that blocks this fragment. Coalescence could be defined as the culmination of several factors that can eventually manifest the Ideal. One can now see how INVESTIGATION might help an Idealist to dismantle his fears. If he would simply seek to understand (investigate) the steps required that would create his Ideal, he would not remain under the weight of Naiveté. Once he grasps and implements the process of realizing the Ideal, he is immediately back in Coalescence and free from Chief Feature. This same method can be applied to ANY Overleaf, but starting with the Attitude is the most empowering and immediately revitalizing because Attitudes are linked to the energy of Inspiration. Once the feed of Inspiration is returned to the Personality, most often “anything” can then be done.
  2. Session on 7/7/2016 MEntity: Hello to you, Diane. We are here, now. We can begin. DianeHB: Hello Michael DianeHB: Michael, in my last session you mentioned: "There are definitive dynamics in the work place that arise as positive and negative roles/positions. Understanding how to navigate these as they arise can be quite empowering." Can you elaborate what these positive and negative roles/positions are? MEntity: There are a number of ways to understand the dynamics of a work place. In workplaces with fewer than 12, the roles can be best understood by looking to Configurations to match the number of fragments involved. In workplaces where there are more than 12, the dynamic shifts back to a default of 7 that reflects the overleaf system. MEntity: For workplaces involving more than 12, the tendency is for the descriptions of the GOALS to come into play. These do not necessarily correspond to the individual's own Goal, but knowing the Goal of an individual can help. The reason the individual Goal is not always as insightful is because of the closed system of a workplace. MEntity: In a closed system such as that, the personal Goals would still be intact and motivating the individual on a personal level, but behaviors in the workplace may reflect more of the sub-personalities that must come forth in order to be in that closed system. MEntity: To help differentiate these workplace roles from the Goals, we will describe them in a different way and you can correlate these to the corresponding overleaves. MEntity: THE FRAGILE ONE - this is the individual who must keep things simple in order to function. Complications, distractions, challenges, etc. can be very difficult for this individual to navigate. When expectations and tasks are clear and simple, they can be of tremendous help. Fragility is not a fault. It is a nature. If it can be honored, it can become a strength. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - FOCUS / NEGATIVE POLE - PANIC MEntity: THE CAREFUL ONE - this is the individual who watches closely, evaluates, assesses, gauges, and cares very much about the details. They will tend to offer feedback, ideas, suggestions, etc. and this can be quite helpful and insightful. However, it can "come across" as complaining, bitching, combative, and defiant depending on how that individual presents her assessments. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - INFORMATIVE / NEGATIVE POLE - UNDERMINING MEntity: THE EAGER ONE - this is the "people pleaser" among you who simply wants to be useful and effective. He is eager to please, volunteer, stay late, come in early, etc. However, because of this, he is also the fastest to fall into victimhood and shift into manipulation, guilting, resentment, and even anger. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - HELPFUL / NEGATIVE POLE - MANIPULATIVE MEntity: THE WORKER - this is the person who simply does his job, comes in, listens, does what is expected, quietly goes along, and leaves work at work. However, he is rightfully not willing to work outside of a job description, will not respond well to these requests or expectations, and does not do well when there is change, redirection, or upheaval. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - RELIABLE / NEGATIVE POLE - INVISIBLE MEntity: THE FUN ONE - this is the person who may or may not get the job done or done well, but who tends to receive a great deal of leniency because he is key to keeping up morale, levity, and spirits. However, he can also become easily distracted with this position of keeping others happy and either find himself as a counselor, performer, comforter, or just an obnoxious distraction that makes it difficult for others to focus. He may be first to come forth "on behalf" of others if there are problems. If his tactics are sound, he makes a great Human Resources counselor. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - HEALER / NEGATIVE POLE - DISTRACTION MEntity: THE INVESTOR - this is the individual who is deeply invested in the well-being of the company, and can often be in positions where his role is key to that success. The investment does not have to be in terms of money, but time, energy, passion, vision, etc. However, he can easily lose sight of the details and of the joy and original motivation and enthusiasm if he feels threatened. He can shift into a disconnect from the environment and the soul of the company as he focuses only on the survival of it. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - COMMITMENT / NEGATIVE POLE - DEFENSIVE MEntity: THE BOSS - this is the individual who is usually in a position as "boss," but is not always in this position in any official capacity. This is the individual who steps up and helps direct, manage, control and focus others toward the project or point at hand. However, because his role is one of control, he can sometimes become demanding, shaming, distant, dismissive, and take for granted the humanity of those who he expects to be focused and available. MEntity: POSITIVE POLE - GUIDE / NEGATIVE POLE - HURTFUL (or "ASSHOLE") MEntity: We know our time is run out here for this format, but this is a glimpse of these positions. There is more to say, of course. MEntity: Good day to you, Diane. Goodbye, for now.

