  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    PASSION

    *This is a summarized description using my own interpreted understandings and a mix of many quotes from Michael that can be read+studied in the source material below. Feel free to check in for updates, as more information may be gathered on this topic from newer sessions. PASSION MODE One in Passion relates to others through emotionally expanding his energy into and merging with his experiences and relationships; it’s about creating meaning in those and absorbing that created passion, love, energy, as a part of his identity, as a reflection+representation of who he is. Passion grows intimacy through moving away from expecting you to represent+behave like him(co-dependency), to learning more about you+himself through each other(co-creation), and it’s important for Passion Mode to feel he’s creating meaning in pursuing something. When in -Identification, he takes things personally, attaching to+losing himself in whatever experiences, beliefs, relationships, career, obligations etc. matter to him. These are no longer just people or things, but become symbols of his passion, representatives of him that define him: that he presumes ARE him. He may even be attached to idealized, craved, feared or rejected versions of himself. Identification constantly monitors how other people/things/events are expected to be extensions of him that must personally fulfill him or his relationship/goal, and validate his interests, wishes, and beliefs. So there can be high standards of behavior and conditions over how that behavior must be controlled around him, that if not complied to, may lead to implosion, explosion or shock. He may even feel certain conditions must be in place for him to be himself or find inspiration. Many in Passion will feel they have lost their passion, and become overwhelmed, empty and numb- but the truth is it is simply released into and identified with fears, worries, concerns etc. rather than creativity, intuition, integrity, productive efforts etc. This passion remains only as potential. To move from Identifying to Self-Realizing, Passion must use some Restraint to step back, and look at the whole picture, rather than just the moment that isn't complying to his standards of behavior. He must realize no one can define or take away from him and his potential, unless he deems them to, and that he has a CHOICE in how to relate to others and fulfill his intentions/goals. When in +Self-Realization, he learns about himself through everything, becoming more of who he is (growing into new, but never leaving out old, versions/layers of himself) through BEING what inspires him of his own potential and "feeds his soul". He knows that every experience can be a reflection that teaches him about himself. “What does this say/mean about me?” ”Where am I in this?” “How does this represent/reflect me?” Self-Realization regularly assesses how+whether he and his choices are truly representing and meaningfully reflecting his values, and desires for integrity+honesty in his relationships, goals and intentions. Passion is most attracted to the no holds-barred boundlessness of ideals+standards shared in a relationship, and to allowing room for the changes+fluctuations that living can bring to it. He's most wounded when he or you suddenly demands/expects standards of behavior to be met for a relationship to be meaningful; to heal, it helps to see if a relationship's past is truly unhealthy or if unnecessary+unhelpful restrictions are being imposed on a healthy one. -------------------------- SOURCE MATERIAL: Healing Relationships- Passion~ Behavioral Conditions vs Transcendence Modes and Goals- Passion~ Creation of Meaning Medium of Attraction- Passion~ Loss of Boundaries, Psychic Life, Representation, Reflection How Passion evolves Intimacy Understanding your OLs (Member: Luciana)- Passion & the Goal of Acceptance Member: Dawn- Essence Themes Member: Dawn- CF Report Member: Geraldine- E&P Profile Member: DianeHB- Passion Mode Stress Member: Brian- Passion in the 4th IM Member: Luciana- Perseverance vs Passion March 2002 Energy Report April 2009 Energy Report June 2009 Energy Report April 2012 Energy Report June 2012 Energy Report April 2014 Energy Report May 2014 Energy Report April 2017 Energy Report
  4. April 25, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested Energy Report. We will comment in general on May, and specifically on the dates between today, the 25th, and May 12. We have already commented in previous exchanges about the energy shifting into a focus of the Mode for a few months. This is still in effect and this simply means that most of the focus in your life will be in terms of relationships, including how you are relating to your life, itself. It appears a tremendous amount of “turbulence” is being generated lately for most fragments in their personal lives. This is, no doubt, due to the effect of the Passion Mode’s influence. Many aspects of relationship between you and Other, and you and your life, are under a slightly more serious scrutiny lately. This is the “phase” of Passion’s energy that will most likely put some things “against the wall,” or “in a corner” for you to determine if it is “worth it.” Things you feel are deeply reflective of your personal identity may be under a microscope, so to speak, and this will undoubtedly bring out hypersensitivity among many of you, regardless of soul age. This is an opportunity to either change what you have come to find yourself so heavily identified with, accept those things, or experience them with less identification. We remind you that “identification” simply means you have lost your boundaries between your experience, belief, or relationship, and find that those things DEFINE you, rather than that you simply express or experience them. If nothing else is considered over the next week or so, we would suggest noting the areas you find yourself more seriously defensive of, and find the joy in those things being a PART of your life, not being your life entirely. When we say this, we realize that in certain instances of defense, you may object that those moments are your “entire life,” but we say this as a description of the moment when you have “lost yourself” and feel an imbalance in the emotions around the subject in question. In other words, as a simplistic example, you may find that this is a time to free yourself from your REACTIONS, and find ways to RESPOND appropriately. If someone hates your Spaghetti you prepared for dinner, they hate the Spaghetti, NOT YOU. Wherever you find your energy or emotions or thoughts askew about a subject, you can rest assured you are having that area highlighted as a means to find a way to be more humorous and conscious about it. The next few weeks, and through May in general, appear to have a general instability. Though we do not predict, we can say that patterns have emerged strongly enough that the potential is high for AT LEAST a couple of major disturbing media events. As many of you may already know, an astrological event may be of significance to you around May 5. This time frame, too, marks the next major Nexus frame. Though the exact time of the Nexus will shift from Community to Community, it is safe to say that these shifts will occur after the 5th and all will be completed before the end of the month. This Nexus is a DIVERGING Nexus, meaning Parallels will be “spinning off,” rather than Converging. As we are not astrologers, we suggest exploring your astrologer’s interpretation of the events of May 5. In our terms, it is a shift that will put some of you a bit more at ease. These weeks leading up to that shift are all about your settling into your Platforms for the year. Since this Nexus is based more in Community, this means it will affect more your own home, family, relationships, and contacts, than it will mean anything major on your planet. That Nexus is later this year. We will take any questions about the Energy Report now, before Open Floor. [shelleyessences] Michael can you explain a little further about diverging parallels? [M_Entity] As a life unfolds, it is created through the Decisions and Choices of the Personality and Essence. Decisions are the “little things” that move you toward more pivotal Choices. Deciding whether or not to purchase a pound of coffee in the supermarket will direct you toward certain future Decisions, and eventually, the pattern of Decisions will build to a point of Choice. For example, purchasing the Coffee may have put you in the “right place at the right time” to meet a fragment with whom you share an Agreement. Decisions within that friendship may lead to a pivotal Choice as to whether to start dating or not. That major pivotal Choice will then lead you to more Decisions and Choices, all extending like “branches” from previous Decisions and Choices. DECISIONS do not necessarily create Parallels. CHOICES always do. At the point in which you make a CHOICE, the Choices “left behind” actually generate their own reality/dimension in which the Essence and a version of the same Personality can go without missing out on ANY Choice. A Divergence, then, is when fragments are entering a particularly heightened period of time in which they know some Choices within a pivotal context must be “left behind.” Thus, each Choice will generate its own reality. This can be disconcerting, depressing, and/or joyously freeing. A CONVERGENCE is when those individual realities become so similar they “rejoin” and combine their histories. [Kathryn41] Do you have any advice on how we can identify what our own individual platforms are for the coming year? [M_Entity] Yes, it is always a more personal and meaningful event to discover your Platform, rather than have it dictated to you from a channel. This is not to say a channeled Platform from us would be less accurate, but the personal process of looking at your own life can be quite invigorating and inspiring. To determine your personal platform for a time frame (in most cases, from May to April), we would suggest these steps: 1) During January through April, but especially in April, note as accurately as you can what theme you find to be behind your most distracting experiences. 2) When you have noted the theme, usually apparent through a list of symptoms blatantly experienced, identify the absolute WORST CASE SCENARIO of what you have the ability or inability to do within those symptoms. 3) In identifying your WORST CASE SCENARIO, then identify what VERY SIMPLE SOLUTION may alleviate the fear/stress of the theme. This VERY SIMPLE SOLUTION may or may not be something you truly “want” or find appealing, but you would be able to see it as truly being a Solution, at least to the anxiety and stress of the worst cases. 