    2007 Overleaves

    2007 OVERLEAVES Here is our perspective of the energy for the time period of your new year 2007 in terms of "Overleaves." Though energies shift, change, and adapt all year, there is a general energy that can be said to affect the calendar year, at least in terms of your shared reality. Our Overleaves system can be used to describe any collection of energies, ranging from the dynamics of the actual Personality to the general “mood” of a room, society, fictional character, theme of groups, or a planet’s general atmosphere of consciousness. In addition to this, when a block of time is selected, that time frame can be translated into a description of energies based on what we perceive as the momentum of events, consciousness, and choices that will POTENTIALLY contribute to that period of time. The Overleaves for a year, then, are our interpretation of those events, consciousness, and choices as we see that they are most likely to be brought to bear in your world. The more participating one is in “the world,” the more likely these energies will be of concern, though one’s inactivity does not exempt one from world or local energies, anymore than staying inside can take away the fact of a rainstorm. The rainstorm outside can have as much an effect on one inside as on one who is outside, depending on personal interpretations and experiences of that rainstorm. The very basic energy, or basic context, of a year can be described in two Overleaves: the Role and the Center. These two basic energies are those that can contribute to your year feeling "comfortable" or "challenged" during the year unfolding, depending on your own Overleaves and your method of participation in "the world." These two energies are most obvious in the first three months of a year, but their effects will remain steady throughout the year. In addition to these basic energies, the GOAL of the year will become implemented in those first three months, approximately. It can be said that ALL of the Overleaves we use to describe the year are in effect ALL year, but the particular frames of time described below are the "seasonal" emphasis of those particular Overleaf qualities. General “Seasonal” Energy emphasis: The ENTIRE YEAR is based within the energies of the ROLE and CENTERING. January through March implements and emphasizes the GOAL. April through June implements and emphasizes the MODE. July through September implements and emphasizes the ATTITUDE. October through December implements and emphasizes the CHIEF FEATURE. With all of that being explained, we would describe the highest probable energy for the year 2007 with these Overleaves: 2007 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior CENTERING: Higher Intellectual PART OF CENTER: n/a GOAL: Dominance MODE: Observation ATTITUDE: Realist CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness While we do not, and cannot, "predict", we can share with you what these energies may mean for you in the year ahead, but first, we will look at the previous year as a means to help put the current year into perspective. Last year started and ended within the context of Emotional energies, following the Higher Emotional energies of 2005. In years described as Higher in Centering, there are events that show up as fairly global in impact and shock, while in years of Lower Centering, the emphasis is usually cumulative and local. With the impact of the Indian Ocean Tsunami at the near-beginning of 2005 and Hurricane Katrina later in 2005, the year of 2006 may have seemed fairly quiet. In any year with Higher-Center emphasis, the impact is usually of a global nature, and any Emotional-oriented year tends to manifest itself literally and symbolically through the element of Water. One can see that 2005 was water-oriented in terms of global impact; however, 2006 was Emotionally-centered, yet there were fairly few water-related disasters, or disasters, in general. We would say in response to this observation that the additional Emotional year of 2006 that followed the previous two years of emotional energy (following the Emotional Centering of 2004, the Higher Emotional Centering of 2005) was actually an attempt at respite for grounding the emotions back into something bearable again. In other words, if one were to look at last year’s Centering, we described it as Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part. As there was a general, collective interest in healing emotional wounds from the past, this could only be done through the grounding provided by the addition of Moving energy. Bringing in Moving energy helped bridge the Emotions and Intellect. For instance, movies began to be released in 2006 as expressions of this grounding, depicting the most devastating disasters of the most recent years in ways that helped many come to terms with, explore, or face their feelings. This is a very simple example of the Moving part expressing itself as a form of healing the rift between Intellect and Emotion. With this undercurrent of Moving Energy, the common denominator among most accidents and disasters throughout 2006 was actually GRAVITY-related or GROUND-related. Mining disasters; collapses of buildings; dropping, or misguiding, of airplanes; ground wars; etc. were the more local, cumulative effects of 2006. In your personal world, the emotional energy of 2006 may have manifested in literal leakages, plumbing issues, small floods, and even random, emotional breakdowns that led to tears, though you may have also brought in the balance of Moving Energy through physical ailments, physical accidents, falling down, collisions, etc., anything that brought your attention to the processes of the Body in relation to your Emotions and Intellect. However it manifested for you in 2006, the point was to bring to the surface the emotions relating to the past as a means to help make room for your future. Now we will look at the basic energies that appear to be unfolding for 2007: With the context of WARRIOR being emphasized this year, order, structure, police forces, protection, loyalty, judicial systems, politics, home, and family will most likely be highlighted throughout the year. For the most part, we see a strong momentum for a major, global debate with one side emphasizing tradition and the other side emphasizing progression, in varying contexts. What has come to be passively accepted as a basic structure of society in many areas of the world will most likely find an emphasis on a complete revamping of that structure, with conflict arising between those who wish against any change (or, at least, a return to past traditions), and those who wish to support an evolution and update to accommodate the necessity of empathy in a Mature world. While this could be said to have been going on in the world for a long time, we merely point out that 2007 will find this to be a stronger emphasis than usual on settling the debate. Because this is an Ordinal Role year, the impact of this debate will most likely permeate even the most passive of homes, bringing up personal issues of structure, order, loyalty, and politics within the individual home and family. Many issues that may have been hidden, repressed, or tolerated will now find themselves brightly highlighting the home and requiring a creative solution for all to find peace. As this is a Warrior year, we also see a strong emphasis on self-help, personal development, and relationship improvements. Anything that stands in the way of loyalty within or without will most likely be brought out for examination. We also see a return to physical objects over intangible objects, such as a need to hold books and newspapers as a means for gathering knowledge, rather than just through the internet. In light of that, we have seen a new line of electronic products to be released that emphasizes this very tangibility, giving retrospective designs to more intimate electronics so as to return a sense of touch. With the Warrior energy of the year being highlighted, we can also state that this year would be, in general, a year of TOUCH, bringing a sense of importance to texture, environment, and human interactivity in ways that may have been missing for some time. The Warrior energy will also bring about a prominence of attention for those deemed to be “underdogs,” or in need of strong support. We believe this will be most apparent in the continued announcements of those who wish to make a difference in the political and social circles affecting large populations. Underdogs who would normally have no chance in politics will now have a chance to generate strong support for elections to come. On the less-comfortable side of all of this, weaponry will also be highlighted throughout 2007, with announcements revealing warring tools that might be deemed “terrifying.” Gun use, gun abuse, and gun accidents may also find a strong rise in numbers over 2007. Those who work in fields of politics, order, justice, authority, guidance, will most likely find PERSUASION to be of utmost importance, which is an emphasis on encouraging others to CHOOSE to do what is best for them, rather than push them, bully them, or scare them into doing what has been deemed as “best.” We believe a strong shift in politics and media will have communication geared toward the encouragement of intelligence of individual choice, rather than as pre-packaged concepts and perceptions expected to be consumed without question. On the more restrictive side of the Warrior energy for the year, some may express this as COERCION, which is a forcing of direction upon another, and this will most likely not be met with passivity. 2007 brings a shift toward a feeling of motivation, purpose, meaning as a result of the Warrior energy, so we suspect that this will bring up a great deal of exciting prospects for most of our students, though some of you may simply interpret this supportive energy as a “slam” against you, emphasizing your failures and distance from your intended goals. However you experience this wave of energy for the year, it will do you well to remember that how you experience this is YOUR interpretation, as the energy is neutral. You are not trapped by your interpretations. As usual, it is not uncommon for the Role of the year to also bring to the media those who have strong Overleaves or Role that is resonant to that energy. As this is a Warrior year, it will not be surprising to have a great deal of Warriors brought into the media’s light, with varying reasons, along with a higher proportion of Warriors exiting the planet over the year. In addition to this, it will not be surprising to find yourself in contact with more Warriors or in more intimate contact with Warriors in your personal life. The year ahead is centered in the HIGHER INTELLECTUAL, which is an emphasis on higher inspiration and TRUTH. As we have stated before, a year that emphasizes a higher center is a year that tends toward global impact of events, disasters, revelations, shifts, etc. This will most likely be another of those years with a startling focus on exposure, the “truth,” and deep, personal meaning behind the force of Choice, individually and collectively. Another angle of exploration regarding this energy would be through the highlighting of TELEPATHY. In this case, telepathy may be as simple as the word implies, with the paranormal capabilities of humans being showcased in some way, or it may have varying meaning, such as surprising cross-species communications and revelations. For those who wish to remain locked in tradition and familiarity (as mentioned earlier), the Higher Intellectual energy may be quite uncomfortable to process, as it will be very difficult to reconcile refusing to change after knowing “the truth.” With a strong focus on the importance of Truth, this year may bring a great deal of tears, as tears are the biological reaction to the acceptance of Truth. It may help you to remember that your seemingly unwarranted tears may actually be a higher function of embrace as the year unfolds. DOMINANCE will be the underlying theme of emphasis this year, and especially over the first few months of your year. Most fragments seem to be experiencing this as a “soft determination” for making much-needed changes in the life. We state “soft determination” because we can also see that many of you are quite exhausted, uninspired, and this determination will require some patience and time to fully find its footing. As January passes, most of you will probably find that footing and begin to sense a renewed control over your choices, your feelings, and your futures. In the world, this energy will most likely show up as prominent personalities taking very powerful and deliberate stances in the media as a means to implement some form of transformational change. Of course, there will be those who do this through genuine leadership, and those who simply stand as dictators, wishing to impose their force. Not only does this have a strong possibility of standing out in your media, but in your personal life, as well. As you open to the changes you wish to implement in your life, you will either find yourself embodying Dominance, or attracting another person to help guide you through those changes. It will be up to you to discern whether you have turned to a dictatorial version of yourself, or a dictatorial person, as a form of guidance. If you find yourself in that position, it will do you will to return yourself to a state of “soft determination,” bringing a gentleness, silence, and patience to the motivation for change. With WARRIOR, HIGHER INTELLECTUAL, and DOMINANCE being the most emphasized energy in these first few months, we would suggest two specific approaches to help you benefit from that energy: ONE: EMBRACE CHANGE. This appears to be another pivotal year in terms of directions for personal lives, societies, and countries. It is not a time of peace or rest, but a time of shifting and evolution. This energy can be experienced as turbulent, or exciting, but it is as natural and as neutral as the collective growth of your own body. It is not an imposition, but it is natural. Those who embrace change tend toward adaptability and improved maturity of intelligence and emotions, while those who refuse change, or find it to be an imposition, tend to retreat into regressive positions of intelligence and feelings. While both choices are valid, it can do wonders for the individual living within a world of change to actively participate in those changes. TWO: DO WHAT YOU WANTED TO DO. In a year that emphasizes truth, change, leadership, and inspiration, it will help your position within your life, your community, and your world to actually DO what you intended to do. Follow through. Make a plan. Set up a chart for progress. Get started. Do just that ONE thing that you’ve always put off. The fulfillment within the progress of that active participation in your life will greatly increase your sense of adaptability to change, since you will be gently leading your choices in directions you wish to create, rather than merely rolling with the shifts that may appear to be happening around you. In light of all of this energy to start the year, it may be helpful to think of CHANGE and DOING and TRUTH as ingredients of PEACE. To the extent that one, or all, can adapt, do what is wanted to be done, and evolve to embrace higher truths, is the extent to which a world has the capacity for true peace. Happy New Year. -Michael
  2. April 11, 2010 Troy Tolley, Channel Modes [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We understand the subject to be that of the Mode, which is part of our Overleaf System. We have elaborated upon this through Troy in the past, so we will do our best to expand upon that, or lend insight from other angles. We will do so in a way that should allow for each exchange to stand on their own, but add to one another. First, we will share that each of the Overleaves tend to be showcased, presented, emphasized, brought to the forefront of a Personality in different contexts. Depending on the context, a specific Overleaf is leading the Personality for that context. For instance, in SOCIAL situations, the Attitude is the most prominent Overleaf that is used for leading the Personality. In RELATIONSHIPS, it is the Mode. We realize that Social interaction may be consider variations on “relationships,” but we differentiate these by the level of intimacy that is intended or sought for exchange. In “Social” situations, we speak of the level of interaction that emphasizes “getting along” over “getting intimate.” Social situations seek commonalities in viewpoints, or challenges to viewpoints. In Social situations the commonality or challenge is primarily in the realm of philosophies, expression, and information exchange. In “relationships” the commonality or challenge is primarily in the realm of intimacy, resonance, meaning, emotions. The Attitude has a voice. The Mode is mute. The Mode can only “feel,” intuit, “know,” perceive, etc. The Mode bypasses logic in its support or challenge to intimacy. When in groups beyond 2, it is likely that the Attitude is at the forefront for interaction. But even within a group, if conversation or exchange moves to a more ordinal exchange, a more intimate exchange, then the Mode kicks in, so to speak. It is not necessarily the number within the group that is the determining factor, but how one is focusing upon those within the group. If there is a sense of each individual, then the Mode is probably emphasized, but if the group acts as its own entity, and recognition of individuals is rather fleeting, it is most likely the Attitude interacting. The Mode requires a Connection at the very least, and full-blown Resonance at its best. In fact, it could be said that those terms may be used as Negative and Positive poles for the Term “Mode.” Connection would be an anticipated, speculated commonality, while Resonance would be valid, mutual recognition of commonalities. For the most part, the difference between Connection and Resonance is the difference in the degree of space and time involved. “We have a Connection” is often the anticipated, speculated (and hopeful) initiation of a relationship, whereas Resonance is validated from experience and exploration, which requires space (as in, physical interaction) and time (as in, digestion of experiences). Keeping in mind that one can RELATE to anything from an object to an intention to an animal to a person to a soul and all the way to Tao, it will be helpful to understand the spectrum between Connection and Resonance. We spoke of the comparison of the Attitude and Mode only as a means to exemplify the differences, but for no other reason. In our system, the Mode not only describes how one relates to others, but