May 1, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS – Open Floor [M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. [freyaisissuz] Michael has said in the past that in the teacher-student relationship we may learn from them and they learn from us. That indicates to me an evolving teaching. Do they still say that is true, and in what ways are we learning from each other today? How are we All doing? [M Entity] Of course we remain learning from you as much as you learn from us. There has come to be known many, many universal truths, routines, patterns, and repetitions that we can easily teach to all of you, but there are always “new” ways to experience life. We will not experience life through a body as you may experience that in your current time frame. We have learned and comprehended a great deal about the Physical Plane, but several of those fragments who have come to be known as our “students” have contributed to our own evolution of understanding the nuances of life on the Physical Plane. For while we are made up of 1050 Essences with an excess of 200,000 lifetimes of experience, there are far more of you collecting data within current times and through different “eyes.” In answer to “how you are all doing,” we would have to say that only you can determine the answer to that question, for we have no investment in a standard against which to measure your lives. [freyaisissuz] Of course that is true ;-), yet in terms of the ‘evolution’ of the teachings? [M Entity] We would say that most of those who claim to be our students have simply found a rest stop and remain stagnant in the comforts of the basic knowledge. Very few of our students actively implement the knowledge we impart. This is not to say that we “mind,” for we do not. We do not impart this information with an expectation. However, for purposes of response to your question, it is valid that few “use” this teaching. As long as there are divisions among those who work with our teaching, we can safely state that there are many who have “missed the point.” “Missing the point,” though, is a valid path of learning and experiencing, and for those fragments who choose that path, other areas of life are the priority. In those instances, it would do those fragments well to consciously acknowledge their true, primary philosophy, so transformation can begin, if they choose. Our teaching runs counter to politics and competition, though its terminology and construct can certainly be used in any arena of life for any purpose, even if counter to the intention. This is not unusual among humans on the path. [freyaisissuz] Point well taken, thank you for that clarification Michael. [M Entity] Many will cloak their true, primary philosophy with the terminology of a more peaceful philosophy, giving room for self-justification and permission for unconscious motives. This is why we suggest identifying the true, primary philosophy, first, if one is truly interested in implementing the philosophy of our own teaching. As with most teachings, the truth can be summed up in a phrase or word, and since ours can be summed up in the phrase “you are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn,” we would say that those who are more concerned with the choices of others, while losing sight of their own, might be “missing the point.” Understanding the motivations, experiences, feelings, reactions, interpretations, within your own ability to choose, is where you will find the most use for our teaching. If that is your choice. We will add something to our response, then. When we refer to your “primary philosophy,” we are referring to two things: Your Attitude and the Structure through which you gather your experiences, such as a teaching, imprinting, cultural biases, etc. Many of our students are greatly influenced by the Young Soul philosophies of your current world, yet are quite unaware of this. In gaining that awareness of influence, the intended philosophies could find stability. When one is using an unconscious philosophy that is counter to the “peaceful, cloaking terminology” of another philosophy, one is in the Negative Pole of the Attitude. [sandt1222] Does that mean there is anything we can or should do to ease tension in the community? [M Entity] The tension among what you call “the community” is merely a reflection of the tension being addressed within each of our students. We do not say this as a new age cliché. Most of our students navigate the Physical Plane through a maze of Young Soul obstacles, battling the want to exclude oneself from “it all,” while wanting desperately to be a part of the game. This is reflected in your community. The division and contention within your “community” is the result of a Young Soul paradigm superimposed over a community of Older Souls who seek nothing beyond that which they have become acclimated… yet. [sandt1222] All these divisions can be physically painful. It does not seem that it “should” be this way. [M Entity] The divisions among your community are based on the very concepts of “individuality” and “specialness,” which are Young Soul philosophies. An insidious fear among many Older Souls who live in your Young Soul paradigm is that they are “not special.” You will find many Older Souls, particularly Mature Souls, among our teaching and among other progressive philosophies, grasping at terms and definitions as a means to desperately capture an image of their specialness. This is a result of Young Soul imprinting from your world, which says that you must prove your “uniqueness” or find some means to stand apart. Many use the Roles and Overleaves and Soul Ages as a means to define these feelings of specialness. Others use Past Life scenarios to compensate for the lack of feeling special. We will clarify that UNIQUENESS is quite different from SPECIALNESS. Uniqueness is what you ALREADY ARE. Specialness is what you THINK YOU SHOULD BE. Uniqueness stands on its own. Specialness requires constant feedback. Many do not care about their uniqueness, and struggle desperately for what could make them special. It could easily be said, then, that the paradigm of Special vs. Not Special (a young soul philosophy) is the root of your community's division. When your community begins to understand the Uniqueness among all of the groups of study, then your community will have implemented an Older Soul philosophy, and our teachings may have more meaning. [Tibtyc] Greetings, Michael. Where do you stand on the subject of copyright? I would like to write about you, or rather the ideas coming from you. This would probably mean quoting from different channels, but the prospect of doing that is kind of scary, from the viewpoint of copyright… Any advice? That was my question. [M Entity] When you are working