  1. We no longer have the option to choose a past life session from the services menu. So I'm wondering if anyone knows which session type to chose for this now. I know these take a while and are taxing for Troy so I want to choose the most appropriate one. Anyone know the answer? Thanks in advance.

    Gender identity

    My essence is 35% male and 65% female energy. I notice this in my appreciation for the female form. I do feel reasonably comfortable with my body but the female form feels like the preferred form and the one that I am most comfortable with. Now that I have chosen the male form, I am exploring the areas of manhood. I work with wheel loaders of a well known Swedish brand as a test driver and live out in the forest (occasionally cutting down trees for firewood). I am considered a manly man by most other than me. When it comes to sex, I often use my female lives to guide me and give me inspiration. It is a peculiar feeling to remember being of the other gender in the act of lovemaking. I can remember or feel how it is and what I like in respective body formats. It becomes a yin yang experience, the female and male form combined into one. Being female or male ceases to exist and you are simply human. This was at its clearest, when I was with my essence twin (35f65m). One time during lovemaking, we could feel our bodies merge. Afterwards we talked about what it was like and we had had the same experience of being simultaneously male and female. What I have noticed is that according to the Michael charts, I have the most satisfying experience with the opposite energy configuration. When I have been with a partner that has the same male female ratio as I, the sex tends to get awkward, uncertain and lack the oneness feeling. My current relationship with a 2.lvl old scholar (she's 70m30f) is very satisfying. She also knows that I am not much of a man, really...

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 1999] [MBV] I have a strong feeling that many of us knew each other in Atlantis. Are we together again to finish what we started there? [Michael_Entity] Some of you were there, yes, but we think your tasks may be newer than those approached in Atlantis. Most Atlantean-linked tasks have been played out. They may be similar, but we would have to look at each configuration individually.
  4. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: March 2000] [Barry] Would you comment on the seeming sudden urge for your students here to effect major changes in their lives? We have become excited recently at the thought of banning together and traveling as a group. [Michael_Entity] This is the Instinctive Center being explored within your Cadres. These are more memories than they are plans, though there are clues contained within the impulses that are important to each of you individually. This playful exploration appears to be allowing each of you to seriously support and “see” just what it IS that you would draw from as a talent or skill for contribution to a life you deem full of freedom. This can be applied without having to “leave your life behind” and pulling wagons, though some of you will do just that. [Barry] Is there a particular instance you can tell us where many of us may have traveled together and the circumstances? [Michael_Entity] There are three circles overlapping within the dialogue we have seen so far. Some of you traveled in Italy in support of what might be considered a Circus, but more a “freak show.” Some of you are remembering traveling in Medieval times from one place to another as a means to survive as pagans being oppressed by the new religion. Some of you are remembering being left behind, choosing not to travel in these instances, but determining to create “power spots” or anchor points. Though there are three distinct circles, it appears you all have had plenty more lives than these mentioned wherein there was a need for traveling for prosperity and support. In this exploration on your discussion list, explore it as it applies to your life currently, not as a means to “escape it.” From there, if the insight still leads to making a change, it will be full of clarity. [Barry] Do you think a “viable” commune could be created out of the students here? It seems that human emotion and CF’s keep communes from being successful usually. [Michael_Entity] We have always encouraged our Students from the beginning to do so, that we believe a community would be beneficial and viable. The Internet has become that community to a great degree. If the implementation of the commune/community can be done with intention and not as a means to escape, it is valid and part of our own agenda as well. We do not, however, believe any of you are free enough from Chief Feature to live turbulence free, but your skills in maneuvering through Chief Feature’s games would benefit you greatly.

