OMW - Jul 21, 2012 - Personal Cycles of Life MEntity Channel: Troy Tolley Began 9:56 AM 7/21/2012; Ended 2:37 PM 7/21/2012 (Approx. 4-1/2 hours) The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We will begin with a discussion about the nature of cycles and the potential benefit of understanding these. In every Universe, Planetary System, Planet, and its various life forms, there are cycles in effect that affect all who are a part of that dynamic. Many of these are obvious and observable, and many are on such vast or minute scales they are either missed, or nearly impossible to be concerned with from the Personality's point of view. Today we will discuss with you as many of the cycles that are relevant to the Personality as we can thoroughly discuss. The cycles of relevance tend to develop systems around them as a means to help measure them and track them, such as Astrology and Numerology, which are both valid systems for such things, when applied in legitimate ways. We will not go into the effects or measurements of such cycles that are most obvious, such as the hours of a day, seasons, lunar, etc., except in how they may apply to the cycles of relevance we will discuss. It is not that these more mundane cycles are not relevant, but that they are more useful as markers than as having actual effects. They are more reflective, than causative. There are 12 Cycles of Relevance, as we will call them for now, that may be of use to each Personality for understanding the cycles of his or her life. These are not predictive cycles, in terms of telling you what to expect in detail, but can be predictive in terms of their emphasis. Considering these as predictive only of emphasis in context is a more useful way of understanding these. For example, you know what time tomorrow will come, and that it indicates a new day, and that these days can be measured, mapped out, and counted on, but you cannot predict what each day will contain. To start, we will look at the most intimate of the Cycles: your Relationship Cycles, Comprehension Cycles, and your Life Plan Cycles. Relationship Cycles (Astrology and M/F Energies) Relationship Cycles are often run by your Male/Female, or Focused/Creative Cycles as measured by the ratio of "male to female" energy in your Essence as it is then reflected more mundanely in the Body. Bodies without Essence are either 100% Male/Focused Energy or 100% Female/Creative Energy. As Essence moves through a Body, the body shifts in dynamic to reflect the ratio inherent in the design of your Essence. Until the 2nd Internal Monad is completed, the Body tends to hold its emphasis relative to the gender of the body. After that, the ratio shifts to reflect Essence. Once the hormonal wash that often accompanies the 3rd Internal Monad is activated, then the Relationship Cycles, or M/F Energy Cycles are in effect. Regardless of your Male/Female Energy Ratio, your Relationships will tend to play out the cycles of both Energies, and because your Bodies are directly involved with relating, the body tends to reflect those cycles in fairly tangible terms. Before we elaborate, we will point out here, as an important aside, that there are 3 measurements of cycles that tend to be the most relevant and meaningful, at least in our system. These are measurements, or counts, of 7, 9, and 12. Measurements, or counts, of 7 are relative to Propulsion Cycles, or Evolutionary Cycles. It is a propelling force. Measurements, or counts, of 9 are relative to Completion Cycles, or Wholeness Cycles. Measurements, or counts, of 12 are relative to Expansion Cycles, or Empowerment Cycles. So in terms of your Male/Female Energy, both of these are in effect through your body, regardless of gender. Your Female/Creative Energy works in cycles of 28 days, divided into two cycles of 14 days, with the first cycle being an Inspirational/Emotional Cycle, and the second cycle being an Expressive/Intellectual Cycle. If one has a female body, this can often be measured in terms of the cycles of ovulation and menstruation. If one has a male body, this can be more difficult to measure, but can most often be measured in terms of "mood," as the Expressive/Intellectual Cycle can tend to be the most telling for both genders, as both will either be comfortable in their skin and social during that cycle, or "bitchy," sensitive, and reactionary during that cycle. The more moody and sensitive the Intellectual/Expressive Cycle, the more that individual is working through honesty and trust issues with the self or with others, and finding the voice for that. The stereotypical woman "PMS'ing" is an example of this, as the Intellectual/Expressive kicks into high gear for "getting out" what normally does not get a voice. Men do the same thing. Two weeks of every 28 days during these Creative/Female Cycles helps to relieve the body and the Personality of restrictions on otherwise suppressed feelings, thoughts, words, etc. [Bobby] Does the indicator you gave me, Transiting Moon opposite Natal Sun, match this 14 day period? [MEntity] Not necessarily, Bobby, but may