  1. [Extracted from Michael Speaks: On Healing & Healers] Diane_H: Can you explain the difference between Intellectual and Emotional healing? Are they often intertwined? MEntity: Intellectual Healing would require the Order returned to the Intellect, or the Intellectual Center to return to the Positive Pole of INSIGHT. This is usually a matter of returning the fragment to a state of honesty about his or her life in a way that brings that Insight, instead of a chronic state of REASON. A chronic state of Reason will bring the Intellect into a constant state of overdrive, looking for patterns that are not there, or creating patterns that are not valid, forcing justifications, reasons, explanations for that which is not understood. This, then, can affect the Emotional Center in a way that pulls the Emotions into a chronic state of Negative Pole, which is Sentimentality. Sentimentality is the confusion and blurring between Symbols and Meanings, and when Symbols and Meanings become confused, Beliefs are generated. And so the Intellect that forced a false pattern then begins to believe it in the Emotions. A simplistic example would be in one who might Think that someone's intentions were to hurt her, and so begins to believe that this person did hurt her, because she can feel that hurt. But the truth will have been that she forced an explanation or a reason for someone else's choices that she did not like, and then the person who symbolized "Love" for her is gone, so that means "love" is also gone, and now she has become Intellectually and Emotionally wounded. To bring Healing to her Emotionally, she will have to regain the Order that allows for a person to symbolize Love, but does not confuse the conduit of Love for Love, itself. Diane_H: So it could be said that Intellectual wounding comes from one's interpretation of symbols, and Emotional wounding is the emotion that results from it? MEntity: If the Healing is not addressed Intellectually or Emotionally, it can then move into Physicality, and she will either open up to, or create a path to, Homicide, Suicide, Accident, or Natural methods of implementing one of the 7 Woundings. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation. Yes, Diane, that could be one way of describing a pattern, though we might clarify the statement to read: Intellectual Wounding can come from False or Forced Interpretation, and Emotional Wounding is the Belief/Feelings that support in that Falsehood or Forced Interpretation.
  2. [Excerpt from OMW: You and Your Centers] MEntity: The INTELLECTUAL CENTER, then, has as its Basic Functions the regulation of your impact, effect, and presence on your path in this life. In its simplest description for this exchange, we can say that it is how one navigates between HONESTY/Innocence and DECEIT/Jaded. This is everyone's way of testing out behaviors, traits, and negotiation in terms of their effects, impact, and presence in form. It is directly linked to the ATTITUDE. No matter what your Attitude, in terms of Axis, it is your INTELLECTUAL CENTER that runs the core of your basic philosophy about this life. One cannot test out one's philosophy without experimenting in the range between Honesty and Deceit, both in terms of others and the self. The Attitude cannot function in any healthy way without this Center moving more and more toward Honesty. The more one limits his or her sense of Expression, which can show up as false personas, lying to oneself, lying to others, not questioning inherited philosophies, avoiding contact, evading society, etc. the more one falls into Deceit. Or Jaded. In Positive Health, this Center could be described as ENCOURAGED. In Negative Health, it can show up as DISMISSIVE. The means by which the Attitude is held in the Positive Pole is at its best when one is Encouraged, or Encouraging. The most direct way of healing this Center is through QUESTIONING. By this we mean that one does not operate from a higher proportion of presumptions and prejudices than one does from curiosity and inquisitiveness. So the question here, for your assessment of health of the Intellect, is in how often you feel discouraged, jaded, avoiding of contact vs curious, inquisitive, and having an impact. How often do you turn to your sense of encouragement over your sense of dismissiveness?

    Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: Freedom from Life Traps] MEntity: First we will point out that your primary centering is how you take in life. The part of your centering is how you put it back out there, and the tertiary centering is how you bring balance to those two — the center and the part — or break the pattern that has become a trap. A very simplistic example would be someone who is Emotionally Centered navigating life through feelings, and directions that pull them towards inspiration, often using perception as the means for navigating the life. Because the emotions do not require logic, they simply require a developing internal trust of Perception, which is the positive pole of the emotional centering. And so this individual would navigate life based on feelings. If it feels right, that person would go in that direction; if it feels wrong, that person may question. And if they are Emotionally Centered with an Intellectual Part, this means that this person would navigate life based on their feelings and then express those feelings because of the Intellectual Part. So this individual would like to talk about these feelings, and find a way to share those feelings and basically create a construct for those feelings. Often using the positive pole of the Intellectual Centering would develop insights based on those feelings, because the positive pole of the Intellectual Center is Insight. And so they are able to make sense of their feelings and then possibly do something with that, by pulling in the Moving Center. ... Going back to our example of an Emotionally Centered personality, this individual is going to navigate life through feelings. So this person will feel and then think with the Intellectual Part. So as trauma happens and wounding occurs, it happens first to the emotions and then it has to go through the thinking process or through the thoughts, through the intellect. If insight is not accomplished, then it falls into the negative pole of Reasoning. The experience will often cycle back through the emotions generating new feelings in response to the thoughts that just occurred, which then must pass back through the thought process, and what happens in that case, is a vortex is created, or a loop is created, that we call a trap. Those experiences that you take on as wounding take on in a cumulative effect that becomes what we will describe as your life traps. To differentiate from the centering traps, we'll call it the Life Trap. This person will keep trying to solve the situation by feeling it out, thinking it through, feeling it out, thinking it through, feeling it out, thinking it through, and so on, until it becomes a weight much like the process of generating a pearl within a clam, except this is not as beautiful to each of you. Understanding the origins of what is causing the effects of the Life Trap is not as necessary as what you do in response to that now. In other words it is not necessary to go back and work through or understand or feel out or correct anything obvious or tangible at this point, at the first step. The first would be to free yourself from the effects of that Life Trap. That would be the first step. Often it is the only step necessary because once you have freed yourself from being locked into that Life Trap, it often loses all significance whatsoever, consciously or subconsciously. The way to free yourself from that is to break the pattern that you are using in dealing with it. So the person who has a Life Trap that has been developed from trying to deal with wounding by having feelings about it, trying to make sense of it, which causes more feelings which causes more confusion and so forth, this individual would want to emphasize tremendously the Moving Center, which has been left out of the process. Those of you who are Intellectually Centered Emotional Part, or Emotionally Centered Intellectual Part, probably can attest to the fact that there is very little action that you take to break the cycle of your emotions and your thoughts in regards to what you feel is holding back your life. ... We realize that this sounds quite simplistic, to say that whatever centering of the three lower centers is neglected is the solution, but it truly is that simple. For an individual whose life feels as if it is blocked who is Emotionally Centered Intellectual Part, more action is necessary in that life to break that cycle and to free that individual from the effects of the Life Trap. Nothing else is required.
  4. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: September 2008] QUESTION: You have told earlier about suitable ways to meditate for people with emotional/intellectual and intellectual/moving centering. What about the rest: intellectual/emotional, emotional/moving, moving/intellectual and moving/emotional? MEntity: In nearly all cases for effective meditation, it is not so much about the Primary Center/Part, but about the Centering that is most often neglected. So an Emotionally-Centered/Intellectual Part, and an Intellectually-Centered/Emotional Part could both do well with a MOVING-CENTERED Meditation. Whatever your Centering/Part, you might find the most effective meditations to be in the realm of that third Center of Gravity that is not usually accessed. Moving-Centered Meditations can include anything that involves the Body, from taking a simple walk, to Tai Chi and Yoga to dancing the night away. Intellectually-Centered Meditations can include anything from crossword puzzles and brain teasers to such focused meditations as Transcendental Meditation, to good night of hilarity and comedy. Emotionally-Centered Meditations can include anything from a good listen to music that resonates with you, to cathartic expressions such as can be found in Primal Therapies, to night of tears and intensity at the movies. So a Moving Centered/Emotional Part or Emotional Centered/Moving Part can both do well to get out out the crosswords, brain teasers, or make their way to the nearest comedy venue. The point of meditation, in general, is to bring about a full functioning of all of the lower Centers, so it will always be most effective to focus first on that Centering that is most neglected. However, if one wants to just feel good and bring some awareness to one's natural, habitual processes, one can focus on a meditation that is resonant to the Primary Centering. Rather than compile a list of meditations for each Centering, each of you can consider this fairly accurately on your own: if it tends to emphasize the Body, it can be used as a Moving-Centered meditation. If it tends to draw up and emphasize the Emotions or feelings, it can be used as an Emotionally-Centered meditation. If it tends to bring about emphasis on the Intellect or thinking, it can be used as an Intellectually-Centered meditation. The difference between an experience being just another experience and its being a meditation is AWARENESS. When you are dancing, listening, or laughing, for example, bringing your awareness to the moment can instantly turn it into a kind of meditation.
