  1. February 13, 2005 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online — Open Floor [M Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. You may begin adding yourselves to the queue of questions and we will respond to you in that order. [sandt1222] Thank you. I still have a lot of questions of the basics. Tonight I would like to ask about the significance of the student groups who study together and the channel they choose. [M Entity] Channels through whom we work, (and channels who claim to work with us, but do not actually channel us) are all in some kind of Agreement with the students who are attracted to them. Some channels and teachers have Karma among their students, and the dynamic of their attraction to each other is based on that Karmic structure. Those who are attracted to Troy's channeling of us are in some way linked to the exploration of Perfect Imperfection; or put another way, “absolute comprehension, compassion, and acceptance of Self and Other.” For other channels, a student may be attracted to Empowerment themes, Relationship themes, Reality Dynamic themes, etc. It could then be said that each valid channel attracts three kinds of relationships: Monads, Agreements, and Karma. These Monads, Agreements, and Karma would be among the students as well as between channel and student. [See definitions at the bottom of this transcript for Monads, Agreements, and Karma.] [CearaQC] Greetings. Many books and websites speak about channeling one's higher self/oversoul. Do you have any advice and/or techniques to share with us on how this is accomplished? [M Entity] Yes. Through this channel, we have shared a great deal on that very concept. Troy will include those documents along with the transcript from this chat for your convenience. It is a collection of 3 sessions exploring that very topic and while we could briefly comment on it here, we believe a broader study of the topic as already explored would benefit you more appropriately. [NOTE FROM TROY: The series to which Michael refers was “Conscious Connection to Essence, Parts 1, 2, 3.” I am not really sure those transcripts will answer the question posed by Kara, so I am not sure why Michael suggested them. Unless they are seeking to emphasize a connection to Essence is the foundation for “channeling” your higher self, oversoul?] [BradburySE] I feel like I’m starting to notice the effect of this more and more lately in people around me and I'd like to see if my perceptions are valid. I would like to ask about the nature of sub-personalities. Are they something all of us have and carry within us; parts of our current personalities? Or are they negative influences that exist independent of a fragment? Are they parts of past-life personalities, or some astral fragment? [M Entity] Specifically-defined, a Sub-Personality is one facet of the Whole Personality that is usually unconsciously designated for specific management of specific feelings, situations, relationships, etc. Sub-Personalities are in communication with “each other,” which is the difference between a Whole Personality and a Personality challenged by Schizophrenia or Multiple Personality Disorder. Sub-Personalities are generated by the current Personality's experiences of the current lifetime. They are not independent of the Personality, as in “possession” of some sort, or some random “astral fragment.” To the extent that a Past Life is affecting the current Personality, then the Sub-Personalities MAY be a result of how the current Personality is managing that input, but this would still mean the Sub-Personalities are generated from within the structure of the current Personality, of course. Any “negative influences” or “astral fragments” affecting an individual's Personality behavior would not be considered in the same context as Sub-Personalities, but as rare and altogether different scenarios. Sub-Personalities can become nuisances and quite controlling of their particular psychological territory, but some can be quite beneficial and freeing of internal resources for challenges and growth. [BradburySE] Then someone in “whole personality” should surely remember what he or she said when a sub-personality was in control; is that right? [M Entity] You can identify when you are dealing with a Sub-Personality as you find yourself behaving in a seemingly automated manner within very specific circumstances. If a Sub-Personality is “cut off” from memory, it is no longer an issue of Sub-Personality, but of Multiple Personality Disorder, or Schizophrenia. Multiple Personality Disorder is the result of Sub-Personalities becoming disengaged from the Primary Personality Core, and each assumes it is the Core. Schizophrenia is the result of a specific Emotional element of the Personality being disengaged and assigned to a Sub-Personality to manage it. [Tibtyc] Greetings Michael. It seems to me that a lot of irritation, friction and strife between humans stems from differences in soul-age. Different ages have a hard time understanding, or just tolerating each other. Sometimes I think young and old should try to keep separate (as in the Indian caste system). Or at least that *I* should stay away from people whose valuations (probably soul age) are different from mine. But most of the time I mix & mingle, using lot of my energy to criticize, admonish, trying to correct what I see as “follies of youth,” in a collective, cultural sense. Maybe this is a mistake. What is a good attitude of one soul age to another, especially towards younger souls? Should one criticize? [M Entity] As with the progression of any maturation, the “older” will always be in the position of responsibility for understanding, teaching, redirecting, guiding, empathizing, and accepting the “younger.” So it is in Soul Age. The Older the soul, the more responsibility and capability there is within that soul to comprehend the previous soul ages. This does not mean one must condone or participate in the antics of the younger soul ages, but one can find peace, adaptability, and trust in those younger soul ages. In the same way that a parent must sometimes surrender to the power struggles of a teenager, so must the older soul surrender to the chaos of the Young and Baby Souls. Note that we use the word “surrender,” not “resign.” Surrender includes understanding and patience and trust, while resignation is the choice to abdicate all responsibility. We must also note that it can be quite tempting to stereotype the Soul Ages because of generalizations and media hype. It is assumed that only Baby and Young Souls, for instance, are responsible for the chaos in your world, but that couldn't be further from the truth. The apathy of an Old Soul does far more harm to your planet and people than any bomb from a Young Soul. The need to segregate one's consciousness from the rest of one's species as a means to uphold a false sense of spirituality or evolution is far more regressive than the zealousness of a Baby Soul. We make these statements as fact, not as judgments. As with every other aspect of life, a fragment may choose to do whatever he or she feels is most appropriate in all circumstances. In short, a “good attitude” toward younger souls is in the ability to see the innocence of their experimentation, chaos, and cruelty. Reaching into and resonating with the innocence of another Being is one of the most powerful means to transform the ripples of effect from those Beings' choices in your world. [Tibtyc] Should i take the part about “segregation” as referring to me? [M Entity] We do not specifically refer to you, though we are responding to the question as you stated it in terms of segregation based on a caste system. [flimflamdamn] So trying to connect with that innocence in another can help? [M Entity] Yes, Leela. That is what we said, but more specifically, we stated that it would “transform the effects on your world,” as in, “your personal experience” of the world. Changing your experience of the world is one of the most powerful means of creating your world in a “better way.” [Tibtyc] My understanding is that caste originally had to do with Age. [Annsge] (Think “Caste” had more to do with Essence Role) [M Entity] The caste system was originated and propagated only as a means of socio-political control, not as an extension of any mystical or spiritually-relevant systems; regardless of how that system can retrospectively be interpreted. [flimflamdamn] I know that I almost always ask about current events, so I'm sorry if this question is in any way redundant. But here goes: [M Entity] We do not require qualification of your questions, nor an apology. But you know this. [flimflamdamn] The government of my country seems to be more and more dangerous, both domestically and abroad. And so many of my fellow Americans seem to be asleep, self-obsessed, and ignorant of the rest of the world, just buying the whole program that's being sold to them. I and many people I know feel that our spirits have been broken, that we no longer live in a democracy, and we are frightened of our environmental and political future, not just here but all over the world. Right now, everything seems so status-quo, and the most destructive, selfish people seem to be getting their way in everything — I sense a future of diminished choice and degraded lives. What are the strongest probabilities this year, in this respect, and/or in terms of global or national events that affect us all? I should say I FEAR a future of diminished choice. [M Entity] In terms of “diminished choice,” we are assuming you refer to the privileged level of choices afforded the American lifestyle? [flimflamdamn] no…more like, the choice to control one's reproduction, the choice to live in a healthy environment, the choice to be part of a peaceful rather than war and fear-driven nation; not the choice to drive a Hummer or live in a McMansion; the choice to send one's kids to school, to be able to live rather than survive – that is what I refer to. [M Entity] The choice to “control one's reproduction, live in a healthy environment, and to be part of a peaceful nation” are still quite local to the United States' established privileges. [flimflamdamn] well then, perhaps that is what I am asking about. [upstaate] unfair distribution of the nations wealth? [flimflamdamn] Hard-fought freedoms [M Entity] If that is the case, we see no specific blows in the lack of choice afforded the United States' people in the year ahead. We suggest that the dynamic of division within the United States is not one-sided. The chief features of the older souls are as strong a contributor to the divisions and turbulence and fear as any younger soul. Consider the structure of a school: Physical Age would determine the levels of responsibility afforded the different groups of people participating in that school. Physical Age would determine the levels of (or circles of) choice allowed the different groups of people participating in that school. Physical Age would determine the available wisdom accessible to the different groups of people participating in that school. Consider that the “adults” are the Older souls and that they have resigned to levels of simple criticism, superiority, and other methods of huffing in disgust at the children. The population of children (younger souls), of course, outnumbers the population of the adults (older souls), so it is valid that there is very little that can be done to herd the mass of children into order by the adult standards. [flimflamdamn] but lately the children seem to be running things…and they seem bent on destruction. [M Entity] There are only two methods that an older soul can regain a sense of peace in that environment: through RESTRICTIONS or through FREEDOMS. [Tibtyc] Adults stand aside and just watch… [M Entity] Restrictions would require a great deal of energy that is usually not interesting to an older soul to expend. However, if that choice were to be made, it would mean a grand implementation of order to remove the ability of the young to make their own choices. [flimflamdamn] sounds disagreeable [M Entity] In fact, most literal adults use this method to train and grow literal children. The effects of that restriction, of course, are only to directly benefit one group of people, the adults (or older souls). The other choice is through the method of FREEDOMS. This means that the older souls, or adults, OFFER alternatives, educate those who are interested, and create paths that can help funnel the energy of the younger. [freyaisissuz] sounds like the Super Nanny's [Tibtyc] Choice, and not Laws… [M Entity] This then gives peace to the adults because now the experience of the personal world can begin to be filled with accomplishment, meaning, and support for the choice toward peace. This also diminishes the destructive effects of the younger souls because it only takes one fragment out of 1,000 fragments to change the minds, hearts, and actions of that 1,000. [upstaate] can you give us examples of the RESTRICTIONS? [M Entity] Examples of Restrictions might be: Lockdowns; Public Humiliation; Broad Judgments and Punishments; Removal of Services; Apathy; Callousness; Resignation; Force. Of course, the globe and life are not as simple as a school, but we use that analogy as a means of simplifying. [flimflamdamn] How does this apply to the very real dangers of what our leaders are doing, secretly and explicitly? [M Entity] Leela, this applies in a very real way. Rather than brooding about and condemning the children of your world, much can be done to funnel that energy into creating choices and paths for those who CAN support your vision of a peaceful world. The world is currently in no better or worse position environmentally, politically, socially, or politically than 10,000 years ago or before. There are simply more people, more choices, and more exposure. There is a tendency for the older soul to generate the worst visions of reality when there is an overwhelming diet of exposure to tragedies in the world. Those tragedies will exist with or without your consent and approval. We do not suggest one disengage from the reality of tragedies in your world, but we do suggest that you are not the parents of the world and that the children will eventually learn. You did. [flimflamdamn] thank you. This does help. I still fear the children who have nukes…but this does help. [M Entity] The horrors that each of you imposed on the freedoms of other fragments across your lifetimes are as much a part of this world as the current horrors being explored among other souls. Use your energy and your ability to choose a way to input into the world what you most want from it. Simply condemning the world to tragedy and impending loss is more telling of how you perceive your own life than as an accurate perception of your shared world. Leela, people do not “have to learn through horror.” People CHOOSE to learn through horror. It is quite popular. As soul ages become more condensed and exponentially accelerating in growth, so do the apparent horrors seem to match, as this is a very quick way to learn. Consider the deflection of a child’s hand from fire through your verbal restriction and intervention. Nothing was learned except that the adult is afraid of the orange light. A child who touches the flame will rarely, if ever, intentionally touch a flame again. [kittlekats41] My question is a follow up to Shannon's: are there a ‘usual’ or ‘reasonable’ number of sub-personalities each of us assume in a life, or does this vary based on soul age, levels and Overleaves too much to give an average? [M Entity] Most fragments generate at least 12 Sub-Personalities as an internal kind of support group. There would then be an internal facet who deals with Love, Knowledge, Compassion, Humor, Discipline, Anchor, Healer, Muse, Enlightenment, Child, Beauty, and Mentor. Each is actually assigned a name and a gender, internally and unconsciously. As a fragment begins to rely on their EXTERNAL Support Group, so does the sense of Wholeness and levels of consciousness/awareness begin cohesion. We are describing the classic picture of most Personality’s system of Sub-Personalities, but this is by no means a rule. We will conclude with the final question. [Annsge] Are there times when the sub-personality is perceived as negative by the Personality? If so, what can be done about it? [M Entity] A Sub-Personality is considered “negative” if the Core Personality is rendered helpless to the fearful choices and patterns of that Sub-Personality. The Core Personality will ALWAYS be able to override the Sub-Personality, but a “negative” Sub-Personality can be quite daunting and rooted. [Annsge] Is the Chief Feature a factor in this? [M Entity] Yes, Ann, the Chief Feature (when fear and division are involved) is always involved. Some means by which the Core Personality can override the patterns, fears, and momentum of a negative Sub-Personality are: ASKING FOR HELP — one should never underestimate the ability of an external resource to help one through difficulties. NAMING and GUIDING — one can consciously name the Sub-Personality and humorously begin to see how it has come to be in control, then use internal compassion as a means to educate that facet of self toward new ways of choosing. CORE CONSCIOUSNESS — this would be a deliberate, yet gentle, awareness of what AREAS of the life tend to be ruled by a Sub-Personality’s pattern and consciously examining those contexts, rather than waiting until the Sub-Personality has already risen to control. As a final note, we wish to clarify that these Sub-Personalities are NOT separate from you, nor are they “to blame” for your poor behavior. They are simply FACETS of you, in the same way that your Hand and Foot are still your Body. The more coordination and communication among your Body Parts, the more gracefully you live. The more coordination and communication among your Personality Facets, the more gracefully you live. We will conclude here. Goodnight to each of you. Definitions: Monad: A single unit of experience comprised of two polarized parts that eventually create inherent lessons and resolutions. There are internal and external Monads. Agreement: A casual commitment to share a specific experience usually made on a non-physical level of communication. Karma: The attempt to resolve a previous interference of someone’s choices that resulted in some kind of intensity.
  2. OMW - May 7, 2011 - You and Your Subpersonalities (5 hour session) Channel: Troy Tolley MEntity: Hello to each of you. We are here now. We can begin with the topic requested. We understand the topic to be that of Subpersonalities. This is a subject that is more relevant than may seem to be, at first, because our entire Overleaf Personality System is actually designed for helping one understand the PARTS that are the WHOLE that is greater than the sum of those parts. Though most of you experience yourself as a consistent "I," "you" are actually a collection of fragments of Personality that moves and grows and morphs and rises and falls throughout the lifetime. In the same way that your Essence experiences a wholeness that is greater than the sum of its collection of Personalities throughout time, so does a single Personality experience itself as a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts, which are Subpersonalities. A Subpersonality is an aspect of the self with its own self-image, going so far as to even have its own posture, gestures, behaviors, feelings, etc. Subpersonalities are a part of every Personality. There is no Personality that is a single entity. In our earliest communications, you may find that we refer to each of you as having "fragments," as well as referring to each of you as a fragment, yourself. This is because there is a paradox at work in this universe: that every ONE is MANY. There is nothing that is a single, whole, pure "oneness," yet every fragment is a part of a singular oneness. There are several ways one can visualize this, even from within your most-dense and separated Physical Plane dimensions: one way is through the fact that every solid object in your universe that your body can bump into is, in fact, a collection of particles that spring into a shape that you see/experience as whole, solid, one. And even those particles can be "broken down" into parts. From where we are, we cannot see a conclusion to the truth that there is a ONENESS of which we are all a part, nor can we see a conclusion to the MANY-ness that makes up that Oneness, and we cannot see that conclusion in either direction, so to speak. In other words, we know that there is an even greater oneness beyond even what we consider TAO, and we know that there is more many-ness beyond the subatomic particles, etc. At this point in our experience and knowledge, we do not know if there is an "end" to that in either direction, but we suspect that there is not. As the soul ages, this begins to be suspected, as well, at least in terms relative to the conceptual universe. The sense of self becomes aware that it is comprised of parts, and then that sense of self is aware that it is a part of a greater consciousness that is humanity, and so on. In various systems, these parts are described. Such as in our Overleaves, and in that which is Astrology, or even in Archetypes. Depending on Agreements, each of you will eventually find the teaching and the teachers that will help to bring an awareness of these parts, and then to bring about a synthesis of those parts. That process of synthesis within a lifetime for the Personality is a precursor to the gathering of entity members that will be the synthesis of that entity. Every Essence will have, at least, one lifetime that completes that synthesis, holding within its consciousness the awareness of parts that have become the whole that is greater than those parts. This can happen at any point, with any Personality, but this happens in different ways for different Soul Ages. Every Soul Age will have this experience of synthesis relative to its degree of consciousness, but it is within the Old Soul Age that this synthesis is experienced on a massive scale that goes even beyond the Personality. There is not a particular Level within the Soul Age that this happens, but once it happens, it becomes a rather "addictive" aim for any subsequent Personality. We qualify the term "addictive" because that is not quite an accurate term; it would be more like an uber-challenge or task as an undercurrent for every subsequent life. In our work with Troy, we shared the details of this for every Essence Role in what was titled "The Great Lesson," if you wish to explore that further in the context of this synthesis "addiction." [See Michael Speaks: Conscious Connection to Essence (3 of 3).] To understand that you are comprised of Subpersonalities that make up your sense of self is a first step toward synthesis. Because of the complexity of this infrastructure, we will approach it from several directions today that may shed light on this concept from different angles so that you have a choice in how to go about your personal path toward wholeness. First, we will share insight from within our own teaching, and then expand to other familiar systems that are not in conflict with our own. To continue defining and elaborating on the concept of Subpersonality, we will say that every Subpersonality is born from WANTS and NEEDS. Every Subpersonality is a grown from a WANT/NEED and then a RESOLUTION of those Wants/Needs. Depending on the abundance of or lack of resources for that Want or Need, certain Subpersonalities may become more obvious than others. Every Personality has a minimum of 3 Subpersonalities and most have about 12, but there is no limit. In most cases, these 12 will rotate to the "surface" in groups of 3, depending on the state of the life. Regardless of the number of Subpersonalities, there can only ever be 9 SEEDS that might be at the core of a Subpersonality constellation. In other words, for example, 1 Seed can have 3 variations of Subpersonality. These "Seeds" are actually NEEDS/WANTS described by "The Nine Needs." SECURITY, ADVENTURE, FREEDOM, EXPRESSION, POWER, EXCHANGE, ACCEPTANCE, COMMUNION, and EXPANSION. So, for example, the Seed of Security could bring about a Subpersonality that develops around Blind Faith as a form of Security, as well as a Subpersonality that develops around False Hope as a form of Security, and one that develops around Tradition as a form of Security. Every NEED/WANT must be fulfilled within a lifetime to some degree, and the process of fulfilling those Needs/Wants is done through the development of Subpersonalities. Depending on the degree of consciousness a Personality develops for dispersion among Subpersonalities is the degree to which a Need/Want is fulfilled. We will define consciousness here as: an understanding of consequences. Or more accurately: a comprehension of consequences as a result of actions (or choices). The Older the soul, the more likely the higher degree of consciousness of the Personality, but that is no guarantee, of course. Wants/Needs can be described in many ways, and this is how Subpersonalities are born in so many ways, depending on how one understands his or her Wants/Needs. Regardless of how one understand his or her Wants/Needs, they will ALWAYS go back to one of the 9 Seeds/Needs. For instance, if a person feels lonely, and craves the intimate touch of someone who loves him or her, then a Subpersonality may develop around this Want/Need, but at its core will be the Seed of, maybe, Security, or Acceptance, for instance. For purposes of clarity during this discussion, we will use the term SEED for these usual "9 needs" terms, so as to keep the confusion minimal, even though they are all rather interchangeable terms. Every SEED, then, has a dimension of WANT, NEED, and RESOLUTION. Those three dimensions will always exist for every Seed. A person may describe something as a WANT, but there will always be a Need attached, and then the means for resolution of them. A person may describe something as a Need, but there will always be a Want attached, and then the means for resolution. We will differentiate the terms here by stating that a WANT is a creative and conscious path for fulfilling a NEED. NEEDS will ALWAYS be fulfilled to some degree, but to the degree that this is consciously fulfilled is the degree to which one is using Choice. So our first practice for you to use in helping you understand your Subpersonalities, and what might exist within you, would be to use this system of reflection. We will delineate a means for doing this now, and then discuss this with you. What you would want to do is look at this delineation of potential Subpersonality constellations that can grow from these 9 Seeds. Start with 1 to 3 of these Seeds/Needs that stand out to you as prominent in your life, either currently or overall, and then look to one of those degrees of fulfillment that is a part of each Seed/Need, and see where in that spectrum of fulfillment a Subpersonality may be existing/functioning for you. THE 9 POTENTIAL SEEDS of SUBPERSONALITIES, and the degrees of conscious function for each: SEED OF SECURITY: Functioning/Fulfilled through Blind Faith, False Hope, Tradition, Theories, Reliable Sources, Experience/Intuition, Tao (absolute trust); SEED OF ADVENTURE: Functioning/Fulfilled through Drama, Addictions, Physical Stimulation, Mental Stimulation, Revelations, Essence Contact, Enlightenment (full implementation of personal philosophies); SEED OF FREEDOM: Functioning/Fulfilled through Irresponsibility, Aimlessness, Physical Liberation, Mental Liberation, Emotional Liberation, Conscious Choice, Peace (absolute awareness of full potential); SEED OF EXPANSION: Functioning/Fulfilled through Illness/Cancers, Accumulation/Hoarding, Sprawling, Realizations, Inspirations, Transformations, Prosperity (absolute gratitude); SEED OF POWER: Functioning/Fulfilled through Destruction, Oppression, Control, Guidance, Confidence, Ethics, Compassion; SEED OF EXPRESSION: Functioning/Fulfilled through Insanity/Total Delusion, Recklessness, Infamy, Projects, Entertainment, Art, Renaissance (rebirth); SEED OF ACCEPTANCE: Functioning/Fulfilled through Ingratiation, Subservience, Tolerance, Conditions/Conditional Love, Causal Love, Unconditional Love, Agape (true affection); SEED OF COMMUNION: Functioning/Fulfilled through Desperation, Neediness, Fraternizing, Socializing, Mutuality, Intimacy, Unity (spiritual resonance); SEED OF EXCHANGE: Functioning/Fulfilled through Slander/War, Gossip, Small Talk/Banter, Trade/Barter, Mutual Profit/gain, Understanding, Comprehension (true teaching/learning). First: which ONE to THREE of these Seeds could be said to be prominent demands (needs/wants) in your life, and to what degree within that/those seed/s do you feel you function/fulfill? An easy way to assess this is to look at the list of Seeds/Needs and fill in the statement: "I know I could not live without _______" For most of you, at least one of these would stand out. For instance, some of you would "die" if you did not have Exchange in your life on some level. The Need for Exchange is a driving force that MUST be actively fulfilled to some degree, and this would be a Seed for one of your more obvious Subpersonalities. [Geraldine] Michael -- It appears that each function moves from negative pole to positive pole in steps -- so, each of these subpersonalities would be similarly defined? MEntity: That would be correct, and those "poles" would be degrees ranging between unconscious to conscious. EVERY NEED will be fulfilled, even if unconsciously in some way. As you can see, the more conscious the fulfillment, the more active and conscious one must be in the process. And by definition, this would mean comprehending the consequences of the path to fulfilling that Need. We now ask for volunteers to share what may have come up for him or her in reading these, or ask your questions that may be required for clarification so that you may assess yourself. [Geraldine] and one can choose more than one term in a Seed, right? (i.e., have more than one subpersonality) MEntity: Yes, Geraldine. There may be a Subpersonality that has been born from the Seed of Exchange, and one functions on the level for managing Small Talk, while another manages Mutual Gain. [Geraldine] SEED OF EXPANSION: Illness/Cancers, Accumulation/Hoarding [Geraldine] OK I'll start as I have ongoing physical health issues that really do define me (my mobility) -- but I would have thought Accumulation to be a security issue [EricM] SECURITY: False Hope, Reliable Sources, Experience/Intuition [Diane_H] Security: Reliable Sources, Experience/Intuition [EricM] FREEDOM: Aimlessness [Diane_H] also Theories [AnnH] Acceptance: subservience, tolerance, condit/uncon love [Geraldine] SEED OF EXCHANGE: Gossip, Small