4) Find a phrase or word that best describes that Very Simple Solution, and you will most likely have an accurate approach to your Platform. [shelleyessences] Clarification please: on the meaning of “distract from your initial step.” [M_Entity] When we said “distracting,” we mean those experiences that seem to be taking you away from a larger, more appealing progression of your life. Of course, they are not distractions, as ANYTHING in your life that you experience IS your life. [MaryBV] There are no energy report questions left. [M_Entity] We will now move to OPEN FLOOR [ClaireN] What communal truths do we Americans have that are distinct from other countries/cultures? [M_Entity] Some of the more distinct Community Truths (which are merely clusters of shared Personal Truths), are: Be Friendly, But Not Intimate; Never Touch; Find Superficial Tastes as a Means to Identify Potential Mates and Confidants; Do Not Be Yourself, if the Risk of Loss is Too High; Never Reveal Too Much; Being Financially Responsible is a Sign of A Responsible Person or Family; Do Not Be Poor; It Is Better To Sacrifice Than to Be Happy; Family is Not Defined Biologically; Sexuality, Race, Gender are Adequate in Defining a Community. And more… [ShannonB] There is much in the national news right now, about pedophilia in the Catholic Church. By all accounts, it seems to have become a crisis almost overnight, when this has undoubtedly gone on for hundreds of years. What is bringing this issue to the forefront at this time? Is this just one more instance of a dogmatic religion crumbling under its own weight in the face of the new Soul Level? [M_Entity] Yes, Shannon, you are quite accurate in your perception. This is a major shift in perception of the “sanctuary” of religion as an unquestioned resource and authority. Baby and Young Souls would NEVER question the institution. Mature Souls, in their own internal questioning of where they fit in on so many levels, find it natural to question establishments. The recognition of personal, emotional boundaries is a hallmark of the Mature Soul, and some of the more Mature Souls have experienced these boundaries violated. The irony of Intimacy and harmony is that the path toward it is paved with identifications of very personal boundaries. Many long-standing institutions acting as authorities and leaders are being humbled as the Mature Soul populates the planet. This will allow the Church and Religion to possibly move toward a more genuine personal relationship, rather than as a political machine. [MaryBV] I have the burning desire to hear what the average day was for someone who lived in Atlantis during its zenith. What sort of technology was available at that time? [M_Entity] To describe an average day for any time period would be quite arbitrary, as each day would be quite different for so many fragments, but we will comment within reason. The civilization currently on your planet most like Atlantis at the time could be said to be some parts of Greece and Italy, as a combination of ancient and modern elements combine strangely and beautifully. Atlantis was primarily Early Young Soul, with a great deal of Baby Soul influences throughout the culture and expectations of behavior. This then, is quite similar to many societies familiar to you, especially the United States of America. An “average day” then consisted of participating in your very ritualistic and high profile spirituality. Spiritual practices were considered a means of identifying yourself and your sense of place in the community. Wealth was not as divided as is currently on your planet, but there were still those who had more than others, creating Classes of people. Inherent in the Baby and Young, of course, requires that division. As electricity could be said to be your theme of accepted and permeating technology currently, quartz generators would have been the equivalent in Atlantis. Both are similar in effect when used, but the uses of their ideas of quartz generators were far less stable and impractical at the time. Their use of quartz generators would be the equivalent of your Nuclear Energy currently. Both are profound sources of energy with eventual disastrous effects. [MaryBV] Large crystals on top of buildings? [M_Entity] And yes, there were large crystal panels within the architecture of that time. The use of Crystals in Atlantis was far less mystical than the New Age has described. Crystals as sources of energy are used in your own current technologies as similarly as Atlantis. We will note that what you call “dinosaurs” did still exist alongside humans of the time, though this may not coincide with your current interpretation of historical data. Great walls were built as a means to protect Atlantis from these creatures. These creatures were not hostile, anymore than a bear or tiger might be, but the dangers were there. There was a strong postal system and library system at the time, though the libraries of the time consisted of many contributors. By this we mean that individual households listed themselves as providers of certain material and this promoted a great deal of interaction among the Atlantean. Continuing with this subject will be more appropriate as a specific topic, but we share a bit of our perceptions from that time to contribute to your exploration. [LoriA] Has there been any discovery, as yet, of the manuscripts (for lack of a better word) that are hidden underneath or near the Sphinx? Will this information be available to the world in our lifetime? [M_Entity] No, there are quite strict laws from the locals preventing much in the way of new discoveries, especially discoveries that may contradict the determined interpretations of these landmarks. We cannot predict if any “manuscripts” may be found within your lifetime, but we can say that there is material that would overturn the pseudo historical assumptions long upheld as truth. Until the need to preserve the culture and society found to be so precious to those in power, any contradictions will be withheld or destroyed, even if found. There are many contradictions to the most mainstream and “scientific” of interpretations of the area made public, but these are mostly ignored or overlooked. It is always a challenge to replace a paradigm. We don’t believe any significant reinterpretations of these landmarks will come until significant contact with extraterrestrials is brought to bear. [sam-nemo] What is the source of petroleum oil? [M_Entity] The current understanding of the source for Petroleum appears to be valid. There are no means to verify this to conclusion currently since the process of creating the substance is the product of millions of years. The main theory is valid, nonetheless. Petroleum exists, as does Gravity, and both are similar in that they each are the validation of themselves. We will conclude here. Good night.
  5. January 3, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel State of the Planet THANKS TO MARYBV for Editing and Moderating! Thanks to ANNE for Moderating! Thanks to ALL of you who came! NOTE: This copy includes some clarifications and editing for the purpose of getting more information from Michael. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are present. We have been asked to address the “state of the planet” as we see it for your year 2002. Though a great deal of this will be extrapolation and probabilities, we will try to remain focused on the more contextual energies, higher probabilities, and how you can use or evade them. We will note here that it will also bear even more light on the effect of the Overleaves for a year’s time when you look at your past year’s Overleaves in retrospect. As we have announced previously through this channel, the Overleaves as they continue to stand for most of the planet at this time are: Priest/Discrimination/Passion/Pragmatist with Moving Center/Intellectual Part and the Chief Negative Features of Impatience/Martyrdom. The time frame of the year ahead will have the general context of Priest Energy and Moving Center. This means, overall, regardless of your ROLE in Essence, you may find yourselves determining your interaction with the world in terms of whether you are serving the Higher Good or not, whatever you or your Community Truths have deemed that to be. The ROLE and CENTER always set the foundation for the general context the world will be using as a medium of expression, inspiration, action, and assimilation. In this case, the year’s emphasis will be more on Inspiration and Action as the filter through which your life will be contributing to, or extracting from, the collective world. Considering the context of the Moving Center, this might mean that many of you will feel moved to literally take part in organizations, groups, outings, travels, activities, etc., as they relate to that collective “higher good.” This Priest-oriented year allows you to take a good, long look at what you believe to be the higher truths in your world and communities as you participate with, contribute to, battle with and/or create those very truths. In a Priest-oriented year combined with the Moving Center, you will find yourselves Physically manifesting what your own Compassion dictates, even if this leads to Zeal. Priest Years, then, bring serious examination of collective beliefs involving Compassion, Inspiration, and Zeal, and how you contribute to them, while a Moving Centered year will provide the medium through which this is all examined and experienced, either Productively or Frenetically. The Moving Center, then, creates a medium in the Physical Plane through your Body, your Environment (including your Pets and Plants you tend as part of your environment), your Physically intimate relationships, your Boundaries, Travel, Transportation, and Health. Of course, there are many more examples we could give, but these are fair enough. We will note here that ALL qualities of ALL Roles are inherent in ALL fragments in varying degrees, which the Overleaves emphasize or challenge in varying lives. Noting where your own Overleaves fall on their Axis in relation to the Cardinal Inspiration and Ordinal Moving will tend to indicate whether your own year will more “involved” in the world or not. Those who will be drawn into the “mix of things” of world or community events will first be those who are Priests/Servers and those who are Moving Centered, but those who have Growth, Passion, Spiritualist, or Saturn Body Types, and those who are Warrior, or in Submission, Perseverance, Cynic, or with Martial Body Types will play supporting roles in the unfolding of larger events, as well. The more your own Overleaves match these highlighted, the more “meaningful” this year will tend to be for you, whether in your personal life or in your experience of the world. In terms of high probabilities, we do see two “new” Priests taking the spotlight this year; fragments who have never been in the spotlight before, but are intending to play a vital role in the year ahead. One is an Early Mature Priest fragment currently living in South Africa, and the other is a Late Mature Priest residing currently in the North Eastern United States. These fragments have elected to take stances for peace that may or may not be implemented, but the effort and ideas will at least be strongly presented and considered. Some ideas are going to be controversial and upsetting, but most will agree it is time for these approaches, whether you do or not. Both Priests are Female. Interestingly, these fragments are not directly involved in Politics or Religion, as many Priests are realizing these fields no longer hold the respected stances needed for inspiration. We remind you that we are not predicting anything; we merely convey the current, higher probabilities, which contain as much possibility for change as anything Many of you will be continuing to deal with a familiar, yet uncomfortable energy as it carries over from last year: the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. Last year had much of the population in the context of the INTELLECTUAL CENTER, Moving PART, with as many in the Moving Center, Intellectual Part. This year should prove to be more confined to the specific contexts of the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. This looks to be a collective decision that “things DO need to change, but let’s THINK before we DO.” Last year resulted in a great deal of damage from those who were using the Intellectual, Moving PART as their force. In the end, the year found a great heaviness of depression and grief reigning as the Emotional Center energy was all but neglected. You may find the next year as exhausting on your emotions, as well, since there is little emphasis on the Emotional Center again. With the Priest Energy of the year, there will, of course, be a vague, higher context of examination in terms of Love and Empathy from the resonance of the Higher Emotional, but the results of that examination will most likely not feel fulfilling until 2003. So, once again, you enter into a year where the Emotional world could be left behind in favor of ideas, actions, and changes. Many of you may feel the impact of this rapid momentum of energy when it feels there is little time to really reflect before the next event is asking to be dealt with. A Moving Centered year moves quite rapidly in perception and this can be challenging to the Older Souls who are healthy participants in the world, yet wish for a “break”. 