    The 7 Modes

    People have requested me to bring back my descriptions of the Overleaves in the last 3ish years. Whenever someone brought up how they helped them, I shed a tear inside because I like that stuff I write can help. It's a bit sensitive for me to repost them publicly, but I am pretty done living in any sort of fear as a default, so I'm gonna bring them back. These descriptions are my own summaries of all compiled information on the Modes. Modes are that part of us that describes how we relate. It also describes how we go about life. Are we Reserved? Passionate? Cautious? Powerfully present? Persevering? Aggressive? Observant? That's the Mode talking. The Mode tends to only show up in Intimate situations. Where we are very close to others, we open up the Mode to seek common ground on deeper levels. Even when we seek to get close to a goal, we are using our Mode. Because the Mode is so vulnerable, it can be wounded easily, and each Mode is prone to particular patterns of wounding that will be described below, as well as their path to healing. --- RESERVED MODE One in Reserved Mode relates to self/others through being acutely aware of your feelings and the energy fueling them, but selective of what emotions you choose to release, share or use in any relationship, pursuit or experience. You grow intimacy through processing it gradually, in layers/sips at a time, rather than diving in all at once. (Reference: How Reserved Mode evolves Intimacy) This is because it’s important for you to have some kind of picture, history or “point” behind choosing an experience: to see that there’s meaning to be found in pursuing it. (Reference: Reserve Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Reservation is INHIBITION. The Positive Pole of Reservation is RESTRAINT. -Inhibition comes when you try to ignore, reject or repress emotions that overwhelm and exhaust you, while also protecting those emotional states that are fueling you, from running out, by solely focusing on them at the expense of all other emotions. (Reference: Reserve Mode elaboration) This happens when your capacity to manage the spectrum of your emotions is depleted, leading you to feel far too much about that as they come up. Those in Reservation can feel a strong need to control, contain or resist feelings then. -Inhibition can also come when you simply can't see or anticipate any meaning from pursuing a relationship or experience, so you cope with internal struggles over this lack of inspiration. You begin to function on "automatic pilot" in your interactions, as you inhibit your output to the point of feeling invisible, cutting off any and all inspirations, emotions or impulses that seem too much to handle. SLIDING When you fall into -Inhibition, you begin to -Identify and long for the potential of something not yet fulfilled, losing yourself in your attachments, cravings, idealization, fears and experiences. To move into +Restraint, you must +Self-Actualize, bringing out the potential and meaning you wish for in your relationship, experience or pursuit by BEING that and CREATING this new sense of meaning in your life. You can also work on simply seeing and perceiving your life with +Clarity, taking a whole perspective of the meaning of each part of your relationship and life right now. Instead of simply -Surveying the potential meaning of those and letting that inspiration "pass by" in ways that further inhibit, repress and reject your sense of inspiration to feel closer. A shift into +Restraint means you find strength in building and reserving your emotions to release, share or use them when it’s most efficient, relevant or necessary to. (Reference: Reserve Mode elaboration) In doing so, you don't overwhelm yourself or anyone else with so much feeling you/they struggle to manage and process, but can find and share what matters most in any experience or relationship with elegance and ease. You control and choose how you experience & manage your feelings and inspirations then, and so you're much more aware of what's most important to share as inspiration for yourself or another to draw from. (Reference: Using Reserve Mode's Positive Pole of Restraint) When something feels meaningful and inspiring then, you are able to build upon that meaning incrementally, uncovering more inspiration bit by bit as you unfold your sense of intimacy or achievement. (Reference: Reserve Mode pursuing Goals) ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE RESERVED MODE: Your Reservation is most attractive to others for being able to draw out a focus on parts of their soul (sub-personalities, memories, past life connections etc.) for exploration and healing. As Reserve gets to know others through their Centering, it could be said you attract to any Common Ground in the Roots or History of another, relying most on finding a shared past to relate through and identify with. You can feel most wounded then when you find the past is becoming meaningless, or let the past eat away at you, or carry burdens and baggage from it that constantly strip away the point, meaning and significance of your experiences/relationships now. So suddenly (or gradually), you begin to bury the gifts & potential of the present under loaded feelings of resentment, regret, apathy, struggle, obligation etc. To heal, it helps to Deal with the Past; to deal with all the things you've ignored, rejected, denied, repeated, embellished, projected, inherited etc., and realize that it's the power of your choices in this present moment, right now, that build, develop, heal, grow and nurture the meaning of both the past and future. You may not be able to change the past, but you can change your perception of it, and relate to others from there. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships and Reserve Mode and Relationships) PASSION MODE One in Passion Mode relates through merging with any relationship, experience or goal that means something to you, fully letting it become a part of your identity: a part of who you are. It is about fully realizing and creating whatever sense of meaning and potential you feel/see in or between yourself, others and the world. You grow intimacy through moving away from expecting others to represent and behave like you (Co-Dependency), into learning about one another through each other (Co-Creativity). (Reference: How Passion Mode evolves Intimacy, Goal of Flow and Passion Mode and Passion vs Perseverance) And as you already feel you're living inside the whole picture of life, it’s important for you to feel you’re creating meaning, history or “the point” along the way to pursuing something. (Reference: Passion Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Passion is IDENTIFICATION. The Positive Pole of Passion is SELF-ACTUALIZATION (aka. SELF-REALIZATION). -Identification comes when you let your relationships, experiences, obligations, behaviors, beliefs, careers etc. define your identity; LOSING YOURSELF in these people/things that matter to you and that represent aspects about you, your past/future & your life that you deeply crave, idealize, fear, avoid, reject etc. (Reference: Stress for Passion Mode and April 2014 Energy Report) Identification sets High Standards and Conditions of behavior and potential that you feel you or others must meet for experiences, achievements and relationships to be meaningful. As such, if you or others don't fulfill, corroborate or comply to these standards, then you take it personally as if a blow to your identity, and shock, implosion or explosion can result. So if say, you cooked up a dinner for your loved one and they did or did not like your dinner, then you assume they must love or hate YOU as well. You've lost yourself and your boundaries in the dinner, hooked into monitoring other's every acceptance or rejection of it as a way to validate your specialness and value/meaning. (Reference: Passion Mode) Ironically, when Passion Mode can't create meaning & inspiration in your relationship or pursuit, you can begin to feel overwhelmed, empty and numb, and you can feel as if you have lost