    20140601 Ask Michael

    ASK Michael Live Chat June 1, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [ViP] Hi Michael, can you briefly describe the 7 circles of Conscience? [MEntity] For our response to be relevant, we ask if you are speaking in terms of "conscience" being that which is one's inner guide, or do you mean this in terms of awareness, or do you mean this in terms of consciousness? We know these terms are often used interchangeably. [ViP] You recently described "conscience" as being the sense of inner responsibility and compassion that had 7 Circles to it, so perhaps it would be in terms of the inner guide? I can provide the definition you gave if it would help [MEntity] We only wished for the clarification. We understand now. There may be other ways to describe the Circles of Conscience that are relevant to an individual, but we will offer these. Conscience is different from Consciousness and Awareness, but the merging of those three factors are vital for one's evolution, so they are often used interchangeably by the time one is an older soul. Conscience is that inner sense of guidance that one develops and learns to listen to as a means of navigating the life and for making choices. Conscience in its Positive Pole might be INTEGRITY while in the Negative Pole might be GUILT. The 7 Circles of Conscience, then, might be: SELF-NURTURING, SELF-PRESERVATION, SELF-SUFFICIENCY, SELF-DEFINING, SELF-ACCEPTANCE, SELF-ACTUALIZATION, and then SELF-MASTERY. Self-Nurturing Polarities would be CURIOSITY as the Positive Pole, and NEGLECT as the Negative Pole. Self-Preservation Polarities are VITALITY and DEFENSE, positive and negative, respectively. Self-Preservation would be VITALITY, and DEFENSE. Self-Sufficiency would be GENEROSITY, and PANIC. Self-Defining would be COMPASSION, and LOATHING. Self-Acceptance would be SOCIAL, and LONELINESS. Self-Actualizing would be EMPATHY and DENIAL. Self-Mastery would be RESPONSIBLE, and CONTROLLING. Many of our students often hover in the circles between Self-definition and Self-Mastery. We can elaborate upon this topic in a dedicated discussion. [Colleen] In 1937, Amelia Earhart disappeared. What became of her and what was her soul age, role, and overleaves? [MEntity] The fragment in question would be the Intellectually-Centered, Moving Part, 7th Level Young Scholar with the Goal of Flow that she would slide to Growth and Submission; an Idealist in Observation that slid to Passion, and a Chief Feature of Arrogance. This fragment appears to have encountered technical issues in-flight and was forced to crash-land near an island where she and her Task Companion lived out the rest of their days. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, like with the descriptions of the Server, Artisan and Warrior castings last Ask Michael, could you provide info on the Scholar-cast in those same formats? [MEntity] Scholar-Casting often shows up as heightened sensitivity, often felt in deep, emotional ways that "make no sense." This is often interpreted by the Scholar-cast as such a vulnerability that they often are the most secretive and "personal" with their exploration of the life. This Casting often gravitates toward anyone who can help them to "come out of themselves" in a way that is uninhibited and less self-conscious. This Casting often generates in the lifetime a love/hate, push/pull relationship with intimacy, at once desiring it greatly, but also convincing themselves that it is an unnecessary distraction. The Scholar-cast often struggles with his or her attention being fixated or fulfilled. In other words, when fixated, it is a means of escape, while when fulfilled, it is a product of exploration. These fragments can be of the most "kinky" of all. The Scholar-cast, more than even the Sage, or Sage-cast, can require feedback for insight into themselves, into the life, and the patterns of that life; they must "bounce" ideas off of others, see and hear these ideas played out in some way, so as to better navigate the library of thought that they carry. This can sometimes turn into a kind of paralysis if that sharing is not fulfilled in some way, locking them down with a sense of defeat for not having anyone to share those ideas and ideals with. We can always elaborate upon any of our terms, but for the sake of taking more questions today, we think this is a helpful start. [annay] Do we create more karma with people we end relationships with? Lets say if the other person is not happy with you ending the relationship ? Would you have to work it out in another life?? Even if you have forgiven the person yourself?? [MEntity] Anna, there is no categorical response that we can give to that question. The nature of Karma is so relative, that in one instance there may be Karma, while in another of the same circumstances, there is not. However, we can say that the ending of a relationship does not often generate a Ribbon only from the mere ending of the relationship, however difficult that may be for either party. Disappointment and grief are not inherently Karmic. If the one who ends the relationship has put the other party in some form of danger, or has significantly interfered with the capacity of the other party to choose, then a Ribbon can be generated. By "interfered" we mean that there is an active imposition on the capacity to choose. We are not speaking of the grief-stricken reactions that can impose restrictions of choice on the self. That is self-karmic, but not Karmic between the ones who have parted. If disappointment and grief were Karmic, we doubt we would ever return to Tao. [royce] Hello Michael , recently I asked about Objective Art vs Subjective art. I would like to take that into the realm of Modern storytelling. I don't feel there are a lot of examples of "Objective storytelling"; how might it differ in terms of approach than a lot of what we see in cinemas today? still lean heavily on suspense? horror? [MEntity] Before we reply, what do you mean by the additional end of your question? Are you asking if suspense and horror are ways to be Objective, or are you rhetorically suggesting that cinema leans heavily on suspense and horror? Please clarify. [royce] basically if a story was written with the intention of being objective art ( made with all of the centers) how might it look in comparison to a lot of stories out today which is more or less aimed to be emotional roller coasters. would objective art movies look almost entirely alien to us in how they would be approached? [MEntity] We understand and will respond. The effects of art are not often a fair representation of its origins. Objective and Subjective Arts can be interpreted and experienced in any number of ways relative to the interpreter. In fact, a great deal of Objective Art is "hated." It is not often received well. It is often threatening to the comforts and familiarities of the Personality. The same goes for genres. There can be Objective Horror and Subjective Horror. Objective and Subjective Art can only really describe the sources. However, there is validity to the fact that the source can have some effect, of course, but the individuals receiving/interpreting that art will always have the final say for how it is experienced. In terms of modern storytelling, a great shift is already in motion away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling. As we, as sentience, are now in the Century of Choice as a Platform for the species, CHOICE is becoming the vital key to a truly Objective method of storytelling. Modern gaming is already on the cutting edge of this, with Sages, Artisans, and Scholars flocking to its initial waves to help refine, expand upon, and spread its foundations. This move away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling is yet another expansion of impact from the shift in Soul Age away from Young to Mature. In that regard, it is an evolution, and represents Objective Art, as the source of that creativity must be inclusive, considering the broadest range of perceptions, paths, and probabilities as a means to fulfill the core of a story. We have never seen anything like it, and we find it beautiful. We often "sit in" with Troy as he plays. We are finding there is little difference between the architecture of gaming, and the process of incarnation, parallels, and probabilities. All higher concepts are eventually reflected in the Physical Plane in some way, and this dimension of existence is finding its footing. [Maureen] Michael, you said (to my sister): “Your higher Frequency and higher Female Energy allows you to endure much more than would someone with a lower Frequency, or Higher Male Energy. That endurance allows far more opportunities for healing that might not have been explored, otherwise.” Would you elaborate more on how endurance is experienced through the Higher/Lower Frequencies and Higher/Lower Male/Female Energy? [MEntity] Endurance can be a tool for any Frequency or Energy Ratio, but they would tend to show up differently. In Higher Frequencies, endurance is utilized by cycling through experiences of challenge so that no cycle through it is too deep or too much. That is not to say that a challenge might not feel or seem to be "too much, or too deep," but in the end it would not be. Higher Frequency fragments tend to work through experiences in layers, move on to other experiences, and other experiences, and then cycle back through. This helps bring about cycles of healing between cycles of challenge. Higher Creative/Female Energy helps one to emphasize problem-solving, intuitive navigation, and a trust in chaos, which leads one to having a greater endurance in terms of allowing challenges to be a part of the life. The pros of both of these can be that both allow room for healing. For the Lower Frequency fragments, there is still processing in layers, but it is from the inside/out of the experience, rather than from the outside/in. Higher Frequency fragments eventually get to the core, while Lower Frequency fragments start at the core. Because of this start at the core, there is little room for moving beyond the layers "above them" in that experience. They must find a way through all of those layers. Because of this dynamic, it can be difficult to access the healing that could be of benefit to that Lower Frequency. The Healing would tend to come in near the exit of the layers, if you will, and not often before that. That is not to say that healing is not available to the Lower Frequency when submerged in the core of an experience, but that they often do not allow for it. For the Higher Male fragments, the navigation of experiences can be one of a linear nature, structured, and intent, with a laser-like focus, which can also exclude anything distracting, such as healing. Again, it is not that healing is not available to the Higher Male/Focused Energy, but that it often must find its way into the path so as not to be a distraction. Does this help? [Maureen] Yes it does [MEntity] We must conclude here for today. Good evening to everyone.
  2. OMW - Sep 4, 2010 - Your Turning Points Troy Tolley, Channel (Note: Two things stand out about this transcript: 1) it triggered huge responses from the participants; so, the questions aren't as well organized or integrated as some other transcripts -- I left it "as is" in order to keep the emotional tone; 2) this topic really integrates well with the more recent "Doing versus Being" workshop held in January, 2011. glb) MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We have been asked today to speak about what Troy describes as a "Turning Point" that each fragment may, or may not, have within a lifetime. We will first define "Turning Point" as "the unequivocal, historical comprehension that a correction of course on a Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and/or Spiritual Path is necessary and possible as a result of a particular, pivotal experience or choice." We will further define "correction of course" as meaning "a direction of active preference of path that includes improved health for one or more of the bodies, as opposed to a passive presumption of a path that is not nurturing for one or more of the bodies." A "Turning Point" usually shows up within a life when the original intention for the life is being cut short by the death of one or more of the bodies. And by "bodies," we do mean the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual Bodies, or more accurately, "layers" of the Body. When one of these bodies nears death, and the original intention did not include that death or exit point, then a Turning Point is generated so as to give the entirety of the Body (all layers/bodies) a chance to recover and correct the course of the life. Usually that correction of course is drastic because it is in contrast to the momentum that was leading to death. Each "layer" or Body can experience death, even as the other layers continue beyond that death of one body. For instance, a fragment can experience the death of his or her Emotional Body while continuing Physically, Intellectually, Spiritually. Even when the Physical Body dies, one can continue to "live" through the Emotional, Intellectual, and Spiritual bodies, and this is most-often reported as a "haunting," of course. Regardless of their lack of tangibility, these bodies are ALL of the Physical Plane in terms of material as a medium for Essence. These materials are not yet understood entirely, but may best be understood by you as various densities, or frequencies, that make up the entirety of The Body. Your Body is made up of these densities, or frequencies, from densest to finest: Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual, and these are "encased," so to speak, in the matrix that might be called the Etheric Body, which acts as a generator, bridge, and template. Each of these are subject to the scathing that is inherent of the Physical Plane, and thus can be harmed, injured, or die. However, as long as the Etheric Body/casing is intact, not only is the presence in the Physical Plane still intact, but so is the Personality, as the Personality is biological, or more accurately, it is a part of the Bodies. As we said before: a "turning point" is a potential result that comes from the near-death, or death, of one or more of the Bodies. [Geraldine] Please describe what the physical body looks like if any of the other three bodies die. MEntity: Therefore how to prevent a Turning Point becomes increasingly interesting to Essence as it grows older, since keeping all of the Bodies healthy also becomes increasingly interesting to the soul. One of the ways to prevent a Turning Point, ironically, is to CREATE a Turning Point. More accurately said, it is how to create one Consciously, as most Turning Points are created unconsciously. [Deb22] Is this not what I did — created a turning point — by taking that recent, extended trip to SE Asia. To the unknown, to being alive because my bodies — the emotional, intellectual and spiritual were nearing death? MEntity: Deb, we would agree. The difference between creating a Turning Point consciously vs unconsciously is profound in terms of catalysts, but equally as profound in terms of impact. It could be said, then, that the Positive Pole of a Turning Point is Transmutation and the Negative Pole is Desperation. One end is fueled by Choice whereas the other end is fueled by Survival. One end is created from conscious recognition whereas the other end is created from unconscious realization. For instance, they are the difference between stating, "something has GOT to change" vs "Oh my god, I almost died." [Deb22] What is hard is the next step. I have the momentum but it is of a different texture — stillness versus movement. It is exciting but scary. Any suggestions.? My turning point felt conscious — was it? MEntity: If you are interested in this workshop with us, you have probably stated at some point: "something has got to change." Or you have experienced a Turning Point already, and just want to understand that process. We will make time for personal questions in a more organized exchange coming up. As we mentioned before: a Turning Point comes from the near-death, or death, of one or more of the Bodies. When there is a death of the body, or layer, as long as there is a denser body alive, then the finer body can be "brought back to life." In other words, as long as the Physical Body is intact, then any "death" of any other body can be revived, revitalized. We will define "death" here as "having no active, functioning presence." There are, literally, those whose Emotional Bodies are dead in that regard. As are there some whose Intellectual or Spiritual Bodies are dead. It is not inaccurate then to say that a Turning Point is a Resurrection. Within context, there is validity to the concept of being "born again." Each Soul Age tends toward certain bodies having more trouble surviving the life than other bodies. [Karine] When resurrected, does the body that died come back exactly the same as it was, or is it different than it used to be? MEntity: Karine, it is transmutated. It is always in a higher form if it is resurrected; if the Turning Point is utilized. The Infant Souls tend to have trouble keeping any of the Bodies alive. Baby Souls have the hardest time keeping the Spiritual Body alive. Young Souls have the hardest time keeping the Intellectual Bodies alive. Mature Souls have the hardest time keeping the Emotional Bodies alive. And Old Souls have the hardest time keeping the Physical Bodies alive. Keep in mind that "alive" and "death" here are not entirely literal. For instance, the Older Soul has a hard time keeping the Physical Body "alive" in the sense that we already defined: "having no active, functioning presence." Older Souls are most-prone to hiding away their Physical Bodies from the world, in other words. They have evolved to such a state of spirituality, of spiritual strength, that the emphasis of life tends to move away from Physical presence, and it takes a lot more effort to be alive as a Physical Being. Being "alive", as in, "having active, functioning presence." This helps explain a great deal about much of the turmoil and terror that can often plague the Old Soul. It also helps explain the distractions and overcompensations of the younger Soul Ages. For instance, as the Baby Soul has the hardest time keeping the Spiritual Bodies alive, they tend to have the most resurrections of the Spiritual Body, or an emphasis on being "born again" on that level. The Older Soul often requires this same kind of profound turning point, but on a Physical Level. Therefore, many Older Souls will have their Turning Point generated when in the face of Physical Death. Though it would be difficult to validate, we can say that Older Souls tend to have the "close calls" with physical death more often, proportionally, than other soul ages for that reason. Ironically, they are also more likely to create a Turning Point unconsciously than the other Soul Ages, with Baby Souls being most-prone to creating Turning Points from a conscious intention than other Soul Ages. Before we move further into this topic, and into more personal territory, we now invite you to ask questions about the topic in general, or to comment on your sense of validity about what we have shared so far. [Maureen] Based on this discussion: How does "Energetic Healing" take place/work and what can be done to strengthen it's effect on all the "Bodies/Layers?" [Geraldine] What can cause the "death" of one of the intangible bodies? [Martha] Can you tell if another person has a "dead" body? [Maureen] Lights are on and no ones' home! MEntity: In response to Maureen: Most "Energetic Healing" is fairly useless without the implementation of a counterpart that might be called an "anchor" for a circuit to be fulfilled for that level of healing. [Karine] are the bodies related to the Centers? MEntity: For instance, Physical Healing, which is the most obvious form of healing, has a medium that is tangible in such forms as medicine, bandaging, and active monitoring of the wound. [Deb22] Can you please amplify the response to Maureen's question? What would be a counterpart, an anchor? MEntity: "Energetic" Healing most-often refers to more intangible techniques for providing an exchange of energy for the intent of healing various levels of the Body. However, regardless of the finer body, or the lack of tangibility for the healing, there still needs to be an "anchor," or a counterpart that helps to generate a circuit between healer and healed. [Maureen] What do you mean by anchor - counterpart? MEntity: For instance, the "laying on of hands" or the use of touch, in general, is powerful as an anchor, or counterpart, to many "energetic" healing techniques. [Maureen] From your perspective, what actually takes place with an energetic healing? [Deb22] What about a geometric grid with the elements, the bodies, the directions-- creating a mandala implementing those forms? MEntity: Other examples might be: good conversation as a counterpart to Intellectual Healing; affection as a counterpart to Emotional Healing; the use of symbols, either imaginary or tactile, are quite powerful. For example: if one were to use "at-a-distance" healing as a means to help someone, it would help for that recipient to have a symbol for help in completing that circuit. This could be assigned by the healer for the recipient to visualize or duplicate, or chosen by the recipient for the healer to focus upon. A person carrying a stone that is the anchor for healing energy from a healer is much more likely to receive and benefit from healing than someone who was simply told that the healer would "send" some healing energy. [Martha] whats an anchor for Spiritual healing? [Maureen] With "Hands on Healing" - what can be done to strengthen its effect so it lasts longer? Or has a permanent effect? MEntity: In response to GERALDINE: the death of the Emotional Body can come from emotional overwhelm, self-loathing, abandonment, emotional abuse, etc.; the death of the Intellectual Body can come from Intellectual overwhelm, extreme loss, unprocessed grief, excessive disappointment, philosophical abuse or mindfucking, etc.; the death of the Spiritual Body can come from overwhelming demands of life, lack of capacity to comprehend beyond your own needs and wants, extreme displacement of identity for the sake of compromise and order, etc. [Geraldine] a-ha -- all of those negative poles pile up [Maureen] The North Koreans must suffer from all these the death of the Physical Body, besides the obvious literal death, would come from extreme rejection of physical life, repulsion for the functions of the physical body, terror in realizing the fragility of the body, profound desperation to feel safe, profound misunderstanding that the vastness of the universe equates an insignificance of the self, etc. MEntity: In response to MARTHA: it is often difficult to determine if one of the bodies is dead, but if one is sensitive enough, one can often feel that sense of "emptiness" in a person on the relevant level of Body. [Deb22] What is the interrelationship between the 9 needs and the death of the bodies? MEntity: Some symptoms of each body's death might be: Spiritual Death - addiction, capacity to murder, willingness to enslave or oppress; Intellectual Death - lack of ethics, profound disregard for boundaries, profound lack of concern for the Effects of one's Cause. Emotional Death - extreme depression, apathy, paralysis of isolation (feeling trapped/alone when not trapped/alone) Physical Death - squalor, poor hygiene, extreme wishful thinking (extreme entitlement) In response to KARINE: yes, these Bodies are related to the Centers indirectly, as the Centers are related to the Chakras. Though our channels and students often presume that the Centers are synonymous with the Chakras, we do not use the term Centers to represent Chakras. Therefore, these Bodies are directly related to the Chakras, but indirectly related to the Centers. We use the term "Center" to describe a Personality's "Center of Gravity," and while this can be seen as an extension of the Chakra, it is not about the Chakra, itself. [Maureen] What part does Auric Hygiene play in "warding off" the death of a "Body"? MEntity: So, for instance, a Personality may be Emotionally Centered, but his Emotional Body is "Dead." This would mean that the fragment still navigates life based on attraction and repulsion relative to Inspiration (emotion), but has closed down any vitality to his Emotional Body, hence having "closed down" his Heart Chakra. [Deb22] What is the interrelationship between the 9 needs and the death of the bodies? MEntity: In other words, his other bodies may still move through life in relation to what is or isn't inspiring, but his Emotional Body has cut off contact with his Essence. In response to DEB, we did elaborate on the Anchor/Counterpart, and can do so further if that was not enough. [Karine] so a body's death is basically the rejecting of essence? [Deb22] I was referring to our primary needs: Freedom, Adventure, Exchange, Expression, etc. and was asking for the correlation [Martha] that's a big question Deb [Deb22] I realize that but I think it is most relevant to our discussion MEntity: We are responding to the questions as we see them in order above. We suggest a halt on the questioning now until we have responded to each that has already been posted. [Geraldine] I don't think Needs applies to this -- we'll never get to issues about how to do up a Turning Point consciously at this rate MEntity: We explained what a "counterpart" and anchor is in relation to energetic healing, but the short answer would that a counterpart or anchor is a specific symbol or tangible object that acts as a medium for the energy that is being transmitted for healing purposes. Those symbols and objects are completely subject to the creativity and sense of personal relevance between the healer and healed, and are not specific to the different bodies. We are now to Maureen's question of "what actually takes place during energetic healing?" Whether Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual, any healing is a corrective frequency relative to that body. More specifically, it is a return to order from chaos, or alignment from disarray. When we say that it is a return to order from chaos, we say that in terms of relativity. What may be order, or beauty, to one person's body is chaos to another's. [Martha] Can we hold more questions until we hear about how to consciously create a TP? we're going to run out of time MEntity: For example, what an Older Soul sees in a Baby Soul's being "born again" is "ugly" compared to the beauty the Baby Soul actually experiences in that healing. [Deb22] Suggestion: Why can't we continue this topic next month? It is clear, it is massive. MEntity: Keeping this in mind can help when one acts as a healer, either professionally or as a friend. Healing is something that must be determined by the recipient, not the sender. (We can respond to the remaining questions above, and still cover the "how to" part of our discussion, if everyone has approximately 30 minutes remaining to participate.) [Maureen] OK [Martha] ok [Geraldine] ok [Karine] alright [Deb22] ok MEntity: In response to Deb regarding Mandalas: yes, this would be included in our explanation that symbols are counterparts/anchors for healing. In response to Maureen about hand-on healing and length of effect: We would have to say that it is often wise to consider healing as a matter of "treatment," rather than as a form of miracle. This means that, in most cases, healing is a process, not a product. Each recipient would require different different numbers of sessions, and different degrees of focus for the healing. This is something that would be determined based upon the needs of the individual. In response to Deb regarding the 9 Needs: to the degree that one's Needs are met is a fairly accurate degree to which the bodies are healthy. The less one satisfies his Needs, the more one will degenerate in relation to that Need, depending on how one has prioritized that need and its necessity to satisfy. Though the different Needs could correlate to the different Bodies, it is more accurate to say that for EACH Body the 9 Needs MUST BE SATISFIED to some degree for that Body to be healthy. So, for instance, the Emotional Body will have its Tier of 3 Primary Needs to satisfy, but will still need all 9 to be healthy. In response to Karine about the body's death being a rejection of Essence: No, the Physical Body's death is not always about the "rejection" of Essence, but it is always a result of Essence withdrawing or being blocked from the Body. Death or the Turning Point of any Body is motivated by either Transmutation or Desperation. Therefore, when the Physical Body dies, it can be from the positive morphing into another step of its evolution, or from desperation that might lead to something like suicide. Of course, we can elaborate upon all of our responses as necessary, but we will now speak about the "how to" part of our exchange with you. If any of you can look at any part of your life as represented by the Bodies (Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Spiritual) and have found yourselves stating that "something has GOT to change," then you may be in need of a Turning Point. If you are in need of a Turning Point, then it will either happen as a result of Desperation as that particular level of life, or Body, is threatened or dies, or you can choose to generate that Turning Point on your own, and on your own terms. The reason most fragments rely on Desperation to generate a Turning Point is because it is "easier" in that it feels as if it is something that happens TO you, rather than FROM you. And therein lies the difference: consciously choosing/creating a Turning Point means that is must come FROM you, not TO you. One does NOT need to be near death, or dead, in that Body in order to generate a Turning Point. When one is consciously creating a Turning Point, it is not dependent on which Body is near death, but can be based upon your Overleaves and the inherent strength and weaknesses of your own design. When a Turning Point is generated, either consciously or unconsciously, it is a profound redirection of DOING, BEING, HAVING, or KNOWING. These correlate to the Axes of the Overleaves. DOING=Action BEING=Inspiration HAVING=Expression KNOWING=Assimilation If one might choose to consciously create a Turning Point, then one might look at his or her Overleaves and see which Axis is lacking the most emphasis. This would be your first clue or step in generating your Turning Point. For instance, if one is not a King or Warrior, and does not have Submission/Dominance, Perseverance, Aggression, Cynic, Realist, Moving Centering, or a Mars/Venus Body Type, then it might mean that you would most benefit from DOING SOMETHING PROFOUNDLY DIFFERENT. If you are lacking in the Inspiration Overleaves, it might mean that you would benefit most from starting to BE SOMETHING PROFOUNDLY DIFFERENT. Lack of Expression Overleaves might mean it would benefit you to HAVE SOMETHING PROFOUNDLY DIFFERENT. Lack of Assimilation might mean KNOWING SOMETHING PROFOUNDLY DIFFERENT. DOING something different is probably the most obvious in terms of what one can do to generate a Turning Point. BEING something different would mean profoundly changing the dynamics of your behavior to reflect what it is that inspires you. BE THAT. HAVING something different would mean profoundly changing what it is that you take/receive from the world around you. KNOWING something different would mean profoundly changing how you interpret your experiences. Of course, no Turning Point can be completed without ALL of those being addressed: Doing, Being, Having, and Knowing. But your Overleaves can help you to see where you might need to start, first. The fact may be that your true Turning Point would come when you reach the KNOWING part of the equation, even if you start with the DOING part. So keep this in mind when you begin your steps. Based on what we have just shared, do each of you understand your Overleaves enough to see what might be your own first step in a Turning Point, if you chose to consciously create one? [LisaC] yes; mine would be Doing [Martha] I think so (Seeing as how I have almost NO action emphasis) [Karine] mine would be doing, too MEntity: And the rest of you? [Geraldine] I think everything hinges on "how I interpret" things [Maureen] I have a mix [Karine] Should one also take a look at what overleaves they are sliding to? (if some of them are on the neutral axis) MEntity: Karine, no, the primary Overleaf should be the primary means for determining this, but we can say that the "sliding" can help to show what area might be a next step in the process. [Karine] ok [Deb22] I did what I always do, DO, but now that I have done; I am BEING. Where am I in my bodies' resurrections? [Geraldine] I'm a little curious how one would DO before one KNOWS? [Martha] I know I need to do something different, but I don't know what it is [Maureen] I walked on "Fire" before I knew MEntity: As we said, all parts of the process will have to be addressed for a complete Turning Point, but a first step is always necessary. In the case where DOING may be addressed before KNOWING, it would mean that it is obvious that certain actions are generating certain results, which would either mean DOING something else more specific to the desired results, or the halting of the Doing that is causing the undesirable results. The reason this might work better for those lacking Action Overleaves is because those Personalities rarely "Know" something (as in, being able to interpret things differently) until they DO something that breaks a pattern. It is not necessary for one to "know" what to do differently, but to DO something profoundly different is the key. This may be as obvious as doing the opposite of what you would normally do, or just doing something "different" for a change, as in taking a random trip, or breaking out in dance in the moment. Keep in mind that for each of these, they are a spectrum: Doing/Not Doing; Being/Not Being; etc. Sometimes the profundity is in the NOT. One way to keep yourself "on your toes" regarding your starting point of Transformation is to mark your more familiar moment with "Maybe I'm Wrong." For instance, "I have to do it this way because my situation demands that I do it this way." "But maybe I'm wrong about that." "I know it means this because it's obvious that it means this." "But maybe I'm wrong about that." "I want this and need this because I've earned it and deserve it!" "But maybe I'm wrong about that." "I am a big loser." "But maybe I'm wrong about that." If you find that you are frustrated with your direction on any level, it will truly help you to consider that you may be wrong. Suggesting this to yourself can help you to spark your creativity in finding other solutions and directions. Keep in mind that a consciously-created Turning Point is a slower process and one that requires your active participation. Putting a coin of effort into the slot of Doing will not immediately generate a jackpot of success from Being, Having, and Knowing. Your sequence of steps is just a suggestion, and we have already pointed out where to start, but where you will end is often suggested by the Axis where your Overleaves are most concentrated. [Martha] I have been very frustrated lately, wanting to DO something but not knowing what — this should help MEntity: A final thought for you consider is that the force that will keep each step flowing into the next, and generating results that will lead to Transmutation, is FOLLOW-THROUGH. [Geraldine] damn -- but what if I have a CF of procrastination? [Martha] (you're gonna knock Troy out of trance) [Geraldine] (just trying to make Michael laugh) MEntity: There is no Chief Feature of Procrastination, but the humor is not lost on us: we would suggest in response to this that if one is plagued by Procrastination, then one actively create a structure or relationship of Accountability. Accountability is the only solution for Procrastination. With all of this background information, and insight into your Overleaves as a tool for change, we think each of you can set in motion your own Turning Point, if you choose to do so. [Karine] how long does it take to create a successful Turning Point? a few months/years? does it depend on the situation? [Deb22] My bodies — the emotional, the spiritual, the intellectual are experiencing profound changes since my trip to SE Asia. I have the momentum but it is of a different texture. Exciting, but scary. Stillness versus movement. Any suggestions that can help? MEntity: We will respond to these final two questions, but must conclude after that. Karine, the length of time it takes is always relative to the effort, and the magnitude of redirection that is sought. If one wants to take better care of her body so that it moves into a natural state of health, then that can take effect almost immediately; but if one would like to redirect from a career of law enforcement to a career in ballet, it might take more time and commitment. Deb, our best response to your question is to suggest that you now LISTEN TO YOURSELF. That is key in your sustaining your momentum. Listen. And, of course, Follow Through. We must conclude here. If further, more intimate discussion is required, we suggest arranging a follow up discussion/chat within the month that may help. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  3. October 2, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [NOTE FROM TROY: In response to the first question, as a channel, a short-circuit of sorts occurred and Michael began expounding in great detail about the variations and definitions of “cadence,” rather than directly answering the posed question. This transcript reflects the edited, direct answer.] [M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin with your questions, if you have any. [kittlekats41] I would like to know if fragments who are in the same entity and share all of the same casting information except are on three different ‘sides’ have any special connection or relationship, and how that might manifest? [M Entity] There are variations of visualizations for how an entity may be “constructed,” and while the tubular pyramid is popular so as to provide the illusion of “sides,” the sphere is more accurate. We mention this because the connections among fragments within an entity happen in many “directions,” most often creating a star-like pattern radiating out from that position. [kittlekats41] radiating like a Moravian type star? [M Entity] The “Moravian star” image is valid, though if one were to actually “see” the connections among fragments within an entity, the “star-like” image might seem more like a synapsis, or spark; much like what is depicted in animations describing the process of the brain “thinking.” The triangular tube is helpful in one form of visualization, so we will offer another simplistic visual for the sake of answering your question. Providing Entity Structure visuals is quite complicated to convey without actual visuals, but for the sake of answering you within this forum, we will remain with the triangular tube. A “classic” entity will then have 3 groups of 343 (hence, the triangular “sides” often portrayed by our channels; 3 sides of 343). It could then be said that PROPORTIONALLY speaking, the positions within one group of 343 is “connected” to each of the “same” positions within each group/side of 343. [kittlekats41] that is the basis of my question, yes [M Entity] The bonding factor among those sharing “casting” is based on the shared emphasis of that casting position. A fragment who is within a Server Greater Cadence (ONE), Sage Cadence (Column FIVE), Scholar Position (FOUR) on one “side” will share the emphasis of those three coordinates with the fragments on the other two “sides.” Each fragment within that tri-bond would exemplify one facet of manifestation of the same qualities/influences described by the specific coordinate points. In other words, one fragment would exemplify the TRUTH/Expression aspect, another would exemplify the LOVE/Inspiration, and the other would exemplify the ENERGY (beauty)/Action aspect. The “tri-bond” could be described as the most karmic bond one shares within one’s entity. Entities grow and morph through experiences based on the tri-bonds among these shared coordinates throughout the entity more than any other. It should be noted that an entire element of our teaching has not been accessed, though it is from your question that it will come forth. [faldec] I recently wrote a paper for an English class. In it I was discussing racism in America, a subject I particularly dislike. It occurred to me writing the paper that it is all related to choice and that many people would choose the relatively “easier” path of sticking with other fragments that are at least superficially the same then to build relationships with those who are different. Again, all being chosen. What is your view on this? [M Entity] We believe that much of what passes as “racism” is merely “prejudice” and cannot be compared. Racism is far less of an issue within your world than your world wishes to make it. Racism has come to include every misunderstanding and misstep, along with the legitimate instances of hate-based rejection and harm. We use the words “rejection” and “misunderstanding” for convenience of language. True rejection and misunderstanding do not exist. In response to your question: Race divisions based on familiarity are nothing more than remnants of tribal mindsets that were once quite valid. In a world that is moving into Mature Soul consciousness, “tribe” that is based on anything superficial is strongly offensive. Fragments do not gravitate toward, and remain within, their race simply because it is “easier,” but because of cultural and societal influences and pressures. In your Mature Soul world, it is becoming more and more difficult to have loyalty toward your own Race, Culture, or local society. One is seen as ignorant, rejecting, or lazy, if one chooses that stance. One “must” be multicultural, racially-diverse, and capable of maneuvering within any foreign society. While this is a natural evolution toward Mature Soul consciousness, your world still exists within a Young Soul Paradigm, so the maturity is not quite there for that pressure to be processed. In response to that pressure, then, and regardless of soul age, many will simply revert to the superficial definitions of “tribe,” no matter how capable one is to expand beyond that in a meaningful way. This leaves many fragments with the mental and emotional levels of diversity sustained, but not the physical diversity. This creates a lack of physical evidence that diversity is, in fact, seeding among your species and that becomes a focal point for a grand scale of karma shared among the races based upon your own ancient history as a sentient race. In other words: while racism dies down tremendously, and while the mental and emotional capabilities of individuals rise toward diversity and multicultural comprehension, the physical expression of this is still locked in “familiarity patterns.” This familiarity acts as a sanctuary for the process of adjusting to redefinitions of “tribe,” leaving many to believe that a true division exists, when it does not. Our view, then, is not that the divisions are based on how “easy” the choice of division might be, but that these divisions are in place because transformation happens quite often from the inside, out; not by merely eliminating superficial symptoms. In fact, what is happening in your world is a True Healing. You are simply not aware of what healing looks like, or what the process is, because your systems of healing are based on alleviating symptoms as quickly as possible; not actual healing. Many fragments have been tricked, or have tricked themselves, into battling the symptoms. Some of you may sense this, finding repugnance with the current superficialities of “political correctness” over genuine healing. [BradburySE] I want to ask about the recent hurricane disasters in the United States. I think the rebuilding will enable the new Mature Soul age and is meant to, but some wisdom would say that weather cataclysm is the result of human discord and upset. Can this country be so upset as to cause two huge hurricanes…? And what is your “take” on the idea that people cause weather disturbance? [M Entity] Weather is directly related to the consciousness of the sentience it most affects. There are varying factors and levels involved with how this works, but it is valid. Hurricane Katrina has been “waiting to happen” for some time, so to speak, as the “weather” of consciousness has been emphasizing a great demand for a complete overhaul of your country's infrastructure. It did not “have” to be a hurricane; in fact, other attempts have been made to manifest this demand, such as the “blackout” in the North Eastern United States. Ironically, the most potentially devastating disasters to manifest did so in the most willing places where more mature consciousness is sustained; the irony is in that this maturity managed to adapt quite quickly to the impact, losing the overall effect to change infrastructure. Having the disaster manifest in the “heart” of Young Soul territory began to make more sense. This DOES NOT mean the Hurricane was “sent there;” nor does it mean that area “deserved it.” [faldec] simply where it would make the biggest impact? M Entity: That particular area of the United States owns the oldest “open wound” within your culture and this hurricane has brought that wound to the surface for healing from even the most remote old soul. This hurricane was the manifestation of energy that has accumulated since the second election of the man called George Bush, Jr. We will note, here, that a great many of the fragments directly in the path of this hurricane were desperately longing for “new starts” and “an answer.” Beyond those who chose to exit at that point, and beyond those who will grieve them, the transformation of the physical lives of those involved will be a profound empowering process; particularly for the children. This is also the first disaster that has ever placed non-human species in the public eye as having no less validity than that of Human. As we said: your world IS healing. This is part of it. [Carrot Wax 1] The hurricane, as well, has murmurs of potential disease in the news a lot recently. I recall hearing some channeled information that there will be an “exit strategy” for many souls. What is Michael's take on this? Along with possible timelines? [this also relates to the overpopulation of the planet] [M Entity] We see the potential for widespread disease to be minimal at 22%, currently. However, the likelihood of massive disasters affecting the United States has probabilities of 78% within the next 2 years. Many more will choose those disasters as exit points, rather than through disease, as far as we can perceive. Disasters are a popular Mature Soul method of dying. Weather-related disasters within the next 2 years are at 62%, while “Other” would be at 38%. The United States' next election looks to be a catalyst for more difficult weather, consciously and otherwise. [Carrot Wax 1]: is there a current “plan” to deal with planet overpopulation? [M Entity] The planet's population will continue to fall. Its numbers will be more obviously declining over the next 25 years as more exit than are born; even more obvious over the next 50 years. The previous statement is based on a probability of 89%, though, of course, anything can change that pattern in an instant. [upstaate] why would mature souls want to die off if their “time’ is coming as a favored living arrangement? [M Entity] If one observes the recent patterns of death on large scale, many are elderly, poor, or disabled. Although there are many who are “healthy” who may die, there are as many “reasons” for death as there are deaths, of course. Many who are elderly, sick, in poverty, and/or disabled are kept alive or nurtured beyond their will to live because of the Young Soul Paradigm that inherently teaches the terror and fear of death. Many Mature Souls are “not afraid” of death and are quite relieved to move on and create new lives. We will conclude here. Good night to each of you.
  4. Michael Speaks: Healing and Healers May 8, 2011 Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here now. We can begin on the subject of Healing & Healers. We will, first, define "Healing" and "Healers." We will define Healing as "a return to, extraction of, or an imposition of Order from Chaos" and Healer as "that which, or those whom, facilitate the return to, extraction of, or imposition of Order from Chaos." Wounding, however it manifests, is Chaos, or at least seeming Chaos. There are really only 7 ways in which a Body can die, or be wounded. These 7 ways can overlap, and some may be able to refine these to a greater degree than we have through this channel, but those 7 Basic Ways of Wounding/Dying would be: Illness, Poisoning, Impact, Impaling, Suffocation, Starvation/Dehydration, and Natural/Shutdown. Each of these can bring wounding or death, and can be brought to any Body, including the Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and "Spiritual" Bodies. Some of the terms would not be so literal in terms of the less-tangible Bodies, but are relevant terms. Death and Wounding are parts of the experience of the Higher Moving Center, which is the spectrum between Chaos and Beauty. Beauty is simply the recognition of patterns versus the lack of recognition of patterns that is Chaos. We use the term "recognition" because often the difference between Chaos and Beauty is a matter of recognition, or perception, and is a relative state. There are those who "suffer" wounding in ways that "should" bring about a great deal of Chaos, but those individuals return to, extract from, or impose a new order from the chaos in a way that is HEALING. There are those who have "no reason" to suffer and have lost all recognition of order, or beauty, in the life, and these individuals can truly be wounded. And so it is that the differences between Wounding and Healing are as "simple" as the differences between Chaos and Beauty. And so it is that the difference between Wounding and Death are the differences between Chaos and Beauty, as well. Wounding is Chaos. Death is Order/Beauty. Every Personality and Lifetime will explore the spectrum between Order and Chaos, but will always end in Order as a means for Review in the afterlife, and Death is that process of returning everything back to Order, or Beauty. Order can also be returned within the life through HEALING, and since not everyone wants to die as a means to regain Order, there is a necessity for HEALERS. This necessity is vital enough that it is one of the 12 Primary Support Positions within any Circle of Support. This means that every single fragment has at least one Healer accessible at all times in every incarnation and beyond. This may seem a rather sweeping generalization as there are many who suffer without apparent access to healing, but this apparent lack of access is a result of complications that are often unnecessary and are products of choice. A society can become rather powerful in imprinting various individuals to only accept the standardized methods and providers of Healing, which may or may not have helped. The Healing that a fragment may require is not always as obvious as his or her wounding. But the Healer and Healing that a fragment most-requires is ALWAYS accessible in some way. The first key in accessing that is through the realization of the fact that no Healer or Healing can actually HEAL; they can only facillitate Healing and Healing Methods. The only one who can ever truly heal you, is you. The individual can always override a Healer and Healing. However, the necessity for Healers is because often the first step to True Healing is in the ASKING FOR HELP. Wounding, or the plunge into Chaos within a lifetime, is a vital part of the experience of living because it is one of the few states or experiences that can be explored that provokes the Universal Truth of Oneness, or in simpler terms, the fact that you are not alone. Ever. Even if the Wounding leads to Death, or if someone's asking for help is still met with Death, the profound validity of that Oneness and the necessity for reaching out, is often registered in ways that are never lost by Essence. The 7 Ways to Die, or 7 Methods of Wounding, correspond to the Axes in ways that can often shed light for Healing and for Healers. Illness and Poisoning are Inspirational-based Woundings/Deaths. Impaling/Impact are Action-based Wounding/Deaths. Suffocation/Starvation are Expression-based Woundings/Deaths; and Shutting Down/Natural methods are Assimilative. Some of these are obvious, and some may not be so clear, and while we offer up these correlations, we will not say that they are rules or static associations. For example, we can say that MOST Illnesses or intaking of Poisons are MOSTLY related to issues of Self-Esteem, which are extensions of the Chief Features of Self-deprecation and Arrogance. This kind of statement can be explored in a multitude of ways. The immune system is directly connected to Self-Esteem, and so it goes that any fluctuation in Self-Esteem is a fluctuation in Immunity. Self-deprecation is almost always at the core of Illness. The toxins that one takes in without question or concern through his or her eating of poor diet, might be an example of Arrogance at the core of slow Poisoning of the body. And so on... There are only 4 ways through which any of these 7 Methods of Wounding/Death can be implemented: Suicide, Homicide, Accident, and Natural, each corresponding to an Axis; Inspirational, Action, Expression, and Assimilative, respectively. Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers. And there are only ever 3 methods of Healing: through Truth, Love, or Energy. Facilitating Order within the Chaos of the Truth, Love, or Energy of an individual. This means that Healers range far beyond those who actively practice Healing, or those who specifically work with the various Bodies. In fact, every single one of you are Healers in at least one other Fragment's Circle of Support in every life. If this were not so, then Healers and Healing would not be so accessible to every fragment. One does not have to identify with being a "healer" to be a Healer. If you help to bring Order to someone's Chaos, you are a Healer. If you help someone to experience, comprehend, see, feel, or hear the Beauty that is inherent in any part of his or her life, you are a Healer. Anyone who can help others to bring Order to the Truth, Love, or Energy in someone's life, is a Healer. Whether this is done actively and consciously, or passively and unconsciously, does not matter. And so it is that each of you will always be in a position to HEAL YOUR OWN LIFE, which by definition simply means to bring Beauty to the Chaos of it, whether this be in Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, or Spiritual form. Bringing Beauty or Order to any part of your life helps to bring that Healing into every Body you are. Often, for instance, the Chaos that is in your Physical Body can only be masked by the treatments offered for the symptoms that this Body exhibits, but the True Healing would come from the Beauty/Order that is brought to your Emotional Body/Life. Much of what passes for Healing is only Treatment. Treatment is necessary, and is not a "bad thing," but it is not Healing. Understanding the various correlations above, and the 3 methods of Healing as they correlate to Wounding, can also shed light on the requirements for True Healing. For instance, those who are Wounded by Illness or Posioning usually require True Love for True Healing. Those who are wounded by Impaling or Impact often require True Order for True Healing; those who are wounded by Suffocation/Starvation often require The Truth for for True Healing. Keep in mind that there is a limitation on language here that can make some of these correlations seem confusing, so we encourage creative understanding here so that the terms are not always literal. For instance, it might sound strange that Impaling or Impact requires True Order/Beauty, but if you think of these Wounding correlations as extensions of Martyrdom and Impatience, both rooted in fears of losing Control, you might see why any healing would require a shift in understanding the nature of Beauty and Order. A fragment who is thrown through a windsheild because of his Impatience might be an example. A fragment who is rendered lifeless because of the "impaling" of her heart by the rejection of a loved one might be another example. Being Wounded and Being Healed are MESSY. There is no hard, clean, perfect correlation, and there is often a great deal of overlapping of correlations, so we offer these insights only as guidelines for those who explore Healing, or need Healing. ALL Wounding is a progression that begins INTELLECTUALLY, then EMOTIONALLY, and then PHYSICALLY. This means that if Wounding has come to the level of Physicality, it is almost assured that there is Wounding "up through" the Emotions and Intellect. When we say "All wounding," we mean ALL. Even "Accidents." This does not mean that Wounding is a fault of the Wounded, but it is often a result of a path of choices, internally and externally, that led to the state that allowed for, or created, the Wounding. Even in cases of Homicide. Again, this is not a matter of fault or choices made on obvious levels, but there is something to the fact that two people can be in the same place at the same time doing the same things and only one is Wounded. [liiona24] Please comment on the validity Of the Reconnection As brought forth by Eric Pearl as " new" Healing energy There is no "new" healing energy. All Healing is essentially the return of Order from Chaos, however that is described or packaged, tangibly or intangibly. There are many illnesses in modern times that are susceptible to "miracles" or "energy healing" because the illness never truly existed in the dimension from which it was diagnosed, such as AIDS, Cancers, several other chronic issues. This is not to say that there are no such things as collapses of immune systems, or Cancers, or other chronic issues, but those categories have a percentage of diagnoses that are valid diagnoses at one point, but because the "illness" is not Physically-rooted, the return of Order to the Emotions, or Intellect, can "cure" the "illness." Often, the return of Order to the Intellect and Emotion does not require Physical Healing, or Treatment, but a simple shift in beliefs or feelings. Energetic Healing can ONLY ever return order to the Intellect or Emotion, which may then result in being reflected Physically, of course. When we say "Energetic" here, we refer to those practices that would not require Physical contact in any way. In short, to clarify with Marion: we think the idea of "The Reconnection" is more likely a "Repackaging" of ideals and energies that have always been available. This is not to say that the repackaging is "bad," because even our own teaching requires repackaging for different students with different capacities for hearing us. [Nicholas] When Dr. Pearl and others refer to "new" healing, could they be referring to the validity that as a collective, we are opening up to more possibilities of healing as a reflection of the shift to Mature Soul paradigm? In response to Nicholas: we cannot speak on the behalf of the fragment who is known as "Dr. Pearl," or his associates, but we can say that a Mature-based Paradigm would have far more validity to the concept of "Energetic" healing, since most Emotional and Intellectual Wounding would also be considered as valid. In a Young-based paradigm, most Healing is only considered valid on the levels of the tangible. It is only in recent years, relatively speaking, that the concept of Therapy was considered something of validity."Therapy," in terms of Psychologists, Pscyho-, etc. [TimW] Can you please elaborate a little more on what you said, "Extrapolating meaning from those correlation to Axes can shed light on those methods, as well, for Healers"? Possibly a couple of examples with relation to physical "energetic" healing (if time permits)? For example, Tim, those who are wounded from attempted Homicide would clearly benefit from healing that focuses on the Action Axis, so that a sense of Order for that individual's Time or Space is vital, or put another way: that the Martyrom and Impatience is addressed. Those who suffer from the wounding of attempted Homicides do well to have had their sense of Control brought into focus for their lives in some way, because Homicide, or Impaling/Impact, on a Body CAN throw the entire life into absolute lack of control. For those who are wounded by the methods of Suicide, it is vital that Inspiration is brought back into his or her life. Suicides are usually the result of Inspirational elements collapsing into Chaos, so a return to Order in that context can help bring about True Healing. We realize that "Suicide" is also the Negative Pole of Self-destruction, which is an Expression Axis Chief Feature, but this is another example of Context. In the context of Methods for implementing Wounding, Suicide correlates to Inspiration. In the context of Results of Fear, Suicide correlates to Expression. For those who are Wounded by Accidents, there is a necessity for those fragments to understand "the message" in the "Accident," as all Accidents are Expressions, or Messages. In fact, there are no "accidents," but it is a valid category for understanding how Wounding is implemented, and Accidents equal Messages. Healers, then, would help that fragment to understand what "lesson" or "message" might have been in the accident. [Diane_H] Can you explain the difference between Intellectual and Emotional healing? Are they often intertwined? Intellectual Healing would require the Order returned to the Intellect, or the Intellectual Center to return to the Positive Pole of INSIGHT. This is usually a matter of returning the fragment to a state of honesty about his or her life in a way that brings that Insight, instead of a chronic state of REASON. A chronic state of Reason will bring the Intellect into a constant state of overdrive, looking for patterns that are not there, or creating patterns that are not valid, forcing justifications, reasons, explanations for that which is not understood. This, then, can lead to affect the Emotional Center in a way that pulls the Emotions into a chronic state of Negative Pole, which is Sentimentality. Sentimentality is the confusion and blurring between Symbols and Meanings, and when Symbols and Meanings become confused, Beliefs are generated. And so the Intellect that forced a false pattern then begins to believe it in the Emotions. A simplistic example would be in one who might Think that someone's intentions were to hurt her, and so begins to believe that this person did hurt her, because she can feel that hurt. But the truth will have been that she forced an explanation or a reason for someone else's choices that she did not like, and then the person who symbolized "Love" for her is gone, so that means "love" is also gone, and now she has become Intellectually and Emotionally wounded. To bring Healing to her Emotionally, she will have to regain the Order that allows for a person to symbolize Love, but does not confuse the conduit of Love for Love, itself. [Diane_H] So it could be said that Intellectual wounding comes from one's interpretation of symbols, and Emotional wounding is the emotion that result from it? If the Healing is not addressed Intellectually or Emotionally, it can then move into Physicality, and she will either open up to, or create a path to, Homicide, Suicide, Accident, or Natural methods of implementing one of the 7 Woundings. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation. [Kathryn41] I assume that 'wounding' can also be a 'choice' for a life experience, but how often does the choice to experience one type of wounding lead to a collateral type of wounding, for example, a consequence of choosing a body type that allows for the chosen wounding to occur but experiencing an additional injury/illness that came along because of that body type? We will say here that it is rare that Wounding is CHOSEN, though sometimes, it is. What is a more accurate way to understand the nature of Choice, in this regard, is that Wounding is often a RESULT of Choices. [Kathryn41] the example I can use is a child with type 1 diabetes - born with the condition - a chosen condition more easily manifested in lunar body and then later in life experiencing another type of injury for which the lunar body is especially susceptible A Body Type is chosen that may have predispositions to certain health issues or deformities, but it was not necessarily the health issues or deformities that were chosen, but that they were hooked in to other choices that were more important as priorities. For instance, an Essence may have thought it was a great idea, or a great method for balancing Karma, to choose a Body Type that may lend itself to a sort of dependency that allowed for kindness, patience, and Love to come into the experiences of the Personality, from within and without. Often these "great ideas" go in all kinds of directions once the life is in motion, but that is part of the Chaos and Beauty that is inherent in any life, even in the most-perfect of body with the most-perfect of plans and Karma-free life. [Oscar] What would those wounded by natural/shutting down need for True Healing, or is there no healing possible since it's natural? UNDERSTANDING. That is all. Those who are Wounded by Natural Causes/Shutting Down can often do best with a simple bit of comfort in Wisdom shared with him or her or from him or her. In terms of Wounding/Dying, Natural Causes/Shutting Down is about bringing comprehension to the moment about the life before exiting, and this can show up as the life "flashing before their eyes," or from loved ones around the bed side, etc. In terms of Wounding/Dying, it might even be better understood as "Gratitude" that is a part of the Healing. In terms of Implementation, with something like a Natural Disaster which may bring Impact, Impaling, Illness, Poison, etc, it can still be helpful for those who experienced that Implementation to grasp the nature of Nature, so that it is not seen as personal. Though it will always be the most-helpful to focus on the actual Method of Wounding, for Healing purposes. [VLS] Is there any healing that can be done with the dying involving touch, if so can you advise the best approach-thank you ALL Physical forms of Healing affect Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies, whereas Emotional Healing can only affect Emotional and Intellectual Bodies, and Intellectual Healing is limited to Intellectual Bodies. This is because the denser the form of Healing, the more it can be accessed by the subtler Bodies. This is not to say that Emotional Healing cannot bring about Physical Healing, but it would not be direct. Physical Healing, or rather, having a Physical Medium for Healing, can bring about multiple layers of Energy for use in the multiple bodies. For instance, your Touch can bring with it the Comfort that is of the Physical Level of Healing, the Affection that is the Emotional Level of Healing, and the Permission that is the Intellectual Level of Healing. We are speaking to you about a very specific kind of Touch that you bring, and not all Touch would bring that same kind of Healing. A simple resting of the hand on the person who is exiting is enough, and in some cases, the moving of the energy of the bodies through use of swirls and various contact points, can be the form that is used. We will clarify here that all Bodies are interconnected in many ways, so the Healing that is offered without Physicality does not mean it will not help the Physical Bodies. And not all Physical contact is a form of Healing, but is often forms of Treatment. For instance, the Emergency Room of a Hospital is mostly-filled with Treatments, not Healing. Healing often comes later. [DavidB] Someone asked me to pose this question: "What makes one healer more effective than another?" RESONANCE. There is no Healing between a Healer and The Wounded without Resonance. This is why even the most "whackadoodle" of false healers can bring about such "miracles" (which is a term to describe false or misunderstood forms of Beauty from Chaos) because there is Resonance between the two fragments. And it is why the consistency of even the most powerful Healers cannot facilitate Healing for everyone, because there must be Resonance. Resonance can only come through Empathy, which is built from Experience, which may or may not always come from within the current lifetime. In other words, one can only truly facilitate Healing for that which he or she has already healed within himself or herself, even if that healing came in other lives. We know this is a rather broad topic, but we think we have covered enough tonight for some provocation of thought and exploration that may shed insight into the experience of Healing and Wounding. We will conclude here. Goodnight to each of you. Goodbye.
