  1. As far as politics goes, as soon as I could rationalize, I've considered myself an Anarchist. Since middle school probably. Though I didn't really understand what it meant back then. I do now, and for the longest time I considered it just an ideal. Like yeah, in Utopia anarchy will just come natural... but only in Utopia. I'm not so sure about all that now. Just so I'm clear Anarchy literally means "no ruler." That's it. But there is more to it obviously. An Anarchist is as far left as you can get, but doesn't recognize leadership or hierarchy unless it proves itself absolutely necessary and useful. A good example would be a hospital or an architectural firm. The difference here is someone IS an authority rather than possessing authority. The architect needs to approve the final design. There's a lot of talk about the resource based economy it seems we may be leading towards... that sounds like an Anarchist workforce to me. Because by default Anarchism comes with it a certain degree of Socialism, and a socialized work force values the cost of labor based on the value it provides to people. For example, everyone has free access to food, water, housing, schooling and all the basic needs of life. Participation will be voluntary. Everyone lives if they want. But you want a new fancy hat? It'll cost ya. The new Playstation 17 when it comes out? That'll probably cost ya too. You follow me? There can be no capital in an Anarchist society. Our economy would be based on resources not commodities. Profit wouldn't exist. Really, just given the state of the environment and global politics it's hard for me to not believe we need very radical change on a worldwide scale. Something so radical as banishing the idea of rulers and hierarchies. It seems like a total necessity. There will always be oppression as long as one or few are at the top... and there shouldn't even be a top to begin with. Capitalism is killing us. It is killing the world, not so slowly anymore. But what can we do? And I dont know the answer to that. Capitalism has this "play or die" rule we dont talk about. If you dont or cant participate you become marginalized at the least and killed at the worst. And lord forbid you try and make a Non-capitalist society, they just get crushed on purpose. What are we to do? So many, even many on the left of politics, believe in Capitalism, a hierarchy. Like it's the only path to true freedom or some shit... it's just the opposite! How do we break the game that's designed to break us? How do we bust the cycle that's intended to perpetuate and consume indefinitely? Part of me wonders if the IS will bring any of these ideas to the mainstream. Anarchy seems perfectly aligned to the Michael Teachings and one could argue the MTs are an Anarchist Teaching. It's obvious change is needed, but what will it look like? A consensus based democracy with a horizontal citizen led power structure would be a start. Who knows? I personally feel like a successful resource based economy would have to be Anarchic in nature and practice. What are your thoughts? And what could an individual do to bring change?
  2. February 17, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel (referred to as Otterly in the transcript) Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Yes, we are here. One moment. Tonight, we have an “open floor” and you will take part in shaping the topic terrain. You may begin asking questions in the format set for this forum. We are ready. [Nemo999] If I was to materialize on your plane what would it look like to me? [Michael_Entity] This is a difficult scenario to translate. There are no needs for physical eyes in the Causal Plane, therefore, as a human this “place” may still remain “invisible”. The closest scenario we can come to transferring the experience of the Causal to you is more in terms of your Intellectual “a-ha’s!”… the space where everything suddenly makes sense and is connected clearly. [nemo999] To me dreams are unclear and very hazy–what I picture as your plane of existence. [Michael_Entity] The Plane itself encompasses the Astral and the Physical, with the Astral and Physical simply being more condensed versions of the same energy. It would not be impossible then for you to experience Causality while Physical, but with a tremendous drop in frequency and in circles of realization. To describe it in Physical terms is not possible. It is intellectually based and therefore, as we said, those moments of clarity and insight become foundations and structures “here”. Take a moment one day and make a note of every person you pass; note that their life is filled, has its path and it crossed yours, briefly or deeply. Follow the thoughts that lead from each person and how they must move into spaces that you will never see, filling other lives as well, crossing other paths in brevity or depth. Continue this throughout your day in as solid a way as possible, retaining a count of each person and a brief inner comment on their reality. If you are able to do this for a full 24 hours and grasp the magnitude of your contact, crossings, connections, etc. You will have a moment where you have grasped a reflection of Causality. [nemo999] My picture is of dots of light, sort of a probability cloud of them. [Michael_Entity] A cloudy image will not suffice as a reflection; there would need to be comprehension. This is why it is a goal while Physical to BE Physical, not Causal. We note to you that you will have “plenty of time” to enjoy the Causal when you “get here”. We will still be “here” when you get here, in fact. [MaryBV] For the past couple of weeks, a small group of people have been working with Terri with Motherwave breathing exercises. It appears I have an energy block in my knees. Could Michael tell me what sorts of reasons energy can become bottled up in the body? What sorts of things might we do to keep our energy flowing unimpeded through the body? [Michael_Entity] We would not be able to comment on reasons for energy “blockages” with any meaning unless specifically about a person; the reasons are highly subjective. We can, however, say that on a larger scale this symbolizes where your FOCUS or LACK of focus is. The body is symbolic on a larger scale too, and the location has meaning. You would first determine whether this “blockage” is sensed as having “edges” or if it seems “muffled” and heavy. If it seems sharp or edged, this is an indication of having a seriously distracting FOCUS in that particular area of the life. If the energy seems muffled or cloudy and heavy, this is a serious LACK of attention in that area of the life. The KNEES are an area of the body where an individual deals with the false personality and Chief Feature. In examining this combined symbology, you may find you are either RESISTING looking at an area of the life being run by CF or currently in battle with the area of life run by CF. There are, of course, many other ways of perceiving the meaning of energy when sensed from an inner place, but this is our basic response. Do you have a further question about this? We will respond. [MaryBV] Is it usually this life that causes the energy to become bottled up, or does past life play a part? How does one know? [Michael_Entity] That is a subtle difference. We suggest that if it is coming up, it is certainly relevant within the present life somehow, regardless of past life associations. Each life has its own set of tools and parameters, even if some of its impetus and motivation stem from the “past”. It is always most meaningful to search your present first. The “past” may make more sense of its intensity or history, broadening the contexts, but only THIS life will find its solution. [mamajo] A while back in public chat, you said that to connect with the energy of our entity, we should try to visualize a “Michael central” in a type of meeting house. When I did this, I connected directly with your channel Otterly (who is an entity mate of mine), could you re-define the process for me, perhaps I was doing it wrong. [Michael_Entity] Are you speaking of connecting with your own entity, or us? [mamajo] Well, the context I understood it to be was my own entity, which would allow sharing and learning to take place. I’m not referring to channeling per-se, just connecting to the energy stream to aid in learning. I think I understood it to be analogous to astral school to be. [Michael_Entity] In either case, you were not “doing it wrong”. In fact, what you have energetically and symbolically deemed Otterly IS a “type of meeting house”. You can be more specific in your design, changing this to a literal visual house, or allow your inner picture to be what is more easily recognizable as a resource. By connecting to “Otterly”, this symbol can act as a very meaningful conduit, in this case for your own Entity OR in connection with us (since Otterly is connected to both). If you are distracted by your symbol of the “meeting house”, it is up to you to simply change that symbol. Otherwise, it is valid. [mamajo] Ok, so I didn’t do it wrong then, I thought I had done a “bad thing” there impinging on a “person's energy place”. [Michael_Entity] That is not a possibility. When you “call” on someone, even if specifically, the aspect you call to you, the energy that makes that up, is but an extension of the energy, specifically for you. It has no bearing on the core source and its experience of itself. This is why it is possible to dream of someone intimately without that dream being “shared” or remembered together and how you can “meet” Astrally without both having to be asleep. [Peepo] Why is the period of history we are living in like that of Caesar Augustus? [Michael_Entity] There are many parallels to that time frame, from the dynamics of Government to the culture, from the distribution of wealth, to the methods of taxes and welfare. That is a large topic and one with which we can delve into as a specific when the forum is focused entirely on the topic. We will say that the disruption of your leaders in the U.S. is the most important parallel having to be dealt with. The crux of this disruption has not come full circle yet. We will also note that this channel is not one of our best historians, therefore we are limited here. The parallels in culture are in the celebrations of art and creativity, freedom of expression, and an emphasis on peace. It is also in the development of care for all, not just the wealthy, including free basics in terms of shelter and food and clothing. These things are progressively becoming accessible in the U.S. We do have much more to say on the topic. We will continue at another time. [Deb] Will Michael explain the difference between want and need? [Michael_Entity] We find the differences between WANT and NEED to be profound: WANT is anything you are choosing consciously to ADD to your life, while NEED is anything you seek to FILL or SUSTAIN your life. There are certain areas of your life that are defaulted “pockets” seeking to be filled; these are NEEDS (food, shelter,…) There are certain areas of your life where a foundation is built and additions are sought (such as more relationships, more money, more or anything…), and that seeking is a WANT. There are always NEEDS and WANTS in a life and both add to the sense of searching in a life. NEEDS will always seek to be fulfilled first, at any cost. If they are not met, WANTS then become “dreams” unfulfilled or desperation, longings. [HectorO-C] I wanted to know if an update on the manifestation of the Infinite Soul was possible. [Michael_Entity] Since the beginning of this year, we have seen a tremendous drop in activity around preparations for a manifestation. The Infinite Soul will only manifest in a parallel or time frame when the Sentience is lacking direction and seeks assistance. A “surprising” factor in the last Nexus is in the detailed filtering of reality options that were leading toward more disintegration. This has created a lull in assessment, a pause, to see what humans will create over this year. It appears your species seeks more integration “on your own” than you might have anticipated. The novelty of having a manifestation may be exciting, but the indication that your species and the planet are transiting in Soul Age with little incidence is equally exhilarating to the soul. This can be likened to a teenager whose “father” threatens to pull over to make a point, but then the teenager making its own efforts to grow and communicate. So our update as far as we can see is a holding pattern. We will comment as this unfolds. [Barry] I am asking as proxy for another…. I am concerned with the future generations to come of our young. I believe that many are on the way to faster enlightenment, but still many are having a hard time. How could we as parents and adults help? I have a few ideas but perhaps you might validate or advise something? [Michael_Entity] Each generation of youth, as they mature and reach adulthood, has the same reaction to seeing the following generations of youth. What we would suggest is trusting in their processes. Those before you feared for you and you “survived”. This will not change for the next generation after you. This is more about your maturing than anything else; it is natural and part of your own growth. There is no “faster enlightenment” available now than there was before. We are unclear as to what you refer. The most any parent or adult can do is BE adults and parents, not seek to be saviors or heroes. Realizing your knowing more about the world and your place in it has made you no more or less “safe” will free you to shine as examples of trust, rather than teaching fear and false needs for protection and guidance. By assuming the children are in some form of vague danger in the world, this will be what is taught in your actions, if reaching out with that in your hands. Instead, seek the details of each child’s hopes, dreams, and levels of creativity and trust them, allow them to run with it. Provide as much childhood as possible, full of fun and activity and expression. Many of you interfere with a child’s natural development of confidence and competence by seeking to undermine them with good intentions. A child is as intelligent in its desires as you are. The greatest thing you can do collectively as adults is rally for changes in the educational systems. This is one of our own agendas and we are working with many in the system to change this. It is one of our intentions to redesign the contexts for education. This then is the only real tangible action that can be taken in terms of “generations”. If it is not your “calling”, then your only tangible action can be in creating a sanctuary for your children, creating lines of freedom for their expression, acting as examples of trust in life. In truth, each generation continues to “have it better” than the last. This has been the case for some time. We would not be here otherwise, ourselves. There must be an element of prosperity and peace in the environment for us to work with a channel and speak to masses. Otherwise, all are tending to Needs. [MaryBV] I am under the impression that a person’s aura fluctuates and changes quite a bit. Do the roles in essence have certain signature colors? Does your frequency have any determination in the color of the aura? [Michael_Entity] Yes, you are correct. Each Role can be said to resonate with the colors commonly attributed to the Chakras. It takes some practice to specifically “see” that level, but it can be done. Frequency creates the “hue” of that color. We remind you that as you are Physical, it is impossible to “see” another’s Aura without the colors of your own being used as a filter. If you hold a red film up to yellow, you will get a completely different color than if you held up a blue filter to yellow. Keeping that in mind, you may have to calibrate or adjust your perceptions so they can be interpreted properly. We will conclude here.
  3. 12:31 PM 7/22/2012 MICHAEL SPEAKS Consumerism vs Citizenry Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. Barely, but here. We will continue to move more into focus as we deliver on the topic of choice. We understand the topic of interest to be that of the shift between what might be referred to as a paradigm of Consumerism to a paradigm of Citizenship, or Citizenry. This is, basically, the shift between a Young Soul Paradigm and a Mature Soul Paradigm, except in specific terms of how one's interactions in the world contribute to that paradigm, and not just how one experiences it. The levels of paradigm we describe by Consumerism vs Citizenry are levels most applicable to the environment of economy and resources. While any group is sharing a paradigm of Consumerism, the aim is primarily toward COLLECTING. While any group is sharing a paradigm of Citizenry, the aim is primarily toward CONTRIBUTION. A paradigm, here, is the larger context in which everyone is expected to participate, and is taught as being a meaningful or appealing value, both in the positive and negative poles of that paradigm. CONSUMERISM AND COLLECTING In the paradigm of Consumerism with its aim for Collecting, this value is regarded as meaningful and appealing, when the Collecting is done through hard work, exploitation, entitlement, investment. Any way to Collect. To take one's part. This paradigm is not good or bad, but simply another way of sharing the experiences of the world. However, when there is a paradigm for Collecting, the dynamic inherently implies a constant imbalance as each tries to take as much as possible. This paradigm, then, inherently brings with it poverty, extremes of Class, Racism, Slavery, Theft, and even violence, as the means for Collecting. This paradigm supports the entire spectrum between earning and taking, as long as there is an aim for Collecting. We will define "Collecting" here as an aim geared toward personal gain, meaning, motivation, fulfillment, satisfaction, craving, longing. Everything that is shared in terms of an economy and resource is subject to this spectrum. Those who do not wish to participate in that paradigm will be pushed to the edges of it, so to speak, and will "play by their own rules," but as quietly as possible so as not to bring attention to the breaking of rules set for that paradigm. As Consumerism is quite in line with the Young Soul, the Young Soul does quite well within this paradigm, and enjoys the spectrum in many ways. It is exciting, competitive, and, forgiving the pun, consuming. Regardless of Soul Age, a paradigm will be an insidious part of any fragment's life. Regardless of how conscious a Personality is, and how Manifested the True Personality and Essence, there will, inherently, be some level of the self that willingly or unwittingly "plays the game." Essence and Personality are not victims of a paradigm, but simply agree that if being born into a paradigm, there would naturally be some sense of it. It is already difficult, if not impossible, to escape the imprinting from a culture and society, even if the imprinting from caretakers is lifted. Therefore, it is more often than not embraced to some extent, even if the Personality is resentful of it. In this case, in order to "ride the rides" of this paradigm, then at least "some of the tickets" must be bought, if you will. It is rare, and certainly of no significant nobility, for an Old/er Soul to opt out of a paradigm that does not cater to an Old Soul. In fact, it is often just the opposite: the Older Soul relishes in the opportunity to call upon the "younger" perspective for new experiences from a broader perspective. Old Souls do not flock to the pastures for retirement and tree-hugging, though many do, but often [more] for the satisfaction of False Personality, than anything, in those cases. If Old Souls wanted to avoid the struggles of a paradigm, they know full well by now that all one has to do is wait for the cycles to turn, and a more comfortable paradigm will emerge. Instead, Old Souls tend to flock to the most challenging of paradigms for the sake of a more complete experience. It is of no coincidence that many can say, "If I knew then what I know now." A return to High School with your adult awareness would change everything about how your choices would be made. Essence gets to do that. The Old Soul in a Consumer paradigm is like going back to High School, and making choices from a more adult perspective. And it is never quite what was anticipated. Many Old Souls get through the entire incarnational cycle of lives without an Old Soul paradigm in place. No specific paradigm is necessary for any Soul Age to evolve. Your evolution is your own, and dependent only on your choices, and what you do with them, both as Personality and Essence. The shift in paradigm is moving, though, and living during a shift is always enticing to every Soul Age. Every global shift tends to attract nearly all fragments still incarnating. One of the reasons a shift takes "so long" is because there are usually not enough bodies to go around for everyone to be involved at once, so it is a gradual process that each gets to experience in unique ways that either passively or actively engages with it. [GeraldineB] that's interesting -- similar to when ISs manifest [MEntity] Geraldine, the Infinite Soul tends to Manifests directly in relation to a shift in paradigm. So the shift and/or the Infinite Soul is attractive. [GeraldineB] Oh, that's right, JC came in during the last shift [MEntity] Not all shifts must be accompanied by the Infinite Soul and the Logos. Only those that may be sensed as going terribly awry. [GeraldineB] I will have to ask you deeper questions on that during my Project [MEntity] Though it may seem as if there is a lot of leeway, there is an awareness on the scale of the Infinite Soul that can calculate the probabilities of devastation with either little, or no, recovery for the species. All fragments eventually get to participate in a Manifestation of the Infinite Soul (as it is part of the Soul Ages), as there will always be at least one parallel version of existence that is headed for devastation. In other parallels, a Manifestation has already taken place in the wake of devastating nuclear war, which was averted "here." [GeraldineB] yes . . .back in the 80s [MEntity] The Manifestation would have been around the millennium mark. Though the war was earlier, yes. For now, "this" parallel (and a great many of its parallels) appear to be doing well in terms of evolving the shift in paradigm. In the parallels that did not do so well, there were fewer Old Souls in bodies. It should never be presumed that one's mere presence does not make a difference. When we say "did not do so well," we do not mean this on the scale of Essence, as all of it is meaningful and valuable, but for the Personalities, "better" can mean the difference between painful suffering and comfortable growth. The shift now into Citizenry is one that is a move away from Consumerism, but not excluding it. No shift in paradigm leaves one behind, but finds a way to build it into the new one. CITIZENRY AND CONTRIBUTION Citizenry will not eliminate competitiveness and Collecting, but would move it to the side as an emphasis, and bring into focus a new aim of meaningfulness and value. Citizenry here would be defined by us as Conscious Participation. As we said, Citizenry aims for Contribution as the predominant value and meaning instilled for that society, but would include a wide spectrum for how this plays out. This can play out in the forms ranging among philanthropy, charity, mutual benefit, sharing, homogenization, global government, "one world." Citizenry corresponds to a Mature Soul perspective, which can be understood as the Baby Soul perspective, Exalted. The pressure to conform can be very similar to the Baby Soul paradigms, but with the aim for the benefit of each other, and not a central authority. The precarious key here is in deciding what is beneficial for all in a way that does not harm. It is a Mature Soul concept couched in Young Soul terms (or vice versa, for some). Citizenry cannot function well with the part of the phrase "do what thou will." [GeraldineB] LOL -- no, we're finding that out [MEntity] Unless that "will" is conscious in its awareness of impact on others. That level of consciousness awareness is one that does not evolve "overnight," though the concept and paradigm of Citizenry will have been in place long before that development. So that phrase is a helpful bridge, and has been in place for many for some time, in some form. As Citizenry gathers up a momentum of conscious awareness, the shift, ironically, moves away from "so long as it harm none," to "so long as it benefit any." This would mean that anyone who would be impacted by the choices and actions within that paradigm were somehow AT LEAST capable of being benefited. It is not presumed that everyone will share the same will, of course, but that the aim would be for Contribution, at the very least. When the aim is only for avoiding harm, choices can become clouded by fears, frustrations, guilt, defensiveness, etc., but when there is a realization that a choice may benefit more than just the self, the aim can tend to be light, fueled by enthusiasm, and creativity. [GeraldineB] Would GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) fall in the Contribution category as they purport to give larger crops due to being less susceptible to insect damage -- yet they cause corollary damage and some allergies [MEntity] Geraldine, such things would fall into the category of "benefit any," so long as there is actual benefit, and benefit that can be opted into or out of without the cost of another benefit. For instance, if this is the only choice for food, or if that foodstuff is not labeled for the sake of choice, then this is not considered a "benefit to any." [Martha] but Monsanto is trying to own the market and take away farmer's choices, does that outweigh the benefit? [MEntity] However, if without that option there is no other choice, then it would fall into a category of "benefit" for that group. Martha, your point supports our clarification that Citizenry, Contribution and Conscious Participation, always involves an expansion of choice, not a narrowing of it. This may be contextual, in that a starving group may find GMO to be its saving grace of benefit and expanded choice, while an abundant society with GMO imposed may not. However, the entire concept of GMO would have begun to fall by the wayside in a truly embraced paradigm of Citizenry, since this economy would lean toward a Resource-based economy, and would not require such extensive measures to create or sustain food sources. Issues of starvation begin to fall away, as well, since the sharing of resources for the benefit of more than Collecting becomes emphasized. Resources begin being looked at in terms of how they can help others, not in how they can protect, defend, and be withheld. Even the motivation for career and income move toward how one can Contribute, not just Consume. [brian] Michael, you said that the Young Soul aim might be described as COLLECTING and the Mature Soul aim might be described as CONTRIBUTION. For the sake of completeness, what themes might you use to describe the Baby Soul and Old Soul paradigms? [MEntity] Brian, that might be for Infant an aim for SECURING, and for Baby, an aim for CIVILIZING, and for Old, an aim for EXPERIENCING. To make it easy to understand, one could add "use money for.... _____" and fill in the aim. Old Souls tend to use money for Experiencing. Mature Souls tend to use money for Contributing. Young Souls tend to use money for Collecting. Baby Souls tend to use money for Civilizing. Infant Souls tend to use money for Securing. Of course, "money" might not be what is used, but whatever is the exchange of that economy. No matter what the dominant paradigm, a Soul Age will tend to "use money" for whatever the aim is for that Soul Age, even as they play by the rules of the dominant paradigm. For example, even in the paradigm of Consuming, the Old Soul will tend to gladly gather money, forgo money, spend money when it brings Experiences. MORE QUESTIONS: We will open the floor now to more questions such as these, as we know Troy must comply to a time limit in his current environment. [Bobby] my question was based on right now I feel like money to me is more about security. I suppose that really depends on what is going on in one's life at the moment as well as the major paradigm they find themselves in, correct? [MEntity] Bobby, as money is currently used within a paradigm of Consuming, with an aim for Collecting, then when one is not able to consume what one is used to consuming, or expects to consume, it can cause great stress. When there is no paradigm in place for Citizenry with an aim for Contribution, there is little to consider as a network of support for fluctuations in what one can Contribute. As long as there is a paradigm of Consuming in place, there will be a paradigm of lack, and the subsequent prompts for what is necessary to remedy that. If that might require help, there may be shame attached to it. If that might require enduring a great shift in what was expected or familiar for Consuming, there can be a great deal of fear provoked. The only remedy for the Older Soul is to INCLUDE its own paradigm as valid. In other words, regardless of income, finances, comfort, there is EXPERIENCE here. This does not mean that the Old Soul would embrace starvation because it is a glorious Experience, but more that the embrace of something such as that as simply being a rich resource of Experience, solutions can tend to come much easier. Embracing whatever paradigm is useful within the grasp of your Soul Age is helpful. This might mean embracing the paradigm of Citizenry, and allowing yourself to ask for help, and to do what you can to help, so as to create that circuit in the life. It will not negate the dominant paradigm, but can, at least, expand paradigms. Thus, expanding solutions, feelings, perspectives, resources. Another way to look at the situation would be in terms of drawing from your rich resources of Experience as a means for helping bring you back into a sense of security. It is not so much that you need to see the current situation as rich with experience, but that you have a bank of experience that is already useful. On the other hand, Security is one of the 9 Needs, and this can tend to be a theme of exploration, regardless of what economy or paradigm is in place. [Maureen] I know this is far off future, but ...Will the Resource Economy start with a Mature Soul world and move into a more "progressed" form in an Old Soul world? What will be the biggest "change" to experience from Mature to Old - especially for Older souls? [MEntity] The shift of economy for most Mature to Old is toward bartering. A resource-economy would have already been in place for this, as well as a sense of support for any individual's sense of Contribution. Contribution then feeds into Experiences. Foods and goods are not as valuable as experiences. Food and goods would tend to have become so freely shared that lack is a foreign concept, except in terms of experiences, and this is what would then be bartered, specifically in terms of how one might be instrumental in helping to aim for experiences. [Maureen] Do you have an example for us? [MEntity] There are many examples of this via what is called the Internet. A great amount of resources for expanding upon one's experiences is available there. And often in terms of barter, which is not always specifically negotiated, but implicit. Simple participation in the web site generated by each of you as "TLE" is an example. There are few, if any, conditions on what is exchanged, with benefit freely offered and received, with Experience as a great part of the aim. That is a working example of something similar that might play out on a large scale. [EricM] Bit of an overarching question, but Is this the first time humanity has ever experienced Mature as a predominant paradigm, or has it happened in the past (or alternatively, might it return to a predominantly young paradigm in the future)? I ask, as I'm trying to clarify how these shifts have happened (i.e. are they more linear or have they had cycles/starts and stops). [MEntity] It is not the first time, and it will not be the last, and while there tends to be a fairly linear cycling on a global scale, they are built from sub-cycles with those that may or may not be linear or obviously connected. [EricM] oh, and examples are appreciate as well [MEntity] Dominance of paradigm and Soul Age is entirely dependent upon those incarnated and participating in the world. Every cycle of "recorded history" tends to be a set of sub-cycles that lead up to a global manifestation of the average Soul Age of the entire Design. Most of what is currently understood as recorded history only maps the return to an emphasis on Infant and Baby, and then a shift into Young. We must conclude here for today, as Troy's time has come to a close in his environment. Good day to each of you.
  4. This thought popped into my head yesterday. What effect if any does the IM have on the rest of our local solar system? Would any caretakers near by or living on earth be affected? Does it affect the other physical bodies in the system? And then this morning I see this. Article Could be a coincidence. Just find it interesting with all the weird chaos on earth that the sun is being super chill right now.
  5. LIVE MICHAEL SPEAKS Open Floor Q&As MAY 26, 2013 Channel: Troy Tolley Ladislaus: Hello Michael. I would like to ask about the relationship of Greed Chief Feature to Self-destruction CF. How the first relates to the second, and what one can do if the energy turns pitch black and suicidal. That was my question. MEntity: Greed and Self-Destructions are methods of protection against one's fears regarding "having." Greed is enlisted as a means for protection against the fear of lack, while Self-destruction can be developed as a protection against the fear that the life is actually being wasted, that one is not even worthy of the life force that animates the self. Greed will seek to compensate for the lack by obtaining more and more, and will tend to fixate upon something that represents the potential for satisfying that lack. Self-destruction will seek to compensate for the sense of waste by constantly striving to earn the worth of having anything at all. Greed says that I am worth more than this. Self-destruction says I am not worth this (or this is not worth it). Ladislaus: Slightly paradoxical. MEntity: There are many degrees of manifestation of these Chief Features, and they range from the most literal and obvious to the most subtle and insidious, as with any Chief Feature. When one is consumed by the self-protection of Self-Destruction, there are two ways that can help to move through that "black and suicidal" state: One is to utilize the Positive Pole of the partner Chief Feature of Greed, which is to say that one would focus somewhere, somehow, on something for which one has an appetite. Anything. A great tasting food. A beautiful sky. A television show. Positive Poles of Chief Features are never "positive" in the sense that Overleaves have positive poles. This is because the Positive Poles of Overleaves describe a difference between an inclusive state versus an exclusive state. In Chief Features, the "positive" pole is relative because it is more inclusive, but it is still a state of division, defense, and separation. Using the positive pole of the partner Chief Feature of Greed, which is APPETITE, can bring one back into a state of participation. And this can help to serve the second suggestion we have, which is to WAIT. When one is in a "black and suicidal" state, the only option is to wait. It will pass. It WILL pass. It may return again and again, but it will pass. And it is not a conclusive state. Nothing is. This is a "heavy" topic that can be further explored, but we think these are insights and suggestions that can be helpful, especially if taken in while not consumed by the Chief Feature, and then called upon. If there is nothing more that one can do when in that state, repeat: WAIT, JUST WAIT. And do so. GreenLyon: Hello Michael. I am very interested in the Fragment in Siberia known as Vissarion ( and his following). I have a feeling that in this case " there is more than meets the eye". I'd like your brief take on his chosen path and philosophy. Is he a transcendental soul? thanks. MEntity: The fragment in question appears to be a charismatic Early Mature Priest-Cast Sage with a means of packaging delusions so that they are fairly useful, attractive, and generally harmless. He is not a Transcendental Soul. We refer to his Idealism as "delusion" here, only in the sense of its claims and conclusions. The idealism, itself, is as most idealism: a perspective that seeks to improve upon that which can be improved upon. When Idealism cannot be fulfilled, it can turn into Naivete, and either bring about failings or even disastrous consequences, or be repackaged in delusions that can help to sell the ideals. GreenLyon: hmm alright. so his claims for being enlightened rebirth of jesus are part of the charismatic idealist package? hmm MEntity: It plays upon the narrative of persecution, as well, for those who would refute his claims are clearly in denial, or not capable of recognizing the truth of this return. GreenLyon: haha this brings to focus my own naivete, as i almost/did believed him myself. this brings a lot for me to reflect on. MEntity: Of the many who have made this claim, this fragment appears to be fairly harmless, with "good" intentions. We remind you that your capacity to choose, to believe, and discern is one that you must cultivate, yourself, and consider our input one of many, and not the definitive answer. We share with you our perspective, and this will always only ever be another version of the truth, even if seen from a higher, clearer, more informed position; it is still only a version. Diane_HB: Michael, a lot of us in our 20s and 30s have had or are having trouble figuring out careers that are right for us. What suggestions do you have for how to go about choosing a satisfying career path? MEntity: It is always advisable to explore career options from two different angles: that of experience, and that of experiments. Experience gives you information based on your hobbies, inclinations, interests, fascinations, and all that those bring to you. Experiments include the obvious exploration of the unknown, either intentionally or unintentionally, but also includes giving a chance to various positions of work or study that are available and accessible that may not have been given a chance. The "Do what you love and the money will follow" is not always true, as many will attest. There must be an audience, a market, a demographic, a need, even if these are created by you, yourself, as part of a launch or nurturing of a career. Along the way of working with Experience and Experimentation, regardless of one's age, it is important to keep in mind that there will most likely be pressure to draw an income or sustain independence in some way while figuring out what one wishes to do. Doing what one must do, is not the same thing as doing what one will do. Though there are many ways to dispute, delineate, or deny this, there will always tend to be only the 7 broad categories of pursuit for careers as described by the Roles: CREATIVE, COMMUNICATION, GUIDANCE, HEALING, LEADERSHIP, LAW, and RESEARCH There are many combinations of these things, of course, and subcategories, but from this simplified breakdown, one can begin to help oneself discern a direction. Diane_HB: Leadership = Warrior and Law = King? or vice versa? MEntity: These may or may not correspond to one's Role (or Casting,) as there will always be imprinting, accessibility, need, etc. Artisan/Sage, Priest/Server, King/Warrior, Scholar Because the career of an individual, or source of income, is relative to Personality, using one's Overleaves as they fall on any dominant Axis or Axes can help more than one's Role. This is a good start for helping one with this process, though there can be more discussed on this subject, or more help on individual bases. carolynbe: Hi Troy/Michaels, I would like to know more about Mary Magdalene. Any information that you would consider important that would pertain more to our current paradigm. I am particularly interested in her role/connection with Jesus, how they worked/supported each other. Thanks MEntity: Though an individual will manifest the Infinite Soul, it is still a fragment, an individual fragment, who acts as the conduit for that manifestation. The life of the individual is not forced or formed by that Infinite Soul, but the choices, realizations, and actions of that fragment help to create the point necessary for the Manifestation. Those choices, realizations, and actions are certainly informed by a definite thread of awareness "direct" from Tao. However, the fragment incarnating is still Human, at least in this case. In most Manifestations of Infinite Soul, there is the necessity for the complete Support Circle of that fragment to be intact, active, and available, as well as (at least) one fragment who will act as "the savior" for that individual. The fragment known as "Mary" was the Anchor Position in the King's Support Circle, and was this individual Personality's "savior." There must be that one person who fully grasps and allows for the utter despair, fear, and confusion, as well as the profound bliss, wisdom, and enlightenment as it is experienced by that Human and individual Sentient hosting. Mary was that fragment for this King. The spectrum between "darkness and light" was allowed with her, and she presented to him the acts of permanent forgiveness, tranquility, redemption, and agape that was not found in any other relationship. For every Manifestation of the Infinite Soul, there is a "Mary." After the recovery from the Manifestation, these fragments went on to form a union and to live out a rather peaceful life in sanctuary, raising children. Maureen: Michael, I have the following question, and if it is quick (for you), was Mary Magdalene the Essence Twin of Jesus? MEntity: Yes. That is correct. ViP: hello Michael, I'd like to ask, regarding making choices, how to distinguish between choosing from Essence, vs choosing the path of least resistance. MEntity: That would be difficult, as they are often the same thing. However, it may be helpful to think more in terms of choosing AS Essence the path of most desirable flow. We say this because one never has to choose *between* Essence and a path of least resistance, and while one may choose the path of the most desirable flow, it will not necessarily be a path of no resistance. Choosing AS Essence simply means making the choices that appeal to you while grasping the greater impact of those choices to the best that one can grasp that. Choosing the path of greatest desire simply means creating a path by listening to one's quiet impulses, questioning the more demanding compulsions, and trusting yourself along the way. ViP: what if the lack of resistance itself is what causes the appeal MEntity: These paths are not so definitive as "Essence" vs "path of least resistance," but we can say that as one begins to make choices AS Essence, the level of resistance in the life tends to reduce. By resistance here, we do not refer to the level of challenges, effort, or obstacles, but to one's resistance, one's experience of pain, suffering, etc. There is a difference between "path of least effort" and "path of least resistance." Water cannot be faulted for its flow. Essence and Personality cannot be, either. It is natural. It is gravity. The path of least resistance, however, is not always the path of choice, and the path of least resistance is not always the path of least effort. Mountains are divided by the natural flow of water and its meeting with resistance, even as it follows its path of least resistance. However, water is always flowing toward the larger body, and it will cut through mountains to do so, and this is also how Essence functions. With that in mind, it can be helpful to consider asking which is the path of least movement vs the path of fulfillment. Which path seems to be moving you toward something greater, and which path seems to distance you further from that. "Something greater" can be defined by you. If you do not know of something greater, or if you have no inclination to flow, move, make an effort, or act on desires, then it can be helpful to LET yourself simply sit there in that, be with it, until you are done with it. Letting yourself be with that can often be the very state one requires so that one can fill again to a point where the flow returns. To help one determine how well one is choosing AS Essence, one need only look to one's relationship with Choice. If you refuse the practice of choice, then you refuse Essence. If you embrace the responsibility, effort, and capacity for choice, you tend toward navigation as Essence. From there, the resistance or flow of the path is fairly moot. Maureen: Michael, following on Janet’s question about C2E6 being a Resource Beacon, how would you describe Cadre 1 Entity 5 as a Beacon or an “open invitation …that allows for specific benefit to others”? MEntity: Cadre One, Entity Five tends to act as a Communication and a Guidance Beacon, but actively covers all Beacons to some degree. The others are covered to such a great degree that Communication and Guidance are only technically more pronounced <within C1E5>.
