OMW - Jun 15, 2012 - Tending To your 7 Basic Rights Troy Tolley, Channel [MEntity] What we are asked to discuss today is rather vital to the health and well-being of a lifetime of incarnation, and is fairly directly hooked into the capacity for Personality to Manifest Essence for any extended period of time. For the sake of clarity, we will state here that while Chakras and Centers have resonance that can draw meaningful and relevant correlations, they are not the same system. Chakras are inherent energy management systems of varying complexities that are formed by bodies as a means to sustain form of some kind, whereas "Centering," in our teachings, while referencing Chakras, describes one's "center of gravity," or how one navigates the physical plane while in the body. Primary Centering is how one takes in the world around the body, while the Part is how one tends to emit themselves back out into the world. So while one may have Emotional Centering as a form of navigation, this would not necessarily mean that one has a strong or emphasized Heart Chakra, for instance. Nor would it mean one has an underused or de-emphasized Heart Chakra. We point the difference out here because there are Correlations and then there are Resonances between the systems, and they are not consistent with each other. We will not get into those differences here, but it will be important not to draw tight parallels between the two while exploring both systems, as they are, indeed, different systems. For today, we discuss the Chakras, and if we draw parallels to the Centers, it would be relevant in that context, but not necessarily in another context. The Chakras, then, are the connecting portals between Essence and Personality, or the Essence and Bodies. We speak in plural of the bodies, as there are various layers of the body that vary in density and function, and these bodies are the parts that bring the whole to "life," but each body, or density, could function on its own. Each body has a different experience of time and space and dimension, and each has a different emphasis of management for what and how to share with Essence, and each may have a different agenda, different wounding, different version of history, etc. And each body is in charge of fulfilling its own "right." We are speaking of these bodies as delineated, only for the sake of convenience and comprehension, but they function seamlessly and as a whole. It will not be helpful to think of these as separate, except insofar as it helps you to first grasp this particular topic. In other words, in much the same way that we could speak to you about how your fingers function as very specific tools as compared to your arms, they do not function without each other, and to focus on one over the other would be pointless. In order for Essence to experience the various Planes of Existence, there must be bodies. Essence, alone, has no bodies, no form, no location. As Essence is FIRST Cast from Tao, its most amorphous "form" is actually something more like a recording device: the Instinctive Center, or what would become the Root Chakra in a Physical Body. This is because Essence is actually "formed" from the Akashic Plane, which, in itself, is the only "plane" that is not a Plane. There is no incarnation or processing through that "plane," as it is only a memory bank and probability generator. This Instinctive Center is inherent in ALL that is Cast from Tao, which means that if it is "not" Tao, then it has an Instinctive Center, and if it is on the Physical Plane, no matter what it is, there is a Root Chakra, at the very least. In terms of Rights, then, this would be the very basic Right To Exist. Once a portion of energy is Cast from Tao, it is "forever" its own thing. We know of nothing that has lost that Right, regardless of form, return and exit from Tao, etc. It would be important, here, to define what we mean by "Rights." We mean the term in much the same way that it is already understood. These Rights are those qualities and states of Being, Having, and Doing that are fully guaranteed, inherent, and due. Once one is Cast from Tao, these Rights are permanent. For example, there will never be a "when" that you do not Exist. It is permanently your Right as Essence. In much the same way this works for Essence, this Right is inherent in its own creations, as well. So the Personality is always "born" from the memory bank and probability generating Instinctive Center of Essence, and cast with the very basic Right To Exist. This means that "you," as you know you, will "never" go away, even when "you" die. The form may change, the identity may evolve, and the attachments will wane, but the "you" that is you, cannot be undone. This is why we use the term "fragments" as both a reference to your Essence as a part of its higher contexts, but also in reference to the Personalities that exist as parts of an Essence. Essence is a microcosmic Tao. This Right to Exist translates into the individual Personality as its Right to its memories and its capacity for generating probabilities. In short, its Right to Choose. The capacity for choice exists in every known form, even if the contexts for choice are relative. The parameters of choice for an atom, a rock, or a chicken are very different from the choices of a Personality. The parameter of Choice of a Personality is very different from that of Essence, as well. This does not undermine the capacity for choice, though. One way of understanding this is to consider the choices necessary for a fighter pilot to make versus those of a housewife, or the difference in parameters of choice for a child in kindergarten versus those of the college graduate. These are not limitations imposed, but simply contextual. Your Essence must make Choices that a Personality will never have to face. And Personality must make choices that Essence would never have been able to make on its own. Grand Cycle after Grand Cycle, lifetime after lifetime, the Instinctive, or Root Chakra, is the only element carried forth, over and over and over. It becomes multilayered, as each Grand Cycle "stacks" a layer upon a layer so that there is no bleedthrough, and so that there is a fresh layer for recording, but those layers are always accessible by Essence. All