July 1, 2007 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. As Troy has already received the Energy Report for our students, we will immediately open the floor to questions from you. You may begin. [Pathfinder] I wanted to follow up on the Nile incarnations. One of the therapies I’ve studied deeply is called Shen and I feel it comes from that same time frame in Egypt. In this life, there have been strifes with “founder” Richard Pavek and teachers veering off into Kairos etc, and it feels as if we are working through some leftovers from the Egypt and later times. Can you tell us more of this? [Michael Entity] In your particular case there is a nonet Configuration at work on a larger task of refining a method of healing. The stage in which your Configuration is presently is within the Corruption phase, bringing with it a bit of challenge and rift, but it is merely a part of the very process of refinement. This Configuration began in Egypt during the time you refer to as the “Nile incarnations.” The Corruption phase always feels threatening to those involved with a evolutionary process, but if the focus is held, the benefit of this so-called corruption will find clarity. It is true that what you call “Shen” is related to origins during the same lifetimes that created your Configuration. [liiona24] Hello Michael, I don’t ever remember reading anything about how many grand cycles you, the Michael Entity, have had. (Or would it be a range of number of grand cycles of fragments that are part of your entity?) Also if there is a maximum number of grand cycles we can go through? If this has been answered somewhere I apologize for the repeat question. I have not ever run across it. [Michael Entity] The average Grand Cycle among the members of our Entity are 13. Each fragment has its own number of Grand Cycles. There is no need to apologize for asking a question that may have been asked of is previously. We do not lose our ability to answer when repeat questions are asked from among our students, and much of what we teach IS repeated repeatedly. There is no maximum Grand Cycle that a fragment can have experienced, though the greatest number we know of is 102. It should be noted that it would be more accurate to refer to the consciousness involved in experiencing a Grand Cycle as being a SPARK, rather than a fragment. [Upst8] Sometime ago, there was mention of the USA running a parallel course with the ancient Roman Roman civilization. Is the USA still on this course, and if so, where are we in the timeline with the Roman time era? (Been watching the HBO series of Rome, with interest) [Michael Entity] Yes, this parallel course is still in effect and details of this were shared in a fairly recent chat with our students. Troy will include those details in the final copy of this transcript. [Upst8] oh, must have missed that one, thank you [Michael Entity] We can easily repeat, as mentioned in our previous response to Marion, the response here, however: We will allow for the final transcript to have the elaboration, but we see the timeline as being “parallel” to the final days of disastrous invasion choices. INCLUDED EXCERPT from Michael Speaks 2007-02-05: We would state that you are still on parallel with this time period, though moving beyond into its finale with parallels to the disastrous invasion choices. These “parallels” are not literal, but global conscious experiences that become patterns among those participating. This allows for certain scenarios to be played out “again,” but with a rearrangement of characters/fragments playing roles within those similar scenarios. In other words, there will be “other Abraham Lincolns,” other “Hitlers,” etc. But these are not prescribed or predestined; they are created by collective choices. There are layers of these parallels to consider, as well, since there are layers of collective un/consciousness. For instance, your world is also paralleling the progression of Atlantis. Much of these repetitive cycles are in place for your species as a result of the burning of the Alexandrian libraries, wherein all collected knowledge that had been gained as a species (which far exceeds what is shared among your species now) was lost; reset. The “repeating of history” helps to regain that knowledge as a species, much in the same way that a child who is an Old Soul must still “re-grow up” in each lifetime as a means to regain his potential consciousness. END EXCERPT [rvolkman] Hi Michael and Troy – Ron here – I’m a Warrior but I have a discarnate Scholar ET. Sometimes it feels like there is a “voice” inside that continually wants to describe how “things work”. Sometimes this is handy, but other times it is tedious. Can a discarnate ET have direct influence on us to the point where they may actually seem to speak through us or appear to be a part of our physical personality? [Michael Entity] The only way any other fragment can have such an influence upon you is through your choice to have it be so. Often this influence is invited because of the many benefits, but it does often come with unexpected annoyances and distractions, as well. Imagine the joy of falling in love and truly inviting that person to share your life and your space, but eventually finding a great deal of differences that encourage compromise, tolerance, or acceptance. The same could be said of fragments sharing the same space, time, and energy for conscious interaction. In