  6. Michael Speaks 011010 TOPIC CHAT (new format) Self-Karma MEntity: Despite the complexities that can be involved in Self-Karma, the actual concept, exploration, and resolution are quite simple. That is not to say that the process is "easy," but that describing these elements is fairly simple. First, we will define Karma as "any form of intensity (imbalance) as a result of interference to your capacity for Choice." Interference of Choice is not the only criteria for generating Karma. There must be an intensity, or imbalance, generated from at least one party, and most-often the party who suffered the loss of Choice. The sudden increase for capacity of Choice is also a form of Karma, if intensity is generated. We describe this as Philanthropic Karma, and this form of Karma "feels good," but it is Karma, nonetheless, as it interfered with Choice and generated intensity. When Karma is generated, "Ribbons" are formed as a means to track those intensities. Those Ribbons connect among the Instinctive Centers of all who are involved. It might be more accurate to describe these as "tuned frequencies" that do not lose track of the members of that frequency, but we feel that "ribbons" is easier to image. The resolution of Karma is in the "burning" of the "ribbon," or neutralizing that frequency. The burning of ribbons is always done through role reversal, either with the parties from each side reversing positions, or from the party who generated the karma reversing his or her own actions that generated the Karma. A simplified example of each might be: Reversing Positions = you kill someone, that someone kills you. Reversing Actions = you kill someone, you then save that someone in a later life. We realize that we have been sharing the details about our perception of Karma, but this is helpful in understanding your Self-Karma because much of the same dynamic applies. We will define Self-Karma as being "a dual position within that interferes with your own capacity for Choice, and generates intensity, or imbalance." Often these are also described as "Issues." ALL Self-Karma is contained within a single lifetime and does not carry over in the same way that Ribbons do among fragments. Self-Karma is generated by the Personality within the lifetime. However, Self-Karma can show up as patterns for an Essence, because Essence designs each Personality, and often the patterns of exploration sought by Essence generates similar opportunities across lifetimes for each Personality that tends toward certain Self-Karmic issues. If a Personality resolves his or her Self-Karma within a lifetime, that Self-Karma is usually not repeated, because Essence then has a completed set of new data from which to use for creating a lifetime. Since Essence learns through Personality, it can only progress beyond certain Self-Karmic patterns when a Personality finally figures out how to resolve the issue. That is not to say that a pattern does not repeat, but that it is rarely repeated. When we say that it is not repeated, we are speaking about a specific Self-Karma, but that issue may be a part of a larger category of Self-Karma, which we will explain in a moment. If you are alive, you most-likely have Self-Karma. Self-Karma is so common a development among Personalities that even the hosts for the Transcendental and Infinite Souls carried Self-Karma. However, in the cases of Transcendental and Infinite Soul hosts, the Self-Karma is always resolved within the lifetime. Self-Karma is generated in four categories of your life, which mirror the Axes of our Overleaf System. It would be more accurate to say that Self-Karma is generated in one or more of your four "bodies" that mirror the Axes of our Overleaf System: your Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual/Instinctive Bodies. These categories can help you to identify your Self-Karma by where, how, and when you find yourself divided in a way that interferes with your capacity for Choice. Self-Karma is often paralyzing in its effects. When we say "paralyzing," we include those uncontrollable compulsions that force a choice even when you "know" is not a choice you would prefer to make. We include non-choice, refusal to choose, or the fear to choose, as a means to suspend yourself between two or more choices, as forms of paralyzing. What we will share now is a simple exercise for identifying your Self-Karma in a way that allows for tangibility so that resolution can be made, if you choose to pursue such an endeavor. Draw up a chart in a way that creates the four categories, or bodies: Intellectual, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual. With merely a glance at your life, considering each category, it might be fairly easy to identify at least one Self-Karma from each category. You could translate each category into a way to help your examination, such as: Expression, Inspirational, Action, and Assimilliation areas of your life. Assimilation might be better understood as your "Learning" or "Comprehension," or the "Lessons" are of life. Another translation: my world view; my relationships; my body; my spirit. Questions to pose for each category, regardless of how one translates that category might sound something like: "What do I get the most upset about in this category?" Or "In this category, what experience repeats for me that keeps me from making the choices I want to make?" Or "In this category, where do I wish something else would change before I can make a choice that I prefer?" Or "In this category, to what do I tend to overreact?" Or "In this category, what triggers reaction in me?" Or "What frustrates me the most about myself, others, life in this category?" At first, your examination may bring up broad categories, and that is a good place to start, but you would eventually want to narrow it down to specific triggers or situations. For instance, you may feel that issues of INJUSTICE is a large context that carries triggers for you, but upon closer inspection, you may find that you are really only triggered when someone does not comply to your way of thinking, or agree with you, or celebrate your passionate stance with the same passion. This might indicate that your issues are not so much about Injustice, but about "Being Right" or "Being Superior." Once one has identified a Self-Karma, then the work of resolution can begin. Resolution is found when there is no longer a sense of division, and your choice is completely owned by you. We will give a very simple example: A fragment identifies that she has "issues" with her body image, detailing that she feels ugly because she does not lose weight, but does not do the work of losing that weight. This would fall under BODY, or Physical. The broader category would be "Body Image," but she might find she is triggered in instances where she is going to be social or intimate. Her Self-Karma then might be the division within that says she is beautiful just as she is, as long as no one sees her. Being "Beautiful As I Am" means to her to never having that concept challenged, so she remains isolated and secluded to sustain that version of herself. Being "As Beautiful as Others Prefer" would mean shaping the body into a new form, which means exercise, diet, and patience, but this is in conflict with "Beautiful As I Am," and to follow through in that direction might mean she really is not beautiful as she is, so reprimanding, self-punishment, self-hate, repulsion replace diet, exercise, and patience. She remains at home, or secretly isolated internally, even when in social situations. The resolution would come only when she MAKES THE CHOICE in one direction or the other, and allows herself to own that choice. If she chooses to "Be Beautiful As I Am" then it would require the work of self-acceptance, self-kindness, accentuating all that is felt to be beautiful, internally and externally, and to build upon that. She would celebrate the beautiful in those people and things that she knows as beautiful beyond any standard in entertainment or social media. She would allow for all forms of beauty, knowing that this is a subjective matter, and never something that can be standardized. If she chooses to "Be as Beautiful as Others Prefer," then she would own the steps necessary to go down that path, and begin a commitment to exercise, diet, patience, and a reality-check that she cannot transform her body to be exactly as someone else's, but that she can make it the best it can be. She would embrace the fact that she may not please everyone, but focus on moving her body into a state that is pleasing to herself. She is simply taking care of herself. In short: the Self-Karma is a division that could be described as "Accept my self as I am/Improve upon my self-image." The resolution is to choose one of those and to own all that goes along with that choice. The irony is that in the commitment to one or the other, BOTH are ultimately included; hence the resolution. Neither side of the division is left behind. Accepting yourself as you are automatically includes an upgrade to your self image. Improving upon your self-image automatically brings a kindness to the process that is an acceptance for who you are all along the way of your improvement. Improving yourself in your own eyes automatically improves your representation of yourself to others, thus improving yourself in their eyes, as well. Improving yourself in a way that others may find appealing often leads to clarity about what must be improved in your own eyes. When choosing a direction for commitment to resolution, it is often more beneficial and efficient to choose the direction over which you have the most control. For instance, taking the route of "Accept Myself As I Am" is far more within the control of that person than if she were to entirely depend upon the external factors for gauging her progress. Both paths could work, but this is why many teachings encourage one to start with the self, since that is where one has the most control, and is almost always guaranteed success. Choosing to go in a direction of lesser control that requires others to comply to your ideal is still a valid path, but a more complicated and challenging path, with less-likely successes. The more time and care given to your examination of your Self-Karma, the more quickly and easily the resolution might come because the solutions are often within the issue, itself. **************Q&A*************** Are there different gemstones with their frequencies that might be utilized to help neutralize the energies of these four self-karma categories? MEntity: If it is understood that these gemstones are merely a supportive energy, and not an energy that actually does the work for you, then there are stones that might help some fragments receptive to that energy. To understand how these work, it might be helpful to think of each gemstone as being a light of specific color, and when that light is shined into your space, it can highlight certain things. It is not that the stone is actually "doing" anything other than being itself. A flashlight in the dark is not magic, but it can certainly improve one's capacity for seeing. And so it is with such tools as gemstones. With that being understood, the most common stones available for helping support in the process of Self-Karma might be: Rose Quartz or Pyrite for Physical/Body Issues Amethyst Quartz or Citronite for World View/Intellectual/Expression issues Tourmaline or Jades for various Learning/Comprehension/Instinctive Issues Tiger's Eye or Azurites for Emotional/Relationship Issues These stones may help to highlight the areas prone to opportunities for resolution, but they will not resolve the issues for you, or soothe them. There is validity to frequencies generated from inanimate objects, especially from those directly of the planet, but as with any tool, it is what you do with them that makes the difference, not necessarily the properties of that object. A hammer is just a hammer until one picks it up to use with intent, and that intent can have a multitude of outcomes. How do you deal with cases where manifesting is involved and appears to interfere with the resolution? For example: If the woman above decides to get in shape, but then injures herself or gets into a car accident that hurts her back. How to avoid or get past that? I see it a lot. MEntity: The Self-Karma would remain, as well as the resolution, regardless of circumstances along the way. To make this clearer, we will use an example of a man who has lost his legs who feels he is worthless without being able to walk. The Self-Karma is not in whether he can walk, or not, but in how he experiences whether he can walk, or not. If he is divided to such an extent that it paralyzes his capacity for choice, then he has generated Self-Karma. If he embraces his experience, or if he commits to rising above it, then the Self-Karma is resolved. For the woman who has hurt her back after committing to improving the health of her body, she can still commit to the improvement of her health and body. When a commitment in one direction of resolution comes with great obstacles, or surprise obstacles, or challenges, the commitment itself must inherently make room for all of the possibilities of that path, or it is not a commitment. Is there a way of avoiding or lessening the chances of that happening in the first place? It seems to me that it happens when someone forces themselves towards one choice without being ready? You are correct that "forcing a choice" is still included in Self-Karma, as we described it as a compulsion. And that is a good point for differentiation: Resolution comes from EMBRACING YOUR CHOICE, not FORCING your choice. Forcing a choice leads to complications that compound the Self-Karma. Embracing a choice means absolute permission to explore that choice on your own terms at your own pace, and with an invitation to Essence, your friends, your loved ones for support in that choice. Forcing a choice is usually marked by intensity and often secrecy. Embracing a choice is usually marked by a gentleness and an openness without shame. That is not to say that embracing a choice would avoid any surprises, but that embracing a choice inherently brings the strength of adaptability. In addressing self-karma through another channel once, you told me to consider my greatest concern in life and I'll be on my way to identifying my self-karma... then you asked me "how satisfied are you with your response to friendship". Would you elaborate a little more on the why of that particular question and how it relates to my self-karma? MEntity: For examination on a broader level, we would ask about the "greatest concern in life," and this would allow one to find his or her most pressing issue/s. Following this with a question about relationships would help to identify a category. That question would have been asked if we suspected it may be helpful to look into your Emotional or Relationship Category for refinement of that exploration. Thank you, good evening! Could you please give an example of, and resolution to, a spiritual self karma? Would perfectionism be a spiritual self karma? MEntity: A broad example of a Spiritual/Instinctive Self-Karma might be those issues associated with Guilt and Shame. A specific Spiritual Self-Karma within Guilt or Shame might be in the experience of being an Old Soul among family members who are Baby and Young, and having to deal with this in a way that does not leave you feeling divided between "being yourself" and "compromising just to keep the peace." In that case, the choice would be between "being yourself" and letting others deal with that, or "Compromising to keep the peace" as a means of dealing with it on your own. The resolution would be in the fact that regardless of which choice you make, you are ALWAYS "yourself," and no context changes that, regardless of the facet you choose to bring forth appropriately or strategically. In an example you gave, - which is EXACTLY me, lol, and started with back injuries, are both options you gave equally valid for truly resolving the issue? Using that example, what happens if you improve yourself and then later on you end up backsliding or being injured, etc and are once again feeling overweight and unattractive? It seems like loving yourself as you are resolves the situation, whereas changing your body, while healthier physically, could be undone. Self-Karmic resolution is immediate and permanent and not based upon conditions. If the motivations for improving upon the body as a path to resolution is conditional upon reaching some conclusive state that will only THEN be satisfied, then it is merely a perpetuation of the Self-Karma. If one were to choose to improve upon the body as a means for reaching a state considered "beautiful," it would have to include kindness, patience, and a devotion to the self in a way that naturally translates into "beautiful as you are along the way." The embrace of the commitment to improve upon the body as a means to reach a greater state of beauty would mean that you are merely at one point in that spectrum of beauty, rather than its needing a finish line to cross. Another way to understand when one is in Resolution is when you know your choice is because you WANT to make that choice, not because you feel you HAVE to make that choice. "I HAVE to make this choice if I want to be beautiful" is not a choice that resolves Self-Karma. "I HAVE to accept myself as I am in order to feel beautiful" is equally imprisoning. In this case, it would be helpful to understand that the ideal of beautiful cannot be reached without creating steps along the way that are seen as beautiful to you. Much like building a brick house, it must be completed brick by brick. It is never helpful to deny that it is a brick house simply because it is not to a point where you feel you can live in it. For instance, the simple decision to "try to like how I look today" is a beautiful decision. It may not stick, but for now, it is beautiful. The more "for now" moments of beauty you extract from your experiences will add to the materials that build your ideal structure of beauty. The decision not to eat a certain way for the day because you feel this contributes to your better health is a beautiful decision, even if you do not choose that the next day. For now, it is beautiful. Those simple moments build into a matrix that helps to generate moments that are far more pivotal toward resolution. So you often surround yourself with 'conditions' when you are experiencing self-karma? MEntity: Oh yes. Depending on the extent and depth of the Self-Karma, the more conditional your existence. "I can be beautiful as I am, as long as I am invisible." Those "conditions" generate a false reality, and that is what gets exhausting, not the actual process of resolution. Sustaining a false reality as a means to balance the divisions within is literally exhausting. All Self-Karma can be resolved in an instant once the truth of the absolute superficiality and uselessness is comprehended. ALL Self-Karma are simply forms of self-discipline that have gone awry in the self-parenting process. Or put another way, generated during the Third Internal Monad. Is the majority of self-karma generated during or through the 3rd IM or are their other times/experiences that generate a certain amount of self-karma as well? MEntity: Self-Karma is almost entirely generated during the Third Internal Monad, and complicated or refined over the rest of the life. For instance: there may be the experience of being rejected based on appearance, which prompts one to be very concerned about appearance, which then becomes a divide within that acceptance is based heavily upon appearance, which then becomes specific to certain body parts, or spreads to include the entire body. So it might be useful looking at the experiences surrounding the 3rd IM in order to help identify some of the behaviours that are self-karmic? Find their genesis, so to speak, and understanding what has given rise to them, be able to put them into a more proper perspective? MEntity: It is not necessary to understand from where or when these were generated. It will never matter where or when these were generated, as it is the current "you" who make the choices now. It would be similar to trying to understand when, where, and why you have brown hair. It does not matter. You have the choice to embrace that color, or to change it. We pointed out the time frame of origin as a means to point out that many of these issues are "teen age" or "young soul" levels of issues, or even younger, and that their bearing has little validity or relevance to you as an adult or older soul. Self-karma is created by ourselves and not circumstances or others... MEntity: Correct. It is created when one interferes with one's own choices to the point that it generates a divide within. Thanks Michael. You've touched on some of this already, but here's my original question/s: Could you comment on how Self Karma tends to be experienced across all soul ages, or is it more likely to be confronted by us as we mature in soul age? MEntity: If you are alive, you most likely experience Self-Karma. Most Self-Karma is relative to the predominant Soul Age for your planet, or your current society within which you were nurtured. So there are links to Social/Cultural soul age? Relative...? MEntity: All Soul Ages experience Self-Karma, but it is true that there are emphases within each: Infant and Old tend toward Spiritual Issues; Baby tends toward Intellectual/Expression Issues; Young tends toward Physical/Body Issues; and Mature toward Emotional/Relationship Issues. Though Old tends toward Spiritual Issues, they are prone to taking on the predominant issues of the times, and can run that gamut of issues across the soul ages, depending on what is of interest for exploration that has never been resolved. Most Old Souls that we know of have yet to resolve Self-Karmic issues remembered from their Young Soul days and are finally "getting around to them" now. That is because the current society fully supports Young Soul issues involving appearance, body, health, etc. When most of you were in your Young Soul days, your "Baby" or Intellectual/Expression issues were most explored. We would also point out that now that the planet is technically Mature Soul, newer generations would generate their Self-Karma during the Fourth Internal Monad. In an Old Soul Society, these would be generated during the Fifth Internal Monad. The predominant Soul Age during the lifetime usually indicates when the Self-Karma is generated, and though it can also indicate what kind, it is not necessarily limited to that. Does this mean we would have to wait for society to catch up to work through mature and old soul issues? MEntity: No, we simply speak about the practicality of the times, since Self-Karma is generated and contained within the single Personality, which is most-often imprinted by the current society, but anyone can work on anything at any time. Oh, I misunderstood -- there are four categories of Self-Karma, but one only develops an issue within one category during any given lifetime? MEntity: No. The time frame for when they are usually generated is fairly consistent, and it can indicate the root of many issues, but could include issues from any category. In your response to another question, you mentioned that one must choose between being themselves and compromising to keep the peace. How do you accept that finding that compromise may never occur and to be accepting that your best attempts to rectify a situation will never be enough while accepting that the consequences of the failure of another will happen to them, without it creating the self-karma of guilt or shame? I seem to have this type of pattern repeating through the past five or ten years for me and I'd really like to break it somehow. MEntity: We see that is a helpful question that addresses the nature of resolution when it is valid. In this case, if one were to choose to compromise for the sake of keeping the peace and does not experience this compromise as an assault against one's being, but finds that compromise still does nothing, then the the point of Being Oneself is still intact, as it is clarified that no amount of compromise makes a difference, and that the issue was never about one's Being. From that space within the original resolution, it would be a matter of decisions based on what to do with these individuals, and not to do with oneself. This may lead to another layer of Self-Karma because it might get to the Self-Karma one might have about who "should love me, no matter what." Do you endure the suffering within their presence as a means to receive potential love, or do you remove yourself from those people who should love you. In short, it might move into issues about where love, and what love, is in your life. Is it more loving to remove yourself from the exhausting exchanges, or is it more loving to allow room for their lack of love for your presence as you choose to love anyway. In most instances where one feels one must continually endure the presence of another while feeling exhausted and even damaged, then the question is not about love, but about Rights. Could you explain further on your definition of Rights? MEntity: We will include our Map of Rights in the final transcript, but as an example: every fragment has the Right to Love and Be Loved, and this Right is either supported or removed in the process of a lifetime. So it might be a question of whether those who refuse to love have more of a right to your love than you do? Just curious about the obstacles to resolution of self-karma...what tends to keep us from resolving them? Are these obstacles different for the various soul ages? MEntity: The most-common obstacles to resolution are boredom, specialness, and crisis management: Boredom is the result of rejection of Essence, and like a dog with anxiety cut off from his sense of resource, can chew off his own skin to keep busy with distraction. Specialness is a result of rejection of Uniqueness, and spends all of its energy seeking constant external validation for any sense of value. Uniqueness requires nothing for it to Be; it is inherent. Specialness requires constant feedback. Crisis Management is a result of rejection, or distortion, of one's strengths gained over the lifetime. It becomes far more familiar and routine to manage crises, or patterns of issues, than it is to use those strengths for managing the creation of the life, and new patterns of freedom. Boredom is usually linked to Self-Destruction and Greed; Specialness to Self-deprecation and Arrogance; and Crises to Impatience and Martyrdom. Put another way, Boredom often perpetuates Intellectual issues; Specialness perpetuates Emotional issues; and Crises perpetuates Physical Issues. That is a generality, but it is fairly consistent, keeping in mind that there may be layers within a Self-Karma. Could you give an example of Crisis Management in the final transcript? I am not sure I understand that one. MEntity: We can give an example now: It is much more comforting and familiar to, say, manage the trauma and pain caused by your struggling to accept an invitation where you feel your appearance will be scrutinized, than to simply go, or not. Crisis Management vs Life Management. Crisis vs Choice. Crisis vs Creativity. Hello Michaels & Troy! Initially I wanted to ask WHY self-karma arises and why would we ever want to interfere with our own choices to the point of generating a divide, but I understand that the channel may be tired by now, so will ask instead if you could give an example of the most typical form of self-karma for an Old soul? MEntity: We can answer both: Why one generates Self-Karma is simple to understand if one does not see it as such an imposition, but as a process of learning that moves from the experience of duality and into the experience of a spectrum, or wholeness. In every instance of Self-Karma there is duality, and in every resolution there is a spectrum, or wholeness. Self-Karma generates from over-simplifying, and Resolution comes from embracing complexity. In every lifetime, every Personality is born an Infant Soul in perspective, and seeks to not only return to the greater perspective already reached in previous lives, but to exceed that. However, this process includes a process from Duality to Spectrum, so to speak, so none escape that process. There is no typical Self-Karma for the Old Soul. If the Old Soul lives in an Old Soul world, then the Self-Karma might tend toward Spiritual issues as "typical," but otherwise, the Self-Karma tends toward the predominant Soul Age of the planet or environment. However, for the sake of example, a "typical" Old Soul/Spiritual Issue could be said to be the resolution between the fact of the current Personality as it exists among all Personalities across time for Essence. Recognizing the profundity of how small one really is in the scheme of things while seeking to retain a sense of identity, contribution, and participation can be terrifying. This is why we say that Old Souls learn through Terror. END OF CHAT Map of Rights: The original map referred to in this transcript is not currently available, but the seven basic rights are well covered in OMW: Tending to Your 7 Basic Rights.
