  1. This session has been retrieved from the old Yahoo group. May 4, 2000 CHAT TRANSCRIPT: Open Floor 050400 Channeled through Otterly Blue; Edited by MARY BV; Moderated by Sandra Dent Note: Otterly = Troy Tolley MEntity: We are here. One moment. Hello to you all. <MaryBV> Could Michael please elaborate on the "three distinct circles" of people supporting each other in our Trueview community? Who is in each circle please, and in which example mentioned (circus in Italy, Medieval troupe) did they live? Note: MaryBV is referring to content delivered in this earlier session: Michael Speaks: March 2000 MEntity: The "three distinct circles" were more an indication of the THEMES each carry to "the list" in terms of connections with others, but some of you were involved in all three circles. The three circles we indicated revolved around: A) being in a group that traveled; B) being in a group that stayed behind; C) being in a group that was welcoming travelers. We will elaborate to the extent we can in this forum. Terri, Barry, Otterly, MaryBV, Anne, Arinna, Carole, Glenn, David MP, and several others bring the theme of the"travelers" circle. Carole, Hector, Barry, Kath, Sharon(az), Glenn and several others carry the themes of those who remained rooted as home for the travelers (we realize a few are mentioned twice). Ludmila, Anne, Kath, Sandra, Otterly, Hector, Cyprus, Arinna, and several others are linked to the welcome of travelers. The second circle mentioned are the ones who remained behind while others traveled from them. There are several more, as indicated, from your list that have links to these three circles, but this forum is not conducive to an exhaustive scan of the entire history of each. The traveling circus in Italy is more of what would be linked to the first circle described, and those involved. The Medieval Troupe was more of a welcoming circle, and thus links to those in the third circle described (which had its traveling, but not nearly as widely as the "circus"). We will look into this further as we go, but this is as deep as we may go here. We have offered to Otterly to have an entire session geared toward this exploration for those interested. This will be arranged. AFTER CHAT CLARIFICATION: The Medieval "Troupe" addressed here, and the traveling during Medieval times as pagans we mentioned in our first exchange about this are different lives and time frames altogether. <Arinna> I know it's a big subject, but I was wondering if you could speak a little about astral projection. More specifically, why would someone feel pain in their astral body, as I have twice now? MEntity: The Astral Body is merely the manifest energy of your emotional plane, in the same way that your Physical Body is the manifest energy of your Physical Plane. While incarnated, there is no real way to separate the Astral Body from the Physical unless through death. There is always a connection. Therefore, any "pain" in your emotional plane (your Astral Body) is easily translated into "real pain" through the senses of the current body. Though the pain is being more delicately and specifically able to be located by your heightened intuition as being in your Astral Body (which is valid, we see), it still affects the physical, even if only felt as an 'echo.' Any emotional pain not dealt with when you are IN the body will be more magnificently magnified when OUT of the body. This is why the Astral Plane and merging of the Entity is such a terrifying and shocking experience for many. There are many, especially those of Scholar influence, who "save" their emotional realm of processing for the Astral, assuming it will "hurt less." That idea is not valid. We believe an easy way for you to comprehend the reality of this pain as being real is to compare it to any dream that has awakened you, distracted you for a day, etc. It has real impact. It is not uncommon. <Sandra51> Would it be accurate to say that many of us in this room are experiencing 4th Dimension more than usual then? MEntity: There is much speculation as to what Dimensions are, in terms of numbers. If you speak of the fourth Dimension in terms of transcending barriers involving Time, then yes. As many of you progress through your Soul Ages, and as the general Soul Age matures on your planet, there are more fields of energy, or dimensions, that become accessible. In many of your cases, you are presently struggling with the concepts of Time and your place in it as Sentience. During the Young Soul stages of your planet, it was valid and comfortable to live within a linear time frame. During the maturing of Essences comes the maturing of "Time" (which is an initial byproduct of Sentience). In that maturing of your concepts of Time, there comes a 'time' when it means less in terms of past and future, but more importantly in terms of NOW. You no longer see your lives unfolding like a line from start to finish, but as a spherical place wherein your presence is more "Alive" when PRESENT. It is not a new truth, but one that is catching on. Pockets of you, individually and in groups, are finally experimenting with this concept. We do not say this lightly. Many of you are literally losing your intuitive compasses in terms of your futures due to your seeking a presence in the moment. This is highly disconcerting to you, and yes, will create in effect, a 'stutter.' High preoccupation with security and planning is an indication of your possibly being a pioneer in living seriously within what is called 4th Dimensional thinking/living. We have never seen any fragments adjust to this dimensional flux with ease. It will uproot all that has been "counted on" before, or create rifts internally between what you thought was appropriate living and what you know as trust in life. For those fragments taking that route, we have only seen surrender to be the key in that process of adjustment. You will always be safe. <Hector22> The astral seems to have different qualities. For example, there seemed to be a honeycomb soul arrangement at a lower area (inside the earth)? Would these be incubating hive souls for another cycle or a distortion in perception? MEntity: There are no distortions in perceptions Astrally. It is what you want to see, or at least what you have allowed yourself to see. The fact that Hell exists and is quite valid has no bearing on those who will never "see" it. We see this description you shared to be quite creative and holds more clues about the perceiver than the perceived. The Astral is not literal. This is not to say the Astral does not have different qualities. That much is true. We will say, at least in terms of Souls, there is no "incubation" that we know of. There is a "holding area" where all who are choosing to incarnate make their arrangements, choose Entities, Essence Twins, etc., before a Cycle begins, but this is not "inside the earth." <Anne> Do you, Michael Entity, have what is referred to as an Essence Twin, as in another causal entity? MEntity: Yes, all entities have one; that is the merging factor within the Causal, the seeking of our Entity Twin. <nemo999> What is Michael's idea of a good education for children MEntity: Though this would require a much longer opportunity with you to answer this, we can summarize in that we seek to reform education on the planet through our Teaching. In at least one parallel we will experience this impact. It is what you might call our only "task." We believe early recognition and personal validation of Roles and subsequent schooling based on internal longings from an early age is a more empowering and healthy route to education. Much of what is taught between the "grades" of 5 through 12 is pointless to the life. It would be at this point, or earlier if the child indicated, that a specific vocation, skill, or otherwise, be available for the child to learn. For a high frequency Artisan with a goal of Growth, Passion Mode, to be taught in the same setting as a low frequency Warrior with a goal of Flow, Observation Mode, simply means only one of the two will "learn." <nemo999> This program will not sell to the public. MEntity: We do not intend to "sell" it. We already have our Agreements with those in position to make a difference. They are providing alternatives at an ever-increasing rate. It is seen as"alternative" presently, but the views of children are changing, along with your schooling concepts. The schooling system as you have known it for some time has only been a means for housing children for certain hours of the day for Young Soul agendas to be tended. This was appropriate for that Cycle. School shootings, violence, pregnancy, drugs, and media hype is all contributing to the Mature Soul reevaluation of what it means to be in public school. A reform is inevitable, but we do not know in which direction it will go in all probabilities. <Hector22> Is Lyra a system that has contact with us? MEntity: Yes, for a small portion of the population. Most of that contact is musically or Astrally. <cyclist> Is sexual congress present in the astral, or is this strictly a physical plane experience? MEntity: What you experience as "sexual congress" while physical is but a portion of what "sex" actually is. The Astral is highly sexual as is each plane progressively. We define sex as"moving in unison with something other than self." Some of you know this experience, with or without genitalia involved. The majestic experiences of seeing the sky on certain dusks or dawns are a highly sexual experience in larger terms. Many of your sexual dreams are more "accurate" than waking sex. The "closer" to Tao we all move, the more sexually, uninhibitedly, we share. <MaryBV> Could Michael expand a bit on the topic of seeking their Entity Twins? Are they waiting for the Twin to cycle off? What sort of work is involved in merging with the Twin? MEntity: It is the task of each Entity while residing on the Causal to Teach the physical and astral planes. Every Entity will teach "from here." In the process of that teaching, causal reality is comprehended, meaning that we discover and assimilate the truth of "cause and effect," even if our terms here are limited. In each Entity's particular "style" it will teach fragments about choice, creativity, thought, motion, feeling, etc., all as related to Causality. The Lower Level of the Causal is our "internal" comprehension of this. The Mid-Causal is our "externalization" of that. The Higher Causal is when we merge with our Twin. The merging will not occur until all fragments within each Entity have comprehended their own causality, along with the causality of all other fragments within their own Entity. This then allows a perception that can identify our Entity Twin. Though each Entity already "knows" its Entity Twin, while on the Causal that knowing seeks a level that is grander than any of us "expected." In the same way you each "forget" everything when you are born physical, so does the Entity "forget" much when merged Astrally and beginning the process, and again, when Causal. We believe the Causal Plane is the last of that forgetting. To make this more tangible for some of you, since it may be confusing that we "know" our Entity Twin, yet seek it. Consider when you have "just met" someone and "know" the reality of your deeper and more profound history beyond this life, yet never act upon that. It is similar. Our Entity Twin is Mid-Causal as well. We will close now. Good night.

    7 Facets of Mastery

    [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: November 2009] [Question] What are the 7 levels of "true" mastery on the side of truth? …is there a group collective consciousness occurring, as, well, as, a …collective consciousness of all the assortment of 7 levels of a fragment …(where one can tap into going back to an infant – to the current manifested age, …and, even forward to the ultimate return to the tao) consciously, and, unconsciously- …as, if past-present-future and now, are occurring in The Pivot of The NOW ? or, does love/and, energy also factor into the sum total (since, it is a trine/or trinity) 3 aspects of a cadre/entity? [Michael Entity] The 7 stages of Mastery would be the same for all fragments, and this might be described as the process that is the set of Overleaves called GOALS, or in words that are more relevant, such as Focus, Refinement, Commitment, Flexibility, Affection, Meaning, and Embodiment. We also add that these are facets, not stages. The experience of a fragment within the structure of Time can use “the now” as a pivotal point for accessing future and past, though not necessarily in any literal way. The experience of Time is an Emotional reality, so when one “goes back in time,” one can affect the present by altering the interpretation an experience of the past. It is true that there is “only the now,” and that it is a pivotal power point. In our teachings, we simply use the word “choice” in place of “the now,” as Choice is the active element in the experience of time, past, future, and present.