    Goals & Triad of Movement

    (Excerpt from Wholeness of Soul, Chapter 2, shared with permission) Movement can be said to be built from the triad of Action, Interaction, and Reaction. Life can be created or allowed through any point within that triad, but in any case, the ability to do so Confidently, and Without Attachment to results, will be the key to your more pleasant and pleasurable experience. Keep in mind that non-attachment is not apathy, nor is it a lack of desire. Non-attachment simply means that you acknowledge the inherent nature of change. GOALS & TRIAD OF MOVEMENT In most cases of the Ordinal Goal, the experiences of life will lean toward learning how to “REACT more Responsibly,” while the experiences of the Cardinal Goals will lean toward learning how to “ACT more Successfully.” Those Personalities who have the Goal of Relaxation/Flow will have experiences that lean toward learning how to “INTERACT more Navigationally.” We will define REACTION as your effort to minimize effects on you. We will define ACTION as your effort to maximize effects from you. We will define INTERACTION as the freedom from effort as a means to move with the fluctuations of Energy within the life. Reaction, Interaction, and Action can be done appropriately (positive) or inappropriately (negatively). When Reaction is appropriate, there is a RESPONSE to the Patterns within the life, like the use of an umbrella in an unexpected downpour of rain. Rain is a natural pattern in life, even if it is often unpredictable. However, how you respond to it often determines your experience of it. When Reaction to something as natural as rain is inappropriate, there is Defensiveness, such as anger, helplessness, and agitation at the rain’s effect on you. When Interaction is appropriate, there is NAVIGATION within the Patterns that are unfolding, much like a surfer on a wave, or the use of oars in a boat, but when Interaction is inappropriate, there is a crash into Paralysis, much like a sense of drowning in that wave, or losing one’s oars. When Action is appropriate, there is SUCCESS that is measurable and personally-fulfilling within the Patterns of the life, such as the fruits gathered from a watered crop, but when Action is inappropriate, there is a sense of Failure, as if one’s efforts meant nothing, such as might be the case if one were to find the yield from that crop not as expected. Appropriate Action does not undermine honest effort. POSITIVE > Responsible Navigation Success NEUTRAL > Reaction Interaction Action NEGATIVE > Defensive Paralysis Failure GOING TO EXTREMES Within all Goals there is a spectrum of experience that ranges across Reaction - Interaction - Action. Within that spectrum, there are extremes to which one might be inclined to fulfill his or her Goal that are counterproductive. In all Goals, the eventual point of balance will be in your capacity to REACT, INTERACT, and ACT effectively and appropriately, with confidence, trust, and non-attachment to results. If your Goal is Flow/Relaxation, you may find your “natural” counterproductive extremes lean toward Patterns of Inappropriate Interaction within events and relationships, so you may find an emphasis on your constantly learning how to Navigate, not control, the Actions and Reactions that are a part of life around you. Your increasing capacity to Navigate can then become the basis of more flexible and evolving definitions of Success, and improves your ability to Respond. If your Goal is Discrimination, Submission, or Re-evaluation, you may find you “naturally” lean toward Patterns of Inappropriate Reaction within events and relationships, so it could be said that there would be an emphasis on your constantly learning Responsibility (ability to respond) as a foundation for your definitions of Success, which then improves your ability to Navigate. If your Goal is Acceptance, Dominance, or Growth, you may find you “naturally” lean toward Patterns of Inappropriate Action over events and relationships, so it could be said that your emphasis is on constantly learning to define what Success even means to you in the first place so that you can build your foundation for understanding your Responsibilities, which then improves your ability to Navigate. Although we described the above as inclinations toward specific, inappropriate extremes relative to certain Goals, there are no rules to these inclinations, and one may experience any of these extremes, regardless of Goal. To help you examine further as to which extreme you may be inclined, regardless of your Goal, you can explore the following statements: When one experiences Inappropriate Actions, one tends to be disappointed in what one is GETTING OUT OF LIFE. When one experiences Inappropriate Reactions, one tends to be disappointed in what one is GETTING OUT OF OTHERS. When one experiences Inappropriate Interactions, one tends to be disappointed in what one is GETTING OUT OF ONESELF. People who are Responsible, Successful Navigators realize and behave in ways that recognize that WHAT YOU GET OUT OF LIFE, OTHERS, and SELF IS BASED ON WHAT YOU GIVE. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE LIE Some of you may delude yourselves into thinking that you “give and give and give” or “try and try and try” and you get nothing (or very little) in return, or that you are constantly imposed upon in some way that does not allow for your true nature to shine. This is one of your Great Lies to sustain the momentum of false security in the routine patterns of frustration in your life. The truth is: Your life is exactly as you need it; EXACTLY; without exception; including your defensiveness, your failures, your successes, and your responsibilities. This does not mean you like it or understand it. When you no longer need things the way they are (or think you need them the way they are), they can change. When you no longer want things they way they are, you can change them. There is something of value in your life AS IT IS, even with the effort and intent to change it. To interpret differently is to lie to one’s self. Unless there is another fragment, or group of fragments, who are creating a karmic imbalance by removing your ability to Choose, which would be in the form of some kind of imprisonment, torture, or death, then you have the ability to Act, Interact, or React in a way that can evolve in alignment with your wishes as a Personality and Essence. This means that any person who is undermining you, or any situation that is disempowering you, that you cannot describe as unlawful imprisonment, unsolicited torture, or murder, is a condition sustained ONLY by your participation in it. If you wanted things to change, you would change it. If you have not changed it, then there is some kind of value seeming to be gained from it. While this truth may seem harsh, it is, in fact, quite freeing. There is no