ASK Michael Live Chat June 1, 2014 Channel: Troy Tolley [ViP] Hi Michael, can you briefly describe the 7 circles of Conscience? [MEntity] For our response to be relevant, we ask if you are speaking in terms of "conscience" being that which is one's inner guide, or do you mean this in terms of awareness, or do you mean this in terms of consciousness? We know these terms are often used interchangeably. [ViP] You recently described "conscience" as being the sense of inner responsibility and compassion that had 7 Circles to it, so perhaps it would be in terms of the inner guide? I can provide the definition you gave if it would help [MEntity] We only wished for the clarification. We understand now. There may be other ways to describe the Circles of Conscience that are relevant to an individual, but we will offer these. Conscience is different from Consciousness and Awareness, but the merging of those three factors are vital for one's evolution, so they are often used interchangeably by the time one is an older soul. Conscience is that inner sense of guidance that one develops and learns to listen to as a means of navigating the life and for making choices. Conscience in its Positive Pole might be INTEGRITY while in the Negative Pole might be GUILT. The 7 Circles of Conscience, then, might be: SELF-NURTURING, SELF-PRESERVATION, SELF-SUFFICIENCY, SELF-DEFINING, SELF-ACCEPTANCE, SELF-ACTUALIZATION, and then SELF-MASTERY. Self-Nurturing Polarities would be CURIOSITY as the Positive Pole, and NEGLECT as the Negative Pole. Self-Preservation Polarities are VITALITY and DEFENSE, positive and negative, respectively. Self-Preservation would be VITALITY, and DEFENSE. Self-Sufficiency would be GENEROSITY, and PANIC. Self-Defining would be COMPASSION, and LOATHING. Self-Acceptance would be SOCIAL, and LONELINESS. Self-Actualizing would be EMPATHY and DENIAL. Self-Mastery would be RESPONSIBLE, and CONTROLLING. Many of our students often hover in the circles between Self-definition and Self-Mastery. We can elaborate upon this topic in a dedicated discussion. [Colleen] In 1937, Amelia Earhart disappeared. What became of her and what was her soul age, role, and overleaves? [MEntity] The fragment in question would be the Intellectually-Centered, Moving Part, 7th Level Young Scholar with the Goal of Flow that she would slide to Growth and Submission; an Idealist in Observation that slid to Passion, and a Chief Feature of Arrogance. This fragment appears to have encountered technical issues in-flight and was forced to crash-land near an island where she and her Task Companion lived out the rest of their days. [Kurtis] Hi Michael, like with the descriptions of the Server, Artisan and Warrior castings last Ask Michael, could you provide info on the Scholar-cast in those same formats? [MEntity] Scholar-Casting often shows up as heightened sensitivity, often felt in deep, emotional ways that "make no sense." This is often interpreted by the Scholar-cast as such a vulnerability that they often are the most secretive and "personal" with their exploration of the life. This Casting often gravitates toward anyone who can help them to "come out of themselves" in a way that is uninhibited and less self-conscious. This Casting often generates in the lifetime a love/hate, push/pull relationship with intimacy, at once desiring it greatly, but also convincing themselves that it is an unnecessary distraction. The Scholar-cast often struggles with his or her attention being fixated or fulfilled. In other words, when fixated, it is a means of escape, while when fulfilled, it is a product of exploration. These fragments can be of the most "kinky" of all. The Scholar-cast, more than even the Sage, or Sage-cast, can require feedback for insight into themselves, into the life, and the patterns of that life; they must "bounce" ideas off of others, see and hear these ideas played out in some way, so as to better navigate the library of thought that they carry. This can sometimes turn into a kind of paralysis if that sharing is not fulfilled in some way, locking them down with a sense of defeat for not having anyone to share those ideas and ideals with. We can always elaborate upon any of our terms, but for the sake of taking more questions today, we think this is a helpful start. [annay] Do we create more karma with people we end relationships with? Lets say if the other person is not happy with you ending the relationship ? Would you have to work it out in another life?? Even if you have forgiven the person yourself?? [MEntity] Anna, there is no categorical response that we can give to that question. The nature of Karma is so relative, that in one instance there may be Karma, while in another of the same circumstances, there is not. However, we can say that the ending of a relationship does not often generate a Ribbon only from the mere ending of the relationship, however difficult that may be for either