with material from the physical plane, however inspired from non-physical sources, the question of ownership and copyright is valid. It is quite within the rights of any fragment to quote another. There are very few restrictions upon that freedom. As to where we “stand,” we have nothing to gain or lose by your efforts. We have no cosmic “ATMs” through which we could reap the rewards of the printed word. [Tibtyc] There are unpublished manuscripts, I was partly thinking of those… [M Entity] These manuscripts are not conclusive words trapped by print. The same can come again through any of our valid channels. We are quite available and would remain so for any printed word we wish to impart. [Tibtyc] That brightens the picture… [M Entity] In other words, the concepts can be extracted from the “unpublished manuscripts” and posed to an available channel through which you wish to work with us. We may speak on those same subjects through that channel, allowing for more freedom for public print. [Tibtyc] There are especially beautiful formulations… [M Entity] If you are more concerned with the attachment of the print to the reputations of the fragments who collected it, then we would then have to suggest that your efforts require their participation and permission, for the most part. [Fyredeva11] On another list, someone brought up the question of validity that 2 persons channeled as being in the same entity are ACTUALLY FROM the same entity, given that there must be tens of thousands of cadre groups each with Entity 1/5, for example. I ask this in skepticism of having so many channeled celebrities in our cadre. It seems to fall under the need for “specialness” you just spoke of. [M Entity] It is valid that many fragments channeled as being within the same Cadre and Entity are technically NOT, though the numbers used for convenience are identical. This is especially true of many “celebrities” (historical or current) who are identified as being from among the same Energy Ring as our students. This is simply due to lack of understanding the structure of sentience. Those we call our “students” are wholly limited to a group of 12 Cadres; an Energy Ring. We have approximately 100,000 students. This is not to say that others outside of our Agreements will not become students, but we speak of those with whom we have original. [Fyredeva11] thank you…(I knew Michael Jackson wasn't in my entity!) [M Entity] The confusion as from which Cadre and Entity a fragment comes could be clarified by including the Energy Ring number, but this is still a confusing concept for several of our students and channels. We say this more as a statement of the limitations placed upon the conveyance of the simplicity of the system, rather than as a statement of your ability to understand. For some concepts, our channels are simply limited or uninterested. In other instances, a clear distortion of the system is perpetuated, lending even more confusion to a rather simple construct. While including the Energy Ring number would help in clarifying specific Cadre and Entity, even the count of Energy Rings repeats. This means that an Energy Ring 3, Cadre 7, Entity 4, exists in multiples, as well. To help your understanding of the simple, yet awesome, structure of human sentience, here is how we are cast: 1 Ring = 12 Cadres 12 Rings = 1 Sphere 12 Spheres = 1 Arrangement 12 Arrangements = 1 Composition 12 Compositions = 1 Harmony (up to) 7 Harmonies = 1 Design ALL of a Specific Sentient species we refer to as a “Design.” There are never more than 7 Harmonies in 1 Design. This structure then extends and changes when including other Sentience. One can see why this is confusing to most, not because of complication, but simply by the sheer enormity of the visualization. [Fyredeva11] which one is our energy ring in? [M Entity] Within all of this daunting information, it can safely be said that if you are studying our teaching, you are within the Cadres and Entities of the same Energy Ring, even if that Energy Ring is numbered differently through our different channels. Through this channel, we would call your Ring Number 2, Harmony 1. [Fyredeva11] Artisan flavored? [M Entity] It could be described as so, but this would be quite simplistic, if not explored beyond the assumptions. We are from Energy Ring 1, Cadre 11, Entity 4, Harmony 1. We are part of the same “Sphere” as our students. We are from Sphere 2. The previous Sphere 1 (12 Energy Rings) were part of what has come to be known as “Lemurians” or those less-physically dense, though they were still of “human” consciousness. The mathematical meaning of the numbers referencing your positions is more influential than whether you literally share the same Entity. [Fyredeva11] positions? [M Entity] Your resonance and compatibility among you are difficult to validate in terms of Entity and Cadre accurately. Being “wrong” about whether you are from the same Entity will not slow your progress. Yes, Positions. For instance, a 3rd Entity will still have a specific, mathematical meaning, regardless of its Cadre or Energy Ring. This mathematical meaning can often be the binding force between two fragments who are technically NOT from the same Entity. On the contrary, those technically within the same Entity may find absolutely no resonance during specific lifetimes, especially when interpreted through False Personality. Incidentally, Michael Jackson is in your Entity, Kerrin. Celebrity does not preclude a fragment from being our student. Only Choice can do that. [Annsge] So Michael J could have been a Michael student. [M Entity] Michael Jackson has been exposed to our teaching. The Personality known as Michael Jackson has chosen to abdicate Agreements with us for this lifetime, but this does not alter anything for his Essence. [Annsge] According to some in the Michael community, Jackson was Mozart. [M Entity] It often a mistake to assume that similarities between a past personality and those of a current personality validates a reincarnation. It is more often the case that a fragment creates a spectrum of personalities across a theme, rather than recreating the same for the convenience of recognition. [Fyredeva11] it just seems odd that if there are, say, a few hundred souls incarnate from an entity- that they would be so far removed [M Entity] Kerrin, in what way do you use the words “so far removed?” [Fyredeva11] I mean in so “different” a world. I guess Hollywood seems like a different world, in a sense. [M Entity] We remind you that our students, even among “your world,” are quite unique among themselves and often cannot relate. [Annsge] Does the 7th Internal Monad always mean physical death? [M Entity] No, but only rarely. Those who transit a Soul Age within one lifetime will go through a