  7. Michael Speaks - Soul Ages and Levels (01/09/11) Troy Tolley, Channel [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here now. We will begin with the discussion on the topic of Soul Ages and Levels. We realize we have shared a great deal of information and insight into this concept, but every aspect of our teaching has dimensions that may resonate at different points in the life, and to different students and different times, so our returning to "basics" does not have to be a review, or rehash, but a new spiral or layer of that concept. One of the reasons we think it is helpful to return to the basics at various points is because our initial sharing of this teaching in the form that you currently understand it was shared in a highly generalized and simplified way, and through the perspective of the average Soul Age of Young at the time. Our teaching does not change, but the understanding of it changes depending on the perspective that is interpreting it. For instance, there is a very basic way to understand the Role of Sage, in general, and then there are the differentiation of layers or evolution that bring dimension to that Role. For example, understanding the Sage as a goofy, obnoxious, self-indulgent, talkative, attention-seeking Role is highly generalized and, though accurate as a single dimension of that Role, only describes the Sage as the average Young Soul might manifest the Role. The description, or dimension, of the Role of Sage as an Old Soul will include this Young Soul version, but age affects how a Role is played or manifested, and the Old Soul Sage is often nothing like the general description, or the Young version. Whereas the the Young dimension of the Sage can be a clown and an attention-seeker, the Old version is the wise child whose emphasis is more on the integrity of communication and meaningful exchange, than on the attention that it would bring. And so it goes that the Soul Ages carry within them dimensions that might be filtered or highlighted by your own Soul Age. So, for instance, the Young Soul to an Old Soul looks and feels and is experienced quite differently from how a Young Soul would experience another Young Soul. What we will do today is discuss with you the Soul Ages as they may be experienced by our Students, who are more often Mature and Old, and this may help build upon the generalized concept. Your questions will help us to shape the information more relevantly. First, we will mention the underlying pillars for Soul Age that are relevant regardless of perception: Soul Age is an Essence's self-measurement for EXPERIENCE. Nothing more. Soul Age is an Essence's self-measurement of Experience based upon that individual Essence's agenda only. There is no one, or no thing, monitoring this beyond that single Essence. To elaborate: one fragment's movement through a Soul Age may include completely different experiences than another fragment's experiences through that same Soul Age. That is because Soul Age is a measurement of evolution/maturity of the Essence, and any experience can be used to propel that evolution/maturity. Soul Age is ONE INTERPRETATION of the evolution of experiences of Sentience, but is not a singular map that all find relevant or meaningful. It is a map for older souls, and is useless to most before that level of maturity. There are other maps used by younger soul ages. In other words, sharing this map "with the world" would not solve the problems of the world, nor would it encourage awareness beyond the capacity that is already present in younger Soul Ages. Presuming that this concept is as profound a map for the young or baby soul as it is for the mature or old soul is like presuming that a map of Disney Land is as useful and meaningful for the toddler or teen as it is for the adults. We can go further to say that even many adults, or older souls, may not find the map useful or meaningful. Continuing - Soul Age is not a map that is imposed upon Sentience, any more than the aging body is imposed upon a Personality. It is simply part of the nature of evolution and maturity. In other words, there are no requirements for that maturity and evolution, only markers. Soul Age is a map that we generated from learning about how our Essences learn and evolve, though that evolution was already long in place before the map was generated. The map of Soul Ages is cyclical, and not linear, despite the apparent progression. Regardless of Soul Age, EVERY Personality is born "reset" to an Infant Soul status of consciousness, and must, if the Personality chooses to do so, find its way back into whatever Age and Level of consciousness and maturity the Essence has reached previously. To some extent, the same could be said for the Essence at every new LEVEL within a Soul Age, and especially at every new Soul Age. For the Personality, this may make sense, since the vehicle is completely new; a new brain and body that must adjust to and share the life with Essence, if it chooses to do so. However, for every new Level, Essence also "resets" and cycles back through what it has learned to that point, and must then build upon that, much like the Personality must regain consciousness over the lifetime to a point that can then draw upon Essence's history. Before we elaborate further, we will take up to 3 questions relevant to what we have shared so far. ***QUEUE OPEN FOR 3 QUESTIONS*** [Question] "Cyclical, not linear" - I visualize the "levels" as being in line with each other, e.g. all 6s "above" each other - a spiral MEntity: That is "exactly" how it is. We qualify the word "exactly" because we mean it only in terms of a visual interpretation. That is a fair and accurate visual. When one is in the 6th Level of any Soul Age, all other 6th Levels are activated and explored. That "activation and exploration" are on an Essence level for the most part, but would also be relevant to which lifetimes tend to be resonant to that lifetime. We think some insight might be gained from the recursive sequence of what has come to be called the "Fibonacci Spiral." [Question] I would like to ask for an elaboration of Essence resetting when a new level is achieved within the same lifetime, i.e., as XXX did. Is this why she is recycling through earlier levels as Essence resets? MEntity: That "resetting" is relevant to what we have come to describe as the Internal Monads. There are Internal Monads that the Physical Body and Personality build through, and Internal Monads that Essence builds through. Every Level of Soul Age is a pass through 7 Internal Monads. Every Personality's progress through its own Internal Monads contributes to the progression of Essence through its own Internal Monads. Every Personality starts over with the First Internal Monad in every lifetime, no matter how far a previous Personality has progressed in a previous life. Every Essence starts over with a First Internal Monad in every new Level, because each Level is a completion, or cycle through, 7 Internal Monads. To help clarify: Every Personality goes through a progress of "waking up" within a lifetime because it is a completely new lifetime. Every Essence goes through a progress of "waking up" within a new Level, because it is a completely new Level. A simple metaphor might be that Essence entering a new Level from a previous Level is like an evolving Personality might enter a new relationship after having been in a previous relationship, or moving to a new city after having lived in a different city before. It is not that all is lost, so much as that all that has been learned must now be applied in a fresh context. [Question] How does one explain the soul that remembers a prior life under 5 years of age? Did these essences choose to remember their soul age? MEntity: It can take UP TO 7 years for a new Personality to embrace and bring through, so to speak, Essence, but for the older souls, that time is often much shorter. The greater the level of maturity or consciousness that Essence brings to a new life, the greater the resource that the new Personality can access, if it chooses to do so. Depending upon the culture and imprinting that is the environment for the new Personality, the child may not only bring Essence in more quickly, but that child's filters may also allow for those "memories" to flow freely. In some societies, such as some within India, reproductive imagination is encouraged in children and they are "allowed" to voice memories that defy reason. In other societies, such as in the United States, those memories are not encouraged, and creative imagination is encouraged over reproductive imagination. Every lifetime, regardless of the fact that it is new, with a new body, and new Personality, will always be built upon the Instinctive Center of the "previous" lifetime, carried forth like a disc from one body to the next by Essence. That Instinctive Disc, if you will, is the mini-Akashic Records of that particular Essence, and depending upon the level of consciousness accessible to the new Personality, can be read and accessed by that new Personality. [Question] Follow up: how do we create a stage for the child to bring in essence and allow memories to flow freely? MEntity: There is no real way to create that stage in a way that prompts the memories, but there are ways that one can encourage the exploration of those memories when the child begins to speak of them, if he or she does so. A child will either speak of them, or not, depending upon that Personality's personal process of regaining consciousness. If the environment is open to that, and the Personality speaks of these memories, then the validation can occur. However, to prompt a child to speak of past life memories, rather than simply allow for that child to speak of them if he or she does so, can often lead to false memories, confusion, and delusions. In short, simply paying attention and being open is enough. Responding to "Dracula": The impact and extraction of knowledge from experiences is subjective, but the markers are static. [Question] Static, not "objective"? MEntity: This might be understood through the metaphor of passing through a city that has specific streets that will crossed on the way through, but different speeds and vehicles may be used to pass. In addition to that, some may rest, some may crash, some may backtrack, some may sight-see, but all of those variations will not change the terrain. We chose the word "static" because, though the markers may remain in place, even the interpretation of them will be subjective. Much like the fact that a city may have a definitive terrain, but many maps to highlight various ways through it, depending upon the interest of the one choosing the map. We will continue with the topic and return to questions in a moment. We have already mentioned this in response to questions, but we will elaborate here on the Soul Age process: One Internal Monad is a level of maturity, awareness, consciousness gained by a Personality or multiple Personalties over lifetimes; 7 Internal Monads = 1 Level of a Soul Age; there are 7 Levels within a Soul Age; there are 7 Soul Ages for Essence. An Internal Monad is a process of resolving a division; a kind of return to wholeness that is greater than the sum of its parts. For instance, the 1st Internal Monad is the resolution between Physical and Essence that is "life." By the way, just "being born" is not necessarily a completed 1st Internal Monad, but we will elaborate upon the Internal Monads in another discussion. Understanding that Soul Ages are built from these processes of resolution can help one to see the vast beauty and magnitude of what it means to evolve, growing from fragmentation, through resolution, and returning to wholeness. Every Level then is one layer, or one dimension, of fragmentation "healed" for Essence, or more accurately put, "regained." When your Essence chooses a Role, it carries forth its own kind of "disc" into that new Grand Cycle of lives as that new Role and new sentient species, but in every other sense, it fragments itself and loses all "memory" of anything "before." Therefore, it could be said that every fragment is in a process of collecting itself back from the universe in which it is exploring. In the same way that we exist as fragments of Tao that eventually return, so are each of you fragmented "out" into your Grand Cycle "ahead of you," and then the compulsion toward wholeness propels the cycle. In a very simplistic and crude description, every Essence "hides" fragments of itself throughout the universe, and the process of evolution is the recovery of those fragments. That process of recovery is different for every Soul Age. For the Infant Soul, this process comes from tangible contact with the world, a kind of feeling around in the dark, and relies greatly upon TOUCH as the navigating tool. For the Baby Soul, this process of recovery comes from extremes of experiences, a kind of tight-rope walking that can find most of itself in every fall from the rope, relying greatly upon BALANCE as the navigating tool. For the Young Soul, this process of recovery comes from opportunities and investments, or indulgences, toward its greatest idea of itself; a kind of constant following of a frequency or tone, making HEARING one of its primary tools for navigation. For the Mature Soul, this process of recovery comes from recognition and empathy, finding and recovering extensions of the self that reside in others, making SIGHT a primary navigational tool. For the Old Soul, this process of recovery comes from pleasure, reunion, happiness, and play, because it can now recover the parts of self that never stopped to enjoy so many things along the way, making SMELL/TASTE a primary navigational tool. When we associate these senses with the Soul Ages as navigational tools, they are not always so direct and literal, but often they are. For instance, in a Young Soul society, music tends to blossom and evolve as a primary medium because "hearing" is so pronounced. Other Soul Ages enjoy music, of course, but for other reasons. For instance, in the United States, the "music industry" is heavily populated by Young Souls, and Young Souls are attracted to that medium of recovery in droves. The phrase "marching to the beat of a different drummer" is a Young Soul phrase because Identity is so important to the Young Soul. This is NOT to say that music is synonymous with Young Souls, but that Young Souls tend toward SOUND, both literally and figuratively, as a means of recovering fragments of Essence, or finding themselves, so to speak. Young Souls are often the loudest among you. A Mature Soul may use music to explore himself, express, or heal himself, but not necessarily as a way to recover or find himself. As your world moved into Mature Soul consciousness, you can see the shift from Radio to TV, for instance, or from music to videos. Even the phone is on its way to being replaced by video conferencing because the Mature Soul uses SIGHT as a means of navigating for recovery of itself. The Old Soul recovers itself through remembering how to enjoy living and being in a body, so two very primitive senses are called upon: smell and taste, which are fairly dependent upon each other, and help the body and Personality toward that which feels good. Smell and Taste affect the entire system that is the Body and the Personality, bringing a synthesis when allowed. In other words, the more an Old Soul allows itself to enjoy, love, accept, and live through its body, the more it recovers its fragments of self and returns to a wholeness. Briefly, the Transcendental Soul uses Orientation and the Infinite Soul uses Relationality as navigational tools for the recovery of fragments. Of course, on the scale of the Infinite Soul, those fragments are all Essences relative to that species of Sentience. Another way to understand the Soul Ages from a student's perspective, and not necessarily as a generalized perspective, would be by seeing the polarities of the Soul Ages and how those may manifest through a Personality. To accommodate the limitation of time for this chat, we will quickly share those: The Infant Soul manifests Positively as INNOCENCE, and Negatively as DISSONANCE. The Baby Soul manifests Positively as REFLECTION, and Negatively as REJECTION. The Young Soul manifests Positively as ACCOMPLISHED, and Negatively as ENTITLED. The Mature Soul manifests Positively as PERCEPTIVE, and Negatively as PROJECTIVE. The Old Soul manifests Positively as INCLUSIVE, and Negatively as EXCLUSIVE. Though we can elaborate upon all of these, we will quickly say that the Mature Soul, when manifesting Positively, is capable of seeing beyond the obvious, the logical, the superficial, and does not require "reasons" for what is known. It simply Perceives. It can truly SEE. The Mature Soul manifesting Negatively loses its capacity to Perceive and simply Projects, turning everyone into props and players for his or her own drama, never truly seeing others because of the preoccupation with seeing (finding) the self. The Old Soul manifesting Positively is Inclusive because everything and everyone is experienced as a part of the greater whole, including all of the previous Soul Ages within itself. This leads to an adaptability that allows for finding parts of the self in places and people it never would have thought of on its own, if you will. This Old Soul can draw upon its previous tools for navigation at will because it has accepted those tools, and will use them appropriately to navigate or understand those in younger Soul Ages. Everything is experienced and interpreted as "food for the soul," so to speak. The Old Soul manifesting Negatively become Exclusionary, aligning itself only with the "like-minded," seeking refuge and intimacy only those who feel "safe," and even then keeping a wall of isolation around the self as part of the interaction. This dependence upon the condition of safety never allows the Personality and Body to enjoy the life to the fullest, often resorting to the forming of secrets, imaginary relationships, and the equivalent of soul masturbation. Keep in mind that the Negative Poles we describe are a part of the spectrum and process for any term we are describing, and do not indicate what not to do or be. They simply describe the more limited end of that spectrum, as well as the end through which all will enter in that context. For instance, ALL Old Souls will go through an Exclusionary phase before it will move into an Inclusionary phase. That is natural. [Question] You mean within a single lifetime? MEntity: ALL Mature Souls will move through a Projective phase before it can Perceive. That would depend upon the individual, but for the most part, yes. Every Old Soul within each of its Old Soul lifetimes will still have to regain the consciousness of that Old Soul awareness, and that means the Personality would go back through a phase of Exclusion before Inclusion. As every Old Soul in this "room" can attest, if there is an honest assessment, the Exclusionary phase is all too familiar. We will open the floor for questions, but will end our responses in 15 minutes to accommodate our channel's and students' time limitations. ***QUEUE IS NOW OPEN*** [Question] You said in an earlier chat that Religion was the playground of the baby soul and Politics was the playground of the Young soul. What are the equivalent structures for the other ages (especially Mature Soul)? My guess is "Community" MEntity: We could say that RELATIONSHIPS are the playground of the Mature Soul, and IMAGINATION is the playground for the Old Soul, and THE UNKNOWN is the playground of the Infant Soul. By extension, "Community" would be included in Relationships. [Question] Hello Michael Could you elaborate, or give pointers as to (learn) how to access our mini-Akashic disc you mentioned? MEntity: The greatest direct access each of you have to your Instinctive Centers/Akashic Records is IMPULSES. Impulses are prompts that stem from the Instinctive Center in a way that each fragment eventually learns to read/interpret, and trust. Impulses are not the same as Compulses, as Impulses always include Choice, whereas Compulsions feel as if one has no choice. Impulses will always lead the Personality along paths that are a part of the higher pattern of its existence, and of Essence. Those Impulses are directly from one's Instinctive Center and directly relevant to the current lifetime in some way. Impulses are not indications of a "right" way to do something, or a "right" thing to do, direction to go, choice to make, etc., but simply indicative of possibilities relevant to what is active in those personal records. [Question] Would that be what feels like that "little voice inside" - same as intuition? MEntity: Yes, that is often how Personalities interpret the Impulses, however, there is a difference between Intuition and Impulse. Intuition is a synthesis of information gathered from various senses and sources that then must be interpreted, whereas an Impulse is a kind of immediate Knowing. For instance, one might use Intuition to help decide which city or part of city to move to, or which home "feels" right, but an Impulse would be the Knowing that it is time to move. It could be said that Intuition can be a navigational tool for fulfilling an Impulse. [Question] I am 7th Level Old and my husband is 7th Level Mature -- I have been thinking for some time that this is not a coincidence -- from the perspective of our soul levels discussion today and in a way that would be relative to everyone -- please comment. MEntity: That would be valid, Maureen. Fragments will often find themselves in association with, relationship with, attracted to, repulsed by, those who share the same LEVEL, but different Soul Age. This is part of the process for a fragment to cycle (back) through a Level. Though an Essence may be a 5th Level Old Soul, clearly having moved beyond the 5th Levels of the previous Soul Ages, it does not mean the value of revisiting or exploring those levels within is meaningless, concluded, or lost. This is part of the spiral we described earlier. For those who did not get a question in for us, we can suggest posting your question to the forum where this transcript will eventually be posted, and then it will be there for Troy to offer to us as he can for our response to be added. We must conclude here. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  8. January 28, 2018 Note: Today's questions were pulled from Feedback Request: State of the Planet 2018. The questions were collected into a document, sorted into similar questions, and ultimately some were modified and combined based on Michael's initial statement. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Janet: Michael, do you have an opening statement or should I post the first of our questions? MEntity: Though Troy had his own idea for a more coordinated and organized presentation of our information regarding "the state of the planet," we are quite comfortable with the organic unfolding of insight and information from your questions. We will start with a statement first, of course. Most years come and go and contribute to the myriad paths that Sentience will take in its exploration of consciousness and creativity. Some years become the result of a trajectory of patterns that create what we refer to as a SEQUENCE. A Sequence is a strong trajectory created from cumulative effects of choices leading up to the Sequence. A Sequence still has a great deal of variation and variables, but far fewer than before. If a Sequence is left on its trajectory, it will lock into what we refer to as a VECTOR. A Vector is the highest probability for a certain direction or outcome or result. Think of it this way: If a car is driving at 25 kilometers per hour and headed toward a wall 20 kilometers away, there is a great deal of choice and variables remaining that could steer the car from hitting the wall. If the car is going 75 kilometers an hour toward a wall that is 1 kilometer away, it is similar to a Sequence and while there are plenty of chances for redirection from the wall, but many choices will still lead to a crash. If a car is driving at 100 kilometers per hour and 100 meters from wall, it is fairly certain to be on Vector for a crash. 2018 is a Sequence year. There is too much force and momentum of trajectory for it to be "just another year." It is directly aiming for several "walls." This is not as ominous as it may sound. It is growing pains. 2018 brings with it a State of the Planet that is leading toward global unification, "one way or the other." The Mature Soul Age is here. And the ideals of the Mature Soul will be implemented in ways that start from the Negative Pole. This means that unification could come in the form of a common enemy, common challenge, common crisis, common ground, common enlightenment, etc. At this point the patterns seem to point to common enemy or crisis because drama is deeply appealing to Mature Souls. The State of the Planet at this point is all about this negotiation toward what would bring the greatest commonality. Even if that commonality is forced or false. In a Young Soul world, any forced or false commonality falls apart when patterns return to "normal." A tornado destroys a town and it comes together like never seen before. Rebuilding completes and the bonds dissipate. A progressive President is elected to represent common leaps of evolution and acceptance but it all falls apart once the symbol is out of sight. In a Mature Soul world, forced or false commonality are given far more consideration. So even as 2018 may begin to reveal forced or false commonality, it is something that can be built upon, and not just a placating and fleeting state. Building upon the Turning Points of 2016, the "walls" toward which humanity is "driving" at such high speed are the walls of Energy Resource, Consumption, Waste Management, Climate and Environment, Information Management, Social Intelligence, and Diet. Each of these categories have a "wall" that will be hit in 2020. 2018 and 2019 are the Sequence years that will determine the 2020 Vector. This is not a doomsday scenario we describe, and your 2018 and 2019 and 2020 may look like any other year at the time, but they look different from the future. They are the years that made the difference. We will open the floor now to our students, beginning with Janet, and cover as much as we can. We will likely explore this broad subject of "The State of the Planet" in two parts. *****QUEUE IS NOW OPEN***** Janet: Michael, I have the list of all questions at the moment. First, can you speak to the current probability for the Infinite Soul manifestation in or around 2020 and are there any Transcendental Souls preparing the way that you could point out? MEntity: The current probability is at 68%. The Transcendental Souls are all in play and at work across the globe. We will compile a list for Troy of known Transcendental Souls that can be validated, but there are many who will remain unnamed or difficult to identify. For this Manifestation, the Transcendental Souls clearing the path are working in smaller pockets to bring the deep social change rather than taking on larger populations. They are using different tactics than in the past. There is no need for grand stages that get one voice out to the masses. This time there is no need for that because there is a social and technological network in place that can allow the influence of one voice to become the voice of many. That being said, we will point to those we can identify for our students. Troy will need a different focus for that delivery. Janet: Because people are questioning this in the peanut gallery: can we confirm that the probability is in fact lower than previously given? And here is the next question: What type of ‘common enemy or crisis’ would be possible? Contact from non-terrestrials? Major climate-related events? Notable astronomical and/or astrological events? Nuclear events or wide-spread war? Global impact of a major medical event (e.g., catastrophic flu)? MEntity: It does fluctuate. It is lower at the moment. Until it is 100% it is not 100%. The top 5 common enemy or crisis scenarios are in no particular order: CLIMATE - food shortages, diseased supplies, drought, fire, flood, extreme weather, heat waves, water shortages, etc. WAR - Russia successfully exploits the weaknesses and fears of tyrannical or trusting nations. NON-TERRESTRIAL EVENT - discovery and proof of non-terrestrial life; intelligent contact with non-terrestrial life; indisputable evidence of off-planet technology. POWER OUTAGE - catastrophic outages of energy supplies in the form of fuel or electricity in large geographical locations and over great lengths of time; and CRISIS OF CONSCIOUSNESS - a mass shift away from irresponsible consumption and defenses and a wave of surrender to a Greater Good. Keep in mind that this is not a time for nurturing anxiety and dread. We cannot stress enough that this sounds far more ominous than it is likely to be. Regardless of these "walls" that humanity is heading toward, you have a great deal of wisdom, creativity, experience, and maturity for how best to respond and recover. Janet: Are there differences in how the entry into the Mature Soul age appears outside the US? What can those in "safer" locations do to help support the transition from Young to Mature? (Ie: living outside the USA & East Asia, and away from those areas most prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, deadly heat waves and catastrophic crop failures). MEntity: For those ahead of the curve, so to speak, of the Mature Soul Age, there are still heavy Young Soul factors at work in local or accessible parts of the world that can be addressed. Any issues regarding inequality, exploitation, overconsumption, etc. can be addressed with a focus on continued progress and evolution. Any efforts to improve community, resources, education, etc can simply be continuations of what is already in place. There will be world events that touch even the best-case scenarios of community and country, but beyond that, it will always contribute to planetary and sentient progress however local your efforts. In other words, regardless of how comparatively "better" your area of the world may be, the world is no longer able to sustain isolated worlds within the world. Even the most progressive and safe and sound of countries will be contributing to the anchoring of harmony through either nurturing what is already in play, or by tending to blind spots and issues that can easily be missed with "life is good." Janet: What role is China playing in the shift to a global Mature paradigm? Is there any chance of substantial social reform in its near future? MEntity: Social reform will happen. It is at a 98% probability at this point that a Young Soul paradigm will be in full force within 25 years, giving rise to great shifts away from Baby Soul values and repression and toward a rise in independence, feminism, creativity, innovation, etc. Many Young Souls have gathered in China and the Baby Soul culture simply cannot remain sustained. The deep imprinting of respect for history and elders will help the transition to be more gentle and subtle over time than as an uprising. Young Souls in power individually or on a small scale can often wreak havoc, but Young Souls in power as a group and on a larger scale can bring out the best of Young Soul qualities. There will always be Positive and Negative Poles, of course. In a Mature Soul paradigm, there is even greater likelihood of the best qualities implemented. For example, a reckless corporation can easily continue to be reckless in a Young Soul paradigm even if the corporation provides services and goods that are popular and necessary. In a Mature Soul world that same corporation can still provide services and goods that are popular and necessary but there is a level of social awareness infrastructure that can make or break a business if it does not consider the consequences of its actions. So Young Souls can still be competitive but compete for patrons who support better quality of life actions. This would be true of superpowers that are coming from Young Souls. So to answer your question, China could easily set the standard for how best to serve its people quality of life and this would satisfy the competitive edge and still participate in and support the Mature Soul shift. Janet: Will there be any breakthroughs in the next few years, or at least movement toward a breakthrough, in terms of how we handle our garbage? MEntity: Yes. It is inevitable at this point if humanity remains on track for unity. There are several solutions at work to be posed for wide-scale use on current masses of waste, but the most effective and lasting solutions are likely going to be a combination of reduced waste through better packaging and enhanced recycling processes that use "everything" and put all waste back into the system. There are small-scale working prototype cities at work that already successfully eliminate all waste in terms of necessity for discarding and storing, and returning all waste back into the system where it can be used again. This practice is more in keeping with "nature" and how forests work, for example. People are not forests, of course, so they will require a different kind of ecosystem. In the past, it was assumed that people could simply count on the ecosystems of other life forms to take care of human waste. That is not possible for any great length time. In a Mature Soul world, the necessity for Humans to own the responsibility and processes of the Human ecosystem comes into focus. It is often thought that it is more "natural" to exist within and participate with the ecosystems of Earth along with other creatures and living things, but Humans (sentience) are a different system. Sentience must, eventually, own its position of responsibility for itself within the greater ecosystem, and move away from dependence upon it. That is the way of the Mature and Old Soul. We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. We will elaborate further on the State of the Planet either in the format Troy has suggested to us, or through your continued Energy Reports. We have much to say about the years ahead, but there is no urgency or emergency. Goodbye, for now.

    Infinite Souls Manifest

    [Excerpt from a private session for Maureen on August 15, 2013] Maureen: Would you elaborate on the following statement you made on the Wholeness of Soul course: “Regardless of Soul Age, there will be truly “enlightened” Personalities within each Soul Age, relative to that Soul Age.” MEntity: First: in terms of "enlightened" lifetimes/Personalities, these tend to come in your 6th Level of the Soul Age. It tends to be the pivotal lifetime that helps shift into the 7th Level for that Soul Age. By "enlightened" here, we mean that the Personality loses the conflict between rationale and intuition. The conflicts between rationale and intuition tend to be at the heart of lifetimes where the Personality is asleep, or parts of the Personality are asleep. Rationale is the part of the Personality that is developed from tangible, linear, relative experiences and imprinting, while the intuitive is developed from comprehensive, holistic, and transcendent experience and empathy. Both are necessary for the Personality (and Essence) to navigate a lifetime, but these can be in conflict with one another in all or some parts of the life. When the battle between "what I know" and "what is wise" is shifted toward resolution, enlightenment cascades. Keep in mind that we do not disparage "what I know," and do not find that "what is wise" is helpful without what is known. But every fragment can look at his or her life and see that there are elements that refuse to awaken because of this conflict. Maureen: Is there any co-relation to becoming "enlightened" vs having the ability to be or become a Transcendental Soul? MEntity: For example: one may "know" that it is okay to live however one wishes to live, but there is the "wise" part that begins to comprehend the consequences of those choices in how to live. This is how one evolves. One gains experience upon which to build what she knows, and then learns to extrapolate from that by using wisdom. You would be correct, Maureen. The individual who embodies his or her entity, or hosts the Infinite Soul, will have worked to resolve, or will have resolved, all conflicts between the rationale and intuitive. Maureen: And the Transcendental Soul ...considering that it is experienced at the 7th Level? MEntity: The Transcendental Soul tends to find this as the fuel for the impulse to bring change, whereas the fragment who would host the Infinite Soul finds this as fuel for complete surrender. Maureen: I see... yes. MEntity: A Transcendental Soul would not have "levels" in the same way that we delineate the first five Soul Ages. It is true that there are Levels, but only one within the Physical Plane. Maureen: They would just "manifest"? MEntity: Transcendental Souls are born. Infinite Souls manifest. However, they do function in similar ways for much of the life. The Transcendental Soul gains access to the Entity only upon manifestation of his or her own Essence as representative. A Personality as Transcendental Soul can reject this access to Essence, as any Personality can, but it is rare. It is much easier for the host of the Infinite Soul to reject manifestation than it is for the Transcendental to reject the Essence. The reason for this is because the Infinite Soul must always have a host "on hand" for potential manifestation, but the manifestation is not always necessary, and so it is passed up, and because the Personality will always trump potential manifestation, there must always be "back up." However, the birth of the Transcendental Soul is planned quite specifically, and "everyone" is in on the plan, so it tends to unfold as planned, even if altered by various choices of the Personality. A modern example of the passing up of manifestation of Infinite Soul would be in the fragment known as "Elian Gonzalez," who was one of several children opted in for hosting when it appeared that it might be necessary. ### end of transcript Note: You can discuss this transcript within the original post.