other Chakras are new and relative to the Grand Cycle. That is because these other Chakras become the means by which the recording of experiences are funneled to the Instinctive. And those Chakras must be relative to the systems in place for that "universe." As no universe or Essence can be in existence without inherently owning an Instinctive Center, or Root Chakra, this is the only one that is at the root, if you will, of any existence. It is a misnomer to describe Essence as "owning" this, as Essence is, essentially, the same thing, but the same could be said of a Personality in relation to Essence; we delineate for purposes of understanding the parts that are the whole. In the same way that the developing Chakras relative to a Grand Cycle become the funnels for recording experiences to the Instinctive Center, so are Personalities within a specific Sentience funneling experiences to Essence. The first Chakra, then, that is developed, is that which allows for location. That would be the Second Chakra, or the Sacral Chakra. This Chakra is the first form of differentiation within a universe. This is not the same thing as separation. It is the capacity for form within form. Thus, it is also the Chakra of Creation. Because this is a Chakra that allows for location and form and creation, it is also the first body that "feels." Form within Form allows for intimacy, unison, oneness. We describe the Highest Plane, which inherently has these qualities, as the Buddhic Plane. This Right is vital for the use of Existence. It is the capacity for Existence to have location, and to create form. Everything "feels," then. Everything. However, what is often thought of as "feelings" are not the same thing here. Having the capacity for form within form means being aware of the self in relation to something else. All matter has that capacity to some degree. We refer to it as Consciousness. A rock, flea, and chicken have a consciousness just as your Essence does, and "you" do. The capacity for choice determines the capacity for Consciousness. A rock has a very different parameter of Choice from a chicken or a Sentient Human, so there are varying degree of Consciousness involved in each. However, for an Essence to ever move into a Sentient Species, it must evolve though all of those parameters of choice, or degrees of Consciousness, before considering Sentient exploration. Before doing so, the first "form within form" or creation of Essence is its formation of Entity, Cadre, and Energy Ring, etc. This is its first experience of location. And this is done through "feeling." Every Essence, then, could be said to "feel" its way through the universe to find its Entity Mates, old friends from other Grand Cycles, and the formation of what is the actual "Casting" begins. "Feeling" here, then, is the inclination toward the organizing of patterns, or the creation of harmony and resonance. When this is carried into a Physical Lifetime, or a Personality, this Right to Feel translates into your Right to Intimacy, to Creativity, to Pleasure. The next Chakra that is developed, then, is the 6th Chakra, or the Brow Chakra. This is first time that "Time" begins to be experienced. It is often said that "time is an illusion," but that is another misleading cliche. "Time" is simply a term that describes the organizing of experiences. Time for Essence is very different than Time for Personality, because they organize experiences very differently. Time for a gnat is very different from Time for a rock for the same reasons. This organizational capacity must be in place early on, if you will, so that experience can be funneled into Essence in a way that can be comprehended, for that is the "entire point" of Existence. In terms of Personality, this Right is quite similar, in that it is your Right to see beyond any circumstances, beyond the self, beyond the moment, to dream, to imagine, to be visionary, etc. The next Chakra that is developed, then, is the 7th Chakra, or the Crown Chakra, as this is the means through which Essence will comprehend its experiences of existence. It is the Right to Evolve. This is inherent in all matter, as well. The Rights to Exist, Feel, Dream, and Evolve, then, are inherent in all matter or energy. There are better words that may be considered, but this is a fair enough reference here. Yes, even Rocks have these Rights, at least in terms of the energy and matter that is the Rock. However, something very different begins to happen for those forms of Consciousness who choose to aim for exploration in Sentience (and not all forms of consciousness aim for that). The Chakras, or Rights, that we have described so far are the Rights that come from the very nature of energy as representative of Tao, and this gives all a vast range of exploration in form throughout that universe, since all matter would inherently have these Rights, or portals/chakras. Entire Entities and Energy Rings can then exist as mountain ranges, weather systems, herds of animals, insects, birds, amoeba, fish, water systems, etc. or whatever other terms might be used to describe the planet of interest that may house a candidate species for sentience. All of the Rights inherent in Essence are carried through those forms and implemented in ways that evolve the planet and its species and life forms. Nothing in existence was formed in matter without some consciousness involved in its coming into that existence of form. Nothing in existence of form is evolved without the consciousness that is experiencing that form and its parameters of choice. But what makes Sentience so unique is that it learns to use the inherent Chakras of the denser bodies, and turns those into an extension of Essence Rights. In the exploration through the Physical Plane, there comes a time when the aim for Sentience includes having the Rights of Essence represented through the bodies of that Plane. The first of these to be established is the 3rd Chakra, or the Right to Move, to Change, to Be Free. This tends to prompt the evolutionary chain of events that lead to the candidates for Sentience much later. This is because the Third Chakra is the Second Chakra, made Ordinal. Or, in our terms, the Moving Center begins being used for manifesting the Higher Moving Center. This 