Talk/Banter, Understanding; but, I was able to find 1 or more per seed, too MEntity: Geraldine, Security does not require MORE, so Accumulation, while possibly being tied to "things" that bring Security, is about the emphasis on MORE. [Geraldine] ok -- then I have that under control as I severely limit the urge to hoard [AnnH] What is the definition of causal love? MEntity: Yes, Geraldine, we think that most who are in this group will be able to find, at least, 12 Subpersonalities. Causal Love is the comprehension of the effects of Love, and the intention behind those effects. It could also be understood, then, as Intentional Love. In other words, it is the practice of loving, even if that loving includes not loving - knowing that loving is inclusive even of the struggle to love. [Jill] They all stand out [AnnH] Michael, are the SEEDS related to the degrees of fulfillment as discussed in Wholeness of Souls course? [DavidB] Power: Control and Compassion. Though I frankly see something of myself in most of the seeds. MEntity: A scenario might be in someone's intention to "love" someone so as to help that person, to heal that person, to always "be there" for him or her, to set an example for what loving looks like and feels like, and so on. It may not be unconditional, because it is usually contextual. [AnnH] yes, that makes sense [Geraldine] OK -- so, it can be for just one person, not the world in general [DavidB] also Acceptance: Conditional Love [AnnH] but causal is different. [AnnH] causal is modeling love for a particular person. MEntity: Geraldine, it can be either. [Geraldine] It's part of the negative to positive pole slide -- contracted to expanded [AnnH] that makes sense! [Geraldine] all of these terms are MEntity: Ann, Causal Love can be a modeling of love for a particular person, but more importantly it is the Intention that differentiates this kind of Love from another. [Jill] I'd like to know how many I have [Martha] Adventure: Essence Contact, Revelation, Enlightenment MEntity: To go back to our example: to love someone by "always being there," is a Causal form of Love, but this will not mean you always Love this person outside of your intention to express that Love by "being there." [Martha] and Expression: art, renaissance [AnnH] expression: entertainment, art [EricM] ah, so then for me Acceptance: subservience and causal love [DavidB] I seem to slide back and forth on the Freedom spectrum. looks like I have more than one sub there. ? [Martha] and expression: entertainment [AnnH] Freedom: Emotional Liberation (or rather I struggle with it) [EricM] Freedom: Aimlessness [Martha] exchange: small talk, understanding, comprehension [ClaireC] Adventure, mental stimulation [Martha] community: socializing, mutuality, intimacy [DavidB] hehe. I guess we're complicated, to put it nicely. Lol [Maureen] I have one over-riding one right now : SEED OF EXCHANGE: Mutual Profit/gain, Understanding, Comprehension (true teaching/learning). MEntity: TO CONTINUE.... NEXT: Look at this first assessment (which may change with further understanding), and circle (figuratively or literally) only those that are most-obvious and without question. You may have decided on a few, but there should be at least one that is without question. Keep in mind that you WILL find many among these descriptions, and all of you here appear to have, at least, 12 Subpersonalities, and some of you have many more. What you would want to do for the sake of this workshop is to determine just one to start with, so that the next steps can be better understood, and then you may go back and work with more. We see several examples being posted, so we will ask for one more listing, for the sake of clarity in the next steps: Pick ONE SEED, and ONE DEGREE OF FUNCTIONING that seems to stand out. List that now. [EricM] Freedom: Aimlessness [Geraldine] Exchange - comprehension [Maureen] SEED OF EXCHANGE: Comprehension (true teaching/learning). [Martha] expression: art [DavidB] SEED OF POWER: Control [ClaireC] Seed of Adventure: Mental Stimulation [Jill] Seed of Security: False Hope [AnnH] Security: Theories [Diane_H] Security: Reliable Sources MEntity: NEXT: NAME this Subpersonality. This name may come suddenly, because it has always been there, or it may come creatively. [Geraldine] Sparkette [AnnH] Bubblehead MEntity: In naming this Subpersonality, there are two most-effective ways of doing so: affectionate names or comical names, or a combination. [DavidB] Controlling Craig? ? [Jill] Pauline MEntity: Even if your comical or affectionate name is "normal," but triggers that context, such as "Pauline." [Geraldine] as in "perils of. . ." [EricM] jack MEntity: Or "Craig," with the playful descriptor. [Maureen] Apple of my Eye [Diane_H] I want to call mine "Mom". lol [ClaireC] Daring Diva MEntity: NEXT: Once you have settled upon a name, GIVE IT LIFE. What we mean by this is: this Subpersonality exists, whether you are conscious of it, or not. It WILL function/fulfill its Seed Need for "you" in some way, whether you like it, or not. [AnnH] Actually, mine does not like the name Bubble Head, she'd rather be Serious Sally [Martha] Bernadette [Geraldine] Then, I guess you'd better rename her, Ann [AnnH] She's Serious Sally [AnnH] David, I just sort of imagine her in my mind MEntity: By "Giving It Life," you will have moved through the second stage of synthesis for yourself on your path to wholeness, and stepped into the third stage: Acceptance, and Cooperation, respectively. Giving these Subpersonalities "Life" means using your Imagination; using your creativity, which inherently draws from many parts of you, contributing to the process of synthesis. [Geraldine] Sparkette is my spark of brilliant intuition, a fragment of a fragment, a piece off the ole block, Sparky (Essence). [DavidB] I just spoke to that aspect of myself that feels the need to control others and situations and informed it that I acknowledged its existence and was naming it Craig for now. [EricM] Jack is laughing, since his name came from "jack of all trades, jack sparrow" etc MEntity: The 5 Stages toward Synthesis are: Awareness, Acceptance, Cooperation, Integration, and Synthesis, itself. The key for most of you here would be in the Cooperation Stage. The Awareness and Acceptance part are rather "easy," but it is in the Cooperation that the "fun part" begins. So, NEXT: To Cooperate means that when this Subpersonality appears, "you" become aware of this, and develop a means for communicating, understanding, and then implementing. Communication with this Subpersonality can be as playful and as creative as you make it, as long as this is followed by Understanding. By this we mean that the Communication bears meaning. It is not simply to make light of the Needs/Wants of this part of you, but to help him or her, because he or she ONLY EXISTS FOR YOU. As YOU only exist for ESSENCE, so do your Subpersonalities only exist for YOU. As we said, these Subpersonalities are born from Need/Want. You HAVE Subpersonalities, but you are NOT the Subpersonalities. Your Essence HAS Personalities, but is NOT the Personalities. This may seem paradoxical, because it is, but with a little creative thinking, this is not perplexing. When we say that the "whole is greater than the sum of its parts," it is a reference to this paradox of oneness vs many, and how the many actually generate what is this oneness. An easy analogy might be: To say that a Garden is one of the single flowers within that Garden would be inaccurate, but the Garden could not exist without the many single flowers. And so it is that "You," as a Personality, are the Garden that is the many flowers that are your Subpersonalities, and equally so is your Essence is the Garden of every bloom that is a Personality in its collection of incarnations. We think the Garden metaphor is appropriate, because "you" are the Gardener, and the tending to those flowers/subpersonalities in more and more conscious ways is what evolves you. Using the 9 Seeds, you can explore yourself in a way that might reveal to you these various ways in which Subpersonalities run things for you, and then you can communicate with these, develop an understanding, and then implement that understanding through choices and decisions. Keep in mind: The lesser the degree of fulfillment for a Seed, the more it is only a NEED, which means it will be fulfilled by any means possible, even to its own demise. The higher the degree of fulfillment for a Seed, the more it is a WANT, which generates creative and conscious paths to the fulfillment. This is because the greater the degree of consciousness, the greater the capacity for comprehending consequences of Choice. This means, if your Subpersonality is further down in the degrees of fulfillment, the more likely "you" will have to bring patience, kindness, nurturing, etc., to your Cooperation with that Subpersonality. The further down the degree of fulfillment, the more likely that Subpersonality is locked into a certain time frame, or age range, from "your" past. Part of your "Cooperation" then would be in helping to bring that Subpersonality up to date, up to speed, and to educate it, enlighten it, show it that there are other ways. [DavidB] so different subpersonalities can be at different levels of fulfillment with the same seed, but all of them can evolve to the seed's highest level of fulfillment? MEntity: We will answer your question in a moment, David. Our next bit of information may help answer that on its own. It is never helpful to reject these parts of you that behave in ways that you know are not so enlightened or empowered or appropriate. The further down in the degree of fulfillment, the more distinct and dominant the Subpersonality may be, especially within the contexts of fulfillment for that Seed. The further up in the degree of fulfillment, the more ethereal, and amorphous that Subpersonality may be, with the fulfillment of that Seed being almost an inherent foundation for the life. The further down in the degree of fulfillment, the more likely there are distinct and separate Subpersonalities functioning on different levels for that Seed. The further up in the degree of fulfillment (5 and above), the more likely there is no distinction for different levels, but a more slippery or wavering fulfillment of various degrees within two or three degrees. The 7th Degree of fulfillment is a product of synthesis in itself, and all Subpersonalities for that Seed that have ever existed now "collapse" into a single entity, so that this Seed now would either have only one representative, or so integrate with "you," that there is no sense of identity there. [AnnH] Can there be different levels of fulfillment in different situations? In other words, can I, for example, have a subpersonality who experiences conscious choice and another who experiences mental liberation, given the situation? MEntity: Ann, yes. As long as there is no 7th Degree of fulfillment for that Seed, then various Degrees could be fulfilled in various contexts. But once the 7th Degree is reached, it "spreads" into every scenario. Communicating with, Understanding, and then Implementing Understanding for any Subpersonality brings a Seed closer to True Fulfillment/Function. Cooperation can come in many forms, but we can say that if your Subpersonality appears to be from 3 Degrees or below for a Seed, then HEALING is necessary as a form of Cooperation. Cooperation can come in many forms, but we can say that if your Subpersonality appears to be from 5 degrees or above for a Seed, then CREATIVITY is the foundation for your Cooperation. Healing may include Creativity, and Creativity may include Healing, but using those differentiating terms can help your focus of Cooperation. The 4th could use either. We can conclude here, or take questions based on what we have shared, or we can continue into how your Natal Chart in Astrology may give you clues for even greater understanding of your Subpersonalities. [Geraldine] Since there are many parallels where we exist, I assume these personalities also have both the existing subpersonalities that they had at time of divergence, but also ones created subsequently. When a convergence happens and brings in these other subpersonalities, what problems can this cause? MEntity: Subpersonalities are managed in much the same way that Personalities are managed when it comes to Merging and Diverging: the more harmonious move together, and the more discordant generate divergences. If the Personality of one Parallel has a multitude of Subpersonalities that are dominant and in conflict with another Parallel's Subpersonalities, a merging will not happen. If there are minimal differences, then those conflicting Subpersonalities either become a more complex dimension of the Personality, or one of them "gives," so to speak. For example, if 10 of the 11 Subpersonalities of two Parallels are similar enough, then the 1 Subpersonality (from each Parallel) would go one of three routes: move the count of Subpersonalities to 12; merge into each other as a more complex version; or one would absorb the other. Since Subpersonalities rise and fall throughout a lifetime, however this merging would happen is not a very relevant or obvious factor in a parallel merging. [Maureen] Michael – this is uncanny! You have described CBE (Core Belief Engineering - a brilliant psychotherapy process I have worked with) – to a ‘T’ right down to the way you would ‘talk to’ or ‘treat’ a Part, all the steps, the synthesis, etc. Is this a coincidence or is there some ‘collusion’ that goes on at your mid-causal ‘strategy sessions’ ? MEntity: What we have described can be described in many ways by many teachers, and this is less about coincidence and collusion than it is about the nature of truth. Subpersonalities exist as a matrix for Personality, and so it goes that this would be realized in many different ways by many different Personalities at some point, even if called by as many different phrases and titles. No teacher's teaching is ever truly original, but a conglomeration of integrated experiences that were gained from their own learning and teachers. Astrology and your Subpersonalities: We are not Astrologers, and we do not pretend that Astrology can easily be superimposed over our Overleaf System or our Teaching, but as mentioned before: the nature of truth is that it can be found to be consistent from many angles. Because Subpersonalities can be rather evasive in working with, we described the 9 Seeds as a map for helping you to find them within you, but your Natal Chart also holds fairly specific, concrete, and valid clues as to how and where your Subpersonalities came into existence, and this does tie a bit into our own system of Overleaves and terms. First, your Subpersonalities are of biological origins. They may seem to be figments of your imagination, or parts of the psyche, but they spring from the Physical. And this makes sense, as "you" also spring from the Physical, or biological. Personality is a biological, or genetic, construct at its base. Consciousness RISES from this base matrix within a lifetime, and then the "you" that you carry forward from the life is what "you" recognize as "you." Before "you" recognize yourself as "you," you are only ever a SEED. We used the term "seed" earlier for describing the 9 Needs/Wants/Seeds that generate Subpersonalities from within the Personality; Now we briefly use this same term