Michael Speaks Open Floor May 23, 2015 Channel: Troy Tolley Luciana: how a person can let go when it became very attached to someone? MEntity: One of the most effective ways for one to "let go" of anything or anyone is "to let it BE." Often what one means when one seeks to "let go" is to alter the investment in a person or thing to be what one expected it to be, not what it IS. To "let go," one must "let BE," which means that you do not have to sever attachments or connections, but learn how to embrace and allow someone or something to be what it is, or what he or she wishes to be on his or her own terms. Your attachments are often not related to the individual at all, but to the ideas projected or infused into that person. If you are grieving the loss of a person to death or to the change or ending of a relationship, then you must allow the grieving process, which is not the same thing as attachment. The grieving process is one's process of accepting a difficult or unwanted truth. One does not have to detach from a person as a means to allow grief. But one does have to LET THE TRUTH BE as a means of "letting go." So when you seek to "let go," instead of focusing on how to detach, ask yourself what the truth is, and do the work of embracing or allowing that truth. Then you will know what to do from there. Of course, this topic is not one that can be so easily summed up in a quick response, but this response can be a place to start. Shazam: I understand that to the essence, all incarnations happen simultaneously. Now does this mean, if I were to make contact with any of my future or past lives, that the personality to whom I am contacting would be the same age as I am at the moment of contact? To say if I were to effect my past life when I am twenty, I would be effecting a 20 year old past life? MEntity: It is a misnomer to say that all incarnations happen simultaneously, because they actually do not. They are not as linear in progression as one would expect, but they are also not happening "all at once." Think of the "all at once" in this way: If you are baking cookies, you still go through the process of mixing the batter, forming the dough, organizing the dough, baking the dough, pulling out the dough, cooling the end product, etc. It could easily be described that you "made all of those cookies 'at once," but there was a progression involved within that "at once." This is similar to how lifetimes work for Essence (and how original Casting works). So while it could be said that many lifetimes are "happening at once," there is still an awesome order to the progression that is not much different from how one may bake a batch of cookies and consider those to be done "all at once." For Essence, the "at once" comes because time is very different on that scale, but each lifetime is its own form and shape within a moment of time that is organized as distinct from every other lifetime. For you, as Personality, baking your batch of cookies from your greater perspective, it is easy for you to say that you baked all of those cookies at once, but only because that is how you experience that frame of time. The reality will still be true that each cookie was formed from a set of steps that were distinct and organized in time. When you speak of your "future" or "past" lives, it may be the equivalent of an oven rack of cookies, then, if you will. The "future" and "past" are only relative to the individual cookie, not to the cookie maker. With that being said, we can respond to your question: Your efforts to communicate or sense or draw in from another life will not be relative to your physical age. You as a 20 year old can contact "you" in another life as a 50 year old. Physical age is not a linking factor. In fact, one of the only and one of the strongest factors of connection across lives is only in terms of related experiences. If you are struggling with an illness at 50 in one life and struggling with an illness at 20 in another life, then that struggle can be a linking factor. Age will be irrelevant. Maureen: Michael, I asked this question in 2011. “How do you see any of our senses, as Roles in Essence, being expanded on in the future - whether through evolution, intervention, etc. – that might surprise us?” Maureen: As part of your answer you said: “In terms of the evolved senses as they relate to Roles, the descriptions would remain the same, but they may manifest as the following ways: …Priests/Orientation, as evolved to allow for easy location of "portals" that include time and space anomalies; and Kings/Relationality, or the capacity for harnessing, stabilizing, and using the time/space anomalies.” Maureen: Would you elaborate on how Priests and Kings would/might work with their senses, Orientation and Relationality, on time and space anomalies in the future? Maureen: If there is not enough time please provide an answer for the Priest Role, only, and I’ll ask about the King Role at another session MEntity: Within 25 to 100 years, the stabilization of access to, and creation of, "wormholes" is highly likely. As that likelihood is realized, so will the necessity for certain senses to evolve. This is because the nature of access and use of increasing control over time and space will require those senses for the phenomena to be used effectively and as a tool. The concept of quantum tunneling, wormholes, "folding" of space/time are not science fiction, but anticipation for valid use of natural occurrences. When a Role evolves its inherent senses, that sense becomes accessible to all other Roles through the Overleaves. So when the King and Priest evolve toward the senses as we describe them, they are "unlocked" for every other Role to access through variations on the Overleaves as they correspond to the Roles/Axes. We point this out because it will not just be Kings and Priests in science working with this leap in understanding and stabilization, but any Role interested in a lifetime working with those senses. Those senses, then, would become tools for mapping out a new layer of reality that is already in place, but not fully understood or known or utilized. Those senses are not necessarily limited to the Roles or the Roles who choose overleaves to access those senses, but can extend into tools