    2007 Overleaves

    2007 OVERLEAVES Here is our perspective of the energy for the time period of your new year 2007 in terms of "Overleaves." Though energies shift, change, and adapt all year, there is a general energy that can be said to affect the calendar year, at least in terms of your shared reality. Our Overleaves system can be used to describe any collection of energies, ranging from the dynamics of the actual Personality to the general “mood” of a room, society, fictional character, theme of groups, or a planet’s general atmosphere of consciousness. In addition to this, when a block of time is selected, that time frame can be translated into a description of energies based on what we perceive as the momentum of events, consciousness, and choices that will POTENTIALLY contribute to that period of time. The Overleaves for a year, then, are our interpretation of those events, consciousness, and choices as we see that they are most likely to be brought to bear in your world. The more participating one is in “the world,” the more likely these energies will be of concern, though one’s inactivity does not exempt one from world or local energies, anymore than staying inside can take away the fact of a rainstorm. The rainstorm outside can have as much an effect on one inside as on one who is outside, depending on personal interpretations and experiences of that rainstorm. The very basic energy, or basic context, of a year can be described in two Overleaves: the Role and the Center. These two basic energies are those that can contribute to your year feeling "comfortable" or "challenged" during the year unfolding, depending on your own Overleaves and your method of participation in "the world." These two energies are most obvious in the first three months of a year, but their effects will remain steady throughout the year. In addition to these basic energies, the GOAL of the year will become implemented in those first three months, approximately. It can be said that ALL of the Overleaves we use to describe the year are in effect ALL year, but the particular frames of time described below are the "seasonal" emphasis of those particular Overleaf qualities. General “Seasonal” Energy emphasis: The ENTIRE YEAR is based within the energies of the ROLE and CENTERING. January through March implements and emphasizes the GOAL. April through June implements and emphasizes the MODE. July through September implements and emphasizes the ATTITUDE. October through December implements and emphasizes the CHIEF FEATURE. With all of that being explained, we would describe the highest probable energy for the year 2007 with these Overleaves: 2007 OVERLEAVES ROLE: Warrior CENTERING: Higher Intellectual PART OF CENTER: n/a GOAL: Dominance MODE: Observation ATTITUDE: Realist CHIEF FEATURES: Stubbornness While we do not, and cannot, "predict", we can share with you what these energies may mean for you in the year ahead, but first, we will look at the previous year as a means to help put the current year into perspective. Last year started and ended within the context of Emotional energies, following the Higher Emotional energies of 2005. In years described as Higher in Centering, there are events that show up as fairly global in impact and shock, while in years of Lower Centering, the emphasis is usually cumulative and local. With the impact of the Indian Ocean Tsunami at the near-beginning of 2005 and Hurricane Katrina later in 2005, the year of 2006 may have seemed fairly quiet. In any year with Higher-Center emphasis, the impact is usually of a global nature, and any Emotional-oriented year tends to manifest itself literally and symbolically through the element of Water. One can see that 2005 was water-oriented in terms of global impact; however, 2006 was Emotionally-centered, yet there were fairly few water-related disasters, or disasters, in general. We would say in response to this observation that the additional Emotional year of 2006 that followed the previous two years of emotional energy (following the Emotional Centering of 2004, the Higher Emotional Centering of 2005) was actually an attempt at respite for grounding the emotions back into something bearable again. In other words, if one were to look at last year’s Centering, we described it as Emotionally Centered, Intellectual Part. As there was a general, collective interest in healing emotional wounds from the past, this could only be done through the grounding provided by the addition of Moving energy. Bringing in Moving energy helped bridge the Emotions and Intellect. For instance, movies began to be released in 2006 as expressions of this grounding, depicting the most devastating disasters of the most recent years in ways that helped many come to terms with, explore, or face their feelings. This is a very simple example of the Moving part expressing itself as a form of healing the rift between Intellect and Emotion. With this undercurrent of Moving Energy, the common denominator among most accidents and disasters throughout 2006 was actually GRAVITY-related or GROUND-related. Mining disasters; collapses of buildings; dropping, or misguiding, of airplanes; ground wars; etc. were the more local, cumulative effects of 2006. In your personal world, the emotional energy of 2006 may have manifested in literal leakages, plumbing issues, small floods, and even random, emotional breakdowns that led to tears, though you may have also brought in the balance of Moving Energy through physical ailments, physical accidents, falling down, collisions, etc., anything that brought your attention to the processes of the Body in relation to your Emotions and Intellect. However it manifested for you in 2006, the point was to bring to the surface the emotions relating to the past as a means to help make room for your future. Now we will look at the basic energies that appear to be unfolding for 2007: With the context of WARRIOR being emphasized this year, order, structure, police forces, protection, loyalty, judicial systems, politics, home, and family will most likely be highlighted throughout the year. For the most part, we see a strong momentum for a major, global debate with one side emphasizing tradition and the other side emphasizing progression, in varying contexts. What has come to be passively accepted as a basic structure of society in many areas of the world will most likely find an emphasis on a complete revamping of that structure, with conflict arising between those who wish against any change (or, at least, a return to past traditions), and those who wish to support an evolution and update to accommodate the necessity of empathy in a Mature world. While this could be said to have been going on in the world for a long time, we merely point out that 2007 will find this to be a stronger emphasis than usual on settling the debate. Because this is an Ordinal Role year, the impact of this debate will most likely permeate even the most passive of homes, bringing up personal issues of structure, order, loyalty, and politics within the individual home and family. Many issues that may have been hidden, repressed, or tolerated will now find themselves brightly highlighting the home and requiring a creative solution for all to find peace. As this is a Warrior year, we also see a strong emphasis on self-help, personal development, and relationship improvements. Anything that stands in the way of loyalty within or without will most likely be brought out for examination. We also see a return to physical objects over intangible objects, such as a need to hold books and newspapers as a means for gathering knowledge, rather than just through the internet. In light of that, we have seen a