  3. NYC MICHAEL SPEAKS LIVE: on Death & Dying March 12, 2011 Note from Janet: This session was transcribed by Bobby from the original video of the session. MEntity: Ok, give us a moment to settle in and we'll begin. Ok, Hello to each of you, as we come through, bear with us as we adjust to Troy's opening up to us a little bit more than he usually has to in his day to day channeling of us since it has been awhile since he's gone into a full trance for us so our communication may be halted or skewed in some way that will need correction and we will try to catch those as we communicate. We understand that your discussion subject of today is the afterlife or the process of dying and experience in between lives and we'll try to explain this to you in a way that will not only use our teaching as a map to interpret that experience but if we can we will try to do it in a way that is applicable and not just something to ponder. In other words, knowing certain people in your life that may have died or may die and understanding that process from this exchange with us, may bring some peace to yourself and to the one who has died in a way that might not have been there without this information. It might also come in handy for each of you if you find yourselves in the process of facing your own deaths. However, knowing this or not knowing it will not make much difference because once you die you will have to deal with it anyway. No matter what your beliefs are, no matter what your philosophies are, your consciousness does continue beyond what you recognize as you in your current life. It does not end, it only evolves. The consciousness that you will identify with though beyond this particular version of you is much broader than the you that you recognize in your day to day life and so there is some adjustment period to that. In the same way if you will you'll have to at some point embrace the totality of your lifetime as yourself as you age. It is not much different in that regard. In other words, at 50 years old you still have experience being a 10 year old. And part of the process of living a fulfilled life and having transited all of the Internal Monads to a successful degree, which we will get to in a moment, we will elaborate on how they are involved, in order to have that sense of fulfillment, that sense of wholeness at the age of 50, we are just picking a random age, you must remember the 10 year old within you. You must embrace that. You must acknowledge that part of you has existed and had its own perspectives that have become integrated in who you are at 50 years old. And the same applies beyond this life as a form of consciousness that explores the physical plane as yourself in this lifetime and as all of the other selves that you've been in other lifetimes. The process of that consciousness that existed throughout all of those, goes through stages of development or evolving towards wholeness and that evolution is the process of remembering or integrating all of the variations or all of the personalities that it has been. The experience of your death is often dictated by where you are in the process of your internal monads. All of the internal monads are not properly or appropriately processed during a lifetime so some for instance may be stuck in the 2nd Internal Monad and even at the age of 50 or 60 when that individual dies will have an afterlife that is often relative to the fact that he or she is stuck in the 2nd Internal Monad and the same thing applies to the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th. Just to recap and to have it on record as part of the information relative to the topic, we will go over the 7 Internal Monads although we know that most of you are aware of them in our teaching. The 1st one of course is birth, the process of staying alive. The 2nd is your autonomy marked most often by your realization that you can walk or that you're independently mobile from your creator which is your parents or the identified caretakers for you in that lifetime. The 3rd is your independence which is often marked by your rebellion as a teenager in the process of becoming your own personal resource within the lifetime. The 4th is your manifestation of Essence or your becoming yourself and that is the process of relinquishing all of the imprinting that has been imposed upon you by your caretakers, your school, your culture, your society, and deciding from that pool of imprinting and influence on your nature what is true to you and then building upon that. It's basically the process of returning to a sense of innocence and enthusiasm for your life and liking yourself. The 5th Internal Monad is then the process of stripping away even your own sense of identity in the sense that you no longer are attached to who you by your own definition have decided you are and you recreate yourself. This is the recreation stage. This usually happens in what is often referred to as the senior citizen stages of life and this is where you strip yourself of everything you have thought you were and you build from scratch. And this does not mean that you lose everything that you thought you were but that you are not identified with it any longer and you learn how to play with the life that you've created. Where the 4th Internal Monad might be described as your process of discovering or creating your sense of purpose, the 5th Internal Monad would be the process of creating or discovering your sense of play. The 6th Internal Monad is the realization, the profound realization, that you are going to die and quite often includes the onset of what will kill you. In some cases this is obvious and in some cases this is not... and the acceptance of the fact that you will die, the acceptance your mortality. It could be said that the 6th Internal Monad then is your stripping away of the lifetime to allow room for the broader consciousness that you are as you exit the lifetime. Then of course, the 7th Internal Monad is the exiting of the lifetime. Birth and death may seem to be a given as they are correlations to the 1st and 7th Internal Monads but just because you are born does not mean completed or successfully processed the birth monad and just because you died does not mean you completed or processed the 7th Internal monad. Those are just markers for those internal monads and to die does not necessarily mean that you have accepted that you are dead just like being born does not mean that you accept that you are alive. Based on where you are in the process of those personal rites of passage, those 7 Internal Monads, has an effect on what you experience directly after the lifetime. So that if you are in the 2nd Internal Monad, stuck there for the life which would basically mean that you are dependent, co-dependent to a great degree, and having difficulty separating from those who you might think are responsible for you. This would affect how you process your afterlife. So that when you die, your 1st experiences will be the completion or the attempt to complete or process that 2nd Internal Monad. Because what happens is, in every single lifetime you will pick up where you left off in the process of the 7 Internal Monads. So that if you are stuck in the 2nd Internal Monad in this life, in the next life you will catch up to that point. You will still go through the 1st and 2nd Internal Monad but you must move beyond that, into the 3rd Internal Monad, or beyond if possible and if not then the next life you build upon that. Because those 7 Internal Monads but be properly and successfully transited in order for you to be able to move from one soul age level to the next. And this is not a cosmic rule in place, it is simply our way of interpreting the process and that is a consistent process that those 7 rites of passage must be integrated and processed fully before you can move to the next level of awareness or integration that were were just describing earlier. If you are stuck in the 3rd Internal Monad then of course that would more than likely the experience that many have described as the dichotomy as heaven and hell or some push pull that causes the consciousness to have to go through a process of rebellion and fight with itself after the life to come into it's own. And then of course, that process is over, when that process is over, the consciousness can then begin to plan the next life. But those initial moments or years depending on your perspective and what version of time you are translating the experience through are dictated by the personality's experience of the life, the overall consciousness that is your Essence. In other words, just because you have died so many times before does not make the next death an extension of those previous deaths. It is relative to the personality in the current lifetime. Your personality gets to decide what it experiences after it dies. It is not always a sudden realization that you are more than what you thought you were. That is a process after dying. Now before we continue on, we will stop here for a moment to ask if you have any questions about what's been shared so far. Question: If you die and you've only gotten up to the 3rd Internal Monad does that mean that now you're faced with the death monad, you're not going to accept that you're dead? I thought you said the completion of that monad means you've accepted that you're dead. But if you're only gotten up to the 3rd monad in your life, how does that, what does that mean? MEntity: Yes, this is where it gets a little complex in terms of how the levels are processed but we will try to explain it to you that as you progress through the internal monads and you have a personality that is stuck in the 3rd internal monad and it's afterlife is a process of completing that 3rd internal monad or at least processing as much of it as possible, in linear terms, that effort contributes to next lifetime. However, the personality that did not move beyond that remains "alive" in it's own time frame so that when there is finally a personality that does complete the 7th Internal Monad, then it can go back and collect all the personalities from that soul age level. Until then, that personality is for lack of terms, stuck in its own process. Does this makes sense to you? Question: The personality doesn't die with the body? MEntity: No. The personality that is designed as a part of the body dies but the template that the body was created from, which came first, the template came first, continues. When your Essence designed your personality before a lifetime starts, it starts with one of the overleaves and that becomes the core of that personality. For instance, if your Essence decides to choose the Attitude first that Attitude becomes its own form of consciousness around which the rest of the overleaves are constructed. And then, those overleaves are a part of what contributes to the genetics of, or what is activated in the body that is created for the lifetime. Each body is a pool of genes and the overleaves are what plucks out or activates particular genes or DNA that becomes who you are in a lifetime. And so, while that physical counterpart does die, the template or overleaves do not. To make it easier to understand because we sense that you are not fully grasping what we are saying or we are not conveying it clearly enough, think of the concept of a soul that is not the same thing that what we use to reference your Essence so that soul inhabits the body and that soul continues on after the lifetime is over and those could be described as fragments of the Essence. Of course we would not like that to be a terminology or a part of our teaching but it is true that your Essence fragments itself in the same way that the Cadres fragment themselves and the Essence collects those fragments back up in the same way that the Cadre collects its fragments back up. So the you that you are here will extend beyond this lifetime and will be collected with all the other versions of your Essence to make up a whole that is the consciousness that you are. Is there another way that we could describe this that might make it easier to understand or are we being clear? Question: So you're using the word Soul synonymously with personality and its a fragment of your Essence? MEntity: Yes, we just threw that in as a means to help you to see that the personality or the template that activates the personality is a fragment of your Essence and therefore has its own version of consciousness. Question: And it lives on past the body... that is a new concept and I've never heard of it. MEntity: Yes, and this is why, and this may help you to comprehend. This is why there can be "hauntings" while the Essence continues to evolve because the personality remains behind as the haunting and the Essence continues to evolve and once it gets to a point where it is evolved enough it will go back and collect the personality that has remained behind so to speak as a part of that haunting. So just because there is a haunting does not mean that the Essence that is associated with that particular lifetime or personality that might be the haunting is stuck... it does not mean that. It continues. It has its own management system for all of the lifetimes and is not dictated by one personality. If the Essence evolution was dictated by any individual personality, it would be very difficult to get past the 1st lifetime. But at the end of every soul age level, all of the personalities relative to that level are collected, integrated, and the new level is begun. If this is new information it is only because the questions have not been asked. And this is why we qualified the response with the fact that it is a bit complicated because it means that you exist in all of these various forms in microcosmic and macrocosmic fashion so to speak and that can sometimes be difficult to understand. Any other questions? Question: I had one more question on that same topic. So then is it possible for your soul who is stuck here as a ghost we'll say, is it possible for you to reincarnate while there is some part of you stuck someplace else? MEntity: Yes. Your Essence is a vast energy source. And, all of the lifetimes and all of the parallel versions of one lifetime, all of the concurrents which are when you incarnating in multiple bodies on the planet as well as your past and future lifetime, all only take what would be the equivalent of approximately 1% of the focus for your Essence. All of those combined. So that gives you some indication of the vastness of your Essence and why it can manage so many variations of itself and allow for the personalities to evolve on their own time frame in a way that does not interfere with those because its got its own higher perspective. Question: See I knew that, but I think what's new is the separation of the two terms essence and soul. I always thought of them as being synonymous. And also of the concept of the personality outliving the body... that's new, right? MEntity: Yes, we would suggest not being hung up on Soul versus Essence terminology. We only offered that as one way of differentiating between that which is involved in the activation of the personality versus that which created it. But if it helps you to keep things clearer, then keeping with our terminology, it is not amiss to describe it as a fragment of your Essence or as you put it, the personality exceeds the body. Those would be accurate ways of describing it as well. The term Soul can be interchanged with the term Essence but it's a highly charged word so we usually don't usually use it. Question from the chat room: So what is taking place in the time of waiting for the level to complete with the personalities? MEntity: Well, we would like to remind you that time outside of the physical plane is a little bit different in its experience and becomes even more relevant to the individuals personalities perception. Time has an emotional factor. It is an emotional experience therefore the Astral plane where you go in between lives or more accurately we would say you focus between lives is an emotional plane. And therefore, because that becomes the basis of experience, time is extremely flexible and those who are in between lives and the personalities who are "waiting" do not have the same perception of time while you are waiting on the physical plane. So the lifetime, we will give the example that is completely random, randomly chosen, the lifetime that might have been stuck at the 3rd Internal Monad and died will go through its process and contribute to the overall evolution of the Essence. But once its done and by done we mean has had its own version of a realization it can do whatever it wants. And so the personality can realize it has a completely new world with which to create life and it literally lives out another life or as many as it wants on the astral plane. These are purely, for lack of a better term, entertainment or novelty lifetimes in the sense that they do not contribute a great amount of evolution to the Essence. Because once the realization is there that anything can be created in the astral plane which is very malleable and emotions and your thoughts manifest much quicker, then the process is not met with much challenge. So for instance, if there was a part of you that thought you were going to burn in hell when it died, it will burn in hell as long as it thinks it's supposed to and then it will eventually realize that that's not necessary. And on the other side of what that personality though it was suppose to experience relative to where it evolved within the lifetime, it will then be greeted by those fragments who are familiar to it and oriented toward the astral plane so that it then can enjoy itself while it waits. Question: so it's like a really fun waiting room? MEntity: Yes, but not quite. We caution on too much emphasis on the term "wait" because the experience is not one of waiting. It is not quite that experience of time that you perceive it to be from here. But it's process of waiting can give it the opportunity to explore many different ideas and creative endeavors and eventually find an interest in its own origins and its own part in the process of Essence's evolution and becomes integrated eventually. The personality that ends up fulfilling the 7th Internal Monad and all of them within the single lifetime