to describe the biology that gives birth to the consciousness that becomes "you." You may think "you" exist before you are born, but that is not the case. Your Essence exists. And your Essence's idea for "you" exists. But "you" create YOU. And that is how Essence evolves. In the same way that your Subpersonalities evolve You. Wheels within wheels. Part of how your Essence creates you is by using Astrology. The planetary arrangements at the time of your conception and the time of your birth, both, play tremendous factors in what is potential within your Personality. Most of the influences at the time of conception are focused on the development of the Body, while the influences at the time of birth are focused on the Personality. In looking at your Natal Chart, the first three Houses are what would be described as the First Quadrant; the next three would be the Second; the next three, the Third, and 10, ll, and 12 are the Fourth. If one were to think of the Natal Chart as the garden we described earlier, the Planets "sprinkled" among this are the Seeds at birth. Those Planets in the First Quadrant, if any, would be those that develop almost immediately and build as a kind of core for the lifetime. These usually indicate the Subpersonalities that will require the most healing, often carried over by themes from other lifetimes, or Karma, etc., and so the life begins building those, first. Those Planets in the Second Quadrant might describe the Subpersonalities that would spring to life after after the 2nd Internal Monad and into the 3rd, and would be most obvious in realms of relationships, family, contributions, etc. Those Planets in the Third Quadrant might describe those Subpersonalities that spring to life during the 4th Internal Monad, and would show up most obviously in your chosen relationships, and your sense of identity as it relates to "the world." Where the Second Quadrant relates to default relationships (family, etc), the Third relates to chosen relationships, which may include family, but is often friendships, long-term matedness, partnerships, etc. The Third also includes the sense of relationship within, or to the self. And the Fourth Quadrant would house Planets that represent the Subpersonalities that might spring to life in the 5th Internal Monad, or in the sense of place in the cosmos, humanity, the earth, etc. Any Planets below the horizon, or in Houses 1-6, would be those representing more unconscious or default Subpersonalities that either eventually dominate, or evolve, and these often start at the lower end of the degrees of fulfillment (1 to 4). Any Planets above the horizon, or in Houses 7 - 12, would be those representing more obvious, or conscious Subpersonalities that may behave almost seamlessly with "you," fulfilling degrees of 5 or higher for any relevant Need/Want/Seed. This might become obvious when looking at the symbolism, as those Houses below the horizon describe contexts that are usually already in momentum before consciousness has a chance to build, and therefore must build up from within those contexts. To the degree that your Planets are below the Horizon is the degree to which your Essence probably intended very specific plans for "you." Many who are in a 6th Level will find a bulk of Planets below the Horizon, for instance. With some creativity, some of you may find correlation between the known Planets, their symbolism, and the 9 Seeds we already described, but if you cannot find correlation, that is to be expected. These are different ways of mapping, so they may not correlate easily. Before we describe the Planets as they symbolize the influences that become your Subpersonalities that become "you," we will ask now if there are any questions about what we have shared so far. [DavidB] What could be said of Essence's plan for someone with a majority of planets above the horizon? For example, 9 of my 10 are. I'm asking generally, of course. MEntity: If the bulk of your Planets are above the Horizon, it may indicate the degree to which the overall life was "unplanned" to any degree of detail, which means those with the bulk above horizon might often feel that the life is either a meandering and wandering, or with a momentum and no one really driving. However, to the degree that a Quadrant is dense with planets is the degree to which that area of the life might then "kick in" the "plans" that may have been most-intended. [Martha] so loaded 3rd quad hits during 4th IM MEntity: If a Quadrant is completely free of any Planets, that Quadrant is often as a major emphasis for the life as a major context, free from biases and influences and Subpersonalities. [DavidB] Do you have any particular house system in mind to divide 1st quadrant from 2nd and 3rd from 4th? MEntity: We know there are various House Systems, so we suggest experimenting and using the one that makes sense to you, as they are all symbolic, and what resonates with you is yours. For instance, our Channel, Troy, has Houses 10 through 12 free, which allows us to come through to a degree that is free from most anything "Troy," as he is focused elsewhere in his life. [Maureen] So if someone has a 'loaded' 12th house - their 'real' work might 'kick in' during the 5th IM? MEntity: Maureen, that would be one way that it shows up, but it may also be said that it would "kick in" within the context of contributions to humanity or the bigger picture, and does not require the passage of the 5th Internal Monad. Though, often, those with a density in 4th Quadrant do find the clarity and sense of purpose during or after the 5th Internal Monad. [AnnH] If I have houses 2-5 free, what would that mean? MEntity: Again, when a Quadrant is empty, it usually becomes a non-charged, but major underlying theme throughout everything. Biases and Subpersonalities will not affect that Quadrant. [Maureen] My first Quadrate could be considered 'empty' - how would that show up? MEntity:In your case, Maureen, it might be said that the perception of the inner self, the core of a person, their wounds, their past, their needs for healing, etc., can be seen as crystal clear to you. You just "know." [Geraldine] My 3rd and 4th are nearly empty -- it's like I should have died long ago MEntity: The density or lack of Planets in a Quadrant has no bearing on how long the life will be or should be. They are contexts. And while some activations occur in the context of linear progression, activations also occur in the contexts of categories/relationships. [EricM] So then a packed first quadrant would then suggest many subpersonalities dealing with the core or the self, or a heavily planned lifetime? MEntity: Both. It would most likely indicate that, at least, Essence's idea for this lifetime was to deal with patterns that are across lifetimes, and the Subpersonalities required for this would get a head start, very early in the life. We point out here that your Astrology gives you an idea for what Essence thought was a good plan and idea for this life, and what YOU did with that can be a very different story. NOW, on to the Planets and their symbolism. First, the Sun will represent the True and False Personality, or how the Personality will show up in terms of manifesting Unity or Division, or Love vs Fear, or Essence vs Defenses, etc. Depending on where your Sun is, it can give you insights into how you run the whole of "you." This would be the "I" of you. It is often a meeting or battling ground, and indicates the aim of synthesis, for the Subpersonalities for the lifetime. Using our channel's Sun Sign as an example, we could say that all of his Subpersonalities meet, battle, and evolve relative to his Sun in the Second Quadarant of default relationships, in his 6th House as it is ruled by Aquarius. Translating this would mean that most of Troy's Subpersonalities battle or harmonize as they work through the default relationships that contributed to their births, and this is then played out in the realm of his Health, Responsibilities, and True Work/Life Tasks. We will not describe the contexts for each individual House at this time, but a quick glance at the system can give you insight as to where your own Subpersonalities battle or harmonize in your life. The House that the Sun is in would give you that insight. The Sign would give you the aim of Synthesis for the lifetime that these Subpersonalities would bring. For instance, Troy's would find Synthesis through the higher qualities that are Aquarian, which includes humanitarianism, equal rights, sharing of knowledge, wisdom, etc. The rest of the Planets would describe the Seeds, in the context of Astrology, that were planted as potential developments of Subpersonalities for the Personality. Keep in mind: Those Planets BELOW the horizon indicate Subpersonalities that probably already exist, and have existed from childhood, and have either evolved in status or remain problematic. Those Planets ABOVE the horizon indicate those Subpersonalities that may have developed mid-life, or in broader contexts of chosen relationships and relationships to humanity or spirit. The MOON can indicate the most unconscious of your Subpersonalities, where your greatest potential for True Personality could come, and is loosely relevant to the Seed of EXPRESSION. In other words, the Moon indicates what truly motivates your presence in the world, and often this is unconscious, but when it becomes conscious and accepted, this becomes a path for True Personality. The Subpersonalities that arise from this are usually relevant to Expression, and indicates the most sensitive of Subpersonalities. If this Planet is below the Horizon, it probably means you developed a sensitivity early in life regarding your Expression in the world, and this sprung forth Subpersonalities as a result. If this Planet is above the Horizon, it may be something that did not come into question until later in life, or at least it did not become a matter of awareness until then. We will speed through the rest more briefly, as we know this class has gone long. MERCURY indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to EXCHANGE, and relative to your ATTITUDE as it began to show in you. VENUS indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to COMMUNION, and relative to how your MODE functions in you. MARS indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to ADVENTURE, and how your Goal functions for you. JUPITER indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to EXPANSION, and the pursuit of creating meaning. SATURN indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to SECURITY, and those that arose to implement your Chief Negative Features. URANUS indicates those Subpersonalities that arose as seekers of The Truth in your life, managing your Higher Intellectual Center, and relative to POWER. NEPTUNE indicates those Subpersonalities that arose as seekers of Love/Agape in the life, managing your Higher Emotional Center, and relative to ACCEPTANCE. PLUTO indicates those Subpersonalities that arose as seekers of BEAUTY (or identifying patterns within chaos), managing your Higher Moving Center, and relative to FREEDOM. Putting together what we have shared today, then, can help you to understand the fragmentation that is within you in a way that is not seen as "broken," but is seen as the very matrix from which "you" spring, and that to care for those fragments is to care for you. To communicate with, understand, and implement that understanding of those fragments, or Subpersonalities, within you is to reach within for the wholeness that would then allow you to reach beyond you in ways that may never have been thought possible, or even imagined. In effect, this is what Essence does for every Personality in the end. And it is only then that the Cycling Off occurs. Cycling off cannot occur without Essence fully comprehending a profound depth of Truth, Love, and Beauty that is the entirety of its path through every Personality, who, each, gave rise to the possibility for that very Truth, Love, and Beauty. And so it is that a relative profundity is experienced by any Personality who understands what gave rise to its very consciousness within the lifetime. And we will conclude here for today.
  3. OMW - March 27, 2010 - Facets of Personality Troy Tolley, Channel Michael Entity: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with our elaboration on the concept of each Personality having variations that could be described as "facets" that can each be described in terms of Overleaves. For every Personality, there are actually a multitude of Overleaves that could be used to describe variations on the Personality and its expression by the individual, and its reception by others. We think it is helpful to understand this as it not only helps in your personal process of validation of the Overleaves, but it puts the Overleaves in a context that can be helpful in unique situations involving your behaviors and experiences. There is only one set of Overleaves that are genetic, or True, and these are on record in the Akashic Plane. These are often the most difficult to access, comprehend, accept, and/or validate. The complication in accessing, comprehending, accepting, or validating the True Overleaves is due to the myriad of ways that an individual can choose to present himself or herself, and just as many ways for that individual to be interpreted by others. Those variations are NO LESS VALID in their meaning, usefulness, and accuracy, at least in the short-term, or within certain contexts. And ALL variations can be useful, meaningful, and accurate to the extent that one aims awareness toward the Positive Poles. A roomful of fragments with variations in Soul Ages, Levels, and vastly different Overleaves will all "get along" and find value in each other to the extent that the members of this group are in the Positive Poles of their overleaves. Not only do the Positive Poles bring a wholeness to the individual, but they bring a cohesiveness to a group. This does not mean that the group or the individual would be without fear, extremes, emotions, ups, downs, differences, etc, but that the skills and tools for navigating these experiences are consciously utilized. The difference between Positive and Negative Poles is really just the difference between Wholeness and Division, Conscious and Unconscious, etc. The irony that many students miss in the process of working toward True Personality, the manifestation of the Personality in the Positive Poles, is that the Positive Poles INCLUDE the Negative Poles. The Positive Poles do not move away from the Negative, nor do they rise above them, or any other means of separation; they INCLUDE them. So in the process of aiming for the Positive Poles, you will "circle back" to include the Negative Poles; however, in that experience from the Positive Poles, you would understand, accept, utilize, navigate, and embrace the reality of the spectrum of who you are, how you feel, etc. There will be times that you do not feel whole, do not feel aware, do not choose to take the higher road, etc., but when the Positive Poles have come to be a regular part of the Personality, then those experiences are seen for what they are: temporary, relative to the moment, and informative of your feelings, thoughts, presence. There is no sense of being consumed, overwhelmed, trapped. We start off explaining these Poles as that will be helpful when we speak to each of you about the