  1. December 7, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Topic: Reality Shifts Full Transcript [Michael_Entity] We are here. One Moment. We have been asked to discuss the topic of Reality Shifts, or Parallels, or Nexus. These are interchangeable terms and we do not have a preference. The concept of Parallel Universes and Shifts is not complicated, yet its implications can appear boggling to the mind of one Personality. Parallels are the creative results of the Personality. The Essence does not direct or orchestrate these variations. They are entirely Personality-based in their creations. Although Essence generates the capability to have multiple realities, it does so at the direction and feedback from Personality. Since Essence has a “higher perspective,” it is always aware of all probabilities, but the Personality, using its own tools, is granted a true sense of freedom because of the possibilities of Parallels. “Parallels” can be defined as variations on a lifetime within the SAME SPACE, different DIMENSION or frequency, if you will. They are defined and differentiated only by the filter of the individual Personality vehicle. That is part of its inherent traits, to filter out what is “not” reality to itself. The body literally acts as a “radio” which is tuned into a very specific “band” in a wide spectrum of frequencies or dimensions. A lifetime can “spin off” as many or as little variations on that life as there were major choices, and each parallel can then “spin off” from itself as well. Each lifetime, then, can end with several variations on its timeline. This contributes a great deal to “past life” confusions and inaccurate historical data. Your first lifetime in a body is the only lifetime that has ONE single timeline and parallel. This quickly changes, of course. For purposes of simplicity, we will confine most of tonight’s study to a single lifetime and its parallels. A Reality Shift can consist of a MERGING or DIVERGING. In the process of a DIVERGENCE, you are creating variations on a lifetime to spin off. When you are experiencing a MERGING, you are fusing “back together” with another Parallel that has grown so similar to another that it is no longer necessary to remain “separate.” These two types are always happening when there is a Nexus, but usually there is a larger theme of one or the other at work. Currently, as most of you can guess, there is a DIVERGENCE happening. There are three levels to each Shift. There is an INDIVIDUAL Level, a COMMUNITY Level, and a GLOBAL Level. Each year brings at least one of each. Most fragments go through a major Individual shift around March to May. On a Community Level, this means your personal intimates and support groups, or social and family world will go through as a “whole,” spinning off variations or merging. This usually happens around June to August. Global Shifts occur around November to January and creates massive group spin offs as the collective consciousness makes choices together. The creation of a potential Shift is done through Decisions, as differentiated from CHOICES. Decisions are the “little things” in your everyday life. Deciding to go to work or not; deciding to bathe or not; deciding to take a risk or not; take a different route home; deciding on a trip or not; etc. Every single Decision contributes to the path to a Divergence or Merging, and more specifically, each Decision leads to a pivotal CHOICE. We differentiate Decisions from Choices in that a Decision is not life altering, but a Choice is. A simple Decision may appear to lead you into a vastly different world, but within that, you will make your CHOICE. Decisions then act as branches or vines within your life that will either diminish, branch off on “their own,” or intertwine back into another at the time of Choice. During the current Shift, it is a Global Divergence that is occurring, but within this is a massive Merging of Individual and Community Levels. A Merging is marked by things “disappearing” or “appearing” that seem then to be a natural part of the reality, but “was not there before” or “was there, and is gone”. This is most noticeable on the Individual Level and is usually dismissed as confusion. As Older Souls, it is your option to observe these phenomena or not, but it is Good Work to acknowledge them freely as this moves you into higher degrees of Essence Manifestation. The whole concept of “creating your reality” stems from the validity of creating Parallels using the Tools of Decisions and Choices. The more consciously you make these, the more your Reality shapes itself to your ideals. We will note here that a shift in a Parallel can change your “past,” as the “past” is as “created” as the “future.” When Parallels Merge, they then “fold in” the “different” pasts and your consciousness will then “make sense” of that as it can. Older Souls may find they have literally TWO memories or more of a personal event in the past. On a Community Level, the very same people having shared a very specific event will remember completely different scenarios, sometimes disturbingly distinctly different than each other. There is never “bleed through” from another Parallel, unless there is a “mutual” exchange and interest. “You” in your Parallel can observe other Parallels and draw from them to a degree, but you are never imposed on or affected by a “different you.” For instance, in a parallel where a family member may die, you do not cry “here” necessarily. However, for those of you who actively observe and work with Parallels consciously, a bleed through can begin to occur and this can be quite disorienting. We will pause now to take questions. You may begin your queue. [nemo999] In some here now Bush wins and some Gore, but really each win in some, correct? But how do we here choose which one to put most focus on? [Michael_Entity] “You” will be in the parallel “you” choose, no matter what. There is no confusion on that level. In the reality where Bush wins, you are there for reasons of interest that may or may not be conscious to you on an Individual Level. There is a “you” in some variations of each candidate’s winning. Though it will not be admitted by some, we see many Personalities are “bored.” This has created a great interest in the ‘Bush reality’ as it is wrought with dramatic change and conflict. Many Older Souls are interested in that reality since they will generally be unaffected. It is always a task of the Older Soul to see the world with eyes of acceptance and love, so choosing a more challenging reality can suit that task appropriately. [nemo999] Do we put more focus on one than another and can we do that? [Michael_Entity] In answer to your question, yes, the “you” that is “here” on some level has a vested interest in the probabilities within the Bush Parallel, so your “focus” is there. If you were to focus on changing the momentum from a ‘Bush Reality’ to a ‘Gore Reality’, you can, but it will not happen magically, it would happen “naturally.” An assassination, impeachment, death, etc., would occur. Of course, your options within that reality may become even more limited then, as Gore would not take office in this case, only a more interesting fill-in would step up. Understand, if you will, that when Global Shifts occur, they are based on the momentum of the previous year’s Collective Decisions and Choices. All the Decisions and Choices have been made, for the most part, and the Global Shift will reflect that path/past. Though it CAN change in an instant, it is more complicated to change a Global Consciousness. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. Do I have any parallels where I’m a writer and if so, can you describe how I might access those parallels to bring that reality into this one? [Michael_Entity] If a Personality can imagine it, there is a reality for it. This may need to be created or it may have already been created. In your case, you have only a few that followed that path. If you still have a longing for a creation of a certain Reality, it usually means it has not been created to a level of satisfaction yet in any Parallel. In your case, then, it would simply be a matter of making your daily Decisions reflect your wishes. [Barb] I don’t long to create a parallel – I long to have it created in this reality. Am I understanding this as you meant it? [Michael_Entity] “This” reality will be its own Parallel at any given moment, so that is what we meant. To access another reality, you simply use your imagination. Imagination is more often than not distrusted as “making it up,” but there is no way around that. You are conditioned to think the Imagination is simply a creative visual, but when used specifically for some purposes, it is a viewing device. If you want to draw from another Parallel, imagine what that reality must be like and observe yourself in that context. “Watch” yourself as you live. Observe the smaller things, such as clothing, hairstyle, habits, and interests. From there, choose one or two of those simple things to mimic in “this” reality. If you find you always put your keys in a specific place in your home in the “other” parallel, begin doing that “here.” That one shift can begin to draw a line between the realities that will alter your Personality to a similar place in mind as the Personality where you are doing/having what you seek. You are not literally drawing from that Parallel, but only creating similarities that are on the similar level of Decisions in the other reality and this can then begin to move you into a similar place. We have seen surprisingly drastic impacts from this method. Your daily, minute habits shape “who” you are in more ways than is generally noticed. [Dewliet] If a personality on one parallel predeceases those on other parallels, does that personality proceed to the astral, or must it wait for the others to “catch up?” Is there the possibility for communication between the deceased and living personalities? [Michael_Entity] If a Personality deceases in its Parallel, it stays contained in its Parallel and will join its Entity in that Parallel. Parallels exist up to and through the Causal. There is possibility for communication, yes, we have seen this. It is not common, but it occurs. [Cathy] Regarding the timing of the shifts… Individual happening March-May, Community/family July/Aug and Global happening Nov/Jan. Why those times, or that time frame? [Michael_Entity] This has not always been the case, but with the advent of the Gregorian Calendar, these time frames are generally-accepted “seasonal” changes on the earth in all locations. This relates, as well, to the passage of exploration through the “year’s” Overleaves. When exploring the Goal, the Individual occurs. When exploring the Mode, the Community Shifts. When exploring the Attitudes and CFs, the World shifts. [Barry] Can our parallel selves have a different set of overleaves than we in this reality? [Michael_Entity] No. There may be variations on how they are used, and the variables may change, as in Centering and CF, but otherwise, no. We are speaking of the Parallels created from within one lifetime. Parallels started independently from their own timelines may be different Soul Ages, Overleaves, etc., altogether. They are far less accessible though. For instance, in 1980-1983 we believe, after a global nuclear devastation, many of “you” in those parallels who chose to be part of that will not progress in Soul Age for many thousands of years. That is due to the need to allow those directly involved in the devastation to rehabilitate the planet enough for bodies to be viable again. [MaryBV] Are there certain places that are more prone to reality shifts then others? For instance, we had a house in Indiana where odd things happened: a step down separating a large bedroom was there when we moved in then disappeared shortly after, and other things along these lines happened. Was it the house or were the 60′s more active with shifts? [Michael_Entity] This type of phenomena is only a temporal anomaly, not a geographical anomaly. Individual and Community Shifts were at a very high level within that decade. These then lead to Global Shifts of varying degrees. The “60′s” had the most impact Globally, followed by the “80′s”, in your time. The 00′s will be another such time. [KellyGirl] I am noticing great emotional disorientation as a reality I split off from in April/May is returning. How can I begin making decisions that result in the best possible current parallel, and how can I begin to ascertain what that will look like?? [Michael_Entity] It is not “returning,” it never “left” in this case. This is an example of the impact of simple, every day Decisions. That Reality might have “left” if your Decisions continued to support that path, but your Decisions are what are “returning” to a similar path. We believe your greatest tool in this situation, in determining whether the event is what you want to experience, is to practice ACTIVE Decision-making, instead of Passive Adaptation. From where you are currently, you can use your imagination to choose three paths ahead to ascertain. Use your imagination to determine at least 3 possibilities based on what you know at this point. By “looking ahead,” trust that you are literally seeing what lies ahead as probabilities. It is not a coincidence that you can imagine the future, it is your strength. “Follow” each variation long enough in the visualization to “see” where it leads you. That is the key in this, to allow the visuals to “come to you.” It may take a few moments, but they will come. Let them lead you. Make note of any thoughts as a result of observing the probabilities and at least once in the visual, get a good look at your face. “See” if you are happy. Whichever Parallel appears and feels the most fulfilling, then be concerned with only one thing: Your next step. To follow through with what you deem your next step may go against “you” in the moment, but remember that “you” dialogued with a future version of “you” and it is up to you to get you there, if you choose. This should be something enough for you to consider, although we could expand on this indefinitely. [Clavis] Hello Michael. Is it possible to physically enter a parallel universe? To disappear from this parallel and enter another parallel, even meet our parallel selves physically? [Michael_Entity] No. It is possible to do this within the same timeline (Future meets Past and vice versa), but we have not seen this occur inter-dimensionally. Some of your futures contain the ability to physically VIEW Parallels, but beyond that are obvious limitations. [MoonSinger] If I make a major choice in November, wouldn’t my individual shift occur at that time, or does it wait until March-May? I thought individual shifts could happen at any time. [Michael_Entity] When we spoke of the general time frames, we spoke of this in terms of larger quantities occurring simultaneously. In the same way that many choose to do their “spring cleaning” at that time, so do many choose to do their Individual Shifts. Otherwise, you are correct. Individual Shifts occur continually with no schedule. We remind you that that Older Souls are far less frightened of creating variations on the life, but the majority is. For many, it “feels safer” to make a major shift when, at least on an Essence Level, there is an indication that others are, too. [Leela2] Forgive me if this is a bit off the subject, but could the 1980 nuclear devastation parallel be elaborated on? For some reason that hit me hard. [Michael_Entity] Many fragments had been curious about the impact of Nuclear Devastation for quite some time. The excitement of that was irresistible to many, even on an Essence Level. Without intervention, what might be termed “trigger-happy baby souls,” did “push the button.” This was accidental, of course, as a threat from the Middle East threw many in the USA into a panic. Russia and the US created most of the devastation. Those who survived (and many did survive, surprisingly) shipped themselves to various islands around South America and Africa. Electronic communication between a few islands has only recently been accomplished. We could elaborate indefinitely on this as well, but we will continue with anyone left in the queue for purposes of “time.” [Barry] I guess we learn from our choices and experiences from both past lives and from parallel lives. I take it that the lessons from one are not any more valid or important than from the other? [Michael_Entity] You are correct. All “lessons” are subjective. There is only the individual who determines its validity. Essence sees nothing as valueless. We will conclude here. Good night.
  2. I watched this video just now and I thought it was very topical in the spirit of TLE activism. YouTuber Mexie speaks about the need to use imagination and inspiration in order to create a fairer and more sustainable world.
  3. This session was recovered from the old Yahoo group. May 18, 2000 CHAT TRANSCRIPT: 051800 OPEN FLOOR Note: Otterly = Troy Tolley Transcribed by MARYBV and Moderated by Sandra Dent NOTE from Troy: A section of this transcript was edited out. It was on the 7 female archetypes. Since the piece was noted by Michael to be incomplete and inaccurate, I'd like to work with them further before publishing this. Thank you for your patience. MEntity: We are here now. One moment. Hello to all of you. We realize we have another "open floor" night, so you may begin your questions as you please. <Silkee_99> I was hearing a voice, then repeating or translating to another person... when I woke up it seemed like I had been channeling. Was I dreaming that I was channeling, or what? I mean, was it just a dream, or just expressing an ego/desire, or is something telling me to channel. MEntity: It appears you have 3 students of your own that are Astral. Young fragments that have grown to "trust" you. While you are physical, you can act as a teacher for your "friends" while they themselves are Astral, between lives. Teaching and guidance are not one way. What you experienced as "translation" was an "uploading" if you will, of information from your own Instinctive Center and conveyed to these Students. They are seeking birth, a priest, and two warriors, it seems. As part of their reintroduction to the Physical, they sought you for some insights. This does not preclude your ability to "channel" in the classic sense, but this is our perception of the "dream." <Barb> The numbers on the clock - 11:11 have become very significant to me but I don't know why - is it just for me or is this some kind of cosmic event? MEntity: Many symbols that appear to be repetitive tend to give sentience a sense that they are "meaningful." The meaning of11:11 has taken on significance because of a larger portion of people placing significance on it, but before digital clocks, it was a simple reference for time. If you find it "strikes" something within you, it may be of importance to you to seek the larger context that created significance around this number. <Barb> But I don't understand what that significance is. MEntity: That is part of the fun. We do believe you may find significance in the teachings of a Mature Priest, a female. She has written and created a context for this number, giving some valid significance to it. We believe her "name" is Solara. Though we do not discount the validity of the created context for this number, it is personal and not a Global or universal truth. <Julie> Michael, I assume that most fragments carry over talents/aptitudes from previous lives. I am interested in your comments as to what mine might be, and how they can be encouraged in all of us. MEntity: Your assumption is not entirely valid. Though some lives will retain characteristics of another life, it is not always the case. Lives appear to have clusters, themes, and they are not necessarily sequential. In addition to this, as your life unfolds, certain "parts" of it will resonate to various lives, even finding a different life resonating for your "relationships" versus "work," etc. We do not have a forum that allows clear enough connection for us to determine yours specifically at this moment. Past life "aptitudes and talents" is not something that need "encouragement." They unfold "naturally," with or without your conscious interactions. When seeking to implement a talent or aptitude that IS NOT "naturally" relevant, there are techniques to draw those in from other lives, yes. <Julie> Could Michael suggest helpful ways we might determine which lives are resonating for us in different aspects of the current life? MEntity: The most significant techniques for determining resonance from another life is to simply ask yourself. Choose a context in your life you seem to feel might have resonance with the past, and ask. Within moments, you may receive images and various indications. Allow these to flow. Regardless of your knowledge of history or geography, allow the basic pictures and elements to be pulled in. This may seem to be the "imagination" when you do this. This would be valid, but what has come to be dismissed as "just the imagination" is a actually a human's highest frequency owned. It allows transcendence of the physical, WHILE physical. All Sentience has this portal. To go into elaboration would require the entire time allotted for this exchange, but this might be a start. To summarize: Create a list of obvious categories, Work, Recreation, Intimacy, Family, etc. Include in this a context of an OVERALL theme applying now. Take a moment while showering, going to the bathroom, bathing, meditating, anything that allows the Instinctive to release its normal 'control' and ask. One Category at a time. One a week. Then take the basic pictures, time frames, etc., and search the Internet if you want more striking impact and references for validation. <Julie> Are you saying, then, that "nothing" is truly "just the imagination?" That all thought creates "something?" MEntity: In answer to your question, anything you Imagine IS Imagination, but it is a most important tool. The significance of which has only been seen in some instances in your history. There is a difference between Imagination and Fantasy, and your own sense of self can begin to sense the difference. <Barry> It has been the subject of many theories and of philosophers. Do you perceive a "force" or energy that permeates everything on the physical plane and perhaps nonphysical planes? Some call the force LOVE, some call it SPIRIT. Is it actually all part of the Tao? MEntity: Yes, we would call it TAO. There is nothing in your known world, imagination, perception, sense, tangibility, etc., that does not spring from TAO and WITHIN it. Each plane is couched within the one "above" it. Each Plane is an extension of the same. Within "your own" plane you can see a parallel and example of this. Breaking down the creation of an event: it may begin as a THOUGHT, then a FEELING, then ACTION, all the while being "tangible" and "real" to the CREATOR. Determining the related "force" within each of these stages can bring great insight. The Physical Plane can be said to be the ACTION level or Moving Center of the Tao. ALL Centers have ALL other Centers as part of itself. <Barry> So we should attempt to determine the related "force" that makes each stage... what? Possible? That is, the "force" at work behind THOUGHT, etc.? MEntity: You call it "force" because you are Physical. There is a need for new terms before recognition of this you seek can be "found." All of the answers to the Universe are held within any Plane, but each plane's 'vocabulary' extends and the mysteries are more and more comprehended. Illness and disease hold the greatest clues within the Physical Plane as to the nature of manifestation and consistency within each other "plane," ironically. The Warrior/Priest, Louise L. Hayes, has some significant breakthroughs in this "force" you seek. <Barry> So is there a type of illness or disease on planes other than the physical? MEntity: Yes, there are. Fear remains as a potential through the Causal, but in ways in which you have no reference. <Barry> What about tracing an ACTION backwards to root FEELING and THOUGHT? Helpful or not? MEntity: Yes, quite helpful. More importantly, choose an EVENT to trace "backwards." Such as your "move" recently. Choose an EVENT, then seek what ACTIONS manifested it, what FEELINGS supported it, and what THOUGHTS generated it. <Leela> The writer Philip K. Dick had a very powerful mystical experience that he called VALIS. I was reminded of it today, and I am curious as to what he was experiencing. I hope that this question is meaningful to people in some way. He found himself living in a parallel life in Rome, and various other things happened as well. He wrote about this all his life. This question may or may not be relevant to anyone. MEntity: Philip K. Dick (an Artisan/Scholar from Cadre 1/Entity 3) appears to have been writing a valid account. There does not appear to be a discrepancy here. This is material capable of catapulting many an imagination into the possibilities inherent. Though there are personal embellishments in terms of interpretation, it seems to be "honest." <Hector22> Are there any physical attributes, such as hair length e.g., that affect the intensity or quality of input & output of centering? MEntity: If you believe so. Though that would be a personal truth. Hair length, style, any physical appearance can diminish or enhance any input/output as a result of personal self-image acceptance or rejection. Sometimes a shift in personal appearance can preoccupy the Instinctive and distract from "other" input/output as it adjusts. <MaryBV> Michael, could you tell us a bit more about the people who where the "first wave" of ensouled beings on this planet (the Atlanteans). What were they like and about how much time did we, the second wave, overlap incarnate together? Is Michael a part of this first wave? MEntity: The first ensouled species on this planet were not human. They were silicon-based and you would have recognized them more as molten lava-like creatures. Agate pieces found today are literally their "bones." As far as a "first wave" and "second wave," we are unfamiliar with this concept, though a few of our channels may have their own theories. We do not exclude Otterly in this. Many of you were participants in Atlantis. The "first wave" and "second wave" may be a differentiation between the average Soul Age at the times. A parallel race, what has come to be known as "Lemurians," may also be what is referred to. As far as we know, we are of the same "wave" as you. <JJTan> Can Michael say anything about which civilization (humans or aliens) built the Great Pyramid and what was its original purpose? MEntity: This is a question that requires a bit of a stretch in imagination. We can elaborate on this more at another "time." What you see as the Pyramids are "from your future." There are a few anomalies that allow this kind of looping of time to exist and though they certainly ARE from your "past" it was not until what could be called "your future" did the concept for them occur. Many mysteries that surround the building of the Pyramids are only "mysteries" because their "reasons" for existence have literally not come to pass. To integrate within the belief structures of that era, certain aspects of each "time" were utilized. <Barry> Are you saying that in "our future" we somehow cause the pyramids to be built in "the past"? Or were/are they sent there? MEntity: Specifically, in answer to your question, your race helps build them alongside an 'alien race,' the second alien race which contacts you. Based on events that, to you, occur in your future, a need for these constructs is then created. The pyramids have been "destroyed" in some timelines, wherein the races "go back" as a means to RE-construct them. We do not "know" if this will occur "again," but this is their "history." The Pyramids have many histories. Their purpose is to act as a means to stabilize forms of transportation through time planes. We realize the science fiction aspect of this. It is not required that you accept this version of the Pyramidal reasons for being. <Julie> So then, physical plane "time travel" is/will be a reality? MEntity: It "already" is. Nearly 2/3s of your "UFO" sightings are your future, we would say. Which may or may not include actual "aliens." <Barb> Can we accomplish this as individuals - time travel? MEntity: Time travel is available to all of you instantly through Imagination. It is only within the confines of dismissal that the truth of this is missed. We will close now. Goodnight.