2002 will most likely seem to have pockets of emptiness and vague memory as many fragments “ride the energy” through the year in a “waking sleep” when they feel they have to. The Late Mature and Old Souls are most likely to find these gaps in memory, or find that the year seemed to have “disappeared.” These sensitive fragments are having a hard time coping with the world events as they are unfolding. Many of these Older Souls have already been through some of the most horrific carnage this planet has had to face in terms of human loss, war, and grief, so there is a great deal of inner repugnance, repulsion, and disturbance being brought up. “Learning your lessons” in areas of war, death, and harm does not make you apathetic; in fact it makes you much more “sensitive” to these very matters. Many may feel suicidal, depressed, angry, or unhealthy as they feel this intensity in the world currently is far “too soon” occurring and intentions for the life are being reconsidered for many of the parallels as to what to do. Those who genuinely do not find any benefit from remaining, will opt to exit within this year from the Older Soul community, or find magnificent, “magical”, “miraculous” events happening for them that tend to remove them from the collective events in some way. Though this reaction to the planetary growth is not limited to Older Souls, it is stronger in that group. Moving Centered years almost always bring a great deal of death in groups and bizarre disasters, along with extreme manifestations in the Physical Plane, for better or worse. For instance, more “advances and breakthroughs” in the biology and medicine worlds will be announced, with a great deal of emphasis on cloning, of course. This year will also bring to light some new, amazing modes of transportation that have not caught on yet, along with a marketable home robotic “maid/butler” that will most likely be controversial. “Terrorist” attacks will continue to plague the US and Europe, though primarily in the US where it will continue to be confusing as to whether these are related to the extremists of Muslims or simply domestic exploitation for personal causes. We do see a great deal of the attacks coming from “within” and being completely unrelated parties, with a stronger intent than ever to create a civil war. The first three months of your year are in the context of Discrimination. Last year had most of the year focusing on Acceptance issues, while this year will focus on refinement and clarifying of what you have discovered are just not acceptable at this point. This will be the year where more collective communication is required in highly sensitive areas where groups are standing behind their rejection of certain aspects of life and society. The first three months now will be in taking a serious, somber look at what really isn’t working for you in life, either collectively or privately. Most of this will be in the context of what work you are doing, how much of your energy is involved in your life tasks, and how your interaction with the world contributes, as we said, to the “higher good”. These first three months may seem quite rocky to some of you as the energy is implemented and stabilized, but by April, the intensity of scrutiny and defining of boundaries should be eased. Those who consciously work through these energies will most likely find themselves in what would seem to be a “better”, more sound place in their life and material world. Those who resign themselves to overwhelm, or are simply not interested in dealing at all, may find themselves feeling rejected, isolated, and on the fringes of a rapidly-moving year. This is not a rule, of course, nor is it a means to “scare” you; we merely comment on the general possibility of how fragments may react. April through June will focus more on the MODE of the year, and the Goal will have taken footing by then. This year, April through June looks to be the most exciting, volatile, and erratic as fragments find passion for will now start to be indulged in. When you reach the phase of Passion Mode, many will find this time to be where the emphasis is on your most intimate relationships and how “true and meaningful” they are in your life. Considering this is a Passion year, the examination will be on whether you are actually developing more of who you are by being in these relationships, or if you are simply identifying with that person and use them to superficially define you. Neither is good or bad, but the latter will be less comfortable in a year of Discrimination. Relationships will have their struggles during that period of time, and we would suggest keeping this in mind as you unearth all the reasons to remain with or leave your friends, work (coworkers), mate, etc. Try to remind yourself that by bringing knowledge to the surface about what you are getting/receiving from your interactions is simply an opportunity to clarify what it is you want and need. This can be approached, first and foremost, through communication. If there is no ability to communicate about what you want/need, then a more definite decision will feel pressured into needing to be made. April through June seems to be bringing with it a couple of potentially strange natural disasters or accidents, including a most devastating tidal wave to a major city. Humans are still not learning the benefit of keeping population down, and with the recent disasters, the Instinctive Centers of many are scrambling to create even more babies as a life-affirming act. This is not good work, but that is a lesson every species will tend to at some point. Until that area of responsibility by a Species is consciously dealt with, the Instinctive will always opt to leave a life, than to threaten the collective Species that houses Essence through a Cycle. When the population of a Species begins to threaten its own survival, then larger groups of fragments exit in more bizarre and unexpected ways. July through September brings some Pragmatism as the “year-to-date” gets examined through the collective Attitude, or perspective. Those who have created a momentum through the year in the negative poles will now take root in their actions with a severely dogmatic approach. If any violence between groups is going to occur on a larger scale, it will most likely be at this time. Last year found the Cynic Attitude coming to the forefront of perception, ironically from the POSITIVE POLE. We remind you that the Cynic sees the OTHER sides of whatever seems to be the obvious. In the recent tragedies and grief, a great deal of “love” and global camaraderie found its way out from the original denigration of a few. We suspect the same may occur this year, as those who are dogmatic will be faced with those who are truly practical in their perspective of the world. This practicality could create systems that work to appease even the most disgruntled. And quickly, the end of your year will come with the continued energy of Impatience (Intolerance) from last year, while Greed is now replaced with Martyrdom (Victimization). Greed cannot work this year, but highlighting all who are victimized and/or intolerant can work with the other energies being generated. We note here that the Chief Feature part of the year does not necessarily mean that energy will manifest, but that it may simply be the issues and fears of the collective that have the opportunity to be addressed. We will discuss more about these Overleaves as the year progresses, but we realize your time is limited with us tonight and we are here to respond to your questions, as well. We also realize we will not be able to address all of what this year has in store with its probabilities, but we can at least provide this basic picture. [nemo-sam] If you can see the future, then can you see the past the same way, if you are outside of time? [M_Entity] Yes, we can “view” the past, but it also has probabilities as much as the future. Depending on your current position within your life, your “past” may be a particular timeline that has elements which are NOT a part of your “original” timeline. Some of our Older Soul students may even have the unusual, but natural, experience of “remembering” TWO or more completely different versions of the same event, even within one lifetime’s memory. This can happen individually and collectively. Time, as it is relative to a Personality, is more like the Personality is continually at the hub of a large wheel of probabilities, with as many “spokes” behind as there are before. “Turn the wheel” and you have a new set of probabilities, past and future. [ShannonB] What is the likelihood of armed conflict breaking out in India and Pakistan this year (in this parallel), and is it likely that nuclear weapons will be involved? [M_Entity] The likelihood is quite high at 47%, though the use of Nuclear Weapons only stands at 13%. Though the conflict could be diverted, we have seen the probabilities continue to move toward stronger, armed conflict. The knowledge of Nuclear Weapons being able to be used is sometimes enough to transform a conflict into negotiation, but in a year of potential rejection, identification, and zeal, the odds are higher that someone, somewhere, will want to destroy, rather than compromise. [Annette] Could you please comment on the economy in the United States in 2002? Will we be financially affected by world events (negatively or positively)? [M_Entity] The economy in the US appears to be on a staggering momentum, creating a constant scare, but never truly plummeting. We see the next year as being similar to the past year, though a bit more intense and anxious. The US is “smart” in its collective energy and though the world may appear to be falling apart at times, a large group of Young and Early Mature souls will continue to generate creative, fun, and meaningful prospects for the country. World Events will actually affect the US in “positive” ways because the US will continue to try to work with all governments in creating a more global “village,” than to simply remain in power. This “global village” concept may make some fragments nervous, but the intent is not an overtaking of the world with a single leader or government, but rather a commitment shared between nations that is geared toward compassion, prosperity, and peace. [MajickKat64] What sort of further terrorist attacks are likely in the US this year, and in what states might they most likely occur? [M_Entity] We continue to state that the Mid Western United States are the most vulnerable. There is still energy indicating several large hostage situations, building bombings, and airline disasters. Fear, though, is far more powerful than a bomb, so smaller incidences to create insecurity and panic seems to be the decided method, such as the poisoning of a small town’s water supply. Though this kind of action would be contained and diverted rather quickly, it can be a powerful method to create fear. Even our mentioning of it could do the same, and that is not our intention at all, but this is how powerful these images are. New York City and its mass transit and strong communications are still vulnerable, along with Chicago, and San Francisco. Please note that we are responding to your question, we are not predicting. These events have not come to pass, nor are they inevitable. They are the probabilities that have remained consistent and we share them because we are asked. They are not shared to create fear. Some of you already know this information as your intuitive selves can feel the validity. [Leela] In what country/city is this tidal wave a possibility? [M_Entity] Japan is most vulnerable, though areas south of Japan might be more involved, along the coasts of China, around Shanghai. Alternately, India has a high probability, as well. Either would be created from a devastating earthquake along a fault line in the deep sea. [MajickKat64] Ok thank you, will you briefly comment on the success of the new EURO? [M_Entity] This is one of the more innovative and practical steps toward the sharing of resources and values equally. This is a mature soul concept that will continue to struggle, but only in terms of its understanding. We do believe it will remain and the concept will spread to the US, as well. As more and more of the world thinks Maturely, so will the unifying means of exchanges. In most of your futures, there is a common currency across the planet, as well as a common clock. We will also note here that a great deal of your most positive changes in the world probabilities will come from Early Mature and Late Young Souls as they are both still quite aware of the material world, while striving for peace and equality. Striking that balance as a move forward for your planet is no small task, but one that is helped along when communities seek to understand the proposed changes and benefits. Good Night to all of you. We will “flesh out” the report in a more comprehensible and useful way with Troy so as to have a reference for validation in the year ahead. We conclude here.