psychological “death” of sorts, and during the process, despite being alive, the 7th Internal Monad would apply. By extension, a new “Birth” would also result. However, in these rare cases of Soul Age transition within a lifetime, there is also an overall “arc” of the 7 Internal Monads that remain within the context of physical aging. The 7th Internal Monad is almost always a physical death and how that death's impact is processed by the fragment and his remaining family and friends. This Internal Monad, as we said, can also be WITHOUT a physical death, but through a major, pivotal, transitional, transformation in the psychological makeup of a fragment shifting in Soul Age within a lifetime. [Tibtyc] Could you clarify “arc”? [M Entity] Physical Birth to Physical Death could be described as “the Arc of Internal Monads.” Psychological Birth to Psychological Death could be described then as a “Cycle of Internal Monads.” A Cycle is all that is necessary to be completed in the process of moving from one Soul Age or Level to another, so for many Older Souls, physical death is not necessary to begin the new perceptions. This process is not popular. Most fragments choose to reflect from outside of the lifetime, in review, rather than to implement such high awareness from within the demands of Physicality. [Tibtyc] This would be a review within a lifetime, of that lifetime? [M Entity] Yes. Review is always necessary in the process of creating a new cycle of Internal Monads. This process can be quite demanding and challenging while within the lifetime. Once a Soul Age or Level has been transited within a lifetime, it will usually take the next 7 months for Review, and the next 7 years for implementation of the new perception. [slacnj] By my accounting there are 21 extra fragments in your entity. You said there are wild cards, one time, but I wasn't sure if you wanted this information to come out now to explain the difference. I jokingly also speculated that some people have aisle seats and some have window seats. [M Entity] A “Wild Card” is a fragment who “straddles” two casting positions. When a Cadence in “incomplete,” those fragments at the beginning of the following Cadence will then “fill two positions.” slacnj: so you can be in more than one cadence at a time? [M Entity] Yes. Our channels envision this “wild card” scenario quite differently among them, with some visualizing a more condensed perfection of an Entity structure, with wild cards being “stragglers hanging on” from the “edges.” Asymmetry is required of an Entity for it have “wild cards.” However, that same asymmetry is no longer in effect, ultimately BECAUSE of the “wild cards” fulfilling the positions required for symmetry. [slacnj] but 1050 is 21 more than 3 times 343 [slacnj] you have 3 extra cadences [M Entity] While an Entity of 1029 is the most common symmetrical configuration, 1050 is not asymmetrical. We do not have any “wildcards.” If an Entity's count is divisible by 7, there are no “wild cards.” It is not in the “extra” cadences that asymmetry is created, but in the incompletion of a single Cadence. If positions 5, 6, 7 are “empty” in a final Cadence of Sages, then the positions of 1, 2, 3, of the following Cadence of Artisans (for example) will fulfill 5, 6, 7 consecutively. This “straddling” creates a fragment who is at once intensely unstable, while inherently being one of the most stabilizing forces known, as well. How that “wildness” is exhibited is determined by the choice of the Essence and its current Personality. [slacnj] everyone wants to be special here [M Entity] Your humor is not lost on us. [freyaisissuz] unique at least [M Entity] We know of no one more unique than each of you. The spectrum of the beauty among you is as valid as the patterns we perceive in planes even beyond our own. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
This session was recovered from the old Yahoo group. May 18, 2000 CHAT TRANSCRIPT: 051800 OPEN FLOOR Note: Otterly = Troy Tolley Transcribed by MARYBV and Moderated by Sandra Dent NOTE from Troy: A section of this transcript was edited out. It was on the 7 female archetypes. Since the piece was noted by Michael to be incomplete and inaccurate, I'd like to work with them further before publishing this. Thank you for your patience. MEntity: We are here now. One moment. Hello to all of you. We realize we have another "open floor" night, so you may begin your questions as you please. <Silkee_99> I was hearing a voice, then repeating or translating to another person... when I woke up it seemed like I had been channeling. Was I dreaming that I was channeling, or what? I mean, was it just a dream, or just expressing an ego/desire, or is something telling me to channel. MEntity: It appears you have 3 students of your own that are Astral. Young fragments that have grown to "trust" you. While you are physical, you can act as a teacher for your "friends" while they themselves are Astral, between lives. Teaching and guidance are not one way. What you experienced as "translation" was an "uploading" if you will, of information from your own Instinctive Center and conveyed to these Students. They are seeking birth, a priest, and two warriors, it seems. As part of their reintroduction to the Physical, they sought you for some insights. This does not preclude your ability to "channel" in the classic sense, but this is our perception of the "dream." <Barb> The numbers on the clock - 11:11 have become very significant to me but I don't know why - is it just for me or is this some kind of cosmic event? MEntity: Many symbols that appear to be repetitive tend to give sentience a sense that they are "meaningful." The meaning of11:11 has taken on significance because of a larger portion of people placing significance on it, but before digital clocks, it was a simple reference for time. If you find it "strikes" something within you, it may be of importance to you to seek the larger context that created significance around this number. <Barb> But I don't understand what that significance is. MEntity: That is part of the fun. We do believe you may find significance in the teachings of a Mature Priest, a female. She has written and created a context for this number, giving some valid significance to it. We believe her "name" is Solara. Though we do not discount the validity of the created context for this number, it is personal and not a Global or universal truth. <Julie> Michael, I assume that most fragments carry over talents/aptitudes from previous lives. I am interested in your comments as to what mine might be, and how they can be encouraged in all of us. MEntity: Your assumption is not entirely valid. Though some lives will retain characteristics of another life, it is not always the case. Lives appear