  4. July 15, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Parallels and Processes [Michael_Entity] We are here. We will begin in one moment. What we will do is discuss the Parallel Shift coming up and respond to any questions you may have about it. Then move into another area if time permits. We remind you that the window appears to begin on a larger scale starting the 17th, with the actual shift window for most being on the 19th, and continuing through the 29th. The reason for the extended time window is due to the nature of the Community Shift. Some within your circle may begin or end their own version of the shift at a different point than yourself. A solidifying factor for this shift can be seen astrologically. We do not practice astrology, but a quick glance at some events at the end of the month and the beginning of the next should provide some insights from another angle. The process of passing through the parallel shift is in three stages; a Triad: Negative/Positive/Neutral. Though some may reverse the Negative and Positive phase, the process always moves to Assimilation/Neutral as a conclusive factor. It is rare to begin in the Positive. What we will describe can be experienced on all three levels of shifts, Individual, Community, and Global Levels, so this can be applied at other times than this shift currently unfolding. The window indicated by us through our channels is always the general window of the “positive” phase. It is most easily identifiable and marked, while the first and last thirds of the Triad are less defined by time. In the Negative phase (Phase One), Personality begins going through what some may consider a drop in energy, a sleep-like phase, sometimes depression or simple disorientation. This is what may easily be considered sedation of the Personality. This is caused by a more “horizontal” flow of energy and a time in which Personality must sustain itself on a basic instinctual level. In most cases there is a sense of disconnection from Essence, a sense of “just getting through the day”, and/or the dream state takes on a vivid life while the waking state seems gray or less-than. This is all due to the evaluation process occurring by Essence. Essence is “looking in” on all parallels, evaluating where energy has been utilized by all aspects of itself to date, in all of its manifestations, measuring this against several factors. During this first phase many “realities” are being generated in a potential state. Personality is in a state of sedation, so to speak, since this takes much energy that is usually available on a daily basis for creativity by the Personality, and redirecting it in a very specific manner. The very end of the Negative period is marked by a swift uplift in energy, a shift of sorts internally, marking the end of the exploration by Essence and an inclusion of Personality in the process. This is usually where Personality now suddenly feels inspired, senses potential on a vague but motivating level. This is where Personality will then make final decisions in what directions to go through the shift, selecting from the potentials generated by Essence. Shortly after this, the Positive phase begins (Phase Two). The window for the actual shift in parallels occurs during this phase. This phase is interpreted/experienced differently by different Roles and is further affected my Attitudes and Centering. In general, the more fluid Roles (Priests, Sages, and Artisans) can feel giddy and inspired, confused, but uplifted and energetic. The more solid Roles (Scholars, Kings, Warriors, and Servers) can feel slightly agitated, introverted, “serious” and feel a need to focus. The more solid Roles will usually find “projects” that focus the energy for this period of time or find sexual arousal distracting. This is their way of “staying in the body” during the shift. The shift tends to find an individual feeling scattered and this is not particularly comfortable for a solid role. This is all highly general, but accurate for the most part. Once the shift is finalized (and an astrological event usually parallels this), depending on the individual or community or planet (relative to the type of shift) the fragments settle into their new vein of experiences. This third phase can take as long as individually required, though it is usually within 60 days from the shift. During this phase you begin to experience that which is “next on your agenda” as determined by Personality and Essence. We will stop here and ask for your responses, validations, etc. Any questions. [Jn] Are these shifts “cosmic” events or determined by Essence or groups of Essence (community)? [Michael_Entity] They are determined by Essences, individually, and/or collectively. For instance, the Cetaceans have their own parallel shifts. The highest level, the global level, is more likely to include all of sentience on that planet. [Jn] So do the shifts happen mostly during Internal Monad periods? Like the 4th IM? [Michael_Entity] No, shifts happen all the time. More individual shifts may occur during personal revelations, but that is individually determined. Each year, there are an average of 4 Individual Shifts, 2 Community Shifts, and one Global Shift. They are all built upon by “decisions” that lead to the major “choices”. [aa] Can personality’s desires and wishes influence essence choices regarding a shift? [Michael_Entity] Personality is entirely influential. In fact, parallel realities would not be a necessity if not for the dynamics of a Personality. This is the Tao’s way, and Essence's way, to accommodate the wishes, creativity, and even rejections of Essence from the Personality. Just previous to a shift, however, a momentum has already begun long before by your Personality’s day-to-day reactions to experiences, your decisions, your thoughts, feelings,… all this is fed to Essence as factors for consideration. Once the Negative phase has begun (Phase One), most of what is considered for your “future” parallels is already “collected”. As you begin as an older soul to recognize these shifts, processing them more consciously, there may be a tendency of the Personality to want to “be a part” of the shift by trying to “influence” it through focusing at that time, etc. It is actually more empowering and influential a perception to consider your daily reactions, responses and decisions are what “matter” in terms of creating your future, not the window for the shift. We know of some Personalities being anxiety riddled at the nexus points, “hoping” they pick the “right” parallel. This is completely invalid. Once the shifts begin, Personality is in a space where surrender is the most empowering strength. There are some things the Personality was not designed to do. Trusting Essence is the primary challenge for the Personality during a parallel shift. [Jn] For Global shifts, all sentience on our planet experienced the shifts, but what about alien visitors here? Do they participate? I am curious to know if our shifts (parallel universes) have effects on other planets (or vice versa). [Michael_Entity] There are actually 7 levels of shifts that occur or are possible in the Universe. We remain dealing with only these basic 3 shifts until more off-planet concerns are a factor. We will discuss the fourth level at the end of this year. In answer to your question: If there would be an alien visitor, it would participate in the shift relative to this planet as well, yes. Your local shifts for your planet affect other planets only to the extent that off-planet exploration is utilized. For now, other civilizations off-planet would have more influences on your planet, than the reverse. Next question… [La] So far, most of what you’ve told us would apply to the Individual Shift, but I’m unclear as to the dynamics of a Community Shift? [Michael_Entity] The primary difference is that MORE of you are shifting together in one context. It still occurs individually, without exception, but there is a factor of agreement in a larger circle. This means that a group of fragments have agreed on a future that would like to be experienced in terms of interaction with each other after evaluating Agreements, Karma, contacts, Sequences, Vectors, etc. When done on the Individual Level, after a shift you may view many things differently, feel different motivations, all of which seem detached from the perceptions of those around you. You will notice that in a Community Shift or Global Shift, more media is involved, more gatherings, more impact FROM others or ON others around you. Each Community shift usually has a theme. This shift is specifically about manifesting True Soul age on a Psychological Level. The mundane effects of this are in the loss of people or the gain of people in a significant way in your personal support circle. This is why we spoke earlier of the window being a longer time frame; to accommodate the actual Individual shifts involved. If there are no more questions about the shift, we will take a question from each of you. Depending on its nature, we will respond to it tonight. [aa] I had a dream where images were flashing in too fast to recognize. Was this some sort of “processing”? About twenty images in a sequence of flashing. [Michael_Entity] We would think so. This is not unusual. The Dream State becomes a meeting ground for Essence and Personality for some considerations of potential futures. This is usually the “uploading” of certain experiences that have not been “updated” for Essence evaluation. You may experience them as if they are being fed to “you”, but this is natural since they are moving to a conscious level from your Centers where they were stored previously. It may be assumed that Essence is involved in all activities and experiences and “knows all” while you are incarnated, but this is just not the case. Essence, of course, is involved on all levels, but in many cases “allows” the Personality its own terms for much of its life. The Personality will report or check in or make contact when wanted or needed. This contact can easily be sustained so that Essence is purely manifest, but we rarely see a Personality interested in this except in extreme trauma. [Dd] What does the maxim: You create your reality NOT entail? [Michael_Entity] Though this is a rather “large” question, we can assure you that most mistake this as the Personality’s potential, when it is not. The Personality is highly limited in its “creation” of reality. Personality, though, is the highest consideration by Essence in terms of what DECISIONS Personality has made for a length of time. Essence takes these factors into consideration as the Essence creates reality. The Personality is a sensory unit for the Physical Plane, and though it has the definite potential and goal for pure manifestation of Essence, allowing Personality a co-creative stance, it will always be Essence that creates the actual reality. This is why we encourage Essence Contact. The more consciously involved “you” are (as Personality) with Essence, the more influence on Physical Plane manifestations and abundance. A missing link in many endeavors for “creating your reality” is in the lack of actually “asking” for what you want directly to Essence. It is most often “left to the Universe” or “released” to a vague source or “God” for its manifestation. The most irresponsible and indifferent mantra we have seen used by Personality in reality is, “It will happen if it is supposed to happen”, or similar. We say “irresponsible” in its true sense, not in the judgmental manner this word usually entails. Since Essence (and certainly the Tao) does not “think” in terms of “supposed to” this lends little direction to an event and what results is usually another opportunity for Chief Feature manifestation. [Dd] So has the Seth material been largely misinterpreted much like the words of Christ were? [Michael_Entity] There is no such thing as misinterpretation. Nothing can be misrepresented or misinterpreted; only individually perceived. It is an individual determination and based on relativity. What is seen as “misinterpretation”, at least in this context, is more a frustrating need for validation of that individual perception. This has been the contributing factor behind most religious conflict, in fact, most conflict. [Dd] We all yearn for the truth. [Michael_Entity] It has never been the “words” themselves that contribute to the situation, but rather the need for validation externally of the words as seen individually. We are being truthful when we say that all is true on some level. Reminding yourself of the three levels of Truth (Individual, World, and Universal) can alleviate many distractions with conflict. All of the material from Seth is valid and applicable. If it is to be used for personal exploration of power and conflict, then it is still serving the students. We would suggest looking beyond the surface to what the personal challenge is. We do not see it involving philosophy, but simple self-karma. We will take another question, then conclude. [By] First, as I understand it, essence can split off and create alternate or parallel realities so it can experience different “what if” scenarios – right? [Michael_Entity] This is a valid angle, yes. [By] Then can through some form, say meditation, can I contact essence with intense desire that it try something else and then when it is finished, it will merge the split off fragment back and at some level I will benefit from the learning of the fragment? [Michael_Entity] You already do this; it is inherent in the process of a life. It does not require meditation. Frustrations, reactions, responses, decisions, emotions, thoughts, ideas, etc. all contribute to the diverging/branching of parallels. The merging is based on a quantity of similarities in certain parallels and the lack of need for individual realities. “Benefit” is gained on many levels. A drive to have children might spawn a reality where that is the choice, lessening the drive in “this” reality so as to focus on other agenda. Benefit can also be more consciously gained through simple visualization and if you prefer, meditation. Visualize what “you” are like in a reality that has done or is doing or having, etc. what it is you are seeking. We have spoken on this many times, stating that your imagination is all that is needed for this exercise. Though we realize it is highly mistrusted, the imagination is the highest frequency owned by a body and extremely empowering. In your visualization, choose a simple habit, style change, or activity that “you” do “there” that you do not do “here”. In the replication of this in your reality, you will create a link, or bleedthrough, helping to direct a manifestation. [By] So that the direction to try a different existence comes from me and not from essence as such? I have trouble distinguishing between “me” and “essence”… [Michael_Entity] We have said before, but will here say again, that the dynamics of Parallels is designed to accommodate both the Essence’s AND Personality’s development of a life. The “direction to try a different existence” comes from both Essence and Personality, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in complete discord with each other. Essence will never interfere with the ideas of a Personality however removed they are from the “original plan”. There is plenty of “room” for “all of you” Another reason for parallels is that Essence CANNOT experience all of the Physical Plane while the Personality IS of the Physical Plane, therefore, Personality has an “edge” on what is important, needed, or wanted. Personality gives the Essence a source of “feedback” from the Physical Plane so as to make more and more complex, elaborate and meaningful choices as Soul Age progresses. [By] I guess “I” am a creation of essence so if “I” wish essence to try a different scenario, then it is the same as essence doing it. Or am I getting confused here? [Michael_Entity] There is really no need to distinguish between “you” as personality and essence since as older souls you are seeking alignment more and more. [By] ok, I think the subject of who can initiate the creation of parallel realities is a little clearer for me now, thank you. [Michael_Entity] If there is confusion in your life, it is best to assume yourself as Personality. This will allow a clearer path of communication to Essence when important. A sense of knowing and trust for the next moment or experience being felt may be considered being in Essence. Either way, there is the same amount of impact available on reality. It is merely within the acceptance or resistance of this that a challenge can occur. We will conclude here.
  5. 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.
  6. Michael Speaks -- "Imagination, and What is it for?" December 11, 2011 Troy Tolley, Channel Start: 12:57 PM 12/11/2011 MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We have always enjoyed that our students are rather "rowdy." It is a good match with us, despite our seemingly stolid approach to sharing our teaching. We understand the subject to be IMAGINATION, and What It Is For. We will share what we can on this, and aim for it to be useful in understanding this often-misunderstood process. Though we have shared some in the past about Imagination, we have not shared enough with which to build upon in this exchange, so we will speak to this subject anew. Imagination is a powerful tool of Sentience that exists in every known scenario while in a body. There are no circumstances of great pleasure or great suffering that does not allow for Imagination. Imagination exists as a kind of frequency into which all Sentience can tune, if you will, but also generate. Imagination exists as a result of Sentience, and Sentience exists as a result of Imagination. Everything exists as a result of Imagination. And Imagination exists as a result of everything. In short, Imagination IS Tao. If any one of you wondered what Tao "is like," it is that part of you that Imagines. If you wondered what your "spark" was like at the core of your Essence, it is Imagination. And by extension, your Imagination is Essence, as well. And by further extension, your Imagination is YOU. We share this rather amorphous and aphorismic introduction because it is valid that Imagination permeates everything, and emits from everything, in ways that literally help to perpetuate the universe. This is one of the reasons many teachings teach that the world is "illusion." Therefore, in terms of Imagination then, every existing thing is "illusion." Therefore, it is silly to presume that because it is Imagination that it must therefore be ignored, transcended, avoided, denied, etc., because one does so, one only trades one "illusion" for another. Trading one illusion for another that is "better" is like keeping chlorine on one side of the pool. The only way that life gets "better," particularly while in the Physical Plane, is through participation. All other paths are stalling, which are valid, but stalled. "Participation" means tending to that which was Imagined, or taking responsibility. Imagination is used to FORM, INTERPRET, EXPERIENCE, and COMPREHEND, which are Imagination in Motion, Intellect, Emotion, and Assimilation, respectively. In the same way that Imagination is TAO, it is also CHOICE. Therefore, one could say that Imagination is used for Forming Choice, Interpreting Choice, Experiencing Choice, or Comprehending Choice, while Choice, itself, has its influence on each, i.e., you can Choose how to Form a Choice. Imagination is generated from three natural resources within your existence: The Past, Present, and Future. "The Now" is the whole that is the sum of the parts - Past, Present, and Future, and "the Now" is different from the Present (for this discussion, at least). The use of Memory (the past) to form, interpret, experience, or comprehend the Past, Present, or Future is REPRODUCTIVE imagination. Reproductive Imagination is Sensory-based, and usually relative and relevant to the Body, or Moving Center. It could be said, then, that Reproductive Imagination arises from, and/or influences Action, Form, Memory, and the Goal. Reproductive Imagination ranges in use from memory to crafts to recognition to procreation to routine and to the nurturing of the Body. A reason Goals are associated with Reproductive Imagination is because scenarios must be formed, interpreted, and experienced over and over again for a Goal to be pursued. The use of The Present to Form, Interpret, Experience, or Comprehend the Past, Present, or Future is CREATIVE Imagination. Creative Imagination arises from, and/or influences Inspiration (emotion), Experience, Perception, and the Mode. Creative Imagination ranges in use from ideas, to art, to problem solving, possibilities, and healing. A reason Modes are associated with Creative Imagination is because Inspiration is always formed, interpreted, and experienced through Relationships, within and without. The use of the Future to Form, Interpret, Experience, or Comprehend to Past, Present, or Future is INVOLUNTARY Imagination. Involuntary Imagination arises from, and/or influences Expression (intellect), Interpretation, Beliefs (philosophies), and the Attitude. Involuntary Creativity ranges in use across fear, defense, reaction, illness, pathologies, depression, dreams, anticipation, anxiousness. A reason Attitudes are associated with Involuntary Imagination is because one's Expression is naturally formed, interpreted, and experienced because of one's Philosophies (beliefs), within and without. Though these are nicely organized in ways that align with the Axes, they are not static associations in such a way that one could relate a Role to one of these forms of Imagination. In other words, all Sages and Artisans are not locked to, or rooted in the Involuntary Imagination. That being said, there is truth to the tendency for use of certain types of Imagination, which can be approximated not only by the Role, but by the dominance of an Axis in one's Overleaves. The Overleaves, and the use of them over many lifetimes, expands every fragment's capacity for use of all forms of Imagination, though all forms were there from "the beginning," as it is a frequency that is stored or accessed through the Instinctive Center. This frequency is one's indirect line to the Akashic Plane, as it is the frequency that is used to update/upload to your Essence, through your Essence, and to its own Causal Body for the updating of records. Each of these can be positive or negative in their uses to the individual. And each will inherently trigger and overlap the others. This information acts as a kind of map for how to understand from what angle you are drawing your Imagination, and what parts of you it may be generating from, or influencing, so that you give rise to ever greater spectrum of choices for how, who, where, and why you are. You DO "create" your "reality" in the most fundamental and personal sense, even if not all of "reality" is your personal creation. Your Imagination uses your memory, perceptions, and beliefs. And, your memory, perceptions, and beliefs use Imagination to form, interpret, experience, and comprehend your Reality. ***FLOOR IS NOW OPEN FOR QUESTIONS*** Maureen: If a person wishes to have a different outcome in “whatever” – how might they use their Imagination to make this happen MEntity: One would first want to assess to what degree one has control over the outcome of that "whatever" in terms of Form, Interpretation, Experience, or Comprehension, and this would most likely come from the Creative Imagination. If one cannot control an actual outcome (form), one may still have the capacity for controlling the interpretation of that outcome to best suit his needs or wants; or he may be able to control his experience so that disappointment can be minimized, or joy can be generated; or control his comprehension so that sense can be made of the results. We will say, however, that "wishing" for a different outcome would have far less effect than actual participation in the process. Maureen: perhaps I am thinking of the use of Visualization as it relates to Imagination MEntity: Understanding from where that "wishing" is generated can also help. Is it a result of Reproductive Imagination? Is he trying to recreate? Is it a result of Creative Imagination? Is he trying to visualize and hold an intention? Is it a result of Involuntary Imagination, generated from fear and defense against the alternative outcomes? Knowing from where it comes can sometimes help to point to other resources. For instance, if it is Creative, then the outcome may require other people to help, and Relationships can be explored for even more Imagination. For more Inspiration, etc. As Emotions are also how one experiences Time, Creative Imagination may also point to the fact that it is a matter of patience, as well. carolyn: Is the frequency stored/accessed through instinctive centre, the same as the essence frequency, and does this frequency work through seven levels, of the three types of imagination. MEntity: The Frequency that we offer as insight into your Essence is Essence's particular "vibration point" from within Sentience as it is relative to your Sentience. In other words: all of Sentience is its own spectrum from 1 - 100. Human Sentience may be at 30 in that spectrum, for example. That point of 30 within the full spectrum of 100 is then delineated into its own spectrum from 1 - 100. Imagination then could be said to be the equivalent of all Sentience, and Humans are one point in that spectrum of Imagination. Your Frequency describes your Essence's speed at which Imagination is accessed or generated. To answer your question: yes, the Frequency that is your Sentience, and the specific Frequency with which your Essence participates within that, are stored/accessed in the Instinctive Center. While we have no delineated process of 7 Levels for how Frequency uses Imagination, our information on the 7 Methods of Choice can shed light on that process, indirectly. Kathryn41: How much impact are we able to effect on the physical plane reality as a result of 'imagination' as individuals, or is this a co-imagined reality and we are only really able to effect 'big' changes with a more collective agreement of that imagined reality MEntity: The level of impact one has on shared reality is the extent to which one actively participates in it. Your Physical reality, at least in terms of FORM, are results of Actions (Goals). Physical reality is dense, so working together in time and space is important, as results that land here can remain here for a very long time and space. The more removed one is from that process, the more confined the time and space, and the less influence on the greater, collective time and space. Your Emotional reality, at least in terms of Experience, are results of Perception (Mode). The more present and active one is in relationships, the more impact and influence there is. Kathryn41: So this is why young souls are so often able to effect big changes, because many at this soul level are very actively involved/participating in the shared 'reality'? MEntity: Your Intellectual reality, at least in terms of Interpretation, are results of Beliefs (Attitude). The more present and clear one is in his philosophies about life, the more influence and impact he tends to have on those for himself. That would be valid, Kathryn. All fragments exist within all of these "realities" (there are 9, all together), but tend to pick and choose, based on many factors, where the impact and influence will most likely be. Keep in mind, however, that "thoughts are things," so the work that one does on his Involuntary Imagination, the more it contributes to the capacity for soothing others from their own fears, prejudices, reactions, etc. Involuntary Imagination tends toward fear, reaction, and protection, and this is a good thing in situations where danger is actually present, but when it is simply a difference in philosophies, for instance, then fear, reaction, and protection are often exacerbating, contributing to a reality that is often unwanted. So one does have influence and impact to some degree across all of the realities and through all of the paths of Imagination. EVERYTHING counts, if you will. [Bobby] You've stated before that I used imaginative access to my own Instinctive Center when I briefly heard (phonetically) "Siffin". Is this indicative of the fact that I am Moving Centered and how I tend to use imagination? If this is too personal of a question then feel free to skip it. I can ask it in a different session. MEntity: That is a valid indication, as it could be said to be the Reproductive Imagination. We realize we have shared a collection of terms that may have to be organized in a way that our students can then make more sense of them, and begin to build a better understanding of this profound tool. But this is a start. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
