Energy Report September 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.] September appears to be moving in the direction of a "fresh start" for many of our students. It is the last month of emphasis on the Attitude of Idealist, which could be said to be the exploration of the "philosophy of improvement." This emphasis on the Attitude began in July, launched from what some may have been considered "high hopes," moved through August's deep sense of disappointment, distraction, and disheartenment with life as Ideals were measured against reality, and now moves into September with a more solid sense of footing. The extremes of Idealism having been explored, most can now find the balance between Naivety and Coalescence, the negative and positive poles of Idealism. For most, this appears to be showing up as some form of "fresh start," as we said, and this fresh start is most likely marked by inclusion of the Moving Center. By this we mean that ACTION is the key that appears to have been missing in the equation of your ideals for improvement of your life, self, relationships, etc. For some, this may be marked by a literal TO DO list; for others this may show up as a literal move from one location to another; and for others it may show up in the form of traveling; but in all cases, it would show up as some form of MOVEMENT. When the Attitude of the Personality is in the negative pole, it brings down the entire Personality, in most cases. The Attitude could be said to be the hub of the Personality, so to speak, around which all other components function. In other words, if your primary philosophy about life is askew, everything is askew. Therefore, the key to True Personality, (which is the energies that are "you" when governed by conscious Choice) is held in the Attitude. When one wishes to change one's Attitude, there are many ways to do so, but one of the most effective ways is to engage the most-neglected Center (Moving, Intellectual, or Emotional) in the Personality. On an individual level, this would vary, but when speaking in terms of participating in, and contributing to, the collective weather of energy patterns, this would be determined by the most common denominator that is generated out of a group, and in this case, this year, it is the Moving Center. To participate in, and contribute to, the collective pattern of Idealism this year, it would be done through the participation and contribution toward MOVING, or taking action. Despite the fact that the Moving Center has been evident in global and local events in varying degrees, it has not been as evident for many on a Personal level beyond Frustration, a negative pole description of the Moving Center, which can also be described as Frenetic. Frustration is generated when energy is moved in a direction that lacks fulfillment of intention, whereas Productivity, the positive pole, is the fulfillment of intention. If improvement is intended, then not only will thinking and feeling be required, but action will be, as well. A renovation job is not fulfilled by mere excitement and blueprints alone; someone needs to DO something. And the same goes for moving Idealism out of Naivety and into Coalescence. Put another way, you are the one who has to do the work to accomplish, transform, or embrace what you have set out to accomplish, transform, or embrace. To go further behind the dynamics that can help to bring the Idealism to the positive pole, we would suggest looking at what helps the Moving Center continue to work Productively, rather than Frustratingly: LAUGHTER. Laughter is a biological product from the higher functions of the Moving Center, which then fuels the lower, more mundane levels of the Moving Center toward Productivity, which then provides the conscious and creative navigation toward fulfillment of an Ideal (or on an individual level, whatever Attitude may be of relevance.) Laughter is vital for Productivity, and though we do refer to the physical elements of laughing, we also refer to the internal laughter that allows you to not take yourself or your life so seriously. There is a vast difference between treating yourself seriously, and taking yourself seriously. Treating yourself seriously emphasizes you as a valuable and meaningful Being, while taking yourself seriously merely emphasizes and amplifies (and defends) the question of your value and meaning. In other words, treating yourself seriously is simply another way of describing Confidence, whereas taking yourself too seriously is Insecurity. Treating yourself seriously, ironically, means being able to laugh at yourself and your experiences, creatively navigating through your hardships and disappointments, and being able to decide on your own what those experiences mean to you. September, then, may not only be a month of activity and movement, but a month that may be peppered with downtime for reflection on the comedy vs tragedy aspects of your life. Some of you may be ready to, at least, chuckle at this year's frustrations, absurdities, and tragedies, both in terms of experiences or in terms of your behavior and choices, shaking your head affectionately at the realization of your confidence and trust that has been built within you from