March 04, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Energy Report and Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin tonight with a brief look at how the energy appears to be moving in terms of consciousness and your shared outer world. Approximately the first three months of a given year are generally about the implementation of that year's energy as described in terms of ROLE, GOAL, and CENTER. The Role energy and Center energy will be a context for the entire year, with each additional level of energy (in terms of Goal, Mode, Attitude, Chief Feature) becoming more directly implemented, or emphasized, during progressive portions of the year. These first few months have emphasized the Goal of Re-Evaluation. We have seen a great deal of regressive focus in your world as the varying Soul Age perceptions “take stock” in what is important to each. When a planet or large population makes a major shift in Soul Age, that period of time becomes wrought with the proclamations of each Soul Age. The most secure and confident Soul Ages are currently the Baby and Young, with very strong “voices” being impressed and expressed in and through the media. These Soul Ages are inherently “against” the encompassing of anything labeled as “other”. One of the final steps in progression toward the next Soul Age (from Baby to Young, and from Young to Mature) is through surrender to the reality of “other”. We state this because there are many Baby and Young Souls, near the end of their own Soul Age, who exhibit what appear to be quite progressive perceptions. This progressive level of acceptance is because final or late-level Baby and Young Souls are focused on the understanding and acceptance of anything that has ever been labeled “other” during the first 5 or 6 Levels of that Soul Age. While many Baby and Young Souls are clamoring for resistance to acceptance of the planetary shift, you may find pockets of Final- and Late-Level Baby and Young Souls standing in defense of the progress toward maturity on your planet. The stances of these Baby and Young Souls is important as there are very few “loud” Mature Souls at this time taking strong stances for anything in particular, though they will gladly contribute themselves as support. The majority of the population on the planet is Mature Soul, but these are very early-level Mature Souls with deeply sensitive, sometimes fragile, perceptions. Many of these Mature Souls are easily overwhelmed by the division and chaos that seems to be conveyed through the media, especially in terms of politics and equal rights. The irony of the source of strength behind your continued shift into a Mature Soul world is in the works and stances of these Late-level Young and Baby Souls. Many final- or late-level Baby and Young Souls have surrendered to the ‘new Mature Soul world’ of compassion, acceptance, consideration, and Rights. Their Essences are keenly aware that the choices made from their current lifetime will impact the reality of their future lifetimes and Soul Ages. We explain all of this for a reason: Over the course of this year you may find yourself in very awkward perceptual positions that you have never experienced, or have not experienced in quite some time. More often than usual, you may find yourself in quite shocking and disorienting contexts where the majority opinion around you is absolutely counter to your own perceptions. We see this as being particularly strong over the next few months, and for many of our students, this appears to be a serious surprise over the next month of March. We explain all of this to you as a means to help you understand and adapt to the “unrest” that may appear to be around you and against you. Issues of “morality and religion” are the tools of the Young and Baby, while “Rights” are the tools of the Mature Soul. The Young Souls are not particularly ruled by these issues of morality and religion, but they do know that to keep these values implemented keeps people in a more controlled position, thus allowing for better opportunities for the Young Souls. Over the year we see approximately 5 fragments in the final levels of the Young or Baby Soul Ages becoming strong, pivotal, public forces toward helping support changes in favor of the Mature Soul world. One fragment in particular appears to be known as Donald Trump. You may be surprised as to who “comes out” in support of controversial Rights. On a more personal level you may experience this energy as creating restlessness in you, an agitation, a compulsion to withdraw, or you may find that it encourages you to take a look at your own convictions, principles, and perceptions, moving you into a clearer, more conscious definition of where you stand in the world. In other words: there appears to be a pressure to take part IN the world more than usual, regardless of how you react/respond to that. This pressure may seem ironic in a year of Re-evaluation, but do not forget that Re-evaluation is on the same Axis as the Goal of Growth, sharing an Inspirational Axis. Re-evaluation does not inherently mean resigning from the world, even if you move into the negative pole of Withdrawal; Re-evaluation is about Simplifying. All issues in your own life or in your shared world are being simplified down to only a very few basic issues; the KEY issues. Regardless as to whether these issues are in your personal life or in your shared world, these issues will more than likely relate to RIGHTS. The public, shared world will be obvious as Gay Rights, Animal Rights, and general Human Rights continue to dominate the issues, but in your personal life, you may also be simplifying your own sense of Rights, i.e. your Right to be Loved, or to Love, to Have, to Know, etc. Some of you may feel a strong conviction that you have put off or dismissed some part of your life that you finally admit you have a RIGHT TO EXPERIENCE. The energy is now here all around you and among your support groups of entity and cadre mates, to finally allow/create some of those experiences. We can safely say then that a key phrase over the next month might be: I CAN. We would suggest making an effort to consciously simplify your options and actions and thoughts and feelings about any area of Rights you have felt strongly about changing. To do this, we can suggest 3 things for helping you move into a positive state of Re-evaluation: Decording: imagine releasing all energetic bonds extending to and from your body. You can do so by imagining “washing” these cords from your body, allowing them to drop or “pulled off” gently. Remember to pay close attention to any cords stemming from your back. Although energetic bonding is not as literal as your visualization needs to be, the symbolic visuals are valid. Cords extending from the “front” of your body are those in which you feel energized, lifted, and are there by permission. Cords extending from the “back” of your body are those from which you feel drained, depressed, and are not there by conscious permission. After decording your body in your imagination, imagine draping your body in a gold mesh of light, feeling a deeply peaceful release of all demands against your energy. This imaginary gold mesh of light is simply a way of consciously directing your energy to remain “clean”, deflecting the unwanted cords while encouraging the return of those deemed inspiring. Walking: simply taking a long walk in the open air with no intentions but to experience the walk can greatly clarify your sense of self as Soul and Personality, allowing you to be a better provider for you and your life. Singing or lip-synching: this may seem “silly”, but the act of unbridled expression can bring with it a great amount of clarity. Over the next month, if any or all three of these things were to be implemented once or twice, you may find you have a stronger sense of your next steps within this year. Some of you may already meditate, sing, and walk regularly, so if you feel these are too familiar, we simply suggest that you heighten your awareness in your next experience of these routines. Your benefit will not be compromised. We will stop here for questions about the ENERGY REPORT. We are not opening the floor to general questions, yet. QUESTIONS ABOUT REPORT [kittlekats41] you mentioned that the majority of the population is at the early mature level in the world – what is it in the United States at this time – also early mature? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the United States’ average Soul Age is around 3rd Level Mature, as is your planet and universe. This average does not mean you will feel it or see it as much as you will see and feel the remaining impact from the previous Soul Age average, of course. [Rivrbird] Michael, would you give an example of an area where majority opinion will seem exactly counter to our own perceptions in such a way that we would be shocked or disoriented? [Michael_Entity] We know of at least two fragments in this “room” who are surrounded by charismatic, social, affectionate, and warm Personalities. Upon prompting, these very same warm fragments express strong opinions and hostile stances against the Rights of anyone beyond Christianity or Heterosexuality. That captures the most common means of these surprising differences to be displayed. Many Old and Mature Souls will find that the very people with whom they have bonded or gained warm acquaintances have quite startlingly opposing viewpoints that are now being encouraged by media and political hype. [Anla899] What is the best way to respond to these opposing viewpoints when demonstrated by these acquaintances? [Michael_Entity] Of course, the “best way” is the way you feel compelled, as this would honor your ability to choose. There is no real “best way”, though there are methods that are more conducive to certain results than others. Our suggestions would rely on your sense of what you would wish to accomplish with your response. If your intent is for as peaceful a response as possible, we have seen that a lack of engagement in a debate is the most efficient route. In most instances, we have not seen much progress in a debate between a zealous Baby Soul and an emotional Mature or logical Old Soul. This is not said to discourage those debates, as your engagement in such activities or not, is your choice. If your intent is to maintain your sense of integrity and right to expression in the midst of these intimidating stances, we would suggest simply stating that you do not agree and proceed with any discussion within your level of ability and comfort, excusing yourself calmly when you feel you may lose your emotional or logical “footing”. [Rivrbird] Baby and young souls use religion, mature souls use “rights”, do old souls have a particular “tool” that we use? [Michael_Entity] Most Old Souls will default to the tools of Soul Age in which they most relate, and in most cases this would be the Mature Soul. Therefore, you may find a great many Old Souls coming out of their comfort zones of acceptance and surrender, back into the actions that encourage Rights. Behind the use of that, we would say that the tool of the Old Soul then would be Wisdom or Logic. [Heidi Hessler] Could Michael expand a bit on how the Great Pyramid operated as a practical means for transportation? …Sorry this question is off the subject. [Michael_Entity] We have a great deal to say about the “Great Pyramid” and various other structures of similar mystery, but we will limit our response to your question. We would not say that this structure was practical by any means, and we would not accurately describe it as a form of transportation. We would more accurately state that it was used for Teleportation. This feat was accomplished by harnessing the energy of Earthquakes. Its abilities extend beyond Teleportation within Space, but within Time, as well. It will be used “again”. We will open the floor for one or two more questions, if there are any, and then conclude the evening with you. [kittlekats41] I was hoping you might be able to give those of us who are fine-tuning our own channeling abilities some useful advice about perfecting our ‘focus’, or at least improving . . .:-) [Michael_Entity] Each of you has Overleaves that are more conducive to one of the three stages of channeling: Reception, Interpretation, and Transmission. Depending on the design of your Personality, you may be more inclined in strength in one of these areas. “Reception” is the actual ability to connect with, or sense, the energy in which you wish to experience. “Interpretation” is the actual ability to take patterns of Reception and make sense of those patterns within a language you understand, whether emotional, intellectual, or bodily. “Transmission” is the actual ability to convey patterns through you to another individual or group in meaningful ways. To excel in just one of these areas is not a limitation. For instance, Transmission might seem useless if you do not “know how” to Receive or Interpret, but this is not necessarily the case as many Healers, particularly in the context of Reiki, can attest. Their intent is to Transmit, not necessarily understand or “get” what is happening. Without an in-depth class to explain the dynamics of our comments, we can suggest that you sense the area in which you feel you are strongest and weakest (less-inclined). In the area in which you are strongest, simply practice as usual. In the area in which you are less-inclined, we can suggest a few simple tools to help gently strengthen these areas: Reception: Dutifully, willingly, and daily, keep a Dream Journal. Even if you do not remember your dream, write that you do not remember your dream. Experiment with this journaling by writing questions to your Essence, and assume your dreams will respond. Interpretation: study an intuitive tool such as the Tarot. Learn how to see and interpret patterns in the layouts. Create symbolic meanings of certain events and patterns around you and observe “signs” around you using synchronicity. Transmission: Sit still and silent without falling asleep. Practice suddenly relaxing your body at various points in the day. Incorporate psychic hygiene into your daily or weekly routines, allowing your showers/baths to also “brighten” your aura and release any old energy patterns you may sense. These are quick, simple suggestions, but they will do for your continued explorations. We will conclude here. Good night to all of you.
Janet posted a topic in 2000 Michael SpeaksJanuary 6, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Conscious Connection to Essence Note: This series continues in Michael Speaks -- Conscious Connection to Essence (2 of 3). [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. Welcome to your New Year. We realize and understand the significance of this marking, as it is an ingredient of human sentience to measure time with great marks. It also marks the close of one of the more unusual “windows” for a Nexus (parallel shift), which has not gone unnoticed by many of you. As we move into this topic, “creating conscious connection to Essence”, we feel it best to have it an on-going discovery on your part, a journey of remembering, or a journey of re-connection. You will always “embody” or express Essence, even if only minutely. It is never a matter of “finding” Essence or seeking Essence, it is always about becoming CONSCIOUS of Essence. When you, as Personality, are lacking consciousness in direction or action, feelings, thoughts, etc., you are limiting Essence’s expression, but you can never truly limit Essence. You merely limit your personal intimacy with Essence. Essence will freely allow a Personality to run “amok” or fall into fear and pain, though these experiences are ALWAYS as a result of a Personality’s decisions. Essence inherently steers a life away from these, but Personality is invaluable to Essence and Essence can never know what “burns” unless at least ONE version of a Personality touches the “fire” so to speak. For those experiences, Essence is deeply grateful, even if it, itself, is inclined more toward what the nature of a particular universe is. In this case, your universe is EXPANDING, therefore Essence seeks expansion as well. Expansion is recognized in terms of pleasure, fulfillment, happiness, joy, and