within the Personality it describes how one relates to the motivation for the lifetime as described by the Goal. Understanding your Mode can help you grasp the challenges or the commonalities that you may feel about your Goal for the lifetime. What we will do is speak briefly about each Mode in terms of how it works within the Personality, as opposed to how each works in relationships with other fragments, which we have already covered in a previous exchange. More specifically, we will speak about how each Mode relates to the Goal in terms of commonality and challenge. RESERVE MODE If one has Reserve Mode, this would most likely show up as one who must have the whole picture, the history, the point, and see that there is Meaning to the pursuit of the Goal. When it is seen that there is Meaning, then the support for the Goal tends to be incremental and specific, accumulating a pattern of Meaning. When Meaning cannot be anticipated or seen as possible, then the Goal tends to fall into the negative pole, and internal struggles begin. PASSION MODE If one has Passion Mode, this would most likely show up as one who feels he or she is already inside the whole picture, is creating history, is creating the point, and seeks to create Meaning from the pursuit of the Goal. When Passion Mode can create Meaning from experience, there is full support for the Goal with no inhibition and the Goal acts as food for the soul. When Passion Mode loses its capacity for creating Meaning, then the Goal falls into its negative poles and experience begins to be overwhelming, empty, and numbing. It could also be said that if Reserve Mode sees others in itself, it can experience Meaning; if Passion can see itself in others, it can create Meaning. CAUTION MODE If one has Caution Mode, this would most likely show up as one who REVEALS oneself at a personal pace, and must clarify Intention behind the pursuit of the Goal. When Intention is clarified behind the pursuit of the Goal, then support for the Goal tends to be a process of revelation, building upon each revelation. When Intention is lost or lacking in clarity, the Goal can tend to fall into the negative pole, and the personality recoils. POWER MODE If one has Power Mode, this would most likely show up as one who DISPLAYS oneself as one is at the moment, and must PROVE Intentions behind the pursuit of the Goal. When Intention is proven behind the pursuit of the Goal, then the support for the Goal tends to be a process of Sharing, building upon the sense of presence that sharing brings with the pursuit of the Goal. If Intention cannot be proven, the Goal can fall into the negative poles and the Personality can begin to feel diminished, invisible, and insignificant. PERSEVERANCE MODE If one has Perseverance Mode, this would most likely show up as one who seeks CONSISTENCY in the pursuit of the Goal, with completion of experiences an important element of that Consistency. When Consistency cannot be found, the Goal can fall into the negative pole, and the Personality can begin to resist all new experiences. When Consistency is found, the support for the Goal tends to be in terms of submersion and completion. AGGRESSION MODE If one has Aggression Mode, this would most likely show up as one who creates Consistency as part of the pursuit of the Goal, with management of experiences being an important element to that process of creating Consistency. If Consistency can be created, then support for the Goal tends to be in terms of Managing and Organizing experiences as a form of navigation. If Consistency is found to be incapable of being created, then the Goal can fall into the negative pole and the personality can begin to impose false consistency upon experiences, plowing forward as a means to navigate. OBSERVATION MODE If one has Observation Mode, this would most likely exemplify the very core of the Mode in terms of Connection and Resonance, and in most cases would include some variation and combination of what we have described for the other Modes. In other words, Observation Mode seeks or creates Consistency, Meaning, and clarifies or proves Intentions as related to the pursuit of the Goal. The preferred emphasis of support for the Goal is usually revealed if there is a habitual Mode to which the Observation “slides.” For those in Observation, it would most likely be true that there is an obvious preference of emphasis in terms of MEANING, CONSISTENCY, or INTENTION. MEANING might be defined as the questioning of how this helps one to BE. CONSISTENCY might be defined as the questioning of how this helps one to DO. INTENTION might be defined as the questioning of how this helps one to HAVE. When Observation is not “sliding,” it could be said that it is the questioning of how this helps one to SEE. All of this can be combined into a kind of clever means for one to understand one's Personality dynamic in terms of the relationship between the Mode and Goal. For instance, Observation Mode and Goal of Acceptance might be the questioning of how Acceptance helps one to SEE. If Observation slides to Perseverance, it might be the questioning of how seeking Consistency helps one to See Acceptance. If one is in Passion Mode and with a Goal of Growth, it might be the questioning of how Growth helps one to BE, or the questioning of how Being oneself helps one to Grow. If one is in Power Mode with the Goal of Flow, it might be described as the questioning of how proving one’s Intentions helps one to HAVE peace, freedom, etc., or the questioning of how one’s pursuit of freedom, peace, etc., helps one to share one’s presence. And so on. We must conclude here today. We will open the queue now to the first 5 questions and our responses to these will be included in the final transcript. You may input your question as soon as you have entered the queue if you are one of the first five to respond. [Upst8] so, to be clear then…..if one was in Dominance, it might be the questioning of how Perseverance helps one to DO, or the questioning of how Doing helps one to lead? [MEntity] We can respond to that question here: yes, that is one way of putting the information together. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye. Note: It does not appear that responses to additional questions were ever appended to this transcript.
  3. OMW - Jul 2, 2011 - Healing Relationships Channel: Troy Tolley [CocteauBoy announces] so this will have three parts: Introduction/Discussion/Application Michael will talk about the topic; then the floor will open for general questions about the topic; then the focus will move into exercises... So while I bring in Michael, write down (privately) up to three relationships that you feel are in need of healing, so that as Michael walks through all of this info, you have specific examples to work with. Let's get started! Have a great session! [Martha] Can they be dead? [CocteauBoy] (yeah) [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We suggest taking a cleared moment right now for taking a few deep gentle breaths, allowing your focus to be present with your body, while inviting resonance among all of you, and with us, however that works for you in your imagination. And we will begin on the subject of "healing relationships" now. First, we will define "Relating" as "discovering and/or creating common ground." We will define "relationship" as "an attraction or repulsion that binds or bonds one to another." This means that even in hatred, there is a relationship, and the repulsion is still rooted in a common ground. Often in hatred, the common ground is feared, or is not understood, and this gives rise to the hatred or repulsion. Love and Hate are not opposites; they are both bound in Intimacy. Hate is as intimate as Love, when they are legitimate. Apathy is the "opposite" of both. It could be said, then, that the positive pole of Relationship is Attraction, and the negative pole is Repulsion. Another way to describe it may be Resonance and Dissonance. Dissonance and Repulsion are merely different ways of describing a state of UNRESOLVE. The lack of resolve is generated by the natural tendency for sentience to generate common ground, yet not being able to understand what that is, or why that is. Some examples: one who is homophobic tends to relate far more closely to the sexuality that is feared or hated than the phobic one wishes to accept. Rejecting homosexuals, then, is a way of tangibly distancing oneself from the common ground of sexuality. Another who is homophobic may not be homosexual, himself, but simply have been taught to fear or simply does not understand this version of a common ground of sexuality. All phobias, then, are Relationships, in themselves, and in the pole of Dissonance, or unresolved common ground. An aside: Allergies, as well, fall into the category of Relationships, and always represent some form of Denial, or Dissonance. There are Relationships of Attraction and Dissonance, and all relationships will fall somewhere within that spectrum. In other words, a Relationship of Love may be Dissonant and not be Attractive, and a Relationship of Hate may be extremely Attractive. Fearing or Not Understanding your Common Ground does not preclude Love or Intimacy. Wounded Relationships are those relationships that have damaged, lost, or rejected the Common Ground that had previously been accepted. Relationships of Hate, then, are not necessarily Wounded, and Relationships of Love are not necessarily Healed. If Attraction is the acceptance and awareness of a common ground, and Dissonance is the unresolve of the fear or misunderstanding of the common ground, then ALL Relationships by definition have a Common Ground, whether the extremes of Love and Hate are involved, or not. The drama, hatred, love, passion, kindness, fighting, arguing, estrangement, romance, etc., are not indications of Wounding, then. They are simply part of the spectrum of Relationships. Wounding is ONLY when the Common Ground is lost, rejected, or damaged. That being said, the more unpleasant spectrum of feelings involved in a relationship can TEND to be associated with Wounding, but this is a tendency, not a rule or equation. In other words, just because you are estranged, or fighting, or caught up in drama, does not automatically mean there is Wounding. However, when there is Wounding, it can often result in estrangement, fighting, and drama. We share all of this so that you understand that your Relationships are as unique and as beautiful as each individual, and cannot be so simply dismissed as Wounded, just because you are unhappy or angry, etc. In fact, some relationships thrive on the Common Ground of Unhappiness or Anger. And they are far from Wounded. Wounded Relationships are usually marked by complete "reset" of the Relationship. A withdrawal from all Common Ground. The Healing comes through the efforts to re-establish, re-discover, and rebuild Common Ground. For Relationships that no longer have the other party involved, whether because of death or distance or complete rejection, Common Ground can still be re-established, re-discovered, and rebuilt. [Brian_W] how? [MEntity] Relationships are a two-way street, so to speak, but Healing does not require both parties. The short answer to how to Heal a Wounded Relationship is to re-establish, re-discover, and/or rebuild the Common Ground. When the other party is not available, it is only a matter of first identifying the most-obvious Common Ground between you. In cases where the person is distant, then Distance can actually be the starting point for Common Ground. In cases where the person has fully rejected all communication, then Hurt can be your Common Ground. In cases where the person is no longer incarnated, your Past can be your Common Ground. Identifying the very thing "between" you as your starting point of Common Ground can often diffuse that very thing. As soon as a Common Ground has been identified and accepted, Healing automatically begins. Healing a Relationship does not necessarily equate it being as you fantasize it, remember it, wish it to be. Healing a Relationship is not an investment, but a gift, for all involved. By identifying and accepting your Hurt or Distance or Past as your Common Ground, one can often free a great deal of energy that can then bring clarity, insight, patience, compassion, peace, and then those can potentially begin to be included as Common Grounds. [Brian_W] Quick question -- can distance include both temporal and / or spacial? [MEntity] Yes. All of what we have shared so far has been the basics of Relationships and Healing, and just understanding these basics can bring some relief and true Healing to some of your most difficult relationships, but also bring understanding and lightness to those relationships that are not wounded, but are simply challenging. Some of your most annoying, challenging, dramatic, and inconvenient Relationships are not so because of Wounding, but because they are simply those things. Understanding this can help you to move to address the challenges directly, instead of being concerned that there is something to "fix." Relationships come in a combination of these elements (or sets): Sexual/Physical, Emotional, Intellectual. Brief, Short-term, and Long-term. Sensual, Shallow, and Deep. All Relationships would be, at least, a combination of one element from each of these. For instance, a Relationship may be Sexual, Short-term, and Deep. Or Emotional, Brief, and Shallow. Sensual would be those relationships that share in feeling good, sharing sensations, stimulation of some sort, including pleasure. Shallow would be those relationships that require little investment, and are not concerned greatly with reward or payoff. Deep would be those relationships that encourage the transformation of fear, or Chief Features. The first set of Elements correspond to the category of Physical, and basically describe the primary means of Interaction. The second set of Elements corresponds to the category of Emotional, and basically describe the interpretation and use of Time or Inspiration. The third set of Elements correspond to the Intellect, and describe the degree of Presence, or Expression. While none of these are necessarily sequential, and can be "mixed and matched" in any number of ways, they do tend to build upon each other in the order we described. For instance, Sensual usually leads to Shallow, and Shallow leads to Deep. Physical usually leads to Emotional leads to Intellectual, etc. By the way, we do not use the term "shallow" here in any negative sense, but only in the sense of depth of investment within and between. Using the sequential tendency, it is also true of all relationships that as they move from one end of the Elements to the other, they will tend to lose emphasis on the previous. So the relationship that is Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep will include, but not necessarily emphasize Physical, Brief, and Sensual. Because this is not understood, many Long-term Mated relationships fail, because they are distracted by the social emphasis on Sensual and Sexual/Physical. The Older the soul, the more likely the Relationships will tend toward the Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep. This is true, even within closed systems, such as Aging. The longer one is in the Body, the more the Relationship with it tends toward Intellectual, Long-term, and Deep. The Whole Relationship, or the Healthy Relationship, is one that includes SPIRIT, or MIND, depending upon one's terminology, the Assimilative or Neutral Element. By "Spirit" we mean that there is an awareness of the Whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. Regardless of any combination, Spirit can be involved. The easiest way to understand "spirit," in this case, is to understand it as that part of you who knows the Relationship is serving you in some way that is meaningful, or can be meaningful. Regardless of the state of the Relationship. We share these various Elements so that you might understand the nature of your Relationship, as it began, where it is, and what you may have expected of it, and that understanding can free you to bring healing, if necessary. The subject of Relationships is as vast as any other subject we can discuss with you, but we will share one more area of consideration as it relates to Healing, before taking questions. Relationships are formed through the MODE, in terms of Overleaves. Depending upon one's Mode, Relationships will TEND to form in certain ways, and TEND to Heal in certain ways. To be brief for the sake of our limited time here, we will share those details for each Mode. RESERVE MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of History; tends to "get to know" others through their Centering; and tends to require dealing with the past as part any relationship healing process. CAUTION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Motives/Motivations; tends to bond/bind through the GOAL; and requires a return to SAFETY as part of any relationship healing process. PERSEVERANCE MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Appearances or Behavior; tends to bond/bind with another through Body Type; requires tangible action as a means for healing any relationship. OBSERVATION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Perspective; tends to Bond/Bind through the Mode; requires feeling UNDERSTOOD as a means for healing a Relationship. POWER MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Confidence; tends to bond/bind with another through the Attitude; and requires HONESTY as a means for healing a relationship. PASSION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of Imagination; tends to bond/bind with others through Soul Age; and requires the experience of BEING SEEN as part of any healing of a Relationship. AGGRESSION MODE: tends to be attracted to the Common Ground of The LIFE (as a whole); tends to bond/bind with another's Role; and requires recovering INTEGRITY as a means for healing a Relationship. We share these correlations so that you can understand how you may find your angle on building Relationships, and what you might require for healing, as well as others' angle on building Relationships, and what they might require for healing. These attractions, bondings, and requirements for healing are not exclusive to each Mode, but are tendencies that can be helpful as a starting place for healing. As this is our first time communicating some of this through Troy in this way, we know that some elaboration and clarification may be necessary over time, but this is a good start. We will now take questions on the subject. [Geraldine] Please clarify why phobias and allergies are considered relationships [MEntity] Relationships here are defined by "attraction/resonance