  1. NWM - Feb 20, 2016 - Accepting Death Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. Today we are asked to speak on the acceptance of death. We will speak to this from both the approach toward your own death and the deaths of others. For most, the experience of death is associated with loss. There is validity to this, but today we will point to some greater truths about death that allow loss to be a PART of death, and not the definition of death. Before we begin, we would pose a question to each of you. With as much honesty and as much stripping of romantic notions as possible, would you consider yourself afraid of, confused by, unaffected by, welcoming, or curious about death? (choose one closest to your usual feelings/thoughts about it) Janet: Curious Bobby: Same, curious PeterK: Confused DianeHB: Curious and a little afraid Maureen: Curious and Afraid (of others dying - not me). Colleen: Sometimes afraid of it such as worried about waking up in my coffin. Maureen: If that is a question ...cremation is the answer. :) Colleen: No, I don't want to be burned up. Maureen: I'm changing my answer to welcoming rather than curious. That was not a test question, but a prompt for a baseline in exploring with us. What we will do is speak to the acceptance of your own death, first, and then the acceptance of death of others can be extrapolated from there. First: you will die. Death is a universal experience, a universal Truth. It is universal in the sense that Death = Transformation, and transformation is a result of evolution, and evolution is a momentum throughout the entire universe and beyond. Death can come in many forms across the universe, but death cannot be escaped. Death exists as a part of the dynamic of the universe and beyond, so that even universes "die." From the perspective of Personality, this can look like loss and "the end." That is because the Body is designed to avoid death. It is designed to extend the experience of living in a body for as long as it can. It is an unconscious design because it is anatomic, or put another way, it is an inherent choice that need not be made on a daily basis because the fact of having a body means that you already chose to be alive. Once the choice is made to incarnate, the choice is made to live in a body. This need not be a conscious choice made every single day or moment, so the body takes on the task to navigate toward life and away from death. This is the negative pole of the Instinctive Center, and a part of all living beings in physical form. This is the most-basic of choices made by all creatures. Most creatures are driven instinctively, or anatomically. The positive pole of the Instinctive Center is Atomic. This is when you learn to make choices that can go beyond programming and "instinct." This is why humans can commit suicide or willingly make choices that override the instinct that would normally keep the body alive. This is not to say that all suicides are conscious choices, but that many are. Whether suicide is a choice or a result of other factors, it is always a matter of overriding the instinct to live. Our point being that death is seen as the opposite of life because of this anatomic dynamic. Death must be understood as the opposite of life until the true nature of life and the universe is understood. If death is ignored and approached with no concern, the quality of life can diminish greatly. This has happened in various cycles of history on Earth. From genocides to witch hunts to manufactured poverty to war, etc. When death is ignored or regarded without concern, it is used as a means of destruction or self-destruction. This is why most fear death, are confused by it, or apathetic to it. If this anatomic sensitivity to death is ignored before there is an understanding of the true nature of life and the universe, the results can be worse than death, itself. We share this with you to help you understand that you fear death, are confused by it, or unaffected by it because you live in a world that has not yet comprehended the true nature of life and the universe. Even as Old Souls, you may have a great sense of the true nature of life and the universe, but when submerged in a world that does not comprehend this, you are bombarded by imprinting that confuses you and has a long way to go toward that understanding. This does not undo your understanding as Essence, but it undoes your understanding as Personality. As an Old Soul you are born with this understanding, but your Personality is inculcated back toward the dependence upon anatomic navigation. You are taught quickly to mourn death, to be sorry for it, to reach out in sympathy and your experiences of death are quickly shown to be painful and deeply horrifying. It is easy to quickly take this stance as your own and remain with it. Even as you Manifest Essence, this is such a deep and instinctive dependency that even the wisest of souls with the greatest number of deaths under her belt can still find death perplexing and upsetting. So today we speak directly to the forgotten core of you who truly comprehends the nature of life and the universe. Maureen: That is making me cry. Understanding the nature of life and the universe does not mean that you will override your efforts to stay alive, but to include that effort as a CHOICE, not a reaction or fearful response to threat. When you function from the positive pole of your Instinctive Center you do not ignore the negative pole, you simply repurpose it. When in the Positive Pole, overriding your Instinct to live simply means that you not only trust your body to navigate away from threat, but that you choose to live. And choosing to live is one of the greatest paths toward accepting death. This may seem ironic, but not when you understand the nature of life and the universe. To clarify what we mean by the "nature of life and the universe:" The nature of life and the universe is change, evolution, transformation. Everything you do aims for these things. Everything. Even your resistance to these. Nothing in existence