  5. [Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2008] MEntity: By "meditate," we describe a triad of effort that starts with Examination, moves into Implementation, and then into Realization. For July, it would do our students well to examine which of the primary centers (Moving, Emotional, or Intellectual) is least-used or most out of balance, (this should be rather obvious to most of you) and then implement a behavior that brings about that Centering into your life. If you lack balance of Movement, then for a part of your week, your day, emphasize Movement: take a walk longer than you normally would; literally exercise; dance; stretch; do Yoga, etc. If you lack Emotional balance, then expose yourself to elements that provoke or soothe your emotions, such as listening to music (actually listening to it, not just having it as background); experiencing a live concert or performance; watching the sky, sunset, clouds; sitting with nature; etc. If you lack balance of Intellect, then for part of your week or your day, implement Intellectual experiences such as crossword puzzles, brain teasers; singing; shouting out randomly in nonsensical sounds to provoke laughter; telling the truth to a friend or self; writing a list of gratitude; sitting still; etc. On the other side of these experiences one would find the Realizations that come as part of Meditation.

    Intellectual Center of Gravity

    [Excerpt from NWM: Your Center of Gravity. The entire transcript is recommended for an understanding of Centers.] MEntity: One of the reasons we use the term "Center" is that it is short for "Center of Gravity." Center of Gravity describes an average location of the "weight" of an object, by which that object can then be understood in terms of its motion through space and time, as well as an even deeper understanding through how that object is bound in rotation around that Center of Gravity. The "object" here is most often understood as the self, but can extend to refer to events, relationships, time periods, etc. There is a "natural" or starting point Center of Gravity for each "Center," but these change over the lifetime. ... Your Intellectual Center of Gravity is in the throat, the Vishuddhi, or the Throat Chakra. ... An Intellectually-CENTERED person tends to rotate/process within the self in terms of how things are expressed, make sense, are logical, formed, and bring them insight.