does not have that same "waiting period" because its lifetime became that same process that the others did post lifetime. Because the more consciousness that you bring to your physical plane experiences and to your creation of your lifetime the more Essence is involved and that level of integration of consciousness within the lifetime, having the physical lifetime be the meeting ground between the tangible and the intangible or the personality and the Essence, is the same process that all the other personalities had to go through while they waited while that final personality in that soul age level did it within the lifetime. Question: I have a question. So if, let's say you're at, I mean you're at your soul age and your soul level and in a lifetime does that, goes all the way through, the next lifetime will that also go all the way through or does it automatically bump you up to the next level? MEntity: Re-ask your question. Question: Sorry, so let's say my last, we'll use me, let's say my last lifetime went through all the way and the seamstress completed the 7th Internal Monad. So this lifetime, the one after that, would I also then complete all the way through the 7th level or 7th Internal Monad because she did or... MEntity: Not if it's the first lifetime of the next level... Question: But what if it's not? Well I mean it is for me. MEntity: Once you have had one personality transit all of the 7 Internal Monads successfully, any subsequent lifetime can then do so if it focuses on the perspective of that same soul age level. So while someone may have completed the 7th Internal Monad and completed the 3rd level of the Old Soul age the following lifetime can then focus and more easily accomplish all of those 7 Internal MOnads if the lifetime remains with a perspective of the 3rd level of the Soul age. Even though technically, it is 4th level Old Soul at that point. And that is how the concept of manifesting soul age has come into play. Question: So, if I, since she finished early I think intuitively that because of having connection with her regarding her death I think that she would have completed the 7th Internal Monad and since I had the ability to transfer from the 3rd level to the 4th level this lifetime then I'm thinking she must have. So, if I focus on the 3rd level then I would more easily complete the 7th Internal Monad but if I focus on the 4th level, because I am on the 4th level, then I probably wont? Or do I still have the ability to do that? MEntity: You can knock out so to speak all of the 7 Internal Monads in one lifetime or one level. There is no rule to it and they do become easier with more experience although each lifetime is isolated to what that personality decides or develops into its capacity for processing those rites of passages and they can always be thrown off and get stuck but you could go through all 7 Internal Monads multiple times during one soul age level if you chose to do so. But as your soul ages, the amount of times or the amount of lifetimes it takes to transit a soul age level exponentially becomes less. Question: Could it be one? MEntity: Yes. Question: Or half of one? MEntity: Yes it can. For the most part there are at least on average 7 lifetimes per level your particular Cadre or Energy Ring is not average and we do not say that as a compliment but we say that as a matter of statistics. Another layer that may be of interest in the process of evolution in the lifetimes, the end of each lifetime and the process afterward, is that each of the levels, or rather each of the soul ages, is a process of developing a certain kind of relationship with your Essence. And so, for instance, the entire process of the infant soul age, is a process of developing an instinctive relationship with your Essence. It is a process of developing your instinctive center to a degree that it holds as much experience and memory and wisdom as possible between lifetimes. So the entire Infant Soul age is about programming, if you will, the memory disk that will be taken from each lifetime and moved into the next lifetime and built upon. The Baby soul age is entirely about developing a more cohesive union or co-creative relationship your Essence and this is why those who are Baby souls often have that sense of dichotomy with their Essence because they're developing that relationship with their Essence and they will call it God and they will call it angels, they will call it whatever it is that will personify it in a way that develops that communication and communion that part of themselves. And over the process of the Baby soul age, they will eventually grasp that they are the same thing or that they are one but in that process will personify Essence to whatever degree helps to develop a relationship the Essence. The Young soul age is all about the rebellion from that communion or that co-creative process and during the Young soul age the personalities have the most running amock of any of the soul ages because personality is, now that they have been born from the process of realizing that personality is also as valid and powerful if you will as Essence, then it thinks it can do everything on its own and doesn't need that sense of Essence or that sense of soul. And so during the Young soul phase, the personalities reject Essence more often than not and dive right into the physical plane and try to get as much out of it on their own as a means to prove that they are just as much powerful and valid as they have discovered Essence is. Over time however, the difference personalities that are a part of that Young soul age begin to realize that the materials to work with on the physical plane are quite limiting and that is the nature of the physical plane. And while certain things can be attained physically on the physical plane such as money and wealth and fame and fortune and physical stimulation, it is limited to the physical plane and it does not carry forward to any great degree of satisfaction beyond the physical plane. And that is the process of realizing that there is more to life than the physical plane and then it is a process of developing an emotional relationship with your Essence or an intimacy with your Essence. Where the Baby soul age is about the recognition of the validation of Essence or the soul if you will, the Mature soul age is about the intimacy that develops from that and the emphasis becomes more about co-creative process and working with your Essence to create the lifetime. And the emphasis becomes more about what will be carried forward from the lifetime rather than what will be left behind. Your cars and your cash will be left behind but your relationships will not for instance. The Old soul age then is about the expression of your Essence into the physical plane. It is no longer about the co-creative process. It is no longer about the communion process. It is no longer about accomplishing. But it is about actually being your Essence or being your soul while here. And so, the emphasis turns towards spirituality and a very profound process of manifesting more of who you are outside of the physical plane here and bringing that consciousness to the process than it is about just living. Because your Essence is basically just blind, has no feeling, has no capacity of experiencing the physical plane without the personalities, so overall of those lifetimes it eventually gets invited in a way that is quite profound during the Old soul age. And then, you're faced with the paradox of your Essence of finally being manifested in a way that gets to experience the physical plane fully while the personality craves going home or the integration process that will eventually occur and that wil why so many old souls tend to feel tire or bored with the physical plane or not as fulfilled by it and not as interested in it because it knows there is so much more beyond it. While your Essence is, forgive the pun, thrilled to death that it is able to experience the physical plane so fully. Any other questions regarding... Question: Well XXX and I had a lot of conversation about that TV show that he watched where everybody saw the white light and then people and loved one and stuff like that, so what is your perception or your take on what happens? Do you see loved ones? Are they manifestation of those people coming to greet you or are they just aspects of yourself that shows you what you think you want to see or expect to see? Like the person going to hell, goes to hell. You know, I think that I probably will see other lifetimes waiting to greet me. So, will that be what I'll see because that's what I think I'll see? MEntity: Those who truly die are not always "greeted" on the other side because part of the process of dying includes going through what that individual expected to go through. And not very often does the personality know what to expect or it has become so programmed in what to expect that there is no room for greetings on the other side. But those who have near death experiences quite often have their support groups on the other side because the lifetime is not over and the process is one of escorting if you will the consciousness back to the body in a way that is either part of that life's plans so that it affects the life in a way that gets built upon or just happens to be something that the personality experienced and becomes a part of its experience. So, whether there are those loved ones or fragments of the self, other personalities that you've been on the other side waiting to greet you, the potential is always there for that but it is not consistent and it is always dependent on the personality. Those who return however are quite often greeted because they are not there to experience their afterlife. They are there to be returned. Question: So everybody tends to see what they think they're going to see with their interpretation of what happens to you after life ends. So if somebody isn't coming back and you really are dying but they think they're going to see that then they see that? MEntity: If by "that" you mean loved ones greeting them ... of course, yes. Most of you who are Old souls when you die don't experience much difference from what you're experiencing just before because the consciousness is to a certain degree that allows the transition to feel as if you've shifted perspective. Because the more you manifest Essence within the lifetime, the less shocking the process of dying is because you will already have been who you are on the other side or the larger part of who you are and so the process is quite simple. And so while you know yourself as XXX and you know yourself in this body, that will be part of transition as simply stepping out of context of living but still having everything familiar quite comfortable but a lot more maleable and you will then you will be greeted by those you might want to see or experience and you will still have a relationship with those who are still on the physical plane even if they're not aware of it. By relationship, we mean that they have a counterpart of themselves that can accommodate you in the afterlife in the way that is familiar to you. That does not mean you have a relationship to the physical version. Chatroom question: So if one had a concurrent at say Mature level 7 and he transited the 7th Internal Monad, as *you* as his concurrent and living would you experience the soul age/level intra-life change? MEntity: You could. Yes. If you have overlapping lifetimes which is not uncommon especially with the older soul ages and one lifetime has progressed to a certain point that could contribute to a concurrent's evolution, it can. Very rarely that capitalized upon because it is very important to each personality to feel as if the progress is its own. What it will do is contribute to the Essence's evolution and depending on the concurrent personality that is still alive and its relationship to that Essence, it can pull that in as part of its influence in the lifetime but it is not imposed or suddenly realized in the lifetime. We'll pause for a moment... What we'll talk about next then is how to apply this information that might be useful at some point. To return to a question that was asked earlier about whether one lifetime can be transited as a soul level because all of the internal monads were processed, we would like to add that for the most part, the 1st three internal monads are quite often processed fairly easily and quickly for the older soul. And if there is any point to which it is stuck which extends the need for multiple lifetimes for a level it is at the 3rd rather the 4th or 5th internal monads. It is not uncommon for some fragments to be stuck at the 4th Internal Monad for several lifetimes before they are able to move on. Question: If I could ask you a question that is the reverse of XXX's before you move on. What I was told by a channel who wasn't a Michael channel that my last lifetime was that I died as a young boy in France during WWII. Let's say hypothetically true because I can't validate it, I obviously would have died at the 2nd monad/3rd monad and obviously I haven't transited all my monads when I came into this life so how affect me starting ?into a new lifetime not having completed all the monads in the last lifetime? MEntity: As with most of existence, there are no hard set rules to the process. There are only consistencies and general guidelines and so we cannot say because that happened here is what happened but we can say that the death of a personality early in its lifetime can mean multiple things. It can mean it simply died and yes it did not have a chance to go through many internal monads but this has no bearing on where it had reached in the previous lifetimes even if it were 2 or 3 lifetimes previous to that. If any lifetime previous to that reached or processed an internal monad up to for instance a 6th Internal Monad then if the 3 subsequent lifetimes died early it has no bearing on the following lifetime that may have then lived to go through all 7 Internal Monads. It will not set you back in other words. The life must be, or the personality, the physical body must be alive 7 years for it to have a personality that needs to go through any processing. So any lifetime or any personality that dies before the age of 7, we say this as a general number, its integrated almost immediately with Essence because it did not get to a stage of autonomy. It did not get to a stage of completion of that 2nd Internal Monad for that lifetime. And, it takes up to 7 years for your Essence to even become a part of that personality because it takes at least 7 years for the consciousness to develop a way that can connect to that Essence more directly. The other reasons why it can be because the 7th Internal Monad was not processed and despite the fact that the physical body did not have a linear progression through the rites of passage. If the body is born long enough and has a consciousness and dies, that short life can be specifically to process the 7th Internal Monad. Question: Does that often lead to a walk-in? MEntity: No, if we understand you question correctly, no. Question: My question was if a lifetime was created just for the completion of the 7th Internal Monad would another soul walk in? MEntity: If the body did not die, because with the 7th Internal Monad now it gets a little complicated because there are different arcs of the internal monads that get processed. There is the Essence level, the process of moving through your soul age level and then there is the individual process that happens for each personality. And so, the 7th Internal Monad that was necessary for the Essence to evolve can happen within a lifetime without the body dying. And at that point, yes, the Essence can withdraw from the lifetime and another Essence walk in to take over that physical body. We realize all of this sounds quite creative. Question: Isn't that what it's all about? MEntity: We would agree. so, to answer your question, no it does not necessarily lead to a walk-in situation but if the body or the personality generated would like to stay alive it can take on another Essence for the remainder of that lifetime. By all intents and purposes, it would be a separate person. It would be a different person altogether even if the body were the same. Walk-ins only make up less than 5% of incarnations so it is not quite that common on a cosmic scale. Well, we gave that number as a peak number at any given time it's never more than 5% of incarnations that are occurring. Now what we would suggest for you as far as applying this information if you choose to do so is that in your day to day living it is helpful for you to work on the manifestation of your Essence or the realization that you have an Essence and to explore that concept and to bring that into your day to day functioning in a way that matters to you. You cannot help but be your Essence in a lifetime because that is who you are to some extent whether you reject it or not. But the more you embrace it and the more conscious you become of it, the more tap into resources that are available to you reject the concept of having an Essence. Question: Resources such as? MEntity: Energy, enthusiasm, creativity to name a few. Embracing your Essence means you allow or create opportunities in your life to shine. And by shine, that is the moment where you feel as if you are fully being who you are. Manifesting Essence does not mean that you live everyday as a soul or an Essence with some notion that because you are immortal you can do whatever you want and not suffer the consequences of the physical plane. That is not what we mean by manifesting Essence. Manifesting Essence or your Essence role means creating or allowing moments in your life that may last for great lengths of time or may last for short periods of time where you are exactly who you think you are everything you aspire to be. And those are the moments you are manifesting Essence. It also shows up when you are in any moment for a short period or length of time liking the life that you are living. And sometimes, there are conditions within the life that make it less likeable. But, liking the life does not mean settling with the life. It mean understanding your place in that larger pattern that is your life and knowing that you can navigate it in