3rd Chakra, then, is developed in anything that can move or grow in form, and that Right will exist for anything that can move and grow within the Physical Plane after that Chakra has been developed for that form. Again, at least in terms of the consciousness exploring that form. In a Sentient Species, this Right continues as a similar Right. It is the Right of the Personality to make its own choices, choose its own actions, choose its own directions, grow in its own way, be free on its own terms, etc. The 4th Chakra is developed among species whose wiring has evolved to a point where it can become aware of itself beyond itself. This is not the same thing as self-awareness or Sentience, but a kind of empathy, and an awareness of Time, and a capacity for learning. In non-sentient Species this would be the Right to Nurture, to Care, to Empathize. In a Sentient Species, this becomes the Right to Love. And then the 5th Chakra is developed and explored through species who have gained the capacity for language. This becomes the Right to Communicate in non-sentient species, and becomes the Right to The Truth in a Sentient Species. By "language," we do not mean speaking English, but some form of complex symbols in sound, body, or other form that allows for the transfer of ideas. This 5th Chakra becomes the practice portal for the use of the 7th Chakra of Essence. As an aside: We will not go into detail about the Kingdoms that were developed and then explored on this planet by Essences aiming for Sentience, but we can say that, while this planet was explored by our Design of Sentience before choosing a different planet, and because our bodies were "moved here," many fragments within our Design are wholly unfamiliar with the the Kingdoms here, and therefore have evolved over time with a gross lack of concern for the Rights of the creatures who evolved here. What we have shared with you so far has been an overall picture of these Rights, why they are called Rights, and how they came about. When a species shifts from non-sentient to sentient, it tends to be because of the capacity for that species to not merely be experienced by Essence, but to represent Essence. [GeraldineB] Is this the basic reason that taking a sentient life requires karma to expiate it? The right to life? [MEntity] To some extent, yes. And that is because it is very different to experience a Physical Plane through a form, versus AS a form. We will point out here that before there is an incarnation as a Sentient Species, there is no 3rd, 4th, or 5th Chakra. But once locked into an incarnational cycle as a Sentient Species, that Essence is then locked into a path back to Tao that will require the full exploration of those Chakras AS ESSENCE, which means a process through not only the Physical Plane, as represented by the 3rd Chakra, but the Astral Plane, as represented by the 4th, and the Causal Plane, as represented by the 5th. It is important to understand the greater context for these Rights and the Chakras, but for the point of this workshop, we will now point you toward the ways in which you can use this information on a daily basis so that it is meaningful to "you" "now." [Janet] Do you mean before there is a plan to experience sentience there is no 3rd, 4th or 5th chakra? Earlier you said it was necessary to experience nurturing as non-sentient. [MEntity] Janet, those Chakras are developed as inherent in the species being explored, but only upon Sentience do they then become a part of Essence. That is because, when exploring the Chakras through non-sentience, they are stationary, if you will, in that species, but once Essence is exploring Sentience, those Chakras rise out of the Instinctive Center that is "inserted" into every body of each life. This is the difference between being a fragment that is Sentient, and being a part of a Hive Soul. Those stationary chakras act as portals for the exploring consciousness of that species. That species becomes like a hive of portals, or Chakras, through which various Essences, Entities, or even Energy Rings explore, diving in and out, etc. In Sentience, however, the bodies die without the consciousness that holds them together. To continue: In exploring your Rights as a Personality that is representative of Essence, and having all of the Rights that are inherent in both Essence and Personality, it will help you to understand one simple question for assessing what Right you are either blocking, ignoring, or undermining: What makes you Angry? Anger is the means through which bodies develop the capacity for alerting itself to the violation of Rights. We are using the term "anger" here because it is the most obvious, but anger is another term for helpless, and is the underlying factor in sadness or depression, as well. [Bobby] no offense taken ;-) [MEntity] If it helps, then, one can ask, what makes me sad? what makes me depressed? what makes me feel helpless? Most of what makes one helpless, sad, depressed, or angry is relative to one's capacity for fulfilling one's own Rights. None of the reasons or causes are relevant for anything other than your own process of awareness, as there are often limitations in what one can do to change the what, or the who, or the when of anger. [Maureen] How does the “Right to Life” or the “Right to Exist” play into being a Carnivore vs a Vegetarian? Do Humans have more “rights” than Animals? Do Animals have more “rights” than Plants? Is there a pecking order? (no chicken jokes here ;) ) [MEntity] The point would be in helping you to understand how you can bring more fulfillment and flow to your Chakras, or Rights, to help you to Exist, Feel, Grow, Love, Communicate, Dream, and Know. No one species has more Rights than another, but eventually, Sentience begins to acknowledge the spectrum of Rights inherent in all form, and makes choices relative to how those are honored. A Sentient Species is the only species with the capacity to grasp the concept of Rights while in form. A factory animal may know anger, sadness, depression, helplessness because it is aware that its Right to Be Free has been violated, but it does not know that it has that Right. On their own terms, the creatures would exemplify their Right to Be Free, to Nurture, and to Communicate, as