love… those things that give Personality pleasure are in synchronicity and alignment with Essence. This is so, regardless of temporary social mores, standards and judgments of the time. As we said, the journey toward enhancing your conscious connection to Essence will be paved with your own realizations, questions, and sharing. [debo] Regarding conscious connection to essence–If one is talking to essence and continuing a dialogue going during a day–is this as valid as meditating and connecting to one’s higher self? It seems too easy in a way. We will begin with the question posed by the fragment known as “debo” here. One moment. In answer to debo and her question: You have addressed a very subtle factor in many Personalities seeking conscious contact with Essence. Having and maintaining contact with Essence is always thought of in terms of something “other than” self; something more extravagant, more magickal, more ‘something’ than the Personality, itself. Therefore, it is many times assumed that contact with Essence must be marked by some kind of initiation, ritual, or euphoric sense of knowing, some complicated/complex passage. This is simply not true, though it certainly can be your decision if you require such meaning for your progress. What helps put things into perspective is that Essence not only CREATED you, as you know it, but also NEEDS you. You are its eyes, its heart, its hands, its feet, its face, and its fantastic world of physical sensation. It is blind without you. It is blind in many ways while dealing with the Physical Plane. As you are, in as many ways, without it. This means Essence listens to you with great depth of compassion, commitment, and interest. While Essence can see your larger contexts, your Agreements, your Karma, and many other factors that are not necessary for you, as Personality, to know, it innocently has no idea how important a good night’s sleep is, how important it is to you to be held, or how a bowl of cherries might make your day. You, as Personality, “feed” this information to Essence as you experience it. While some of you “speak” to Essence and continually co-create the life, many of you use your Instinctive Centered years or Instinctive Reviews (individually) for “uploading” or updating your Essence. Many of you may feel you “speak” to Essence to no avail, but we suggest that if you are feeling along these lines, you are not speaking to Essence, you are simply in need of more tangible and physical support. It is valid and important that you seek this out. Essence cannot magickally “rescue” you; it is as interested in your panic and plight. You are all capable of making changes in your life that you seek, and you are all capable of reaching out for others. When it appears Essence isn’t “listening”, try reaching out for or allowing a “spirit in the flesh” into your life. So, in answer to your question or comment, debo, it is usually quite a wonderful experience for a Personality to address its Essence on a daily basis, even if simply in words and thought. It teaches Essence about the more subtle aspects of the life. Otherwise, this is only extracted upon life review, or during Instinctive reviews. What we will be working toward in this journey, is a sense of Essence BEING you, not just being spoken to by you. We will speak more on this later as the class consciousness builds. [Barry] I’m wrestling with the phrase “creating a conscious connection to Essence”. Would you explain what you mean by “conscious”? Do you mean a waking knowledge of the essence that is us? How do we know when we have achieved this? Are there different methods of doing this best suited for each of us? [Michael_Entity] What we mean by ‘conscious’ here is basically a code word for “acceptance”. In many of your cases, Essence is distanced to a great degree, even if honored by you. Another way of describing this class topic may be “choosing to accept your Essence” and all that that implies. [Barry] You make it sound like that implies a lot…. [Michael_Entity] As you progress through this class, you have the opportunity to not only experience your Essence INTIMATELY, but to allow Essence to experience YOUR world intimately. The possibilities to blur your lines of differentiation are high. For each Role, there will be different paths, yes, and when you are maintaining a sense of Essence daily, it will be rare to find your world threatening, unsafe, unloving, or disappointing. This, then, is part of the symptoms that will allow you to “know” of your conscious connection. [Barry] We will be in a “state” of LOVE? [Michael_Entity] We cannot answer that yet as we would need to determine whether we are talking about the same thing. Most of you do not comprehend what Love is as a universal truth but usually refer to the sensations or peripheral counterparts stirred by connections and relief. We might suggest that the sensations are the first signs that you are near Love, but most have not grasped the reality and implications of what Love truly is. We will be outlining the Roles and their potential “paths” to consciousness as we build here tonight. We wanted to hear your questions tonight to help us better customize our interactions with you in regards to this topic. [MBV] I seem to have a hard time seeing through the haze of my Overleaves. Could Michael give me some examples of the artisan role in essence that would help me identify those qualities which is my essence speaking to me? Would these qualities be true for all artisans? [Michael_Entity] You have long survived as Personality “alone” and it is Good Work that you acknowledge your strengths as such. It is a confusion that Essence must be involved in all undertakings while you are Physical or it implies you are “lost”, but this is not true. The entire basis of parallel realities is to allow the Personality its varying versions and ideas about what the life “should”/”could”/”might” be like. Essence has it’s “original plan”, but it relishes in the creativity that a Personality might run with. In your case, Mary, you have “branched” and “branched”, so to speak, far from the “trunk” of your original plans, drawing in realms of extreme experiences that were not necessarily Essence’s “idea”, but are enriching your collective self entirely. You have now found yourself being drawn back into Essence after exhausting a creative path as desired by Personality. This is the motivation behind your questions and feelings. In this process, your first glances in recognizing Essence will appear to be “in a haze” as you have always as Personality been “your own strength”. You now seek Essence as a resource in addition to “you” as you know you. You will have to “get to know” Essence again. In your case, your “unruly”, giddy, untamed flows of energy are your Essence flowing and speaking. In most cases when you’ve “heard this voice” you funnel this energy “reasonably” or hold it off until “appropriate”, as this has become one of your strengths: to “behave”. As you bring more of your Essence in and your world starts to align to it, you will find the balance that will allow safety and peace, with no threat to your security built. For now and over the next three months or so it might be expected that you feel very disoriented, moody, extreme in emotion, as you relinquish some of your Personality’s precious and justified hold. We will address more of this privately and personally. We will also note here that there are, yes, certain qualities that each Role can recognize as being in Essence, but they are only references. It is always an individual discovery. In your case, you, as Personality, are discovering that you and Essence can “play” without getting into “trouble”. [debo] If we are maintaining a sense of Essence and are seeking joy and pleasure but instead feel disappointment, is this due to unrealistic expectation? How do we know what is a valid path for Essence to experience (our chosen source of) joy, and what is not valid? [Michael_Entity] If what you seek is being called “joy” and “pleasure” but ending in disappointment, then you are not perceiving the truth of that situation. Joy ends