your case, yes, it is the influence of the Scholar, as there have been lives in the past when your Essence’s Personality noted how much more insight could be had if there was a greater understanding of the dynamics of things observed. This is your first life experimenting with the access to your Scholar Essence Twin for this very purpose. The Scholar, not being physical at this time, is all-too-eager to offer those insights as this Essence literally loves the physical plane and its workings, mysteries. [Cyprus] This is sort of a personal question, but I am sure I am not the only on that this happens to, so I thought it could benefit others as well. I have been feeling very overwhelmed lately. I feel as if I am either on high or completely off. I am much more comfortable in a sort of middle area, I can't find any balance. No matter what I seem to do I can't seem to get there. Please advise. [Michael Entity] The Energy Report will most likely address this issue as your month of July moves into the exploration of the ATTITUDE and the Attitude this year is what we have described as REALIST. For those who are not familiar with the energy of Realism, which you are not, then this energy can feel overwhelming and even a bit painful. In addition to this, the examination over the month of July appears to us to be a deep examination of SELF and what is true about you at this point in your life. This, in itself, can be painful, as what we will call “stuff” comes to the surface for examination that is not particularly enjoyable. Without understanding that this wave of energy is moving through, especially for one who resist Realism, the energy can feel like a constant electrical current that simply will not stop. When there are breaks in the flow, then the body feels inclined to withdraw into sleep as respite before the next current begins. Understanding that this energy is simply available for WHEN YOU WISH TO USE IT, then you can find appropriate ways to ground what is not used. In your case, the use of the energy could best be used to address your anxiety over your changes in work and geographic locations/commute. You really do not like changes of this sort, so it would do you well to grasp that your participation in the change is one of CHOICE, not imposition, and that it is okay. When you wish not to have the energy current affecting you, a shower can help dissipate it, but you also have the ability to simply use your consciousness to state that “this is not my energy,” and give it a few moments to fall back to the earth. We will also say that part of the “stuff” that will come up for you, and part of the energy current that runs through you now, is related to the extended emotional experience during Troy's battle with his illness and your inability to be within his presence. You have not fully “forgiven” yourself for this (which is not a necessary act), but you are carrying the jumble of energy until you have contact with Troy. This will do no good for either of you, so it is Good Work to dissipate it as you can. [Pathfinder] I want to follow up on the earlier “Shen” question – what is a nonet Configuration? Are we a specific number? with different roles/tasks? spread across the globe? about to come together in one place? [Michael Entity] A Nonet is a Configuration of NINE. A Configuration consists of various Roles and while each fragment remains with his or her own Life Task, it usually dovetails in some way with the Task of the Configuration. It is not required that any of the fragments within a Configuration have contact, or even know each other within the lifetime. Your Configuration is not about to gather and is spread fairly globally. Troy will include an excerpt in the final transcript describing in further detail the workings of a Configuration. [See Michael Speaks -- Configurations for the referenced session.] [butterfly syndicate] Thanks! Ok, I was wondering whether Europe or the EU as a body are likely to remain democratic considering the laws that have been passed recently in GB for instance and Germany. Are we following the US in their “Roman parallel” path? [Michael Entity] Ironically, the European countries are moving more and more toward the more restrictive aspects of what the U.S. has implemented for so long, while the U.S. is heading for a collapse of this very system that simply will not work any longer in a Mature Soul world. As the U.S. regains its footing in the world as a leader, it will only be done through a shift completely from Young Soul values into Mature Soul reality. However, many European countries are now attracting a massive wave of Young and Baby Souls who wish to “get away from” the movement of the Mature Soul. Mature and Older souls are migrating to the United States as the collapse is very enticing to the Mature drama, as well as exciting prospect of rebuilding a nation with more progressive values that actually work. European countries are currently finding politicians and movements taking a direction that is to cater to the influx of Younger and Baby Souls coming over the next 50 years. Although Europe has been fairly conservative anyway, the conservative stance was more out of an interest in preserving the freedoms of various peoples, but the conservatism that is moving in now will be more about the imposition of values defined by specific groups. We will conclude our interaction. We will say goodnight here: Goodnight.
