  1. ASK MICHAEL - Live Channeling April 6, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [Joeyann] How can you tell what I'm doing did the original Michael group set up the commune that they were talking And reading transcripts from 1973 and 74 there are going to set up a commune and I'd like to know if that was completed [MEntity] The talk of communes was that of the channels ideals at the time, and not our own. We had, nor have, any intention for encouraging or "setting up" a commune. Communes are an ideal that is appealing to many, particularly of those shifting from Young to Mature and into Mature, but for the Old Soul, it can be "hell." [Joeyann] Thank you that is how I pictured it myself [MEntity] This is not to say that there are no Old Souls in communes, but many of these only pass through these as sanctuaries for healing and respite, but not as a long-term investment. Of course, we are speaking in terms of what is currently understood as a template for what a commune is. This template is based on the shift from Young to Mature. The older soul ideal for a commune would be quite different. [David_Wlk] Hello Michael... And on Michael communities in general... would you be able to speak about Michael communities into the potential future, choosing to gather in particular environs around the world, with a particular interest in Australia as a safe haven. [MEntity] Are you asking if there are Michael students in Australia who can gather? If not, please phrase a question. [David_Wlk] Not so much about now - But for gatherings of M students there, or elsewhere, in the future. And why...? [MEntity] In terms of future gatherings, and locations for gatherings, this is entirely up to the students. We do not direct these. We merely "show up" if invited. [David_Wlk] I'm interested in places of gathering - safe havens into the future... [MEntity] Anywhere that there are those who are not preoccupied with survival struggles would be ideal. There must be, at least, some sense of safety created and sustained among those who would gather. Location is secondary. Beyond the obvious places that might be dangerous, there are any number of locations that could be described as inherently stable and safe. If you are asking us to pick a place, we would not do so. We are not limited to location, and we prefer to leave the assessment of safety up to those who are directly experiencing the challenges and pleasures of the Physical Plane for arranging locations. [Juni] There is a fair amount of information about C1E7 about how it is the "sweetheart" entity. As time allows, what is characteristic about its counterpart, C2E7, along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? Please summarize or expand for what you think is most useful/informative/helpful. [MEntity] First, all Entity Sevens would have as their Positive Pole that of INCULCATION, and as a Negative Pole that of ECLECTICISM. The variation of Essence Roles in any given Entity then colors how those Poles are manifested among the members. While Cadre 1, Entity 7 is primarily Servers and Priests, with Artisans, Cadre 2, Entity 7 is primarily Priests and Servers, with Scholars. Those slight variations lend very different "flavors" or colors to each of those Entities. In general, those from Cadre 1, Entity 7 tend to dance a finer line between chaos and order, whereas those from Cadre 2, Entity 7 tend to dance a fine line between isolation and understanding. The Scholarly infusion among the members seems to bring about a great need to understand, to make sense, to KNOW, and if this is not the case, these members tend to recoil in isolation, observation, and distance. This means that the repetitive themes (inculcation) for most members of Cadre 2, Entity 7 are those that push through everything that is confusing, overwhelming, and disorienting. These members will keep repeating and repeating an experience, scenario, relationship, lifetime, etc. until there is that understanding, that confidence in knowing. This may sound difficult, but it is the Positive Pole. It is how these members move toward expansion and evolution. It is a preferred path, despite its challenges. When in the Negative Pole, these members tend to feel fragmented and conflicted, divided among various facets of the life in a way that can sometimes feel fraudulent or as an imposter. This is Eclecticism here. It is a process of learning that is piecemeal, so to speak. A little bit here; a little bit there, but nothing comprehensive. This means that this Entity has had its fair share of members having "gone crazy," or struggled with mental stability. This is not exclusive to this Entity, of course, but it is a pattern among the members. For that reason, we might consider describing this Entity as having a theme in SANITY. The delicate and often difficult maneuvering through lifetimes for these members can be as wild and as fun as they can be implosive and crushing. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, I just love this description of the Server Casting that I found you wrote: [Kurtis] Server Casting might show up as a default, keen awareness of the needs, feelings, and behavior of those around you, sometimes to the extent of distraction. It might show up as a sensitivity and kindness that wishes only the best for others, while being rather frustrated, or even infuriated, with those who are inconsiderate and disrespectful of boundaries. It might show up as being in a position among friends and family that is more often than not turned to for insight, help, nurturing, availability, and understanding. [Kurtis] This was your answer to one of Al's questions a while back, and many have said these hold true who are Server Castings, so I was wondering if you could write the same format above, but for the Warrior Cast. [MEntity] Warrior Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of sincerity and authenticity in various experiences or people in the life. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who generate meaningful challenges to the Personality so that there is no sense of complacency or apathy. This attraction to those who might bring this honesty, authenticity, and challenge can mean that many fall short of the expectations of this fragment, and there may easily come a system of navigation that comes to be based on presumptions and prejudices. This, then, becomes a wall through which those who seek intimacy will have to "prove" themselves to the Warrior-Cast, even if that Warrior-Cast does not realize this is in place. This can bring about a rather dismissive stance from the Warrior-Cast that would, eventually, have to be addressed by that Warrior-Cast if the desire for authenticity and honesty outweighs the actual experience of it. The above is just one of many ways we can respond to such a question seeking elaboration, but this will suffice for now. [Bobby] I wanted to follow up on the information that you provided Anna regarding her cat, George. For clarification purposes, were you saying that every cat "body" on the planet is experienced through a different Entity? If not, would you elaborate a little more on how that works? Before, I had just thought that a single Entity experienced through ALL cat bodies on the planet [MEntity] Bobby, while there is far more collective awareness among those who are participating in a non-sentient species, the higher the medium is in the tier of Kingdoms, the more individualized the consciousness involved. Domestic Cats and Dogs are of the Higher Mammal Kingdom, and are, therefore, quite a bit more fragmented in consciousness. Until there is full Sentience, however, that fragmentation still remains with full access to, say, "Cat Central" that is, the field that sustains Felines. [Bobby] so cat central would be comprised of the individual Entities then? [MEntity] In a sense, yes. Let us offer the following as a means for clarification. In terms of moving through the 7 Kingdoms of a Physical Plane toward (potential) full fragmentation and Sentience in a particular species, it works much like this: Oceanic/Mineral Kingdom = Entire Design; Vegetation Kingdom = Energy Rings; Insect Kingdom = Cadres; Cold-blooded, Bird, and Lower Mammal Kingdoms are variations of Entities; Higher Mammal Kingdom is quite varied, but tends to be a single Entity or members of a single Entity. The higher the kingdom, the more attached to the individual bodies. The lower the kingdom, the more one acts as caretaker, or "deva" for an entire species or large group within the species. So "Cat Central" is more like an Akashic Records for that species to which those who are experiencing the species contribute. We often use the term "hive soul" for non-sentient incarnations because