be an indication for various individuals. Though these cycles are valid in terms of measuring by days, they can tend to fluctuate for various reasons, and some "weeks" may be shorter than others, or some cycles may go longer than normal, etc. For most, the cycles are most simply noted by when you notice you are inspired vs when you are suddenly moody "for no reason." The Male/Focused side of the cycle of one's Energy Ratio moves in cycles of 54 days, divided into 3 sub-cycles of 18 days each. Those sub-cycles are an Action Cycle, Expressive Cycle, and Inspirational Cycle. These sub-cycles can be most notably observed by their corresponding names, in that the Action cycle is quite active, sexual, aggressive, more outward in focus, and the Expressive Cycle is more thoughtful, communicative, expressive, and the Inspirational cycle is sleepier, more introspective. These two cycles, and their sub-cycles, are both moving through you at different paces, so that the mix and match of energies is constantly in flux. Combine this with the mix and match of others around you, and there is a great dance of energies happening among you at any moment. This adds a great amount of variation and variety to all forms of relating, and thus this is why we refer to this as your Relationship Cycle. Male/Female Energy Ratio describes how one navigates the life in terms of seeking balance, and this applies to relationships, as well. Depending upon where you are in your cycles, this tends to bring in a balancing set of cycles from others, or similar cycles. Taking responsibility for where you are in your own cycles can help you to relieve others of the responsibility for balancing you out. However, it can also help you to allow others to be in your life as a way to help you balance those out. Regardless of gender, if your ratio is higher on one side than the other by more than 65, then you may tend to relate more, and require balance more, in regard to that cycle. It may also be the side of the Ratio that is most easily revealed to you in observation. So if you are in a male body with higher female energy, you may actually sense your cycles of inspiration vs expression even more obviously than your male cycles of action, expression, and inspiration. Keep in mind that the expression and inspiration cycles overlap in terms for male and female energy, but their implementations are quite different. The male expression and inspiration cycles will be about structure, planning, and all other "focused" qualities, while the female expression and inspiration cycles are far more fluid, open, unstructured, and "creative" in quality. We realize this is a great deal of daunting information and we are only on the first of cycles to consider, but each will progressively require less detail, and we will continue to increase in speed of delivery. To help make the information we have shared so far useful, here is a quick synopsis of what to do: If you are female, make note of your ovulation/menstruation cycles. This can help you map your Creative Energy cycles. If you no longer ovulate or menstruate, or if you are in a male body, you can make note of when you feel the most inspired, with ideas flowing, and visions upheld, and increases in dream lucidity for when you are in the Inspirational cycle of the Creative Energy. You can also note when your mood turns in a noticeable way toward being sharper, more sensitive, brooding, or "moody," mind racing, and a sense of "facing or saying the truth" (even as it may be completely inaccurate), which may indicate the Expressive Cycle. Both of these cycles tend to be about one's mood, so keeping an eye on those distinct patterns can be helpful. Are you in the mood to construct, or in the mood to deconstruct, may be the easiest question to ask in mapping this. If you are male, you can map your male cycles by noting when you find your scent to increase, your sexual urges are amped up, and your distraction with attraction is obvious. This would mean you may be in your Action Cycle. Mapping from there could be fairly easy. This is also the easiest way for those in a female body to note where they are in a male cycle. As it is distinctly "male." Those with high male energy, whether in male or female bodies, may find it easier to note when they shift into sleep mode, introspective and maybe even escapist. This would be the male cycle of Inspiration. We know that these may be difficult to discern, but once one has found a mark, the rest is "just math." From there, you can actually mark your calendars for a general mapping of your cycles so that you will know the most sensitive spans of time, the most aggressive, the most exhausting, etc. This is an amazing way to get to know your body in a way that you may never have paid attention to before. How you feel in your body affects your relationships. Understanding the cycles that affect how you feel in your body, then, can help you to understand your relationship patterns. You cannot map everyone's cycles around you, and you do not have to do so in order to gain understanding. Giving