these are inherent in the species, but they would not know to defend these until they are violated. This is why many species can be enslaved and farmed, as they know only the instinctive defense of the Rights, but not the Rights. [Janet] Michael, my primary source of anger relates to limitation of choice -- in the form of people seeking to impose their beliefs on others via rules or laws and also in the form of individuals mindlessly accepting whatever their church or peer group say is best. I cannot see how this ties to a specific Right or chakra. It seems to affect all of them. Although, given your last statement, perhaps it most affects my right to be Free -- similar to the animals you have described. [MEntity] Janet, when you cannot seem to clearly identify what Right is in violation, what you might want to do is look at or feel where the anger is felt in the body when noting this violation. Where it is felt in the body is often a sign as to what Chakra is being violated. If you feel this in your stomach, or your gut, it may be that it is the Right to Be Free. [Janet] Well, that is helpful. I do feel it in my gut. [MEntity] Keep in mind, however, that while the "cause" may be consistent, the Right is not always the same one being violated. For instance, another time you may find that it is a violation of truth, or the right to the truth, and all of the variations on the truth. This may be felt in your body by wishing you would say something when you end up not speaking up. And so on. [Maureen] Do Plants "suffer" the same distinction then? [MEntity] As for Plants, they only suffer in terms of their Right to Grow. They do not experience suffering in other ways, for the most part, as they do not have the 4th and 5th Chakras developed. [Maureen] Michael -- Then Headaches may represent that your "Right to Dream" is being curtailed? .. and so on? [MEntity] Maureen, that would be correct, though one must be careful to explore the spectrum of interpretation that can be attributed to a Chakra and Right, so as not to become too literal in correlation. For instance, a headache might also speak to the refusal to see beyond one's circumstances, to explore imaginative solutions, etc. When one feels that his or her Rights are obstructed in some way, there is only one solution: YOU. [Maureen] Do Creatures have developed 4th and 5th Chakras then? [MEntity] Not all creatures have developed 4th and 5th Chakras. Creatures that have developed the capacity for Nurturing have developed the 4th, and Creatures that have developed the 5th have created a means of sharing ideas and concepts. In some way, somehow, you must acknowledge that your Right is actually still intact, or find a means through which you can acknowledge that it is implemented. When one feels that his Rights are violated, by the self or by others or by circumstances, there will ALWAYS be a way that those Rights can be fulfilled, or that are already being fulfilled. This is not the same thing as the Rights that are fought for within societies and communities, though these do represent internal battles within various groups. We are speaking to your Rights as Sentience, the combination of Essence and Personality, and these are always intact. We have gone rather long in our exploration of this topic, and we think that we could do well to follow up with more discussion in your Forum where this will be archived. As you explore the concept of these Rights over the next weeks, we can respond through Troy for further discussion about your questions and experiences. We must conclude here for today. It has been a long journey to Sentience, and these Rights are yours. They will be intact with or without your acknowledgment, but to acknowledge them, and occasionally manage your way back into that acknowledgment, can have profound effects upon your capacity to choose, and to be conscious.
February 2, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. One moment. For Open Floor nights, we do not have any opening statements, so if you would like to begin your queue, do so. [Hector07] I would like to know if you could perhaps give me some insight into how to open up my heart Chakra some more. [Michael_Entity] We will attempt to respond to this as personally as we can in this forum, but we are generally limited to responses beneficial to your little group as a whole. The “problem,” in this case, is not directly the result of a “closed” Heart/Emotional Center, but rather the restrictions on the Higher Emotional and Higher Moving Centers. You have been challenged on many levels within these Centers, leaving you with a great sense of disconnection from others and great challenges in understanding “where the love is” in many people’s actions. These are fundamental questions you are seeking to comprehend this lifetime. Many of your most intimate associations have been your greatest teachers in terms of contradicting everything you ever expected of love and intimacy. In the process, you have “closed” much of what might be reflective of a healthy 2nd and 6th Chakra, with the “heart” center being the most obviously imploded. Your Higher Intellect and Intellectual Centers, then, are carrying much of the processing of this lifetime, seeking grand reasons and insights and truths behind all that exists. But this is simply a pendulum swing in your growth and comprehension, not an indication of your conclusions. You have necessarily “closed” much of your feeling, vulnerabilities, sense of intimacy and responsibility in certain arena for purposeful healing. As you continue in your latest matedness, enduring the adventures and emotional drama that is part of that, you are actually opening these Centers commented on. You are learning that there can be drama, excitement, adventure, without your having to “pay a price” emotionally, though the emotions moved to the surface as a result may be “old” and seem to be generated from the present, they are not. We therefore state that the very concern you have with your questioning about the opening of the heart Chakra is, indeed, an indication of its movement toward balance. There are many other angles and responses we could have to this open-ended question, but we believe this will do for now. [Dewliet] Can “romantic” relationships