fault here. No blame. Only a recognition of the nature of those undesired things in your life that could, can, or would change, but have not. You may not have control over many circumstances and conditions in your life, but you will always have control over your perspective of those circumstances and conditions, which is where the greatest and truest change exists. How you interpret your circumstances and conditions makes a difference. Being honest with yourselves about the investment you have in the supposed “worst,” or most uncomfortable, patterns of your life can be quite freeing, potentially unbinding your energy to move in ways that are far more genuinely alive, and beneficial for all involved. Some of your “worst” situations, conditions, or perspectives of those situations and conditions, may actually have a great deal of “payoff” for you in ways that you have not taken the time to explore because your Reactions are defensive. Or you may have the capacity to change your situation, condition, or perspective, or do things differently, but you have not made the effort because your Actions continue to be interpreted as Failures, instead of as processes of learning.
  4. There was a 7 Stages of the Goal NWM done a few years prior that hasn't been thoroughly finished in terms of what each term means for each Goal. I think finishing this off with another session would be a nice addition. In addition, learning about the 7 Stages of the Mode and Attitude would also be fine additions, and can further help flesh out and validate each trait.
  5. MICHAEL SPEAKS Transcript 110909 Michael Entity: Hello to each of you. We are here with you now. QUESTION: Will Michael please comment on Drunvalo Melchizedek's claims and the flower of life seminar about mass ascension into Christ Consciousness around 2012? Michael Entity: We see this as yet another fantastical, yet attractive, interpretation of a rather insignificant, non-event for the sake of emotional and material capitalization. We say this as a matter of basic fact, and not to cast a negative light on such things. It is quite satisfying to many to have an imaginary end-point toward which to focus personal evolution, and 2012 has been co-opted, interpreted, and hung out as a banner of warning or hope by nearly every angle of spirituality. Simple questioning and investigation can often clarify these ominous predictions to show that there is no validity, so when one is quite willing to "play along" with these scenarios, one has determined that there is some kind of value in that game, or at the very least, a resonance to internal fears that are in need of addressing. As long as calendars exist along with Young and Mature Souls within a population, there will be impending doomsday dates to impose dramatic descriptions for undramatic shifts. QUESTION: Does that mean "ascended masters" did not create a Christ Consciousness grid around the earth and that there will not be a group "awakening"? Michael Entity: We would not be so conclusive as to say "no," but we will say that this interpretation and imagery is rather embellished. Some fragments find theatrical imagery appealing, and the personifications help some to open to support from non-physical guides. From many mythologies, templates are generated from the imagery and then fragments can use those to attract and funnel legitimate support, with entities and fragments playing the role offered by the template. For instance, there is no "Zeus," or "Goddess" per se, but one can use that template as a funnel for Astral fragments and entities to work through. The "ascended masters" are another network of templates that are used by multiple Astral fragments and entities. "Archangel Michael," for example, is not the same source for every group who works with that template. These templates act as accessible, larger-than-life roles within a fragment's life that helps one to connect or resonate to support and forces beyond the immediately-tangible. Even the Judeo-Christian "God" is merely a mythological template. We, ourselves, used the template of "The Sun God" in the Oracles of Delphi as a means to work with our students at the time. Once personification is involved with a non-physical teacher, or source, a template is born and up for grabs for people to use as a medium of contact with entities willing to play the role described by that template. In some cases, that template is used as a means for housing the divided elements of the incarnated person attracted to it. For example, our own name has become a template, and some who claim to channel us simply use that template to deliver their own messages and ideas in the hopes of validating their own perceptions, sense of value, while securing an audience and using the built-in credentials. QUESTION: Speaking of fantastical, yet attractive new aged teachings, does Michael consider A Course in Miracles to be a creation for the purpose of emotion and material capitalization? Michael Entity: We will say that there is personally-valuable information within Drunvalo Melchizedek's and A Course in Miracle's teachings, regardless of the validity of the information, and the use of highly-profitable marketing tactics. We merely responded with a random comment, as requested, and we do see the theatrics of 2012 to be purely for marketing, as that year has no significance in terms of any Mayan Calendar calculations. QUESTION: In Michael's observation/experience are the dramatic descriptions used for the polarity shifts and the earth wobble simply exaggerations for undramatic shifts? Michael Entity: Observations of potential, impending shifts, such as what has come to be known as "global warming," or "earth wobble," or "polarity shifts," meteor impacts, shifts in mass consciousness, etc, are valid to some degree, however, these kinds of events are not on a schedule that can be marked in any way that is predictable at this point, and most of these are shifts that would take longer than any single lifetime. We will add, though, that because of the amount of emphasis on 2012 by such a large mass of consciousness, we do see a high potential for "something" to be significant, though it would most likely be interpreted differently for different groups, depending on their view of reality. QUESTION: This will seem off the wall but I have a reason for asking it: I understand you do not predict so I am interested in probabilities. If an encounter had been planned in, say, oh the next 2 years by what would be considered to us "alien" in nature, it would seem like those plans would have already been put into place due to logistical reasons. Is there a high probability in say the next 2 years of alien contact here on Earth? If so, where would this species be coming from and what are their intentions? Michael Entity: Alien contact has already become a rather substantial part of your world, albeit in