December 6, 2001 Troy Tolley, Channel Centers and Body Types Note from Janet: Although the intent for the topic was Centers and Body Types, no discussion of Body Types occurred. [Michael_Entity] We are here. Hello to all of you. We will begin with the Energy Report as we see it for the weeks of December 9 through the 22nd. It is, of course, not a coincidence that many of you have begun discussing the properties and personal experiences of the Centers, as many of you are shifting into next year’s basic Centering at this time. Though a year’s “Overleaves” are not defined entirely and are not static at any given time, there is an overall set that does appear to have influence over varying levels of consciousness, at least symbolically. In the case of Older Souls, that set of influences can begin to take place in the few months before the new year. We will also note an unusual phenomenon that is occurring for all of you: currently, in such a short time span between them, another larger Nexus Shift occurs. It is not uncommon for great shifts to occur throughout a year, but another shift is beginning on the 10th, and another in January/February, while this is all following the large shift in November. These shifts with little “breaks” between them are creating a great amount of shifting in levels of Energy among your Overleaves and your ability to participate in the world. There appear to be distinct days when your energy seems quite inspired and above normal, while the next few will find you seeming to be locked in an infinite stream of constricting thoughts and low energy. For some this will feel like “limbo,” while for others this can feel “manic.” The Center for the next year, at this time, appears to be Moving, with bursts of Higher Moving. Unless you are Moving Centered, yourself, this is going to begin to feel like a time of shifting into OBVIOUS manifestations of what you are DOING. (We remind you that our Energy Reports are not predictions, they are merely comments on patterns and how you might be able to use them or dismiss them.) Having a field of Moving Centered Energy as the context for a period of time can mean a great deal of attention would be coming to the body and its relationship to its environment. We are speaking of its Physical environment, which can translate into a range from its sources of stimulation, affection, and activity, to its ability to use the finer energies that make up and create the Physical Plane. Some of you may begin to pull out your old copies of teachings which focus on the concepts of “creating your own reality” and take a more active approach to reality than usual. While others may begin to feel overwhelmed by the “responsibility” that the Moving Centers imply while Physical. Besides the fact of what you call “the holidays,” a stronger and stronger desire to be with those whom you care for and feel part of will begin to be a priority. If these basic trends continues and the next year continues with the Moving Centered theme, we will be able to comment more accurately on how it might manifest. For now, a primary theme appears to be those points we just mentioned, along with a heightened awareness of your food intake and ability to literally move (health). We will conclude the report here and take any questions about it before we discuss the Centers. [Kathryn] Many of us, myself included, have been feeling very drained and tired or just down lately. Is this the reaction to this energy report influence? [Michael_Entity] We don't believe the Energy Report itself has any influence as such, but the Energy, itself, we are reporting about may very well be what you are responding/reacting to. For those who have any kind of health deficiencies, however minute, the Moving Center will markedly “force” the body into a position that is more inclined to facilitate recovery. This can be sleep, mental distraction, high activity, anger, etc., but it’s point is to facilitate recovery. Another important factor to consider is the inherent nature of any Nexus having a sedating effect on the Human body as realities shift and creativity on another level is affecting the body. You do “create reality,” and that still uses energy. Most of the time, that energy is being held preciously by the Personality for reasons it doesn't even understand. The sedation and “tired phase” allows the “grip” to loosen and your reality can then free up some energy for changes to be made. Most of you have your Personalities quite in charge of your lives, even if it doesn't quite “know” what to do. When a shift is needed and the Personality is choosing to work with Essence, the Personality will gladly concede and “take a nap.” At some point, in some lifetime, a shift will happen wherein the Personality and Essence are aligned enough that control is not shifted from one to the other, but is shared. If there are no other questions on the Energy Report, we will discuss CENTERING. We feel there is no need to introduce the Centering to you, as many of you are already fairly studied in this area of our teaching. We will, however, respond to all of your questions about this area so as to clarify and help with the application of the information. [MaryBV] How does centering affect memory? [Michael_Entity] ALL Centers have their form of Memory in storage and retrieval. The Intellect stores and retrieves memory in the form of Thoughts, Ideas, and is Visually interpreted. The Emotional memories are stored and retrieved in the form what are commonly understood as Feelings, Emotions, and are Aurally interpreted. The Moving stores and retrieves its memories in the forms of Health, Activity, and are Sensually interpreted. Each Center does affect how events are remembered; especially in the mixture of the Centering with the Part. The Intellect affects the memory with its level of beliefs and justifications; the Emotions affect memory with its sentimentality and attachments; the Moving affects the memory through its levels of vitality and productivity at the time. For each of these examples above, they are only part of how each Center may affect memory, and those factors always stem from the PRESENT (retrieval), not how or what was stored. Each Center is involved in Memory, of course, but the habitual Centering will affect how a fragment's memory is used habitually. Each Ordinal Center is referencing memory of the current lifetime and physicality. If more information outside of that realm is required or resonating, it