new line of electronic products to be released that emphasizes this very tangibility, giving retrospective designs to more intimate electronics so as to return a sense of touch. With the Warrior energy of the year being highlighted, we can also state that this year would be, in general, a year of TOUCH, bringing a sense of importance to texture, environment, and human interactivity in ways that may have been missing for some time. The Warrior energy will also bring about a prominence of attention for those deemed to be “underdogs,” or in need of strong support. We believe this will be most apparent in the continued announcements of those who wish to make a difference in the political and social circles affecting large populations. Underdogs who would normally have no chance in politics will now have a chance to generate strong support for elections to come. On the less-comfortable side of all of this, weaponry will also be highlighted throughout 2007, with announcements revealing warring tools that might be deemed “terrifying.” Gun use, gun abuse, and gun accidents may also find a strong rise in numbers over 2007. Those who work in fields of politics, order, justice, authority, guidance, will most likely find PERSUASION to be of utmost importance, which is an emphasis on encouraging others to CHOOSE to do what is best for them, rather than push them, bully them, or scare them into doing what has been deemed as “best.” We believe a strong shift in politics and media will have communication geared toward the encouragement of intelligence of individual choice, rather than as pre-packaged concepts and perceptions expected to be consumed without question. On the more restrictive side of the Warrior energy for the year, some may express this as COERCION, which is a forcing of direction upon another, and this will most likely not be met with passivity. 2007 brings a shift toward a feeling of motivation, purpose, meaning as a result of the Warrior energy, so we suspect that this will bring up a great deal of exciting prospects for most of our students, though some of you may simply interpret this supportive energy as a “slam” against you, emphasizing your failures and distance from your intended goals. However you experience this wave of energy for the year, it will do you well to remember that how you experience this is YOUR interpretation, as the energy is neutral. You are not trapped by your interpretations. As usual, it is not uncommon for the Role of the year to also bring to the media those who have strong Overleaves or Role that is resonant to that energy. As this is a Warrior year, it will not be surprising to have a great deal of Warriors brought into the media’s light, with varying reasons, along with a higher proportion of Warriors exiting the planet over the year. In addition to this, it will not be surprising to find yourself in contact with more Warriors or in more intimate contact with Warriors in your personal life. The year ahead is centered in the HIGHER INTELLECTUAL, which is an emphasis on higher inspiration and TRUTH. As we have stated before, a year that emphasizes a higher center is a year that tends toward global impact of events, disasters, revelations, shifts, etc. This will most likely be another of those years with a startling focus on exposure, the “truth,” and deep, personal meaning behind the force of Choice, individually and collectively. Another angle of exploration regarding this energy would be through the highlighting of TELEPATHY. In this case, telepathy may be as simple as the word implies, with the paranormal capabilities of humans being showcased in some way, or it may have varying meaning, such as surprising cross-species communications and revelations. For those who wish to remain locked in tradition and familiarity (as mentioned earlier), the Higher Intellectual energy may be quite uncomfortable to process, as it will be very difficult to reconcile refusing to change after knowing “the truth.” With a strong focus on the importance of Truth, this year may bring a great deal of tears, as tears are the biological reaction to the acceptance of Truth. It may help you to remember that your seemingly unwarranted tears may actually be a higher function of embrace as the year unfolds. DOMINANCE will be the underlying theme of emphasis this year, and especially over the first few months of your year. Most fragments seem to be experiencing this as a “soft determination” for making much-needed changes in the life. We state “soft determination” because we can also see that many of you are quite exhausted, uninspired, and this determination will require some patience and time to fully find its footing. As January passes, most of you will probably find that footing and begin to sense a renewed control over your choices, your feelings, and your futures. In the world, this energy will most likely show up as prominent personalities taking very powerful and deliberate stances in the media as a means to implement some form of transformational change. Of course, there will be those who do this through genuine leadership, and those who simply stand as dictators, wishing to impose their force. Not only does this have a strong possibility of standing out in your media, but in your personal life, as well. As you open to the changes you wish to implement in your life, you will either find yourself embodying Dominance, or attracting another person to help guide you through those changes. It will be up to you to discern whether you have turned to a dictatorial version of yourself, or a dictatorial person, as a form of guidance. If you find yourself in that position, it will do you will to return yourself to a state of “soft determination,” bringing a gentleness, silence, and patience to the motivation for change. With WARRIOR, HIGHER INTELLECTUAL, and DOMINANCE being the most emphasized energy in these first few months, we would suggest two specific approaches to help you benefit from that energy: ONE: EMBRACE CHANGE. This appears to be another pivotal year in terms of directions for personal lives, societies, and countries. It is not a time of peace or rest, but a time of shifting and evolution. This energy can be experienced as turbulent, or exciting, but it is as natural and as neutral as the collective growth of your own body. It is not an imposition, but it is natural. Those who embrace change tend toward adaptability and improved maturity of intelligence and emotions, while those who refuse change, or find it to be an imposition, tend to retreat into regressive positions of intelligence and feelings. While both choices are valid, it can do wonders for the individual living within a world of change to actively participate in those changes. TWO: DO WHAT YOU WANTED TO DO. In a year that emphasizes truth, change, leadership, and inspiration, it will help your position within your life, your community, and your world to actually DO what you intended to do. Follow through. Make a plan. Set up a chart for progress. Get started. Do just that ONE thing that you’ve always put off. The fulfillment within the progress of that active participation in your life will greatly increase your sense of adaptability to change, since you will be gently leading your choices in directions you wish to create, rather than merely rolling with the shifts that may appear to be happening around you. In light of all of this energy to start the year, it may be helpful to think of CHANGE and DOING and TRUTH as ingredients of PEACE. To the extent that one, or all, can adapt, do what is wanted to be done, and evolve to embrace higher truths, is the extent to which a world has the capacity for true peace. Happy New Year. -Michael