ways that are not obvious to the population. There are many reasons for its not being a part of the world-at-large, most reasons being that it is illegal, so to speak, by standards set among traveling species. "Official" contact is with small groups and has a long-term goal that is intended for slow reveal and acclimation, but there are problems that continue to come up for that plan, moving the debate toward a sudden reveal as being more practical. The debate of "sudden vs slow" has been on the table for nearly 30 years, regularly stalled because of world politics that reveal the inherent dangers that already exist among humans toward each other, let alone toward an off-planet species. Your species is seen as extremely vulnerable and dangerous, and nothing in recent history has suggested otherwise to sway the debate. QUESTION: Can you elaborate of the types of small groups? Michael Entity: Though we described the contact with off-planet species as "substantial," we will clarify that it has been minimal in the "official" contexts. The debates are among the off-planet species. There are no regular board meetings with Humans. The "official" contact has been made with military groups, as most already suspect. Tests and observations will continue in the forms of "crop circles" and through observing your media portrayal in both fiction and non-fiction of off-planet species, and various other ways, along with the debate. Those most interested in your well-being are the same circle of species who helped relocate your species here long ago as a means to protect you from extinction. Most of what we are conveying to you is incapable of being validated, so we do not ask you to "believe" us, as we do not ask this of you for any part of our teaching or sharing of our perception. QUESTION: My question concerns overleaves on the Assimilation axis in general, and the Goal of Flow in particular. Michael have said that you can shift from the Negative Pole of an overleaf by using the Positive Pole of the complementary overleaf on the same axis. But with Assimilative overleaves, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out which Positive Pole would be most appropriate to consider depending on the situation. Is there a way to figure that out easily, especially in relation to the Goal of Flow? Michael Entity: We would first say that the Goal of Flow would naturally gravitate toward that which would help lead to Flow, without having to be so strategic, so our first suggestion would be to look at your personal history of choices that led to a sense of freedom. This would bring some personal clarity to your natural process. Next, we would suggest that when one wants to bring an awareness to the process of moving from the negative pole of an Assimilative Overleaf to the positive pole of another overleaf, you would ask yourself if your situation calls for ACTION, EXPRESSION, or INSPIRATION. Once that question has been answered in a way that feels fairly accurate, then one would ask if the situation calls for a focused or broader (ordinal/cardinal) solution. An easier way to interpret this line of questioning might be: Do I need to DO, FEEL, or BE something as a means to be Free? And does this require immediate focus, or long-range planning? For example, with Observation: Do I need to DO, FEEL, or BE something as a means to see with Clarity? And do I require immediate clarity, or a higher clarity? And finally, we would say that you could "throw a dart" at your Overleaf chart and any positive pole would be an effective path from the negative pole of your primary Overleaf. One CANNOT go "wrong" in choosing any positive pole for use in returning to a sense of True Personality and manifestation of Essence. ALL Positive Poles are resonant with every other Positive Pole, therefore allowing a move from one Overleaf to another with ease. QUESTION: Hello Michael, I know that several of us here today are Cadre 1 Entity 2, could you elaborate on how this cadre/entity is manifesting itself, what we are teaching in our current global community? Michael Entity: Cadre 1, Entity 2 appears to be manifesting itself, as usual, in the struggle and implementation of Stability over Balance. Nearly every fragment from that Entity over the physical age of 20 has "pulled back from life" in a way that is figuratively holding Balance in one hand, and Stability in the other. All Entity 2s struggle within the spectrum between Balance and Stability, and eventually the Entity, collectively, "gets it" and a wave of realization moves among the members. Currently, the majority of Entity 2 members of Cadre 1 appear to be in a state of limbo, unsure of how to go forward with Stability in "the real world." Withdrawing from life, so to speak, has given the glimpses of Stability that can now begin to make sense as feasible. How to bring that back out into the world of "living life" still escapes most of the members currently exploring this. What most Entity 2 members learn to do is the equivalent of placing two feet on a plank of wood that rests on a ball, teetering and rocking and rolling on that ball, feet planted squarely, and as long as one does not fall, it passes as Stability. However, all energy goes into just staying atop the ball, and this tends to be exhausting, and most eventually "fall" (get ill, have an accident, move into crisis) as a means to just get some rest, because despite the fact that those experiences are often traumatic, they at least offer a stability that is not a part of life when balancing atop the ball. Stability is when the ball is removed, and both feet are, figuratively. on solid ground. We describe this to you as a process, and not as one way being better than another. Many Entity 2 members will gladly state how exciting the Balance on the ball can be, and the "falling off" gives life meaning. Balance is a state that requires division within for the sake of managing the life. Stability is when the life comes into a state of wholeness that does not require compartmentalization, division, juggling, etc. We know many members of Entity 2 are extremists. Extremism is a form of Balance, going from one extreme to another on a regular basis. All or Nothing. Eventually the realization comes that life does not have to be "all or nothing." This spectrum of manifestation described for Entity 2 is not unfamiliar to many fragments who are not a part of an Entity 2, so this information may be applicable to you, regardless of your Entity number. However, our descriptions for Entity themes do describe the inherent, condensed, and consistent priorities of an Entity within a Cadre. Entity 2 of Cadre 1 is currently themed in the reality and implementation of "growing up," or being a "grown up," regardless of the age of the Personality. Stability, "growing up," and manifesting Soul Age, which has regularly been equated with something akin