the experiences. That confidence and trust is there, regardless of your realization of it, but your realization of it transforms it from a hidden stockpile into an collection of accessible tools for you to use for fulfilling your Ideal; your chosen direction of improvement. We remind you that we speak to those participating in, and contributing to, the collective energies we can see moving in larger patterns, but it is just as true that we have pockets of students who do not have any interest in "improvement," or Ideals, and have opted out. For those who have opted out of this energy, we have seen a rather fast-paced, but rather smooth, momentum of the year, bringing with it a sense of movement and change, but without such fluctuations and challenges. These fragments will seem to be moving right along in their protected bubbles of reality that seem untouched by the reality of ups and downs that others are experiencing, but neither reality is any more or less desirable or valid. The reality that is valid and desirable to you is the one you are experiencing; there are no exceptions. September 5th through the 7th is a NEXUS for many of our students, but just as many will experience their Nexus at various points (individually) over the days between the 15th and the 20th. This means some may be the 15th through the 17th, while others may be the 16th through the 18th, etc., but most will be around 3 days. A Nexus is a pivotal period of time where collective choices either create a convergence (a coming together of group paths/realities) or a divergence (a splintering of group paths/realities). There tend to be themes around these that help describe the direction the Nexus might take. These happen fairly regularly on a Personal level, and almost monthly on a Community level, and one to three times a year on a Global level. This Nexus is a Community Nexus, which usually means that this shift occurs in pockets of time close together that eventually "add up" to the collective shift of your community. A "Community" would be anyone remotely meaningful within your social or family circle. If you communicate with that person, he or she is a part of your community. This means that those within your more immediate circle would most likely move through the Nexus together, or close together. Keep in mind that having contact with someone is not the same thing as communicating. Not everyone with whom you have contact, even on a regular basis, is someone with whom you communicate (engage in meaningful exchange). This Nexus is a divergence, which would mean that most of you may feel a diversion of directions, a parting of paths, a scattering of attention from within your community, but this is not a "bad thing." When a divergence happens on a personal level, parts of you literally spin off into new realities that pursue different paths of reality. When a divergence happens on a community level, the community either comes together to address the various needs of the community, or the community dissolves. For most of our students, we see the emphasis moving in the direction of addressing various goals, directions, and needs within the community as a means to continue nurturing that community. This is not to say that some will not dissolve, but that most will simply find a way to multi-task toward fulfillment of group ideals. To the degree that your community addresses its needs and works together toward an ideal, is the degree to which October, November, and December would generate prosperity, feelings of abundance, and the nurturing that this year has been moving toward as a Server year. To the degree that your community loses its sense of humor, disregards its needs, and does not act, is the degree to which October, November, and December would be submerged in the exploration of panic, distraction, intolerance, and victimization, the hallmarks of Impatience and Martyrdom. Whether now, or in the future of this life, or in between lives, or in a future life, or at the end of your Physical Plane incarnations, all of you will eventually discover one of the most profound truths of your existence, and that is: Despite what you have been taught by others, or have interpreted through your experiences, life is hilarious. Put in terms more expressive of this channel: "Life is a hoot!" This Truth is not a cruel or dispassionate statement, but quite the opposite: full of deep compassion and trust. When a parent sees the humor in the "tragic" stumbling of a child, or the "lethal" embarrassment of a teen, he or she is merely seeing the bigger picture of ultimate lack of threat to that child or teen, and so it is that you begin to see your own and others' experiences as ultimately without threat, therefore leaving room for the spectrum of humor, across the affectionate shaking of the head, rolling of the eyes, snickers, giggles, chuckles, and even into blatant bursts of laughter. Extracting, interpreting, or creating laughter from tragedy is part of manifesting one's Essence as an Older Soul. You are not expected by any means to rush into that truth, and nor should you expect that of yourself as some sign of enlightenment, unless you choose to impose that expectation upon yourself, of course. This