February 28, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. We will begin with a quick Energy Report for the weeks between March 2 through March 15. We had spoken of some “awe-inspiring” event, either private or public, that seemed to be generating for the Older Souls on the planet. We believed to this to have had some root in manifesting in February, but we do not see that this came to pass. We can NEVER predict an event; we can only share what we see as probabilities and even the highest probabilities are not to be relied upon, merely used as a guide. Because of the vague quality of this event and its potentially different meanings for each Older Soul, this makes it more difficult to gauge. At this point, we will merely point out that what we had seen as a probability, still is, but we can only say the time frame has extended for its manifestation. It is significant enough that many of you will easily report that something either privately, independently, OR something publicly, struck you with a moving sense of awe. We believe you will know that has happened synchronistically when several of you report similar experiences to each other. On other, more common levels, the energy in general seems stable and the focus is moving toward literally, the weather. Drastic shifts in temperature and climate seem to be the distraction over the next few weeks. As we have shared before, in other exchanges, the weather is directly linked to the basic, shared emotional state of a population. That emotional climate is then reflected in the weather. The delays in effect are varying from geographical location to geographical location, and population to population, but in general, the weather shows the emotional climate of the previous 3 months. In the United States, the Emotional climate of the West is usually around 6 months behind in the weather, while the East is sometimes less than 30 days. We will remind you, but will elaborate more in our next exchange, that the shared energy has so far been focused on the implementation of the GOAL for the year. As the season of Spring moves closer, a shift toward the MODE may alter many fragment's contextual focus. When we say the focus has been on the GOAL, we mean that the shared context has been about taking action, asking questions about what to DO, making changes in directions and plans, determining how what you are doing fits with what others are doing. When the shift of focus comes to the Mode, the context will be more about intimacy and relationships. We will conclude the Energy Report. We would like to note that included in the Energy of the planet at this time is a great deal of unrest from obvious areas and mentalities, but to report every potential disaster or attack would be useless to most of our students. We do not see a point in emphasizing the dangers of the Physical Plane in this context. We do not have to remind you that this time frame is not an easy one, nor a particularly peaceful one, in general. Attacks will happen. That is as useful as we can be in that area. We will now take questions. We understand this is in Open Floor evening, though we will also respond to questions about the energy report. [SusanSF] As to our community I’m sensing the same. A hidden has been uncovered that I want to respond compassionately. This is not a personal but a community I would like clarification on for All of us. It came from a validation from the astral dream time that could affect us All. [M_Entity] And what is your question, Susan? [SusanSF] Do I do anything about it or just let it ride? Or I can pass on to the next in queue. [M_Entity] Though we are not completely clear on your question, we do think you are referring to a phenomenon that is occurring for many of the Older Souls, which is an exploration of many potential catastrophes and disasters as they may manifest for people. [SusanSF] In our community…. [M_Entity] For some, the experiences are being taken literally as signs of potential disaster. This may or may not be true. We can only say that part of the evolution of an Older Soul is in learning to interpret his/her emotional realm and astral experiences in ways that are applicable to the life. In short, it is your choice in what to do with what you know. In most instances where a prophecy is valid, any verbal sharing of that knowledge is rarely heeded. Until intuition and dreams are commonly understood, and alarmists stop predicting catastrophes each month, most will not hear even the most founded warnings. [ludmila] What can you tell us about our individual guides and angels? Do they have overleaves and are they our discarnate ET's or TC's? [M_Entity] Guides do not have Overleaves. Unless you are referring to a Physical Plane Guide, such as a Tour Director, which we believe you do not mean. We do not differentiate between “angels” and “guides,” in terms of nonphysical support and assistance. Most of your more intimate and “felt” presences of Guidance do tend to come primarily from discarnate Entity Mates, Cadence Members, Essence Twins, Task Companions, and Cadre Mates. [ludmila] What is a tour director? [M_Entity] We would define a “tour director” as a human being in a position to direct a group of fragments through a popular setting, pointing out its history, features, and entertainment, etc. In general, ALL fragments have at least 3 nonphysical Guides. [MaryBV] Could Michael please tell me what percentage of Cadre 1, entity 1 is cycled off? Of those remaining on the physical plane, what is the average soul age? [M_Entity] We see currently that 23% of Cadre One, Entity One is Cycled