or repulsion/dissonance of a common ground that binds or bonds one to another." Phobias and allergies are relationships of repulsion/dissonance of a common ground. Phobias and Allergies are basically the differences between Conscious and Subconscious Repulsion/Dissonance. Phobias tend to be conscious dissonance and repulsions, whereas Allergies tend to be subconscious dissonance and repulsions. [Geraldine] but how are they relationships? they aren't people [MEntity] Phobias and Allergies, both, tend to be symbolic and tend to be representative of the Relationship between "you" and "yourself." That could be between "you" and your emotions, your body, your beliefs, your soul, etc. Your sexuality, your past, etc. [Geraldine] ok -- the battleground of self [MEntity] Whether it is the concept of homosexuality, or the effects of pollen, the Common Ground is "you," and how you relate to you. We can elaborate on these as a topic another time, including delineating the various allergies and what they may represent. [Maureen] In an earlier private session with you, we spoke of my ‘revulsion’ for my mother at times and you said – in short – that I would feel the revulsion of those last issues that remain with my Essence – coming to terms with my Essence's "past," and that we are most often repulsed by reflections more than by perceptions. Then you said: “Deciding how to handle such behaviour would give great insight into where you are within yourself/Essence in terms of resolving those remaining conflicts.” Do you have any suggestions for how I (or one) might specifically go about resolving these conflicts from “within”, from the “past”? [MEntity] By responding to your question, we skip ahead to the Application part of our exchange with you: First: determine if there actual wounding, which is defined by your having once shared an identified and accepted common ground; Second: ask if that shared and identified common ground has been lost, damaged, or rejected; Third: identify any common ground you may have, even if it is not one you prefer; Fourth: take responsibility for your part of the Dissonance/Repulsion by understanding what it is, based on your Mode. In your case, with Observation Mode, it may be that you are repulsed by lacking shared perceptions, and not feeling understood; [Maureen] I'm more revulsed by my mother not understanding her own behavior -- and then "owning it" - it is less (now) about her understanding me. [MEntity] By "take responsibility" we mean that you can accept that these are things that are important to you, not only in terms of how they are provided for you, but by others, for themselves. The "reflection" here is that you are just as hard on yourself, as on your mother, in your expectations, standards, and efforts to self-monitor and control yourself. The Dissonance or unresolve here is that you dislike this part of you as much as you need it, and when you see someone else disregard such a priority for you, it is repulsive. This is not to say that these expectations, standards, and efforts are "wrong," but that they are your own. In the end, you are resentful and hurt for having to become your own parent. [Maureen] That hit a nerve... [MEntity] The Common Ground between the two of you is that you are both hurting, you are both children, with the difference between you being that you feel you had to take up the slack for your mother not doing the work of her own healing or maturing. You want some recognition for what you have had to do to "grow up" before you wanted to, or should have to, grow up. Your mother epitomizes the pattern you have with others in your life, as well, in terms of your having to take the "adult" role, even as you would prefer not to. We speak to this, based on our interpretation of records here, but we may be incorrect. [Maureen] it sounds right - thanks! [MEntity] The difference between your mother and others is that most of the other relationships were chosen, while you are "stuck" with your mother. Once one can take responsibility for what it is at the heart of the Dissonance/Repulsion, then one can go to the Fifth step of taking responsibility for what tends to be required for Healing. As this relates to the Mode. For your example, Observation tends to require feeling understood, or that another person understands. Either asking for what you require, or providing it yourself, can free the relationship to move toward Healing. The Sixth step would be in understanding what might be required of the other individual for Healing. In your case, your mother requires the same as you. She needs to feel understood as much as you need to feel, and because this is a Mode that "slides," each you may move to other requirements. In your case, you slide to Passion/Reserve, which means that you need the Past to be dealt with, and/or to Be Seen. And your mother, sliding to Power, requires Honesty, which means that she may have to say what she feels, even if it is not true to you, and she will benefit from your being Honest, and saying what is true for you, even if not immediately true for her. It is the Honesty that is required, though, if Healing is to be. The Seventh step then would be in recognizing or allowing SPIRIT to return, which basically means remembering or creating a higher meaning and value of the relationship that transcends even the challenges and joys. We will return to these steps in a moment. First, we will respond to the other questions. [Martha] Can healing of a relationship spread to other parallels where the relationship is also wounded? [MEntity] No. Technically, no. The work of one parallel will not impact the state of another, but the work of one parallel can draw toward a merge with another parallel that is similar in state due to the work of healing. For example: one parallel may be in no need of healing, while another is. The one that requires healing can eventually merge with the other parallel, if healing is accomplished. [Brian_W] This might tie into Maureen's question, as I definitely see how this applies to healing relationships with others, but in general, what would be the common ground with ourselves? [MEntity] Your idea of "you," your heart, your feelings, your identity, your desires, your cravings, your body, your health, your self-image, etc. Anything that could be described as "yours" would be the common ground. For example, the homophobe would be in a dissonant relationship with his sexuality through the symbolic concept of homosexuality and the homosexuals who exemplify it. [ClaireC] Can you give me some insight as to what the "difference between Conscious and Subconscious Repulsion/Dissonance" is behind my sister's chronic, severe allergies? [MEntity] Keep in mind that there is a vast difference between intolerances and allergies, and chronic, severe intolerances are not indicative of anything but genetics, which may or may not have been intentional as part of the design of the Body. Allergies trigger an immune system reaction, whereas intolerances do not. We would have to look at the details of these allergies to determine the dissonance/denial behind them, and at this point we cannot. [ClaireC] Hers are environmental allergies, it seems. [MEntity] If the allergies are legitimate, and environmentally-related, then this often reflects the dissonance between you and "your world." This often comes from a denial of one's power, or right to be, in the world. When we say "environmentally-related," we mean that it is an immune reaction to several threats that are common in the average person's environment, and usually includes an array. If it is specifically pollen, or dander, for instance, then the dissonance may be different. [ClaireC] Definitely allergic to both pollen and dander. [MEntity] In terms of applying this information, we suggest looking at one of your suggested three relationships that may require healing, and walk through the initial list of details for Relationships, and see how that relationship might be interpreted and understood differently. And then use the steps outlined with Maureen for determining if and how a relationship may need healing. [ClaireC] Yes, that was very helpful information that can be applied to all relationships. [MEntity] We are fading, however, and this channel must stop for now. Troy can continue work with the application aspect in your group forum.

    Michael Speaks: March 2005

    March 6, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS – Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We understand the floor is open to questions and we will do our best to respond to your questions as directly and clearly as possible. [upstaate] There is a nexus period, at the end of this month-Mar 23/24-can you expound on the energy flowing for this nexus. The theme was given, thru another channel, to be adventure. Thank You. [Michael_Entity] The beginning of your year has had the emphasis on the energies that could be described in terms of Role, Centering, and Goal. As with the first three months of any year, the Goal is primarily emphasized and throughout the year the rest of the Overleaves used to describe the energy will eventually be emphasized during their own “seasons.” As this year is emphasizing Server energy and a Higher Emotional Centering as the overall context, this means that each of you will have the opportunity to grasp the higher perception of your own life and of those around you. These first few months have introduced the emphasis of ACCEPTANCE (the collective Goal for the year) within the context of higher perception and service/nurturing. In other words, each of you have probably had to deal with AT LEAST one element, incident, or experience that has put you in a position to consider ACCEPTANCE of that element, incident, or experience while also being able to draw a great amount of self-nurturing during the process. This Acceptance will only come through your ability to see the higher meaning behind the event and through your ability to respond to the experience with your inner resources of nurturing. Many difficult experiences have peppered the beginning of this year because this time frame has had the energetic support “in the air” for adapting to these events and experiences. Deaths, Major Changes, Release, Reunions, News (“good” and “bad”), etc. have been condensed into these first 3 months because the general energy is able to be used as a way to accelerate the healing, introduction, change, etc. All of that being said; the Nexus that is formulating around the 23rd – 25th is about the release of tension from these first three months. Some of our channels may refer to that release as ADVENTURE because there is an opportunity here to pull in the experiences, tools, and people that would allow for a great deal of FUN. That time frame would also introduce the energy of the MODE for this year, which is Observation, so many of you will find that your experience of Adventure will be utilized through WATCHING something. We remind you that ADVENTURE has its own spectrum through which fragments can extract the experience. The Positive Pole being PRESENCE and the Negative Pole being DRAMA; the range of Adventure can be from Destruction to Enlightenment. [upstaate] and it is our choice how we will perceive that? [Michael_Entity] As far as we can see, most of you are quite ready for at least a mid-range to high-range of Adventurous experience, meaning you will most likely experience anything thing from: Sensory Excitement, such as great sex, release, recreation, travel; Stimulation of Mind, such as learning something quite surprising and new; Essence Contact, such as feeling an alignment and peace within yourself; and as we said, Enlightenment, or put another way, feeling TOTALLY PRESENT. So it would be beneficial for many of you to mark your calendars and use that Nexus to emphasize your ability to choose a direction toward what might be FUN, rewarding, playful and most importantly bringing you into a sense of being fully present and alive. [faldec] My father a 6th young priest has stated he has to have wrist watches with a magnetically shielded back on them or they’ll stop working. What relationship exists between essence and having an energetic effect on the surroundings? TY [Michael_Entity] None; or very little. The effect on the functionality of machinery on the body is purely a physical phenomenon and is usually not permanent. It is the result of the physical body/Personality being out of synch with its environment. The only relationship between Essence and the phenomenon is in that there does appear to be a fairly consistent connection between Frequency and/or Role. Higher Frequency fragments and/or Expressive/Inspiration Roles can tend to have this effect on the Personality/Body and its ability to synchronize with its environment. More specifically though is in the way the Personality UTILIZES the energy that is the Essence. Those who tend to deflect inner guidance can be most susceptible to energetic fluctuations and distortions of the body matrix. In other words, and at its most distilled explanation, this phenomenon happens most to those who have not learned to be accountable for their impact on their world, lacking the ability to manage even the closest surfaces of their boundaries (skin). [BradburySE] There was a story in the news this week, about 68 dolphins who beached themselves in the Florida Keys. Was this another case of a “mass suicide” meant to communicate with the humans, or was it, as the Navy supposes that underwater sonar interfered with their communication and they became disoriented? [Michael_Entity] These pods appear to have been involved with a cult leader who had gained the trust of the participants, promising them that another dimension of existence was just beyond the boundaries of their own familiar world. Some pods of Cetaceans have surrendered to the teachings of some corrupt or misguided leaders as the oceans continue to become threatened to a degree. In the same way that your own Jim Jones or Heaven’s Gate leaders convinced (or forced) small masses to accept suicide as a doorway, so too do the Cetaceans have that susceptibility. [BradburySE] It never occurred to me that other species could be as stupid as humans, but I suppose it is their right. [Michael_Entity] It is not a matter of stupidity. That is a relative judgment. It is a matter of fulfilling monads and karma. [faldec] if humans do it, then cetaceans will too…after all it only choice [Annsge] I think we like to think of Cetaceans as wiser, but they’re evolving just as we are. [Michael_Entity] The irony is in the fact that the leader was a highly telepathic sentient who had been receiving input from the psyches of human leaders who teach what is known as Christianity. It appears this misguided leader taught that there was a way to “save the world” by becoming “Angels;” a term no other Cetacean has ever taught. [Annsge] What was his/her role, soul age? [upstaate] could it be a pod that is not familiar with that area and its people? [Michael_Entity] We are not sure we understand your question, Lori. [upstaate] I ask because there are people who do dolphin cruises that have become quite familiar with the pods in that area and have named some of the more frequent pods that stay around in that area. [Michael_Entity] We understand now. The Pods were local and some of the teachings were gained from the telepathic links to tourists with distorted religious beliefs and apocalyptic visions of the world. The leader appears to be a Mature King. The average soul age of Cetaceans is the same as your own species (and incidentally, the universe): 1st Level Mature [upstaate] oh, how sad then for the locals who have come to love these creatures. [Tibtyc] Good evening. If I understand the concept of 4th internal Monad (and my life) correctly, I did mine twelve years ago. Or at least started it. That happened rather dramatically. Now my life has come to a halt, like the end of a road. Could this be my 5th monad? The Monads remind me of the acts in an opera, or the movements in a symphony. How to differentiate between 4th and 5th internal Monad, or Monads generally? That is my question. [Michael_Entity] The 4th Internal Monad has an emphasis on REGAINING INNOCENCE, or put another way, Growing Into Your Own Idea of YOU. The 5th Internal Monad has an emphasis on RECREATING YOUR LIFE, or put another way, HAVING FUN. Your life has come to a halt simply for the sake of your “catching your breath.” There are 7 stages to every cycle of growth whether described in terms of a Monad or in terms of a relationship; 3 Exalted stages, 3 Ordinal stages, and 1 Pivotal/Neutral point. The Pivotal/Assimilative/Neutral Point is a point that can be called upon at ANY TIME during the process of the other 6 stages. This allows the Personality to gain its footing after a particularly difficult stage, if necessary. It is also the point in which you finalize a cycle so as to gain the benefits of the whole process you just completed. Some would call this point THE VOID. We agree with that phrase. [Tibtyc] Is the 4th stage like catching your breath? I mean the Neutral point. [Michael_Entity] What you are describing as a “halt” is more like a moment or period of time much like having your foot between two rungs on a ladder; except that you have forgotten that there is movement. With your emphasis on the suspension between steps, you may feel you are at a halt or even terribly ungrounded or non-directional. But we assure you that you are never at a halt. [Tibtyc] Actually the “halt” only refers to outer aspects. And I keep thinking of the do-re-mi system, the octave [Michael_Entity] The 4th stage within either of the Monads would be MANIFESTATION, or the stage of tangibility. We will include with Troy’s transcription the 7 stages for the 4th and 5th Internal Monads for your further exploration. [slacnj] Does Michael have any students who are dolphins? [Michael_Entity] No, we do not. We restrict ourselves to the teachings that are applicable to the human condition, though we do have Cetacean “friends,” if you will. [slacnj] I thought you had a student on another planet, Soleal, so I was wondering. [Michael_Entity] The identity described as Soleal is a distorted interpretation during and previous to our initial contact with our current students. [Annsge] Is there more in this “distorted perception”? [Transcript ended here] Here are links to articles about the 7 Stages of the 4th and 5th Internal Monads: 7 Stages of the 4th Internal Monad 7 Stages of the 5th Internal Monad

    Michael Speaks: May 2007