a body, group, or mountain can be "home" to a multitude of fragments/entities/cadres. So the Entity experiencing you through your cat is experiencing its entirely unique experience. It is not that your cat is simply one set of eyes among millions through which a crowd is experiencing. By the time there is the breakdown to incarnations as entities in a Kingdom, there is a cycle of lifetimes experienced with that particular species. For instance, an entity that is experiencing CAT, will have 7 Cat lifetimes. The incarnational cycle is 7 lifetimes for mammals. So there will be 7 as cat, 7 as dog, 7 as cow, 7 as pig, etc. Eventually, this movement of consciousness begins to fade for a planet and the multitude of species begin to die off. This is particularly true when there is little viable means for access to any other species as Sentient. If the Sentience of Gorillas can stabilize, more species will spring into Sentience for other Designs to follow. Otherwise, there may have to come an extinction of Humans, first. [Bobby] Ok, thanks. We'll definitely follow up on this with more specifics in the near future. I think it's fascinating. [Jana_K] Hello Michael, could you please talk about how Flow gets itself into positive poles through sliding to other Goals? Or how Flow can generally benefit from sliding to each of the different goals? [MEntity] Jana, Assimilative Overleaves almost always require the use of another Axis to move to its own Positive Pole. Though it is possible for the Neutral to move within itself, it is simply, nearly impossible. In the same way that any other Overleaf must tend toward the Positive Pole of its partner on an Axis as a way to return to its own, the Assimilative depends on this same process. Though the Assimilative Overleaves have access to the entire range of Overleaves in its category, habits do tend to form in regard to the particular challenges and interests that the Personality is developing for that lifetime. So one person's Flow may gravitate toward Growth as its means of return to a Positive Pole, and to the Inspiration Axis in general, while another may gravitate toward Acceptance, or the Expression Axis, as its means of return. In that regard, it is quite helpful for those in Flow to look at the life in terms of what may be a pattern for experiences at any given time. There will larger arcs and smaller arcs of experiences, so this would need to be considered, as well, but one can usually tell if the current emphasis is on a larger or smaller arc. So if your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with meaning, value, reflection and projection (inspiration), then your Flow would want to move to Growth or Re-evaluation as a means of return to Freedom. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing a struggle with contribution, participation, effectiveness, and movement, then you would likely want to move your Flow to Dominance or Submission. If your life patterns tend to be emphasizing struggles with making confident choices, blockages to intimacy, feeling present, and/or making a difference, then your Flow might want to move toward the Expression Axis as a means of return to its Positive Pole. The above are generic phrases to reference those Axes, and should not be considered definitive. We wished only to give examples for how one might assess where Flow may consciously or subconsciously move when in light of particular patterns in the life. The more consciously one can associate the patterns of the life with various key elements of an Axis, the more consciously one in Flow can then use the Positive Pole of one of those Goals to then help return to Flow's own Positive Pole. [Janet] Will you please provide information on Artisan Casting similar to what you just gave Kurtis for Warrior Casting? [MEntity] Artisan Casting might often show up as a default keen awareness of integrity and self-awareness among those with whom this fragment shares experiences and relationships. This Casting would tend to gravitate toward those who are consistent in "who they are" and are quite clear in their motives. From what we have seen, it can often drive an Artisan-Cast fragment to infuriated tears when others are not cohesive in their sense of motivations or ideals. This means this Casting will tend to gravitate toward those who are quite comfortably-defined, but flexible, in where, how, and who one is as individual, but when this comes to be few and far between, the Artisan-Cast can start to simply make up backstories for all of the participants in the life as a means to bring that sense of consistency. What happens, then, can be a falling into paranoia, gossip, and over-analysis, particularly when that Artisan-Cast cannot seem to get his or her bearings on the motives or ideals of a person or project. Depending on the path of the Artisan-Cast, he or she may then gravitate toward challenging people and experiences that provoke discord, and then this Casting will figure out how to bring harmony.
  2. This was originally posted by Sophie on June 18, 2013. This is from POF 6/17/2013. (Just for the record, I absolutely love my guinea pigs. I'd get ten more in a heartbeat, but I can't get any more from this point on due to expected lifestyle changes within a few years. :( I thought the decision on what to do with the last one wasn't going to be up for another two or three years, but it's probably going to be more like one year or less now. Neither "borrowing" another guinea pig, nor finding a new, appropriate home for an older, perhaps sickly or just plain cranky animal are "good" solutions at this point. So, depending on what circumstances are when it comes to it, I wanted to know if it "could" be done if need be. :( ) [Sophie] I'm currently quite worried about something else that has recently come up. My group of guinea pigs (medium sized South American rodents) has apparently decided to stage a collective exit, and I may have to decide what to do with the last remaining one sooner than I thought. Guinea pigs are not supposed to be kept alone, but, to my regret, I won't be able to get any more. All possible solutions for the dilemma are mediocre at best. Have you got any insight for me that might help me make a responsible decision in this matter? Is there any way that a single, older guinea pig might still have a »good« life? [Mentity] As in all cases where a species can prefer a social structure, there is always the potential for that structure to be broken, diminish, or vanish. The emotional or physiological impact of this is no more consistent among a non-sentient species as it is among sentient species. However, the Hive Soul can tend to remain connected to its group consciousness, even if there are no physical representations. [Sophie] I thought something like this might be the case. also, it feels like they're "planning" their deaths to occur roughly at the same time. And "they" are obviously actually a single entity [Mentity] For your concerns, we would say that it comes down to whether you can help to supply the social interaction that would normally come from those of the same species. Playtime, affection, chattering, etc. can be easy to provide. This will not be to trick the animal, but to simply provide interaction that can be comforting. Your providing the comfort is NOT the same thing as providing the social interaction of a herd mentality, which cannot be replicated. If you find that the interaction is not enough, you would probably be quite aware of this, and could then make your more difficult decisions.

    Non-Sentient Consciousness

    [Originally posted on 4th Jan 2013 in a forum discussion on nTLE:] Jana: So a Devic energy has a Spark but not Essence? And same goes for a non-sentient Animal? Is this a "different kind" of Spark? Troy: A flower, an atom, a dog, all act as a kind of "hive" for collections of consciousness that could be considered the equivalent of collections of sparks or essences, but without any individuation. It might be easier to just think of any form of non-sentience as having some degree of CONSCIOUSNESS that could evolve into Sentience (individual self-awareness). The more complex the organism, the more individualized the consciousness. A mountain range may have a multitude of Designs exploring it, and a school of fish may be a Cadre, and a dog may only host an entity, while non-sentient, higher primates might have a Cadence. Until the Intellectual Center of that organism is developed enough so that it tips over into having the capacity for choice in overriding of the body's hardwiring, it is a "hive soul," or a host for different degrees of consciousness and collections of consciousness. But in the end, they are all variations on the "spark."