party. Disappointment and grief are not inherently Karmic. If the one who ends the relationship has put the other party in some form of danger, or has significantly interfered with the capacity of the other party to choose, then a Ribbon can be generated. By "interfered" we mean that there is an active imposition on the capacity to choose. We are not speaking of the grief-stricken reactions that can impose restrictions of choice on the self. That is self-karmic, but not Karmic between the ones who have parted. If disappointment and grief were Karmic, we doubt we would ever return to Tao. [royce] Hello Michael , recently I asked about Objective Art vs Subjective art. I would like to take that into the realm of Modern storytelling. I don't feel there are a lot of examples of "Objective storytelling"; how might it differ in terms of approach than a lot of what we see in cinemas today? still lean heavily on suspense? horror? [MEntity] Before we reply, what do you mean by the additional end of your question? Are you asking if suspense and horror are ways to be Objective, or are you rhetorically suggesting that cinema leans heavily on suspense and horror? Please clarify. [royce] basically if a story was written with the intention of being objective art ( made with all of the centers) how might it look in comparison to a lot of stories out today which is more or less aimed to be emotional roller coasters. would objective art movies look almost entirely alien to us in how they would be approached? [MEntity] We understand and will respond. The effects of art are not often a fair representation of its origins. Objective and Subjective Arts can be interpreted and experienced in any number of ways relative to the interpreter. In fact, a great deal of Objective Art is "hated." It is not often received well. It is often threatening to the comforts and familiarities of the Personality. The same goes for genres. There can be Objective Horror and Subjective Horror. Objective and Subjective Art can only really describe the sources. However, there is validity to the fact that the source can have some effect, of course, but the individuals receiving/interpreting that art will always have the final say for how it is experienced. In terms of modern storytelling, a great shift is already in motion away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling. As we, as sentience, are now in the Century of Choice as a Platform for the species, CHOICE is becoming the vital key to a truly Objective method of storytelling. Modern gaming is already on the cutting edge of this, with Sages, Artisans, and Scholars flocking to its initial waves to help refine, expand upon, and spread its foundations. This move away from passive storytelling and into interactive storytelling is yet another expansion of impact from the shift in Soul Age away from Young to Mature. In that regard, it is an evolution, and represents Objective Art, as the source of that creativity must be inclusive, considering the broadest range of perceptions, paths, and probabilities as a means to fulfill the core of a story. We have never seen anything like it, and we find it beautiful. We often "sit in" with Troy as he plays. We are finding there is little difference between the architecture of gaming, and the process of incarnation, parallels, and probabilities. All higher concepts are eventually reflected in the Physical Plane in some way, and this dimension of existence is finding its footing. [Maureen] Michael, you said (to my sister): “Your higher Frequency and higher Female Energy allows you to endure much more than would someone with a lower Frequency, or Higher Male Energy. That endurance allows far more opportunities for healing that might not have been explored, otherwise.” Would you elaborate more on how endurance is experienced through the Higher/Lower Frequencies and Higher/Lower Male/Female Energy? [MEntity] Endurance can be a tool for any Frequency or Energy Ratio, but they would tend to show up differently. In Higher Frequencies, endurance is utilized by cycling through experiences of challenge so that no cycle through it is too deep or too much. That is not to say that a challenge might not feel or seem to be "too much, or too deep," but in the end it would not be. Higher Frequency fragments tend to work through experiences in layers, move on to other experiences, and other experiences, and then cycle back through. This helps bring about cycles of healing between cycles of challenge. Higher Creative/Female Energy helps one to emphasize problem-solving, intuitive navigation, and a trust in chaos, which leads one to having a greater endurance in terms of allowing challenges to be a part of the life. The pros of both of these can be that both allow room for healing. For the Lower Frequency fragments, there is still processing in layers, but it is from the inside/out of the experience, rather than from the