    Energy Report: JUNE 2012

    ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2012 JUNE moves the exploration of the Mode for the year into its height of emphasis, drawing with it some amount of closure before shifting emphasis to the Attitude in July. This year’s Mode has been described as Passion Mode, which means that June might have a strong and clear emphasis on either the Positive or Negative Pole of Passion now, depending upon the work done over April and May in clarifying relationships of significance. When we we refer to “relationships” here, we include all forms of relating, such as those made with locations, environments, careers, people, animals, the body, health, etc. If you can describe yourself in relation to something, then you are either relating, or in a relationship. As mentioned above, the emphasis now might be toward the Positive or the Negative, or toward Self-Actualization, or toward Identification. To know which way you may have come to lean, one would need to assess one’s level of attachment. Self-Actualization is a process of bringing oneself into action (or actuality) from what was once only potential. Identification is a state of being attached to an actuality, or symbolic representations, of past potential. Identification is a means for avoiding or rejecting new potential, and isolating oneself to what one has come to determine as familiar for representing or fulfilling the self. This is not a “bad” thing, but it does exclude a great deal of the self, especially in terms of its direction, potential, and evolution. It is similar to the effort made to walk in the opposite direction of an escalator so as to get back to where one felt most comfortable and content, instead of moving forward toward a new floor of exploration and possibility. For those who have moved toward the Positive Pole or Negative Pole, we think there may have come to be some rather obvious and significant moments over May that thrust your sense of comfort, potential, and identity into consideration. For those who moved toward the Positive, this may have felt like an opportunity for renewal, redirection, or an implementation of dormant or forgotten potential. For those who moved toward the Negative, this may have felt like an imposition, a blow to your identity and to your sense of comfort, causing you to retreat or react in ways that were protective and maybe even isolating. As this is a King year, the opportunity would most likely come in ways that are directly relative to the Physical Plane, but because this is an Emotionally-Centered year that is hooked into the Instinctive Center processes, we think the experience would be less about the details of the Physical Plane elements, and more about the prompt to access and use the emotional/inspirational strengths of the self amidst the stirring of one’s Instinctive reactions of fear vs desire. For most of our students, June appears to bring with it either a settling into old patterns that are comforting and familiar that support one’s sense of Identification or attachment, or a shift into implementing new, experimental, risky, and uncertain patterns that help to Actualize, unlock, recall, or even to heal one’s potential into something tangible. Of course, these moments of opportunity for actualizing oneself are always available, and there is no deadline for taking advantage of them, but in terms of the “energy report,” there is a collective wave of support for moving more easily into one direction or another, in terms of your Passion, regardless of your Overleaves. Helpful thoughts over JUNE might be: 1) TREAT, or RETREAT? As opportunities for actualizing your self into your world come up, even if unexpectedly, or with some amount of upheaval, do you wish to turn those opportunities into a treat for yourself with a fresh perspective, renewed enthusiasm, creative problem solving, or do you use these opportunities as a prompt to retreat away from possibilities and to dig into familiarities? Again, neither choice is good or bad, but retreat does tend to come from defense and fear, which may tend to block your capacity for seeing your own potential, or the potential of your relationship with something or someone. 2) DID I MAKE A CHOICE TODAY? As June unfolds, or as life unfolds, for that matter, there may come days when you feel that much of the day is beyond your control, defying your wishes, and disappointing you. Those experiences are valid, and they are real, but there is always one tool that you carry with you in your day that can make an immediate difference: CHOICE. It will still matter that your day is beyond your control, and it is still valid that this may not be easy to flow with, but it will also still matter that you make a conscious choice. At some point. About anything. That day. Acknowledge that you, at least, chose your lunch. That you chose your direction home. That you chose to smile when you would rather not. That you choose to persevere, that you choose to uphold your integrity, that you choose to Love. And on, and on. As you acknowledge even the simplest of your choices, your spectrum of conscious choices expands into your awareness in a way that helps you to understand that you are a major part of your life, and not a pawn in it, or some kind of floating debris. If you find that you did not make a conscious choice that day, and you do not feel inclined to do so, then THAT counts as your conscious choice for the day. And you will choose again the next day. And the next. DATES OF INTEREST JUNE 6th - a minor Divergence (branching of parallels) Nexus that helped to explore the area of “Passion” that is most relevant to the individual, and how that might move into actualization or identification JUNE 20th through JUNE 22nd - a fairly significant Convergence (combining of parallels) Nexus as a means to close the emphasis of exploration of Passion, and to carry that forward into the emphasis on the Attitude of Spiritualist, which we discuss next month.