in Joy. Pleasure ends in Pleasure. There is no exception. If what you seek is based on the IDEA of joy or pleasure, you may want to reassess if the results are proving otherwise. Another valid consideration is that the situation may simply be a larger context than that which gives you joy and therefore must be examined in parts. For instance, to say you love to eat does not mean you enjoy the full, overblown sense after, or the gas, or the heartburn, etc. It may simply be a matter of altering the experience so the emphasis is on the joyful part, EATING, but with more conscious moderation so as to eliminate that which creates a less joyful or even disappointing end. You may enjoy eating, but not eating certain foods, or so much at a time. It usually only takes a moment, but certain commitment, to dissect or clarify exactly what it is that is pleasurable in the seeking, and how to adapt or alter those parts less appealing. “Unrealistic Expectation” does lead to disappointment, but this can be used to your advantage. If EXPECTATION is instead seen as enthusiasm, and DISAPPOINTMENT is seen as knowledge, then much is gained. This is an entire topic unto itself. As for the “validity” of a path for Essence: this is determined through your personal sense of happiness. In fact, that is the main question for the next three months from Essence as the Instinctive is moved through: “does this contribute to my happiness?” Happiness, at least in this universe, is a navigational tool for Personality. If you are unhappy, and you know it, this is good. This means you are honest with yourself. Being honest with you allows empowerment. Empowerment is implemented through planning. Planning is carried out through creativity and enthusiasm. Creativity and enthusiasm is sustained by seeking pleasure/happiness. Pleasure and happiness are guaranteed when being “present” in your life. Being “present” in your life means you are being honest. Though this is a crudely displayed path in words, with some examination you will see its merit. Each of these facets (6) revolve around a central concept that might be considered “living”, completing a septant for change. More on this later. [nemo999] I feel cut off from my essence; is it that I want to control it or I am not accepting/unhappy? [Michael_Entity] You are never truly cut off from Essence, but Essence can be cut off BY you as Personality, at least in terms of conscious connection. In your longing for Essence, it is doubtful you are cut off in any case; Essence responds immediately to any thought in its “direction”. In other words, it may not be Essence you seek or miss, but the “essence” of something else. Nemo, you have experienced losses that still require grieving. Grieving is acceptance of some “hard” truths for the Personality. It would not be amiss at this point in your life to “go back” to what you have lost, indulge in the grief as a process, allowing freedom for that energy, thus making space for something more. For now, it appears you are still hoping or holding out for a revision of a time since passed. You are not alone or cut off from Essence, Nemo, quite the opposite. You are a tremendously sensitive body, it appears, and your Personality and Essence will change your scenario when you are done with the feelings being explored. We remind you all that this forum is difficult to “skim” over your very important and personal lives, so we suggest taking our responses as PART of a larger response, not a complete response. We just do not, through this format and channel, have the space or time available to be effective for all of you on that level. To summarize, Nemo, determine what tangible thing it is in your life you miss. Your answers can be revealed in that. You are looking “UP” for answers when you might want to look “back”. [rion] When meditating I have at times felt a very loving presence which I interpreted to be Essence. However, people channel and are in contact with “other”. What is essence and what is “other”? How does one tell? [Michael_Entity] In all cases of channeling, meditating, etc., it is ALWAYS your Essence which makes first contact. In the same way that you cannot interact with “other” without a Personality while Physically extant, so too is it impossible to contact nonphysical “others” without Essence as the medium. In reaching out during meditation or channeling without specificity, you can rest assured it is Essence in some way. If you seek contact with nonphysical “others” specifically, Essence will act as medium. So our answer is, in creating specificity this allows you as Essence and Personality to differentiate the subtleties between self and other. This can be done only with practice, as many beginning attempts for contact with “other” are almost entirely based on filtering of many sorts. To understand this, observe your experiences when meeting a new stranger, physically, between Personalities. This will lend you insights into how you will differentiate subtleties nonphysically. For some, interaction with another person to determine “who” that person is may last a few minutes, for others a few years or more. In your case, you are adept at “reading” a person and this also spills into your explorations in the non-physical. We can also suggest you attach symbolism to what you know you want to contact. For instance, you can ask that Essence present itself as a certain colour, feeling or sound. This then would help you determine differences when touching other sources. [Sandra51] I understand that the Chakra system and Essence has a connection. Would you describe this in relation to the topic tonight? In a nutshell, ha ha. [Michael_Entity] We will touch on it briefly, but will get a more succinct transcript out for Otterly and your discussion list later. As you explore your conscious connection to Essence, you will also be heightening your sense of self as a Personality. As you explore your sense of self as a person, you will make more room for Essence in your life. It is a two way street, so to speak. In exploring yourself on either level, it is important to examine your “rights” as a physical being and your expression of those “rights” and/or the damage or interference to those “rights”. For each chakra, or Center, there is a basic “right” that the Personality must have tended to fully embody the Essence. We say “embody” as a convenience, as it is actually the opposite. YOU as Personality are embodied in Essence. You most basic “right”, relating to the Instinctive, is your right to exist, or be alive at all. The right to be real. This can also be said to be your right to “have”. Your second Center/Chakra must be examined in terms of your right to feel, experience intimacy, and create. Your third chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to take action, or to make change. Another way to put it is your right to be free. Your fourth chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to be loved, and to love. Your throat chakra, or 5th Center, is your right to the truth, whether speaking it, or hearing it. Your 6th chakra/Center can be examined in terms of your right to perceive, to have vision. This can also be said to be your right to dream, on all levels. And finally, your 7th Chakra/Center is your examination of your right to spirituality, or your right to ” inner knowledge”. Though we skimmed these, the slightest examination of these areas of your life can be revealing in what Centers/Chakras are not being cared for or possibly denied, thus blocking Essence. They may have also been damaged or imprinted with allowances from other fragments in the life. The three “lower centers” (3rd, 4th, and 5th) are all the most obvious and easily examined. They are the keys to balancing Personality. In fact, these centers can potentially be examined with a degree of accuracy, at least as a starting point, in your translating your personal Centering in your Overleaves. When looking at your Centering it might be said that your primary centering is the right you SUSTAIN, while the PART of the centering is the right you “FIGHT FOR”. We remind you that Emotional Centering is your right to feel, Intellectual Centering is your right to speak or hear truth, and Moving is your right to act out or make change. The Instinctive Center is always under examination and use so it is almost always in some form of distortion without conscious guidance. This is balanced through creating a daily balance among your “lower centers”. The “higher centers” (2nd, 6th, and 7th) are keys to your understanding your connection to Essence. With examination, if any of these centers appear to be limited or distorted through fear or imprinting, it will be your task to incorporate experiences which fulfill that level of your rights, if you choose. We will conclude here then. Goodnight.