  4. This question was originally posted by NTRAIN on 11/24/08. So, I've read a bit about Michael, and I have a few questions that I haven't been able to find elsewhere on the boards. My apologies if these have already been answered. According to Michael, what's the deal with animals? Do they have souls? Are there different levels like there are in humans? What about differences between species? How about plants and microorganisms? The world's population is estimated to grow to about 9.5 billion over the next 40 years. Most of the growth is expected to come from in the poorest and least educated countries. Presumably, these new persons will be younger souls. Is this correct? Is there any reasoning behind why there should be this influx of younger souls? Isn't the trend supposed to be an overall maturation of human souls? What does Michael have to say about artificial intelligence? If we were able to someday create viable AI that was indistinguishable from that of a human, would there be some kind of soul involved in that AI? Is real AI just impossible because of some limitation in that regard? FROM MICHAEL: Consciousness that is not committed to a sentient species for an incarnational cycle are free to explore and experience all forms of existence. All who are committed to a sentient species for an incarnational cycle already explored to their "hearts' content" before making that commitment. Outside of sentience, so to speak, physical life on a planet could be described as having 7 Kingdoms, or Levels. Consciousness can explore those levels/kingdoms sequentially and eventually commit to a sentient species of that particular planet. In lower kingdoms, consciousness is not quite differentiated and moves in masses (Compositions/Arrangements/Spheres/Rings), whereas the higher kingdoms then begin the process of more differentiated groups of consciousness (Cadres/Entities/Cadences). In the lower kingdoms that include such categories as Plants, Insects, Birds, Fish, Reptiles, and Lower Mammals, consciousness explores as "hive souls." This is often literally seen as hives, fields, herds, schools, and flocks, etc. Bodies move as a group and consciousness moves easily among all of those bodies with little differentiation. References to "devas, faeiries, and nature spirits" are referring to these forms of consciousness. In higher kingdoms that include high levels of intelligence, emotion, complex tool use and the raising of young, such as can be found in many domestic animals, the consciousness becomes far more differentiated, often down to a single Cadence (group of 7 fragments of one role), and will incarnate at least 7 lifetimes in that species. The higher mammals will incarnate as intimately with a sentient species (and most often with the same sentient fragment over time) as possible so as to learn from that sentient species and determine whether to commit to that sentient species, or not. The 7 Kingdoms are relative to the development of the Chakras/Centers that will be required for Sentience, if that is eventually chosen. The 7 Kingdoms/Levels are: Oceanic/Mineral (Instinctive/root) Plant/Vegetable (Higher Moving/sacral) Insects (Moving/solar plexus) Fish/Reptiles (Emotional/heart) Birds (Intellectual/throat) Lower Mammals (Higher Emotional/brow) Higher Mammals (Higher Intellectual/crown) The growth of the Human Sentient population is almost to its maximum in terms of body/essence ratio. There are nearly as many bodies on the planet at this time as there are fragments still physically incarnating. We doubt it will reach over 9 billion, unless there is a spike in the number of Essences incarnating in simultaneous bodies within the same time frame. The majority of Essences incarnating as Human are now within the Mature Soul Cycle, so any "new persons" would most likely be Mature. "Artificial Intelligence" is just as capable of sustaining Sentience as any "organic biology." There are several instances in your universe of Artificial Intelligence being Sentient and valid as its own Species. It is often the goal of one species to create/design a new species for sustainable sentience. Humans intend to do this and, as part of that process, continue to explore the fears and fascination along with that collective goal.
  5. OMW - Apr 19, 2014 - Your Future and You Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We understand that today we will speak of the concept of "the future," and how you play your part in that dynamic. To speak of "the future" is to speak of the concept of Time, so we will start there. We will do our best to simplify this concept in a way that makes sense and pulls together some of the more disparate ideas about how Time works both as part of the Physical Plane and beyond. In the simplest of terms, Time is the capacity to measure differences. While "in" the Physical Plane, the density and division among parts allows for this experience to be quite acute and meaningful. We have described the concept of Time as arising from the function of the Emotional Center. This is because this is the Center that uses the function of Perception. Perception is a kind of internal processing of experiences that can organize those experiences into meaningful ways. The measurement of differences across those experiences is the experience of Time. While within the density of the Physical Plane, this is not just processed internally, but observed as an external process, as well. Time does not disappear in the Astral Plane/Emotional Plane, but is no longer restricted to the constraints of density. However, Time is still experienced in quite a similar way as when Physical, just less constrained. Time exists as a function throughout all Planes to some degree, though exponentially less and less constrained. If this function did not exist, there would be no valid evolution, as evolution is dependent upon the measurement of differences, and as long as there is the capacity to measure differences and to organize those differences into meaningful ways, there is some concept of Time. The reason there is a great deal of emphasis on how there is "no time" beyond the Physical Plane is because the concept changes drastically. It is not that it no longer exists. It is simply very different. There is a measurable physics to this that explains why this is so. Time is a byproduct of a kind of monad, which is two parts that intrinsically generate a wholeness that would not exist for either part, alone. In this case, that is the Essence and Personality. In truth, this monadal dynamic is stacked in many ways for every fragment, such as the Essence/Role, Role/Personality, Personality/Internal Monads, Entity/Cadre, Cadre/Energy Ring, etc. And any relationship of meaning between two people. Or more. That dynamic of the parts GENERATES this phenomenon of Time. Within the framework of the Physical Plane, this is observable as a constant dance of differences that can be measured, and so Time passes. The more measurable, or more acutely measurable, the differences, the more significant Time is. This is why the higher the plane, and the fewer the measurable differences, the more meaningless Time becomes. So Time is GENERATED, or comes FROM, that dynamic dance of parts and the capacity to measure the variations between those parts. So Time is not something you pass through, but is something you create as you observe those differences. This may not be an easy concept to ponder, but it is worth playing with over time. Pun intended. An aside: the reason for Sentimentality as the Negative Pole of the Emotional Center is because this represents a refusal for allowing for those differences to be measured any longer. There is an insistence on remaining locked into a static position in Time. Within the Physical Plane, the more one manages to Manifest Essence, the more management one tends to feel over Time. This is because as one merges the Personality and Essence, the less one is in a constant state of measuring of minute differences, but moves on to larger scale differences. The scale of Perception expands to include more. The past is no longer something that anchors one, nor is it something to which one wishes to return, but is carried with him or her as part of who and how one is. Time comes with you, and is not left behind, or dragging you back to it. The future is no longer something to which one must fear, or worry about, but is something that is owned as GENERATED from you, not imposed upon you. One of the main reasons we cannot predict your futures is because we cannot see those acute differences between you and