your Passion. In actuality, you've only become identified with your fears, projections and defenses, feeding those feelings instead of your sense of love, meaningfulness and creativity. SLIDING When you fall into -Identification, you begin to -Inhibit your full range of emotions and inspirations, closing down your relationship or goal’s true range of potential by locking it into only your own myopic expectations and standards. To move into +Self-Actualization, you must use some +Restraint to step back from your deep attachments and investments, and look at the whole picture, rather than just the moment that isn't complying to your standards of behavior. This can help you to realize that no one can define or take away from you or your potential unless you deem them to, and that you can CHOOSE how to better manage your emotions & relationships. You can also bring +Clarity to your self-actualization by choosing to see and involve all the meaningful parts of your relationship and experience. This spectrum of parts can inspire you to participate more in life, rather than just leave you feeling defined as a disconnected and meaningless -Surveyor of everything. A shift into +Self-Actualization means you feel inspired to push forward and learn from your experiences to become more of who you are. In doing so, you FIND YOURSELF & discover more about life through every relationship, pursuit and exchange, growing into new identities along the way, but never leaving out old versions of you. (Reference: Stress for Passion Mode and April 2014 Energy Report) You bring more of your authenticity and unrealized potential into the world, by assessing how or whether you're truly representing your being/passion accurately in life. So you ask questions like: “What does this say/mean about me?” “How does this represent or reflect me?” “Where am I in this?” to self-reflect on your place and identity. (Reference: Passion Mode) Passion Mode recognizes the inherent lessons & love learnt in getting to know, relate and exchange with others/yourself, and in the +Pole allows room for the fluctuations, depth and intimacy that living with others and yourself brings. So now if you cook a dinner for a loved one, whether or not they like it doesn't mean love is lost or found between you. It only means they did or didn't like it, and your intention, love and passion behind cooking is not gone, as the dinner reflects you but it doesn't define you. (Reference: Passion Mode and Passion Mode (different article) ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE PASSION MODE: Your Passion is most attractive to others for how much you absorb into anything, or absorb anything into you. Passion is often sought out because you inspire others to use their life experiences as fuel for growth, or you fulfill their longings to be absorbed and consumed by someone/thing they identify with, to the point they can somehow disappear from living their life responsibly. As Passion is attracted to the no-holds barred boundlessness of shared ideals & standards in a relationship, finding Common Ground through Imagination, it could be said you bond/bind to the soul of another. You highly resonate with the evolving Awareness that people continually grow through all of the challenges, dynamics and lessons they learn in life. This means you can feel most wounded when there are sudden demands or expectations of behavior you or another impose upon one another for your relationship to be meaningful: limiting your boundless soul connection and capacity for growing together. (Reference: Passion Mode and Relationships) To heal, it helps to detach and look back to the past, to remember what's gone into the relationship, so you can see if that past is truly unhealthy and warrants new behavioral standards from you or another, or if unnecessary and unhelpful restrictions are simply being imposed on a healthy one. By freeing yourself and others from any Conditions you may have placed on them, you can start to open up to creating a more inspiring future for the both of you; returning others as being reflections of you and your life that can teach you to be better, rather than limiting definitions of your potential that lock you into being worse. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships) CAUTION MODE One in Caution Mode relates through refining how you think of your relationships and experiences. It is about how you deal with the form others express in your relationships. (Reference: May 2011 Energy Report) You grow intimacy through building your sense of confidence, inner security and safety when with others, and it’s important for you to clarify your intentions in pursuing something while revealing yourself or letting others reveal themselves, at a personal pace. (Reference: Caution Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Caution is PHOBIA (aka. AVERSION). The Positive Pole of Caution is DELIBERATION. -Phobia sets in when you form irrational and extreme aversions to anyone/thing that triggers you, as you seek only to recoil and distance from or explode and destroy those "triggers" because you feel unable to further refine your thoughts about those things (aka. analysis-paralysis). (Reference: Phobia vs Deliberation and May 25 2015 Michael Speaks: Transforming Chief Features) You simply and often refuse to take responsibility for what you've allowed to happen or created/expressed in your relationship or experience, that doesn't represent your original intentions. So your over-thinking of the form things are taking in that relationship/experience begins to scare you, leading you to lash out, freeze or shut down. (Reference: Caution Mode in Older Souls) Caution has a built-in sense of Identity-Integration with others, as you easily and often secretly connect and resonate with the form others express to you. So when you feel that comfortable form you've attached to has been lost, or you can't monitor your expression around that person/thing you're bonding with anymore, you can breakdown into Phobia/Paranoia as you secretly desire sources of familiarity and safety again. SLIDING When you fall into -Phobia, you begin to -Oppress yourself or others, in the sense that you rise up with heavy thoughts, beliefs and expressions that seek to restrict, squash, force and conform you or your triggers into more disempowering and distanced stances. To move into +Deliberation, you must return +Authority over the impact your thoughts and expressions are having on you/others, owning and taking responsibility for that. Or at the very least, removing yourself from any triggers to create a safe space for doing this. This then allows for the Presence of new, more healthy thoughts and ways of relating to form, as you breathe and find a clearer peace of mind. You can also return a sense of +Clarity to your overworked thoughts by choosing to see and understand the truth of your whole relationship/experience as best you can. Rather than letting your phobias distance you into a disconnected and fearful -Surveillance of everything. A shift into +Deliberation means you slow down your thoughts so you can consciously consider the intentions & rationale in how you relate, navigate, nurture and understand your experiences and relationships. This then helps you sort through your life to form very specific standards & parameters for what and who you actually have an interest in relating to, and how you wish to relate to those in the first place. When you've clarified your intentions behind why you're creating/allowing a relationship or pursuit in your life, you begin to feel "safe" in that structure and can build upon revelations as you relate more and more. (Reference: Caution Mode and Healing Relationships) And rather than fuel the instinct to fight, flight or freeze, you form relationships and goals with much deliberation, carefully selecting thoughts and expressions that consider fears but discern between the truth of the matter and the unwarranted fearful triggers: allowing sensibility and insight to evolve. (Reference: April 2015 Energy Report) ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE CAUTION MODE: Your Caution is most attractive to others for providing a space of safety where all involved can comfortably express themselves as they are, nurturing a state of trust in life/each other because you all understand where each other are coming from and going. However you're attracted to finding any Common Ground in Motives/Motivations, as you get to know others Goals, admiring how resonant and complete they are. By knowing others intentions, you can safely let down your boundaries and relate. (Reference: Caution Mode and Relationships) This means you're most wounded when you suddenly feel paralyzed and unsafe in a relationship, unable to "let your guard down", or feeling that the intentions & motivations that once secured your comfort in a relationship have been completely lost or destroyed. To heal, it can help if you display who you are, what you want/need and what you believe in at this moment, so you can attract others to share the same and discover their motivations as well. This would help you create/return to a Sense of Safety, even if it isn't the state you initially desired, because you can clarify to the best you can any confusing intentions, and choose how to nurture the relationship from there. (Reference: Caution Mode and Healing Relationships and Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships) POWER MODE One in Power Mode relates to self/others through freeing your thoughts, ideas and expression about those things to feel heard, seen and in control of your life’s place and direction. Power is about owning and exuding a Confidence and Presence in who or how you are, as well as what you believe in. It is about the form you take in your relationships. You grow intimacy through how much of you can be present, permitted, allowed etc. from yourself or others without shame or silencing, such that you can stand up & show up as who you are. (Reference: Power Mode and Intimacy) It’s important for you to prove your intentions behind pursuing something while fully displaying who you are at any moment. (Reference: Power Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Power is OPPRESSION. The Positive Pole of Power is AUTHORITY. -Oppression ensues when you feel compromised, insecure or lacking in your sense of presence, place, belief and confidence, feeling diminished, insignificant or invisible in your relationship/experience. So to counter this, you can impose and enforce your thoughts, ideas and expression onto others to restrict, control, fracture and otherwise manipulate their form, beliefs & expression into something you feel is less powerful: drawing power/presence from that as a way to feel more heard, seen and secure. (Reference: More on Power Mode) Or -Oppression might show up in you/others imposing and enforcing thoughts, ideas and expressions onto you, in ways that seek to restrict, control, fracture and squash your sense of and capacity for self-expression and confidence. (Reference: April 2013 Energy Report - Power Mode) This leads you to conform your thoughts/expressions in the presence of any person or thing you deem has more power over you than you do, and so you give away your sense of power & presence to life/others, because you're dependent upon or seeking for them to give you permission for expression. (Reference: Power Mode in Older Souls and More on Power Mode) Both of these are disempowering, as you convey anything else than you as being responsible for your state of thought, power & presence. SLIDING When you fall into -Oppression, you start to use all thoughts, ideas and expressions you/others have, to reinforce your -Phobias that you're being rendered diminished, insignificant or invisible. So you're unable to control the way you or your life/relationships are oppressing you, and now freeze, fight or flee from their oppressive expression out of aversion. (Reference: Power Mode means Confident Presence) To move into +Authority, you must slow down and bring more +Deliberation to how you feel about and convey your thoughts and expressions about things. When Oppressing Others that would mean owning how you've interpreted their expressions/presence as having deliberately affected you when they truly may not have even intended to. And when Oppressing Yourself, that would mean you just choose one way/form/context of expressing yourself without compromise, rather than not express yourself & your ideas/intentions at all so that others always seem to have more power than you. You can also return a sense of +Clarity to your relationships by developing greater communication with them so that you may honestly see, understand and work with their thoughts and intentions, shifting away from an oppressive -Surveillance of everything that leaves you feeling continually diminished, insignificant and invisible. A shift into +Authority means you begin to manage the impact your thoughts, ideas and expressions have on yourself & others in honest, considered and self-responsible ways. (Reference: Power Mode means Confident Presence) Instead of enforcing your thoughts/expressions onto yourself & everyone else in ways that conform and disempower parts/people, you compose contexts, perspectives, relationships and events where all parts/people involved can feel empowered to express themselves with confidence and share authentically. (Reference: April 2013 Energy Report - Power Mode) This then allows all parts of the whole to feel more present, secure and comprehensive in how they present themselves and communicate their beliefs, helping you to see how all parts/people can share resources and ideas that build upon each other to form cohesive, meaningful goals, networks and relationships. ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE POWER MODE: Your Power is most attractive to others for revealing insight into and helping them recognize and comprehend their place in life. You have a capacity to help consolidate people’s disparate, fragmented truths/ideas about themselves, others and life into more cohesive, empowering structures of thought, expression and perspective that make sense and feel whole. Considering this, Power gets to know others through their Attitudes, their personally validated perspectives, beliefs and life philosophies; attracted to any Common Ground in Confidence. (Reference: Power Mode and Relationships) As such, Power Mode feels most wounded when there is deceit, dishonesty or some form of contradiction to what was expressed as true but acted upon differently. This can leave you with trust issues in your capacity to know what's true, or to let another in to your life. So you might attract to those who have false beliefs, high insecurities and undefined perceptions of life so that you can shape their thoughts around your ideas, reason with & oppress them to falsely empower you. Or you might conform your thoughts and expression around those people that are "bigger", to feel power in “empowering” them, because they make up for your lack of capacity or permission for feeling powerful, whole and confident in yourself. To heal, it can help if you develop trust & confidence in yourself, who you have proven yourself to be, and what you have proven yourself to believe- knowing another's expression of their truths can never hurt your sense of trust in you. This means you say with great Honesty, how you feel, even if it's not true for others, and let others say the same even if it's not true for you. That Honesty is paramount to Power Mode. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships and Power Mode and Healing Relationships) PERSEVERANCE MODE One in Perseverance Mode relates through taking your goal or relationship one step at a time, steadily moving from Point A to Point B, getting the job done, always progressing and producing results. There's a strong emphasis on getting back up and never giving up, not on getting knocked down. You grow intimacy through constantly assessing the value of one's actions or lack thereof, and the way one moves and interacts through their body to make their actions count. So as such, you live and die by the motto that "actions speak louder than words". (Reference: Understanding Perseverance) Because of this strong call to action, it's important for you to always complete your pursuits in life too. (Reference: Perseverance pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Perseverance is UNCHANGING (aka. IMMUTABILITY). The Positive Pole of Perseverance is PERSISTENCE. -Unchanging occurs when you constantly confront obstacles in your relationships and goals, and are only focused on knocking down, pushing forward/into, or clearing away those obstacles in the way of your path until they’re overcome You determine a path, and for that to change, alter or be disrupted only means everything you aim for will be lost. So you sense no movement/progress can be made until the obstacle is removed, and resist all other experiences and changes beyond this focus. (Reference: More on Perseverance Mode) In this sense, Unchanging isn't about moving forward, but holding yourself and others back because things are always “in the way”. It is about locking everyone into their flaws/insecurities and not letting them grow until they show some kind of acceptable remorse, guilt, shame etc. for what they have or haven't done. It can even be a way of projecting blame onto others and making them obstacles, just so you can avoid your own insecurities, weaknesses and excuses for what you have/haven't done. (Reference: Understanding Perseverance) SLIDING When you fall into -Unchanging, you begin to create patterns of -Belligerence as you have no concern for the effects of your actions, simply plowing forward & spiraling into chaotic or scattered relationships, goals, and directions, or feeling run over by the effects of others doing this to you. To move into +Persistence, you must allow for +Dynamism in your relationship/experience. In other words, the road to completion is not a straight line, but includes how you manage and respond to and use to your advantage, all of the fluctuations, surprises, changes, diversions and unknowns along the way. All of these dynamic experiences do not actually distract from or impede your progress, but instead help supply the resources and fuel and interest for you to persevere. You can also bring +Clarity to the obstacles as simply being a part of living and relating, seeing them in relation to your whole life and relationship, and understanding where they’re coming from. Rather than just -Surveying them with an unchanging stance that they’re just another obstacle in the humdrum of life. A shift into +Persistence means you let these various obstacles contribute to your experiences, goals and relationships. You're able to navigate with, through or around them- while also knowing you, your path and any obstacles on it can change and evolve along the way. The road ahead is alive and ever-shifting to one in Persistence, and so you simply see all experiences you move through in your heart, mind, body and world as necessary parts of the long-haul and long-term strategy; responding to them as necessary & openly embracing them for their meaning once you get to where you're going. (Reference: More on Perseverance Mode) Persistence is about truly moving forward, with all of your flaws, insecurities, frustrations etc. So you learn how to carry everything and keep on keeping on, but you draw the line if that's ever harmful. You no longer despise weaknesses as if they’re obstacles, but heal, unite and transform them into strengths, while valuing the same stance of responsibility and vulnerability for ones weaknesses from others. (Reference: Understanding Perseverance) ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE PERSEVERANCE MODE: Your Perseverance is most attractive to others for reflecting their strengths and weaknesses, especially those that are based in what one does or doesn't do (which can be superficial or deep). Perseverance however, is most attracted to strong physical presence, to any confidence and self-esteem one shows through their Body Type. So you tend to find most Common Ground in Appearances and Behavior. (Reference: Perseverance Mode and Healing Relationships) This means you can feel most wounded when anything physically meaningful changes in the relationship, such as your or their indiscretion, cheating, ill health, lack of productivity etc. that renders either party lacking in physical presence. You also despise weaknesses, insecurity and excuses that are used to avoid action, so if you or others compulsively act this way, it can become quite a sore spot that calls into question the value and strength of your relationship. To heal, it simply helps if you or another does something about this, Taking Action so that the direction taken on your paths can be rebuilt. Physicality and Tangibility are important for healing Perseverance Mode. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships) AGGRESSION MODE One in Aggression Mode relates through initiating, managing and organizing many directions of focus, activity, progress and movement in your relationships, goals and experiences. This is a Mode that relates most through the value of purposeful action and brings a constant sense of how all parts are moving together like a grand Orchestration. You grow intimacy through how well others can "keep up" without faulting, taming or slowing you down for your constant changes of focus and direction, or movement and activity. (Reference: Aggression Mode and Intimacy) So it's important for you to be able to manage and organize the motivation for fulfilling, momentum of and changes in all your experiences when in pursuit of something, so that you continue to build and sustain consistency. (Reference: Aggression Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Aggression is BELLIGERENCE. The Positive Pole of Aggression is DYNAMISM. -Belligerence settles in when you try plowing forward without considering the dynamics/impact of your actions, such as by flailing about from one thing/direction to the next in a distracted, uncoordinated manner. It is what happens when you use force and action to achieve single self-satisfying aims with no concern for how that affects anything else, including the rest of yourself. (Reference: Aggression Mode: Relating through DOING) Think of it like the theatrical hands of a loud talker. (Reference: Persistence) Aggression finds it important to create consistent actions and results that lead somewhere meaningful. So when you can't envision what you have become or will become from doing things, your path through a goal/relationship can feel chaotic rather than consistent and lack any actual direction or fulfillment, in turn affecting how you manage your actions. This can lead you to shadow others, tap into them and leverage yourself by manipulating their actions, directions, strengths and weaknesses in order to reach the results/visions you seek. SLIDING When you fall into -Belligerence, you begin to create -Unchanging patterns, as you feel you're constantly confronting obstacles that you must just get out of the way, no matter the cost. To fully move into +Dynamism though, you must first understand the value of +Persistence. While this can mean you just keep trying until you get it, it goes much deeper into your ability to use all obstacles you face as resources for your persistence. So you benefit from always looking at how to sustain your enthusiasm for action by engaging new directions & perspectives; such as by letting a daunting project become a mini-project part of a larger one, or revitalizing a stale relationship by doing something new in it. These bring dynamic new ways of fueling yourself. (Reference: Persistence) You can also bring a sense of +Clarity back into your life by choosing to see and intimately understand all of the dynamic parts of your relationship/experience, shifting away from a chaotic and distracted -Surveillance of everything that leaves you feeling disconnected from the whole of life. A shift into +Dynamism means you're able to juggle and manage all parts of a scenario, relationship