    May 6, 2007 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with a few comments about the “energy report” for the month of May and what those weeks ahead may entail for most of you. As some of you already know, you are in an arc of emphasis highlighting the energy of the MODE, which comes into emphasis in the months of April through June. We have described this year’s Mode as being OBSERVATION; therefore, emphasis will seem to be themed in what that description suggests. As the Mode describes how one RELATES, it could be said that the emphasis at this time is in observing how one relates to one’s goals, one another, within oneself, etc. We have seen a great surge of self-awareness and aliveness move through our students since April has begun, and this energy is related to this use of Observation as a powerful tool of Clarity, rather than as a form of division in Surveillance. That is not to say that some of you will not feel the sense of division from that which you observe, so if you find you feel disconnected from those things that would otherwise bring to you a sense of life, it may be that you have moved into more of a self-protective process of observation until you feel “safe” to touch again. This is natural. For the first few weeks of this arc of energy, the emphasis appeared to us to have had an emphasis on OWNING your part of the equation of relationships. Furthermore, it was a process of owning with conviction and commitment that which you were discovering to be who you are NOW, in relation to yourself and your choices. We now find that the emphasis may be shifting into an exploration of MEANING and TRUTH within your relationships. Moving away from the HELL YEAH! of April as your exclamation of commitment and conviction, you may now be moving into more of a WHAT THE HELL??? scenario of exploration. By this phrase we mean it in two ways: the playful tossing up of the hands to go forth with what may not “make sense” at the moment, and in meaning the more perplexed confusion that comes from the contradiction between what you thought was true vs what has come to be known as true. This spectrum within WHAT THE HELL??? comes from the exploration of Meaning and Truth within whatever is the focus for your RELATING during the month of May and possibly into June. Many of you search for meaning and truth within this life, in general, and this gets played out in the microcosmic level, if you will, within your relationships. However, as your soul matures, so does your realizations regarding Meaning and Truth. And as with the realization that will one day be found by all of you about life, the same will be found in regard to your relationships at some point: THERE IS NO MEANING TO BE FOUND. This threshold of realization can be one of the most terrifying crossroads for any Essence and particularly for the Personality within a lifetime that finally grasps this Universal Truth. MEANING DOES NOT EXIST AS SOMETHING TO BE FOUND. MEANING IS SOMETHING THAT ONE MUST CREATE. Note that we have not said that there is NO meaning, simply that it cannot be FOUND; it must be CREATED. Only insofar as you are participating in the creation of meaning in your life and in your relationships will you experience the discovery. Many of you tend to find that your relationships must come with a built-in significance that is unveiled and discovered as one assumes past lives are involved, Essence Contact, Cadre and Entity resonance, or Agreements, but this is simply not the case. In every moment one has to create meaning between who you are and to that which you are relating. Beyond that, everything else is simply information, static facts. The profound resonance one may find with another is NOT the meaning that will be the foundation of the relationship. That attraction is only the memory of other meanings, other facts, and the initiator of contact, but it is NOT the meaning. This holds true for those relationships that are not pleasant, as well, or that are anticipated with dread. The meaning you “find” within those instances are as created by you as any of your most profound joys between you and another. The longer you wait for meaning to be revealed to you, the longer you will remain asleep and in the negative poles of your Overleaves. We call this “meaninglessness” of life a Universal Truth because that is what it is, and it is True, with or without your approval. However, as with any Universal Truth, it is not a truth that can be told to you, or given to you, and then made true for you; it must be sensed, searched for, evolved, and then comprehended. By this we mean that you must eventually feel you have had the proof you need for this truth to be a Truth. For most of you, we believe you have found the proof of meaninglessness in many of your daily activities and long-term goals, as well as within your most beloved relationships and repulsive enemies. You SENSE this meaninglessness as a Truth because part of you is beginning to suspect that meaning is not inherent, it is created. It is yours. You have seen the proof of this in your fluctuating feelings and commitments to those things to which you relate. One day you may feel inspired and in awe of the one beside you in bed, and the next day you may feel repulsed and agitated with a sense that feels overwhelming to ponder. //ADDITIONAL INFORMATION (I was fascinated by this as I read it and asked Michael for more information): It should be noted that there are 3 Arcs of Meaning to be created within a life and within relationships. A FOUNDATIONAL ARC exists as the primary meaning across which all effort ranging from basic nurturing to ultimate agape within that relationship or life is motivated. The Foundational Arc is the arc to which one must always remain close as the shorter arcs fluctuate. The Foundational Arc is what remains even when the life is completed or a relationship appears to have ended. If one were to think of the Foundational Arc as the full potential meaning that one creates for the life or relationship, it would not be amiss. Within the Foundational Arc is the CONTEXTUAL ARC, which gives variation of meaning within the larger arc, relative to specific experiences for the day, month, year, etc. The Contextual Arc can sometimes seem to conflict with the Foundational Arc, but understanding the meaning you have created within these specific experiences can help you to understand who you are, more than it is to be used to determine the fate of a relationship or life. Thinking of the Foundational Arc as the rainbow of potential within the life or relationship, then the Contextual Arcs are the colors through which that Foundation is explored. Within the Contextual Arcs are the MOOD ARCS, which give clever expression to the flow of one's overall tone of intellectual, emotional, physical states at any given time, which is much like the HUE for the COLOR that is the current Contextual Arc. Mood Arcs are often THE meaning that one is most aware of and can often destroy the meaning that was created as a foundation. To know of your Mood Arcs can save your life or relationship. Foundational Arcs are THE MEANING I CREATE AS POTENTIAL FOR THIS LIFE OR RELATIONSHIP. Contextual Arcs are THE MEANING I CREATE FROM THE EXPERIENCES I AM HAVING WITHIN THIS LIFE OR RELATIONSHIP. Mood Arcs are THE MEANING I CREATE ABOUT MYSELF IN RELATION TO THE EXPERIENCES I AM HAVING RIGHT NOW. // end additional information It is over the month of May and June that you may see more of this proof of meaninglessness that then, ironically, opens your entire world to a new level of absolute meaning. The meaning you create within your life and within your relationships is the direct expression of your consciousness and Essence at any given time. In other words, the meaning you create is the path for your soul to enter into the world around and beyond you and to bring back the experiences to help support in that meaning. So as you struggle with the meaning you see and feel around you, you may find the WHAT THE HELL??? phrase to be of use to you. This will allow you the levity to create the meaning you feel is relevant to you in the moment, or to allow room for the shifts in meaning that do tend to happen as you shift in consciousness and Essence Manifestation. We will now open the floor to any questions. [H2OSprtlvr] Are you able to tell us what is it that caused the algae bloom in the Pacific ocean to be very acidic and to kill all the sea life that consumed it? Was it a chemical reaction to man made stuff in the ocean or just a unique type of algae created somehow? [Michael Entity] The acidic levels for the algae are part of a natural cycle that simply has not been documented before. There are other factors affecting the algae that are “man-made” in source, but this particular rise in acid is merely a cyclical event. Many cycles associated with weather, oceanic realms, and life on your planet in general have very little understanding, often leading to the modern equivalence to that of the gods being angry during an eclipse. [Ann] This past nexus seemed particularly intense. Is there any way of telling if an individual split off a parallel or if it was intense energies only? [Michael Entity] All of you “spun off” parallels. We have yet to see any of our students who did not. [H2OSprtlvr] I like the parallel I'm currently in. ;-) [Michael Entity] One of the ways in which one can tell when a parallel has spun off during a nexus is in that sense of direction, clarity, and momentum that may not have been present before the nexus. This is due to the fact of “your” now being able to focus on what “you” want, and other versions of you having gone on to focus on other paths. For the first few weeks (and sometimes months) beyond a major nexus, a fragment can feel a great sense of progress and confidence, until new layers of decisions begin to be build, leading to new potentials that will then lead to pivotal choices, leading to more convergences or divergences of realities. [alomarsmom] You have told us that the odds were against Bush completing his term, can you update those odds. Also likely causes for the early ending? [Michael Entity] Our perception remains the same: that a higher percentage of probabilities still has this fragment not completing his term. This is not a prediction, it is simply a standing potential that has a great amount of emphasis. Rising in probability is the extension of the term in an unprecedented way, leading to that extension being the context of his fall; and alongside all of the probabilities there is the possibility of simply completing his term, but with some major “exit” as his means of ending that term. The highest probability for his term ending prematurely still stands as assassination, but charges of crimes against humanity close behind that. [carrotwax] There are a lot of us that were involved in the Alexandrian mystery school. Could Michael bring back an exercise or lesson from that time that would likely be beneficial for the group to remember and practice now? [Michael Entity] Although we cannot possibly answer for all who were involved, we have found a consistent thrill and sense of vague confusion as to why one would be so intrigued by this experience, but many of you relished in the breaking of glass as a practice in purging. The sound of glass shattering, especially in response to one's own actions, is a slightly disturbing delight. The actual practice from the time you refer to as the “Alexandrian Mystery School” was one that involved imbuing glass objects with whatever was thought to need to be purged and then smashing this glass in a special room that enhanced the experience even further. This would be particularly beneficial to many of you who who live in a personal world that is created as so fragile and contained to the point of making as little an imprint as possible around you, all the while craving to leave a great impact in some way. This dichotomy within can be bridged by the shattering-glass exercise. [Lightspring] Could you suggest exercises or information that would aid with the ability to let go of expectation(s)? [Michael Entity] Yes: to allow yourself the freedom of expectations. This is the only means you have for learning to navigate your expectations. To “let go” of expectation is about as useful as giving up your legs; yes, it can be done, but mobility is not enhanced by doing so. Embracing your expectations is to embrace your inner map. However, the expectations that are often felt to be so compelling are simply not the truth of that inner map. To allow the embrace of those expectations can often then reveal the truth of this, and allow for more appropriate desires to lead the way. Expectation is neutral. Your ability to use the tool of expectation is a spectrum. There is a negative form of expectation and a positive form. To expect that the sun will rise can be seen to be quite natural. To expect a loved one to conform to your ideals is quite another end of the spectrum. In this case, it could then be said that TRUST is the positive pole of Expectation and DEMAND is the negative pole. To demand that the sun rise as you will it in the middle of the night is as fruitless as forcing upon another your ideals. To trust that your loved one can find his or her own path of expression and truth despite your ideals is as beautiful an expectation as one that allows the sun to rise on its own. If there is pain involved in your experience of expectation, it is quite likely that it is in the realm of DEMANDS. In this case, one must do the work of exploring WHY one would have such demands and then allow room for a shift of attention. In most cases of DEMAND, or painful expectation, one is in a self-karmic cycle of punishment, either upon the self or upon another. There is a perpetual investment in the Demand until there is vindication. To understand that this is a cycle of punishment will often allow room for the true inner map to be found and a new peaceful navigation to be found. To understand that this is a cycle of punishment is to surrender to the truth that “you will never be right.” When Expectations are painful, when they are DEMANDS, you can never be right. You can only impose your will, if that, but you will never be right. To grasp the reality that there may be more to you than being right can be a disturbing buoy to free oneself from. But there is so much more to you. Demands lead to unfulfilled expectations, which is a root of anger, which is a form of punishment. It is quite obvious to most of you as to where you are Demanding and where you are Trusting. Free yourselves to navigate more gently, softly, and you will find your expectations have clues, motivations, and magnetism within them that are a part of your true inner map. NOTE: We use the statement “you will never be right” as it relates to this particular experience, not as an implication that there is actually a wrong or right. [H2OSprtlvr] It is very exciting that scientist found another planet similar to earth in another solar system. Are there fragments on this new found planet similar to us and do they know about our planet? [Michael Entity] Not yet. There are no sentient inhabitants as of this time that we can see, but there does appear to be plans for populations. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
  6. NYC Live: 08/10/2011 Healing Relationships Note from Janet: This material was transcribed by Elaine and Eric from the live video. MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here and we will begin discussing the subject requested on healing relationships. Bear with us as we come through. The first thing that we will say in terms of healing relationships is that all relationships of significance, in the sense of those relationships that can cause or be affected by wounding, are those that are formed by your relationships developed through your mode in your overleaves. Understanding your own mode, and your overleaves, and how wounding occurs in relationships, why it occurs, and what can help to heal that wounding, can greatly increase your capacity for taking responsibility in those relationships that have been wounded, in those relationships that do suffer from lack of understanding or lack of solution. Because the more you understand your part of the equation in a wounded relationship, the more control or empowerment – or whatever word you would like to use – the more you have the capacity to change that relationship. You cannot control the other person who is involved in the relationship, of course. But taking responsibility for your part, even if it is only to the extent that you understand your part, can have an effect on the other party involved, helping that individual rise to his or her own understanding and sense of responsibility for his or her part in the relationship. All relationships, of significance in particular but relationships in general, are merely relationships with your understanding of yourself. There is no relationship that you navigate that does not specifically cater to your learning more about yourself. All relationships, but particularly those of significance, are relationships with your equals. The fact that you may think that someone is worse than you or better than you, or even unattainable or inaccessible, signifies or equates where you are with yourself. This is often referred to as reflection, and relationships truly are that: a reflection of where you are with yourself. In other words, the state of your relationships often reflects the state of your own internal relationship. It is rare that one who is feeling whole and liking oneself suffers from broken relationships around them. And the same goes for an individual who is divided within and not particularly accepting of himself or herself. He or she will tend to have relationships that reflect that: broken or disappointing or challenging and so forth. So looking at your mode can help you to understand what you expect from relationships, what you are attracted to in the first place in terms of establishing a relationship, and understanding what has become wounded in terms of that relationship. Thus, you can gain your footing in navigating your relationships and raise your capacity for choice, which is the only true tool that every individual has at their disposal. Even when you think that you do not have a choice in your relationships, you do. Before we get into the modes, again we will emphasize that you cannot control the other individuals who are a part of your relationship. To think that understanding your mode and making efforts to heal whatever has been wounded is in some way a strategy for manipulating the other party into a state that is more acceptable to you will not work. The information we will share with you today helps you to understand your part to heal it and to make room for the other individual, or individuals, involved to make their own choices. So the aim here is not to change your relationship as much as it is to heal