form between incarnate fragments and discarnates they encounter on the astral? If so, how might this manifest in the waking hours for the incarnate individual? [Michael_Entity] Yes, these can occur, and do, for many late mature and old souls. The “romance” aspect is the Personality’s interpretation of this less-convoluted resonance [meaning, without bodies and personalities interfering between the two], but this interpretation is nearly impossible to remove from the equation. This “romance” can manifest in the waking state in many ways, ranging from mild preoccupation, to serious treatment of the relationship as “real,” to “going crazy.” ALL of you have these relationships in some way, but the treatment of them as significant or not is what determines their impact on the incarnate Personality. We point out here, as well, that fragments who have never met, but are both incarnate, can also share this experience on the Astral [often showing up in dreams], which can then be amplified in effect due to the physical plane and incarnate Personality of both fragments being involved. Most of these incidences of “romance” range from balancing Emotional Karma to simple misinterpretation of a resonance. [MaryBV] I am curious about the nature of the work that the Michael entity does. What is the purpose of the work and what is gained when a student learns a lesson the Michael entity teaches them? How does the Michael entity learn its lessons? [Michael_Entity] Our only “purpose” is to share and teach. This does not require any particular response from anyone beyond a general Agreement to “hear” us. Much like a Professor is present in a college with his knowledge and experience, regardless, but those who sign up for him may or may not choose to gain from that. Their presence allows him to teach, whether he is heard or not. What we believe is “gained” when there is comprehension, is a lack of preoccupation with the woes of life and a more peaceful focus on the life as it is lived. The need for control is dropped, the need for safety is dropped, the need for constancy is dropped, and the need for “more” is dropped. These of course relate to the chief features. Though we do not have an investment in your growth, we do find a sense of validation of what we, ourselves, have learned, when your implementation makes a difference you deem positive. We learn our lessons in the direction of comprehending the Tao; you learn your lessons in the direction of comprehending your life. What we “gain” from your growth and implementation is the Validation, which is required throughout the Physical, Astral, and Causal Planes as a means of progress. We learn our lesson in ways that may seem complicated to you, but we remain “stationary” in our growth until all fragments are in agreement on a Truth. This does not mean we find a reduced commonality, but rather we all “see” each other’s Truth and incorporate that meaningfully and without contradiction. The three levels of Truth exist through to this plane, and part of the progress through and beyond is in relinquishing the first two levels. This is a glimpse at our process, but a simplistic one and the images provoked are not necessarily accurate. The words are, but the images in general are limiting. [Shannon] Some weeks ago, we were all talking about parallel realities. Are all of us in this “room” or on the list in the “same” parallel, so it would be theoretically possible to physically meet one another? And would it be possible for someone in this parallel to communicate with someone in the parallel, just for example, where Al Gore won the American election? [Michael_Entity] If you are in any way making physical contact with another fragment, you are in the same parallel. We are specific when we say “physical contact”; the emphasis is on “contact.” Though you may see many visually in your environment, you are not necessarily in the same parallel. Your world is a “pool of energy” and many frequencies exist with which the brain must filter as a means to differentiate the various frequencies within the spectrum. On the level of “environment,” as in what might be seen accurately as your “props” or “background,” many of the people you see in the streets, tv, school, work, etc., are “not here.” For example, not all people shopping in a Supermarket are sharing the same Parallel, nor would an Airplane carrying its passengers. If verbal, physical, or visual acknowledgment on a significant level has been made, it is safe to say you share your parallel. All of you in this room, at this time, are sharing a parallel because the means of contact is still physical here and specific. This does not mean you will continue in the same parallel after contact. It would be easy to contact, through your imagination, a parallel of your own that is in an “Al Gore” parallel, but to contact another fragment entirely can be more confusing to all involved. The most direct method would be in imagining your parallel self, and then having that self contact a fragment within that parallel on your behalf. But, as you can see, this has the makings of a very confusing incident. We cannot emphasize enough how your use of imagination as a tool for examining parallels is valid and that simple. Imagining what it would “be like” in that parallel is your first step, then learning to differentiate between fantasy and vision, the negative and positive poles of Imagination, respectively. [Annette] Several of us within the group have been experiencing headaches and health/emotional difficulties this past week. Could you comment on the nature of these ills and what we can do to bring about better general health? [Michael_Entity] There are a few things generating these experiences for several late mature and old souls: The amount of death on the planet in an instant creates for many of you what might be considered a “psychic blow.” Many of you can “hear” those affected VERY deeply within your being. Since a conscious participation in the grief does not “make sense,” a headache results as you struggle with comprehension of a seemingly intangible energy surge. Another angle is that many of you are angry about what you consider to be the “wrong” parallel choice. With the election of Bush, many of you felt a sense of