to death for many in Entity 2, is now starting to be seen as something appealing, even if that appeal is confusing. The teachings of Entity 2, then, could be described as themed in "how to sustain and nurture innocence and joy along with the process of maturing." QUESTION: Could Michael please comment on the experiences of Carl Jung as documented in his recently released “Red Book”? In particular, I'm curious to hear about how Jung induced the "active imaginations" as described in this book. Michael Entity: Jung merely observed a natural phenomenon of the culture of beliefs that are inclined toward personification, and in observing this, sought to harness it. We do not see any particular method for his inducing active imaginations, though he does appear to have developed cues to help, but rather he allowed room for that natural tendency in his therapies. This was revolutionary to some extent since these factors were not given any validity before his theories. We will also add that our channel has not read the book in question, so our comments are limited to our access to, and interpretation of, Jung's records. QUESTION: What are the 7 levels of 'true" mastery on the side of truth ??? ...is there a group collective consciousness occurring, as, well, as, a ...collective consciousness of all the assortment of 7 levels of a fragment ...(where one can tap into going back to an infant - to the current manifested age, ...and, even forward to the ultimate return to the tao) consciously, and, unconsciously- ...as, if past-present-future and now, are occurring in The Pivot of The NOW ? or, does love/and, energy also factor into the sum total (since, it is a trine/or trinity) 3 aspects of a cadre/entity Michael Entity: The 7 stages of Mastery would be the same for all fragments, and this might be described as the process that is the set of Overleaves called GOALS, or in words that are more relevant, such as Focus, Refinement, Commitment, Flexibility, Affection, Meaning, and Embodiment. We also add that these are facets, not stages. The experience of a fragment within the structure of Time can use "the now" as a pivotal point for accessing future and past, though not necessarily in any literal way. The experience of Time is an Emotional reality, so when one "goes back in time," one can affect the present by altering the interpretation an experience of the past. It is true that there is "only the now," and that it is a pivotal power point. In our teachings, we simply use the word "choice" in place of "the now," as Choice is the active element in the experience of time, past, future, and present. QUESTION: Hello Troy/Michael entity. I have a three part question that hopefully will be beneficial to the whole group. I had a personal experience not too long ago with the drug Salvia Divinorum. It is said that drugs like Salvia D and DMT take you to a "different dimension" and I was wondering what happened to me/where I went in my Salvia D experience, how exactly these type of drugs work, and if Michael believes these types of drugs (Salvia D and DMT) are beneficial to aid in the process of "spiritual awakening" because my experience with Salvia D definitely sent me down a path towards my current spiritual awakenings and also to the Michael Teachings. =) Michael Entity: Banging one's head into a wall, or dancing on a mountain top, can also bring a spiritual awakening, so we see all elements of life as potential tools for growth, including drugs. The drug in question appears to stimulate a combination that lowers inhibition and generates increased sensitivity to one's internal symbolism in a way that can be interpreted as "spiritual" and "safe" to explore. We see this as being a means to actively dream, so to speak, and those who actively explore dream imagery (without drugs) can easily share similar spiritual revelations. The use of the drugs in question would be a path of exploration one must choose to explore on one's own, but we can only say that results would vary among those who choose it. Drugs used for active "spiritual" exploration are often proportionally effective to the degree that one has become inhibited in the Personality. The more inhibited one is, the more profound the experience of the release from inhibition might be. In that regard, the choice to explore this option is valid, though one is never guaranteed a profound revelation by accessing what has become hidden. Often that access can be terrifying and even crippling to the life. QUESTION: Years ago in another Michael chat group, there was a lot of discussion about a time in Tonga where there were lots of us Michael students around. While I could certainly relate to the appeal of a beach lifetime, was this valid? I've not seen anything about this since. Michael Entity: It is valid that many students passed through that region in a group for a while as a means to explore Re-evaluation, but because of the nature of a simplified lifetime, it does not "register" high in the "memory" of a current Personality. QUESTION: Would the Michaels care to comment on the channelings of Muhammad, since I feel that it's probable he was a channel rather than what is accepted as a religious prophet. I'd also welcome the Michaels' take on the Islamic mantra "Lakum dinnakum, wallya din" - "to you be your way, and to me be mine" in the context of the push for Islam to dominate the western lifestyle via the enforced implementation of Shariah law which, by Qur'anic implication, should simply be passively available to those who choose to follow it rather than being a requirement. Michael Entity: This King-Cast Priest fragment represented the totality of one reunited Entity's perspective and was, indeed, a Transcendental Soul. We remind you that a Transcendental Soul, unlike an Infinite Soul, is still subject to Maya and Chief Features, and this fragment never rose beyond his Chief Features of Martyrdom and Greed. The imprinting from Artisans and Warriors around this fragment from their wounded views of their position relative to authority, and their lot in life, began the distortion of the teachings that were originally intended for a rise in confidence among the weak, poor, and helpless. The teachings began to attract those who resonated strongly to victimization and their fear of not having enough, turning the teachings into a path paved by resentment and defense, which continues to color the teachings to this day. The mantra quoted might be one of the few moments of clarity from the Priest's entity, but even this mantra was corrupted with a force that best be summed up as an addendum of "....as long as your way is also mine." Muhammad is one of 5 Transcendental Souls of the Common Era. One Transcendental Soul of the 5 who had any significant "positive" effect as intended was that of Gandhi. We will conclude here. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.

