  1. I'm just creating this topic so that we can talk about Validating our Entities. In the study library, we have quite a bit written on validating being from Entity 1, 3 and 7- and we have a lot of info point blank for validating those from Entity 2 and 6. (Albeit for Entity 1, we don't have any info on how their -Pole "Simplicity" shows up so we should ask about that some time.) However we don't have any info on general validation themes for those from Entity 4, and have very little of substance for Entity 5. If anyone would like to ask about Validation Themes for these two, such as have been asked here, that would be great. Because then we'd have at least a comprehensive catalog to start discerning and giving this context more practical uses rather than just "oh hey, you're from this soul group and i'm from that one". Time to give it more life. :)
  2. February 28, 2002 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [M_Entity] We are here. One moment. Hello to all of you. We will begin with a quick Energy Report for the weeks between March 2 through March 15. We had spoken of some “awe-inspiring” event, either private or public, that seemed to be generating for the Older Souls on the planet. We believed to this to have had some root in manifesting in February, but we do not see that this came to pass. We can NEVER predict an event; we can only share what we see as probabilities and even the highest probabilities are not to be relied upon, merely used as a guide. Because of the vague quality of this event and its potentially different meanings for each Older Soul, this makes it more difficult to gauge. At this point, we will merely point out that what we had seen as a probability, still is, but we can only say the time frame has extended for its manifestation. It is significant enough that many of you will easily report that something either privately, independently, OR something publicly, struck you with a moving sense of awe. We believe you will know that has happened synchronistically when several of you report similar experiences to each other. On other, more common levels, the energy in general seems stable and the focus is moving toward literally, the weather. Drastic shifts in temperature and climate seem to be the distraction over the next few weeks. As we have shared before, in other exchanges, the weather is directly linked to the basic, shared emotional state of a population. That emotional climate is then reflected in the weather. The delays in effect are varying from geographical location to geographical location, and population to population, but in general, the weather shows the emotional climate of the previous 3 months. In the United States, the Emotional climate of the West is usually around 6 months behind in the weather, while the East is sometimes less than 30 days. We will remind you, but will elaborate more in our next exchange, that the shared energy has so far been focused on the implementation of the GOAL for the year. As the season of Spring moves closer, a shift toward the MODE may alter many fragment's contextual focus. When we say the focus has been on the GOAL, we mean that the shared context has been about taking action, asking questions about what to DO, making changes in directions and plans, determining how what you are doing fits with what others are doing. When the shift of focus comes to the Mode, the context will be more about intimacy and relationships. We will conclude the Energy Report. We would like to note that included in the Energy of the planet at this time is a great deal of unrest from obvious areas and mentalities, but to report every potential disaster or attack would be useless to most of our students. We do not see a point in emphasizing the dangers of the Physical Plane in this context. We do not have to remind you that this time frame is not an easy one, nor a particularly peaceful one, in general. Attacks will happen. That is as useful as we can be in that area. We will now take questions. We understand this is in Open Floor evening, though we will also respond to questions about the energy report. [SusanSF] As to our community I’m sensing the same. A hidden has been uncovered that I want to respond compassionately. This is not a personal but a community I would like clarification on for All of us. It came from a validation from the astral dream time that could affect us All. [M_Entity] And what is your question, Susan? [SusanSF] Do I do anything about it or just let it ride? Or I can pass on to the next in queue. [M_Entity] Though we are not completely clear on your question, we do think you are referring to a phenomenon that is occurring for many of the Older Souls, which is an exploration of many potential catastrophes and disasters as they may manifest for people. [SusanSF] In our community…. [M_Entity] For some, the experiences are being taken literally as signs of potential disaster. This may or may not be true. We can only say that part of the evolution of an Older Soul is in learning to interpret his/her emotional realm and astral experiences in ways that are applicable to the life. In short, it is your choice in what to do with what you know. In most instances where a prophecy is valid, any verbal sharing of that knowledge is rarely heeded. Until intuition and dreams are commonly understood, and alarmists stop predicting catastrophes each month, most will not hear even the most founded warnings. [ludmila] What can you tell us about our individual guides and angels? Do they have overleaves and are they our discarnate ET's or TC's? [M_Entity] Guides do not have Overleaves. Unless you are referring to a Physical Plane Guide, such as a Tour Director, which we believe you do not mean. We do not differentiate between “angels” and “guides,” in terms of nonphysical support and assistance. Most of your more intimate and “felt” presences of Guidance do tend to come primarily from discarnate Entity Mates, Cadence Members, Essence Twins, Task Companions, and Cadre Mates. [ludmila] What is a tour director? [M_Entity] We would define a “tour director” as a human being in a position to direct a group of fragments through a popular setting, pointing out its history, features, and entertainment, etc. In general, ALL fragments have at least 3 nonphysical Guides. [MaryBV] Could Michael please tell me what percentage of Cadre 1, entity 1 is cycled off? Of those remaining on