  7. [Introductory lecture from MMW: The Health of Your Intellectual Center] MEntity: Today we will look at the Intellectual Center and its function, nature, and health. The Polarities of this Center have the Positive Pole as Insight and the Negative Pole as Reason. INSIGHT is the capacity to reason, but with intuition. You may have noticed that the Positive Poles of the Centers are "positive" because they are no longer working alone. INSIGHT is when you can combine the intellect with the input of emotion in a useful way that transcends Reason. REASON is purely intellectual and cannot understand anything beyond what it already knows or finds true. INSIGHT recognizes that there is more to know than what one knows. Both of these polarities create a range of Self-Expression that is all about how one gives form to one's truths. So the health of one's Intellectual Center is often tied to one's relationship with Truth. Insight allows and invites the Truth, while Reasoning decides and defends the "truth." In many cases, Reasoning looks like "excuses." In many cases Reasoning tells you why you cannot do something, and Insight helps you figure out how. The Intellectual Center is a direct reflection of the health of your Self-Expression, your state of personal truths, and your degree of authenticity and sincerity. One of the easiest ways to determine the health of your Intellectual Center is in how you talk to yourself. The more constructive your inner voice, the more likely you are aligned with True Personality, the Positive Poles, and Essence. The more destructive, undermining, insulting, berating, guilty, sabotaging, defeated the voice, the further from healthy this Center is likely to be. This is not the same thing as saying "stay positive" or "do not think negatively." "Staying positive" is not the same thing as being constructive; in fact, "staying positive" can often have destructive effects. "Thinking negatively" can most certainly be constructive when it helps one to differentiate between possibilities, ideas, potential, facts, truths, etc. So it is much more helpful to use the range between Constructive and Destructive when determining if one is "positive" or "negative." The more destructive your inner voice, the more you have rejected your own Insight. The more destructive your inner voice, the more you rely on Reason. The healing that can come from knowing this differentiation is that you can now CHOOSE. The destructive voices were never your own. These were truths handed to you or seeded in you by others and you are nurturing someone else's fears, worries, and reasons at the expense of knowing your own truths, your own honesty, your own authenticity. When you navigate your life using the truths of others that are destructive to you, then you will find that you bump up against more challenges and apparent threats that you then feel necessary to defend. The Intellect is how you SEE, how you interpret the world, how you interpret everything. It hosts your Philosophy for life, and this is why the Intellect is tied to the Attitudes. And because your sense of safety and confidence is tied directly to how you see the world and see yourself, the Intellect and Attitudes are directly linked to the Chief Features. So, in effect, your Chief Features do the work of defending truths that are not your own, defending lies. Because the Chief Features' "job" is only to defend and protect, it does not do the work of looking beyond the threats that you see. They cannot know any differently until you do. This is why we speak highly of focusing on the healing of the Attitude as priority when one is ruled by Chief Features. And understanding the Intellect can help with this because Insight looks for the truth, while Reason hides from it. When you begin to look at any wounding and healing regarding the Intellect, you will likely be dealing only with Personal Truths which are relative, subjective, and subject to change. If your Chief Features are active, your Attitude and Intellect in the Negative Pole, you are essentially missing or rejecting more information and insight that would help return you to your own Personal Truths.
  8. [Excerpt from a private session on June 16, 2016] MEntity: As for your "thinking too much," there is truth to this, but only as part of a Trap that you find yourself in between the Intellect and Emotion. You overthink your feelings. This is because you long to be more Emotionally-Centered, Intellectual Part. What happens in Intellectual Centering, Emotional Part is that thoughts build and grow and take up a great amount of "room" in the mind, and the Emotional Part is mute. There is no outward expression of your thoughts, no form to put them into, so they show up as "feelings," as agitations in the body, and "boomeranged" back into the Intellect to be organized and sorted and tamed. Centering and Part are not static, so this only describes the habit that you have developed. To change this is only a matter of changing your habits. When the Intellectual/Emotional is in cycle of a Trap, it tends to be that the Personality is stuck in a cycle of listening to others and listening to a cacophony of inner thoughts that then generate feelings that then must be tamed and sorted and managed, which then brings up more feelings, etc. This leads to a numbness after some time. Or to great outbursts that are senseless because the Emotional Part has no voice, and the Moving gets called in as the outlet, which often does not go well. A personality tends to choose one or the other as their method of managing the Trap. Either the outbursts or the numbness. So what you can do to bring this back into balance is to proactively activate all three Centers at once in a way that allows for you to be familiar with them as a team, so to speak. To activate all three at once, a common and easy method is to take a walk while listening to music. The Intellect will be present by default, and the music would activate the Emotions, and your body is included because it is Moving. Experiencing this in a way that is playful but aware can help you to catch those moments when you feel a confidence to move in harmony to the music/emotions, and to sing out loud in confidence, even if quietly. All of this gives you practice in the experience of giving form to feelings, voice to movement, soothing of intellect.