yourself permission and understanding when you are in a cycle that is prompting you to be introspective, sensitive, and expressive helps you to keep from blaming others for your mood, your feelings, etc. It also frees you from expecting others to understand you when you have not done the work of understanding yourself. This, in turn, helps you to not blame others for their moods, processes, and states because you now understand that there are cycles involved that are beyond the control of the individual, except in how one understands and manages these. Offering understanding and insight when someone is in a rough cycle can be much more beneficial than offering disgust and anger. For those working on relationships of any kind, whether in a project, or in a marriage, this first, most-basic Cycle of Relevance can save the day, when it is understood. Noting these on your own is the most efficient means of getting into the accuracy of the cycles, but if one wishes to compare this to Lunar and Martial Transits, there may be a pattern unique to you that helps map these cycles. Lunar being relative to Creative/Female Cycles, and Martial being relative to Focused/Male Cycles. The patterns these make in Astrology are not on the same scales of measurement as the cycles of the energies, but you may still find some correlation that is useful. Before we move on to the next Cycles of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions. [Bobby] what exactly is it about any planet that matches these energies.. I know it isn't gravity [Bobby] if the answer for this is too long, just say so and we can come back to that another day ? [MEntity] The use of planets in Astrology is purely symbolic and relative to the developing Sentience and its exposure to, or awareness of, a planetary system. The planets are reflective of cycles in the psyche, bodies, etc., but are not causative. For instance, Mars Retrograde does not cause electronics to break down, or communications to falter, but, instead, reflects when the psyche is more attuned to, and affected by, those areas already weakened in that context. Think of the planets as various flashlights. In the same way that they reflect light in the sky as relative to your perspective, they also reflect patterns back as relative to your perspective. [GeraldineB] Are biorhythm charts a good way to monitor these particular cycles? [MEntity] If one wants to use a biorhythmic calculator for monitoring cycles, it is a good idea to do so, but only if there are calibrations made for what you observe vs what is calculated. For example, you may find that when the calculator reads that your Inspirational/Emotional cycle is critical, that is when you feel the most inspired. Noting this, you can then translate the calculator to accommodate your cycle in a more meaningful way. One would need to watch the calculator vs personal observation for at least 3 months to see what patterns are in need of translation. [GeraldineB] if they don't volunteer -- you said you'd biorhythms in more detail (but I see their cycles are completely different, too, other than the one 28 day) [MEntity] As for biorhythms: these can be used in the same was as Astrology. There are distinct measurements already locked into the patterns of biorhythms, as in Astrology, and therefore some pattern correlations may be found if observed long enough. In the same way that you can measure your M/F Energy cycles in a scale of weeks and not hours, it may take some larger arcs of observation to see the correlations that can be measured by these other systems. Biorhythms will come in handy for monitoring another Cycle of Relevance coming up (Comprehension Cycle -- see next topic) [Maureen] This is all very interesting Michael [MEntity] As we discuss each Cycle, we will mention any correlating system that is most relevant and helpful for monitoring that Cycle. Comprehension Cycle (Frequency and Biorhythm-like) Next up is your Comprehension Cycle. This is directly related to your Frequency. This is not an easy pattern to map, but a pattern that is easy to observe in effect. This oscillation not only describes how Essence processes experiences, but also describes how this is reflected in how the brain gathers, processes, and archives experiences. In fact, all of which we are describing to you, in terms of Cycles of Relevance, is reflected in some circles of known Physics by the term "oscillation." For example, the Relationship Cycle and all of its breakdown between Male and Female Cycles is what might be explored further as a "coupled oscillation," whereas the Frequency is a "harmonic oscillation." And then there are "driven oscillations," which we can correlate to other Cycles. The Frequency describes one's rate of comprehension. It does not describe one's capacity for comprehension, simply the rate of comprehension. This is the rate of speed through which one converts experience into knowledge. Understanding one's rate of comprehension, or Frequency, can help one to free the self and others from forcing comprehension when it simply cannot come