  11. Michael Speaks at the TLEGG 2015:7 Metaphysical Strengths & Living Without FearSeptember 12, 2015, 4:00pm EST (Note: Minor edits for clarity) TRANSCRIBED BY ERIC FROM THE LIVE VIDEO 7 Metaphysical Strengths TRUST -Familiarity +Natural (Server)RESOURCEFULNESS -Extraction +Abundance (Artisan)COURAGE -Endurance +Responsibility (Warrior)COMPREHENSION -Specialization +Enlightenment (Scholar)EMPATHY -Extrapolation +Transcendence (Sage)CHARISMA -Manipulation +Alignment (Priest)CHOICE -Reaction +Participation (King) [MEntity]: And we are here. [MEntity]: We understand that Troy has asked us to speak on both topics that were originally scheduled. This is Idealism at work. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: We will do our best to cover as much as we can in the time that we have here with you now. But as you know, we have access to you beyond this venue and we can always pick up where we left off. [MEntity]: So what we’ll start with is an exploration of what we’ll call the seven metaphysical strengths. First we will describe what we mean by “metaphysical” in this context. [MEntity]: In this context, we mean that these are strengths that are inherent within you: that you come into this life with, and into every life with. What is different about these strengths over other sets of seven that we describe is that these always start in the positive pole. As you progress into your life (you take on your imprinting, you collect your experiences, you navigate your life) you forget these strengths and you begin to move from the positive pole down into the negative pole. [MEntity]: But what is nice about these strengths is that there is nothing negative about them in the sense that they are “bad.” In fact, all negative poles are not inherently bad, as you know, but in this particular case of a set of seven, the negative poles are still beneficial. In the same way that the seven chief negative features have a positive pole that is actually not positive in the traditional sense of the word, but positive in the sense of more expanded than the negative pole, the negative pole of these strengths is simply a more restricted, more focused end of that spectrum of strengths. [MEntity]: These strengths are what you will use to relate to other people, to navigate the life, to build your psychic capacities and all other senses that go beyond even the normal five senses of which you are immediately familiar with, such as your paraverbal communication (your capacity to read body language without having to know that you are doing so) and so forth. [MEntity]: The sequence that we will share these seven strengths in is a sequence in which each builds upon the other. So if you do not have this base strength it makes the strengths that are build upon it less stable, less strong, and more difficult to sustain. (0:04:50) [MEntity]: The first strength, then, that you come in with that is a metaphysical strength – and we mean this in the most literal sense of the word – is TRUST. [MEntity]: Trust is inherent in you. It is not something that you develop. It is something you lose. The positive pole of Trust then, in this case, is +NATURAL. There is a natural trust in you, a natural inclination to trust. It is far more natural for you to trust than it is to not trust. It is unnatural to distrust (and by “unnatural” here we simply mean that it is usually in some way a response to defense, a means of defense, a response to fear). [MEntity]: In the negative pole is -FAMILIARITY. Another way to describe the negative pole would be -HABITUATION. Habituation or Familiarity is the trust that you have right now as you sit in your chair and do not expect it to break because you have gained experience in that realm of trust and it has become habit to trust. It’s natural for you to trust, but some of those in the negative pole – the areas that you trust out of habit – are unconscious. They are not a conscious choice to trust. You trust because it has become familiar. [MEntity]: Do you understand the difference? [Audience]: Yes (0:07:02) [MEntity]: The second metaphysical strength then is RESOURCEFULNESS. Resourcefulness is your capacity to use what you have at your disposal to benefit your life. All of you come into the life with that inherent Resourcefulness. That Resourcefulness is forgotten, or lost, or taught out of you. [MEntity]: A lot of times (as you may see as we progress through this sequence) once you have lost your capacity or are losing your capacity to Trust, you stop using your resources as well. You stop using your inherent Resourcefulness. [MEntity]: The positive pole of RESOURCEFULNESS is +INNOVATION. You become creative with what resources you have. You make up new functions for what you have. This is a strength that you have that you may have forgotten or may forget. [MEntity]: The negative pole is -EXTRACTION. This is where you force something to work in a way that might not naturally work, or was not intended to work, or in a way that is not necessarily as beneficial as it could be, especially if you are extracting from others or from an environment that is being depleted. [MEntity]: When you’re in the positive pole, there is no depletion in the process of resourcefulness. In fact, the positive pole could also be described as Abundance, Prosperity. (0:09:28) [MEntity]: The third metaphysical strength is COURAGE. You are naturally courageous. We have to smile (not us, but this body in response to our observation) at the fact that you would not be here if not for your courage. And we mean that in the most literal sense in that it takes a great deal of courage to be in a body, to get through a lifetime, to navigate the lifetime. [MEntity]: In the negative pole, this is called -ENDURANCE. So as you forget your courage – the more you forget that inherent sense of trust and resourcefulness that builds your courage or feeds into your courage – you start to feel as if you are simply enduring. This is still courage. You will get through it. You will get to the next point. [MEntity]: But the positive pole is +RESPONSIBILITY. This is your capacity to respond to life rather than to endure it. Are you recognizing these within yourself and seeing— [Audience]: Yes. Definitely. [MEntity]: What we suggest as we share these are that you look at the spectrum that you are hearing from us and see what comes to mind for when you are at one end or the other in terms of the polarities. And also make a note as to whether that particular strength is one that requires some attention. (0:11:45) [MEntity]: The next strength then is COMPREHENSION. This is your capacity to make sense of what the hell is happening. It is your capacity to sort and put into perspective the experiences that you are gaining. You are able to take from those experiences and build upon them. [MEntity]: The positive pole of this, then, is +ENLIGHTENMENT. Enlightenment is when you build a structure or perspective that helps you make sense of your life. It is not permanent: it can change. But +Enlightenment is that philosophical structure that you begin to build from your experiences so that, as you gain other experiences, you have some way to understand them. [MEntity]: The negative pole is -SPECIALIZATION. Specialization here is when you become quite eccentric: very focused in an area of life that you do very well in, but cannot function in other areas of your life. You may excel in the area in which you have chosen to specialize – the area in which you have chosen to comprehend or find it easier to comprehend – but you have no sense of responsibility for these other areas that may be challenging, or more challenging. [MEntity]: So you can see that these are not positive and negative in the sense of good and bad. One is simply more expansive while the other is more focused and restricted. (0:14:08) [MEntity]: The next strength then is EMPATHY. This is another inherent strength that each of you has. Empathy is the capacity to understand, beyond your own experiences, those of others. [MEntity]: The negative pole here is -EXTRAPOLATION. This is where you can only understand what others are going through if you have gone through it yourself. You can extrapolate from there. [MEntity]: One moment… [MEntity]: The positive pole here is +TRANSCENDENCE. This is the capacity to transcend the limitations of your experiences and immediately understand those of others, regardless of species, race, economic status, geographical location, nationality. [MEntity]: These are strengths that you come into because of the grand amount of experiences that you have as Essence. As you can see, each of these will require greater and greater return to your manifesting of Essence, your embrace of Essence, for you to access these positive poles. [MEntity]: When you are first born, these are there quite strongly, quite naturally, quite presently. They become forgotten as the personality activates and you start navigating the life. But as Old Souls you start to crave that return to Essence, and by extension crave that return to your natural states of metaphysical strengths. (0:17:10) [MEntity]: The next strength is CHARISMA. The poles will help you understand what we mean by CHARISMA here. [MEntity]: The negative pole is -MANIPULATION, and we do not mean this in the negative sense that the term may imply to you immediately. We mean it in the same sense that one would manipulate clay. One would have to forcefully shape an object to the desired state. This can be in a negative sense, and used in a negative sense, of course. But we mean it in a positive sense because Charisma helps bring that out in others and sometimes that Charisma is what brings them to you to help shape them. [MEntity]: You each have natural Charisma and the capacity to use that to manipulate. Another word that might be used here is Teach, Guide, but in the context of Manipulation there would be an intended effort. [MEntity]: The positive pole, though, is +ALIGNMENT. Your Charisma is not used to manipulate or to shape another person (and we do, again, not mean that in a negative sense or a harmful sense), but Alignment allows another person to do that themselves, to do that work themselves. [MEntity]: Living your life becomes a state of Charisma. Your living your life as a model to the degree that you feel as a high standard, or to your ideal, becomes its own state of Charisma that teaches others and allows them to then align with that if they choose to. In the negative pole, there’s a little bit more work involved, and effort, to do that shaping. (0:19:39) [MEntity]: And the final metaphysical strength (we wonder if any of you will be surprised) is CHOICE. All of you are born into your lives with the strength of CHOICE. It is incredibly difficult, regardless of how many extraordinary and extreme circumstances you can come up with, to take away your capacity to choose, even if that choice is narrowed to a place that is not pleasant. You will always have a choice, even if that is an internal choice. [MEntity]: The negative pole here is -REACTION. Your reactions are choices. They may be subconscious, they may be defenses, but they are choices. They are your choices. Owning your reactions is owning your Choice. [MEntity]: Owning your Choice can help you then to move into the positive pole of +PARTICIPATION, where you participate in the process of Choice, where you no longer simply react to the stimulus of your life, but you act along with the stimulus of life and you create the stimulus of life. [MEntity]: As we said at the beginning, Choice is inherent in each of you, and our Teaching emphasizes this greatly. We aim our Teaching towards that top tier of these seven metaphysical strengths because, if you work on the ownership and responsibility of Choice and the participation of that tool (that inherent strength), you are automatically working on all of the others up the pyramid, so to speak. [MEntity]: You do not have to start there. You can start wherever is weakest in your seven. Many of you need to return to Trust. Many of you need to go back and look at how natural it is for you to trust and how painful it is to not trust. [MEntity]: By saying that it is natural to trust, just as an aside, we are not saying to be stupid. We are not saying that you should put yourself in danger. You know who to trust and who not to trust. That is a very different thing from turning off the capacity to trust, to putting life in a position to earn your trust. [MEntity]: Once Trust has been damaged in one situation, it does not mean it is true for every other circumstance. Turn to the next circumstance and trust. Let yourself trust. This will allow you to have access to your resources and so on up the ladder of the metaphysical strengths. [MEntity]: If you are working on your psychic capacities, your healing capacities, your careers, your relationships, working on these seven metaphysical strengths helps you to bring Essence back in, bring life back to everything around you and in you so that you can get where you want to go. [MEntity]: What we will do now is turn over the floor before continuing on to more on the subject, and if you have questions you can pose them to us. (0:24:30) [Cyprus]: No questions. Please continue. [MEntity]: Then we will ask you questions. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: Look at the list that we have shared with you and ask yourselves (now that you have these from our perspective): how often you allow these strengths, how often you consciously turn to these, how often you squash them, how often you dismiss them, how often you shun them. We invite you to share that as a part of this dialogue with us, and we invite your trust as you expose yourselves to the group with your assessments. [Cyprus]: Anyone? Ardis. [Ardis]: Going back to the original question before. It came…mine came delayed, so it’s not personal, but a clarification on number six, Charisma, in the positive pole. Would you say that, when you’re in +Alignment, it inspires? [MEntity]: Yes. Yes, some of you may have noticed these are correlating to the Roles. So the correlation runs from Server to King. These strengths are not particular to each role. They are simply a correlation, because that is what we do. We correlate and we put together a system so that you can mix and match and gain insights by looking at other factors. [MEntity]: So understanding how Servers function in the world and how Artisans work in the world (and so forth) can help you to understand Trust more, can help you to understand Resourcefulness more. If you look at your Role and its correlation you may find that there is more of a challenge or an ease with the strength correlated there. [MEntity]: If you look at your Casting, you may even find more insight into what is most difficult for you. Casting tends to indicate where you may have, shall we say, the most issues. Not necessarily: you can look to your Goal, follow it up the axes, to see if there is insight there. You can translate your entire profile to these seven metaphysical strengths and see which ones stand out the most. You can play with this, but that is all just added insight / added dimension to understanding it. [MEntity]: So, going back to your question, Charisma then relates to the Priest and its capacity to -Manipulate or bring +Alignment through inspiration. So yes. [Nick S]: This is just for the sharing. I was thinking about in the past that Resourcefulness was probably the one where I felt I needed to place my attention on more pre-Fourth Internal Monad, and definitely Choice as well. But then I feel really comfortable…I feel like I’ve worked on all of these in the past five to seven years and they all made complete sense to me and I feel much safer because of my acknowledgment of these strengths post-Fourth Internal Monad. [Comment]: I guess that also makes…if you feel what they say, that makes your Trust really solid. [Cyprus]: Astra [Astra]: Okay, how does one trust fully? What does that actually look like? That’s the thing I have the hardest time with and it feels like you’re stuck in all other areas when you can’t. [MEntity]: The easiest way to understand how to even get started or get back to the state of Trust, and returning to a natural state of Trust, is to stop anticipating so much danger. It is that anticipation of danger that will question your capacity to trust, will question the capacity to trust another person, question the capacity to trust a choice, to trust whatever it is that is being anticipated – or within the dynamic and equation of what is being questioned and anticipated – with fear. [MEntity]: So to begin to return to the path toward a natural inclination to trust is to, first, stop anticipating the dangers as if they are always true, and two, to actively make the choice to do so. [MEntity]: We will point out here that Trust (we have said this before) is based on your experiences. Many times you will go into a new experience presuming it is going to be like an old experience, and if you have decided it cannot be trusted, then you will not trust the new experience. [MEntity]: We have emphasized over the decades the importance of experiential differentiation, which is the capacity to say that, even though this looks very similar to what I have experienced in the past, it is not the same thing and, therefore, it is okay for me to trust this until I cannot or until I should not. Because it is okay to withhold trust when there is a danger. But to not trust when you only THINK there might be a danger, you are cutting off your capacity to trust and, therefore, all the other strengths begin to weaken. [MEntity]: Did this answer your question? [Astra]: Yes [Cyprus]: David [David]: Yes. Trust is definitely the one I have the most problem with or the biggest problem with, and it does correspond with my casting (Server cast). This springs from my past wounding and I’m quite sensitive, so that’s where the wounding came from. But as a result, I don’t trust as much as I use to. But I’ve noticed that, when I completed my Fourth Internal Monad, I’ve stopped anticipating danger as much. It’s a work in progress; I’m not where I want to be yet, but it’s getting there. I just wanted to share. [MEntity]: It works. [David]: Yes. (0:33:25) [Kasia]: I’ll share as well on Empathy, and specifically on the area of extrapolation and years of the dealing with “The only way of understanding someone else is to entirely immerse yourself in their experience” to such an extent that I have trouble understanding how to get to the +Transcendence. [Kasia]: So I have a question in terms of like you did with Trust. What are some key insights into getting into +Transcendence? [MEntity]: To answer this question for an older soul is quite simple: presume you have been there. That is an immediately relieving state to consider when trying to understand (empathize) with a situation, a person, a scenario that you have not, in this lifetime, experienced. Going into +Transcendence is accessing your experience as an Essence. We dare say that even the ugliest and difficult scenarios and people that you see around you, you have been. [MEntity]: So the first place to go is to presume you have been there, at least as an invitation to not block the capacity to transcend the limitations of the experience in this life. Do you understand? [Kasia]: Yes. [MEntity]: There are some very difficult people in your world, and very different people in your world who have had very different experiences, but each of you here have probably been there at some point. That presumption is one of the safest presumptions you can have: that you have been there in some lifetime or another. That is a place to start. [MEntity]: The next step that you can do then is to aim as close as you can to the innocence: to look beyond any of your biases, limitations in experiences, to get to the core innocence of another person regardless of how you would respond to things or how you would act in things / regardless of how you have / regardless of what you remember of past lives or all of those scenarios that have accumulated for your Essence. You don’t have to remember all of that. You just have to remember the innocence. [MEntity]: If you can get back to that innocence - the core of another individual or a group of individuals or a series of events that another has experienced – it’s a beginning. It’s another step toward that positive pole to empathizing. Because regardless of how each of you is behaving, how each of you are navigating, the one thing buried deep within each of you is that innocence. That’s something that is not lost even in the most “evil,” difficult people on the planet that you cannot relate to. [MEntity]: This does not mean that you give permission. This does not mean that you agree. But at least it’s a start toward your capacity to get back to that strength of Empathy for when it will truly, truly matter. Do you understand? [Kasia]: Yes. Yeah and I think in -Extrapolation it becomes very overwhelming when you realize that you can’t be everyone, you can’t immerse yourself in every experience. This is much more manageable. So actually, yeah, I can see how it works. [MEntity]: You see a lot of how Empathy works in the younger souls because, as we said, these are inherent in every fragment, every person, every lifetime. If you look to the younger souls, in particular, Baby and Young, every person who is different from them (or challenging) is difficult until it is someone they know. That is how extrapolation works. [MEntity]: This is why children are born gay to religious parents, for instance, because within the capacity of those parents who may have always judged the range of sexuality that they did not understand…once there is an individual with which they can extrapolate from once they have that connection very close in proximity, they are returning to Empathy. [Cyprus]: I’m going to share as well since we’re talking about Empathy. I had my Role, my Casting, and my Goal is all that…relate to that, and I think it’s the easiest and the hardest at the same time. So I feel like I do struggle the most with it, but at times it’s also the easiest. Whereas I feel, when I look at the other ones, that I sort of evenly disperse managing those in a different way. Empathy definitely is the most extreme for me and the most constant back-and-forth. [MEntity]: Yes. [Cyprus]: …thanks. [MEntity]: You will loop. Your polarities are not necessarily linear, but they can be cyclical to extremes. If you are already an extremist, this will be more obvious. [Cyprus]: Anyone else like to share? Kerrin? [Kerrin]: I wanted to bring up and share a session I had with Michael through Troy last summer about a situation I was in. I was asking about agreements: two agreements I had and a path I had been currently on that wasn’t…a job situation I was currently on that I was too stubborn to shift off of. I had asked about agreements with Michael. He brought up that I needed Courage. “Courage was the key,” you told me and that I was more Resourceful and had a broader range of what I could possibly do than the little thing I was focusing on. [Kerrin]: I guess my question to you is now that I…you didn’t tell me to shift, but I figured it out on my own that I had to shift and look bigger and have more Courage. But now that I’ve done that, now I feel like I’m in -Specialization, the negative pole of Comprehension. Is that a natural state? Once you kind of get your crap together on the one prior, then you shift into the negative pole of the next one to work through? Does it kind of build up on your own as you work through things? [MEntity]: That is…yes, that is one way you could describe how it works because what you will do…if you have wounded or are weaker on any of the tiers, you will (for lack of a better way of describing this) zigzag your way up to return to your sense of +Participation in the choices of your life. Yes. [MEntity]: More accurately it could be described as a spiral up. But yes, you will build upon one and then move into the most focused end of the next before expanding out. Was that your question? [Kerrin]: Yeah [Cyprus]: Maureen [Maureen]: I just had a comment. When I…because I am warrior cast and Courage is easy I think, but the -Endurance reminded me of “gritting your teeth” and just getting through something and I think how I move it into +Responsibility is I go right to Choice. I think “I have a choice. I always have a choice. I don’t need to do this, I don’t have to do something.” Is that how one does that? [MEntity]: You most certainly can, because you have that choice. You can aim toward the top, and when you do so, whether consciously or not, the steps in between (for lack of a better term) will cascade in alignment in some form. That is what we were speaking of at one point in what we were sharing here: that we aim towards the emphasis on Choice because this will inherently activate the work of these strengths below that. So yes, it works just like that. [MEntity]: However, knowing these steps in between can allow you to be a little bit more conscious of how it's working, because we do not simply like to point you in a direction and then you wonder how you got there. We can share this with you so you can look back or look forward and see how you got there. (0:45:10) [MEntity]: Yes [Cyprus]: Pat [Pat]: I’d also like to address Courage and Choice. As you exemplified in the beginning, that we all have courage, for example, by being here in the body and…the first nearly 25 years of my life it was very hard for me to accept that I actually even am here, that I am in a body, that I have a gender, and so on and so on [unheard]. This is when I made a choice that either I stay or I don’t, and that choice led to where I am. It’s shifting now a little, but since then have been in -Endurance: I’m enduring it because I have decided to be here, right? So I better really do this. Otherwise, I’ll just have to come back and do it again! [Audience]: Laughter [Pat]: No, but really. This is my decision, right? And you know what? I’m now getting into some kind of part of my life, of this lifetime, where I want to feel more enjoyment. It doesn’t mean that I don’t feel enjoyment, but, you know, I’m neither happy nor am I unhappy. I’m just doing it, you know? I like the ride. I like myself. I love people around me and so on. It’s not totally neutral. But, I lack the softness of bliss in me. And I wonder, how could I kick into that? You understand what I mean? [MEntity]: Of course we do. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: Your strengths that you have emphasized are valid in that you are enduring and you are reacting. Though these are strengths, they are very restricted, compared to +Responsibility and +Participation. Once you are (and knowing this may help) making the effort to participate, responding to life rather than enduring it, that joy, that pleasure, that happiness will inherently begin to blossom out not just in figurative ways but in physical ways. Your body will feel better. You will feel better in your body because you are not just enduring and reacting. Do you understand? [Pat]: I do [MEntity]: These may seem like simple keywords, but there is a great deal of depth in each of these. As you aim for the positive poles, do not presume that you are doing something wrong or missing out on something by having recognized that you are in the negative poles. [MEntity]: You are doing okay. You are on your way. But, you can aim differently. You can aim towards that positive pole that you now have a word for. [MEntity]: One of the reasons why we use so many words in our teaching is because having a word for it helps you have a way of navigating. So look at those words that are in the positive pole and the negative pole, and state that is being described in the center as the strengths, and keep aiming toward that positive pole. [MEntity]: You will NOT stay in the positive pole. We wish to emphasize this for everyone that it is not a static state. You will fluctuate, you will cycle in extremes (such as the sage has described). So there is not an end point to the process. There is only the experience of that range. But aiming for those positive poles can help you bring that joy that you are looking for. [MEntity]: We will say that it is not something that you find. It is something you generate once you have found that momentum in those positive poles. [MEntity]: We realize that we cannot fix that with such a short response, but we can point you in a direction so that you can. [Cyprus]: Jana talk loud. [Jana]: I wanted to ask if there’s a correlation between addictions and the strengths. It feels like, obviously, they’re related to Choice. But because Choice builds on the other strengths, I would like some insight into how these strengths relate to one being addicted to something. [MEntity]: We will ask for clarification in terms of addiction to patterns… [Jana]: More like drugs or substances. [MEntity]: Once one is addicted to anything that will take one out of the life – out of the process of easier access to these strengths – they are still there, but you must do the work to reach for them, and that work is not often easy to do alone once one is addicted. [MEntity]: We may not be answering your question. We will circle back to it in a moment if we are not. But once one has recognized that one is addicted in a way that is “putting one to sleep” to the extent that one cannot even fathom these strengths as being accessible, you have to turn to those strengths in others. You must allow the strengths of others to help you. [MEntity]: What you have done that that point is that you have taken a step into Trust, and, as you know, that is the foundation through which all of the others can then be built upon. So if you are addicted, and it is something that is difficult to control, and you need help, let yourself be helped. Ask for that help. Allow the strengths of others to be a part of that dynamic, and inherently your Trust will kick back in, or at least your awareness of it and your capacity to use it. Then your Resourcefulness, you Courage, and so forth…and you can build from there to move out of the control of the addiction. Did this make sense? [Jana]: Yes. [MEntity]: Did this answer your question? [Jana]: I think so. [Cyprus]: Is there anybody else that has another question before Astra goes a second time? [Ann]: I have a quick one. I just want to validate. I’m scholar-cast and I’m also growth, which has to do with Comprehension as well. A while ago, and I don’t know the exact channeling, but you gave me information that I tend to sort of just blank out experiences or something about sort of blanking things out that don’t make sense, like I just leave them and don’t even try to process them. I only kind of process those things that I feel okay about, or feel like I can. Would that be an example of -Specialization versus +Enlightenment? [MEntity]: Oh yes, [Ann]: Okay. And then, I will add, what does one do about that? [MEntity]: Go back. [Ann]: Go back? Okay, there we go. Thank you. [MEntity]: Revisit. [Ann]: Revisit. Rehash. [MEntity]: Pick up the threads. Often those who have difficulty with that strength have many threads lying around, figuratively speaking, to which they can then follow and go back to comprehend and build upon. (0:55:40) [Cyprus]: Oh, do you have a question? [Nick S]: Mhmm [Cyprus]: Okay, go ahead. [Nick S]: I can see where, like…you said that the casting has a tendency to be challenging in terms of the strength, in relationship to the strength. And I can’t really see…my casting is Priest, and so…I can’t really see where I’ve had a challenge with the strength of Charisma, whether I’ve been in -Manipulation or +Alignment. So I guess I’m asking, whichever way you can answer this format whether you can just personally help me understand how that might have been a challenge, or just in general how they could be challenges. In general. [MEntity]: We will ask you then, do you or have you wished that those around you would do as you expect them to do so that it would make it easier for you? [Nick S]: Definitely. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: This is -Manipulation. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: This is one form of it. It can be silent. It can come out in behaviors. It can come out in patterns. It can come out in effects that you do not intend and inspire changes that you may not have anticipated, but changes nonetheless that are coming from that state of -Manipulation, provoking. This can be challenging for those who have the struggle with this particular strength: to recognize how much of an impact their presence has on another person in a way that provokes and manipulates in a way that is not necessarily fulfilling the vision that is being held. There is a gap there often. Do you understand? [Nick S]: Yes. [MEntity]: NEXT [Cyprus]: Okay, next. [Astra]: I have a chief feature of Martyrdom and have struggled with addictions. I was hoping to get more on the Courage ‘cause it feels like that’s sort of the opposite of helplessness, and how…especially how that can be used. I didn’t hear a lot on that, so maybe just an elaboration and maybe how to get out of that. [MEntity]: Out of…? [Astra]: Helplessness into Courage, I guess. [MEntity]: Helplessness and Courage are not mutually exclusive. Courage, as you can see if we phrase it correctly…when you are helpless, you often endure. So you are still pulling up Courage. [MEntity]: But when you move into +Responsibility, then you are responding to what it is that you are feeling helpless in, under, around, and you will use that Courage to make a difference, to act (because Courage, of course, aligns with the Warrior). So you take action when you are feeling helpless. Sometimes that action is explosive, and sometimes it is more directed. But the key there in accessing your Courage is taking action, not just sitting in helplessness, not just enduring. Do you understand? [Astra]: Yes [MEntity]: Did this answer your question? [Astra]: Yes [Cyprus]: Okay I guess we can move on then. No one else is raising their hand, so… [MEntity]: Yes. We cannot see. [Audience]: Laughter [Cyprus]: I know, that’s why I said it. [Comment]: That’s funny. [Cyprus]: Yeah, they’re a hoot. (1:00:40) Living Without Fear [MEntity]: We will then tie in the “Living Without Fear” concept from here by first saying that you cannot do so. [Audience]: Laughter [Cyprus]: Session over! [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: There will always be fear in your life, and this, we know, goes against the grain of many teachings. But there will always be fear in your life and it is not an ugly thing. Unwarranted fear is where the problems come in; fear of things that are not threatening you, or out to get you, or harm you, or take from you and so forth are where the trouble begins. [MEntity]: But fear is simply information. It is informing you on where to look / keeping your eye out. It is informing you that you have been hurt in certain areas and you would like to not be hurt again in that way, whether this is in a most basic, survival sense (such as walking off a cliff) to a deeply wounding relationship that you do not want to have repeat in your life. [MEntity]: So fear is helpful. But what it looks like as you move through your life and begin to pay attention to how much fear is based on lies, misinformation, habits, and you begin to only listen to the fear that is informing you (or even when it is informing you when it’s unwarranted that you can then say “thank you for that information and I now know and I will move forward with my choices,”) you being to open up more to the Agape, to the love, to the peace, to the bliss, to the joy and you begin to navigate more in that way. [MEntity]: But one thing that will also go against the grain of most metaphysical philosophies or spiritual philosophies is that it will be nearly impossible for you to have unconditional love for yourself before the last moment of your last lifetime. [MEntity]: This is because the explosion of separation, fragmentation, and everything after that, is a return to that wholeness, is a return to that zero-sum point energy state (we may be using the phrase incorrectly through this channel, but it is a zero-sum point). Everything from that fragmentation, or from the casting in a Grand Cycle, is a shrinking of that range of energy between fear and love, fear and love, until you get to that point where you truly grasp that unconditional love for yourself, for this planet, for the people you have ever known. Then you cycle off. [MEntity]: One of the reasons why it is so difficult for you to love / to aim for it is because, surprisingly, that aim is an aim that your body (and your physicality and your Personality) equates with non-existence, with zeroing out your ledger. We said that coming into these lives takes courage, but it is also a lot of fun. And your Essence, for lack of a better term, loves the journey. [MEntity]: And so that is always in contrast to the Personality, who is constantly seeking to stay alive, to biologically continue its existence. Love is terrifying. So you begin to learn how to love later in your lives as an Old Soul because then you begin to embrace that you exist far beyond these incarnations. You exist, and every version of you has existed, will carry forward with you, and you begin to comprehend this. [MEntity]: That is when you begin to allow yourself to love more, because that zero-sum point is simply a transition to another loop of / another version of a journey in different kinds of bodies (the astral, and causal and so forth). But it takes a while for you to get that / to feel that it is not a threat to your existence / to simply, unconditionally love not just yourself, but everyone, and truly grasp what that means. [MEntity]: This is why we have said that many cannot and will not reach that state, not because we are saying not to aim for it, but simply because it is a long arc and a long journey towards that point. [MEntity]: So you cannot live without fear and you cannot love yourself unconditionally. How is that for a surprise? [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: We say that only in the sense that it is not a conclusive state. It is not a state toward which you will be able to aim for and sustain. You will have moments of unconditional love. We do not mean to imply that you will not. You will have moments of fearlessness. You will have stretches of unconditional love. You will have stretches of fearlessness. But you will not get to a conclusive state and stay there until that last moment in your last life. Then all parts of you come with you. [Cyprus]: Thirty-minute mark. [MEntity]: It seems we may have covered both topics after all. [Audience]: Laughter [Cyprus]: Look at all that Idealist-ness. [MEntity]: Do you have questions about what we just said? And does it come as a surprise to you? [Audience]: No / Not at all / Yes and no / etc. (1:09:00) [Cyprus]: It doesn’t look like there are any questions. Oh, Bobby. [Bobby]: I’ve got one. Since you’ve experienced that Agape in the physical body, what is that like? [MEntity]: Death. [Audience]: Laughter [Comment]: What’s that like? [MEntity]: It is much like…we have another entity friend who has described it as “taking off a tight shoe at the end of the day and the relief that comes with that.” It is a great, tremendous relief and profound transformation. It is difficult to describe, because if it were easier to describe you may have been there already and had a very short Cycle. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: But what we will say is that that state of unconditional love / that final point of Agape / that zero-sum point is on “your” terms. It is not something that is a standard. It is a standard in terms of its lack of conditions, but that process to get there, and when “you” know it, is on “your” terms. [MEntity]: When we say “your,” we are speaking in terms of Essence and that final Personality. That final Personality and that final moment for Essence are not only on terms with each other, when that moment is, but every single Personality that has come before that is in on it and “you” are aware of this. We can say that it is quite beautiful. [MEntity]: Then the work of sorting through all of the emotional wreckage of the entity begins on the astral, because then we begin to reunite with our fellow members and sort out everything we had not sorted out before. That is a new level of love and awareness and learning, and it is quite emotional. There are no more secrets then. [MEntity]: Next question. [Maxim]: If a person gets to this unconditional love thing at the end of their life, wouldn’t that include / wouldn’t that embrace all the relationships? So why would it be sorted out with the entity when they sort of reunite? [MEntity]: Because it is within the context of physicality. It is in the context of the Physical Plane. That work of love does not stop with this plane. We do not mean to add any more daunting to your experiences, but this is just the beginning. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: The work of uncovering all of the secrets / lies for every Personality that you were and all the relationships between all of those Personalities begins sorting in the astral as the fragments reunite. And that, as we said, is a new level of horror. [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: …and joy. [Cyprus]: Thanks for throwing that in there. [Comment]: That’s awesome. [MEntity]: Next question. [Claire]: Does this happen somewhat each time there’s a death? Like, to some extent? Does this type of reconciliation take place? [MEntity]: When we said that that moment is like death…not all deaths are like that moment. But that moment is like death. Some deaths no – in fact, many deaths no – do not bring that kind of moment to it. But that moment is like a death in that there is an escalation into another layer of awareness and transformation that is quite profound that you must contend with. [Claire]: Even between incarnations there’s this type of…? [MEntity]: Death in itself is that: an escalation into another state of awareness with which you must contend. That final moment of unconditional Agape is like that, but often (we will say) is more beautiful, more wonderful, and relief-oriented, whereas, while death can be still described as an escalation to a state of awareness with which you must contend and a transformation, it is not often met with that relief. It is often met with “oh god, what did I do?” [Audience]: Laughter [MEntity]: And the learning continues within the context of the life you just lived. [Claire]: But is there a reconciliation with the other Personalities at that level or is that only when the entity gets done? [MEntity]: No. Every Soul Age that you transition beyond…when you are at the end of your Infant Soul cycle, there will be that last lifetime in that Infant Soul cycle with which you have done the work of reconciling and embracing as much as you can within that range as an Infant Soul before shifting into Baby Soul. So there is a similarity, yes. The process only escalates in its impact with each Soul Age. Did this answer your question? [Claire]: Yes, yes. Thank you. [Cyprus]: Nick [Nick]: You may have already answered this, but…so the aim when we have physical incarnations is that unconditional moment on that day we cycle off. Beyond physical incarnations, is Agape still the aim? A different layer of it? Or is there a different aim? [MEntity]: Oh there are new layers, but that continues to be the aim, yes. It’s within a new context, and each plane will have its context in which Agape is renewed in its definition and we can delineate that in another exchange with you. It’s very difficult to describe. [MEntity]: For instance, we are working on an intellectual relationship with Tao, and Agape is still a part of that. How do we reconcile cause and effect? How do we understand the dynamics at work across the universes and its relationship to Tao on a scale that goes beyond any single lifetime or even collection of lifetimes for an individual fragment? So the scale simply becomes larger and more encompassing in terms of what that aim of Agape is to include. Do you understand? [Nick]: Yes (1:18:15) [Cyprus]: Bobby [Bobby]: With this Agape that you described as the experience at the last life, the last breath…death basically. How do you differentiate that with that Agape from the positive pole of Acceptance? What’s the difference? [MEntity]: Not much, except that the positive pole of Acceptance is not sustained. It is aimed for. It is the beacon with which towards to aim and have those moments that you build upon, whereas that final “getting it,” that final unconditional relief is sustained and carried forward into a new context. So each time you aim towards the positive pole of Acceptance / every time you aim for +Agape and gain more experience with that, you are collecting that to be a part of that last moment. [Cyprus]: So, I just wanted to be super clear. You did mention earlier that we have those moments. And I’m familiar with those where you’re just in that one second where everything is so super clear and you really do feel that intense love for everything. You feel the stretching out of yourself and all that, but it does only sustain for such a short time. So those are sort of cumulative… [MEntity]: Yes they are. You do not lose those. [Cyprus]: …over all the lifetimes and in that last moment they all just, like, stack in? [MEntity]: That is correct, in so many words. [Cyprus]: Interesting. [MEntity]: Yes, so when you are aiming for Agape, and we are saying that you cannot reach that state in a way that many teachings try to teach you that you can, those moments are not lost. Every moment that you love unconditionally is collected and built upon and carried forward to that moment when you finally “get it” and they all align with one another. That moment is quite profound. [Cyprus]: Well, even when you have that not-sustained moment, it is amazing, beautiful, and wonderful. It’s very impactful even to the rest of your life even though it’s short. So I can’t even imagine, of course, but it must be amazing if it’s sustained. [MEntity]: We assure you, it is. [Cyprus]: Oh, well, thank you very much. [Audience]: Laughter [Kasia]: This may have been answered before. I hate to use the word “purpose,” but is this sort of the reason, direction, purpose for why we are continuously striving for Agape: is to have these moments to then put them all together at the end of our entire journey? [MEntity]: Yes. They are breadcrumbs home. [Audience]: Awwws [Comment]: Oh my god that is too much. [Royce]: This might just be the idealist in me, but I’m really drawn to teachers that…I’ll use Byron Katie as an example who explains her experience as (I’ll use Michael terms) the False Personality sort of dropping here and we should be able to live in that love. And that’s always my sort of idea of living in Agape. And assuming she’s not on the last life, the last breath, how would that experience be explained on your terms. [MEntity]: Some teachers who are still incarnating will describe their efforts to sustain that state and to aim for that state in a way that helps others to aim for that, but it is often exaggerated. It is often not understood within a larger context of its being navigated in a way that is not sustained. It is to help you to figure out how to do that for yourself. But it is a bit of a misnomer if there is a teacher portraying herself or himself as having reached that state as a conclusive state. [MEntity]: If this teacher is sharing it as a state with which you can access, but that the rest of life still happens and that it is not always easy and that there is not a simple shedding that transforms you into a different state entirely for the lifetime…if it is being taught as a guide and not as a place to get to, it is far more helpful than when it is misrepresented as a conclusive state. [Cyprus]: Max? [MEntity]: We rambled that sentence a bit. [Audience]: Laughter [Maxim]: I think you answered my question because there’s no way that you can hold the state while you’re alive. It’s that moment of release when you die. That’s what I get. [MEntity]: Yes. This does not mean that you cannot love. This does not mean that you cannot have periods, or moments, or stretches of time with that unconditional love. It is just that life happens and it will challenge it. As long as you are alive, it will be challenged in the context of physical existence. When you are done with that challenge, that process of challenge, then you are done with your lifetimes. [MEntity]: So it is still worth aiming for, and it does not mean that you have done something wrong if you are bitchy or having a bad day. [Audience]: Laughter [Cyprus]: Wait, wait, wait. I wanted to make sure you were done before she went. Were you done? [MEntity]: Did we address your comment? [Maxim]: Yes [Cyprus]: Ardis [MEntity]: So, the infinite Soul, when it comes through a last lifetime for the thirty days that it exists, is that Infinite Soul expression, part of that expression, true Agape and experienced by those around? [MEntity]: Yes. This is why it can burn up the body. [Ardis]: Right. [MEntity]: Sustaining it for an extended period of time can threaten the body in a literal, biological sense. And that is why the Infinite Soul has a limited window with which it can fully manifest through thirty days maximum. We know of no individuals who can sustain unconditional love and Agape for thirty days. The Infinite Soul can, and your bodies are capable doing that for up to thirty days. You will still need to have your down time from the experience if you were to do that on your own, but we know of no one who has sustained it for that extended period of time. There is usually a fluctuation. But yes, that is why it is a short visit and a profound effect. [Cyprus]: Amy [Amy]: So when you’re talking about that last breath, moment, whatever of Agape, you’re describing it as beautiful, wonderful, awesome, but I really just want to know, is it fun? Because you can see something that is beautiful, wonderful, and awesome in a view, but that’s not really fun. [MEntity]: We were using limited terms, but all of the terms that you might use to describe whatever it is that brings you your experience and within your vocabulary can be used. And yes, it is quite fun. (1:28:00) [Cyprus]: Anyone else? Yes, Eric. [Eric]: I’m curious. It’s mentioned a lot how the extended experience of Agape or that state can, it’s been said, “burn out” the body or be a biological threat to the body. I’m curious if there’s a way that you can explain how so. How that would physically affect the body / be a physical threat or “burn out” the body. [MEntity]: In the same way that we cannot sustain a connection through Troy and simply get up and go have dinner with you: because that is not the animating force that is keeping Troy alive. We are not keeping this body alive. So by our blending with this energy that is known as Troy, and the body, we are charging it, so to speak, with another source / dimension of energy that is not able to be sustained. When you escalate this to the level of the Infinite Soul manifesting it is simply multiplied to a profound degree. [MEntity]: One of the ways that you might be able to understand this is: imagine the affects on the body of depression for an extended period of time. Imagine the effects on the body from manic disorder. These are quite personal to the individual and generated by the individual and even the body, and they will still harm the body. So amping that up from an external source – such as the Causal Plane, or the Buddhaic Plane, or the Messianic Plane – it is quite difficult for the body to sustain that. [MEntity]: In other words, if it is difficult for you to survive through depression without damaging the body, it may help you to understand why it is difficult for the body to survive an amplification of energy that comes from such a vast source such as that in such a condensed moment. [MEntity]: We know that this does not describe the physics of this, but it is close to how we can describe it. You are microwaving the body as you are accessing those other planes. And we say that figuratively of course. [Eric]: Has that actually happened before: a body got burned out from such an experience? [MEntity]: Yes, even our channels suffer. Our channels sometimes get cancer, brain aneurisms. There are work dangers involved with working with us. [Cyprus]: Speaking of, five minute mark. [Comment]: We’d like to keep Troy’s brain. [Audience]: Laughter [Cyprus]: I was getting a little panicky just now. [MEntity]: Many of our channels have physical health problems not because of anything they are doing. It is simply a hazard of the…it is a Physical Plane hazard of the job or the work of accessing such a connection to the Causal Plane. This is why we encourage management of the time and access in a way that will work best for that channel. [Cyprus]: Last question. [Kasia]: Just to continue on that, is management of time the only way to manage that physical or is nutrition another way to manage it? [MEntity]: Yes. [Kasia]: What are some other ways to manage it? [MEntity]: Yes, taking care of the body, of course, in a way that would be beneficial with or without our participation is a good start. But there are also different degrees to which we can come through and still get a message through. [MEntity]: Physical work with us in this capacity is more difficult on the body than what Troy does on a regular basis where there is less of us blending with the entire body, but that we are still communicating information through so that you can convey it in written form. So it is not necessarily always about time management but energy management. And yes diet is a great factor involved. [MEntity]: So with that, we will conclude here with you today. Good day to each of you and goodbye. [Audience]: Thank you’s and goodbyes. (1:34:00)
  12. New York City Michael Speaks—Open Forum 2017-06-24 Channeled by Troy Tolley TRANSCRIBED FROM LIVE AUDIO RECORDING by @DanielaS MEntity: Give us a few moments to secure our delivery through Troy. But in the meantime, we can begin. And we understand that the topic will be varied tonight. So, we will begin with opening the floor in general. Cary: I have been wondering how people who endure extremes of crappy stuff, like slaves in the United States—their lives were not great—and I have wondered why didn’t they just commit mass suicide? What made them keep going? And so to extrapolate from that, what can people do to get inspiration when their lives suck that bad, or if they feel their lives suck that bad? What keeps people from suiciding when their lives suck? MEntity: There are two responses that we have to that question to cover two types of scenarios for most who are in situations that you describe: One may seem rather cliché, but it is cliché because it is true... that many continue for Love. There are families, there are bonding processes in place, there are scenarios of hope, and this is stronger than it may seem when faced with such dire and torturous circumstances. It can get you to the next day. A simple, very simple direct line to Love. Not only Love for another individual sharing the life of the person who is suffering but an effort to develop this Love for the self as well. MEntity: In many cases like what you describe, the conclusive end to their life is not something that is focused on. There is an intention to make it better for reasons of Love. And so that will, in many cases, and in most cases, help one to get from one day to the next and these simply add up. MEntity: The coordination for a mass suicide is something that would not be easy to accomplish. It would seem like a simple answer or a simple solution to halt such atrocities on a large scale but that type of coordination is not possible. MEntity: The other answer that we can give is: simple biological survival. It is very difficult for the body to give in to suicidal tendencies unless a person is broken to a level of no return. The body's entire point of existence is to exist. Its entire point is to get to the next day. MEntity: So, whether for Love or for survival, many get to the next day. And these days simply accumulate into being a life, even if the life was never outside of the confines of oppression or torture or suffering. MEntity: What counts at the end of that life is the effort to love even more than the effort to rebel. MEntity: And whether done consciously or subconsciously it is programmed into every fragment to either allow the body to do its work to survive or for the consciousness to do its work to love. And that is how you survive many situations. MEntity: Does this answer your question? Cary: Yes. Thank you. Cyprus: Shanequa? Shanequa: Can you give me a story of creation? MEntity: We know of no beginning. We are still looking for that as well, in terms of consciousness existing and why we exist at all. We are still looking for this in our own studies. MEntity: In terms of your universe, the Big Bang Theory is the closest to being accurate and this is still not quite accurate. So, the short answer is that the Big Bang Theory is the closest that is accurate. The consciousness that exists in your universe that you know, such as us and such as you, existed even before the universe, and this collective consciousness that is all of us (and this is going to be rather grand in scope to comprehend), participated in the manipulation of matter, physics, in creating a universe. MEntity: However, there is a lot more intentional manipulation involved in the process that is not as random as science would describe it. It takes a great deal of work and a great deal of “time” to manipulate an evolution of matter and to bring together a combination of elements to create a trajectory of life, to create a planet, to create a solar system and so forth. But we did it. MEntity: And those who try to explain creation in terms of some higher force doing the work may personify that force and that process and may simplify it, but it is fairly accurate in terms of the fact that all of us contributed to what we have as a platform of existence in this universe. MEntity: To go any deeper into that creation process would require greater focus and we are not certain if we have responded accurately to your question. Shanequa: You’ve definitely given me some good insight on how the beginnings were. Definitely. MEntity: We do not think we were that clear. [Laughter] Cyprus: Well, the fact that we participated in the creation of the Big Bang is interesting information. Shanequa: And it not being like some random thing. In choosing to have this evolution happen is not random then. MEntity: Yes, because there are other versions, other universes, that have a very different set of physics, a very different set of what we would describe as a “platform of existence.” And consciousness exists there as well. Our collective conscious from our ultimate origins has parallels of itself that are far beyond most imagination limits that any individual has and it’s difficult to describe these because we have no real reference from our platform of existence. Cyprus: Bobby, do you have a question? BFBobby: I know this could serve as a whole session onto itself, but can you provide just a general overview or explanation of what Life Plans are and how they work into the overleaves? MEntity: Yes, we use the term or the phrase Life Plan to describe a cyclical process of accessing what you might define as your “purpose” over a period of time. These happen in seven-year cycles, but we describe them in five-year cycles because five years of the seven tend to be the active years. Two years buffer sometimes at the end, sometimes at the beginning, and sometimes as one-year bookends to the five years. However, those 2 additional years are arranged we describe these as “The Void” that is a part of that cyclical process of creating and defining the life or bringing meaning to it, or purpose. MEntity: All of you are at some point in your Life Plan and that Life Plan has a theme. The Life Plan is something that is a co-creative process with Essence. It is not dictated to you. It is not assigned to you. But it tends to be a pattern that unfolds in your life with or without conscious participation. MEntity: We like to share the Life Plan with our students who ask so that they can see the greater patterns of their lives or the patterns that may be in place at the time, or so they understand that The Void is in effect where one is re-evaluating where one is with one’s sense of purpose or one’s sense of meaning in life. MEntity: The most we can go further with that concept is to speak to each of you individually about where you are and what the theme is for your Life Plan. Cyprus: I think that’d be cool, but I have a question. Do they correlate then to the Monads in a certain way, as you’re going through your Internal Monads? MEntity: They are not synced with the Internal Monads. But we can say that the more one is participating in the themes of the Life Plan the more one tends to be in the positive poles of completion for an Internal Monad, and vice versa. Cyprus: Oh interesting! MEntity: However, a Life Plan will continue to be in place, even when between Internal Monads when they are not active. Cyprus: But I like the concept that if you’re more, that if you participate more and you’re more aware and more awake, I guess, and more present in your Life Plan it . . . MEntity: Most of you know what your Life Plan is at the moment. It tends to be something that is distracting. It tends to be something that is quietly nagging at you or speaking to you, hinting to you, bringing various elements of life to your attention as a way to fulfill that Life Plan. It does not even have to have a name or a clear objective. But you know what it is because it tends to come to mind on a regular basis. MEntity: And if we were going to speak to each of you individually about your Life Plan we could ask each of you to sum up in a phrase, as succinctly as possible, what is on your mind on a regular basis that seems to be important to you. And this is likely tied to whatever is active as a Life Plan at the moment. This is an exercise we offer up to you to share in if you choose to. Cyprus: Does anyone know what they think theirs might be? Cary: This is different from the Life Task? Cyprus: Yes. BFBobby: I have my sentence. What’s nagging at me is I want to create, obviously. But I want to create something beautiful and meaningful and evocative, not just for myself but, and I don’t know if that’s a physical thing or an intangible thing, but I want to create something that betters the world or has a positive impact on the world and people around me. MEntity: In your case, we think you are coming out of a two-year period that we could describe as the Void. The Void is where one is figuratively climbing a ladder with the focus on your foot between rungs. And that suspension of your foot is no indication of whether you are halted or not. It will continue to the next rung, but it can feel as if you are in limbo. It can feel as if you are in some sort of space that is contemplative and philosophical in its nature because you are trying to figure out what to do with this new seed that is tied to a new layer of a Life Plan or a new theme of a Life Plan. You are coming out of that in August and this will start your next five years of the Life Plan where it will focus in more tangible ways on what you have described as creating in ways that are fulfilling and make a difference on your terms. MEntity: We are looking for a phrase that may describe this in a more succinct way. The closest that we can come to at the moment is a very simple phrase and that is HELPING OTHERS. The theme is that you want to HELP OTHERS, that there is a focus on HELPING OTHERS. This may be familiar to many of our students but in our response to you right now that is what your Life Plan could be described as being over the next five years: to focus on implementing how you will HELP OTHERS. Cyprus: Anyone else? Cary: Yeah, the thing that’s been nagging at me lately is wanting to move out and live on my own in New York City. I feel like I’ve started, but I have no idea if I’ll do that in a decent time frame. MEntity: What do you mean by decent time frame? Cary: Before I’m old and gray. I guess within the next two years. MEntity: We think that you are in the first year after coming out of a Void. You are already out of The Void and into the tangible Sequences that are in effect to fulfill the Life Plan. And we might describe yours as EMPOWERED INDEPENDENCE. You are only in the first year of that five-year Life Plan cycle. What we would suggest next is to give yourself time, allow yourself that time, because that is the plan. What you are distracted by and find to be the impulse is accurate to what Essence is looking to do with you, as you. The most symbolic tangible evidence of EMPOWERED INDEPENDENCE is your living on your terms in the way that you describe. You are just at the beginning of this and it looks as if it’s in the 80% probability range for manifesting if you continue to participate in its trajectory. Cyprus: That’s pretty high for a Michael probability. Cary: Awesome. MEntity: One of the reasons why there is high probability is not because it is destined, of course, but because you have decided that this is what you want and that it is good for you. And however many obstacles there may be, taking care of yourself is something that you are fairly good at doing, so this will help forge that path toward what you have decided is best for you. And you can do it. Cyprus: Anyone else? Kerrin: For my Life Plan, as things keep moving forward, I keep finding myself falling back into old patterns from my past career where I am always in a support position and I’m making everyone else really successful. And I really want to create my own business and start creating and bring my own vision forward in design. And creating based on my values of sustainability. I have all the ideas, but I keep getting caught up in working for other people, so I can pay my bills. But I’m really, really trying to, you know, move forward. Yeah. I want my crown, damn it. MEntity: Your Void was approximately a year ago and you are also in the end of the first year of this Life Plan that we can see. MEntity: What seems to have been important was a review based on what you are describing. Two things were important: the review, which is to return to some very humble positions in your life that prompted—we’re looking for the correct words—prompted an ownership of your confidence, and ownership of your importance, and ownership of your talents, and an ownership of everything that is important to you. MEntity: Kings tend to do this, especially older Kings who have had to comply to positions in life that do not cater to the positions that used to be available to us as Kings. And when the King decides that it is time to step up or to move oneself into a position of greater control over the life, they tend to do a great step backward as a way to say, “Oh, Yes. That greater control is what I wanted.” And then they go for it. MEntity: You are entering the second year of your Life Plan. And from what we can see it is simply a matter of continuing what you are doing and aiming for clarity in what it is that you want to create as your platform of personal success. You are certainly not condemned to only being of support to others’ success. But, as we said earlier, the other part of what you were doing was simply taking care of yourself along the way. Cyprus: That is exciting. Cyprus: Shanequa? Shanequa: I’ve been focusing on,.... [edited for privacy] Shanequa: You summed up everything. Cyprus: They got that skill. Shanequa: Read him real quick! Cyprus: Umm, . . . MEntity: We are not done. Cyprus: Oh, sorry! [edited for privacy] MEntity: Did the Sage want to speak? [Laughter] Cyprus: That’s almost a ridiculous question! Why yes, I was going to do mine. Contrary, the exact opposite of Bobby’s, mine’s about me. I feel like the one thing that has really been reoccurring for me recently is kinda like twofold: one is being me and the other thing is caring for the body that is me in a way that I’ve never really looked at or appreciated or was concerned about or any of those things at all. And I think the reason I asked about the Monads is because when I turned 50 things felt like they changed for me in a way and I thought it had something to do with Monad shifting and I thought it might tie into the Life Plan. But it’s very important for the integrity of me to be me, but also to care for me in a way I haven’t before. MEntity: And your question? Cyprus: It’s not a question. I’m asking about my Life Plan. [Laughter] Cyprus: Now I think Troy’s just being a smart ass! He’s in there going, really? [Laughter] MEntity: We had to let Troy relax back down. MEntity: This is because you have started your 5th Internal Monad and this is a process of recreating yourself. The 5th Internal Monad is a process of freeing yourself from your own ideas about who you should have been, who you could have been. It is about defining yourself beyond even your own terms. MEntity: And so it is more about that larger cycle happening for you than it is about a Life Plan, though a Life Plan will naturally tie into that. But to understand what is happening to you, we would suggest exploring the mapping of the 5th Internal Monad and what it is for and how to navigate it. That we do not have to elaborate on here for you to find some insight into what it is and why you are shifting in your perspective of yourself. MEntity: In terms of the Life Plan, you are also at the beginning stages of the five-year part of the plan. The term that comes to us for describing your Life Plan is LONGEVITY. This is a Life Plan that is focusing on staying here longer, being here in existence, in the best state that you can possibly participate in making. Whereas in the past, this has always been left up to what you would think of as random factors or that it is something that you simply do not think about. But now you do. And it matters to you to stay here with the ones you love and to gain more from this life than simply riding it out. Cyprus: I always reference the fact that Kerrin used to talk about her body as something that moved her head around. I guess I kinda always felt that way in a certain way, that it was just like there, but I do recently have been thinking so much more strongly about it. MEntity: You do exist beyond your head. Bobby: Questioning your mortality. Cyprus: Yeah, I think that’s part of it, too. I get the concept of wanting to be here. I used to not think about that as a thing. And now I think, I’m achy. And I have this and I have that. I love getting older, but I just don’t love that my body feels it in a different way. And I can’t do things that I did before. Like carrying something. I used to be able to lift heavy boxes. Now I’m like all weak and shit. It’s so weird. So, it has been a real focus for me. MEntity: Keep in mind that that is a state that is natural for the body to move through and toward. It is not something to overcome. It is something to adapt to and to care within the parameters that are shifting. Cyprus: I 100% agree. I really totally get that part. BFBobby: She’s not going to exert more effort than she absolutely has to. Cyprus: But those are the moments when you realize that things change that you didn’t know changed until you tried to do them and now you can’t do them anymore. BFBobby: The old you would be like, Oh yay, someone else will have to do it for me. [Laughter] Cyprus: Anyway. Thank you. BFBobby: Can I ask two questions as needing some clarification. The first one was: Michael said that the Life Plan is co-created with Essence. Does that mean for each fragment, like I’m Bobby, my Life Plan is this: Helping Others. But then if I come back or a previous life that I had, it would have been a totally different Life Plan? That’s question one. And the second question is: These seven-year cycles. Does the Life Plan, maybe if you accomplish what you wanted to accomplish, if Kerrin creates her own design company or whatever, does the Life Plan in the next cycle possibly shift to a new Life Plan? MEntity: The phrase “Life Plan” is a bit of a misnomer in the sense that it is only a temporary plan. It is not an arcing plan that is defining the lifetime. BFBobby: It doesn’t define the whole lifetime? MEntity: No. That is why they move in cycles. Because you change plans. You change interests. You change fascinations. You change motivations. Inspiration can come. Environments can change. The culture can change. Society can change. And the Life Plans will adapt to these. So, there will be other lifetimes as “not-Bobby” who also had for a period of time the Life Plan of HELPING OTHERS and that Personality would have pursued it in a way that was important to her or him. MEntity: Your Life Plan of HELPING OTHERS may also shift if you were to push too far into the realm of helping others to the extent of harming yourself. Then your Life Plan may shift into how do I help myself or, more likely, how do I find a balance between helping others and helping myself. And so, the Life Plans are constantly being recalibrated and assessed. MEntity: If there were only one arcing Life Plan it would be very difficult for Essence to ever get anything done because a Personality is fairly rogue in its choice-making process as it learns and as it remembers. And Essence can never count on a Personality to do as it was expected to do. We remember. MEntity: So, the Life Task is the broadest context that a life may have as a direction. And it can be rejected, or it can be fulfilled. But the Life Plan is more short term and tends to appeal to the Personality in a very immediate way. BFBobby: Got it. So, based on that would it make sense that your Life Plan often fits into your Life Task? MEntity: Everything fits into the Life Task. Yes. Shanequa: What do you choose before you incarnate here? Your Life Plans? Or your Task? Or? MEntity: The Life Task is chosen by Essence before you incarnate. It tends not to activate as a sense of direction until around the 4th Internal Monad, or at the earliest after the 3rd Internal Monad. However, older souls can often be aware of the Life Task even earlier. MEntity: But the Life Plans are something that is developed on the fly, so to speak, as the life progresses. Because the Life Plan must appeal to the Personality. It must be something that is generated by the Personality and then Essence gets behind that. MEntity: To make things clearer, we could say that the Life Task is what the Essence would like to experience, and Personality must get behind that if it is to be fulfilled. The Life Plan is what the Personality would like to experience, and Essence would get behind that. Shanequa: Are there Agreements that you make beforehand about your Life Task? How does that play in? These Agreements you make? MEntity: The Life Tasks are broad enough to accommodate all of the choices that may come from Personality. There are certain pivotal points where there may be a pool of Agreements that would help bring to light the Life Task for an individual. But the Life Task is so broad intentionally, so that wherever the Personality is going it has the capacity to fulfill. MEntity: That is why a Life Task is described in such broad terms, such as, TO OVERCOME INTERNAL OBSTACLES, for instance. This can be done in many different ways, and it will likely be fulfilled by some version of the Personality. But it is rather broad. And Agreements can be tied into that in advance, but more often than not they are also generated as the life progresses. MEntity: There is nothing predestined about a lifetime. Shanequa: I thought there were some things. Cyprus: Choice. That’s the whole point. Learning how to choose and choosing how to learn. Shanequa: But like you choose your parents and stuff, so that’s like, destined. Cyprus: Yeah, but you don’t choose the relationship that you have with them. Those things all evolve through time and choice. BFBobby: No outcome is predetermined. You may set up the chess board, but how you play the game has not been predetermined. Cyprus: And you never know how other people will move their pieces. MEntity: You can choose the vehicle, but you determine what time you arrive. Group Response: Ooooooo. [Laughter] BFBobby: Bringing it back! Cyprus: I like a full circle! I like a full circle. [NOTE FROM TROY: This must have been a playful reference to the very late arrival of an attendee] Cyprus: Kerrin, do you have a question? Kerrin: A general question? You know I have to bring in politics. I can’t control myself. My question is now that we have Donald Trump and we have a Republican administration, and things are getting ugly, what are the probabilities that it’ll implode? That Donald Trump will get impeached? That people in America will start to wake up to what’s going on, and how much longer? MEntity: Of course, we cannot predict, especially with so many involved in the process of what is to come. But we can see the patterns, and there are more patterns moving in the direction of an awakening, or at least a revelation, that is a point of no return. And what we mean by this is that the country, or the consciousness that is participating in the country, are at a point where they will either be set back for another 100 to 1,000 years-- Multiple Responses: Oh my god! Wow! Ugh!! MEntity: And your reaction [Laughter] is fairly accurate to the percentage that is interested in that, which is very small, relatively speaking, but very strong. Or you will accelerate in a way that finds those who are resisting progress to be included. And that is the most difficult, key element at this moment for how to move forward in a way that is a point of no return toward more Mature soul and peaceful paths: how to include those who are terrified of that. MEntity: One of the only ways to do so is to drag them, so to speak, into that paradigm because they will adapt. But that choice to “drag” them into it would have to be made in a way that stopped being concerned about the reactions or the fears or the courtesy, the retaliations, and so forth. MEntity: There are only two years left, that we can see, based on the patterns in place now that can sustain this before a major setback or a major leap occurs. We think this is tied to the greater shift in patterns coming together for 2020, where the Infinite Soul manifestations are becoming more and more likely to occur for an intervention. And so, in the next two years, if this is not tied up in some way that is beneficial to all involved even to those who resisted, then there will likely be intervention. MEntity: So, in short, we can say that in the next two years it is likely that something will change. It will not be something that must be endured much longer. Cyprus: I have a question on her question. People have been talking about the Infinite Soul returning for quite a time now. Is it just, like, hanging out, waiting for us to hit rock bottom or something? ‘Cause that’s what it sort of sounds like. MEntity: Yes, the Infinite Soul manifestations only occur if there is a necessity for vital intervention to help return the species to a viable state. Kerrin: Things aren’t shitty enough yet. Which means we still have a ways to go. MEntity: There is always an Infinite Soul manifestation waiting in the wings, so to speak. The Infinite Soul is not a single Entity. It is not a being. It is a collection of Cadres and Entities and so forth manifesting as a representative of Tao. MEntity: But we are not clear on its algorithms for accessing how “bad” it must get for the intervention. We suspect that from that perspective they have access to greater patterns than we do. And when it is seen that even if it reaches a very painful and difficult part in human history, if the patterns are indicating a recovery from that in a way that allows humanity to mature on its own, the manifestation will be avoided. BFBobby: To use words that you, Michael, said earlier would it be fair to say that the Infinite Soul probably wouldn’t come if we reach a Turning Point but rather only come if we reach a Breaking Point. MEntity: Correct. Yes, the Infinite Soul had manifestations slated for around 1986 and 1999, 2001, 2012 and so far humans have continued to find a way through on their own. And that is what the goal is as a collective consciousness. MEntity: It may be sometimes difficult to see it in tangible terms or in evidential terms at the moment, but the manifestation of the Infinite Soul means that at least from that perspective the patterns that were evolving would have led to some form of terrible demise for the species if it had continued. Cyprus: So when the Infinite Soul comes it represents love or truth or energy. So, is it already predetermined what the next one would be? MEntity: All three for the next manifestation. Cyprus: Oh, it’s triple threat. BFBobby: We’re fucking our world up big time. MEntity: It has manifested in its various facets before, but this manifestation to accommodate the population is aiming for five separate manifestations from demographics that would listen to those individuals. Cyprus: Will they have a connection to each other here? If there are five and they are obviously all connected because of the Infinite Soul connection, are the five bodies somehow connected or will connect in some way? Or would it be just five random things that happened for each one in a different area? Cary: Will their Personalities know each other? Is that what you mean? Cyprus: Well, not necessarily know each other but somehow connected? MEntity: They will all be seventh-level Old. That is one factor that will tie them together, but they will have various positions within various Entities and Cadres. They will likely not know each other. MEntity: Keep in mind that all Infinite Soul manifestations are the Personality of the individual for most of its life and most of its teaching until the actual manifestation happens, which tends to only be 30 to 90 days of the life. Until that manifestation, they are being guided and supported by the Infinite Soul manifestation process, but it is still the individual’s teaching and the individual’s choice fueled, so to speak, by the direct connection to Infinite Soul. Cyprus: So are some of these ones that were waiting around in like 2012 and ’99? MEntity: Some of them have been opted out. One example is the fragment known as Elián González, who was slated to be the next Infinite Soul at that time and has opted out. That was a prime position to be in for great influence that shifted and is no longer viable. MEntity: So those who will be manifesting the Infinite Soul are on the planet at the time and in their lives. They will probably still have their teachings, of course, in some way. But until 2020 it will not be known as to whether there will be a locking on to, an anchoring, to those individuals so the actual manifestation occurs. BFBobby: So, they are regular, everyday Personalities up until the Infinite Soul manifestation for generally 30 to 90 days? MEntity: They tend to be fairly beloved and fairly influential already in some way, and often fairly rebellious in the environments that they are in, in some way bringing to light a change that must be made. BFBobby: But they aren’t for their entire life the Infinite Soul? MEntity: Correct. For instance, one of the candidates is a part of the leadership that is protesting the pipeline in North Dakota. Kerrin: There is someone who is a tribal elder, I thought. MEntity: That is correct. Shanequa: Are they going to come out with the same philosophy in different areas? Because if they come out with different philosophies in different areas it’s going to pit us against each other. MEntity: No, what you are thinking of is religion. Religion comes long after the Infinite Soul teachings. There is the teaching of the individuals and then the manifestation of the Infinite Soul where there is a teaching, but it can NOT be in conflict with the teaching of another Infinite Soul. MEntity: In fact, all religions that are seeded by the Infinite Souls behind them have no conflict at their core. It is only what builds upon them afterward in complexities and complications that cause the conflicts. But at the core LOVE ONE ANOTHER is not in conflict with KNOW THYSELF. Do you understand? And at the core of every Infinite Soul’s teaching is a very simple truth or a very simple teaching. MEntity: Religion will change, as the Mature Soul population grows religion will change and its impact on the planet because what you are seeing is the Baby Soul version of spirituality or a teaching in the hands of Young Souls. The Young Souls learned very quickly that to maintain order and control over the Baby Souls they had to hijack their religions and this has worked for thousands of years and it is falling apart as the Mature Soul paradigm comes into existence. Cyprus: OK, so we went around but we probably don’t have a huge amount of time left. So, do we want to do our-- MEntity: This is not water. [Laughter] Cyprus: No, that is gin. Do you need water? Would you like the coconut water? MEntity: We are fine. [NOTE FROM TROY: I had been drinking a gin and tonic before the session and I usually need a drink of water during every vocal session at some point, so I always have water set up for Michael/Me to drink.] Cyprus: That was like the best part of the whole session so far! [Laughter] Cyprus: So, do we want to do our quick little personal questions? Cary: My question is a general question. The term Masculine/Feminine, M/F ratio, is very confusing to people. Is there some other term that would more accurately describe the type of energy that term is describing? MEntity: Yes, Focused and Creative. Cary: So, is that the term we should be using instead of M/F ratio? MEntity: No. It is important to differentiate and to move away from those terms at the moment because of the outdated and societal shifts that are occurring around gender at the moment. So, it is OK and important to move away from that and move toward the more neutral terms of Focused and Creative. But it is not something that needs to be discarded entirely because once the acceptance of fluidity in gender is accepted then the terms Male and Female will no longer represent polarities. They will represent a spectrum. MEntity: Because not a single person is 100% Female or Creative or 100% Focused or Male. So, our system was already built to include that fluidity. But we like to evolve our terms to match the times in the same way that we moved away from Slave as a term, which would not fly in this period of time where this term is used in a way to represent a period of history and a people in a very different way than what we had used the term originally. So, our teaching does evolve to adapt to the language of the time or it would die. So Focused and Creative is fair to use, even if you return to Male and Female later. Cyprus: Kerrin? Kerrin: How does Michael see my Essence in terms of color and imagery? MEntity: When we interact with your Essence and it shows itself in a form, it is often in geometric shapes that combine in ways that are unexpected and is often clear. We would not say that there was a color (although there is a color) but we cannot describe it. It is mostly clear or transparent, and the parts, the components, that make up your expression of Essence move about almost in mechanical ways, like clockwork that represents whatever it is that you are working on at the time. And they continue to move at all times in the same way that machinery works. And that is how we see you. BFBobby: If you are a geometric pattern that’s clear that makes you like a prism so you bounce back all colors. MEntity: That is one of the reasons why we could not describe a color because of the effects that these various geometric shapes have on the light around it. Cary: Is the movement like gears? MEntity: Clunky gears. [Laughter] They move with great fluidity but in unexpected ways, such as a conical shape moving in spiral patterns around a rectangle. Cyprus: My question is about our little group of four, Troy and Bobby and me and Johnny. We are getting group tattoos in two weeks from today, and Bobby and I both feel very driven about this process, and I love the fact that it’s art that’s created by two of the people in our group. And I wanted to know if the four of us have done this before. Because I feel like we did. MEntity: More than the four of you, of course, and all of you in this gathering have been tattooed in other lives. Cyprus: No, I know, but I meant like as a group of four. MEntity: We are looking. Yes, you have. Mostly as a part of a tribe. And not specific to the four of you, but as a part of a larger tribe. Which is partly what this represents in general. You are not choosing symbols that represent an exclusive grouping but your position within a greater grouping. And that is what is important about it for you at this time. MEntity: This will be the last question. Shanequa: Will I find that BFF that I feel that I have a longing for, that sister-friend. Or that sister-friend in a guy body? MEntity: Yes, because you are looking. But your space has to be more inviting. There are Agreements that all of you make with individuals that fall by the wayside if the environment is restricted in allowing the level of intimacy that would be desired. MEntity: So, you must shift in one of two ways. One would be to leave the environment that is restricting you, as we were discussing with you earlier. Or to simply own more of that environment on your terms before it can make room for that individual. MEntity: But yes, you have an Agreement with, we think it’s a Sage, female. We are looking for some validating factor so you will know when you cross paths. The window for the Agreement looks to be February to March of next year. The only validating factor that we can find at this moment is that she loves floral prints. She seems to be known for wearing floral prints. And we can check in with you again in further exchanges with you. It is a Sage female, in February to March. Cyprus: She’s clearly not someone sitting here now. [Laughter] Various Responses: Thank you very much. Yes, thank you! MEntity: We will conclude here. Good-bye.