  5. OMW - Oct 19, 2013 - The Body's Language Channel: Troy Tolley 10/19/2013 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin on the subject requested. The subject requested is that of the "body's language." This is a highly subjective topic that is difficult to cover in broad terms, but because the body is shared across the species, and has been the medium of experience for all fragments incarnating, there are very basic levels of language that could be considered collectively consistent and applicable. The body's language is fairly simplistic and while the messages are symbolic because of their condensed representation, the symbols often tend to be fairly literal. For example, if one is bitten, it can reflect how one is harming the self through internalized anger or guilt. This is fairly literal in that these things that "eat at you" can culminate into a "bite." This bite, while fairly literal then, is symbolic in that the anger or guilt must still be unpackaged into something clear about its potential origins, focus, and how it is serving the self. We cannot possibly cover all of the ailments, injuries, or illnesses that carry messages, so what we would do today is speak to how these can not only be interpreted on your own, but how you can unpack the insight from that ailment, injury, or illness based on where it is occurring in the body. Keep in mind that not all ailments, injuries, or illnesses are messages. There is a high probability that you are simply experiencing the scathing effects of living in a dense plane in a body that is vulnerable. ALL ailments, injuries, and illnesses can be interpreted as messages, but they are not necessarily intended as messages. To help you understand this differentiation, and why it is fairly moot, consider this: The sun will rise every day for Earth, and it does not do so just for you, but one day, you notice the beauty of that sunrise, and you pause, take it in, and it means something to you. There are many sunrises, many unnoticed, and many who see them or dismiss them, but this one today made a difference. It was not that the sun had a message, but that your consciousness made the choice to experience that sunrise in a meaningful way. The lack of inherent meaning vs. the extracted meaning are not in conflict, and do not negate one another. We mention this because if you are looking into the messages of an ailment, injury, or illness, then it means something to you, and can be treated with as much value as a message that was generated. However, if you wish to differentiate, then there are considerations that can be kept in mind. The message of an ailment, injury, or illness can be explored through the WHAT and the WHERE. What the ailment is, where it is. But the key for differentiating inherent message from extracted message is in the HOW. If you are a rock climber, then you are going to have injuries relative to the nature of rock climbing. If your hands are calloused, or you cut yourself on a rock, it may be very likely that it was simply scathing. If you are walking down the street, and a car drives over a rock that is then flipped into the air, flinging toward your forehead, this may be more of a generated message and not "just" scathing. Both scenarios can create meaning from the injury and gain something from that, but we caution against inundating yourself with interpretations of "everything" that bothers your body. If you are on your cell phone, not paying attention, and you walk into the path of a car, this may not be an inherent message beyond "watch what you are doing, be mindful," but if a car slides onto the sidewalk and hits you, there may be a message. So consider the HOW, if you wish to narrow down your body's language to the messages being generated from emotional and intellectual processes. There is value in considering the HOW, not for the sake of dismissing the injury, illness, or ailment when it is not generated, but for grasping the nature of its existence in the first place, which can often have more valuable meaning. For example, if you are a rock climber who is exploring an injury, that injury may simply be a part of the scathing that comes from rock climbing, but "why are you a rock climber?" This may be much more informative than the injury. If you have chronic headaches caused by your lack of hydration, the headaches may have information, but your refusal to hydrate more probably has even more to say about your processes. Before we continue on, do each of you understand this differentiation in the question of "HOW?" [Janet] Yes [MikeS] Yes [Bobby] yes [GeraldineB] I understand it, but don't resonate with it [Maureen] yes [DianeHB] I think so [ClaireC] yes [Jana_K] yes [MEntity] In what way have you found dissonance here, Geraldine? We will address this if it is a matter of clarification. If it is a matter of disagreement, we would honor your perspective, of course. [GeraldineB] It's a matter of "hard to accept". Or rather that meaning has no meaning [MEntity] That there is a language of the body at all, or that there can be a differentiation? [GeraldineB] Messages from "the Universe" [GeraldineB] it's ok -- continue :) I'm always a hard case on topics like this [MEntity] We will clarify that they are not messages from the universe. In terms of ailments or illness, it can be seem to make sense that these may be generated over time through emotional or intellectual processes, blockages, resistance, wounding, etc., but "random" injuries may seem a bit of a stretch, as if orchestrated. [GeraldineB] I think, perhaps, it's difficult for me to accept that meaning only has the meaning that one gives something -- there is no particular "truth" to it beyond that [MEntity] Injuries are not orchestrated, but they can be generated through attraction. For example, the rock flipping toward the forehead from the wheel of a car may be the 20th time something has flown toward the forehead, and this one finally landed. We can go into the nature of injury in further detail when of interest. For today, we will focus more on the messaging. Geraldine, keep in mind that Meaning is from the circle of Personal Truth. Personal Truth and Meaning are interchangeable. These are chosen, developed, and can change. [GeraldineB] I understand [MEntity] It is a Personal Truth that the sunrise this morning was beautiful and "made my day," but it is a Global Truth that it rises for everyone, every day. There is no infused meaning into truths beyond the Personal. It is a Personal Truth what a headache may mean to an individual, but the mapping and language of ailments, injuries, and illness in the body is a Global Truth. To make more sense of that last sentence, compare it to this: what a person says is a Personal Truth, but that there is expression capable from the human body is a Global Truth. What we look to share with you today is how to put your Personal Truths into perspective through the use of placement in Global Truths. [Maureen] It's a bit like dream symbology -- isn't it? [MEntity] Very much so. In terms of Meaning/Personal Truth, there will always be greater contexts even within these circles that one can seek to understand. For example, we can use a familiar experience of Troy's lack of focus, management of scheduling, and delivery of services. This can be "taken personally" and felt to be offensive and infuriating, and this would not be untrue, but that offense and fury would be a Personal Truth within a larger circle of Personal Truth, which is that there is no intended meaning in those delays, and that they are products of design and capabilities of the channel. These nuances are what we mean by events not always having inherent meaning, with meaning being created by the individual, not the circumstances. On the most personal of levels, anything, anyone, can mean nearly anything one can imagine. Most choose to create meaning that either serves them in harmful ways, or in nurturing ways. There are always larger truths beyond these. We do not know if we have addressed the dissonance, but we will continue. Next we will address the WHERE. There are different systems that have become root assumptions in shared consciousness across all fragments. This happens for all forms of Sentience. This system is not in place at the beginning of incarnations, but develops over thousands, even hundreds of thousands of years of incarnation. Just like any language, it evolves. Because it is such a basic language that is relative to a body, there is little nuance that is relative to culture, race, society, etc. One of the systems is based in regions of the body as they relate to the Chakra System. One of the systems is based in quadrants of the body as they are reflective of cosmic mapping, or astrology. These two systems would be the core for the mapping, but would then be subject to the nuances of individual, cultural, or societal layers, depending upon the degrees of imprinting from family, culture, and society. We will focus on the cores today. Mapping the body using the Chakras (which could be referred to here as Centers, as well), the body then would have 7 "regions." These are, in the most simplistic of references: LEGS, GENITALIA, STOMACH, CHEST/ARMS, NECK/FACE, FOREHEAD, CROWN. Any ailment, injury, or illness specific to a region would then be interpreted as messaging relative to that region and its symbolic context. For example, digestion issues would then be in the stomach region, relative to the Moving Center/Power Chakra. The illness, injury, or ailment here would be relevant to how one is using the Moving Center, or processing through the Power Chakra, and all that this entails. Today will be quite rudimentary in example, but this can be built upon from here to become a meaningful language between yourself and your body so that processes are not simply left to suppression of symptoms and endurance of pains, but a transformation of the wounding that may be far more subtle in source. Once one has considered the Region, then the Quadrant can be considered. These would be as if the body were invisibly divided down the middle from the head, and across the chest just below the breasts. These lines are not strict, but symbolic in location. [Bobby] How would one determine the quadrant for "the Head" since it falls in the middle of a demarcation zone? [MEntity] Bobby, the head would be divided down the middle, so that one side is upper right, and the other is upper left. The UPPER LEFT tends to have messages relevant to SELF, or how one is processing "I." The LOWER LEFT tends to have messages relevant to RELATIONSHIPS, or how one processes "We." The UPPER RIGHT tends to have messages relevant to IMPRINTING, or how one processes "I AM." The LOWER RIGHT tends to have messages relevant to FUNCTION, or how one processes "They." We will elaborate upon each of these in more familiar terms, but this is a general picture. Other ways to see these might be that the UPPER LEFT is ASSIMILATION; UPPER RIGHT is EXPRESSION; LOWER LEFT is INSPIRATION; LOWER RIGHT is ACTION. Or Upper Left is (balance or imbalance of) CENTERS; Upper Right is ATTITUDE; Lower Left is MODE; Lower Right is GOAL. The correlations will tend to become obvious upon exploring this, and then can be customized to your most meaningful terms. As you might immediately consider, ailments do not always fall so cleanly into a quadrant, or even a region, for that matter, but this is, first, because these are symbolic demarcations, and second, because the body is a whole system that cannot truly be divided. The mapping is only for the sake of simplifying the move toward conscious awareness of the language of the body, not as a static system. This can be built upon with extrapolations that we will not be able to cover here today in any meaningful depth. The mapping of WHERE, and the discernment for HOW, is half of the work for understanding your personal language of the body. The other half is entirely within the realm of WHAT, which is the specifics of the ailment, injury, or illness. What we will do now is open the floor for questions about what we have shared so far. Questions regarding your particular ailments will be addressed after this. ***QUEUE IS OPEN for questions about the topic so far**** [Janet] When you say 'upper left', I just want to clarify that this would be what I consider my left, and not left from the point of view of someone looking at me. [MEntity] Correct. We can suggest this this mapping be reversed if one is "left-handed. [Janet] I am not. [MEntity] For those who are left-handed, this might require some experimentation, but there is relevance to a dominant "side" versus "passive" side. This is reflected in such practices as Palm Reading, as well, in that the dominant hand reflects how one is expressing the self, while the passive hand reflects the inherent nature of the self. Or "the original plan" versus "what one has done with the plan." No further questions? [Bobby] guess not :-) [MEntity] If not, then we will continue with our suggestion for your workshop element of this exchange. As you begin to explore the language of your body, you can find that it does not communicate with you only in terms of pain, ailments, injury, illness, but even more often in terms of pleasure, sensation, habits, preferences, etc. Much can be revealed to the self about all of the undercurrents of processing if one pays attention to this system of communication and language. What we suggest for each of you is to, literally, map the body over a period of 7 days, keeping track in two ways: ONE) Emphasize awareness of a specific Region of the body for that day, all day. Randomly check in with that area and consider it, touch it, watch how you treat it, even reading about it in terms of Center or Chakra that day for insight. TWO) Note any particular Region and Quadrant as you become aware of habits, pain, pleasure that day. You need not interpret, just note. Note if it was habit, pain, pleasure, distraction, etc., however you wish to describe the awareness drawn to it. At the end of those 7 days, note what patterns there are, both in terms of your intentional exploration, and your discoveries. Correlate these to the Centers, Chakras, Overleaves, etc., in a way that broadens your understanding of how your body is handling your use of the design of You. This can often become one of the most inspiring, intimate, and transformative experiments one can have regarding the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit, if you will. Often, this will have been the first time one has even considered the language of the body, and listened. It can be profound to finally include the most vulnerable, innocent, and unconditional parts of your Being. Keep in mind that your Being is a spectrum that begins in such innocence and vulnerability and is intentionally rooted in each Plane by the vehicle that is created for experience. The Body is as innocent as the Soul. It is just as ignored, as well, if not more so. Often, the difference is not so much how much one is ignored over the other, but how much one is resented over the other. When you can close the spectrum between Body and Soul, there is wholeness, there is a new circuitry that makes a difference. We will now open the floor to question regarding ailments, illness, injury, pleasures, habits, distractions. We cannot do the work for you in determining the messages and meaning, but we can help to bring some support to the process. [Janet] I have a current ailment but I will set that aside for a question about a past ailment. About 7 years ago something (a virus?) suddenly destroyed most of the vestibular nerve associated with my left ear. It took years and physical therapy to relearn basic balance. I find it very interesting that the left upper quadrant is associated with 'balance or imbalance' of centers. I am also 2nd level Old, and I understand that 2nd level is associated with balance and stability. I was mid-5th IM at the time, also. No specific question, other than a request for your comments about the issue in relation to the topic. [MEntity] As you can see, these scenarios often "speak for themselves" when put into perspective of the body as a map for the language. It is not a desperate language that seeks to tell you something, but a reflective language that is speaking for you. This move through the issues of balance/imbalance may have shown up very differently for someone else, but the mapping would reveal to you that this may have been about your relationship with yourself, about bringing yourself in alignment within, to deal with any sense of betrayal within. This may have been reflective of your wish to own the responsibility for wholeness, and not to focus on how this shows up in external relationships, or how you may have felt pushed out of alignment because of obligations, but returning to wholeness through your sense of will, strength, and compassion for your own pain and processes. [Maureen] Occasionally I have a really severe reaction to allergens during an allergy “season”. How are acute or seasonal pains and discomforts or flare-ups different than chronic pains and discomforts? How is my current sinus inflammation and blockage related to my intuition or my Right to Dream? I am assuming that it’s related as the blockage is very close to the 6th Chakra or Third Eye. Actually, I just had 2 sneezes (the first in 2 days) that helped clear it somewhat as I was writing this question out to you Michael. [MEntity] As we have stated, all allergies are denials. These denials are often symbolized in the details of the allergy. Denial here tends to be in terms of POWER, or RIGHT. Seasonal allergies can be ways for working through the layers of denial that continue to remain, or be rebuilt and enforced over a cycle of time. Airborne/plant allergies tend to be relative to one's denial of Power or Right for a "place" in the world. Seasonal allergies would tend to be reflective of an ongoing processing or struggle, as we said, but a chronic or persistent allergy can indicate a deep wounding relative to the symbolism of the allergy. In your case, there is some wounding, but more that there is always a struggle between vision and reality. [Maureen] that made me laugh [MEntity] "Reality" can often be quite disappointing when compared to your visions. [DianeHB] What would be associated with menstrual cramps? Challenges with the Higher Moving Center or Right to Feel? I think I have some of those. [MEntity] Menstrual cramps can be considered inherent pains of being in a female body with a process that produces some pain when releasing eggs from the ovaries, or ovulation. They often do not "mean" anything in any generated way. However, if there are diagnosed issues that exacerbate the pain, then there may be messages here. [DianeHB] Well, fuck. :P Pain killers it is then. [MEntity] Severity of cramping can be reflective of how one is relating to others in terms of intimacy, sexual or otherwise. The greater the cramping, the more likely one is dealing with rejection of feelings related to intimacy regarding one or more relationships. [MikeS] Despite living healthily and without any known genetic disposition (none of my family have it!) I suffer from high blood pressure. Am I correct in identifying my upper left as the quadrant that is sending me a message (hypertension) about how I process myself? Could you please expand on that as a means for me to sew together my understanding of the what, with the how and the where? [MEntity] When one deals with high blood pressure, it can be inherent as a result of other choices or factors, and not necessarily a generated message. It might be part of a syndrome related to, say, weight gain, stresses, sleeplessness, etc. However, if it is a generated message, it is often about how one is relating to the current self as compared to the past. It can be reflective of the process of releasing the past as the standard for comparison. It can be a process of dealing what "Who I Am" vs "Who I Thought I Would Be." And this can be either negatively charged, positively charged, but often a mix of both. This is about how you show up in the world, then, as a result of this. The What would be "hypertension" in the primary Where of Upper Left and Heart Chakra Region. We have not gone into the details of the What, but we think that many of the "what" are fairly literal, and there are some fragments who have done the work of general interpretation that we feel is fair enough as a starting reference. [MikeS] Would the role of Artisan be more likely to 'make' a condition like hypertension? [MEntity] You would want to play with the various correlations for the Where for greatest range of insight. No, we do not find much consistency in terms of ailments correlating to Roles. [Jana_K] I had a fungal problem with the two smallest toenails on my left foot for about 18 years now. I have tried to treat it chemically, mechanically, diet-wise, and nothing has got rid of it, though I have to say that I have not persevered 100% with any of those methods due to the amount of effort required. I have only marginally looked into possible body-messages meaning, until just now. It's in the quadrant of Relationships, according to what you have just related. Feet/leg problems in general, according to Valeri Sinelnikov's book "Love Thy Illness", are about strong fear of future, fear or reluctance to move forward in life. Does that correspond to LEGS, in your system? And which Chakra is that tied to - Root (1st)? Further, Sinelnikov says that he found that people who suffer from fungal infections strongly dwell on old experiences, wrong-doings and injustices. That their old views have "got mouldy". That they do not wish to give up the past, and allow it to drive their present. And this in turn stops them going forward in life (back to legs/feet in general). Nail issues in general according to him then signify feeling of vulnerability and constant danger. Could you comment and give me a steer in the interpretation? [MEntity] Yes, this would correspond to LEGS and ROOT/INSTINCTIVE. It is valid that fungal infections tend to be reflective of extremely old and outdated beliefs related to the past that are held onto in ways that are distracting at best, and lethal at worst. They are in direct conflict with efforts to move forward, and become quite highlighted in the body. In your case, these would appear to be minor, but persistent. The Quadrant suggests these are related to your processing of trust in the future of a relationship. It may mean that while you willing go forward, there is always a nagging, distracting insistence that speaks to an old idea about being discovered to be ugly, to not be seen beyond some of your private behaviors, or having trouble integrating those into a relationship. It may speak to a justification for "hiding." [Jana_K] that makes soooo much sense [MEntity] It may speak to the justification for needing to tend to yourself because you would not want that burden to be upon another. And so on. We merely offer suggestions, but you can extrapolate from there. In breaking "the code," so to speak, many of these conditions may find near-miraculous reversals if the underlying pattern is brought to consciousness for processing. [ClaireC] I have chronic pain in my right shoulder blade from a very old repetitive strain injury which persists regardless of any treatment. Can you offer me any insight on this? [MEntity] First, you would want to look at the nature of the original repetitive strain injury. Was this scathing by the very nature of the effort? [ClaireC] Yes [MEntity] In that case, it is most likely a matter of the nature of the physical plane and being in a body when using it in a certain way. If someone tries to lift a car and hurts his back, it is often just a message that the car was heavy. It may be that your repetitive injury is along that vein. Nothing metaphysical or reflective of underlying processes, but natural scathing. [ClaireC] But the pain continues long after I discontinued that action (using a computer mouse, of all things) :-) [MEntity] However, for such a persistent condition, relief and repair can still be gained through insight. [ClaireC] Yes, that is what I'm hoping.... How would this be related to Expression? [MEntity] The origin of the persistent pain might be reflective of your Imprinting and how repetitive behaviors fulfilled some of your fears about who/how you may become, while the process of effort for healing is the undoing of the momentum of that past. [ClaireC] That is helpful. [MEntity] These more insidious levels of imprinting can take a great deal of time for undoing. The effects may already be in the life, so it can seem that there is no way to undo the "damage," much like the repetitive strain seems to have left you, but this is a distraction. It is in the space between the pain that the truth can be found. The pain may return, may be persistent, but it is not always there, and when the emphasis can be found in that focus of freedom, however short-lived, it can begin to expand in time and space. The pain is a process, it is resistance. Pain is always resistance. But that is to be expected from such long-term momentum. It is like tapping on the brakes of a car that was speeding at 100 kilometers per hour. It is a careful resistance to change speed, to reverse directions, or merely to turn a corner. Embrace this pain as part of the process, while including the breaks between as the truth of the process, and experiment with the effects of this. [ClaireC] Thank you, Michael, I will. [MEntity] We must conclude here for today. Each of you are walking vessels of truths, processes, and messages. Most of this is ignored until between lives, but you are expressing courage and consciousness in your willingness to hear yourselves in new ways. This is Good Work. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  6. OMW - Jul 2, 2011 - Healing Relationships Channel: Troy Tolley [CocteauBoy announces] so this will have three parts: Introduction/Discussion/Application Michael will talk about the topic; then the floor will open for general questions about the topic; then the focus will move into exercises... So while I bring in Michael, write down (privately) up to three relationships that you feel are in need of healing, so that as Michael walks through all of this info, you have specific examples to work with. Let's get started! Have a great session! [Martha] Can they be dead? [CocteauBoy] (yeah) [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We suggest taking a cleared moment right now for taking a few deep gentle breaths, allowing your focus to be present with your body, while inviting resonance among all of you, and with us, however that works for you in your imagination. And we will begin on the subject of "healing relationships" now. First, we will define "Relating" as "discovering and/or creating common ground." We will define "relationship" as "an attraction or repulsion that binds or bonds one to another." This means that even in hatred, there is a relationship, and the repulsion is still rooted in a common ground. Often in hatred, the common ground is feared, or is not understood, and this gives rise to the hatred or repulsion. Love and Hate are not opposites; they are both bound in Intimacy. Hate is as intimate as Love, when they are legitimate. Apathy is the "opposite" of both. It could be said, then, that the positive pole of Relationship is Attraction, and the negative pole is Repulsion. Another way to describe it may be Resonance and Dissonance. Dissonance and Repulsion are merely different ways of describing a state of UNRESOLVE. The lack of resolve is generated by the natural tendency for sentience to generate common ground, yet not being able to understand what that is, or why that is. Some examples: one who is homophobic tends to relate far more closely to the sexuality that is feared or hated than the phobic one wishes to accept. Rejecting homosexuals, then, is a way of tangibly distancing oneself from the common ground of sexuality. Another who is homophobic may not be homosexual, himself, but simply have been taught to fear or simply does not understand this version of a common ground of sexuality. All phobias, then, are Relationships, in themselves, and in the pole of Dissonance, or unresolved common ground. An aside: Allergies, as well, fall into the category of Relationships, and always represent some form of Denial, or Dissonance. There are Relationships of Attraction and Dissonance, and all relationships will fall somewhere within that spectrum. In other words, a Relationship of Love may be Dissonant and not be Attractive, and a Relationship of Hate may be extremely Attractive. Fearing or Not Understanding your Common Ground does not preclude Love or Intimacy. Wounded Relationships are those relationships that have damaged, lost, or rejected the Common Ground that had previously been accepted. Relationships of Hate, then, are not necessarily Wounded, and Relationships of Love are not necessarily Healed. If Attraction is the acceptance and awareness of a common ground, and Dissonance is the unresolve of the fear or misunderstanding of the common ground, then ALL Relationships by definition have a Common Ground, whether the extremes of Love and Hate are involved, or not. The drama, hatred, love, passion, kindness, fighting, arguing, estrangement, romance, etc., are not indications of Wounding, then. They are simply part of the spectrum of Relationships. Wounding is ONLY when the Common Ground is lost, rejected, or damaged. That being said, the more unpleasant spectrum of feelings involved in a relationship can TEND to be associated with Wounding, but this is a tendency, not a rule or equation. In other words, just because you are estranged, or fighting, or caught up in drama, does not automatically mean there is Wounding. However, when there is Wounding, it can often result in estrangement, fighting, and drama. We share all of this so that you understand that your Relationships are as unique and as beautiful as each individual, and cannot be so simply dismissed as Wounded, just because you are unhappy or angry, etc. In fact, some relationships thrive on the Common Ground of Unhappiness or Anger. And they are far from Wounded. Wounded Relationships are usually marked by complete "reset" of the Relationship. A withdrawal from all Common Ground. The Healing comes through the efforts to re-establish, re-discover, and rebuild Common Ground. For Relationships that no longer have the other party involved, whether because of death or distance or complete rejection, Common Ground can still be re-established, re-discovered, and rebuilt. [Brian_W] how? [MEntity] Relationships are a two-way street, so to speak, but Healing does not require both parties. The short answer to how to Heal a Wounded Relationship is to re-establish, re-discover, and/or rebuild the Common Ground. When the other party is not available, it is only a matter of first identifying the most-obvious Common Ground between you. In cases where the person is distant, then Distance can actually be the starting point for Common Ground. In cases where the person has fully rejected all communication, then Hurt can be your Common Ground. In cases where the person is no longer incarnated, your Past can be your Common Ground. Identifying the very thing "between" you as your starting point of Common Ground can often diffuse that very thing. As soon as a Common Ground has been identified and accepted, Healing automatically begins. Healing a Relationship does not necessarily equate it being as you fantasize it, remember it, wish it to be. Healing a Relationship is not an investment, but a gift, for all involved. By identifying and accepting your Hurt or Distance or Past as your Common Ground, one can often free a great deal of energy that can then bring clarity, insight, patience, compassion, peace, and then those can potentially begin to be included as Common Grounds. [Brian_W] Quick question -- can distance include both temporal and / or spacial? [MEntity] Yes. All of what we have shared so far has been the basics of Relationships and Healing, and just understanding these basics can bring some relief and true Healing to some of your most difficult relationships, but also bring understanding and lightness to those relationships that are not wounded, but are simply challenging. Some of your most annoying, challenging, dramatic, and inconvenient Relationships are not so because of Wounding, but because they are simply those things. Understanding this can help you to move to address the challenges directly, instead of being concerned that there is something to "fix." Relationships come in a combination of these elements (or sets): Sexual/Physical, Emotional, Intellectual. Brief, Short-term, and Long-term. Sensual, Shallow, and Deep. All Relationships would be, at least, a combination of one element from each of these. For instance, a Relationship may be Sexual, Short-term, and Deep. Or Emotional, Brief, and Shallow. Sensual would be those relationships that share in feeling good, sharing sensations, stimulation of some sort, including pleasure. Shallow would be those relationships that require little investment, and are not concerned greatly with reward or payoff. Deep would be those relationships that encourage the transformation of fear, or Chief Features. The first set of Elements correspond to the category of Physical, and basically describe the primary means of Interaction. The second set of Elements corresponds to the category of Emotional, and basically describe the interpretation and use of Time or Inspiration. The third set of Elements correspond to the Intellect, and describe the degree of Presence, or Expression. While none of these are necessarily sequential, and can be "mixed and matched" in any number of ways, they do tend to build upon each other in the order we described. For instance, Sensual usually leads to Shallow, and Shallow leads to Deep. Physical usually leads to Emotional leads to Intellectual, etc. By the way, we do not use the term "shallow" here in any negative sense, but only in the sense of depth of investment within and between. Using the sequential tendency, it is also true of all relationships that as they move from one end of the Elements to the other, they will tend to lose emphasis on the previous. So the relationship that is Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep will include, but not necessarily emphasize Physical, Brief, and Sensual. Because this is not understood, many Long-term Mated relationships fail, because they are distracted by the social emphasis on Sensual and Sexual/Physical. The Older the soul, the more likely the Relationships will tend toward the Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep. This is true, even within closed systems, such as Aging. The longer one is in the Body, the more the Relationship with it tends toward Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep. The Whole Relationship, or the Healthy Relationship, is one that includes SPIRIT, or MIND, depending upon one's terminology, the Assimilative or Neutral Element. By "Spirit" we mean that there is an awareness of the Whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Regardless of any combination, Spirit can be involved. The easiest way to understand "spirit," in this case, is to understand it as that part of you who knows the Relationship is serving you in some way that is meaningful, or can be meaningful. Regardless of the state of the Relationship. We share these various Elements so that you might understand the nature of your Relationship, as it began, where it is, and what you may have expected of it, and that understanding can free you to bring healing, if necessary. The subject of Relationships is as vast as any other subject we can discuss with you, but we will share one more area of consideration as it relates to Healing, before taking questions. Relationships are formed through the MODE, in terms of Overleaves. Depending upon one's Mode, Relationships will TEND to form in certain ways, and TEND to Heal in certain ways. To be brief for the sake of our limited time here, we will share those details for each Mode. RESERVE MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of History; tends to "get to know" others through their Centering; and tends to require dealing with the past as part any relationship healing process. CAUTION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Motives/Motivations; tends to bond/bind through the GOAL; and requires a return to SAFETY as part of any relationship healing process. PERSEVERANCE MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Appearances or Behavior; tends to bond/bind with another through Body Type; requires tangible action as a means for healing any relationship. OBSERVATION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Perspective; tends to Bond/Bind through the Mode; requires feeling UNDERSTOOD as a means for healing a Relationship. POWER MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Confidence; tends to bond/bind with another through the Attitude; and requires HONESTY as a means for healing a relationship. PASSION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Imagination; tends to bond/bind with others through Soul Age; and requires the experience of BEING SEEN as part of any healing of a Relationship. AGGRESSION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of The LIFE (as a whole); tends to bond/bind with another's Role; and requires recovering INTEGRITY as a means for healing a Relationship. We share these correlations so that you can understand how you may find your angle on building Relationships, and what you might require for healing, as well as others' angle on building Relationships, and what they might require for healing. These attractions, bondings, and requirements for healing are not exclusive to each Mode, but are tendencies that can be helpful as a starting place for healing. As this is our first time communicating some of this through Troy in this way, we know that some elaboration and clarification may be necessary over time, but this is a good start. We will now take questions on the subject. [Geraldine] Please clarify why phobias and allergies are considered relationships [MEntity] Relationships here are defined by "attraction/resonance or repulsion/dissonance of a common ground that binds or bonds one to another." Phobias and allergies are relationships of repulsion/dissonance of a common ground. Phobias and Allergies are basically the differences between Conscious and Subconscious Repulsion/Dissonance. Phobias tend to be conscious dissonance and repulsions, whereas Allergies tend to be subconscious dissonance and repulsions. [Geraldine] but how are they relationships? they aren't people [MEntity] Phobias and Allergies, both, tend to be symbolic and tend to be representative of the Relationship between "you" and "yourself." That could be between "you" and your emotions, your body, your beliefs, your soul, etc. Your sexuality, your past, etc. [Geraldine] ok -- the battleground of self [MEntity] Whether it is the concept of homosexuality, or the effects of pollen, the Common Ground is "you," and how you relate to you. We can elaborate on these as a topic another time, including delineating the various allergies and what they may represent. [Maureen] In an earlier private session with you, we spoke of my ‘revulsion’ for my mother at times and you said – in short – that I would feel the revulsion of those last issues that remain with my Essence – coming to terms with my Essence's "past," and that we are most often repulsed by reflections more than by perceptions. Then you said: “Deciding how to handle such behaviour would give great insight into where you are within yourself/Essence in terms of resolving those remaining conflicts.” Do you have any suggestions for how I (or one) might specifically go about resolving these conflicts from “within”, from the “past”? [MEntity] By responding to your question, we skip ahead to the Application part of our exchange with you: First: determine if there actual wounding, which is defined by your having once shared an identified and accepted common ground; Second: ask if that shared and identified common ground has been lost, damaged, or rejected; Third: identify any common ground you may have, even if it is not one you prefer; Fourth: take responsibility for your part of the Dissonance/Repulsion by understanding what it is, based on your Mode. In your case, with Observation Mode, it may be that you are repulsed by lacking shared perceptions, and not feeling understood; [Maureen] I'm more revulsed by my mother not understanding her own behavior -- and then "owning it" - it is less (now) about her understanding me. [MEntity] By "take responsibility" we mean that you can accept that these are things that are important to you, not only in terms of how they are provided for you, but by others, for themselves. The "reflection" here is that you are just as hard on yourself, as on your mother, in your expectations, standards, and efforts to self-monitor and control yourself. The Dissonance or unresolve here is that you dislike this part of you as much as you need it, and when you see someone else disregard such a priority for you, it is repulsive. This is not to say that these expectations, standards, and efforts are "wrong," but that they are your own. In the end, you are resentful and hurt for having to become your own parent. [Maureen] That hit a nerve... [MEntity] The Common Ground between the two of you is that you are both hurting, you are both children, with the difference between you being that you feel you had to take up the slack for your mother not doing the work of her own healing or maturing. You want some recognition for what you have had to do to "grow up" before you wanted to, or should have to, grow up. Your mother epitomizes the pattern you have with others in your life, as well, in terms of your having to take the "adult" role, even as you would prefer not to. We speak to this, based on our interpretation of records here, but we may be incorrect. [Maureen] it sounds right - thanks! [MEntity] The difference between your mother and others is that most of the other relationships were chosen, while you are "stuck" with your mother. Once one can take responsibility for what it is at the heart of the Dissonance/Repulsion, then one can go to the Fifth step of taking responsibility for what tends to be required for Healing. As this relates to the Mode. For your example, Observation tends to require feeling understood, or that another person understands. Either asking for what you require, or providing it yourself, can free the relationship to move toward Healing. The Sixth step would be in understanding what might be required of the other individual for Healing. In your case, your mother requires the same as you. She needs to feel understood as much as you need to feel, and because this is a Mode that "slides," each you may move to other requirements. In your case, you slide to Passion/Reserve, which means that you need the Past to be dealt with, and/or to Be Seen. And your mother, sliding to Power, requires Honesty, which means that she may have to say what she feels, even if it is not true to you, and she will benefit from your being Honest, and saying what is true for you, even if not immediately true for her. It is the Honesty that is required, though, if Healing is to be. The Seventh step then would be in recognizing or allowing SPIRIT to return, which basically means remembering or creating a higher meaning and value of the relationship that transcends even the challenges and joys. We will return to these steps in a moment. First, we will respond to the other questions. [Martha] Can healing of a relationship spread to other parallels where the relationship is also wounded? [MEntity] No. Technically, no. The work of one parallel will not impact the state of another, but the work of one parallel can draw toward a merge with another parallel that is similar in state due to the work of healing. For example: one parallel may be in no need of healing, while another is. The one that requires healing can eventually merge with the other parallel, if healing is accomplished. [Brian_W] This might tie into Maureen's question, as I definitely see how this applies to healing relationships with others, but in general, what would be the common ground with ourselves? [MEntity] Your idea of "you," your heart, your feelings, your identity, your desires, your cravings, your body, your health, your self-image, etc. Anything that could be described as "yours" would be the common ground. For example, the homophobe would be in a dissonant relationship with his sexuality through the symbolic concept of homosexuality and the homosexuals who exemplify it. [ClaireC] Can you give me some insight as to what the "difference between Conscious and Subconscious Repulsion/Dissonance" is behind my sister's chronic, severe allergies? [MEntity] Keep in mind that there is a vast difference between intolerances and allergies, and chronic, severe intolerances are not indicative of anything but genetics, which may or may not have been intentional as part of the design of the Body. Allergies trigger an immune system reaction, whereas intolerances do not. We would have to look at the details of these allergies to determine the dissonance/denial behind them, and at this point we cannot. [ClaireC] Hers are environmental allergies, it seems. [MEntity] If the allergies are legitimate, and environmentally-related, then this often reflects the dissonance between you and "your world." This often comes from a denial of one's power, or right to be, in the world. When we say "environmentally-related," we mean that it is an immune reaction to several threats that are common in the average person's environment, and usually includes an array. If it is specifically pollen, or dander, for instance, then the dissonance may be different. [ClaireC] Definitely allergic to both pollen and dander. [MEntity] In terms of applying this information, we suggest looking at one of your suggested three relationships that may require healing, and walk through the initial list of details for Relationships, and see how that relationship might be interpreted and understood differently. And then use the steps outlined with Maureen for determining if and how a relationship may need healing. [ClaireC] Yes, that was very helpful information that can be applied to all relationships. [MEntity] We are fading, however, and this channel must stop for now. Troy can continue work with the application aspect in your group forum.
  7. [Extracted from: Michael Speaks: November 2005 ] [kittlekats41] For those scholars among us, I would appreciate any advice on how to release physical energy and injuries ‘held’ in the body or to process them more effectively MEntity: Laughing is the most powerful agent of healing for a Scholar. Laughing is result of the reconciliation of paradoxes, and paradoxes are part of the pain of a Scholar. The Scholar, more than any other Role, is more likely than any other Role to remain Emotionally isolated, generating the most elaborate of walls around his or her Personality. This Emotional isolation becomes an art and the ends to which the walls are justified by a Scholar are incredible. In many cases, the Scholar is literally clueless to the extent his walls isolate him. The effect this tends to have is a stagnancy of energy, for lack of a better phrase; the Emotional body grows “stale,” “moldy.” Laughter, then, is an immediate rush of fresh energy into the system of a Scholar, infusing for a moment the Emotional cells, so to speak. The walls that isolate the Scholar are in place because the Scholar cannot reconcile some things that require an Emotional element; therefore it becomes a paradox to the Scholar and he must isolate until it is “figured out.” Until he realizes that not all things can be “figured out,” but that they can sometimes require absurd hilarity as a means to bring resolution, he is locked in a cycle of theories. For the Scholar to identify several constant, reliable sources of laughter can literally save his or her life, or at the very least, alter the flow of energy to the point of bringing peace and resolution and health to a number of areas. How absurd for us to suggest for those Scholars battling cancer to “laugh it off,” but that is precisely our point. It is not a magickal solution, but it is one through which a Scholar can then find the means to more effective solutions, if needed.
  8. 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.
  9. The Magic of Healing Originally published on July 17, 2012 Although I have spoken to Michael several times about Healing, every time I see something on John of God or other "over-the-top" healers, I start wondering what is actually going on. Do the "rest of us" have the same potential? What is the Magic of Healing? From a Private Live Chat – July 5, 2012 Maureen: have wondered if I could be an even more “powerful” healer – like John of God for example. But when I think about it – I wouldn’t want the numbers of people flocking to see me – like they do to him – in droves. Is that holding me back? Do we all have the same potential? Am I or could I be as powerful an “energy” healer as he is? I don’t think this is Self-Deprecation talking – I am really wondering about this. MEntity: First, True Healers are only facilitators. Ever. It does not tend to be about "power" or "being powerful," and tends to be a matter of igniting an individual's own capacity to heal. This is true even of the most allopathic of healings. MEntity: When one who can Heal then hooks into a broad belief system that is so insidiously inculcated and imprinted, such as the concept of a religious God who is personal and powerful, then the healing that comes can be rather "easy" for triggering. MEntity: Those who would be healed by that healer would be those who share in that belief system. MEntity: The presence and actions of the healer, along with the belief system, and along with the eagerness for results, often trigger valid healing properties that can then be measured. Maureen: That's interesting – but I don't want to buy into that belief system – just to get better results! MEntity: However, in your case, you are stripped of interest in catering to most belief systems that perpetuate beliefs that are often "bullshit," and are often at the very heart of the reasons for illness among those who subscribe to those beliefs. Maureen: Yes – I can see that MEntity: In fact, part of your healing effects would come in the form of helping those immersed in their own "bullshit" to come free of it. THAT is a healing in itself, mind you. MEntity: You have actively worked to heal your self of this, as well. Maureen: Yes. Maureen: so obviously – I'm a different kind of healer then – yes Maureen: it feels a bit "lonely" though sometimes – without all the hocus pocus! Maureen: so many people want that – not the "truth" Maureen: the truth is often too simple and revealing MEntity: Your recipients of healing may not be clamoring at your door with the weight of widespread beliefs and imprinting that can be hooked into for popularity, but your recipients are, nonetheless, still carrying the weight of beliefs, but ones that you can relate to. MEntity: It is not lonely without the hocus pocus, it is informative. It is a part of what you still wish to bring to your healing efforts: how to bring the magic without resorting to tricks. Maureen: Yes – that is what I want Michael MEntity: Part of your healing, then, may include that same point for your recipients. MEntity: Magic is not theatrical. Magic Tricks may be, but not magic. MEntity: Magic is not glamorous. Magic Tricks may be. MEntity: Magic is experiential. It is not impressive. MEntity: Magic is generated, not presented. MEntity: Magic is alive, not given life. MEntity: Magic is the capacity to transform one's life in the blink of perception, not necessarily in the blink of an eye. Maureen: Yes! MEntity: Your recipients are the magicians, and you are the assistant, and the magic they may seek is possible, not through theatrics, tricks, and glamour, but through real effort, patience, and treatments. Maureen: That's helpful. That's a great way of seeing it MEntity: The same magic that was used for the creation or allowance of ailments is the same magic that can relieve them of those things. If it is a physical trauma, then physical "magic" must be utilized. If it is an emotional trauma, then emotional "magic" must be utilized. And so on. MEntity: For example, if someone slams their fingers in a car door, one would want immediate medical treatment to save those fingers and stitch them up. One would not go to a psychologist, in that case. Maureen: Yes – lol MEntity: When your recipients come to you, if there are physical ailments, they must understand that a physical specialist or remedy may be in order to address that, even if only in terms of symptoms, but that your aim is to help relieve, reverse, or transform the subtler elements involved. Maureen: So as a healer – it's good to learn discernment to suss out the "body" or bodies that need to be worked on/with. MEntity: It may be helpful, but not necessary. The only body that would need to be recognized as beyond your aim is the physical body, at least in terms of physical symptoms or traumas. Maureen: I see MEntity: Your work may help support the repair and healing of that body, but you are not an EMT. Maureen: LOL – no I'm not MEntity: It must be understand by you and by your recipient, if you choose to encourage understanding, that you are a facilitator, a healer, and not an emergency repair center.