some way that can create or allow more than what you have or what you like at the moment. So, liking it is not a conclusive state but a process and liking who you are. So to that degree, knowing this information and being able to let the life... the process of bringing more of your consciousness into the experience of physical plane in your life and applying that creatively and using it as a form of navigation for the life and manifesting more of who you are in a way that you like makes the process of dying much more comfortable than if you hate the life, do not like who you are, and feel stuck or trapped. Those particular states within the lifetime are the most difficult or some of the most difficult to process upon death. And so, bringing more of you into the life or more of your Essence into the life is a way of making death more livelier if you will. For those time of when you know of someone who is dying, it can be a direct or indirect form of support if you know anything about that individual's life and where he or she may have come to in his or her process in internal monads. It can help you to psychically or emotionally or even directly help that fragment or that personality in its transition. And, this will not what time you make this realization. If this is somebody from your past, you can actually contribute to their process of transition by offering insight, offering support, remembering that loved one in loving ways and this contributes to their own personal process of evolution. It's not limited by time. If you know someone had difficulty getting beyond their rebellious stage for instance then it might be someone who is also going to go through that in the afterlife. Then if this is something that you know or sense, you can use your imagination as a tool and is not something that just generates fantasies but is actually a tool, an effective tool, can be used to imagine yourself helping this person realize that he or she does not have to burn in hell for instance or suffer beyond the lifetime. If you know of someone who is at least to the point where they have faced the prospect of death and have realized that there is a mortality, you can help in the transition by not holding on to that one version of that person after he or she has died. You can help contribute to their evolution by allowing them to "go" while still missing them or loving them or craving them. But if you are locked onto them in a way that keeps them focused on you and your comfort, it's very difficult to focus on their own process. And so assuring them that you're ok and assuring them that you understand goes to great lengths to contributing to their evolution and their process. So those are the 2 most applicable way we think you could use this information in any way that might be symbolically helpful to you. Though we think it goes beyond symbolic. Being who you are and finding and creating those moments you can be that and letting go of those who have passed while still loving them. Those 2 things quite simple and to some of you, obvious, but very powerful. Question: I'm not sure how this really applies but would holding onto something after it dies, would that affect them continuing on? MEntity: No. There is absolutely no effect... the truth is there is absolutely no effect between you and a deceased animal and between you and a deceased human or sentient, fellow sentient being. When we suggested letting go of an individual who has passed, it is not because of your not letting go hinders the fragment but that personality who has died will more than likely tend to your needs and stick around as a form of support rather than focus on its own process. Not because it has to but because it might want to. And so, you're letting go contributes to the process of their evolution but you're not letting go doesn't hinder it if this is clearer. when it comes to animals that you have become close to, and their passing, because it is a completely different dynamic of consciousness, there is no personality involved that extends beyond the animal itself. There is a consciousness that represents the animal but it is not defined in the way that sentient consciousness has personalities. You may see personalities in your animals because they do personify various overleaves. For instance, a dog will not have a complex personality but may have embodied an Attitude or may have embodied a Mode or may have embodied a Goal depending on its breed. And so, it could be said that animals are made up of one or two of what could be called overleaves so there is not the same template that carries forward as it is quickly absorbed back into the hive soul. And while you as an individual can recognize the consciousness of the animal and still see and interpret a personality from that it is in no way a relationship that is hindered or affected by your hanging onto or letting go. Any other questions regarding this subject? Question: I have a question. For example, my mother died quite young and it seems like she always shows up when I'm with a medium or a channeling session with a medium, my mother always shows up. It seems like she likes to hang around me alot. So I was wondering, if you die in your 40's and you haven't incurred all of your monads would you possibly hang around a child for unfinished business like as oppose to my grandmother who never shows up but she completed all her monads. She died very old. She never shows up. MEntity: Yes, as part of the process of an internal monad, depending on where the individual was in their death, part of that process can be working through emotional elements, not physical ones and not anything relative to the physical plane. Anything that is on an emotional level can be done without bodies and therefore the personality despite of it not having a body can "hang around" and still have an emotional exchange with you. Because, even while you are here physical, every time you sleep, you free yourself and more of your consciousness to astral plane and therefore can work things out in dream state or even if you're conscious in your daily life and you have a rich emotional life it can be the meeting ground for non-physical relationships. If that were not the case, you would not be able to have guides and you would not be able to have the sort of non-physical support each of you do have in every lifetime whether you are aware of it or not. Question: So it made no difference then that she didn't finish all of her monads essentially because if you can have the same relationship with guides as well as a parent it wouldn't have mattered what point she died right? MEntity: Mattered in what sense. Question: The fact that we still have this relationship... nonphysical... MEntity: Yes, relationships can continue after death if the individual such as yourself is open to that and it's a mutual relationship. Sometimes what can happen is that the person who is left behind so to speak in a physical body can stay attached to their idea of the individual who has died and while that individual my have continued evolving and even be in another life, a counterpart or what we'll call a counterpart representative of that other individual can still focus on having a relationship with you for your sake. Because, as we said earlier, it does not take much to generate these personalities and variations of focus. Does this answer your question? Question: Yes. MEntity: To extend upon that, the relationship may not be working on anything but simply being there as a form of support a general form of opportunity for you to evolve your perception of that individual as well. Because, the individual who died within your lifetime died at a certain point in your lifetime that had a certain perspective of that person. That same vision so to speak of that individual will look different in 10 to 15 to 20 years. And so, in 20 years your relationship to what you may remember as your mother may evolve and have worked out issues related to that individual. And so, a counterpart or a version of your mother can still be in a relationship with you even though its non-physical for that reason. Which mean, you can talk to those personalities, you can exchange information. And while you may dismiss it and your imagination or creative thinking it can still be helpful to you in working things out. There is much more to say about this topic and we've touched on it in a rather roundabout way because we did not have a clear subject posed to us by Troy so we just dove in with what seemed the most relevant for this layer of information about this topic but we can be asked again in a different way and reveal more details or more layers that may be of interest to you. We think we have time for one round of personal questions if you choose to use that time. We will do our best to respond and so you may begin with those if there are any. Question: So, I've touched upon this before last time we talked about my job making me really bitchy and aggravated all the time and it's really affected me so strongly. I did take, I heard strongly what you said about, it doesn't have to be. I don't have to commit to it for the rest of my life and so the option for change is there. Its kind of freed me up a little bit. It's gotten a little less horrible for me. But I have noticed that I'm a little uncomfortably jaded I guess maybe and I kind of want back that feeling of, I don't know... it sounds so stupid, sort of like that youthful feeling that everything is going to be ok. It's not that I don't think everything is going to be ok because I do. I'm just a little bitchy about it. It feels so oddly uncomfortable to me and there's got to be some sentence that I can tell myself or remind myself that lets that edge off. Because I keep saying, I should start drinking or something. I gotta do something to take the edge off. I feel like I'm so close and that I want to tip it over and make that extra little bit be back to my usually happy self. I miss that person and I feel like she's withered and died... people stepped on her like gum. I don't know how to ask it. I'm looking for something I can do for myself as a reminder that's going to help click something in my brain or my body or my soul or my Essence or my something... MEntity: Our response to that is a very simple response and that would be to do something more for yourself. And by this we mean, to point out that any you who develop a routine that becomes so entrenching that you've lost your sense of self often you only need to throw a wrench in the works by doing something different by bringing you back to yourself. By that we mean, do not think that your commitment to these routines is a condemnation but first to recognize it is a choice and there is a payoff in that choice that is benefiting you to some degree. But what you would want to do to add to the ingredients of your day to day life is to add something more to compliment it and by that we mean, to do something different with the time that is yours and not your company's. Question: I'm so exhausted by the end of the day I can barely get home. MEntity: Your exhaustion is relative to your lack of doing something more for yourself. It is not just because of the routine. It is because you are not doing more that rejuvenates you. What you need is rejuvenation, not rest. What you would want to do is decide in your month ahead, in your next 30 days for an example, where on your calendar and time frames you can plan and do something that is a gift for yourself or a time that is rejuvenating or doing things that you have decided are rejuvenating. And what you will find, even with an hour of something that is rejuvenating and is your choice can zero out the exhaustion from eight hours of routine. So the irony here is that in your doing so much that you don't like you simple need to do more of what you do like. Question: so I can just start out by doing just one thing a week... MEntity: Yes, but we would say not something that needs to be on a weekly basis but can even be on a monthly basis and even just looking forward to it can negate a great deal of the exhaustion knowing that you have a treat... Question: I have been looking forward to going home to visit my parents and I have felt pretty good this whole because of the excitement about going... MEntity: Rejuvenation returns you to your enthusiasm and your enthusiasm returns you to your Essence and having more of your Essence present is what's considered what you've described as your "youthful, happy-go-lucky self" where everything is ok and so the 1st step then is that rejuvenation. Next question... Question: I have a question. So I a guy named Leo and we've seemed to hit it off and I wanted to know if we have any agreements between each other? MEntity: No. This appears to be one that you would have to generate those agreements after more time together but no pre-existing agreements appear to have been brought to the relationship. Having a lack of pre-agreements does not mean having a lack of capacity for making agreements and so that will be up to you what you do with this relationship. Question: It's interesting that you brought up about trying to live more and asking to bring Essence through and so what I've been really working on this last year is... I have a post-it note of a comment that Michael made and it must have been another chat or another channeling session where you said that old souls live through their body and experience joy and so on... it's still tough for me to embrace Essence. I'm hoping that I will get comfortable enough in my own skin that I may investigate a mate agreement before my last monad. So my question is, do I have any mate agreements in New York City? MEntity: Yes, you do. First we will back up to say that in your process of liking who you are is a reflection of embracing more of your Essence or bringing more of your Essence into the personality and the lifetime and manifesting your true personality. Some of this is relative to physical conditions that you've placed on whether you like yourself or not and we bring this up so that it is not attached those particular things if you can identify them. But that the true manifestation of your Essence, in a way that would be consistent, would have no attachments to conditions and so we bring this up so all of you can add to what were were saying earlier, that manifesting your Essence and being more of who you are, creating or finding those opportunities to shine are ok to have conditions in place for but the less conditions in place, the more consistent the experience of liking who you are. For example, some of you only like yourselves if a lot of people give you feedback that they like you. And this makes you like yourself more... we're speaking generally at this point as an example. That is a valid process in returning you to liking who you are and to expose you to the experience of liking who you are but if it is only dependent on the conditions that others continually feedback that they like you then the consistency of liking yourself is lost. Does this make sense? So your 3 mate agreements appear to be: 1) a Sage who appears to be... our records depend upon many factors in updating for fragments who are still incarnating so we will do the best we can so that there is a validation.... and we will say that this fragment appears to be living on the upper east side currently and one of the validation factors is a nostalgia or a current passion for baseball 2) The other appears to be a Server who is not actively working but aspiring to work in the alternative medicine or healing field. The validation factor for this individual might be a scar that may indicate the removal of an appendix or surgery of some sort but it appears to be on the left side of the body. There is a story that goes with it that is relative to something that got botched 3) And the 3rd agreement looks to be an Artisan. This one, comes with it, some turbulence in getting to know each other so that would be one validation factor. The Artisan... the validation factor... and we don't know why this is a part of the process but is quite offensive at first and has a proud interest in ceramics that have been made that find unappealing and that might be the way you validate that mate agreement. Are there any other questions? Question: I have a quick question. I hope it will be either a yes or no. Did XXX, did I hear her or was that just my imagination or was I dreaming, after she died? MEntity: This appears to have been a valid experience. Your hearing is one of your senses that can get amped to include ranges that would be considered to be physical and... Question: My hearing or one's hearing in general? MEntity: One's hearing in general but we're speaking about you right now so that you hear things that others cannot that have a more subtle range that could be picked up on devices that may or may not be in existence at this time. No, these are not cloaked sounds we are speaking of. If there are no other questions then we will conclude here and say goodbye.