your Essence. That byproduct of Time is your own. It is unique to you. We can see more collective paths generated, but for individuals, this is far more impossible. We can see collective paths because this a larger scale of differences that we can measure. Think of this as a means to understand our position: If you are in a car that is headed toward a wall at 60 miles per hour, we can see that your probability is high that you will hit that wall. But what we cannot predict are all of the acute measurements of differences that you could make on the scale that would steer you away from that wall, or halt the car, or change how you hit that wall. On a larger scale, we can say with great accuracy that "there will be more than 100 car crashes today," because we can see that pattern more clearly on that scale. We share all of this, not to elaborate upon how we process and see Time, but more to point out that you are in a very similar position when it comes to observing your own life. In other words, you can "see" your next 5 years in terms of where the wall is that you may hit, so to speak, or the direction you would prefer to go, or the necessities that may be of obligation to attend, etc., but you CANNOT predict much more than that, and it is harmful to presume you should. You know if you need to find a job, for example, but you cannot predict how or where or when that job might be landed. This inability to predict those details is moot because that will not affect that fact that you KNOW you will find that job. This is a simplistic example, but this is how you learn to take control over the TIME you experience because when you KNOW your general future, this byproduct of you becomes aligned with that. You KNOW you need to find a job. The rest is a matter of those acute measurements of differences as you progress toward that point. The future is not much different from the past, then, in terms of Perception vs Sentimentality. Being anchored to your worries of fears in the future is Sentimentality. The future is simply memory, in reverse. Memory is the pivotal point of access to your experience of Time. It is your local Akashic Records, so to speak. In the same way you use memory, we use the Akashic Records. It is one of the great lessons of an Entity to learn how to access, read, and make sense of the Akashic Records. It is a similar thing for Essence's use of Instinctive Center, and for Personality and Memory. As a pivotal point in Time, your memory accesses experiences that shape how, who, and why you are in terms of your past, but also shapes how, who, and why you will be in terms of your future. So treat your future as you do your past, and your past as you do your future. Let yourself own that pivotal position that determines the quality and meaning of both, and allow this to be what generates your Time. KNOW your futures as you REMEMBER your pasts. For those who tend to "get what they want," or who have things "just work out," this state of knowing is not unfamiliar. It can sometimes be experienced as Trust, but can be more specific in terms of what you seek to create. Knowing you will find a job is not the same thing as doing the work of getting that job, so knowing is not enough. TIME is necessary. On these smaller scales, Time is generated from those acute measurements of differences between you and your goal. Before we continue, we will open now for questions or comments on what has been shared. Are each of you feeling you are making sense of what we have been sharing? [Maureen] Yes [EricM] yes [ViP1] it sounds good so far to me - so KNOW-ing simply means being convinced (by Trusting) that things will work out in the way intended or required? [ClaireC] Yes. [ViP1] And also, re this: "This is why the higher the plane, and the fewer the measurable differences, the more meaningless Time becomes." [GeraldineB] it makes absolute sense to me [MEntity] We would caution against the idea of needing to be convinced, or that things "will work out," as if no effort were required. To KNOW means you participate. [ViP1] Is this because the higher one goes through the planes, the more one has "remembered" more and more parts of the universe as being parts of oneself - thus resulting in fewer and fewer perceived differences? [ViP1] Yes, that sounded a little too much like "Faith" to fit [MEntity] To the latter question, yes, that is fair. [ClaireC] When career is no longer "in the picture", imagining the Future is more difficult. In my case, being in my 5th IM, I have trouble picturing myself, or re-imagining myself, re-inventing myself. Do you have any advice on this? [ClaireC] Re-creation versus recreation.... [MEntity] Not advice, but suggestions: when there are no major concerns or turning points or obvious needs, then the process of Knowing shifts into a process of Creativity. Knowing is a means of accessing or utilizing Trust, which is a form of memory, since Trust depends on experience. Creativity, in this case, is means of exploration by rearranging experiences to generate new ones. So if you shift your ideas about the future from Knowing to Creating, you may find the adventures and exploration that brings life into the Time you generate. Do you understand? [ClaireC] Yes, this resonates a lot with what I've been thinking lately. [MEntity] Any further questions? [ClaireC] Not from me, thank you, Michael. [ViP1] neither me [MEntity] What we suggest of each of you then, at this point, is to describe your futures to us. Let us know what you know. Let us know what you are creating. Take a moment to consider this, and reply. *************** [ViP1] I think I'm creating something without participating enough - but participating is something I've been learning how to do more consciously [GeraldineB] My future is all about learning. Learning more about human histories/timelines, projected future in China, continuing to applying and teaching the "teachings" as possible. [ViP1] And, I'm trying to bring the best of my past into the future, but I may have been Sentimental in doing so up to more recently [EricM] There is lots of travel in my future, and I think this will start opening up connections and agreements... [ViP1] I'd say my future is more about bringing "me" out into the world than before, when it was about fitting myself into what the rest of the world chose to do first [Maureen] I see me in my future – taking different “turns” than I would have in the past -- just to see what is around the corner. I have no big overblown “problems” -- so it would be more out of pure curiosity. [ClaireC] Overall, I see myself as a joyful old lady, telling stories and anecdotes, working in my garden, looking after my wildlife, more or less what I'm doing now :) [Maureen] David = wildlife? [ClaireC] My birds, bunnies, squirrels, ducks, wild geese, anything that comes into my yard to be fed. :) [Maureen] ;) [EricM] I've had one unexpectedly jarring experience earlier this year that seems to have stirred up my psyche in a way that seems to include dealing with Sentimentality as I have dealt with anxiety and worry from it. But, apart from that, I can see the travel and bringing in new experiences and connections [MEntity] How do each of you feel about the concept of Time being a product generated from you, rather than something you pass through, or is imposed upon you? [GeraldineB] I like the concept but I suspect that I'll fall back into "passing through" rather easily [Maureen] That way of looking at it definitely feels more freeing and more "fun". [ClaireC] I can see how finding meaning in experiences ties in here. When there is meaning in events and experiences, Time feels well spent, not wasted. [ViP1] I can see that the capacity to perceive differences, or at least the viewpoint that one sees those differences from, can be a product of how empowered one feels [MEntity] We shared this with you not as a new way of pretending Time works, but as a valid physics that would likely come to be known by your sciences. [EricM] I also like the concept, it feels a lot more empowering and freeing. [Maureen] It is certainly empowering. [GeraldineB] It's why those in a coma don't experience time until they awaken and start it up again [MEntity] We know the subject today was of your future, and we cannot consider a better means of speaking to you of your futures than for helping you to know and create those with comprehension of how Time works. The rest is up to you, of course, but having these concepts can mean the difference between feeling as if you are a product of Time, or that Time is a product of you. We will