the physical plane, what is the average soul age? [M_Entity] We see currently that 23% of Cadre One, Entity One is Cycled Off. The average Soul Age is 3rd Old. We did not include those who are Cycled off in that average, though we did include those who are not extant, but still within the cycles of incarnation. [kathryn41] (If this is too personal, I will withdraw the question) Four of us in this community are questioning whether we are a working quadrate. We wish to know how best to determine if this is so, how to validate our relationships with each other, and, if we are a quadrate, how to gain a more a conscious awareness of our project. [M_Entity] We encourage you to assume you are a Quadrate. Following the draw to work or socialize in a certain group is where your answer lies. Within that exploration, your Tasks will become evident. The validation can be done internally and externally. Internal validation is simply that you have determined it is true; there is no need to “test” that knowing. External validation would be if the other fragments in the group agree with your perception and knowing. [SusanSF] Could that include true study, besides true work then? [M_Entity] True Validation includes BOTH internal and external. The way to bring to light the combined goal of the Quadrate is simply to determine if you share a common interest and project at all. Whoever appears to have been the initiation behind the group would share what she believes are valid aspirations for that group. Knowledge will, by default, step in to refine those ideas and aspirations. In response to Susan's sub-question: The “Trues” that support the Life Task/True Work would inherently be included, though not necessarily as obviously. [JNelson] What is guilt? [M_Entity] Guilt is pointless self-punishment. It is entirely based in Chief Feature. There are 7 Guilts, then, linked to each Chief Feature. It is a prolonged version of “learning a lesson.” We have shared extensively on this subject and Troy will include in this transcript a copy of our deeper treatment of that subject. [Talyn] Do our discarnate spirit guides ever “resign or hand us off” to a new guide during a single incarnation or lifetime? As in a prearranged “agreement” on the other side? Particularly if our task companions this lifetime are discarnate guides? [M_Entity] We would not describe a Guide as “handing you off” to another Guide, but there are Guides who are temporary, and Guides who are “permanent” for the life of the Fragment. Each Fragment has at least the 3 Guides permanently for the life. The three Guides are specifically related to the Centers/Axes. Each working with that element of that Fragment's life, such as the EMOTIONAL/Higher EMOTIONAL Guide, the INTELLECTUAL/Higher INTELLECTUAL, etc. [Talyn] So it would not be totally unusual to sense the presence of a newly discarnate recently deceased guide? [M_Entity] It is fairly unusual for a recently deceased Fragment to become a Guide, though it does happen, of course. In most cases, that which “feels” like a Guide is merely the etheric presence of the Personality remaining attached to the relative or friend as a means to help comfort in both directions. That is part of the process of the 7th Internal Monad. The successful completion of the 7th Internal Monad is not merely in dying; it is in comprehending the extended impact on those who were attached to that Personality. [LisaC] Is there anything in particular that Michael would like to impart to us here now, other than the e-report? (kind of a just-for-fun question ;-) [M_Entity] No. Though we make ourselves available as a teacher and share in high interactivity, we never solicit or determine a topic or “impart” without your questioning to generate the exchange. We have a lot to share; we have a lot to teach, and all of the questions have not been asked, but we have nothing personally to impart. [Val] Healing: I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves & others, physical and spiritual (Buddha, Jesus etc) many say they heal in the name of religious figures can you comment on this, and on what would you recommend to us in order to succeed in healing ourselves and others: from Mike [M_Entity] “Religious Figures” give “permission” to a Fragment to use energy that is easily available already. That method helps a fragment “call on” the healing energy of the Higher Moving energy (Buddha) or Higher Emotional (Christ), both linked to the theme of the Logos taught through the Manifestations of the Infinite Soul in your example. Because most Fragments believe deeply that they are less-than, it makes sense to call upon a “higher power” for use of energy in healing. In truth, that energy, however accessed, will always be from the source of your own Essence. The greatest method of healing, in terms of channeling a specific energy, has been for Older Souls to think in terms of RESONATION, not “sending” energy to another. Creating a sustained resonance of healing gives the fragment focused upon an opportunity to align their own energy with that resonance. Those who are sensitive enough can sense in another where the energy is blocked or inhibited, can then generate a resonance for the ill one, and allow that Fragment to use it as needed. We remind you that not all illnesses and disease are necessarily interested in being “healed” by the common standards. There are beautiful experiences for a soul in many sicknesses and diseases. Knowing this, a form of healing can sometimes NOT be about alleviating the illness, but discussing and comprehending the impact of that illness. [sam-nemo] How can we attract guides, people or entities with similar goals to ours? [M_Entity] There are parts of the life in which the Personality manages, and parts in which Essence manages. “Attracting” Fragments, physical or nonphysical, is managed by Essence. Personality need only communicate to Essence if there is a particular interest determined. Communicating to Essence is as simple as thinking. If you choose to be clearer, set aside time before and/or after sleep to softly communicate to Essence what you seek. Essence has a limited “view” of the lifetime, and without the conscious input from Personality, the lifetime can be in agreement with or against the wishes of a Personality. When Personality is clear in what it wants, or seeks to attract, Essence is there. We will conclude here, then. Good night.