to have clusters, themes, and they are not necessarily sequential. In addition to this, as your life unfolds, certain "parts" of it will resonate to various lives, even finding a different life resonating for your "relationships" versus "work," etc. We do not have a forum that allows clear enough connection for us to determine yours specifically at this moment. Past life "aptitudes and talents" is not something that need "encouragement." They unfold "naturally," with or without your conscious interactions. When seeking to implement a talent or aptitude that IS NOT "naturally" relevant, there are techniques to draw those in from other lives, yes. <Julie> Could Michael suggest helpful ways we might determine which lives are resonating for us in different aspects of the current life? MEntity: The most significant techniques for determining resonance from another life is to simply ask yourself. Choose a context in your life you seem to feel might have resonance with the past, and ask. Within moments, you may receive images and various indications. Allow these to flow. Regardless of your knowledge of history or geography, allow the basic pictures and elements to be pulled in. This may seem to be the "imagination" when you do this. This would be valid, but what has come to be dismissed as "just the imagination" is a actually a human's highest frequency owned. It allows transcendence of the physical, WHILE physical. All Sentience has this portal. To go into elaboration would require the entire time allotted for this exchange, but this might be a start. To summarize: Create a list of obvious categories, Work, Recreation, Intimacy, Family, etc. Include in this a context of an OVERALL theme applying now. Take a moment while showering, going to the bathroom, bathing, meditating, anything that allows the Instinctive to release its normal 'control' and ask. One Category at a time. One a week. Then take the basic pictures, time frames, etc., and search the Internet if you want more striking impact and references for validation. <Julie> Are you saying, then, that "nothing" is truly "just the imagination?" That all thought creates "something?" MEntity: In answer to your question, anything you Imagine IS Imagination, but it is a most important tool. The significance of which has only been seen in some instances in your history. There is a difference between Imagination and Fantasy, and your own sense of self can begin to sense the difference. <Barry> It has been the subject of many theories and of philosophers. Do you perceive a "force" or energy that permeates everything on the physical plane and perhaps nonphysical planes? Some call the force LOVE, some call it SPIRIT. Is it actually all part of the Tao? MEntity: Yes, we would call it TAO. There is nothing in your known world, imagination, perception, sense, tangibility, etc., that does not spring from TAO and WITHIN it. Each plane is couched within the one "above" it. Each Plane is an extension of the same. Within "your own" plane you can see a parallel and example of this. Breaking down the creation of an event: it may begin as a THOUGHT, then a FEELING, then ACTION, all the while being "tangible" and "real" to the CREATOR. Determining the related "force" within each of these stages can bring great insight. The Physical Plane can be said to be the ACTION level or Moving Center of the Tao. ALL Centers have ALL other Centers as part of itself. <Barry> So we should attempt to determine the related "force" that makes each stage... what? Possible? That is, the "force" at work behind THOUGHT, etc.? MEntity: You call it "force" because you are Physical. There is a need for new terms before recognition of this you seek can be "found." All of the answers to the Universe are held within any Plane, but each plane's 'vocabulary' extends and the mysteries are more and more comprehended. Illness and disease hold the greatest clues within the Physical Plane as to the nature of manifestation and consistency within each other "plane," ironically. The Warrior/Priest, Louise L. Hayes, has some significant breakthroughs in this "force" you seek. <Barry> So is there a type of illness or disease on planes other than the physical? MEntity: Yes, there are. Fear remains as a potential through the Causal, but in ways in which you have no reference. <Barry> What about tracing an ACTION backwards to root FEELING and THOUGHT? Helpful or not? MEntity: Yes, quite helpful. More importantly, choose an EVENT to trace "backwards." Such as your "move" recently. Choose an EVENT, then seek what ACTIONS manifested it, what FEELINGS supported it, and what THOUGHTS generated it. <Leela> The writer Philip K. Dick had a very powerful mystical experience that he called VALIS. I was reminded of it today, and I am curious as to what he was experiencing. I hope that this question is meaningful to people in some way. He found himself living in a parallel life in Rome, and various other things happened as well. He wrote about this all his life. This question may or may not be relevant to anyone. MEntity: Philip K. Dick (an Artisan/Scholar from Cadre 1/Entity 3) appears to have been writing a valid account. There does not appear to be a discrepancy here. This is material capable of catapulting many an imagination into the possibilities inherent. Though there are personal embellishments in terms of interpretation, it seems to be "honest." <Hector22> Are there any physical attributes, such as hair length e.g., that affect the intensity or quality of input & output of centering? MEntity: If you believe so. Though that would be a personal truth. Hair length, style, any physical appearance can diminish or enhance any input/output as a result of personal self-image acceptance or rejection. Sometimes a shift in personal appearance can preoccupy the Instinctive and distract from "other" input/output as it adjusts. <MaryBV> Michael, could you tell us a bit more about the people who where the "first wave" of ensouled beings on this planet (the Atlanteans). What were they like and about how much time did we, the second wave, overlap incarnate together? Is Michael a part of this first wave? MEntity: The first ensouled species on this planet were not human. They were silicon-based and you would have recognized them more as molten lava-like creatures. Agate pieces found today are literally their "bones." As far as a "first wave" and "second wave," we are unfamiliar with this concept, though a few of our channels may have their own theories. We do not exclude Otterly in this. Many of you were participants in Atlantis. The "first wave" and "second wave" may be a differentiation between the average Soul Age at the times. A parallel race, what has come to be known as "Lemurians," may also be what is referred