be right "there" along with each of you as you measure those differences and organize them into meaningful experiences. [Maureen] How can these concepts of time help me, specifically, to want to go to sleep Michael? [MEntity] If you can shift your aim away from the control over time to the creation of it, it may free you to a great degree. In other words, it is no longer a THING against which you must struggle, but is a state that is present no matter what. And the more quality you can add to that state, the less it will pull you, divide you, or envelop you. Practice making this statement in the kindest way possible for your moments of time you wish to generate rest: "LET ME BE HERE NOW." "LET ME BE HERE NOW" and as you allow this, shift to "I AM HERE NOW. I AM HERE NOW" [ClaireC] Just like Michael! [Maureen] "I am so pleased to be here, now". [Maureen] Thanks Michael [MEntity] We do not toss phrases around simply to be socially courteous. "We are here, now" matters as a function of our approach through this channel. [ViP1] Can you describe in more detail how the monadal dynamic between Personality and Essence generates time? Is it simply the result of the difference in scale between what Essence can perceive, vs Personality? [MEntity] When there is entanglement between two parts that generate a whole, the differences in shifts between the two create Time. Evolution for Essence CANNOT exist without Personality. The changes made through the choices of Personality propel the choices of Essence, and the changes made through the choices of Essence propel the evolving Personalities. This dynamic is true between Essence and Entity, Entity and Cadre, Cadre and Energy Ring, and so on... [ViP1] And if there is time for a second: how do hive souls, without fully developed Emotional centers, perceive/process Time? [MEntity] In terms of hive souls, this is still true in a similar way as the Entity vs body within a species. It is true on larger scales, too, such as that of Design vs planet, Energy Ring vs Kingdoms, and continuing down the fragmentation vs representation of that fragment. [ClaireC] Do these choices of Essence affect all the Concurrent Personalities of that Essence? [MEntity] Claire, yes. [ClaireC] So, progress made by one Personality is beneficial in this lifetime to all the Personalities? [MEntity] More so than one can imagine. [ClaireC] Awsome! [EricM] This may have already been discussed, but I'd like to know what suggestions or ways this concept of time can help someone in the throes of Sentimentality or worry about the future or perhaps those recovering from an experience that leaves them anxious or Sentimental. I ask because I've been working on this myself, and have seen others going through it, and it can feel incredibly daunting...very much like you are a product of time or 'ruled' by it [MEntity] Eric, this solution would go back to the simple mapping among the Centers for return to a Positive Pole. In this case, turning to Insight or Productivity can help one to return to Perception. In other words, using the Positive Pole of the Intellect, INSIGHT, can help one to ask, "what am I learning from this?" "What did I learn from this?" "What can I take from this?" This line of questioning inherently ignites Perception without threat of abandoning the symbolism, freeing one from the lockdown in the past. Or using the Positive Pole of the Moving Center, PRODUCTIVITY, to ask, "what can I do with this?" "What will I do with this experience?" "What do I do with this now?" DOING something with what you remember, or LEARNING something from what you remember, brings you back into Perception. Do you understand? [EricM] yes [ViP1] Is that the same as being proactive with the results of what has happened to you, Michael? [MEntity] Yes, it can mean this same thing [ViP1] ok, thanks Michael [MEntity] We think we have shared a good start for each of you to consider for your futures, as well as your pasts, and this can be built upon from here. We will conclude here, for now. Good day to each of you.
  6. Michael Speaks 101109 Open Floor [Michael Entity] We are here. Hello to each of you. [QUESTION] Tremendous amounts of seismic activity have occurred in the south pacific recently. What is the likely outcome of this? Does this portend something bigger to come? [Michael Entity] As you know, we cannot and do not predict, but we can say that the pattern does appear to indicate one of two major directions: That these releases are helping to alleviate a massive plate movement, or that it is leading up to a massive plate movement. The Pacific Plate appears to be shifting more drastically in relation to the Antarctic Plate, due to shifts in temperature and water allocation. At this point, the potential for either direction appears to be equal. The reason we cannot predict the momentum in one direction or the other is because this is one of many factors that would be a part of a Global Nexus building over the next couple of years. In other words, one world would have a massive plate shift, while the other shows a decline in seismic activity altogether. [QUESTION] Is it possible for what is happening to cause a slipping of ice off the Antarctic plate? [Michael Entity] It would be nearly impossible, but not impossible, to have the ice cap "slip," at least in a way that is dramatic. It would more than likely require a meteor impact for that to occur. [QUESTION] How are hive souls different from a human essence with concurrents? Is it the number of incarnations with a human essence having a much smaller number? Or is it a qualitative difference of the character of these different incarnations? Are hive souls also involved with soul levels? [Michael Entity] Hive Souls are different because they are not fragments, and they are not Sentient by standards we use to define Sentience, which would be that one is in the final exploration of the Physical Plane as a Fragment who is evolving Self-Awareness combined with exponential capacity for Choice. Concurrents could be compared to the dynamic of Hive Souls, except that Concurrents have no awareness of one another and each Personality is individual, whereas in Hive Soul dynamics, there is a constant awareness of "the hive," or "species central," so to speak. We use the term "hive" because it is exactly what it is. The consciousness of each animal can come and go to that "hive" as often as necessary, and returns to that hive between lives, much like one might see in a bee hive, where all of the bees come and go as individuals, but always in coordination with one another, and sharing the same central home. In that regard, one could consider all of one's individual lifetimes as the "bees" to the "hive of Essence," but that is where the comparison would end, unless one were to look at the process of Sentience on a much grander scale, then Tao would be the "hive." All forms of consciousness move through some organized process of evolution, but until the level of Sentience, those forms of consciousness can opt back out of the process and return to Tao, move to other planetary systems, remain in one level for as long as is desired. Once there is the leap into Sentience, the commitment is permanent in terms of evolving exponentially. Consider an amusement park as an analogy: All forms of consciousness can ride any and all of the major rides, as often as desired, and even leave the amusement park for other amusement parks, or leave the amusement park circuit altogether and go "home." However, Sentience could be compared to a massive slide that, once boarded, has a natural momentum that pulls one forward and completely to the end, with very little room for abandoning the momentum. [QUESTION] How many essences do most essences choose to do many external monads with? Getting confused with what I've read, can't find much in depth material. I know we do them all at least once, and to get to the love monad you do a certain group of them with the same essence, and some choose to do more than one love monad. That seems like a lot of monads to get through. Also, I can't find any description of the love monad beyond the general experiencing agape, etc, and it's not necessarily a mate thing, could be other relationships, right? Is this something usually done with ET and/or just a few other close essences? [Michael Entity] Most fragments tend to work in all of the major (classic) external monads in a way that leads to a Love Monad with at least 12 other fragments. Once the Love Monad is completed, this fragment becomes what we refer to as a Heart Link. Most fragments tend