  3. OMW - Aug 6, 2011 - Validating Your Profile Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] Hello to everyone. We are here. We will begin with discussion about the concept of Validation. We have shared on this subject many times, but will do so again, as it is a subject worth revisiting on a regular basis, or as necessary for rekindling the active process of validating. We have described the processes of Validation to include INTERNAL Validation, EXTERNAL Validation, and TRUE Validation. INTERNAL Validation is the process of determining what is valid and true for the self, and this does not have to be valid and true for anyone else. EXTERNAL Validation is the process of determining what is valid and true for others, and this is not always valid or true for the self. TRUE Validation is the process of matching Internal and External Validation into a kind of wholeness. The Validation process is never about absolutes, and is always about personal truths. Truth that is from the Global or Universal Levels of Truth require no validation for them to be Truths, but Internal and External Validation can help one to work with those truths, reject them, work around them, etc. For instance, Gravity is true for your planet and everyone on it, regardless of whether you have validated this for yourself, or not. However, if you fall down, you now have an experience that may validated the truth of Gravity for you, Internally validating it. If you see someone else fall down, you may then have witnessed the validity of Gravity for others, Externally validating it. This is True Validation. But in terms of Validation, it only means that it is now "true for you." However true and valid Gravity may be, there may be some who refuse to validate it for themselves, or they ignore the implications of what falling down may mean. This kind of logic and equation, if you will, remains the same for Universal, Global, and Personal Truths. NONE of them are true and valid for YOU until you Validate them. Validating from only one side, Internally or Externally, does not mean a truth is half-valid, or not valid, but that it is only true IN THOSE CONTEXTS. For instance, Love is a Universal Truth. You may have validated that it exists Externally, because you see it play out around you, and hear about it, and know others claim to have experienced it, but you have never truly grasped the validity of it for yourself. This means that Love is true and valid Externally, but not Internally. For YOU. Conversely, you may have grasped the magnitude of what Love truly is, moving unconditionally and with agape through your social and intimate relationships, accepting yourself and others, but having a hard time seeing this same state played out among your fellow humans in the world; seeing a great lack of love around you in others' lives. You know that Love is True. For YOU. But you have not Externally validated it in a way that it shows up in the world around you. Keeping this difference between Internal Validation and External Validation in mind can free you from a great deal of confusion and frustration when one is lacking. We often see our students using Validation as a form of defense against participation in the world, or as a means to delude themselves, or resist ideas and insights, because they have decided what is true Internally, but forget that it can also be validated Externally. Some of our students decide what their Overleaves and Role are, and regardless of feedback or evidence to the contrary, or evolving understanding through study, will continue to uphold that those Overleaves are valid. And they are. To them. And some think this is as far as Validation needs to go. Others may receive an inaccurate set of Overleaves from a channel and then work hard to make those Overleaves fit, because this set has been presented as valid, Externally, via the channel. Some think this is as far as Validation needs to go. In other words, Validation is reduced to "If I say it is true, that is all that matters." or "If [a channel] says it is true, then it must be." To some extent, both of those statements are true and valid, but only if you decide they are. Determining what is true for you, or accepting as truth what is true for others, are fair ways to work through experiments and explorations of the Physical Plane, but neither of these bring wholeness, and neither of these allows you or Essence to be fully present in your world. True Validation is not "easy," and it is often a dangerous obstacle to evolution, but it is also one of the only ways to truly evolve. When we say that it is "not easy," we mean that it is not often the case that you can find Internal and External agreement for validation. When we say that it can be a "dangerous obstacle to evolution," we mean that sometimes when both Internal and External validation matches up, those involved can resign from validating or questioning beyond that. An example of the first might be a homosexual teen who knows "who he is," and yet his family insists he is wrong about, or for, his sexuality. An example of the latter might be something like that which comes from cult thinking, such as "Jim Jones," "Manson," or "Heaven's Gate." This is why we build into our teaching an insecurity or instability that will always remain as a means to keep our students questioning, grappling, trying to make sense, taking separate stances, etc., because it is a teaching that supports your evolution, and is not meant to provide comfort and sanctuary. As soon as all of our students would agree, this teaching would no longer be a teaching. We share all of this with you because the process of Validation is not as simple as deciding what the truth is, and it is not as simple as someone else deciding what the truth is, and it is not as simple as everyone agreeing. It could be said, then, that Validation is "an active, conscious, constant navigation of Internal and External truths that can never be presumed conclusive." Before we get into the Overleaves, we will share one more consideration regarding Validation. Validation is a Monadal Process: a process of returning to a state of wholeness that is compromised of seemingly contrary or divided forces or states. This Wholeness is ultimately greater than the sum of the parts. Validation, then, is a constant dance between Internal and External truths. When one insists on one or the other, division is the result, regardless of how true something may be Internally or Externally. But there is a solution, even if only temporary, along the way to True Validation. And along the way through True Validation. And that is through the truth of: I DO NOT KNOW. Or: THEY MAY NOT KNOW. Taking the example of the homosexual teen who has struggled with accepting his sexuality, and has done so with great love, but is rejected by family for having done so, with their insisting he is wrong or bad, how can Wholeness for the teen come from this? He would embrace these conflicting truths, allow them to exist, under the umbrella of "THEY MAY NOT KNOW" and "I DO NOT KNOW. In this case, "They May Not Know" would refer to the fact that the family may simply not understand that that this difference in sexuality is of no threat, no consequence, no sin, and nothing more than a small part of him. This grasping of their lack of knowing can help to cultivate patience, and to help deflect the personal feelings of rejection and hurt that come from their lack of knowing. "I DO NOT KNOW" might refer to the fact that he does not have the skills right now to manage the rejection, the necessity to educate them, the impact of their words, etc. NOT KNOWING is always a viable bridge between conflicting truths. It "buys you time," allows for patience, compassion, effort, awareness, insight, perception, etc to come into the process. To be even more inviting of those helpful qualities, it might be helpful to add: "It is okay for now... that I do not know." or "It is okay for now, that they do not know." All of what we have shared above can help in the process of validating your Profile, Overleaves, Essence, and all channeling that might come through our channels, as well as your explorations of self, relationships, choices, and life. It can also help you in moments of conflicting truths where the battle to impose an External Truth over yourself, or to impose an Internal Truth over others, is simply useless and pointless. True Validation never comes through imposition, but through education and invitation. If you find that you are uncomfortable with a truth, or trying to force a truth, it does not necessarily mean that this truth is not valid, but that you "do not know." And that is as profound to embrace as knowing. Now we will move this into application for validating your Overleaves. Before we take on specific questions, we will say that the above can be applied in this way: Your Overleaves can be Internally Validated by you through your understanding of the terminology and how those accurately describe and lend insight into how you understand yourself. Your Overleaves can be Externally Validated by others through your seeing the behavior and feedback of others in relation to you, as you gain this self-understanding. External Validation of your Overleaves does not necessarily mean that someone else decides, "yes, that term fits." To rely only on confirmation of terminology would never give you True Validation. But if you find that your Internal Validation of the terms as they help you understand yourself is also affecting how others respond and react to you, as well as how you respond and react to them, then you may have found True Validation. In any case of terminology where you may not KNOW, the next steps are education and invitation. Which is why we are here with you today. We will leave it to Geraldine to choose the order of the questioning, but we will now open the floor to your questions about specific elements of your Profile. We will offer what we can for help in your, at least, Internally Validating the term, and then your External Validation may come in time. FLOOR IS OPEN [Martha] my question is about true vs public/private - is that on the table? [MEntity] Yes, Martha. Formulate your question about this and we will respond. [Martha] some of the overleaves for me are so different between true - public - private that it seems it speaks to me not having my subs integrated or something along those lines especially the centering was completely different for each one so some help with understanding that is what I'm looking for [MEntity] The Public and Private sets of Overleaves are shortcuts to understanding how, in general, one wishes to be seen, and how one is seen. They do not speak to sub-personalities, but do speak to the facets/personas that one may have developed. In your case, your sets describe the distance between how you see yourself vs how others see you, or how you wish to present yourself vs how you tend to be received. [Martha] So I act like a server and look like a warrior? LOL [MEntity] Though personas/facets may be related to sub-personalities, they are not necessarily connected. [Martha] or act like a warrior and look like a server? [Martha] but all sage cast :) [Martha] it's confusing [MEntity] In your case, the profiles speak more to the fact that you find yourself falling into positions of subservience and nurturing on a rather regular basis, but because of the resentments that may come from that, you can show up as harsh, frustrated, coercive, pushy. To respond to the Sage Casting for both, it would simply mean that you will still be expressive in either case, and often in loud ways. [Diane_H] I would like more clarity on Server casting. How I use it, etc. You previously mentioned I mainly serve myself, which I agree with. But most of my days I act more Scholarly. [MEntity] Though the Role is how one "shines" in the world, it requires the presence, or Manifestation, of Essence for that to happen on any regular basis, and this is something a Personality may or may not strive to do in a lifetime. However, Casting will always show up, as it is how the Personality defaults to functioning on a day-to-day basis. To help with Validation of any Role or Casting Position, it can help to look at other qualities that describe that Axis. In the case of the Server, you would want to look at the fact that this is an Ordinal Casting, first. It is Ordinal/Inspirational, next. This means that on a day-to-day basis, you may find that you naturally gravitate toward one-on-one scenarios, rather than group scenarios, and because you are Inspirationally-Cast, it would mean these one-on-one scenarios may require some sort of Meaning for them to be at all. [Diane_H] That's true, I hadn't thought about the Inspirational aspect. [MEntity] If something of Meaning can be brought to the exchange, then it may be more comfortable or pursued, but meaningless or random social or intimate contact is usually not of interest to the day-to-day functioning. The Priest seeks to bring Meaning to the masses, or a path to the creation of Meaning, whereas the Server seeks to bringing Meaning to the individual, or at least a path to the creation of that Meaning. [Diane_H] That really fits. [MEntity] If Server Casting is valid for you, it may show up as your being an important contact person for an important handful of fragments over time as you connect them to Meaning. Looking further, it might show up as a Re-evaluation in your pursuit of your Goal, Reserved in your Relationships, Stoic in your Perceptions, and even Self-deprecating, in general, in your day-to-day functioning. Re-evaluation of your Goal would show up as your constantly ebbing and flowing, halting and launching, always questioning the progress of your pursuit of your actual Goal in terms of the Overleaf, but also in terms of general goals, such as career. [Diane_H] Wow, that's a bull's-eye [MEntity] Reservation in your Relationships would mean always monitoring yourself, sometimes with Restraint, and sometimes with Inhibition, as