  4. January 3, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel State of the Planet THANKS TO MARYBV for Editing and Moderating! Thanks to ANNE for Moderating! Thanks to ALL of you who came! NOTE: This copy includes some clarifications and editing for the purpose of getting more information from Michael. [M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are present. We have been asked to address the “state of the planet” as we see it for your year 2002. Though a great deal of this will be extrapolation and probabilities, we will try to remain focused on the more contextual energies, higher probabilities, and how you can use or evade them. We will note here that it will also bear even more light on the effect of the Overleaves for a year’s time when you look at your past year’s Overleaves in retrospect. As we have announced previously through this channel, the Overleaves as they continue to stand for most of the planet at this time are: Priest/Discrimination/Passion/Pragmatist with Moving Center/Intellectual Part and the Chief Negative Features of Impatience/Martyrdom. The time frame of the year ahead will have the general context of Priest Energy and Moving Center. This means, overall, regardless of your ROLE in Essence, you may find yourselves determining your interaction with the world in terms of whether you are serving the Higher Good or not, whatever you or your Community Truths have deemed that to be. The ROLE and CENTER always set the foundation for the general context the world will be using as a medium of expression, inspiration, action, and assimilation. In this case, the year’s emphasis will be more on Inspiration and Action as the filter through which your life will be contributing to, or extracting from, the collective world. Considering the context of the Moving Center, this might mean that many of you will feel moved to literally take part in organizations, groups, outings, travels, activities, etc., as they relate to that collective “higher good.” This Priest-oriented year allows you to take a good, long look at what you believe to be the higher truths in your world and communities as you participate with, contribute to, battle with and/or create those very truths. In a Priest-oriented year combined with the Moving Center, you will find yourselves Physically manifesting what your own Compassion dictates, even if this leads to Zeal. Priest Years, then, bring serious examination of collective beliefs involving Compassion, Inspiration, and Zeal, and how you contribute to them, while a Moving Centered year will provide the medium through which this is all examined and experienced, either Productively or Frenetically. The Moving Center, then, creates a medium in the Physical Plane through your Body, your Environment (including your Pets and Plants you tend as part of your environment), your Physically intimate relationships, your Boundaries, Travel, Transportation, and Health. Of course, there are many more examples we could give, but these are fair enough. We will note here that ALL qualities of ALL Roles are inherent in ALL fragments in varying degrees, which the Overleaves emphasize or challenge in varying lives. Noting where your own Overleaves fall on their Axis in relation to the Cardinal Inspiration and Ordinal Moving will tend to indicate whether your own year will more “involved” in the world or not. Those who will be drawn into the “mix of things” of world or community events will first be those who are Priests/Servers and those who are Moving Centered, but those who have Growth, Passion, Spiritualist, or Saturn Body Types, and those who are Warrior, or in Submission, Perseverance, Cynic, or with Martial Body Types will play supporting roles in the unfolding of larger events, as well. The more your own Overleaves match these highlighted, the more “meaningful” this year will tend to be for you, whether in your personal life or in your experience of the world. In terms of high probabilities, we do see two “new” Priests taking the spotlight this year; fragments who have never been in the spotlight before, but are intending to play a vital role in the year ahead. One is an Early Mature Priest fragment currently living in South Africa, and the other is a Late Mature Priest residing currently in the North Eastern United States. These fragments have elected to take stances for peace that may or may not be implemented, but the effort and ideas will at least be strongly presented and considered. Some ideas are going to be controversial and upsetting, but most will agree it is time for these approaches, whether you do or not. Both Priests are Female. Interestingly, these fragments are not directly involved in Politics or Religion, as many Priests are realizing these fields no longer hold the respected stances needed for inspiration. We remind you that we are not predicting anything; we merely convey the current, higher probabilities, which contain as much possibility for change as anything Many of you will be continuing to deal with a familiar, yet uncomfortable energy as it carries over from last year: the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. Last year had much of the population in the context of the INTELLECTUAL CENTER, Moving PART, with as many in the Moving Center, Intellectual Part. This year should prove to be more confined to the specific contexts of the Moving Center and Intellectual Part. This looks to be a collective decision that “things DO need to change, but let’s THINK before we DO.” Last year resulted in a great deal of damage from those who were using the Intellectual, Moving PART as their force. In the end, the year found a great heaviness of depression and grief reigning as the Emotional Center energy was all but neglected. You may find the next year as exhausting on your emotions, as well, since there is little emphasis on the Emotional Center again. With the Priest Energy of the year, there will, of course, be a vague, higher context of examination in terms of Love and Empathy from the resonance of the Higher Emotional, but the results of that examination will most likely not feel fulfilling until 2003. So, once again, you enter into a year where the Emotional world could be left behind in favor of ideas, actions, and changes. Many of you may feel the impact of this rapid momentum of energy when it feels there is little time to really reflect before the next event is asking to be dealt with. A Moving Centered year moves quite rapidly in perception and this can be challenging to the Older Souls who are healthy participants in the world, yet wish for a “break”. 2002 will most likely seem to have pockets of emptiness and vague memory as many fragments “ride the energy” through the year in a “waking sleep” when they feel they have to. The Late Mature and Old Souls are most likely to find these gaps in memory, or find that the year seemed to have “disappeared.” These sensitive fragments are having a hard time coping with the world events as they are unfolding. Many of these Older Souls have already been through some of the most horrific carnage this planet has had to face in terms of human loss, war, and grief, so there is a great deal of inner repugnance, repulsion, and disturbance being brought up. “Learning your lessons” in areas of war, death, and harm does not make you apathetic; in fact it makes you much more “sensitive” to these very matters. Many may feel suicidal, depressed, angry, or unhealthy as they feel this intensity in the world currently is far “too soon” occurring and intentions for the life are being reconsidered for many of the parallels as to what to do. Those who genuinely do not find any benefit from remaining, will opt to exit within this year from the Older Soul community, or find magnificent, “magical”, “miraculous” events happening for them that tend to remove them from the collective events in some way. Though this reaction to the planetary growth is not limited to Older Souls, it is stronger in that group. Moving Centered years almost always bring a great deal of death in groups and bizarre disasters, along with extreme manifestations in the Physical Plane, for better or worse. For instance, more “advances and breakthroughs” in the biology and medicine worlds will be announced, with a great deal of emphasis on cloning, of course. This year will also bring to light some new, amazing modes of transportation that have not caught on yet, along with a marketable home robotic “maid/butler” that will most likely be controversial. “Terrorist” attacks will continue to plague the US and Europe, though primarily in the US where it will continue to be confusing as to whether these are related to the extremists of Muslims or simply domestic exploitation for personal causes. We do see a great deal of the attacks coming from “within” and being completely unrelated parties, with a stronger intent than ever to create a civil war. The first three months of your year are in the context of Discrimination. Last year had most of the year focusing on Acceptance issues, while this year will focus on refinement and clarifying of what you have discovered are just not acceptable at this point. This will be the year where more collective communication is required in highly sensitive areas where groups are standing behind their rejection of certain aspects of life and society. The first three months now will be in taking a serious, somber look at what really isn’t working for you in life, either collectively or privately. Most of this will be in the context of what work you are doing, how much of your energy is involved in your life tasks, and how your interaction with the world contributes, as we said, to the “higher good”. These first three months may seem quite rocky to some of you as the energy is implemented and stabilized, but by April, the intensity of scrutiny and defining of boundaries should be eased. Those who consciously work through these energies will most likely find themselves in what would seem to be a “better”, more sound place in their life and material world. Those who resign themselves to overwhelm, or are simply not interested in dealing at all, may find themselves feeling rejected, isolated, and on the fringes of a rapidly-moving year. This is not a rule, of course, nor is it a means to “scare” you; we merely comment on the general possibility of how fragments may react. April through June will focus more on the MODE of the year, and the Goal will have taken footing by then. This year, April through June looks to be the most exciting, volatile, and erratic as fragments find passion for will now start to be indulged in. When you reach the phase of Passion Mode, many will find this time to be where the emphasis is on your most intimate relationships and how “true and meaningful” they are in your life. Considering this is a Passion year, the examination will be on whether you are actually developing more of who you are by being in these relationships, or if you are simply identifying with that person and use them to superficially define you. Neither is good or bad, but the latter will be less comfortable in a year of Discrimination. Relationships will have their struggles during that period of time, and we would suggest keeping this in mind as you unearth all the reasons to remain with or leave your friends, work (coworkers), mate, etc. Try to remind yourself that by bringing knowledge to the surface about what you are getting/receiving from your interactions is simply an opportunity to clarify what it is you want and need. This can be approached, first and foremost, through communication. If there is no ability to communicate about what you want/need, then a more definite decision will feel pressured into needing to be made. April through June seems to be bringing with it a couple of potentially strange natural disasters or accidents, including a most devastating tidal wave to a major city. Humans are still not learning the benefit of keeping population down, and with the recent disasters, the Instinctive Centers of many are scrambling to create even more babies as a life-affirming act. This is not good work, but that is a lesson every species will tend to at some point. Until that area of responsibility by a Species is consciously dealt with, the Instinctive will always opt to leave a life, than to threaten the collective Species that houses Essence through a Cycle. When the population of a Species begins to threaten its own survival, then larger groups of fragments exit in more bizarre and unexpected ways. July through September brings some Pragmatism as the “year-to-date” gets examined through the collective Attitude, or perspective. Those who have created a momentum through the year in the negative poles will now take root in their actions with a severely dogmatic approach. If any violence between groups is going to occur on a larger scale, it will most likely be at this time. Last year found the Cynic Attitude coming to the forefront of perception, ironically from the POSITIVE POLE. We remind you that the Cynic sees the OTHER sides of whatever seems to be the obvious. In the recent tragedies and grief, a great deal of “love” and global camaraderie found its way out from the original denigration of a few. We suspect the same may occur this year, as those who are dogmatic will be faced with those who are truly practical in their perspective of the world. This practicality could create systems that work to appease even the most disgruntled. And quickly, the end of your year will come with the continued energy of Impatience (Intolerance) from last year, while Greed is now replaced with Martyrdom (Victimization). Greed cannot work this year, but highlighting all who are victimized and/or intolerant can work with the other energies being generated. We note here that the Chief Feature part of the year does not necessarily mean that energy will manifest, but that it may simply be the issues and fears of the collective that have the opportunity to be addressed. We will discuss more about these Overleaves as the year progresses, but we realize your time is limited with us tonight and we are here to respond to your questions, as well. We also realize we will not be able to address all of what this year has in store with its probabilities, but we can at least provide this basic picture. [nemo-sam] If you can see the future, then can you see the past the same way, if you are outside of time? [M_Entity] Yes, we can “view” the past, but it also has probabilities as much as the future. Depending on your current position within your life, your “past” may be a particular timeline that has elements which are NOT a part of your “original” timeline. Some of our Older Soul students may even have the unusual, but natural, experience of “remembering” TWO or more completely different versions of the same event, even within one lifetime’s memory. This can happen individually and collectively. Time, as it is relative to a Personality, is more like the Personality is continually at the hub of a large wheel of probabilities, with as many “spokes” behind as there are before. “Turn the wheel” and you have a new set of probabilities, past and future. [ShannonB] What is the likelihood of armed conflict breaking out in India and Pakistan this year (in this parallel), and is it likely that nuclear weapons will be involved? [M_Entity] The likelihood is quite high at 47%, though the use of Nuclear Weapons only stands at 13%. Though the conflict could be diverted, we have seen the probabilities continue to move toward stronger, armed conflict. The knowledge of Nuclear Weapons being able to be used is sometimes enough to transform a conflict into negotiation, but in a year of potential rejection, identification, and zeal, the odds are higher that someone, somewhere, will want to destroy, rather than compromise. [Annette] Could you please comment on the economy in the United States in 2002? Will we be financially affected by world events (negatively or positively)? [M_Entity] The economy in the US appears to be on a staggering momentum, creating a constant scare, but never truly plummeting. We see the next year as being similar to the past year, though a bit more intense and anxious. The US is “smart” in its collective energy and though the world may appear to be falling apart at times, a large group of Young and Early Mature souls will continue to generate creative, fun, and meaningful prospects for the country. World Events will actually affect the US in “positive” ways because the US will continue to try to work with all governments in creating a more global “village,” than to simply remain in power. This “global village” concept may make some fragments nervous, but the intent is not an overtaking of the world with a single leader or government, but rather a commitment shared between nations that is geared toward compassion, prosperity, and peace. [MajickKat64] What sort of further terrorist attacks are likely in the US this year, and in what states might they most likely occur? [M_Entity] We continue to state that the Mid Western United States are the most vulnerable. There is still energy indicating several large hostage situations, building bombings, and airline disasters. Fear, though, is far more powerful than a bomb, so smaller incidences to create insecurity and panic seems to be the decided method, such as the poisoning of a small town’s water supply. Though this kind of action would be contained and diverted rather quickly, it can be a powerful method to create fear. Even our mentioning of it could do the same, and that is not our intention at all, but this is how powerful these images are. New York City and its mass transit and strong communications are still vulnerable, along with Chicago, and San Francisco. Please note that we are responding to your question, we are not predicting. These events have not come to pass, nor are they inevitable. They are the probabilities that have remained consistent and we share them because we are asked. They are not shared to create fear. Some of you already know this information as your intuitive selves can feel the validity. [Leela] In what country/city is this tidal wave a possibility? [M_Entity] Japan is most vulnerable, though areas south of Japan might be more involved, along the coasts of China, around Shanghai. Alternately, India has a high probability, as well. Either would be created from a devastating earthquake along a fault line in the deep sea. [MajickKat64] Ok thank you, will you briefly comment on the success of the new EURO? [M_Entity] This is one of the more innovative and practical steps toward the sharing of resources and values equally. This is a mature soul concept that will continue to struggle, but only in terms of its understanding. We do believe it will remain and the concept will spread to the US, as well. As more and more of the world thinks Maturely, so will the unifying means of exchanges. In most of your futures, there is a common currency across the planet, as well as a common clock. We will also note here that a great deal of your most positive changes in the world probabilities will come from Early Mature and Late Young Souls as they are both still quite aware of the material world, while striving for peace and equality. Striking that balance as a move forward for your planet is no small task, but one that is helped along when communities seek to understand the proposed changes and benefits. Good Night to all of you. We will “flesh out” the report in a more comprehensible and useful way with Troy so as to have a reference for validation in the year ahead. We conclude here.