    Appearances and Truth

    [Extracted from OMW: The Truth, Love & Energy of You & Your Life] Maureen: So for someone who has a Realist Attitude -- the Truth that will "set them free" is "It is what it is"... MEntity: We do not prefer the phrase, "it is what it is," as this is disempowering, and untrue in many instances. It is also encouraging of resignation for those with the Realist Attitude. A different way of understanding the Realist and Truth might be that the Realist SEES LIFE AS IT APPEARS. The Realist in the Positive Pole sees exactly what is presented, what is present, and can grasp how it looks, and then make choices from there, all the while knowing that what is presented, what is present, and how it looks IS ONLY THE SURFACE Many a Realist can fall into the negative pole because the mistake is made that appearances are The Truth.

    Realist Attitude Elaboration

    [Excerpt from Ask Michael: March 2014] Kurtis: Hi Michael, I'd like to ask for elaboration on the Realist Attitude.... MEntity: The Realist Attitude is the Exalted, Action Attitude. Attitudes describe a base philosophy through which life is interpreted. In this case, the Realist interprets life through the larger patterns of experiences that have proven to be trustworthy. These experiences tend to be tangible experiences. Anything outside of that collection of tangible patterns and experiences is not considered to be "realistic." This is not to say that the Realist is not open to new, tangible experiences that would build upon previous tangible experiences, but that if it is not already within that range, it is simply not trustworthy. In other words, if it is worth questioning, then it is not "realistic" to count on it. This can tend to leave the Realist with a very refined, but broad, net of what is considered trustworthy and "real." When the Realist is in the Positive Pole, OBJECTIVITY, it means that there is no investment in what is that range of tangible experiences. That Realist is open to all experiences, and if it moves into that range of trust, then so be it, but if not, then so be it. The Positive Realist simply sees WHAT IS. The Realist in the Negative Pole, SUBJECTIVE, starts to become invested in what is wished to be real, what is expected to be dependable, and what is longed for. Their interpretation of experience then shifts outside of its range of trust, and moves more into that state of investment. It is no longer about WHAT IS, but about WHAT IS NOT. And the effort to turn WHAT IS NOT, into WHAT IS.

    Realist Attitude

    [Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2014] Reality is often divided between what is real to yourself, and what is real to everyone. Some lean toward emphasis on only what is real to themselves, and others tend to lean toward what is real to everyone. For example, if there is a railing lining a boardwalk, it is real to everyone. It just is. There is no one who will come to that boardwalk without that railing being a part of the reality. If they come to the boardwalk where there is no railing, they are in a different reality. There is a consistency in what is a shared reality that is not dependent upon beliefs, upon individuals, and upon expectations. It just is. And then there is the individual reality that is based upon interpretation, experience, history, fears, expectations, beliefs, etc. So that very same railing that just “is” can also be offensive to some, and beautiful to others because of personal aesthetics. If two people bang into the railing, one will simply own his stumbling into it and move on, while another will be angry and blame the railing for being of poor design and in the way. So that single object exists just as it is, and then it also exists as it is experienced and interpreted. That is the simplified range of “reality." For the Realist, it is an on-going practice to reconcile those two fairly distinct points within the range of reality. Most Realists will choose one over the other, particularly in younger Soul Ages, but in the older Soul Age, it becomes important to reconcile one's personal experience of reality with the reality, itself. And this is what is meant by the Poles that make up the Attitude of Realist, with its Positive Pole of Objectivity, and Negative Pole of Subjectivity. As with all of our system, “negative” only describes a more limited, restricted end of the spectrum, while “positive” only describes a more expansive, inclusive end of the spectrum. When one is in Subjectivity, one can only interpret reality in term of what it means to himself. It does not matter what it means on its own, or to anyone else. When one is in Objectivity, the personal experience is allowed, but does not usurp or eclipse the validity of the independent reality or the reality of others’. If a Realist in the Positive Pole bangs into the railing, he will allow himself his reaction, note the personal reality of that experience that was probably painful, but also just note that it was a railing. He bumped into it. That is all that happened.

    The Balanced Realist

    [Excerpt from Energy Report: September 2014] As you pass through September, try to keep in mind that the balanced Realist has the ability to function in objective perspective even while subjectively experiencing. The Positive Pole of Objectivity includes your Subjectivity; it does not exclude your experience. The extremes that have been experienced by many of our students has been in Subjectivity, which can show up as either overwhelming submersion into experience, or numbing, paralyzing distancing from one’s experiences. ... Objectivity helps to bring a better picture of experiences, but still allows for the experiences that are part of that picture.