truly avoids change, evolution, and transformation. Nothing. This means that to understand this means to understand the necessity of death as a version of these very aims. Some say that you begin dying as soon as you are born. This is true, but not in the sense that the life is then rendered meaningless. Quite the opposite. If you exchange the term "dying" with "evolving" you can see why your life is immediately aiming for death upon birth. Understanding the nature of life and the universe is to put death into the same category as a beautiful sunset, a blooming flower, a cocoon-to-butterfly, a great night of sleep, a profound trust in existence. However horrific and painful the death, we are speaking of the death, itself. The path toward death is a separate discussion. Every life has its sunset. Every life blooms and then drops its petals. Cocoons into release and transformation. Requires a great rest/review. It is fair to grieve your lack of access to the Person and Personality who you loved in your life. This is natural. This is separate from understanding and accepting death. If you have experienced a break up of a relationship or a divorce or a failed friendship, you know this same grief. You know that this grief is separate from your acceptance of the truth of the change. You must grieve. Grief is not an indication of lack of understanding. Chronic grief may indicate a rejection of the truth of death, but even this is not indicative of a lack of understanding. Things that are understood can be rejected. We must make it clear that you are not obligated to understand or accept death. You will die anyway. Others will die anyway. And you will continue to cycle through remembering and forgetting. If you choose to understand and accept death, here are some key elements to consider: DEATH IS A PART OF LIFE, NOT THE OPPOSITE OF LIFE. Death is normal. It is not a surprise. You know very early in life that it will come. This does not mean you will not be sad or upset when it comes to others or even to yourself, but one of the primary foundations for accepting death is to stop pretending that it is a surprise element of life. DEATH ADDS MEANING, IT DOES NOT NEGATE MEANING. The fact that you will die does not negate the effects of a life lived. There may have been so much more you wanted to do, or that you know someone could have done, but they will do it. You will do it. The ideas survive. The body is recycled. The fact that death will come to all and even to this universe in billions of years does not make that time meaningless. It makes everything on the other side of death and every life beyond that ever more meaningful. This life means more to you than any life has ever meant before this. And future lives will mean even more. This is not because early lives are meaningless, but that death helps comprehend that meaning of every single day of that life lived. You carry this forward into the next life, and the next. LIVE YOUR LIFE SO THAT YOUR DEATH IS A PART OF IT, NOT AN INTERRUPTION OF IT. One of the more comforting ways to accept death is to live life. To truly live it. To make the choices you mean to make. To say the things you wish to say. To reach out to those you wish to reach. To allow room for others to not be what you expect of them. To allow room for you to fail. To allow room for you to succeed. To play, to experiment, to lay around and do nothing, to be irresponsible and upset and annoyed. To be filled with bliss and love and affection. All of this is life. There is nothing that is not life. To live this means to aim for what you prefer, to navigate through that which you do not prefer, and to embrace all of it as yours. GRATITUDE AND APPRECIATION ARE FUELS FOR ENTHUSIASM AND KINDNESS, and these build the greatest bridges between life and death. Expressing and acknowledging all that you appreciate and for which you are grateful helps to fuel your enthusiasm and helps to increase the radius of your kindness. This cannot be stressed enough. The practice of this awareness is quite easy to ignore, and in some cases we know it nearly impossible to extract from a difficult life, but even in the darkest of lives there are moments that can be considered. One need not start a gratitude journal or some other ritual that might reduce the effects of appreciation by turning it into repetitiveness. Simply take a moment as you remember, as you feel it, and hold it for a moment in your consciousness. Let this float from you like energetic spores to share in the world. Many of you make it a common practice to complain, to notice what you do not want, to notice what you do not like, to fight against that which is unfair and ugly, and we can say that this easily becomes 45% to 75% of our students' conscious dynamic. This is not a bad thing. We are merely saying that it is a choice. And that you have other choices. You do not have to stop your good fights, your noticing of injustices, your navigation of preferences and repulsions, but you can lay down alongside all of this the truth of wonder and joy and love of this life. Noticing "the bad" in life fuels your self-karmic dance through life, while a focus on "the good" fuels your enthusiasm, vitality, and kindness. Both are necessary elements, but one tends to be easier to ignore. When the emphasis is primarily on your disappointments, losses, struggles, and on "the bad," then death comes as an interruption that seems to come before you got a chance to live. Allowing room for the enthusiasm, kindness, and vitality lets you fully live so that death comes as a part of life. LIVE FOR MORE THAN LIFE. Live for Joy. Live for Happiness. Live for Love. Live for Meaning. Live for You. Live for Animals. Live for Curiosity. Live for People. Live for more than life. This makes death come as a comma in your existence rather than as a traumatic halt. UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD, YOU ARE ALIVE. Living with a fear of death or a rejection of it can drain you of life force long before death will. So live as if you are alive until you are