outside/in. Higher Frequency fragments eventually get to the core, while Lower Frequency fragments start at the core. Because of this start at the core, there is little room for moving beyond the layers "above them" in that experience. They must find a way through all of those layers. Because of this dynamic, it can be difficult to access the healing that could be of benefit to that Lower Frequency. The Healing would tend to come in near the exit of the layers, if you will, and not often before that. That is not to say that healing is not available to the Lower Frequency when submerged in the core of an experience, but that they often do not allow for it. For the Higher Male fragments, the navigation of experiences can be one of a linear nature, structured, and intent, with a laser-like focus, which can also exclude anything distracting, such as healing. Again, it is not that healing is not available to the Higher Male/Focused Energy, but that it often must find its way into the path so as not to be a distraction. Does this help? [Maureen] Yes it does [MEntity] We must conclude here for today. Good evening to everyone.
July 1, 2004 Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Speaks Online – Open Floor [Note: Here is the transcript from Thursday’s Chat! It was great! I have asked Michael for some clarification on some of it, so there is editing involved. Enjoy! Troy] [M Entity] Hello to everyone. We are here with you. Tonight we will open the floor to any questions or topics of interest to each of you as best we can. Troy has restrictions against personal questions, but if you have a way to present a question that is beneficial for all, we will attempt to respond accordingly. [kittlekats41] This is based on a personal experience, but I am interested in an answer that everyone can relate to: when we moved down to Atlanta we stopped overnight at a hotel. Upon arrival here [to Atlanta] the energy felt off-centered and discordant, which it hadn’t been before. One of the cats was especially vocal and restless. We determined that we had picked up a ‘stray’ energy that attached itself to us at the hotel with a number of others; we were able to clean the space and remove the energy into a better environment for it – an old tree that is grounded. The question is: a) how common is it for this type of experience to occur? b) how can we deal with it when it does? and c) are animals a common barometer to identify when it happens? That is my question:-) [M Entity] We would first respond that we would not describe any energy as “stray” that might attach itself to you randomly. We have rarely seen a case of energetic resonance that was not in some way “invited” or allowed. However, what you refer to as “hotels” and “motels” are full of what might accurately be described as “echo energies”. In other words, the emotional and intellectual imprints from the many fragments passing through a small space (which is assumed by fragments to be a sanctuary in many ways) can become literally “coated” with these “echoes” of energy. In the same way that there are “ghosts” of the dead, there are “ghosts” of the living, as well. “Ghosts” are merely echoes of energy, whether from the living or the dead. With all of that being said, your being affected by an echo is based on a particular resonance you must have had with that “echo”. It appears to us that you were in a space of deeper concern, worry, anticipation, and possibly anxiety, than you were in the previous trip. [kittlekats41] true [M Entity] This would naturally align you with any other fragment's concerns, worries, anticipations, anxiety that had left an imprint in that hotel room or location. This alignment then would naturally amplify your own energy, yet again, and because it then becomes disproportional to your original concerns, etc., it can feel strangely disconcerting and distracting. [kittlekats41] would that echo remain as a presence for a number of weeks afterwards and be detected by the animals? [M Entity] We will respond to your questions as quickly and as orderly as possible. The way you can “deal with this” is to consciously “clear the space” in any environment that has acted as a sanctuary for so many other fragments. Doing so upon settling into your room can greatly increase your experience of peace and temporary ownership of that space. A simple visualization of a colorful light of your choice sweeping through the room and clearing it of all darker or heavier energies is enough. It is not necessary to create an elaborate ritual; just a simple, conscious shifting of the room’s energy to accommodate you is enough. We would suggest avoiding rituals focusing on “protection”, as this simply amplifies a contrast between you and your space and does not effect a peaceful, restful shift. Animals are more sensitive to these echoes than most humans, but they are even more sensitive to the effects of the echoes on their