    Out of Balance

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- July 2007] [Cyprus] This is sort of a personal question, but I am sure I am not the only on that this happens to, so I thought it could benefit others as well. I have been feeling very overwhelmed lately. I feel as if I am either on high or completely off. I am much more comfortable in a sort of middle area, I can’t find any balance. No matter what I seem to do I can’t seem to get there. Please advise. [Michael Entity] The Energy Report will most likely address this issue as your month of July moves into the exploration of the ATTITUDE and the Attitude this year is what we have described as REALIST. For those who are not familiar with the energy of Realism, which you are not, then this energy can feel overwhelming and even a bit painful. In addition to this, the examination over the month of July appears to us to be a deep examination of SELF and what is true about you at this point in your life. This, in itself, can be painful, as what we will call “stuff” comes to the surface for examination that is not particularly enjoyable. Without understanding that this wave of energy is moving through, especially for one who resists Realism, the energy can feel like a constant electrical current that simply will not stop. When there are breaks in the flow, then the body feels inclined to withdraw into sleep as respite before the next current begins. Understanding that this energy is simply available for WHEN YOU WISH TO USE IT, then you can find appropriate ways to ground what is not used. In your case, the use of the energy could best be used to address your anxiety over your changes in work and geographic locations/commute. You really do not like changes of this sort, so it would do you well to grasp that your participation in the change is one of CHOICE, not imposition, and that it is okay. When you wish not to have the energy current affecting you, a shower can help dissipate it, but you also have the ability to simply use your consciousness to state that “this is not my energy,” and give it a few moments to fall back to the earth. We will also say that part of the “stuff” that will come up for you, and part of the energy current that runs through you now, is related to the extended emotional experience during Troy’s battle with his illness and your inability to be within his presence. You have not fully “forgiven” yourself for this (which is not a necessary act), but you are carrying the jumble of energy until you have contact with Troy. This will do no good for either of you, so it is Good Work to dissipate it as you can.