  7. Michael Speaks Live Chat Sunday, November 13, 2011 Troy Tolley, Channel The 7 Planes of Existence MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will share with you on the requested topic: The 7 Planes of Existence. We know that most of you are familiar with the 7 Planes as they have been described in our teaching, and are familiar to many teachings, even if in slight variation and understanding. Those 7 Planes are: Physical, Astral, Causal, Akashic, Mental, Messianic, and Buddhic (or Buddhaic). Each Plane is a Plane of Existence, and is a definite medium for consciousness to explore, learn, and evolve. These Planes exist one within the other, and overlap to some extent, with the Physical Plane being "in the center" and the densest, and the Buddhic being the outermost existence that permeates all Planes within it. It is often easier to imagine this as spheres within spheres. All 7 of these Planes ARE Tao. It is often described as Tao encompassing these 7 Planes, and that would be fair to say, but technically, Tao IS those 7 Planes. The whole that is greater than the sum of the parts, if you will. As you will see from our sharing of details about these Planes and their design, there will be a micro and macrocosmic consistency. Keep in mind that when we use the term "consciousness," it is often inclusive of all forms of consciousness, and not specific to Sentience. In other words, consciousness exists in a multitude of forms in your Physical Plane and in other planes. Rocks have a form of consciousness that is just as valid as Sentience. There are many lines of evolution of consciousness, and not all of them are Sentient. The greatest difference between Sentient and non-sentient consciousness is in terms of the extent of fragmentation and "direction" that the consciousness is actively moving. Sentience tends to be the most individualized of consciousness (most fragmented), generating within that consciousness a profound desire for return to Tao, or Oneness. Therefore, Sentient Consciousness is "on its way back" to Tao, and most other forms of non-sentient consciousness do not require such passages; non-sentience can be "absorbed" immediately back into Tao, if you will, and does not necessarily evolve. Sentience evolves. In other words, Sentience is the furthest and farthest one can get from Tao in terms of fragmentation. The return "home," then, for Sentience, is a long journey by most standards of measurement. Passage through these Planes of Existence are passages of reunion and union. It could be said, then, that the 7 Planes are the 7 Levels of Tao, as Tao evolves in its own way precisely through the collection of experiences gained through these fragments. Once one has become a Fragment, regardless of the return to Tao and the profound oneness that this entails, that unit of consciousness is its own thing "forever." Drops of water in an ocean who leave no boundaries between themselves and ocean, or each other, but existing as an identifiable unit of consciousness now. This is how "Grand Cycles" can happen. A Grand Cycle is a single journey of separation from Tao, incarnation through a species, and the subsequent return through the 7 Planes. Though we would have a difficult time describing this in terms of physics, each Plane is merely a variation of vibration of energy that is consistent among all Planes. Because of its vibrational state, it is "separate" enough that it exists as its own state. This would be similar to how ice, water, and steam could exist as the same, but different. For simplicity's sake, we can say that all Planes are made of Matter (Energy), and each Plane is a variation on Matter. The combination of what might be akin to molecules and how they function with one another generates each Plane. And differentiates each Plane. The consistency among all Planes is based on a set of physics that is reflected in the Physical Plane in many ways. Though there are a few places from which we could start, we will use your Carbon-base as the model. We will return to this reference to Carbon in a moment. First, we will state that every Planet has its own Physical, Astral, and Causal Plane. Particularly if there is Sentience evolving on that planet. Those Planes are variations on a theme, and each is mapped similarly. For the most part, these Ordinal Planes are themed in Densities, Tangibilities, and Identities. That is an oversimplification, but it is accurate. The Physical Plane is these themes in terms of Actions. The Astral is these themes in terms of Emotions. The Causal is these themes in terms of Intellect. The Akashic Plane is not a Plane in which any consciousness resides, but is a memory bank. Rather than passing through this Plane, it is central to both the Causal and Mental Planes' use for evolution. It could be said to be the ordinal version of Tao. The Mental Plane expands to encompass what we will describe as a Galaxy. A Galaxy would be a collection of 49 Planets of Sentience in proximity. The Messianic Plane expands to encompass what we will describe as a Galaxy Group, or 49 Galaxies that house Sentience. The Buddhic Plane is relative to a Galaxy Cluster, or 49 Galaxy Groups. Tao, then, could be said to be the Cosmos, or the manifest Universe. From what we have learned, there are boundaries on our Universe, as there are other Universes. We use "Universe" here in the sense of organized Planes for Sentient development, and not whimsically referencing different parallels or emotional perceptions. This is literal. We know that each Universe must be a closed "space," if you will, as the patterns that are generated indicate interference patterns, indicating reflection. The patterns are far too consistent not to indicate this, as far as we can see. Returning to Carbon as the building block, not only are forms within the Physical Plane relevant to the building blocks of Carbon, but so are all forms of consciousness born of, or returning to Tao through, Carbon. Much of our own Teaching reflects this, as we use the dodecaphonic scale, which is a musical counterpart of Carbon, for most aspects of our teaching. Our systems of 12, 7, and 9 (which are still systems of 12) are related to this dodecaphonic/carbon scale/ratio, and while there is not an obvious element of 5 in our teaching, it is built in on many levels, which we can expound upon at another time. For now, we will reference the 5 Soul Ages before cycling off, and what we refer to as Clusters (of lives) that are in groups of 5. These numbers will be relevant for building upon. We can return to them in further explorations with us. For now, we will return to the details of the Planes. The 7 Levels of the Physical Plane are the 7 Soul Ages: 5 of which are done before cycling off, and two of which are completed by returning as a reunited entity, and as a representative of Tao. All fragments will move through those 7 Levels of the Physical Plane (7 Soul Ages). There are 7 Levels of the Astral Plane, as well. As every Plane bleeds through, so to speak, to each bordering Plane, the 1st Level of the Astral could be said to be the Level of Imagination. This is from where each fragment accesses Imagination. At its best use, it is what you are familiar with in terms of "imagination," but it is also where those who induce altered states through drugs can tend to go, as well as where troubled Personalities can often bleed into, and where suicides are processed, and from where hauntings are sustained. It is the Level from which "heaven" and "hell" are generated, and other such nonsense. The 2nd Level of the Astral is where most go between lives, and when dreaming. The 3rd Level is where one resides when cycled off. It is also the level in which one will complete any Karma that did not require Physical incarnation. The Mid-Astral or 4th Level is what is accessed between lives by fragments as a means for planning and studying and review. Even if one is on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Levels, this 4th is accessed in ever more refined ways for the evolution of the Essence, and creation of a life. It is also from which one's guides tend to reside, and where your partially-reunited entity resides. Even if your guide is not cycled off, if acting as a guide, it is functioning through the use of this Level. Or, at least, trying to. The 5th Level is one of Comprehension, and it is where your Entity members work through full disclosure. Everything that was never known, kept secret, private, personal, for any Personality is now brought forth as the entity prepares for reunion. This is a chaotic and quite emotional process. The 6th Level is the Healing, or the actual Reunion process. Though the more chaotic aspects of reunion have been processed, this can actually be even more painful. The 7th Level then is the full union of the Entity, in terms of its Emotional intimacy. The 5th, 6th, and 7th Levels are the only levels that are free from living counterparts, or incarnating fragments. The first three can be accessed fairly easily by Personalities from the Physical Plane. The Causal Plane also has 7 Levels, but these become more difficult to clarify in terms that are easy to convey, as the linear aspect begins to break down, even as it does not. The Lower, or Ordinal, Causal Plane could be said to be a process of refining our ideas and ideals. Now that we have united emotionally, we then build a new identity from that. Though "identity" is a crude term in the context of the Causal Plane, it is still valid. This is because, even as we speak as one, we are well aware of our parts, and our differentiation from other entities on our Plane. We still experience a passage of time and space, though in vastly different ways from what is familiar to the Physical Plane, but still a passage, nonetheless. Over the course of the first three Levels, entities take different lines of evolution that are in groups: some of which are Guides, some of which are Teachers, some of which are Healers, some of which are Muses, and so on. We chose to Teach. The 4th Level, then, is from where every Entity of the Causal will put into effect its ideas and ideals, through Guiding, Teaching, Healing, Musing, etc. From this Level, we begin our direct access of the Akashic Plane. The Akashic exists within every Plane in some form. Even within the Physical Plane, the Instinctive Center is a line to the Akashic Plane, or a part of it. The high Causal Plane, then, is from where Transcendental Souls incarnate, or the 6th Soul Age. Transcendental Souls incarnate from the 5th, 6th, or 7th Levels of the Causal. Keep in mind that a Transcendental Soul is a single fragment incarnated as a representative of the collective knowledge of the Entity from the Causal. This incarnation is still subject to all of the scathing, distractions, and problems of being Human, however, but will have the entire Entity as direct support, if the Personality allows for it. There are many Transcendental Souls who incarnate who fail in that respect, though they certainly "have a good time." The Mental Plane is the exalted Causal Plane, where direct Intellectual contact is made with Tao. The Messianic Plane is the exalted Astral Plane, where direct Emotional contact is made with Tao. The Buddhic Plane is the exalted Physical Plane, where direct contact is made with Tao, or merging. Infinite Souls incarnate from one of these Planes, when incarnated, and bring the Logos of Truth, Love, or Energy, respectively. There are 7 Levels within each of these, but they are even more difficult to convey in any linear terms than the Causal Plane's Levels. It is easier to understand them in terms of Lower, Mid, and Higher. The Lower tend to be about introductions to that Plane, and a refining of focus, with the mid-plane being the implementation of that focus, and the higher being the comprehension of the results of all of that. We will pause now for your questions on this subject. We know this is a vast subject that can be difficult to package, but it is a subject that is relevant and can be comprehended. Question: How “fine” does this get -- Do the 7 Levels of each Soul Age relate in any way to the 7 Levels of Existence? MEntity: They are, all, related in some resonant way, or they could not build upon each other. It is all music. The 7 Internal Monads within the 7 Levels within the 7 Soul Ages within the 7 Planes. The 7 Levels of a Soul Age, can be understood when superimposing the 7 Planes as ways to understand those Levels. Comparing the Physical Plane to the 1st Level of a Soul Age can be helpful. Comparing the Astral Plane to the 2nd Level can be helpful. Comparing the Causal to the 3rd Level can be helpful. And so on. Keep in mind that there will be resonance, but not definition. In other words, clues and insights can be gained through these comparisons, but Soul Level is very different from Age, and Plane. Our system is designed for "mixing and matching" as a means to gain more insight. Question: Not to put too fine a point on the terminology that was developed today, but I would like a reiteration or confirmation that the use of the terms by you of Galaxy, Galaxy Cluster, or Tao as a Universe has little in common with our scientific astrophysics use of these terms and that further the use of Tao isn't equivalent to “All that is.” MEntity: There are some correlations. We think that some Astrophysicists are onto something in terms of organizing the universe. Consciousness equals Gravitation, to some extent. Consciousness is the gravitational force that holds together matter. Galaxies are grouped and clustered in terms of gravity and consciousness, and this is parallel to some working theories or observations. Comment: Except you define these by groups of 49 MEntity: So while we are not drawing direct parallels to the more mundane use of these terms, there are some similarities that are relevant. We think that some Astrophysicists choose the same number. Though we do not think it has become a standard. Question: So would our "Big Bang Theory" be an oversimplification of the Buddhaic Plane in action and is the theory even close to being accurate? MEntity: It is quite close, at least in terms of the fragmentation that then moved into forms. Though there are scientific details that will always be lacking in terms of describing or defining these origins, it works very well in symbolic ways. Question: How are suicides processed on the 1st level astral, and where do they go from there? [note corrected from 2nd Level to 1st Level] MEntity: They are processed in a multitude of ways that would be similar to experiencing dreams that play out all varieties of scenarios that help to comprehend the process of choices that led to the death, as well as an observation of all of the parallels remaining that are not dead. The Astral Plane is very similar to "Earth," or the Physical Plane, and feels very "real" on many levels, though it is far more malleable in terms of matter. Many who experience suicide then will start the entire life over on the Astral, playing out new choices. We designated Suicides to the 1st Level, but all fragments incarnating will move among the first three Levels during and between lives. Lives that do not end in Suicide tend to move directly into the 2nd, while Suicides tend to move into the 1st. Question: can they get stuck there, as well? MEntity: This is because of the attachment to the life. No fragment is ever "stuck," but depending upon the processes necessary for that Personality to heal, it can take quite some time. The reason for those who have exited using Suicide tending to remain in the 1st Level is because that is the easiest for those who were a part of that life, and who remain incarnated, to access that person. This helps contribute to the healing. Once the healing begins, the replaying of the life begins. This is a subject in itself, but that is the basic idea. Question: At 5th level Astral, is the anguish experienced more by the individual fragments as they are laid "naked and exposed" to the other members of the Entity, or by the other members of the Entity as they learn all there is to know of everyone else? Are there still harsh judgments to overcome at that stage of evolution? Also, it has been said that Priests "come into their own" on the Astral. Does this usually occur at this stage, helping themselves and others through the difficult 5th level and then healing in the 6th level? MEntity: The difficulty is experienced in both ways. It can be quite terrifying and painful to have everything revealed, and just as terrifying and painful to learn what one did not know while alive. This is especially difficult for those Personalities who were incarnations during the Baby and Young. The Mature and Old Souls eventually lose the interest in dishonesty, secrets, and privacy. The Personalities of Essence who were the most honest, vulnerable, and comfortable with exposure tend to work with those younger Personalities in resolving the shocking revelations. Every Personality of every lifetime is represented as its own identity and speaks for itself, so to speak. Comment: I wonder if this is then repeated at each merge after that MEntity: What you might experience as great halls are used for these processes, with all of the Personalities organized into tiers of emotional honesty for then working with mediating among all of those who had the most difficult times with those qualities. Comment: this sounds as much an intra-Essence process as inter-Essence. MEntity: It is often quite upsetting to find out that "best friend sally" had been exploiting you for access to your "loving husband bill" and that you knew none for the better. But all of you will know "everything" at some point. None of this is Karmic, but entirely focused on healing. In terms of Priests, they are the fragments who run these meetings, and help to direct the healing, as they tend to have the greatest extremes of Personalities that range between manipulatively dishonest and painfully honest. Priests quite often have a theme of "knowing what is good for you," or "the highest good," and doing whatever it takes to impose that. Every Role has a part in the processes of the Higher Astral, but it is organized and directed by the Priests. Question: How and in what form is the information on the Akashic Plane stored and accessed, and is there a way for us to visualize it? MEntity: We do not know how to describe this, but we can try to describe it in relative terms: We would have to say that it is database that is like an ocean of light that has no form until directly accessed. The closest we can come to describing this to you is in how your own imagination works. Your imagination gives rise to form from an ocean of light, if you will. However, Imagination is not information, and it is emotional. The Akashic Plane behaves in a similar way to imagination, except that it is in response to Thought. That is why it is such a tedious process for learning to access and interpret the data, because if any element of emotion is involved, the data is "tainted" or distorted with imagination, and is not pure information. In much the same way that the Physical Plane must be transcended while diving into the utter profundity of emotions in the Astral, so must the Emotional Plane be transcended while diving into the utter profundity of intellect in the Causal. It is not that one is better or worse than the other, but simply different processes of focus and experience. The way it works for us is that each of you have a "room" here that is your personal part of the Akashic. When we work with you in a way that requires our accessing this, we open that room and it reveals to us the details necessary for us to respond to your questions. Those details are revealed to us in two ways: your way, and our way. We get to see the data in your terms, first, which is often rich with emotional elements. We must then strip the emotional embellishments away from that data to get the most refined and accurate responses delivered to you. The more emotional your questions, the more difficult that process is. This is why your questions about relationships and mate agreements and other desired, longed for, craved, grieved, etc. can be difficult for us to deliver clearly to you. Add to that the fact that as soon as data includes another fragment and his or her data, we have to double the work of that process. Of course, that description is not as complicated as our description sounds, but it is a fair description. On the most basic levels, we can say this: The Akashic Plane of a fragment (instinctive center) or of an entire Universe are simply interfaces for recording, accessing, and interpreting all of the variations on the interference patterns that exist. The actual medium is the medium, itself. Question: Is it possible for higher plane teachers to physically, suddenly manifest without being born on the physical plane? Or is that a myth? MEntity: We have never heard of such a thing. That is not to say that they cannot "appear," but this would be generated from through the lower astral, or the Imagination, and can be just as effective. Question: So if consciousness is the gravitational force that holds matter together, what is it that pushes them apart? Astrophysicists have deemed this "dark energy" and "dark matter" in that it is so dark and non-interacting that we don't know anything about it. What is your interpretation of this? MEntity: We must first say that the concept of "dark matter" will eventually be replaced with better terminology and understanding, as it is found to be far more active than suspected. For the sake of working with current terminology and understanding, we will say that it could be said to be the unconscious. Not the subconscious, but the unconscious. And by "unconscious," we simply mean the unformed, and the medium from which form is formed. Question: like unrealized potential energy? MEntity: And realized. It is a resource. Question: In what ways and what type of karma can be resolved on the third level astral that do not require a physical plane experience? MEntity: Any Karma that did not require a body. A Physical Body, that is. Question: and what would that be? MEntity: Mind Fucking, Betrayal, Emotional Abandonment or Neglect, etc. Philanthropic Inspiration, Emotional Healing, etc. Question: how would these be resolved? MEntity: Often in quite similar methods as would be used through a Physical Plane body, but simply not actually being Physical. The familiarity of the Physical Plane is replicated as a fairly consistent and large mapping of the Astral for just such things. What we spoke about in the Levels was specific to that 3rd Level, in that once discarnate, further Karma can continue to be burned, but that is not the only Level that can address non-Physical Karma. Some of this happens even as you are incarnated. We know of many of you who have awakened from a rather profound dream of affection and love from some unknown relationship, or have played out scenarios that have no bearing on your current life, but felt like lifetimes lived, or have shared profoundly erotic and intimate moments with a "famous" person that were clearly more than fantasy. These can often be a burning of a ribbon. Question: So even after cycling off, there is opportunity to burn off any remaining karma that does not require physical form? MEntity: Often those Karma addressed on the 3rd Level after cycling off are much like "bonus" rounds that both parties had dropped as requiring balance, but are then addressed for the sheer sake of experience.
  8. April 4, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel 7 Spheres of Awareness of Essence NOTE: The word “Levels” was not a very accurate word for what Michael was trying to convey in the chat on this Topic. I found when editing the transcript that Michael suggested SPHERES instead. This gives a far more accurate picture to the development of Awareness in a life. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand the topic to be “7 Spheres of Awareness of Essence.” We will share what we can in regard to this within the time available. As many of you are aware, the Physical Plane is not the only Plane of existence. The Personality only exists within the Physical Plane, along with the Physical Body, while Essence exists to some degree in all Planes “at once.” In any given lifetime, the Personality is capable of gaining awareness of its own Essence in varying circles of awareness. A Soul Age or Essence Role or Overleaves do not limit the Sphere of Awareness, though it can be said that these things contribute to the ease or challenge of gaining awareness. The oldest soul may have a particularly difficult lifetime that inhibits awareness, while a younger soul may find blissful connection to Essence on all levels. It is the choice of Personality as to whether it wishes to have a connection to Essence on a conscious level and to what degree. Essence NEVER imposes itself on its Personality. The Personality is too valuable for that kind of relationship. Essence needs the Personality as an extension of itself to explore and learn from the Physical Plane. Essence cannot exist fully where you are incarnated without a body of some sort. For that reason, Essence allows the Personality to seek Essence as Personality sees fit, though Essence is ever watchful and loving to each version of Personality within the Physical Plane. Though Essence is not as attached to the Physical Plane as a Personality, Essence still finds great empathy and ever-growing love for each Personality. The Tao, and by extension the Essence, finds it to be a far more loving relationship to have what is created seek the creator, rather than the creator enforcing itself on the life. As Personality and the Body grows within each lifetime, it must “re-remember” all of its Soul Levels and Ages and regain that level of consciousness and perspective all over again. It is stored in the Instinctive Center exactly where you are in your development as Essence, but each new Body must regain consciousness as a means to house the perspective of Essence. Some may or may not reach the previous level of Soul Age. It is perfectly possible to have a Young Soul lifetime wherein the fragment is technically an Old Soul, depending on several factors in Personality. The difference is that each Soul Level has its capacity to gain up to and through all 7 Spheres of Awareness. It could easily be said that these Spheres of Awareness are the Levels WITHIN the Soul Levels. The 7 Internal Monads could be said to be the process of INTERNAL rites of passage toward moving through a Soul Level, while the 7 Spheres of Awareness may be said to be the EXTERNAL process of moving through a Soul Level. Both must be completed and experienced within as many lives as it takes before moving to a new Soul Level. The 7 Spheres of Awareness then could be described as follows: Sphere One: This is the simplest Sphere of Awareness. This Sphere is basic to any Sentient Being. This is self-awareness on the most rudimentary and mechanical level. You are aware you are alive; that you must feed yourself; that you must protect yourself; that you must interact with life. Sphere One is the most separated, narrow, and isolated of all Spheres of Awareness. There is no real concept of “spirit” or anything more than what is immediately tangible. This would extend into areas of “love” and other such intangible experiences. The fragment perceiving from within this Sphere merely does what it needs to do to survive and to gain the next experience. This fragment usually experiences life solely from the Negative Poles of the Personality and rejects all forms of intervention for helping raise its awareness. There is an absolute disconnection from all life forms around this fragment. It is hard for them to even understand the “point of living.” Sphere Two: This is the Sphere wherein you get a glimpse of life through the Positive Poles of your Overleaves. You gain a bit of awareness as to what your Essence is like, even if not fully defined. You decide you must have a soul. That much is at least considered to be possible. This Sphere of Awareness begins to expand beyond the limitations of the Body and into the realms of possibilities. Imagination becomes more harnessed for creativity, rather than fear and protection, as in Sphere One, and the fragment begins to consider his dreams along with other concepts that are not tangible, yet acknowledged as experienced. It is a Sphere in which the fragment begins to consider his relationship with himself as more than a machine, but a BEING. Sphere Three: Expanding beyond the Spheres previous to this, Sphere Three allows the fragment to begin to consider the intangibilities between it and others, not just within. The fragment begins to long for and seek deeper intimacy. This Sphere is marked with the awareness that other fragments share a history with you that extends beyond the current life and Personality, even if this is not quite understood. The relationship to Time begins to change and there is less emphasis on it as a constraint, but rather as a convenience. Sphere Four: This is the Sphere of Awareness that brings a fragment to the reality its own Past Selves to-date. The fragment becomes capable of acknowledging wisdom gained from outside the confines of the current life and allows influences from Past and Future Lives alike. This Sphere finds Personality capable of recognizing patterns in the life and the life of others, enabling the fragment to envision probable futures as they are created or as were planned before the life. The fragment begins to realize that the Personality focused on at any given moment does not diminish the reality of MANY versions of that same Personality across Parallel Universes created by Essence to house all of the choices possible. This is the Sphere that the fragment truly has the capability for channeling, healing, directing energy, and using psychic tools. (We will note here that ALL Spheres are capable of Intuition, which is simply the extension and combination of physical senses. True psychic awareness, though, is not the same thing.) Sphere Four is the first time a fragment discovers a true relationship between the Personality and the life and finds a deep sense of trust and safety as the life unfolds. Sphere Five: This is the Sphere in which you begin to see others as extensions of yourself. It is profoundly realized that the helping of others to resolve their own troubles will also contribute to your own lessons on many levels. This Sphere brings with it the realization and awareness that the Personality is a temporary and a beautiful “child” of Essence. A strange double awareness will be experienced here, wherein the trials and challenges of the life indulged in, while maintaining a consistent awareness through the perspective of Essence that “all is well”. Sphere Six: This is the Sphere of Awareness that brings with it the realization that the Universe has an awesome structure that can be understood. A new, consistent relationship to what might be called “spirit” then develops. You begin to recognize the “signatures” of different spiritual families, or Entities, and find the lifetime heavily focused on what might be called “the path.” This “path” will be, of course, defined and created by the individual fragment, but a deep recognition that ALL are on variations of similar paths will be incorporated into the life. This is the first time the Fragment begins to recognize the value of life in other species beyond itself. Energy and life force, as expressed in all its forms, begins to become deeply important to the fragment to be in harmony with. While the Fifth Sphere allows the fragment to see other fragments as extensions of self, the Sixth Sphere will build on this and find this extends to animals outside the realm of that fragment’s own Sentient Species. The fragment profoundly grasps that other beings are capable of relative fear and have relative emotional lives, too. From this Sphere a deep longing for what might be called “home” begins to motivate the life. Sphere Seven: This is the Sphere wherein the fragment finally grasps how to use all of the tools of the Body, the Physical Plane, and the Personality and finds the life unfolding, changing, and being created in profoundly acceptable ways. ALL limitations of the lifetime are found to be acceptable, while all of the possibilities are recognized as well. There is no division between Essence and Personality in any way. All Levels of Soul Age gained to that point are used effectively and appropriately. This is the Sphere where it is difficult to find anything ugly about life. A childlike innocence is regained and everything becomes new and fun again, without fear of anything. We include the “fear of fear” in that statement. Sphere Seven allows Fear as a tool appropriately. If fear is experienced, it is recognized as simply part of everything that is wondrous about the life. There are, of course, far more detailed descriptions of each Sphere of Awareness available, but we share this for you within the time frame available here. What we have shared should allow for adequate consideration. We will now take any questions you may have for us on this topic. [val] Can one be aware and functioning on several Spheres at once, i.e., I resonate with Spheres three through seven, I feel as if I’ve been there and living these Spheres, or is your essence setting up these stages to bring them to your awareness so that when you get there it feels like home. [M_Entity] Different Spheres of Awareness may be present within different contexts of your life. For instance, you may have Sphere 3 Awareness when in relationships, while having Sphere 4 in your Career. Your Awareness will fluctuate throughout the lifetime and you will recognize different time frames having different Spheres of Awareness as well. Although you progress through the lifetime to gain Spheres of Awareness, you will move “up and down” through the Spheres as relative to your experiences. Sphere One, for example, will ALWAYS be available in any lifetime. It is the Sphere of the heaviest of Karmic relationships. A fragment may have reached the Sphere Seven of Awareness in a lifetime, but a ribbon of Karma may be chosen to burn and the Awareness will then constrict to Sphere One as it is dealt with. [mdfsage] What is meant by “to find other animals outside the realm of that fragments sentience”? [M_Entity] In your case, the Awareness would begin to include strong resonance and recognition to beings who are NON-human. The recognition may only begin with the recognition of other ensouled beings, such as Cetacean and Gorillas, but eventually would include those beyond that. [val] How do we regain consciousness, and open this instinctive center to better communicate with essence? [M_Entity] In the interest of using the time available efficiently through this channel, we will say we have answered this question in other chats. These transcripts would be available through Troy or his web site. Troy, or other students, will direct you to those detailed responses. There are different ways each Essence Roles may find to open connections to Essence. [Kathryn41] If you advance through a soul age level within a life – say Old 3 to Old 4, do you start again at Sphere 1 of awareness and ‘lose’ the previous awareness, or do you overlap and keep that awareness and start over. How does that work? [M_Entity] These are rare and interesting lifetimes when a fragment transitions within a lifetime without taking on a new body. The Older Soul finds this process to be less confusing, but still have a great deal of challenge in this shifting. When a transition of Soul Age or a Soul Level occurs within a lifetime, yes, the Personality will undergo a great change in some way, even if only over a brief period of time. Considering that the Body will have not lost its memory, it is quite possible to regain those Spheres of Awareness within minutes. There is a process that occurs for those who move Soul Levels within a lifetime. We refer to that experience as an Octave Ending/Beginning, and would be another topic in itself. But to simplify the response, since the Body will not have been replaced, the evolution through the Monads and the Awareness Spheres will not have been lost when entering the new Soul Level. [sam-nemo] I thought 6 level was the heaviest level of karmic payback and most psychic not 1 or 4. [M_Entity] You are comparing the 6th Level of a Soul Age to the 6th Sphere of Awareness of Essence. They are completely different contexts. When in the 6th Level of a Soul Age, depending on the Soul Age, the lifetime may be submerged in Sphere One of Awareness or not. We realize English is a bit limited in our choices for describing progressions and evolution. We suggest that similar terms do not mean the same thing, necessarily, when in different context. For most Older Souls, Sphere Five of Awareness is quite common when experiencing the 6th Level of Soul Age. This allows for the life to be lived consciously, while still being free to indulge in the Karma. [sam-nemo] Therefore essence awareness lags soul age. [M_Entity] It may help to think of the Spheres of Awareness as being angles of perception toward an experience. In other words, as Awareness progresses, you move from only Personality experiencing, to Essence AND Personality being present for the experience. We are open to suggestions for more appropriately naming these 7 Spheres. And yes, Awareness Spheres may exceed or “lag” behind Soul Age, but eventually Awareness on the 7th Sphere must be reached as a means to move to the next Soul Level. [ClaireN] Please expand on the “true relationship between personality and the life” as mentioned in Sphere four. [M_Entity] It is the first time a fragment may consider that life happens FROM them, rather than TO them. It is the first time a fragment may realize that he or she may not only being learning how to choose, but also choosing how to learn. We will conclude here then. Good night to all of you.