    Energy Report: MAY 2012

    ENERGY REPORT
 MAY 2012
 MAY continues deeper into the explorations described by Passion Mode for the year, with its emphasis in the arena of Relationships, or in how one is relating, regardless of with what that is. This is one of the reasons for why Platforms transition at this time, as they are greatly about how one is Relating.
 [NOTE FROM TROY: Platforms describe a yearly context of exploration that is set up by Essence that describes a theme of interest to extract from experiences during that time period; this doesn’t mean we have to do anything special, but knowing what our Platform is can help us understand some of those themes we may find ourselves drawn toward.] Relating is a valuable context for learning and evolving that extends well into the highest of Planes, for as long as there is any sense of differentiation on any level between the self and other, or within the self, however vast that sense of self is, there is Relating. Oneness is not a loss of the capacity to differentiate; in fact, it is the capacity to do so without losing that truth of Oneness. Even “you,” as a Being “in” a body, can differentiate your arm from your leg from your cells from your organs, etc, and still call the totality of those parts “you.” This is really no different from the perspective of profound Oneness as experienced upon return to Tao. In terms of Overleaves, Modes describe the medium through which Relating is explored. In highly simplistic terms, and as relevant to this particular report, the 7 Modes could be described as:
 Reserve: Relating by refining your emotions Passion: Relating by freeing your emotions
 Caution: Relating by refining your thoughts Power: Relating by freeing your thoughts 
Perseverance: Relating by refining your actions Aggression: Relating by freeing your actions Observation: Relating by observing and using the Mode most appropriate for the occasion In broader terms, the above also describes how one eventually fulfills one’s Goal. Passion Mode is the medium of relating without emotional boundaries, without emotional inhibition, without apology, without self-consciousness. Passion is a means of expanding the sense of self, internally and externally, by recognizing the whole as being scattered among parts that are ultimately resonating. Being able to lose one’s defenses, boundaries, and inhibitions is not the same thing as losing one’s sense of self, or one’s sense of differentiation. The Positive Pole is Self-actualization, and the Negative Pole is Identification, which describes that spectrum of Relating that extends between losing oneself and becoming oneself. Regardless of one’s Mode in the set of Overleaves, a collective atmosphere, if you will, is still something that would be in effect for those who are participating in the world. In other words, whatever your Mode, there would tend to be a pattern of exploring relationships and relating at this time, and it may be in a context of exploring boundaries, resonance, group inspirations, and a freeing of one’s emotions. We see for our students that May would tend to be far more contemplative than active, in terms of Relating and Passion, so this may not be an obvious pattern. The key would be, however, in the fact that contemplation is aimed at how better to relate, and how the best and the worst is still a part of the wholeness that is understood as the self.
 Helpful thoughts over MAY might be:
 1) I CAN BE, AND STILL BE ME As one contemplates relationships and how one relates internally and externally, it can be easy to lose oneself in that contemplation, and begin to consider various facets of the self as being better or worse for use in relationships based on how challenging or rewarding they may be. In other words, many go through life fragmenting the self so that it can exist and relate strategically, but eventually the fragmentation dissolves into faceting. It is far more rewarding, freeing, and whole to sustain a consistency of consciousness among the facets of “who” you are, than to divide them into fragments that must then spend great amounts of energy and time recovering and healing.
 2) CONTEMPLATION IS ONLY A PART OF INSPIRATION As we mentioned in the previous Report: Inspiration is generated from within, and then reflected around you. What you find inspiring is a reflection of what you know as potential, value, honesty, integrity, clarity within you. What you find inspiring is a means of creating a circuit between your inner and outer world, but your inner world is not dependent upon extracting potential, value, honesty, integrity, and clarity from other people or things. It is important, then, to remember that when you move into a state of contemplation, or Concentration, that it is a part of how one recognizes what is Inspiring, but it is only a part of it. The usefulness of it requires your application of it.
 DATES OF INTEREST
 MAY 11th through MAY 13th - a Convergence (combining of parallels) Nexus as a means to solidify and build upon that which was realized in the previous convergence in April.
 MAY 30th - A minor Divergence Nexus that would appear to move out from “this” parallel the relationships that are no longer mutually benefiting or serving.

    Energy Report: APRIL 2012

    ENERGY REPORT APRIL 2012 APRIL marks the shift of emphasis for the year into the explorations of the Mode, which is Passion this year. The Mode describes one’s method for pursuing the Goal, and for how one relates and interacts. Passion describes the process of freeing the Emotions/Inspiration as a means of achieving one’s Goal and relating. This freeing of Emotions results in an expansion of the self and Essence in a way that encompasses anything within the range of attention and focus. In the Positive Pole, this is Self- Actualization, or the process of becoming more of who you are through this encompassing energy. In the Negative Pole, we find Identification, which is the process of losing oneself through that same encompassing energy. As April unfolds, there may be a burst of this Passion energy for our students that comes out of nowhere and surges through in a way that may feel quite nice, especially if the year has not been so invigorating so far. For those who have been fatigued, down, and rather flat as the year has begun, this surge may almost feel electrical, and while it may feel better than the flatness, it may also be a bit jarring and nerve-wracking. For those who have started the year energetically and feeling good, this Passion may not be as obvious, but simply help sustain a momentum. Regardless of how Passion shows up, for most there will begin a shift of emphasis away from accomplishments and intentions for the year (Goal), and toward attention to the quality of experience related to those general intentions and directions (Mode). In other words, the WHAT begins to include the HOW. In this case, the How is Passion. This means that there would now come to be an assessment that considers how Inspiration and Emotion may be blocked, ignored, unwieldy, etc. Passion tends to turn its attention toward reflections and representations. It begins to ask, “What does this say about me?” “What does this mean about me?” “How does this represent or reflect me?” “Where am I in this?” This kind of questioning leads to an assessment of one’s integrity, honesty, and clarity of the self and Essence in the intentions and relationships. When Passion Mode is healthy, it is a regular assessment of the self and its integrity, honesty, and clarity as it moves itself through relationships, goals, and intentions as ways to reflect and collect parts of the self. The more clearly and honestly this is done, the more one generates inspiration and emotional fulfillment, and this becomes a kind of circuit of benefit for all involved. When Passion is in the Negative Pole, that assessment shifts its attention toward others, to things and events, and becomes a constant monitoring of how those are expected to be extensions of the self, instead of reflections. For instance: a Positive Pole Passion Mode might make dinner for a loved one and let that dinner simply reflect his or her honest and clear intentions to fulfill a practicality, or to express love, or to be nurturing, and if that loved one likes the dinner, or does not, has no bearing on what that dinner reflects about the self. A Negative Pole Passion Mode would lose his or her sense of self in the dinner as it becomes an extension of the self. The sense of self is now hooked into, and dependent upon, whether the loved one likes, enjoys, rejects, praises, the dinner. The dinner no longer represents or reflects the self, but IS the self, and the value and meaning is then forced upon the dinner and the loved one to uphold. And so it is that over the April, May, and June, our students may begin an assessment and exploration that looks at one’s integrity and honesty in relationships and intentions, and determines if these are valid reflections of the self and Essence, or if they may be imposed extensions of the self. As you explore over the next few months, it may become obvious to you if you have imposed yourself upon others, or into intentions and things, as extensions of yourself, expecting them to comply and fulfill and validate your sense of self. It will then be up to you to free them from that imposition, and to bring them back into being honest reflection of parts of you through which you become more, become self-actualized. Helpful thoughts over APRIL might be: 1) BECOMING MORE OF WHO YOU ARE DOES NOT MEAN MAKING OTHERS BECOME YOU As you move through Passion Mode, allow room for everyone to represent and reflect themselves. Anything, anyone, and everything can be a reflection and representation of you, but when you begin to expect them to be extensions of you, Self-actualization takes a backseat to the panic of Identification. When your world is presumed to be only extensions of you, there is no room for anyone else. 2) INSPIRATION IS A MATTER OF REFLECTION, NOT EXTRACTION Inspiration is generated from within, and then reflected around you. What you find inspiring is a reflection of what you know as potential, value, honesty, integrity, clarity within you. What you find inspiring is a means of creating a circuit between your inner and outer world, but your inner world is not dependent upon extracting potential, value, honesty, integrity, and clarity from other people or things. It is helpful, then, to embrace your own potential, value, honesty, integrity, and clarity because that is when it begins to show up all around you in your world, helping you to become even more of you. DATES OF INTEREST APRIL 1st - APRIL 3rd - a Divergence (branching of parallels) Nexus for those who have some versions of the life ending in some way, where “the passion has died.” APRIL 25th - APRIL 29th- A Convergence Nexus with an emphasis on reunion, community, and a leap into exponential expansion of potential through meaningful group dynamics.