    You And Your Attitude

    [Reproduction of Michael Speaks: You and Your Attitude] [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We understand the topic to be that of Attitudes as they are defined within our teaching. Of course, there are 7 Attitudes, as there are 7 of every other Overleaf in our system. The 7 Attitudes are the Neutral or Assimilative PRAGMATIST, the Inspirational Stoic and Spiritualist, the Expressional Skeptic and Idealist, and the Actional Cynic and Realist. The Attitudes are specifically your personal means to interpret reality. The Attitudes could easily be said to be The 7 Basic Philosophies, as much of what is our more complete system now has been found isolated in various teachings throughout the ages. Each Attitude can easily find a correlation of a philosophy, which can shed a great deal of light on your personal Attitude. The Attitude could be said to be the “pivot” or “hinge” within our Personality System around which all other facets of your Personality move. Because the Attitude is intrinsically linked to your Intellect, the Attitude can “make or break” your sense of peace, trust, wholeness, etc. Whether you are Intellectually Centered or not, you still have an Intellect, and that Intellect works hard to interpret and make sense of reality. So, too, does your Attitude. It will go a long way toward freeing you from the traps of the Attitude and Intellect if you understand that it is not necessarily “the point” to “make sense” of reality, because literally, it is the opposite: your senses MAKE reality. Though we say your Attitude “interprets” reality, it may be more effective to understand that your Attitude “filters” reality. Both are valid descriptions. Though an Attitude is far from an imposition, it CAN be a limitation if you find you are not able to function within your ;particular Attitude's full spectrum of use. It can easily be said that, from the absolute worst struggles, to the most trivial of frustrations, these experiences are directly a reflection of how you are using your Attitude. When your Attitude is in its Negative Pole, regardless of what that may be, you have determined that you have completed your need for input for your basic philosophical stance. When the Negative Pole of the Attitude is in control, reality loses its creativity and flexibility, and instead becomes a tangled mess that must be understood immediately, even if the means to do so have not even come to pass. We can speak generally of Attitudes because the basic experience is quite consistent; it is the HOW of it all that is different among them. For instance, an Idealist in the Negative Pole and a Cynic in the Negative Pole will both share the struggle of trying to understand something within a limitation of input, but the Idealist will “naively” bumble his way through, while the Cynic will use “denigration” to destroy anything outside his comprehension. In the case of the Cynic, we do not mean an attempt to literally destroy, but that the Cynic will actively fight to remove any contradictions from his determined perception. In the case of each Axis of Attitude, you will find when they are in the Negative Pole, the reaction of the Attitude is to eliminate the Positive Pole experiences. When the Stoic is “resigned,” he will use inspiration to lead others into resignation, to validate his own perceptions. The Spiritualist will use inspiration to impose his beliefs on others as strongly as possible, to remove the need for verifying his perceptions. The Skeptic will simply express strong suspicions, riling others into an insecure space of perception, to remove the need for investigation. The Idealist will naively take on lofty goals and intentions, either with or without awareness, setting himself up for failure, so as to remove the experience of coalescence, which is the bringing together of parts to make a whole. The Cynic will actively remove all that contradicts his own determined perception. The Realist will insist that her perceptions are based in fact, even against the strongest of feedback that she is inaccurate, so as to remove her from having to be Objective. In addition, the Pragmatist will continue doing things, thinking about things, expressing things, exactly as they have worked for her to her satisfaction, regardless of the fact that input is dictating that there are more practical ways for the same things. The reason the Negative Pole is so strongly interested in eliminating the Positive Pole experiences is because the Attitude is the “brother or sister” to the Chief Features. We speak of these traits with anthropomorphic descriptions, only for the sake of relating, but we do not wish for you to mistake this means of description as if these parts of you are a separate consciousness. We do not say that they are, nor do we imply that they are. Because of our limitation of time, we will quickly point out what we believe may be the most important concern for your understanding of the Attitudes. Since the Attitude can be your prison or your means to complete freedom, we believe that when you are struggling in any area of your life, the first place to look would be to your Attitude. In understanding your Attitude, you would clearly be able to see that you may be in the Negative Pole, but the fastest and most effective means to move yourself out of it, is simply to choose a different angle of perception. Since the Attitude, while in the Negative Pole, so intently seeks to remove the experience of the Positive Pole of your Attitude, the “trick” is to use the Positive Pole of the Attitude that shares your Axis. If the effort is made, within minutes your life can change; or at least your attitude toward it, which can then lead to changing your life. When the Spiritualist is lost in her Beliefs and continues to find she is blocked from real, fulfilling Verification of her perceptions, it can free her to “slide” to the Positive Pole of Stoicism, which would be Tranquility. When Belief is in control, there is usually a strong need to get others to share in the belief, even if you, yourself have not Verified its place in your life. When the Spiritualist slides to Tranquility, she relaxes and surrenders gently to her perceptions. This then allows her to Verify things for herself, instead of finding others to do it for her. On the other hand, the Stoic may have given up on his life, resigning, which is a passive stance to the life. If he were to slide to Verification, he would be able to find that much of what he has resigned himself to is not even valid anymore as an imposition. We may not be able to go through all of the Attitudes with examples, but we will note that the Pragmatist has the ability to slide to ANY of the other Attitudes as a means to free himself from Dogma. We will now take any questions you may have, so we can respond to you, rather than use your time teaching what may already be available in print. QUESTIONS [MDFSage_Val] Can you describe a “spectrum of use” for an Idealist, or is this more an individual fragment thing/issue? [M_Entity] An Idealist lives within the spectrum of being “cursed” and “blessed” with the constant want for improvement. The Idealist has such a wider vision of most things that he can see patterns where others cannot. Within those patterns, he can also see how they can be improved, manipulated, or altered for the better. The struggle then comes from the Idealist being able to see the big picture, but not putting the effort into defining the STEPS it will take to get there. Therein lies the spectrum from Naivety to Coalescence. An Idealist can see that he has potential to run a marathon, but instead of taking the steps to prepare, he simply, naively runs in the marathon, until he collapses from the pain he could have avoided. [Suzanne] Michael, How would be best for an idealist & a spiritualist to relate to each other, one expresses while the other inspires? [M_Entity] The Spiritualist will always interpret relationships in terms of how inspiring they are, while the Idealist will interpret the relationships in terms of how much improvement is coming from them. [Suzanne] Rather interesting, as it can compliment. [M_Entity] If the Spiritualist feels her relationships are not inspiring, or that she is not inspiring, she will lose interest. The Idealist must feel as if the relationships are somehow improving each other, or he will feel they are not worth it. [Suzanne] Thank you, I understand better now [M_Entity] We are using pronouns randomly, for the sake of grammar. We are not intending anything to be specifically assigned to a gender. [Suzanne] Understood that too, thanks. [M_Entity] The Spiritualist could be said to be “cursed” and “blessed” with the philosophy that everything has potential. Within that spectrum, you will find the experiences ranging from blind faith or belief to valid verification of those potentials. We will point out one last point for your consideration before concluding tonight. When you are in the Negative Pole of your Attitude, you may find you are behaving more and more like the Attitude sharing your Axis, or attracting, or attracted to, those who share your Axis. This is your inherent move toward balance in perception and even if this is done without awareness, it manages, at least, to continue to give the option of choosing how you interpret your reality. So, an Idealist may tend to be very critical and skeptical as a means to balance his Idealism; the Spiritualist may find she is becoming less and less emotional and more passive as she seeks balance for her Beliefs. We shared as much as we could within your time allotted. We have much more to say about this topic, of course. We will conclude here. Good Night to all of you.