  10. [Excerpt from a private session originally published on January 4, 2011] [Martha] I’ve found a number of references in Troy’s channeling to Imagination, and how we don’t understand the possibilities of its use, regarding our multidimensional selves, parallels and probabilities. Are there levels to Imagination? Some deeper aspect of the teachings? [Michael_Entity] Imagination is the highest frequency that a Sentient body carries as a tool, and this could be said to correspond to the Causal Body of that fragment. The greater the use of the imagination as a tool, the more aligned one is with his or her Entity and its general intentions/agenda. The imagination could be said to have 3 functions, rather than levels, and those would be REPRODUCTIVE, CREATIVE, and INVOLUNTARY. Reproductive Imagination includes memory, crafts, recounting, recall, recognition, routine, etc. and even body maintenance. Creative Imagination includes ideas, art, solutions, potential, possibilities, anticipation, etc. and even body healing/recovery. Involuntary Imagination includes fear, instinct, defense, reactions, depression, psychoses, pathologies, etc, and even illnesses. Each function often overlaps with another function. In the context of accessing Parallels, the Reproductive Imagination comes into play.
  11. December 4, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [M Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will respond to your questions as they are presented, and we will begin with “freyaisis.” [freyaisis] Michael, would you give us a mini energy report for the end of the year and starting a new year? Thank you. [M Entity] It appears to us that most of our students, let alone the general population, are finally feeling the pressures of the energy of the Chief Features for this year: Self-deprecation/Arrogance. October through December tends to emphasize a reflection on the life, on the year that has just passed, and this can sometimes lean one toward the energy that collectively builds as so many fragments contribute to the energies that are the chief negative features for the year. In this case, collectively, there is an emphasis on the seeming personal lack of importance, inadequacy, flaws, differences, outdated wounds, self-esteem, etc. When the “season of the Chief Negative Feature” comes up, this is not to overwhelm the fragment with a negative outlook on his or her life, but it is intended to allow group support and empathy during a time of reflection. For all fragments there is an average of two weeks of this reflection during the 3 months of emphasis on the chief negative features. This reflection happens in waves and groups. Groups of fragments carrying common themes, resonance, agreements, karma, etc. will then drop in energy as this reflection manifests, creating a wave that will then spread outward from fragment to fragment. Other groups will have done the same, leaving a wave of reflection to then “hit” you at least once more before the “season” is over. Quite often, your particular group may have had very little need for reflection, but the waves of other groups will still instill a sense of melancholy, at the very least. Imagining several pebbles dropped into a body of water with the ripples crossing and affecting other spaces (interference patterns) can give you an idea of how the Chief Feature season works in its effect. It is very difficult to “escape” the effects of the Chief Negative Features. Many can avoid or dismiss the other Overleaves as they are emphasized earlier in the year, but all who are alive will face their fears every year in some way, some how. This is part of the agreements made with the self and with the species as part of the cycles of incarnation. We share all of this background with you at this time as this sheds light on why there are such “highs” and “lows” during the “holiday season.” It may be simplistic to describe the energy as “rippling,” but this helps understand the sense of waves that propel you or drop you during this time. Regardless of your own chief negative features, this season will emphasize the questions and self-assessments of how comfortable you are with your own inadequacies and flaws; how comfortable you are with your efforts to be vulnerable and intimate. It could be said that one of the greatest themes we have seen this year is in the examination of all issues regarding intimacy and how one feels in the presence of others. The questions will not be answered by your claiming success or confidence, necessarily, but in your honoring and being present with where you are with those issues. The self-consciousness, depression, lack of enthusiasm, introspection, will not be alleviated by pouncing on the issues and resolving them, but in saying, “yes, that is where I am with that.” The season of Chief Negative Features isn't for resolution, but for acknowledgment and embrace of where you have come in the time of your one year. The search to resolve the issues is from where overwhelm and depression can come. The irony in all of this is in that this is a time to CELEBRATE how far you have come, however little or much that is. In the weeks ahead many of you will feel the effects of these “ripples” and the “highs and lows” and it will only be through your kindness that you can find your footing. We cannot emphasize that word enough in light of the energy that prevails during such a phase of reflection: KINDNESS. It will always be your choice to do so, or not to do so, but we can easily suggest, and we do strongly suggest, that your kindness is needed toward yourself, and toward others. When you feel at your worst in the weeks ahead, or when you see others behaving in ways that you feel are out of character or interfering with your own world, practice Kindness. We will define kindness as “perceiving innocence.” The cruelest, most vile of all of you, is truly innocent beneath the wounds that compel behaviors and choices. Innocence is there. The most we can offer for your year ahead is a preview of what appears to be the overleaves, at this point in the patterns. These are subject to change, but we will share as accurately as we can at this point. ROLE: Sage CENTERING: Emotional/Intellectual GOAL: Acceptance MODE: Passion ATTITUDE: Spiritualist Chief Negative Features: Impatience/Martyrdom. We will update these in January, of course. [alomarsmom] I would like to know if there is any validity to “mediums” who purportedly bring messages from the “other side”. I presume they mean the astral plane. [M Entity] There is a great deal of validity, but in two different ways: one way is in the obvious, which is that the medium is in contact with the consciousness that is the relative, friend, or loved one of the living. This is rare, and when a medium is in that kind of contact, the messages rarely make sense to the living, as the perspective from “the other side” is then so drastically different from when that fragment was embodied. The other is more common in that the medium is psychically receiving echoes from the lives of the deceased as they still resonate in the energy of the living. This practice connects through a kind of template that belonged to the deceased and from that template, certain key words, phrases, images, feelings, etc. can be extracted as comfort for the living. There is validity to the presence of “the dead” as they “walk” about among the living, but the ability to see them is rarely a practical perception as a means to act as a medium for the living to have contact. A few of our channels are highly aware of “the dead” within the days of their lives. This perception is really only effective in helping those specific, disembodied consciousnesses, and their cases have little to do with needing contact with the living. These disembodied consciousnesses find their own way, with or without the intervention of the living. [SweetHeartSage] i am wondering what cadre 1 entity 7 are here on earth to do ? [M Entity] In various ways, Entity Seven of any Cadre carries a theme of Inculcation. They are usually the “teachers” or “imprinters” or “extractors” of the Cadre, meaning that their lives can quite strongly impact those around them in ways that can range from inspiring to invasive. Those from Entity Seven can often be repetitive about the approach to life, never seeming to change their patterns, as they practice this theme of Inculcation. Those who practice Inculcation can often inspire those around him or her, but those who do not find their niche, their pattern, or a comfortable direction of repetition, can often move Eclectically, adding a sense of invasiveness and imposition to the lives of those around them. Anyone from any Entity Seven must search for and implement a pattern within the life that lends meaning to their days, or they begin to chaotically scatter their energies in desperate searches for that pattern, rooting themselves in one destructive pattern, while randomizing their efforts in all other ways. Those from entity 7 either embrace their true uniqueness or they spend their lives aching for recognition and being deemed “special” by someone or something that they have also deemed “special.” Our answer does not describe what entity 7 is “on earth to do,” because there are no “assignments,” but we do describe the common themes that are shared by those in that position and how that may show up in the life. However, we can clarify that Cadre ONE, Entity Seven will carry a theme with an emphasis on teaching all about LOVE, either through Inculcation or through Eclecticism. All Cadre ONE, Entity Seven's would carry that similar theme for their Energy Ring. Bear in mind this “teaching of Love” does not mean “hearts and flowers and unicorns and butterflies” are presented to the world from Cadre One, Entity Seven, but rather that all challenges revolving around the reality of LOVE will be a theme. Many from Cadre One, Entity Seven are striking, but many are as strikingly unlovable as they are strikingly lovable. [Llawryf] Is my current “flare” responding to the Boswellia (a gum resin) I am taking? It seems to be, but appearances can be misleading. If there are 7 stages of healing, where am I at? [M Entity] There are actually 12 stages, or facets, or Healing, and you would appear to be 8th Stage as described by a state of Discipline. This stage is one wherein the education, insight, information, instructions, direction, etc., that have been found in relation to that which seeks to be healed is sifted through, tested, practiced, and thoroughly examined as to how all of it will help, hinder, or heal. Discipline is merely the practice of making conscious choices; therefore, your response to the “flare” is providing you with feedback as to your experience of your treatment. This information/feedback is heightening your sense of consciousness around the choices relative to this healing. Your “flares” will probably resist treatments until the root of the issue is uncovered, however well the Boswellia appears to affect them. We would suggest that the message in these flares, and your efforts to treat them, is a direct reflection of your own Personality's efforts to constantly manage and “put out fires” in life, which then seem to only make more emerge. As you are in the Discipline stage/facet of healing, we would suggest being highly aware of how you respond to “little fires” in the life; how you make choices as a means to reduce the amount of drama; how you navigate your plans as a means to control; and how all of this, ironically, escalates the very thing you wish to reduce. Your next stage of Healing will come in the form of Anchoring, wherein you will sit with the information you have gained during Discipline, embracing it, finding comfort, security, acceptance, grounding in the truths you have uncovered. As this question was of a highly personal nature, we will conclude our response here. We believe what has been shared may also be of help to others beyond the question. [NOTE FROM TROY: I have not read or heard of the 12 Stages/Facets of Healing, so I am excited to get more information about this, if anyone has any! Otherwise, I will be channeling an article about it ASAP] [tkmppi] What would be helpful for the Hopelessly Loved of the HL/HL monad? [M Entity] For those who are in a Hopelessly Loved/Hopelessly Loving Monad, the greatest challenge for the Hopelessly Loved is in the management of the guilt and shame and sense of extensive responsibility for the Hopelessly Loving. What can help the Hopelessly Loved part of the Monad is in the allowance of the full experience of being WANTED. The Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad is not truly about LOVE, but about WANT. It is “not your fault” that you are Wanted, nor is it your “fault” that you do not Want that person in the same way. You are not responsible for the definitions of Want for other fragments. More than understanding your own position within the Hopelessly Loving/Loved Monad, understanding the point of the other side can help tremendously. The Loving/Wanting part of the Monad is learning a powerful lesson in self-worth as it is defined INTERNALLY, rather than EXTERNALLY. The Loved/Wanted part of the monad is learning a powerful lesson in RESPONSIBILITY as it is defined by personal boundaries, rather than by the boundaries of others. Knowing that you are not Responsible for the Worth of another is liberating, even as you may still feel kindness or compassion for the Loving/Wanting position. It is okay to feel kindness/compassion for the other half of your Monad, but you do not help close the monad through guilt, shame, or obligation. This monad is closed when both fragments grasp their own ability to choose SELF as a first step toward truly Loving/Being Loved. [H2OSprtLvr] [question was lost from the transcript, for some reason, but paraphrased, it read something like: “Do the various channels work with different parts of the Michael Entity and this is why there seems to be different answers to the same questions?”] [M Entity] Our Entity responds as a whole, regardless of the various fragments within our entity with which a channel may have Agreements. We are never in disagreement or discrepancy across the entity as we respond through our channels. When a channel is one of our Primary Channels, our answers will remain consistent through each channel, however “flavored” by the Personality of each channel. Our Secondary Channels may have a tendency to “spin” the information to the effect of support for their own teaching and perspective of life. Our Tertiary Channels rarely access our information accurately, but only access our energy as a means to support their personal experiences and personal expression. Posing a question to three Primary Channels may result in three “different” answers, but they should not be in conflict. Posing a question to three Secondary Channels may have a theme, but clearly hold conflicts and discrepancies. Posing a question to three Tertiary Channels would result in elaborate discrepancies and a tendency to direct the student to believe in various “reasons” for dismissing these discrepancies, rather than encouraging a resolution or correction of discrepancies. Many of our Tertiary Channels rely heavily on the “energy” that they can convey, rather than the validity of information. Energy is difficult to question as it is subjective, whereas information can be questioned. We can be called upon by 1000 Channels and our information or energy is not segregated among the channels. It is the same, regardless of accuracy or discrepancy among the channels. All of this being said, it is not unusual for a Primary Channel to flaw the expression of our information; fatigue, inexperience, insecurities, personal issues, and specialization can cause a skew our contact with you. This is acceptable to us as we do not wish for any of our students to lose the ability to discern, question, or validate. Discrepancies among Primary Channels do exist, but are a result of isolated issues, rather than long-term agendas. Entities have been described by some of our channels as being designed with “three sides:” one side of Truth, one side of Love, one side of Energy. Those “sides” are also the emphasis used among our varying channels, with Truth an emphasis among our Primary Channels, Love as an emphasis among our Secondary, and Energy as an emphasis among our Tertiary. Our Primary Channels access all three “sides,” while our Secondary access two “sides,” Truth and Energy; and our Tertiary can access only Energy. We do not claim that any one channel's emphasis is better or more valid than the others. We merely respond to your question as a means to help understand how we can seem to be so fragmented in our responses among the channels who claim to channel us. While we are NOT fragmented or segmented among the channels, our channels can act as facets of us, allowing only specific angles of expression. We must add that questions such as this are highly encouraged. We are rarely invited to share in this manner among our students because of the politics and fear among the students and channels. It is Good Work that you choose to rise above the condemnation of courtesy and ask the difficult questions that have the power to heal many of the rifts of misunderstandings perpetuated throughout our students and channels. Understanding our relationships and methods among our channels does not create hierarchy, nor can it be used as such, anymore than Soul Ages can be. We will conclude here. Good night/day to each of you.
  12. 12 COMPONENTS of Healing In response to the 12 Stages of Healing: The Stages are relative to the 12 forms of Support that one must bring into the process of healing. We will clarify those here as succinctly as we can: MEntity: These "Stages" are not sequential as much as they are "components" that must be included eventually for full healing. MEntity: In light of that, we will refer to these as the 12 COMPONENTS of Healing. MEntity: Love must be present in the process of Healing, and this means a kind of acceptance, or surrender to the reality of the illness or challenge. The resistance often causes the pain, but acknowledging the validity of where you are in your health can help transform the properties of it. MEntity: Knowledge must be present in the process of Healing, as one must understand what the ailment or challenge is, and eventually what can be learned from the experience. MEntity: Compassion must be present in the process of Healing, as it is important to allow for it to be a messy process, a tedious process, an inconvenient process, etc. Compassion is the kindness necessary for those moments. MEntity: A Teacher/Teaching must be present or identified in the process of Healing, as there is always something or someone that can be found to have a message in the experience. This is different from Knowledge in that Knowledge is a general grasp on the nature of the ailment or challenge, and a knowing that the experience can offer learning. MEntity: The Teacher/Teaching, however, is the actual "lesson" that one feels he or she has extracted from the experience. MEntity: Appreciation must be present for full healing to be experienced, as every illness or challenge has as part of its origins a missed realization, something taken for granted, a need for increase of gratitude for some part of the self, the life, relationships, etc. MEntity: Nurturing must be present for full healing to be experienced, and by this we mean that it is directed toward something else along with the self. Often this is done by taking care of a plant, an animal, or a project that requires some kind of attention in this way. MEntity: Laughter must be present for full healing to be experienced, and this is rather obvious to some. Laughter is not necessarily the "best medicine," but it is one of the best. MEntity: Structure must be present for full healing to be experienced, and by this we mean the adherence to any practices, disciplines, rehabilitations, medications, etc. MEntity: An Anchor must be present for full healing to be experienced, and by this we mean that at least one person is identified as someone who will be with you through all or most of the process of recovery. Of course, this includes yourself, but to have someone to depend on can help accelerate healing tremendously. MEntity: A Healer is the most obvious that needs to be present for healing to occur. Someone, even if this is the self, is identified as a facilitator of your recovery and healing that you feel is competent and effective. MEntity: Awareness is a component that must be present for full healing, and by this we mean that sense begins to be made of the entire experience in a way that allows for it to move away from the body and the present. MEntity: This is different from Knowledge and Teacher. MEntity: Think of Knowledge as the Foundation, Teacher as what is built upon that foundation, and Awareness is the bigger picture that includes those. MEntity: And finally, there is Inspiration. This is the realization of what one will do for the self, for others, and for the life upon recovery or stabilization. MEntity: Keep in mind that these 12 Components play into every challenge or illness that requires a recovery, from the flu to grief MEntity: Of course, we synopsised our descriptions for the purposes of this live chat, but we think this will help to have the whole set of 12.
  13. NYC Live: 08/10/2011 Healing Relationships Note from Janet: This material was transcribed by Elaine and Eric from the live video. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here and we will begin discussing the subject requested on healing relationships. Bear with us as we come through. The first thing that we will say in terms of healing relationships is that all relationships of significance, in the sense of those relationships that can cause or be affected by wounding, are those that are formed by your relationships developed through your mode in your overleaves. Understanding your own mode, and your overleaves, and how wounding occurs in relationships, why it occurs, and what can help to heal that wounding, can greatly increase your capacity for taking responsibility in those relationships that have been wounded, in those relationships that do suffer from lack of understanding or lack of solution. Because the more you understand your part of the equation in a wounded relationship, the more control or empowerment – or whatever word you would like to use – the more you have the capacity to change that relationship. You cannot control the other person who is involved in the relationship, of course. But taking responsibility for your part, even if it is only to the extent that you understand your part, can have an effect on the other party involved, helping that individual rise to his or her own understanding and sense of responsibility for his or her part in the relationship. All relationships, of significance in particular but relationships in general, are merely relationships with your understanding of yourself. There is no relationship that you navigate that does not specifically cater to your learning more about yourself. All relationships, but particularly those of significance, are relationships with your equals. The fact that you may think that someone is worse than you or better than you, or even unattainable or inaccessible, signifies or equates where you are with yourself. This is often referred to as reflection, and relationships truly are that: a reflection of where you are with yourself. In other words, the state of your relationships often reflects the state of your own internal relationship. It is rare that one who is feeling whole and liking oneself suffers from broken relationships around them. And the same goes for an individual who is divided within and not particularly accepting of himself or herself. He or she will tend to have relationships that reflect that: broken or disappointing or challenging and so forth. So looking at your mode can help you to understand what you expect from relationships, what you are attracted to in the first place in terms of establishing a relationship, and understanding what has become wounded in terms of that relationship. Thus, you can gain your footing in navigating your relationships and raise your capacity for choice, which is the only true tool that every individual has at their disposal. Even when you think that you do not have a choice in your relationships, you do. Before we get into the modes, again we will emphasize that you cannot control the other individuals who are a part of your relationship. To think that understanding your mode and making efforts to heal whatever has been wounded is in some way a strategy for manipulating the other party into a state that is more acceptable to you will not work. The information we will share with you today helps you to understand your part to heal it and to make room for the other individual, or individuals, involved to make their own choices. So the aim here is not to change your relationship as much as it is to heal it. And we use those two words very carefully, differentiating between the intent to recapture someone, or to capture someone, or to reclaim someone, or to change someone, versus heal what has been wounded and then to reset the invitation for that relationship. Resetting the invitation can lead to changes, but the goal will not be to change it. It will be about healing the relationship, and from there your acceptance of the choices of the other individual or individuals involved should be easier to accept and allow. So we will first ask, so that we can focus on the modes of those present, what everyone’s mode is. We think that we have a room of observation and passion. [Audience] And power. [MEntity] Those are the three? [Audience] Observation passion and what? [Audience] Power. [Audience] Who has that? [Audience] Unclear [Audience] A couple of persons are observation though. [Audience] But “secretly...” [Audience] But “secretly” they have power mode. MEntity: So what we will do is start with passion, speak to observation and then speak to power. And if time permits we will cover all of the modes, and if not in this session, we will make sure that the details are shared with Troy to include in a transcript of this session. Those in passion mode tend to be attracted to relationships that transcend time and space. There is a natural quality inherent in those who have passion mode to see beyond any limitations of time and space, and to develop relationships that transcend those, not only in terms of recognizing fragments from previous lifetimes, but also allowing room for the changes and fluctuations that living may bring to a relationship, so that time and space has no bearing on the quality and depth of the relationship. Those in passion mode tend to see an individual from a higher perception, from a bigger picture / standpoint, and does not constrain those relationships to those restrictions of time and space. So passion mode tends to be attractive to those who allow room for those fluctuations in time and space. And for those who do allow this, the relationships last the entire lifetime, to some extent, in some way, and the depth and intimacy is not altered by any divisions caused by time or space. We will circle back to speak about the wounding in a moment Observation mode tends to be attractive to those who can truly see who you are. Those who have observation as their primary mode, tend to be attracted to those who see past all their personas and allow, not just the surface to be seen or rather make known that just the surface is seen, but all of what that individual is. Those in observation mode can tend to do this for others: they can see past the surface, and depending on other factors in the overleaves, those in observation mode can tend to see the best in people or the worst in people, but it is always that they see more than what is shown. So the relationships that tend to be formed and nurtured are those that allow room for all aspects of that personality to express itself, to be seen…and not just seen, but clearly made known that you are accepted despite what you may have thought should not have been revealed about yourself, or that you struggle to hide. Power mode tends to be attracted to the beliefs or the truths of another person. This is often difficult to discern and, depending on factors in the overleaves, can cause some complications in developing and sustaining relationships, because the exposure of an individual’s personal beliefs and perspectives of life often requires exchanges to reveal that. If the overleaves are not in line with the effort to uncover the beliefs of another individual, those in power mode can often sit back and wait to find out what those beliefs are, what those perspectives are, and often miss those opportunities for deeper relationships. However, one of the ways that power mode attracts those to whom he or she can develop those relationships is by being as present as possible, so that he or she is revealing of his or her own personal beliefs in a way that acts as an invitation for those relationships to sustain and nurture. Again, if this is not pursued, it can cause a gap between the self and development of relationships of significance with others, because the key here is in the fact that it is an individual’s truths and perceptions that are attractive to those who have Power mode. Before we circle back and talk about the wounding that can occur, do these resonate with those of you who have those modes? [Audience] Yes. [Audience] Yes, but I have a question. I was wondering if people who have the same mode are generally attracted to each other, based on what you said. MEntity: Yes, modes can tend to be attracted to each other. They can also often be attracted to their compliment on the same axis. But there is no rule for attraction, because the mode, and to whom you are attracted in a lifetime, often depends on what you seek to experience in your lifetime. And by “you” we mean your essence, and if the personality is on board, then the personality as well. Your mode will act as the means by which you relate to and attract another, but it does not automatically attract. [Audience] Thank you. MEntity: Now we will circle back, and speak of the wounding that can occur. Wounding occurs if the mode moves into the negative pole. The causes of this could be any number of things, so we will not go into the causes for why an individual’s mode may fall into the negative pole. This will be something that you can figure out on your own. We can give some clues as to what we think it might be, but it will be your responsibility to determine that on your own, because it may be a large issue, or it may be specific to that relationship. More than likely, it is a larger issue, especially if you’ve seen this occur more than once in various relationships. Then it would be a larger arcing issue that has more to do with yourself than anything. In other words, it would exist with or without those relationships to emphasize it. Passion mode often experiences it’s most wounded-ness in a relationship if it has fallen into the negative poles and suddenly demands or expects time and space to be complied to or adhered to in order for that relationship to have any significance or meaning. If the expectations of time and space are not met, wounding can occur. The phrase “expectations of time and space being met” can be interpreted many different ways and we leave that to you to apply to any of your relevant relationships that have suffered this form of wounding. But in most cases of those with passion mode, they tend to feel the most hurt or affected in a way where relationships are damaged if there is suddenly a restriction or a condition relative to time and space, because this is counter to their nature. It is counter to everything that Passion mode is about, which is the transcendence of that time and space, and the relating to each other based on soul age and relationships of your essence that goes beyond this lifetime. To suddenly have to restrict a relationship to fit those conditions, and they are not met, causes wounding. And like before we