April 1, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS (Online) [Michael_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. We will begin with the requested energy report. As has been explained in previous reports, this period of time will now begin to emphasize the energy described in terms of the “mode” for the year. In this case, it would be PASSION/RESERVE. Over the next three months or so we can see quite a chaotic pattern forming among humans, especially on an emotional level. Many of you who are older souls have already begun to sense this. The emotional climate of the planet will be more chaotic than usual because of the difficulty in reconciling Passion with the Goal of Re-evaluation; combining those energies with the energy of the Sage you will either find profound fun and wisdom in the year ahead, or high drama and high intensity. April through June may bring disorientation and feelings of being “out of synch”, with bouts of overreaction and/or repression. Most of our students will be finding this time as one that will uncover passions that have been repressed. In general, this is a year of revisiting agenda and intentions that have easily been overlooked in years passed. This will mean that an emphasis may come on all the “little things” that have not been experienced or passed over because of more pressing or “important” agenda. Over the next few weeks then, some of you may also uncover the resentment behind your “little things” you are finally doing for yourself. This may easily “throw you off” because it will be old energy being surfaced, much of it having been stored in you from quite early in this life. This may cause a period of non-specific depression or oddly-timed emotional bouts of release. It will be easy for you to assume our report to be a negative report, but this is not the case at all. Beyond the surface of these resentments, repression, and realizations will be the freeing of parts of you that have lacked permission to participate in this life for a long time. And we remind you that these “parts of you” are NOT obviously profound areas. For instance, it may “seem silly” that you finally take time to get a manicure and would really like to have one on a regular basis. It is not the act of having the manicure that is the issue. For each of you this act would mean something different. For some it might be a simple event that makes your body feel included in your appreciation of beauty. For some it may be about the freedom to spend those few extra dollars without judgment. For others it may be the socializing aspect that may come with the experience. The bottom line will be in whether this “little thing” encourages your feeling happy, nurtured, free, at peace, etc. We suggest reminding yourselves occasionally over the next several weeks that it is “naturally” an awkward time energetically. You may find you are clumsier, more forgetful, with electronics, databases, and appliances malfunctioning sporadically and your inner senses feeling less focused. We further suggest you remind yourselves of these three questions: Will/Does it help me be FREE? Will/Does it help me be HAPPY? Will/Does it help me be INSPIRED? If you remember to ask these specific questions of yourself when you might normally dismiss a “little thing” in your life, then you may find your energy remaining more balanced. Having a focus and a permission to experience these “little things” will return you to a greater sense synchronicity during this time of re-evaluation. You cannot keep all unpleasant life experiences from happening, and we realize there will always be larger issues, but you can manage to weave your energy throughout your life on a level that will adapt to fluctuations and growth. We will take your questions now. Q&A on E-REPORT [mdfsage] What can we do for folks who are caught up in depression, physical pain, pulling back during this period? [Michael_Entity] Depression is inwardly-directed anger. It is a lack of self-permission to feel or express that anger, and the anger is usually rooted in a lack of permission to experience a basic Right. During the next month or so, it may be a healthy opportunity to gently encourage steps toward some basic Rights one might have deemed “wrong” to pursue or allow. In terms of physical pain, this would require a more specific look at the individual. For people who may be linking depression, physical pain, and “pulling back”, all together during this time, it can be most helpful to ask the individual what he/she wants/needs. This may not be an easy question to answer. It may be of help for you to keep in mind the 7 Basic Rights of any Sentient Being. If you can help bring the experience of that Right to a person who has resisted it, then healing can be profound and quick. Troy will include the details in your transcript. EXCERPT about “RIGHTS”: As you explore your conscious connection to Essence, you will also be heightening your sense of self as a Personality. As you explore your sense of self as a person, you will make more room for Essence in your life. It is a two way street, so to speak. In exploring yourself on either level, it is important to examine your “rights” as a physical being and your expression of those “rights” and/or the damage or interference to those “rights”. For each chakra, or Center, there is a basic “right” that the Personality must have tended to fully embody the Essence. We say “embody” as a convenience, as it is actually the opposite. YOU as Personality are embodied in Essence. You most basic “right”, relating to the Instinctive Center, is your right to exist, or be alive at all. The Right to be Real. This can also be said to be your right to “have”. Your second Center/chakra must be examined in terms of your Right to Feel, experience intimacy, and create. Your third chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to take action, or to make change. Another way to put it is your right to be free. Your fourth chakra/Center is examined in terms of your right to be loved, and to love. Your throat chakra, or 5th Center, is your right to the truth, whether speaking it, or hearing it. Your 6th chakra/Center can be examined in terms of your right to perceive, to have vision. This can also be said to be your right to dream, on all levels. And finally, your 7th chakra/Center is your examination of your right to spirituality, or your right to “inner knowledge”. Though we skimmed these, the slightest examination of these areas of your life can be revealing in what Centers/Chakras are not being cared for or possibly denied, thus blocking Essence. They may have also been damaged or imprinted with allowances from other fragments in the life. The three “lower centers” (3rd, 4th, and 5th) are all the most obvious and easily examined on a daily basis. They are the keys to balancing Personality. In fact, these centers can potentially be examined with a degree of accuracy, at least as a starting point, in your translating your personal Centering in your Overleaves. When looking at your Centering it might be said that your primary centering is the Right you SUSTAIN, while the PART of the centering is the Right you “FIGHT FOR”. We remind you that Emotional Centering is your right to feel, Intellectual Centering is your right to speak or hear truth, and Moving is your right to act out or make change. The Instinctive Center is always under examination and use so it is almost always in some form of distortion