is then drawn through the Higher of that Center. The Instinctive Center is the communication medium between the Cardinal and Ordinal. Since the Instinct/Assimilation is usually maintaining the task of protection of the body, most memory filtered there is decidedly fearful or not. This is why most long-standing memories are either decidedly joyful or painful. We can continue to extrapolate on this topic, but we will ask if we are answering your question appropriate to your intent. [MaryBV] Well, I should have asked also how the role plays into this, but that is probably a topic for a whole discussion. [Michael_Entity] The Roles play little part in how memory is used or affected, since each lifetime sets a new design for the body and the Body/Personality is the tool for memory. The Essence's choice of Overleaves is the most direct impact. Since Time is not a factor for Essence, it does not have the need for “memory” as it is experienced on the Physical Plane. [MaryBV] I see, so what accounts for smell/taste, etc., in memory? [Michael_Entity] Every Cell and Atom in your body has the ability to “remember,” which means it has the ability to re-create. When the Personality or Body calls on a memory to be reconstructed, it will call on these minute parts of self to participate. It is of no mystery that you can recall a scene in a movie, which is Visual, but it is no more a mystery for the other senses to have that ability to reconstruct, as well. [WickedBear] Could you discuss the fundamental differences between the two action centers? [Michael_Entity] The most fundamental difference is in that the Ordinal pertains to the immediate environment of the Personality and Body, while the Cardinal pertains to all that encompasses that. The Moving Center, then, would govern and process the events of the actual, Physical Body and its health, activity, manipulation of environment, etc. The Higher Moving Center would then govern and process those similar things, but as they pertain to larger patterns that include everything pertaining to the Essence. It could be said that the Moving Center is the manifestation/expression of that particular Personality's part in the Higher Moving tapestry of the Essence. [Elf] Is the Part of Center chosen about the same time as the Centering? And what is most influential in that choice? [Michael_Entity] Centering is chosen by the age of 3 in most cases, while the Part/Trap is a habit by the age of 7 (approximately). The most influential aspect of that choice is in the major theme then settled on for the lifetime as to how to process events. The Center/Part becomes the Body's primary strength and challenge, and sets the stage for relationships, health, and beliefs for the majority of the life. Depending on your Centering and Part, you will find that your PART/TRAP becomes the defining obstacle to hurdle in coming to peace with a lifetime. If the balance can be called upon for any Center, regardless of habit, then a great freedom is experienced within the lifetime. The first examination of this is in the 4th Internal Monad when the Part is either simply a Part, or continues to be the Trap. Most will find as the life progresses that the Part becomes the Trap, the more they ignore the need for that third Center to be incorporated. As part of the process for finding that balance, the neglected Center will eventually require attention. For those lacking in the Moving Center, then health, prosperity, material security, physical need for affection and validation can become stages for its balance. For those lacking in the Intellectual Center, then over-questioning, overwhelm, isolation, indecisiveness, and unacknowledged dependence on others for direction are examples of where the imbalance can show up. For those lacking in the Emotional Center, then alienation, hypercriticism, unacknowledged issues of rejection, can tend to be some of the arenas for balance. [Elf] Thank you. So the Part/Trap of Center is then somewhat a part of the Life Task? [Michael_Entity] Yes, the Centering/Part are intrinsically linked to the Tasks of the Life. Centering habits tend to define how the Personality uses its 4 “pillars,” of which the Life Task (True Work), is one of those pillars. Your True Rest is directly linked to the use of your neglected Center. Your True Work is directly relating to the Goal. The Centering/Part is not inherently a challenge to your Life Task, but it is a powerful definition of the path. And with that, we will conclude. Good Night.
ENERGY REPORT JUNE 2011 2011 Overleaves are: ROLE: PRIEST (emphasized all year) CENTER: MOVING (emphasized all year) GOAL: FLOW (emphasized Jan - Mar) MODE: CAUTION (emphasized Apr - Jun) ATTITUDE: PRAGMATIST sliding to Cynic and Skeptic (emphasized Jul - Sep) CHIEF FEATURES: Impatience/Martyrdom (emphasized Oct - Dec) MAY began the annual shift in Platforms among fragments on the Physical Plane. Sometimes this goes smoothly, and sometimes this brings great agitation. At some point before June, most fragments go through a 3 day to 2 week review of the progress made on their Platform for the ending cycle, and begin calibrating the Platform for the new cycle. There are various cycles for various layers of Platforms, so we refer here only to the annual Platform. The yearly Platform is a general theme of interest that is generated by Essence, and not by Personality, and so can be a conscious or subconscious focus for the Personality. The more one manifests Essence, the more one tends to see the patterns that are a part of the annual Platform. (more on platforms from 2008 http://our.truthloveenergy.com/topic/39-michael-speaks-april-2008-platforms/) However, the 2010 - 2011 Platform Cycle did not allow much room for exploration of Platforms, at least on a conscious level. This has led to many fragments experiencing a phase of agitation as the shift in Platforms happens, much like the agitation or panic one may have when handed yet another task when a previous task is incomplete. For those experiencing the agitation and distraction, we will remind you that Platforms are not tasks to complete, but are simply specific perspectives through which to interpret experiences over a given period of time. There are many who do not know their Platform, or what a Platform is, and they manage just fine. For the older soul, however, we know that there is an intuitive sensitivity to the fact that there are various layers of “you” seeking to accomplish and experience