  1. Michael Speaks Live Psychic Hygiene October 8, 2011 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here now. We can begin with discussion about the topic suggested: "Psychic Hygiene" For most fragments, the physical plane is met with some amount of awareness brought to the importance of Physical and, eventually, Spiritual Hygiene, or maintenance, if you will. Depending on the culture, sometimes one is emphasized over another, or both are emphasized, but these two "bodies" are often considered as priorities, either together or separately. Physical hygiene is fairly clearly understood as a necessity in modern culture and civilizations, and while the methods and motivations may differ across those, the effects are still beneficial. Spiritual Hygiene begins to be considered as a result of survival or prosperity. Rituals and practices come into play as a plea in times of struggle, or as a means to explore in times of prosperity. While the variations in Physical methods and motivations for hygiene tend to have the same effects and benefits, the rituals and practices for Spiritual Hygiene do not. Spiritual Rituals and practices tend to be geared toward the beliefs of the individual, religion, or culture of the time, and so do not act as a means of actual Hygiene, but more as a means of manipulation. Manipulation is not a "bad thing" in itself, but there are many who feel that their Spiritual practices and rituals are quite noble and beneficial, when actually they are often entirely geared toward the manipulation of favors, alleviation of fears, or the fulfillment of duties. The reason the Physical Hygiene can be rather consistent in its benefit, while Spiritual Hygiene can be rather inconsistent in effect is because one has immediate impact, and the other does not. Furthermore, the entire concept of "spirituality" is misunderstood as a body in and of itself, or a realm, or a dimension, etc, when it is not. Therefore, the practices and rituals put in place to directly benefit one's "Spirituality" is often lost as if thrown into a black hole of relevance. "Spirituality," or the Spiritual Body, is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts, and those parts are the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies. The Spiritual Body does not exist without those inclusions. So if one dismisses the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies for the sake of aiming for some sort of "Spiritual" ascension, acceptance, acceleration, advancement, etc, one is completely missing the point, and has not come to understand the nature of Spirituality. Spirituality is a concept much like that of Nature. Nature is something that cannot exist without all of the forms that make up what is understood as "Nature." To separate out the concept of Nature from its very nature would be absurd. And so it is that one's Spiritual practices and rituals are useless if they do not include or understand the necessity of inclusion of the hygiene for the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies. Naturally, then, the aim for Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Hygiene automatically benefits "Spirit," or "Spirituality." This is what we mean by "Psychic" Hygiene: the inclusion of the less-tangible aspects that make up your more intimate bodies; those of the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual. Our use of "psychic" may differ a bit from the general definition of the word, but we mean it in the sense of the inclusion of your psyche, or your consciousness, in relation to these Bodies. For instance: most of you know how to bathe your own bodies. This is a task that most of you do weekly, if not daily, in some form, with some of you doing so more thoroughly than others, but doing so, nonetheless. However, often or well you clean your body, we can say with some amount of confidence that most of you do not do so with a kind, thoughtful, loving hand in the process. A routine hand, yes. A thorough hand, yes. A skilled hand, yes. A dutiful hand, yes. And this cleans your Physical Body, but it does nothing for the psychic levels of that Body. By "psychic levels," we mean that there is little consciousness present or involved. All of our suggestions today will be rather simple. They should be rather easy to implement into your daily lives. They are not intended to be a distraction, but a support to your days. Our first suggestion, then, for the Physical Body is to BATHE YOURSELVES AS IF YOU CARE. It is that simple. This is not necessary every time you bathe yourself, but once out of every 4 times you may bathe yourself, include your capacity to CARE in the process. Bring some loving to your body; some appreciation, gratitude, affection. Be there for you on more than a dutiful or routine level. Truly be present in that body you are taking time to clean. However close you may be to somebody else, you will never be as close to any other body than your own. Ever. Bringing that simple shift in awareness to your bathing process is more meaningful to "spirit" and to you than any spiritual practice or ritual could ever be. The Emotional Body is the next-most tangible of all of you