    FLOW

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of FLOW When Flow is chosen, there is an interest in noticing the subtleties of life, in learning to relax and take a break and trust in Essence, Intuition and Surrender. Flow is about learning where you have control, and where you must navigate what life “throws”, rather than strain to sustain control over it. As such, Flow often struggles with high levels of stress, anxiety, control issues and panic very easily. In -Inertia/Momentum/Stagnation, Flow feels stuck in a rut,” doing a lot of nothing”, and keeping up a momentum that never changes; or he feels he’s being moved forward/halted against his will, moving in, or being pulled into a direction that he knows is impending as an obligation, resents having to negotiate, or wants to distract from. Otherwise stated, this is the feeling that life is going nowhere, or is moving in a direction he would rather alter. He is being pulled against his will, against his plans and trajectory. Flow can use any other Goal to Struggle against Inertia/Momentum/Stagnation or Bring Peace/Freedom- Re-Evaluation would simplify to the key struggles, reducing life/activity/focus in order to bring clarity on what's wanted/needed for freedom. // Growth would feel confused+overwhelmed, turning those struggles of inertia into opportunities for meaningful growth. Discrimination would want to make better+more refined choices, rejecting until there is a sense of resonance to some means of bringing freedom. // Acceptance would feel ingratiating, removing the pressure to accept something keeping him inert, so that he can truly accept an experience/relationship because he means it and wants to, not because he can or has to. Submission would realize what his struggles are amplifying, redirecting himself to more replenishing(freeing) directions. // Dominance would take charge, dictating direction until turning his challenges into opportunities for leadership. In +Freedom then, Flow can surrender to the forces that sway him, but also work within those forces greater than him to the best of his ability; he no longer tries to control his speed or direction, but makes small changes to create a cumulative effect. When he surrenders, he relaxes and adapts to the flow of life to realign himself and move at a more comfortable pace. He embraces the space between experiences to catch up with himself and just be, feel, do, and live without apology/proof. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Flow Member: Cong- Freedom is the path of least resistance.

    DOMINANCE

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of DOMINANCE When Dominance is chosen, the life is about actively embodying a cause or direction for others or for yourself. It is about learning to take an active role in leading all involved to an end goal accomplishment, fulfillment or satisfaction. In Dominance, you are Motivated and Challenged to learn where+how you’re most needed/effective as an exemplary status; where+how to use your influence, either in leading others/yourself literally, or with a constant self-consciousness you’re setting an example. In -Dictatorship, Dominance imposes a direction of absolute authority/control in face of any chaos/distrust of the parts of self, resources or people involved in making things happen. And regardless of their support or negotiation. Any straying from the direction she enforces, results in punishment, collapse, exasperation, or on more personal levels: a deep sense of guilt or shame. She may even guilt or shame you or herself into action, or resign from the leadership status, being oblivious/in denial of her impact. To move from -Dictatorship to +Leadership, Dominance must bring +Devotion to her desires, and realize what can help in providing for the parts involved so that those parts of self, or the others involved, can move forward together, with a common goal. Thus in +Leadership, she can manage and provide for those parts of self/people involved in the direction accordingly, so that all can come together to best move forward for the benefit of the whole. She realizes that there are many parts that must come together for true fulfillment, and she allows herself to be where she is in life, knowing that her choice DOES make a difference- it DOES have impact. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Dominance Member: Janet- Leadership listens.

    SUBMISSION

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of SUBMISSION When Submission is chosen, the life is about actively immersing and giving energy to a cause or direction that matters to you. With Submission, what matters is what you DO about what you care about, or are aiming for in the long run. The Goal of Submission is to learn where+how your energy/dedication is best directed(given) and where+how it is being received. In -Subservience, Submission gives/devotes her energy in a direction where it’s not being well-received, or where she feels empty, nothing coming from the devotion, or where others feel imposed upon by her, and take her actions through rote, shame, or obligation. She just feels unreplenished by her efforts+contribution, as nothing is being reciprocated. This can cause her to short circuit or burn out, so she continues to give in a direction that "benefits" only the cause, or only to "fill" herself, getting to her goals at any expense. To move from -Subservience to +Devotion, Submission must +Dominate(Influence) the broken circuit of energy she’s creating, realizing the impact and influence of her choices and owning them, so as to move her dedication/contribution to a more receptive and reciprocative cause/direction. In +Devotion then, she realizes what’s missing- be that communication, taking a break, self-care- so that what she’s giving to, and/or actively contributing to through her actions, is both being well-received and replenishes her(leaving her feeling good). -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Submission Member: Diane- Devotion to LIFE Wants/Needs of Essence Roles- Tidbit on Submission Member: Janet- Power & Submission/Dominance Member: Diane- CF Report May 1999 Energy Report January 2015 Energy Report February 2015 Energy Report

    ACCEPTANCE

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of ACCEPTANCE When Acceptance is chosen, there is an effort to define the life by including everyone in it, and developing not just a tolerance, but a true acceptance of all choices made by the self and others. It is about saying YES, but meaning it with integrity+honesty (Genuinity) ; moving away from any conditions you have for one to be acceptable, or for you to accept. In -Ingratiation, he forces false acceptance, either ingratiating himself to be falsely courteous, wanting to please, be nice, be liked, bending over backwards, altering himself on your terms to be more acceptable etc. OR he ingratiates you, expecting you to accept, to get him, to forgive, forget, get over it, and say YES even if you don’t mean it. Both are done out of fear, or routine, or even from obligation and pressure(internally or externally). Otherwise stated, he turns to Ingratiation in face of Emptiness or Desperation, and this leaves him feeling exhausted, meaningless and powerless. It is not true acceptance. To move from -Ingratiation to +Agape, Acceptance must +Refine, allowing himself to say NO to that which is not in harmony with him; to stand his ground. But also allowing himself to understand the same stance from others. The more comfortably he can accept him or others saying NO to what’s unacceptable, the more unconditionally (and ironically) he can say YES to accepting more than he has. In +Agape, he brings kindness+acceptance to when he, or you say NO- understanding the importance of clear boundaries and the extent of one’s current parameters of acceptance- and he rises beyond the pressure+obligation he expects from himself, or you to say YES. His GENUINITY creates proof to him that unconditional love is powerful+embracing. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Acceptance Member: Maureen- Agape accepts Action Equality in Relationships- Acceptance Understanding your OLs (Member: Luciana)- Ingratiation seeks Approval Member: Dawn- Essence Themes Member: Dawn- CF Report Member: Maureen- Truth, Acceptance & Innocence Motivation and Meaning Growing into Overleaves Agape through Discrimination April 2016 Energy Report