you build yourself up in contexts of intimacy and resonance. The Stoicism in Perceptions might show up as your always keeping cool, or appearing cool, unfazed, no matter what you see, or how something is perceived, sometimes through Tranquility, and sometimes through Resignation. Though you will have your spectrum of Overleaves that describe you in much more detail, your Casting Position is like a packaged form of that entire Axis, and it will permeate the other Overleaves in some way. [Diane_H] But I also have all neutral overleaves, how would I begin to tell the difference between sliding and effects of casting? [Diane_H] Or perhaps I slide to the Server overleaves more easily? [MEntity] Neutral Overleaves ALWAYS appear like other Overleaves, hence their being Neutral. Neutral Overleaves will always "slide" as a means for functioning, and they may often go to the Axis of the Role or Casting. In your case, for you to truly Flow, you will slide to Growth or Dominance. Both of these are on the Axes related to your Casting and Role. The GOAL will remain the same, which is to Flow, but your means of Flow is to sometimes turn your challenges into opportunities for Growth/Evolution, and sometimes into opportunities to return yourself to a position of Dominance/Leadership. Validating Neutral Overleaves will always go back to looking at the Positive and Negative Poles as descriptions of where you land. For example, you tend to "take charge" and move into Dominance because you have fallen into Inertia, or feeling like life is not going anywhere, or is moving in a direction you would rather alter, and though you will use Dominance to alter that Inertia, it is still for the sake of Freedom, or returning yourself to a state of peace, not a state of control. [Diane_H] Very true [ClaireC] My "True Work/Life Task" seems rather abstract, no doubt because it probably relates to the "Big Picture". I'm able to validate that I do find commonalities amongst apparently disparate people and groups of people, however, could you give me other examples of how the pursuit of my "Task" has manifested in my life? [MEntity] Yes, Life Tasks are deliberately broad in scope, because we do not wish to define for you how you fulfill your Tasks, but our descriptions should still be able to be found in evidence, if valid, and if the Task is actually pursued. In some cases the evidence is obvious and grand, and in some cases, it is "right under your nose," and completely missed. In your case, the pursuit of this Life Task is still being explored, and there are only hints of its fulfillment at the moment. Most paths of fulfillment of a Life Task are rather subtle in the beginning, and are often not even clear until retrospect is possible. Your pursuit seems to show up most often in two ways: through being "in the middle" between those who are divided in some way, and by pulling together concepts from various systems that can then be translated into something useful for yourself or someone else. You seem to do this so naturally that you might even take it for granted. [ClaireC] Yes, this really resonates with me. [MEntity] Some may dive into a system and that becomes a core around which other systems must adapt, which is just as valid a means of exploration as any, but in your case, your Life Task is to bring systems together like gears in a clock. And by "systems," we also include people. For now, with minimal evidence of your Life Task, we can offer this up as a means to help with your Validation: Beneath your relationships and philosophies, you may find a dominant undercurrent question that may be something like, "Now, how and where does THIS fit..." [ClaireC] That's exactly how I function....like a giant jigsaw puzzle [MEntity] Others may relate to that kind of questioning, as well, but in your case, it shapes a great deal of your choices and pursuits, all funneling into the Life Task to find or create commonalities/common ground within various systems. [carolyn] Hello it's vey good to meet you here. I would like to ask if stepping into a designated "space of information" regarding the nine realities, could be used as a valid way of creating greater understanding around the True Validation of Overleaves. Particularly if this involved working in tandem with an entity mate or someone from your Circle of Support [MEntity] If we are understanding you correctly, we would say that is a valid means for bringing True Validation. This would be a process of recognizing that you may not share the same understanding, insight, experiences, "reality," but that your intention to invite and educate so that you can build some shared understanding, insight, experiences, and even "reality," then. It can also be the same if you already share these things, so that feedback is felt to be trusted and honest when exploring who you are to yourself and someone else. [carolyn] Share the same Overleaves? [carolyn] Well an aspect of your overleaves to be more precise. [MEntity] If you already share a reality with someone, share truths, share perceptions, it can be helpful for the validation process, but only if the intention is for validation, and not justification. [carolyn] By "inviting" say the Enlightenment position from your Circle of Support to assist, could this help further validate as opposed to justify? [MEntity] Those who share the same overleaves may show up as completely different Personalities because of how those Overleaves are used, so this would need to be considered, but there would be core traits that can be used by both. An Enlightenment Position from your Support Circle, such as we are for you and our students, is quite helpful for validation of such esoteric, philosophical, and intangible elements of the self and life. The Enlightenment Position helps one to develop the structures through which experiences are organized, understood, and processed, and having that in place can help a great deal when seeking True Validation of anything. Have we understood your questions accurately? [carolyn] Yes, thank you. [Geraldine] I've never completely validated to my satisfaction that I'm Sage-casted Sage; however, I think that is in large part due to poor definitions for Old Soul Sages in positive poles. I've validated my saginess more from how I acted when younger more than as I've been during the past 20 years or so. Although, I'm accepting that Old Sages may be far more wise and involved with truth than we give them credit for being. But, I liked how you worked with Diane's casting based on her Axis. Would you do similarly for me, even though I have matching casting/role? [MEntity] First, we will say that in the case of Sage for Casting or Role, the "packaging" would include Acceptance, Power, and Idealism, even Greed. In your case, these would show up not only when you "shine," but as a means for functioning on a day-to-day basis. Regardless of Soul Age, Sages will ALWAYS be affected by issues of Acceptance, and regardless of the Goal, will always move in directions that support or