not. And finally: CONTINUE TO LEARN NEW THINGS LEARNING can sometimes become a passive element in a life that reduces the meaning and quality of life so that death comes looming as an interruption. When you consciously make the effort and choice to continue learning, you are choosing to live not only until you die, but far beyond death. LEARNING is as constant as Change. To hook into the momentum of Learning is to hook into your persistence of existence. You cannot change the fact that change exists. You cannot change the fact that existence exists. You cannot NOT learn. To consciously embrace any of these truths is beneficial, but to embrace and nurture Learning is to embrace all of it. We have spoken to you about the process of death in other exchanges, and we can tell you over and over about the nature of life after death, but today we remind you to live as a path of acceptance of death. You will die. You will live. You will do both. If you die tomorrow, you will want to have known that you lived today. We will open the floor for a few questions: QUEUE IS NOW OPEN Yes, Maureen. Maureen: Michael, is this session today with you, and what we have learned, reference what Troy and I were talking about on January 16th: Maureen: I feel like I'm having to come to terms with death in a way that is "new". Troy: Same here. A new level. Not intentionally, Maureen. But in a year where death will be prominently featured, it is helpful to look at the concept in new ways and meaningful ways that help to bring understanding. Many of our students are finding the necessity to perceive, understand, and accept death in a new way this year. Next, Colleen. Colleen: Could you speak more about exit points? How are these determined? How does a person skip an exit point? How does one recognize that an exit point was avoided? Exit Points are managed by Essence. There have to be Exit Points considered upon creation of a life. This is because death will come. Since this is a fact of life, Essence anticipates various factors that might contribute to "the best deaths" and the timing of those deaths. There tend to be an average of 3 Exit Points set up, and up to 12. These are not hidden from Personality, but Personality does not have the capacity for access to that information or the capacity for processing it. Comprehending Exit Points is the equivalent of "try to think of no color." Every thought of no color is a color. Every effort to consider an Exit Point is redirected toward living, toward life, toward existence. This is because the body is designed to hold its form in matter. YOU may continue to exist, but the matter that forms your physical body returns to the Physical Plane. To consider this is counter to its design to live, to survive. So Essence sets these up and they are coded into the body in various ways that look exactly like life to the body. For lack of a better word, these are fragile threads and dissolve over time. Or they are reinforced, depending upon parameters set by Essence. If the threads are reinforced, they are because the life is collecting the experiences relative to making that Exit Point relevant. If they are dissolving, then that Exit Point is passed. Sometimes one can sense when an Exit Point was passed. These are usually marked by a sharp dive into grief 'for no reason" and then a burst of vitality and focus on moving forward. These are symptoms that can indicate many things, so they are not easy to differentiate from just having a bad day, but some who are sensitive enough and know their dynamic of emotional landscape well, they can sense the Exit Point was passed. DianeHB: What do you mean they are "coded" into the body? in DNA? Diane, the "coding" is subtle energy that is "threaded" in various ways throughout the body. Depending on this placement of threading there is an event triggered. If this is based in illness and aging, then it is in the DNA. If it is relative to a combination of external factors such as disaster, murder, accident, etc. then that thread is part of a network among all involved. DianeHB: wow We will add that while Essence designs Exit Points into the life before birth, Alternate Exit Points are developed through cumulative actions and choices of the Personality outside of that original set. We will conclude with Claire's question. Next, Claire. Claire: "This is not to say that all suicides are conscious choices, but that many are. Whether suicide is a choice or a result of other factors..." Can you elaborate on this statement, in view of the fact that you always stress the importance of Choice in everything? In what way is suicide not a Choice? Suicide will always be a choice, but not a conscious choice. When suicide is seen as the only choice, it is usually not a conscious choice. That is because when awareness is involved, then the range of choice is much clearer. When there is little awareness, or little consciousness, then it may seem that it is the only choice. Claire: Wouldn't that be true of most suicides then? We are speaking here of those who suicide from despair, not from the choice to end a life in a body that is dying. Claire: Yes, those are different. Claire, no. Many make the choice to end their life even as they know there are other solutions. They still make the choice to end the life. When it is thought or felt that there is no other option, then it is not a conscious choice. When it is chosen even as other options are clear, then it is a conscious choice. When suicide is a conscious choice, it is usually not from despair. Consider this analogy: The difference between a sky diver who plummets to the ground and a person who leaps from a bridge is not different in the end, but it is very different in the choice to jump and most of the fall toward death. Both who die on impact will reach the same point, but how and why they got there makes a difference. We must conclude here for today. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now. We are as alive as any of you. We are just not as dense. And the humor is intended. Goodbye, for now.