    DISCRIMINATION

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of DISCRIMINATION When Discrimination is chosen, there is an effort to define the life on one’s own and make better, more refined choices for yourself that you like. It is about saying NO, but meaning it with integrity+honesty; stripping away all the “bullshit” that you or others create to navigate life with a better understanding, and a clarity of distinction. When in -Rejection, he messily, outright rejects all his choices, or experiences a literal or symbolic rejection from other people or things that leads him to learn to just say NO all the time. He simply says/finds ways to say NO, to avoid having to look at, deal with, or experience what he does not want to. Otherwise stated, he turns to rejection to deal with any Loathing or Imposition, often from a point of protection, overgeneralization or prejudice, leaving him with nothing or very little as his default choice in the end. To move from -Rejection to +Refinement, Discrimination must +Accept and say YES to something in what he's rejecting. He cannot truthfully mean NO, unless he first says YES. As an example, rather than rejecting an entire selection of grapes because a few are bruised, he would reject only those that are bruised, accepting the rest. In +Refinement/Sophistication, he determines+chooses what of his available choices, he resonates with, bringing clarity + refinement to his communication when saying YES, and rising above reactionary rejection when saying NO. He turns away what he deems appropriate to, rather than everything, finding the diamond in the coal. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Discrimination Equality in Relationships- Discrimination Understanding your OLs (Member: Johanne)- Rejection vs Refinement Member: Matt- Discrimination Member: Hani- Goal of Discrimination Member: Hani- Essence Manifestation(Slide to Acceptance) Member: Hani- Rejection is a Reaction, Sophistication is a Choice January 2016 Energy Report March 2016 Energy Report April 2016 Energy Report

    GROWTH

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of GROWTH When Growth is chosen, there is an intention to take on new experiences that prompt understanding in many diverse ways. It is the goal of CREATING MEANING in experience, or seeing how experiences can be turned into meaningful events that contribute to your evolution. Growth is about moving from seeking meaningful experiences to creating meaningful experiences. It is about owning your place in the creation of your life. When in -Confusion, Growth feels overwhelmed/terrified to choose from so many open-ended choices, or she feels the choices she’s making/need to make are senseless, pointless, meaningless. It is all too overwhelming to process, to choose, and above all she doesn’t like the unintended or unwanted experiences she’s dealt. Often then, Growth will just recoil, resist or escape from the consequences of her choices, believing she can’t be held accountable for her choices because she’s confused. To move from -Confusion to +Evolution, Growth must +Simplify what an experience means to her. This is as simple as just focusing down to one or two options, choices or directions to act on, and choosing the one that feels the most relevant, meaningful, helpful. Or it could be about coming to an understanding about what an experience is helping her to learn, what she cares about most, what she’s aiming for etc. In +Evolution, she allows for new meanings to form in an experience/relationship and owns the choices she makes and has the right to make. She explores, creates and nurtures what matters to her, however she can, and this helps transform her experiences into more understanding, loving, embracing or meaningful ones. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Growth Member: Bobby- Evolution recognizes friction.

    RE-EVALUATION

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. GOAL of RE-EVALUATION When Re-Evaluation is chosen, the life is set up so the individual focuses on 1 or 2 clearly defined things, states or areas lifelong. These can be physical, emotional or intellectual, but there is always a clear goal that the life is themed around, and often there are impairments in the life that help process these in some way. The states focused on are often based upon past life themes where so much was taken in but little processed, so the Re-Evaluator often also lives with 1 foot in another world, in a high-functioning daydream state so that “real life” seems to pass much slower or faster than for others. It may not seem the personality is doing much processing, but the essence is, and the personality can connect to and benefit from this. When in -Withdrawal, the focus/activity is far too oversimplified, to the point that the Re-Evaluator feels a withdrawal from his life force, and no longer feels alive. This can often be seen in extreme isolation/daydreaming or certain mental illnesses. This loneliness then, repels all other experience. To move from -Withdrawal to +Simplicity, he must slide to +Evolution, and digest and process his experiences to prompt himself to grow and feel inspired to take on new layers of the clearly defined thing/state/area he’s focused on. +Simplicity then, is a state that sees the key issues to be focused on and processed, and he works through them, without losing the vitality and liveliness that keeps him in touch with the world. Re-Evaluation’s motto is “One step forward. Two steps back.” -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: 7 Stages of Re-Evaluation Member: Matt- Why choose Re-Evaluation?