self-punishment was in order. This does not happen consciously, of course, but stems from the results of “bad choices” in your past wherein you were punished. As you grow to comprehend parallels and choices, many of you tend to amplify your need for sensing control, but this very knowledge makes you feel you lack it. As in, “why would *I* create this?!!” Part of your comprehension of Choice is in realizing it happens on many levels, not exclusively on your own. The scale of world events is a COLLECTIVE CHOICE. This does not mean you ultimately did not choose this, but that you might have passively found it curious and enticing, at the least, and are here for that reason. You CREATE reality or you ALLOW it. Both are valid. And another, yet not final, angle is simply that many of you are experiencing the implementation and shift from the Instinctive Centered Year to the Intellectual Center now. This created a surge, as well, that was difficult for some of you. [ludmila] My mother has senile dementia, depression and age-related schizophrenia and paranoia. She also sees ‘people’ not visible to others. What purpose is served, or lesson learned in being mentally ill? [Michael_Entity] In the same way that a person behaves a certain way when “drunk,” so does a fragment who loses their mental faculties. Their experience is the result of loss of inhibitions in many ways and a lack of the more acceptable social filters that allows community. Filters, as we will refer to them here, are created in the structuring of the brain during the Baby Soul Ages as a means to preserve community and society and civility. The Essence does not lose that lesson, but as the body matures, it cannot in many instances contain the constant instruction for filtering. Beliefs are the primary filters, in general, but there is also a specific “feed” from Essence that allows the body to experience its soul age. In many cases where the symptoms you described are experienced at the end of a life, it is the body’s reaction to a great deal of personal oppression within that lifetime. It’s purpose, then, is to “show” the Personality the gifts of comprehending freedom on a profound level before exiting. This will allow the transition to be more comfortable and acceptable, as well as the planning of the next lifetime to be of high consideration for including more play. For those around that fragment, the reactions to the fragment in question can be disconcerting as they process this. The symptom described as “paranoia” is actually “comprehension”. “Schizophrenia”, in this case, can be said to be direct addressing of sub-personalities that did not “get a voice” before. The “depression” can be said to be the grieving (another method of comprehending truth) of the loss of various freedoms, now realized. Again, we could delineate this through more levels, and more specifically, but this is a general scenario with which you can help yourself understand the event more comfortably, if you choose. [Lights_Edge] RetroPsychoKenesis has shown that humans are able to influence the frequency of radioactive decay. Radioactive decay is thought to have pure quantum randomness. Can you explain how humans are able to bias this randomness? Are their thoughts a source of this bias? [Michael_Entity] As we have said before, and here will say again, there is no true “randomness”. Assuming that it is “true” creates a false premise with which to build further speculations and questioning, rendering all responses to the speculations and questions meaningless to a great degree. The instances asked about above could be more accurately examined in light of terminology along the lines of “synchronicity” and “resonance”, rather than “influencing” or “biasing” and “randomness”. We will say that when there is evidence described in your question, this is an example of a fragment in the Positive Pole of the Higher Moving Center. We will end here. Good Night.
Next Wave Michael - Sept 19, 2015 - Your Center of Gravity Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Today we will speak on a topic that is one of our early pieces of the teaching that made it through fairly concisely during the 20th Century CE. Despite this clarity, the details have become simplified in a way that left behind a great deal of the layers and details that help add dimension to this piece of the teaching. This is the information on the Centers or "brains" of the body. We have said this before, but will say it again here for review: though the correlations between Centers and Chakras are virtually inseparable, the concepts are different. In other words, though the Chakras and Centers can be spoken of in interchangeable ways, Chakras describe the stationary locations/portals of energy as they function relative to the body, while Centers expands upon these and are not stationary or are not necessarily local to the body. One of the reasons we use the term "Center" is that it is short for "Center of Gravity." Center of Gravity describes an average location of the "weight" of an object, by which that object can then be understood in terms of its motion through space and time, as well as an even deeper understanding through how that object is bound in rotation around that Center of Gravity. The "object" here is most often understood as the self, but can extend to refer to events, relationships, time periods, etc. There is a "natural" or starting point Center of Gravity for each "Center," but these change over the lifetime. For example, the Emotional Center of Gravity is in the Heart, or rests in the Heart Chakra. Your Moving Center of Gravity is in the Gut, or the Solar Plexus Chakra. Your Intellectual Center of Gravity is in the throat, the Vishuddhi, or the Throat Chakra. Your Instinctive Center rests at the base of the spine and throughout the spine, or the Root Chakra. This is where they begin, their natural resting point, and this is because your Centering DEVELOPS out of these points. You are born with Chakras. You are not born with Centering. Chakras are the electrical currents or connecting points through which the dimensions of Essence animate and live the life. The Personality, then, develops from those points the Centers of Gravity. To understand the depths of Centering, then, you would