to develop at least 12 Heart Links. This may seem like a lot of external monads to complete, and it is, but keep in mind that many of these can be completed with multiple fragments within the same lifetime; many can be reciprocated within a single lifetime; and as Essence evolves and experiments with Concurrents, this adds more possibility for fulfillment. Over approximately 100 lifetimes or more, this is easily accomplished. Many fragments choose to fulfill external monads with those Essences most available and/or already linked, such as Essence Twins, Traveling Companions, the Primary Task Companion, and then those Task Companions who are added after the cycle begins. The Love Monad is not necessarily a final monad, but simply the Monad that moves two fragments into a final process of Agape. In other words, the commitment to truly Love one another has now been made. In that commitment, the Love Monad would show up as a commitment within the lifetime to "re-visit" literally or symbolically ALL Monads that have come to be fulfilled with one another. The reason for this is because True Love, or Agape, requires comprehension, and the Personalities attempt to truly grasp the magnitude of each other in the Love Monad. Most try to complete the Love Monad within a single lifetime, but we see that up to three lifetimes tend to be the average. [QUESTION] Does this imply that the Love Monad occurs between fragments of the same soul age? [Michael Entity] Yes, and rarely before the Old Soul cycle. [QUESTION] Are the "classic" ones that full set of about 30 I've seen around various places, or a subset? [Michael Entity] The "classic" set of monads have been listed elsewhere, yes, but we will also include those in the final transcript. [see end of transcript] Though the classics are often preferred, the Love Monad is not limited to having only done the classics. Many Love Monads arise from including a few rather rare or original external monads. Once a Love Monad is completed, ALL "charge" between those fragments is neutralized. In other words, those with Heart Links tend to rarely feel more than soft admiration and embrace of one another. [QUESTION] I'd like a little more insight into the whole enabling deal [how to tell if you are an enabler, and what to do if you are an enabler]. [Michael Entity] There are various forms of "enabling," but the generality is that this is a state of passive or active contribution to the harm of another person in the guise of support. The most definitive factor in determining if one is enabling, or not, is if your presence is contributing to the harm of yourself, or to the other. We emphasize "PRESENCE," as it does not have to be an active presence, but can be a passive one, that helps contribute to the harm to yourself, or to the other. Presence plus Harm equals "Enabling." We will further define "Harm" as systematic or sudden reduction in the capacity for choice. Putting all of this together, one can then help oneself determine if one is "enabling," if one's presence is actively, or passively, contributing to the reduction of another's, or your own, capacity for choice. If one discovers enabling is in effect, the next step is, of course, to make your choice as to whether to continue enabling, which is a valid choice in itself, to remove oneself from that dynamic altogether, or to take action in a way that contributes to the return of choice for both parties. The key in your next step, then, would be CHOICE, which helps to counter all harmful effects of Enabling. If one chooses to continue enabling after one has realized that is the dynamic, it will require a reduction of consciousness and a move into a division within the Personality. This is because, however regressive one's behavior can be, one's awareness cannot be unlearned. You now KNOW you are enabling, and you choose to continue to contribute harm. This will require a division within, as one part is fully aware, and the other part manages the habitual behavior. However, that part that is aware will now always be there, and it will most likely not be able to be ignored, however habitual the behavior continues. This is why we say that even the choice to continue can help counter the effects of enabling. In a sudden moment, everything can change, now that this awareness is in place. In other words, many will continue to enable, until they simply cannot. If you chose to remove yourself from the enabling dynamic, this leaves the other Personality to either find someone else to enable, or to find effective help, or to spiral further into his or her own demise. However, in a situation where one has not only become ineffective in bringing about healing and positive change, but has moved into a dynamic that is actually causing harm to both parties, then the choice to leave is not abandonment. It is love. For many fragments, the choice to step outside of the dynamic of self-harm that is generated by another fragment is one of the most difficult, and most loving choices, a Personality can ever make. It is entirely counter-intuitive to step outside of that dynamic, and often it is met with devastating feelings, but it is a choice that is rooted in absolute love, not only in that it is countering the harm that is built into the dynamic of enabling, but in that it is a trust in both parties to return to a capacity of choice that is higher than when together. The choices made beyond that cannot be guaranteed to bring about beautiful results, but the capacity for choice is there. Beyond continuing to enable, or removing oneself from the enabling dynamic, there is then the choice to take active measures to increase the capacity for choice for both parties. If this choice is made, it does not guarantee that the one who was enabled will be receptive to this increase of choice, but as one is in a state that is decreased capacity for choice, it is a fair and legitimate choice of another fragment to "intervene," if possible. Intervention may, or may not, be received, but the effort to bring this to the previously-enabled fragment's life is a valid choice, if you choose to do so, and if the resources are there to help you to do so. [QUESTION] One wonders whether animals are happy in zoos, but on the other hand zoos are nowadays helping to save threatened species. Does the positive outweigh the negative? [Michael Entity] On a small scale, there are a number of zoos where the impact is for preservation, sanctuary, and rehabilitation, and these zoos are fairly clear and open in that agenda. We see most animals in that scenario to find value in the experience as this contributes to their own evolution of consciousness. Anytime animals can be in close proximity to Sentience while capable of maintaining their own level of capacity for choice, much is gained. However, most zoos do not share this agenda, and simply exist as a business for generating city or personal revenue, contributing to the unnecessary confinement, capture, and harm of those animals involved. We cannot say that the positive outweighs the negative, but we can say that if one is concerned, it is usually obvious which zoos are sanctuaries, and which are businesses. [QUESTION] So one can visit a sanctuary zoo with a clear conscience? [Michael Entity] That would be a question only you could answer. We know that many can visit the most harmful of zoos and still have a "clear conscience," while others can visit the most beneficial of zoos, and leave feeling a deep guilt or sorrow. However, we can say that if one's concern is the comparison between benefit vs destruction, then those zoos focused on sanctuary, etc, may be more comfortable for the compassionate Personality. Compassion and consciousness grow parallel to one another, and are often linked with sensitivity. If one's consciousness and compassion has evolved to a point where these questions are important, and one feels that the participation in one zoo contributes to one's idea of good work, over the work of another, then the choice may be an easy one for that individual. For another fragment who is not emphasizing broad compassion and consciousness, then the choice may simply be as to which one would bring more personal joy or entertainment. We wish to point out that we see all choices as valid, but in terms of contributing to the choices available to non-sentient species vs the reduction of choice for that species, we do see this concern as growing parallel to one's evolution of consciousness. For instance, one can easily remove the choice of a fellow Sentient fragment through murder in earlier lifetimes, but