or pursuit cohesively, directing forces from all angles/aspects of the whole into action and harmony, to create a consistent sense of movement, progress and activity "across the board". You’re fully aware of how all the dynamics involved play together & play off one another (much like conducting a musical symphony or performing acrobatics), as you help the parts of whole context come together to move in unison seamlessly. (Reference: Aggression Mode: Relating through DOING) ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE AGGRESSION MODE: Your Aggression is most attractive to others for helping them realize causal truths. Your actions set off dynamic effects into motion that then impact, inspire, activate and shape the self, world and universe through a cascading ripple effect. (Such as the dramatic gesture of a hand conveying a meaningful truth; the wings of a butterfly flapping to create wind that later becomes part of a storm; or the coordination of a drummer's limbs creating a dynamic beat.) You bond/bind with others through their Role in Essence, attracted to any Common Ground in one’s Totality or the Life as a Whole, and especially to what one has become from everything. (Reference: Aggression Mode and Relationships) This means you can feel most wounded when you, another or your entire relationship is no longer whole, but has become broken, fragmented, divided and scattered in some way. And as such, you might reprimand yourself/others for that and try to correct what caused this imperfection & inconsistency of action/integrity. The focus is no longer about creating greater states together, only forcing past states of being to return. To heal, it helps to Recover your Sense of Integrity, and bring all the pieces of you that have been fractured, wounded and distracted back together, as parts of the perfectly imperfect whole that you or others are, so that they function to return a sense of harmony, initiative & direction again. (Reference: Michael Speaks: Healing Relationships and Aggression Mode and Relationships) OBSERVATION MODE One in Observation relates through truly seeing and perceiving others and being seen/understood by them. Observation then chooses how further to relate and experience through using any of the other Modes. In other words you're the type to first observe, watch and keep a mental note/archive of everyone's behaviors and choices. You grow intimacy through relationships that can truly see & understand one another- and struggle with those where you and others lock each other into one preferred or expected version of yourselves at the expense of the whole. (Reference: How Observation Mode evolves Relationships) This same sense of total clarity is also important for you to gain from your experiences/pursuits in life for them to feel fulfilled. (Reference: Observation Mode pursuing Goals) The Negative Pole of Observation is SURVEILLANCE. The Positive Pole of Observation is CLARITY. -Surveillance ensues when you feel distant, removed and isolated from your relationships, experiences and the world-at-large- so you sense vague, abstract connections but never feel like an intimate part of things. You simply watch life (and love) go by from afar, as if you're “going through the motions”, or living behind a glass window or two-way mirror, with a sense of invisibility, disconnection, high scrutiny or yearning apathy. (Reference: 20120218 OMW - Why Me?) Observation Mode always sees aspects of self/others in terms of how they make up parts of the whole individual. But when you don't want to & refuse to see certain parts of you/others, you can tend to divide that whole person by ignoring thoughts, feelings and behaviors to retain a much more acceptable image. You might even expect others should do the work of seeing, healing and distracting you from what you don't want to see in yourself, so you consistently avoid those parts of you that you survey and know exist but refuse to look at. You end up only feeling "whole" if you keep this part "over here" and that part "over there", so to speak. SLIDING Observation can use any other Mode to Lock you in Surveillance or bring greater Clarity. Sliding to Reserved Mode would mean you step back emotionally from your relationship/pursuit to see it from afar; either to protect self from overwhelming emotions or pointlessness, or to find the point/meaning of your relationship/experience and build that up incrementally. (Reference: Observation sliding... and Observation sliding to Passion and Reserve) Sliding to Passion Mode would mean you dive in to be close to someone/thing that inspires, or is inspired by you; either to identify with/as that and expect it to represent and behave according to you, or learn about & become more of yourself through that relationship/experience. (Reference: Observation Mode sliding to Passion, Observation sliding to Passion and Reserve and Observation sliding...) Sliding to Caution Mode would mean you seek to refine your thoughts & expression as you relate and pursue; either leading you to over-analyze & recoil in aversion from the impact of what you think about, or to choose the most deliberate and intentional way for better expressing yourself. Sliding to Power Mode would mean you seek to free your thoughts & expression so you can be seen/heard for your beliefs, place and identity; either in ways that oppress others or yourself into conformity, or that are confidently empowering of and present with you and others. (Reference: Observation sliding...) Sliding to Perseverance Mode would mean you never give up and keep trying; either against all obstacles that hinder and obstruct your path in a relationship or task, or by navigating with/around/through those obstacles as part of the dance of life. Sliding to Aggression Mode would mean you aim to see your part and force in shaping the dynamically changing, shifting parts of life, relationships and tasks you’re relating to; either in ways that are distracted with forcing action to reach self-satisfying aims at the expense of the impact, or help you see all the parts/places you can most effectively act on and with. A shift into +Clarity means you are able to clearly see who you and everyone else are "up close and personal", with a keen trust in and panoramic perspective of where you are all going in life. Clarity is a resonance with and of being truly alive and whole, so you start to feel like an intimately involved participant in your relationships, experiences, goals and the world at large, rather than a disconnected surveyor/observer of those that exists outside of everything that happens. Observation makes known that you & others are whole in your totality, and accepted for who you are, as you always aim to perceive the whole person you’re relating with, or as much as you can understand in any given scenario. ATTRACTION & WOUNDING FOR THE OBSERVATION MODE: Your Observation is attractive to others for the opportunity you give them to be seen; either because they want you to validate them as who they wish to be, or because you see them as who they truly are. You bond or bind to others Modes, forming connections based on how much you resonate with another, and how well another sees past your surface, seeing you in your entirety too. Above all then, you tend to be attracted to any Common Ground in Perspective. (Reference: Observation Mode and Relationships) As such, you can feel most wounded when someone you thought saw you in your entirety no longer is, or someone you crave and long to see you is unable or unwilling to. To heal, rather than push for others to see you more clearly, it can help if you instead look past the surface you see as defining another, so that you can see their innocence & wholeness too. In other words, open yourself to seeing the heart, life and limitations of another, as you likely are not allowing them to be any more than one version of themselves. Feeling Understood is vital to your healing, but if others don't bring this to you, you can always bring it to yourself by remembering that you may not be seeing everything clearly.