  5. OMW - Apr 19, 2014 - Your Future and You Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We understand that today we will speak of the concept of "the future," and how you play your part in that dynamic. To speak of "the future" is to speak of the concept of Time, so we will start there. We will do our best to simplify this concept in a way that makes sense and pulls together some of the more disparate ideas about how Time works both as part of the Physical Plane and beyond. In the simplest of terms, Time is the capacity to measure differences. While "in" the Physical Plane, the density and division among parts allows for this experience to be quite acute and meaningful. We have described the concept of Time as arising from the function of the Emotional Center. This is because this is the Center that uses the function of Perception. Perception is a kind of internal processing of experiences that can organize those experiences into meaningful ways. The measurement of differences across those experiences is the experience of Time. While within the density of the Physical Plane, this is not just processed internally, but observed as an external process, as well. Time does not disappear in the Astral Plane/Emotional Plane, but is no longer restricted to the constraints of density. However, Time is still experienced in quite a similar way as when Physical, just less constrained. Time exists as a function throughout all Planes to some degree, though exponentially less and less constrained. If this function did not exist, there would be no valid evolution, as evolution is dependent upon the measurement of differences, and as long as there is the capacity to measure differences and to organize those differences into meaningful ways, there is some concept of Time. The reason there is a great deal of emphasis on how there is "no time" beyond the Physical Plane is because the concept changes drastically. It is not that it no longer exists. It is simply very different. There is a measurable physics to this that explains why this is so. Time is a byproduct of a kind of monad, which is two parts that intrinsically generate a wholeness that would not exist for either part, alone. In this case, that is the Essence and Personality. In truth, this monadal dynamic is stacked in many ways for every fragment, such as the Essence/Role, Role/Personality, Personality/Internal Monads, Entity/Cadre, Cadre/Energy Ring, etc. And any relationship of meaning between two people. Or more. That dynamic of the parts GENERATES this phenomenon of Time. Within the framework of the Physical Plane, this is observable as a constant dance of differences that can be measured, and so Time passes. The more measurable, or more acutely measurable, the differences, the more significant Time is. This is why the higher the plane, and the fewer the measurable differences, the more meaningless Time becomes. So Time is GENERATED, or comes FROM, that dynamic dance of parts and the capacity to measure the variations between those parts. So Time is not something you pass through, but is something you create as you observe those differences. This may not be an easy concept to ponder, but it is worth playing with over time. Pun intended. An aside: the reason for Sentimentality as the Negative Pole of the Emotional Center is because this represents a refusal for allowing for those differences to be measured any longer. There is an insistence on remaining locked into a static position in Time. Within the Physical Plane, the more one manages to Manifest Essence, the more management one tends to feel over Time. This is because as one merges the Personality and Essence, the less one is in a constant state of measuring of minute differences, but moves on to larger scale differences. The scale of Perception expands to include more. The past is no longer something that anchors one, nor is it something to which one wishes to return, but is carried with him or her as part of who and how one is. Time comes with you, and is not left behind, or dragging you back to it. The future is no longer something to which one must fear, or worry about, but is something that is owned as GENERATED from you, not imposed upon you. One of the main reasons we cannot predict your futures is because we cannot see those acute differences between you and your Essence. That byproduct of Time is your own. It is unique to you. We can see more collective paths generated, but for individuals, this is far more impossible. We can see collective paths because this a larger scale of differences that we can measure. Think of this as a means to understand our position: If you are in a car that is headed toward a wall at 60 miles per hour, we can see that your probability is high that you will hit that wall. But what we cannot predict are all of the acute measurements of differences that you could make on the scale that would steer you away from that wall, or halt the car, or change how you hit that wall. On a larger scale, we can say with great accuracy that "there will be more than 100 car crashes today," because we can see that pattern more clearly on that scale. We share all of this, not to elaborate upon how we process and see Time, but more to point out that you are in a very similar position when it comes to observing your own life. In other words, you can "see" your next 5 years in terms of where the wall is that you may hit, so to speak, or the direction you would prefer to go, or the necessities that may be of obligation to attend, etc., but you CANNOT predict much more than that, and it is harmful to presume you should. You know if you need to find a job, for example, but you cannot predict how or where or when that job might be landed. This inability to predict those details is moot because that will not affect that fact that you KNOW you will find that job. This is a simplistic example, but this is how you learn to take control over the TIME you experience because when you KNOW your general future, this byproduct of you becomes aligned with that. You KNOW you need to find a job. The rest is a matter of those acute measurements of differences as you progress toward that point. The future is not much different from the past, then, in terms of Perception vs Sentimentality. Being anchored to your worries of fears in the future is Sentimentality. The future is simply memory, in reverse. Memory is the pivotal point of access to your experience of Time. It is your local Akashic Records, so to speak. In the same way you use memory, we use the Akashic Records. It is one of the great lessons of an Entity to learn how to access, read, and make sense of the Akashic Records. It is a similar thing for Essence's use of Instinctive Center, and for Personality and Memory. As a pivotal point in Time, your memory accesses experiences that shape how, who, and why you are in terms of your past, but also shapes how, who, and why you will be in terms of your future. So treat your future as you do your past, and your past as you do your future. Let yourself own that pivotal position that determines the quality and meaning of both, and allow this to be what generates your Time. KNOW your futures as you REMEMBER your pasts. For those who tend to "get what they want," or who have things "just work out," this state of knowing is not unfamiliar. It can sometimes be experienced as Trust, but can be more specific in terms of what you seek to create. Knowing you will find a job is not the same thing as doing the work of getting that job, so knowing is not enough. TIME is necessary. On these smaller scales, Time is generated from those acute measurements of differences between you and your goal. Before we continue, we will open now for questions or comments on what has been shared. Are each of you feeling you are making sense of what we have been sharing? [Maureen] Yes [EricM] yes [ViP1] it sounds good so far to me - so KNOW-ing simply means being convinced (by Trusting) that things will work out in the way intended or required? [ClaireC] Yes. [ViP1] And also, re this: "This is why the higher the plane, and the fewer the measurable differences, the more meaningless Time becomes." [GeraldineB] it makes absolute sense to me [MEntity] We would caution against the idea of needing to be convinced, or that things "will work out," as if no effort were required. To KNOW means you participate. [ViP1] Is this because the higher one goes through the planes, the more one has "remembered" more and more parts of the universe as being parts of oneself - thus resulting in fewer and fewer perceived differences? [ViP1] Yes, that sounded a little too much like "Faith" to fit [MEntity] To the latter question, yes, that is fair. [ClaireC] When career is no longer "in the picture", imagining the Future is more difficult. In my case, being in my 5th IM, I have trouble picturing myself, or re-imagining myself, re-inventing myself. Do you have any advice on this? [ClaireC] Re-creation versus recreation.... [MEntity] Not advice, but suggestions: when there are no major concerns or turning points or obvious needs, then the process of Knowing shifts into a process of Creativity. Knowing is a means of accessing or utilizing Trust, which is a form of memory, since Trust depends on experience. Creativity, in this case, is means of exploration by rearranging experiences to generate new ones. So if you shift your ideas about the future from Knowing to Creating, you may find the adventures and exploration that brings life into the Time you generate. Do you understand? [ClaireC] Yes, this resonates a lot with what I've been thinking lately. [MEntity] Any further questions? [ClaireC] Not from me, thank you, Michael. [ViP1] neither me [MEntity] What we suggest of each of you then, at this point, is to describe your futures to us. Let us know what you know. Let us know what you are creating. Take a moment to consider this, and reply. *************** [ViP1] I think I'm creating something without participating enough - but participating is something I've been learning how to do more consciously [GeraldineB] My future is all about learning. Learning more about human histories/timelines, projected future in China, continuing to applying and teaching the "teachings" as possible. [ViP1] And, I'm trying to bring the best of my past into the future, but I may have been Sentimental in doing so up to more recently [EricM] There is lots of travel in my future, and I think this will start opening up connections and agreements... [ViP1] I'd say my future is more about bringing "me" out into the world than before, when it was about fitting myself into what the rest of the world chose to do first [Maureen] I see me in my future – taking different “turns” than I would have in the past -- just to see what is around the corner. I have no big overblown “problems” -- so it would be more out of pure curiosity. [ClaireC] Overall, I see myself as a joyful old lady, telling stories and anecdotes, working in my garden, looking after my wildlife, more or less what I'm doing now :) [Maureen] David = wildlife? [ClaireC] My birds, bunnies, squirrels, ducks, wild geese, anything that comes into my yard to be fed. :) [Maureen] ;) [EricM] I've had one unexpectedly jarring experience earlier this year that seems to have stirred up my psyche in a way that seems to include dealing with Sentimentality as I have dealt with anxiety and worry from it. But, apart from that, I can see the travel and bringing in new experiences and connections [MEntity] How do each of you feel about the concept of Time being a product generated from you, rather than something you pass through, or is imposed upon you? [GeraldineB] I like the concept but I suspect that I'll fall back into "passing through" rather easily [Maureen] That way of looking at it definitely feels more freeing and more "fun". [ClaireC] I can see how finding meaning in experiences ties in here. When there is meaning in events and experiences, Time feels well spent, not wasted. [ViP1] I can see that the capacity to perceive differences, or at least the viewpoint that one sees those differences from, can be a product of how empowered one feels [MEntity] We shared this with you not as a new way of pretending Time works, but as a valid physics that would likely come to be known by your sciences. [EricM] I also like the concept, it feels a lot more empowering and freeing. [Maureen] It is certainly empowering. [GeraldineB] It's why those in a coma don't experience time until they awaken and start it up again [MEntity] We know the subject today was of your future, and we cannot consider a better means of speaking to you of your futures than for helping you to know and create those with comprehension of how Time works. The rest is up to you, of course, but having these concepts can mean the difference between feeling as if you are a product of Time, or that Time is a product of you. We will be right "there" along with each of you as you measure those differences and organize them into meaningful experiences. [Maureen] How can these concepts of time help me, specifically, to want to go to sleep Michael? [MEntity] If you can shift your aim away from the control over time to the creation of it, it may free you to a great degree. In other words, it is no longer a THING against which you must struggle, but is a state that is present no matter what. And the more quality you can add to that state, the less it will pull you, divide you, or envelop you. Practice making this statement in the kindest way possible for your moments of time you wish to generate rest: "LET ME BE HERE NOW." "LET ME BE HERE NOW" and as you allow this, shift to "I AM HERE NOW. I AM HERE NOW" [ClaireC] Just like Michael! [Maureen] "I am so pleased to be here, now". [Maureen] Thanks Michael [MEntity] We do not toss phrases around simply to be socially courteous. "We are here, now" matters as a function of our approach through this channel. [ViP1] Can you describe in more detail how the monadal dynamic between Personality and Essence generates time? Is it simply the result of the difference in scale between what Essence can perceive, vs Personality? [MEntity] When there is entanglement between two parts that generate a whole, the differences in shifts between the two create Time. Evolution for Essence CANNOT exist without Personality. The changes made through the choices of Personality propel the choices of Essence, and the changes made through the choices of Essence propel the evolving Personalities. This dynamic is true between Essence and Entity, Entity and Cadre, Cadre and Energy Ring, and so on... [ViP1] And if there is time for a second: how do hive souls, without fully developed Emotional centers, perceive/process Time? [MEntity] In terms of hive souls, this is still true in a similar way as the Entity vs body within a species. It is true on larger scales, too, such as that of Design vs planet, Energy Ring vs Kingdoms, and continuing down the fragmentation vs representation of that fragment. [ClaireC] Do these choices of Essence affect all the Concurrent Personalities of that Essence? [MEntity] Claire, yes. [ClaireC] So, progress made by one Personality is beneficial in this lifetime to all the Personalities? [MEntity] More so than one can imagine. [ClaireC] Awsome! [EricM] This may have already been discussed, but I'd like to know what suggestions or ways this concept of time can help someone in the throes of Sentimentality or worry about the future or perhaps those recovering from an experience that leaves them anxious or Sentimental. I ask because I've been working on this myself, and have seen others going through it, and it can feel incredibly daunting...very much like you are a product of time or 'ruled' by it [MEntity] Eric, this solution would go back to the simple mapping among the Centers for return to a Positive Pole. In this case, turning to Insight or Productivity can help one to return to Perception. In other words, using the Positive Pole of the Intellect, INSIGHT, can help one to ask, "what am I learning from this?" "What did I learn from this?" "What can I take from this?" This line of questioning inherently ignites Perception without threat of abandoning the symbolism, freeing one from the lockdown in the past. Or using the Positive Pole of the Moving Center, PRODUCTIVITY, to ask, "what can I do with this?" "What will I do with this experience?" "What do I do with this now?" DOING something with what you remember, or LEARNING something from what you remember, brings you back into Perception. Do you understand? [EricM] yes [ViP1] Is that the same as being proactive with the results of what has happened to you, Michael? [MEntity] Yes, it can mean this same thing [ViP1] ok, thanks Michael [MEntity] We think we have shared a good start for each of you to consider for your futures, as well as your pasts, and this can be built upon from here. We will conclude here, for now. Good day to each of you.