this eventually falls away as a solution as consciousness evolves. The same concern begins to extend to other species as that evolution continues. This is not to say that an Old Soul will not, or cannot, murder, or that an Infant or Baby soul does not have compassion and concern for other species, but that the progression is fairly consistent in terms of your question becoming an important to the fragment. [QUESTION] Hello, Michael. Based on the Teachings we've received so far, I cannot validate the truth of whether or not Cetaceans are an ensouled family of animals for a number of reasons: ...1) Michael has said that Cetacea are a transplanted group of Essences who are finishing off their Grand Cycles started elsewhere, but nearly gone extinct due to technological/civilization abuses. Also, their ensoulment started prior to humans. ...When did cetaceans first ensoul on earth? [Michael Entity] About 40 million years ago by Earth standards of measuring time. The original line of species from the original star system were land and water mammals who would resemble something more like variations of swimming wolves that could walk upright. The line of species on Earth that were used for continued ensoulment of the 3 Harmonies (about 5 million entities) was an Order that had some genetic history of land and water life, as well, but had become water-bound, with no appendages capable of environmental manipulation, and had developed the Intellectual Center to a point where a leap into self-awareness and capacity for choice could be ignited by the ensoulment. ...What was the average soul age level? [Michael Entity] The average Soul Age at the time of the transition was early Young. ...Have they continued to start new infant souls? [Michael Entity] Infant Souls stopped choosing these species millions of years ago, though 1 additional Harmony that had not begun its incarnations in the previous species joined the 3 who transferred, and those fragments know only Earth as their Sentient cycles. Most of the fragments who have become notorious in their curiosity and exchange with Human Sentience come from that Harmony. ...2) Cetaceans is a biological order, not a species -- just as primates is an order, not a species. The order Cetacea contains about ninety species, all marine except for four species of freshwater dolphins. ...Which species of Cetaceans are ensouled? [Michael Entity] The concept of "Species" is a relative concept, and one that is not consistent, complete, or agreed upon, even within your scientific communities. We use the term loosely, as it does have a fair amount of accuracy as a reference. In terms of Cetacea, nearly all species are ensouled, except the various Families known as the River Dolphin. Within the Cetacean world, "species" are experienced more in the way that Humans experience "Race," with no real differentiation between those Whales with teeth and those without. ...3) Michael has said that culture and social interactions are major parts of the evolution of humans' soul ages. The continual use of choice generates intense relationships, and karma. Civilization has grown out of a need to stabilize the effects of weather irregularities and to allow for surpluses. ...While I can understand that civilization may not be necessary in a stable environment and food supply, especially if one is nomadic, the impact of social interactions and karma seems necessary for soul evolution. None of the information about roles, overleaves, or even soul age level seem to apply to cetaceans. Nor do they seem to share a culture. Can you explain? [Michael Entity] The vast variation of cultures among Humans, however foreign, frightening, or familiar, all share mediums that are natural to your species. The same is true of Cetaceans who do not have the same capacity for manipulating their environment in a way that you would recognize their cultures, but in ways that are relative to their capabilities. In many cases, there are common grounds, but even within that common ground, it may not be recognizable to Humans as a "culture" by Human standards. Areas of culture that you might recognize would be in their dance, games, singing, poetry, families, story-telling, etc. These are areas that are handed down, taught, have become tradition, have evolved over time, and could be seen and heard by you for the most part, though it may not make sense to you. Beyond these common areas, art is quite important to Cetacea and this is done in an arena that you might recognize as a telepathic, or psychic, arena. Constructs of thought and feeling can be shaped in ways that can be transferred and shared among the various species. Many of the larger Whales might be experienced as floating art galleries, as they tend to store and collect art. Cetacea do not have religions as Humans do, but they do have their mythologies that could be said to be similar to religious mythology. Most of their mythologies are consistent and shared across species, all being variations of their history of commitment to rise above harm and violence, to cultivate arts, and to find their way home to the stars. Human mythology is similar, since Human Sentience was also transported from species off-planet, but Humans have turned their mythologies away from being a reflection of origin and intent, to being a process and mirror for dysfunction. Soul Age, Levels, Overleaves, etc, are just as valid among Cetacea as they are among Humans. There are instances when our students may recognize the validity of these factors in behaviors that are familiar, or as exchanges between Cetacean and Human. For the most part, your question is similar to a statement such as "all Chinese look alike," when that statement couldn't be further from the truth. That statement, as well as your question, merely reflects a lack of intimate experience with the individuals that make up that group. We can assure you that there is a spectrum of personalities among Cetacea, from wise Whales and wise-ass Whales, and beyond. As with any group of Sentience that has variations of body types, cultures, history, current circumstances, etc, Soul Ages tend to gravitate toward one group or another. For instance, in Humans the "Black Race" used to be primarily Mature Souls as slavery was imposed, and the fight for freedom and rights was building. Once a fair amount of freedom was secured, Young Souls have now moved into that "race" as a means to take advantage of that freedom. For many years, Servers found great value in building up the United States, but once the United States moved into a Young Soul paradigm, Servers shifted their population to China. Now that Mature Souls, and a return of emphasis to family and support is building, Servers are returning to the U.S. This same kind of movement of Souls and Soul Ages is within the Cetacea. The species known as Orca are more exciting to the Infant and Baby Souls, whereas the larger Whales are more appealing to the Older Souls. Now Orcas tend to be popular among Young Souls, and this contributed to an entire entertainment industry on land with Humans, as these Young Souls rebel against their cultures and insist that they can be "stars." Many of the familiar Dolphin tales of rescue and nurturing of stranded humans are Mature Souls, as well as the occasional beached, confused, or tragic incidences among Whales and Dolphins. Whales and Dolphins drawn to Human exchanges tend to be Sages and Scholars. Of course, within all of this are the Overleaves. In short, unless you are able to truly submerge yourself into another group, the things that you find familiar may not be found among that group, but that does not invalidate the reality of their souls or their cultures. ...4) Michael has said that the essential component necessary to a intelligent species to make the leap to sentience and ensoulment is imagination. Choice requires imagination and creative thinking. Whales, dolphins, and porpoises are generally deemed very intelligent, but there seems little evidence of imagination. Humpback whales display creative thinking in their use of encircling herring in a ring of bubbles that forces them into a ball for easy capture. But for all of the millennium that humans and cetacea have co-existed, none of the cetaceans seem to have much understanding or lore about avoiding human hunters. Cetacean language may include song but it doesn't include historical or teaching stories. The oceans are vast and unpredictable; they are not humans' natural element. Yet, they managed to hunt several species of whale to near extinction. How was this