  2. [Extracted from Michael Speaks: June 2005] [Annsge] I would like to know about the secondary chief feature. I’ve heard that it affects the mode and/or it affects relationships. Is there anything in particular that is helpful in working with the 2nd CF? How does it affect relationships–and/or does it affect relationships more than the Primary CF? MEntity: We have spoken of the Secondary Chief Feature as affecting the Attitude and the Mode, depending on the context of the questioning. When we spoke of the Attitude being affected, there was less understanding as to how the Mode worked. The Mode is not one of the more understood Overleaves. We would, then, say that there are three tiers to the effects of a Chief Feature, making a Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary Chief Feature system. Primary Chief Feature affects the GOAL; the Secondary affects the MODE; the Tertiary affects the Attitude. It is NOT that there are three distinctly different Chief Features in your Overleaves, but that there are three AREAS in which a Chief Feature will be distinctly visible. Although these areas may very well have three distinctly different Chief Features, it is also quite common to have one Chief Feature rule all three areas. These areas, then, would be the areas of Self-Fulfillment, Relationship-Fulfillment, and Philosophical Fulfillment, or the Goal, Mode, and Attitude, respectively. The Chief Feature that affects the Mode is the Chief Feature that affects your experience of EXPRESSION. In addition, then, the Chief Feature that affects your GOAL affects your experience of ACTION, while the Chief Feature that affects your Attitude affects your experience of INSPIRATION. The Chief Feature that affects your Mode/Expression/Relationships is the Chief Feature that is used to protect you from INTIMACY. Your Mode describes not only how you express yourself internally and externally, but it also describes how you approach or repel Intimacy. When we speak of Intimacy, we are speaking of the spectrum of experience that could be described as SAFETY. In other words, the Chief Feature that is enlisted as your protector against Intimacy is doing so because you have learned that you are UNSAFE in your Expression and in your Relationships. We remind you that a “relationship” and “intimacy” is not exclusive to human interaction, but can include your sense of relationship to and intimacy within yourself, your aspirations, goals, etc. This subject can be explored much more deeply in a more appropriately provided format. We believe what we have shared is a good start. We, of course, have much to say on this subject. In terms of alleviating the effects of the Secondary Chief Feature, one would always find the quickest and “easiest” route to be through that of the Attitude. In ALL cases of Chief Features, the Attitude is the one overleaf that can dismantle them all. If one can find a conscious means to implement a behavior to bring the Attitude into the Positive Pole, one can dismantle the effects of the Chief Features in a powerful “domino or cascade effect.” Using the Positive Pole of the partner Attitude on the shared Axis, one can then move directly into the Positive Pole of the original Attitude. For example: If one is an Idealist, one can move from Naiveté (negative pole) to Coalescence (positive pole) by using INVESTIGATION, which is the Positive Pole of the Skeptic. To explain this more personally: The Idealist sees life in terms of how it SHOULD BE. This often leads to Naiveté because he tends to believe he can or should do far more than he is capable of doing. The Idealist then piles his life full of obligations and improvements to the point of disappointment and sometimes to the extent of harming himself or others. He has not accepted that to get from point A to point Z requires the steps in between. This is a form of Naiveté. This “negative” Attitude then cascades throughout the Overleaves, weighing them down into the Philosophy of CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT (or that everything should be “better”) without the means or method to do so. The Philosophy is not the problem; it is simply the lack of Coalescence that blocks this fragment. Coalescence could be defined as the culmination of several factors that can eventually manifest the Ideal. One can now see how INVESTIGATION might help an Idealist to dismantle his fears. If he would simply seek to understand (investigate) the steps required that would create his Ideal, he would not remain under the weight of Naiveté. Once he grasps and implements the process of realizing the Ideal, he is immediately back in Coalescence and free from Chief Feature. This same method can be applied to ANY Overleaf, but starting with the Attitude is the most empowering and immediately revitalizing because Attitudes are linked to the energy of Inspiration. Once the feed of Inspiration is returned to the Personality, most often “anything” can then be done.
  3. 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.

    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.