it. And we use those two words very carefully, differentiating between the intent to recapture someone, or to capture someone, or to reclaim someone, or to change someone, versus heal what has been wounded and then to reset the invitation for that relationship. Resetting the invitation can lead to changes, but the goal will not be to change it. It will be about healing the relationship, and from there your acceptance of the choices of the other individual or individuals involved should be easier to accept and allow. So we will first ask, so that we can focus on the modes of those present, what everyone’s mode is. We think that we have a room of observation and passion. [Audience] And power. [MEntity] Those are the three? [Audience] Observation passion and what? [Audience] Power. [Audience] Who has that? [Audience] Unclear [Audience] A couple of persons are observation though. [Audience] But “secretly...” [Audience] But “secretly” they have power mode. MEntity: So what we will do is start with passion, speak to observation and then speak to power. And if time permits we will cover all of the modes, and if not in this session, we will make sure that the details are shared with Troy to include in a transcript of this session. Those in passion mode tend to be attracted to relationships that transcend time and space. There is a natural quality inherent in those who have passion mode to see beyond any limitations of time and space, and to develop relationships that transcend those, not only in terms of recognizing fragments from previous lifetimes, but also allowing room for the changes and fluctuations that living may bring to a relationship, so that time and space has no bearing on the quality and depth of the relationship. Those in passion mode tend to see an individual from a higher perception, from a bigger picture / standpoint, and does not constrain those relationships to those restrictions of time and space. So passion mode tends to be attractive to those who allow room for those fluctuations in time and space. And for those who do allow this, the relationships last the entire lifetime, to some extent, in some way, and the depth and intimacy is not altered by any divisions caused by time or space. We will circle back to speak about the wounding in a moment Observation mode tends to be attractive to those who can truly see who you are. Those who have observation as their primary mode, tend to be attracted to those who see past all their personas and allow, not just the surface to be seen or rather make known that just the surface is seen, but all of what that individual is. Those in observation mode can tend to do this for others: they can see past the surface, and depending on other factors in the overleaves, those in observation mode can tend to see the best in people or the worst in people, but it is always that they see more than what is shown. So the relationships that tend to be formed and nurtured are those that allow room for all aspects of that personality to express itself, to be seen…and not just seen, but clearly made known that you are accepted despite what you may have thought should not have been revealed about yourself, or that you struggle to hide. Power mode tends to be attracted to the beliefs or the truths of another person. This is often difficult to discern and, depending on factors in the overleaves, can cause some complications in developing and sustaining relationships, because the exposure of an individual’s personal beliefs and perspectives of life often requires exchanges to reveal that. If the overleaves are not in line with the effort to uncover the beliefs of another individual, those in power mode can often sit back and wait to find out what those beliefs are, what those perspectives are, and often miss those opportunities for deeper relationships. However, one of the ways that power mode attracts those to whom he or she can develop those relationships is by being as present as possible, so that he or she is revealing of his or her own personal beliefs in a way that acts as an invitation for those relationships to sustain and nurture. Again, if this is not pursued, it can cause a gap between the self and development of relationships of significance with others, because the key here is in the fact that it is an individual’s truths and perceptions that are attractive to those who have Power mode. Before we circle back and talk about the wounding that can occur, do these resonate with those of you who have those modes? [Audience] Yes. [Audience] Yes, but I have a question. I was wondering if people who have the same mode are generally attracted to each other, based on what you said. MEntity: Yes, modes can tend to be attracted to each other. They can also often be attracted to their compliment on the same axis. But there is no rule for attraction, because the mode, and to whom you are attracted in a lifetime, often depends on what you seek to experience in your lifetime. And by “you” we mean your essence, and if the personality is on board, then the personality as well. Your mode will act as the means by which you relate to and attract another, but it does not automatically attract. [Audience] Thank you. MEntity: Now we will circle back, and speak of the wounding that can occur. Wounding occurs if the mode moves into the negative pole. The causes of this could be any number of things, so we will not go into the causes for why an individual’s mode may fall into the negative pole. This will be something that you can figure out on your own. We can give some clues as to what we think it might be, but it will be your responsibility to determine that on your own, because it may be a large issue, or it may be specific to that relationship. More than likely, it is a larger issue, especially if you’ve seen this occur more than once in various relationships. Then it would be a larger arcing issue that has more to do with yourself than anything. In other words, it would exist with or without those relationships to emphasize it. Passion mode often experiences it’s most wounded-ness in a relationship if it has fallen into the negative poles and suddenly demands or expects time and space to be complied to or adhered to in order for that relationship to have any significance or meaning. If the expectations of time and space are not met, wounding can occur. The phrase “expectations of time and space being met” can be interpreted many different ways and we leave that to you to apply to any of your relevant relationships that have suffered this form of wounding. But in most cases of those with passion mode, they tend to feel the most hurt or affected in a way where relationships are damaged if there is suddenly a restriction or a condition relative to time and space, because this is counter to their nature. It is counter to everything that Passion mode is about, which is the transcendence of that time and space, and the relating to each other based on soul age and relationships of your essence that goes beyond this lifetime. To suddenly have to restrict a relationship to fit those conditions, and they are not met, causes wounding. And like before we will speak of the wounding and then circle back and speak to the healing that tends to work in those relationships. Observation mode can experience the most wounding in a relationship if the individual feels he or she is suddenly not seen, is completely rendered insignificant or invisible in the eyes of someone who previously was seeing you in your entirety. Or the wounding can occur if, in the pursuit of the relationship, the craving and the longing to be seen is not met, and the individual seems to be unable, or incapable, or unwilling to see all of you. Then the wounding can occur. What we’re speaking about today is true wounding. We are not speaking to the disappointments and every day arguments and dismissals. We’re speaking of what truly is experienced as a wounding for the individual. And those with observation mode can tend to feel the most wounded when they suddenly feel invisible. We’ll also point out that all fragments will be able to relate to the various forms of wounding. We’re speaking to the inclination that each individual will have towards developing a relationship and experiencing wounding, but you are not locked into those. These are simply inclinations that tend to be very consistent. Power mode tends to experience the most wounding when there are lies involved: delusion, deceit, or some form of contradiction to what is expressed as a truth, and acted upon differently. Dishonesty. As you can see all of these things may harm any individual, and their relationships, but they tend to be consistently deeply wounding to those relative to the modes associated with them. For power mode, then, this can translate into trust issues. And often, when it comes to power mode, once an initial wounding has happened, it may take a long time to get to a place to allow the experimentation with trust again, whether with an individual or as an individual in terms of accepting new relationships. Now before we move back to what can be healing, we will ask if these descriptions are resonating with you [Audience] Yes MEntity: So now we will speak to what we think might be healing to these modes when they feel wounded. For passion mode, and for our students who have been with us a long time, you may understand the concept of sliding on the axis, so that if your particular overleaf trait is in the negative pole, and you are stuck there – or feel you are stuck – you can pull from / consciously behave from the positive pole of the mode that is paired with you, which will automatically move you to the positive pole of your own nature, your own overleaf. This is called Sliding. [Audience] This is the same concept as with the Goal. Is that correct? When you’re in the negative pole with your goal? MEntity: It can be any overleaf, any axis. Yes. Whatever your overleaf is, if you are stuck in the negative pole, if you consciously choose to behave from the positive pole of the partner, you will automatically pull yourself into your own positive pole. We set up this system so that it is not just a description of yourself, but a map for how to get out of any binds that you feel you may have gotten into. Sometimes the negative poles are perfectly acceptable, and we do not teach our system so that you are consciously striving to escape the negative poles or to avoid them. They are a part of your Personality, they will always be there. However, they do not feel as good and they do not prompt you to feel as alive as your positive poles. So an individual will tend to prefer the positive poles, and your clarity and your openness and your happiness tends to be proportionate to where you are in your Personality between the positive and negative poles. So understanding how to do that can help you make your choices. But if you are in a negative pole, it does not mean you are bad or you are doing something wrong. So in terms if passion mode, what can help heal the wounding that might occur in your relationship is to use what is attractive to the partner mode, in this case, reserved. Reserve Mode is attracted to the past, to an individual’s history. Therefore, if an individual who has passion mode feels wounded in a relationship, it helps to address the past. It helps to talk about where the relationship is in relation to its history. Often this can help put into perspective everything that has existed as a part of that relationship and in that understanding can free it again from the constraints and restrictions and conditions of time and space, especially when the individual realizes that there is nothing about time and space in particular that can take away from the meaning and inspiration of that relationship. By time and space, by the way, we do not speak superficially on showing up on time or being close by. But sometimes those in passion mode can have strict rules about how another behaves in his or her own space. And therefore, those conditions can cause wounding or deflections of relationships. You understand? Those in passion mode, or are you asleep? [Audience] (laugh) I’m not asleep. Yes. I think I understand, yes. MEntity: We will state it again. When conditions get placed on time and space, it does not mean that an individual must be on time in order to feel as if the relationship is good, or that you must be close to each other in order for the relationship to be good. It can also show up as having control or conditions over how an individual behaves when he or she is with you in time and space. [Audience] Isn’t that kind of universal? Like if someone behaves badly, it would be annoying in your space. I mean, I don’t… [Audience] I think it feels normal for us. That’s the whole point. MEntity: Yes, that is the point. [Audience] How can someone not be (unclear). The concept of not being annoyed with the way someone behaves in your…when they’re with you doesn’t even make sense. MEntity: Those in passion mode who can lean towards the negative pole can tend to have the highest standards for how behavior is controlled in his or her space and time. [Audience] That would be me. [Audience] That would be me to. [Audience] Yeah, I am willing to admit that. [Audience] I didn’t quite understand what you said about reserve? MEntity: Those in reserve mode…before we respond we want to make sure we understand your question. You are asking how it fits into the healing? [Audience] Yeah, I mean reserve is the complementary mode of passion, is that correct? MEntity: Yes. [Audience] So yes, how does reserve connect? MEntity: Reserve feels that a relationship is flourishing and tends to be attracted to relationships that are attracted to each other’s history. So for instance, those who have reserve mode will tend to be attracted to a person’s history, not necessarily who that person is now, but who they have been, and this often refers to past lives as well. Those in reserve mode can often find themselves in relationships with individuals who have no obvious reasons for being in that person’s life, but the reserved mode recognizes them from previous lives where relationships were significant, and therefore can attract them in for significant relationships now against all judgments. So in terms of healing for passion mode, returning to the history of a relationship that has been wounded can often provide the healing required for freeing that relationship from those conditions. For instance, if an individual is feeling wounded by the behavior or choices of a significant other in a relationship, it can help to remember what has gone into the relationship up to that point, and to pay attention to that history instead of losing it to the present where behavior is not complying to your conditions. [Audience] That makes it so much clearer. MEntity: Did this answer your question? [Audience] Yes. It makes it clearer, I think. MEntity: We are speaking to Kerrin as well. [Audience] Yeah. Yes, so reserve is another mode, it is not the negative pole of passion right? MEntity: Correct, yes. Passion and reserve are both complementary, inspirational axis modes. Returning to the concept of wounding and what we had said earlier, often those who are in the negative poles of their reserve or passion modes, and seeing this reflected in relationships, is often because of wounding that is occurring within in regards to their sense of inspiration. If an individual does not feel inspired, or is not doing anything that feels inspiring, or is not in any way allowing a relationship internally to be what is inspiring, it can often be reflected in the relationships, and the relationships take the brunt of the expectations for providing that inspiration rather than pulling it from within. [Audience] What is the negative pole of passion? MEntity: Identification. [Audience] What is the definition of that? MEntity: Those in passion mode who go into the negative pole can tend to lose their boundaries between themselves and whatever it is that they have focused their passion on. The relationship then becomes an extension of identity, rather than a way to actualize the self, a way to learn more about the self, a way to grow. Instead, it is just an extension of the self. Therefore, whatever is happening in this individual’s life, if it is not complying with what you would do, issues can arise. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes MEntity: To put it in simpler terms, an individual in passion mode…if he or she were to cook you dinner and serve it – a plate of spaghetti, let’s say – those who eat it might say “I love this,” or “I do not like it.” Passion mode in the negative pole will hear “I do not like you,” or “I like you.” They have lost their boundaries between themselves and the spaghetti. [Audience] Yes. [Audience] Yes, I completely understand that. (Unclear) MEntity: Observation mode now. The healing that often comes to those who have been wounded does not come from pushing the other individual to see you more clearly, but that you make the effort to see the other person more clearly. It is often the case that when you feel the most invisible, you have also lost perspective of the other person. So those in observation mode would do well to practice, or to put effort into, seeing the other individual or individuals beyond the surface or, more specifically, beyond what you think is defining that other individual at the time. Because observation is a neutral overleaf, it has access to all of the other modes, and it can tend to slide to any of the other ones. Usually there is a habitual means of sliding that a neutral overleaf will develop over the lifetime. So, as we cover all of the modes, you may find that the solution can be helped and supported by wherever you slide. For instance, if you slide to passion mode from observation, your relationship may find support by freeing that relationship from the conditions that you have, or the expectations you have placed on it in terms of time and space. In other words, you may be thinking that an individual should be processing things faster, or keeping up with your speed of processing, when you may need to free them from that restriction. Or, sliding into reserve, it may help you to look to the history that is a part of your relationship, rather than just at the myopic version of your relationship currently. So that is how that would work if you have a neutral mode. The sliding to these other modes would only be for support, because ultimately the goal will still be for you to expand your perception, or your capacity to see the other individual more clearly, as a means of healing the relationship. This does not mean that you will be seen by that individual, but expanding your capacity to see another individual more clearly is not a strategy or a manipulation for helping them to see you more clearly, but rather for you to be able to see their innocence, to see their capacity for making choices to the extent that they are capable of this time, for their capacity to see to the extent that they can see, which may not include all of you. Sometimes you are not seen, not because what is see-able is ugly, but because the other individual simply cannot see. And by your being able to expand your capacity to see that, it frees you from locking into that struggle to be seen and continuing the wounding. The healing that can come for power mode is to utilize what is a part of caution mode’s attraction. Caution tends to be attracted to the security of a relationship, to the safety that another individual provides, or to the sense of safety that is developed within, as a result of the relationship, or to the confidence of another individual. Caution is strongly attracted to that because caution mode tends to work on developing that sense of confidence, that inner security, and so forth. So when power mode feels distrust and feels divided from the capacity for inviting relationships, it can often be healed by developing trust in the self, by developing confidence in the self. If there is a relationship that has been wounded as a part of a blow to trust, that wounding can be healed by the realization that it has no effect on your own sense of self. It has no effect on your sense of trust in you. Sometimes when you enter a relationship, and this is in particular with power mode, there can be a strong wounding occurring if you feel duped, if you feel that something has deceived you or misled you. This can develop into a distrust in your own perceptions, your own capacities to discern and to navigate. Understanding that the choices of another individual, and their capacity to express their truths consistently, has no bearing on your capacity to do that for yourself can bring about the healing for the wounding that may have occurred as a result of those experiences. Going back to observation, we’ll say that what tends to be the case on a larger scale, as we said with passion mode, it tends to be an inspirational issue that can often affect relationships and bring about wounding, because that issue is already inherent in the individual. For the observation mode, it tends to be an emotional – as well an inspirational – but a personal emotional issue that is carried around with you: some form of emotional wounding for which you are waiting for someone to see and to accept and to embrace, a brokenness to some extent. So for those in observation mode, addressing that brokenness, that sense of wounding that is carried around with or without a relationship can greatly increase your capacity for managing many relationships that suffer blows in the future, because often those blows in the relationships speak to or trigger than wounding, that emotional wounding that has been carried long before the relationship came to suffer blows. Observation is related to the emotional rather than the assimilative and those of you who understand our system will see that this may seem like an anomaly, but it is not. In terms of how the mode works in this realm of relationships, it is an emotional mode, whereas reserved mode is the instinctive or the assimilative mode, and we can go into that apparent anomaly another time if it is of interest. Power and caution tend to carry into relationships…With or without relationships these issues may exist, and that would be what we might describe as contradictions within. With or without a relationship, often power mode walks around carrying a confusion about what he is, where he is going, what he is doing, and lives in this divide of how to be present in the world, and what that means. So in short, they have not defined their truths yet. They have not found yet what feels comfortable as a truth, and until that individual does, it can often show up in relationships as distrust and of course develop into distrust within. Because if you do not have that navigational tool of perception and truth to guide you, you feel as if you can’t even trust yourself. So what we’ve described so far in relation to the modes and relationships, wounding, healing…have they all made sense to you? [Audience] Yes [Audience] I have one question. It’s to come back to the way to address the wounding and about going back to the history of a relationship. I find that I agree with that in a sense that I do go back to review the history of a relationship, but I actually find myself getting stuck sometimes in that past or getting resentment or…is that linked to something else in my makeup or is that an aspect? The way I am going about looking at the past…it’s creating a sort of stuckness in the past. MEntity: Well there are two responses we can give to this. One is that yes, you can…those who are in passion mode who then look to the past for the healing by recognizing “maybe this relationship isn’t wounding me as badly as I thought it was, just because it’s not complying to my expectations currently. Look at the history. It’s been wonderful.” However, if it has not been wonderful, then that same negative pole that has caused you to restrict your focus on the current time and space can then look into the history and hone in on one of those past experiences that contribute to supporting why you are having trouble or feeling wounded currently. So if you think of it in terms of looking back across the landscape and then suddenly seeing that there is a trip along the path, passion mode can hone in on this and say, “See? Here’s why I don’t…this is why I feel wounded, or this is why I am bitter.” But the key will be not to search the history for proof, but to see the history in it’s wholeness, and that would be the difference. When passion mode looks to the history, it does not serve it well to look for proof to support the present disappointments, but rather to look at the overall picture of the history in fairness. If that picture reveals to you that the current relationship is simply not one that is healthy, and one that is necessary to step away from, then you are still healing the wounds, because you are seeing that larger arc of history and saying, “There is a pattern here that dominates, and it is not so great for me.” Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: So when we said that were have two responses, one is that if you are honing in and looking for proof to support your disappointments now, then you know that you are possibly not doing the work of healing. However, if you are looking at the bigger picture and seeing that there is a pattern that is not healthy, then you are doing the work and you can make your choices from there. [Audience] Yes, thank you. [Audience] Does frequency play a role in that process? MEntity: It plays a role in every process. [Audience] In the speed of healing? MEntity: Yes. Those who are on the lower end of their frequency will tend to take a lot longer to heal. It’s not a rule, it just simply tends to be that way. [Audience] Do they tend to hone in more on evidence to support their disappointments? MEntity: Not necessarily, but the length of time for healing seems to be consistent in terms of a higher frequency person can process and heal faster than a lower frequency person. But in terms of searching the history, a high frequency person can also tend to hone in on past issues that support complaints currently. However, it could be said that the lower frequency makes the exploration of the past slower in terms of processing, which makes those instances appear more clearly than to a person with higher frequency. Does this make sense? [Audience] Yeah. MEntity: Any more questions? [Audience] I have a question from Geraldine. She would like to ask about the mode differences between one's casting vs. ones chosen for role and personality if the casting modes have equal influence? MEntity: We do not understand the question. [Audience] What is a casting mode? [Audience] Maybe the mode that is associated with your casting? MEntity: No, we are speaking of the actual overleaf that is part of your Personality design, not the ones associated with your role or casting. [Audience] ::Discussion (not included):: MEntity: Your role and your casting, and their association to the other overleaves that are on the same axis has no bearing on this particular discussion. Any more questions? Any relationships or examples of relationships, that you would like to discuss can also be bought forth if you choose to. [Audience] There is so many in the room right now. [Audience] Oh yeah, it could be hours. [Audience] Where to even start? MEntity: We cannot solve those or heal those for you, but we think that what we have shared today might help shed light on your part of the equation that can then increase your capacity to choose what to do from there. [Audience] I do think it was very helpful. I mean, to remember why you are in the relationship to start with, like all the great things that you have or had. It seems like such a simple thing, like why didn’t you think of it. You know what I mean? [Audience] I have a question. Everything that you’ve been discussing so far was, from what I understand, from the vantage point of you healing a relationship with another person. Everything that you have discussed, can you apply that if you are trying to heal a part of yourself or if you’re trying to heal your own relationship with yourself? Like, would part of the problem or the infighting be that, if you are of a certain mode, are the positive and negative poles of that mode conflicting or trying to fight off one another? MEntity: Well what we can say to that is that you are correct in your assessment that applying this to relationships within will also be affected. So that, if you are in passion mode for instance, and you are seeing this played out in your relationships – where you are finding yourself wounded by the non-compliance to the constrictions which you may have placed, or the conditions you may have placed on other individuals in terms of time and space – you can turn that within and find that maybe you are also imposing those upon yourself, and that you are thinking you have limited time in order to be who you are, or that you may have to have certain things or conditions in place in your life before you can be who you are, or to find that inspiration, and so forth. Looking at all of this conditions relative to time and space within can free you to heal those inner conflicts. Or in terms of observation mode, there may be elements within the self which you refuse to see that you are expecting others to do the work of seeing and bringing to the surface. And therefore, it could be that you are ignoring a part of yourself or that you consistently do that as a method of relating to yourself: ignoring certain feelings, ignoring certain thoughts, dividing yourself in certain ways in order to feel as if you are a whole person when in fact you only feel whole if you keep this over here and that over here, and so forth. Of course we are speaking metaphorically here. So the for instance, in terms of the overleaf itself, the negative pole of observation is surveillance. The positive pole is clarity. So when an individual is using the positive pole of observation, it means that the individual is able to see the life in a 360 degree fashion. There is clarity about where you are going, who you are, who other people are, what they are doing, and so forth. There is a sense of participation in life and being able to see where you are going. In the negative pole of surveillance, the individual then divides himself from life as a means of seeing things more clearly. And so it can feel as if you are living in life, but watching it through a glass window. You are somehow no longer a part of the very life you are living, a great disconnection. So this can occur within as well, where you become your own observer, rather than your own experiencer. You are watching yourself live your life rather than living it, and it would do you well to bring more of your self into the picture that you so often simply watch as a means of healing that divide within. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: If there is any validity to what we have shared, it should have hit home quite personally. As we said, there is no hard and fast rule associated with these, but there is a consistency that can be explored with relevancy to your relationships within and without. We will quickly add in perseverance mode and aggression mode so that it is completed in our discussion here. Perseverance mode tends to be attracted to physical relationships, to the physical presence of another person, to their physicality, how that individual shows up in their own skin. Perseverance mode can often, in fact, use sexuality as a form of relating. But perseverance mode truly connects to the physical presence of another individual. Aggression mode, on the other hand, is attracted to the totality of an individual: not just their physical presence, but the totality the individual’s beliefs, the individual’s choices, the individuals behavior, the individual’s physicality, their emotional realm, their physical realm, their intellectual realm, their spiritual realm. Aggression mode tends to look at all of it in terms of relating. [Audience] That is so interesting, because my father is in aggression mode and he just recently, apparently, told my mother that she is everything that he’d ever wanted. MEntity: And we think that she is attracted to him for the security and safety. [Audience] Yeah, she’s Caution Mode. [Audience] What’s Caution mode’s one? [Audience] It attracts to security and safety. MEntity: So we will leave those. We can explore them further, but we wanted to throw that in. And the wounding of course would come from extensions that can be extrapolated from the words that we have described. That, if an individual physically alters, for instance, in a relationship with someone who is in perseverance mode, it can be devastating. And by physically alter, we mean there can be indiscretions, or cheating, or ill health, or the lack of productivity. Anything tangible about the individual becomes a measurement for what is meaningful. For aggression mode, of course, the wounding may come from an individual becoming fragmented, divided, scattered, not present, not whole. Those in aggression mode have very few relationships because of this, as well, because there are very few fragments on the planet who are not fragmented. But, because these two particular modes are not present, we will not elaborate upon them. We will conclude or wrap up our discussion about his if there are no more questions. [Audience] I would a question, then. In terms of my relationship with my mother, everything you said fits in with that except that I’m not quite sure what concretely…I guess I want a little bit more concreteness about how to go about improving the relationship, because I definitely feel that I was wounded at some point in the not being seen aspect and then feeling the violation of time and space in that relationship throughout, starting a certain point in my childhood. And it comes up in our interaction, and of course I can’t decide not to interact with my mother anymore. I don’t know if there is something… MEntity: What is your primary mode? [Audience] My mode is passion and her mode is observation. MEntity: Knowing the other individual’s mode is helpful, or can be helpful, because this will give you clues as to what the other individual might need. In this case, as you’ve already discerned, it might be that she does not either feel seen by you or completely accepted in what you see in her. But it also may be – and this is something that will be important for you to understand if you chose to heal in this relationship – is to understand that this particular fragment may never truly like what she sees about herself as well, that there may be parts of her that she refuses to see, and, because you see them, you are held at bay, or given challenges, or struggled against. Do you understand that part? [Audience] Yeah, I’m sorry. I am surprised, because I thought it was about more the wounding, the feeling that I wasn’t seen, but you’re saying that the wounding is on both sides or just on her side? MEntity: If your mode is passion, that is where you want to focus what we shared with you so far. If yours were observation, then your issues would be about being seen or not being seen. However, in your case it, would be more about the relationship in terms of passion and the wounding that occurs in relation to passion, because that is your experience of the relationship. In other words, your mother is an extension of you, and therefore if she is not complying with the expectations that you have of what a mother is, then you may feel the wounding. [Audience] So the wounding is for all modes when you are not seen, or just for the observations mode? MEntity: Just for the observation mode. However, as we said before, there is no rule. Those in passion mode can also experience the feeling of not being seen. For instance, Sages in general have this issue and struggle with it across many lifetimes. Those who have arrogance can have issues of being seen or not being seen, those with self-deprecation. So it is not specifically linked to, or isolated to, a particular mode, but in this context of discussion, in terms of wounding and how individuals relate, this is a clue as to what might be causing the wounding and what could heal the wounding. So in your case, you would focus on the passion and the information we shared relative to that, but if you want to understand where your mother is coming from, then you would want to understand how observation works, because then you have insight into how she is experiencing the relationship. Do you understand? [Audience] Yeah, so the focus on my own passion would be then for me to focus on the time and space. MEntity: Yes, letting her be free from the constraints of your expectations about how she should be now, how she should have been, how present she is, how close you are. Letting her be free from that can help you heal. It may not help you have a better relationship with her, it may not help you to encourage a closer relationship, but at least it will help you heal, which, like we said before, resets the invitation for a better relationship if it is possible. In some cases, it simply is not possible to get what you want from a relationship, even if it’s with a parent. [Audience] Thank you. MEntity: Knowing that she is in observation mode, you can use that to help with the invitation for a better relationship by consciously allowing yourself to see, or expressing to her that she is okay the way she is; that you accept her as she is, not necessarily what she has done, or your responses to it, or your feelings of wounding, but that you are okay with who she is; that she is not just a mother; that she is more than that. She is a person. She is an individual who had a life before you and you are a part of that life, not her life. Being able to see and express that you embrace the totality of her may help her to feel more her own or invite her own form of healing. Do you understand? [Audience] Yes. MEntity: But the work starts with your own, for all of you. So it is not necessary for you to know the modes of those with whom you have struggles. If that were the case, no one would heal. And it is not even necessary for you to know all of this information for you to heal, it just helps. All of you would find your own way with or without this information, or not. We will wrap up the session then here, if there are no more questions. UNRELATED QUESTIONS: Left Out