  9. MICHAEL SPEAKS 061310 HOW GUIDES WORK Based on the request of Nicholas via the Topic Suggestion Forum: So many people around me talk about receiving information from their guides. Some seem to literally hear their guides and others seem to sense their guides. Recently I have met a healer who seems to follow most of his guides instructions, and I find the idea of that unsettling. I think it would be really helpful to explore this topic and gain clarity about who/what our guides are, how they interact with us, and what tend to be our illusions/delusions about the whole thing. MEntity: The topic of choice is one that presents a challenge to those in physical form, and we will do our best to offer solutions and practices that may be implemented for bridging the gap between the Physical and Non-Physical in terms of relationships. There is a multitude of relationships happening between your Essence and other Essences at any given time, many of which will have no real or obvious bearing on the Physical incarnation at the time. However, there are, for most Personalities, at least 4 Non-physical relationships of significance that have direct bearing on the life, whether acknowledged, or not. The first relationship of the 4, of course, being the one you have with “yourself,” with your own Essence. Beyond the obvious relationship with your own Essence, every fragment will have 3 Guides, one of which is a Primary Guide and chosen as a relationship that arcs across the entire lifetime. Two additional Guide POSITIONS are also always in place, though the fragments who fulfill those Positions may change across the lifetime. There are two ways to understand these three positions: The Primary Guide = LIFE GUIDE, with two additional Guides fulfilling the positions of RELATIONSHIP and EVENT Or PRIMARY GUIDE = INTELLECTUAL Guide, with two additional Guides fulfilling the relativity of the EMOTIONAL and ACTION Positions. ESSENCE would be the Assimilative or Neutral Guide, so to speak. The Life/Intellectual Guide would be directly accessed through the Attitude of the Personality. The Relationship/Emotional Guide is the guide who is currently on call for help with relationships, emotional issues, inspirational needs, etc. This guide is directly accessed through the Mode of the Personality. The Events/Action Guide is the guide who is currently on call for help with decisions, choices, navigation, directions, material issues, health, sex, etc. This guide is directly accessed through the Goal of the Personality. These three Positions, even if the guides change in two of them, will ALWAYS be a part of a lifetime; even your first lifetime will have these because they are populated by peers, and not necessarily by “higher beings,” or more intelligent, wiser beings. These are your friends. The fragment (or fragments) who fulfill the Primary/Intellectual Position is permanent for the lifetime, but the other two positions will have several Essences fulfill them over time, depending on the current life experiences at the time. All of the Positions can be populated by more than one fragment. As Essence evolves, the Guide Positions can tend to become quite populated by several fragments because acceptance of support is regarded as a form of evolution. The Primary, if it is populated by more than one fragment, will have that set of fragments for the entire lifetime. The additional Positions may have a set of fragments fulfilling them during one period of the life, and then rotate out to a new set over time. These flexible Positions can also have one or more fragment supporting a sub-context of Relationships, for instance, while others support another sub-context, so that you are supported, say, in Work Relationships, Intimate Relationships, Public Relationships, etc. However many Guides an incarnated fragment may have, the POSITIONS will always remain the same. This is because those positions are highly-specific to the basic contexts of any physical incarnation, and quite specific to the media (chakras) that are used for communication and exchange between the physical and non-physical. It will never be necessary for you to have tangible access to your guides for you to still receive the tangible effects of your relationship to your guides. In other words, in the same way that the most loving of friends can give you the most profound of support and insight and direction, it will always be YOU who makes the ultimate difference; in relationships with Guides, this is even truer. Your Guides cannot (and will not) interfere with, or intervene in, your life, and their physical impact can only be felt through your actions that fulfill any influence from those Guides. There are times that one's guides might seem to influence the Physical Plane in near-magical ways, leaving a fragment feeling as if there are profound powers in place, but beyond some instances of delusion, there are some unique instances of physical impact independent from you, but they are not exactly what they seem to be. We will elaborate on that another time. Now that we have shared the basic framework of how we see Guides organizing and working with incarnated fragments, we will respond more directly to the subject of accessing your guides more intimately, and the challenges and pitfalls that may be a part of that process. For most fragments, the tangibility and intimacy of a relationship with a Guide will never rise beyond the level of intimacy one has with his or her own Essence, and all forms of guidance will funnel through that relationship. The irony in this is that the more aligned one is with Essence, the less Essence is seen, or experienced, as a higher force, or guide that is accessed as existing beyond the wholeness of self. In other words, the more intimate one is with Essence, the less-obvious the gap between the Physical and Non-Physical, in terms of relationship with Essence and other Guides. Part of the process for gaining that level of intimacy does include a phase through which every fragment will most likely go in which the division between Physical and Non-Physical is quite pronounced and subject to personification, which can be experienced as a fairly profound, tangible relationship with the unseen. Even if Essence has gained that level of intimacy with a previous incarnation, a current incarnation will most likely go through that phase of differentiation before it accepts the lack of division as the medium for intimacy. The Stages of Differentiation in regard to non-physical relationships are similar to, if not parallel to, the stages of Soul Ages: Infant, Baby, Young, Mature, and Old. Keep in mind that these Stages of Differentiation are not specific to any Soul Age, so an Old Soul can be at any Stage of Differentiation described below. Once a fragment has begun to ponder the possibility that there may very well be "spirit guides," and other non-physical influences, it launches into that exploration from an Infant Stage of approach, laced with superstition, fear, resistance, etc. Spirits are seen as vague forces, mythological figures, ancestors, curses, demons, etc. However they are interpreted, they are regarded with fear that either requires protection or great respect. The Baby Stage of Differentiation begins to "hear voices," see omens everywhere, take the relationship in most literal terms, relaying the insights as if coming from instructional forces. This Stage regards these relationships as superseding individual choice, and regardless of Soul Age, will often feel that these spirits hold far more authority over life than any incarnated being. The Young Stage of Differentiation begins to emphasize the relationship to non-physical forces as one that requires sharing that relationship in a way that instructs and guides others, usually with great emphasis on urgency, timelines, looming shifts, etc. This Stage is marked by rallying others to listen to what is being shared, prompting either anxiousness or exciting anticipation, usually regarding upcoming “shifts,” or other looming change on the horizon that requires instruction, intangible experiences, heavy submersion in the imagination as a sanctuary of escape or hope. The Mature Stage of Differentiation is the first time true intimacy begins to occur with these non-physical relationships. The Mature Stage softens the differentiation and begins to blur the lines between self and Guides. That blurring is a confusing stage because what seems so defined, literal, and tangible by other reports coming from "younger" stages of differentiation, now seems illusory, imaginary, suspicious. This is a stage filled with questioning, discernment, and even the clearest of communication is scrutinized and held up for validation. Two things begin to emerge in the Mature Stage of Differentiation: One is the intimacy that we have already described as blurring, and the other is the realization that one has the skill to tap into one's own innate wisdom and resources as opposed to depending on the influences of others. The Mature Stage, ironically then, has most of one's guides turning the fragment back to his or her own self as its own guide. Rather than instructions or influence being given in response to the question of "What Should I Do?" it is met with the response equivalent to "Well, what Do YOU Think/Feel You should Do?" Guides are now seen as positions of support, rather than as positions of force and resource. An Aside: These same Stages of Differentiation can also be found in ones methods for relating to the physical relationships of support in ones life. The Old Stage of Differentiation would find the relationship with one's Essence and Guides to have lost all boundaries, nearly all differentiation, and to have moved into a relationship we might describe as "soft intuition." We use the phrase "soft intuition" because, for the most part, the fragment will have grasped that he or she is supported, loved, and that there are forces and resources at work that will take care of the non-physical aspects of the life so the Personality is free to focus on the living of life. The "soft intuition" is the general tuning in to the self and to guides that allows for alerts, sensations, cues, synchronicity, etc. that help in the various contexts of life. However, as in the Old Soul Age of living, it includes all previous Stages of Differentiation, so that the fragment can, if necessary, call upon Guides for help, insight, force, resource, guidance, etc., but this is usually done from a different angle than ever before, in that even when this support is called upon for more tangible effects, it is understood that those tangible effects will have to come from your implementation of the insights, guidance, influence, etc. There is no urgency, no fantastical representations, no necessity for theatrics, no call to rescue the world, no secrecy, no recruitment, no warnings, no advice or instruction, etc. There is only support, insight, guidance, resource, and force to the extent that one receives, translates, and expresses that through oneself. Understanding these Stages of Differentiation, one can now see how the evolving intimacy with ones Guides and Essence begins to lose the imposed personifications and “magical” power that is brought to the interpretations of those same relationships earlier on. The Stages most susceptible to Delusions would be those of the Baby and Young Stages. The Stages most lacking in tangibility and obvious force would be the Mature and Old Stages. In regard to accessing your Guides: We mentioned previously that your Primary/Intellectual/Expression/Life Guide is accessed through your ATTITUDE; Your Emotional/Inspirational/Relationship Guide through your MODE; your Moving/Action/Events Guide through your GOAL. Understanding this can help you to bring awareness to how/where to look/feel for the relationship that exists between you and your Guide/s. For instance, as you wish to find a more sensory relationship with your Life Guide Position, it will be found most obvious in your primary philosophies about your life. How you interpret your life can be helped by your Primary Guide. If you find you are interpreting your life as something "that sucks," for instance, it can be helpful to call upon your Primary Guide for help in lifting some of the psychic obstructions that block your ability to interpret life more accurately as the beauty that it is. The "tangibility" of that relationship can be acknowledged during or after the help has taken place, but it would most likely show up as a bright moment of insight, clarity, possibility, etc. If that moment is dismissed, it will not have meant that there was no support, but that you chose not to use it or acknowledge it. If you find your greatest distraction in your life is your lack of relationship with others, you can call upon your Relationship/Emotional Guides to help set up your Agreements, secure them, attract them, etc. This help would most likely show up as impulses for attending certain events, running an errand, reaching out, taking a risk, being vulnerable, etc. The fact that you may choose to stay safe in your isolation, or may default to presumptions about your attractiveness based on your patterns of the past, or may ignore impulses, then it is not that you did not have tangible exchanges with your Guide/s, but that you simply dismissed them. And, of course, similar scenarios could be said as examples for your Events/Action/Goal Guide/s. Your Primary Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through ORACLES, such as Tarot, Astrological Transit interpretations, iChing, and other systems of synchronicity that provide opportunities for interpretation, insight, and higher perspectives. Your Emotional/Relationship Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through DREAMS, which may or may not be recalled. Dreams (Astral Plane) provide a meeting ground for all fragments, physical or non-physical. Your Events/Action Guide/s can most-easily be accessed through OTHER PEOPLE. By this we mean that support, direction, help from your own Guides can often be delivered through the help you seek through physical people, which often requires asking for that help, reaching out, letting people know you need them. The changes that can come from that are often the result of support that your Action Guides can provide because of the actions being taken by more people involved. Combining all of these is your built-in non-physical support for any incarnation. Of course, we have much more to say on this subject, but we will say in conclusion to this response at this time, that the ability to discern the validity of support from a Guide must simply be learned from experience. There is no short cut. In other words, you may consult your Tarot and find that your interpretation did not lend the insight and clarity that you thought was so obvious in your reading, but this is not a sign to halt your attempt at insight through that relationship, instead it is an invitation to continue practicing, observing, and learning to differentiate between projection, and true communication. The same could be said of you and any of your relationships. [QUESTION] Would it be correct then to say that as one evolves through the stages, their guides begin to lose importance, as the individual is beginning to act as their own guide? [MICHAEL] We would say that it is no different from the relationships one has in one's own physical life: growing older and wiser does not equate relationships growing less important, but that the relationships grow free from the clutter of dependency, imposition, personification, projection, expectation, etc. Relationships with physical or non-physical beings are often like the process of learning how to boat on the open waters: at first, all of the influences are scary, powerful, and seem to have a direct force upon the boat, directions, and experiences of the ride. As one learns to work with those forces, one develops the tools for directing and harnessing those forces. Eventually, you are taking to the waters with oar, rudder, motor, sails, etc., and all of your choices are your own, using your own tools, going where you want to go, but still moving along with those same forces, resources, and support for your movement across the waters. It is not that those forces are less-important, but that they are funneled through a myriad of tools that you have learned to use so that those forces merely support what you choose to do. We realize this is a limited and potentially-misleading analogy, but if confined to the context we just described, it is valid. [QUESTION] Can the Essences that are your guides be the Essences of Personalities you know within a lifetime? [MICHAEL] It is not impossible for that to be the case, though it is not done very often. It is possible because any given Personality is only a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the energy that is Essence, and Essence is not limited to any time frame or geographical location. Therefore, an Essence can be incarnated alongside your incarnation, but fulfill a Position as Guide in a non-physical manner. For the most part, this "makes no sense" to most fragments, so it is rare. Keep in mind that when an Essence fulfills the Position of Guide, the experience for that Guide is quite similar to incarnating, which is one of the reasons a Guide can have a "Personality" and personal history that contributes to its method of support. This is why it "makes no sense" to play both a physical incarnation and act as a Guide in the same life, because that relationship can be fulfilled through one or the other, making both redundant and unnecessary. [QUESTION] Can guides be nonhuman--or formerly human? non-formerly human, I mean? [MICHAEL] Yes, that is possible for specialized contexts within the Positions, and this is quite common among different species that share worlds and star systems. For a species that is isolated, such as yours, the Positions of Guides are fairly restricted to those who know what it is like to live as your species. For instance, the Essence of a Sentient Dolphin can be a Guide for those Humans working with Dolphins, otherwise, a Dolphin as your Guide for living life as a Human is fairly useless. This is not to say that relationships between Sentience of different Species does not occur in non-physical realms, but that the networking is limited to the extent that the networking is reflected in the Physical Plane. [QUESTION] Would you give me an example where I chose to use one of these 3 guides/positions to help me with a problem, issue, situation so that I may be able to recognize their influence in the future? [MICHAEL] Your Primary Guide is who helped you to find us. Exploring the process that led to those moments may be insightful. Your Relationship Guide/s helped you to extend beyond physical limitations to build current relationships related to finding our teaching. Exploring that process can lend insight into that area. [QUESTION] How often do the guides you have 'shift' in and out of their positions - for example, my ET was one of my emotional guides for a while but has reincarnated again and isn't available. I feel that there are those who come and go as well as those who 'stay.' [MICHAEL] The more fluid Positions or Relationships and Events shift and change to the degree that one's life shifts and changes. If one notices an arcing pattern in the realm of relationships, yet is played out from relationship to relationship, there may be one Guide helping with the overall pattern, while others support the individual relationships along the way. Relationship and Event Positions can go through many changes in Guides, but it does not mean that one Guide cannot remain for the entire lifetime in that Position. It simply means that those Positions are prone to change and flexibility, whereas the Primary Position is not. [QUESTION] But guides do 'shift' out sometimes? And another shifts in - as you said, with changing circumstances? eg - a health issue becomes predominant so a 'health' focus guide comes 'online'? [MICHAEL] That is correct. [QUESTION] could you give me an example of how these guide assist me creatively and how do I know it is not imagination when contact is made? [MICHAEL] First we will point out that one's Imagination is the highest frequency tool available to the human body, and it IS the medium through which conscious contact, influence, and exchange with non-physical Guides will be made. Imagination does not equate Delusion. Imagination is a tool that can be used for Delusion or for Direction, and includes the spectrum between. To truly comprehend and sense the validity of exchange between the physical and non-physical one must first embrace Imagination as the very language that will be used for that. As in the learning of any language, practice is important, and differentiation of "voices" becomes easier with that practice. Delusional voices will always exist, and will actually never go away, but one can begin to recognize the hopeful, desperate, projected, forced, urgent "voices" of Delusion vs the soft, intuitive, gentle insights, creative inspirations that come from Direction. We use the word "Direction" for the more positive aspects of Imagination because the positive aspects of Imagination move one forward, while Delusion moves in circles, or remains "stuck." [QUESTION] delusion=ego? [MICHAEL] Ego does not equate Delusion. Ego is simply the self-conscious aspect of the Personality, which can be self-conscious in terms of awareness, or in terms of indulgence or self-defense. [QUESTION] have my guides helped me creatively? [MICHAEL] If you have felt inspired and created something fulfilling, it would be safe to say that this was a result of a healthy exchange between you and your Guides, or you and Essence, or all of the above, so to speak. [QUESTION] This is in relation to what you said about animal guides- if one (like myself, who feels Hawk is my totem) does not directly work with an animal, can they still have an animal guide? [MICHAEL] For the most part, Totems are a form of "template" that is used as a means to personify a relationship with a Guide who is, by incarnational definition, "Human." If it helps one to relate to the Primary Guide by using the symbolism of a Hawk, Bear, Cougar, Dragonfly, Ant, Water, Wind, Butterfly, Lion, Rabbit, Tree, Faearies, etc., then that does not diminish the relationship, it is simply a part of the Differentiation process. All Totems are symbolic. This is not to say that a relationship with those Kingdoms cannot be had, physically or non-physically, but when they are valid, they are simply affectionate relationships, not ones that provide profound life directions. Beyond the affectionate relationship, the rest is symbolic and up for the Sentient Being to interpret. For instance, if one were to have a Hawk as a “pet,” that relationship would be confined to the capacity for the Hawk to live in comfortably with a Human, and the insights gained would require the same symbolism, imagination, and interpretation that is used for the Totem relationship. Hawk Central, or Rabbit Central, or Dragonfly Central, for instance, do not provide individualized support and guidance for Humans, even if their part in the dynamic of Earth Life can be used as symbolic forms for the individual Human to grasp understanding and support. For example: If one were to feel that Hawk is one's Life Totem, then this might be symbolic of how the Primary Guide (of Human Sentience) works in overall Life. This might mean that one's ATTITUDE is aligned with the accepted symbolism of Hawk, and this means that one's philosophy of life, in general, is expressed as symbolic of a Hawk. It would also mean that when one seeks support and exchange with the Primary Guide, it may show up in the symbolic or literal form of Hawk, in the various extensions associated with Hawk, etc. [QUESTION] to clarify from earlier, you could have a Dolphin as a guide since they are ensouled, but non-ensouled "guides" are templates? [MICHAEL] That would be correct. The non-Sentient hive souls can become symbolic for personal uses, and/or develop affectionate relationships, but cannot technically play a role of Guide. We will conclude here, though we will repeat: there is much more to say on this topic should it be of interest to our students.
  10. [Excerpt from a private session originally published on January 4, 2011] [Martha] I’ve found a number of references in Troy’s channeling to Imagination, and how we don’t understand the possibilities of its use, regarding our multidimensional selves, parallels and probabilities. Are there levels to Imagination? Some deeper aspect of the teachings? [Michael_Entity] Imagination is the highest frequency that a Sentient body carries as a tool, and this could be said to correspond to the Causal Body of that fragment. The greater the use of the imagination as a tool, the more aligned one is with his or her Entity and its general intentions/agenda. The imagination could be said to have 3 functions, rather than levels, and those would be REPRODUCTIVE, CREATIVE, and INVOLUNTARY. Reproductive Imagination includes memory, crafts, recounting, recall, recognition, routine, etc. and even body maintenance. Creative Imagination includes ideas, art, solutions, potential, possibilities, anticipation, etc. and even body healing/recovery. Involuntary Imagination includes fear, instinct, defense, reactions, depression, psychoses, pathologies, etc, and even illnesses. Each function often overlaps with another function. In the context of accessing Parallels, the Reproductive Imagination comes into play.

    Jung and active imaginations

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2009] [Question] Could Michael please comment on the experiences of Carl Jung as documented in his recently released “Red Book”? In particular, I’m curious to hear about how Jung induced the “active imaginations” as described in this book. [Michael Entity] Jung merely observed a natural phenomenon of the culture of beliefs that are inclined toward personification, and in observing this, sought to harness it. We do not see any particular method for his inducing active imaginations, though he does appear to have developed cues to help, but rather he allowed room for that natural tendency in his therapies. This was revolutionary to some extent since these factors were not given any validity before his theories. We will also add that our channel has not read the book in question, so our comments are limited to our access to, and interpretation of, Jung’s records.

    Cadence theme – imagination

    [Excerpt from TT (POF): 2011-01-05] [Martha] Can you tell me the theme for my cadence? [Michael_Entity] Martha, for your Cadence of Sages, the theme could be described as IMAGINATION, or more specifically as Generating or Creating Imaginary Landscapes, which ultimately come to be meeting grounds for many, either when manifested literally, or retained as imaginary and accessed through others’ imagination. Your Cadence is responsible for one of the most-comfortable “lounges” on the Astral Plane for members of your own Entity (and often other Cadre Mates) between lives. Your Cadence generates these landscapes through entertainment and media for the most part, and when these cannot be shared in any meaningful way, the landscapes tend to grow internally and can become consuming to the individual Personality.