    Realists in Social Situations

    [Excerpt from a Private Session on 2/28/2015] [Q] How do Realists appear/act in socializing? [MEntity] The Realist tends to show up as being the one who expresses the least amount of surprise and reaction to anything anyone might say, do, or feel about events, relationships, experiences, etc. Even if the Realist is surprised, there would tend to be a lack of outrage or shock. They are of the least-reactionary of the Attitudes because, even if something was not anticipated, there is a realistic processing that happens that assumes room for non-anticipation. In the Positive Pole, they can be excellent sounding boards and sources of insight for help in returning to a balanced perspective. However, in the Negative Pole, they can be exasperating as they shrug off and distance themselves from reaction AS a reaction. When in the Negative Pole, the shrugging off is a defense, a reaction in itself, and tends to be a way for the Realist to keep things from “getting too real.” The difference between a Realist in the Positive Pole and a Realist in the Negative Pole can often be the difference between listening and offering insight vs quickly dismissing and even leaning toward a shaming “I could have told you that,” or “I told you so,” or “What did you expect.”
  9. [Michael Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with an energy report to which you may ask questions after. The energy report we are sharing is for September of 2007. As you enter into the last month of emphasis on the Attitude of Realist, the reality of its effect may begin to become more apparent. So far, the emphasis has been gentle for the most part, if not a bit surreal, ironically, but the edges of reality are now up for examination and this may feel a bit harsh in comparison. When we say "edges of reality," we simply refer to the sharper points, the outlines and lines that hold the shapes of your beliefs and perceptions. Inside these lines, there is space and softness in which to move, but when examining the lines, you are dealing with "edges," which are not as pleasant in many cases. Over September, many of you may find that the lines holding your perceptions together actually change as a way to alter the forms that make up many of your manifestations. In other words, the CONTENT may be something you wish to keep, but the FORMS may change. This is where the "harshness" can come in. Often there is an attachment to FORM, even when CONTENT is unfulfilling; or there is an addiction to the CONTENT, even when the FORM is inappropriate. In this case, some of you have found FORMS that may be up for change, and it would do you well to understand and trust that the core of what you seek WILL NOT DISAPPEAR, even if the form changes. The FORMS will not actually disappear for most of you, but the opening for more appropriate forms will be apparent and available, if you so choose to allow room for those in your reality. We realize all of this may seem vague, but as September unfolds, it may become clearer as to what we refer. In short, allowing space, trust, and compassion for the shifts and rearrangements around you over September will allow for the beauty that is intended by these shifts. KEY Thoughts over September might be: -LETTING GO OF FORM DOES NOT MEAN LOSS -BEING FULFILLED THROUGH appropriate FORM AND appropriate CONTENT IS OKAY TO HAVE AND WANT (it doesn't have to be one or the other) -LOVE, ANYWAY There are no particular dates of note over September in terms of energy shifts, though the last few days of September and the first few days of October could be said to be a shift into a peaceful comprehension of the year-to-date, with many aspects finally "making sense" on levels of the head and heart. We suggest for you to "make sense" of your changes in the weeks following September, because it may be difficult to comprehend during the weeks of September. We will take your questions now, if you have any. [Pathfinder] In a way the report answers my question, it will be interesting to see September unfold. So I'll hold off til next month on questions. [Ocean] In my case, Form and Content feel like they relate to the place that I live in Maine, and the possibility of a move west.... up to now, I have felt that letting go of my apartment would be "loss".... I know I have to trust and flow, but how do I know where the "best" place to be is? I feel i may have agreements to complete in both places. I feel very much in flux right now. [Michael Entity] First, we would clarify that TRUST is based on experience (as opposed to FAITH, which is based in lack of experience), so it is important to refer to your history of change wherein you have landed on your feet and made the "best" of anything you have chosen. Flow is important, but that does not mean a lack of questioning and concern. You appear to us to be "flowing" quite well, even as you navigate deliberately. In terms of the "best" place to be, this can be resolved by examining and comparing the Content that you seek, but also examine how it manifests. For instance, two places can have a strong emphasis on creativity and community, but one emphasizes this in schools of children, while another emphasizes this in communities of adults. Looking at your options in terms of FORM is one of your last considerations. You have found the CONTENTS, now thoroughly examine the FORMS. Ultimately, the trust you use to navigate your choices is fairly resonant between your Personality and Essence, so we see that your experience, wherever you choose to go, will most likely be "the best choice." [Ocean] thank you so much [JodiYeager] Thanks Michael. My question is one of form and content I think. It started out a month or so ago with a reality switch that I became aware of due to the changes in the bushes in my front yard, followed by the death of my ex and the retirement of my partner followed by the death of my mother. My question is, this switch in reality and the events of the past month or so, why did I choose this reality, is the other that I left harder, or perhaps easier as in less accelerated. I feel a bit of a top spinning out of control and having no anchor. [Michael Entity] Keep in mind that your choices CREATE your reality, not so much that you choose a reality as if it is intact before you "get there." Much of what you experience as "spinning out of control" is simply a matter of valid processing that is not confined by time or space or dimension, and "wherever" you might be in terms of realities, it will still be your choice as to how you feel about that processing. The intensity of so many changes in such a short period of time is not meaningful beyond the fact that you have created a reality that embraces the choices of others, too, which means they will die, retire, and love as they wish. That effort to love that broadly is Good Work. You have a lot to digest, accept, process, so it is not surprising that there is a bit of disorientation in terms of your daily life. The routines of life can seem trivial and draining in the shadow of profound processing, but that's why they are routines: to allow some amount of automation during the various levels of processing. There are other versions of this reality for your Essence where the Personality processes events differently, but to compare these realities is not helpful for you "here." If you preferred a different reality, you would be "there." [JodiYeager] It seems to me that both form and content are mutable and totally fluid, choice of what forms and content are "empty waiting to be filled for me" and that during this processing, form and content will be chosen. [Michael Entity] The basic CONTENT that is needed at this time in your current reality is simply COMFORT, HEALING, and INSIGHT. The FORM that it takes is up to you, but that Content is available. Looking around you and embracing the Content that is available in various Forms would do you well in getting your feet back on the ground, a sense of presence again, and an acceptance of this reality. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you.