    Ask Michael- August 3, 2014

    Ask Michael Open Floor Chat August 3, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [Ty] I've been interested in the not-so-commonly held Historicist interpretation of the Book of Revelation lately: Could Michael comment on their perspective of what exactly is the deal with that piece of writing? (like what it means, etc) [MEntity] To examine this writing, particularly in terms of its reinterpretations of reinterpretations, would be quite a task, as there are such personal and nuanced symbolism within it that builds upon itself within particular contexts set. For example, if one were to explore the meaning of a dream where one sees a red wand that is suspended by light while swimming in a lake, one would have [MEntity] several elements here to explore before fully comprehending the symbolic language in its parts and as a whole as a message. [MEntity] So for simplistic purposes, we will say that, overall, the writing is a personal account of this individual's sense of his world ending, or transforming. It is not prophetic, and was never meant to be prophetic. [MEntity] It was never meant to refer to the world beyond his known world. [Ty] So things that appear to match up quite well historically would be coincidence? [MEntity] To apply this individual's dreams to relevance in time beyond himself is about as useful as reading any one of our student's dream journals in your community as a means to gain insight into your own life. [MEntity] Historically, there may be significance, but not beyond his own time. [MEntity] Depending on the version one is reading, the altering of words to retrofit more recent history (relatively speaking) can be fairly high. [MEntity] It is natural for imagination to find patterns, and then this must be navigated with intelligence to sort through which are valid. For example, there are many who feel that there is significance to a particular time seen on a digital clock when that is rarely the case. It simply happens that it is a pattern that you can extract from your experiences. [MEntity] Some patterns are ignored because there is intelligence involved. For example, going in and out of your front door of your home is not a startling event of significance, even though it is far more likely a pattern of signifance and consistency than a digital clock read out. [MEntity] And though a digital clock read out will never amount to more than an amusing synchronicity, many will impose mysterious significance upon it. [Ty] Sounds like you're talking about Angel Numbers [GeraldineB] 11:11 [MEntity] We use these more accessible examples as a means to point to the same process being used when interpreting writing, dreams, and records from the past as seen as prophecy. [Ty] Some of the writing claim in themselves to be prophecies, such as he book of Daniel from the OT [MEntity] We once described a "future" to our students as including homes that were partly triangular shape, connected by strands of light that were used for instant travel. This was met with oohs and ahhhs until we pointed out that we were describing the roofs of homes currently on the block, connected by cables of electricity and television and internet, which allowed for instant "travel." [MEntity] Our point being that our description of the present in more poetic terms could be interpreted outside of time and in any number of ways. This is how some historic writing is in nature, as well. [GeraldineB] I'd like to ask for followup information about how wide-spread Transcendental Souls are spread out through out society. You've alluded to it previously as many are unknown people outside of their local area. Recently, you said that several comedians were TSs -- is this in the full sense of being O6s or in a particular way they are functioning? [MEntity] We do not think we referred to these fragments as Transcendental Souls, but as teachers/channels for Entities. [MEntity] These are distinctly different contexts. [GeraldineB] ooh ok -- I thought the term TS was used -- [GeraldineB] then, please explain what you did mean [MEntity] For example, Troy is not a Transcendental Soul, he is a channel for us. Troy is not of our Entity, and therefore will never be a Transcendental Soul representing us. For us to be a Transcendental Soul, a fragment from our own Entity must incarnate. A Transcendental Soul is born, not channeled, though the fragment born does act as a channel for his or her Entity. [GeraldineB] oooooh [GeraldineB] But, you are cycled off [MEntity] Many comedians, healers, dancers, artists, etc are teachers/or channels for Entities with a teaching, just like us. [MEntity] Different Entities teach in different ways through different Centers. Our Teaching is Intellectually-based, while including the Emotional and Moving. More Movement-based teachings require channels who move, use the body more, and/or have more direct access to students, such as dancers and healers. [MEntity] And so on. [MEntity] All True Teachings include all Centers, but are based in different ways. We do not provide healing energy, nor do we inspire through a pirouette, but we still heal and inspire. [Maureen] Which center did Seth teach through? [MEntity] Intellectual, of course. [MEntity] If the teaching is vocal, it is Intellectual. [MEntity] All Entities as they pass through the Causal will teach the Physical Plane in some way, so there must be a multitude of channels and methods of teaching. [MEntity] The variation of Parallels allows for all Entities to have sets of parallels that are focused on their collection of students. Within that set, there will be at least one parallel where the incarnation as Transcendental Soul is fulfilled. [MEntity] As for the state of Transcendental Souls on the planet, there are very few in this parallel. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, in the OMW section of this site I found some nifty information on how Aggression and Power Modes evolve intimacy. [Kurtis] "...Aggression is an exalted action Overleaf. Aggression evolves intimacy by way of constant change, movement, activity, progress. One must be able to "keep up." [Kurtis] Intimacy is nearly impossible with someone who might wish to slow you down, tame you, or fault you for constant change of focus and directions." [Kurtis] "...Power Mode is about Being Present. It is an Expressive Overleaf, not an action, so it will be about making your presence known in some way. [Kurtis] It is about owning your presence, being comfortable in your skin, "being yourself." [Kurtis] In other words, how you might evolve intimacy is in how much of "you" can be present, be permitted, allowed, without shame, silencing, etc." [Kurtis] I was wondering if you could provide the same info for how the other modes evolve intimacy like those examples. [Kurtis] Particularly Observation, Passion and Reserve, as most students here are or slide to those modes. [Kurtis] I don't want to take too much time off of others questions so if all other 5 can't be fit in, just cut some off of course and I can ask for them another time. [MEntity] For Observation Mode, it is a matter of truly seeing and being seen. The key, however, is that it is not a static state. It is an evolving, shifting, and adaptive state of seeing and being seen. Intimacy for Observation Mode is killed if someone locks him or her in one version of himself or herself. If the one in Observation does not allow for the variations and facets of others, but locks them into one preference or expectation, this begins to repel the other. [MEntity] For Passion Mode, intimacy is evolved through each being extensions of the other. This can show up in a range between co-dependency and co-creation. Co-dependency expects the other to represent himself or herself. Behaving in ways that are outside of the range of Passion's own behavior can be startling and divisive. This can still lead to intimacy, depending upon the relationship, because some are drawn to Passion precisely for that context of personal transformation. If this is not an understood dynamic, it can be messy. [MEntity] This is usually the case when Passion is used or sought for teaching. [MEntity] Co-creation is a dynamic of inspiration that feeds from one another as Passion learns about the self through other. This is more appealing, as both are learning then. [MEntity] Both are teachers. [MEntity] Reserve evolves in intimacy through layers of reveal. It must be experienced and processed as layers, not as a dive into a deep pool, but as a cool or warm sip at a time. [MEntity] As you can see, the reason Obvservation cannot be static is because it can slide to any of these, and each of these are valid paths of intimacy. [MEntity] We can eleborate upon all of these as a topic of focus, if that is requested. [ViP1] Why is it necessary for an Entity to reunite before cycling off the Astral plane to the Causal plane, as compared to fragments being able to reside on, or move to, the Causal plane without that happening first? (Or even before that, if I remember correctly, possibly by the 6th level of the Astral?) Is the sheer amount of input on the Causal plane too much for a single fragment to process without the bonding and resonance with the rest of the Entity in place? [MEntity] There could be two valid responses to that question. One is that your latter suggestion is true. To move through the Causal as a fragment would "destroy" the fragment. The density of the Plane is such that the physics would disintegrate the fragment. There may be more accurate words to describe this, but it is fair enough in terms of understanding it here. We can only speculate on this, of course, as no individual fragment has resided in the Causal. [MEntity] In much the same way that your Physical Body could not be sustained in the Astral, neither can the Astral Body be sustained in the Causal. At least, not in the way it was used in the Astral. [ViP1] ok (I thought individual fragments also had Causal bodies, but perhaps these are built such that they must "hook in" to the Causal body of the Entity as a whole?) [MEntity] Your response here leads to our second answer. [MEntity] The reason one is referred to as a fragment is because one is already a part of a whole. That whole already exists, and as one moves beyond the denser planes, that fragmentation is naturally left behind, even if the "individual" is not. [MEntity] Your "Causal" Bodies ARE your Entity. [MEntity] It is a field shared across all fragments of that Entity. [MEntity] As a Physical Incarnation, this may be more nuanced in its relevance to the fragment, but it is still connected across all fragments. [MEntity] Imagine an ice cube tray that could produce 1000 cubes. Your Entity is a perpetually-replenished pitcher of water poured into that tray, divided into cubes. When frozen, that is like an incarnation. When thawed, that is like the Astral. When poured back into the pitcher, it is the Causal. [MEntity] So it is not so much that the fragment would be "destroyed" as an individual in the Causal, but that the very nature of progression to the Causal, naturally, requires a different state. [MEntity] As an ice cube, "you" are destroyed. But everything that made up that ice cube is never lost. [ViP1] and all ice cube shapes are stored in the Akashic [MEntity] We realize these are crude analogies, but they work. [MEntity] To include how the Akashic fits into this, we would have to move to a different analogy or metaphor, as it is not a Plane in which anyone resides, but is only accessed. [MEntity] It is more like the center of a vortex that exists because of what is spinning around it. A donut hole, if you will. [ROYCEonROIDS] Art as I know it at its best is a reflection of the mysterious, the wonder, the beyond words . As the world begins to approach an old soul paradigm in a few hundred year or so...how would art change. would it still be necessary in the ways we know it? as more PEOPLE become the reflection of that WONDER that art encapsulated, what place will ART have in that world? [MEntity] Though this varies among Old Soul worlds, Art escalates in range and importance among all of them. It is often no longer confined to a specific range of media or obvious creativity, but comes to include the entire life of an individual, how he or she creates his or her day, etc. This is already being glanced at in your current paradigm, though colored heavily by Young Soul filters. [MEntity] "Reality TV" is, at its heart, a glimpse of Old Soul Art. [MEntity] Becoming a celebrity only because one has become a celebrity is also a distorted form of Old Soul Art. [MEntity] These things may be repulsive to older souls as they are being presented now, but these hint at an undercurrent of acknowledgement of the LIFE as ART. [MEntity] In many Old Soul worlds, Art is entirely experiential and temporal. Exhibitions are sunsets that can never been seen again, or gatherings where spontaneous suggestions are matched up with random individuals who must then perform, create, or do the suggestion, even if it is well outside of their talents. [MEntity] This leads to great rounds of humor and levity that is often at the core of Old Soul arts. [MEntity] Interactivity is highly important to the Old Soul world of art, as well. For example, one installation we know of is something like a steep hill of xylophone-like panels that are carefully arranged in ways that an individual could dance down this hill in any number of ways to create his or her song of spontaneity. [MEntity] Collaborative art is highly important to the Old Soul world of art, as well. In many probabilities, holographic-like galleries are "online" for contributors to create projects that can be altered by anyone from anywhere. No walk through that gallery is met with the same version of the art. [MEntity] Interactivity, Collaboration, Temporal/Amorphous, and spontaneous are key traits for Old Soul arts, though we caution against presuming these traits are definitive. There is more we can say to this subject. [Maureen] I just realized that my question may tie in (indirectly) with Royce’s question. [Maureen] "The "rise of the selfie" is pretty well accepted now as a big part of our culture, but I can see the “darker side” of it representing a self absorption and self-indulgence that seems "boundless" some days, especially on facebook where some choose very little actual dialogue and over-posting is like an epidemic. It's a one way blast of "me-ness"." [Maureen] Do you see that so much “self-interest” is related to 1) incomplete 4th Internal Monads, 2) the average Soul Age being Mature (including manifested Soul Age as well), 3) narcissism, 4) pure, unfettered self expression, or 5) all of the above, 6) something else? Any comment on this would be appreciated as I would really like to understand this phenomenon. [MEntity] At no other time in your history has there been such a shared space of celebration of the self. This is a transitional state between Young and Mature. It is beautiful to us. There was a time when it was sinful, shameful, and even evil to look in a mirror, as well as dangerous to be photographed. There was a time when disowning the self in disgust was Holy. Now you are in a time when the mundane is being celebrated. The self is being allowed to be seen, not just in terms of how others see that self, but in terms of how that self wishes to be seen. [MEntity] Yes, there is a clamoring of noise in this celebration, but that is the nature of celebration. [MEntity] You are in a time of liberation, which often comes before freedom. True Freedom. Liberation is the relief that comes with surges of noise while still anchored in some restrictions or extremes, often with great displays for the external world, while True Freedom is owned, experienced, and known, often in quiet, internal ways. [MEntity] It is beautiful to us because it is a step in the direction of acknowledging that you are important, that the mundane is important, that a moment is important, that context exists beyond preordained contexts. [MEntity] Our Species has long been subject to the notion that only the next world is important, or that *things* are important, or that only that which is deemed important is important, and those things are important, but not at the expense of the singular joy in sharing, of expressing, of being, of capturing a moment of mundanity. [MEntity] The species knows that privacy is a concept of the Young Paradigm, and that a Mature and Old Paradigm must embrace a lack of privacy in a healthy way for evolution to continue. [MEntity] Willingly offering up yourself in the most mundane of ways may seem to be a bumbling or chaotic, self-absorbed step, but it is a step in the direction of evolution. If the emphasis were to remain only on privacy and protection, then true invasion is much more likely. But in the same way that hackers teach systems better how to manage its delicate systems, so does constant exposure help the species to learn better how to manage its delicate identities. [Maureen] If Liberation is the "negative" pole and Freedom is the "positive" pole -- what are they the poles of? [MEntity] Among your options for describing the motivations of those contributing to the visual cacophony of "selfies" and other related sharing, we can say that "all of the above" would naturally be included because those motivations are reflective of the various fragments and Personalities among you. [MEntity] In response to the last question, it could be said to be the poles at either end of whatever was being oppressed: innocence, power, sexuality, etc. [Maureen] Thanks Michael. That was an interesting answer. [MEntity] When any of these oppressed states are liberated, there is "noise" that then moves into a more peaceful state.