    Energy Report: JUNE 2009

    note: every year has a pattern of energy that can be described as a kind of "personality," so the energy reports are Michael's interpretation of that energy using the Overleaf System; these are not predictions, but merely observations of momentum and pattern generated by actions and choices, similar to how weather patterns can be observed and reported.] We described May as a "slippery" month that could be experienced much like a roller coaster. We described it in such a way as to capture the combination of releasing an attachment to control and a move into trust, because as much movement and twists and turns as there may be, you are still "on track." The experience may have seemed swift to some, and slow to others, but the point would still remain that May might have encouraged a trust in your self and those who are in your life, even as they seem to throw you off course. June marks the end of the emphasis on the energy of the MODE of Passion. In the month that transitions between emphases, the energy can show up as amplified or muted. We see the pattern as becoming amplified. The Mode emphasizes relationships and Passion is the medium for the relationships. In our system, Passion describes the spectrum between Self-Actualization and Identification. On the broader end of the spectrum, Passion describes how one becomes more of who he or she is through their experiences in relationships (which refers to relationships with anything, not just people), and on the more restricted end on the spectrum Passion shows up a an attachment to symbols that have been deemed representative of how one sees oneself. With the amplification we see for June, we would think that most of you will be exploring the more restricted end of Passion (negative pole: Identification), looking more closely at what you have installed in your life as symbols of your identity. Many of you may not know what those attachments and symbols are until they are shaken from their foundation, so to speak. As they come up for examination, we would suggest an effort away from reaction. We would usually say that for you to react, or not, is your choice, and whether you do, or not, is still a valid choice, but we point out here that a reaction, while still a choice, is an anatomic choice, which simply means that it is a reactionary navigation for protection of the body. When one's identity is threatened, it is quite easy to fall into reactionary levels of navigation, shutting down, withdrawing, recoiling, flinching, running, passing out, etc. So while it is technically still a choice, it is not a conscious process of choosing, but a protective/defensive process. That kind of navigation is important in life, so we do not suggest that it is a "bad" thing; we can say with confidence that many of you, in one life or another, or in one situation or another, saved yourselves from harm through the use of your anatomic levels of choice. In this case, however, that kind of reaction may be triggered, but it has little relevance in terms of threat. It is simply a shaking up of the symbols to which you have grown attached. These symbols can range from your relationship to the public (reputation), to your relationship with money or career, your relationship with a spouse or loved one, your relationship to your future, your past, etc. It is anything that you feel strongly represents your identity. It is those things that one may find either falling away, or at least up for examination as a means to not stifle your identity by being so attached to the symbols that there is no room for evolution. Of course, for many there is no sense of necessity for conscious evolution and this is a valid path. In those case, the shaking may not be obvious, or if it is, the symbols will be immediately replaced or put back into place to secure the personal identity. In that regard, the choice is yours. Evolution of consciousness can only be slowed, never halted. For those of you who choose to do so, awareness can be brought to your topsy-turvy month and when/if your attachments and identity are shaken, you can then use that opportunity to examine just what those symbols mean to you in terms of your sense of self. Understanding how much of "you" may have been invested in, or lost in, the symbol may shed light on where your "wheels have been spinning," or how you have slowly, and possibly unconsciously, moved your life into a sleeping pattern that has lost its sense of inspiration. KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR JUNE What we can suggest for those who resonate with this report is to keep a keen eye turned to any area of your identity that seems to be shaken up in the weeks of June. Make a note of what exactly has happened, delineating it down to a Symbol and what that Symbol Means To You. The Symbol may be tangible, or it may be a concept, but the Meaning will most likely be glaring. There is really nothing more to do than to have an conscious conversation with yourself from there, to decide if this has become an anchor against your evolution, or if it is working just fine. Keep in mind that an anchor against your evolution can be as subtle as contentment. If you find that you are/were "content" with Symbol and its Meaning, you may have simply become resigned to it. True Contentment would feel as if life is moving in a direction you had envisioned, whereas Resignation will have felt like a long pause with the vision you had once held seeming further and further away. Keep in mind that the Symbol is not the problem. It does not have to be removed from your life, and it can be replaced rather easily if you find it has fallen away, but rather the Attachment to the Symbol that can be problematic. Once you have assessed what is true for you, your next steps and choices would most likely unfold far more clearly and with a return to a sense of vision and improvment of self on more levels than before. As June unfolds, the more consciously one explores these upsets and shakes in this light, the more easily and quickly a shift back toward Flow (the Goal for the year.) June 21st appears to be a Nexus [a shift in collective perspectives] themed in CLARITY. This clarity comes from the movement into the energies of Summer and the Attitude for the year, which is Idealism. We will speak more to that in July, but as the end of June comes around, a sense of higher perspective, vision, and a clarified pattern may come to light for many of you. If June feels as if one is suddenly "in the dark," July would be that movement back into light. June 21st may be that shift that brings just enough "light" into your perspective so that shapes can be seen again, and a sense of navigation can return. We will add that many of our students, while acknowledging the impact of the shocks and shakes of June, may be pleasantly surprised at their strengths, patience, resourcefulness, honesty, and relief when they realize how much of themselves was being lost in these symbols, and the joy of having a sense of return to wholeness. KEY PHRASES FOR JUNE MIGHT BE WHEN I FEEL I CANNOT SEE WHAT'S AHEAD, IT'S OKAY TO TAKE TIME TO LOOK INSIDE MY LIFE HAPPENS FROM ME, NOT TO ME WHEN PARTS OF MY LIFE or IDENTITY ARE SHAKEN, IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO RETURN TO BEING "ME" AGAIN
  10. DanielaS