encourage Acceptance. This progresses in cycles of pushing for Acceptance of the self and of pushing for Acceptance of others. Beneath every motivation of a Sage is somehow connected to the pursuit of being Accepted. [Geraldine] Yes, I'm prone to a sweeping feeling of being rejected on a heartbeat. [MEntity] In other words, Dissemination or Oration will always be related to a Sage's navigation of Acceptance. For example, most Sages who Orate do so as a means to compensate for a sense of not being Accepted. [carolyn] I was cast with Sage as a discarnate Essence Twin, Priest role and Artisan cast. They all seem to fit on some level. [MEntity] Common to the motivation of all Sages would be statements that might go something like "I am telling you this so you can accept me;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept that;" or "I am telling you this so you can accept you;" or "I am telling you this so I can express my acceptance." [Martha] Oh yeah, that fits [Martha] A Sage must have come up with the "Like" button [MEntity] Going further, all Sages take a stance of Authority or Oppression in terms of relating information to you. Sages RELATE to the world, or to others, in terms of Expression in the face of Oppression, or sharing information as an Authority on that particular information. Power Mode is about being Present, and this is how Sages make their presence known. This is why Sages can come across as "obnoxious" and as "know it alls," because this is their nature: to be themselves, even when you wish they would not, and to speak or communicate with confidence, even as they know there may be more to learn. Sages have PRESENCE, or in our system, POWER. Sages cannot relate to others without feeling PRESENT. Otherwise, they are invisible, and invisible equals non-existent. No other Role (or Casting) requires their Presence to be known as a means for experiencing existence. Sages must show up somehow, to someone, or they die, either or both metaphorically and literally. Going further, all Sages, regardless of Soul Age, see the world in terms of how it can be improved. Regardless of the Attitude of the Personality, there will always be a theme of communicating for the sake of improving what has been deemed in need of improvement, whether this is a slow conversation, an awkward moment, a relationship, or a paradigm. Sages may do this through telling you all of the steps necessary for that improvement (coalescence) or by simply telling you it needs to improve (naivety). To Geraldine: are you finding resonance with these descriptions? [Martha] (I know I am) [MEntity] We will continue. In terms of the validating your Overleaves, will offer up statements and questions that can help in determining the validity of your set of Overleaves: [Geraldine] (and yes, I was) [MEntity] For your GOAL, a helpful way to understand how it shows up in your life is to ask: Is this a state to which I constantly strive to return my life, or the lives of others? For instance, those with a Goal of Acceptance will always find a theme of effort to be accepted, accept themselves, accept others, and encourage others to accept each other. Always. No matter what is going on in the life, the pursuit of this quality represented by the Goal is always a motivating factor in every choice. The Positive Pole is usually the most obvious way to find the validation in terms of your aim, and the Negative Pole is usually the most obvious in terms of when you feel the most ineffective or defeated. In other words, someone in Discrimination may see it most obviously in terms of moving his life into a state of refinement, or Sophistication, but can also validate Discrimination by seeing that he turns to Rejection as a way of dealing with defeat or ineffectiveness. Acceptance can see that he aims for bringing more affection or Agape into his life and the lives of others, but responds with Ingratiation when feeling defeated or ineffective in doing so. For your MODE, it can most often be validated by what you seek to encourage out of others, and what you often see is missing in others. For instance, Passion Mode would tend to encourage Passion out of others, and may gravitate toward others who lack Passion. Observation Mode might encourage others to pay more attention, and often gravitate toward those who have a hard time seeing clearly. For the ATTITUDE, it may be most easily validated by seeing what it is you most often find yourself trying to convince in others. The Spiritualist will try to convince others to the possibilities, and the Cynic might try to convince others to see the other side of the obvious, while the Idealist would try to convince others that the self, relationship, life can always be improved upon. We do not have time in this format to go through each overleaf, but these efforts to convince can show up in both positive and negative ways, relative to the poles. For instance, the Spiritualist would seek to convince others of possibilities, and can do so through helping others verify those possibilities, or by encouraging blind faith, or belief. In another format, in another time, we can describe all of the overleaves in terms that are far more capable of use for validation. We will conclude here for today. Our channel is fading in focus. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
  4. [Excerpt from Michael Speaks: July 2004] [BingeBuddie] I know this may seem like a very basic question, but I have had a hard time validating my role in essence. With so many factors to consider such as casting, ET influence, overleaves, and entity position, etc. is there any definitive way to determine your role? I’ve went with channels in the past, but that causes confusion because it's difficult to tell what one input is as opposed to many inputs, such as Scholar having one and Artisan having 5. One channel Roles (Scholar, King, and Warrior) can concentrate in the midst of chaos right? So that’s kind of what I try to look at. Is that a good indicator? MEntity: No, we would not suggest using your ability to concentrate as your determining factor. The symptom of concentration vs. distraction in terms of Input is another of the simplifications that can happen when first learning about a part of the teaching. While it is true that an Essence with a single input can usually focus more intently in the midst of chaos, the influence of Personality, Imprinting, and Situations can greatly affect that level of concentration. What we would suggest as part of your validation of your Role in Essence is this: First, study the Roles. It is important to truly comprehend each Role. This means moving beyond the stereotypes that are a part of the initial stage of learning. Next, it is important to understand the vital differences between Essence and Casting. Casting affects how you behave “naturally”, how you express yourself to the world on a DAILY BASIS. Your Essence Role is most obviously comprehended in moments where you feel you SHINE. For instance: A Scholar-Cast Sage: In the daily