Facets of Personality and what it means for you, and how to work with that information. For instance, your Personality from the Positive Poles does not fight or reject or rise above Fear, but asks what information is in that fear, and then weighs that against the validity of threat. If there is no threat, the fear is appreciated and released. If there is a threat, then it is appreciated for alerting you. It is equally "Negative" for a fragment to walk through the woods at night terrified at every cracking twig as it is for that fragment to walk through the woods with no concern or awareness for the safety of the Body. It is part of your design to protect yourself, and to embrace any teaching that encourages your diminishing that part of yourself, over increasing its skill and usefulness, is to embrace the diminishment of your faculties for discernment, choice, and intelligence. As we said, each of you have a True Personality that was designed by Essence, and further molded by your first 3 years of life. Only the Centering is part of that "molding," but it is fair to include that. Your True Personality is WHO YOU ARE with or without your consent, agreement, or expression of it. It is your genetic dynamic and the Overleaves as they stand on record in the Akashic Plane. In the same way that one may fight, reject, hate, reshape, cloak, or redirect attention from his or her body type that is not to his or her liking, so will the True Personality remain intact despite the same. From the moment of Birth, and often before, the PUBLIC FACET of Overleaves begin to form. You are what others want or see you to be. This can eventually shape into what we have described as your Family Icon (or ikon), which is a conscious or unconscious presumption of role to play within the family that you may find yourself fulfilling. That icon is generated from those around you, and accepted as fact until you eventually question that role. If that questioning process does not happen, then that role can carry on for the rest of the life, often tucked away and only brought out when back in the context of family, but there, nonetheless. You will also find generated for your Personality a societal icon, friendship icon, personal icon, intimacy icon, etc. which we will not get into today, but you will see how they play in what we have to share today. For the most part, your Public Facet then will reflect the means to which you are playing the roles expected of you, consciously or unconsciously. This Public Facet is flexible and changes in its Overleaves, since they are not "real" beyond the projection or interpretation of othes, but there is often a pattern that is consistent. If this Public Facet, or the role assigned to you over your childhood, is finally questioned and processed for release, then the Private Facet begins to develop. The Public Facet could be said to be firmly seeded, even if not fully developed, by the age of 3. Or during the 2nd Internal Monad. The Private Facet is firmly seeded during the 3rd Internal Monad, or during the late teen years. The Private Facet is born from how one WISHES to be interpreted in the world. The Private Facet is often one's method of expression for processing the entire 4th Internal Monad. To the extent of discrepancy that the Public, Private, and True Overleaves are from each other is the extent to which one may feel fractured, living multiple roles, experiencing divisions within, and frustrated with his or her experiences in the world. If those Facets are experienced as expressions or interpretations from the Positive Poles, this is experienced far more joyfully and practically than if they are from the Negative Poles. Consider an actor who grows up with 3 Facets firmly locked in place with vast discrepancies among them, but moves himself or herself into the Positive Poles as often as possible. This fragment is embraced for many years and lives a fruitful, joyful life, despite how differently he or she feels when alone, when with fans, and with family. Brooke Shields would be a good example of this faceted life, but without division. Now consider an actor who grows up in the same conditions, but moves through life in the Negative Poles, generating deep fractures within the Personality, eventually consumed by these and often ending in suicide or overdose. The recent death of Corey Heim is a good example of this. Or Michael Jackson. For most who are not in the spotlight as a famous actor might be, the pressure to resolve those conflicting Facets may or may not be so strong, but the older the soul grows, the more it seeks to resolve those conflicts and fractures. They are no different from the fracture or breaking of a bone, in many ways. It is the infrastructure of "who you are." And when "who you are" is fractured, mobility in life is just as complicated as when the bones are broken, fractured, or brittle. Sub-Personalities From these Three Facets come the birth of what we describe as Sub-Personalities. Sub-Personalities are generated from the "mating" of two Facets and are not complete sets of Overleaves, but are specialized functions that emphasize specific Overleaves. For instance, if your Public Facet is difficult to embrace from your family's interpretation of you, and you wish to express Private Facet, it can often be met with resistance, which prompts the birth of a Sub-Personality that will emphasize a compromise. This compromise might be the highlight of the ATTITUDE that all of you can agree upon (figuratively speaking), and thus you find you can function within that context as that Sub-Personality. Again, the more that one functions from the Positive Poles, the more easily this is managed and not experienced as an assault against ones Being. In fact, the measurement of fracture within your Personality, and the extent to which you function from the Negative Poles, can often be found in how, when, why, and where one feels the most assault against one's Being. This is not a "bad thing," but an informative means of self-awareness for navigating into the Positive Poles, if you choose to do so. EXERCISE - Our first question to you, then, would be for you to quickly assess yourself by sharing: ONE - to what extent do you feel frustrated, invisible, assaulted, imposed upon, or even in betrayal of "who I really am." TWO - and in what context do you find this to be the most obvious (work, intimacy, social, family, etc) You may answer the first question with: OFTEN, SOMETIMES, NEVER You may begin your responses. [AnnH] sometimes [Martha] often [Diane_H] Often in work and family [Kerrin] often/work [Martha] work and family [ladycat] never in all [Kerrin] and family too [Geraldine] rarely (sometimes) -- social, family [AnnH] sometimes/family [AnnH] and social [AnnH] (I'm like you, G. Rarely, but it happens) [ChrisLeBlanc] I have felt frustratingly invisible to my mom, unable to express all i can be to her in person and my spiritualist attitude finds little space for expression at most jobs I have done, although working the dance floor lights lately has been great fun. Michael Entity: We have said before that these Facets often contribute to the discrepancies among our Channels, as some channels are more inclined to deliver what the student wishes to be, while others may present how the student comes across. We find this to be as helpful as any other set of Overleaves, if the aim is for the Positive Poles, as there are no harmful or "bad" Overleaves that can be assigned. It is also an opportunity, not unlike every exchange with us, even through your most-trusted channels, to discern against your own wisdom and evolving experiences. These fractures and facets may be found in responses from among our different channels. We have much to say about how to go about retrieving Overleaves from us through various channels, and how to go about validating that, but we will speak about that in other exchanges with you. EXERCISE TWO - Now we would ask that you examine a single context in which you feel the most pain, frustration, gap, etc. between "who you are" and how you experience yourself in that context. For Catheann, who responded that she "never" feels a discrepancy between who she is and how she is interpreted or expressing herself, we can suggest that you lightly observe further to see if you may actually have an example, and if you still do not, then simply sit this exercise out. For those with discrepancies, we suggest that you ask yourself: "WHAT DO I LONG FOR IN THOSE SITUATIONS THAT I FEEL I CAN'T BE, HAVE, or DO?" [Kerrin] my single biggest frustration would be with coworkers who think I am "always angry" or can be mean Michael Entity: To be more precise with our language: "What Do I Long For In Those Situations Where I DECIDE I Can't Be, Have, or Do?" [AnnH] besides leaving? :) [ladycat] thank you michael can remember past times where i felt frustrated because what I had told someone was not validated until they paid a professional to say the same thing. realized that i could continue to speak truth without needing validation. [Martha] I wish my family could appreciate me for who I am, or that I could stop imagining that they don't [Geraldine] I simply feel quite different within my living neighbors peer group -- I guess I long for more compatible neighbors, i.e., all Michael Students rather than church-going Christians; I think we're different soul ages, too -- but I don't really want to change anything, either -- I accept things as they are or are within range of "norm." [AnnH] There are situations with a friend who I like very much, but I find her overpowering/controlling in certain situations. [Diane_H] With my family, I long for acceptance instead of needing me to be who they want me to be. [AnnH] And I'd like to feel less overpowered or like a side-kick. [Kerrin] I wish people (mainly coworkers) saw me for who I am just a little bit- but in a mainly young-soul environment, they just don't "get me" Michael Entity: To Ann: If leaving is what you long to do, but do not, then it is important to note this. However, if this is a situation where you choose to remain, then we would suggest looking beyond the obvious solution of leaving, and into what it is that you long for that would make staying more pleasant. [AnnH] I'd like to "shine" more and engage with people, when I'm with her, in ways I prefer. [ChrisLeBlanc] I find it nearly impossible to find permanent work that could bring me as much fulfillment as making music and yet my past experience and training have nothing to do with music [ChrisLeBlanc] i guess i've always tried to fit a mold for reasons other than those that bring me the most joy [ChrisLeBlanc] and now it's time to shed those unjoyful imprints [ChrisLeBlanc] sorry for sounding so scattered/unfocused - my one input has become taxed like crazy with children and family gathering around me now - sigh Michael Entity: The second part of Exercise Two then is to ask yourself: WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT? This is not to provoke dismissal of your experience, nor to remedy it, but to generate insight. If "Why Is This So Important?" is difficult to answer, then ask, "HOW WOULD I BE DIFFERENT?" presuming your context aligned to your desires. [ChrisLeBlanc] I would hope to be able to focus without distraction from competing 'paradigms' on what I want to accomplish first of all, lol [Geraldine] It's not terribly important to me; hence why I'm quite content to be fairly reclusive and interact with the world in a way that is meaningful to me via the internet. [ladycat] connected to self worth [Kerrin] the opinions of these people really is not so important except that I find it hurtful to be thought of as hard or unkind when I am very much neither [Martha] it would be nice if I felt like my family was proud of me, and respected me. Is it life or death, no. [AnnH] I like to engage and have fun on my own terms. [Diane_H] I would feel more supported by my family. The only thing different would be I'd feel more at ease around them. [Martha] ditto Diane [ChrisLeBlanc] me three :) [Diane_H] Instead of dealing with having to tell them things they don't want to hear ;) [Kerrin] I really don't care what my family thinks of me- they don't really know me at all [AnnH] And mine sure isn't life or death [Martha] but it's around my family that I feel least able to be my real self, and it feels like I am forcing myself into a shoe that is too small when I am around them [ladycat] my lesson was when i finally told my mother who I was and watched the words come out of my mouth and right over her head. she did not hear me only what she wanted but that cleared me to always speak truth [Kerrin] I would say I "adjust my personality" according to what my family needs me to be [ChrisLeBlanc] yes 'dumbing down' is way too uncomfortable for this spritualist in growth too [ChrisLeBlanc] that sounds like some dynamic sub-personaltiy generation Kerrin [Kerrin] yikes! [ChrisLeBlanc] just in reference to what Michael have said above [Kerrin] maybe I should have been an actress [AnnH] I just clam up (under these social circumstances) and get crabby and bored [ChrisLeBlanc] yeah, feeling stifled sux [Kerrin] I found it helpful to move far away and only see family in short episodes where everyone stays pleasant. 