faster than expected. To understand this spectrum of Frequency, we will describe the more obvious extremes of high and low, first. A higher frequency Essence and fragment will tend to be similar to one collecting shiniest objects of experience, first. They can collect many, and this contributes to a wide range of knowledge, as they have collected from so many directions. However, to thoroughly comprehend a single experience, it must be returned to, over and over, working through the "duller" levels, until there is comprehension. Each level uncovered is like a level being brought into the light (shiny enough). A higher frequency person might be similar to one who notices the beauty of the light reflecting off of the bumpers of several cars, and comprehending in a flash that these vehicles are truly beautiful, before realizing they are standing in the middle of traffic about be run over. Their cycles are fast, but brief, and broad. They may be "run over" several times before comprehending all that is involved with crossing a street. This does not make them slow learners. Learning and comprehending are not the same things here. Collecting experiences that contribute to wisdom is Comprehension here. Because experience can tend to have many layers for comprehension, having a higher frequency or rate of comprehension can help to gather a great many experiences at once. When one has a lower rate of comprehension, or lower frequency, it means that one is more likely to focus on one experience, and all of its layers, before moving on to other experiences. This might be similar to the person standing at the edge of a street of traffic "forever" before actually crossing the street. But when they do, they will probably not be hit by a car. They notice all of the shiny, but also the rubber, the pavement, the patterns of driving, stopping, etc. Each layer is thoroughly taken in AND THEN put together at once as Comprehension. Once there is Comprehension for a lower frequency, it is fairly complete in the explorations of layers. However, it can take a long time for that movement through layers to finally come into a state that allows for comprehension. [Maureen] Michael -- being at mid-range -- I feel like I'm all over the map -- it's mess some days. Sometimes I get hit by cars -- sometimes I don't. ...and I like to play in traffic. [MEntity] So while the higher frequency may be run over a lot more, he is crossing a lot of roads along the way. And while the lower frequency may be stuck at the side of a road for a long time, he may never find he is run over. These metaphors are crude, but helpful. Another way to understand this is to think of how one might work through an onion. The higher frequency will slice off what it needs and eat the sandwich into which he intends that slice to go. The lower frequency may peel the onion, layer by layer, working through blinding tears, so that the entire onion can be used in its soup. Those in the mid-range will tend to lean in whatever direction is most natural for the experience. The Frequency, or Comprehension Cycles, are basically Cycles that be described as those of Distraction (higher), Interaction (mid), and Attention/Extraction (lower.) Those who are Distracted gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Interactive (able to pivot more easily between Distraction and Extraction) tend to gain experience that way, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Those who are Extractive, tend to gain experiences by paying attention, and therefore gain wisdom that way. Societies tend to move in these cycles of comprehension, as well, relative to the dominant Frequency of that culture. For instance, much of the occidental world is in a Distraction cycle, so a great deal of its comprehension is gained through distracting avenues (reality tv, twitter, social media, abbreviations, etc.) Understanding these variations in Cycles of Comprehension can bring great relief to the individual and groups aiming for collecting experiences for wisdom. Those who are autistic or "ADHD" or "ADD" tend to have higher Frequencies, for example. Before we move on to the next Cycle of Relevance, we will open the floor for questions on Frequency and the Comprehension Cycle. [GeraldineB] No, I think I "get it" at this point -- may have followups in the future [Maureen] I just realized that mid-range is a really great frequency to have as a therapist Michael -- Thanks! [GeraldineB] I'm mid-range, too (55) I think -- anyway it helps to keep me balanced [GeraldineB] it's when I get Passion as a Mode that I go nutso ? [Maureen] LOL -- me too! [Maureen] I guess [MEntity] This is why there is such a limit within the range of your Frequency point, because there is really no altering one's rate of comprehension. It is not necessary for everyone to be at the same rate of comprehension, or sharing the same Cycles of Comprehension, but there will always be a necessity for understanding and bridging the differences. [Martha] I'm 40 but love social media and I multitask a lot [MEntity] If our symptoms of Frequency are out of synch with your experiences, we would suggest looking at your Frequency point again. It may be incorrect. [Martha] Troy got 40, Jose Stevens got 30 [MEntity] We think you are hit by cars much more than you remain standing by the road, if you will. [Martha] maybe it's 6th being level? [Martha] being 6th* [Maureen] What is Martha's Frequency then? [GeraldineB] I dunno -- I think Martha is extra careful due to an even higher frequency child [Martha] she's 78 [Maureen] Your daughter doesn't make you "multi-task" and like FB Martha! [MEntity] If you relate more to the higher frequency symptoms, we would suggest a correction of Frequency. [GeraldineB] well, what frequency do you see for her, Michael? [Martha] no she doesn't, Maureen ? Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans (Numerology) [MEntity] Next up is the Life Cycle, or Cycles of Life Plans. We will look at that for her if that is requested, but for now we would suggest a process of validation, first. If the information here is cause for correction, Martha will probably know. [Martha] I feel like I process big stuff slowly but can handle lots of things going on all the time [Martha] I don't know if that make sense to anyone ? [MEntity] Her mid-range is not unbelievable to us. [GeraldineB] maybe she IS a 40 but functions closer to 55-60 to cope with others [MEntity] That is correct. [Martha] may be why I need to get away from people regularly ? [Maureen] my Sage sister is at 80 -- and she's like that Martha [MEntity] The Cycle of Life Plans is fairly easy to map and to measure, and has a direct correlation to Numerology. This is one of the few Cycles that has such a direct means of measuring and mapping of it. Every life moves in cycles of completion, which are mapped in cycles of 9. However, this is not the case of the first year of life counting as a first count of 9. Instead, one would use Numerology to calculate his or her "Life Path Number" as an indication of where in the cycle one has entered into this incarnation. Using the known birthday and year is enough. It is not necessary for this to be accurate to an actual birthday, if that is not known, such as in adoption. It is the adopting of the birthday and year that is significant here. This calculation is probably familiar to most of our students as adding all of the numbers of your birth month, day, and year, and then continuing to reduce those numbers by addition until there is a single number. Using Troy as an example, with January 20, 1968, this would be 0+1+2+0+1+9+6+8 = 27, 2+7=9. Using the interpretations already set in Numerology, one can get a sense of what Essence was planning for this current lifetime, and where in its cycles of exploration it might be. To understand where you are within that greater context, then one would use the month and day of birth, added to the current year. So for Troy this would be 0+1+2+0+2+0+1+2 = 8. [GeraldineB] Michael -- since my adoption was completed when I was 7 years old -- and I can't remember the date, what would I use? [GeraldineB] just the current extrapolation based on Day/Month/current year? [MEntity] We suggest using whatever you have been using as your birth day, month, and year overall, since having to choose one. [GeraldineB] ok [MEntity] What we are doing here will be applied to a different Cycle we will describe in a moment, but doing both now is helpful. Troy, then, would be described as having a Life Path Number of 9, but is in an "8 year" of his Cycle of Life Plans. We invite each of you to share your results, as well. [Maureen] I'm a birth 6 in a 10 or a 1 year [Maureen] does the 10 become a 1? [MEntity] Always reduce to a single digit. [GeraldineB] apparently, I am 5 birth and 2 current [GeraldineB] and both Martha and Diane had to leave [Maureen] Is there any significance to being a Priest and having a 6 Lifetime? [Maureen] Or being a Sage and having a 5 Lifetime? [MEntity] Maureen, no, because you will also have every other number as a reference over your incarnations. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] sorta like Astrology -- you're probably never gonna duplicate any birth chart again [MEntity] What matters here, for now, is your number as it reflects your Cycle of Life Plans, or "personal year" number in Numerology. [Maureen] OK [MEntity] This Cycle is based on cycles of completion regarding themes, and anything related to those themes. These themes are described by the overall Life Plan/Path Number. Exploring the interpretation of your Life Path Number in Numerology, and where you are in your Cycle of Life Plans, can shed great light on the layers of themes being explored within the lifetime. In terms of where one might be in a Cycle of Life Plans, the numbers might be easily referenced as: 1 = Initiations/Beginnings; 2 = Cooperations/Nurturing; 3 = Productions/Expansions; 4 = Focus/Troubleshooting; 5 = Respite/Playtime; 6 = Intimacy/Resonance; 7 = Analysis/Learning; 8 = Empowerment/Harvesting; 9 = Reflection/Closure. These keywords are suggestions, but you may find other interpretations that resonate