life of this individual he may appear unkempt, distracted, refined, studious, directed, serious, and maybe even a bit out of synch socially, but this fragment would “shine” as soon as he was able to publicly share what he has gained as experiences in a way that was entertaining to at least a small group. A Sage-Cast Scholar, on the other hand, may be dramatic, socially obnoxious, emotional, depressed, extreme, performing, and chaotic in his daily life, but this fragment would “shine” when he is able to wholly comprehend something that can be finalized as a bit of profound personal knowledge. We do not know of a more appropriate word than “shine”. When you are in Essence, you feel complete, “on”, and you usually feel cohesion between your mundane self and your higher self. When we say “shine”, we do not intend to mean that everyone will see this, but rather that the Personality and Essence open to each other and a sense of lightness and wholeness pervade. We explain all of this to you in the context of an Essence having a different Role than Casting, but of course, there ARE Sage-Cast Sages and Scholar-Cast Scholars, but those fragments usually have little confusion as to their Role. Having explained those basic differences between Casting and Role in Essence, you can then figure out your Role or Casting by first determining if you feel you are more exalted or more ordinal in either of those contexts. In other words, in your DAILY LIFE, are you more one-on-one, but when you “shine”, are you surrounded by people? One-on-One might indicate a more Ordinal position, while being inclined toward groups can be an indication of an Exalted position. Once you have determined how you may behave in either context, you can then determine if you feel you are more compelled to have an inspiring, expressive, or active effect on your environment. This will then give you an indication as to the final role description you might be in your Casting or your Essence. For example, you may notice you are naturally more one-on-one in your daily life, thus indicating that you may be Ordinal-Cast, but when you “shine”, you notice you love to be in a group of people in some way, indicating you may be an Exalted Essence Role. Then you would determine if you are more inclined to be expressive, inspiring, or active in your daily life. If you find you are more concerned with inspiring, you could then safely start trying out the idea that you may be SERVER-CAST. When you “shine”, you may find you are more inclined to be expressive, entertaining, and teaching-oriented, which may indicate a SAGE ESSENCE. This would then be a Server-Cast Sage. We realize this can still be very confusing and difficult to determine, but it is a start. Because the Scholar Role is neutral, it can be the most difficult to determine and we would not be able to convey in this format the depth of questioning that would need to be explored for true validation of the Essence or Casting. One of the most important things you can do while studying our teaching and seeking to validate your Role, Casting, Overleaves, Entity, and Essence Twins, etc. is be open to an evolution of your understanding. You may discover that what you believed was inaccurate channeling is actually profoundly accurate to who you realize you are becoming (as you come into your own identity). Or you may discover that your self-determined Overleaves were highly inaccurate in your initial understanding and you now see that you are someone completely different after all. Never feel as if you must conclude who you are. Our system is designed to help you understand who you are, not complicate your self-perception. If you are thoroughly confused, pick a Role, pick your Overleaves, and begin “living with them”. You will begin to see what does and does not hold validity. [BingeBuddie] But would you have to be past the 4th internal monad to judge completely accurately as to what role you are? (not to ask ANOTHER lengthy question) MEntity: It does help to have completed the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole for true self-awareness in terms of Essence, Casting, and True Personality. But then, that is the very crux of having a completion of the 4th Internal Monad in the Positive Pole, so it is not a matter of waiting for that rite to pass before seeking valid self-awareness. We are working with Troy in creating two new ways of determining your own basic profiles: a self-test, and a step-by-step process of elimination method. We believe this will help many of our students. We never sought to have any student dependent on our channels, so this is an important evolution to our sharing of the teachings. We believe we have given you at least some “food for thought” until then.
  5. [Excerpt from Energy Report: July 2010] MEntity: Spiritualism could be described as the philosophy of the immaterial, intangible, and non-physical as potential forces to consider. This philosophy can range from the more obvious spirituality that is often contained in religion, and personal values that include the concept of a soul with realms beyond the physical, to the intangibilities, hypotheses, and theories of science, along with thought, emotion, and anticipated long-term consequences. The Spiritualist philosophy does not always manifest as stereotypical religious, pagan, new age, or other metaphysical spirituality, but can manifest as a consideration of possibilities, long-term consequences, and the factor of thought and emotion as it plays in the world of action and result. ... The Spiritualist Attitude has the greatest capacity for True Intelligence as it has the natural inclination for grasping the long-term consequences of thought, feeling, and action. It may be thought that those who are professional scientists and researchers are those who would not have Spiritualist as an Attitude, but something more along the lines of Skeptic or Realist, but that is not the case. Truly scientific thought comes from the imagination, visions, and the by-passing of logic that is necessary for breakthroughs. All Attitudes have the capacity for True Intelligence, but Spiritualist defaults to embracing the emotional, intuitive, perceptive forms of navigation, which are important elements of True Intelligence that other Attitudes can tend to reject, resist, or limit to specific contexts. The Spiritualist does not restrict intelligence to logic, and embraces the perceptive and intuitive, and this can be its strength or its weakness. The Positive Pole of Spiritualist is Verification, which allows for possibility, anticipation, and potential, but elaborates upon those qualities and validates them through the combined use of logic, intuition, and feeling. Validation for the Spiritualist is done through a loop of awareness that seeks to match possibility, pattern, and probability against actuality. The Negative Pole is Belief, which throws out all logic, intuition, and feeling and simply decides what is valid, or accepts what has been deemed as valid by others.