to. As far as we know, we are of the same "wave" as you. <JJTan> Can Michael say anything about which civilization (humans or aliens) built the Great Pyramid and what was its original purpose? MEntity: This is a question that requires a bit of a stretch in imagination. We can elaborate on this more at another "time." What you see as the Pyramids are "from your future." There are a few anomalies that allow this kind of looping of time to exist and though they certainly ARE from your "past" it was not until what could be called "your future" did the concept for them occur. Many mysteries that surround the building of the Pyramids are only "mysteries" because their "reasons" for existence have literally not come to pass. To integrate within the belief structures of that era, certain aspects of each "time" were utilized. <Barry> Are you saying that in "our future" we somehow cause the pyramids to be built in "the past"? Or were/are they sent there? MEntity: Specifically, in answer to your question, your race helps build them alongside an 'alien race,' the second alien race which contacts you. Based on events that, to you, occur in your future, a need for these constructs is then created. The pyramids have been "destroyed" in some timelines, wherein the races "go back" as a means to RE-construct them. We do not "know" if this will occur "again," but this is their "history." The Pyramids have many histories. Their purpose is to act as a means to stabilize forms of transportation through time planes. We realize the science fiction aspect of this. It is not required that you accept this version of the Pyramidal reasons for being. <Julie> So then, physical plane "time travel" is/will be a reality? MEntity: It "already" is. Nearly 2/3s of your "UFO" sightings are your future, we would say. Which may or may not include actual "aliens." <Barb> Can we accomplish this as individuals - time travel? MEntity: Time travel is available to all of you instantly through Imagination. It is only within the confines of dismissal that the truth of this is missed. We will close now. Goodnight.
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2009] [Question] I'd like to know something about the Lemurians and their cycle off that you mentioned to me as happening 35,000 years ago. You said they were “a sentient species who cycled off en masse”, and that this was profound for my cadre (c1). I'd like to know how an entire sentient species can have simultaneous cycling-off. Did we run them off? [Michael Entity] The Lemurians were a species that were of a finer density than your human bodies, and some may have remembered them as “etheric,” or as having “Light Bodies,” but they were more like the luminescent “jelly-fish” of your ocean. They were a sentience living through very delicate bodies and this lent them to isolation and insularity away from other species. Their process of cycling off would be akin to how you understand a reunited entity moving from the Astral to the Causal in its evolution. Their species was few in number, relatively speaking, and their lives were of great length, structured tightly in groups, so that large groups would reach a point of cycling off at the same time. We say “at the same time,” but we mean this in terms of relative perception of time; it could take several years for the exit of a group, but once it started, it was an exponential process. Some of our students who remember the Lemurians were deeply affected by the exit of the last of the Lemurian groups. [Question] So Ramtha was a jellyfish-like entity? [Michael Entity] No. Ramtha is a conglomeration of the channel's own higher self (Essence), her ego, and then some legitimate guidance by a cycled-off entity of Human sentience. We wish to point out that the conglomeration we describe as “Ramtha” does not diminish the value of what is taught to those who find it meaningful. It just happens that the Sage/King entity enjoys theatrics as their Medium. [Question] So, they weren't going through the Soul Age Levels while on earth — but were more like using earth in an Astral-like manner? [Michael Entity] No, they progressed in Soul Age as any other sentient species extant, but progressed in groups so that the cycling off for each was in conjunction with masses of other fragments. [Question] So we did have some interaction clearly, even if they were isolated? [Michael Entity] Yes, there was a great deal of interaction between your species, but in measured and highly-structured ways. [Question] oh, so none of us ever actually had lives as lemurians? [Michael Entity] Not that we know of. To switch bodies in such a way is not something that is very appealing to sentience, unless there are hundreds of years of integration and communication between the species.
MICHAEL SPEAKS 121309 Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. [QUESTION] Hello, Michael. 1)Who was this mysterious Mikao Usui who created the modern Reiki System? 2) What were his overleaves? 3) From your perspective, what is this REIKI or SPIRITUAL ENERGY that practitioners channel...4) what are the factors that have made this practice so popular around the world? [Michael Entity] For purposes of this format of exchange, we will share a brief response to each of the questions. The fragment known as Mikao appears to be a Warrior-cast Priest who recognized the validity of subtle energies and their capacity for being harnessed and directed. The energy that is harnessed and directed is not unique to the practice called "Reiki," but that system does help bring tangible tools to the process of using the energy. The same energy could be said to be shared from the exchange of laughter, awe, and happiness or pleasure. The modern system referred to as "Reiki" has become highly political and hierarchical in many circles, but we see that this has begun to deconstruct and return to its roots in many ways. Both the political structure and this deconstruction have their flaws. The political structure is a false hierarchy of learning that can bring about false healers who have gained credibility by simply paying enough money to buy a label. The deconstructing of this political structure requires little more than reading a book and can bring about delusional exchanges of "healing" that are little more than nice thoughts. Knowing the extremes of that spectrum, we would say that the only valid method for developing the strengths capable for use of energy in this way would be through practice, feedback, and tangible evidence of effect. The energy that is used is the basic "life force" of your universe. This life force could be understood through the analogy of a computer screen that allows for a cursor to move through the pixels and light, showing up as itself wherever it is, but literally