more. [GeraldineB] And this would be for the birth number? [MEntity] These keywords, then would be used to describe where you may be in your exploration of the theme described by your Life Path number. [Maureen] would concurrents be a different Life Plan number -- or the same? Aren't they usually the same Theme? [GeraldineB] yea -- I'm on a theme with my concurrents -- Revelation [Maureen] would the numbers also describe your Life Plan number? [MEntity] In answer to Geraldine: Life Path Number = MM+DD+YYYY of birth; Cycle of Life Plans = MM+DD (of birth) + current year YYYY [GeraldineB] ok -- that clarified it [MEntity] In response to Maureen: Concurrents may share a Life Path Number, regardless of when each was born, as the math would be what matters, not the numbers, but where one is in the Cycle of Life Plans might be different. [Maureen] I can see that [MEntity] There is no consistency that we can see in terms of those being the same across concurrents, though. [Maureen] so the same "theme" would be expressed through the Life Path Number -- but the different experiences would be collected for Essence through different Cycles of Life (i.e. what number year you are in)? [MEntity] The keywords we used above are relative to the shorter cycles within the Life Plans, but are not fair to the greater arc of the actual Life Plan. So being in an 8 year has a different context than being in an 8 lifetime. Think of the year number as the Casting and the "Role" as the Life Plan/Path number. Troy, then, would be described as being in an 8-Cast Year for a 9 Lifetime. This is yet another crude way of explaining, but it works for now. [Maureen] OK [GeraldineB] I cannot validate that my "Life Plan" number of 5 (Respite/Playtime) resonates at all with how my life has gone [MEntity] We suggest that you look up "personal year number" vs "Life Path number" when exploring your numbers here. [Maureen] OK - Thanks [MEntity] Geraldine, that is our point. A 5 year is very different from a 5 lifetime. [GeraldineB] I'd have to look closely at the 2 (Current) -- it seems a lot softer than I am (but I've got to look at it in context of my now Personality) [MEntity] We will help each of you in this for now: Give to us your Life Path Number (based on your entire birth date) and your Personal Year Number (based on your month and day added to current year). We already described the numbers as part of the Cycles of Life Plans (based on current year), but we will now describe the Life Path Numbers (based on birth year): [Maureen] Life Plan Number: 6, Personal Year Number: 2 [Maureen] Correction: Personal Year Number: 1 [GeraldineB] lol -- ok there we go again -- Life Plan Number 5 [MEntity] LIFE PLAN/PATH NUMBER THEME KEYWORDS suggested are: 1 = INDEPENDENCE/STRENGTH; 2 = INTIMACY/SHARING/PARTNERSHIPS; 3 = CREATIVITY/SOCIALIZING; 4 = GROUNDING/STABILITY/ENDURANCE; 5 = CONSTANT CHANGE/FLEXIBILITY/EXPANSION; 6 = HARMONY/PEACE/HEALING; 7 = SEARCHING/CURIOSITY/OBSERVATION; 8 = HAVING/LEADING/CONFIDENCE; 9 = ABUNDANCE/HUMANITARIANISM/HIGHER PURPOSE [Maureen] That is great Michael! [GeraldineB] that actually resonates [MEntity] Comparing these simplistic keywords between the Path Number and Year Number may help validate, but exploring each further in the context of Numerology can help expand upon that, then. Taking the numbers you offered: if Geraldine is in a 5 Lifetime, then the themes would be around Change/Flexibility and Expansion, but if she is in a 2 year, then it would mean that that greater theme is now being explored through having to work in Cooperation and using Nurturing. [GeraldineB] good, that makes sense for me [MEntity] This means that approximately every 9 years, the theme of 2 = Cooperation and Nurturing repeats itself in a new layer of the Life Path of Constant Change/Flexibility/Expansion. Maureen would be in a 1 cycle of new beginnings and initiations aimed at helping further explore her themes of Healing/Peace/Harmony. Keep in mind that we are referring to a completely different system from our own, but it works here in understanding this Cycle of Life Plans. [Maureen] that makes sense for me as well Michael [MEntity] We might more accurately describe these numbers, then, as Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans. Again, the only number relevant to the Cycles of Fulfillment of Life Plans is the "year number" based on the current year. The Life Plan number (based on birth year) is a part of a greater cycle we will describe in a moment. [GeraldineB] Is it possible to have a quick answer as to why someone like Holmes, the man who just killed 12 people and wounded 56 others would deviate so far from any of these descriptions? [GeraldineB] These would appear to be purely "positive pole" [MEntity] In response to the question regarding "negative" lifetimes, it would be correct to assess that these are more neutral, or aspiring, themes, but each can fall into negative states. A 5 Life Plan can bring great growth, expansion and flexibility for the individual, but can also fall into wreaking havoc, chaos, and suffering