  13. Channeled through Troy Tolley 030408 Michael Entity When one looks at our system of Overleaves and explores the concept of the Goal for a lifetime, it is often assumed that this trait describes an inherent quality of the Personality. For instance, a person with the Goal of Acceptance might mean that this person is an “accepting person,” but this may or may not be the case. More accurately, the Goal describes a direction of emphasis toward which a fragment intended to go in terms of experience for the lifetime, and describes the context through which those experiences will be filtered. In other words, the Goal describes the MOTIVATION behind a fragment’s actions, and the MEANING toward which he or she is trying to build a case. When looking at your Goal, it will bring great insight to consider it as being linked to every single action within the lifetime. Your Goal may not always be directly linked to your feelings, to your thoughts, to your spirituality, but it is ALWAYS linked to your ACTIONS. Everything you DO is in some way intended to emphasize your Goal. For fragments that tend to live the life unconsciously (for lack of a better term) the lifetime can still be viewed in terms of actions directly emphasizing the Goal, but Meaning will be applied to those actions after the lifetime has ended and is [in] review. For those who choose to bring some awareness to the lifetime and to the process of comprehending how one’s actions emphasize the Goal, it can be quite enlightening to view Actions of the life in terms of how it builds a case for or against your Goal. In other words, what do your actions MEAN? What are you DOING with your life? What are you DOING with your relationships? What are you DOING about your health, your wealth, your feelings, your thoughts, etc. What do you find to be the common theme among all of your actions as they relate to all elements of your life? Beyond the simplified description of seeing your Goal as a state to achieve, or as a basket in which you collect your experiences, it could be far more accurate to see your Goal as a quality of life toward which your actions seek to PROVE or DISPROVE. It could be said that a lifetime will be spent building a case FOR and AGAINST the Goal. Though one will tend to have an inclination toward proving or disproving, both angles are explored. Every action within the lifetime is a collection of evidence to support or refute the Goal. In most cases, the positive and negative poles of the Goal can give indications as to whether one is disproving or proving the Goal. For example, if one has a Goal of Growth, the positive Pole of Evolution will tend to prove that Growth is valuable and meaningful, whereas Confusion, the negative pole, will indicate that your actions are collecting experiences that prove that Growth is “not worth it,” overwhelming, senseless, etc. If one has a Goal of Acceptance, the positive pole of Agape can indicate that one is actively creating proof that love is powerful, embracing, and meaningful, whereas the negative pole of Ingratiation indicates a collection of experiences that show how Acceptance can degrade, diminish, and damage a person, seeming to be a meaningless experience. For those who choose to implement the Goal with some awareness, it can help for you to always ask these basic questions: 1. WHAT AM I DOING? 2. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO ME? 3. AM I PROVING OR DISPROVING THIS QUALITY OF LIFE? Keeping in mind that your Goal describes a QUALITY of life that ALREADY EXISTS toward which every Action is building a case for or against can bring about a great amount of liberation to your movement through the life. The Goal is not a destination or an accomplishment, but a comprehension. It is the process of adding Action plus Meaning, and then measuring where one is [in] relation to that Quality of life.
  14. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  15. [Question] what is michael’s definition of real purpose / real task / real mission – is this something that is contractual between our essence/and, our fragment and, essence will come in to communicate it to us… it seems that this “real work” occurs for fragments between the 4th I.M. and, 5th I.M., does it have 7 levels of operation ??? and, if so, what are they ??? maybe some people do it ; before the 4th-and, starting of the th – and, do it throughout their lifes starting of the 5th – and, do it throughout their lifes [Michael Entity] We would think our phrase of “Life Task” may be of relevance here, and we would define that as “the original motivation for the physical form and for the dynamics of the Personality.” There are no contracts in this case, but there are intentions and agreements that are helped along by Essence until the Personality is no longer interested. The Life Task is what Essence intended to experience in the lifetime through this particular Personality. What Essence intends NEVER overrides what Personality decides. Essence has no urgency for these intentions because it is fully aware of the fact that it can create another lifetime and body for trying again. In addition to the option for creating new lifetimes for the intent of a task, there are also parallel branches within a single lifetime where, more often than not, at least one version of “you” does co-create the life with Essence and fulfill the task. Essence will never impose its vision upon the Personality beyond the original motivation and design. Most Personalities can determine their Life Task quite easily because it is more often than not something they already do. The Life Task is a primary consideration in the design of Personality, so whether one experiences the fulfillment of that task, or merely develops fruitless habits and patterns, the clues would still be there. If one is not already doing something related to the Life Task, then clues are usually found in what one WISHES one were doing. It is valid that the 4th Internal Monad is usually the stage within the life when a fragment truly questions the alignment of self with soul, or life with essence, or path with presence, depending on the spirituality of the individual. There are 7 stages to the process of fulfilling the Life Task and they correspond to the 7 stages within the 4th Internal Monad. We will include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] [Question] How is life task related to self karma. Are they the same? [Michael Entity] The Life Task is related to Self-Karma only insofar as Self-Karma is an obstacle to the fulfillment of the Life Task. They are not interlocked, but some fragments can find the distractions of Self-Karma to block or deflect any sense of fulfillment of the Task. Many are capable of managing both the Life Task and the work of Self-Karma, especially if the Life Task is in an unrelated life context from the Self-Karma. [Question] Is there only one life task, or is there typically a bundle of tasks to be completed? [Michael Entity] Some choose to have an arcing Life Task with several tasks to build upon, but the concept of the Life Task is a singular context as a whole. It would help to think of the Life Task as a QUALITY sought to be experienced, much like the Goal is. In fact, the Life Task is simply a more focused detail of the Goal.