    Core Values of Sage

    [This material was originally posted by NickG as a private session transcript on May 18, 2016. Permission was granted for placement in the Study Library.] Nicholas33: Hello to you too Michael. When we had the session on manifesting essence you stated something along the lines of the role having core values as a foundation to build upon. You gave me some examples for the Sage but I was wondering if I can have the core values of the other roles as well. MEntity: Yes ... SAGE - Communication, Expression, Fun, Levity, Innocence, Teaching, Learning, and being a living example of One's Personal Philosophy. ... Keep in mind that these Core Values will be upheld in some way, even if they are upheld in desperate and unhealthy ways. These can be upheld in ways that serve only the self, serve only others, or serve a balance between the two. ### end of transcript ### Note: You may comment on the original post.

    Michael Speaks: April 2005

    April 3, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks – Open Floor [M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin your queue for questions, though we are aware that “tibtyc” will go first. So you may begin, “tibtyc.” [Tibtyc] Greetings. I read in Messages from Michael: “There is only growth, often difficult, mostly painful because so few of you are willing to learn through joy.” How can we better learn through joy? And how can we learn to like joy, prefer it to pain? That is my question. [M Entity] To learn to enjoy… JOY does often require a sort of self-brainwashing, or more specifically, an override of the programming from which you currently run. Many of you are raised in cultures that “reward” struggle, ‘hard work’, suffering, victimization, etc. There is a great amount of teaching and imprinting handed down that equates all good things as being frivolous and even, ironically, BAD. Those who struggle through poverty or pain are more likely to be lifted to a kind of honor that has an unquestioned integrity and position. Those who are enjoying life then have the unsavory position of being guilted, or held responsible for taking more than their share from the common. Prosperity, which we define as having a sense of fulfillment throughout your Centers by your own standards, is daunting, particularly for older souls, because of the imprinting and distraction of guilt. [Tibtyc] Like, Beethoven suffered more than Mozart, thus was a better composer? [M Entity] It could be said (and has been said), yes. There are also fears within the Older Soul that having a certain amount of Prosperity will segregate you from what you have come to know as comfortable and familiar. In other words, if you find a healthy, loving relationship, then you will be segregated from those around you who do not. If you were to find an easy funnel of material security, it would then segregate you from those who have not. [Tibtyc] But it seems that for many of us learning through suffering is more FUN than joy. [M Entity] It could be described as “fun,” but that would be a misnomer. It is not genuinely “fun” for the Personality; it is painful. It could be said that the value gained on the other side of that pain, though, may be interpreted as “worth it.” There are many ways a fragment can begin to learn through Joy, Prosperity, Pleasure instead of Suffering, Loss, and Pain. We will describe two of the more popular ways now: The most direct means of overriding the programming from your culture is through using that programming “against itself,” so to speak. Instead of thinking of your Joy as being something to TAKE or GET from life, it is suggested that you RECEIVE or CREATE it. In other words: you may passively invite the joy, and genuinely acknowledge that joy when it is present. You may actively create that joy, as well, with the intentions of sharing it with at least one other person in some way, so as to divert guilt. The key is in the consciousness used to experience those moments of Joy, whether that Joy is passively attracted or actively created. [Tibtyc] Sounds like self-remembering. [M Entity] If you choose to passively allow it, then it may do you some good to create what has come to be called a Gratitude Journal. Without forcing yourself, write down at least 3 things a day that you have genuinely felt grateful for having experienced. If you were to do this for one week, you may find a great amount of Joy being more easily extracted through your experiences. If you were to do this for one month, it would be easy to transform yourself into having the ability to grasp joy from even the worst of scenarios. [Tibtyc] Grasp joy – but is that learning? [M Entity] If you are creating Joy, you can do so on a small scale, first: invite a friend to the movies, to coffee, for a walk. Take yourself to the movies, for a coffee, for a walk. In those instances, simply acknowledge that you are in some way allowing your Joy to emanate out and about, affecting the world in a positive way, rather than in a defensive way. In response to Tibtyc: We would certainly consider the act