  10. MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 080507 [Michael Entity] AUGUST ENERGY REPORT (as given in the upcoming August podcast) August brings with it an ethereal angle, which is not a contradiction to the Realism (attitude) in place. August appears to us to be a time of retrospection and a unique use of the past as a means to build the present in a better way. By "better" we mean with the intent to increase a sense of wider fulfillment beyond the self. August will lean toward being more group- and community-oriented, not only with the sense of how to better interact and build together, but also with a strange sense of surrealism. The retrospection is fairly understandable as part of the process of a year, but the surrealism may be a bit disorienting to some of you. The surrealism is due to a kind of "hyper-realism" as August unfolds, bringing an energy that allows for perception beyond the immediately tangible. Many of you may feel a sense of lightness, or great amounts of space, among your cells and atoms. This could be said to be an extension of the internal exploration started in July, but on vastly broader levels than the immediate life, memories, and experiences. August may easily be described by some of you as a sense of floating, untethered and dreamy, but rooted and serious in its focus on improving QUALITY among your exchanges. Questions that may arise are: DO I CONTRIBUTE TO LIFE IN A WAY THAT I WISH LIFE WOULD CONTRIBUTE FOR ME? DO I CONTRIBUTE TO MY RELATIONSHIPS IN A WAY THAT I WISH THEY WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO ME? DO I REALLY KNOW HOW TO LOVE, TELL THE TRUTH, AND USE MY ENERGY IN A WAY THAT IS ALIGNED WITH WHO I REALLY AM? Looking at these questions over August can bring you some profound insights. The theme could be described, then, as CONTEXT; living, thinking, acting, giving, receiving, communicating, and being in CONTEXT. The ability to realistically discern the appropriate context of your various moments is a form of important evolution for the soul and personality. In the end, August may bring some strength to your ability to keep your perspective clear as to the whole of a context, instead of the limited or distorted contexts that often plague a difficult life. A key phrase for August could be said to be: BE BIGGER. Be bigger than the moment, bigger than the disappointment, bigger than the expectation or the effort or the results, bigger than the day. Just... Be Bigger. Make psychological space in your cells and atoms for all potential and possibility as a means to allow more creativity and acceptance in the life. And then embrace it all. END OF AUGUST REPORT [cimmarron] Hello Michael. Can you discuss helpful ways to build the immune system and some holistic ways Troy can improve his health? [Michael Entity] There are many physical efforts, including activity, diet, and supplements, that can sustain or rebuild an immune system, all of which would be in different forms and intake for each individual, but the one, single aspect that is directly related to the state of an immune system is the state of SELF-ESTEEM. This is true of all fragments. The state of the immune system is proportional to the state of self-esteem. Exercise, diet, and supplements can slightly counter the impact of low self-esteem/low immunity, but without addressing the depth of confidence and acceptance of the self, the immune system can still fluctuate to a state that is just as dangerous to the health. The immune system fluctuates for all fragments, relative to the Personality's sense of self-esteem, and allows for processes to occur on a physical, tangible level that were refused to be addressed on more emotional and intellectual levels. From the most terminal of illnesses to the most trivial of "colds," this is true. It could be said that in the transition of your world from Young to Mature, the greatest plague among you is the perpetuation of low self-esteem, lack of confidence, and acceptance of self, which is the root of all vulnerability to illnesses and injuries. This is not to say that all illnesses and injuries are "your fault" because you simply have low self-esteem, but it is to say that there is an equation at work here that is consistent. In Troy's case, there is a great need to overhaul his concept of self in relation to physical plane and emotional resonances. He is a fine example of the most spirited, lively, and active of Personalities (like many of you) who have adapted to your wounds, instead of healing them, choosing, instead, to focus on crisis, struggle, helping others, expression, or any other means to direct the attention away from those wounds. As with any physical wound that remains open and unattended, even emotional wounds can eventually become "infected" to an extent that demands attention. As we have always stated that one of the final lessons of the Physical Plane is in the experience of loving the self, and embodying agape, it could be said that this is prompted by the many lifetimes of wounding that will eventually find healing from that state. In other words, a major part of why you seek to love and be loved is because you also wish to be complete and healed, which is what you will be in your final lifetimes. This very motivation is also part of why you reject loving and being loved, as this means looking at wounds to which you have ignored or to which you have adapted, fooling yourselves into thinking you are "doing just fine." Without diminishing the beauty of who you are and what you have accomplished in terms of your personal growth, acceptance, and loving, we can easily say that none of you are actually "doing just fine." You all need help. You all need each other. You all can find wholeness in NOT doing just fine, and giving up the imprinting of the Young Soul era of constant justification for your existence. You do not exist alone, nor do you exist as means to only prove your existence was worth it. We realize we have responded more broadly for all of you and not just for Troy, but while his position now is defined the way it is, all of you can do well to address your feelings of self, and your feelings of having a right to simply BE. Our response, while broad, is just as important for Troy as it is for all of you. In terms of the physical plane efforts for supporting the immune system, we would agree with most who are educated about the human body that an increase in fresh fruits, vegetables, and a reduction of processed foods, refined sugars, and stimulants, along with a great increase in intake of water, can do wonders for at least stabilizing the immune system. [Kathryn41] my question feels so frivolous after that wonderful information. VBG! It is actually more of a quick observation, than a question . . . however, would it be fair to say that the August energy report resonates to a "Spiritualist" attitude? [Michael Entity] The energy we described is based in the variations of energy related to REALIST, but this is not in conflict with any other Attitude. The only conflict between Overleaves is always based in the position of expression between the Positive and Negative Poles. Positive Poles are never in conflict, while Negative Poles are almost always in conflict. With that being said, it might be true that those who are Spiritualists will find the more etheric, expanded energy of August to be more familiar than, say, the Cynic. However, because this broader perspective is also rooted in Realism, this can be challenging to the Spiritualist, especially if coming from the Negative Pole. [Ann] I would like to ask more about the notion of "justification of existence". Can