    Renaissance Past Lives - Post 1 of 2

    Originally posted to eTLE by Geraldine _______________________________________ This is a series of questions and answers that Martha W gathered together into a single post on n.TLE. It concerns information about one of our Configurations (everyone belongs to more than one, even if all are not active). Maureen G., Martha W., Bobby A., and I have all asked questions which expanded on the topic(s). The entire Configuration includes Troy, Oscar, and the "Teachings" as additional members of the Septet (aka Septant). MARTHA: I'm adding this to the top, as we've filled it in since the comment I posted with it. Six of us here on TLE are part of a Septant Configuration (with the Teachings as the seventh member). Maureen got the original info on it, here, and here's how our Configuration was...configured...during the Renaissance: MICHAEL: In this Septant, "The Teachings" is the Love Position; Troy is the Knowledge; Maureen is the Power; Oscar is the Observer; Martha is the Eccentric; Bobby is the Compassion; and Geraldine is the Integrator. So, in this Renaissance version we have: Troy/Knowledge: Marcilio Ficino Maureen/Power: Diotifeci Ficino, Marcilio's father and personal physician to Cosimo Oscar/Observer: off studying quietly by himself Martha/Eccentric: Cosimo de' Medici and Francesco Petrarch Bobby/Compassion: Desiderius Erasmus Geraldine/Integrator: Aldus Manutius and Giovanni Cavalcanti (and another concurrent in France -- Clement Janequin) I was following up tonight on a past lifetime that I didn’t have a lot of information about. As part of my Soul Mosaic project, I had asked Michael to see if there were any Old soul lifetimes I had not heard about, and this “art patron” was one of them. Apparently I was Cosimo de’ Medici, who was the patron of Marsilio Ficino (Troy! as a Priest who studied astrology!), and our TLE Configuration was active. I’m sure we’ll be asking Michael more about all this. Usual whackadoodle caveats apply, but it sure is interesting. I also found this page on Ficino, and it said this about the patronage: Ficino's precocious talent was recognized by Cosimo de Medici, the leading citizen of Florence, who selected Ficino as a boy to lead the Florentine Platonic Academy. Cosimo encouraged Ficino to study Greek and then to provide the first Latin translations of On the Divine Wisdom and the Creation of the World, part of the Corpus Hermeticum attributed to Hermes Trismegistus, and then the first Latin translation of the whole of Plato's works. Cosimo's son Piero and grandson Lorenzo continued to encourage and support Ficino. Also, my past lifetime just before Cosimo was as an Italian humanist philosopher who influenced a Dutch philosopher (Bobby). Here's what we got tonight: MARTHA: I want to continue my question from last time about the lifetime you described as “A late 1400's and early 1500's patron of arts in France, contributing to what has come to be known as a "renaissance" period in art, culture, and science,” within the same parameters (I know Troy doesn’t want to take on “Project” questions in this format, so I’m not asking for that extreme level of detail. I’d like to get whatever we can at a level appropriate to this format, such as an overview of key events and if anyone I know was involved.) Last time, you concluded my time saying, “We will continue our exploration with you regarding your second lifetime reference, which is a part of the fairly well-known Medici family.” The only Medici I found in France around that time was Catherine, Queen of France, but the dates for her are a bit off from the time frame. The Medici family was of course based in Florence. MICHAEL: Our time frames conveyed to you can sometimes be "flexible" in how we see them versus how they fall into your linear history. We can be fairly accurate, but sometimes our broader references can require some honing. MARTHA: sure MICHAEL: In fact, everything we convey to you will always have the high possibility of needing clarification and refinement. MICHAEL: This is particularly true in a project such as this. MICHAEL: The lifetime in question here may be more likely to have been primarily active in the late 1400's, regarding patronage. MARTHA: I saw several in wikipedia in the 1400s, but in Florence MICHAEL: That would be correct. The patronage referred to was in a multitude of directions, extending into France, but should have been referred to as based in Italy. MICHAEL: This fragment would seem to be known as Cosimo of the Medici family. MARTHA: whoa MICHAEL: This personality, and our channel now known as Troy, worked on yet another project regarding expanding on the works initiated by others. Your time working out exchanges turned into benefit for many others, contributing to a movement of sorts. MICHAEL: We know that Troy, then, was known as Ficino. MARTHA: Marsilio Ficino? MICHAEL: These projects have been a favorite for the two of you in various