human companions. In other words, your animal companion was responding to your own agitations than to the separate “stray energy” you theorized. The “echo” remains only in the space in which is imprinted, but the effects of that echo upon you can last for weeks. It was Good Work that you created time to transform that effect upon you and to ground yourself again. [BradburySE] I just have a question about the number of inputs for the various roles. It seems to be well known that Artisans have five inputs and Sages three, but how about the other roles? I've never seen this written anywhere. [M Entity] The “solid roles” of King, Warrior, and Scholar have a single input, while the inspirational roles of Priest and Server have 2 inputs. [H2OSprtlvr] We were talking about the 9/11 movie by Michael Moore and it was mentioned that he is a Sage and he had a reincarnation from Josiah Royce. This seems confusing to me that he is a Sage, because all the studying and fact finding is so Scholar. I was wondering where the Scholar might be in his personality, since Sages only want to have fun and are not into fact finding or writing books. [M Entity] First we will say that we have never said, nor have we implied, that Sages “only want to have fun” and that they are not “into fact finding or writing books”. This conclusion is highly simplified and inaccurate of the Sage and of the Scholar. The very Essence of a Sage is to find the Truth and then to disseminate what they have come to believe is true. In that search for the Truth, they will use any means possible. The stereotype of the Sage comes from the fact that in most cases a Sage's method of “fact-finding” and “writing books” simply ends up looking like so much more “fun”. By contrast, the Scholars have been responsible for some of the most influential and “beautiful” music on your planet. This could look contrary to the stereotype of the Scholar, but in fact the Scholar finds the connection between music and math to be one of the most beautiful aspects of life on earth and if that can be translated into music, they will try. We explain this to you to help contribute to your broadening understanding of the Roles of Sage and Scholar. This is not to say that the fragment now known as Michael Moore does not have Scholar influences, because, in fact, he actually does. This Sage is Scholar-Cast, with a Server Essence Twin. [H2OSprtvr] I realize I was stereotyping and I'm grateful for further clarification on the roles. [M Entity] Comparing the lives of Beethoven and Royce/Moore can give you great insight into the differences between how a Sage-Cast Scholar (Beethoven) vs. a Scholar-Cast Sage (Michael Moore) may act within a lifetime. In most cases, a Sage-Cast individual will behave more like the “stereotypical” Sage than a Sage with different Casting. Furthermore, in most instances when a fragment is behaving like one of the Essence “stereotypes”, it is usually an indicator of that person's Casting than of their Role. [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because its difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that's kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? [M Entity] No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) [M Entity] It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then. [freyaisissuz] That's great, Troy, I will keep it short. I have sensed a connection with J Royce/M Moore. Is he a “reality shifter” or “dream maker” as in cadre 1/entity 3; if another, where? [M Entity] That is a valid observation. This is a fragment some of our channels would call a “wild card” within Cadre One, Entity Three, as well. This fragment is one of the youngest soul ages in that Entity. (3rd Level Mature) If there are no more questions, we will conclude for the evening. If there are more questions, we will take one more. [BradburySE]: A quick one [M Entity] Yes, Shannon, we will conclude with your question. [BradburySE] Who is this other “Dogma Dismantler” besides Michael Moore of whom you spoke in Troy’s energy report? Where will we find him, and is he or she now incarnated? [M Entity] Yes, he is incarnated: a Server Essence Twin of the Sage known as Michael Moore. The Server is a reincarnation of William James now focusing on the funneling of necessary requirements as a means to convey the Sage's “truth”. He may only be peripherally identified in the media. We believe he is one of the “producers” of Michael Moore's films, as well as several of his own projects which reflect some of the profound psychology explored in his previous life as William James. [BradburySE] Thank you, we can figure it out from here most likely! ? [M Entity] This relationship would appear to be more like a Task Companion relationship, but that is not the case. The relationship is taut with disagreements and power struggles, regardless of the powerful results. Good night to all of you. We will conclude here.