various themes. That sensitivity and intuition will alert you to those various levels that are being unfulfilled, but it will help you to put that at ease if you realize that this alert is not to be used for self-punishment or disappointment, but is an alert that is no different from a reminder that you are hungry. When you are caught up in your day, and “forget” to eat, there will come a time when your body reminds you to eat. This is the same on an internal, intuitive level, when it comes to various levels of intentions to fulfill. It would make little sense to be distracted or upset with having forgotten to eat, so the focus would simply move to getting something to eat. In terms of fulfilling Platforms, it makes as little sense to distract yourself away from moving on to the immediate intentions for fulfillment. Turn to the tasks at hand, to the life in front of you, and tend to the patterns and themes of life from where you are, rather than halting any sense of progress, or resisting movement forward, in an attempt to “make up” for “lost time.” As Platforms begin to take shape over June, this sense of intuitive agitation would most likely pass, even for the most distracted of students. June also marks the final month of emphasis on Caution Mode, and Relationships. Many students are in the process of looking at relationships through the filter of Caution Mode, moving some key relationships from a negative state of Phobia (distance or paralysis from fear) and into a positive state of Deliberation (a conscious, intentional relationship). To the extent that this renewal of relationship has been accomplished, is the extent to which June would feel like “free time” that can be used for creativity, play and enjoyment, with very little on the agenda. For many of our students, June may simply feel like time passing, or be a rather insignificant month in the scheme of things, except in terms of world events, which may be the focus for those not focusing on personal relationships. However, for those who still struggle with revitalizing, recalibrating, and reuniting within these key relationships, June may begin to feel a kind of “back against the wall” position regarding them. These key relationships would probably reach a breaking point, falling out of one’s more immediate circle of intimacy, or accepting a move further out into a more social or acquaintance position. The key for moving any of these key relationships back into a positive space is to do so with INTENTION, or Deliberately. These relationships will not heal themselves, and waiting for one or the other to do the work will probably not work. Doing the work of healing these key relationships must be considered your own work to do, if these relationships are of any importance to you. Taking into consideration the other Overleaves for the year may help in those relationships, as well: Goal of Flow; Attitude of Pragmatism, and the Chief Features of Impatience and Martyrdom. To translate: these key relationships may have fallen into Inertia, the negative pole of Flow, and are at a relative standstill. Your efforts to heal them would help move them back into Freedom, the positive pole. These key relationships cannot be helped by looking at them through Dogmatism, the negative pole of Pragmatism, but can be helped tremendously by streamlining your perspective through Practicality, or Efficiency, the positive pole. In other words, cutting out all of the “bullshit,” speculation, and imaginary hurts, however justified the feelings, would help these relationships tremendously. And finally, these relationships are not constrained by Time or Space, which are factors in the fears related to Impatience and Martyrdom. The fact that Time and/or Space may have come between you is nothing to fear. It is simply a part of the Physical Plane, and part of the experiences of being Human. Even the best of relationships must contend with distance in time and space, and so do the worst. Remember that Caution is about the refining of Thoughts as a means to fulfill a Relationship or Goal, and so what you THINK is vital here. Letting the go of the speculative is vital. Helpful thoughts over JUNE might be: 1) IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU THOUGHT, BUT ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK Bringing your thinking back into the present does not mean forgetting the past, or diminishing your hurts, but about empowering you to create something better than what you remember. If this energy report resonates with you, and you choose to heal a relationship, then what you think NOW is far more important than what you remember, or what you thought in the past. 2) SAVING OR HEALING A RELATIONSHIP DOES NOT MEAN TAKING THE BLAME Blame is never helpful in healing any relationship, internally or externally. Blame is a distraction from what one CAN do, feel, and see. Even if blame is accepted by the blamed, it anchors the relationship in the past in a way that it can never truly evolve beyond. However, freeing a relationship from the emphasis of Blame can free a great deal of energy and inspiration to be used for what one CAN do, feel, and see, and so the efforts to heal that relationship are far more effective. Once the hurdle of Blame is overcome, then the process of taking responsibility is also freed for both parties, which is usually far more satisfying for all involved. Encouraging another to take responsibility for his or her part in disappointment, failure, hurt, etc in a relationship cannot be done through Blame. Responsibility can only be accomplished through awareness, and if the emphasis is simply on one party being “right,” then the process of responsibility on all parts is lost to the priority of simply being “right.” Taking the first step in being responsible helps set precedence for the other involved to do the same. This applies to relationships within, as well. Rather than blaming the self for disappointments, failures, etc, focus on taking first (second, third, etc) steps of responsibility, and then use that freed energy previous used for blame, and use it for the necessary healing. DATES OF INTEREST JUNE 11th - a divergence Nexus with an emphasis on keeping relationships in, or shifting them out of personal, meaningful inner circles JUNE 24th - another convergence Nexus with an emphasis on potential, new or renewed relationships, as well as the shift of emphasis from Caution Mode and into that of the Pragmatist Attitude