want to understand that your Centering describes the "brain" with which you use to process life, or the Center of Gravity around which you "rotate" within yourself, and the PART tends to describe that which you then "orbit" around. For example, an Emotionally-CENTERED person tends to rotate/process within the self in terms of how things, people, events, life moves them, inspires them, and bypasses their prejudices and logic to get to a place of direct perception. An Intellectually-CENTERED person tends to rotate/process within the self in terms of how things are expressed, make sense, are logical, formed, and bring them insight. Now, look at these in terms of Center and PART. The Part tends to describe that which one likes to orbit around as input for the primary Center. But it also describes what one reflects back from the surface of one's self, if you will. So the Emotionally-CENTERED navigates and processes in terms of Inspiration, but its Intellectual PART means that this is both given back to the world in Expression and is taken in from the world of Expression. Think of your Primary Center as that which holds you together, and your Part as that which you tend to gravitate toward and around and reflect. Now, what tends to happen over the course of a lifetime is that your Primary Center of Gravity (and all of your Centers of Gravity) move out and away from the natural resting place in you, and you place these in other people, in events, in the past, in the future, in relationships, etc. So, rather than your Emotional Center being within you in a way that allows you to process on your own terms, you may have placed your Center of Gravity in your Mother, in your mate, in your career, etc. This means that you then begin to look to that which you have placed your Center of Gravity for how to process and navigate. So while you may be Emotionally-Centered, your Center of Gravity for the Emotions is in the PAST, and everything is processed in terms of the gravity of the past. It could be said that there are 7 locations beyond the natural resting point, or the SELF, in which one places one's Center of Gravity: HEALTH or the Material World; CARETAKERS or The Past; LIFE, or the forces bigger than oneself; INDIVIDUALS, or intimacy and relationships; THE WORLD, or the faceless OTHERS; THE FUTURE, or Unknown; and SPIRIT, or non-specific dispersion. These are broad and overlapping categories, but can help our students to look at these areas where Centering may have a gravitational force. Keep in mind that even though you may be Emotionally-Centered, you may have several locations beyond you where there are Centers of Gravity for the Emotions. While it is not "bad" that one's Center of Gravity may beyond the self, it can be difficult for the older soul for this to be the case, because when one's Center of Gravity is in someone else, or in an event, etc., then SELF-AWARENESS IS LOST. For many, the Center of Gravity is a literal gravitational pull that draws one's attention on a regular basis. Does your Health take up a lot of your attention? Do Others take up a lot of your attention? Does your Relationship take up a lot of your attention? Do you find yourself stuck in The Past and comparing everything to that? Do you find yourself worried about The Future, or thinking that there are solutions found only in the Future? And so on. As you can see, none of these are probably unfamiliar to any of you because, regardless of your Centering, your Center of Gravity can be in many locations. To bring your Centers of Gravity back to the SELF is to bring your attention back to yourself. SELF-OBSERVATION is the only way. Self-Observation is Self-Awareness is the awareness of your part in the equation of all dynamics in your life. Self-Observation brings your attention BACK TO YOU, and therefore brings your Center of Gravity back to a resting place, to its origins. This is not to say that The World or your Health or your Past or The Future will no longer be relevant as factors, but that your emotions, thoughts, and actions will no longer be dictated by these. You will no longer rotate and process from within those external factors, but bring that rotation, that calm, that centering, that process back home to you. We know this may be a lot to consider, so we will now open the floor to questions. QUEUE IS NOW OPEN Yes, Maureen. Maureen: I can see I move towards INDIVIDUALS, with my Emotional Centering but interestingly as a Caretaker would. It does feel better when I get my power back. It's more restful. Maureen: I don't think that was a question. MEntity: Caring for others is not the same thing as putting one's Center of Gravity in Individuals. Caring feels good. Placing one's Center of Gravity in Individuals will often feel more like obligation, annoyance, dependency, etc., and one's Emotions (in this case) would be dictated by these Individuals. ClaireC: Michael, I am Emotionally-Centered, Intellectual Part. Although I am concerned about the Future, I feel the gravitational pull towards my heart most of the time. Would that constitute being self-aware according to your description, of bringing the rotation back home? MEntity: Claire, your question brings us to the next area we would have covered. It is important to differentiate between Self-absorbed and Self-aware. Self-aware is a sense of observation of how one is a part of the equation of dynamics in the life, whereas self-absorbed is cutting off of all sense of participation in the dynamics in the life, and a protection or defense of the self against those dynamics and equations. This comes when the Center of Gravity returns to the self, but is then protected or defended. We will leave to each of you to determine how self-aware or self-absorbed you may be, but the difference is usually in the sense of calm vs the sense of defense. To return to your question more specifically, we will say that if you feel that gravitational pull toward your heart, toward that resting place, but there is defense involved around your heart, then you may find that a return to self-awareness means allowing, inviting, and embracing one of those areas outside of the self that may have been the context for your hurt. If you find that the Center of Gravity in your heart brings a