  6. Michael Speaks 051510 Open Floor [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin the queue now. [QUESTION] Hello Michael, my question is regarding Cadence mates. Could you please elaborate on that connection... How do they function with each other? How do they work together to accomplish their global job? [MEntity] We would first point out that our term "Cadence" refers to any group of 7 with a relative resonance, which means that a Cadre is a Cadence of Entities, for instance. We point this out because we know that many students use the term to refer to the smallest grouping of 7 fragments of a single Role as cast within an Entity. There are many variations on "Cadence" across a Cadre and within an Entity. We point this out not only for clarity, but to say that our response would apply to all Cadences. We use the term "Cadence" to reference not only the rhythmic flow/count of fragmentation from Tao in 7/8 time, but as a musical reference to the culmination and "conclusion" of that flow into what are Cadres. We will also clarify that while we are aware of the terminology, we are not familiar with what is designated as "global jobs" beyond what might be a part of a Configuration of Agreements across a Cadence, which might be global in scope; otherwise, there are no inherent "global jobs." The relationship among Cadence members would be akin to positively-romanticized sibling relationships. Although the entire spectrum of human relationships can be had between Cadence Members, there does tend to be a kinship that is "softer" even in the worst of circumstances, relatively speaking. Those cast in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Positions tend to gravitate toward each other, as do 2nd, 4th, and 6th positions. The 7th position tends to be in a more "aloof" position, so to speak, and often becomes a focal point for other members of the Cadence. For instance, it is not uncommon for the Entities 1 through 6 to generate Personalities who feel they are "in love with" 7th Entity members and the various Personalities that are generated by the Essences of that Entity across lifetimes. The same can be said of a Cadence of Roles within an Entity. This dynamic of focus and support might best be understood if one were to visualize a pyramid with the 7th Position being at the "top" so that all of the energy and focus, gravitationally-speaking, is distributed among the other Positions for that 7th Position. This is not a literal description, but one that helps you to see that inherent dynamic of that Configuration. [QUESTION] Would it be appropriate to say that each of the 7 positions, in conjunction with each other, allow for a more complete understanding and exploration of the various lenses that a Role in essence can perceive, itself? [MEntity] We would agree. We would also agree to that description on the larger scales, as well. For instance, a Cadence of Entities (Cadre) in the Love (first) Position of its Energy Ring (12 Cadres) would collectively bring perspective, experience, and comprehension to that subject for the Energy Ring. [QUESTION] is there a more specific name to indicate we're talking about the smallest group? [MEntity] The Cadence of Roles (which could be called a scale of Notes) would collectively contribute to the whole of that Role's experience, perception, and comprehension within the context of its Greater Cadence (group of 49; 7X7). Greater Cadence might also be called a Chord. Cadence members spend more lifetimes together than any other grouping, and that number of lifetimes is greater on the smallest scale of a Cadence than on the greater scale of Cadence. For example, the Cadence of Roles in an Entity spend the most lives together, and then the Cadence of Raw Numbers. The Cadence of Raw Numbers could be called Octaves that include the Traveling Companions and Essence Twin. All of the Cadence variations could be considered as various "Melodies" within a Cadre. [QUESTION] what is the difference between the cadence of roles and the one of raw numbers? I thought that was one and the same? what is the distinction? [MEntity] A Cadence of Roles would be akin to the Notes on a scale from C to A, whereas a Cadence of Raw Number are like the 7 C Notes in 7 Octaves, or the 7 D Notes, etc. [QUESTION] does that make an entity or cadre a Song? [MEntity] A Cadre could be considered a Song. On the scale that becomes the Design or the Harmonies, the "words" that would be required by definition for a Song are no longer as relevant. On the larger scale, we would describe the grouping in terms of orchestral terms. [QUESTION] I'm going to get less esoteric for a bit. it strikes me that the US is more divided politically/emotionally than I have seen in my lifetime (even the 60's). There seems to be very little being done about real problems. How much does this really matter to individual personalities? What is a helpful point of view on this? [MEntity] The clearest metaphor we can find for describing where your country (and world) is currently would be at the crest atop the first hill of a roller coaster. "Half" of the people would be feeling the momentum forward, while "half" would still be hanging behind the hill, feeling the pull, but not seeing where it is going. The "half" in the front have a clarity that those "in the back" would not have, despite the fact that "everyone" knows they are on a roller coaster. Those "in the back" would have a bit more anxiety and resistance, in real world terms, as the gravity of evolution pulls them forward. We remind you that this "pull" and evolution are not imposed, as it is a choice to get on the "roller coaster" in the first place. We would also add that many "in the front" of the evolution are "egging on" those "in the back" to some degree for fun. "WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!" is similar to what even some "in the front" are calling out, but on higher levels of perception, we see this as the "brattier" of the Essences who get a kick out of generating drama for the younger souls. Many of the same fragments acting as alarmists fully "know better," but enjoy the drama and humor. It is easier to enjoy such things when there is a higher perception of events and probabilities. In the same way that many Essences will "pull up their lawn chairs" around the section of the Astral Plane allotted to "hell" just for the amusement of watching the younger souls who think they must burn in "hell," so do some fragments carry over that sense of humor into the Physical Plane to play on the younger souls' fears of evolution. The division you sense is valid, but temporary. Now that the Infinite Soul manifestation is less-likely to intervene, the more "obnoxious" of fragments on both ends of the spectrum of evolution will be more obvious, and this "obnoxiousness" does not preclude the possibility of being harmful. [QUESTION] What is "temporary" in this context? [MEntity] For the most part, we see the majority of probabilities "teetering" toward various angles of dramatic destruction, but no fragments are truly interested in going there. Once the planet has moved into a Mature Soul gravity of evolution, even the Infant and Baby among the population begin a sensitivity that recognizes PAIN as a common denominator among everyone. One of the first steps toward unity is the capacity to recognize suffering in another, and even the Oldest of Souls had trouble doing so before the shift into a Mature Soul Paradigm. Once that gravity begins, then compassion becomes a priority over competition (Young vs Mature). [QUESTION] Do you have any ballpark time-frame when things will start to calm down? [MEntity] Those who might still want to harm others as a means to alter or resist evolution may do so, but we have not found any probability where this happens on any scale that has impact. Most Baby and Young Souls are "more bark than bite" in general at this time, but this does not mean there will not be those who represent the extremes. In most probabilities relative to where and when you are asking this question, the full forward momentum that then takes everyone with it onto an evolutionary roll, so to speak, is in approximately 2 years. [QUESTION] It is well known that events on the Physical Plane are linear in time, yet it has been mentioned several times that events on the Astral Planes and above are non-linear, as well as a future on this physical plane parallel in which technology may allow there to be instances of non-linear time. Could you please explain in further detail this concept of non-linear time, and how it works around the concepts we know of as special and general relativity, particularly temporal causality? [MEntity] The concept of non-linear time is best understood in vertical terms rather than horizontal terms, if you will. Linear progression happens "all the way" up and returning to Tao. Linearity is not lost, it is simply not the only perspective. The past is still the past, and the future is still the future, and the present is still the present. However, to help one imagine the concept that is often referred to as non-linear time, we would refer to the imagery of a 365 Day Wall Calendar. Within the Physical Plane, "you" exist within one of the boxes representing the Day. You progress from box to box, day to day, and there is very limited perception of the entirety of the year in front or in back of your point of reference. [QUESTION] so would it be correct to say that as you move up vertically, you see more and more on how actions in the present affect the future, but future events cannot affect the past, so to speak? [MEntity] From the Astral Plane, time is still quite linear in experience, except that it could be said that you have the equivalent of a clear view of the Month, rather than the limitation of the Day. From the Causal Plane, the view is more like being able to see the entirety of the wall calendar for the Year. [QUESTION] so you observe the events simultaneously, rather than individually? [MEntity] Yes, the comprehension, experience, and perception of events is not linear, even though the progression of events are. This is why we use the differentiation between horizontal and vertical: it is merely a matter of perspective that allows for the experience of non-linear aspects. [QUESTION] Wouldn't that interfere with choice though, if an action is seen to create an undesired outcome? [MEntity] No, it would not interfere with choice, but enhance it. Even within your single box, or your single day, you learn from experience how to anticipate the outcome of a choice before it is acted upon. Your capacity to anticipate within a day could be likened to our capacity to see probabilities on the metaphorical scale of the year. To be clearer in our response, we would have to include one more dimension of consideration with our visual. In "reality" there is never one calendar on that wall, but a multitude of calendars superimposed one over the other, over the other. The progression that one makes throughout the "year" would "weave" among those calendar layers, if you will. Each calendar layer representing a probability from the moment. Your choices determine what layer of calendar you are living. For instance, your choice to lash out in defense against an offense vs generating a creative, peaceful solution might be the difference between one layer and another layer of the year's calendar day. [QUESTION] Is this how parallels are constantly splitting off, based on the infinite number of choices that can be made? [MEntity] Yes. Our analogy of the Calendar Layers would be the equivalent of Parallels, or Dimensions. This is why when one might ask about a past life at one point in the current life, there may be a list of pasts that are linearly linked to the current life's moment, but at another point in the life, that moment may have a very different set of linear links to the past, because it is resonant to a different layer of the calendar now. [QUESTION] Though we do not see it on the physical plane, is it possible for us to jump around on different levels based on our choices, or new choices, or are we "stuck" on the same calendar? [MEntity] Shifting Parallels (calendars) happens on a regular basis, and happens on different scales from the Personal to the Global. Personal shifts in parallels can be generated through the accumulation of DECISIONS that then lead to pivotal CHOICES. We differentiate Decision from Choice. A Decision could be akin to HOW one takes the next step, and CHOICE is WHERE one takes the next step. Most Decisions create a path, and that path leads to a Choice. And that Choice can lead to generating a new parallel, or merging with another parallel. We will conclude this response with the clarification that the concept that "everything happens at once" should not be taken as a literal concept, but rather as a description of the capacity to comprehend on larger scales. For instance, when we said that all Roles within an Entity are "cast at once," we did not mean this literaly, but more in the same way that one might say that in the course of a day of baking, the chocolate chip cookies were all baked at once, and the ginger snaps were baked at once, etc. Even on the scale of Tao there is order, and that order has a progression, regardless of how massive the scale of comprehension. Time is simply a means for creating "space" within denser dimensions to allow for comprehension of progression. [QUESTION] You said cadence members spend the most lifetimes together. Is there an average number or percentage range of lifetimes that you spend with your primary cadence and raw # cadence mates? I’ve only asked for shared lifetime counts on a few people, trying to get a sense of how all that fits into things. [MEntity] We would say that Cadence Members spend more than 70% of lifetimes together in some meaningful capacity, in general. That 70% would include those lifetimes where at least one of the fragments is incarnated, but another is acting as non-physical guide or support. [QUESTION] At one of these open forums a while back Michaels mentioned that no one in attendance then had much support in their lives. What exactly is this phenomenon; support that is? What does it look like? Where are we placed with it and without it and what's it mean i.e., its significance? [MEntity] Every fragment has support in its life or it would die, but many do not consciously recognize the support, or do not consciously allow the support. Support could be said to be the network of life forces that are required for any Sentient to manifest in form. Support is active on the smallest of scales, such as within an individual lifetime, but are also vital on larger scales, as in terms of Universes; Universes are organized in groups of 12, and each plays a position of support for the others. The support of which we speak at the moment is the support that exists, with or without your Personality's permission or acceptance. It is dynamic and energetic, yet tangible. For instance, someone had to raise you. Someone had to heal you at certain points. Someone had to teach you. Someone has inspired you. Someone has fed you. The amount of support one has within the life is phenomenal when truly comprehended in terms of what it has contributed to your being here, now. The degree to which one allows, seeks, or invites support is often proportional to the degree of awareness and consciousness. Support occurs on an Intimate Level, Inspirational Level, Comrade or Classmates Level, and a Guiding or Guides Level. We have elaborated upon this in other exchanges regarding the subject of the Support Circle of 12 for every fragment. We will ask Troy to include that article in the final transcript for your further study and application. Note: See Support Circle of 12. A search for 'support circle' is advised as well, since there have been multiple transcripts that reference the concept. [QUESTION] I've just started recognizing the differences in intensity and extremes between different soul ages and different internal monadal experiences as an effect on how Chief Features display. Is this true for all of the various overleaves -- i.e., even frequencies and energies? As a general rule, is the slide between negative and positive poles less dramatic with age and experience? [MEntity] Your observation is valid. What you describe is the spectrum of perspectives, experiences, and comprehensions that range between the poles. As the soul grows older, it moves from a more reactionary bounce between the poles, into a response-oriented pendulum swing between the poles, and then into what might be best visualized as an arc between the poles. This arcing is what could be said to be the "Third Perspective." The older soul still has access to the range between the poles, but from a third perspective, or a perspective that is more "outside" of the self, from a higher elevation, an arc. This allows for a non-attachment to the experiences, comprehensions, and perspectives, while still participating in them. The evolution through the use of the spectrum between the poles of overleaves then could be described as a progression from attachment to detachment to non-attachment, or reactionary to responsive to True Choice, or from bouncing to swinging to arcing. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  7. MICHAEL SPEAKS 121309 Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to each of you. We are here. [QUESTION] Hello, Michael. 1)Who was this mysterious Mikao Usui who created the modern Reiki System? 2) What were his overleaves? 