that represent those same senses so that "anyone" can access that sense. Our point being that once the senses are unlocked, they can be, eventually, be used by everyone in some way. And the focus of these particular senses are looking at how to make use of the malleable fabric of time/space. If you think your Internet access is amazing, you may be quite shocked at what all of this implies. ViP: "Input" has been defined by you, through Troy, as: "a channel or frequency through which an Essence becomes aware, processes, and comprehends." ViP: From this, I assume that perceptions from the five senses of the body (assuming there are only 5, though of course there are probably more) reach Essence via an input. ViP: Can you give a brief idea of how Senses and Inputs and Chakras/Centers are related to one another and work together in order to convey sense impressions to a person's Essence? ViP: (I am quite sure this will require a topic-level response in itself, so if you could give a brief beginning of a response to point further directions for questions, that would be great.) ViP: (Also, I was referring to the basic 5 senses, ie, touch, smell, hearing, etc, not the ones that Maureen just referred to - but please cover anything you consider relevant.) MEntity: To accommodate this format for our exchange, our response will be in terms of shortcut analogies to help convey as much as possible: First, consider how you process your own day. Your 5 senses are alive and active at all times. However, unless you reach for something and seek to TOUCH/FEEL it, you probably do not notice your clothing on your skin, the temperature of the air, the shoes on your feet, etc. For Touch to be meaningful, it tends to require intention or attention. You are touching all day, but unless that touch grabs your attention or is directed by intention, the touch is passively processed and unnoticed. Your brain is registering ALL of it, and knows that your butt is on a chair, but "you" do not particularly notice that your butt is on a chair, unless the butt starts hurting or it is a particularly comfortable seat. So in terms of INPUT, the senses are fed into that input based on ATTENTION or INTENTION. When the sensory input is ignited by attention or intention, then you are AWARE. And this is the same way it works for Essence in terms of Input. Everything is being funneled into your Inputs at all times and "dumped" into a reservoir for reference and processing and review, but when something in funneled through that was based on ATTENTION or INTENTION, then it activates the Awareness. The 5 senses described here are not specific to an Input, but are a net that is cast for any possible moment of ATTENTION or INTENTION, and then the experience is funneled into the appropriate input where Awareness, Processing, and Comprehension is activated for Essence. The more one has experiences that draw one's Attention, or where one is guided by active Intention, the greater the use of the Inputs and the greater the clarity of access to the life the Essence has. Chakras would work in a similar way. In the context of this question, at least, they can be understood as a net that is cast for all dimensions of the self to monitor for Attention or Intention. As you know, we can always say more on a subject, but we think this may be helpful for now. Janet: There is a set of books called 'The Ra Material', purported to be authored by 'Ra, an humble messenger of the Law of One'. The books contain quite a bit of material that correlates with the Michael material. Both the Ra books and some of the material purported to be from the entity known as Germane speak of spiritual paths referred to as service to others and service to self. Who or what is Ra, and is there any validity to the idea of a spiritual path known as service to self? MEntity: Ra refers to the 8th Manifestation of Infinite Soul approximately 8000 years ago. The material that is shared now is from some fragments who were directly impressed and moved by that Manifestation. However, it is an interpretation and is based on access to the Essence of the individual/s relaying the information, and not on direct access to what was known as Ra. One can see the same from those who claim to carry forth further teachings of Jesus, for instance. It is not the teaching of the Infinite Soul, but an interpretation based on what the original teaching meant or means to the individual. The same has happened even more recently by those touched by Seth and Jane Roberts who now falsely claim to speak on their behalf. So it is not that the teachings are untrue, but that the teachings are their own. Maureen: The Course In Miracles was apparently channeling "Jesus". MEntity: However, in the case of Ra, the base idea is valid in that he taught of the value of the Higher Moving Center and its function, and as the fragment was a King, he was able to teach the ramifications of serving the self vs serving of others. Servers learn the truth of accelerated evolution quite early due to their inclination toward the serving of others. It is the "fastest" path of evolution. However, Servers get hung up near the end because then they must learn how to receive service and how to gain power through themselves, not through others. Kings, on the other hand, are often quite slow to grasp the appeal of serving others, since they can so easily prompt others to serve them. This makes for long arcs of evolution across and within lifetimes. But in much the same way that a revelation eventually comes to a Server that "to serve others" requires a circuit that allows the self to be served, the King eventually realizes that the self is benefited in much healthier ways through their leadership being a service to others. Janet: That makes a lot of sense. Thank you Michael. MEntity: So this fragment was an important pick for the Infinite Soul at the time. Both Service to Self and Service to Other are valid paths, and both must be understood and implemented at some point in every fragment's evolution before cycling off. They are not contradictory terms. We must conclude here for today. We know we did not tend to the entire queue, but we trust we will continue our exchanges with you again soon. Good day to each of you. Goodbye, for now.