formats, as you may have come to see hints of in your project. MICHAEL: That would be correct. MARTHA: Wow MICHAEL: Both of "you" were troublemakers, as can often be the case when your Essences move into projects together within a lifetime. MARTHA: LOL MARTHA: but well-funded troublemakers for once, it seems MICHAEL: By "troublemakers," we simply mean that there were great forces of opposition in place against some of your better ideals. This is not unfamiliar to either of you. MICHAEL: We are struggling to focus through Troy, as this is his first "hearing" of this lifetime, as he tends not to explore his past. MARTHA: I know *eye roll* * @GeraldineB frowny faces Troy . . .settle down, kiddo MARTHA: we're lucky if he even reads the transcripts MICHAEL: It is excitement. He "remembers" now. MICHAEL: Continuing.... MICHAEL: You may also see a pattern in your emerging philosophies together. MICHAEL: Many of our students were deeply moved by Humanist philosophies. MICHAEL: Many of our older students helped shape these. MARTHA: Yes, you said I was in the lifetime just before this Medici one, with Bobby MARTHA: also in Florence MARTHA: or Italy, rather MARTHA: And to confirm, are you talking about the Cosimo that founded the Medici dynasty? died 1464 MICHAEL: It would appear so. MARTHA: I'm sure there is a lot more to hear about this lifetime MARTHA: thank you MARTHA: Quickly- was our Configuration active? MICHAEL: Though not directly involved in the lifetime described, the fragment now known as "Bobby" was also involved, yes, expanding on the concepts of Humanism. MICHAEL: The Configuration was active MARTHA: cool! MICHAEL: His contributions were toward relief from religious dogma within the Church. MARTHA: Bobby's? MICHAEL: This would have been in an area known as Rotterdam of The Netherlands. MICHAEL: Yes. MARTHA: I'm sure we will talk more about it! MICHAEL: As past lives are explored with us, new details and threads can be uncovered that were previously unmentioned, missed, or seemingly non-linearly interjected, but this is because past lives are not static, and we uncover what we can, based on many factors. MICHAEL: Exploring the lifetime we have just described can lead to some fairly informative insights into your current life, as your next 5 years for your Configuration, appear to be strongly resonating with this past time period of lives. MARTHA: Next time we'll continue with this then, thanks! MICHAEL: This is the most we can get at the moment, without short-circuiting Troy. We say that only half-humorously. MARTHA: We don't want to do that!! ********************************************************************************************************** Updated with a follow up question on 1/14/2013: MARTHA: I’d like to follow up on my last exchange with you regarding the lifetime as Cosimo Medici. You said “Exploring the lifetime we have just described can lead to some fairly informative insights into your current life, as your next 5 years for your Configuration, appear to be strongly resonating with this past time period of lives.” Can you elaborate at this time? I’m interested in hearing about the people that were involved in that lifetime, and the resonance to this one. I certainly see the relevance with patronage and appreciation of Troy’s work. MICHAEL: Fragments involved at the time would appear to have been each member of the Septant, with the Essence who is now "Maureen" having been a practical man of medicine and father to the fragment who is now "Troy;" and the fragment who is "Bobby" having been involved at a distance through efforts to relieve the church of dogma in Rotterdam; and "Geraldine," then known as something similar to MICHAEL: "Calvincan," having been a rather ephemeral muse and intimate love of the fragment known as "Troy," while "Oscar" appears to have been peripheral student along the way, turning his learning into meaning for more personal reasons. MICHAEL: Pulling up details about a lifetime of such resonance through the channel with whom it resonates can take a bit more focus and effort than the usual accessing of Akashic Records. MICHAEL: We may have to clarify or correct anything that comes through to you, so we remind you that validation would need an extended period of time, with nothing shared here as being conclusive. MARTHA: OK MICHAEL: The resonance is simply relative to everyone involved benefiting from a teaching/philosophy, and aiming to preserve it for sharing and distribution, particular so that it can be found again in later lives. MARTHA: we found that Ficino was a probably-gay vegetarian :) MARTHA: and that he and Cosimo were intent on the concept of the immortality of the soul MICHAEL: Much of what the Configuration sought to accomplish was done so, in part, as a kind of "first step" through the Concurrent of the Sage-Cast Sage who is now known as "Geraldine," through fierce passionate committment to emphasizing and securing these philosophies to print. MARTHA: "Calvincan", or another personality that was his concurrent? MICHAEL: Another personality. MICHAEL: Yes, there are quite detailed similarities echoing between these lives. If each of you were to look at your positions within the active Configuration currently, you may find there is uncanny resonance to any documentation that might still be around for those previous lives. MARTHA: (apart from me not being the richest person alive this time) MICHAEL: What you do with that awareness is up to you, and little can be done with it beyond your power of recognition, your use of the resonance for inspiration and enthusiasm, and some amount of peace with the grander picture of efforts across lives in harmony. MARTHA: I think we all got a kick out of it MICHAEL: If nothing else. MARTHA: Geraldine was resonating to someone named Aldus, could that be the concurrent MICHAEL: Yes, that is correct. MARTHA: Aldus Manutius GERALDINE: BINGO! MARTHA: lol ********************************************************************************************************** Updated with a follow up question on 1/16/2013: MARTHA: To continue with everyone’s recent interest in the Humanists, can you tell me more about “my” lifetime as the mid-1400s Italian Humanist philosopher that you said influenced Bobby’s Erasmus lifetime? Obviously one of the overlapping concurrents was Cosimo de’ Medici (1389-1464). It’s interesting to me to see that Essence progressed from what I assume is the other concurrent – the French farmer who longed to join the Renaissance in the 1300s – to being a philosopher, and then to being the person that seems to have funded a big chunk of the Renaissance! This also brings up a question Geraldine had about her concurrents, Aldus Manutius (1449-1519) and Giovanni Cavalcanti (1444-1509). Her concurrents and mine would seem to be not only overlapping in terms of the timeframe, but also in the same area and the same sphere of interests. I know that’s not impossible, but not common. This is what you told me already about that philosopher: “Though there were concurrents that overlapped, we will focus on the lifetime that appears to have been born in the mid 15th Century CE as a humanist philosopher in Italy, whose works did, in part, inspire the fragment you now know as "Bobby" in his own writings from The Netherlands later.” MARTHA: and Hello! MICHAEL: Starting at the beginning of your post: MICHAEL: The lifetime in question appears to have been inaccurately delivered as "mid-1400's" and would need correction to "mid-14th Century CE." The lifetime in question would be recognized on record as that of "Francesco Petrarch." MICHAEL: We wish to clarify that our access to names is because our channel has glanced through some of the information that has been shared in growing response to these lifetimes in question, which allows us to access those more readily through cross-referencing, than if we were to only have the Akashic Record. MARTHA: Oh good! MICHAEL: And Hello back to you. MICHAEL: Time frames, geographical locations, and names will always tend to be details that may shift and change over time for necessity of correction and increase in accuracy. MICHAEL: Or, rather, fluctuations in accuracy. MARTHA: I understand MICHAEL: As for concurrents within the same region and same interests, this can happen, and none would be the wiser, so to speak. MICHAEL: Crossing paths is quite rare, but meeting is even rarer. One of the benefits and safety buffers of those concurrent lives at the time were the inclination for such introspection and philosophizing. Even when crossing paths, one may not notice the other. As far we can see, no concurrent of those times actually met, even as their presence may have had influence upon each other's circles. GERALDINE: Cavelcanti and Manutius were both part of the Hellenist Academy -- how could they not meet? MICHAEL: Your ideas of what this "academy" entailed may be misleading. It was more a network of ideas that were shared, rather than any emphasis on a symbolic, central location. MICHAEL: It was not used in the same way that one might think of an "academy" now. MARTHA: not like a school? MARTHA: Were there any other Michael students or people I know involved with Petrarch? MICHAEL: No. More like a loose network that aimed for gatherings when possible. GERALDINE: alas [timemark] MICHAEL: Consider how our students work together now. The act of sharing of our teachings could be referred to as "The Michael Teachings Academy." We remind you that many involved in this period of time were already students of our teaching, and you see how organized this teaching is even now among our students. MICHAEL: Some students were far more involved in keeping up with gatherings than other students. MICHAEL: Some would gain from the sharing of insight and discussion, later, through sub-groups and friendships among members. MICHAEL: It was not a strict structure and schedule for attendance among members.