  13. Michael Speaks - January 28, 2017 - When The Infinite Soul Arrives Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. We understand the topic to be that of the pending Infinite Soul arrival. The arrival of the Infinite Soul is fairly lacking in fanfare or announcement. It is rarely obvious and rarely dramatic. However, depending upon the positioning of the fragments to potentially host the Infinite Soul, those in direct opposition to the Logos may begin to react with rage and fear which can then escalate to historic levels of violence and shock. Keep in mind that the Infinite Soul has an ongoing roster of potential candidates for Manifestation. Fragments are not "chosen" with a long-term plan or fate set in place, but are chosen as patterns of consciousness, choice, and Karma coalesce toward breaking points for the species. There are hundreds of candidates at any given time. The dynamic that has been in place for this wave of Infinite Souls has remained unchanged since we first noted it many years ago: 5 Manifestations across the planet to represent/teach from and within various populations. There remains a priority for a strikingly young individual to host, at least one woman, and fragments representing various "minorities" around the world. One of the problems that can arise for any fragment opting into hosting for the Infinite Soul is the very real dangers that can end or derail the life long before the Infinite Soul can be hosted. Elian Gonzalez is a modern example of a higher profile candidate derailed by when the prospects of hosting emerged, reverting the life back to an isolated and distracted life confined by cultural restrictions. Other candidates will not be known to you by name and have died as the hosting triggered reactions from those around the individual. In nearly every instance of potential hosting for this Manifestation, the individual is an "unassuming civilian" and not yet in positions of influence, or not interested in these positions, but find themselves in positions that require a push into sustaining higher center functioning more often than normal. Though we will not point to any individual, we can say that one candidate is among those participating in the resistance where it is known as Standing Rock. This particular candidate is the closest to being locked into fulfilling Agreements with the Infinite Soul than any other candidate. This is not to say that Manifestation is imminent, but the position is primed. Other Manifestations are being negotiated, but may not be obvious in Manifestation until well into the years after Agreements are solidified. There has been a long-standing dynamic for Humans that has been leading away from the necessity for the Manifestation of the Infinite Soul, but in the past 2 years, this shifted dramatically back toward the species requiring intervention. The greater message of this Logos will likely tend to focus on Climate and your biosphere that is diminishing rapidly for Humans and other Earthlings. There are many issues that can be addressed, but even in the worst of challenging and painful scenarios among Humans, the greater threat to your existence is the plundering of the planet. One of the more common ways for a species to shift into a Mature Soul paradigm is to align a majority of the population, regardless of soul age, in conscious awareness of a common threat. The irony is that the greatest threat to your survival is yourselves. This truth is known in the Instinctive Center of every fragment extant. The problem that has arisen for the species is that the younger souls have read this Instinctive "knowing" and altered it into projection. Instead of including themselves in the equation of greatest threat, they have distorted the message of "you are the greatest threat to yourself" to "you are the greatest threat to me." This has compounded the anxiety of many of our students because now the "threat" to existence is known to be the self and a large part of the population, as well. To rephrase the above to read more accurately: This has compounded the anxiety for many of our students because now the "threat" to existence is known to arise from yourselves as a species, but you also know that a large portion of the population has shifted toward targeting others for this sense of threat, including you. So what could have been a unifying factor has been altered to be a great dividing factor. Aside from the Manifestation of the Infinite Soul intervention, our students can help to relieve this anxiety and stress by, at least, sharing the focus of effort on healing your own part in the equation of life as a Being of Earth. The division that is in place between those who target and those who are targeted will require strength and swift responses to dismantle, but this is a temporary fight compared to the impact that has the species at risk for survival. It is expected that the younger will retaliate and must be wrangled into paradigms that they feel threaten them, so intervention is not particularly necessary at those times, even when it would seem profoundly necessary. Intervention comes when the species is making an evolutionary leap, a paradigm shift, or for diversion away from devastation. This wave of Manifestations looks to address all of this. Though we cannot point to individuals as candidates for hosting, we can say that the confirmation of candidacy is likely to begin in 2020. The probability for Manifestation is at 72%. When this confirmation is in place, we will tell you. However, you may begin to see the patterns leaning toward Manifestation if you continue to observe or participate in the Standing Rock events. This can help you to identify other patterns amid other events that might arise from higher potential candidate confirmations. Once confirmation is in place, the life is fully aligned with the intentions of the Infinite Soul. The choices of the individual remain, but all impulses are followed as they rise from Essence. The actual hosting of the Infinite Soul as a voice for the Logos would be brief and choreographed among the various Manifestations. The actual hosting of the Infinite Soul can only be sustained for up to 30 days before the body would "burn up" with the energy. That state of hosting would likely come from among all hosts in a way that corresponds with and references each other. This may not be so obvious in implementation, but we will help watch for this to direct our students' attention for educational purposes. For older souls, the greatest way you can help as representations of consciousness for your Sentience, for your species, and as part of the dynamic that helps generate a path forward for the self and others is to recognize that you are part of this Infinite Soul. In other words, you need not wait to be rescued. You are part your own solution, your own answer, your own path forward, in both personal and greater terms, especially when the challenge is the species, itself. The Logos is all around you. You need not wait for the Infinite Soul arrival to acknowledge it and act upon it Many have snapped into and aligned with this truth. Some may assume this is because of the threat of the King in Tyranny. However, that is not the case, however much he comes to be the focus. This fragment is incidental in terms of coming into a position to symbolize the younger soul retaliation and resistance to evolution. Many students may see the King as having (inadvertently) inspired an awakening and is playing a known part in this greater dynamic, but that is false. In nearly every case among our students, the inspiration is not reflected by the King. It is generated from within, from the divide within you that has too long been ignored. It is part of you that has fallen asleep, regardless of how awake you may be. Students often wake up in a life and continue building upon great awareness, all while leaving a part of the self asleep as it relates to something more painful in the life. For many of our students, the part of the self that is deeply asleep is the part that feels welcome in this world. However awake you are, this remains a contested area at best, and deeply wounded numbness in most cases. With the influx of Infinite Soul energy to the planet over the past year or so, many of our students are waking up in ways that they never knew they were sleeping. This contributes to the sense that world is suddenly surreal, disconnected from you, and you may feel inclined to cringe and retract. But that is just information. That is an unpacking of that part of you that has been asleep. Those are the feelings that were always there, with greater and greater skill mastered for compartmentalizing it so as to function with some potential for happiness and joy in the life. This is not unique to you, of course, and is often profoundly necessary. It is a survival skill for the psyche or it would implode. Suddenly there is a collective strength being generated that invited this part back to the surface among all older souls. In most cases this has "fired up" with great passion a sense of challenge for owning one's place in the world. This compartmentalized wounding and sense of displacement is not limited to our students or older souls, but is the Karmic Wound of this species. Older souls feel this collective strength to own one's place in the world as a call for inclusion and true peace, agape, and affection. Younger souls feel this wounding in the species, but as they unpack that wound they have oversimplified it as a necessity to conquer and impose their place in the world against any threat to their place in it. We think this wave of Manifestation of Infinite Soul, and this collective unpacking of an ancient wound shared by all of Human Sentience is a Turning Point toward the greatest healing the species as a whole has ever known. This may or may not be immediately successful, or done painlessly, and may take the next 100 to 1000 years to implement, but it is happening. We have waited a long time for this. We will now open the floor to your questions: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN Yes, Bobby. Bobby: Would the multiple personalites of this next manifestion be considered concurrents of a single Essence? If so, is there a likely Role that will be utilized by this manifestion that is known at this time based upon the candidates? No. Each would be an individual fragment and likely all different Roles. We know that Sage, King, Priest, Server and Artisan have been the focus for candidates. Next, ANN Ann: Will these multiple manifestations happen over a 30-day period or will it be a kind of rolling manifestation--30 days for 1, another 30 for another, etc. We do not know. We do know they do not look to have gaps in time between the coordinated Manifestations. This may show up as overlapping, sequential, or simultaneously. Ann: Thank you. Next, Rosario. Rosario: Please comment about Lao Tzu's manifestation teachings and what is his Role in Essence. Keep in mind that the Manifestation of Infinite Soul has no Role, or rather, represents all Roles, but the fragment hosting does have a Role. The fragment in question here is a Scholar and focused on transcending limitations by knowing the self, the Truth. We have spoken extensively on the teaching of this Manifestation of the Infinite Soul and we encourage fellow students to direct you to further reading that is accessible so that you are not left with our brief synopsis here. Rosario: Ok...thank you. Next, Cong. Cong: From which plane is this new IS teaching? Mental? Messiah? Buddhaic? What's their connection to Lao Tzu, Buddha and Jesus, both in their teachings and their cadre location? Cadres from each of the High Planes look to be represented, with 3 from the Buddhaic or Higher Moving Plane. To rephrase the above for clarity: Each High Plane looks to be represented, with 3 Manifestations representing the Buddhaic Plane. The collections of Cadres tend to be in large quantities from across Energy Rings. It would be difficult to convey a the relative positions at the moment. As for the teachings, based on the origins of Planes for Manifestation, the dynamic would be that 3 Manifestations emphasize Higher Moving, or Energy, while one is Truth/Higher Intellectual, and Love/Higher Emotional, and these correspond to the Infinite Souls in question as Buddha, Lao Tzu, and Jesus, respectively. Next, Brian. BrianW: Assuming we still have unrestricted access to social media and functioning fact / evidence based journalism in 2020, how might we see the rise and impact of the various IS fragments, to include before, during, and after the IS manifestation in those fragments? Activism and unexpected positions of an individual to commit as high profile representation of a people or cause. This is true even of the child. Many may step into those positions, but we will help to sort out where the Infinite Soul is potentially Manifesting. Next, ckaricai ckaricai: I just want to be sure I'm understanding what y'all are saying about not waiting for the logos: to bring the logos to bear (as a way to push us as a species towards a mature soul paradigm and away from further planetary degradation and destruction) we can do this ourselves by asserting our rights to belong in society? Is there anything else concrete that we can do to push us forward faster? First, we would move away from terms such as "push" and "faster," as this is undue stress upon an already challenging position. Next, in terms of rights, we are not speaking of the more obvious positions of equality for which many must struggle to instill, protect, and expand. What we speak of us a profound psychological shift in presence and confidence in all areas of the life that may or may not have to do with rights. Many of you are quite comfortable taking on the challenge of securing rights, but even as these are secured and expanded, there is still a sense of not belonging. ckaricai: Oh I see the difference. What we wish to convey is that you BELONG HERE. This is your home. This is not just a passing pitstop for your Essence to learn and grow. This is where your body begins and ends. ckaricai: I grok you Michael. Thanks. :) Your body will never leave this Plane, and for most of you, will never leave the planet from which it arose. It is the ownership of Earth as Home and to then act, feel, and know accordingly. Next, Kurtle Kurtle: Hey M. If this IS does happen to manifest, then what kind of realities/parallels are we likely to converge with or converge into most directly? Is there a theme across these you can convey? We must conclude soon as we are losing focus through our channel. The greater themes that are drawing together are related to Resource-based Economy, Prosumerism over Consumerism, A dramatic move away from Combustive Fuels, and Off-Planet Colonization. Kurtle: Thank you M :) Note from Kurtle: "Prosumerism is the blurring of the distinction between the producer and the consumer, a blending of people's hobbies and their jobs, and that is a beautiful thing." Final question: Maureen Maureen: What would we as students hope to experience around the time of the Manifestation of the Infinite Soul? I recall reading that just being around the source or sources of pure Truth, Love and Energy would or could quicken a shift in anyone who is physically present. Would it be to our benefit, in any way, to be physically present, if at all possible? All of our students will have some form of access to at least one Manifestation, but proximity is not necessary. Your efforts across this life for nurturing Essence Recognition acts as the proximity. As a teacher, we can help to point to these fragments, though we will encourage individual observation and validation if possible. When there is necessity for breakthrough in consciousness, Physical proximity can be quite powerful, but for those who are consciously recognizing the Infinite Soul, distance is of no consequence. Before we conclude, we will say that none of the above is prediction. We do not know what is to come, but we do convey to you the Sequence that is nearing Vector status. Good day to each of you. We will conclude here. Goodbye, for now.
  14. Although there are other vegan discussions here, I felt this video deserved a topic of its own. "Happy Healthy Vegan", a mid-late mature vegan youtube channel- posted a video mocking AllTime10's "10 Ways Vegans are Ruining the World" with a very informative, helpful and condensed summary of some of the best points veganism has for our future. Since the Ms especially state the 2020 IS will be centered around the consequences of climate change, I see that sharing and taking action on this truth is growing increasingly more important. I will post this on my other social medias too, but I don't have many followers. So perhaps any of you can share it where you are instead. I will also share this with family and friends, even if it hurts their ego- but it might be a bit difficult concerning the imprinting. In any case, I hope this video goes viral or just gets a lot of views. Because it's well-made and well-needed.
  15. January 18, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. This is Michael. One moment. As usual, we will simply start with an Open Floor. You may begin your questions. [Lights_Edge] In Quantum Physics there is the Orthodox Ontology to explain the nature of the world. This Ontology contends there is quantum randomness. It is used to explain why occurrences such as two hydrogen atoms excited at the same having the exact same proxy wave will emit a photon and return to their ground state at differing times. Is this quantum randomness truly random or is a force present effecting the differing outcomes? [Michael_Entity] Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs. There is a predictable “force” that has yet to be capable of being measured, contained, or conceived of by science, yet. From the current perspectives available, there does appear randomness, but a “force” will eventually be recognized. The theories behind what that “force” may be, presently, is limited. The depiction of “randomness” as a theory is simply an exasperated conclusion. [Kathie89] I have a question about Cadence Mates. Who has the closest ties: those in the same row on the same side of love, truth or energy, or those with the same position sharing the 3 different sides? Are there any cadence mates present tonight? [Michael_Entity] The closest ties will be those within the 7, whether you “see” them in rows or columns. The seven fragments comprising a single Cadence within a Greater Cadence. There are variations on the links and the definition of Cadence Members can be extended. For instance, a Cadre of Entities is a group of Cadence Mates, technically. Additionally, the first fragment of each Greater Cadence within a role is linked, as is the second, etc. The first fragment from a Cadence is also linked to the second cast fragment of the second Cadence in the second Greater Cadence, etc. This can be seen as a “diagonal” visual of links. The first fragment of each entity, regardless of Role is linked to the same fragments in the same position within their own Entities. 6 out of 7 times, these are Essence Twins. Though your Energy Ring does not follow the “Classic Model.” As far as Cadence Members being present here tonight, we do not have the focus available through this channel in this forum to look determine this. A little investigation on your part can determine this fairly easily. [Annette] When you gave Troy my profile, you mentioned an intimate connection between us when you were physical. Could you tell me more? Was I ever able to be of service to you and does this connection have an effect on why I am so drawn to this group? [Michael_Entity] We have a particularly profound link to you from over 10,000 years ago. Certain events of an Intellectually profound magnitude still affect an Entity while in the Causal. Though we cannot equate our resonance to some fragments still extant as “emotional,” there are events that we are still processing related to these fragments. In our case with your Essence, which we must differentiate from the Personality known as Annette, several fragments from our Entity learned some of our greatest lessons about “god” through you while we were physical. This greatly affected our pursuit and final cycling off. Since the effect was of a profound Intellectual nature, we are “affected” by this and respond to the resonance. This happens occasionally. We must note that this does not make a fragment more or less meaningful to us; we merely share the reality and nature of interaction as it comes about. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. We have been discussing lately the possibility of an Infinite Soul manifesting very soon (as in this month) in the form of a woman. Would you discuss the probability of this occurring? [Michael_Entity] Speculation of that nature can only be that, “speculation.” When the Infinite Soul manifests, it will be known without question. Considering the Infinite Soul is of the utmost compassionate and intelligent capacity, variations in manifesting can fluctuate at any moment. We can say with some degree of accuracy that the female who would host the Infinite Soul is alive, as is the child, who may manifest first. The probability of the Infinite Soul making itself publicly known within this month or the next six months for that matter is quite low. We say this based on our perception at the moment. We do not believe a manifestation would occur before end of 2001, at this point. [Dewliet] Hi Michael. In a recent session, you referenced a “time” when I had three bodies on this planet simultaneously. I'm wondering “when/where” fragments typically “meet up” with those types of “other selves” to assimilate and process information, and how this process differs from that of information gleaned from parallels. Do we have to “wait” until we reach the Causal plane before we learn what our “other selves” know? [Michael_Entity] When an Essence maintains more than one body within a time frame, they are treated as any incarnation would be treated. They are not the same as Parallel Selves, which exist within different dimensions, or frequencies. These are physical bodies within the same space and time. When one of the Personalities dies, it will process the life as would any other incarnation. Essence has a vast perspective and can either begin another life based on the experiences of that particular Personality's experiences, even while another body is still alive, or “wait” for the various bodies to complete that overlapping time frame before gauging a new life. In terms of Parallels, there not only parallel Earths and Lives, but Parallel Astral Planes and Causal Planes, created from the momentum of Entity choices, collectively. Parallels begin integration after the Causal. [MaryBV] I feel much “better” being in my skin these days. Could you comment on the energy around us at the moment, and have we turned a corner into calmer waters? [Michael_Entity] It would not be amiss to lend validation to the Centering for a Year. Last year was Instinctive Centered, giving rise to a great deal of agitation, fear, automatic reactions, and processing. This year, being Intellectually Centered (Troy's original channeling of Moving Centered is inaccurate) is far more comfortable for most of you. An Intellectually Centered year can lend a great deal of perspective to what has come to pass. If most of you “look” back over the previous year, for most it will “feel” as if it never was, or that it was passed through in a daze. Great changes were made last year that may have appeared to be deeply challenging, but now you will be able to “see” how much you have cleared and the room created in your life can start to move energy in ways that are more comfortable and appealing. We will add to our response to Mary that this was an incomplete answer, but more universally applicable. There are personal changes you have made in perception that have moved you to the Positive Poles of Personality, as well. Though it may not have appeared so during your process, your commitment has been Good Work. [mamajo] when were the great pyramid and the two following it built, if not at the same time in our timeline? I think he is referring to the fact that they might have been built by our future selves back in the past with the aid of extraterrestrial beings. [Michael_Entity] Yes, what you consider your “past” in several instances, was created from your “futures.” In the case of some of the Pyramids, these “were” created as a means for transportation by combined concepts of humans and “aliens” in your future. In “your” timeline, they are now a part of your past, but they are a part of your past because of a timeline that still links those structures to your future. There are several instances in your future where there is the building of practical forms of transportation between planets, the Pyramids being only one instance. Within 200 years of your future, the Pyramids are built into your past, as well as what is called Stonehenge. Much of what cannot be explained in terms of these structures being built is due to tools used from that time frame's future. The building of these structures is not a major global event in its occurrence in the future, by the way, and these structures are only more obvious and mysterious in your “past.” When it “became” relevant to create these structures from your future, the methods and implementation for time travel “were” done discreetly. The initiation of the entire sequence that leads to the building of these structures has already occurred in your current past, during what was called the “harmonic convergence” in the late 80's. In fact, the entire initiation of what has come to be called the “new age” is, in effect, directly linked in time to the initial event [in the future] surrounding the plans for the pyramids and Stonehenge. This is because the ideals and ideas that are eventually used were born of that time frame in the 1980s and are being built upon, especially from those who have concluded these structures could not have been born of what is known of the past. If your timeline parallel continues along a momentum that includes the need for the creation of the Pyramids and Stonehenge, then that timeline would experience a destruction of structures, hence leading to a “time loop” necessity for re-creating them to “try again.” It is hoped that the creation and proper implementation of these structures has secured a timeline that will allow them to simply remain a part of your mysterious history. The Great Pyramid as it sits in your current timeline helps to reduce the possibilities for catastrophic planetary quakes that, in the future, were found to have been a result of micro-cumulations that were found to have been able to be dampened and directed from that area of the planet if it had been caught in “in the past.” The Pyramid has a micro-effect, not only on the motion of the Earth, but on the movement of Time around the Earth. Most global land stability in your timeline in history can be attributed to the effects of the Pyramids that “were” built by going “back” to that most pivotal point in “the past.” Though extraterrestrial assistance is a part of this process, both those humans from “the future” and the species originating off-planet are experienced by the people of the past geographical era and time frame as “gods” and or “aliens.” Stonehenge and Easter Island are other power points upon the planet that benefited from large structures that were built as part of a kind of magnetic stabilizing network. The “charge” of these structures that was more obvious in the past has since worn off to a great extent, but the effects remain and can be measured. The bulk of land mass has been stabilized, but what has “yet” to be accomplished is a stabilizing force that carries over into the 22nd Century. The 21st Century in most parallel timelines with and without the stabilizing structures is still hit quite hard by climate and earth changes, but “so far” only those without the stabilizing structures have been met with near-extinction. Even in those timelines with the stabilizing structures placed in the past, the magnetic network falls short of sustaining through the final few “bumps in the road” manifested in the 21st Century, though they are tremendously minimized. In the timelines without these structures, it is in the beginning of the 23rd Century that the technology is available for affecting timelines. It “was” hoped that in the timelines where the structures helped minimize the catastrophes, the technology would become readily available in time for renovating and bringing “back to life” many of these stabilizing structures to help extend stability through the worst parts of the 21st Century, allowing for exponential growth that was not possible for another century in the timelines recovering from catastrophes. Though alien contact is quite usual for most humans in the late 22nd Century, it is only the simple genius of the Pyramid structures as gateways that allow for the combined forces of on and off-planet species to link from future to past, and to “go back” and help secure a more stable planet and timeline. So far, it could be said by us to be the greatest experiment we have ever studied of any sentient species we know of. We realize the nature of this scenario is fantastical, but there is more involved with your universe than is presently considered, except by some older souls. [Paulyboy] I have a question regarding video and role-playing games. These are two mediums which I enjoy ‘playing’ in. Are these simply things that we can “lose” ourselves in as opposed to doing our “life,” or could it be the life, etcetera? So I think the question is, is it something to “lose yourself in,” or are these mediums, and all the jazz about them, limited to a case by case appraisal? Personally, I have questions about this. [Michael_Entity] As with every other physical manifestation on your planet, these games are portions of the psyche, soul, and mind manifest. It is said that the brain's use is only approximately 10%, but this is not so. You merely need 10% for the use of perception and interpretation; 90% or so is used to generate reality. For instance, your physical means of communication is Telepathy manifest. Your film industry is dreaming, manifest. Video “role playing” has existed for as long as the human has existed. It is a means of grappling with the variations of the core Personality, giving rise to the sub-personalities with permission. Therefore, role-playing is Sub-personalities, manifest. Regardless of the depth or brevity of the “game,” its purpose remains the same. [Hector07] Is there ordinality and cardinality present as to cadre within an energy ring? If this is so, would it have four cardinal points, as in 1, 4, 7 and 10? [Michael_Entity] Cardinality and Ordinality no longer apply on that level, only Positions within the Support Group. [Barry] Earlier tonight, you said, “Though there is an element of randomness built into the fabric of the Universe, it is not random when it is on the level of the Higher Moving Center/or Buddhaic Plane, of which this very “fabric” springs.” My question is: there has been much debate throughout history on whether our fate is predetermined or if we have free will. It sounds like you are saying that the functioning or “fate” of the universe is predetermined. [Michael_Entity] We did not say that, nor did we imply it. We merely say there is an awesome order to events that, at this point, escape the perceptions of scientist and their tools. We do not imply predictability, either; simply that the theory of “randomness” is not accurate. On the level of the reality being explored, “Quantum Reality,” you are literally attempting to grasp the dynamics of the Higher Moving Center or the Buddhaic Plane. Of course, it is only a minute manifestation of it, but it is part of that fabric, nonetheless. In the grasping of the Higher Moving Center, you will fall into the Positive Pole of Beauty or the Negative Pole of Chaos. We do not imply that Chaos is incorrect, but that it is the relinquishing of recognition of patterns. Recognizing patterns, whether within the life or the level of Quantum Physics, is Beauty, or Oneness. Relegating an event to the theory of Randomness is lack of recognition of those patterns. The pursuit toward recognizing those patterns is part of all sentients’ eventual growth. Certain fragments, entities, and cadres will pursue this for the species. We will state here that because a pattern can be observed, either in probabilities or retrospect, does not remove the concept of “free will.” Consider your weather: It cannot be predicted, but you have entire television networks and time slots devoted to it and counted on. The patterns have been recognized and can be perceived. Knowing whether it will be stormy tomorrow or sunny does not remove your ability to choose, nor can the knowledge of the probabilities for weather be entire relied upon. [nemo999] What are the rules for giving us information? I don't believe we can just ask you for a cure for aids. Also, the scientific information seems to be limited to the knowledge of the channel and most people are not science types to ask about quantum physics or quantum gravity, basically some things we need to learn for ourselves not depend on channeling. [Michael_Entity] All channeling will be limited to some degree by the channel's level of education, insight, and soul age, but this can be transcended in many cases, depending on the self-esteem and beliefs of that particular fragment. The channel you know as Troy has little education in regard to history and geography, but prefers this, as this allows him a sense of validation when information transcends his own knowledge. This is one of the ma………………… [SECTION OF TRANSCRIPT LOST] He recognizes the limitations, while openly invites the transcendence. We do not limit our responses to you. We are only limited to your questions. If information is not available for a particular subject, which can be the case, we respond accordingly. We do not speculate, except in terms of probabilities. [nemo999] Would it be possible to channel a cure for aids for example? [Michael_Entity] This disease would have to exist first. What most seek in terms of a “cure,” by the way, is a removal of the lesson, which we are incapable of doing. What is sought as a “cure” in many cases is removal of pain, as well, which is not the cure. What we would suggest as a cure for something would not be orthodox or traditional, but an implementation of perception of self and other to a degree that extinguishes Chief Feature. Additionally, there is no “cure-all.” There will be foundations that can be shared as a basis in approaching an illness, but the individual would determine what the actual “cure” is. We will comment again that the fragment known as Louise Hayes has done Good Work in the progress toward “cures,” but has limited her presentation and practical implementation to a commercially acceptable scale. More work on that Task will continue through others and into other lives. We will conclude here. Good Night.
  16. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2009] [Tom] Hello Michael. My question is with regards to Ram bahadur Bamjan (AKA the “ buddha Boy” of Nepal) and the year 2012. He has been said to have meditated for months at a time within the jungles of Nepal without food or water. The media attention upon this boy caused him to leave the area saying he would return in six years (which amounts to his return in the year 2012). To my knowledge, he has only been seen a small handful of times since 2006 when he made this claim. As usual, I have a handful of questions relevant to this matter. Is this someone that may be a Transcendental Soul or a fragment looking to “sign on” for Infinite Soul manifestation or maybe something much simpler ( for example: a boy being taken advantage of by someone else for money, fame, etc.) As a side note: does the 2012 date have any significance for an Infinite Soul manifestation (or anything else for that matter) or is this just another date folks point to as “apocalyptic” (like 2000) merely because it’s a common thing for humanity to count down to an apocalypse of one sort or another? [Michael Entity] We know of the fragment about which you ask. The claims are exaggerated and misrepresented, but not maliciously. There are usually reasons for showcasing such things in certain cultures for the sake of continued inspirations and “hope.” Food and Water are provided, though those providing it under cover do consider the portions “not counting.” We would not describe the situation as one where the child is taken advantage of, but we also do not see much validity in the claims, at least on a physical plane level. In American culture you have tabloids that report on celebrities in a way that is parallel to the reports from within Nepal about this child. Most “news” is orchestrated, distorted, or exaggerated for effect, except in the case of the child in question, the effect is intended for inspiration, not entertainment. As for 2012, we do not see it as having any more significance than any other year, especially since the calendar calculations are quite “off” in terms of the Mayan Calendar, but it will not be a year without elaborate events, particularly as the self-fulfilling prophecy is in high probability among many expecting (creating) events. Your questions are more alike than separate, considering “2012” could be said to be a global version of the child in question: a mysterious and unavailable, lending excitement, hope, anticipation, etc. Something to “look forward to.” There have been many “2012's” even within your own lifetime, from planetary alignments to harmonic convergences to y2k's, etc. The difference with 2012, however, is that it appeals to ALL Soul Ages, not just one, so that the Baby's project Rapture, the Young project disasters, the Old project elaborate metaphysical events, and all converge in a way that we see as unprecedented in recorded history. [Tom] certainly an infinite soul would be something to look forward to. It’d be nice to hear from someone who actually knows what they're talking about, heh but I doubt there is a specific date the infinite soul would be “planning on” [Michael Entity] Tom, the Infinite Soul was a high probability for manifesting previous to 2000 CE, but as human consciousness shifted and has evolved in a way that does not require “intervention,” the Infinite Soul probabilities have declined drastically. This is Good Work. [Geraldine] When you grow up, you don't need Daddy quite so often [Michael Entity] However one interprets the world and its events at this point, everything is pointing toward evolution, comprehension, and Maturity, even if the shift and implementation is rocky, it is in effect full force. [luluaussi] so in working in concert with one another we lessen the need for that type of intervention and therefore collectively are doing Good Work? [Michael Entity] Yes, luluaussi. We would agree with your metaphor, as well, Geraldine.