of grasping joy as having been a great learning experience. [faldec] not to mention it feels good [M Entity] Do you really believe that you must be pummeled in a classroom in order to learn math? Do you really believe you must be falling from a cliff as your only means to enjoy nature? Do you really believe you must be assaulted as your only means to learn about Love? [Tibtyc] A part of me does. [M Entity] We would easily state with great validity that many have learned to enjoy mathematics without an eraser to the head; that many have learned to enjoy nature without bodily impact; that many have learned to enjoy Love without bruises. The other method of learning to enjoy JOY is really only an extension of the first suggestion: CHOOSE IT. By this we mean that you ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE, WITHOUT EXCEPTION. You can extract many dimensions from a single experience, and it can always be your choice to find/allow the JOY. This is why it is easier to remain with less Joy, because your design allows you to extract even the minutest elements of Joy from the worst of scenarios. That ability can be seductive. [Tibtyc] Like enjoying bad things? [M Entity] Many of you KNOW you can extract the Joy from the worst, so you settle for a certain level of existence, because you can romanticize it later. In response to Tibtyc: It is not that you enjoy “bad things,” but rather that you know you can extract the joy from it, if necessary. Most of the time, that extraction is more a means of healing, than a means of True Joy. True Joy is CHOSEN, CREATED, or ALLOWED. If you find you are extracting Joy from a scenario or experience, then you may do so, but CHOOSE AGAIN, CREATE AGAIN, or INVITE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. We are not saying, nor are we implying, that you can move through the physical plane without scathing, but we do say that pain, suffering, and loss are not the only forms of learning. They are CHOICES. This is not to say that you deliberately CHOOSE Pain, Loss, Suffering, but if you find yourself experiencing these states, each always presents an opportunity to choose again. If you find you are overwhelmed and feel that no choice can alleviate that feeling, then choose something especially loving for yourself, such as waiting, seeking help, calling a friend, watching/listening to something inspirational. Anything that will allow you to step back for a moment, gain some clarity, and then choose again. It is not merely poetic that we say, “You are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn.” It is the truth. [Carrot Wax 1] In David Hawkins’ book, “Power vs. Force”, he described a scale of consciousness and energy manifestation from 1 to 1000. This goes from absolute Shame (20) to Unconditional Love (540) to Enlightenment (600) to Infinite Soul (1000). How accurate is this and how does this relate to manifestation, soul age, and conscious connection to essence? [M Entity] This system of measurement is different from our system in the same way that Astrology or Tarot is different from our system. They cannot be accurately correlated, even if there are some parallels. It appears to be a valid system of measurement, though subjective and local (not Universal). It could not be used outside of your species, for instance. It would have difficulty translating into our system as we could easily see a Final Level Old Soul (technically speaking) still experiencing Shame, and we do not subscribe to the general concept of “Enlightenment.” [Tibtyc] What's wrong with it? [M Entity] Nothing. We did not say there was anything wrong with it. The general concept of Enlightenment is seen as a conclusive state. We have yet to see a conclusion to the experience of growth; therefore, “Enlightenment” is subjective and is more accurately understood contextually and as a transition, perhaps. [Carrot Wax 1] I guess I interpret Enlightenment from that scale as “Non-dualism.” [M Entity] This is why we do not subscribe to the notion, as it is quite subjective and contextual, though valid in describing a particular transition or realization, yes. [faldec] What is the significance, if any, of the bodies excavated at site 117 in Jebel Sahaba in Upper Egypt? It seems an unusual burial site for Egyptians because of the fact the bodies appeared to be buried with wounds and the weapons still in the bodies. [M Entity] The significance will be relative and subject to interpretation, but the reality of a prehistoric “holocaust” would be valid. This appears to be the result of a growing division among local communities over the use of foods and the level of responsibility required of each other to provide for all vs. the hoarding for the stronger, more privileged. Surprisingly, it was those who stood for the equality of all who were able to slaughter those who would otherwise leave those less-able without foods. [faldec] like the people vs. the aristocracy? [M Entity] The social tiers were not as defined as “aristocracy vs. the people,” but more defined as the “Strong and Useful” vs. the “Weak and