Bodies. This is not the case for every person, but for most. If you feel that your Intellectual Body is far more tangible than your Emotional Body, it is not a matter of fact, but a matter of emphasis that you think this is so. Technically, the Emotional Body is denser than the Intellectual Body, and then the Emotional springs from that. Because the Physical Body is so immediately tangible, and the "Spiritual" is of such an aspiration to so many, the Emotional and Intellectual Bodies are the most neglected and abused bodies on the planet. The hygiene of your Emotional Bodies can most often be helped through the use of SOUND. In particular, Tones, or music. Emotional hygiene could do well to take place at least once a month, but as often as you would like. There is a difference between escaping into music or sound, and harnessing it for hygiene. Much like there is a difference between going swimming, and taking a bath or shower. Exploring the tones associated with Chakras, either as vocal expressions or instrumental expressions, is helpful in putting into practice Emotional Hygiene. There is validity to the practice of vocalizing the "all-inclusive sound" of Om. When we say that the Emotional Body can benefit from SOUND, we mean all forms and media of sound, including speaking kind and comforting words to yourself, affirmations, singing spontaneously. The Emotional Body is where the experience of Time is processed, and music/sound is a processing of Time that helps to clean, heal, support, and care for the Emotional Body. For those who are Emotionally-Centered, it may be a regular event to submerge oneself into music or sound, because when one is using that Center as a means for navigating the entire life, it requires far more maintenance and healing, which is why Emotionally-Centered Personalities do tend to develop a far more intimate relationship to music than other Centerings. This is not to say that Moving or Intellectual Centering does not develop relationships to music and sound, but that it is a different relationship, and not one that is born of such necessity as those who are Emotionally Centered. We can explore those relationships in another session. So for the Emotional Bodies, a regular form of hygiene to bring to your every month, or more, is to listen to Chakra-based Toning, speaking kindly to yourself, singing to yourself, vocalizing tones that feel good, etc. And all with an awareness present. For the Intellectual Body, hygiene could do well to be in place as often as one bathes, if not more. The Hygiene of your Intellectual Body can most often be helped through the use of VISUALIZATIONS. There are two important levels of hygiene to consider in this case: One is that every fragment would do well to gift himself with a break from thinking, every day. This is not the same thing as being stupid. Every day, or at least for a few moments as one bathes or showers, the practice of visualizing "nothing" can truly bring some relief to the Intellect. By "nothing," we mean that the focus is on as much space as possible, an openness, such as floating, or flying, being in the sky, among clouds, etc. [Question] Doesn't that require intellectual processes to generate the visualization though? [MEntity] Of course it does. You cannot bathe your Physical Body without using your hands, either. The point is not to escape these Bodies, but to give them gifts, benefits, pleasure, freedom, support. The more one uses these bodies to benefit themselves, instead of being entirely weighted by the processes of living a life, the more those processes of living the life are met with brilliant energy, clarity, enthusiasm, and joy. In other words, your Bodies are not slaves to the lifetime. They are curious, sensitive, fragile, wondrous dimensions of you that are here to explore, not just to endure. The other level of hygiene for this body would come in the form of decording. This is something that can be practiced monthly, or even yearly. This is the practice of using your imagination and visualization to "see" your own back where energetic cords have attached themselves between you and those with whom you are not consciously or relevantly attached. Cording is the process of linking one's Chakras to another for the sake of bonding or binding. When bonding happens, it is usually a mutual experience and these cords are connected to the front of your body, chakras. When binding happens, it is not usually mutual, though allowed, and these cords are connected to the back of the body. All of these terms are not so literal, but they are accurate enough to the reality of those connections that we can use them here. Decording, then, is the use of the imagination to pull or wipe those cords off of your back. Of course, this is all symbolic, but it works when the visualization is applied. We will have to use another chat to elaborate upon the dynamics of Cording, but to begin this practice can often bring sudden freeing of energy and well-being, not only to the Intellect, but to the denser bodies, as well. It may also bring a surprise visit or contact from those who are binded to you in the back, because when those drop, the person