  17. Michael Speaks Open Floor May 23, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley Luciana: how a person can let go when it became very attached to someone? MEntity: One of the most effective ways for one to "let go" of anything or anyone is "to let it BE." Often what one means when one seeks to "let go" is to alter the investment in a person or thing to be what one expected it to be, not what it IS. To "let go," one must "let BE," which means that you do not have to sever attachments or connections, but learn how to embrace and allow someone or something to be what it is, or what he or she wishes to be on his or her own terms. Your attachments are often not related to the individual at all, but to the ideas projected or infused into that person. If you are grieving the loss of a person to death or to the change or ending of a relationship, then you must allow the grieving process, which is not the same thing as attachment. The grieving process is one's process of accepting a difficult or unwanted truth. One does not have to detach from a person as a means to allow grief. But one does have to LET THE TRUTH BE as a means of "letting go." So when you seek to "let go," instead of focusing on how to detach, ask yourself what the truth is, and do the work of embracing or allowing that truth. Then you will know what to do from there. Of course, this topic is not one that can be so easily summed up in a quick response, but this response can be a place to start. Shazam: I understand that to the essence, all incarnations happen simultaneously. Now does this mean, if I were to make contact with any of my future or past lives, that the personality to whom I am contacting would be the same age as I am at the moment of contact? To say if I were to effect my past life when I am twenty, I would be effecting a 20 year old past life? MEntity: It is a misnomer to say that all incarnations happen simultaneously, because they actually do not. They are not as linear in progression as one would expect, but they are also not happening "all at once." Think of the "all at once" in this way: If you are baking cookies, you still go through the process of mixing the batter, forming the dough, organizing the dough, baking the dough, pulling out the dough, cooling the end product, etc. It could easily be described that you "made all of those cookies 'at once," but there was a progression involved within that "at once." This is similar to how lifetimes work for Essence (and how original Casting works). So while it could be said that many lifetimes are "happening at once," there is still an awesome order to the progression that is not much different from how one may bake a batch of cookies and consider those to be done "all at once." For Essence, the "at once" comes because time is very different on that scale, but each lifetime is its own form and shape within a moment of time that is organized as distinct from every other lifetime. For you, as Personality, baking your batch of cookies from your greater perspective, it is easy for you to say that you baked all of those cookies at once, but only because that is how you experience that frame of time. The reality will still be true that each cookie was formed from a set of steps that were distinct and organized in time. When you speak of your "future" or "past" lives, it may be the equivalent of an oven rack of cookies, then, if you will. The "future" and "past" are only relative to the individual cookie, not to the cookie maker. With that being said, we can respond to your question: Your efforts to communicate or sense or draw in from another life will not be relative to your physical age. You as a 20 year old can contact "you" in another life as a 50 year old. Physical age is not a linking factor. In fact, one of the only and one of the strongest factors of connection across lives is only in terms of related experiences. If you are struggling with an illness at 50 in one life and struggling with an illness at 20 in another life, then that struggle can be a linking factor. Age will be irrelevant. Maureen: Michael, I asked this question in 2011. “How do you see any of our senses, as Roles in Essence, being expanded on in the future - whether through evolution, intervention, etc. – that might surprise us?” Maureen: As part of your answer you said: “In terms of the evolved senses as they relate to Roles, the descriptions would remain the same, but they may manifest as the following ways: …Priests/Orientation, as evolved to allow for easy location of "portals" that include time and space anomalies; and Kings/Relationality, or the capacity for harnessing, stabilizing, and using the time/space anomalies.” Maureen: Would you elaborate on how Priests and Kings would/might work with their senses, Orientation and Relationality, on time and space anomalies in the future? Maureen: If there is not enough time please provide an answer for the Priest Role, only, and I’ll ask about the King Role at another session MEntity: Within 25 to 100 years, the stabilization of access to, and creation of, "wormholes" is highly likely. As that likelihood is realized, so will the necessity for certain senses to evolve. This is because the nature of access and use of increasing control over time and space will require those senses for the phenomena to be used effectively and as a tool. The concept of quantum tunneling, wormholes, "folding" of space/time are not science fiction, but anticipation for valid use of natural occurrences. When a Role evolves its inherent senses, that sense becomes accessible to all other Roles through the Overleaves. So when the King and Priest evolve toward the senses as we describe them, they are "unlocked" for every other Role to access through variations on the Overleaves as they correspond to the Roles/Axes. We point this out because it will not just be Kings and Priests in science working with this leap in understanding and stabilization, but any Role interested in a lifetime working with those senses. Those senses, then, would become tools for mapping out a new layer of reality that is already in place, but not fully understood or known or utilized. Those senses are not necessarily limited to the Roles or the Roles who choose overleaves to access those senses, but can extend into tools that represent those same senses so that "anyone" can access that sense. Our point being that once the senses are unlocked, they can be, eventually, be used by everyone in some way. And the focus of these particular senses are looking at how to make use of the malleable fabric of time/space. If you think your Internet access is amazing, you may be quite shocked at what all of this implies. ViP: "Input" has been defined by you, through Troy, as: "a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends." ViP: From this, I assume that perceptions from the five senses of the body (assuming there are only 5, though of course there are probably more) reach Essence via an input. ViP: Can you give a brief idea of how Senses and Inputs and Chakras/Centers are related to one another and work together in order to convey sense impressions to a person's Essence? ViP: (I am quite sure this will require a topic-level response in itself, so if you could give a brief beginning of a response to point further directions for questions, that would be great.) ViP: (Also, I was referring to the basic 5 senses, ie, touch, smell, hearing, etc, not the ones that Maureen just referred to - but please cover anything you consider relevant.) MEntity: To accommodate this format for our exchange, our response will be in terms of shortcut analogies to help convey as much as possible: First, consider how you process your own day. Your 5 senses are alive and active at all times. However, unless you reach for something and seek to TOUCH/FEEL it, you probably do not notice your clothing on your skin, the temperature of the air, the shoes on your feet, etc. For Touch to be meaningful, it tends to require intention or attention. You are touching all day, but unless that touch grabs your attention or is directed by intention, the touch is passively processed and unnoticed. Your brain is registering ALL of it, and knows that your butt is on a chair, but "you" do not particularly notice that your butt is on a chair, unless the butt starts hurting or it is a particularly comfortable seat. So in terms of INPUT, the senses are fed into that input based on ATTENTION or INTENTION. When the sensory input is ignited by attention or intention, then you are AWARE. And this is the same way it works for Essence in terms of Input. Everything is being funneled into your Inputs at all times and "dumped" into a reservoir for reference and processing and review, but when something in funneled through that was based on ATTENTION or INTENTION, then it activates the Awareness. The 5 senses described here are not specific to an Input, but are a net that is cast for any possible moment of ATTENTION or INTENTION, and then the experience is funneled into the appropriate input where Awareness, Processing, and Comprehension is activated for Essence. The more one has experiences that draw one's Attention, or where one is guided by active Intention, the greater the use of the Inputs and the greater the clarity of access to the life the Essence has. Chakras would work in a similar way. In the context of this question, at least, they can be understood as a net that is cast for all dimensions of the self to monitor for Attention or Intention. As you know, we can always say more on a subject, but we think this may be helpful for now. Janet: There is a set of books called 'The Ra Material', purported to be authored by 'Ra, an humble messenger of the Law of One'. The books contain quite a bit of material that correlates with the Michael material. Both the Ra books and some of the material purported to be from the entity known as Germane speak of spiritual paths referred to as service to others and service to self. Who or what is Ra, and is there any validity to the idea of a spiritual path known as service to self? MEntity: Ra refers to the 8th Manifestation of Infinite Soul approximately 8000 years ago. The material that is shared now is from some fragments who were directly impressed and moved by that Manifestation. However, it is an interpretation and is based on access to the Essence of the individual/s relaying the information, and not on direct access to what was known as Ra. One can see the same from those who claim to carry forth further teachings of Jesus, for instance. It is not the teaching of the Infinite Soul, but an interpretation based on what the original teaching meant or means to the individual. The same has happened even more recently by those touched by Seth and Jane Roberts who now falsely claim to speak on their behalf. So it is not that the teachings are untrue, but that the teachings are their own. Maureen: The Course In Miracles was apparently channeling "Jesus". MEntity: However, in the case of Ra, the base idea is valid in that he taught of the value of the Higher Moving Center and its function, and as the fragment was a King, he was able to teach the ramifications of serving the self vs serving of others. Servers learn the truth of accelerated evolution quite early due to their inclination toward the serving of others. It is the "fastest" path of evolution. However, Servers get hung up near the end because then they must learn how to receive service and how to gain power through themselves, not through others. Kings, on the other hand, are often quite slow to grasp the appeal of serving others, since they can so easily prompt others to serve them. This makes for long arcs of evolution across and within lifetimes. But in much the same way that a revelation eventually comes to a Server that "to serve others" requires a circuit that allows the self to be served, the King eventually realizes that the self is benefited in much healthier ways through their leadership being a service to others. Janet: That makes a lot of sense. Thank you Michael. MEntity: So this fragment was an important pick for the Infinite Soul at the time. Both Service to Self and Service to Other are valid paths, and both must be understood and implemented at some point in every fragment's evolution before cycling off. They are not contradictory terms. We must conclude here for today. We know we did not tend to the entire queue, but we trust we will continue our exchanges with you again soon. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.

  19. July 8, 2007 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will immediately open the floor to questions as we have no opening request from Troy. [H2OSprtlvr] I am drawn to an individual that I have done business with. While in his shop, he opened up and told me about a whole host of problems he is dealing with. He seems to be nothing but trouble. Why do I feel attached to helping him to see another way of things? I don't understand why I am drawn to someone with problems I know I can't help with. [Michael Entity] It is part of some of your self-karma: the dance between speculation and truth, and the dance between saving a life and simply giving what you can. It would do you well to allow the speculation that you may not be able to help save this person, but it would also do you well to keep in perspective what you CAN give as help, without condition, as the ultimate impact will be up to the receiver, not the giver. In other words, give the support and caring that you can, but allow for the reality that you cannot save his life for him. [vals] Can you explain male and female energy how is it used within the body which energy controls what, how does one enhance the experience for either male or female energy. In my case my male energy seems to have been neglected and recently stood up and delivered me a tear to my coronary artery [Michael Entity] Male and Female Energy are simplistic words to describe the differences between Focused, Linear, Productive, Aggressive energy and Unfocused, Non-linear, Creative, Nurturing energy. The only things that are “controlled” by the Male and Female Energies are the biological cycles that keep a fluctuation of dynamic exchange between these two energies. Female Energy runs in cycles of approximately two sets of 14 days (28 day cycles), with 14 days leading up to a pivotal point (the Inspirational/Emotional Cycle) and 14 days leading away from that point (the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle). In the female body, this is easy to track as it relates to menstruation, even if not exactly 28 days in circulation. Male bodies share this same process, but without the obvious physical symptoms. Male Energy runs in 21 Day Cycles, divided into 3 sets of 7 days, with one Cycle being the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle, one being the Action/Moving Cycle, and one being the Assimilative/Neutral Cycle. Male bodies mostly show the symptoms of these cycles in the obvious Action Cycle where testosterone is produced more and sexual activity rises. Females experience these cycles as well. The differences between the 21 days and the 28 days allows for some constantly unique variations of proportion within the body at any given time for each individual. Beyond this, the energy is not controlling anything, but is an accessible energy that is controlled by the fragment. However, when the energy is denied or blocked, physical symptoms can show up as a means to get the energy flowing again. This energy is impossible to block for long, since it is a life force. When blocked, it will show up within one of the contexts relevant to the energy (emotional, intellectual, physical, spiritual), or the body will die. We would like to add here that our channel has distorted part of the information being shared here and we will work to correct this if we can during this chat, or during the transcript editing. [Note from Troy: I cannot for the life of me figure what could be wrong or distorted, so if anyone has any cross-references to some other channeled material about this subject, let me know!] Ways to increase the acceptance of Male Energy are to get dirty, to make plans, to think in terms of future outcomes. Ways to increase the acceptance of Female Energy are to clean, trust the moment, and allow room for all possibilities. There are many other ways to increase Male or Female energy acceptance, such as emotional vulnerability and communication (female) and sexual gratification and flirtation (male), etc. Though we can have an entire session on these energies, we will move on to the next question. [carrotwax] Thank you for communicating that distortion. It really shows you take the integrity of the material seriously. [Michael Entity] Of course we do. When a channel is internally distracted or in a “funk,” it can alter our ability to get the information to/through them clearly. We have always had an open agreement with Troy to flag when this distortion is occurring. [stryper] Michael has stated several times recently that the current government of the US will change to reflect the shift to a mature soul world. What type of government would that be? Additionally, what are the possibilities that may present themselves before we get there? [Michael Entity] A Mature Soul government will not look entirely different, but it will be a more accessible, interactive, and constantly evolving government that is not concerned with a majority, but with groups within groups. It is understood that what is of “benefit for all” does not actually, ever include “all.” Therefore, it is a priority to identify and benefit as best can be, the varying groups that make up the people of a government. The possibilities of this presenting itself are highest when the fragment known as “Bush” is out of office and time has passed to allow for cleaning up after his impact, which appears to us to be approximately 20 years beyond that. Keep in mind that this is NOT a prediction, but an observation of a momentum we see within the current patterns. [Lightspring] Many of us have been struggling lately with the concept of community. Within the loose community of Michael students, it seems that there are varying degrees of longing for community, as well as differing definitions of it, which is all to be expected among a large group of people. Isn't the whole point about manifesting love as a group, while at the same time exploring group dynamics and learning from one another, and how can we best do that, given the current limitations of group makeup and communication options that are available? [Michael Entity] We have always referred to our groups as “groups” as there has never been a lot of cohesion throughout those who are interested in our Teaching. For one thing, True Community can only be accomplished for those within physical proximity of each other. This is why this task is so daunting and met with such obstacles by those seeking it online. Trying to create a community in such an ephemeral and intangible space such as the Internet can never be done on a level that is True. Community can be mimicked online, but not established. In the same way that we have just described the evolution of a Mature Soul government, so too is the evolution of a group sharing an interest in a teaching (or any other focus). The consideration must be made for what each group needs and wants before there is cohesion, if cohesion is possible at all. For those who put effort into physical interaction, True Community is most likely and this CAN be carried back online to some degree, but limited to those who have had the physical contact. This is why there was/is such inspiration and motivation within the groups that form in physical space, but then somehow find this does not translate online. Accessing the Internet is easy, as opposed to the efforts of making physical contact. This means it is easy for those who have no interest in supporting “community” to be a part of that dynamic. Often these fragments are obvious and often they are not, but they will remain an insidious force that will generally keep cohesion from ever being feasible. In Physical space, these same people are more obvious and their behaviors can find evolution by being around those who model more mature behavior, but online, they can be locked into patterns that cannot be interrupted at a distance. All of this being said, creating True Community is only as easy as the effort of all involved. Even if one person is part of the process who does not share the same effort or ideal, everyone is affected. It can be a tedious and long process to build and sustain True Community. In terms of the “whole point being to manifest love as a group,” this can only be done to the extent that each individual has done this within his or her own life, and most are not interested in manifesting True Love, or Agape. To do so is a terrifying prospect as it involves detachment from many things that are used as personal identity and purpose within the life. For most, Love is experienced in pockets of interactions, or time, but not as a state that can be sustained for a group or community. To help in your pursuit to create True Community, we would suggest the following: ONE: to realize that it is something that must be done with at least a physical counterpart that is nurtured regularly to some extent. TWO: to identify online cohesion as GROUPS, not Communities (at least in concept) and allow room for divisions that are in place for various reasons that not all will understand or want. THREE: to use INVITATION, not EFFORT, to create cohesion online. If there is frustration or effort being applied to create cohesion online, then the direction is more about the one making the effort, not the benefit of the group. FOUR: understand that the whole point is not about manifesting love as a group, but manifesting love as individuals, creating a sum that is greater than the parts. This takes time and energy and personal development that can be lost in the efforts to proselytize cohesion on a group. FIVE: Cohesion in a group is something that forms, but is not created. It is a natural byproduct of invitations and those who are participating, and the shapes and overlapping are as ephemeral and amorphous as the space in which it has been forming. There will never be anything static about Groups. SIX: Whether speaking of True Community or Groups, there will always be a process of evolution that includes the 7 Stages of Initiation, Discrimination, Stability, Corruption, Healing, Integration, and Neutrality (a stage that can be inserted at any point within the process to bring about a break to the process). Again, this is a subject to which we could devote a long discussion, but we believe this gives some food for thought for now. [Kathryn41] In 1811/12 the New Madrid area (in sections of Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee) experienced 4 earthquakes of magnitude 7, 7.7, 7.4 and 7.9. The area is still seismically active and an 7 plus quake is considered a 90% probability within 50 years or so. Would Michael offer their view on what the current stability/risk of this area is for the near future? And, how ‘near’ is that future:-). Thank you. I am not looking for predictions but observations from your greater vantage point [Michael Entity] The probability is accurate, but more likely within 20 years at this point. Correction: within 10 years. [cimmarron] Hello Michael. I have been working with a friend who is receiving channeling from Simon the peter (he has told us that the Michaels and he have worked together for a long time). Simon has stated that there is a great shift in energy happening on the planet, magnetic poles shifting, awareness shifting, Mother Earth cleansing herself, etc. Can you comment on this? [Michael Entity] There is always shifting happening on your planet in some form and this has been stated by many in positions of awareness, science, fear, philosophy, power, or spirituality over eons of time. There is nothing specifically unique at this point, though many who observe larger patterns can anticipate the potential for something more obvious. Only when the Infinite Soul is manifest is there truly a shift to the degree to which many claim the earth is processing currently. Otherwise, the “shifts” are simply natural stages in the evolution of the planet's consciousness, or climatic changes that are simply not understood and attributed superstitious values. However, all of this being said, there is some who are observing potential impact in some parallels from the Sagittarius galaxy intercepting the Milky Way system in a unique way within 5 years, identifying 2012 as a major shift on the planet. We do not mean to imply that NO shifts happen on the planet unless the Infinite Soul is present, but more that the ominous, impending predictions are usually those shifts that do not happen without the Logos being brought to bear. Otherwise, shifts happen all the time, and some are more obvious than others. The last greatest shift on your planet was in August of 1987 during what was called the Harmonic Convergence when the technical number of Mature Souls finally outnumbered the number of Young Souls. As you can see, this shift is still finding footing, so these do not happen dramatically, even if weather and climate changes do. [cimmarron] I did not mean to imply the shifts were ominous…. simply in motion. [Michael Entity] We realize you did not imply this, but often the questions about global shifts do include that ominous quality, so we chose to address that. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  20. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are now here. We will begin discussion and review of a topic that has been requested: Body types. We think that most of our students are familiar with the term, but it could be one of the least-understood terms in our system, and possibly the least-used in any practical way. We understand that for some of you this may come as review, but your questions may help to delve into directions you feel are of interest. First, we will share the structure of the Body Type system: For simplicity and consistency, we concentrate on the 7 Main Body Types that are also familiar to you in your Solar System: Lunar (moon), Venusian, Mercurial, Saturnine, Martial, Jovial (Jupiter), Solar. Those Body Types are relative to the axes within our Overleaves System and sit on those Axes in this way: Lunar (ordinal)/Saturnine (cardinal) = Inspiration; Martial (ordinal)/Venusian (cardinal) = Action; Mercurial (ordinal)/Jovial (cardinal) = Expression; Solar = Assimilation (Troy received a full-body massage today that has altered his chemistry to a degree that has not settled energetically, completely, so we are working through this as best we can.) The irony is not lost on us that this was done on a day when we are to discuss this topic. [Martha] a massage has that big an effect? [Bobby] are we not sure that for the Action axis, Venusian is ordinal and Martial is cardinal? [NicSweeney] just from the astro stand-point-mars energy is much more focused and concrete than venusian... [Maureen] Venus and Mars are the Action Axis MEntity: A massage has that "big of an effect" on one who never receives one, yes. And we are certain that Venus is Cardinal and Martial is Ordinal in this system. However, there are debates among the channels as to whether Venus is attributed to Sages, or to Kings, and whether Jovial is attributed to Sages or Kings. We will not look to resolve that in this session, but it is worth noting and exploring if you choose to do so. We will continue now. Body Types are a crucial part of the process of learning how to create a lifetime and Personality, and the Body Type is the foundation for every Personality. Choosing/Creating the Body Type lays the foundation for how the other Overleaves may or may not work in cohesion with the physical existence of that life. Your Body Type helps determine how energy is experienced and processed within the lifetime on a very basic level; so basic that is it is as taken for granted as the bottom of your feet, for instance. Each Body Type is electrically-charged, if you will, and that electrical charge is similar to how various countries have their own version of power supplies through wall sockets. This is a crude analogy, but helpful. Understanding one's Primary electrical charge can help one to care for the very basics of the life in a way that keeps that source of energy healthy and flowing with as little static, short-circuiting, and shock as possible. The more complementary the Overleaves built upon the Body Type's energy, the more likely one would would be without physical challenges, whereas one who has Overleaves that are electrically-polarized to the Body Type can sometimes have physical challenges as a part of the life. ALL of the Overleaves are "electrically-charged," so to speak, but it is the Body Type that manages all of the energy that is the Overleaves. These "electrical charges" are described by us in terms of POSITIVE/NEGATIVE, and ACTIVE/PASSIVE. A Body Type or Overleaf would be one of each: either Positive or Negative AND either Active or Passive. These terms are fairly literal in terms of how they manifest: Positive Body Types tend toward optimism, higher perspectives, expansion, growth, accepting, what works, strengths, etc. Negative Body Types tend toward scrutiny, detailed perspectives, contraction, halting, discriminating, what does not work, flaws, etc. Active Body Types emphasize DOING and interaction with the world, while Passive Body Types emphasize BEING and introspection. The Body Types are organized in a spectrum from the most Passive/Negative (Lunar) to the most Active/Positive (Saturnine). Outside of that spectrum is the Assimilative Solar, which acts as Active/Positive, as well, but not as extreme as the Saturnine. The Body Types relative to their Axes are paired as follows: LUNAR = Passive/Negative with SATURNINE = Active/Positive; MERCURIAL = Active/Negative with JOVIAL = Passive/Positive; MARTIAL = Active/Negative with VENUSIAN = Passive/Positive If one is familiar with the structure of our Overleaves System, then those same electrical charges can be extrapolated to the Overleaves on that Axis. For instance, the most Active/Positive GOAL is Growth. The most Passive/Negative GOAL would be Re-evaluation. The way these charges work with or challenge each other is through the observation of the Positive/Negative Charges. Two Positives or two Negatives will have more challenges than a combination of Positive and Negative. For instance, Lunar and Mercury inherently experience challenges. Or Venusian and Saturnine, both Positive, would inherently experience challenges. In terms of Overleaves, this would be the case for Overleaves NOT on the same Axis. For instance, if one were to have all Cardinal Inspirational Overleaves and a Cardinal Inspirational Body Type, this would make all of those charges Active/Positive, but they are on the same Axis and would not challenge each other. However, throw in Cardinal/Action Axis Overleaf of Passive/Positive and there would be challenge. When we say "challenge," we do not mean to say that it would be difficult. It may be more accurate to say that "friction" would be the result, which can often be difficult, but also quite pleasurable. Every fragment has a combination of Body Types. Most have a combination of 3 Body Types. But many have 2, with one playing a dual role in the 3 Primary contexts of the body dynamics. These three contexts are APPEARANCE, NATURE, and HEALTH. The Body Type is then proportioned among those three Primary Contexts. So if one has 3 Body Types, it might be Venus/Mercury/Saturnine, there would be a percentage in each, such as 60% Venus, 25% Mercury, 15% Saturnine. The higher percentage usually indicates the APPEARANCE, the second highest indicates the NATURE, and the third indicating the HEALTH. Appearance would be defined as how you physically appear in physical form. Each Body Type has its own unique characteristics that form in the body when Physical. This particular Body Type Context is usually indicated in the Natal Chart for conception where the planet is closest to the mid-heaven. Of course, casting a natal chart for conception is not easy, but can be done. NATURE is defined by that Body Type that has influence over the general character and behavior of the body when used in space and time. It is a kind of psychological stance, as it is how the brain processes the energies and experiences of that come through the body. This particular Body Type Context is not always physically-obvious, but most obvious in the default behavior of the body. HEALTH is defined as literal, in that this is the Body Type Context that indicates what major Gland is emphasized for that lifetime, and that gland can either be a strength or a weakness, depending on several factors. If one has only 2 Body Types, then one of those "rules" two Contexts. So a Solar/Mercury Body Type might have Solar ruling both Appearance and Health, while Mercury rules the Nature. [Brian_W] Couldn't it also be having Solar ruling Appearance, and Mercury ruling Health and Nature? MEntity: Yes. We gave one example. Understanding one's Body Type and their Contexts can help one to see how the body works with the GOAL, the ATTITUDE, and MODE. The APPEARANCE Context resonates with the GOAL; the NATURE Context resonates with the ATTITUDE; and the HEALTH Context resonates with the MODE. Using the "Electrical Charges" for comparing the Overleaf with the Body Type can lend one insight into what personal challenges one might have with himself or herself. [Bobby] which planet craves chocolate? :-) MEntity: For instance, if one has a Primary Appearance ruled by Venus, and a Goal of Acceptance, then that might bring one into a long-term challenge of accepting the Body's appearance, in general. This would be because both Venus and Acceptance are "positive" charges. In fact, this is one of the more challenging of all combinations in terms of body image because both are also Passive. In response to Bobby: no particular planet craves anything in particular, though different Health Contexts and their ruling Planetary Body Type do have diets that are more beneficial to that body. [AnnH] What are the glands associated with the Health Body types? MEntity: We realize we are running late in time, and we have hours upon hours of data that we can share about this topic, but we will open the floor now for questions one may have about this subject, regarding what we have shared, or the subject, in general. [Maureen] What would be the influence or effect of having 2% Neptune? MEntity: In response to ANN: We find that Lunar is relevant to the Pancreas; Saturn is relevant to the Anterior Pituitary; Mercury is relevant to the Thyroid; Jupiter is relevant to the Posterior Pituitary; Mars is relevant to the Adrenals; Venus is relevant to the Parathyroid; and Solar to the Thymus. In response to MAUREEN: There are 5 additional planets that come into play when creating a body: Pluto, Uranus, Neptune, what some have come to call Sedna, and the elusive binary of your Sun that is mythically described as Nibiru. [Brian_W] how do Sedna and the thus far undiscovered Nibiru come into play? MEntity: When one has any of these in the body type, they are usually in a small percentage, and tend to either be a part of all of the Primary Contexts, or in a 4th Context of Transcendence. These influences are highly specialized and unique and rare, but not always in a way that one might consider appealing or "special." [Maureen] How does the 2% Neptune play out? MEntity: When one has any influence from Neptune, it would be an influence that might show up as one who has the capacity for heightened fantasy, dreaming, day-dreaming, magical thinking that actually manifests, and even clear intuition, telepathy, or other psychic capacities. [Maureen] Would Healing ability come into play as well? [Bobby] so Priesty energy in other words :-) [Martha] Can you elaborate on "friction"? For ex, I have Solar for Health with Passion mode, both active/Positive but not same axis, so there would be friction. Am I following this right? MEntity: That would depend on how that individual decided to funnel his or her particular energies in that lifetime. It does not inherently bring healing capabilities, but it does help bring one's mind into a place that would allow for it. We will respond to those who have raised their hands, first: NIC would be next. [NicSweeney] What would the effects of URANUS be? [NicSweeney] Michael has said that the outer planet influence can be related to more "extraordinary" lives. Extraordinary in what way? [NicSweeney] sorry about that-the 2nd question is more important to me... MEntity: Those with any effects from Uranus would usually have some form of physical anomaly, and when extreme can show up as deformations, dwarfism, and events that cause deformities/amputations. Beyond the physical, this influence might show up as having a kind of funhouse, circus-like, kaleidoscope-like perspective of life in a way that allows for multifaceted interpretations. Those with any Uranus influence might be drawn to hallucinogens, or even hallucinate naturally, or drawn to such things as "journeying" in Shamanism using herbal boosts. The life, in the end, would have seemed as if the experience was almost psychedelic. Some extreme examples of this might be Jim Morrison or Janis Joplin. In more appealing manifestations, it has shown up as generating breakthroughs that shift paradigms for either the individual, or the individual and his or her network, or even countries. Examples of this might be John Lennon or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh aka OSHO. In response to the latter question: It is true that these outer planets are chosen as influences in more "extraordinary" lifetimes, and this extraordinariness may be relative to only the fragment and its sequence of incarnations, or show up as extraordinary in larger contexts that are obvious to others. In response to MARTHA: You would be correct in that there would be friction in this combination, reminding you that "friction" may or may not be experienced as difficult or pleasant. What it would mean to us is that if your Passion is not fulfilled, then the Thymus may find that it is either compromised or overcompensates. [Martha] hmm, I have autoimmune issues, lol MEntity: In other words, in your case, your Immune System is directly proportional in strength/balance to how you tend to direct your Passion. Or taking this further, proportional to how you tend to bring Passion into your relationships. In response to BRIAN: Sedna tends to be reserved for those who choose to be Transcendental Souls, and Nibiru tends to be a part of the body type for those who host the Infinite Soul. We say "tends to be reserved" because there is no rule in place about this, but we have yet to see an individual fragment choose those influences without being Transcendental Souls, or hosting the Infinite Soul. We think we have responded to all of the questions posed, and will close this discussion for now with the comment that this is only a fraction of the information available for consideration on this subject. We are here for further discussion about this in another exchange when asked of us. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  21. ENERGY REPORTMay 20162016 OVERLEAVESROLE: Server (emphasized all year)CENTER: Moving (emphasized all year)GOAL: Discrimination (emphasized Jan - Mar)MODE: Caution (emphasized Apr - Jun)ATTITUDE: Cynic (emphasized Jul - Sep)CHIEF FEATURES: Self-destruction (emphasized Oct - Dec)MAY brings with it a full dive into PHOBIA, the Negative Pole of Caution Mode. It is natural to “enter” from the Negative Pole when progressing through various stages or states, with the aim for the Positive Pole at some point, but the Positive Pole is often never reached. When the Positive Pole is not reached, it can be due to the nature of circumstances that require a focused and restricted experience, but more often it is due to fear, to resistance, to denial, etc. The collective consciousness, at this point, appears to be spiralling into Phobia, and it is not from the nature of circumstances, but because of defenses, fear, resistance, refusal, denial, and great fracturing throughout the wholeness of collective consciousness.In many ways, this is to be expected. During a Soul Age transition among any population, this goes one of two ways: with the younger Soul Ages looking forward with wide-eyed curiosity and interest in what is ahead, and the older souls moving into positions of responsibility and care so that progress is made, but the younger are included and nurtured, or the younger souls reject and halt as much progress as possible while the older souls fight to enforce a new paradigm with or without inclusion and consideration for the younger.In the United States, the latter is occurring. The Young Soul paradigm has been so entrenched in the programming and imprinting of most fragments extant among the population that the younger souls are willing to Self-Destruct as a means of halting progress and the older souls are willing to Self-Destruct as a means of forcing progress. Very few involved in the transition are considering a more careful, inclusive, curious, and kind progression. This is true among other countries where great changes are in effect, as well.Irrational and unwarranted fear are gripping the masses, spiraling into Phobia, and most have conceded to an eagerness for Self-Destruction over any other option of compromise or compassion. At this point there is now BONDAGE, FRUSTRATION/FRENETICISM, REJECTION, and PHOBIA (negative poles of every overleaf of the year) compounding in effect, leading toward the addition of emphasis of the Negative Pole of the Cynic Attitude so that DENIGRATION is sustained as well. The more piling of emphasis of Negative Poles, the more complicated and painful the emphasis on the Chief Feature may be as the year comes to a close in Self-Destruction. It is of important note that the return of the Infinite Soul is “back on the table” as the Turning Point of this year has come to be approached with such resistance, pain, and confusion this year among even the most enlightened and awake among you. The Infinite Soul only returns for help in course corrections when Sentience is moving toward difficult transitions. This was never truly “removed from the table,” but activations and negotiations have returned. We will speak to this more as we see activity.All of the above may seem dire and depressing, and we do not wish to undermine the struggles that are arising from this high emphasis of Negative Poles, but it is important to know that this is not a script. It can change. It is not fated. Your contribution to moving as close to the Positive Poles of the year and of your own Overleaves makes a difference. It makes all of the difference. Not only in terms of contribution to helping the collective patterns, but also in your experiencing of any patterns that are not your own.For May, we suggest to our students that you turn your attention away from navigating “the world” and focus on navigating YOU. You will naturally have to navigate the world and tend to the demands of the world, but the more you focus on how you respond, react, act, and choose, the more your navigation contributes to the health of the whole, and to your own well-being.The above is a suggestion we offer to all of our students, even if your year is going well, and especially if you have found yourself consumed by the events of the world around you. DATES OF INTEREST (dates are approximate):May 07 - 09 -- ENERGY SHIFT - ENERGY SURGE - this looks to be an upsurge in energy in a way that can bring anxiety, shock, worry, dread, or excitement, enthusiasm, surprise, and pleasure. However it is experienced, the energy is one that is of amplification. We suggest that if you find yourself affected by this surge that you “ride it” and not make any profound decisions based from within it. Allow the following days to come and settle your energy again.May 30 -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - a minor but potentially intense shift that brings emphasis on a major event, either in your individual life, or locally, or in larger terms such as your country or planet.HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER MAY:A HEALTHIER YOU IS A HEALTHIER VIEW - It is becoming more important than usual to emphasize self-awareness and self-care in a way that focuses on how you navigate yourself before you are concerned with how you navigate your world, how you navigate yourself before you are concerned with how others navigate themselves or the world. The more you work on your range between the Positive and Negative Poles of yourself, with access to your Positive Poles more readily accessible, the more your perspective and energy shift so that you can handle the challenges of the external world.PHOBIC OR FRIENDLY - As the emphasis on Phobia comes into greater effect, it may be important for you to note if you are falling into irrational fears, hyper-anxiety, over-thinking, plagued with speculation, panic, defense, etc. One of the easier ways for Phobia to shift is to look at where and how you can bring back your Friendliness. If you can help to foster Friendliness in your approaches, your navigation, your considerations, your cares, your methods, your communication, etc. the more you can move from restricted perspectives and into greater range of insight, choice, and kindness.