upon others. The craving for stimulation either attracts the constant change, or imposes it. We will not go into all of the negative states, as this is thoroughly covered in competent Numerology texts. REMAINING CYCLES As we have gone extensively beyond the time frame of this workshop, we will describe the remaining cycles briefly. The three cycles we already described are the most-immediately useful, with tangible references and impact, if you choose to understand and map them. Those first three cycles describe patterns that emerge as a result of what Essence infused into the life before "you" were born, and how those emerge. You will always have a choice in how those play out, regardless of their repetitive emergences. We realize, however, that it would not be useful to add on the remaining cycles, but to leave this exchange with the focus on the three that have been discussed. We will cover the remaining in another way through this channel. The Cycles covered here are The PERSONAL CYCLES - Cycles of Relating, Cycles of Comprehension, and Cycles of Life Plan. The next tiers are the: CYCLES OF EXPANSION, which include one's Cycles of Learning/Resistance; Cycles of Harmony/Discord; and Cycles of Creativity/Destruction; CYCLES OF PURPOSE, which are Cycles of Humor, Cycles of Discipline, and Cycles of Focus; and finally CYCLES OF DISCOVERY, which are Cycles of Healing, Cycles of Surrender, and Cycles of Acceleration. (Note: Since this session went 4-1/2 hours, Michael and Troy decided that the other Cycles will have to be done at some future time. Maureen and I have already discussed it with Troy -- hopefully, we'll be setting up another session in August that isn't an OMW, but will continue with this Cycle information. glb)
This question was originally posted by Jean on 5/31/08. I'm wondering if these sorts of questions have been asked and answered elsewhere but I haven't seen them. I did take a look through the archives but it could be me being not terribly computer savvy that I missed something. Also if anyone could point me in the direction of further information if this area hasn't already been explored I would love to be pointed that way. 1. Has the Michael entity commented about the significance (if any) of our names on the physical plane? 2. I noticed that in Messages from Michael as I went through the book that the entity refused to call one of the members by a nickname "Jack". I am also wondering if the Michael entity would comment about people who have had their names changed legally over the course of an individual lifetime, how that would relate to a false personality, etc.? 3.Do fragments often end up with the same first name over multiple lifetimes? 4. Has there been commentary about the use of email, screen-names and other nicknames taken on as a matter of religious ritual (for example, I believe many Christians are given or take a name at confirmation and I also know that many pagan groups have a name they use in their rituals)? 5. How does the name a person was given help them connect with their essence, if at all? 6. Is there a difference between having a single given name or having multiple given names? I was thinking specifically of infant adoption but also I have heard of parents being rushed to fill out a birth certificate and then later changing a child's name early in childhood (it seems like many of those people go back to the first name)? Is there some significance or connection to the first breath, ensoulment and then the first name that comes to mind for that person? 7. What can be said for persons who are not given an immediate name and are referred to as "Baby Boy/Girl Doe" and is the time frame of a name being chosen significant in some way? 8. If the original name is significant what can be said about people who are not aware of the original (true) name or are unable to know it? would it be important for them to find out? 9. Are middle and/or last names also important and how to they relate, if at all, to the false personality? 10. Is it important to know the names we held in past lives and would it be helpful for us to explore them or to get in touch with them? FROM MICHAEL: 1. Has the Michael entity commented about the significance (if any) of our names on the physical plane? Names are as significant to the individual as that individual determines it to be. Birth names are usually more significant to the one who chose the name than to the one carrying the name, but this can change over time as the individual either "grows into" the name, or alters it to his or her liking. There is validity to the numerological interpretations when done within the proper contexts, such as the full birth name describing a picture of the combined ideal of the personality as determined by Agreements among the caretakers and the individual, with the signature name being the refinement of that ideal by the individual, and any "nicknames" being a description of the self-image (if the nickname is chosen) or the imposed image (if the nickname was given). We will point out here that what is known as the "Chaldean" version of numerology is more accurate in this exploration. We will also point out that while names indicate an ideal for the personality, the birth date, time, and location are far more significant in terms of the individual's inherent design and "blueprint" for the life. 2. I noticed that in Messages from Michael as I went through the book that the entity refused to call one of the members by a nickname "Jack". I am also wondering if the Michael entity would comment about people who have had their names changed legally over the course of an individual lifetime, how that would relate to a false personality, etc.? Some of what made it to print in the book you reference was more an interpretation of our words than direct quotes or valid descriptions of real scenarios. When we described the relationship between False Personality, names, and particularly nicknames, this was interpreted at the time as being a conclusive description, but that is not the case. Names and nicknames often describe False Personalities, but not always. We say that they are often linked because names and nicknames describe an ideal or an interpretation, which is often inspired by False Personality. "False Personality" is a phrase we use to describe a Personality that has closed down the flow and participation of Essence in the life to a great degree, but for many a Chuck, Bob, WhipperSnapper, Debbie, or Ro, the inclusion of the soul in the life is of little concern and their happiness and fulfillment is not hindered by False Personality, even as their choices lean toward limitations and attachments. It is only as the soul grows older that False Personality becomes a factor of concern as consciousness becomes more and more a part of the life being lived. Then nicknames and names are no longer indicative of anything more than preference and play. 3. Do fragments often end up with the same first name over multiple lifetimes? We would not say "often;" no. 4. Has there been commentary about the use of email, screen-names and other nicknames taken on as a matter of religious ritual (for example, I believe many Christians are given or take a name at confirmation and I also know that many pagan groups have a name they use in their rituals)? Names bestowed or chosen for religious ritual or online identification are as subject to being indicative of False Personality as indicative of preference and play. Keeping in mind that names ultimately reference an ideal can help put this matter into perspective. 5. How does the name a person was given help them connect with their essence, if at all? Names have no bearing on the connection or rejection of Essence. 6. Is there a difference between having a single given name or having multiple given names? I was thinking specifically of infant adoption but also I have heard of parents being rushed to fill out a birth certificate and then later changing a child's name early in childhood (it seems like many of those people go back to the first name)? Is there some significance or connection to the first breath, ensoulment and then the first name that comes to mind for that person? We have seen greater weight of significance on the first name/s assigned, regardless of the rush to choose. Later names are just a refinement of the ideal. 7. What can be said for persons who are not given an immediate name and are referred to as "Baby Boy/Girl Doe" and is the time frame of a name being chosen significant in some way? The timing of the naming is not significant, as far as we can see, however, in instances where the final naming is a matter of convenience and not an ideal, the individual may go through a radical transformation of self-identity at some point in the life. 8. If the original name is significant what can be said about people who are not aware of the original (true) name or are unable to know it? would it be important for them to find out? Awareness of the naming is vital for it to have any bearing. Without that awareness, the naming is insignificant as an impact on the individual. 9. Are middle and/or last names also important and how to they relate, if at all, to the false personality? Middle and Last Names are a part of the picture of the ideal, so they are "important," if you will, especially when interpreted through numerological methods. These may, or may not, refer to False Personality, but are less-likely to symbolize the False Personality than a nickname or a first name, at least in Western cultures. 10. Is it important to know the names we held in past lives and would it be helpful for us to explore them or to get in touch with them? We have found no significance for a current Personality to know the names or nicknames of other Personalities from other lives beyond a crude method of identification, but as with the current name of a Personality, the significance can be as meaningful or as insignificant as the individual deems it to be. For some fragments, the naming of Personalities across lifetimes can be a practice in creativity, so in that light, it could be said to be significant to some degree.