when without conscious guidance. This is balanced through creating a daily balance among your “lower centers”. The “higher centers” (2nd, 6th, and 7th) are keys to your understanding your connection to Essence. With examination, if any of these centers appear to be limited or distorted through fear or imprinting, it will be your task to incorporate experiences which fulfill that level of your rights, if you choose. END EXCERPT [SilverOne126] Does the feeling of unease (and general frustration) I’ve been sensing in others at work have to do with the build up to this shifting and complex energy period? How long may it continue? [Michael_Entity] It does appear to be linked. There is a general sense of things being extreme, with some hours feeling free and happy, followed by a sense of near-comatose sedation, followed by an unfounded want to cry. We only used those extremes as examples, but there may be many extremes experienced. This passionate, untamed energy is escalating and appears to be “stirring” more into April and part of May. Mid-may will most likely be a shift into more clarity, communication, and stability in the emotions. Old and Late Mature Souls will most likely begin feeling a bit more balanced toward the end of April. We remind you that all of this is uneasy energy is an opportunity to do “good work” in terms of uncovering outdated modes, beliefs, behavior patterns, dismissals, etc. Although appearing chaotic, this energy is prevalent because it is apparently necessary for human growth right now. Frustration will experienced as a by-product of denial. Those who are not making the moments to do those “silly things” may be more likely to have bouts of frustration and disorientation throughout their days. This is not a period of time to be overly concerned with controlling time or space. Those with Impatience and Martyrdom, if severely ruled by these Chief Features, may have the most difficult challenges in remaining calm. In fact, over the next three months one may find those with Impatience and Martyrdom being louder, more demanding, and more exasperated (and exasperating) than ever. For those with Impatience and Martyrdom, we would merely suggest that the next few months are a time where one can “safely” “kick up her heels” and occasionally state, “What the hell…” Let people Be, and let yourself Be. [upstate] like painting a lizard on your wall! [Michael_Entity] And to Lori, yes. If seeing that totem will benefit your space, internally or externally, then it may be time to say, “what the hell…” [Anla899] How do we deal with the fear of doing the “silly things’ like spending too much money? [Michael_Entity] Of course, we do not suggest you jeopardize your physical existence, but if you are remotely capable of gifting yourself or another through the means of money, then the experience will “pay for itself”. Your question does bring to light a very important factor in doing these “little things”: This is your time to experience those things, but some of you may easily use these events as a way to further convince yourself to remain constrained. In other words, you may decide to spend “too much money” and then feel the negative impact, “proving” to yourself that you are not free. We are not saying NOT to “spend too much money”, nor are we saying to be too practical, but we are suggesting that you wholeheartedly do whatever you decide and then be at peace with that decision. The point will be that you ENJOY IT. As a matter of maintaining perspective, most of your little things that you have avoided are not elaborate, complicated, or expensive. They are “little things”. If you are worried about spending too much money of a “little thing”, you may be missing the point. We certainly do not intend to encourage all of you to succumb to periods of chaos within the chaos, but we do state that there is a lack of order right now that can allow for many “little things” to be “fit in” to your days. As a side note: We have noticed that several of our students are feeling a rekindled inspiration to write, sing, paint, or otherwise express themselves. [H2OSprtlvr] When you give an energy report via Troy, is it specific to the members in attendance or for people on the East Coast or everyone worldwide? I ask only because some Michael channelers seem to give energy reports based on the region they reside in. [Michael_Entity] In most cases we interpret the energy in terms of the North American continent. If the channel directs this further we may then interpret more specifically in terms of those in attendance, or a country, or the planet. We are describing our work with Troy, but many of our channels are regularly more specific to a region and to those in attendance. Good night to each of you. We will now conclude.
DanielaS posted a topic in 2015 Special EventsWILF2015 - What I Learned From 2015 Workshop 12/5/2015 Hello to each of you. We are here, now. We can begin. There are a multitude of ways that one can examine a passing of time and determine what was useful and meaningful from it. There is no single method or way, and certainly no single conclusion about what was useful and meaningful. In fact, even after a lifetime ends, even after Review, an entire lifetime is found to be rich with resources for meaning and value that arise because new contexts of understanding evolve so that new layers previously unnoticed or irrelevant become deeply meaningful and useful. For example, if a person loses her job, struggles toward a new source of income, and then finally stabilizes, she might look back and see that she learned how to navigate the obstacles of the economy, hiring processes, clarifying of skills, etc. Later she may realize she had learned how to trust herself and to sustain her confidence. Still later, she may realize that she now has deeply meaningful relationships in her life that now exist only because of the change in her employment. And so on, and on, and on. The depth of value and meaning of experience is limited only by current contexts and levels of understanding. Those contexts and levels of understanding evolve so that the past is never dead. It will always be rich and alive with more. Your first lifetimes are still being plumbed for their value and meaning. And so the value and meaning of experience of a past year can be assessed, but it cannot be conclusive at any moment. However, in order to evolve in understanding and contexts, one must take those moments of review and Review from wherever one happens to be because understanding and broadening contexts are cumulative. We have offered various ways for assessing one's passing year, and these can be explored through research with "TLE" or in your own records of work with us. Today, we will offer another method to consider for your review of your past year. What we will offer to you today are two ideas for consideration: a SIMPLE ASSESSMENT and an ADVANCED ASSESSMENT. We will share the Advanced Assessment, first, so that the Simple Assessment will already have its foundation laid out. One of the reasons that October through December tend to be "seasons of Chief Features" is because this is when most become reflective on the time that has passed within the arbitrary framework of a year. While one is busy living life it can be easy to float above reflection, and though life continues to be lived at the end of the year, it is also a tradition to consider what has come to pass so that one can look ahead toward what one wishes to aim. Though each of you can come up with the more obvious details that may describe the patterns of your year, we offer here a broader context that might put all of the details into perspective. We now suggest that each of you start a document or have a pen and paper handy. We will label this next section WORKSHOP. ***WORKSHOP*** We suggest that you hold off on writing until we suggest otherwise. That way you have all pieces of information and can organize your work accordingly. What we will share with you as this "Advanced Assessment" is based in great part on how Review works after a lifetime. Review after a lifetime is far more elaborate, but what we will share