sense of calm, healing, and balance, then it is likely a state of Self-awareness. ClaireC: Thank you, that's helpful, Michael. MEntity: Your question prompts another piece of the puzzle, as well: Keep in mind that while each of you receive an indication for your Primary or habitual Centering, ALL Centers are active and working. So while you may be Emotionally-Centered, it may be that your Center of Gravity for the Emotions has returned to the heart, but your Intellectual Center of Gravity is in The Future. Just keep in mind the difference between that which dictates your processes (Center) vs that which your processes rotate around (Part). Diane_HB: So in the case above, the Future would dictate your thoughts but your feelings would be centered within the self? I'm not sure how this works. MEntity: Diane, it can go one of two ways: If there is Self-awareness, then the Emotions are processed on one's own terms, and this is then funneled into what one aims for in The Future. If there is Self-absorption, then the Emotions are still processed within the self, but in defense against and in reflection of the threat of The Future. To be clearer: reflected in what one THINKS and EXPRESSES into form about The Future. Does that make sense? Diane_HB: Yes, thank you Bobby: I'm Moving Center, Intellectual Part and looking at what you've described so far, I would guess that I tend to project my Primary Centering into relationships which would be toward the Intellectual Center? I'm guessing since I know the Mode deals with intimate relationships which falls on the Inspirational Axis. Does this sound like a fair assessment to you? MEntity: We will leave out the Mode for now as a means to help focus on this concept being discussed. Your Center of Gravity is certainly in Relationships. This means that your Actions, Feelings (how your body feels, processes, and moves energy), and your Effectiveness are often dictated by the states of your Relationships, and processed through those Relationships. This is then reflected back in your Expression (or lack of Expression), in your ideas, thoughts, and the form that your expressions take. In other words, in your case, your Moving Center of Gravity is dictated by and processed by your Relationships, and these revolve around the gravitational forces of you where your thoughts, ideas, reasoning, and insights take you, and are reflected in your thoughts, ideas, reasoning, understanding, and insights. If you were to move into Self-observation and awareness, you would bring the Center of Gravity home to you, and realize that how you feel, react, act, and your sense of effectiveness is less about how others understand you, how they express themselves, their ideas and thoughts, but about yours. Bobby: Ok MEntity: You are aware of this and we know that you can feel when your Center of Gravity comes home, and when it is left in Relationships. GeraldineB: I'm Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part. I interpret Rotation to be regular and/or constant movement, especially as one ages and expands experiences. While I've had severe Health issues and focus during this past year, in many ways I've avoided making it my sole Center of Gravity. I've not felt emotionally “attached” to my health. I think I've approached it far more from an Intellectual perspective. Can you describe the process that I'm using? Or is my Center completely elsewhere? MEntity: One's Center of Gravity tends to be drawn to places outside of the self for three reasons: TO ADD to the self (learn, grow, evolve, experience), to DISTRACT from the self (defense, fear, blame, anger, etc) or to BALANCE the self (healing, comfort, acceptance, understanding, etc). It is not a "bad" thing for one's Center of Gravity to be placed beyond the self. The dynamics of living require great fluctuation of location for the various Centers of Gravity. However, as one grows older in Soul Age, it begins to be more and more important to learn how to bring those home to the self in a way that allows one to be a conscious and aware participant in the life, and not just a receptor that will review later. In your case, your Emotional Center of Gravity is in THE WORLD, in OTHERS. How "others" behave, and what is happening in The World, have great impact on your state and processes of Emotion, Inspiration, and Perception. Your health is demanding and a great focus in the life at this time, but it is not where your Center of Gravity is. Your Center of Gravity still remains in processes that are dictated by Others and The World around you. GeraldineB: I can validate this. MEntity: Your health, however, has been the catalyst for you to bring that Center of Gravity home, to yourself, and a great deal of calm and healing and stability has been generated by these lengthy returns of your Emotional Gravity to the self. You have fluctuated between the Self-aware and Self-absorbed, and you may likely know when each of these are in effect. GeraldineB: Since I know that it's possible to monitor, I will definitely be paying more attention. MEntity: Though "monitor" is not particularly charged, it can be more inviting to consider self-observation rather than monitoring, as observation is participatory, whereas monitoring may provoke a division within. GeraldineB: Well, and Observation is my Mode, too :) MEntity: We will take a final question from Diane. Diane_HB: Would having your self-worth be dictated by others' opinions about you be an example of having one's Emotional Center of Gravity in Relationships? Diane_HB: And if it's not as bad as before but still recurs, is that an example of the fluctuation of the Center? MEntity: It can be, yes. It can also be in the vague and faceless "OTHERS" that are The World. Yes, the fluctuation may be felt in terms of how calm and how well you process on your own terms, or how distracted you are so that your processes are dictated by the terms of a Relationship or Others. Diane_HB: Thank you. This is a lot to think about. MEntity: We understand. That is why we offered this up in the context of "next wave" as it must be built upon and expanded. This transmission is merely a bit of a jumbled glimpse. But it is a beginning. Good day to each of you. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