connected entirely to everything on that screen. "Reiki" then could be said to be that affect that allows for the repair of a pixel, or pixels, bringing light back, so to speak, to areas of the screen that have dimmed or have gone out. In the same way that a piano can be played by any of you, so can Reiki (or energetic healing) be practiced. However, to continue the analogy, in the same way that one can simply peck at the keys, or pound on the keys to make noise, so too can some "healers" generate energy that has no effect, or only brings irritation. And in the same way that one can learn to play a piano beautifully on one's own, through an instructor, or through a hierarchical fee plan, so can healing be learned. The piano and the noise it generates is up to the player, and how that player learns to play is up to the player. It just so happens that "Reiki" has come to be a recognizable system, and for that matter can lend itself as a strong platform for the work that a healer might wish to do. No direct harm can come from false healers, but irritation, and distraction from legitimate care, can certainly have effects. [QUESTION] I'd like to know something about the Lemurians and their cycle off that you mentioned to me as happening 35,000 years ago. You said they were “a sentient species who cycled off en masse”, and that this was profound for my cadre (c1). [COMMENT] I'd like to know how an entire sentient species can have simultaneous cycling-off [QUESTION] did we run them off? [Michael Entity] The Lemurians were a species that were of a finer density than your human bodies, and some may have remembered them as "etheric," or as having "Light Bodies," but they were more like the luminescent "jelly-fish" of your ocean. They were a sentience living through very delicate bodies and this lent them to isolation and insularity away from other species. Their process of cycling off would be akin to how you understand a reunited entity moving from the Astral to the Causal in its evolution. Their species was few in number, relatively speaking, and their lives were of great length, structured tightly in groups, so that large groups would reach a point of cycling off at the same time. We say "at the same time," but we mean this in terms of relative perception of time; it could take several years for the exit of a group, but once it started, it was an exponential process. Some of our students who remember the Lemurians were deeply affected by the exit of the last of the Lemurian groups. [QUESTION] So Ramtha was a jellyfish-like entity? [Michael Entity] No. Ramtha is a conglomeration of the channel's own higher self (Essence), her ego, and then some legitimate guidance by a cycled-off entity of Human sentience. We wish to point out that the conglomeration we describe as "Ramtha" does not diminish the value of what is taught to those who find it meaningful. It just happens that the Sage/King entity enjoys theatrics as their Medium. [QUESTION] So, they weren't going through the Soul Age Levels while on earth -- but were more like using earth in an Astral-like manner? [Michael Entity] No, they progressed in Soul Age as any other sentient species extant, but progressed in groups so that the cycling off for each was in conjunction with masses of other fragments. [QUESTION] So we did have some interaction clearly, even if they were isolated? [Michael Entity] Yes, there was a great deal of interaction between your species, but in measured and highly-structured ways. [QUESTION] oh, so none of us ever actually had lives as lemurians? [Michael Entity] Not that we know of. To switch bodies in such a way is not something that is very appealing to sentience, unless there are hundreds of years of integration and communication between the species. [QUESTION] Contrary to what Michael teaches I feel that sometimes my guides tap into my future, sometimes seemingly to a future that just happens, please comment on this phenomenon. Time is an illusion is it not? [Michael Entity] What you experience is not in contradiction to our teaching, and we understand what you describe. We refer to these as Sequences and Vectors. These are events that, when lined up and feasible, fall like dominoes in a momentum toward an end. It is not predestination, anymore than a line of dominoes are guaranteed to fall perfectly every time, but the lining up, or the Sequences and Vectors, do tend to bring about fairly predictable paths. [QUESTION] sequences?, please elaborate [Michael Entity] A Sequence is an arrangement of Agreements or Events that create a pattern toward an end result. A Vector is that "point of no return" so to speak, that is a mathematical momentum toward that end result. Time is only an "illusion" when you are not experiencing it. It is a disservice to pretend that the Physical Plane is void of the experience of Time. If you have Emotions, you experience Time. So while you, as Personality, must take your next steps in Time, your Essence does not have the same constrictions and can work to arrange probabilities in ways that are appealing to your Personality; that is, if the Personality is manifesting Essence. Even your Personality is not restricted entirely by the function of Time, as it has Imagination as a source for planning, memory, and choice. [QUESTION] Good afternoon Michael; Yesterday evening we were discussing the "close but no cigar" meetings between concurrents. I would like you to elaborate on what occurs when one of your concurrents dies...does the Essence's other concurrents "pick up" where that one interests, queries, lessons etc "leave off" this lifetime,in other words sort of an assimilation? [Michael Entity] In most cases, no. The lives of Concurrents are their own, and though Essence will absorb the experiences from all Concurrents, it does not shift the life of one onto the life of another. There would be little point to that. However, in some cases the Personality of one Concurrent becomes aware of the validity of the concept of Concurrents and that can open that Personality to exploring the life of another Concurrent in some way, either through Imagination, or through bleedthrough. [QUESTION] bleedthrough? [Michael Entity] Yes, bleedthrough; a natural exchange of energy that comes from intimacy. In other words, it is no different than the experience of feeling resonance with a past life when that life resonates to a current life. [QUESTION] a cosmology question :) - the Universe is said to be 14 billion years old. Recognizing the problem with 'time', when were the cadres/entities 'cast' out from Tao in relationship to the creation of this Universe? Before, during, or after? (I have been told my essence/soul is also 14 billion 'years' old -I am curious how this 'fits'). [Michael Entity] Cadres and