  13. [Excerpt from TT: 2011-06-12] [Brian_W] In a previous time it was mentioned that “Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions.” Could you please comment on how we may better use and understand our own imaginations and dreams, differentiate them from delusion, and use them to create new options for choices in this world / parallel? [MEntity] The key to the refinement and use of Imagination as a valid resource for creating new options and choices is through the process of Validation. Imagination will include a spectrum from the greatest potential to the greatest delusion. Validation is the process of measuring a new feeling, thought, or action against an established feeling, thought, or action. Internal Validation is vital for helping one to build his or her Personal Philosophies (truths), Relationships (loves), and Health (energy). External Validation is vital for helping one to share his or her Personal Truths, Relationships, and Health/Energy. True Validation is when both the Inner and Outer Validations coincide. Because Imagination is unlimited, the use of it can be a wonderful and dangerous process. We will say that as long as your Imagination must be kept to yourself in order to be “true,” then it is probably leaning toward Delusion, and away from Potential. We will say that as long as the majority of feedback from your outer world is contradictory to your Imagination, then it is, at least, still potential, which includes potentially delusional. One can see why this can be “tricky,” as one fragment full of potential may have surrounded oneself with fragments who challenge the Imagination, in general, and this can lead to questioning or rejecting one’s Imagination, while another fragment might be completely delusional and supported by many. However, we can say that the more one finds his or her footing in validating the Imagination, both internally and externally, the more one moves away from delusion. We will say that a safe equation might be that one who has not validated the potential of the Imagination within, will either find oneself surrounded by rejection of the potential, or support for the delusional.
  14. June 7, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report. This Report is for the weeks running between June 10 and June 23. Recall that our Energy Reports are not based on predictions, but rather, probabilities and momentum of consciousness based on collective choices. Over the next two weeks, more implementing of a wider circle of contact is the focus. This means more people in interactions with you in some way, either in dreams or in waking state. These fragments are in some way related to a larger picture, however small their contribution to your current perception. Regardless of your age in physicality, and regardless of your psyche relative to your Life Task, it appears to be a year centered around individuals increasing communion and exchange. The next month or so will bring you into examinations of your Needs involving Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance. In fact, NEEDS, in general, are at a height in examination over the next month or so, whether they are your primary needs or your neglected needs. Though Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance are the themes, all Nine Basic Needs (Security, Acceptance, Freedom, Exchange, Power, Expression, Expansion, Adventure, Communion) will be under examination. The challenge will be between the want to have your Needs fulfilled by fragments in your intimate circle, while the reality requires that any Need can ONLY BE FULFILLED BY YOURSELF. This will mean that you, yourself, may end up in positions that are asking you to fulfill Needs for someone else. This could create opportunities for truth, love, and energy to be infused into a relationship, or an opportunity to displace your responsibilities and “blame” others. Sensitivity will rise in terms of the fragments involved in your intimate circle, challenging you to choose between recognizing what you are Offering Vs Getting. Your culture supports in the most insidious of ways how to GET, but rarely how to truly Give. This certainly creates a dichotomy within, in regard to what you are to provide yourself Vs what is valid in accepting from external sources. Over the next two weeks, if you choose, you can examine your behavior in your intimate exchanges. Observe your REACTIONS. Your reactions are your messages over the next couple of weeks, at least in terms of discovering where you are responsible for fulfilling Needs that have been neglected for a time. We define “intimate exchanges” as anything involving conversation, touch, social grace, sex, sharing, eating together, and several other incidences of behavior which gauges another fragment involvement. As we said, Communion, Exchange, and Acceptance will be the “issues” over the next week, for many. This means it is a very important time to Offer valid sincerity, compassion, and attempts to “see past” the flaws of others. We will also add that at least 10 of you here have “messages” to collect from “strangers” in the next couple of weeks, regarding your next life steps. We would also venture to call the next couple of Weeks, “Sage Weeks,” meaning it is a time to view everyone as children, regardless of behavior and to trust in the “flaws” you see in others and yourself. It will be a time to allow room for major “mistakes” created by yourself or others, if you choose. Celebrate the many varied ways others express themselves, even if you “wish” for someone's change in behavior or someone is expecting a scripted behavior from you. The energy is available as support for experiences of true Exchange, Communion, and Acceptance, again, if you choose to utilize it. The most pivotal, powerful tool you will have over the next couple of weeks is a smile. We do not mean this in a trivial way. The Energy Report is commented on enough that we may move on, or take questions regarding it. Questions? [MaryBV] Would it harm us to know who will receive a message from a stranger? [Michael_Entity] No [MaryBV] Hahahah, ok who? [Michael_Entity] Anne, Annette, “nelson,” David, Ludmila, Marion, Troy, Lawrence, Leela, Mary. This is not conclusive, but a picture of the momentum at this point. There are “messages” for all of you; pivotal. It simply happens that the ten mentioned are in positions that allow contact with more of a “stream” of people through their various environments. [Anne49] would you define the true nature of giving? [Michael_Entity] The true nature of Giving is in creating an Exchange without the fear of “being ripped off.” Giving is not just an active offering of something, but a gauging of the recipient's capability to receive. To be put simply, True Giving is in the comprehension of Other as they are a part of an Exchange. True Giving, as an example, includes the allowance of OTHERS to Give what is natural to them. For instance, TOUCH. It is considered a violation in many ways to have a stranger touch you, when in reality it is a form of Giving for you to allow social contact from another fragment. We do not mean for you to reduce your boundaries to allow true violations, but a gentle touch, a bump, a brush against you, is not a violation, they are opportunities. Listening to another fragment without using the exchange as a platform to tell your own stories is another example of True Giving. Many of you are kind listeners, compassionate, and deeply helpful, but this does not mean you are Giving if your intentions are to “earn” another's love or to be able to “get them” to listen to you. Many with Self-deprecation are prone to do the latter. [Leela] My question relates to something that happened a little while ago. I am curious about the press conference called by high-level NASA and other government officials about extraterrestrial contact. How much of this was accurate, and will we see any real results of this? [Michael_Entity] The conference was valid and addressed many issues known and unknown to the participants previous to the exchange. There are some “serious” issues to be dealt with within the “higher governments” and NASA as you prepare for eventual revelations. Contact with off-planet species has been known to many in positions of “power” for over 50 years. There are fewer and fewer ways to “protect” the public, especially with the advent of faster and wider means of communication and research. Your world is almost as “small” as it will ever be, so these issues must be addressed if there is going to be any sense of “control” by those in positions of knowledge. You will see results of this conference, with the release of carefully regulated pieces of information, first with allusions, then with revelations. We, ourselves, have been “waiting” for a formal announcement of revelation for quite some time, as we have seen many fragments “pushing” to make it possible. Your world is almost ready to believe. [Liiona24] Is there any real intention to allow drilling for oil off the coast of Florida or is this being stages between the brothers to allow Jeb Bush look good when he “fights” his brother and “wins?” Cynical view perhaps, of what could be going on. [Michael_Entity] There is real intention to drill. Its probability is at 57%. There is no political conspiracy behind it, simply what some might call ignorance. [xyzlorenzo] Mormon roots are showing… can you tell me overleaves for Joseph Smith and just a little blurb about the his and the Mormon faith's significance to world affairs? [Michael_Entity] Joseph Smith: Early Mature Priest/Server, Artisan Cast, Acceptance, Passion, Idealist, Arrogance (double), Intellectual/Emotional. Mormonism is a mature soul religion as opposed to the baby soul religions such as Christianity and Hinduism. Its focus is on acceptance and inclusion, but its roots are heavily weighed down by Arrogance. The philosophy is still within the parameters of Baby Soul behavior, but with a broader definition of what is acceptable. There is still an emphasis on negative poles, even in the focus being Acceptance, as the focus is on Ingratiation, not Agape. In terms of its “significance to world affairs,” it is simply another religion. Religion, in general, is losing its footing in positions of power and authority as more Mature Souls question themselves. [clavis] Could Michael comment on which stage of the 4th IM that I'm going through? And how to stay on the positive pole through the process (the 4th IM)? Thanks. [Michael_Entity] We do not comment on personal situations in public chats; however, we will include a response to this, sent to you privately, when the transcript goes out. We will say you are at the 3rd Stage. [JNelson] (From my mom) How can I differentiate between past life recall and imagination? [Michael_Entity] They are the same. Imagination is incorrectly distrusted, when in reality it is your highest form of contact with various non-physical aspects of life. There IS a difference between delusion and perception, however. Delusion requires you to enforce a vision, while a memory of a past life, or perception, “happens.” [JNelson] But can't you create things completely original with your imagination? [Michael_Entity] Yes, you can create something completely original with imagination. Past Life Recall, as we said, “happens,” while creativity is actively pursued, which can lead to delusions. If you are seeking recall, for instance, in meditation, your differentiation will be more difficult, but the validity can come in the determination of the “past life's” significance NOW. If you are more entertained than empowered, it is more likely delusion. If there is relevance and meaning even if only symbolically to you NOW, then it is more than likely a Past Life Recall in some form. We refrain from saying “it might be your imagination,” simply because Imagination is a large context that includes both delusion and memory/perception. Most of your own memories within a lifetime are based on Imagination. Most valid past lives, though, as they become available and however vague, will have direct relevance to your life. They are recalled for a reason. Active pursuit of past lives can lead to delusion, only because most have expectations and scripts for what they must experience. [JNelson] I am interested in how The Book of the Law was channeled by Aleister Crowley. Would Michael care to explain who/what Crowley was channeling and possibly comment on Crowley's teachings and abilities as a whole? [Michael_Entity]: We will include our response in the transcript, but will conclude here, for tonight. [added response] The fragment known as Aleister Crowley (a Final Level Young Priest, Artisan Casting) was simply “channeling” his own Essence and Personality's ideals. Much of the interpretations are distortions from the original intentions, but his goal was ultimate empowerment of the individual, along with the encouragement that all was ultimately “safe”. Good night.
  15. June 21, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor Note: This content has been corrected based on Troy’s acknowledgment of errors on June 26. Although the report is for two weeks, Michael included info regarding a shift in August. [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as it stands for the weeks between June 24 through July 7. We will comment momentarily that the energy over the past couple of weeks has built and will peak this weekend, for most of you. We speak in a wider meaning of “you” at this point. This weekend will be a pivotal social experience for some of you. It is suggested that you take part in any events you have been invited to or are considering in any way. We do not wish to infuse any more meaning into this weekend than you, individually, would extract, but the energy is there for this to be a great change in your usual setting. If you are in some way involved in a larger gathering or social event than you have been for a while, we suggest it is in an indication that you are, indeed, considering more of your Needs being responsibly fulfilled. If you are not involved in any events of this nature, it may be simply an indication that you are open to examining the more social aspects of yourself, responsibly considering your personal Needs before exposing yourself to a larger circle. Regardless, the themes over the next couple of weeks are, indeed, about exposure and even further reaching out to other fragments in Agreement, Karma, or any other connection. Many of you older souls shy away from the more “silly” aspects of being “out there,” resigning from indulging in social activities and playfulness. It is not because you do not crave it, but that you feel as if “there are more important things to do.” Even if you believe you are a fairly playful and social person, as our channel here does, we still suggest that there is an opportunity this weekend, and over the next two weeks, to “let your hair down.” Your Chief Features will be highlighted, but only lightly, in relation to how you feel in groups, and as part of a group. August 4 marks your next Parallel Shift; this one focusing on arranging, rearranging, adding, and moving away from people in your life. Any relationships that are not fulfilling to you on at least two levels (out of 4; Instinctive, Emotional, Intellectual, Physical), will more than likely dissolve. Any relationships that have been introduced within this year that are “new” and are fulfilling at least two of your levels (and reciprocated, of course), will more than likely take a serious, permanent turn. We include the next ten days or so as a period of time in “finding” some of the “new” relationships, as well. This does not have any bearing on relationships outside of this context, as anyone met after August will have different contexts and “reasons” of their own. We do not mean to imply anything more or less about relationships outside of these parameters in the Energy Report; we are merely commenting on the nature of the energy at this time. During this Nexus, you will be DIVERGING Parallels, primarily, meaning you will be in a period of potentially obvious Choice Making. Your choices will determine the nature of any parallels created or sustained. We realize choice making occurs at all times, but during a Nexus, there are either MERGINGS or DIVERGENCES, primarily, and with Diverging, there is a heightened sense of needing to consider your choices. While during a MERGING, there is a sense of needing to sleep, wait, exhaustion, etc., as with the previous major Nexus. We will begin with your questions, either about the Energy Report, or otherwise. [MaryBV] Well, it is interesting that you brought this up, because I have been wondering about the nature of the TrueView list now that the membership has changed. Can you comment a bit on the purpose of the list now? [Michael_Entity] The “TrueView” list has several “purposes,” many of them personal to the participants. In and of itself, though, “TrueView” has as its “purpose” to house the elements of your Cadre and Energy Ring who are concerned with this Teaching as it can be applied in the lives of others. We do not mean “apply” in terms of recruiting or teaching it, yourselves, but rather, many of you are serious about how to translate the elements of your lives through the lens of this teaching, and utilize that insight as a means to help others. We have seen a common denominator among those of you actively participating with “TrueView,” in that you are “working on yourselves,” not as a means to only “better yourselves,” but as a means to be MORE for others. Each of you appear to be “touchstones” for many in your contact circle, and whether subtly or more openly shared, your perceptions are used as a means to better your relationships, and this extends into helping others with their own. If “TrueView” were to have a “Task,” it could be said to be “to comprehend and embody the importance of being Needed and Wanted.” [ludmila] This changing of relationships you refer to, as happened with people unsubscribing from this list, and still others recently joining, does this mean the agreements have been filled or just changed, or is it that those people who left resonate more to another channeler? [Michael_Entity] Many Agreements were abdicated, while still others simply resonate more to other speakers. Those that have abdicated will find other Agreements to fulfill; those who were left with the abdication will find their second strings of Agreements to fulfill. Agreements are malleable, as you know, and are not Karmic in their fulfillment or abdication, for the most part. Abdication though, does tend to bring out any Self-Karma for examination. The shift in the list you refer to certainly created a wave of self-examination and self-karma, mostly around acceptance and, as we said, the nature of being wanted and needed. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. Aside from what Troy would call “sucky channeling,” what are some reasons for discrepancies in overleaves channeled by different people? [Michael_Entity] There are three facets to a Personality, the Akashic Records (or True Overleaves), the Perceived Overleaves; and the Projected Overleaves. The True Overleaves are just that, the True Overleaves. They are sometimes not understood or agreed with because they do not “match” the behavior the fragment appears to be exuding, but they are the Overleaves, nonetheless. Due to Imprinting, a fragment can appear completely in opposition to his/her True Overleaves. No amount of valid channeling will bring awareness or validation to this fragment or those trying to comprehend them. Perceived Overleaves are the Overleaves of another fragment as they are filtered through your own or a channel’s; it is how YOU see Other. Channeling the Overleaves of a fragment as they are being perceived by those around them can be very freeing and enlightening. This, then, can bring understanding and acceptance for that aspect of them and/or free the Perceived fragment from the confines of the imprinting and bring about the True Overleaves. Projected Overleaves are those being attempted to as a presentation from the fragment in question. Regardless of the True Overleaves, this fragment may have decided on a way of being and behaving that is conducive to certain tasks or images. This does not change their True Overleaves, but certainly affects how they are perceived. Channeling for that fragment or about that fragment can bring understanding and acceptance about the nature of their Ego and self-perception. It can be said that the Perceived Overleaves can shed light on the nature of the fragment as they are expected to behave, while the Projected Overleaves shed light on how that fragment expects to be accepted. ALL versions of the Overleaves are “valid” in their own contexts. Many channels are not aware of these differences as Facets. So, aside from “sucky channeling,” there is this to consider. [Annette] Psychic Sylvia Brown has stated that the soul chooses three “exit points” for its lifetime – possible “outs” in case life isn’t working out and fragment chooses to return, or when fragment feels work is done. Can Michael comment on this? [Michael_Entity] We have seen the average as being 5 Exit Points. We concur other than that minor point. [Liiona24] During last report on Needs, the statement was made that we should watch our reactions and that those indicated where we needed to be doing more for ourselves, if I interpreted correctly. However, some needs appear to be “other” oriented such as Exchange. How is this resolved then, how does one meet a need for “exchange” unilaterally, for example? [Michael_Entity] ALL Needs are only “Other-Oriented” in that they do require a certain circuitry for their fulfillment. What we mean in terms of these Needs as being the individual’s responsibility to fulfill, for instance: if you believe there is no fulfilling Exchanges in your life, then you would seek out more appropriate “circuits.” If you are trying to have a meaningful, deep, emotionally/intellectually/physically satisfying Exchange in a relationship that is not creating a circuit, then it may be appropriate to lose the expectations of that being your source. Exchange is not just about giving something to someone else, but that you are having True Communication on some level. Exchange can be satisfied even in the realms of financial investments, so it is not simply about Other. Their is no way to “unilaterally” be concerned with the Needs of Others, except in terms of what you feel you are comfortable in offering. You will all find your sources and matches in some way. [JNelson] What emotions are goosebumps and the “chills” a physical manifestation of, not counting responses to temperature? Or intellectual manifestations of, for that matter. [Michael_Entity] This could be called “Instinctive Realization.” It is the result of the Lower Centers responding/reacting simultaneously as PARTS of the Instinctive Center. This experience is always linked to “realization” on a level that bypasses all of the Lower Centers, but creates a release in them as Parts in the Instinctive Center. When this occurs, it is safe to say that the very base part of you has resonated to something rooted in fear or desire. Fear may be obvious, but when the realization is in desire, as it is meant here, is in the connection made on a level wherein you had no previous realization that you were “expecting” something of that nature. [ClaireN] Would Michael please comment on the function of the pineal gland and any disorders that it may cause? [Michael_Entity] The Pineal Gland is related to what might be considered your Higher Emotional Center, 6th Chakra, or “Third Eye.” We have seen its function directly related to dreaming, astral perception, channeling, imagination, and true perception/love. It is highly affected by the amount of sunlight, or any light for that matter, that is taken in through the sense of sight, and as the light permeates the forehead. Those who have a block or “disorder” in this gland can tend to have fertility problems, menstruation problems, and inability to have imagination of an optimistic nature, inability to recall dreams, may have depression and sleep disorders. One of the major contributors to the suppression of this gland’s ability to function properly is in the use of what is called “microwaves.” Food prepared in this fashion tends to carry within it “vortexes” of energy that, when integrated over a short period time, can lead to lack of motivation and lack of clarity for a future. The “vortexes” remain in the body, particularly affecting the Pineal, for an average of 7 years. We do not have a term through this channel to more adequately describe that which is transferred through the act of microwaving, but this will do. The “vortexes” collect in the center of the food prepared, in a size approximately equal to a golf ball. Larger ovens preparing larger foods can create collections in sizes up to a tennis ball. Those who are overexposed or underexposed to sunlight can develop a disorder of this gland. Those who are overexposed to what is called Fluorescent lights are susceptible to this, as well. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  16. September 21, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We understand you will be in “open floor” format again tonight. We will move immediately into Questions then. [Clavis] Could Michael recommend any power or energy spot in Germany to visit during my trip there? It could include Austria, too. [Michael_Entity] We have no basis with which to “recommend,” as far as “energy spots” or “power spots” in what is known as Germany. We can either highlight a few of the areas, or comment on areas where you may already be planning to visit. Most will find their “spots” quite easily on their own. [Clavis] Michael mentioned “pressure points” of Earth before, using Egypt as one example. Is there any such spots in Germany or Austria? [Michael_Entity] Each of our channels resonate with and define parameters differently for what they call “points” or “spots.” The variations are not contradictions, but rather, “layers.” Each Layer is based on a layer of Truth. Most “power spots” are based on Personal Truths. The system as a whole for defining the “maps” of energy that comprise the Earth's energies requires collaboration, but it is a definite system. If you'd like to have an example of what might be a “personal power spot,” something that might resonate with you and trigger personal transformation, then on that basis we suggest the Harz Mountains. [Dewliet] Lately, certain music has made me ache with inexplicable longing. I get the feeling music might be a “language” for a fragment's communication with Essence. Could Michael comment on what draws individuals to certain types of music? [Michael_Entity] This particular Universe is built from and based on Music and Math. Everything can be reduced to either. Geometrically, the Universe can be reduced to Circles and Triangles. The resolution or common denominator for each set is the Spiral. Music then is multidimensional in its effect. All nonphysical matter, from the Astral and beyond, is translated into shapes and tones. When these multidimensional means of translation and communication are used while Physical, there is a “transcendence” in many cases to a level of “pure” nonphysical, paranormal connection. Music is in particular the language of the Astral Plane and the Messianic Planes. While extant on the Physical Plane, while Essence resides Astrally, Music then is a direct path to your Source. It is also a means to link directly to other Essences. What draws a fragment to a certain type of music is usually linked to their Centering and Role. Listening to it is the only means for its impact. Creating it is a different context altogether. We will also add that two other factors in determining the draw to certain types of music is the predominance of your Overleaves as they are arranged on the Axis (more Action, or more Expression, etc.). And we add that “timing” and events in a life will create a draw for what is most “needed” appropriately. [Dewliet] So, are you implying then, that the music most deeply touching me is that which brings me closest to Essence? [Michael_Entity] Yes. But note that it may also be a path for direct contact with other Essences. This is a large topic and we may continue with the delineation of each Axis, or move to the next question. [Dewliet] Thank you, Michael! Please take the next question. [Anne49] I would like to know why during the live channeling session in NYC some of us blanked out. I have very little recollection of what took place, and do not remember being anywhere else. [Michael_Entity] Many of you are inconvenienced by the body as a sensory unit as a whole. Those of you we sense “blanked out” were in a moment wherein you felt “permission” to do so. There was a common element of great amounts of input for each of those who did “blank out.” While in our “presence” and while in the moment of your Cadre/Entity unions, having to have full-body attention was simply pointless and moot to you. After a great deal of input over the week previously, combined with the sense of permission and safety, combined with the hypnotic elements of the room, voices, and energy, it is not surprising. “Where” you were was literally “nowhere.” At least as we see it. This was the “point.” This allowed assimilation, but with that amount of assimilation in a condensed amount of space/time, the “pressure” most likely had an impact physically. We believe you mentioned to Troy the pressure of your “headache.” This happens to many who attend a channeling in person, or even online “live.” A great deal of exchange is occurring not only “horizontally,” but “vertically.” [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people's auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy's aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally? [Michael_Entity] The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person's Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen. A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here. In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy's Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed was the release of minor beliefs from Troy's Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these were released. As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side. [Leela] I've been wondering recently if there is particular karma that Jews as a group have carried over the millennia. Is there any truth to this perception? [Michael_Entity] Races/religious groups can have Karma that is dealt with collectively over millennia, yes. We see those who choose the context of lifetimes as a Jew as participating more in terms of religious imprinting as a means to explore common themes. There is no particular Karma for Jews that we can see being valid as a whole, but the draw to be born as part of this group in any form is highly appealing to Mature Souls seeking intense lessons around family and imprinting. Races and religions create CONTEXTS more than they do Karma. For instance, the race known as Black or African/American is now a powerful draw for newly Young Souls. [Momhawk] Hello Michael: What's up with this ‘peeper’ guy? Are my ‘impressions’ so far, accurate? Does it look like he will ‘return’ again HERE, or not at this time? Any further recommendations as to how to best handle this situation? Is it safe to remain here in my home, or would it just be better to leave for a while over the upcoming weekend. I'm REALLY tired from dealing with all of this at this point. [Michael_Entity] This is your Karma. You will be compelled to complete it. Whether you leave or not, there is a momentum that will allow a balance. Your “impressions” are accurate enough to console you, but they are of little use. We do not speak ominously, simply as we see the situation. Your “best” method of handling this situation is to trust your impulses. They are cues to your Karmic path. [KellyGirl] I would like to know about my next Mate agreement that will happen, particularly when, where, who, and the agreement itself. [Michael_Entity] You have two Mate Agreements: A Sage and a Server, both male. We cannot guarantee that these “will happen” as they are Agreements, and are not bound by anything. We do see they are still intact. The Server's agreement was for August. The delay is not an impact. The Sage is in Agreement to meet you in November. The Server is a Healer in your Support Circle and will most likely, if brought in, be a pivotal but temporary contact. His impact will inspire you, but attachment is more than likely not the intent. The Sage is more “serious” and probable as a long-term exploration. You enjoy Sages. This fragment is involved with children and Law. The ‘where’ of the agreement with the Sage is not determined, though we do see an inclination toward meeting in a holiday gathering. [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use means that have become identified as a means to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication. [Clavis] Could Michael tell me if I have chosen different careers in any parallel selves, and if I can tap into my talents in my other selves? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course you have chosen various careers in parallel universes. That is why they are not “this” parallel. It is possible to “tap” the talents of other Parallel personalities. This can be done through simple visualization and imagination. Using your imagination, “peek” in on what you could imagine as having been alternative routes “you” followed. These are almost always accurate and real. If you can imagine it, it has most likely found a place in some parallel. Once you have “locked on” to a parallel, “observe” yourself there. Look at what “you” are doing in your general, everyday life. If that is a parallel with talents you'd like to implement “here,” or if it has a prosperity level that you'd like to impress “here,” then simply notice what you are wearing, what you do as you come home, notice how you are wearing your hair, how you eat, anything that is a common, obvious behaviour that is “different” from “you here.” For example, if in that parallel you always come home and place your keys in a specific place, note that. Note anything that can be easily duplicated “here,” but is different enough to symbolically link you to that parallel. Then simply begin implementing that small change. The impact can become quite phenomenal and transformative. A bleedthrough will begin, impulses and behavior may begin to change, etc. It can be quite disconcerting, but if you are consciously choosing this experiment, it can be maneuvered through with little stress. [Clavis] Would Michael care to name a few of the different careers? [Michael_Entity] We are not in a forum that supports an assessment of your parallels tonight, JJ, but your own imagination can be used as effectively. [ksh] When is my next mate agreement? [Michael_Entity] You have Agreements with a Scholar in April of 2001. This is a long-term Mate Agreement with a movement in process in 5 year cycles. This fragment is male, travels to the US frequently and intends to live there eventually. It appears the agreement is to be fulfilled through meeting in a work environment or job-related pursuit. The meeting will most likely occur previous to the month of the Agreement's implementation. You can validate when you meet this Scholar when you are informed that his brother lives in the US and the fragment's mother is deceased. These are two, more obvious validating factors. Good Night.