Michael say more about how we feel the need to do this? Does it have something to do with toting up our "accomplishments"/ How much of it is imprinting? (sorry for the vagueness. Flying by the seat of my pants here) How does one step away from this justification? [Michael Entity] Part of the dynamic of being a Young Soul is to justify the presence and existence of self. This influence is still quite strong in your world, as you may have observed, despite the actual Soul Age of a fragment. For the Older Soul, this pressure can be a constant weight that makes no sense, but is still addressed with a great amount of attention. We wish to make clear that it is NOT necessary for Young Souls to justify their existence, but that there is a consistent inclination to believe that this is necessary, thus it becomes a part of the dynamic of Young Soul environments. It is an exhausting and daunting way of living for the Older Soul to endure this pressure, falling into the obligation to be tangibly productive, sustaining social standards of success, showing observable ambition, and relegating Play Time to a space and time that is rarely visited. When we say that many feel an obligation to "justify their existence," we mean that it is not enough for most of you to simply breathe in life, to embrace love and kindness, to express joy. You must find REASONS for it, or only collect and express these things in relation to how rewarded you feel you deserve to be for what you have contributed. Because the standards for defining your worth are so superficial in most cases (financial stability, recognition, promotion, praise, working hard, rejecting playfulness, indulging in struggle), the Older Soul simply doesn't have the energy or motivation to "play along." This, then, contributes to the division felt between the self and the world. However, the Older Soul still "goes through the motions" of existing in this paradigm since it is so pervasive, thus betraying the self on a daily basis, diminishing the self-esteem. It is not that the Older Soul cannot play along in the current paradigms, but it is only when the Older Soul "buys into" the paradigm as a conclusive, limited space for living that the impact becomes harmful. And most of you do "buy into" it. What we mean by this is that most of you do not "look up" from your struggles for years before asking, "What the hell am I doing??!!" Many of you ask this question and then put your energy back into the same patterns, but some of you ask this and make the changes that allow room for your Being. To step away from the justification for your existence can be as simple as DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO (making the choices that lead you toward what you want, not what you think you must have), but more importantly than doing what you want to do is learning how to choose to HAVE FUN DOING WHAT YOU END UP DOING. It is not uncommon for any Soul Age to have to do what one doesn't want to do, but there is never a need to permanently perpetuate your distaste for that part of life. There are ways to always find joy or create joy in some way, either as a complement to the struggle, as a space after the struggle, or as pockets within the struggles. In the end, you exist with or without proving your worth in productivity. Consider this: If your life is an unlimited tap of water, it makes sense to relegate much of it to things you wish to grow around you, (and what you water is what you get), but you must DRINK of this life, too. Many of you continue to water many things around you, but never drink of your own source. All of you may choose to live in whatever way you feel inclined, but we share this with you so that you may also remember that it is your right, your choice, and your eventual evolution to realize that all of this is YOURS, with or without permission, approval, or productivity. It's YOUR life. And you are the source of it. Drink up. [rvolkman] While living in the physical plane, we are faced with choices that may raise fears and cause us to avoid doing things that we believe we truly want to do, or even to become "frozen in place". Knowing that we are completely safe as timeless souls, how can we integrate that knowledge and "feel" that safety at all times and in all things? [Michael Entity] It is quite difficult for most Personalities to reconcile the reality of the Essence's absolute safety vs the temporary, often painful, reality of being Physical as a Personality within a short period of time and space. Even the oldest of souls can be terrified of death, danger, and pain. Knowing "you" are absolutely safe in the scheme of things as an energy does not bring confidence and peace to the Personality who also knows that it will die, can be harmed, and wishes to avoid danger; however, part of the process of evolution for every soul is in the ACCEPTANCE OF BOTH REALITIES. It is not necessary to pretend that you are absolutely safe, because you are not absolutely safe, at least not in terms that the physical body can comprehend, and the physical body will do all it can to preserve itself, with or without your higher perceptions. It is okay to acknowledge the reality of your timelessness and absolute safety in terms of the soul and energy, but it is also part of your evolution to acknowledge that the "you" that "you" are in this life is the only time "you" will be that "you." It makes sense to feel a need to preserve this for as long as possible, as the Body and Personality do so love to be alive. However, what one can do is learn to assess life's choices more accurately than one was taught to do. By this we mean that MOST choices ARE NOT THREATENING to you or your body. Most fragments turn many potential choices into situations of magnitude that are disproportionate to the actual impact of the various potentials. It is a natural form of navigation to anticipate danger and harm within the range of potentials when making choices, but many of you experience these considerations as REALITY and then respond accordingly. Over time, many of you have programmed your navigational skills to simply highlight all danger and then to avoid those potentials. What one must learn to do, eventually, is to assess the potential for joy, for delight, for thrills, for love, and to start finding that most choices are worth the risk, especially when one can honestly see that there is very little potential for actual, physical harm. What one will do eventually then is to make choices that have assessed all of the potential possibilities of joy and happiness, rather than only navigating as a means to avoid danger. When one feels "frozen" in the attempt to move forward, especially in a direction that might seem to have potential for joy, one must only acknowledge gently the importance of the fear that only wishes to protect you, and then teach yourself something new for you to know: that you will survive most of your choices, even if they don't pan out the way you imagine. It is not a lie, or a fantastical myth, for us to state that all forms of sentience are designed by default to seek pleasure, happiness, and laughter, NOT to avoid danger. Only the body is designed to avoid danger. This is why we have said that to be embodied is a struggle between the sacred and profane, which must eventually find resolution. That resolution is often found in the sweet comfort of living as your Essence, and finding it your responsibility to understand the moments of fear, helping the self to navigate from a place that teaches the body and Personality that MOST of life is fun and pleasant, if not hilarious and playfully absurd, but not the constant danger that might always be anticipated. We have more to say about this, but we believe this is a good start for pondering the potentials for pleasure over danger in your choices. We will conclude here for now. Good day to each of you.