    Energy Report: APRIL 2009

    April marks a shift into the beginning of emphasis on the MODE for the year, which we have described as PASSION. Keep in mind that the MODE in our system of Personality is the component of Personality that is used for RELATING, whether to your personal goals, your career, your fears, or other people. The MODE describes how one finds oneself connecting and generating resonance with something within or beyond the concept of "I." PASSION MODE, then, is about breaking down boundaries between "other" and "self" as a means for actualizing the perceived potential in, between, or of self and other. Passion Mode could be said to transcend the Intellect since there is no need for reason, explanation, or precedence to simply "know" when something resonates with you, or that has meaning for you, or that you perceive it has some bearing on how your soul or personality is represented or fulfilled. Passion is at the root of compassion and empathy, and it is also at the root of Inspiration, since Passion Mode is focused on fulfillment of potential in self and other. In the positive pole, Passion shows up as SELF-ACTUALIZATION. Self-Actualization is the process of discovering, creating, or recognizing the transcendent needs of self or other as a means for fulfillment of potential. In the positive pole, Passion inspires, generates clear perception, imbues compassion, and encourages evolution and uniqueness. In the negative pole, Passion shows up as IDENTIFICATION. Identification is a lack of fulfillment of personal potential, but an attachment to that which represents or symbolizes that fulfillment. The emphasis moves toward generating a sense of specialness, holding fast to that which represents that specialness, focusing on having this false sense of fulfillment corroborated. For example, one might bring passion to the creation of a dinner meant to inspire romance or happiness between self and other, encouraging a fulfillment of potential that is unique between the two, but other does not praise or corroborate the potential represented by the meal since he or she did not necessarily enjoy it. This lack of enjoyment of the meal has no bearing on his or her enjoyment of the potential for romance between the two, but the person whose passion as moved into Identification now sees the rejection of the meal as being a rejection of the self, or potential. The meal was simply another spaghetti meal to "other," which has no relevance to his or her attraction or desire for the person who made the dinner, but since this dinner was not seen as special, the one who created it now diminishes and withdraws much potential from the relationship. Identification encourages constant external validation, specialness, blind faith, pride, defensiveness, and confusion. Knowing how the spectrum represented by PASSION might come to play in the months ahead can help one to move into trust, inspiration, and fulfillment and away from faith, attachment, and disappointment. When relating to others, self, and life in the months ahead, some key considerations might be: THE WHOLE IS MADE OF PARTS, and while it is fair to tend to these parts, to lose oneself in any one part is to lose the sense of wholeness. This sense of division within self, between self and others, or life, is painful. We do not mean to encourage you away from this experience, as it is simply a part of the spectrum of experience in life, but we do encourage your capacity for choice and awareness in moments that you find you have become fragmented and identified with a PART, giving you at least the option for choosing a higher perspective. I AM REPRESENTED BY WHAT I CREATE and CHOOSE, but I AM NOT JUST WHAT I CREATE and CHOOSE. This is an extension of the statement above, so once an event, relationship, or thing is created or chosen, it is no longer "you," it is a PART of you. This includes the range from the best to the worst of your creations and choices. All creations continue to some extent to be the responsibility of the creator, but they cannot be contained or constrained, and no one choice or creation can ever truly represent the whole of who "you" are. This is good to remember when relating to others in the months ahead, since this can alleviate the inclination to condemn another person for one act, choice, or creation that may have affected you. Passion energy can help to transcend the limitations of symbolism and attachment and to perceive the whole of another person, or self. I AM NOT SPECIAL; I AM UNIQUE. We have spoken on this subject before, but the months ahead will be good for observing how one might lean toward the rallying and manipulation of corroboration and emphasis from external sources to confirm ones specialness, depending entirely on others to define your meaning and identity. Uniqueness is something you ALREADY ARE, and this has to be explored by you, and fulfilled by you. Whether anyone ever recognizes this uniqueness, or not, has no bearing on the validity of this uniqueness, whereas specialness does not even exist without constant false validation and praise of a specific quality with which one has identified. Uniqueness is an effort toward wholeness, and Specialness is identification with a part. Having these key considerations in mind can help one to choose more consciously when dealing with relationships in the months ahead, and in how one internally relates to oneself and soul. Beyond this, April kicks off a bout of inspiring energy that ties nicely into the Goal of the year (FLOW) and begins to show up as our students feeling a pleasant urge to "get out there," to "do something," but with fluidity and non-attachment. Creativity, positive attitudes, and a new sense of potential might be seen all around in the months ahead. What we describe is not a prediction, but a high probability based on patterns we see unfolding, though these could just as easily shift toward the negative poles we described above, with defensive attachments to symbols and a fight for specialness and identification with the portion of a group that has fallen into division. To help navigate the month ahead, a gentle statement could be brought to mind when sensing a move toward the negative poles or toward painful attachments, defensiveness, or condemnation: I AM THE PART WHO CHOOSES WHOLENESS. This is a play on words that will allow room for fragmentation, which is natural, but with a shift toward inclusion of a higher perspective.

    Energy Report: JUNE 2014

    ENERGY REPORT June 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) JUNE closes out the emphasis of exploration on PASSION as the Mode of the year. This does not mean that this element will no longer be relevant, but only that the shift of emphasis would come in July toward the Attitude of the year. All of the “overleaves for the year” are in effect all year, but there are these “seasons” when each are explored with some emphasis. As June unfolds, we see that there is likely a move in one of two distinct directions for most of our students: One direction is that of a continued launch into enthusiasm, focus, and a rich sense of motivation fueled by a sense of the self opening up to more of the self, blossoming, if you will; a sense of direction and momentum. The other direction would likely, eventually, find its footing in the above, but looks to start off in June as a distracting plummet in enthusiasm, distraction, disorientation, a daunting sense of probabilities, and possibly a numbing look at one’s concerns about defeat and resignation in facing the future. For those who start off with the leap into enthusiasm, June will likely ride out like a generally busy, productive, and familiar month, but for those who start off with this disorientation, it is important to understand that you have likely begun to activate emphasis on the Attitude for the year, which is Realist. Realism can be harsh, especially for those who do not have the Realist Attitude. If you have activated a combination of emphasis on Passion and Realist, it is likely because you know there are patterns that need to be broken in your behaviors, your choices, your relationships, etc. that do not reflect you properly. You are taking a realistic look at what is ahead, what you can do versus what you expected yourself to do. A vision for the future can be an excellent guide, but not if one’s feet are not paying attention to the path. This sharing of emphasis on Realist and Passion is mostly among those students who feel they were coasting along, “hoping for the best,” or “trusting the universe,” etc. This is kind of trust is valid and vital for parts of the life, but it is also valid and vital to be responsible, to own your part in the equation, to participate, to not just aim for accurate representations of yourself, but to be one, yourself. If you have come to coast into June and you continue to coast with enthusiasm, you probably do not have the Self-Karmic struggle with the gap between your visions and your implementation of your vision. If you came into June and found yourself in a slump, disoriented by a vague and haunting sense of limbo, you are probably just taking a Realist’s look at what you are doing, where you are going, and if it truly represents you. And most importantly, you are likely assessing if you are representing yourself with integrity, or if there are areas of your life where you feel disconnected, dishonest, disjointed, yet continuing to try to function from habit or routine or presumptive momentum. If this is not addressed, then the “season” of the Chief Features that is emphasized over October through December could be rough. You are probably responding to your sensitive, intuitive, and intelligent impulses that are suggesting a shift, refocus, slowing down, clearer look, etc. is in order. This is Good Work. If you relate to the above, you are simply working to resolve the differences between what you unintentionally imposed on yourself as an expectation, whether a deadline, pattern, or focus, and you are simply expanding into realistic terms those same expectations. It does not mean you must deny or toss out your expectations, but you must create room in your life for Realistic nuances, leeway, leniency, and paths. Let yourself have this room, and then return to your enthusiasm and direction. If you choose to do so, of course. DATES OF INTEREST June 03 - 08 -- NEXUS - DIVERGENCE - For those who experience this branching off of the self into parallels, this shift is a rather sharp halt to many variations of the self who are not willing to participate in, or contribute to the nuances, adaptations, and variations on the practice of creating the life. By “sharp halt” we mean this is a fairly literal sense. In this case, these parallels are more conceptual than tangible. They would not take form. Parallels diverge as ideas, then emotions, then take form in the tangible way one would tend to think of as a parallel dimension, but sometimes the self with the idea branches off in a way that does not “take” and it just absorbs back into Essence. For the “you” who is you, we suggest this be understood most easily as a way of cleaning out your Intellect of ideas for branches of the life that would just not work. June 21 -- ENERGY SHIFT - MALE/FOCUSED ENERGY EMPHASIS - For those who may have felt a sense of drifting and then the work of returning to some sense of direction and focus, we think this date would be a general pivotal point for feeling “back on track.” HELPFUL THOUGHTS OVER JUNE: “A WRENCH IN MY PLANS JUST MEANS MORE TOOLS FOR ME” - When your life plans, expectations, directions, focus, etc. are thrown off, your work to respond to this is a part of your evolution, and adds to the depth of your capacity for creation. It is never about having been wrong, failed, or punished. It is always about learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn.