  17. July 1, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Platforms and Parallels [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We will delve into the Energy “forecast” first, then move into general discussions if there is time. We want to first point out that the past 12 days and the next 5 to 7 days is a pivotal window for realigning fragments that are in your space, your circle of support. This seems to be an adjustment period for “keeping” what is wanted, and “releasing” what is not, on an Essence Level AND Personality level before the Community Parallel Shift on the 19th. This means that work, people, and most of what is taking your attention has come under high scrutiny to determine what is ‘superficial’ and what might be termed your “True Potential”, or your future in more mundane terms. This evaluation happens in more obvious ways when the Parallel shifts take place in wider circles than just the Individual levels. The individual parallel shifts occur and primarily change your perceptions of self; the Community Shifts occur and change perceptions of self in relation to environment. Global Shifts occur and change sentience in relation to itself/Tao. We will discuss more about the Global Shifts as they occur, the next being in December of this year. This next shift, occurring in the Community Level, will primarily affect you and those with which you share Agreements or Karma for external work. All who are within the circle of support you have identified (by your terms, not necessarily ours) will be moving as a “group” through this shift. This is why it seems that some things are collapsing irrevocably while other things are opening as opportunities. Most things will just seem more a blur for now. Things and people who will not be moving with you will simply move along other creative paths, while those things and people who are highlighted as your “future” will remain or be added/merged. Before we continue, are there any questions about the nature of Parallels and shifts? [bn] I’m not sure what you mean by Parallels… [Michael_Entity] We will define: As Essence creates a life, it does not want to be limited in any way nor does it want to eliminate its creation, the Personality. The Tao has set up a convenient method for accommodating this. As the life unfolds, there are points in which Essence and Personality agree and do not agree, or where the creativity of the Personality is considered a benefit to the knowledge of Essence, or where Personality rejects Essence outright. In addition to these variables there is also the “original plan” that must be fulfilled by Essence in some way. To handle these fluctuations and creativity, “parallel realities” are created to allow all versions of the life to be fulfilled. ALL ideas of Essence and Personality are explored IN SOME WAY. Parallel realities are simply different levels of frequency within the same space. [bn] So, a parallel shift refers to the idea that the energies will be shifting in all parallel existences? [Michael_Entity] ALL decisions made add to the bank of possibilities as the Personality experiences a life and ALL major choices create a “spin off” reality to accommodate “both” (or more) choices. No choice is left behind. This all being said, a Parallel Shift is when a DIVERGENCE or a CONVERGENCE is happening between 2 or more parallels. [G5] Ah, so my neighbor can experience the end of the world, and I can live on in peaceful solitude in a different parallel? [Michael_Entity] A DIVERGENCE is the “spinning off” of a reality, while a CONVERGENCE is the “merging” of realities that have become so similar there is no longer a need to sustain “both” (or more). [la] Which one is happening on the 19th? [Michael_Entity] In answer to the question about the neighbor scenario, it is doubtful you would even share a reality with someone who would choose this experience if you were not included. The 19th is the primary window, though the shift will last from the 17th through the 29th. It does not occur “simultaneously” for everyone involved. Both forms of shifting are occurring for all. Usually it is one or the other, but this year has proven to be a particularly exciting year for Essence and the prospects for the new millennium are high. [A2] Can one access these different frequencies or parallels from one's own consciousness at any time? [Michael_Entity] Yes, in fact you do. There are “bleed throughs” at many points in your days. This is where many of you turn for more creativity and ideas, where many of you turn for exploring probable futures (as in ‘what should I do next?”). In some parallel you may have already explored a similar path, therefore you access it for input. “Déjà Vu” can be result of this exploration. For a more practical and conscious use, accessing parallels can be a tool for creating variations in your “present parallel” by drawing from experiences that have already become a part of your Essence in another parallel. For instance, you may be interested in “creating more space”, as in a new home or location. You can easily “look in” on a parallel simply by imagining what that “version” of you is doing in THAT parallel with THAT experience you are seeking “here”. Through visualization, observe a simple idiosyncrasy in you that is from that parallel. Something that you DO NOT do already, such as the way “you” wear “your” hair in that reality, or where you place your keys when you return home, or what activities you enjoy, etc. something easily accessible. This will create a bleedthrough, opening up flows of energy from the already-established creation in the other parallel, for manifestation in “your” present parallel. More on this later, if asked. The use of the imagination for this exercise, by the way, may prove uncomfortable as you seem to be fantasizing. We remind you though that your imagination is the highest frequency you own as a human and its benefits and capabilities are too easily dismissed as fanciful when in fact Imagination is one of your primary sources of power as Personality. [Le] Does the upcoming shift give us an opportunity to move into another reality then? [Michael_Entity] Yes,… this does not mean it will suddenly be unfamiliar, but that a new set of parameters for you and your circles of support will unfold. For some this will be drastic, for others, gradual. For all, it will be chaotic and beautiful. What you will see are new things coming in and old things leaving within a very short period of time and a new focus and level of intention is felt. For all of you here, this shift seems to be centered on “your self as resources”. We have mentioned throughout this year that your “niches” will be more conscious, more resolved and clarified. This is just another step. We want to make it clear that these shifts are not unusual. You have passed through many within your lifetime. [Jn] Will there be paranormal (and/or physical) phenomena during the shifts? [Michael_Entity] That will depend on your particular circle of support and your perceptions as Personality. Some of you may certainly “see” some strange occurrences. It is true that this time period is a time of a heightened “psychic sensitivity”, but even more emotional sensitivity. ALL that you are (as Personality, as Sub-Personality, as Essence) comes into alignment for a short while, allowing choices to be made with some amount of clarity of intention for the next 6 months or so. The alignment is “local” to “your” parallel and relative to your sense of Essence presently. This allows all levels to evaluate, create, and apply energy for the life. This can tend to open you to wonderful or frightening visions and experiences. In terms of physical phenomenon, you may notice things that “were not there” before seeming to appear from nowhere. Other experiences may find something previously familiar, gone, such as streets and buildings and landmarks. This is usually dismissed as confusion since the transition is so smooth, but for those who are more awake to this experience of shifting, you can experiment with trusting and validating that, in fact, some physical cosmetics of your environment have shifted too. This is especially true when it is a Global Shift. [S1] Physical Cosmetics have shifted too? In countries or states? [Michael_Entity] In realities. We do not mean a continent will appear or disappear (although this has occurred too), but the details environments do certainly shift. This is due to the “merging” of realities. Though MOST of two (or more) realities have become or remained identical while parallel and separate, certain details are not identical. When the realities merge, certain details submerge while others emerge. This means the paint on the house down the street that used to be white, now has a purple tinge, or that your PIN # may be one digit off even after years of use as the number you “remember”. These things do not disrupt the flow of the merging and for the most part are not even noticed with any significance. The older the soul, the more these become natural to see. As you learn to identify these, it can be amusing for the Essence and Personality. [Le] Will this shift create any new power centers, particularly on the East Coast of the U.S.? [Michael_Entity] They will not necessarily be “new”, but there is more potential for some to become more emphasized than others. “New” centers do occur in Global Shifts many times, but not usually in Community Shifts or Individual Shifts. [Le] Which centers may become more emphasized? [Michael_Entity] Through our perceptions, the drop from emphasis in the Southeast could soon shift to more emphasis and become more manageable and external, rather than internal and contemplative as it has been for the past several years. Some potential storms this year could bring that shift. These shifts will be felt more locally than be seen in larger terms, at least for now. When we say “Southeast” we are referring to the Carolinas, primarily. There is also something potential in the extreme Northeast, maybe in Maine. We can be more accurate after the shift. [la] We’re going to Greece on the 19th and wonder what implications there are for me & John with the shifts, etc. [Michael_Entity] The effects of your shift will be seen more softly and without the edge that some might experience. This trip allows you to be focused in a way that Personality won’t find so stressful. This will also give you the ability to “bring back” to your environment some physical items that seem to be important for your shift. This means these items carry energy conducive for your shift and will facilitate it. We trust you will find what Essence guides you to find. This does not mean there may not be turbulence for you as you go through your shift, but that there might have been more if you were not in a different physical space when it occurred. [bn] How will the new platforms be affected due to the shifting? [Michael_Entity] Actually the major shift in platforms is the initiator of the Shifts this year and have created the unusually frenetic quality. It is more that the Platforms are affecting your Parallels. The platforms, after being settled upon, become your clarifying factor. Your parallel creations will more likely be shaped around various manifestations of your Platforms. In fact, your Platforms are the only constant throughout all parallels, at least in terms of choice. [Le] Has everyone here selected new ones? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course.
  18. Michael Speaks -- June 12, 2011 Open Floor Questions and Answers Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] We will respond now to the question from Nicholas. [NicholasBabylove] what is the "easiest" way we older souls can create/allow more money into our lives? Is the lack of money even though we have tons of intelligence/talents/skills just something we choose to deal with...and we tend to leave it at that? I know it's different for each of us, but I'd like some kind of suggestion that might touch on all oldies generally... or, the oldie students... [MEntity] The concept of having to funnel one's talents and skills into something that can be monetarily valuable is not complicated or difficult for the older soul to implement, but when those talents and skills must conform to a younger paradigm, it can be complicated and difficult. The older soul would benefit from fully embracing whatever older soul talents and skills he or she may have, and then complementing that with younger soul packaging. The gift inside is what matters, if you will, but packaging is important in the current paradigm. Some of the most useless and detrimental products and services are eagerly purchased in the current paradigm, due to packaging. So our first suggestion is to give great priority to "packaging," as the talents and skills are natural, and while they require their own kind of nurturing, it is the packaging that is often neglected. This neglect of packaging is because the older the soul grows, the more integrity the Personalities tend to have. And for the older soul, the skew between "Presentation" and "Content" can seem great, when it comes to catering to a younger paradigm. But it is key. To sanctimoniously neglect your younger soul skills for packaging and presentation would be similar to a teacher in grade school refusing to "talk down" to her students. It does not have to mean a degradation of content, nor a skew away from integrity, but a matter of translation. We do not speak to you in a way that we speak to each other, for instance. We must package our teaching in a way that allows you to grow with what we share. And so it is for the older soul to realize: that what you have to give, to share, to use for profit or nourishment, must be translated through a medium that can allow for reception. After Packaging would be Paralleling, if you will. By this we mean that you will find your niche receivers that have no need for a translation of what you have to give, and this can be done alongside the packaging, so that both facets of you are fulfilled. One does not have to replace the other. The third consideration is Practicality. You must feed and clothe yourself along the way toward gaining your footing with what you truly prefer to use as your means of income. Working the jobs that you do not like would do well to be seen as simply a part of the dynamic ways that you provide love for yourself and your life. Again, one does not have to replace the other. It is okay to be mundane. The lack of money in the older souls' lives is not a matter of any lessons needing to be learned, but a result of choices that prefer minimalism over the demands of complexity. Most older souls have learned how to work the system, so to speak, of the Physical Plane in a way that never leaves them in true danger, but allows them to "get by" as they tend to more important experiential matters. Many older souls would "trade the world" for the intimacy, friendship, love, honesty, kindness, peace, etc that life offers. Older souls can be wealthy, and often quite easily, but those factors mentioned above would probably need to be considered more seriously, and then the final concern: letting people do with your talents and skills what they will. For instance, the packaging of some old soul concepts, such as "The Secret," gained great notoriety and profit, but we could say that most gained nothing from the information. Not because the information was invalid, though it was severely compromised, but because people will do with what you offer what they will. We must have the same concept intact for us to share with you: we would say that only 25% of our active students actually "hear" us in a way that is truly meaningful, and even fewer apply the teachings in a way that proves meaningful results. But this cannot be a reason for us not to share. True sharing, whether with a price or for "free," is never without profit. So our sharing with you our teaching is as much for US, as it is for you; this means whatever you do with what we share, we still gain. And so it is with your talents and skills: you would want to share those with the intent of True Sharing, in that you own the vital element that is the pleasure you gain from it. True Sharing is mutually beneficial. However, the only one in the equation of sharing that you have control over is you, and so to set the standard for sharing to be that you actually enjoy it, then the sharing is True. [Bobby2] From your perspective, what exactly was the "Ark of the Covenant" as mentioned in our Old Testament? Was it some piece of advanced technology? If so, what were its capabilities? Does it still exist? [MEntity] We think that this is a reference to an energy source that was not fully understood by most, and because of its rather dangerous effects upon those in proximity, it was guarded quite well. We would not call it "advanced" technology, though from the current understanding of Earth history, it would seem so. [Bobby2] Was it nuclear? [MEntity] We do not think it still exists, as it was either an energy source that collapsed and dissipated over time, or was returned to the non-terrestrials who originally offered it. Its capabilities were equivalent to nuclear energy, but without the concern that nuclear energy presents in terms of toxic wastes and heats. However, a kind of radiation was a concern to those within proximity. [Oscar] Hey Mikeys =) I would like to know if the Universe is finite or infinite. And if it's finite, what is beyond it(s borders)? And beyond the borders of that, etc. [MEntity] We are still exploring this question, ourselves, but what we know is: from "within" a universe, it is infinite in terms of experiences and perceptions, much the way one might experience the inside of a mirrored sphere; that universes must be finite beyond experiences and perceptions that we can comprehend, because we know there are completely separate universes "stacked" around our own; that while there is a definitive, Physical, or densest, component to the universe, the degree to which it grows finer is still unknown to us; that, so far, we can compare the universe to the same spectrum that makes up any single consciousness: while there are physical counterparts, the emotional and intellectual dynamics that are in place to generate those physical counterparts are very difficult to quantify, and therefore, so are the borders of a universe, as we also do not know how to show the edges of a thought or an emotion. To be more direct: we think the universe is finite, but exists within an infinity. Or put another way: what we know of as "the universe," even in our delineation of all of its layers and planes, is but a counterpart of an even greater whole that we have yet to comprehend. [Martha] At Claymont, JP said something about the first 100 cadres or entities, and the last 100, would stay here for the duration of our species’ incarnations. Not every single fragment or entity within each 100, but that the first and last 100 had committed to staying around. Do you agree? And if so can you elaborate on it? [MEntity] We would agree. Though this does not mean a limitation to the incarnational process of the Physical Plane, but includes all lower planes. Those of us from "the beginning" and "the end" of the count for Sentience to this Design will be supporting, teaching, and even incarnating "somewhere" within the Physical, Astral, or Causal Planes. We will be "here" even as the last of Human Sentience completes its last life. [Brian_W] In a previous time it was mentioned that "Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions." Could you please comment on how we may better use and understand our own imaginations and dreams, differentiate them from delusion, and use them to create new options for choices in this world / parallel? [MEntity] The key to the refinement and use of Imagination as a valid resource for creating new options and choices is through the process of Validation. Imagination will include a spectrum from the greatest potential to the greatest delusion. Validation is the process of measuring a new feeling, thought, or action against an established feeling, thought, or action. Internal Validation is vital for helping one to build his or her Personal Philosophies (truths), Relationships (loves), and Health (energy). External Validation is vital for helping one to share his or her Personal Truths, Relationships, and Health/Energy. True Validation is when both the Inner and Outer Validations coincide. Because Imagination is unlimited, the use of it can be a wonderful and dangerous process. We will say that as long as your Imagination must be kept to yourself in order to be "true," then it is probably leaning toward Delusion, and away from Potential. We will say that as long as the majority of feedback from your outer world is contradictory to your Imagination, then it is, at least, still potential, which includes potentially delusional. One can see why this can be "tricky," as one fragment full of potential may have surrounded itself with fragments who challenge the Imagination, in general, and this can lead to questioning or rejecting one's Imagination, while another fragment might be completely delusional and supported by many. However, we can say that the more one finds his or her footing in validating the Imagination, both internally and externally, the more one moves away from delusion. We will say that a safe equation might be that one who has not validated the potential of the Imagination within, will either find oneself surrounded by rejection of the potential, or support for the delusional. We must conclude our time through Troy here.
  19. MICHAEL SPEAKS LIVE CHAT Open Floor December 22, 2013 Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] We will begin with Royce, then. [royce] Hi michael, I have a question concerning OBJECTIVE art ( as stated by gurdjieff and OSHO) vs. Subjective art. What is your description of the differences between them and what centers are utilized? [MEntity] In terms that differentiate the arts as Subjective versus Objective, one is a function of an individual's subconsciousness, various layers of processes, including those that tap into collective consciousness, yet all of which are interpretative and rather metaphorical. Whereas the Objective is utterly its own, standing as itself, with or without meaning, metaphor, and relevance. When the Subjective is referred to as "soulless," it was not intended to mean "less than," but more to represent the perspective of Personality, the temporal. That art which is Objective is of Essence, or at least, of the Personality that is awake. Subjective art represents something. Objective art represents itself. Most of what passes as "art" is not of Essence, is "soulless," if you will. It is of Personality, and that is about as derogatory as saying that a single lifetime is the result of the choices of Personality, not necessarily those of the soul. All of the Lower Centers are involved when Subjective Art is created. ALL of the Centers are involved when Objective Art is created. [EricM] There's recently been an impromptu discussion on the limited remaining resources of fossil fuels (oil, gas, coal, etc) and what the slow decline in their availability will mean to our civilization. Because our civilization has many of its roots in such fuels, the decline of their availability, and the slow response to this decline, seems to be painting a difficult and relatively grim picture of the future. Can you provide some brief ideas of the future probabilities shaping up around this issue, say within the next 50-100 years, and how society as we know it will be affected? [MEntity] The shift toward the shocking reality of declining fuels is within 5 years. It is not something that can be put off or ignored for much longer. Most alternatives that are in place today are not viable for replacing the scale that depends upon the current resources. It is not a grim reality ahead for most probabilities that we can see, but a definite jolt to most modern societies. The better-case probabilities have leaps in technology, waste management, and the processes that depend upon the current fuels. If the replacement of those fuels are depended upon, then the probabilities are fairly grim, as you put it, but for most, there are innovations in HOW those fuels are used that makes the difference. The capacity for greater storage and extension the life of energy for a number of dependent technologies makes a major impact on the time left for generating alternatives to the fuels that must, eventually, be moved away from. In the process of advancing how energy is stored and used, the alternatives then begin to have far more impact, instead of simply being minor contributors to wasteful and inefficient processes now being used for a dominant, declining resource of energy. [Maureen] Was Nelson Mandela (Warrior-cast Server, Level 6 Old) a Magnetic Server, a Transcendent Old Server (not Transcendental), or “something” else? [MEntity] We do not know what the "something else" might be, but he was the former, yes. [Maureen] a Magnetic Server? [MEntity] Does that answer your question? [Maureen] Yes it does. Thanks Michael [MikeClev] I have a question about young kids' experience of life. I have read that kids have imaginary friends (my eldest does) and that some may even remember and describe past lives, and that this fades as they grow up. Sometimes they may tell us about things they see that we can't see. What are kids really experiencing? Is it all about getting parents' attention? [MEntity] It cannot be said that imaginary friends are all about getting parents' attention, though it can be for some, of course. In that case, there tends to be behavior issues that accompany the imagination that speak to the needs of the child and what is of necessity to address. Simply sharing with excitement one's imaginary friend is not an indication of anything other than that excitement to share. For most children, the imaginary friends are a mix of the guides and one's own Essence. This can bring up access to Personalities in the history of the Essence, which would most likely be described as scenarios, not necessarily as a personality. The imagination comes fully intact for most fragments as children, as this is how the Essence and guides work over time to bond with the body, and this open access can show up in ways that are almost literal in the sense of "invisible friends," to simply being a generated creation that represents any number of things relative to the psyche. Think of children as having one foot in the Astral Plane at all times, so the blur between what is "real" (read: tangible, Physical) versus "imagination" (read: intangible, literal or symbolic) is quite wide. [GeraldineB] Michael, yesterday we received the seven elements that prompted our learning in the Sage year of 2013. Could we have the 7 elements for the upcoming Year of the Priest, 2014? [MEntity] How willing were you to share in the enthusiasm that is expressed and exhibited by others? What responsibility did you take for how you reflect the best of others back to them? What responsibility did you take for what you saw reflected about yourself in others? How willing were you to ask for help? How willing were you to see that another may need help, even if not asked? How much freedom did you allow for others to evolve at their own pace, regardless of your contributions from your own position in your own evolution? How much intimacy did you allow in your life, even with your wounds, your shame? How willing were you to allow the wounding and shame of others into your life that is not your own? (counting as one element here) We may elaborate upon these, of course, but these are fair for guiding one through the higher paths of 2014. [GeraldineB] Thank you -- next Dec we might have some good answers for these :) [ViP1] hello Michael. How would you describe the meaning of the term "conscience", and its applicability (or not) in navigating life? [MEntity] We might equate the term Conscience (as opposed to consciousness) to the sense of responsibility one evolves over lifetimes. The greater the conscience, the greater one owns his or her part in the equation of responsibility. This begins with one's self, of course, starting with the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies, and then extending into the responsibilities one would have for the impact of one's choices and actions on others. This sense of responsibility, or Conscience, then would expand to recognize that one's choices and actions have consequences that may never be seen, but would still exist, such as they might be seen on the environment, on exploited and abused animals and humans, on the future, and even on Essence. The Older Souls would tend to find Conscience to be the equivalent of Responsibility AND Compassion, then. The evolution of one's Conscience is the evolution of one's move from Anatomic to Atomic. Navigating the life then moves away from self-preservation, fear, and survival, and toward self-awareness, love, and evolution. There are 7 circles of Conscience that one expands through, and we will share that delineation in another gathering. [Janet] Some time ago you spoke about the number 12 in relation to creation and merging of parallels and energy rings and even universes. You mentioned “universes stacked in groups of 12 that collapse and expand into one another to rotate out themes”. Someone asked me a question about Grand Cycles the other day and it made me wonder: what's the relation between Grand Cycles and universes? Do there tend to be multiple (or perhaps all) Grand Cycles for a spark within a single universe or are universes created to serve the themes proposed for new Grand Cycles? If a simplistic answer can't be easily obtained within 15 minutes, it's okay to pass on this question and I'll follow up at some future time. [MEntity] Grand Cycles of an Essence are specific to a Universe. All that you know of as "you" is of one Universe, even as it is full of parallels, layers, bubbles, and holes, if you will. A different Universe (in terms being used for this conversation) may have very different patterns and cycles that would be unrecognizable or impossible to convey to the consciousness that is of this Universe. This even goes for the idea of how Universes are stacked. From "this" Universe, they are stacked in blocks of 12, but from a different Universe within that 12, the description may be very different in how it is explained. So the number of Grand Cycles "you" may have noted as part of your exploration of Essence is relative to "this" Universe. [Bobby] It's been about 2.5 years since I asked about Fukushima. Would you be able to give us an update as far as how you see things and perhaps a most likely probability that we could chew on? [MEntity] The most likely probability that we can see is that the effects of this event contribute to a great wave of global unity of effort toward responsibility for the well-being of the species and the planet. There have been waves before, of course, and this will be another. Within the next 5 years, the impact will have most likely have come to rather devastating obviousness, and it will likely draw together some great minds for how to move forward. [Bobby] um, how devastating? [MEntity] We are using that term to describe the response to the effects on foods, water supplies, and local genetics. [Martha] You gave VIP some detailed information recently on the Lunar body type. I’d like the same kind of information on the Venusian body type. time permitting :) [MEntity] That is a response we must put off in consideration of our channel, but we can always be asked again. [Martha] OK, no problem! [MEntity] Good evening to each of you, then. We will conclude here for now.