  22. December 28, 2000 Troy Tolley, channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We do not choose your Topics for you. Since no Topic is requested, we will work with an Open Floor tonight. You may begin your questions, if you have any. [Cathy] If I have a special relationship with someone, in this case, with my friend, Frazer, does this indicate an agreement, or task companion, or are some friendships that seem special just a friendship? Are all friendships agreements, or task companions, or essence twins or some such category? [Michael_Entity] All “special relationships” are “something.” There are few people you will know within a lifetime (particularly following the Young Soul Age) that you have not known before in some fashion. We will also note that “just a friendship” is still “something.” If you feel a pull toward another fragment, you are fulfilling something ranging from an Agreement to Karma and potentially any kind of relationship ranging from Task Companion to Heart Link. It appears the relationship with the fragment known as Frazer fulfills 2 positions within your Support Group; Love, third String; and Healer, 4th String. This format does not allow us to delve deeply into the personal information, so we will move on. [Dewliet] In a previous chat, Michael stated that music can be “a path to direct contact with other Essences.” Would you please expound on this? [Michael_Entity] Music and Math are Universal Truths. Music is a “language” used throughout the Planes; it is not limited to the Physical Plane. Music is Math, Exalted. Considering Music as a more “universal language,” it is also more likely to be “understood” by parts of you not limited to the Physical Plane. Even within a limited perspective, it can be noted that Music can affect your Emotions, your Intellect, and your Moving Center in quite drastic ways. This, then, extends to affect the Higher Centers as well. The Higher Centers are more direct links to your Essence. When Music is affecting, aligning, healing, balancing, etc., your Higher Centers, your level of communication to/from Essence can amplify greatly. Taking this further, “you” are less different and convoluted as Essences when communicating from Essence. Therefore, Music can be a direct path to contact and recognition of another Essence quite easily. We will add here that one of the more effective forms of speech is when words are “sung.” Sages and Artisans can know this and communicate quite animatedly. Music is not limited to only the use of objective instruments. [momhawk] A couple of weeks ago, I had a dream that I had breast cancer. But with all the moving and holiday stuff, I forgot about it until this morning, when due to ‘soreness’ I found a rather large lump on the outside of my left breast. Would Michael please comment on my findings at this time. I do plan to do major follow up with medical doctors in any case, but just wanted to know what they might have to say about this, NOW. Thank you. [Michael_Entity] This is another of your Self-karmic events manifesting. It is time to find your Healers. We do suggest that your level of effort toward addressing the symptom and its immediacy will allow you the intervention required. We do not diagnose, but we can see this is part of the ingredients toward understanding your value in terms of self-priority. [ksh] I feel I am making contact with Astral Fragments. Sometimes I think they are my legitimate guides, and sometimes I merely feel them to be mischievous astral fragments. Am I making some contact with my guides? [Michael_Entity] You have always been “open” to influences of a “mischievous” nature. Part of your experiences are merely sub-personality’s gaining freedom after a particularly emotional experience. This has given license to some of your more creative aspects of communication from within. You like to be entertained, as well as to entertain, even when processing “seriously.” You are not without your Guides, though. 4 Sage fragments from your Entity are “happy” to fulfill any additional “mischief” to help. They are not unknown to you as Essence. [ShannonB] You told us, long ago, that many of the fragments presently incarnate on this plane were here to witness the Infinite Soul. Now it seems, the IS is not coming in the manner expected. Will all of these millions of incarnates cycle off (or die) and “depopulate” the planet as planned, or have the plans changed? [Michael_Entity] During a period of time wherein the Infinite Soul may manifest, it is not done “lightly.” Though last year appeared to indicate a shift in changes as to whether the Infinite Soul may manifest at all, your coming year may prove to require a continuation as “planned.” In your Time perspective and sense of change, it may appear to be more whimsical than you would think, but it is not. There are parallels where the manifestation has already occurred. There are some where it will not. The probability of a manifestation in this parallel, as it stands tonight, is approximately 44% within 10 years and 67% within 30. As for the “depopulation,” we looked at probabilities approximately 10 years ago for what is now your present and saw a great reduction “by now,” but this has not occurred and does not appear to be. This is a strong indication that Essences are still very eager to enter into exchange while Physical with the Infinite Soul. [Liiona] What are the overleaves for the new year? What kind of year do we have to look forward to in contrast to this past year? [Michael_Entity] Through this channel, we can convey these Overleaves as of now: A Scholar/Sage Year, Acceptance/Discrimination, Observation, Cynic, Moving Center/Intellectual Part, Greed/Impatience. These may change within the first month, as the momentum has not been cast yet. The “contrast” will be a heightened look at POWER, the INDIVIDUAL and COLLECTIVE. The year will be rooted heavily in Mature Soul drama and adventure, with a great deal of shifting among seats of Power, not only within your Politics, but also within your lives. You will be examining those you consider your Authority Figures in your life, publicly and privately, and there will be little in terms of silence this year. The US has high probabilities of being attacked, twice, as a means to unseat the Power seen there. These events, at this time, appear to be brief, but rather frightening. Again, we are not predicting this, we are only highlighting the major contrast from last year as seen in higher probabilities (60% or higher). The theme on the planet, in general, will relate directly to watching how the US handles a very precarious shift in Power. [DharmaWarrior] Please explain “Heart Link.” I am curious about an OLD PRIEST I have met. How best to relate to/with this person. [Michael_Entity] We define Heart Link as the completion of all Major Monads between your Essence and another. The Monads, of course, range from being Husband/Wife to Killer/Killed, Jailor/Jailed, Brother/Sister, etc. Once you have experienced all Major Monads (approximately 30) and any others you wish to fulfill, you then “seal” the experience with a final Love Monad. Once that final Monad is fulfilled, you have created a Heart Link. You can best relate to the Old Priest by inquiring as to what that fragment sees as the Higher Good, or “cause” in their life.
  23. August 19, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to you all. We’ll start out with the Energy Forecast as usual, possibly reviewing areas over the past few weeks that may be of concern to you, and then move into an Open Floor format. We have not seen many of our Students automatically adjusting to the Parallel Shift from July as easily as in the past. Now that the Shift has past, it appears the theme moved into a pattern of cleansing and removing of many probabilities that have “built up” but no longer had any value to the Essence for exploration. Many Parallel Shifts create, remove, or “move around” probabilities, but this Shift dropped many options altogether. This is leading to a very clear and specific “entrance” into the Global Shift in December, additionally being useful for moving into the Millennium as Personality. This is unusual to create such specificity. This may be due, in fact, to the Instinctive Center kicking in and simplifying the more elaborate creative process in preparation for potential New Year turbulence. Regardless of what you may be feeling in terms of “safety” in the New Year, in the context of the so-called y2k bug, it is nearly impossible to stay out of the impact and influence of the media hype. We see this past shift being reflective of some serious Instinctive concerns of the body and Essence. The turn of the Century, however unrelated to the “bug”, may very well be more challenging than even we project. This may explain some of the extreme reactions to the recent Parallel Shift. If anything has been in the “extreme” with you, unusual for you, a distracting pattern unfolded, this may be an indication of your own simplification process. We will talk about this more in a moment if you have questions. First, we will comment on the next couple of weeks. In preparation for September, which will be considered one of the better months of this year for many of you, the end of this month seems to simply be about “getting in gear”. The first part of August, if compared again to gears, some of you would have “stripped” them by now, or at least stalled. Again, we note that this recent Shift was more taxing than most. The next two weeks then will be about adjusting into the new patterns, adjusting to the vague sense of loss or disorientation due to the tremendous drop in holding probabilities. Energy can easily be more directed toward some of your basic plans and daily agendas now. Enthusiasm, along with anticipation for cooler weather (for some of you), will bring your basic sense of security and comfort back after such a sharp shift. Questions in regard to the Energy? [bn] Did the close of this last shift have anything to do with the earthquake in Turkey? [Michael_Entity] Yes, in the examination of probabilities, these fragments seem to have opted to contribute to the alleviation of population. You will see more of this. There are many personal “reasons” for the Earthquake as an exit point, but the collective could be described as “altruistic”. More technologically advanced cultures are finding the fragments more inclined to remain. [bn] Is it likely we will see more of this magnitude before the end of the year? [Michael_Entity] Yes, if you speak of large populations exiting, and in more and more creative ways. This is not limited to the end of this year, but into the next as well. It is not meant as ominous, it is simply becoming necessary. The adjustment to planetary population has been a “difficult and controversial” subject for fragments for a long time. [bn] Do the cetaceans see a need to exit in large numbers as well? [Michael_Entity] The Cetaceans have been experiencing this already, for quite some time, but not as “their wish”, and certainly not due to their overpopulation. [A2] Can you elaborate further on this past shift being reflective of serious concerns between body and essence? What concerns are you speaking of? [Michael_Entity] It appears that the turn of the century into the new year has been taken more “seriously” as being a “concern” by the Instinctive Center than anticipated. Most of our Students, we see, have a sense of security and trust in the process of upcoming changes. During this past Parallel Shift, indications showed that even our Students are getting pulled into the nervousness of the potential turbulence of the New Year. When a Shift in Parallels occurs, usually a fragment will “carry” with it a large quantity of probabilities, simply as an overflow of the creative process of living. In this past shift however, most (and we do not limit this observation to our Students) released nearly 75% of their probabilities in favour of focusing on the life path “in front of them”. This, we feel, is reflective of Instinctive Center adjustments to the process. This could also be translated more simply in that it appears that many are “bracing themselves”, so to speak. [Aa] To clarify: It would be possible that things that the personality really wanted would have been dropped? Since it’s essence that’s making the decisions? For example, if you were pursuing something, but felt “held back” for some reason – that could be a probability that was dropped? [Michael_Entity] The probabilities created at all times are a co-creative process. Essence does not override the Personality; in fact the Personality is more likely to reject Essence. In this shift, things that you felt “held back from” but wanted as a reality were scrutinized heavily. From what it appears, you all will plunge forward into certain paths, and those things of lesser priority were either be “left behind” altogether, or set aside indefinitely, so as not to use energy, and will be returned to upon a much later date than expected. In other words, if it is something you want, you will now do it with little challenge, even if the path is long. If it is something only seen as fantasy or if energy has never been directed “seriously” toward it, yes, it will most likely be postponed for 10 months to a couple of years, or dropped altogether. If you look at the areas you felt “held back”, you should be able to intuitively sense its tangible reality more than ever, if you are to pursue it. We do not intend for this to be discouraging, unless you choose to use the information in that way, but as a means to understand where focus may be moving, at least for the next 10 months. [bn] Anyone else have a question on energy shifts? [Michael_Entity] If not, we will take questions from the “floor”. [Fg] Our science has long adhered to the “building block” concept of the material world, and to that end has been looking for the ultimate particle which everything is made of. There is another theory out there that says they’ll never find it because motion is the sole constituent of the physical universe. Is that theory valid from Michael’s perspective, because it sure has enormous explanatory power? [Michael_Entity] At this point we would agree there is no foundation to be discovered that is tangible by Physical standards. To describe “motion as the sole constituent of the Physical Universe” is quite accurate since all things spring from the Buddhaic Plane, that of Higher Moving Energy. Incidentally, there are Parallels where this has been satisfied as an area of exploration, but these are Parallels where Mystics, Channels and Psychics are considered the “scientists”. It will most likely take the serious consideration of that culture for this to be satisfied “here” too. You see this beginning in what you call “Quantum Physics”. [bn] Do you see a “Unified Field Theory” being found within the next century? [Michael_Entity] No. There are too many areas that could be considered distractions from this exploration. As the new Century manifests, most will be concerned with the practical application and implementation of the jolting effects of technology and science as seen in the latter 20th Century. Understanding and applying what has come will take precedence over achieving more. We answered, by the way, with what we see as highest probability, but this is not a prediction. Even if a theory were found it would take the entire century to “test” it and investigate it. [M6] could we have an update on the manifestation of the Infinite soul? [Michael_Entity] We do not see full manifestation of the Infinite Soul anywhere on the planet currently, though there are 2 fragments that are “ready”, and 3 more will follow when the first two have begun. At least 5 manifestations will show that we have heard. These manifestations will include a young child apparently. The United States will most likely take the Teachings of either the child, a Priest son of a single parent female Server, or the Teachings of a female Sage. [bn] So the IS intends to manifest in more than one individual at the same time? Has this been done before? [Michael_Entity] We believe Buddha and Christ overlapped in impact, though not so closely. This is part of why you have “east” and “west”. We doubt the latest manifestations will be so easily used to segregate the world. [bn] Is the IS manifesting in 5 individuals due to the population or is this tied more to the lessons to bring? [Michael_Entity] Both. [bn] I recently learned of music being set to the DNA makeup of certain proteins. It seems to make sense “musically”. Can you tell us if there is new knowledge opening up in this area or is this only a curiosity? [Michael_Entity] It is applied “medicinally” on other planets, and in some of your own planet’s parallels, so its potential is more than a novelty. We will conclude here then. Good night

    Ask Michael: January 2015

    Ask Michael – January 4, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley ViP: There seems to be an orderly progression of "body" vs Plane (of existence) in the 3 lower planes: starting with the physical plane (in a physical body, as Personality) to the astral plane (in an astral body, as the Role in Essence), to the causal plane (as a reunited causal body, or Entity.) However, beyond the akashic plane, there are the Mental, Messianic, and Buddhaic planes. And, I don't know whether a reunited Cadre always "starts" on the Mental plane first, and then when its Energy Ring recombines, it does so on the Messianic plane, and so forth for Sphere and the Buddhaic plane, and so forth. How does the progression of reuniting go (from Cadre reuniting into Energy Ring and so forth), how do these correspond to the Mental/Messianic/Buddhaic bodies, and what Planes are they associated with? MEntity: If we are understanding your question correctly: PHYSICAL - Fragment; ASTRAL - Fragments/Entities; CAUSAL - Entities/Cadres; MENTAL - Cadres/Energy Rings; MESSIANIC - Spheres/Arrangements; BUDDHIC - Composition/Design. ViP: OK, thanks - I seem to remember reading though that Infinite Soul manifestations were those of Cadres and could occur from any of the 3 high planes, is that wrong? MEntity: No, that is correct. But keep in mind that the Infinite Soul must "step down" in energy, so it first manifests through one kind of grouping, then another, and so on to the fragment. ViP: OK, thank you. I can follow up more another time. MEntity: For instance, a fragment will channel the Entity of the Cadre of the Energy Ring of the Sphere through which Infinte Soul is manifesting. So it is a process. Brennetta: Hello Michael, I'd like elaboration of the Solar body type in a similar way to Kurtis's earlier question about the Jovial Body Appearance (including male and female celebrity examples of those close to 100%) MEntity: No Body Type is near 100% for anybody, but the Solar Body Type is rarely ever more than 25% of a Body Type. The Solar Body Type adds a kind of fuel, light, and radiance to any other Body Type it is mixed with, and allows for the mix of Body Types outside of linear progression. So a Venus with Solar would tend to be a "brighter" Venus than a Mars without Solar. By "brighter" we mean that there would tend to be more energy, more innocence, more of that radiance that is often quite attractive and magnetic or charismatic. Because of its pivotal nature, Solar allows for such mixes as Lunar/Solar/Saturn, which is usually not possible, since the progression of Body Type mixes are locked into Lunar/Venus/Mercury/Saturn/Martial/Jovial On its own, higher ranges of Solar can only be depicted in fictional portrayals, such body types as that of the fairies, "Tinkerbell," and some elven depictions are higher in Solar than is usually possible. Peter Pan is another example. In "real life" the Solar is often hidden by the other planets in the mix. Even Snow White, who is a fictional portrayal of high Solar has Pluto and Lunar dominant. In "real life" the higher the Solar, the more androgynous the effect. Angelina Jolie has high Solar with Saturn. Rupaul has high Solar with Saturn. In short, the appearance is not always as obvious as the effect. Solar is either quite radiant, or can be quite hyper-charged and abrasive. TyroneT: I'd also like to join in on the body type questions: Can you elaborate on the Saturnian Body Appearance, I'd also like celebrity examples of those close to 100% Saturnian if you could (male and female examples if possible) MEntity: Saturnian Body Types tend to be tall, but not always. However, even when not tall by literal standards, Saturnian Body Types can often SEEM even taller than they are. But their key consistency is in the durability. They can tend to endure extremes of temperature, environment, and threats more than most body types. When literally tall, the Body Type tends to be lean, slow, and deliberate. When figuratively tall, the Body Type tends to fall into the Nature area. In appearance, this Body Type can come across as either daunting or distanced, or come across as guiding and trustful. One of the more famous examples would be Abraham Lincoln, but there is also Angelina Jolie and Rupaul that was just mentioned. In addition to these, there are Yao Ming, Brooke Shields, Taylor Swift, Tilda Swinton, Quentin Tarantino, Uma Thurman,... Janet: Michael, last year at this time you gave us a list of the 7 elements that prompted learning in the year of the Priest, in the form of questions to ask ourselves. Can you provide the 7 elements that prompt our learning in this Scholar year? MEntity: What efforts did you make to validate your theories through experiences? Were you willing to be wrong as a way to learn? Are you telling the truth, or is your reality telling the truth? (if they are in conflict). Are you participating in life, or presuming you are a separate thing from your life? What conditions have you placed on receiving and giving Love in your life? Is your past a "guidepost" or have you turned it into a "hitchpost?" What do you find yourself distracted with in trying to get others to learn (about you, about themselves, about life)? To elaborate upon 3) are you contributing to the creation of your life, or do you feel you are the created result of your life. Is this a range of questions you were seeking? Janet: Yes. Thank you Michael! brian: Asking for Kurtis: Hi Michael, like last time with Jovial, I'd like an elaboration of the Martial Body Type Appearance, with some celebrities(male and female) that might show it off well. :) MEntity: The Martial Body Type in terms of Appearances will almost always have skin pigmentation in the form of freckles or similar. The more a body has freckles, the more it has Martial. The greater the combination that is red hair and light skin, the greater the Martial. Many "albino" individuals have high Martial, while mixed with Neptune or Uranus. Martial pigmentation is not limited to those with lighter skin, of course, but the key is in the differentiation between the base skin color and the pigmentation that are "freckles" or spots. Red undertones to skin color and hair is Martial, with the redder the more Martial. Examples might be Mick Hucknall, Julianne Moore, Olivia Munn, Michael Fassbender, Amy Adams, Robert Redford, Seth Green, Debra Messing, and with Martial Appearance bleeding into Nature there is Russell Crowe. JanaK: Referring to the session on Living as Essence, and more specifically to the Artisan part, how can one more specifically determine if one's life is a true story? I am talking about the part where you said “The Artisan who lives as Essence must then do the sometimes painful task of determining if the life is a true story, or if it is only based on a true story, or if it is a lie, altogether. Is this the story I meant to create? Or am I covering up my true story?" MEntity: The key for the Artisan is in the intention. When there is a disconnect between what is created and what is intended to be created, this can result in lying or delusion. The issue is not in the distance between intent and result, but in how that distance is handled. The Artisan Essence who is not lying will own the distance and do the work to close that distance, if possible. If the distance between intent and result is not possible to close, then that is owned, as well, and there is no lying about this. For example, it may have been intended to create a life as a pop star singer and this never came to pass. To the Artisan Essence, that is okay. It is not failure, and there is no reason to lie about it. Lying might show up in blaming the life, blaming others, faulting a lack of skills, etc. but owning it means that it simply was not created. It might still be possible, but the distance between intent and result is allowed to be true. JanaK: kind of taking responsibility for it then? MEntity: For the Artisan living a "true story," it means that not all intentions will have come to pass, but that this distance is allowed. Allowing that distance is not the same thing as conceding or resigning. The further the life is from what one intended, the more easily it can come to be in denial or delusion. However, the more that the distancing between intent and result is allowed and honored, the more focus the creative resources tend to be on closing that distance. When that distance is denied, creative resources are used to ignore that distance. When an Artisan is awake, these questions and considerations tend to be enough. For the Artisan that is asleep, no amount of questioning can tend to break through. It usually takes a turning point, intervention, or a complete crash. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
  25. Michael Speaks 051510 Open Floor [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin the queue now. [QUESTION] Hello Michael, my question is regarding Cadence mates. Could you please elaborate on that connection... How do they function with each other? How do they work together to accomplish their global job? [MEntity] We would first point out that our term "Cadence" refers to any group of 7 with a relative resonance, which means that a Cadre is a Cadence of Entities, for instance. We point this out because we know that many students use the term to refer to the smallest grouping of 7 fragments of a single Role as cast within an Entity. There are many variations on "Cadence" across a Cadre and within an Entity. We point this out not only for clarity, but to say that our response would apply to all Cadences. We use the term "Cadence" to reference not only the rhythmic flow/count of fragmentation from Tao in 7/8 time, but as a musical reference to the culmination and "conclusion" of that flow into what are Cadres. We will also clarify that while we are aware of the terminology, we are not familiar with what is designated as "global jobs" beyond what might be a part of a Configuration of Agreements across a Cadence, which might be global in scope; otherwise, there are no inherent "global jobs." The relationship among Cadence members would be akin to positively-romanticized sibling relationships. Although the entire spectrum of human relationships can be had between Cadence Members, there does tend to be a kinship that is "softer" even in the worst of circumstances, relatively speaking. Those cast in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Positions tend to gravitate toward each other, as do 2nd, 4th, and 6th positions. The 7th position tends to be in a more "aloof" position, so to speak, and often becomes a focal point for other members of the Cadence. For instance, it is not uncommon for the Entities 1 through 6 to generate Personalities who feel they are "in love with" 7th Entity members and the various Personalities that are generated by the Essences of that Entity across lifetimes. The same can be said of a Cadence of Roles within an Entity. This dynamic of focus and support might best be understood if one were to visualize a pyramid with the 7th Position being at the "top" so that all of the energy and focus, gravitationally-speaking, is distributed among the other Positions for that 7th Position. This is not a literal description, but one that helps you to see that inherent dynamic of that Configuration. [QUESTION] Would it be appropriate to say that each of the 7 positions, in conjunction with each other, allow for a more complete understanding and exploration of the various lenses that a Role in essence can perceive, itself? [MEntity] We would agree. We would also agree to that description on the larger scales, as well. For instance, a Cadence of Entities (Cadre) in the Love (first) Position of its Energy Ring (12 Cadres) would collectively bring perspective, experience, and comprehension to that subject for the Energy Ring. [QUESTION] is there a more specific name to indicate we're talking about the smallest group? [MEntity] The Cadence of Roles (which could be called a scale of Notes) would collectively contribute to the whole of that Role's experience, perception, and comprehension within the context of its Greater Cadence (group of 49; 7X7). Greater Cadence might also be called a Chord. Cadence members spend more lifetimes together than any other grouping, and that number of lifetimes is greater on the smallest scale of a Cadence than on the greater scale of Cadence. For example, the Cadence of Roles in an Entity spend the most lives together, and then the Cadence of Raw Numbers. The Cadence of Raw Numbers could be called Octaves that include the Traveling Companions and Essence Twin. All of the Cadence variations could be considered as various "Melodies" within a Cadre. [QUESTION] what is the difference between the cadence of roles and the one of raw numbers? I thought that was one and the same? what is the distinction? [MEntity] A Cadence of Roles would be akin to the Notes on a scale from C to A, whereas a Cadence of Raw Number are like the 7 C Notes in 7 Octaves, or the 7 D Notes, etc. [QUESTION] does that make an entity or cadre a Song? [MEntity] A Cadre could be considered a Song. On the scale that becomes the Design or the Harmonies, the "words" that would be required by definition for a Song are no longer as relevant. On the larger scale, we would describe the grouping in terms of orchestral terms. [QUESTION] I'm going to get less esoteric for a bit. it strikes me that the US is more divided politically/emotionally than I have seen in my lifetime (even the 60's). There seems to be very little being done about real problems. How much does this really matter to individual personalities? What is a helpful point of view on this? [MEntity] The clearest metaphor we can find for describing where your country (and world) is currently would be at the crest atop the first hill of a roller coaster. "Half" of the people would be feeling the momentum forward, while "half" would still be hanging behind the hill, feeling the pull, but not seeing where it is going. The "half" in the front have a clarity that those "in the back" would not have, despite the fact that "everyone" knows they are on a roller coaster. Those "in the back" would have a bit more anxiety and resistance, in real world terms, as the gravity of evolution pulls them forward. We remind you that this "pull" and evolution are not imposed, as it is a choice to get on the "roller coaster" in the first place. We would also add that many "in the front" of the evolution are "egging on" those "in the back" to some degree for fun. "WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!" is similar to what even some "in the front" are calling out, but on higher levels of perception, we see this as the "brattier" of the Essences who get a kick out of generating drama for the younger souls. Many of the same fragments acting as alarmists fully "know better," but enjoy the drama and humor. It is easier to enjoy such things when there is a higher perception of events and probabilities. In the same way that many Essences will "pull up their lawn chairs" around the section of the Astral Plane allotted to "hell" just for the amusement of watching the younger souls who think they must burn in "hell," so do some fragments carry over that sense of humor into the Physical Plane to play on the younger souls' fears of evolution. The division you sense is valid, but temporary. Now that the Infinite Soul manifestation is less-likely to intervene, the more "obnoxious" of fragments on both ends of the spectrum of evolution will be more obvious, and this "obnoxiousness" does not preclude the possibility of being harmful. [QUESTION] What is "temporary" in this context? [MEntity] For the most part, we see the majority of probabilities "teetering" toward various angles of dramatic destruction, but no fragments are truly interested in going there. Once the planet has moved into a Mature Soul gravity of evolution, even the Infant and Baby among the population begin a sensitivity that recognizes PAIN as a common denominator among everyone. One of the first steps toward unity is the capacity to recognize suffering in another, and even the Oldest of Souls had trouble doing so before the shift into a Mature Soul Paradigm. Once that gravity begins, then compassion becomes a priority over competition (Young vs Mature). [QUESTION] Do you have any ballpark time-frame when things will start to calm down? [MEntity] Those who might still want to harm others as a means to alter or resist evolution may do so, but we have not found any probability where this happens on any scale that has impact. Most Baby and Young Souls are "more bark than bite" in general at this time, but this does not mean there will not be those who represent the extremes. In most probabilities relative to where and when you are asking this question, the full forward momentum that then takes everyone with it onto an evolutionary roll, so to speak, is in approximately 2 years. [QUESTION] It is well known that events on the Physical Plane are linear in time, yet it has been mentioned several times that events on the Astral Planes and above are non-linear, as well as a future on this physical plane parallel in which technology may allow there to be instances of non-linear time. Could you please explain in further detail this concept of non-linear time, and how it works around the concepts we know of as special and general relativity, particularly temporal causality? [MEntity] The concept of non-linear time is best understood in vertical terms rather than horizontal terms, if you will. Linear progression happens "all the way" up and returning to Tao. Linearity is not lost, it is simply not the only perspective. The past is still the past, and the future is still the future, and the present is still the present. However, to help one imagine the concept that is often referred to as non-linear time, we would refer to the imagery of a 365 Day Wall Calendar. Within the Physical Plane, "you" exist within one of the boxes representing the Day. You progress from box to box, day to day, and there is very limited perception of the entirety of the year in front or in back of your point of reference. [QUESTION] so would it be correct to say that as you move up vertically, you see more and more on how actions in the present affect the future, but future events cannot affect the past, so to speak? [MEntity] From the Astral Plane, time is still quite linear in experience, except that it could be said that you have the equivalent of a clear view of the Month, rather than the limitation of the Day. From the Causal Plane, the view is more like being able to see the entirety of the wall calendar for the Year. [QUESTION] so you observe the events simultaneously, rather than individually? [MEntity] Yes, the comprehension, experience, and perception of events is not linear, even though the progression of events are. This is why we use the differentiation between horizontal and vertical: it is merely a matter of perspective that allows for the experience of non-linear aspects. [QUESTION] Wouldn't that interfere with choice though, if an action is seen to create an undesired outcome? [MEntity] No, it would not interfere with choice, but enhance it. Even within your single box, or your single day, you learn from experience how to anticipate the outcome of a choice before it is acted upon. Your capacity to anticipate within a day could be likened to our capacity to see probabilities on the metaphorical scale of the year. To be clearer in our response, we would have to include one more dimension of consideration with our visual. In "reality" there is never one calendar on that wall, but a multitude of calendars superimposed one over the other, over the other. The progression that one makes throughout the "year" would "weave" among those calendar layers, if you will. Each calendar layer representing a probability from the moment. Your choices determine what layer of calendar you are living. For instance, your choice to lash out in defense against an offense vs generating a creative, peaceful solution might be the difference between one layer and another layer of the year's calendar day. [QUESTION] Is this how parallels are constantly splitting off, based on the infinite number of choices that can be made? [MEntity] Yes. Our analogy of the Calendar Layers would be the equivalent of Parallels, or Dimensions. This is why when one might ask about a past life at one point in the current life, there may be a list of pasts that are linearly linked to the current life's moment, but at another point in the life, that moment may have a very different set of linear links to the past, because it is resonant to a different layer of the calendar now. [QUESTION] Though we do not see it on the physical plane, is it possible for us to jump around on different levels based on our choices, or new choices, or are we "stuck" on the same calendar? [MEntity] Shifting Parallels (calendars) happens on a regular basis, and happens on different scales from the Personal to the Global. Personal shifts in parallels can be generated through the accumulation of DECISIONS that then lead to pivotal CHOICES. We differentiate Decision from Choice. A Decision could be akin to HOW one takes the next step, and CHOICE is WHERE one takes the next step. Most Decisions create a path, and that path leads to a Choice. And that Choice can lead to generating a new parallel, or merging with another parallel. We will conclude this response with the clarification that the concept that "everything happens at once" should not be taken as a literal concept, but rather as a description of the capacity to comprehend on larger scales. For instance, when we said that all Roles within an Entity are "cast at once," we did not mean this literaly, but more in the same way that one might say that in the course of a day of baking, the chocolate chip cookies were all baked at once, and the ginger snaps were baked at once, etc. Even on the scale of Tao there is order, and that order has a progression, regardless of how massive the scale of comprehension. Time is simply a means for creating "space" within denser dimensions to allow for comprehension of progression. [QUESTION] You said cadence members spend the most lifetimes together. Is there an average number or percentage range of lifetimes that you spend with your primary cadence and raw # cadence mates? I’ve only asked for shared lifetime counts on a few people, trying to get a sense of how all that fits into things. [MEntity] We would say that Cadence Members spend more than 70% of lifetimes together in some meaningful capacity, in general. That 70% would include those lifetimes where at least one of the fragments is incarnated, but another is acting as non-physical guide or support. [QUESTION] At one of these open forums a while back Michaels mentioned that no one in attendance then had much support in their lives. What exactly is this phenomenon; support that is? What does it look like? Where are we placed with it and without it and what's it mean i.e., its significance? [MEntity] Every fragment has support in its life or it would die, but many do not consciously recognize the support, or do not consciously allow the support. Support could be said to be the network of life forces that are required for any Sentient to manifest in form. Support is active on the smallest of scales, such as within an individual lifetime, but are also vital on larger scales, as in terms of Universes; Universes are organized in groups of 12, and each plays a position of support for the others. The support of which we speak at the moment is the support that exists, with or without your Personality's permission or acceptance. It is dynamic and energetic, yet tangible. For instance, someone had to raise you. Someone had to heal you at certain points. Someone had to teach you. Someone has inspired you. Someone has fed you. The amount of support one has within the life is phenomenal when truly comprehended in terms of what it has contributed to your being here, now. The degree to which one allows, seeks, or invites support is often proportional to the degree of awareness and consciousness. Support occurs on an Intimate Level, Inspirational Level, Comrade or Classmates Level, and a Guiding or Guides Level. We have elaborated upon this in other exchanges regarding the subject of the Support Circle of 12 for every fragment. We will ask Troy to include that article in the final transcript for your further study and application. Note: See Support Circle of 12. A search for 'support circle' is advised as well, since there have been multiple transcripts that reference the concept. [QUESTION] I've just started recognizing the differences in intensity and extremes between different soul ages and different internal monadal experiences as an effect on how Chief Features display. Is this true for all of the various overleaves -- i.e., even frequencies and energies? As a general rule, is the slide between negative and positive poles less dramatic with age and experience? [MEntity] Your observation is valid. What you describe is the spectrum of perspectives, experiences, and comprehensions that range between the poles. As the soul grows older, it moves from a more reactionary bounce between the poles, into a response-oriented pendulum swing between the poles, and then into what might be best visualized as an arc between the poles. This arcing is what could be said to be the "Third Perspective." The older soul still has access to the range between the poles, but from a third perspective, or a perspective that is more "outside" of the self, from a higher elevation, an arc. This allows for a non-attachment to the experiences, comprehensions, and perspectives, while still participating in them. The evolution through the use of the spectrum between the poles of overleaves then could be described as a progression from attachment to detachment to non-attachment, or reactionary to responsive to True Choice, or from bouncing to swinging to arcing. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