possible? [Michael Entity] Humans hunt, enslave, murder, and torture EACH OTHER on small scales and large scales. The fact that this can still occur, even with all that has come to be recorded and learned by your own species, does not negate your imagination, capacity for choice, and sentience. The fact that Humans can extend this violence and impose it upon other creatures, does not, in any way, negate their capacity for feeling or suffering, let alone their capacity for choice, imagination, and sentience. One of the primary motivating factors for Humans is Fear. One of the primary motivating factors for Cetacea is Love. In the same way that most Humans will gauge their options through a filter of fear, Cetacea tend to filter their options through Love. This means that their "lore" and teachings are rooted in trust, open-mindedness, affection, and innocence. Despite the fact that a Cetacean species may be hunted to the point of extinction, Cetacea will not give up the concept that there is hope for peaceful relations with every other species. In addition to this, their concepts of death are quite different from Humans', and their emphasis is on life and living moment to moment, rather than in a way that is entirely based in fear and preservation. Keep in mind that this is a group of Sentience who destroyed themselves and the habitable status of their original planet. They are simply not going to go down any path of choice that hints at war or fear. This is not to say they do not experience fear, or choose fear, but that they do it in other ways unrelated to survival. Every group of Sentience moves through cycles that could be described in terms of Overleaves, and for the past Century, Cetaceans have been in Spiritualist cycle, with Idealism before that. The new century cycle is one of Realism, and this may help temper some of the blind faith and naivety that has been a part of their societies for a couple of centuries. Humans have moved out of a cycle of Cynicism and into Idealism, tempered with Pragmatism. As for imagination, most of this you simply cannot see. To insist that one species use the tools, or the familiar media, that another species uses as a means to determine intelligence and imagination, is simply an invalid method of interpretation. [QUESTION]...Additionally, since karma is created when sentient species kill sentient species, how will the karma be balanced between the whale hunters and the whales? Or even the tuna fisherman and the dolphins? [Michael Entity] Karma is only generated if INTENSITY is generated on at least one side of the scenario and attached to the other. With Cetacea inherently forgiving and naive, very little Karma has been generated. In instances where Karma has been generated, it would be burned in the same way that you understand Ribbons to be burned among Humans. This would either be a reversal of the scenario in another life, or a creative form of balance that is focused on rescue and saving lives. In other words, for example, many Whale hunters from the past are now activists for their protection. *** End of session *Classic External (relationship) Monads Teacher/Student; Parent/Child; Imprinter/Imprinted; Siblings (brother/brother, brother/sister, sister/sister); Husband/Wife; Leader/Follower; Attacker/Victim; Healer/Healed; Rescuer/Rescued; Integrator/Eccentric; Hopelessly Loving/Hopelessly Loved; Passionate/Repressed; Dependent/Independent; Pivotal Facilitator/Facilitated; Slovenly/Meticulous; Passive/Aggressive; Adept/Apprentice; Artist/Patron; Deserter/Abandoned; Profligate/Tempered; Innocent/Sophisticate; Promiscuous/Impotent; Master/Slave; Player/Pawn; Defender/Defended; Hidden/Disclosed; Slander/Slandered; Jailer/Prisoner; Tandem Monad; Love Monad Note from Janet: In the comments following the original posting of this session, the following exchange occurred which may be relevant to those reading this transcript: Comment: Very interesting Troy, I do have a question about humans on occasion incarnating into cetaceans or the other way around. I simply cannot abide Micheal's take that this does absolutely not happen. I tend to feel I have had at least one lifetime in this form while still doing the human rounds, so to speak. Can you comment on why essence might choose to do this and what reasons would predispose essence to do this as opposed to maybe sticking to a one species at a time kind of thing. I imagine that in life there have to be the occasional exceptions to the rule. Look at Bill Gates' wealth, Micheal Jackson's talent, Hitler's atrocities etc etc Response from Troy: My first response is that Bill Gates, Michael Jackson, and Hitler don't represent anything similar to an "exception to the rule" that might be similar to an exception like Sentience leaping around in different species. Those people are still living within the context of being human and using the same playing field we all have access to. They may be exceptional to the average life, but not exceptional to any rule. But Michael has addressed this sense of memory for some as being Cetacean, and Michael has said that these memories vary from fantasy to astral reviews to being friends with other Sentient Essences, and memories other Grand Cycles. FANTASY: Some of us identify strongly with what we see as such innocence and wisdom and peace, so we create fantasies about having been one of them. ASTRAL REVIEW: When it's from astral review, it's usually from between lives when we had taken part in the harm of a Cetacean. Michael has explained that our astral review always includes a complete examination of any harm we caused to any creature. Any time our consciousness gets to a point where we begin considering the consequences of our actions on other creatures, sentient or otherwise, we generate a kind of self-karma that we work through. So if we pointlessly squash a bug, bite into a hamburger, and we realize that our actions contributed to the harm of a creature, or if we are on a whaling boat and start to realize that something is very painful and upsetting about that exploitation, we explore the flip side in our astral review. That means we literally cast a part of our consciousness into an animal, insect, bird, or reptile and experience whatever we did that caused their demise or wounding. If an incarnated animal isn't in any situation that could lend that experience, then it will be done entirely on the astral, and though the physical experience may be compromised a bit, the emotional experience would be equal. This is how we begin to truly grasp compassion beyond the limits of our species. FRIENDSHIP: Michael says it's not uncommon at all for groups of Sentience who are incarnating in different species that do not interact on the physical plane in any meaningful way to still develop friendships outside of the Physical Plane. There are a lot of fragments throughout the body of students of Michael who are good friends with many Cetacean Sentients. And probably just as many who have friends (as Essence) from off-planet, as well. Michael has said that when the species don't interact in a way that can build relationships, then the Essences will explore each others' species and environment during astral review, sometimes even acting as a guide while one is incarnated. GRAND CYCLES: And then Michael has also said that there were other species similar to Cetaceans in our past Grand Cycles that, as we grow older in soul age, we might be remembering. In the end, Michael says that you can believe whatever you want, though, of course. Further comment from Geraldine: I think that something that you're not taking into consideration is the long period of time where your Essence was exploring the beginning of their Grand Cycle and experimenting on the physical plane. This is when each Essence spends time as all of the beginning and simplest elements, minerals, rocks, simple animals and plants -- all the way on up to being Hive Souls and Devas. All seven kingdoms of existence are experienced in order to develop Essence to be ready to ensoul into a species. Not all of these experiences are spent on earth and many Essences who do experience a kingdom or two will move onto another planet elsewhere on the physical plane. While I've read elsewhere that humans and cetaceans experience cross-species ensoulment, I tend to go along with Michael on this one as it's consistent with all of the rest of their teachings about Role in Essence development. It's very possible that you have a whale totem animal and are picking up those "vibes." I know that I have a Blue Whale as one of my totem animals.