  6. 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: MAY 2011

    ENERGY REPORT MAY 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) APRIL began the shift of emphasis from the Goal for the year toward the Mode for the year. Caution is the Mode for 2011. When the shift into the Mode begins, the emphasis on relationships begins. With Caution being the theme this year, some of the more challenging of your relationships, or issues within your relationships, may come to the surface for addressing. In this case, we see that many who are choosing to align with this collective energy have decided to take on an area of relationship that has fallen into Phobia, the negative pole of Caution. The Mode is the part of the Personality that supports the Goal, and in doing so, it must support Relationships, as most Goals cannot be fulfilled without some form of Relating and Networking. In short, to truly explore the spectrum of a Goal, you must include parts of the self that have become fragments, and include others to some degree. Every Mode is either a path through freedom or refinement of a certain relating style. The 7 Modes, then, could be described as: Reserve: reaching your Goal by refining your emotions Passion: reaching your Goal by freeing your emotions Caution: reaching your Goal by refining your thoughts Power: reaching your Goal by freeing your thoughts Perseverance: reaching your Goal by refining your actions Aggression: reaching your Goal by freeing your actions Observation: reaching your Goal by observing and using the Mode most appropriate for the occasion. Once a collective Goal has been established for the year, then the building and fulfillment of Agreements tends to begin to fall into place in support of that Goal. In this case, the Goal is Flow, which means that the intent this year would be for the exploration of the spectrum between Freedom and Inertia, which we have covered in our previous reports through Troy. Because most of our students who have aligned with this collective energy for the year chose to work through the issues of the Negative Pole of Caution, first, this means that most of our students, over the time between April and June, will probably come head to head with some of the more challenging issues within themselves, or between themselves and others, in a way that potentially, permanently alters the thought processes associated with those Phobias/fears. Caution is the refinement of THOUGHTS as a path toward a Goal, and if the Goal is to Flow, or to move toward an inclusive, embracing Freedom, then any thoughts that lock any relationships, internally or externally, away from Freedom would probably come to the surface. Phobia is a paralysis, or a freezing of thought patterns, so that nothing can move beyond those thoughts. Deliberation is the slowing down of thoughts so that other processes can be included alongside those thoughts. When one has fallen into Phobia, the tendency is then to turn to Caution’s partner Mode, which is Power. Power Mode is the Freeing of your thoughts by owning them, being present with them, taking responsibility for them. The positive pole of Power Mode is Authority, and this can be translated into Presence, Ownership, Responsible in terms of one’s thoughts about the self in relation to other. To break the paralysis of Phobia, many of our students may find that they are gently or surprisingly confronted with outdated thoughts, old scenarios, archaic thinking patterns about certain relationships that then have the opportunity to be met with more responsible thinking, more presence, and more ownership of the results of one’s thinking in relation to these relationships; more Authority. This ownership of thought patterns can then return the relationship back into a more Deliberate path of thinking, the positive pole of Caution. This would not mean revelations or miraculous recoveries, but a soft merging of opportunity for creating NEW thoughts, together, Cautiously, but Deliberately. For those who may find this familiar to them over April, May, and June, it would do you well to remember, if you choose to do so, that this is a process, not a pivot. In other words, a kind of self-vigilance and patience is order to help secure any new thought patterns you would like to establish. For most who take on this exploration of Relationships, the new core of that process would probably be comfortably re-established or rejected by the end of June. Helpful thoughts over MAY might be: 1) YOU AND ME MAKE WE Though many fragments can tend to feel alone, there is actually never a moment in which a person is not in a relationship with others. In fact, in most instances of loneliness and feelings of isolation, the person has developed such feelings only from his or her thoughts about what he or she thinks OTHERS think about him or her. Changing or updating how one thinks others think about oneself can help to transform one’s relationship with the self and world, as a whole. Keeping this in mind over the months of April, May, and June can help one to approach those challenged relationships from a fresh perspective, from a clean slate, and to potentially transform the sense of self as it relates to others, and thus help manifest more of the True Personality and Essence. To the degree that one has locked oneself down by what one thinks others are thinking, contributes to the degree to which one has blocked Essence. Ultimately, the concept of the “individual” is a lie. There is truly, only, “we.” Even the individual is a conglomerations of parts; a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts, but a conglomeration, nonetheless. 2) RELATING DOES NOT EQUATE RELIVING Returning to relationships that have fallen into challenge, paralysis, or inertia does not mean one has to relive the patterns that led to those challenges, paralysis or inertia. Returning to a relationship that suffers challenges is a cultivation of new possibilities, new facets, new perspectives, new thoughts. The past may need to be addressed, but that does not mean it has to be relived. Relating is the process of empathy, and in addressing the past, the key to healing would be through the capacity you have for relating, even remotely, to any part of the other person’s experience. This does not mean giving permission, justification, or power over to the other person who may have harmed you, but it does mean planting that “seed” of transformation that is Empathy, or Compassion. Sometimes the greatest relief in a relationship is not through finding fault, or by imposing punishment, but to have one, both, or all parties suddenly comprehend the relief of being seen, heard, and/or understood. If even one part of the equation experiences this, the effects can tend to be a cascading effect throughout the relationships.

  8. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 011308 [Michael Entity] : Hello to everyone. We are here. We've been asked to expand on the Overleaves in a way that might add more "dimension" and context for the practical use of the Overleaves, and we can do so. What we have shared about the Overleaves, in general, is "just the beginning." What we will share with you today is how these Overleaves "show up" in the basic contexts of your daily existence. What we will share is a way to be more aware of the Overleaves in a way that can be observed and then that overleaf can be more consciously utilized in other contexts where it might not be so obvious. We will start with the Goal. If you have ever wanted to observe your Goal in effect most clearly, this Overleaf is most obvious in the context of your EXTERNAL LIFE. By this we mean that this overleaf is what you use as your motivation behind all of your choices that are in relation to the external world, to life, in general. Within that context, it could be said that the Goal is the Overleaf that describes what you reach out for in the world in terms of experience, or more precisely, the Goal describes what you wish to bring back with you from your experiences. It does not ultimately describe HOW, or IF, but it does describe WHAT. For instance, if your Goal is Acceptance, this means any experience that is taken from your day can be traced back to that particular Goal and you would do well to see how this describes WHAT you sought in your choices throughout the day from the general contexts of your external life. It could be said, then, that the Goal resonates to the Moving Center and the Action Axis. We share this axis resonance with you as a foundation for future information we have to share, as well, because we will eventually go through each Goal (and mode, attitude, etc.) and what each overleaf means in light of this information. We also share these resonances, not only for future reference, but for your further exploration on your own as you draw connections and cross-references throughout these resonances. We will also include here that the Goal could be said to be your method of entrance into the world in terms of PROJECTS. In this case, we mean "projects" as a key term to help simplify the general point of your motivation for reaching out into the world of