    I would like to channel Michael however I have some questions. I am hoping someone can describe the channeling experience. When you make an appointment how is it that you connect with Michael, through chat? If so is there a link to follow? I would first like to channel Michael to discuss my past lives. I am wondering how many questions does the time slot allow on average? Also I am wondering if I should phrase any questions a certain way, or differently from the way I phrased them below. I had a very vivid dream once that felt like a memory. I would like to ask Michael specifically if this dream of me on a journey in the desert with a companion was in fact memory of of a past life. Who and when was I and also who was my companion. Also, should I describe the dream more thoroughly for Michael? I would also like to know if any of my past lives carry a residual imprint in my current life that effects my attitudes and choices. I wish to inquire if I was ever lived as a person of significance in history and if so what was my impact to the time period? I would like to know (you might be able to answer this question for me here) if a birthmark is a residual imprint from a past life from a trauma or death. If so I would like to know what my birthmark indicates as far as manner of death or weapon and why I was killed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  7. This question was originally posted by Jon on 11/14/08. My understanding is that it is possible to have had a "past life" in what we would consider the future... Is this true? Have any of the fragments making up the Michael entity had incarnations in what we would consider the future? What was the highest level of technology available to them? If it was significantly different from our own, does that fundamentally change the experience of being human? FROM MICHAEL: As the soul ages, the capability of incarnating in various time points within a certain range is possible, though usually not of interest to most. There are some fragments who explore the dynamics of time in a way that this non-sequential process of incarnation is valuable, but for most, it is of little meaning to do so. In terms of themes (or Clusters), Essence can process experiences sequentially, even though the lifetimes contributing to that Cluster/theme may be from non-sequential points in time. In the same way that you can see the entirety of a year and glance at various days within that year on a large wall calendar, so can your Essence "glance" at various incarnations within a certain range of time during the incarnational cycle and extract experiences that can then contribute to themes, even if non-sequential. So while it is true that some may break the sequential process of incarnating, it is rare. In most cases, any reference to that lack of sequence is simply a reference to the way Essence processes lifetimes. Our last incarnation was about 5,000 years ago, so our "technology" was quite different for our physical lifetimes, and while this does have an impact on the experience of being Human, it does not limit the capacity for learning beyond those contexts. Consider a current Professor at a College who is not completely submerged in social technology as his students are as a primary context. She/He may not be submerged in those particular experiences, but certainly has the option to explore them, and certainly has no bearing on his particular experience as a Human and what he can contribute or take from life. In our case, we actually have even more direct access and experience with technology than most who are Physical because we are not constrained to one body or one linear context.