2-3 hrs tops Michael Entity: There are two things we would say in response to your assessments: [AnnH] it's not a feeling of being stifled so much as I can't find a way in to connect with others when I'm with her. And I get resentful . Uh [ChrisLeBlanc] no way to 'bridge the divide' [Geraldine] I suppose, "Shut the fuck up!" doesn't work all that well, Ann? [AnnH] No. [Geraldine] Pity. :) [Kerrin] it probably would feel pretty good... [ChrisLeBlanc] i tried that with my mom, and she kicked us all out into a emergncy shelter for 41/2 months, lol [Diane_H] I actually like my family, but they don't know who I really am. [ChrisLeBlanc] probably should've waited till we had our own place first though, lol [Geraldine] do you think you know who they really are? [ChrisLeBlanc] yeah that's just it [ChrisLeBlanc] i love them forever [AnnH] There's nothing mean-spirited or even over-talkative, it's just that certain social interactions can only be on her terms. [Diane_H] Probably not [ChrisLeBlanc] but i wanna be so much more then there is space for in their cinsocusness sometimes Michael Entity: First, it will always be the case that you feel out of place and different and beyond the capacity for younger souls to comprehend, respect, relate, and admire you. To wish for them to comprehend you is similar to an adult wishing for a teenager or a toddler to relate to the adult perspective. It will always be that you must find the common ground that is within another, regardless of soul age, and build upon that. [Diane_H] Actually, I should probably amend my first answer to sometimes rather than often. I mainly get frustrated with my parent's expectations of me, and not so much with others not knowing me. [Kerrin] "respect" is the keyword I missed- it's more annoyance with not being respected than even with not being understood Michael Entity: To insist that a round peg be accepted by a square hole is inherently going to be met with resistance, pain, and frustration. Even if the only common ground between you is that pegs are "supposed to" go into holes, then that can be enough to bridge the gaps between you. [ChrisLeBlanc] well there would seem to be a lot of those mismatched pegs when it comes to soul age, are there better places than others in the search to find common ground? Michael Entity: That is highly simplistic analogy, but it is fair. We will address this first comment further in a moment. The second thing we would say is that it is important to remember that you are a part of the equation that contributes to the Facets of those around you. Your presumption that they should "respect" or "get you" when you have not done the same (even if you feel you have) is part of what contributes to the pain and division. For if you "respected" them, or "got them," you would understand their limitations, fears, inabilities, etc. We are speaking to all of you, though we use only a couple of quoted examples. Our point being that often the very problem of division and frustration and pain is precisely found in your issues found with the "other person." Whatever you find that the other person should do to help make the situation better is often the very thing you refuse to do. You have decided upon what their Public Facet is and left them there. You have not sought to go beyond the Public Facet until they have gone beyond yours. If you feel that you have gone beyond the Public Facet, yet still remain frustrated, then you have not gone beyond the Public Facet. Barring physical abuse, violation, or removal of your choice, your divisions are often a matter of refusal to embrace the truth of another. Refusal to embrace that person's capacity to Love, and method for Action. It is often touted among spiritual and new age circles that in order to be loved, one must love oneself, but we point out that this can only go so far. It requires practice in both directions. The capacity to which you can embrace the unlovable is the capacity to which you can embrace yourself, express yourself, and be yourself. It also goes that the more you are "yourself," the more invitation and opportunity for acceptable love, truth, and energy you bring to all exchanges. This is NOT to say that this will alter the behavior of those who are "difficult," but we can say that your reaction and response to that difficulty alters your experience of it, and therefore CAN alter the patterns of a person relating to you. It will always be helpful for you to remember that no matter how well you know someone, you are always filtering them through the Public Facet; through YOUR interpretation of that person. [Kerrin] I don't know if that's always the case. Sometimes the acceptance only comes when you can act, look and "fit in" with what others deem acceptable Michael Entity: We are not speaking of your being accepted, but of your finding the experiences acceptable. It will always be helpful for you to remember that no matter how much you are yourself, you will ALWAYS be experienced through the Public Facet, or others' INTERPRETATION of you. In short, you can only ever truly BE YOUR TRUE SELF with YOURSELF. [ChrisLeBlanc] we cannot share our unique perspectives on experience 'first hand' [ChrisLeBlanc] just share our experience of it Michael Entity: This may or may not extend into your outer world, or into your interpretations of yourself, but it is vital to remember that NO INTERPRETATION, OR PREFERRED EXPRESSION OF YOU, WILL EVER CHANGE WHO YOU REALLY ARE. Ever. [Geraldine] Michael -- is this similar to auras -- one always perceives another's color through one's own color, too? i.e., through one's own public facet, too? [ChrisLeBlanc] and we certainly can't control how it will be perceived by others either - nice to know that nothing can change us from without Michael Entity: We do not say that as a means of comforting you, but as a point that beyond all interpretations and preferred expressions, you are still YOU. And all of those interpretations and preferred expressions are a PART of that. You are NEVER NOT YOU. [ChrisLeBlanc] that is truly profound, and profoundly simple Michael Entity: In response to Geraldine, not exactly. One is usually unaware of, or not privy to, the Public Facet, so it is not a filter in itself to how another is interpreted. Even when one is aware of how others interpret them, they are only aware of this by virtue of symptoms, not experience. One will NEVER be able to truly see oneself from another's perspective (until cycling off and reuniting within the entity.) [ChrisLeBlanc] when it becomes part of your existential perspective Michael Entity: One can gain clear accuracy in that interpretation, much the way one can empathize with someone's pain, even as that pain is not directly felt, but it will still not be the same interpretation or pain. There are three solutions to any painful or frustrating divides between yourself and another: ONE - remove yourself. This is often the quickest and most-immediate (though not always the easiest) solution. TWO - embrace your role. This only feels as awful as you resist it. The conscious embrace of your role within various contexts can help you to "be yourself" as fully as possible within that role. It will not destroy your Being, and it will not alter the validity of who you are beyond that role. This is an important option if there are consequences to breaking that role that you do not care for, but enjoy rewards from playing that role. This is not a betrayal of self, but an embrace of self. One way to help you understand this choice, and its importance as a valid choice, is in comparing it to your existence in the first place as a Personality in this lifetime. Your Essence must "squeeze itself" into a Personality that is infinitely focused in definition beyond what it is outside of the incarnational cycle. This is why we use the term "role." Your Essence can love beyond those limitations you set upon it, and even though you often reject the perspective of Essence, it would never abandon you, condemn you, or reject you. Essence does not require you to "get it" for it to feel the validation of its existence. There are countless lives lived through Personalities that will never know it had a soul. In that same way, as you grow older in soul age, you will come across these limitations and "roles" within your exchanges with others in a lifetime. The irony is in that you are now aware of the vastness of yourself and the possibilities beyond limitations, which was gained through the patience, embrace, and higher perspective of your Essence for your Essence Role. You were created in this lifetime by your Role from a place that comprehends its vastness more than ever. But in that realization of vastness and capacity for acceptance and love and Being, you now expect this from all contexts of your life and relationships without remembering the eons that it took you to get to this place. We realize the limitations on time, and all personal information will be sent outside of the chat. The personal responses we have are rather useless without these broader contexts. However, we may use Kerrin as an example in a moment. So option Two is to bring "pay forward" the kind of compassion and patience that allowed for you to get to a place where you even notice limitations, let alone the tangibility of potentials beyond those limitations. THREE - to be yourself. By this we mean that you leave it to others to deal with the consequences of your being true to what you feel best represents you. The key here is in realizing exactly what it means for you to "be yourself," and this may take more thought than you realize. For instance, are you more "yourself" to be argumentative and combative to get a point across, or are you more "yourself" to take a passive position and allow another to leave thinking he or she is "right." On the surface it may seem as if you are not free to be yourself because your perspective was ignored or lost, but in truth you were more true to yourself that you did not engage in useless combat. We would suggest careful examination of yourself in your most uncomfortable contexts to see just how true you are to the core of yourself, despite whether the varations on that core receive acceptance or expression. You may be surprised. In MOST instances of contexts where these frustrations occur, ALL THREE SOLUTIONS are available at all times, to be called upon appropriately. You may choose to sometimes leave, to sometimes compromise into a role, and to sometimes break out of that role to surprise with who you 'really' are. This is a whole person. This is a True Personality. This is the Positive Poles. To feel trapped in a context, or to insist on choosing one of the three solutions, is an indication of your division within, and the depth of your fracturing, or Negative Poles. Realizing that you can be Whole by being greater than the sum of your PARTS is a step toward your last lifetime. The Parts of you are True, Public, and Private. You cannot exist fully without embracing the reality and validity of all of them. And in that regard, yes, Kerrin, you can be an angry person, yes, Martha, you are radical crazy, yes, Diane, you are well-behaved, yes, Christian, you are "out there," yes Geraldine, you are unforgivable, yes Ann, you are a sidekick, and Catheann you have been a liar. This does not mean those interpretations are "true," but that they are true for someone else, and you cannot always control that. [AnnH] Just call me Hop-a-long Cassidy--or Ethel Mertz [ChrisLeBlanc] i'd be ethereal hertz, lol Michael Entity: You can always invite more accurate interpretations of you, but it would always do you well to see these as invitations, not as demands. What we can say is that there is NOTHING UNTRUE about others' interpretations of you. [Kerrin] I shall embrace the "Angry Redhead" Michael Entity: It is "true" within the context of your relationship with that person, and it is your choice in how to experience that. What we would say to you, Kerrin, is more that you find a way to appreciate the fact that these younger souls are keen enough to see beyond your surface and into your frustrations that bleed more into your life than you care to admit. It is not untrue that you are angry (feel helpless) in your work environment, and this is not easily hidden. Of course, this is exacerbated by having it called out as an identity, but it does not change the fact that this is the means through which some younger souls try to relate. Younger souls tend toward one-dimensional identities for one another, and once that is defined, it is difficult to transform. This is why it is frustrating to you, we would think. Because it is not so much that it is untrue, but that it is NOT the only truth about you, and that other truths that you find more pleasant might like to be acknowledged. [Kerrin] and I think the role doesn't help the situation Michael Entity: Again, we suggest the 3 solutions: remove yourself from the situations; embrace the role (which can often mean exaggerating it or "camping it up"); or display breaks from the role on your own terms. What we will provide for each of you outside of this chat is our interpretation of your most consistent Public and Private Overleaves, along with a commentary about what you shared as your most frustrating context. [AnnH] Dang! [Martha] when we ask Troy for a profile, is it the True overleaves you give? Michael Entity: Based on our understanding of Troy's schedule and patterns of behavior, we would suggest expecting this by Monday evening. [ChrisLeBlanc] i doubt it Martha - diving into the Akashic records is quite an involved and lenghty process from what i understand [AnnH] me, neither [ChrisLeBlanc] although i imagine Role in Essence and casting are pretty consistent Michael Entity: Yes, Martha, through this channel we retrieve what is in the Akashic Records. This does not mean that what is received is above question, but that the focus is for the Akashic Record. [AnnH] But maybe the channel has other things to do? [ChrisLeBlanc] k, i stand corrected :-) sorry to speak for you Michael Michael Entity: Most of our channels have not differentiated or questioned in the direction that clarified these facets. That is not to say that other channels do not receive the True Personality as on record, but that the variables are in favor of dependency on what has become comfortable for the channel, or preferable to the student. [ChrisLeBlanc] the facets and fractures of sub-personalities and public and private overleaves have clarified things wonderfully for me tonight :) thank you Michael Michael Entity: Some of our channels leave it up to whatever is most useful for the student at the time, and this has worked, whether it is the True, Public, or Private set. Ultimately that will always be the case for our clearest channels, even when the aim is for the Akashic Records set. We offer this differentiation only for your consideration and for your process of validation and discernment, not as a means to describe a hierarchy among channels. With this awareness in place, it would probably become easier to discern which channels depend upon physical plane cues for interpreting the Personality, which ones depend on your feedback for intuiting your Overleaves, and which ones simply leave it to us. [Geraldine] those needing photographs would seem to depend on physical plane clues Michael Entity: We would also say that accessing the Akashic Records is only a painstaking task for the Personality and Essence still incarnating. It is not complicated for us to access it. Our channels simply relay from the work that we do, and are not a part of the process. [ChrisLeBlanc] or when I was asked what i thought mine were first, that channel's were probably public overleaves Michael Entity: The more physical plane cues our channel uses, the more it is the channel intuiting or interpreting the Overleaves, which is just as valid and can be just as accurate as letting us convey our perception. [ChrisLeBlanc] oh, i had thought retrieving info from the Akashic was in fact a difficult skill your Entity was presently developing Michael Entity: We say that it is just as valid in the sense that it is still your responsibility to validate, and even when we share what we see as your True Overleaves, it is OUR interpretation of the records. You can never escape Interpretation or Expression. That is the nature of Existence. Accessing information from the Akashic is no longer a complication, but we continue to learn how to interpret the records. [ChrisLeBlanc] and expressing that interpretation through channels i imagine too Michael Entity: Access is "easy." Reading and Conveying is a different matter. [ChrisLeBlanc] that resonates :) Michael Entity: The Overleaves are part of the records we started with, so we no longer have any complications in reading those, but no matter how clear a channel is, or how well we can read/interpret, there will always be built-in distortions that affect transmission to a channel. That can be said of even your clearest modes of communication among you, as well. It is the nature of exchange. We remind you that channels who rely on physical plane cues and intuition does not preclude them from accuracy in discerning what would be your True Overleaves, especially if there is little discrepancy and division within you. We only differentiate this set as 'true' as they exist with or without your approval or acceptance, and include the Public and Private Facets as potential support rather than as troublesome nuisances. To conclude here, we will remind you of the most important part of what we have shared tonight: Your Essence Role gains wholeness BECAUSE of all of its parts (lifetimes/personalities), as you gain wholeness BECAUSE of all of the ways you experience yourself, see yourself, and find yourself reflected from others. And when you find yourself reduced to a PART, a Role, remembering that this contributes to the Whole may help you to lose your sense of being consumed by that role, or imposed upon, or trapped within. Allowing for you to more joyfully and easily slip into your next context, role, or part. In the same way that YOU exist within your Essence, rather than the other way around, so do the roles you find yourself in exist within the greater (or true) YOU, and not the other way around. And finally: gently consider moving beyond the concept of "Being Yourself," and into the concept of "Being Everything." Because by now, you have been. And many of those whom you find the most challenging are opportunities to gain more understanding about yourself, and to embrace parts of the experiences of your world that have been the most difficult to embrace. We have a different kind of humor than when incarnated, but we do find it "funny" that most of the most annoying of personality types and soul ages that our students find challenging now were some of their very own favorite personality types or soul ages. At some point, your Essence thought it would be interesting to revisit those Personality types and soul ages, and as you embrace more of your Essence, your life moves in directions originally intended by Essence. We know that many of our students can be condemning of the most obnoxious of teenagers, for instance, while having been one themselves within this same lifetime. If the same personality can forget within a lifetime, we point out that it cannot be expected of you to "remember' that some of the more difficult people around you are also a part of your "past." We will conclude here.