3) From your perspective, what is this REIKI or SPIRITUAL ENERGY that practitioners channel...4) what are the factors that have made this practice so popular around the world? [Michael Entity] For purposes of this format of exchange, we will share a brief response to each of the questions. The fragment known as Mikao appears to be a Warrior-cast Priest who recognized the validity of subtle energies and their capacity for being harnessed and directed. The energy that is harnessed and directed is not unique to the practice called "Reiki," but that system does help bring tangible tools to the process of using the energy. The same energy could be said to be shared from the exchange of laughter, awe, and happiness or pleasure. The modern system referred to as "Reiki" has become highly political and hierarchical in many circles, but we see that this has begun to deconstruct and return to its roots in many ways. Both the political structure and this deconstruction have their flaws. The political structure is a false hierarchy of learning that can bring about false healers who have gained credibility by simply paying enough money to buy a label. The deconstructing of this political structure requires little more than reading a book and can bring about delusional exchanges of "healing" that are little more than nice thoughts. Knowing the extremes of that spectrum, we would say that the only valid method for developing the strengths capable for use of energy in this way would be through practice, feedback, and tangible evidence of effect. The energy that is used is the basic "life force" of your universe. This life force could be understood through the analogy of a computer screen that allows for a cursor to move through the pixels and light, showing up as itself wherever it is, but literally connected entirely to everything on that screen. "Reiki" then could be said to be that affect that allows for the repair of a pixel, or pixels, bringing light back, so to speak, to areas of the screen that have dimmed or have gone out. In the same way that a piano can be played by any of you, so can Reiki (or energetic healing) be practiced. However, to continue the analogy, in the same way that one can simply peck at the keys, or pound on the keys to make noise, so too can some "healers" generate energy that has no effect, or only brings irritation. And in the same way that one can learn to play a piano beautifully on one's own, through an instructor, or through a hierarchical fee plan, so can healing be learned. The piano and the noise it generates is up to the player, and how that player learns to play is up to the player. It just so happens that "Reiki" has come to be a recognizable system, and for that matter can lend itself as a strong platform for the work that a healer might wish to do. No direct harm can come from false healers, but irritation, and distraction from legitimate care, can certainly have effects. [QUESTION] I'd like to know something about the Lemurians and their cycle off that you mentioned to me as happening 35,000 years ago. You said they were “a sentient species who cycled off en masse”, and that this was profound for my cadre (c1). [COMMENT] I'd like to know how an entire sentient species can have simultaneous cycling-off [QUESTION] did we run them off? [Michael Entity] The Lemurians were a species that were of a finer density than your human bodies, and some may have remembered them as "etheric," or as having "Light Bodies," but they were more like the luminescent "jelly-fish" of your ocean. They were a sentience living through very delicate bodies and this lent them to isolation and insularity away from other species. Their process of cycling off would be akin to how you understand a reunited entity moving from the Astral to the Causal in its evolution. Their species was few in number, relatively speaking, and their lives were of great length, structured tightly in groups, so that large groups would reach a point of cycling off at the same time. We say "at the same time," but we mean this in terms of relative perception of time; it could take several years for the exit of a group, but once it started, it was an exponential process. Some of our students who remember the Lemurians were deeply affected by the exit of the last of the Lemurian groups. [QUESTION] So Ramtha was a jellyfish-like entity? [Michael Entity] No. Ramtha is a conglomeration of the channel's own higher self (Essence), her ego, and then some legitimate guidance by a cycled-off entity of Human sentience. We wish to point out that the conglomeration we describe as "Ramtha" does not diminish the value of what is taught to those who find it meaningful. It just happens that the Sage/King entity enjoys theatrics as their Medium. [QUESTION] So, they weren't going through the Soul Age Levels while on earth -- but were more like using earth in an Astral-like manner? [Michael Entity] No, they progressed in Soul Age as any other sentient species extant, but progressed in groups so that the cycling off for each was in conjunction with masses of other fragments. [QUESTION] So we did have some interaction clearly, even if they were isolated? [Michael Entity] Yes, there was a great deal of interaction between your species, but in measured and highly-structured ways. [QUESTION] oh, so none of us ever actually had lives as lemurians? [Michael Entity] Not that we know of. To switch bodies in such a way is not something that is very appealing to sentience, unless there are hundreds of years of integration and communication between the species. [QUESTION] Contrary to what Michael teaches I feel that sometimes my guides tap into my future, sometimes seemingly to a future that just happens, please comment on this phenomenon. Time is an illusion is it not? [Michael Entity] What you experience is not in contradiction to our teaching, and we understand what you describe. We refer to these as Sequences and Vectors. These are events that, when lined up and feasible, fall like dominoes in a momentum toward an end. It is not predestination, anymore than a line of dominoes are guaranteed to fall perfectly every time, but the lining up, or the Sequences and Vectors, do tend to bring about fairly predictable paths. [QUESTION] sequences?, please elaborate [Michael Entity] A Sequence is an arrangement of Agreements or Events that create a pattern toward an end result. A Vector is that "point of no return" so to speak, that is a mathematical momentum toward that end result. Time is only an "illusion" when you are not experiencing it. It is a disservice to pretend that the Physical Plane is void of the experience of Time. If you have Emotions, you experience Time. So while you, as Personality, must take your next steps in Time, your Essence does not have the same constrictions and can work to arrange probabilities in ways that are appealing to your Personality; that is, if the Personality is manifesting Essence. Even your Personality is not restricted entirely by the function of Time, as it has Imagination as a source for planning, memory, and choice. [QUESTION] Good afternoon Michael; Yesterday evening we were discussing the "close but no cigar" meetings between concurrents. I would like you to elaborate on what occurs when one of your concurrents dies...does the Essence's other concurrents "pick up" where that one interests, queries, lessons etc "leave off" this lifetime,in other words sort of an assimilation? [Michael Entity] In most cases, no. The lives of Concurrents are their own, and though Essence will absorb the experiences from all Concurrents, it does not shift the life of one onto the life of another. There would be little point to that. However, in some cases the Personality of one Concurrent becomes aware of the validity of the concept of Concurrents and that can open that Personality to exploring the life of another Concurrent in some way, either through Imagination, or through bleedthrough. [QUESTION] bleedthrough? [Michael Entity] Yes, bleedthrough; a natural exchange of energy that comes from intimacy. In other words, it is no different than the experience of feeling resonance with a past life when that life resonates to a current life. [QUESTION] a cosmology question :) - the Universe is said to be 14 billion years old. Recognizing the problem with 'time', when were the cadres/entities 'cast' out from Tao in relationship to the creation of this Universe? Before, during, or after? (I have been told my essence/soul is also 14 billion 'years' old -I am curious how this 'fits'). [Michael Entity] Cadres and Entities are cast over and over within a Universe with every return to Tao, which includes the choice of your Essence's new Role, new Entity, new Cadre, etc for every Grand Cycle. The measurement of time for that Universe and its first casting of Entities is always relative to the Planetary System of the Sentience at the time of such a question. [QUESTION] the earth is said to be just over 4 billion years old so we were cast 'last' 4 billion years ago? Where does the 14 billion 'age' come in? or was this in relationship to a prior planetary system of sentience? [Michael Entity] What we mean is that if we were answering this question for another fragment in another planetary system with a different measurement of time, we would have to answer with a very different scale. In terms of time measurement as can be understood in any practical sense, we can safely say that your (and our) current Sentience is at least 14 billion years old, "give or take" a billion or so. Keep in mind, however, that your ROLE may not be as "old" since you have returned to Tao multiple times in Grand Cycles. [QUESTION] Since there are/were 3 of us present that are from Entity 6 of Cadre 2 may I have any Biographical information that you have easy access to along with perhaps a Theme or Task for this particular Entity? If that question is too broad, feel free to pick and choose what you think may be helpful. [Michael Entity] It could be said that a common denominator, or theme, among Cadre 2, Entity 6 is that of SENSITIVITY. This Sensitivity can show up in different ways that range from crippling sensitivity to profound healing capabilities. This particular Entity is "touched" by life and experiences in ways that are often difficult to understand by other fragments. This particular Entity is often seen as the "open wound" of the Cadre, where the greatest traumas and extremes are drawn in by the fragments. This openness to life in such a sensitive manner can also lead to an awareness of subtleties that, when harnessed and implemented, can come across as works of "miracles" or profound transformation for those within proximity of that fragment's life. [QUESTION] Since this is a 6 numbered entity, is that reflective in its Priestly energies in any way? [Michael Entity] It is true there would be "priestly" qualities inherent in the dynamic of any Entity 6, lending it a deep Compassion or a strong Zeal. In addition to that mathematical dynamic, Entity 6 emphasizes the spectrum of experiences between the negative pole of Connection and the positive pole of Harmony. In Connection, the fragments of any Entity 6 may find themselves in positions that pivot other lives, or that they may move from one support or social circle to another throughout the life, always drawing a line of connections among fragments or groups like a "connect-the-dot" exploration. In Harmony, the fragments no longer find themselves splintered among various parts of the life, and/or fragmented by relationships to various people in the life, but find that everything plays a part in an overall Harmony. There is much more that could be said, but we feel this little bit will help add to the understanding of the dynamics of this Entity. [QUESTION] am wondering about alkaline water. I've been reading about adding alkaline drops to water or getting a water ionizer. Is this just hype? Or is it a helpful, healthful concept? Water Ionizers, btw, are very expensive. Do alkalization drops do similar things--if any? P.S. I know our channel isn't thrilled with health questions. But I trust his ability to step aside. [Michael Entity] As far as we can see, most water is already alkalized to a degree that would have benefit, if benefit is valid. We do not see that this is the case, but may often be just the opposite if the alkalizing is high. There are several populations already ingesting high levels of alkaline water on long-term bases, and we see this as having little effect in terms of improved health. We think that this would be a matter of individual diagnosis in terms of an individual's "ph" levels, and that in those cases there are balancing remedies that might include alkaline drops, or antacid remedies. We do know that "ph" balance in the blood is important, and that this is a function of the kidneys in a way that can be measured. In that regard, it would be fairly easy to have a diagnosis, if it is of concern. The consumption of various greens and vegetables as a large part of the diet can help to minimize the acidity of blood that can come with age. It is not that alkalizing of water (or diet) is not important, but that it is important only for specific individuals in the same way that any remedy would be. [QUESTION] You've discussed "templates," and in an answer to me, you said, "Once that flexible template is in place, any Entity or Cadre can "play" the role for any group or individual as a means to teach, giving rise to a multitude of variations." You said you've played a role as both Ra and the Delphi Oracle. Are you using a template or playing a role when you work through channels at this time in your teaching history? [Michael Entity] We no longer have to play roles or use templates, except through those channels who wish to speak on our behalf, instead of allowing us to speak for ourselves. We do not mind, though. In those cases, it could be said that we are, in fact, using a template, but not in the sense that we were speaking about in your quote of us from a previous exchange. Our "voice" is just as valid among those channels who speak on our behalf, when the speaking is reflective of our teaching. [QUESTION] How would you speak for yourself? What would that be like? [Michael Entity] When it is "our voice" vs the voice of the channel on our behalf, there is little discrepancy from the consistent build of our teaching, especially in a way that would identify a channel as unique to that discrepancy for any great length of time. There will always be new additions to our teaching in a way that only one or two channels deliver initially, but the valid additions propagate. This does not mean that those discrepancies are not valid as their own teaching, or that they are in conflict with our teaching, but it is one of the ways for discerning the authenticity of our "voice," if that is of interest to a student. [QUESTION] so is it just personal preference when we think something "sounds" more like you? [Michael Entity] How we "sound" is far less important than what is claimed that we are saying. We do have a kind of "checklist" for validation of our voice through a channel that any student can use for navigating the various channels, regardless of what we "sound" like. We will include this in the final transcript for this chat. This checklist would be one that does NOT reflect the validity of the information that a channel is conveying, as the information may have validity of its own regardless of its consistency or lack of consistency with our evolving teaching, but only as a means to discern the proximity and clarity of contact with us and our intentions. Navigating the validity of channels and their proximity and clarity of contact with us can be complicated; we have "channels" who actually do not channel us but who speak consistently and accurately on our behalf, and we have channels who work directly with us who distort the information to such a degree that this information only serves to distract from our teaching. The exploration of such topics as this can be "dangerous" territory for some, and it is not an exploration that can be undertaken accurately without a high level of intellectual and emotional maturity, as it can easily prompt the younger imprinting of hierarchy, competition, and conflict. When we say that it can be "dangerous territory," we are not speaking in terms of caution or concern, because with or without our suggestions for validation, the younger imprinting will find its ways into our circles of students. We were merely speaking to the concern that some may have about any process for validating the authenticity of a channel if one were to be in place. There is great fear in that regard, though our students will eventually find it to be an important, and non-threatening process, at some point when the younger imprinting is shed. In other parallels where we work with you, the process of validation is as important and as uncomplicated as validating a surgeon's claims. Without the process of validation, the door is wide open for us to work with a wide swath of students and non-students, but it minimizes much of the potential for actual learning. Without the process of validation there is also a consistent division nurtured among the various channels as certain groups form around the discrepancies that are unique to a channel, which then undermines much of the point of our teaching. Validation is vital on many levels, but only for those who choose for that to be a relevant ingredient in their process of learning and discerning. Many have not considered the possibilities beyond the current courtesies that increase such variations and gaps among the channels. We will conclude here. Good night to each of you. Goodbye. *** A BASIC CHECKLIST for validating the clarity, consistency, and presence of Michael through a person claiming to channel Michael, regardless of the "voice" being used: We will never tell you what to do. We will never predict. We will never speak to you in ways that only seek to comfort you. We do not use affectionate language as a means of socializing, or as a means to appeal to you. We will never shame you. We will never do the work of your life for you. We teach a philosophy that naturally encourages study and practice, if that philosophy is going to be valid, but it will not do the work of your life for you, or make your life easier. Only your study and implementation of the teaching can do such a thing. We refer to Past Lives as a means to increase your capacity for choice in the current life, but never as a means to simply explain away your conditions and experiences. We will never teach that your current life is a result of, or an imposition from, your Past Lives, but that your most relevant Past Lives are because of your current life choices. Our teaching is an evolving body that builds upon itself, but does not replace or displace itself. We do expand upon concepts that are often previously conveyed or interpreted as concluded, but this expansion is not a replacement or displacement, and will only add dimension that is consistent to the evolution. When we introduce a new aspect of our teaching, it propagates among our channels and does not become unique to any one channel for any great length of time. We do not make sensational, urgent, or conditional announcements. We do not do healing, or "energy work," as this is a form of interference and potential karma. We do not work with any other entity in any way as any means to communicate or convey our teaching. We come to all who ask, but this does not mean we are heard, understood, or clearly communicated. We come to all who ask, but this does not mean that we come through any channel who claims he or she is channeling us. We and our teaching cannot be misrepresented because it is either us and our teaching, or it is not; we and the teaching are either heard clearly, or not. We will always trust that you will hear what you most need or want to hear. We will never restrict our communication to only what you want to hear, and we will never impose upon you what we see as your needing to hear. We cannot access private information about any fragment. Private information in the Akashic Records is as private as the individual Personality deems it to be, until that Personality deems it otherwise. Individual Personalities will always be the authority over their own information. Overleaves are not private information. Accessing the Akashic Records is part of our study, and your questions help us in that process. You cannot ask your questions, or for Overleaves, too many times. We do not evade or avoid questions that seek to help a student in a process of validation. We do not require questionnaires, birth information, or photographs as a means to access your Overleaves; that is a tool for the channel, not for us. Our channels are never displaced by us, but only merge with us as a means of communicating for us. There will always be a percentage of consciousness of the channel contributing to even the clearest of information, accurately or inaccurately. Everything we teach extends from the premise that every fragment carries the primary tool of Choice. We will always emphasize the tool of Choice as your most empowering tool. We state that "all is choice," but this does not preclude the responsibility of learning how to choose in ways that contribute to you and your species evolution. We make the statement that "all is choice" as a fact of existence, not as a statement of permission. We are not out to save the world, have no interest in recruiting students, and do not find it necessary to alter our teachings in a way that allows for consumption by the masses. We do not expect you to take this checklist at face value, but we offer it as a means to bring to light the patterns of consistency that establish the strength of our proximity to you through a channel, keeping in mind that the lack of proximity means only a lack of proximity. It does not have any bearing on the validity, or lack of validity, of a channel's teaching or his or her interpretation of our teaching.