Off. The average Soul Age is 3rd Old. We did not include those who are Cycled off in that average, though we did include those who are not extant, but still within the cycles of incarnation. [kathryn41] (If this is too personal, I will withdraw the question) Four of us in this community are questioning whether we are a working quadrate. We wish to know how best to determine if this is so, how to validate our relationships with each other, and, if we are a quadrate, how to gain a more a conscious awareness of our project. [M_Entity] We encourage you to assume you are a Quadrate. Following the draw to work or socialize in a certain group is where your answer lies. Within that exploration, your Tasks will become evident. The validation can be done internally and externally. Internal validation is simply that you have determined it is true; there is no need to “test” that knowing. External validation would be if the other fragments in the group agree with your perception and knowing. [SusanSF] Could that include true study, besides true work then? [M_Entity] True Validation includes BOTH internal and external. The way to bring to light the combined goal of the Quadrate is simply to determine if you share a common interest and project at all. Whoever appears to have been the initiation behind the group would share what she believes are valid aspirations for that group. Knowledge will, by default, step in to refine those ideas and aspirations. In response to Susan's sub-question: The “Trues” that support the Life Task/True Work would inherently be included, though not necessarily as obviously. [JNelson] What is guilt? [M_Entity] Guilt is pointless self-punishment. It is entirely based in Chief Feature. There are 7 Guilts, then, linked to each Chief Feature. It is a prolonged version of “learning a lesson.” We have shared extensively on this subject and Troy will include in this transcript a copy of our deeper treatment of that subject. [Talyn] Do our discarnate spirit guides ever “resign or hand us off” to a new guide during a single incarnation or lifetime? As in a prearranged “agreement” on the other side? Particularly if our task companions this lifetime are discarnate guides? [M_Entity] We would not describe a Guide as “handing you off” to another Guide, but there are Guides who are temporary, and Guides who are “permanent” for the life of the Fragment. Each Fragment has at least the 3 Guides permanently for the life. The three Guides are specifically related to the Centers/Axes. Each working with that element of that Fragment's life, such as the EMOTIONAL/Higher EMOTIONAL Guide, the INTELLECTUAL/Higher INTELLECTUAL, etc. [Talyn] So it would not be totally unusual to sense the presence of a newly discarnate recently deceased guide? [M_Entity] It is fairly unusual for a recently deceased Fragment to become a Guide, though it does happen, of course. In most cases, that which “feels” like a Guide is merely the etheric presence of the Personality remaining attached to the relative or friend as a means to help comfort in both directions. That is part of the process of the 7th Internal Monad. The successful completion of the 7th Internal Monad is not merely in dying; it is in comprehending the extended impact on those who were attached to that Personality. [LisaC] Is there anything in particular that Michael would like to impart to us here now, other than the e-report? (kind of a just-for-fun question ;-) [M_Entity] No. Though we make ourselves available as a teacher and share in high interactivity, we never solicit or determine a topic or “impart” without your questioning to generate the exchange. We have a lot to share; we have a lot to teach, and all of the questions have not been asked, but we have nothing personally to impart. [Val] Healing: I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves & others, physical and spiritual (Buddha, Jesus etc) many say they heal in the name of religious figures can you comment on this, and on what would you recommend to us in order to succeed in healing ourselves and others: from Mike [M_Entity] “Religious Figures” give “permission” to a Fragment to use energy that is easily available already. That method helps a fragment “call on” the healing energy of the Higher Moving energy (Buddha) or Higher Emotional (Christ), both linked to the theme of the Logos taught through the Manifestations of the Infinite Soul in your example. Because most Fragments believe deeply that they are less-than, it makes sense to call upon a “higher power” for use of energy in healing. In truth, that energy, however accessed, will always be from the source of your own Essence. The greatest method of healing, in terms of channeling a specific energy, has been for Older Souls to think in terms of RESONATION, not “sending” energy to another. Creating a sustained resonance of healing gives the fragment focused upon an opportunity to align their own energy with that resonance. Those who are sensitive enough can sense in another where the energy is blocked or inhibited, can then generate a resonance for the ill one, and allow that Fragment to use it as needed. We remind you that not all illnesses and disease are necessarily interested in being “healed” by the common standards. There are beautiful experiences for a soul in many sicknesses and diseases. Knowing this, a form of healing can sometimes NOT be about alleviating the illness, but discussing and comprehending the impact of that illness. [sam-nemo] How can we attract guides, people or entities with similar goals to ours? [M_Entity] There are parts of the life in which the Personality manages, and parts in which Essence manages. “Attracting” Fragments, physical or nonphysical, is managed by Essence. Personality need only communicate to Essence if there is a particular interest determined. Communicating to Essence is as simple as thinking. If you choose to be clearer, set aside time before and/or after sleep to softly communicate to Essence what you seek. Essence has a limited “view” of the lifetime, and without the conscious input from Personality, the lifetime can be in agreement with or against the wishes of a Personality. When Personality is clear in what it wants, or seeks to attract, Essence is there. We will conclude here, then. Good night.