  4. February 25, 1999 Troy Tolley, Channel Parallels Note from Janet: This was a very early session and there is editing done by an unknown person to fill in gaps, which either occurred as part of the channeling or as part of transfer to a transcript. [Michael_Entity] Ok… Hello to all of you… What we'll do is start with the “weather forecast” as usual, reviewing a little on what might have happened for some of you over the past few weeks, then address the next few [weeks]. Again, for purposes of our introduction to this electronic medium in this fashion through this channel, we will remain open for questions, personal or otherwise, at the end. No topics, necessarily. We spoke last about your own futures being examined in terms of how you and Essence would like to show up, express yourselves, in the coming year. This is due, in part, to the natural energies of this year, as well as the fact that each of you will be “spinning off” aspects of yourselves for various purposes. What we saw as most indicative for you in this examination period, in terms of how you might be handling this, is through the “reflections” of your EXTERNAL environment. This period of time in your environment's reflection has become almost harshly “realistic”; nothing spared. We also mentioned to be on the lookout for Animals and Specifically Categorized Individuals (mentally, physically challenged, or those apparently “rejected” on the outskirts of your societies) as being highlighted symbolically. Some of you may have seen clear indications, while others simply noted, then moved on. Depending on your involvement with the SYMBOLS, either in dreams or in a situation in which you have been drawn, you may or may not be having a “serious” fluctuation of future probabilities. Here are the indications that your symbols were meaningful: 1. That it appeared, drawing your attention, surprisingly. 2. That it “stayed” with you, even if only for the day, but at least an extended time. It is that simple. There is one more indication of what your INDIVIDUAL shifts will be focusing on in the weeks ahead: Some of you are in a specific crisis. A personal crisis [seeming] to be a [repetitive or all-too-familiar] pattern. This, we would say, is the third SYMBOL for this transition ahead. Each carries meaning. Those who have had animals show up: You are moving toward more EARTH and ACTION-ORIENTED service in the year ahead, being very drawn out into the world. The way you have interacted with the Animal, or how it called your attention, lends you insight into how you will interact in the world as you, yourselves, are “called out” into [the world]. For those who saw or will see a preponderance of specifically categorized people, or challenged people: You will most likely be dealing with INNER CIRCLE service, taking care of interpersonal relationships, healing or tending to those closest to you. For those dealing with an extenuating circumstance, or Crisis, as a pattern: You are in the process of “upgrading” your beliefs. There will be “no room” in the months ahead for many of you to be distracted with “outdated” patterns. You are dealing with it either in one massive blow, or you will simply leave it for another lifetime. Now, beginning March 1, approximately, you all will enter this transitional phase, or NEXUS of Parallels. Each will enter at various points [in time], but the PAST few weeks, and actually most of the beginning of this year and the end of last year, you were doing the “research.” This NEXUS is where you begin to condense and manifest EXACTLY what Essence and Personality are striving to experience in the year ahead. There will be many “versions” of you “out there.” There is no need to be concerned with “how” this is, unless you choose to study the Physics of your Universe. The “YOU” you are most concerned with is the “one” you appear to be at any given moment. Now, before more details, if any, we will take questions in regard to this. We will add, briefly, that if [more than one] symbol shows up for you, it is simply an indication of your being involved [in each of these levels]. [IK] Can you suggest effective ways for moving through this nexus? [Michael_Entity] We just did. [IK] More specifically then? [Michael_Entity] Yes, but this would require a questioning of the specific symbol and its relation to you, your reaction/response to it, and our interpretation of that. What each of you can do is sit down with your symbols, if any, and examine what they may mean symbolically to you, what your reaction indicates (fearful, excited, exasperated, etc.), and what this all might mean to you personally. For example: Assuming an animal has shown up in your dream, you may interpret the animal personally, or look it up in an animal totem book, then add your actions/interactions/reactions/responses to the picture and make a story. AFTER there is clarity (and even if no clarity sets in), the actual NEXUS phase will find your “new” environment beginning to truly feel more “REAL” and needing to be “reckoned” with. It would be best to allow all EXTERNAL calls to your attention be taken seriously in the weeks ahead, as this is where your Work is. There is really no more that we can say without a detailed exploration of each of you. [ha] Why would it become desirable to “spin off” aspects of self, i.e., I'm in process of re-integrating spin-offs, why would it be beneficial to spin off more? [Michael_Entity] It would depend on your definitions of “Spin-offs”. Assuming [your definition is] the same, it will always be the case in any given lifetime that aspects of your Personality “spin off” into realities of their own. This is simply because Essence wants to not only experience EVERYTHING it intended (your TRUNK REALITY), but also all of the creative input from Personality. When you speak of integrating these Parallels [“spin-offs”], this may easily mean that other aspects of Personality [are moving] on, [being replaced]. Let us clarify something: Each Personality is composed of what we refer to as SUB-PERSONALITIES, aspects of “you” that make up who you are in various situations. Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE, virtual “sub-personalities” of the Essence. We realize this can be mind-boggling, but we assure you, you are not required to grasp this. That is what Essence does. You, as Personality, have only the life to contend with, not the creation of the Universal Schemes. Many of you will be bringing in aspects/parallels that have been off in their “own” realities for a while, and now are merging with “this one”, but we will discuss that at a later date. [ha] So when you mentioned at the beginning that we may be spinning off aspects of self, did this mean sub-personalities of self, or essence's sub-personalities? Also, if it is sub-personalities of self, where do those spin-offs go and what do they do? [Michael_Entity] We were referring to Essence “sub-personalities”. Sub-personalities of Self stay with you, present, and are called to the “surface” for your various situations. Multiple Personalities and Schizophrenia are the results of breakdown and non-communication between these sub-personalities, by the way. When you ask, “where do they go?,” the same similar event occurs on an Essence level: YOU and ESSENCE exist within the SAME SPACE. ALL the parallels exist within the same space, but “you” are at a different “frequency” for Essence. An easy way to visualize this: Imagine Parallels as being a conglomeration of colors on a single surface. THIS is how Essence “sees” it all at once, but when this conglomeration of color is [seen] through, for example, a BLUE lens, different colors are highlighted and others diminished. The SAME palette is there, but the FOCUS creates a different “dimension.” Other “lenses” would create similar results. “YOU” are a specific focus within the conglomeration of all the Parallels. This is a grand topic. [fg] M said, “Parallel Selves are aspects of ESSENCE; virtual sub-personalities of the Essence.” What do you mean by virtual? [Michael_Entity] That was a convenience of speech. We choose our words carefully in many ways and this, we felt, carried the best impact as these “selves” are not easily verifiable. But it is only from the perspective of one self that these [other selves] would appear “virtual”. Did this answer your question? [fg] Yes, thanks. [Michael_Entity] We will continue if there are questions. [M6] Last week here at this time we had an interesting energy connection and conversation, though we weren't able to have the planned Michael channeling. Could you explain the connections and processes we were experiencing together? There was some channeling going on. [Michael_Entity] Your “connections and process” were exactly that. There are some of you with whom we have Agreements as Students, some as Channels. We have one Channel [that was present] we are working with and those with whom she has Agreements will find this format rewarding and experientially fulfilling. It appears you were a part of that process. Certain [fragments] will need to be connected with our Channel as we work through. Familiarity breeds success. It may be validating to know we were essentially present. [ha] It seems that I have an instigating personality. Lately, wherever I go, I seem to stir up discussions and connections. Is this part of my life-task? [Michael_Entity] You are this way in all of your lives in various forms. It is a favorite theme. You are not one to easily be appeased with pointlessness and dismissiveness. In this life, you have chosen Overleaves that keep that from happening, for the most part, and yes, it would have a part in your Life Task. [s5] When the libraries were burned at Alexandria, I am assuming much knowledge was destroyed. Can you tell us what some of that knowledge was? Have we as a culture rediscovered all, or is there something yet to reemerge? [Michael_Entity] To elaborate on what was lost would require a different forum, and we can address this in full, more elaborately, when more time is available. We will say, however, that most of that knowledge would be difficult to gather, except through channeling or other psychic endeavors. Even then, it is not guaranteed to be accurate. There are a few elements surfacing after the turn of the century that are material. [km] I am having much conflict with those I work with. I feel that it is positive, that I'm learning to “stand up for myself”. Then again, I may be acting from negative poles. Can you comment? [Michael_Entity] You are, indeed, reacting and expressing through the Negative Poles, but only as a path toward the Positive Poles. Your task in this situation is to RESPOND, rather than REACT. It is true that those involved are difficult in many ways, primarily due to abrasive Overleaves, but this is only highlighted as you explore your Self-Karma, centering around your own historic belief that you must “do the right thing.” It angers you to feel “pushed” past what you feel is “right.” This is merely a maturation process and indicates you are moving toward realization of internal security. There is much more to this, but this is start. [s0] It has been suggested that I write a book about my life, is this part of my life task? [Michael_Entity] It would be one way to express it, yes. There is no SPECIFIC route with which a LIFE TASK must be manifested. In fact, what is mostly misunderstood about a Life Task is that you SEEK it, or PURSUE it. In reality, you already DO it. It comes naturally. Incidentally, you are, in fact, in Agreement with several thousand Essences for a book. [fg] Are sound (physical or not) and material form connected? I.e. “in the beginning was the Word…” [Michael_Entity] Yes, Light, and indeed all of Physical Reality, is the result of Music and Math. All can be translated into these forms. This Universe is built on Music and Math, and your Physical Structures are based on Circles and Triangles. There are connections and cross references all through these terms. Another Grand Topic. [a5] How can one draw the wisdom, help, of cycled off (disincarnate) entity mates? I've heard they are around to assist. True? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course they are available. It is one of the easiest of all connections to call on. What makes it difficult is that most of the “wisdom” feels like “you.” Trusting your impulses, [inner] voices, magnetism; these are messages from Entity Mates who are in some way working with you. If you choose to give them a voice, as we have for ourselves through our channels, it would require a different approach, but the wisdom is available simply by asking. [km] What would be an important use of brainwave “EEG” technology? [Michael_Entity] We have no investments on the paths chosen to use this tool and we see it simply as a picture tool, a map. It may be used in whatever capacity a fragment or group may choose. There are many ways this can be applied. We will now comment that many of you have topics right here that may be of interest to you. We are aware this format is limited in our ability to respond adequately. If you would like any of these elaborated upon for your next gathering, simply ask or suggest your interest. We will move more quickly into a Topic in the future. Good Night.