will speak of the wounding and then circle back and speak to the healing that tends to work in those relationships. Observation mode can experience the most wounding in a relationship if the individual feels he or she is suddenly not seen, is completely rendered insignificant or invisible in the eyes of someone who previously was seeing you in your entirety. Or the wounding can occur if, in the pursuit of the relationship, the craving and the longing to be seen is not met, and the individual seems to be unable, or incapable, or unwilling to see all of you. Then the wounding can occur. What we’re speaking about today is true wounding. We are not speaking to the disappointments and every day arguments and dismissals. We’re speaking of what truly is experienced as a wounding for the individual. And those with observation mode can tend to feel the most wounded when they suddenly feel invisible. We’ll also point out that all fragments will be able to relate to the various forms of wounding. We’re speaking to the inclination that each individual will have towards developing a relationship and experiencing wounding, but you are not locked into those. These are simply inclinations that tend to be very consistent. Power mode tends to experience the most wounding when there are lies involved: delusion, deceit, or some form of contradiction to what is expressed as a truth, and acted upon differently. Dishonesty. As you can see all of these things may harm any individual, and their relationships, but they tend to be consistently deeply wounding to those relative to the modes associated with them. For power mode, then, this can translate into trust issues. And often, when it comes to power mode, once an initial wounding has happened, it may take a long time to get to a place to allow the experimentation with trust again, whether with an individual or as an individual in terms of accepting new relationships. Now before we move back to what can be healing, we will ask if these descriptions are resonating with you [Audience] Yes MEntity: So now we will speak to what we think might be healing to these modes when they feel wounded. For passion mode, and for our students who have been with us a long time, you may understand the concept of sliding on the axis, so that if your particular overleaf trait is in the negative pole, and you are stuck there – or feel you are stuck – you can pull from / consciously behave from the positive pole of the mode that is paired with you, which will automatically move you to the positive pole of your own nature, your own overleaf. This is called Sliding. [Audience] This is the same concept as with the Goal. Is that correct? When you’re in the negative pole with your goal? MEntity: It can be any overleaf, any axis. Yes. Whatever your overleaf is, if you are stuck in the negative pole, if you consciously choose to behave from the positive pole of the partner, you will automatically pull yourself into your own positive pole. We set up this system so that it is not just a description of yourself, but a map for how to get out of any binds that you feel you may have gotten into. Sometimes the negative poles are perfectly acceptable, and we do not teach our system so that you are consciously striving to escape the negative poles or to avoid them. They are a part of your Personality, they will always be there. However, they do not feel as good and they do not prompt you to feel as alive as your positive poles. So an individual will tend to prefer the positive poles, and your clarity and your openness and your happiness tends to be proportionate to where you are in your Personality between the positive and negative poles. So understanding how to do that can help you make your choices. But if you are in a negative pole, it does not mean you are bad or you are doing something wrong. So in terms if passion mode, what can help heal the wounding that might occur in your relationship is to use what is attractive to the partner mode, in this case, reserved. Reserve Mode is attracted to the past, to an individual’s history. Therefore, if an individual who has passion mode feels wounded in a relationship, it helps to address the past. It helps to talk about where the relationship is in relation to its history. Often this can help put into perspective everything that has existed as a part of that relationship and in that understanding can free it again from the constraints and restrictions and conditions of time and space, especially when the individual realizes that there is nothing about time and space in particular that can take away from the meaning and inspiration of that relationship. By time and space, by the way, we do not speak superficially on showing up on time or being close by. But sometimes those in passion mode can have strict rules about how another behaves in his or her own space. And therefore, those conditions can cause wounding or deflections of relationships. You understand? Those in passion mode, or are you asleep? [Audience] (laugh) I’m not asleep. Yes. I think I understand, yes. MEntity: We will state it again. When conditions get placed on time and space, it does not mean that an individual must be on time in order to feel as if the relationship is good, or that you must be close to each other in order for the relationship to be good. It can also show up as having control or conditions over how an individual behaves when he or she is with you in time and space. [Audience] Isn’t that kind of universal? Like if someone behaves badly, it would be annoying in your space. I mean, I don’t… [Audience] I think it feels normal for us. That’s the whole point. MEntity: Yes, that is the point. [Audience] How can someone not be (unclear). The concept of not being annoyed with the way someone behaves in your…when they’re with you doesn’t even make sense. MEntity: Those in passion mode who can lean towards the negative pole can tend to have the highest standards for how behavior is controlled in his or her space and time. [Audience] That would be me. [Audience] That would be me to. [Audience] Yeah, I am willing to admit that. [Audience] I didn’t quite understand what you said about reserve? MEntity: Those in reserve mode…before we respond we want to make sure we understand your question. You are asking how it fits into the healing? [Audience] Yeah, I mean reserve is the complementary mode of passion, is that correct? MEntity: Yes. [Audience] So yes, how does reserve connect? MEntity: Reserve feels that a relationship is flourishing and tends to be attracted to relationships that are attracted to each other’s history. So for instance, those who have reserve mode will tend to be attracted to a person’s history, not necessarily who that person is now, but who they have been, and this often refers to past lives as well. Those in reserve mode can often find themselves in relationships with individuals who have no obvious reasons for being in that person’s life, but the reserved mode recognizes them from previous lives where relationships were significant, and therefore can attract them in for significant relationships now against all judgments. So in terms of healing for passion mode, returning to the history of a relationship that has been wounded can often provide the healing required for freeing that relationship from those conditions. For instance, if an individual is feeling wounded by the behavior or choices of a significant other in a relationship, it can help to remember what has gone into the relationship up to that point, and to pay attention to that history instead of losing it to the present where behavior is not complying to your conditions. [Audience] That makes it so much clearer. MEntity: Did this answer your question? [Audience] Yes. It makes it clearer, I think. MEntity: We are speaking to Kerrin as well. [Audience] Yeah. Yes, so reserve is another mode, it is not the negative pole of passion right? MEntity: Correct, yes. Passion and reserve are both complementary, inspirational axis modes. Returning to the concept of wounding and what we had said earlier, often those who are in the negative poles of their reserve or passion modes, and seeing this reflected in relationships, is often because of wounding that is occurring within in regards to their sense of inspiration. If an individual does not feel inspired, or is not doing anything that feels inspiring, or is not in any way allowing a relationship internally to be what is inspiring, it can often be reflected in the relationships, and the relationships take the brunt of the expectations for providing that inspiration rather than pulling it from within. [Audience] What is the negative pole of passion? MEntity: Identification. [Audience] What is the definition of that? MEntity: Those in passion mode who go into the negative pole can tend to lose their boundaries between themselves and whatever it is that they have focused their passion on. The relationship then becomes an extension of identity, rather than a way to actualize the self, a way to learn more about the self, a way to grow. Instead, it is just an extension of the self. Therefore, whatever is happening in this individual’s life, if it is not complying with what you would do, issues can arise. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes MEntity: To put it in simpler terms, an individual in passion mode…if he or she were to cook you dinner and serve it – a plate of spaghetti, let’s say – those who eat it might say “I love this,” or “I do not like it.” Passion mode in the negative pole will hear “I do not like you,” or “I like you.” They have lost their boundaries between themselves and the spaghetti. [Audience] Yes. [Audience] Yes, I completely understand that. (Unclear) MEntity: Observation mode now. The healing that often comes to those who have been wounded does not come from pushing the other individual to see you more clearly, but that you make the effort to see the other person more clearly. It is often the case that when you feel the most invisible, you have also lost perspective of the other person. So those in observation mode would do well to practice, or to put effort into, seeing the other individual or individuals beyond the surface or, more specifically, beyond what you think is defining that other individual at the time. Because observation is a neutral overleaf, it has access to all of the other modes, and it can tend to slide to any of the other ones. Usually there is a habitual means of sliding that a neutral overleaf will develop over the lifetime. So, as we cover all of the modes, you may find that the solution can be helped and supported by wherever you slide. For instance, if you slide to passion mode from observation, your relationship may find support by freeing that relationship from the conditions that you have, or the expectations you have placed on it in terms of time and space. In other words, you may be thinking that an individual should be processing things faster, or keeping up with your speed of processing, when you may need to free them from that restriction. Or, sliding into reserve, it may help you to look to the history that is a part of your relationship, rather than just at the myopic version of your relationship currently. So that is how that would work if you have a neutral mode. The sliding to these other modes would only be for support, because ultimately the goal will still be for you to expand your perception, or your capacity to see the other individual more clearly, as a means of healing the relationship. This does not mean that you will be seen by that individual, but expanding your capacity to see another individual more clearly is not a strategy or a manipulation for helping them to see you more clearly, but rather for you to be able to see their innocence, to see their capacity for making choices to the extent that they are capable of this time, for their capacity to see to the extent that they can see, which may not include all of you. Sometimes you are not seen, not because what is see-able is ugly, but because the other individual simply cannot see. And by your being able to expand your capacity to see that, it frees you from locking into that struggle to be seen and continuing the wounding. The healing that can come for power mode is to utilize what is a part of caution mode’s attraction. Caution tends to be attracted to the security of a relationship, to the safety that another individual provides, or to the sense of safety that is developed within, as a result of the relationship, or to the confidence of another individual. Caution is strongly attracted to that because caution mode tends to work on developing that sense of confidence, that inner security, and so forth. So when power mode feels distrust and feels divided from the capacity for inviting relationships, it can often be healed by developing trust in the self, by developing confidence in the self. If there is a relationship that has been wounded as a part of a blow to trust, that wounding can be healed by the realization that it has no effect on your own sense of self. It has no effect on your sense of trust in you. Sometimes when you enter a relationship, and this is in particular with power mode, there can be a strong wounding occurring if you feel duped, if you feel that something has deceived you or misled you. This can develop into a distrust in your own perceptions, your own capacities to discern and to navigate. Understanding that the choices of another individual, and their capacity to express their truths consistently, has no bearing on your capacity to do that for yourself can bring about the healing for the wounding that may have occurred as a result of those experiences. Going back to observation, we’ll say that what tends to be the case on a larger scale, as we said with passion mode, it tends to be an inspirational issue that can often affect relationships and bring about wounding, because that issue is already inherent in the individual. For the observation mode, it tends to be an emotional – as well an inspirational – but a personal emotional issue that is carried around with you: some form of emotional wounding for which you are waiting for someone to see and to accept and to embrace, a brokenness to some extent. So for those in observation mode, addressing that brokenness, that sense of wounding that is carried around with or without a relationship can greatly increase your capacity for managing many relationships that suffer blows in the future, because often those blows in the relationships speak to or trigger than wounding, that emotional wounding that has been carried long before the relationship came to suffer blows. Observation is related to the emotional rather than the assimilative and those of you who understand our system will see that this may seem like an anomaly, but it is not. In terms of how the mode works in this realm of relationships, it is an emotional mode, whereas reserved mode is the instinctive or the assimilative mode, and we can go into that apparent anomaly another time if it is of interest. Power and caution tend to carry into relationships…With or without relationships these issues may exist, and that would be what we might describe as contradictions within. With or without a relationship, often power mode walks around carrying a confusion about what he is, where he is going, what he is doing, and lives in this divide of how to be present in the world, and what that means. So in short, they have not defined their truths yet. They have not found yet what feels comfortable as a truth, and until that individual does, it can often show up in relationships as distrust and of course develop into distrust within. Because if you do not have that navigational tool of perception and truth to guide you, you feel as if you can’t even trust yourself. So what we’ve described so far in relation to the modes and relationships, wounding, healing…have they all made sense to you? [Audience] Yes [Audience] I have one question. It’s to come back to the way to address the wounding and about going back to the history of a relationship. I find that I agree with that in a sense that I do go back to review the history of a relationship, but I actually find myself getting stuck sometimes in that past or getting resentment or…is that linked to something else in my makeup or is that an aspect? The way I am going about looking at the past…it’s creating a sort of stuckness in the past. MEntity: Well there are two responses we can give to this. One is that yes, you can…those who are in passion mode who then look to the past for the healing by recognizing “maybe this relationship isn’t wounding me as badly as I thought it was, just because it’s not complying to my expectations currently. Look at the history. It’s been wonderful.” However, if it has not been wonderful, then that same negative pole that has caused you to restrict your focus on the current time and space can then look into the history and hone in on one of those past experiences that contribute to supporting why you are having trouble or feeling wounded currently. So if you think of it in terms of looking back across the landscape and then suddenly seeing that there is a trip along the path, passion mode can hone in on this and say, “See? Here’s why I don’t…this is why I feel wounded, or this is why I am bitter.” But the key will be not to search the history for proof, but to see the history in it’s wholeness, and that would be the difference. When passion mode looks to the history, it does not serve it well to look for proof to support the present disappointments, but rather to look at the overall picture of the history in fairness. If that picture reveals to you that the current relationship is simply not one that is healthy, and one that is necessary to step away from, then you are still healing the wounds, because you are seeing that larger arc of history and saying, “There is a pattern here that dominates, and it is not so great for me.” Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: So when we said that were have two responses, one is that if you are honing in and looking for proof to support your disappointments now, then you know that you are possibly not doing the work of healing. However, if you are looking at the bigger picture and seeing that there is a pattern that is not healthy, then you are doing the work and you can make your choices from there. [Audience] Yes, thank you. [Audience] Does frequency play a role in that process? MEntity: It plays a role in every process. [Audience] In the speed of healing? MEntity: Yes. Those who are on the lower end of their frequency will tend to take a lot longer to heal. It’s not a rule, it just simply tends to be that way. [Audience] Do they tend to hone in more on evidence to support their disappointments? MEntity: Not necessarily, but the length of time for healing seems to be consistent in terms of a higher frequency person can process and heal faster than a lower frequency person. But in terms of searching the history, a high frequency person can also tend to hone in on past issues that support complaints currently. However, it could be said that the lower frequency makes the exploration of the past slower in terms of processing, which makes those instances appear more clearly than to a person with higher frequency. Does this make sense? [Audience] Yeah. MEntity: Any more questions? [Audience] I have a question from Geraldine. She would like to ask about the mode differences between one's casting vs. ones chosen for role and personality if the casting modes have equal influence? MEntity: We do not understand the question. [Audience] What is a casting mode? [Audience] Maybe the mode that is associated with your casting? MEntity: No, we are speaking of the actual overleaf that is part of your Personality design, not the ones associated with your role or casting. [Audience] ::Discussion (not included):: MEntity: Your role and your casting, and their association to the other overleaves that are on the same axis has no bearing on this particular discussion. Any more questions? Any relationships or examples of relationships, that you would like to discuss can also be bought forth if you choose to. [Audience] There is so many in the room right now. [Audience] Oh yeah, it could be hours. [Audience] Where to even start? MEntity: We cannot solve those or heal those for you, but we think that what we have shared today might help shed light on your part of the equation that can then increase your capacity to choose what to do from there. [Audience] I do think it was very helpful. I mean, to remember why you are in the relationship to start with, like all the great things that you have or had. It seems like such a simple thing, like why didn’t you think of it. You know what I mean? [Audience] I have a question. Everything that you’ve been discussing so far was, from what I understand, from the vantage point of you healing a relationship with another person. Everything that you have discussed, can you apply that if you are trying to heal a part of yourself or if you’re trying to heal your own relationship with yourself? Like, would part of the problem or the infighting be that, if you are of a certain mode, are the positive and negative poles of that mode conflicting or trying to fight off one another? MEntity: Well what we can say to that is that you are correct in your assessment that applying this to relationships within will also be affected. So that, if you are in passion mode for instance, and you are seeing this played out in your relationships – where you are finding yourself wounded by the non-compliance to the constrictions which you may have placed, or the conditions you may have placed on other individuals in terms of time and space – you can turn that within and find that maybe you are also imposing those upon yourself, and that you are thinking you have limited time in order to be who you are, or that you may have to have certain things or conditions in place in your life before you can be who you are, or to find that inspiration, and so forth. Looking at all of this conditions relative to time and space within can free you to heal those inner conflicts. Or in terms of observation mode, there may be elements within the self which you refuse to see that you are expecting others to do the work of seeing and bringing to the surface. And therefore, it could be that you are ignoring a part of yourself or that you consistently do that as a method of relating to yourself: ignoring certain feelings, ignoring certain thoughts, dividing yourself in certain ways in order to feel as if you are a whole person when in fact you only feel whole if you keep this over here and that over here, and so forth. Of course we are speaking metaphorically here. So the for instance, in terms of the overleaf itself, the negative pole of observation is surveillance. The positive pole is clarity. So when an individual is using the positive pole of observation, it means that the individual is able to see the life in a 360 degree fashion. There is clarity about where you are going, who you are, who other people are, what they are doing, and so forth. There is a sense of participation in life and being able to see where you are going. In the negative pole of surveillance, the individual then divides himself from life as a means of seeing things more clearly. And so it can feel as if you are living in life, but watching it through a glass window. You are somehow no longer a part of the very life you are living, a great disconnection. So this can occur within as well, where you become your own observer, rather than your own experiencer. You are watching yourself live your life rather than living it, and it would do you well to bring more of your self into the picture that you so often simply watch as a means of healing that divide within. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: If there is any validity to what we have shared, it should have hit home quite personally. As we said, there is no hard and fast rule associated with these, but there is a consistency that can be explored with relevancy to your relationships within and without. We will quickly add in perseverance mode and aggression mode so that it is completed in our discussion here. Perseverance mode tends to be attracted to physical relationships, to the physical presence of another person, to their physicality, how that individual shows up in their own skin. Perseverance mode can often, in fact, use sexuality as a form of relating. But perseverance mode truly connects to the physical presence of another individual. Aggression mode, on the other hand, is attracted to the totality of an individual: not just their physical presence, but the totality the individual’s beliefs, the individual’s choices, the individuals behavior, the individual’s physicality, their emotional realm, their physical realm, their intellectual realm, their spiritual realm. Aggression mode tends to look at all of it in terms of relating. [Audience] That is so interesting, because my father is in aggression mode and he just recently, apparently, told my mother that she is everything that he’d ever wanted. MEntity: And we think that she is attracted to him for the security and safety. [Audience] Yeah, she’s Caution Mode. [Audience] What’s Caution mode’s one? [Audience] It attracts to security and safety. MEntity: So we will leave those. We can explore them further, but we wanted to throw that in. And the wounding of course would come from extensions that can be extrapolated from the words that we have described. That, if an individual physically alters, for instance, in a relationship with someone who is in perseverance mode, it can be devastating. And by physically alter, we mean there can be indiscretions, or cheating, or ill health, or the lack of productivity. Anything tangible about the individual becomes a measurement for what is meaningful. For aggression mode, of course, the wounding may come from an individual becoming fragmented, divided, scattered, not present, not whole. Those in aggression mode have very few relationships because of this, as well, because there are very few fragments on the planet who are not fragmented. But, because these two particular modes are not present, we will not elaborate upon them. We will conclude or wrap up our discussion about his if there are no more questions. [Audience] I would a question, then. In terms of my relationship with my mother, everything you said fits in with that except that I’m not quite sure what concretely…I guess I want a little bit more concreteness about how to go about improving the relationship, because I definitely feel that I was wounded at some point in the not being seen aspect and then feeling the violation of time and space in that relationship throughout, starting a certain point in my childhood. And it comes up in our interaction, and of course I can’t decide not to interact with my mother anymore. I don’t know if there is something… MEntity: What is your primary mode? [Audience] My mode is passion and her mode is observation. MEntity: Knowing the other individual’s mode is helpful, or can be helpful, because this will give you clues as to what the other individual might need. In this case, as you’ve already discerned, it might be that she does not either feel seen by you or completely accepted in what you see in her. But it also may be – and this is something that will be important for you to understand if you chose to heal in this relationship – is to understand that this particular fragment may never truly like what she sees about herself as well, that there may be parts of her that she refuses to see, and, because you see them, you are held at bay, or given challenges, or struggled against. Do you understand that part? [Audience] Yeah, I’m sorry. I am surprised, because I thought it was about more the wounding, the feeling that I wasn’t seen, but you’re saying that the wounding is on both sides or just on her side? MEntity: If your mode is passion, that is where you want to focus what we shared with you so far. If yours were observation, then your issues would be about being seen or not being seen. However, in your case it, would be more about the relationship in terms of passion and the wounding that occurs in relation to passion, because that is your experience of the relationship. In other words, your mother is an extension of you, and therefore if she is not complying with the expectations that you have of what a mother is, then you may feel the wounding. [Audience] So the wounding is for all modes when you are not seen, or just for the observations mode? MEntity: Just for the observation mode. However, as we said before, there is no rule. Those in passion mode can also experience the feeling of not being seen. For instance, Sages in general have this issue and struggle with it across many lifetimes. Those who have arrogance can have issues of being seen or not being seen, those with self-deprecation. So it is not specifically linked to, or isolated to, a particular mode, but in this context of discussion, in terms of wounding and how individuals relate, this is a clue as to what might be causing the wounding and what could heal the wounding. So in your case, you would focus on the passion and the information we shared relative to that, but if you want to understand where your mother is coming from, then you would want to understand how observation works, because then you have insight into how she is experiencing the relationship. Do you understand? [Audience] Yeah, so the focus on my own passion would be then for me to focus on the time and space. MEntity: Yes, letting her be free from the constraints of your expectations about how she should be now, how she should have been, how present she is, how close you are. Letting her be free from that can help you heal. It may not help you have a better relationship with her, it may not help you to encourage a closer relationship, but at least it will help you heal, which, like we said before, resets the invitation for a better relationship if it is possible. In some cases, it simply is not possible to get what you want from a relationship, even if it’s with a parent. [Audience] Thank you. MEntity: Knowing that she is in observation mode, you can use that to help with the invitation for a better relationship by consciously allowing yourself to see, or expressing to her that she is okay the way she is; that you accept her as she is, not necessarily what she has done, or your responses to it, or your feelings of wounding, but that you are okay with who she is; that she is not just a mother; that she is more than that. She is a person. She is an individual who had a life before you and you are a part of that life, not her life. Being able to see and express that you embrace the totality of her may help her to feel more her own or invite her own form of healing. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: But the work starts with your own, for all of you. So it is not necessary for you to know the modes of those with whom you have struggles. If that were the case, no one would heal. And it is not even necessary for you to know all of this information for you to heal, it just helps. All of you would find your own way with or without this information, or not. We will wrap up the session then here, if there are no more questions. UNRELATED QUESTIONS: Left Out

    Ask Michael - October 5, 2014