who originated the bind senses this drop between you and may suddenly want to contact you, if he or she can. Another daily practice for Intellectual Hygiene would be to put at least one beautiful thing in your most inhabited space so that you can see it, and allow it to remind you to slow the mind, to take in the view, to allow room for your thoughts to come and go, rather than build up. As the Emotional Body processes Time, the Intellectual Body processes Space. As Music/sound is a means of processing Time, so is Visualization a means of processing Space. We must conclude here for today, but can continue this discussion in future exchanges, or in the forum thread where this transcript may be posted. We think that what we have shared today may be of help for bringing some personal sense of management over one's energy and health of his or her bodies, and to help bring a bit more "spirit" to one's Spiritual Body. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
  2. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: August 2009] [Question] In MFM, it was mentioned that Carl Jung was one of the “mavericks” of psychology in that he incorporated “mysticism” into psychology, which so few westerners given credence too. Of course there are many schools of psychological thought regarding counseling individuals. Psychoanalysis, cognitive behavioral theory, humanistic/existential theories are but a few examples. Given that psychology, at least in the west, is still so concerned with “measurable” scientific facts, how can one really tap into the ‘spiritual’ while still being “accepted” by the scientific community? Of course, assuming this is possible, or even desirable for that matter. I know of the work of Viktor Frankl, Ernesto Spinelli and the aforementioned Carl Jung; but it seems they are still largely disrespected by the psychological community. Can Michael provide insight into this topic? For example: who are the “psychological mavericks” of the 21st century who are (or may be in the near future) on the cusp of making real progress on the process of counseling the WHOLE person, spirit included, rather than merely some fragments (no pun intended) of the personality that most of the “scientific” theories like psychoanalysis and cognitive behavioral therapy seem to emphasize? I realize this is several questions in one, so it should be noted that I’m not looking for specific answers to each part as much as I am looking for concepts or psychologists to investigate regarding spiritual counseling or what is also called existential or phenomenological psychology, as I feel that counseling one while incorporating the spiritual can potentially do more lasting good than a lot of what passes as psychological intervention currently. Of course this is all speculation on my part, but was curious about Michael's input nonetheless. Sorry for the lengthy question; tis the curse of my scholary-ness I think. [Michael Entity] In terms of practice, there are many who incorporate “spirituality” into whatever method of Psychological Counseling they use, as long as that spirituality is translated into useful terms for the one being counseled. Others incorporate spirituality in a way that is simply an undercurrent within the terminology of the psychological method. For most who truly wish to help another, it is nearly impossible to avoid some form of spirituality, though it is useful to keep this to a minimum until the more tangible elements of the psyche have been explored. Though this channel is limited in terms of psychological theories and descriptions, we can say that Gestalt Psychology is close to “spiritual” within the limitations of the psychological field. We will add that as the Mature paradigm settles in, so would the expansion of concepts within the realm of Psychology. For now, if one were looking for counseling, we would suggest being less concerned with the method, and more concern with your resonance to the individual counselor. We would also add that this division of spirituality from counseling goes both ways, so to speak, in that if one were to go to a proclaimed “spiritual counselor,” the more tangible elements of the psyche might be ignored just as smugly as the less-tangible are ignored in Psychology. [Comment] definitely true, and there is certainly plenty of literature about the more tangible aspects. [Michael Entity] Those we might consider to be “mavericks” are publicly unknown to at this time, but if all moves forward as intended, would most likely rise to awareness within the next 20 years or so. We can also suggest looking back at our 7 Levels of Mind. You would see quite clearly where any psychological theory or method might fall, and this would give you a fair gauge of the higher levels of counseling or theories that might be available. The “mavericks” we see who may move psychology forward to include higher levels of Mind, if you will, would be those who move the field to embrace the Telepathic levels. Currently, it appears to us that most theories and practices remain at Transition levels and below, which do work for most.
  3. WILF2015 - 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.