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: December 2009] [Question] a cosmology question ? – the Universe is said to be 14 billion years old. Recognizing the problem with ‘time’, when were the cadres/entities ‘cast’ out from Tao in relationship to the creation of this Universe? Before, during, or after? (I have been told my essence/soul is also 14 billion ‘years’ old -I am curious how this ‘fits’). [Michael Entity] Cadres and Entities are cast over and over within a Universe with every return to Tao, which includes the choice of your Essence’s new Role, new Entity, new Cadre, etc., for every Grand Cycle. The measurement of time for that Universe and its first casting of Entities is always relative to the Planetary System of the Sentience at the time of such a question. [Question] the earth is said to be just over 4 billion years old so we were cast ‘last’ 4 billion years ago? Where does the 14 billion ‘age’ come in? or was this in relationship to a prior planetary system of sentience? [Michael Entity] What we mean is that if we were answering this question for another fragment in another planetary system with a different measurement of time, we would have to answer with a very different scale. In terms of time measurement as can be understood in any practical sense, we can safely say that your (and our) current Sentience is at least 14 billion years old, “give or take” a billion or so. Keep in mind, however, that your ROLE may not be as “old” since you have returned to Tao multiple times in Grand Cycles.
[Excerpt from Michael Speaks -- July 2009] [Question] This is a carryover from the last chat and may be confusing; however, I’ll try and lay some groundwork. Last month’s chat, we had a very nice session on how it’s the Role in Essence that evolves through the Soul Age Levels, and that it’s Roles that go through the various Grand Cycle evolutionary experiences, not Essence, per se. Yet, conversely, we’re also told that it’s Essence who holds their casting place in Entity, which then recombines as a single being as it were, including recombining the Entities into a Cadre being, and even onwards into an Energy Ring being on the way back to Tao. My question would be a need for clarification about how Essence retains individual integrity enough to have Roles and multiple grand cycles within this larger recombined or integrated structure of Entities to Cadres to Energy Rings. [Michael Entity] We will offer up this analogy for you to consider: Within your single lifetime you are born and live a life full of impact, choices, relationships, foci, paths, environments, experiences, etc. At the end of that lifetime, it could be said that who you are is the culmination of that entire lifetime. Each day, each month, each relationship, each environment, etc. to your Personality in no way loses substantial existence or influence simply because the Personality ages. And so it is for Essence. Every Personality, lifetime, Agreement, Karma, Configuration, Entity, Cadre, Energy Ring in no way lose their relevance at the eventual “end” of a Grand Cycle. To take this further: in the same way that your waking up in the morning and changing clothes does not lose the day before, so it is that Essence does not lose itself. This may be difficult to fathom, but this analogy is as accurate as possible. Each Grand Cycle to Essence is like each day to your Personality, so to speak. Most Essences have only been “awake” for “3 days,” then. [Question] Although, how can one go on to be new roles, grand cycles, etc — are those akin to personalities to Essence types of experiences? [Michael Entity] Yes, when Essence (or Spark) returns to Tao and then chooses a new Grand Cycle, its choice of a new Role and relationships and Casting are similar to the Role’s choice of a new Personality, parents, geographical location, and Overleaves in each lifetime. [Question] So when essence recombines in the Causal Plane and above on its way back to Tao, it is still able to access these memories, even after it is Tao? [Michael Entity] Yes, the memories are always there for the “Spark” that is behind the choice of Essence Role, but not necessarily for the Essence Role and Personalities that are distinct to a particular Grand Cycle and Physical Plane. It is a misnomer to call them “memories” in this case, but it is the most accurate word for now. [ELABORATION REQUESTED BY TROY] One of way of understanding this thread of continuity for the Spark, or Essence, is to imagine a box of photographs from your childhood, and a box of video tapes from your youth, and DVDs of your adult life, etc. With each passing stage of life, your memories of the past are not a constant in your mind, but those stored images can trigger those memories in an instant. The same could be said of your Spark, or Essence, as it moves from one Grand Cycle to another. A “box of images” are left with Tao, so to speak, and can be drawn from at any point, or pulled up in between Cycles, but the “memories” are not exactly prominent in the current focus. [Question] So while individuality is ‘lost’ it is still ‘retained’ – I love when the rule of paradox applies [Michael Entity] The need for individuality is lost, but not the validity of it.
[Originally posted 4th Jan 2013 in a forum discussion on nTLE:] Jana: What remains between grand cycles is called "Spark". I believe it was said that this is not a term identical to the term "Essence". Essence, compared to Spark, has Role, Casting - anything else? Troy: "Spark" is an easier way to differentiate Essence Role from Essence, but Essence and Spark are basically the same. The Spark IS Essence, and Essence takes on a Role. Spark is just easier to use because "Essence" can mean so many different contexts.
