This material was pulled from a private transcript originally posted on 6/28/10. Q: I've been channeled as being in the intellectual/emotional part and the intellectual/moving part. Could Michael give me some examples/details on how these traps work so I could differentiate between them? MICHAEL: Centering and Part work in this way: Centering could be best understood as how one experiences the world around oneself, while the Part is how that experience is returned to the world. The Intellectually Centered [person] would tend to experience the world in ways that are philosophical, thought-provoking, analytical, navigating through the use of logic. Life would be experienced, in general, through thinking your way through it. The Emotional Part of the Intellect would mean that, in general, you might turn those thoughts into forms of inspiration for others through your Emotions. This would not be through any obvious means such as speech, expression, or communication, but through quiet example. The Emotional Part would find it difficult to put experiences into words, to express one’s thoughts, to speak about one’s feelings or experiences, but would simply live them out. The Trap would be when thoughts provoke emotions, which are then sought to be understood, and since perception and emotion are not logical, the process of analysis by the intellect can be endless as it provokes more feelings, leading to anxiousness, obsessiveness, and overwhelm. The key to balance here would be in DOING something, bringing the body into the equation, either by literally moving it, exercising, and checking in with its health, or by simply breaking the pattern of anxiety by taking a chance, taking a risk. The Moving Part of the Intellectual Center would mean that, in general, thoughts might be turned into impulses, hunches, and intuition as a form of taking Action. The Moving Part would find it difficult to keep up with Emotions, often setting them aside for evaluation later, after Doing something with the Thoughts. This combination would find it important to follow through, to explore thoroughly, and to trust a certain flow of life, but its trap would be in that without a sense of inspiration (emotions), actions can simply become reactions, and life can feel out of control, difficult to navigate, and filled with general over analysis and worry, often feeling as if life is a series of putting out fires, or trying to balance many spinning plates, leaving the consequences on the emotions as something to be dealt with later. The key to balance here is through bringing the emotions into the equation by embracing music, listening to self and others, and allowing inspiration to be a part of the dynamic of life, instead of simply feeling compelled to do.