    Energy Report: MAY 2014

    ENERGY REPORT May 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY continues the exploration of PASSION as the Mode of the year. As May unfolds, it looks to us like there would be a growing uneasiness regarding the quality of Passion in the lives of our students. On the surface, there is a “business as usual,” but a slow-burning questioning of the passion regarding relationships, pursuits, living, and any other thing to which one feels he or she has been giving, receiving, doing, being. This can start to feel like an uneasiness because most of life has a kind of momentum that allows one to simply fill in the blanks of the day, fulfill the routines, do the work of being, giving, receiving, but when Passion is involved, or when Passion is questioned, this momentum shifts to a kind of self-consciousness. This is like the skilled person who can easily walk a balance beam until he suddenly “thinks about it” and then his balance is thrown off. Breaking the momentum of your life can be quite disorienting, even for a brief period of time, especially when there may not have been anything specific to have brought this about. It may have come about as a cumulative effect of choices having been made so far, or it may simply be a moment of reflection that makes you question, throwing you off balance briefly. Those who are native to Passion Mode as part of their own Overleaves know this process fairly well; this extension of the self into nearly every part of the life to such a depth that a contraction is generated as a means to birth the self to a new level, direction. Passion Mode acts like a microcosm of how Universes behave, expanding into everything, contracting into a single point, exploding again into expansion. This process is not so literal, but it is a fair description. For those not familiar with Passion as a Mode, this year offers up a look at where you are in terms of how your life, your relationships, your directions, etc. represent you, and then this contraction and expansion begins. The contraction can feel strange because Passion is so naturally expansive, but that capacity to expand is entirely dependent upon one’s capacity to contract, to collect the self together as a whole before spreading out again. If you choose to work with the collective energy of May, then allow May to bring those days of contraction, those days of recoil, introversion, agitation, disorientation, doubt, rest. This is not a “bad thing,” but a natural thing. For those of you feeling it the most, it is likely that you have probably expanded yourself out to the point that you have lost a sense of your center, your core, and this contraction may seem depressing, sad, or even confusing, but it is just you, settling back into you for a moment. Helpful thoughts over MAY might be: LET YOURSELF COME HOME In this month of varying contraction, it is just you, collecting you. If you choose to do so, let this be all that it is. Hold yourself for a moment. Just love you for a moment. Just let it be okay for a moment that not everything is okay. Just let it be okay that you have no clue for a moment. Let yourself own all that is you for a moment. In so doing, the passion in your life can then go back out into the world in a way that represents you more meaningfully, and serves you and others in more meaningful ways. DATES OF INTEREST May 17 - 19 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - a subtle or obvious haunting, distracting sense that how you are doing things may need to change. This convergence would help to bring in those parallels where you may be doing things differently in a way that matters more to you. May 21 -- ENERGY SHIFT - AGITATION/VOLATILE - As the effects of the Convergence settle in, there could come to be a sense of agitation, defensiveness, and even a volatile temperament as one begins to expand again in a way that is intended to clear out obstacles and blockages to more meaningful Passion.

    Energy Report: APRIL 2014

    ENERGY REPORT April 2014 2014 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Priest (emphasized all year) CENTER: Intellectual (emphasized all year) GOAL: Growth (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: Passion (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: Realist (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience (emphasized Oct - Dec) APRIL begins the shift of emphasis into the Mode of Passion. When the year shifts in emphasis to the Mode, then relationships tend to come into focus, both internally and externally. When this emphasis is internal, it begins a phase of questioning one’s direction, intentions, personal focus, value, meaning, position, perspective, etc. This is a process of taking stock in what one is bringing to the life, and how this may be improved upon, altered, redirected, revitalized, etc. It is a phase where one tends to become more aware of how one represents one’s self, intentions, etc. And then this, of course, expands to include how one relates to others, and how others relate to you. Another way to understand the shift into the emphasis on the Mode is that it can mean a tendency for some point in April to mark a fairly clear shift away from the questioning of WHAT one is doing to the questioning of HOW one is doing. Social interaction can tend to become a marker for when that shift comes into full swing, with more Agreements, interactions, communication, planning, projects, implementation of ideas, etc coming into awareness and focus, With Passion as the Mode this year, it would tend to come as a refreshing wave of enthusiasm and excitement for leaping back into participation in the world, with others, and moving out of the hibernating phases of the Fall and Winter (in the Northern Hemisphere). Passion means bringing oneself out of oneself and creating a circuit with those things, events, and people with whom one is interacting. It is about how one represents oneself, how one realizes oneself in the world and to others (and to the self). In the Positive Pole, this shift will show up as a wave of Self-Realization, which means that it becomes important to those in Passion to be fairly and meaningfully represented in his or her choices, actions, relationships, and endeavors. Even if you are not in Passion Mode, the Passion Mode of the year will likely show up in your life as some kind of renewed enthusiasm and energy for being out in the world in some way as a means to be more of yourself. In the Negative Pole, this shift might show up as being attached to versions of the self that were idealised, feared, craved, rejected, etc. and then embarking on a process of confronting those reflections of the self in your relationships and pursuits. Self- Realization is a process of inclusion that knows one never leaves out all of the variations of identity even as one evolves into a greater spectrum of identity, whereas Identification, the Negative Pole, is an attachment or anchoring to one version of the self that refuses to include any evolutionary changes. Identification works in other ways, as well, but we are sharing this particular angle because it is relevant to this initial shift into Passion. Some of our students may come face to face with a breaking point, a turning point, that MUST move into a state of Self-realization for the life to feel alive again. In other words, it is the realization that even the worst of yourself, or the worst of a loved one, MUST be included, not escaped, as a part of moving forward in one’s evolution. As April unfolds, those entering the Mode from the Negative Pole may have to come to terms with his or her past, or the past of a relationship, and simply allow it to be, or to at least be included, as a means to feel the vitality, enthusiasm, and Passion that is in the air, so to speak. Helpful thoughts over APRIL might be: HOW YOU ARE IS WHO YOU ARE It is true that there will always be an inner core of you that may never fully manifest, or be known, to any particular individual while incarnated. It is true that there are often variations within that make it difficult to consider who one is in terms of identity. But while you are in a body, in Personality, there is one consistent way to bring that internal range of identity into form, and that is through the HOW of who you are. That is the function of the Mode. You may be a jumbled chaos of variation and shifts within, but you can always choose HOW you are when relating to another. You may doubt your depth of compassion, for instance, but this matters far less than whether you employ compassion as best you can when you can. It matters more in that instance that you chose compassion than it will matter that you spent 30 years wondering if you are compassionate enough. You may doubt your capacity to love, but the instance that you choose love is more powerful than all of that doubt. You may have made terrible choices in the past that haunt you, but your choice NOW is what makes you “who” you are. The past will not disappear, but it makes a difference if how you are now is more to your liking. Over April, then, keep in mind that everything you choose to do, to feel, to think in terms of how you are is representing WHO you are, and this can be shaped consciously or subconsciously. It is your choice. DATES OF INTEREST April 05 - 09 -- NEXUS - CONVERGENCE - This is another wave of merging parallels, but these appear to have been branched as far back as one’s childhood. We would not be surprised if many of our students experience dreams bringing up symbols or memories from both childhood in this lifetime, and those past lives that may resonate. This merging of parallels from “so long ago” may likely bring a wave of nostalgia and reminiscing over April, May, and June. April 24 - 28 -- ENERGY SHIFT - BOOST/CRASH - This shift appears to bring with it either a tremendous wave of enthusiasm and invigoration of ideas and intent, or may find some students recoiling and crashing into a quietude and healing. If you are in the latter category, it is merely an indication that you may have moved forward too quickly without truly feeling as if you have caught your breath, carrying forward the confusion that came with the start of the year. Let yourself take this downtime, relax, breathe, and LET (not force) the focus return to you.
  14. NYC Live: 08/10/2011 On 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.