  8. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  9. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 040107 Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested "Energy Report." To continue the arc of exploration into the Mode for the year, Observation continues be the emphasis. Clarity as the positive pole seems to be a strong force for most of our students, with very little fall into Surveillance. By that we mean that what is being observed is not distanced from the observer. The experience of clarity through observation is specifically due to the intimacy, or resonance, with that which is being observed in terms of HOW one is relating to personal goals, and HOW one is relating to others. We see most of our students as experiencing a range from tolerance to true comfort in terms of exploring their relationship with Dominance's poles (LEADERSHIP: asserting direction over that which can be directed; or DICTATORSHIP: asserting control over that which is not yours to control). Over the next month or so, along with this Clarity of relationship with Dominance, many students may find themselves experiencing a theme of SURRENDER. By this we mean that many of our students will clearly be able to see what can be directed in the life, and what simply cannot be controlled. Surrender is the healthy, conscious acknowledgment of that which cannot be controlled. Surrender is NOT the same thing as Resignation, which is a "giving up." Being caught in a rainstorm without an umbrella is an opportunity for Surrender. It is raining. You cannot control that. Surrender. Two people can be caught in a rainstorm and one person can surrender while the other resigns. Surrender is an empowering alignment with the force that is greater than you, while Resignation is a discordant overwhelm by the force that is great than you. It is encouraged that you remember that this period of time from March through May carries with it an emphasis on your relationship to Self, which is often played out through your Self-Karma. It is of no surprise to us that your little groups were brought into focus as a playground for various Self-Karma to be played out. If ALL responses to the group issues at hand were to be explored FIRST as personal issues of inner karma, a great deal of progress could be made to your liking. April 13 through the 19th appear to us to be a Nexus with a focus on DIVERGENCES (or the splitting off of parallel universes). Choices made over the first part of the year will now find their various places among the various versions of you. We suspect that most of our students can see the one or two major choices that have been made, or will have been made, by the middle of April that would generate a parallel life. Troy's move to Holland, for instance, is a parallel version of his life that will parallel versions that do not leave the U.S. Most of you will know what choice is being made that, if not made, would have led to very different places. April 13th through 19th is a frame of time were many fragments will shift in terms of branching off versions of the life. This branching off is not unusual, and it happens "all the time," but when many happen at once, this is called a Nexus. It would not be surprising to us if that period of time brings about fantastical dreams, extra sleep, exhaustion, distractions, etc. This is due to the literal use of energy from the life to generate a parallel or parallels. In most cases, we see the theme for this Nexus as being parallels that are the ACTIVE, contributing parallels that focused on SURRENDER so that true empowerment is the emphasis, versus the more PASSIVE, self-protective parallels that focus on RESIGNATION and struggle for a sense of control. We will open the floor for questions now. [Ann] Would michael say that surrender comes with more of a feeling of joy than resignation or at least pleasure? [Michael Entity] Often Surrender is ecstasy. The feeling of being consumed by a force greater than oneself, but also falling into alignment with that force, is a practice is surrender to Essence, Entity, Cadre, Energy Ring, and on through to Tao. Returning to the experience of being caught in the rain: one can complain and resign bitterly to the wet or surrender and turn the face toward the reality of the cool wash that is rain. Surrender is TRUST. It is the retrieval of experiences from the past that remind you that you will survive that experience. To turn to something more intense: if one were to find that one has a terminal illness, one can also surrender. This is different from "giving up," or resigning. Often those who surrender to a terminal illness are the ones who survive that illness, because the alignment with that greater force then allows more empowering decisions and shifts within the body and mind that could not have happened from the struggling resistance or resignation. So, yes, it is often a pleasure to surrender. [H2OSprtlvr] Is Fasting good for our bodies? If so is there a particular way to Fast, such as drinking a mix of something or just abstaining from food all together? [Michael Entity] Fasting is a natural process for the human body that has lost its place among modern patterns of eating. In the past, various fasting periods of time were naturally in place for practices of conserving energy, food sources, and often from necessity. This allowed the body to "reset" itself in various ways, physically, psychologically, and eventually the spiritual elements were added to the process. Fasting allows a great deal of energy to move that would normally NOT move because of the process of intake. Fasting is actually more important than ever for the human body, as your world is utterly drowning itself in various forms of constant intake without true digestion. There are various forms of fasting, but an "easy" fast is to simply stop eating for 3 days. Liquids are always important for the process of fasting, as this helps to move the energy that needs to move. Liquids can include simple soups (light miso), water (with up to 10% juice, if preferred), and some simple teas (without caffeine). A fast will not "feel good" during the process, unless it is a process that you have experienced regularly, but the return to digesting life after a fast can be quite profound in experience. We suggest a fast as being no shorter than three days, and no longer than 7. In short, fasting is excellent for all levels of all of your bodies. [H2OSprtlvr] "digesting life after a fast" is a profound statement. [Kathryn41] I was fortunate enough to hear a crystal bowl concert today, and hearing the sounds certainly felt very energizing and cleansing to my body. What sounds are most useful for 'cleansing/healing' and what sounds would work against such objectives? I find a lot of what passes for popular music today very uncomfortable, so much so that it actually 'hurts'. [Michael Entity] The Sun that you know is a neutral force, but the experience of a thirsting man in the desert is different from the oiled-up lovely lady on the beach in her sun hat. Sound/Music is the same. NONE of it is "bad" for you on its own, or even "better" or "good" for you on its own, but certain circumstances, internally or externally, can change your experience of that sound/music. Knowing your internal and external circumstances helps you to navigate your place in the sun and among the sounds in your world based upon how you resonate with the variations of those forces. In other words, knowing that your skin is sensitive can allow you to provide yourself relief and protection from the forces of the sun that are just as beneficial to someone else. [Kathryn41] that makes sense, thank you [Michael Entity] Knowing that your hearing, or sense of harmony, is sensitive can allow you to provide yourself relief and protection from the forces of sound that are just as beneficial to someone else. This extends to all forces in your world. Movies, music, news, etc. ARE ALL NEUTRAL. Your PERSONAL experience of those things is what determines their place on your spectrum of "good" or "bad." [Kathryn41] so 'we' are the variables:-) [Michael Entity] We would describe your statement as very well put. It may appear that the discordant sounds of "hair-metal" are awful forces in the world, but they are not. They are simply the sounds that already exist, with or without your approval or resonance. For many, the externalization of inner discord through the harshness of sound is a healing process. However, this is not to say that there is not a range of sound that exists from Discord to Harmony. That range does exist. And in the same way that one progresses from choices based in Survival to choices based in Compassion, so does one's preference for Harmony tend to evolve. And in the same way that every soul age includes the comprehension of every previous soul age, so does one's preferences for higher harmonies have to built upon the comprehension of lower discord. Simply dismissing music as awful is not a step toward harmony. Comprehending the spectrum of preferences among your fellow fragments helps to comprehend the spectrum within yourself. [H2OSprtlvr] Are the wild dolphins around the Fiji islands that interact with the tourist annoyed with the human tourist for being dropped off in their path or do they truly enjoy swimming and playing with the tourist? [Michael Entity] Most Dolphins who are in positions of interaction with Humans adore the experience, but not always from the spiritual level that some tend to project upon the experience. Many "make fun" of the Humans and others know of the sexual "hang ups" among humans, so tend to push that level for humor. In short, Dolphins tend to find the experience comical and fun. [H2OSprtlvr] I know that dolphins are much more sexual and promiscuous than we humans are. Are we disrupting their sleep time or anything that they are on a mission to do? These tour groups go out daily to interact with wild pods of dolphins. [Michael Entity] To help you "see" the humans the way many dolphins experience humans, it might help to remember the kind of feeling and perception you may have for a fat puppy, ranging from his floundering attempts to walk or run, to his trying to do something complicated and seeing his "pride." [Kathryn41] hehehehehe [Ann] hehehe [H2OSprtlvr] very funny [H2OSprtlvr] so they see us as "cute and adorable" like a fat puppy. [Michael Entity] At worst, the dolphins tolerate the inconvenience, but we see no interference, at least within this particular context. There are other contexts in which dolphins and whales despise humans. [Kathryn41] understandable [H2OSprtlvr] no doubt [Ann] yes [H2OSprtlvr] and rightfully so. [Michael Entity] We will conclude here. Good night to all of you.
  10. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 031607 MICHAEL: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as requested. This is our perspective of the collective patterns in consciousness generated by collective choices and attitudes over a specific period of time. We will first look at the greater arc that spans April through June, and then more specifically the weeks of April. As many of you already know, the first three months of the year relate to an emphasis on the GOAL aspect of the energy of the year. As April approaches, the energy shifts from an emphasis on the GOAL/motivations to an emphasis on the MODE, or relationships. As a momentum begins to settle for the year, then the relationships within the life begin to take on priority and focus, which is natural as the MODE is a description of how one RELATES. Your relationships, then, become a mirror for how you are progressing in many areas of your life where there is space between "you" and "other." "OTHER" can be anything, including aspects of the self. And "you" can be any aspect of you ranging from Essence to the whole Personality to your SubPersonalities. Being aware of how you relate to others can give you a strong reflection of how you relate within various areas of your own psyche. EVERYONE and EVERYTHING to which you RELATE is a reflection of the world within you. ALL of it. The desires, the angers, the longing, the inspirations, the cravings, the lying, the betrayals, etc. ALL of it. When we speak of the YEAR's Overleaves, this does not, obviously, override your own Overleaves, but it does set the context in which you experience the shared world. So in a year with OBSERVATION as the Mode, you may find that, regardless of your Overleaves, you find you are more aware of HOW YOU RELATE than usual, because the Year's Overleaf is emphasizing CLARITY as part of Observation. For instance, if your own overleaf is PASSION Mode, you may now have the opportunity to CLEARLY SEE what it is that ignites your passion and how that shows up in your life. Over the next three months, it will be very interesting for all of you to WATCH how you respond to life, people, choices, and experiences. This extra boost of support for self-awareness can be truly enlightening. For most of you, this bout of self-awareness is with an emphasis on OWNING your choices, because the year's energy is already deep into DOMINANCE, and rooted in the Warrior energy. This brings about a "no-excuses" type of energy that allows more room for your personal clarity and honesty than you may have had in awhile. In other words, we see most of our students beginning to "get over themselves" now, and start to own who they are, make their choices, and say to themselves and the world, "HELL YEAH!" We realize that exclamation is about as excitable as you would ever see us, but we see it as a particularly accurate celebratory phrase that captures the ownership many of you are accepting within yourselves, and we have actually heard some of you already use it. The last part of March and into April will most likely be a transitional period for many of you where you deal with the issues of how relationships fit into life patterns and personal goals for the year. Within that transition, you will most likely be examining how you relate to yourself within the contexts of those personal goals, as well. This means a lot of Self-Karma may come to the surface in the weeks ahead. If you are already familiar with your Self-Karma, this is a grand opportunity of time within the year to begin finding resolution within those Karma. By this, we mean that your bout of self-awareness and clarity can bring the choices that would allow for resolution. Because of the support of energy within the year overall, you can own those choices and do your HELL YEAH celebration. For example: 1. You wish to stop smoking. 2. You continue to smoke. This is Self-Karma: the inner battle between two concepts that cannot be fulfilled simultaneously. In the next three months, this person might finally feel the strength and conviction to simple RESOLVE this Self-Karma by making a choice: 1. HELL YEAH, I am a smoker! I accept it! or 2. HELL YEAH, I gave up smoking! I knew I could do it! So our suggestion for keywords over the next 6 weeks or so would be: HELL YEAH! Commitment Conviction [Upst8] I hear ya! [freyaisis] "Hell yeah!" [cimmarron] Own it baby [Upst8] I will and will let you know [Michael Entity] As an extension beyond the energy report, it is not amiss to remind each of you that this IS your life. Yes, it is shared with others on the planet and this is a factor that must be considered when making choices, but this IS your life. It is not necessary to have permission, approval, or pandering as your inspiration for fulfilling your wants and needs. [Upst8] amen to that one! ;-) [Michael Entity] The more consciously one fulfills his or her needs and wants, the more appropriately accurate the sources for those fulfillments become. We do not in any way suggest that one should ignore the impact of his or her choices on others, but we do emphasize that the more consciously you choose, the more kindly you choose, as well. [Upst8] and that is most important to know and own that [Michael Entity] We note here as part of your energy report that March 30 appears to be a particularly turbulent day for many of our students and we do not know why at this point. We do not mean this is a "bad" turbulence, as many of you who have flown know that turbulence is simply that: turbulence. But it will not be surprising to us that March 30 carries a particularly "bumpy" ride through the day. This is due to a consciousness shift, but it is not a Nexus, though it is possibly part of the patterns that will contribute to the Nexus that appears to be unfolding for April 13 through 19th. We will now open the floor to your questions. [cimmarron] Hi again Michael. it is good to talk to you through Troy. My question: can you tell me a bit about Simon Peter when he was alive. I believe you said that he has not reincarnated since that life. [Michael Entity] The fragment referred to as "Simon Peter," if we are focusing on the correct fragment you have in mind, was a rather poetic, feminine, and theatrical fragment who preferred words to be nurturing, mothering, and direct, even if comical and playful. He was appreciated, yet resented, for his method of leadership and associations with positions of power. It seemed to many that he "did not deserve" to be in those positions, yet those same people felt the strong influences, as well. This fragment does not appear to have incarnated since he was known as the name by which you refer to him. [freyaisis] Hiya Michael. I am asking - How so many of us as Michael students 'now' Knew each other in the time of the Alexandria 'Mystery Schools' and how those worked then that could work again 'now'? [Michael Entity] It is true that many of our students were also part of the process of creating, sustaining, and grieving what is known as the Alexandrian Libraries and Schools. Most who were involved took the process very seriously and worked with methods that moved the consciousness painstakingly deep into the personalities of those lives to create unions and circles and associations that have now come to be known as WORK GROUPS. Each group "burned" an association with an animal into the consciousness of the time so that in future incarnations, those Work Groups could be drawn back to each other for further progress in studies and teachings related to what was considered so vital to souls and the planet at the time. The animal associations were what seemed to be the easiest and most enduring possible symbol for each group to recall, if such recall was found to be possible. For most, the recall has not been so successful, but for some, the recall is strong and the associations with the originally-assigned animal is strong, as well. Even if the recall is not strong, most of our students will know that there is a STRONG affinity to at least one animal, mythical or real, that seems absurdly strong, even if not meaningfully understood. These Work Groups are not related to our teaching, nor are they related to any system of math that we have shared. They are complete construction of those who were present at the time and we have been impressed that the recall has been as successful as it has been, even if not very effective. Some of this recall has been strong, or at least ignited, by one of the originators of the concepts at the time, who happen to be one of our channels. [freyaisis] Aha, 'not' related to this teaching after all. [Michael Entity] It would be more accurate for us to say that the information did not originate from us, but it could be said to be related, if one finds it meaningful to do so. [freyaisis] Thank you for that and the clarification, Michaels. [Upst8] What is next in the curriculum of the teachings? [Michael Entity] All expanding levels of our teaching will continue to be extensions of LEARNING HOW TO CHOOSE and CHOOSING HOW TO LEARN, and with that in mind, it could be said that "what's next" in our curriculum of teaching would be in the more specific dynamics of how not choose as a more than a simple form of navigation, but as a form of CREATION. Many of our students can grasp how one can bounce around through life and use choice as a fairly effective means of getting back on track, but much of life is still met with a passivity that allows room for Chief Features to dominate. Once the student truly grasps the magnitude of how choice exists, and can grasp the varying levels of choice that are occurring before, during, and after a lifetime, then the student can begin to grasp how choice can actually CHANGE reality before his or her very eyes, or shift positions of distaste into positions of empowerment almost immediately. Many of our "crazier" Old Soul students already grasp this, and while they do live rather eccentrically and out of synch with what is expected of those within your societies and cultures of earth currently, they truly grasp that their next moment is THEIR OWN and that everything that results from the thoughts, feelings, interpretations, and choices of that moment are THEIR OWN. There is no sense of interference to their choices beyond the calculated room made for the inherent assumptions and agreements of being physical. Otherwise, their Choice is experienced as magical, and not as a burden or regret. [freyaisis] most Wonderful [Michael Entity] We will conclude here. Good night to each of you. And if you are one of our "crazier" old souls who have been teetering toward a life of ownership of your choices, we suggest you adopt the mantra of the next few months as HELL YEAH! [Upst8] crazy [Michael Entity] That is, if you choose to do so. Good night.