truth is one that naturally comes to light at the pace in which you integrate and comprehend your experiences, and there simply is no race to do such a thing. Many do not "get it" until the final breaths of the final life, while others "get it" in bits and pieces throughout every lifetime. It is never beneficial to force this process of realization because then one moves away from humor and and into hysterics. Life is hilarious, not hysterical. Hysterics is a defense against, and an evasion of, experiences, not an embrace and comprehension. For those of you who wonder if you've experienced the truth of the humor of your life, we can say that if you experience a tragic or challenging experience of your past as now being nostalgic to any degree, then you have a hint at the beauty that is ultimately your life. Everything taken from your lives will ultimately range from nostalgic to hilarious. We remind you that humor is simply the resolution of paradox, which is when two or more surprising, unexpected, or conflicting elements come together and then resolve into comprehension. One thing that every reunited entity shares is a "good laugh" as we go through the collective catalog of lifetimes and the comical nature of tragedy is even more glaringly revealed. Some of you already suspect, and it is valid, that we do often share "laughs" with even your own Essence, but we do promise that we never laugh AT you, only WITH you. KEY PHRASE FOR THIS MONTH: Everyone is ultimately safe. Everyone. Including me.
ENERGY REPORT AUGUST 2010 As July shifts into August, an interesting, pivotal window is in place for many who have been examining their perspectives and philosophies about "what is possible" in terms of original intentions vs current assessments. It could be said this pivotal window is the meeting ground between the tangible and intangible, or a realization or breakthrough of sorts that would allow for focus on fully implementing ideas. This kind of pivotal window is known as a Nexus in our teachings. A Nexus is a crossroads of various versions of reality on literal levels known as "parallel realities," but also on symbolic levels that could be seen as various philosophical interpretations of reality. At these crossroads the realities either Converge, or Diverge. A Nexus can happen on Personal, Community, and Global levels, and in this particular report we speak of a Global Level. When a Nexus is experienced Globally, it usually means there is some kind of representation in the media that has the world's eyes, so to speak, focused on it. In this case, there is quite a bit of focus on the British Petroleum Oil Geyser, and the management of that event. When a Convergence happens, there is a kind of cohesiveness and wholeness that comes during that shift, interlacing various perspectives, interpretations, and stances about reality into one. This happens on a literal, Quantum level, but can also be seen as a symbolic Convergence of shared attitudes. When a Divergence happens, there is a kind of fragmenting and division that comes during that shift, delineating and clarifying the more incompatible versions of reality so that they can go on in separate directions to be explored. Again, this happens on a literal, Quantum level, but can also be seen as symbolic. A Convergence or a Divergence, both, tend to have a theme about which the merging or diverging happens. In looking at the upcoming shift occurring between the 27th and the 30th of July, we had anticipated a Convergence, a merging of realities that might feel as if they have come back together in a way that might translate into feeling "back on track," bringing a sense of focus, direction, and solid footing to most of our students. However, in the weeks since we have looked at this, we now see that while this is still technically a Nexus we would call a "Convergence," it does appear that a kind of conclusive Divergence is involved. In other words, rather than a branching out of parallels, some will simply end. In this case, it appears that this Nexus will focus on a profound awareness of what needs to be stripped from your investments you may have been inclined to hang on to as a form of false security, rather than as a form of possibility. In general, what can be stripped away would be those perceptions and efforts in your reality that represent your loss of creativity, your disheartened paths, your sense that nothing matters, and your general jadedness. This Nexus is a kind of rejuvenation of your Overleaves in a way that might be said to bring an exciting re-emphasis on a sense of risk, awe, and inspiration to the Personality. To fully embrace this, and to fully experience the merging of inner perspectives and realities that represent your willingness and want to get back on track, it would require that a realization take place. This realization would be about the recognition of what you have done to anchor yourself to old, outdated reasons for Not Doing, Not Being, Not Having. Those old, outdated ideas are up for conclusive release (again) during this Nexus. When there are parallel versions of reality that will come to an end, some may experience a low-grade, or even an obvious, agitation and anxiousness over the few