  5. Permission has been given by Troy Tolley to post this excerpt from an OMW on Subpersonalities held May 7, 2011. With OMW membership the entire transcript can be viewed in the OMW Group. For veracity - all questions and comments remain intact. Michael on The Astrology of Subpersonalities Quite spontaneously – at an OMW on Subpersonalities – Michael started to talk about Astrology. They described how the Natal Chart can be broken into Quadrants, how to “read” Planet placement by Quadrant, how Quadrants/Planet placement describes your “life work” and your “journey” through the Internal Monads. They went on to discuss the meaning of Planets placed above and below the horizon and the meaning/description of each Planet – all from The Michael Teachings perspective. MEntity: Part of how your Essence creates you is by using Astrology. MEntity: The planetary arrangements at the time of your conception and the time of your birth, both, play tremendous factors in what is potential within your Personality. MEntity: Most of the influences at the time of conception are focused on the development of the Body, while the influences at the time of birth are focused on the Personality. MEntity: In looking at your Natal Chart, the first three Houses are what would be described as the First Quadrant; the next three would be the Second; the next three, the Third, and 10, 11, and 12 are the Fourth. MEntity: If one were to think of the Natal Chart as the garden we described earlier, the Planets "sprinkled" among this are the Seeds at birth. MEntity: Those Planets in the First Quadrant, if any, would be those that develop almost immediately and build as a kind of core for the lifetime. These usually indicate the Subpersonalities that will require the most healing, often carried over by themes from other lifetimes, or Karma, etc, and so the life begins building those, first. MEntity: Those Planets in the Second Quadrant might describe the Subpersonalities that would spring to life after the 2nd Internal Monad and into the 3rd, and would be most obvious in realms of relationships, family, contributions, etc. MEntity: Those Planets in the Third Quadrant might describe those Subpersonalities that spring to life during the 4th Internal Monad, and would show up most obviously in your chosen relationships, and your sense of identity as it relates to "the world." MEntity: Where the Second Quadrant relates to default relationships (family, etc), the Third relates to chosen relationships, which may include family, but is often friendships, long-term matedness, partnerships, etc. MEntity: The Third also includes the sense of relationship within, or to the self. MEntity: And the Fourth Quadrant would house Planets that represent the Subpersonalities that might spring to life in the 5th Internal Monad, or in the sense of place in the cosmos, humanity, the earth, etc. MEntity: Any Planets below the horizon, or in Houses 1-6, would be those representing more unconscious or default Subpersonalities that either eventually dominate, or evolve, and these often start at the lower end of the degrees of fulfillment (1 to 4). MEntity: Any Planets above the horizon, or in Houses 7 - 12, would be those representing more obvious, or conscious Subpersonalities that may behave almost seamlessly with "you," fulfilling degrees of 5 or higher for any relevant Need/Want/Seed. MEntity: This might become obvious when looking at the symbolism, as those Houses below the horizon describe context that are usually already in momentum before consciousness has a chance to build, and therefore must build up from within those contexts. MEntity: To the degree that your Planets are below the Horizon is the degree to which your Essence probably intended very specific plans for "you." MEntity: Many who are in a 6th Level will find a bulk of Planets below the Horizon, for instance. MEntity: With some creativity, some of you may find correlation between the known Planets, their symbolism, and the 9 Seeds we already described, but if you cannot find correlation, that is to be expected. MEntity: These are different ways of mapping, so they may not correlate easily. MEntity: Before we describe the Planets as they symbolize the influences that become your Subpersonalities that become "you," we will ask now if there are any questions about what we have shared so far. DavidB: *** MEntity: Yes, David. DavidB: What could be said of Essence's plan for someone with a majority of planets above the horizon? For example, 9 of my 10 are. DavidB: I'm asking generally, of course. Martha: me too, 3rd quad is loaded AnnH: So is mine MEntity: If the bulk of your Planets are above the Horizon, it may indicate the degree to which the overall life was "unplanned" to any degree of detail, which means those with the bulk above horizon might often feel that the life is either a meandering and wandering, or with a momentum and no one really driving. DavidB: ok. MEntity: However, to the degree that a Quadrant is dense with planets is the degree to which that area of the life might then "kick in" the "plans" that may have been most-intended. Martha: aha Martha: so loaded 3rd quad hits during 4th IM Maureen: So if someone has a 'loaded' 12th house - their 'real' work might 'kick in' during the 5th IM? MEntity: If a Quadrant is completely free of any Planets, that Quadrant is often as a major emphasis for the life as a major context, free from biases and influences and Subpersonalities. DavidB: Do you have any particular house system in mind to divide 1st quadrant from 2nd and 3rd from 4th? MEntity: For instance, our Channel, Troy, has Houses 10 through 12 free, which allows us to come through to a degree that is free from most anything "Troy," as he is focused elsewhere in his life. MEntity: Maureen, that would be one way that it shows up, but it may also be said that it would "kick in" within the context of contributions to humanity or the bigger picture, and does not require the passage of the 5th Internal Monad. MEntity: Though, often, those with a density in 4th Quadrant do find the clarity and sense of purpose during or after the 5th Internal Monad. AnnH: If I have houses 2-5 free, what would that mean? Maureen: My first Quadrant could be considered 'empty' - how would that show up? EricM: heh, and my first quadrant is jam packed Maureen: :) Martha: my second is empty MEntity: We know there are various House Systems, so we suggest experimenting and using the one that makes sense to you, as they are all symbolic, and what resonates with you is yours. Geraldine: My 3rd and 4th are nearly empty -- it's like I should have died long ago Martha: lol DavidB: ok, thanks Michael. DavidB: I have a 4/5 split between the 3rd and 4th using Placidus. DavidB: with 5 in the 3rd. Diane_H: 8 of my 10 planets are mostly in the 2nd and 3rd quadrants. MEntity: Again, when a Quadrant is empty, it usually becomes a non-charged, but major underlying theme throughout everything. MEntity: Biases and Subpersonalities will not affect that Quadrant. DavidB: Neptune is alone in my first. :-) poor guy. Martha: it's alone in my 4th MEntity: In your case, Maureen, it might be said that the perception of the inner self, the core of a person, their wounds, their past, their needs for healing, etc can be seen as crystal clear to you. MEntity: You just "know." Martha: I saw you do that at Claymont, Maureen Maureen: :) MEntity: The density or lack of Planets in a Quadrant has no bearing on how long the life will be or should be. MEntity: They are contexts. MEntity: And while some activations occur in the context of linear progression, activations also occur in the contexts of categories/relationships. EricM: So then a packed first quadrant would then suggest many subpersonalities dealing with the core or the self, or a heavily planned lifetime? MEntity: Both. EricM: interesting MEntity: It would most likely indicate that, at least, Essence's idea for this lifetime was to deal with patterns that are across lifetimes, and the Subpersonalities required for this would get a head start, very early in the life. MEntity: We point out here that your Astrology gives you an idea for what Essence thought was a good plan and idea for this life, and what YOU did with that can be a very different story. MEntity: NOW, on to the Planets and their symbolism. DavidB: ah, yes. :-) Geraldine: (this pause makes me think all of this upcoming information is not only new but due to symbolism isn't easy to translate) MEntity: First, the SUN will represent the True and False Personality, or how the Personality will show up in terms of manifesting Unity or Division, or Love vs Fear, or Essence vs Defenses, etc. MEntity: Depending on where your Sun is, it can give you insights into how you run the whole of "you." MEntity: This would be the "I" of you. MEntity: It is often a meeting or battling ground, and indicates the aim of synthesis, for the Subpersonalities for the lifetime. MEntity: Using our channel's Sun Sign as an example, we could say that all of his Subpersonalities meet, battle, and evolve relative to his Sun in the Second Quadrant of default relationships, in his 6th House as it is ruled by Aquarius. MEntity: Translating this would mean that most of Troy's Subpersonalities battle or harmonize as they work through the default relationships that contributed to their births, and this is then played out in the realm of his Health, Responsibilities, and True Work/Life Tasks. MEntity: We will not describe the contexts for each individual House at this time, but a quick glance at the system can give you insight as to where your own Subpersonalities battle or harmonize in your life. MEntity: The House that the Sun is in would give you that insight. MEntity: The Sign would give you the aim of Synthesis for the lifetime that these Subpersonalities would bring. For instance, Troy's would find Synthesis through the higher qualities that are Aquarian, which includes humanitarianism, equal rights, sharing of knowledge, wisdom, etc. MEntity: The rest of the Planets would describe the Seeds, in the context of Astrology, that were planted as potential developments of Subpersonalities for the Personality. MEntity: Keep in mind: MEntity: Those Planets BELOW the horizon indicate Subpersonalities that probably already exist, and have existed from childhood, and have either evolved in status or remain problematic. MEntity: Those Planets ABOVE the horizon indicate those Subpersonalities that may have developed mid-life, or in broader contexts of chosen relationships and relationships to humanity or spirit. MEntity: The MOON can indicate the most unconscious of your Subpersonalities, where your greatest potential for True Personality could come, and is loosely relevant to the Seed of EXPRESSION. MEntity: In other words, the Moon indicates what truly motivates your presence in the world, and often this is unconscious, but when it becomes conscious and accepted, this becomes a path for True Personality. MEntity: The Subpersonalities that arise from this are usually relevant to Expression, and indicates the most sensitive of Subpersonalities. MEntity: If this Planet is below the Horizon, it probably means you developed a sensitivity early in life regarding your Expression in the world, and this sprung forth Subpersonalities as a result. MEntity: If this Planet is above the Horizon, it may be something that did not come into question until later in life, or at least it did not become a matter of awareness until then. MEntity: We will speed through the rest more briefly, as we know this class has gone long. MEntity: MERCURY indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to EXCHANGE, and relative to your ATTITUDE as it began to show in you. MEntity: VENUS indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to COMMUNION, and relative to how your MODE functions in you. MEntity: MARS indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to ADVENTURE, and how your Goal functions for you. MEntity: JUPITER indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to EXPANSION, and the pursuit of creating meaning. MEntity: SATURN indicates those Subpersonalities that may have sprung up relative to SECURITY, and those that arose to implement your Chief Negative Features. MEntity: URANUS indicates those Subpersonalities that arose as seekers of The Truth in your life, managing your Higher Intellectual Center, and relative to POWER. MEntity: NEPTUNE indicates those Subpersonalities arose as seekers of Love/Agape in the life, managing your Higher Emotional Center, and relative to ACCEPTANCE. MEntity: PLUTO indicates those Subpersonalities that arose as seekers of BEAUTY (or identifying patterns within chaos), managing your Higher Moving Center, and relative to FREEDOM. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ MEntity: Putting together what we have shared today, then, can help you to understand the fragmentation that is within you in a way that is not seen as "broken," but is seen as the very matrix from which "you" spring, and that to care for those fragments is to care for you. MEntity: To communicate with, understand, and implement that understanding of those fragments, or Subpersonalities, within you is to reach within for the wholeness that would then allow you to reach beyond you in ways that may never been thought possible, or even imagined. MEntity: In effect, this is what Essence does for every Personality in the end. MEntity: And it is only then that the Cycling Off occurs. MEntity: Cycling off cannot occur without Essence fully comprehending a profound depth of Truth, Love, and Beauty that is the entirety of its path through every Personality, who, each, gave rise to that possibility for Essence to comprehend that very Truth, Love, and Beauty. MEntity: And so it is that a relative profundity is experienced by any Personality who understands what gave rise to its very consciousness within the lifetime. ADDENDUM: March 19, 2012: Maureen: I would like clarification on Michael assigning POWER to Uranus and FREEDOM to Pluto at Subpersonalities Workshop on May 7, 201. Please explain from your perspective how POWER fits with Uranus and FREEDOM fits with Pluto. MEntity: We would say that this is just a matter of context. As the Subpersonalities arise from a search for truth, the influence and symbolism of this planet <Uranus> is fitting, as it pushes for shifts in perceptions and insights. MEntity: Truth, or knowledge, then, tends to be empowering, bring about the capacity for more influential and effective presence. MEntity: Pluto, in this context, is relative to those patterns of transformations within the life that are freeing, or often symbolic or literal "deaths" that move one into a different circle of experience. MEntity: Once one is free from the confines of one pattern, the greater patterns can be seen, or Freedom arises. MEntity: That was part of our logic in associating these. Maureen: Great answer Michael. I really like it when context is broadened, it opens up our "view". Thanks MEntity]: Does this make sense to you, then? Maureen: yes it does MEntity: That is the teaching and lessons of the Old Soul: Context. MEntity: Context is "everything." MEntity: The same thing takes on completely different meaning when context is changed. A man with a gun on his back, aiming up at a man with a knife is different from a man on his feet in a mask with a gun aimed at a bank teller. MEntity: The gun is still the same, no matter where it is, but the context changes everything about the story of that gun. MEntity: The same can be said of any object, person, experience, relationship, etc. And this is the crux of our teaching. YOU - in context. The whole of you. In context.