DanielaS posted a topic in 2003 Michael SpeaksAugust 24, 2003 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS (Online) – Month in Review [MichaelEntity] Hello to all of you. We are here. As you may recall, we spoke at the beginning of the month about the energy moving through the collective consciousness. The energy reports we offer through each channel is usually relative to the channel’s vicinity, and in most cases this means the United States, and sometimes more specifically the regional area of the channel. We clarify this again because it is important to maintain perspective of that an energy report for another country can be quite different. The energy of the past month was one of emphasis on CALM and reminders of Being Safe. This did not, however, mean that nothing of any significance would occur during that time to challenge you, but simply that the energy would be prevalent at that time for choosing Calm over Panic. We believe the behavior during the “Black Out” of the north eastern regions of the U.S. and bordering areas of Canada exemplified this. It is clear that your masses are well into Mature Soul functioning as a collective. Rather than our sifting through world events for examination, we believe it is more important for you to direct us through this examination. We will begin taking questions from the queue, beginning with Marion. [Liiona24] There is a lot on conflict in my personal world some is directly involving me and some I am just in its path. How is this related to the months energy, yes I was safe! Yet can this be better handled, at work, personal all over… [MichaelEntity] In your case, Marion, you have chosen/created a life with a path that crosses many people who are in conflict. The original intent, of course, was for the experiences of guiding, counseling, directing these fragments. Many of our most devoted students have chosen this kind of path in the life, but with that kind of path work comes the “ebb and flow” of synchronicity. In other words, there are times you will feel as if you have a strong grasp on the events of your life, and other times that you realize you are quite tired, physically and otherwise. For some of you, the experience of not having a crisis to handle, or a conflict to manage, is quite close to feeling as if you no longer have importance or meaning in your life. Older souls tend to create patterns of crisis and conflict for 4 reasons: Boredom: Essence knows that one of the only ways to truly “stay awake” within a life is to sustain challenging experiences Familiarity: Personality becomes so accustomed to handling these scenarios that the momentum seems too daunting to even try to alter Purpose: Conflict and Crisis are a means for defining a unique sense of self TRUST: Essence and Personality allow the life to be a magnet for crisis and conflict because there is an inherent trust in the process of life, however tiring and overwhelming it may seem. For older souls, it is inherent in their nature to trust the process of life, even if unconsciously. Experience has shown that, regardless of crisis and conflict, you will “survive”. With the energy of August offering a space for Calm and Safety, it is not surprising that some of you would then take that as a window of opportunity to handle some of your more challenging conflicts. As for how you can “handle it better”, we can only suggest that you remind yourself occasionally that you are not responsible for every other person’s sense of fulfillment or needs. When you have over-extended yourself, it is always best to explore why you are doing so. If it is based in Guilt, then we suggest reading our article about Guilt written through Troy. We remind you that Guilt is invalid and is a tool of the Chief Feature. How clever to show Guilt if you fall short of your over-extending of yourself. Guilt is sidestepping the issue of what needs to be addressed. In your case, you are still honoring outdated boundaries that do not coincide with your more evolved perceptions. We will discuss the more personal aspects of your question in a private forum. [suz] I ask about the personal boundaries we each have to deal with…some that I didn’t feel I took on… [MichaelEntity] Your question is unclear, Suz. If you would like to rephrase and specify the question, we will respond. [suz] During the gals road trip, boundaries and other issues came up…my personal que is how that relates in the Whole picture? [H2OSprtlvr] Isn’t having Conflict and Crisis in one’s lifetime a means to personal growth, that beyond being bored, having purpose and trust or familiarity that would create the crisis, wouldn’t one also choose this for the purpose of growth? [MichaelEntity] You are correct. In more specific terms, we would refer to the state of growth as FRICTION. There is no amount of growth that occurs without Friction. Conflict and Crisis are forms of Friction. Friction can also be the experience