experience in the first place. Next, we will share about the Mode. In terms of the Mode, then, it could be said that the Mode is your entrance into your world of RELATIONSHIPS. If you want to fully understand how your Mode manifests, it can most easily be seen in the context of Relationships, or more specifically, in the world of INTIMACY. In this case, we would define "intimacy" as being your method of resonance to something beyond you. This is why the Mode is often described as "how you go about reaching the goal," because your relationship to experience (your Goal) is still a relationship, which is then described by your Mode. The Modes resonate to the Emotional Center and the Inspiration Axis. The Mode resonating to the Emotional Center implies accurately that Modes are about PERCEPTIONS, which greatly affect your interpretation of OTHER in relationships; Perceptions being the Positive Pole of the Emotional Center. Furthermore, the Modes' resonance to the Inspiration Axis will help shed light on the dynamic required for INSPIRATION and how that works for each of you, which we will discuss in future sessions about the Overleaves. It should be noted, as well, that we do not limit these Overleaves' resonance to the Lower Centers, but include the Higher Centers, as well, though we wish to focus on the Lower only for the sake of tangibility and practicality, not because the Higher Centers are excluded. In other words, it could be said that the MODES are how one might eventually manifest LOVE in the life, or the Higher Emotional Center. In addition, the GOAL might be how one could be said to manifest BEAUTY, or Energy, in the life, as it resonates to the Higher Moving Center. By "beauty" and "energy," in this case, we mean that one brings about a sense of pattern to experiences and begins to see this pattern as perfect and beautiful, not as random and chaotic, or imposed. Next we will speak of the Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be your entrance into the world of COMMUNICATION. If one were to see how this most displays itself, it is usually most prominent in the realm of SOCIALIZING, or any realm of exchanging information. The Overleaf describes how one communicates to others through the primary personal philosophy one has chosen for the life. It also describes how one LISTENS, or hears, in terms of Communication, as it is quite difficult to communicate outside of your personal philosophical stance. In other words, if one is an Idealist, it could be said that Communication is primarly going to lean toward the philosophy of IMPROVEMENT. It does not mean that one cannot exchange outside of that philosophy, but that when an Idealist is fully present, then communication is bent toward that philosophy, steering all expression and reception through the Ideal. The Attitudes, then, resonate to the Intellectual Center, and the Expression Axis. By association, this also means that the Attitudes describe how one communicates his or her TRUTH, as the Attitudes resonate to the Higher Intellectual Center, as well. It could be said then that all communication passes through this overleaf as a means to help evolve, question, develop, transform, update, etc. the concepts of Truth for the life. In that respect, one can see how this Overleaf can tend to be the most obvious in social situations, as that context can quite often bring to light how one expresses his truth, hides it, or protects it. Next, we will speak of the Role. The Role could be said to resonate to your INTERNAL LIFE. This is who you are "at the end of the day," when alone, and "catching up with yourself." This is the part of you used to make sense of "it all." This is the part of you that digests and stores the experiences, the communications, the intimacies of the day, year, and life. Remember that ESSENCE and ROLE are two very distinct terms, though they are used interchangeably, easily. This is why we speak in terms of "Role in Essence," as the Role is an overleaf that the Essence chose for the cycle of lifetimes. The Role resonates to the Instinctive Center and the Assimillative Axis as this is the part that carries over from lifetime to lifetime. It could be said to be the Overleaf that asks at the end of the day, "what does all of this mean to me? how does all of this contribute to my evolution? why did I make the choices I made?" This is also the very primary level from which ALL of your choices are made, whether in Projects, Intimacy, or Communication. The Role is from where you draw your consciousness as it grows from Experience, Relationships, and Socializing. And so it could be said that this is also the part of you that you bring TO your day; the constantly-refreshed version of you for the new set of experiences explored within the next day, month, year, and even life. Differentiating these contexts and how each Overleaf is showcased in these contexts can help bring about an awareness that one might not have had, before, in terms of grasping how his overleaves work in the day-to-day. Upon exploring these contexts, you can also look at where one might have "issues" or how one might resolve "issues" related to that particular context of life. For instance, if one is missing Intimacy within the life, one would look to the Mode for insights into how one might find resolution to the issues connected to intimacy and relationships. If one is feeling a lack of participation in the world-at-large, so to speak, and feels a lack of energy, an increase of frustration in the life, looking to the Goal can help in bringing insights into how to bring one back into a conscious participation again. If one finds oneself rejecting or uncomfortable in social situations, it could be of help to explore the primary truths, the Attitude, as a starting point for what motivates this division. We could go on with many different paths of examples, but we believe this will be a good starting point to offer within the time frame available today through this channel. We will include here that we have more to say in terms of how the Body Type, Centering, and Soul Age play into this, but these will be discussed in future sessions. [AnnH] : I am having trouble understanding how the assimilation axis overleaves operate in this context. Ex. my mode is observation: How does clarity vs. surveillance work in terms of relationships? [Michael Entity] : It could be said that, in terms of relationships, you are divided from the other, observing from a distance, removed, never truly intimate, but "surveilling" when functioning from the negative pole. In the positive pole, it could be said that you are able to drop the division between you and other and truly grasp his, her, or it's presence in relation to you. In other words, you allow OTHER to be seen and included in your vision, your clarity, rather than through a metaphoric plate glass window. When in Surveillance, yes, you can smile and nod and even make "googly eyes" through that window, but Other is never truly able to be seen clearly, to be present for you, to be within reach of true intimacy, because you are "keeping your eye on him, her, it," which, ironically, does not allow for as much clarity as one might think, because without allowing the Other to be fully present, you do not have all of the information available. For simplistic purposes, it could be said that Observation Mode is either at-a-distance, or up close (negative, and positive poles, respectively). We remind you that the entire spectrum described by an Overleaf is available to you and while the positive poles "feel" better most of the time, and allow for manifestation of Essence, it is also valid to utilize the negative poles as part of your experiences of a life as Personality. [Kathryn41] : How is casting incorporated into this scenario? Is it more reflective of 'essence's nature apart from the role and other overleaves? Does it even count as an overleaf, or is it more of the innate nature of essence? [Michael Entity] : We would not consider "casting" to be an Overleaf, but you are correct in seeing this as more reflective of an innate nature of Essence. Casting describes a mathematical relationship of your Essence relative to other Essences, and this does affect the Essence (and by extension, the Role) greatly, but not within the contexts we have shared today. However, we will say that we do have much to say about how Casting can be more tangibly explored within your days, and we will get to that in future discussions, if it chosen for pursuit. As a quick response, we will say here that the Casting is another context that helps bring about an understanding of how one relates, but from the Essence Level, not the personality level, and we would add that "casting" would include not just the primary position within the cadence, but the cadence numbering, itself, and the entity number. These three numbers can be discussed in terms of how one can bring a conscious awareness to how one exists as Essence in relation to other Essences. We already know this is a topic of interest and intend to delve into this with those of you who are interested. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