  20. Ask Michael Live Chat September 7, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley GeraldineB: We are going to be rigid on time constraints, trying to keep each person's session to a maximum of 15 min. I will be notifying Mikey at the 10 min mark. I would recommend that EVERYONE add as a caveat to the beginning of their Q -- Keeping this short enough for this format, blah blah blah CocteauBoy: If you guys see a great question that you wouldn't mind taking up more time than usual, please feel free to quickly chime in that you wouldn't mind. I'll ask michael to note for anyone if the question would require a long response. 12:27 DianeHB: Hello Michael. May we have a fuller description of the Venusian Body Type Nature? MEntity: We are not clear as to what to compare for a "fuller description," but we can expand on this subject for you to compare to what you wish. DianeHB: Yes, just expand on the subject. :) MEntity: The Venusian Nature is one that invites and attracts affection. It is of the more sensual of body types, and depends greatly upon physical contact for its sense of presence. The Nature can tend to be quite charming, warm, and even if the person is not consciously comfortable with touch, this Nature will likely invite it. Most fragments tend to feel quite immediately comfortable with MEntity: Venusian Body Types, barring other factors that might override that Nature. MEntity: This Nature struggles between its inclination to be so inviting and accepting, but is one of the harshest in its struggle for accepting itself. MEntity: One of the reasons this Nature is so inviting, warm, and affectionate is because of this. MEntity: In much the same way that the funniest people can also be of the saddest, so can the most attractive and inviting of people be the loneliest. MEntity: Their inclination to allow attraction (which is not exclusive to physical attraction, but all or any level of attraction) is because the Venusian Nature learns to know that beauty is not superficial or temporary, and is often relative. MEntity: Ironically, as their Nature allows them to recognize beauty in many people and things, they can have a very difficult time recognizing this in themselves. DianeHB: (yearns to know?) MEntity: And so this nature is two-fold in that its expression of inclusion and acceptance is a way to show others that they are beautiful, while also generating this experience of inclusion and acceptance from others toward themselves so that it can be a mutual experience. MEntity: Of course, this can be an entire topic in itself. We responded as best we could with no parameter or direction. There is plenty more to say. 12:48:19 PM tkmppi: In Indian astrology a person's "chart" may influence another person: to take a random example, one of the indications of a fallen Moon in the 11th house is that "his eldest sibling leads a tedious life or dies early." On the other hand there are antidotes for planetary afflictions, in this case, chanting the Moon mantra 11 000 times, or wearing a pearl. Would the elder sibling's life become less tedious etc., if his/her younger sibling wears a pearl or chants mantras? MEntity: Tuija, we have never seen that the wearing of a pearl would by proxy alleviate the challenges of another person, unless the other person was somehow challenged by the weight of carrying that pearl in the first place, of course. If it were only that easy to help another. We can say that if the pearl is somehow a reminder to be of help to the other person, then the symbol can be effective. MEntity: Chanting is a powerful means of transformation and effective change for the self, but has little effect on overriding the challenges that another person may have, unless, again, the changes in yourself are actively used to help another. MEntity: There is no validity to removing or adding to another person's life any pain or pleasure using only a symbol or chant. MEntity: Does this answer your question? tkmppi: Yes, that's what I've thought 01:00:48 PM BrianW: Could you please describe the alternate timeline in the 1980s which resulted in nuclear war. Specifically, what was different in those timeline that did not occur in this timeline, what month / year did the war go nuclear, what areas were affected, survived or were unaffected, and what has since recovered, and to what degree? MEntity: The most important difference was that the mistake was not caught in that timeline around November of 1983. The attacks came between Russia and the United States due to confusions regarding poor communication of simulated events. Most of the Eastern United States was decimated, with expansion of attacks ranging between all of the U.S. and Russia, and with fallout affecting all of the planet. MEntity: Australia was one of the few places unaffected, and came to be a refuge for many from Asia, while South America came to be refuge for many from Africa, North America, and Europe. MEntity: Alaska came to be refuge for many from Western United States, as well. MEntity: Migration back to homelands have begun for those who have survived or are of later generations of survivors. MEntity: Because this was eventually recognized as a mistake, great strides have been made in rebuilding relations that would never let this happen again. The population of the planet was reduced by approximately 40% overall, so was reduced to approximately 2.5 billion. MEntity: Most life has returned to farming and village-based culture, with communications returned, anti-radiation treatments available to all, and a world economy that is mostly based in barter. MEntity: We can look at this in more detail in further exchanges. There is much to see, and difficult for us to sort through in a short amount of time. 01:28:00 PM ViP1: If humanity succeeds in developing an artificial host intelligence that can sustain sentience, would a Design incarnating into that structure begin incarnating at Infant soul age? And what are the probabilities that this (development of true artificial sentience) will happen within the next 10 years? MEntity: If a new Design takes up a host, it will always begin as Infant Soul. However, when it comes to Sentient Artificial Intelligence as host, it can often be quite appealing to a displaced Design, assuming the body types are of similarity or interest, which would then take up incarnations from wherever fragments were in progress. MEntity: Artificial Intelligence created by Humans that is capable of hosting Sentience is likely within 50 years, but not likely within 10. Within 10 to 20 years, Artificial Intelligence will mimic Sentience to a high degree, but not host sentience. Over that period of time, hive souls may be of interest, and the depth of relationship with Artificial Intelligence could be on par with that of any child, or domestic animal companion. MEntity: The level of intelligence, or the access to knowledge, is not the same thing as having the capacity for emotional depth, empathy, and self-awareness, but once the programs are in place for self-motivated, self-regulating, experiential, exponential learning and problem solving, then it is a fairly short time before capable of hosting Sentience. 01:42:11 PM juni: While reading, I found this: juni: December 7, 2000 juni: Topic: Reality Shifts juni: [Clavis] Hello Michael. Is it possible to physically enter a parallel universe? To disappear from this parallel and enter another parallel, even meet our parallel selves physically? juni: [Michael_Entity] No..It is possible to do this within the same timeline (Future meets Past and vice versa), but we have not seen this occur inter-dimensionally. Some of your futures contain the ability to physically VIEW Parallels, but beyond that are obvious limitations. juni: Can you please expand on this answer about timelines, regarding meeting a future/past parallel self and how this happens/works? If there is time, can you comment about those futures that are able to view parallels and how this is accomplished? MEntity: Currently, one can view other parallels by using the imagination. In many futures, the capacity to harness the imagination (and dreams and thoughts) as a means of shared viewing is possible. In those futures, this knowledge, along with other breakthroughs in tangible consciousness, has led to breakthroughs in interdimensional resonance. This resonance can then be extrapolated into imagery that can be viewed. MEntity: This is related to what might now be explored as quantum entanglement. MEntity: As for the past and future meeting, this can happen by either "folding space/time" in a way that creates a meeting point which cannot be crossed, but can interact, or through what one might consider the familiar idea of time travel. MEntity: In instances of folding, it seems to be dependent upon access to the same line of familiar consciousness at this point. In other words, a person can only connect with his or her own past. MEntity: It is quite limited in its usefulness and implementation. MEntity: In terms of time travel as is most often understood, it is also of limited usefulness and implementation once it came to be realized that one cannot travel directly into one's own timeline in either direction, but that the act of travel, itself, means either the creation of a new timeline, or (more often) a travel to a different timeline. 02:02:58 PM Marry: Hey Michael, i would like to ask if there is a "smallest thing" in this universe (on the physical plane) or if we are living and perceiving the world in between two infinities, one getting smaller and smaller, the other one bigger and bigger (which is basically one infinity of size in general)? If the time is given, could you elaborate on what is bigger than what is currently seen as the biggest structure in the universe? And on the other hand, what is smaller than the things science currently knows as the smallest particles? MEntity: There is a smallest distance and it is currently known as the Planck, which is at the scale one may "measure" a singularity. In terms of scale and size in the universe, we think the biggest thing would be the universe, itself, which might be described as the Physical Context. It is the space within which "everything" exists that is made of matter. MEntity: In both instances, the biggest and smallest "things" are distances/space. MEntity: This is because that is the nature of the Physical Universe: separation, fragmentation, fragments. MEntity: Anything smaller than what is considered Planck length would be inversion that flips one into the next Universe. MEntity: Universes are "stacked" together in groups of 12, and are connected through these black holes, if you will. This is how they relate to one another and communicate. MEntity: Of course, if one were to flip into the other universe through one of these, "you" would no longer exist as you know it, but be "turned into" part of the fabric of that universe. MEntity: There is an economy of exchange that is in effect among the living universes stacked together, and those black holes are key to how that works. MEntity: So there is no infinitesimally small object, and no infinitely huge object. There is are tiny particles that have incredibly small distances between them, and massive structures that are held within even greater space, but there are caps to physical universe. 02:22:33 PM JanaK: You have said repeatedly that Essence Recognition evolves Essence. How does this work? I can understand how Karma evolves Essence, and I can see how Essence Recognition feels amazing, but would like to hear how that evolves Essence. JanaK: (i am referring to your statement that there are two ways for Essence to evolve) MEntity: Essence Recognition is exactly that: the recognition of a greater context in which one exists. This is not the same thing as liking someone, or feeling good, or feeling close, though recognition can certainly bring those states, but this is about truly recognizing the validity of one's existence beyond the obvious. When one recognizes this, there is evolution. The evolution comes MEntity: because one is no longer blind or distracted by initial limitations. MEntity: For simplistic purposes, imagine this: MEntity: there are two ways Recognition can work in terms of evolving you - 1) imagine you are in a closed box. If you based your context of existence only on this, you will live and die in that box. Only upon exiting this box through death will your consciousness expand because now it knows that there is more than the box. Now, imagine that you recognized this while in the box, and found a way out. Your life just expanded, and your experiential range just expanded, and your context of existence just expanded. MEntity: In these cases, Recognition can happen while in the box, or after exiting it. In either case, evolution occurs. MEntity: 2) imagine you heard about a great costume party and dressed up in your best idea for that costume party. Now imagine that you have arrived and others are also in costume, but each had different ideas about what the theme was for the party. If you only walk around as if the party is themed on your own idea, you will miss much. However, if you explore and share, you will learn a great deal about the various themes. But imagine if you recognize that there is actually someone behind the costume, and you recognize this. MEntity: Recognition of the source of the costume and theme means expanding upon one's existence in a way that brings evolution, rather than simple submersion into party themes. MEntity: These are highly simplistic analogies, but they will work. MEntity: In short, recognizing your existence beyond the obvious, and recognizing the existence of another beyond the obvious, naturally provokes evolution. Kurt: Hey Michael, like Diane i'd like a description of the jovial body type nature. Perhaps with just a small tidbit of when the jovial nature is unhealthy or imbalanced. Of course within time constraints. MEntity: The Jovial Body Type is gravitational in Nature. Fragments tend to be drawn to those who are Jovial for different reasons than that of the Venusian. While Venusians are attractive in terms of intimacy and affection, Jovial is attractive in terms of confidence and permission. MEntity: At the positive end of this gravity, there is a confidence that is contagious and inspiring, bringing out a sense of ownership and responsibility for one's self-esteem. MEntity: At the negative end of this gravity, there is a greedy entitlement for being the center of attention, or presumption that the Jovial can speak for others or AT them. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: So the Jovial Nature is excellent at being a source of expression for the self and for others, particularly for others who do not or will not speak up for themselves, but at the more challenging end of the spectrum, the Jovial can presume that what they have to say or express is inherently of value, interest, and meaning. MEntity: Of course, there is more to say on this subject, as well, but we must conclude here for today. The channel has pushed as far as he can tonight. Good evening to each of you. MEntity: Goodbye, for now. Note: The last two signed up will have the opportunity to go first next Ask Michael if they wish -- ClaireC and Tyrone
  21. MICHAEL SPEAKS 091309 Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with Martha's question. [QUESTION] I'm curious about how Essences organize concurrents these days, with so many, in terms of ETs, TCs, etc. Seems like a lot of threads to keep untangled, can't wrap my brain around it. It's not "normal" in human history to have so many concurrents as we do now, is that right? Confused and curious. [Michael Entity] The "how" of organizing Concurrents is no less complicated than trying to explain the patterns of branching in a tree that is part of a forest; what you see as PART of the tree is, in fact, what IS the TREE. By this we mean the organization and branching is not complicated to the Tree, nor is the branching out in time and space complicated to Essence. The leaf's understanding of how it can exist as itself among all of the leaves would always have to go back to the trunk, so to speak, and understand that its "individual" existence is PART of its entirety, not its entirety. And so it is with you, as Personality. You can only truly comprehend the vastness of yourself if you comprehend yourself as a FRAGMENT of who you are. It is not necessary for the individual leaf to comprehend the entirety of the Tree for itself to be "whole," and it is not necessary for the Personality to comprehend how Essence functions across and through time. For those Personalities who wish to explore this comprehension, it can be done. Most of that comprehension would come through analogy and metaphor, but it can be done. For instance, the whole of who you are as a Personality is a fragment of your entirety in the sense that you think of as "fragmented." Most of you can comprehend the reality that your body is not just skin, or just bone, or just a finger, or a hand, or foot, or a tongue, or a cell. Your body is that entirety, though each of those things exist as themselves, too. "You" have no problem bringing your attention to your fingertip right now, or to the weight of your tongue, or to the tension in your cheeks under your eyes, or to your ears as you hear the ambient sound around you, etc. No part of your body ceases to exist by focusing on any one part, and "you" do not cease to exist, nor are you less-"real," when Essence is focused on other "you's." There is an awesome order and structure to the universe and we are in the process of comprehending this on larger scales than even we suspected while living from the Physical Plane. To help you glimpse how your Essence manages all of the versions of itself, ponder how your body is whole, while being all of its parts, and then apply that to the larger patterns of your Essence's existence across time, through time, and among many bodies as parts of its wholeness. For the more metaphysically adventurous: in the same way you know your entity members as individuals with whom you resonate and love and find, so is the relationship between you and other you's within your Essence. Your entity members are ultimately the same as you: just other versions our Entity. Your cadre again is the same, and so on. All of us, are You. On a more intimate and personal scale, "you" can also grasp how your Essence manages itself among so many bodies, concurrent, simultaneous, and linear, by seeing how easily you manage yourself through time. You do not exist MORE because you exist today vs yesterday, and you do not exist LESS because you do not yet exist tomorrow. You do not exist LESS when you are physically in an office, while daydreaming about lunch. You do not exist MORE when you finally get to lunch. You are simply where you are at the moment. It is the same for Essence, except the capacity for multitasking by Essence exceeds anything one Personality can do. On a more practical level of understanding, some comprehension can be had when thinking of the Concurrents as similar to how one might raise several children at the same time. Your children exist independent of you, even while being your creations and completely dependent. You have the arcing agenda of nurturing for the children, as well as the specific attention to those moments and individuals who require it. Yet, on a whole, this is your family, a whole body in itself. We realize this can seem a complicated line of thinking to comprehend, but we think what we shared here in these various ways of understanding can lend some insight to that reality. [QUESTION] Hello Michaels, in the Sept energy report ..."September 5th through the 7th is a NEXUS for many of our students, but just as many will experience their Nexus at various points (individually) over the days between the 15th and the 20th. This means some may be the 15th through the 17th, while others may be the 16th through the 18th, etc., but most will be around 3 days....This Nexus is a Community Nexus, which usually means that this shift occurs in pockets of time close together that eventually "add up" to the collective shift of your community. A "Community" would be anyone remotely meaningful within your social or family circle. If you communicate with that person, he or she is a part of your community. This means that those within your more immediate circle would most likely move through the Nexus together, or close together. Keep in mind that having contact with someone is not the same thing as communicating. Not everyone with whom you have contact, even on a regular basis, is someone with whom you communicate (engage in meaningful exchange)." Could you expand on this please, how has the energy changed from the May Nexus to now and how it pertains within this group? [Michael Entity] Though we know Troy and other channels refer to our sharing of perception of patterns as an "energy report," which is a valid description, we can also suggest that it be seen more as an "emphasis report." Following that line of thinking, a Nexus could be understood as a pattern leading to a growing emphasis, or into a scattering of emphases. In this case, with this month's Nexus, there is a scattering of emphases. Nexus points occur regularly, so they are not magical windows of transformative change, though they can be experienced as such during some years. The emphasis, or energy, of May was focused on relationships, and issues of surrender, regret, flow, resentment, and an overall examination of how even the worst of experiences/relationships are contributing to your life in potentially beneficial ways. The emphasis, or energy, now is focused on your internal philosophy about life overall, and what you can DO about fulfilling your ideals, dreams, desires, etc. How it pertains to this group is directly. Each of you are in some way participating in the energies/emphases of the world around you, so it would not surprise us if each of you are internally confronting yourself about your personal philosophy, or interpretation, of life and experience and self. This internal confrontation is the source of the Nexus. The questions that have come up within you will align you more with some people than with others, and this is why it is a Community Nexus. Not only is the questioning happening individually, but along with many who feel the same way, and the outcome of this would be a clarity of direction individually, which adds up when in a group. Most of you will have come to some sense of clarification about your life in a way that might be captures in the phrase, "I can do it!" and this would help to move you forward with an openness that draws you to those whose "doing" is compatible, supportive, and even directly and mutually benefiting each other. Of course, the divergent aspect of this Nexus is that there will also be versions of you who say, "I can do it! But I won't." and this will move groups together in directions of mutual grief, defeat, and general boredom as the comfort in the lack of will is chosen over the effort needed to follow your will. It could be said, then, that May was about grasping the fact that you are in a boat with others in a current that has others in their own boats, and that none of these can be completely controlled. September is about grasping the fact that you do have a means of steering, using an oar, motor, or even a stick if you have to. Just because one cannot control, does not mean one cannot navigate. For some of you, it is exciting to find that oar, and for others it may be a disappointing discovery because steering is not enough, and you preferred the comfort of justified complaint and confusion and may "accidentally" toss that oar off the side. Some simply find the current to be fine as it is. This is why we said in our report that the extent to which you determine the oar is of use is the extent to which your next three months might be relieved of the feelings of Impatience and Martyrdom. Choice is always the "oar." Or more accurately: Choice is always the "current," and Decisions are always the "oar." In terms of "cooperation" vs "isolation," we might use the words "wholeness" and "division," as "cooperation" implies an imposition. The only cooperation most need to be concerned with in a life is the cooperation among the various parts of oneself, or a sense of wholeness and trust, vs a sense of division and conflict within, with one "lazier," or frightened, or angry part dominating other parts. If you desire to DO one thing, but DO another, you are divided. Desire is your navigational alert to where all of you want to go, including Essence. And including the angry, lazy, resentful, and screaming, kicking parts, as well. [QUESTION] Michael has said that some parallels were VERY different than others and won't re-merge back into the total until well into the Causal. Can you give me several examples where history went off on completely different tracks, besides the nuclear war that occurred in one parallel back in our mid-1980s? I was told that I have several parallels that will never merge into this trunk or branch until we've all cycled off. I realize that each parallel considers itself to be the "true trunk." [Michael Entity] Not all parallels consider themselves to be the "true trunk." It is natural to live as if it is, of course, which is exactly how it is designed to be experienced. The older the soul, and the more exploration of this concept, the more likely the sense of such solidity begins to dissipate, which can make for some very interesting lifetimes for a Personality. When conscious awareness and observation of the literal shifts and changes in parallels are explored by a Personality, it can be terrifying and exhilarating. Much of what is experienced as discrepancies among parallels is ignored, briefly noted and then dismissed, or simply experienced as a private confusion. [QUESTION] Schizophrenia? [Michael Entity] In a very few cases, Schizophrenia might result, but that condition is more a result of an internal breakdown of communication among various sub-personalities assigned to different emotional components of the Personality. In response to your broader question: there are a multitude of parallels that have spun off at various points in your history to become fairly incomprehensible to the Personalities experiencing "this" parallel. Some of those examples would be: 1) Your world as a result of the North of America losing its Civil War, wherein slavery is still common, though with compassionate acts passed to protect the well-being of the slaves. The business of buying, selling, breeding, and exporting people has escalated to a scale fairly difficult to imagine or convey. 2) Another branch has emphasized a move away from all physical contact among people and focused on methods for sustaining that lack of contact, particularly through electronics, personal pods, and egg-shaped, stacked housing that holds only one person. "Families" are clustered together, but even babies are encapsulated upon birth and fed through a means that is built in to the pods. Procreation is done through laboratories and children are assigned. 3) Another branch has emphasized a taboo on "celebrity," which has become illegal. Those who gain notoriety beyond a certain population count face various forms of punishment, including death. 