of Pleasure and Fulfillment, Success and Satisfaction. Our response to Marion described the varying reasons one might continue to seek the more difficult methods of Friction. [H2OSprtlvr] Thanks for that bit about friction being about some positive things, because with the Goal of Growth, I have been told I won’t grow unless I’m in conflict and I really avoid conflict if I can. [MichaelEntity] We do not endorse one version of Friction over another. You will each discover the areas of your life that need varying versions of Friction for growth. We merely state that growth is not exclusively painful. [H2OSprtlvr] Thank you. I needed to understand that. ? [CCVARNER46] My 6th mature warrior cast scholar husband and tc has marked self destruction as a cf this life. Why did he choose this cf and what lessons, other than safety, is he to learn by battling rather advanced lung cancer? just diagnosed this month… [MichaelEntity] We feel that the word “lesson” implies something that has been imposed upon a fragment, which is never the case. If we use the word “Lesson”, we would mean this in terms of what the fragment may be inclined to EXTRACT from an experience. This forum is too limited to go into such a sensitive, personal topic, but we can state that it appears the Personality chose Self-Destruction as a Chief Feature because at one point in his life an important, idolized figure was either prone to illness or died of a self-destructive illness. It was then decided that there was some kind of value or integrity in taking on that similar path. Chief Features are not chosen by desire or consciously, they are chosen through habitual responses to certain events. In his case, it appears he learned that it was more important to “handle life now, and let it catch up to you.” His diagnosis coming in a month of potential calm will go a long way in how this experience will be treated. We will respond more personally in an appropriate forum for such a topic. [flimflamdamn] Can you please shed some light on the current global political situation? It’s very volatile, and the US’ place in the world is very strange right now – it seems that the dishonesty in our government’s behavior and intentions are very obvious now, but are people noticing this dishonesty? How will events in Iraq and Afghanistan, and any other relevant places (including the USA), play out in the near to mid-term? The contrast between my personal feeling of safety and my sense of the world’s chaos and suffering is immense these days! [MichaelEntity] The world has always been in some kind of “chaos”, but until recent decades, one could only read or hear about them. You are now capable of being subjected to the vivid reality of that chaos. Nothing is new, however. There are simply more people and more media. There has always been dishonesty among the evolving nations, as well. The greatest difference now, beyond the growth of media and population is the evolution of Soul Ages. [flimflamdamn] the stakes feel so high now [MichaelEntity] Your sense is valid in that there is a culminating climax that will change your world forever. In one hundred years or so, we will more than likely be stating that “there was a time when the world was dishonest and chaotic”. As we have stated in the past, a Mature Soul world has no privacy. There are no more closed doors in a Mature world and people learn and adapt to the reality that they are being watched. The implementation of “reality tv” on such a large scale is the first superficial symptoms of this Mature Soul truth. Your sense about U.S. Governmental intentions being more obvious and undeniable is valid. In the same way that religions are “tripping over themselves with revelations”, so are most outdated institutions, laws, etc. Those groups of laws, politicians, governments, religions, organizations, etc. that are not capable of adapting to Mature Soul truths will definitely “fall”. The attacks on the middle-east are part of irony of this Mature Soul shift. What you are seeing in that situation is the actions of Baby and Young Souls being funneled through Mature Soul concepts. The Young and Baby CANNOT fathom the contexts and perceptions of the Old or Mature, but they are feeling the pressures of the shift. Since the Young are in positions of power, and the pressures to eliminate suffering and oppression are stronger than ever, the Young simply “blow up” the troubled areas. This seems like a reasonable solution to the Younger Soul. Imagine a child who plays video games and is frustrated with the progress of that game. Hitting “reset” is a valid solution to that child. The Young see the world in similar terms. In more direct answer to your questions: yes, it is no longer a question for most fragments in your world that the United States government does not have the “purest” intentions. As far as the near to “mid-term”, we cannot predict, but we can suggest probabilities. After the end of September, our perception of probabilities will be clearer. Currently your world is moving toward a major global pivotal Nexus near the end of September. This will clarify the probabilities from the “soup” of potential that has been created from the reactions and decisions of fragments over the past two years or so. We will talk more about these probabilities in our energy report next month. We must conclude here. We realize our time is limited in this forum. We must conclude here. We realize our time is limited in this forum. We would communicate with you 'all night' if possible, but we are dependent on our channels who are dependent on rest. Good night to all of you.