here is part of it. Keep this in mind as we limit our reference of framework to a year. In other words, it applies to an entire lifetimes, as well. Every year will have the same four basic categories of experiences. All categories of experiences are active, but some may stand out or be less demanding during a year. So your first consideration here is these four categories: HEALTH, RELATIONSHIPS, LIFE, and SPIRIT. HEALTH = that of your BODY and that of your RESOURCES RELATIONSHIPS = that with YOURSELF and those with OTHERS LIFE = the quality of PLANETARY and/or PERSONAL Life SPIRITUALITY = the state or well-being of your future This equates to 4 Categories or 7 sub-categories relative to our familiar system of 7 and the Axes. FIRST ASSESSMENT - your first assessment, then, would be to look at these categories to see which one/s were dominant for you over a year. Were you dealing with the demands of HEALTH, and was that the health of your body or health of your resources? Were Relationships dominant? Was that about how you feel about yourself, or about others? Did your Spirituality dominate because you were focused on your anticipation or fear related to your future? Did you cycle through all Categories and Sub-categories in a way that none stood as more demanding than others? Once you have considered what may have stood out as most-demanding or most-chosen as your focus, you can then say that your year has been a HEALTH YEAR. Or it was a RELATIONSHIP YEAR. etc. The assessments here are not based on any factors other than navigation, choice, experiences, and cumulative actions, feelings, and thoughts. In other words, there is no corresponding key in your overleaves to reveal the quality, meaning, and usefulness of a year. Before we continue, we will invite your feedback. Based on your initial assessment at this moment, how would you describe your 2015 in the terms above? Janet: I think I’ve had a LIFE year. NickG: Focused on Relationships ClaireC: Health/Relationships Bobby: Relationships... definitely VIP: Based on this definition of spirituality, I would say a spiritual year for me, but relationships and life were close I guess Diane: Health/Spirituality Johanne: Life/relationship Maureen: Health/Spirituality/Relationships/Life. In that order. It was a challenging year. Diane_HB: Relationship Maureen: It still is ...it's not over yet. We know that "Spirituality" tends to have a different idea attached to it, but all forms of Spirituality are about the future and how that builds from the understanding of the past. SECOND ASSESSMENT We have shared with our students the concepts of RIGHTS. These are 7 inherent values and states that come with Essence that no Personality or lifetime can diminish for Essence. However, those Rights can be diminished for a Personality, a lifetime, and a people by Personality, a lifetime, or people. Your Second Assessment will be a cross-reference with the list of RIGHTS so that you can see what your year was fighting for, trying to remember, trying to practice, trying to regain, trying to understand, etc. CORRECTION: your Second Assessment will be a cross-reference between your dominant Category and this list of Rights. We will share a quick review list of these RIGHTS: 1 - THE RIGHT TO EXIST, or TO BE, TO BE REAL, and TO HAVE 2 - THE RIGHT TO CREATION AND INTIMACY, or THE RIGHT TO FEEL 3 - THE RIGHT TO CHANGE, TAKE ACTION, or THE RIGHT TO BE FREE 4 - THE RIGHT TO LOVE/BE LOVED 5 - THE RIGHT TO EXPRESSION, or THE RIGHT TO ACCESS OR SHARE THE TRUTH 6 - THE RIGHT TO IMAGINATION, VISION, or THE RIGHT TO DREAM 7 - THE RIGHT TO TRUST, TO KNOW, or THE RIGHT TO A FUTURE What you would want to do with this list is now look at your most-demanding or most-focused Category and then look at this list to see which Right was being challenged, sustained, or regained. For example, you may have had a RELATIONSHIP YEAR (with others), and you now see that these relationships helped you regain/remember your Right To Love and Be Loved, or maybe it challenged your Right to Exist, or maybe it helped sustain your Right to Trust. Your Rights will always be in a state of being challenged, sustained, or regained. Based on your initial assessments, what do you think your Category is and what Right was the focus, and was it challenged, sustained, or regained? Bobby: The most obvious one to me at first was 5 - THE RIGHT TO EXPRESSION, or THE RIGHT TO ACCESS OR SHARE THE TRUTH VIP: Category: spirituality; Right: right to change/take action (challenged ) Diane: The Right to Trust ClaireC: The Right to Exist. NickG: The category for me would still be relationships but for the rights I don't know... I think it's between 2 and 4 but the rights seemed to be switching between challenged, sustained, and regained throughout the year Janet: Right to take action and be free was challenged and regained; right to trust was sustained VIP: But I'm not 100% certain those were the most prominent. It could have been right #7 being challenged as well (still in terms of spirituality, or even #5.) Diane_HB: Relationship - right to love/be loved as well as Spirituality - right to change/take action. Tex says for him it's 3, 4, and 5 Johanne: Relationship - right to take action - challenge ClaireC: Followed by the Right to Change, Take Action, Be Free Maureen: THE RIGHT TO TRUST was challenged sustained, and regained, throughout the year. Mosty challenged though. This is why we refer to this as the Advanced Assessment. As you make your Assessment, you can see the nuances begin to unfold across the nuances. However, to help your assessment, let one come to the top of your assessments for Category and Right and state. You can explore from there. WHAT TO DO WITH THIS INSIGHT Once you have made your assessment, allowing one Category to stand out, one Right stand out, and one state of that Right, then let your year of experiences filter through that combination assessment. It is okay that there are further nuances and variations that you can see. Just start with one strong combination and look at your year again in light of that. Maureen: Mine was 7, 3 and the chaotic side of 2. If it is difficult for you to let the whole year filter through a strong combination, then we suggest setting your strong combination and then just looking at what is currently standing out to you as a powerful pattern during the year. For example: Regardless of relationships and health and spirituality, LIFE was a big concern this year. The quality of life for the planet seemed quite strong and important amid all other categories and nuances. And though there were many Rights that could be valid within that great context, you note that it really came down to being about THE RIGHT TO EXPRESSION and what that means in terms of honesty, ethics, and sharing of truths rather than an imposition of truths. It was a challenging year for truth about the quality of life for the planet. This example is not specific to anyone, but merely an example. Though we know the example is relevant to our channel. VIP: Well here's mine following that example then... VIP: Spirituality (concern for the future) was a big concern this year. My right to access and know the truth (my truth about how I feel within myself - not anyone else's truth), and then to share it so that I could take action, was quite severely challenged and continues to be, although the weakness in being able to do so must have always existed. The above cross-referencing of Category with Right and state of Right is an Advanced Assessment that will ask you to focus on your highlights, turning points, patterns, etc. that stand out from your current review of the year. Once you have a nice sense of those greater patterns, you can then look at the more delicate or nuanced patterns. If you only looked at the greatest patterns, you will have gained more insight about "what you learned" in your year than you might have in years that simply blur into another. ViP, your example is a good one. VIP: thank you! We suggest each of you write out a paragraph to put into words your greater assessment. It does not have to be here. It can be private, in a blog, or