Useless.” The concept of caring for those weaker than the independent was not looked upon as practical. [H2OSprtlvr] Can a fragment, in one given lifetime, gain a soul age level and if a fragment feels they have mastered or accomplished one goal (say like growth) could they work on another goal in one given lifetime? Like change their Overleaves perhaps? [M Entity] Fragments do change soul ages and levels within a single lifetime, though it is rare. It is not as uncommon among Older Souls, however. In many cases those transitional lifetimes are experienced, literally, as two lifetimes in one incarnation. When a Soul Age or Soul Level shifts within a lifetime, it is rare that the Overleaves will change, but in the rare instance that one would choose to do so, it would take a minimum of 7 years for the new design to be implemented. [H2OSprtlvr] like shifting from a goal of growth to a goal of acceptance? [M Entity] For a fragment to change Overleaves in any situation, a great trauma is usually the only way in which to do so. [faldec] like a coma? M Entity: The body must literally close down and change its structure on levels on and below the levels known as DNA. A coma is a common means of shifting Overleaves and shifting Essences. [H2OSprtlvr] you can’t just make a CHOICE to change your goal or Overleaves? [Tibtyc] Essences? Like a walk.in? [M Entity] Overleaves are biological. They can no more easily be replaced by a simple choice than can a limb or eye color. A fragment may superimpose or USE a different Overleaf as a means to accommodate a short term agenda, but that is no more a change in Overleaves than the dying of your hair or false contact lenses. Yes, tibtyc, in response to your question: as in Walk-ins. It could be said that one is then limited if one cannot simply CHOOSE to change his Overleaves, but that is simply not the case. You already chose your Overleaves in the same way that you chose your body and genetic code. You chose your Overleaves in the same way that you chose Earth. Choices exist on many levels, extending between the levels of Essence and Personality. [H2OSprtlvr] well…that’s where validation of my Overleaves is tricky… I see myself in one goal for awhile and then it appears I have another goal for awhile and so it leaves me confused. [M Entity] We remind you that your GOAL is not something that describes your character, but rather as to where your character is drawn and to where it funnels its experiences, ultimately. In many instances, it is actually describing what your character IS NOT; hence its being a GOAL. [H2OSprtlvr] I get that [H2OSprtlvr] that makes it clearer for me… thank you [M Entity] We can help you determine the validity of your Goal. There are definitive factors that would help with this. It may also be of interest to you that each individual has 3 facets of Overleaves, many times not matching one another. Beyond the True Overleaves, which are on record in the Akashic Plane, there are also those Overleaves of which you EXPECT of yourself, as well as those describing what others expect OF you. This is where many channeling discrepancies come into play if the channel is not using our access to the Akashic Records. [slacnj] My question if you can answer it with a short answer is: When what you want involves another person making a choice how can you learn to either manifest that together or allow what you want into your life some other way? [M Entity] The first choice to make above all choices in this instance is to choose to trust, honor, and allow the choice of another, even if it does not comply with your own. If you are in a position, for instance, in which a boss’s choice will or won’t create a path for your career, you still have a choice. You can choose to quit, find another route within the company; requesting specific parameters in which your efforts can be unquestionably worthy of progress, etc. If you cannot move beyond a blockage created by another person, you can only make choices around, through, under, beyond that point in the same way that you would navigate any obstacle. We CAN say, however, that learning to shift your OWN energy many times resonates out of another person the very thing you wish to have as support for your choices. There are many versions of one person in your space. You are not limited to experiencing only the personality that chooses to block you, or whose choices block you. There are multitudes of versions of any fragment and a shift in your own perspective, energy, and actions can literally shift the energetic identity of another individual to a version more willing to help. They are not replaced, but rather the potential within that person to support your choice then has the option of manifesting. Most of your obstacles seen as other people are only obstacles as reflective of obstacles within. Clear the internal philosophies supporting those obstacles and you naturally clear the external reflection of those obstacles. [H2OSprtlvr] in other words… changing your attitude would change the outcome sometimes? [M Entity] Sometimes one of the