  9. From a Personal Open Floor session - Jan. 18, 2012 [EricM]: This may be a broad question, but any insight would be cool [EricM]: I’ve been curious about the connections between human consciousness (or its shifts and patterns) and weather systems/the environment. On TLE, there have been some channeling tidbits that suggest some kind of connection or interaction. For example, one energy report said, “In a Higher Centered year, or a Moving Centered year, there tends to be greater emphasis on the Physical Plane patterns of weather as reflective of the collective consciousness.” [EricM]: There’s also the idea of various kinds of consciousness (such as those of devas, planets, etc). Can you elaborate on consciousness as related to earth’s weather/environmental systems and how human sentience interacts with it/influences it? [MEntity]: As Sentience evolves with a planet over time, the various elements of an environment, weather systems, ecosystems, etc begin to take a part in being a language for the subconscious of that Sentience. [MEntity]: This is made more significant by the effects those elements have on the bodies. [MEntity]: This is really no different from how every individual fragment processes his or her own thoughts, feelings, and actions as they play out through the "weather" of the individual body. [MEntity]: Whereas the health of an individual body could be said to be the "weather" of an individual, the actual weather of a geographical region could be said to be the health of that collective consciousness. [MEntity]: People choose, or gravitate toward, or "end up" in regions where the weather and climate most accurately reflect the processes that are important for that individual at the time, or for the lifetime. [MEntity]: In the same way that the individual body is the densest reflection of less-dense processes, so is the weather the densest reflection of the less-dense collective processes. [EricM]: Is this something that reflection can be interpreted? For example, "the drought here in Texas is possibly symptomatic of X" [MEntity]: Yes. We will get to that in a moment. [EricM]: lol k :) [MEntity]: Because weather and health are the densest levels of processing, they are also "slower" in acting as reflections of inner processes. [MEntity]: So, for instance, one's "cold" is indicative of processes that may no longer be obviously-relevant to the conscious mind, as the events have passed, but the processes continue. [MEntity]: And so the weather for a region may be reflective of past processes of that population. [MEntity]: That "delay" in reflection is different for different regions and peoples. [MEntity]: On an individual basis, this is often linked to Frequency. [MEntity]: On a collective basis, this is often linked to whatever has become the most-dominant common denominator among those people, such as Soul Age, Frequency, Body Types, Chief Features, etc. [MEntity]: As mentioned before, the symbolic language of climate and weather does have meaning that can be interpreted to some extent. [MEntity]: To start with your example, Eric, we can say that any weather or climate that is dry tends to be linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: When that dryness moves into extremes of drought, it is often indicative of Intellectual processes that have lost all capacity to bear fruit, bring a harvest, etc. This may seem too literal, but that is the simplicity of symbolism. [MEntity]: When fire then comes into play, it is now a matter of Defensiveness that has become consuming of the Intellect. [EricM]: interesting [Martha]: Eric, I think Michael has nailed our region [EricM]: no kidding [MEntity]: Wind is also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: And in some areas, such as "tornado alley," this is where the Intellect is reflected as being the most confused. [MEntity]: Cold climates are also linked to the Intellect. [MEntity]: Water is linked to the Emotions, of course. [MEntity]: So areas that are prone to flooding are often areas where those fragments are working out their overflowing, or powerful emotional processes. [MEntity]: Something like a hurricane, then, is often generated among those who are processing the powerful combinations of Intellect and Emotions. [MEntity]: We will point out here that it is not that a region "creates" or "chooses" a hurricane, for example, but that collective processes of emotions and intellect may tend to generate these as byproducts. [EricM]: as one does not necessarily choose an illness, but it gets generated by choices made [MEntity]: In areas where there is little change in weather, or no distinct shift in Seasons, it can often be an area where people have chosen to emphasize exploration and processing of whatever that particular region is emphasizing symbolically. [MEntity]: What we would have to do is dedicate an entire session to this topic, and map out the various symbolic reflections of environment and weather, and describe some regional details as examples. [EricM]: that would be fine, it's just good to have a few points to start with