    Ask Michael Live Chat October 5, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley 12:22:07 PM ClaireC: Hello, Michael. There have been studies conducted on the power of group prayer and meditation that would indicate that sick people who are prayed/meditated for have higher recovery and healing rates than those who do not receive prayers. Can you explain what is happening here, are the results of the studies incorrect or is it truly beneficial to pray/meditate for someone who is seriously ill? MEntity: The context of the kind of "prayer" and "meditation" has a profound effect upon the outcome of such studies. First, if there are religious elements involved, the effects are often quite contrary to beneficial. If the recipient is aware of the prayer, there can tend to resignation to some idea that some power will save the day. This resignation is different from the surrender that one might have to the trust of medical care or nurturing. Resignation is a disconnect from the life force. So religious prayer is often more harmful than beneficial. MEntity: If the fragment is not aware of the prayer, it has little effect. ClaireC: How about TM? ClaireC: That's not religious. MEntity: When "prayer" and "meditation" is moved outside of the realm of religious resignation to a higher power for saving the day, then there can come to be some benefit. If the recipient is aware of the intent of another's prayer or meditation, the Personality may allow in this subtle networking of nurture. MEntity: This subtle networking will never override the individual's capacity for healing, nor usurp it, or impose healing, but the individual can harness that nurturing for the sake of healing. ClaireC: I'm thinking more in terms of the patient "receiving" healing energy. MEntity: If the individual is not aware of the intent of these more beneficial prayers or meditations, there is little effect. MEntity: The patient never truly passively "receives" healing as much is the patient lets the network of nurture become a kind of safety net of strength and support. MEntity: In other words, kind words of encouragement directly to the fragment vs informing the fragment that kind thoughts and feelings are similar. MEntity: What happens when there is benefit is that there is Cording, and the Cords (energetic bonds of resonance/communication among fragments' chakras) act as a safety net, but not as miracles. MEntity: It should be noted that one cannot cause illness or harm from "prayer" or "meditation" either. MEntity: If one's well-being were so easily affected by the thoughts and feelings of others, many would not live long. 12:42:31 PM cfalde: Diane posted a channeling a few years ago about improving eyesight in later years. You stated in there that those born with poor eyesight were beyond that discussion. Please briefly discuss. MEntity: Some eye conditions are a result of poor light, poor muscle strength, improper use, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, overuse, repetitive conditions, etc. so these can often be helped and even reversed. However, those with genetic conditions may not be so easily helped with mere vitamins and exercise. It would be the equivalent of saying that a person born with no leg could grow a leg just by taking a vitamin or dancing more. It does not work like that. cfalde: True. MEntity: However, there are improvements to altering even the effects of one's genetics, and as these improve and one has access to the capacity for altering these, then one is not confined by those genetics. MEntity: In that case, one could seek out competent professionals who are offering benefits of altering the effects of genetics. At this point, there are few options, but they are improving. MEntity: Replacements of parts of the eyes seems to be the most common possibility at this point. cfalde: lasik and other therapies too. MEntity: Correct. 12:50:46 PM Janet: When a nexus occurs and parallels merge, what is the effect on the memory of a personality who existed in both parallels? Are any memories lost or changed due to the merging of parallels? Or would the merged personality retain memories of experiences from all original parallels? MEntity: Janet, all memories remain intact, but depending on the more immediate necessity and environment, one will transpose over the other. In other words, whichever memories serve the new timeline best will come to the surface. However, there are times that may come later when a conflicting/contradictory memory will come up, and this can be perplexing. It is not a "perfect" system because all memories need to be accessible for the variations of choices. Janet: Oh that’s what I thought — that choice was still key. MEntity: If one set were to be wiped out, it would not be fair to that parallel Personality, but because these remain intact to some great degree, they can come to be bizarre artifacts in memory. MEntity: Some illnesses of memory, such as dementia, can bring up a multitude of parallel memories that seem random and conflicting. MEntity: But are, in fact, often quite "real." 12:58:29 PM Maureen: I've been wondering recently whether or not one can have true (not blind or naïve) acceptance, without "understanding" (...of whatever). Many of us, not just those of us with the Goal of Acceptance, would like to learn how to best, or to better, move towards more Acceptance (+pole Agape). Also, I’ve been noticing how it feels to accept or to not accept – when I experience “acceptance” it feels more expansive and open-ended while non-acceptance feels more conclusive or closed. Your comments please. MEntity: There are 9 Circles of Acceptance that help one to understand the variations in how one learns to Accept. The outermost, or 9th Circle, is the most anonymous and "blind," with a sense of allowance for differences, distance, difficult variations and obstacles to intimacy. For example, you do not have to know every fragment from a culture you have no sense of resonance with to accept that these are "people, too." MEntity: As the Circles grow "closer" to the center where you are, then the importance of intimacy, resonance, and understanding grows. MEntity: It is not that it grows so much as it simply becomes more personal. MEntity: It is still intimacy, understanding, and resonance when acceptance comes in the 9th Circle, as well, but it is from the broadest grounds of empathy you have. MEntity: You can accept that people who are vastly different, far, and stranger to you are still Human and that you are related in such a way because you know you are Human and that you are also strange, distant, and different from others, too. MEntity: The Positive Pole of Agape for Acceptance translates into an "affection." MEntity: One can only have affection for that which is accepted. MEntity: All fragments outside of your 9th Circle will not have a sense of affection about them or for them. MEntity: Every fragment can only truly accept into the 1st Circle one to three fragments at a time, but this does not mean one is not accepting. There are 8 other Circles where one arranges one's capacity for acceptance. MEntity: For those with or without the Goal of Acceptance, the aim for Agape/Affection is always relevant. To do so, one would always seek to choose any possibility of empathy over defense. MEntity: Choosing empathy does not mean condoning, and choosing empathy does not mean putting someone in your closer circles of acceptance. But even if that person can be put into your 9th Circle, you are doing well. 01:19:56 PM brian_: Hello Michael, could you please give a larger description of the Solar body type nature? MEntity: The Solar Body Type Nature is as equally consuming as it is giving. It is a delicate economy of taking and giving. There is a kind of transparency in the Solar Body Type that prompts it to find and fulfill identity in or through those who "orbit" about her or him. MEntity: They can be experienced as a constant source of energy, enthusiasm, and delight or as a volatile and overwhelming heat that must remain distanced. MEntity: Aside from the Lunar Body Types, these are the most immature and underdeveloped of the Body Types, in that there is a kind of dependency upon other Body Types for the sense of position and place. MEntity: The Solar Nature can be as child-like and innocent as it can be childish and temperamental. MEntity: Because the Solar Body Type can be so attractive as a source of energy and enthusiasm, they can also be subject to great projection and expectation by others. MEntity: The Solar Nature tends not to be able to hide very well in a life because of the equation of giving and taking in relationships, events, experiences, etc. There would likely always be those who expect of the Solar Nature, and the Solar Nature may find she or he expects of others. MEntity: Because of the rather consuming nature of Solar, its presence is often rather minimal in any combination, only serving as an Active/Positive redirecting of energies for variation of combining planetary influences. 01:40:15 PM Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like further elaboration of the Saturnine Nature please, much like last time with Venusian and Jovial and this time with Solar. thanks MEntity: The Saturnine Body Type is the only other Active/Positive body type, and as such is quite focused on rather optimistic, broad visions of DOING. It is correlated with the Priest for this reason. Those with a Saturnine Body Type in Nature will tend uphold grand visions against which all of existence is measured. This generates within them a rather painful streak of demanding perfectionism. MEntity: Saturnine Nature often almost desperately craves a sense of vertical movement, growth, change, evolution, and so even when the life is without challenge, there is a constant barrage of interpretation that there is challenge. MEntity: Even if the body is not tall in terms of a Saturnine Appearance, a Saturnian Nature will bring a sense of "tallness" to the perspective of the individual so that there seems to always be a towering ideal that is carried above the heads of everyone around the body. MEntity: The Saturn Nature can easily fall into a kind of sanctimonious stance in the life, if not careful to consider if his or her challenges are valid. MEntity: The Saturn Nature will always do well to determine if he or she is being challenged, or if he or she is simply being challenging. 01:58:21 PM MikeClev: Could you please expand our knowledge about Saturnian as Health Body type? Thanks. MEntity: The Saturnine Health aspect of the Body Type comes in relation to the anterior pituitary, which, like the Nature, can be regulator of growth, or stunter of growth, or an accelerator of growth. MEntity: In its healthy states, Saturn helps the body to manage all functions related to growth, including reproduction. This gives the body a great range of endurance and longevity due to this management of energy and hormones as they are used by the body. MEntity: In its unhealthy states, Saturn can move out of regulation and into inhibition or overproduction, which leads to issues of instability in the infrastructure of strength in the body. This can show up as high levels of stress and even bizarre and distracting sexual urges and compulsions to help "burn off" the energy. MEntity: Unhealthy Saturnians tend to carry about a kind of "seething" range of unexpressed anger that can wreak havoc on the body. MEntity: In healthy states, it can be one of the most productive body types of all, as it can endure great treks of focus in the use of the intellect, body, and/or emotions. MEntity: But because of that durability, the Saturnine Health can end up having to learn how to say no, how to be clear, and own his or her strengths AND weaknesses. MEntity: Or there can come to be cumulative consequences on the health. 02:07:45 PM Carlotamaria: Hi Michael, I would like to ask if you could explain the Love Monad as completion of a Heart Link. MEntity: The Love Monad can take as many lifetimes as it takes and is under no restriction for timing. For the Love Monad to be completed, the fragments involved will revisit in symbolic (and something literal) terms every Monad that has led up to the Love Monad. So the fragments will revisit the Master/Slave, Slovenly/Meticulous, Matedness, Parent/Child, Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved, etc. MEntity: These passages through the ingredients of experiences that are leading toward full, unconditional love, would come as arguments, misunderstanding, impulses, compulses, all moving the relationship through toward a full embrace of the best and worst of one another, as well as the self in relation to that person. MEntity: Eventually, the Monad comes to a close when each has come to realize that there is nothing that "matters" more than the truth of the other's existence. MEntity: In other words, all of those experiences came and went, but each of you stayed as a consistent element of existence, and this is truer than the temporary dichotomy of any version of your relationship. MEntity: We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
  15. MICHAEL SPEAKS 091408 Open Floor Michael Entity: Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a response to the first question. QUESTION: I can see how anger can be useful (to show you when your boundaries have been breached), but Cruelty would seem to have no use. Why does it exist, and where does it come from? Michael Entity: In the same way that Anger is a defense, so is what you might consider to be Cruelty. However, it is important to note that "Cruelty" is often a relative experience. "Cruelty" is often not an intentional by-product of someone's action or choices, but a fragment who is disappointed might assign the label of "cruelty" to the event. For instance, when one fragment can legitimately sense the necessity of a separation within a relationship, but the other fragment is deeply attached and terrified of solitude, the choice of the fragment to move on can be interpreted as "cruel," when, indeed, it was one of the most loving choices the other fragment might have experienced to-date. COMMENT: Oh, I see. I guess I was thinking of cruelty as intentionally trying to hurt another. Michael Entity: It is very important to differentiate the intentional act of Cruelty from the interpretative act of defense against disappointment. Acts of Cruelty are often not just the result of intentions to hurt, but can be the result of neglect, denial, justification, and apathy. With all of that being said, we can now more clearly respond to your original question of "why does it exist," and "from where does it come." The legitimate act of Cruelty, whether intentional or not, is a product of choice, of course, but a product of choice that is entirely self-preserving. Not "self-serving," but self-PRESERVING. There is a difference. Self-preservation is an act of survival and fear, whereas Self-Serving is an act of giving/receiving. Cruelty, then "exists" because there are a myriad of ways in which the fearful body, mind, or heart can turn for survival purposes when these feel threatened. Even the most intentional, drawn-out acts of torture as a form of Cruelty would still be generated from this very same thing. Although all Chief Negative Features can bring about forms of Cruelty, the most active, intentional forms of Cruelty can generate from Arrogance and Self-deprecation, and the most passive forms of Cruelty can generate from Impatience and Martyrdom. In terms of "Cruelty having no use," we would agree. Cruelty is an unnecessary byproduct of fear and has no value beyond the false sense of defense. QUESTION: Would you say anything about healing our bodies when they have been experiencing physical and emotional cruelty? Michael Entity: The response to your question might find more relevance on an individual basis, but what we can say in general is for any fragment who has experienced Cruelty, whether real or imagined, 50% of the healing would come from the comprehension that the Cruelty had nothing to do with you, or your value, your meaning, your worth, your choices, your past, future, etc. In short, it has nothing to do with you at all. Many who experience Cruelty, real or imagined, healing is delayed by the constant questioning of WHY. Most often there is no answer to this question that would satisfy you. The focus for healing would be more beneficial in the direction of HOW, as in focusing on your rebuilding, your personal compassion and kindness, and your support. QUESTION: Recently it was channeled I have a surrogate task companion because my TC is not available. What reasons would a Task Companion not be available so that a surrogate TC would need to be available, and could the surrogate TC relationship last across lifetimes. Michael Entity: All fragments have surrogate Task Companions and Essence Twins. There is a spectrum of reasons for why a fragment falls into unavailability, such as death, distraction, change of plans, lack of memory, lack of interest, lack of skills or tools required for the task at hand. An Essence cannot predict the outcome of the choices that a Personality might make within a lifetime, and often those choices are counter to original intentions for the lifetime. As the soul grows older, rather than generate Karmic Ribbons as a result from the impact of another fragment's choices that might alter your plans for a life, it is simply more practical to have a surrogate step in. Surrogate relationships do tend toward consistency and are usually drawn from the closer strings within your circle of support (your Support Group of 12). For instance, a 3rd String Knowledge Position might be your Surrogate Task Companion, and a 2nd String Love Position might tend to be your surrogate Essence Twin. If these terms are unfamiliar to you, Troy can direct you to resources for exploring that Support Group details further. QUESTION: Is it possible to run out of surrogates (if the surrogate is unable to be there for some reason)? Michael Entity: Surrogates do tend to still fall into some kind of mathematical resonance with you in a way that would be similar to the fragment for whom one is stepping in. It has happened to all of you here that, after the life was entered, "no one was around." Those lifetimes can tend to be surprisingly delightful or terrifying, much in the same way one might feel if one were to plan a trip to the mall, or upon arrival to school, and finding oneself in a complete "free-for-all." Those lives are rare, especially after the Baby Soul Age cycle, because the skills for creating a Personality and lifetime becomes an art for Essence, but it has happened to some Older Souls. QUESTION: I would like clarification re: the 9/12 "Trues". There are 9 Trues PLUS Life Task/True Work, but the 9 Trues are actually grouped in threes with the True Work to make 3 quadrates. Does that mean there are 3 different aspects to the Life Task/True Work depending on its quadrate, thus making 12 Trues, 3 of which are variants of True Work? or is it 9 Trues plus 1 True Work/Life Task? which would make 10 trues . . . Michael Entity: Both angles of interpretation would work. Technically, there are 9 "Trues" made up of 3 Triads of support for the Life Task in various contexts of "Personal," "Community," and "Planetary." The phrase "True Work" was a kind of shorthand as the original concept was delivered in a consistent way to describe the Personal Quadrate and was interpreted by some as indicating a separate concept from Life Task. However, it is valid to say that the Life Task can be described through various suggestions under a title of "True Work" and each could be more specific to the different Quadrates. In other words, the Life Task would remain the same as an overall arc of description, but methods of action for manifesting the Life Task could be described in terms of True Work on a Personal level, a Community level, and a Planetary level. QUESTION: so in a sense all 9 Trues combine together as supportive elements of the Life Task which is the summation of the 9 Trues? Michael Entity We describe the three Triads as each supporting the Life Task, but the ultimate pattern is one of progressive, though non-linear, evolution, or pyramidal evolution. Any system of 9 is a pyramidal form of evolution in our system, such as the 9 Needs. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Personal Level, the "base" is built from the Personal Quadrate, or Pillars of Vitality. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Community Level, the base is built from the Community Quadrate, or Pillars of Harmony. When a fragment's Life Task tends to be on a Planetary Level, the base is built from the Planetary Quadrate, or Pillars of Transformation. However one "builds" or visualizes this pyramid of evolution, there will be tiers of development that eventually address all Quadrates. We have much more to say about this subject, but will move on for now. NOTE FROM TROY: Michael also shared this image for me as a way to understand this "pyramid," so I mocked up a copy as best I could. For some of the advanced students, note that the Life Task/True Works are Action; Play, Health, and Core are Expression; Rest, Spirit, and Love are Inspiration; Study, Home, and Gift are Assimilation. See attached image or the image above, if it shows properly. The image isn't static, either, but rotates as necessary or depending on a person's emphasis. [QUESTION]: How does serious mental illness, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, manifest in relationship to Roles and Overleaves? Are they caused by the Overleaves or are the Overleaves masked by the illness, until the illness is successfully treated? Michael Entity: No "mental illness" is caused by the Overleaves themselves, but understanding the Overleaves can help one to manage "mental illnesses." Most breakdowns in Personality however, when not due to any physical damage or developmental distortions, are usually Centering issues. COMMENT: I am going on the research that says these are physical illness. Michael Entity: Schizophrenia, for example, is the inability for the emotional elements of a Personality to communicate with one another, tending to be an Emotionally-Centered, Moving Part issue. Bipolar diagnoses are often the issues of Intellectual Centering, Moving Part. "Mental illnesses" that are diagnosed as being sourced from chemical imbalances are still connected to the Centering issues, and it can be a valid form of healing to use drug intervention on that chemical level to bring about a functioning that can then be sustained by the body in the long run. When physical damage or developmental issues of the body are a cause for a "mental illness," then this is usually a direct result of choice or allowance by Essence and is part of a greater theme of experience. In that case, the Goal is usually involved as the primary consideration, but is not the only consideration, of course. In all cases of legitimate mental illness, it is the result of breakdown in communication among the various facets of the Personality, requiring a third-party bridging for effective communication to be returned. There are a number of ways a fragment can focus a lifetime on issues that require comprehension of interconnectedness, dependency, and the importance for allowing help, so mental illness is one of those ways. Again, this is a question that can be more effectively answered in relation to specific individuals, but we believe our response here will offer some relevance in general. QUESTION: You have told earlier about suitable ways to meditate for people with emotional/intellectual and intellectual/moving centering. What about the rest: intellectual/emotional, emotional/moving, moving/intellectual and moving/emotional? Michael Entity: In nearly all cases for effective meditation, it is not so much about the Primary Center/Part, but about the Centering that is most often neglected. So an Emotionally-Centered/Intellectual Part, and an Intellectually-Centered/Emotional Part could both do well with a MOVING-CENTERED Meditation. Whatever your Centering/Part, you might find the most effective meditations to be in the realm of that third Center of Gravity that is not usually accessed. Moving-Centered Meditations can include anything that involves the Body, from taking a simple walk, to Tai Chi and Yoga to dancing the night away. Intellectually-Centered Meditations can include anything from crossword puzzles and brain teasers to such focused meditations as Transcendental Meditation, to good night of hilarity and comedy. Emotionally-Centered Meditations can include anything from a good listen to music that resonates with you, to cathartic expressions such as can be found in Primal Therapies, to night of tears and intensity at the movies. So a Moving Centered/Emotional Part or Emotional Centered/Moving Part can both do well to get out out the crosswords, brain teasers, or make their way to the nearest comedy venue. The point of meditation, in general, is to bring about a full functioning of all of the lower Centers, so it will always be most effective to focus first on that Centering that is most neglected. However, if one wants to just feel good and bring some awareness to one's natural, habitual processes, one can focus on a meditation that is resonant to the Primary Centering. Rather than compile a list of meditations for each Centering, each of you can consider this fairly accurately on your own: if it tends to emphasize the Body, it can be used as a Moving-Centered meditation. If it tends to draw up and emphasize the Emotions or feelings, it can be used as an Emotionally-Centered meditation. If it tends to bring about emphasis on the Intellect or thinking, it can be used as an Intellectually-Centered meditation. The difference between an experience being just another experience and its being a meditation is AWARENESS. When you are dancing, listening, or laughing, for example, bringing your awareness to the moment can instantly turn it into a kind of meditation. QUESTION: I'm curious about the "coincidence" of someone dying on the birthdate of a loved one; for example, my grandmother died on my birthday, and my mate died on his mother's. My feeling is, it's like a tip of the hat, a sort of spiritual wink, from one soul to another — if it's possible to generalize. Could you comment please? Michael Entity: "Meaning" is always the result of one's creating it, not finding it, or discovering it. Even when the intentions of someone is clear, the interpreted meaning on the receiving end can be quite different from those original intentions. When one dies, one will die on a day that many MANY will be able to claim as their birthday. With that in mind, we would say that when a person from your intimate circle dies on a personally relevant day, there is often an intention there. What that intention is can be very different among those instances, but we have seen that it is valid that there is usually an intended message there. QUESTION: There has been written and discussed much about that the mobile phones are overheating and making damage to our bodies when much used. There are of course also those that deny facts about any effect in one way or the other. How does the energy from the mobile phones influence on our bodies or the head when we use them? :call: :hypno: :) Michael Entity: Though the use of what you call "cell phones" or "mobile phones" is fairly recent in your history, we have not seen any effects of any significance that could be considered dangerous to the physical body, at least in terms of waves or rays, however some have exploded, causing harm, but that is a different category of threat, and minimal at that. The rays of your sun in one day can have far more impact in "negative" or dangerous ways than a lifetime's use of a cellular phone. The use of a microwave for extensive cooking can have more long-term damage to one's body than the use of a cellular phone for a lifetime. QUESTION: So the heat and dizziness some feels in the head when they hold it for a longer period close to the ears is minimal of distortion? Michael Entity: We base our response on the reports we can see relative to damages or harm caused by cellular phones, but we see none beyond those of the explosive variety and some cases of interference with regulators, such as "pacemakers." The heat is legitimate, but the dizziness appears to be individual reactions to holding up the arm for extended periods of time, or walking and talking at the same time. Other reasons can tend to come from the audio effects on the ear drums as many cellular phones can tend to have poor translation from device to ear. We offer our response as reflective of what is on record at this time, but we do not offer it as a conclusive report. The devices in question are undergoing a number of changes that will continue to require monitoring for effects. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  16. This session took place on June 8, 2008. [Michael Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here. [QUESTION] I see a lot of folks who have bad dreams in my work and have found that while interpretation can be useful, people often find relief just by imagining a better ending for the dream. I don't remember where I learned that (maybe from you?). Anyway it seems to bring relief from nightmares. What is the mechanism by which this works? is it just that I say it will and people believe me? Or is it something astral? or simply the subconscious mind doing its thing? All that seems to be required is a good imagination and being in "alpha" waves. [Michael Entity] There is a level of dreaming that is primarily symbolic and these dreams are where issues from the waking life are being processed or examined. It does not require a fragment to be asleep for those symbols to be meaningful, but the symbols that are recalled from the dream are often the most directly-significant to the issues. For most fragments, the dream state can help resolve these issues being played out symbolically. This symbolic level of dreaming is very similar to how fragments experience and interact on the Astral Plane anyway, but for those fragments who have not resolved the issues being played out in symbolic dreaming, then bringing in the consciousness of the waking personality can help break the worrying cycle that has led to what some describe as "nightmares." This method of resolution is a natural strength for most fragments, which is why it so naturally occurs during sleep where the Personality dissolves to its default nature of strengths and weaknesses. Nearly all fragments assign symbolism to emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical elements of the life, though this symbolism is often lost to the conscious personality (waking state). When you, QUESTIONER, direct a fragment to use those symbols and experiences from the dream in a conscious way to bring about a break in the cycle and to direct toward resolution, it is not only resolving the issue in many ways, but bringing about an alignment between the conscious and subconscious selves. This same method can be used for those who are not having nightmares or remembering dreams: Examining an issue within the waking state and breaking it down into symbolism, then manipulating those symbols into a way that brings about a sense of direction, closure, or change can help implement those very things in the reality. For instance, a fragment may be feeling obstacles or patterns that keep him or her locked into poverty or survival modes. This fragment might choose a symbol to represent himself and the obstacles or patterns, adding in a current idea of a solution, and manipulate these into a way that displays a symbolic solution. Keeping that symbolic sense of solution at hand, in mind, heart, or even visually depicted (drawn out), can help to break the current symbolic pattern. [QUESTIONER] cool! bypasses the intellect setting up barriers I would think [Michael Entity] Your assessment is valid, for it is the Intellect that often keeps movement locked into an undesirable pattern. This is by no means true in all situations, but in many, it is. [QUESTION] Could you give an example of this conscious working with symbols such as the poverty or survival mode idea? [Michael Entity] Questioner, the symbolism would have to be specific to the individual, so our example will not be universal. For instance, one example might be a CAT to represent the individual, a BALL INSIDE A CIRCULAR TUBED TRACK with just a bit of a slit along the inside ring of the tube for reaching at the ball, to represent the pattern/obstacle. The current situation has the cat swatting at the ball over and over and often in a frenzy while the ball is forever locked inside that circular track. No amount of swatting or maneuvering is going to change this ball's circular roll within the tubed track. This person might then change the pattern by realizing that the symbolic pattern of the ball in the track means that everything about what the cat is doing is never going to get anywhere beyond chasing current ideas, actions, and feelings in circles. This situation would either require intervention (maybe a human to come along and break open the track to get to the ball) or to simply walk away to a completely new adventure. For the sake of this example, it might seem to be the most directly implementable action to simply walk away from the current ideas and actions. This person might then imagine the cat walking away wistfully and finding a small tree with accessible branches bearing dollar bills, all dangling in the wind. The cat is seen as having an hilarious and playful time jumping and swatting at the branches and knocking down the dollar bills into a pile. This person, then, might keep that image in mind when he or she begins to feel trapped again within patterns that are obviously not working so that he or she can be open to other, more accessible, inputs and possibilities within the reality. Keep in mind that these symbolic plays are NOT the solution in themselves, but are symbolic shifts toward internal solutions or breaks from patterns in how one is perceiving and interpreting reality, which is then a powerful step toward finding and creating external "real life" solutions and breaks. We would also suggest examining why this person might have chosen himself to be symbolized by a CAT, looking at all that a cat means to that person and applying that insight as a way to discover how he or she sees the self in relation to the issue. We will point out here that this topic could be an entire discussion in itself and one that might be worth examining in the future. [QUESTION] What is meditation? Is it just silencing the internal chattering, or is something else involved? I recently had some personal advice in meditation from Michael, but trying to follow it, I started wondering what meditation actually is. [Michael Entity] From our perspective, "meditation" is a word to describe the work through a triad that leads to adaptable balancing among all centers. This triad could be described as: EXAMINATION, IMPLEMENTATION, REALIZATION. We will describe this in detail now. First, a fragment would Examine the life to determine which Center is seeming least used, least effective, least understood, etc. For simplistic purposes, we will contain this to the 3 Primary Centers. So if one were to see that the MOVING Center is being used the least, or is the least effective, then this would determine the direction of IMPLEMENTATION. This would mean that your "meditation" would be of a Moving-Centered sort. Stillness or stereotypical concepts of "meditation" would not work for this fragment. This fragment could then Implement a moving meditation into his or her days. This moving meditation could be anything that includes the body and movement, which means that meditation could be anything from exercise to dancing to simple movements of the body while seated. Once a method has been Implemented, then the practice of this on a regular basis will lead to REALIZATION, which simply describes the effect of that particular meditation. In this case, a balance within the self that has taught the body how to call upon its moving center in a more effective way. The Implementation stage is the most important stage as it requires some amount of commitment for Realization to come about. The entirety of the experience from Examination to Implementation to Realization is "meditation." In other words, Meditation is not simply a separation from your routines (examination), nor is it simply the clear focus of intent during parts of your day (implementation), nor is it just the benefits on the other side of implementation (realization). It is a triad of effort. [QUESTION] what would be an example of using Emotional as the Center for Implementation? [Michael Entity] Listening to music that stimulates the emotions could be good for some fragments, while watching dramatic movies could be good for others; still others might find a walk through beautiful environments to be a means for implementing Emotional; exploring art could be another example for some. [QUESTION] So it doesn't matter if I think of this and that during implementation, as long as I move? [Michael Entity] The more consciousness one can direct toward that which is being implemented, the greater the Realization. So if one is implementing Movement, one can think and feel whatever one wishes, but allow the consciousness to fully embrace the body, the sensations, the experience of the movement as clearly as possible. It cannot hurt to be as focused as one can be on the implementation, but it is not necessary to block other natural elements within you. [QUESTIONER] I thought so [Michael Entity] Those who experience the Realization will find that one can think, feel, and act in a way that each does not overshadow or block the other. This is another topic worth exploring, if our students wished. [QUESTION] I want to know about the 4th internal monad and how one would know if they were on the way to manifesting their true personality [Michael Entity] The easiest way one can gauge whether one is moving forward through the 4th Internal Monad in a way that is a positive transition, or to gauge whether one has completed a 4th Internal Monad in a way that was in the Positive Pole, is to ask one, simple question: DO I LIKE ME? To the degree that a fragment can honestly say that he or she likes himself or herself, is the degree to which the 4th Internal Monad is being completed, or has been completed, in the Positive Pole. The Positive Pole of the entire 4th Internal Monad is Self-Realization, which is the experience of being present with who you are and generally liking who you are. The Negative Pole is Acquiescence, which is the feeling of being forced or succumbing to "who you are," and not really liking who that is. In short, if you can answer the question DO I LIKE ME? with an answer of "yes" to any degree, then you are generally manifesting True Personality to that degree. [QUESTION] There are different ”schools” teaching how to do psychic readings/how to read energy fields/do energy work. When doing a reading it's sometimes being used different energy techniques for different issues coming up in a reading. For instance: 1.Create and destroy, 2.Removing fear energies, 3.Delete programming, 4.Erasure and 5.Astral healing. If possible I would like Michael make a comment on the use of these techniques and the fact that some of these schools, even today, try to keep some secrecy around the energy techniques. [Michael Entity] Many "schools" who claim secrecy over their techniques are run by, and determined by, Baby Souls. The techniques involved would be beneficial to other Baby Souls, and to some Young Souls, but probably quite ineffective for Mature or Older Souls to use. This is because the techniques and beliefs that make these work are mythological and superstitiously rooted. If one can adapt these Baby Soul concepts into a more mature language and method, then the schooling might not be lost on the Mature or Older soul, but this would have to be kept in mind along the way. For instance, the idea that one can heal another is a Baby Soul concept, but the reality that one can help another to heal himself is a Mature concept. Even on the most physical of levels of intervention, a physical doctor can only do so much in treating a fragment and the fragment "being healed" must ultimately do the healing. Tending, or intervening the impact of wounds is one thing; but healing is always a personal matter. The older souls know this. We mention this as an example because many of the more secretive techniques and schoolings teach as an undercurrent a kind of power over others (whether for "good" or "bad,") and this ultimate power is simply not valid. If your technique for healing is considerate of the dynamic that needs to be in place between healer and wounded, with an holistic awareness, then the technique would be the most effective and valid. Techniques that leave out the choice of another tend to lead to Karma. [QUESTION] I have recently been involved in discussions with a few of my friends regarding political and governmental systems regarding which are the most effective. My friends would gladly describe themselves as “libertarian” whereas I cannot completely proscribe to such an ideology, if only because their description of “libertarianism” seems to give too much authority to the private sector and private interests; of which I am not entirely comfortable. They would likely label me as “socialist” or as “bleeding heart liberal” if they didn't know me better! I guess the questions are: Is there or are there ideal governmental system(s) or ideology for the current average soul age we are in currently, based on what Michael has perceived from other sentient beings? What do these systems look like? Perhaps what the United States and the rest of the world is currently experiencing in their governments are pretty typical for our current soul age development? That would be my perception at least. Also, what do typical governments look like on worlds that have a majority of old souls? Or do they even have governments? [Michael Entity] The politics of any given region or period of time usually describe the friction between the approaching paradigm and the current paradigm, each respectively defined by the approaching dominant Soul Age and the current dominant Soul Age. Many of the names assigned to the varying "parties" are tedious and unnecessary, so we will speak in broader terms here. NOTE FROM TROY: Some editing was done from the original text as I asked Michael for clarifications and questioned a couple of the original details. Also, the true definitions and delineations for all of the political/governmental systems can really get complicated, so Michael's response seems to be exactly what they've said, a "broader" perspective, at best. They did explain to me that there are really only three political systems, but a multitude of systems within those systems. [Michael Entity] It could be said that the following political systems are associated in this way: Infant Souls have no politics or order, and are therefore at the mercy of whatever dominant political system is in place at the time. However, they may be most comfortable with Dictatorship, which would be implemented by Baby Souls. The Baby/Young politics have shown up as Dictatorship, Capitalism, and Socialism. The Young/Mature politics have shown up as Monarchy, Republic, Socialism, and Communism. The Mature/Old politics have shown up as Monarchy, Democracy, and Anarchy. Old Soul politics return to a state of no politics, but more of what might be considered Anarchy. We use the word "anarchy" in its true definition, not as the Young or Mature soul might exploit the term. The anarchy usually takes on a form that would be recognized as Tribalism. In response to your questions: We would say that the politics of your current world are exactly indicative of the shifts from the dominant paradigm/soul age to another. From what we can see of other populations dominated by Old Soul Ages and paradigms, there are no governments that you would recognize beyond being more tribal groups in communication and exchange with one another, but with no discernible leader or authority. This is one of the reasons our teaching is particularly attractive to the older soul, since there is no discernible authority beyond the self, and even the sense of self is held in question to a degree that allows for sensitive consideration of all factors involved in the life. An Old Soul world is similar. [QUESTION] I realize my background in government is obviously lacking when I ask this question, but: Is there any distinguishable difference between a democracy and a republic according to Michael's perception? By including both, it seems to be implied that there is a difference. [Michael Entity] We differentiate a Republic from a Democracy in that a Republic has a more specifically-defined body of qualified voters or elected representatives, while a Democracy seeks to include all people, even those who might not be obviously qualified. The concept of Democracy can get confusing in some cultures such as in the United States because several forms of government are in place. Rather than a pure Democracy, the United States is far more accurately described as a Republic, which is a form of Democracy, but not true Democracy. In addition to this, the general promotion of Democracy is run from an Authoritarian perspective, or as a Plutocracy, to be specific. It could be said that the Physical economy of the United States is run by Plutocratic (authoritarian) politics, while the Emotional economy is run by Republican (Democratic) methods, and this is to be considered when looking at politics. There are Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and Spiritual levels of Politics and Economy to consider in any system. The closest to an old soul political system that exists in your world today is what is experienced as "the Internet." [QUESTION] How are the Internet and politics related? [Michael Entity] If "politics" is seen as a term to describe how a body of people govern themselves and resolve apparent conflicts, then the Internet could be seen as a system of politics. In this case, as would be the case for the Old Soul world, COMMUNICATION would be at the core of those politics, or the INTELLECT as economy. The Infant Soul uses Freedom; the Baby Soul uses Authority; the Young Soul uses Capital; the Mature Soul uses Well-Being; and the Old Soul uses Communication at the root of their politics. The "ultimate" political system, in the end, will have to utilize all of these factors to govern a mix of soul ages. Hence, the politics of a Democracy or a Republic will include previous political emphases to some degree, but with the more current politics being the emphasis. [QUESTION] And so, just as we are doing here in this chat, everyone determines for themselves, and then relates to the outside world through communication. but as an autonomous being similarly engaged with other autonomous beings/people? Something like this? [Michael Entity] We think we have understood your question and we would agree. It could be said then that the politics of the Old Soul are CONTEXTUAL. Certain politics apply within specific instances, but are not seen as appropriate across the board. And each person determines his or her level of compliance within certain contexts, or freely moves to more appropriate contexts. We realize this is far from being deeply explored, but we will move on now. [QUESTION] Since we acquire new bodies each lifetime, why do we still carry "memories" of injuries from past lives into new lifetimes? How does this work? For ex. my back pain has been channeled as being from an injury from a past life that I am working out. [Michael Entity] One only carries "memories" of injuries into a current life when those injuries or memories are relevant to the current life. They are never random, and never literal. For instance, your back pain is a manifestation of similar patterns being explored within this lifetime that are resonant to other lifetimes of similar exploration. It is not that the injury was literally carried over, but that you are doing similar things in a similar way that then resonate to that other lifetime. That resonance can help in healing the current injury only insofar as insights can be gained from experiences integrated by your Essence from that lifetime. The resonance to the other lifetime is not to give justification or distraction from your current ailments, but to allow a means of direct access to the wisdom stored by Essence from that lifetime. If one can imagine one lifetime as one point on a line, while another lifetime is another point at a distance on that line, and then imagine a line being drawn from one lifetime to another, that line CANNOT be "drawn" without first creating an arc through Essence, which is "above the line." Often Personality can relate to other Personalities before it can relate to Essence, so it "remembers" (or receives through a channel) the reference to another lifetime of similarity, but this is merely a method for indirectly accessing Essence. Keeping that in mind can help the point of that remembering and resonance. However, to be more specific in response to your question, it is not the injury that carries over, nor the memory, but the PATTERNS that are stored in your Instinctive Center, which is pulled from one lifetime and then "inserted" into another lifetime. This is not a literal event, but the image is helpful. It can also hep to think of it as a program, or a collection of programs/software that is now available to the new personality. Depending on the choices of the current personality, certain programs/software/patterns will emerge for use, and many will not. In your case, QUESTIONER, you have called upon a theme of self-esteem issues, and these issues are often ignored or overridden on the emotional or intellectual levels to a degree that physical manifestation helps in tending to that theme of issues. You will then find resonance to lifetimes where a similar physical injury or ailment was being explored for similar reasons. [QUESTION] Could Michael suggest some energy-work on such an issue? [Michael Entity] The "energy work" for any given ailment would have to be relative to the ailment and the individual, but we can say that any chronic aching that is related to self-esteem issues would require "energy work" on the Emotional Body as a focal point, while emphasis of RELIEF on the Physical Body will help in allowing that focus. This energy work on the Emotional Body might be anything from cathartic expression to gestalt therapies to flotation therapies to singing therapies to permission therapies that allow for more of what one craves, etc. We wish to point out here that the patterns carried over from one lifetime to another are only brought into reality by the choices of the current personality. For instance, there have have been lifetimes for the Questioner that have been lived between the past life back injury and the back injury of this lifetime. Back pain was not an issue in those lifetimes between. A more poetic way to understand this might be that the songs heard from other lifetimes depends on the melodies played by this one. [QUESTION] I would like more information on the upcoming (or current??) nexus. It feels to me as if everything over a period of some months has been leading to this (at least for me personally.) Lots of old wounds and even fear patterns (particularly self-esteem, self-worth issues) have been triggered. I recognize them for what they are, but I need to find a way to stay focused on what it is that I want to create, particularly in terms of my career. I am also dealing with a boss who has a very different approach to life than I do. I am guessing she is some combination of sage/priest/warrior - very focused, driven (passion mode?) energy though even though I think she is emotionally centered. Whereas, even though I am a scholar, and intellectually centered, my approach is more fuzzy, diffuse, and go with the flow, or at least it feels that way. Any suggestions here? Please direct your answer in any way that would be helpful to others in general. I can follow up with Troy on the more personal aspects later. [Michael Entity] What we can say about the upcoming Nexus is that there seems to be an exploration of the concept of COMPARISONS/CONTRASTS. This seems to be resulting from the enthusiasm/collapse extremes that we have described for many of our students. The enthusiasm comes from the Persistence energy that pushes beyond the collapsing experience of Unchanging energy. It is fair to compare and contrast the unchanging energy with the persistent energy, or the collapsing energy with the enthusiastic energy, but will not be fair to oneself to presume one is stuck in this pattern indefinitely, or to presume one has to remain in one or the other. In light of this, many of you may find representatives of your inner enthusiasm/collapse around you. In your case, it could be said that your "boss" represents the enthusiasm, while "you" represent the collapses. This then leads to your attributing distaste for enthusiasm because your boss expresses it differently from what you would, and this leads to distaste for yourself since you see most easily the collapse in you. [QUESTION] and how to move beyond this? [Michael Entity] What one could do, using your example, is to try what we suggested in our Energy Report, which is to DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. In this case, it might mean to flip and reverse your perspective and interpretations in a completely enlightening and revitalizing way (instead of in the debilitating way that is your current pattern). Allow your boss to be the wonderful representative of how you create your collapses, and for yourself to represent what actually inspires your enthusiasm. In other words, doing things your way actually leads to productivity, creativity, and meaning, while doing things her way leads to confusion, overwhelm, and hopelessness. [QUESTIONER] I'm not quite grasping this [Michael Entity] If we are seeing the situation clearly, we would say that your collapses come in your comparing yourself to others forms of productivity and trying to implement methods not natural to you, whereas realizing what does and does not work for you allows for you to implement practices that encourage your enthusiasm and do not require you to conform to anyone else's methods. We believe we may be getting into personal territory and will halt our response here, but simply point out that the upcoming Nexus is one that emphasizes CONTRASTS and COMPARISONS and this is to allow for heightened awareness of what IS and IS NOT working for you in various areas of your life. The process of Comparing and Contrasting can often feel like self-judgment or judgment of others, and it is just that, but it is not something to be feared. It is simply a natural method for navigating life. To fear it is to remain stuck. To remain stuck is to remain at the extreme of collapse. We will conclude here, then. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  17. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 110407 [Michael Entity] : Hello to all of you. We are here. We will call on Glenn for the first question. [Glenn] : I have a question about the implicate structure of the universe. I've studied Indra's Net, Michael Math, the Golden Mean, Sacred Geometry, Quantum Physics, and music. I've had dreams and vision quests which have shown me numerous complex matrices and structures. I don't know how to bring them into physical reality. I guess my question in brief is why have I come across this information and how can I best utilize and/or transmit it? [Michael Entity] : The collective consciousness of your particular Cadre specializes in this particular area of the universe and so it is not surprising to find your interest blooming within your lifetime, especially given your particular Entity's position within your Cadre. We have regular contact with what might appear to you as being your "future" selves in terms of your collective cadre consciousness as it exist within the Causal Plane. A common reference to this collective has been "Mentax." This response helps bring insight into the why of your interest and strong attraction to this angle of study of the universe. In terms of how to best utilize and transmit this information, we can only suggest that it is a process of study at this point; an exploration of patterns and potentials, but not one of conclusions that need be "transmitted" within this lifetime. The closest we can come to describing how you may already be expressing this geometric spirituality is through the construction of musical notes and your exploration of the impact of melodies, notes, and the spaces between those very notes on space and senses. It appears to us that there might begin to be an emphasis of movement and composition away from a linear exploration and into a more circular exploration, leading to a more spherical experience at some point; if this makes sense to you. [Glenn] : Spherical and spiral. It makes total sense to me. [Michael Entity] : As music and math are "two sides of the same coin," it makes sense to us that your explorations are between these intimate sciences. [Geraldine] : What is Cadre 2 known to specialize in? [Michael Entity] : Cadre Two seems to have a theme of emphasis of specialty in Color and Light. We refer to this collective consciousness as "Polymous." We remind all here that the "names" we share here are translations from a less-verbal means by which we actually refer to your Cadres. We also remind you that the themes we describe are broad and are taking into account a grand collection of experience that can be reduced to a very thin theme, and those themes are full of sub-themes, and not all lifetimes and personalities will recognize these grander themes. [christian] : My question was prompted by one of the Mblogs. How would I help my sister to stop blaming so that she could release the pain? It seems the pain has in part come to define her. I see that as restrictive. Please advise. [Michael Entity] : We must remind you that we do not "advise," as we do not have an investment in your choices. We can, however, respond with our observations and suggestions: In terms of helping your sister to stop blaming, we would suggest, first, that you examine why you would wish for her to be rescued from her personal experience and process. We use the word "rescue" as this is what we would describe the act of interrupting an experience for the sake of what might be defined as a state that is "better" for a person. Quite often what one believes is "better" is not for the sake of the person being rescued, but for the sake of the rescuer. In other words, it pains you to observe her struggles, so to remove her from her struggles may bring relief to you. We do not state this as incriminating, but as a first step in understanding your motivation to help her. Honesty with yourself is the bridge of effectiveness between your efforts that benefit you and benefit the other fragment. We also suggest this examination of motivation because what might "help" her the most is not an ending of her process, but walking through it with her at her pace and with the restrictions and pain she may feel is necessary along the way. When we say "feel is necessary," we do not mean that she wishes for this pain, but that the pain is a product of her processing of truth, and it is accepted as such on a level within herself that trusts her own navigation of her life. In short, the pain that you perceive as having come to define her is just one side of the process that will allow gaining a more comprehensive awareness of her truths. It is only one side. It is not her conclusion. If you wish to help her, we see one of your choices that would bring about your desired results would be in simply walking with her through her process, but consciously embodying a trust in her process, yourself, so that she may also draw from that example of trust and regain a conscious remembering of her own trust in her process. This trust exists already within her, but not consciously. Let her blame. Let her restrict herself. Let her identify with the pain. In many ways, "the only way out, is through." Once the personality has fed enough on the lies that surround the experience, then the dessert of truth can be enjoyed. [christian] : yum!! [Michael Entity] : We do not mean to speak so poetically, but these words have meaning in more ways than poetic. [hairguique] : Hi Michaels and Troy, As students of Michael we are all developing our understandings. How does one develop their communication with Michaels? Like Channeling, auto writing? Being a Healer is very important. [Michael Entity] : Communicating with us is quite simple in most cases, but there are certain strengths inherent in your Overleaves that bring about ease in one area or another of the process. There are three major parts to the process of communicating with us or any other non-physical consciousness or energy, with a fourth part that is the sum of the three: Connection, Translation, and Transmission, with Comprehension as the sum of all parts. Some of you are quite naturally in contact with us because your Overleaves fall predominantly in the Inspiration Axis, while some of you are quite accurate in your Translation of the energy because your Overleaves fall predominantly on the Expression axis, and still others of you are quite comfortable with your Transmission of this energy into physicality because of your Overleaves falling predominantly on the Action axis. For effective channeling to occur in a way that most think of "channeling," then an emphasis on the "weak" areas of your Overleaves is needed for building strength and balance. In other words, in examining your profile, the axis with the least amount of overleaves may be an area in which your emphasis may need to be, while noting where your overleaves predominate can bring some confidence to that aspect of your communication. To explore this question fully is an entire course in itself, but we can say these quick considerations for now: depending on your strength of emphasis in your Overleaves, ease of contact with us might come in these ways: Inspiration Axis/Dreams Expression Axis/Conversation Action Axis/Affection. For those with an emphasis on the Assimilation Axis, your Comprehension may be a strength, but usually through experiences of contact with another person's strength of emphasis; for example, comprehension may come from the experience of Affection, Conversation, and Dreams. In areas lacking emphasis, we can say these quick considerations for building strength and finding tools: Inspiration/Listening and Dream Journaling Expression/Telling the Truth and Tarot (or other symbolic forms of oracle) Action/Asking for Help and Psychometry. Though we have much more to say about this subject, we will move on now to the next question. [AnnH] : According to Abraham, it's difficult for us to go from depression to joy in one step. It's said that moving up the emotional scale is more beneficial. Can Michael add to this? [freyaisis] : (the emotional guidance system) [AnnH] : More beneficial as in truthful, helpful, fewer expectations. Yes, thanks suz [freyaisis] : your welcome, good question ann [Michael Entity] : We would agree with what has come through the source known as "Abraham." We have rarely seen evolution occur in "one step," but have seen all forms of growth or healing as being in steps as part of a process. What we can do to add to what you have already found as beneficial is to describe our observation of the process for movement from the state of depression to the state of joy, but we would caution that it is not a linear process with a conclusive state, but the progress from depression to joy is a natural cycle of experience while having a body and reaching joy does not mean one is then exempt from the troubles of depression. It is not necessary to avoid or "heal" depression, nor is it necessary to seek only a state of Joy. What will tend to bring a wholeness to the life is the awareness of who "you" are even as you experience those fluctuating feelings. Depression is merely an attachment to one state of feeling and identifying entirely with it, rather than differentiating oneself from the experience of that state. This would be true of joy, too. Joy is a PART of life, not the goal of life. Depression is a PART of life, not a condemnation. In light of that, our process would be one that describes a process of detachment and a broadening of consciousness, rather than that of a healing or escape from a state of feeling. We will describe this in the final transcript, but the time allotted now does not allow for that. (NOTE FROM TROY: this will come soon, but I have to work on it. It should be done soon!) Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