shared with loved ones, etc. We can suggest for those who are willing, a wave of "WILF2015" blog posts to encourage greater insights and community assessments. The sharing of such patterns and insights is not just a novelty, but a means of clearing the fog of daunting review for all involved. SIMPLE ASSESSMENT Now we can share with you the means for a Simple Assessment. A Simple Assessment can be quick look at a single event or experience that mattered most to you, and may not have been a pattern. Did this fall into Health, Relationships, Life, or Spirituality? From there, you can ask yourself what you learned from that experience within that context/category. That Simple Assessment can shed more light on your meaning and usefulness of a year during one thoughtful assessment than many years get. THE WORK - what we suggest from here is that each of you take time to either do an Advanced Assessment or a Simple Assessment and then write or share in some way your thoughts and feelings in response to "what did I learn from 2015?" On your own or in your trusted community. Great insights, solutions, resolutions, and peaceful moves forward into your next year can come from this seemingly simple effort to just make a few moments to think and feel things through. Having a nice structure through which to organize your thoughts and feelings about such a great collection of experiences can help to then open you to newer and even more meaningful layers that will adapt to your evolving understanding. QUESTIONS - floor is now open VIP: Michael - does "right to a future" mean the right to simply exist at a future point in time, or the right to define the future oneself(assuming that one will in fact exist at that later point in time?) If the latter, then does it differ from the right to create, or take action, or express - since all these might be part of defining that future? The Right To A Future is inclusive of all other Rights. The Right to Exist references the moment and the past from which that moment has been built. The Right to Have, Express, Trust, etc, all reference the moment. Because you evolve, "the future" must be considered as valid, even if outside of the constraints of Time. However evolution is organized, it remains true that there is a difference at one point and another. So the Right To The Future is the Right to Spirit, to exist beyond the moment, to express beyond the moment, to have beyond the moment, to trust beyond the moment, to change and change again, etc. The Right to Evolve. The Right to Change is not necessarily an evolution, but can be directional. All Evolution is built from Change, but not all Change is evolution. But because all Rights evolve one, we prefer the term "Future" here as it inclusive of all paces, choices, etc. Does this make sense? VIP: Yes, that is a great help. Thank you! Yes, Janet Janet: I had the year of unprecedented travel that you predicted for some of your students in a higher moving centered year. Does it help to try to correlate our assessment with the overleaves for the year? Mine certainly correlates. The correlation may be there, but it is best to assess without considering that correlation. After your assessment, you may then see how closely it resonates with your own overleaves or those of the year. We would say that your experiences may correlate to the overleaves of the year, but what you learned is independent from that. That part is entirely up to you. Janet: That makes sense. Thanks. Next, Maureen. Maureen: Michael, just a comment that these "meaningful layers" you speak of, or patterns, can extend to past lives as well. I'm in the process (I have been all year) of seeing the meaning of this challenging year, as it stands on it's own, and also how it connects or resonates with another (past) life. For me it's been about Health and Healing and how one's well being can be sustained through many different states. It has been very challenging but also it feels like that expression. "You can't go around it - you must go through it". I am also seeing that it has had similar "value" for others. Yes, this is why we mentioned that this is one of the methods by which Essence Reviews an entire lifetime. This method of assessment can then extend into greater arcs of time or lifetimes to see patterns within patterns and layers upon layers. You can practice this by looking at your entire life to-date and assess a Category, Right, and state of Right. This can sum of your entire life in broad enough terms that it is not limiting, but also in specific enough terms that it allows you to start the comprehension of value, meaning, and usefulness of your experiences. Next, Nick. NickG: If these reviews aren't done consciously or at least with conscious intent, are they done in a more unconscious way through things like dreams, imagination, etc...? Or are the experiences sort of left to be processed for whenever one wishes to look at them? There are reviews every 7 years of a life in some way. The more asleep a personality the more likely these will simply show up as struggles, strange turning points, down times, growing pains, etc. However, for those who are more awake and aware, reviews can happen every day, every week, every month, and this does not require a method such as we just shared, but a simple matter of reflection. The more one reflects on the life, the softer the reviews every 7 years, and the easier the transition into death. The more one ignores reflection, the more intense these natural cycles of review can be, and the more intense and challenging the after-death review. If our students took time to reflect on each day at the beginning or middle or end of a day, it can do wonders for health, relationships, life, and spirit. Other terms for "reflection" might be gratitude, meditation, sharing, affection, etc. In other words, the more days that pass with your acknowledging the value, meaning, and usefulness of your experiences, the more value, meaning, and usefulness of your subsequent experiences. Last question, Claire. ClaireC: I guess everything isn't necessarily "clear" after death then? One must still "do the work"? Personality remains intact after death. There is no sudden shift into perspective of Essence. You remain You. And the work continues. The more asleep the Personality, the more it carries forward the reality/life/familiarity from which it came, but the more awake a Personality, the more curiosity, enthusiasm, and joy there is in validation of persistent existence and dimensions of existence. ClaireC: Do they just continue on some kind of parallel life until they "get it"? That depends. If they do not realize they have died, then yes. Everything is replicated, though there is a sense that "something" is off, and this sense grows as "tears" in that reality begin to grow to reveal the truth of their death. For many, the realization of death is present, so the replication is not necessary, but the personality's ideas of what to expect after death then play out. If that person thought he was going to hell, he will. Until he realizes this is silly. It is a hoot. ClaireC: Do people actually meet up on the Astral with others who die or have died before them? Yes, they do. ClaireC: It must be some reunion comparing all those beliefs. Even if that Essence has reincarnated, it takes very little to generate the template of familiarity/personality that a person might recognize. ClaireC: Thank you, Michael. This is a never-ending fascinating subject for me and many others. :) The emotional bodies of every Personality continue, as well, so even as Essence continues incarnation, it is very much like an Entity in that it is comprised of multiple Personalities in the same that an Entity is multiple Essences. So the "spirit" of a Personality is easily accessible for those who die later. Clarification: so the "spirit" of those who have died can easily remain available for greeting those who die after them. We will conclude here for today. Each of you have learned a lot from your 2015. We cannot presume to tell you what that might be, but we can offer you the tools for you to clarify this for yourselves.