Entities are cast over and over within a Universe with every return to Tao, which includes the choice of your Essence's new Role, new Entity, new Cadre, etc for every Grand Cycle. The measurement of time for that Universe and its first casting of Entities is always relative to the Planetary System of the Sentience at the time of such a question. [QUESTION] the earth is said to be just over 4 billion years old so we were cast 'last' 4 billion years ago? Where does the 14 billion 'age' come in? or was this in relationship to a prior planetary system of sentience? [Michael Entity] What we mean is that if we were answering this question for another fragment in another planetary system with a different measurement of time, we would have to answer with a very different scale. In terms of time measurement as can be understood in any practical sense, we can safely say that your (and our) current Sentience is at least 14 billion years old, "give or take" a billion or so. Keep in mind, however, that your ROLE may not be as "old" since you have returned to Tao multiple times in Grand Cycles. [QUESTION] Since there are/were 3 of us present that are from Entity 6 of Cadre 2 may I have any Biographical information that you have easy access to along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? If that question is too broad, feel free to pick and choose what you think may be helpful. [Michael Entity] It could be said that a common denominator, or theme, among Cadre 2, Entity 6 is that of SENSITIVITY. This Sensitivity can show up in different ways that range from crippling sensitivity to profound healing capabilities. This particular Entity is "touched" by life and experiences in ways that are often difficult to understand by other fragments. This particular Entity is often seen as the "open wound" of the Cadre, where the greatest traumas and extremes are drawn in by the fragments. This openness to life in such a sensitive manner can also lead to an awareness of subtleties that, when harnessed and implemented, can come across as works of "miracles" or profound transformation for those within proximity of that fragment's life. [QUESTION] Since this is a 6 numbered entity, is that reflective in its Priestly energies in any way? [Michael Entity] It is true there would be "priestly" qualities inherent in the dynamic of any Entity 6, lending it a deep Compassion or a strong Zeal. In addition to that mathematical dynamic, Entity 6 emphasizes the spectrum of experiences between the negative pole of Connection and the positive pole of Harmony. In Connection, the fragments of any Entity 6 may find themselves in positions that pivot other lives, or that they may move from one support or social circle to another throughout the life, always drawing a line of connections among fragments or groups like a "connect-the-dot" exploration. In Harmony, the fragments no longer find themselves splintered among various parts of the life, and/or fragmented by relationships to various people in the life, but find that everything plays a part in an overall Harmony. There is much more that could be said, but we feel this little bit will help add to the understanding of the dynamics of this Entity. [QUESTION] am wondering about alkaline water. I've been reading about adding alkaline drops to water or getting a water ionizer. Is this just hype? Or is it a helpful, healthful concept? Water Ionizers, btw, are very expensive. Do alkalization drops do similar things--if any? P.S. I know our channel isn't thrilled with health questions. But I trust his ability to step aside. [Michael Entity] As far as we can see, most water is already alkalized to a degree that would have benefit, if benefit is valid. We do not see that this is the case, but may often be just the opposite if the alkalizing is high. There are several populations already ingesting high levels of alkaline water on long-term bases, and we see this as having little effect in terms of improved health. We think that this would be a matter of individual diagnosis in terms of an individual's "ph" levels, and that in those cases there are balancing remedies that might include alkaline drops, or antacid remedies. We do know that "ph" balance in the blood is important, and that this is a function of the kidneys in a way that can be measured. In that regard, it would be fairly easy to have a diagnosis, if it is of concern. The consumption of various greens and vegetables as a large part of the diet can help to minimize the acidity of blood that can come with age. It is not that alkalizing of water (or diet) is not important, but that it is important only for specific individuals in the same way that any remedy would be. [QUESTION] You've discussed "templates," and in an answer to me, you said, "Once that flexible template is in place, any Entity or Cadre can "play" the role for any group or individual as a means to teach, giving rise to a multitude of variations." You said you've played a role as both Ra and the Delphi Oracle. Are you using a template or playing a role when you work through channels at this time in your teaching history? [Michael Entity] We no longer have to play roles or use templates, except through those channels who wish to speak on our behalf, instead of allowing us to speak for ourselves. We do not mind, though. In those cases, it could be said that we are, in fact, using a template, but not in the sense that we were speaking about in your quote of us from a previous exchange. Our "voice" is just as valid among those channels who speak on our behalf, when the speaking is reflective of our teaching. [QUESTION] How would you speak for yourself? What would that be like? [Michael Entity] When it is "our voice" vs the voice of the channel on our behalf, there is little discrepancy from the consistent build of our teaching, especially in a way that would identify a channel as unique to that discrepancy for any great length of time. There will always be new additions to our teaching in a way that only one or two channels deliver initially, but the valid additions propagate. This does not mean that those discrepancies are not valid as their own teaching, or that they are in conflict with our teaching, but it is one of the ways for discerning the authenticity of our "voice," if that is of interest to a student. [QUESTION] so is it just personal preference when we think something "sounds" more like you? [Michael Entity] How we "sound" is far less important than what is claimed that we are saying. We do have a kind of "checklist" for validation of our voice through a channel that any student can use for navigating the various channels, regardless of what we "sound" like. We will include this in the final transcript for this chat. This checklist would be one that