  8. Originally posted to eTLE by Geraldine ___________________________________ Read the two articles, one posted as Post 1 of 2, and the one on Maureen's blog, as these are followup questions to those "in a sense." This session is more about past lives and how they affect later Personalities. I have a very strong affinity for Aldus Manutius. This was one of those "instant" moments of recognition. I'd validated that Aldus was "me" before Michael said. My items of synchronicity were: 1) Had been in the printing business during the 70s, typesetting most specifically, and type and fonts were my passion; 2) I totally was attracted to anything electronic that typed and owned some expensive equipment; 3) For some strange reason, I'd purchased a leather-bound cenutry-old book on a PBS auction held at KQED in San Francisco in 1976. It was all of the issues for one year of "The Aldine," a fine arts magazine from long ago. 4) Fell in love with the idea of personal computers and when Aldus Pagemaker software was released, I hungered for it. These are powerful clues when accumulated from the past -- every one was a "clue" to Aldus Manutius and his publishing house, "The Aldine Press." He also invented italicized type. Team TLE POF October 27, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley GeraldineB: I'm uneasy whenever I discover that any of "us" were famous personages during other incarnations. I'm especially uneasy with my three concurrents who were alive during the Renaissance: Aldus Manutius, Giovanni Cavalcanti and Clement Janequin. I would like to know more about how these three lifetimes accomplished their Life Tasks with Essence. Also, I resonated most strongly with Aldus Manutius (in fact guessed him as a possible previous incarnation) -- I would like to know more about this connection. GeraldineB: Also, Manutius had strong connections to Greek "everything." It was the language of his household and printing business in Venice. He was "Greek-driven." What previous lifetimes so deeply affected this fragment? And, oddly enough, while it was Manutius who resonated so strongly with my own life choices, I've never been a major fan of all things Greek, let alone the classics -- which impinged heavily on both Cavalcanti and Manutius' lifetimes. <~MEntity: There are long stretches of time when a fragment has no high-profile Personalities, and long stretches of time when there are no active means of recording any high profile personality if there is one. Because of the nature of Cadres 1, 2, and 3 in clearing paths for following Cadres, there do tend to be Personalities of higher profile, whether recorded, or not. It happens that records have been fairly stable for the past few thousands years in many ways that allow for referencing higher profile personalities. <~MEntity: There is no need to be alarmed. GeraldineB: Just don't want to get caught up on a runaway train of "specialness" <~MEntity: It is a misnomer to describe a past life as "affecting" a present life. It is more accurate that the present life "draws" on the past. So the Greek themes were drawn into that life rather than infused into it. The interests and theme of that life were because of the history of fonts, writing, methods for "printing," which drew heavily from the Greek. <~MEntity: At least, in his opinion and understanding at the time. <~MEntity: However, the previous lives of note would have been 3 lives between 800 BCE to 650 BCE, all in Greece and related to developing expressions in written form. MEntity: It is not uncommon for one Personality to find no resonance, and even repulsion, to those attractive and meaningful things to another Personality. While the Essence among your various Personalities are the same, the Personalities are fragments of that Essence, and their own identities. If each were only a copy of what has come before, it would be very difficult to learn and grow and explore. MEntity: It is not required of any personality to resonate to another personality, anymore than this would be true of those not of the same Essence. MEntity: As for "the specialness train," we highly doubt you would fall for this alure and false glamor. You are not one to draw from another's identity as a means to form your own. MEntity: This is not to say that you cannot relate to, be inspired by, and align yourself with any past life, other person of significance, or inspiring figure. MEntity: The resonance you share so strongly with Manutius is the value of print. It is what we will call one of your most valued life forces in this life. It is how you stay connected to the world, to the intangible elements of this life that are of such value to you. Print is not taken for granted. There is much that you could live without, but without words, without language, without communication of ideas in forms and expression, this life would seem to be fairly lifeless. MEntity: There is great depth of appreciation shared "between you" in that regard. MEntity: There may be more that you find of resonance in exploring that life, but it is this that is at the core, as far as we can see. MEntity: Do you have further questions about this? Geraldine_B: this makes sense -- plus, my own background in printing and typesetting Geraldine_B: not at this time -- just searching for understanding of complex ideas Geraldine_B: as always, you shine a light of "new" onto older topics This post was edited by GeraldineB at October 31, 2015 4:25 PM EDT