fastest and easiest ways to create harmony between yourself and another is to seek out what the other fragment NEEDS. Of course, we are speaking only in terms of obstacles, not in terms of hurtful interferences to your own choices. You may interpret people around you in terms of how they express their Sub-Personalities. A single fragment can be a “different” person to several different people’s experiences. An internal shift of your own can invite an internal shift in another. In other words, the Sub-Personality in you that deals with Obstacles might gently invite the Sub-Personality in who takes care of creating Harmony. It could be said beyond all of this that there are at least 12 different approaches to changing a dynamic with another person so that your choices are in harmony. Studying the definitions of the 12 Support Positions would give you the methods in which you could improve your ability to generate harmony as you relate to others who may be obstacles. Good Night to all of you. We will conclude here.
  4. [Excerpt from OMW: What I Learned in 2013] MEntity: In a year that was threaded with the energy of Sage, you would want to look at these 7 elements that would tend to be prompted as part of any attempts to learn during the year: What efforts did you make to bring into your awareness the recognition of innocence in yourself and others? What efforts did you make to bring levity to your struggles and challenges? What did you do to bring honesty to your communication? What did you do to truly communicate (listen, as well as express)? What efforts did you make to own the responsibility of your influence on others who may be affected by how and what you express? What did you do to play? What truths did you face? In asking these questions of yourself, you will see just how much of your year was about these elements as a thread or undercurrent through nearly everything?
  5. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2013] [GeraldineB] Michael, yesterday we received the seven elements that prompted our learning in the Sage year of 2013. Could we have the 7 elements for the upcoming Year of the Priest, 2014? [MEntity] How willing were you to share in the enthusiasm that is expressed and exhibited by others? What responsibility did you take for how you reflect the best of others back to them? What responsibility did you take for what you saw reflected about yourself in others? How willing were you to ask for help? How willing were you to see that another may need help, even if not asked? How much freedom did you allow for others to evolve at their own pace, regardless of your contributions from your own position in your own evolution? How much intimacy did you allow in your life, even with your wounds, your shame? How willing were you to allow the wounding and shame of others into your life that is not your own? (counting as one element here) We may elaborate upon these, of course, but these are fair for guiding one through the higher paths of 2014.
  6. [Excerpt from Ask Michael: January 2015] 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 contributing to the creation of your life, or do you feel you are the created result of your life.) 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)?
  7. [Excerpt from Ask Michael: January 2016] Janet: Michael, for the last couple of years at this time you have given us a list of the 7 elements that prompt learning for the year, in the form of questions to ask ourselves. Can you provide the 7 elements that prompt our learning in this Server year? MEntity: Will you make the effort to care enough? (Are you willing to do the work that caring invites you to do?) Are you willing to care only because you care? (caring for the sake and reward of caring) Can you care about "the world," "others," and yourself at the same time? Are you willing to step back, rest, and recover when you feel you are no longer effective in caring? (caring for yourself as your primary fuel, and not as your last resort). Are you willing to respond rather than react? Are you willing stop being unintentionally or intentionally hurtful (to yourself or others)? Are you willing to trust your impulses, instincts, and do the work of providing your very basic needs? All of the above questions speak to the heightened invitation to care in a Server year. In a year when the invitation to care is heightened, the concept is not enough. There is work to do. There is rest required. There are priorities of distribution of fuel for the capacity to continue caring. The idea of reward and benefit from caring may keep some from caring if the results are not immediate, but the Server year comes when long-term care is needed for preferred changes to come and for safe development to be secured. The above elements of the Server year can help you to check in and determine where you are and what might need to be done at any given moment.
  8. I find the following chart helpful and I wanted to share it with you all on this site. Note: This precise source of this material is unclear and is possibily not from Michael.