does NOT reflect the validity of the information that a channel is conveying, as the information may have validity of its own regardless of its consistency or lack of consistency with our evolving teaching, but only as a means to discern the proximity and clarity of contact with us and our intentions. Navigating the validity of channels and their proximity and clarity of contact with us can be complicated; we have "channels" who actually do not channel us but who speak consistently and accurately on our behalf, and we have channels who work directly with us who distort the information to such a degree that this information only serves to distract from our teaching. The exploration of such topics as this can be "dangerous" territory for some, and it is not an exploration that can be undertaken accurately without a high level of intellectual and emotional maturity, as it can easily prompt the younger imprinting of hierarchy, competition, and conflict. When we say that it can be "dangerous territory," we are not speaking in terms of caution or concern, because with or without our suggestions for validation, the younger imprinting will find its ways into our circles of students. We were merely speaking to the concern that some may have about any process for validating the authenticity of a channel if one were to be in place. There is great fear in that regard, though our students will eventually find it to be an important, and non-threatening process, at some point when the younger imprinting is shed. In other parallels where we work with you, the process of validation is as important and as uncomplicated as validating a surgeon's claims. Without the process of validation, the door is wide open for us to work with a wide swath of students and non-students, but it minimizes much of the potential for actual learning. Without the process of validation there is also a consistent division nurtured among the various channels as certain groups form around the discrepancies that are unique to a channel, which then undermines much of the point of our teaching. Validation is vital on many levels, but only for those who choose for that to be a relevant ingredient in their process of learning and discerning. Many have not considered the possibilities beyond the current courtesies that increase such variations and gaps among the channels. We will conclude here. Good night to each of you. Goodbye. *** A BASIC CHECKLIST for validating the clarity, consistency, and presence of Michael through a person claiming to channel Michael, regardless of the "voice" being used: We will never tell you what to do. We will never predict. We will never speak to you in ways that only seek to comfort you. We do not use affectionate language as a means of socializing, or as a means to appeal to you. We will never shame you. We will never do the work of your life for you. We teach a philosophy that naturally encourages study and practice, if that philosophy is going to be valid, but it will not do the work of your life for you, or make your life easier. Only your study and implementation of the teaching can do such a thing. We refer to Past Lives as a means to increase your capacity for choice in the current life, but never as a means to simply explain away your conditions and experiences. We will never teach that your current life is a result of, or an imposition from, your Past Lives, but that your most relevant Past Lives are because of your current life choices. Our teaching is an evolving body that builds upon itself, but does not replace or displace itself. We do expand upon concepts that are often previously conveyed or interpreted as concluded, but this expansion is not a replacement or displacement, and will only add dimension that is consistent to the evolution. When we introduce a new aspect of our teaching, it propagates among our channels and does not become unique to any one channel for any great length of time. We do not make sensational, urgent, or conditional announcements. We do not do healing, or "energy work," as this is a form of interference and potential karma. We do not work with any other entity in any way as any means to communicate or convey our teaching. We come to all who ask, but this does not mean we are heard, understood, or clearly communicated. We come to all who ask, but this does not mean that we come through any channel who claims he or she is channeling us. We and our teaching cannot be misrepresented because it is either us and our teaching, or it is not; we and the teaching are either heard clearly, or not. We will always trust that you will hear what you most need or want to hear. We will never restrict our communication to only what you want to hear, and we will never impose upon you what we see as your needing to hear. We cannot access private information about any fragment. Private information in the Akashic Records is as private as the individual Personality deems it to be, until that Personality deems it otherwise. Individual Personalities will always be the authority over their own information. Overleaves are not private information. Accessing the Akashic Records is part of our study, and your questions help us in that process. You cannot ask your questions, or for Overleaves, too many times. We do not evade or avoid questions that seek to help a student in a process of validation. We do not require questionnaires, birth information, or photographs as a means to access your Overleaves; that is a tool for the channel, not for us. Our channels are never displaced by us, but only merge with us as a means of communicating for us. There will always be a percentage of consciousness of the channel contributing to even the clearest of information, accurately or inaccurately. Everything we teach extends from the premise that every fragment carries the primary tool of Choice. We will always emphasize the tool of Choice as your most empowering tool. We state that "all is choice," but this does not preclude the responsibility of learning how to choose in ways that contribute to you and your species evolution. We make the statement that "all is choice" as a fact of existence, not as a statement of permission. We are not out to save the world, have no interest in recruiting students, and do not find it necessary to alter our teachings in a way that allows for consumption by the masses. We do not expect you to take this checklist at face value, but we offer it as a means to bring to light the patterns of consistency that establish the strength of our proximity to you through a channel, keeping in mind that the lack of proximity means only a lack of proximity. It does not have any bearing on the validity, or lack of validity, of a channel's teaching or his or her interpretation of our teaching.