4) Another branch has never put to use anything beyond the use of natural elements as they occur naturally, or as close to "naturally," as possible, meaning that living is found in natural creations, such as caves, tree canopies, and some simple structures. There is no electricity and communication is only within shouting distance. The examples can continue, but we can safely suggest that if you can imagine it, it exists in some form. An aside: all parallels have access to each other through that single bridge: Imagination. Imagination is far more a tool than a novelty. The examples we cited today are examples of parallels generated from various points for specific, pivotal reasons: The first example is rather obvious and recent. The second from a point in time you might see as a time of the "Black Plague." The third originated from a Nexus around 2000 years ago as Christianity gained its footing and the taboo of self-serving positions in society were outlawed below the levels of the church, but another Nexus generated from a massive wave of suicides and stalker/murders in the 80s, merging into each other. The fourth from the impact of weather patterns not moving to any extreme to encourage nomadic behavior. The examples could extend into off-planet contact and integration of alien populations, to a parallel where only 4 bodies remain of your species. [QUESTIONS] Greetings Michael, my question is about the Internal Monads; following is from a private session with Troy: "In fact, the completion of Internal Monads in the negative pole are vital to the process of evolution for the soul. Each Internal Monad will have a lifetime with a completion in the negative pole before a completion in the positive pole....A successful completion of a Soul Level means the successful completion in the Positive Pole for ALL Internal Monads within one life. This can take several lives to figure out how to build through each Internal Monad relative to that Soul Level." Does every IM actually need to experience a lifetime apiece with each of the 7 IMs incomplete?! Any elaboration of this would be much appreciated. [Michael Entity] Before the late levels of the Mature cycle, it is fair to say that there is a completion in the negative pole for each Internal Monad as part of the evolution. After the 4th Level of the Mature cycle, this is no longer a consistency. In fact, before the 4th Level of the Mature cycle, there are often a multitude of Negative Pole completions of an Internal Monad before a completion in the Positive Pole. We speak in general here, but this is of such consistency that it is fair to speak so generally. There are exceptions to this consistency, but no rules. It simply seems to be the nature of how Essence builds upon experience. Many have heard the cliche that says one cannot appreciate the light without having experienced the darkness, and this is true for most for a long time, but eventually this is found to be an absurd concept. Any child can tell you that he or she does not have to drink soured milk to appreciate ice cream. And so it is that most of you eventually find your means of comprehending that does not require such fracturing, such pain, and struggle as a means to experience wholeness, joy, and ease. [QUESTION] In the later mature, and old cycles, is it necessary (usually) to have many lives to process the first 3 IMs? [Michael Entity] The variations after that point are across the board, so to speak. The variations become a matter of creativity, and not confined to any default. This is because the "negative pole" is experienced differently than before. It is not always experienced as a "bad" thing, or a painful thing, but as a matter of experience that brings as much benefit as any other, and it is not avoided anymore than it is preferred. It is simply a matter of choice, or a matter of allowing room for Personality to go as "awry" as it chooses. Some of the most exciting and creative adventures have been experienced by Essence through the Personalities who were the most "rogue." However, the negative pole does not always feel so great to the Personality. In older soul Personalities that are most rejecting of Essence, the Personality always suspects "something" is not quite valid in that rejection and keeps an eye open for Essence, which allows room for Essence to help navigate within that lifetime. [QUESTION] Hello, Michael. You have begun to answer these questions in many ways throughout this chat. Perhaps, though, you could elaborate more specifically. 1) Are you aware of another mid-causal teacher who calls itself Abraham? They teach about the law of attraction and how we create our own reality/experience. 2) How do your teachings about karma and essence choices relate to their teaching? They teach about how we create our own reality through our vibrational offering and how we can control much of what comes into our experience by guiding our thoughts in a certain direction and paying attention to how we feel. They teach that what shows up in our experience is always (without exception) a match to our vibrational offering. My main question is 3) How much can we "control" from this PERSONALITY perspective? For example: if essence wants to learn lessons about poverty, would I be able to co-create wealth by my conscious, NOW focusing of my thoughts and attention? [Michael Entity] In response to your questions: 1) Yes, we are aware of this entity, who acts as a "channel" themselves for other entities. The entity who is identified as Abraham is of the Astral Plane, however, and acts as a medium for Causal Plane entities who are the source of the teaching. 2) We find our teachings dovetail quite well with the source of Abraham's teachings, but we see some of that validity is lost in the translation through the channel and furthermore in the reception by the students. The emphasis on emotion and feeling is an emphasis of the Astral entity who is learning all about the dynamics of emotion on that plane, so that entity is teaching what it is learning, but leaving out some key elements that the Causal sources are offering. The emphasis on "vibration" is an Astral teaching, because that is the direct medium of experience in that plane, but this is a difficult and rather intangible term for most to find useful to any extent while Physical. It often leads to frustration and further division within the self as it seems this should be such an easy concept to harness and use. This is not to say that many do not "get it." Many do. But those who truly grasp the teaching also grasp the limitations. In answer to number 3: you have COMPLETE control over your lifetime as Personality. This is said, of course, with the caveat that "complete control" is meant in terms of CHOICE, and choice is often confined to certain parameters imposed by the nature of the Physical Plane, and the impact from others who choose to impact you. However, Essence NEVER imposes. Essence does not impose a lesson of poverty, for instance. Instead, it learns from the choices of Personality when those choices lead to a life of poverty. It is true that Essence may be curious or want to learn about poverty, but it does not impose those lessons. Essence may choose to be born within the conditions of poverty, but from there, the Personality is in control. Everything leading up to the first breath is the choice and creation of Essence. Beyond that first breath, everything is a result of choice made by the Personality. The entire concept of "lessons" is a misnomer, by the way. Essence does not impose lessons, and neither does the universe, god, or any other force. Instead, "lessons" are simply what one chooses to gain from an experience. Twenty children can be in the strictest of classrooms with the greatest of impositions to learn a certain subject, and all will leave having learned something varied, even if all of them can now add 4 plus 4. You can create what you want with this life, within the parameters of what tools you have, what tools you gain, with your intentions, with your call for help and your openness for support, and your use of energy in a direction that is aligned with your desires, and your willingness to deal with the obstacles that arise from within and without. [QUESTION] What are some of those key elements that are left out of Abraham's teachings? [Michael Entity] What is missing is too much to explore here, but can be summed up in being the Causal aspects. The equation of creation that requires Cause, Force, or Action to be a part of it. The emphasis from the entity known as Abraham focuses on vibration, thought, and feeling, with some emphasis on doing, but the doing is then stripped from the teaching in the recipients' interpretation as they are left presuming that reality is created merely from positive feelings and proper thinking. For those who realize that reality is not simply something you wish into existence around you, but is one that is generated from your force in the world that is generated through your acts of choice, and your choice in action, then the teaching can be of great use. [QUESTION] Are there any karmic scenarios that would make it difficult for personality to create what it wants? [Michael Entity] In answer to the reality of karmic scenarios making it difficult for personality to create what it wants: Yes, that is the nature of Karma, which is not only the interference of choice, but the intensity generated from the reaction to that interference. However, as the soul ages, some of what would have been a most karmic scenario simply becomes just another thing. For instance, in early lives if one were to lose his legs because of the impact of choice from another, this could effectively "end" the life and all of the intentions of Personality, but in later lives, this would simply be an obstacle that is tended to on the way to fulfilling those intentions and no Karma is generated. Of course, murder (the most extreme Karma) is difficult to overcome in terms of being able to be overcome by the Personality, so those Karmic scenarios are explored long before the concept of "creating reality" even comes into conscious possibility of a Personality. In other words, in most instances where Karma is the interfering force that limits the intention and choice of a Personality, they are experienced as part of the haphazard navigation of that Personality through a life, but when the Personality begins to conceive of creating reality from choice, vibrations, feeling, thought, to an extent that could be considered "metaphysical," then that Personality is usually beyond the influence of Karma to the degree that it could hinder all choices. [QUESTION] Thank you. Right now we are in a period of 'mercury retrograde'. All sorts of problems/issues involving communications, electronics, transportation, etc. are blamed on 'mercury retrograde'. How much, if any, does the 'appearance' of a planet revolving in reverse direction around the sun really have? Is this a real influence or is this a case of 'finding something because you are looking for it'? Or do we 'create' these incidents by our expectations? [Michael Entity] In the same way that our Energy Reports could be read at any point in the year and find some validity, so can the symbology of Astrological influences. Planets are symbolic representations of general emphases, but they are not literally the causes. Electronics, communication, and transportation issues can be found at any point in the year, as can, in our case, issues of emphasis represented by Goals, Relationships, Attitudes, etc. However, observing synchronicity among patterns, and extracting meaning from those patterns, is valid and an evolutionary perception. In other words, while Mercury does not cause electronic or communication issues, it does symbolize the period of time when awareness toward those areas of life can be most clear. Our Energy Reports do not tell you what will happen in your world, or what is causing it, but what is most obvious and capable of being explored with some amount of clarity, based on valid patterns we perceive. [COMMENT] Ok, so we 'find' those incidents because we are 'looking for' them [Michael Entity] Yes, to some extent that is true; the patterns of clarity in observation of those breakdowns coincide with the movement of the planet, so that "more" of them seem to occur during that time, but more did not happen, it is only that more of them are seen. Keep in mind that the symbology of Astrology is ancient, and the patterns were adapted long ago. This would be true of most planetary systems with different planetary configurations. "In the beginning" these forces were not as aligned, but as observations began to be noted and shared, the Sentient species begins to use the planetary configurations as a kind of clock that will extend through the existence of the species. Planetary configurations, or Astrology, could be said to help with the bridging between Essence and Personality in terms of "keeping track" and planning. The first place this is utilized is in the Body Types, as your Body Types are generated from planet closest to the midheaven upon conception of your body. [QUESTION] and that is more than 'coincidence' or just coincidence, that the patterns leading to those breakdowns coincide with the movement of the planet? [Michael Entity] We would not call any significant connection between the symbolism of Astrology and your real world experiences as being merely coincidence. [QUESTION] so the patterns are not caused by the planetary positioning but have been aligned in human thought to take advantage of the planetary positioning? [Michael Entity] That is close. We would not contain it to human thought, though. It would be more an Essence perception. It is a momentum that is utilized effectively. The clock is turning, so to speak, and Essence has learned how to use that clock for various aspects of creation of the life, Agreements, Karmic patterns, and potentials of Personality. Though this is extremely simplified, think of how the Sun comes up every day and how one times his or her life to work with that cycle. It is not that the Sun causes your day, or your experiences, but one does know that one can see better during the daylight, find sync with more people actively during the daylight, and rest, or play in the night. The Sun does not decide this or cause this, but it is used as a means to emphasize certain areas of life. And so it is with all of the planetary "influences." Mercury does not cause the breakdowns of electronics and communication, but it has been assigned as the symbol and pattern associated with your species exploration and emphasis of what it symbolizes. It is known to some that the more one truly studies Astrology, the less the influence is seen. This is similar to how one can find one is ruled by the momentum of the day's clock, or eventually see the clock as simply indicating opportunities and potential, but it is never the influence in itself. The recognition of patterns is a Higher Moving Center positive pole of Beauty, or Energy. As one recognizes patterns, one begins to comprehend that the current pattern is within other patterns. From the most personal level of omens and signs to astrology to "Michael Math" and beyond, the patterns are valid and exist. We can discuss this further as this then moves into discussion of fractals and their place in understanding the nature of reality. [QUESTION] What benefit is studying the Michael teaching now - from the point of view of future lives - if we shall presumably be completely ignorant of it then? In rare instances it may have helped to deal sensibly with a karmic etc. situation, but otherwise it seems to be mainly theory for most, and thus forgotten after this life. [Michael Entity] We cannot predict how a future life of yours will see a past life of itself, or what a future Personality will allow into its life that was gained from the comprehension you gain in this life, but we can say that the effort to gain comprehension of your life is not a wasted effort, because the concern is not about the future life; it is about you,now. Reincarnation is valid. Simultaneous (parallel) lives, Concurrent lives, Past lives, and Future lives, even "adjacent" lives (which we have barely begun to explore with our students) are all valid, but these have no bearing on what you choose to do for you. Now. In this life. No matter how many lives your Essence lives, this life is yours. It begins and ends in a profound way that is unique only to you and what you do between those points is your choice. However, in terms of how a future life might benefit from what you learn in this life, we can only use you as an example of a future Personality of your own Essence's past. You found us again. You are studying with us again. And you are using what you learn again. You found us faster in this lifetime than in other lifetimes, and you call us by a more accurate name this time. From our perspective, what "you" did as "Madge" or "Buford" in your past is clearly showing up as part of what "you" are building upon in this life. But we would also say that for most, this claim would mean little to the current Personality. [QUESTION] The teaching is mostly just words. [Michael Entity] The interpretation of our teaching as being merely words is a matter of interpretation and application. Some of our students do not choose to apply our teaching, but simply choose to study it, or explore it. For those who apply it, our teaching becomes something very different. All interpretations are valid, as far as we are concerned. We find the truth to be that "everything" is theory, or just words, until it is applied. Keep in mind that many children sit for hours in classrooms learning subjects that are of little interest or understanding of their real world application until they are in situations where that learning is activated and applicable within context. Learning CPR is something many may never have to apply, but the learning was not lost, nor was it merely "words," simply because it was not necessary to apply it somewhere in the future. Many things learned may never have any bearing on your current life in the end. For many of our students, the exploration of our teaching is a wide net that catches what might be used, and a lot of what might not be used within the current lifetime. We can only say to you that what you choose to explore, study, and/or apply is always added to Essence's knowledge, but we will never be able to "prove" this to you, and we would not wish to, anyway. What we wish to emphasize is that you have a choice. A choice in what to explore, a choice in what to apply, and if the power of your choice is the only thing any of you ever learn from us, you have learned what we came to teach. The rest of our teaching is simply our suggestion of tools for how to utilize Choice. We will conclude our session with you here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  22. MICHAEL SPEAKS 120207 Open Floor QUESTION : WHEN TROY POSTED THE CHIEF FEATURES OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES, HE SAID THE AKASHIC FEATURES WERE BEING ACCESSED, HAVE NOT HEARD MENTION OF THIS DISTINCTION, CAN YOU CLARIFY? MICHAEL: Through some of our channels and students it has become clear, through questioning and observation, that there are three versions of an individual's Essence and Personality Profile: the Private Version (that which you wish for your Overleaves to be), the Public Version (that which others assume you are), and your Akashic, or True Overleaves, which are on record and may or may not coincide with the projected overleaves (private) and/or the expected overleaves (public). These variations have always been in effect due to variations of clarity among channels, but only recently have the channels begun to truly explore the apparent discrepancies. All three can lend insights to a Personality and a life, so we do not imply that one is better than another. They are simply different angles of approach to understanding the Personality. In many cases, for instance, regarding public figures, our channels and students often interpret the fragment by the persona seen through the filters of media, thus interpreting aspects of the profile to fit those observations, instead of reading the True Overleaves. QUESTION: For the chief features, though, I don't understand. Since, supposedly, according to Michael, it is a pivotal event that is the catalyst to put us into our chief feature and it is not pre-chosen? MICHAEL: You are correct. Chief Negative Features are not pre-chosen. This, however, has nothing to do with an individual's interpretation of himself or his interpretation of another person versus the Akashic version of either. We will give you an example: A fragment in Arrogance may not see himself as Arrogant, but sees himself as Impatient, since he equates his quick judgment of people as a form of intolerance. Still others may interpret him as Stubborn because he avoids intimate situations and does not budge from that stance. Those interpretations from the self or from others does not change the fact that on record his fears are rooted in Vulnerability, or Arrogance. Each version will lend insight, especially if understood within the proper context. It is Good Work to understand how others see you, and how you see yourself, and how you ARE. That is triad of self. QUESTION: Like so many others, we work thru life issues in dreams. Intense dreams with water....flooding. dark, raging storms or instant floods...swim through...waking up up very emotionally spent. Please explain the flooding in dreams. thank you. MICHAEL: It is true that one level of dreaming is for the processing of events. In many cases the universal symbols are used to work through these events, such as Water equating levels of emotions. It could be said, then, that these descriptions you lend to your symbol of water are equated with the same descriptions you would give to some obvious experiences of emotion (or fears) in your waking life. However, what tends to be even more insightful in your dreaming is your position relative to the symbol. If you are drowning, the "meaning" can be very different from if you are managing a rocking ship. It is always a more direct and accurate route of dream interpretation for the individual to write down what the symbols mean to himself or herself and then put it back into the context of the dream and assess how those symbols interact with each other and the dreamer. In general, though, water is often used by fragments to symbolize emotions, or the lower astral plane (emotional plane). QUESTION: I've been reading a lot of previous groups' postings from the Michael groups and have answered more than one of my questions; however, "essence mates," from other grand cycle ETs, remains inexplicable. Can you elaborate on them and the role they play in many of our current lives or cycles, and conversely our role in theirs? MICHAEL : They rarely play a significant role beyond the opportunity for Essence Recognition, which is the only form of true evolution. In that regard, they are highly significant, but that is not exclusive to an Essence Mate; all fragments with which you have had past contact are potential opportunities for Essence Recognition. Essence Mates could be likened to an "Ex" with which you have had a relationship that ran its course and transitioned positively with total closure; the nostalgia and resonance is warm and soft, with undertones of deep appreciation, but no charge; no intensity. Spending an entire Grand Cycle with a fragment leaves even the "spark" with the "memories." This is because a Grand Cycle to your Essence/Spark is like a single lifetime is to your Role, taking with it the memories most resonate and impactful. An Essence Mate can often be included in the new cycle as a significant relationship again within this new context, but that is a relationship between Roles, not the Sparks, and "Essence Mate" refers to the Sparks' relationship. We will include here that what we mean by "Essence Recognition" is the profound "knowing" that one has a relationship with another fragment or self beyond the present version. We will also include the note that, while "Essence" and "Role" are often used interchangeably, they are technically different: the Essence takes on a Role, hence your Essence Role, or Role in Essence, but your Essence, itself, does not have a Role. QUESTION: More like Traveling Companions? MICHAEL: No, Traveling Companions are yours because of current-cycle mathematical associations. Essence Mates do not necessarily have any mathematical resonance and ties. They are simply remembered. QUESTION: My question concerns identifying Input sources when one is receiving information/energy from a source beyond one's self, whether in channeling, tarot, dreams, etc. I once had a dream in which Michael said, "Every time you have thought it was us, it was us." Could you give me specific ways that a student who is openly seeking contact might know when they have contact with the Michael entity, as opposed to their Essence, guides, or other teachers? In what ways might we experience Michael's influence in our daily lives, when the channels are not around? MICHAEL : We try to be as present as possible for all who call upon us, even if the channel is a "fraud" and even if the student is "delusional." We are aware of when any of you call upon us. Our presence, however, is as clear through a channel, or to a student, as that person is with himself or herself. This is why many of you who begin accessing higher sources of contact (for lack of a better phrase), whether this is us, or your own "Higher Self," the voice or energy "sounds like you," or feels like your own imagination. This is because it is a necessary part of the process in clearing out a channel to a higher source that you first clear out all of your own ideas, prejudices, and presumption about what should happen or what should be the responses to your inquiries. One of the easiest and most direct ways of learning to differentiate our energy from your own is to go ahead, freely, with your use of imagination as your form of contact. Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for "extra-sensory" perceptions. As you keep track of your contact, you will begin to notice glimpses of validation for contact with us that are clearly not "you." There is not as easy a differentiation when accessing your Higher Self (Essence), however, as that IS you to a great degree. But that is not your question, so we will not elaborate at this time. We can also add that many of our channels and students interpret our energy as Blue, as a Crowd, as literal images of Kings/Warriors, and as a sphere of some kind. These are only a few examples, but each finds his or her own means of interpreting us. We've seen our energy interpreted by your dreams as a medallion in the past. QUESTION: Hello Michael! I was really fascinated by last month's message about how to develop one's communication with Michael. Can you elaborate on the part about how to build strength in the axes where we lack emphasis in our charts? MICHAEL: Yes. This is already in the works with Troy in his posting an "MBlog" entry soon, which will elaborate on this. A response to your question will be found there. QUESTION: We've had discussion threads about the different feel to different Channels of You. Is the primary difference due to different fragment groups being accessed within You? MICHAEL: We have elaborated on this question in the past, and will include it with Troy's edited transcript of this session. This may shed a great deal of light on your question. (NOTE: see excerpt added at end of transcript) We can say to you now, however, that the accessing of various groups of fragments among us through different channels has the least significance in what you experience as differences. This is often used to explain the differences, but it has little, if no bearing. We are a reunited entity and speak as one, regardless of the representative speaking for us. We are not fragmented into groups and we do not run our communications among us from separate "cubicles" that do not interact or share the same perception. We do not have various personalities and we do not have different things to say from among us. These explanations are conveniences created from various levels of understanding of the process of channels as a means to explain discrepancies and variations of feel and expression, but they are not valid. The primary differences are found in the level of agreement with us for communicating our teaching and the level of presence from the personality conveying our energy, whether verbally or non-verbally. We will conclude here. Good day to all of you. Goodbye. ADDITIONAL CHANNELING: QUESTION: Please elucidate on the type of channeling agreements you have with students, Michael? MICHAEL: We have three tiers of Agreements with fragments who work with us in the form of “Channeling.” “Primary Students” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across many lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this current lifetime. Our teaching is used by these students as one of their primary philosophies, if not their only philosophy. “Primary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share Agreements that extend across lifetimes and, of course, from before birth for this lifetime to use our teaching as a primary philosophy, and to help impart our teaching as a primary philosophy by giving us a medium of expression into the physical plane to our Primary Students. “Secondary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate their experimental exposure to our teaching. These fragments will most likely take only parts of our teaching as needed and not use it at a primary philosophy. “Secondary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement to act as our channel, but we develop an Agreement to accommodate these fragments who feel a strong drive to build their own teaching upon our philosophy. (note: Michael has said that most of their channels come from this category) “Tertiary Students” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement and the student may never find valid contact with a channel, but we develop an Agreement to help guide in the use of our teaching as they might choose to use it as a guide for a period of time. “Tertiary Channels” are those fragments with whom we share no original Agreement, and these fragments do not have valid verbal channeling skills, but we develop an Agreement to help build those skills, even as he or she may grossly misrepresent himself, herself, or our teachings. In other words, anyone claiming to channel us will automatically find a connection to us, though their ability to hear or convey us may be severely limited, despite their eagerness and sense of connection to us. These channels are most often noted for the valid and powerful "energy work" that is felt from us when working through them, even as the verbal channeling is lacking in clarity or accuracy. “Regulators” are those fragments with whom we have Agreements (which may or may not have been generated before birth) to not only gather tangible records of all works offered by our Primary and Secondary Channels, but to help question, authenticate, and validate (and invalidate) this material. In some cases, there are overlapping Agreements, such as an Agreement to be a Regulator while also being a Primary Channel or Student. Ultimately, we come to all who ask. Our teaching is accessible to anyone.