weeks prior to the shift. It appears that many of our students may have been experiencing this over these past weeks. This might have felt like a strange mix of forcing oneself to be present for the demands of life around you while also feeling terribly disconnected from the moment. Some have reported this as being like an anticipation of hopeful possibilities, but while having no control over immediate focus; a feeling of short-circuiting, but continuing onward. This is because there was a partitioning happening during those weeks as you almost-literally moved "what you wish to release" over to "one side of you," and "what you wish to keep" has been moved to the "another side" of you. We would suggest that this not be taken literally, of course, but the description is quite apt for the kind of subtle division that some may have felt within. Another way to understand the past few weeks might be that a kind of defragmentation has occurred, moving blocks of energy around within you in ways that, when defragmenting is complete, will allow the body and Personality to function even more effectively. With a realization that one must truly END the possibilities (parallels) tied up in energies anchored to false securities, disheartening disappointments, and jadedness, as a means to make room and focus for new possibilities and updated potentials, then the Nexus might be experienced as both a freeing and a dying. Some may find themselves particularly emotional or sporadic over those dates, while others may slip easily into a sense of solid confidence. However it is experienced, most of our students might find that there is a definitive shift in awareness toward what is inspiring and possible, rather than toward what is disappointing and distracting. Because this is a shift that includes the ending of realities on such a mass scale, we would not be surprised if this is represented by a pocket of population exiting in a noticeable quantity, particularly those who simply cannot fathom possibility beyond the outdated anchors that have left life with little sense of potential. This is not to say that all who die within that time frame did so because of such an assessment, but that it is worth examining for validation if a large number exit. This wave of exiting appears to be, in part, because "reality" is suddenly, surprisingly leaning toward potential and possibility, and those who cannot or will not contribute to that will find their own versions of life that will remove them from the momentum of collective creation, or simply opt out altogether for now. And to expand upon this, we do not mean that some "utopian" future is now in alignment; we simply mean what we say: the emphasis is turning toward possibility, rather than overwhelm. With all of this being said, we can say that August might be a month tentative with experimentation, cautious anticipation, and some focus on the tangible elements that give the Personality a sense that its desires are possible. It would be a gentle, sensitive step forward into what has been sensed as exciting and inspiring, while keeping the Personality feeling safe and present. To help Personality and Body to feel safe and present over August, we think it would be helpful to bring more awareness to the process of bathing, swimming, or any activity that submerges the body, or parts of the body, in water. Even in the process of washing hands, bringing an awareness to that moment can help. What we mean by bringing an awareness to the moment is to simply know that you are doing what you are doing. Feel the water, know the intentions of the moment, and acknowledge the benefit for the body in some way, such as in the pleasure, the relief, the satisfaction. While taking a shower, give special attention to your skin, to the soap that moves across your body, to the scents involved, to the temperature, etc. This practice may seem unrelated to any larger patterns, but they are directly related. The more one includes his or her body in moments when nurturing is in effect, the more present and alive the body will be when your attention is elsewhere. Many of you carry your body around as if it is, at best, an inconvenience, and at worst, your enemy. Bringing active cohesion between your Personality and Body helps to bring cohesion between you and your life, your soul, and your higher patterns of intent. Helpful thoughts over August might be: 1) IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO START (AGAIN.) 2) I AM HERE, NOW. We realize these may sound cliche, but those phrases might be helpful for bringing one back to the present so that one can feel safe and full of potential. Those phrase might help to remind you that you do not have to be fragmented and distributed through Time to such an extent that you feel that what you Do, Feel, or Have is moot. Those things are far from moot. August does not have any particular dates of concern, but we will remind you that KEY DATES over JULY are July 27-30 as a Nexus that is a Convergence focuses on Breakthroughs, Solutions, and implementing long-term plans related to those breakthroughs. It is a Nexus that essentially focuses on "Keep Trying until you feel you are Doing, Being, Having as you intended."