    Validating One’s Quadrate

    [Excerpt from TT: 2002-02-28] [kathryn41] (If this is too personal, I will withdraw the question) Four of us in this community are questioning whether we are a working quadrate. We wish to know how best to determine if this is so, how to validate our relationships with each other, and, if we are a quadrate, how to gain a more a conscious awareness of our project. [M_Entity] We encourage you to assume you are a Quadrate. Following the draw to work or socialize in a certain group is where your answer lies. Within that exploration, your Tasks will become evident. The validation can be done internally and externally. Internal validation is simply that you have determined it is true; there is no need to “test” that knowing. External validation would be if the other fragments in the group agree with your perception and knowing. [SusanSF] Could that include true study, besides true work then? [M_Entity] True Validation includes BOTH internal and external. The way to bring to light the combined goal of the Quadrate is simply to determine if you share a common interest and project at all. Whoever appears to have been the initiation behind the group would share what she believes are valid aspirations for that group. Knowledge will, by default, step in to refine those ideas and aspirations. In response to Susan’s sub-question: The “Trues” that support the Life Task/True Work would inherently be included, though not necessarily as obviously.
  7. [Excerpt from TT: 2011-06-12] [Brian_W] In a previous time it was mentioned that “Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions.” Could you please comment on how we may better use and understand our own imaginations and dreams, differentiate them from delusion, and use them to create new options for choices in this world / parallel? [MEntity] The key to the refinement and use of Imagination as a valid resource for creating new options and choices is through the process of Validation. Imagination will include a spectrum from the greatest potential to the greatest delusion. Validation is the process of measuring a new feeling, thought, or action against an established feeling, thought, or action. Internal Validation is vital for helping one to build his or her Personal Philosophies (truths), Relationships (loves), and Health (energy). External Validation is vital for helping one to share his or her Personal Truths, Relationships, and Health/Energy. True Validation is when both the Inner and Outer Validations coincide. Because Imagination is unlimited, the use of it can be a wonderful and dangerous process. We will say that as long as your Imagination must be kept to yourself in order to be “true,” then it is probably leaning toward Delusion, and away from Potential. We will say that as long as the majority of feedback from your outer world is contradictory to your Imagination, then it is, at least, still potential, which includes potentially delusional. One can see why this can be “tricky,” as one fragment full of potential may have surrounded oneself with fragments who challenge the Imagination, in general, and this can lead to questioning or rejecting one’s Imagination, while another fragment might be completely delusional and supported by many. However, we can say that the more one finds his or her footing in validating the Imagination, both internally and externally, the more one moves away from delusion. We will say that a safe equation might be that one who has not validated the potential of the Imagination within, will either find oneself surrounded by rejection of the potential, or support for the delusional.
  8. March 9, 2008 Troy Tolley, Channel MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor [Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here. [Question] There are some chemicals that seem central to our culture at this time. Testosterone is one, Caffeine another. A new one I just learned about is Oxytocin. Could you comment on these substances? Maybe there are other ones just as important, or more so. That is my question. [Michael Entity] The three chemicals you have listed are natural to your world and culture, even as there may be some synthetic versions of each, or innovative media for each. For the most part, every culture within a time frame has as part of its emphasis an attention toward some stimulants. In terms of the list you’ve offered up, each has its different effect. We will comment on each listed above as they are used outside of a natural supply, when actively sought as a supplement or for effect. Testosterone is sought in your culture now as a means to bring about a balance (or imbalance) to the ratio between “male” and “female” energies. Your world now has more higher-male energy female bodies and more higher-female energy male bodies than it has seen in a long time. Testosterone is called upon to soothe that panic during this natural shift. Rather than implementing a deeper understanding of the female energies as they show up through a male body, it is sought to stimulate out of the body as much of the male energy as possible. This use is “fine,” but the implementation of Testosterone as a substitute for understanding can only last for so long. Eventually the panic fades and a more natural expression is allowed. Caffeine is called upon as a stimulant as it relates to an individual’s Frequency. Many are drawn to Caffeine as it keeps the individual Frequency at the higher end of the range one has within his capabilities. A Higher Frequency fits into Young Soul paradigm of “fast, fast, fast!” in terms of productivity, processing, and use of energy. As the Mature Soul consciousness takes more rooting, less Caffeine will be consumed as each individual finds his own pace and uses that to his advantage, rather than forcing oneself to the exhausting higher end of your Frequency. We remind you that we are responding to your question within the context of its use within the culture, but there are various individual reasons, as well. Oxytocin is a stimulant that triggers access to the Higher Centers, particularly the Higher Moving Center. When naturally occurring, it is activated in relation to a fragment’s conscious ability to process that access, but in its synthetic uses, the access is still made, but conscious processes are out of sync. The use of this chemical is relative to the panic over Soul Age Transition within your culture from Young To Mature. We do not see this as being used as a “central to your culture,” but it is a possibility that it gain more momentum if a shift in consciousness is not rooted more tangibly within the next 10 years. The use of this chemical is to help induce access to the transition process in a tangible way, because many assume that evidence must be externally-shown that one is present and accessible. Many fragments are present in your world who appear to be withdrawn and out of sync with an expressive, social culture, but these fragments are not lacking. They are merely interacting in a different way. Imprinting and social pressures can cause one to either push a withdrawn fragment into a chemically-induced accessibility, or push the self into that state. [Question] I don´t see the difference there… The self? [Michael Entity] In general, people may feel pressured to push a withdrawn fragment into this state, or one might feel that pressure on oneself and choose it for oneself. We would suggest that there are many who are incarnated at this time who are in a lifetime that could be akin to an “in-breath” over the scheme of things. As with all preoccupations with a stimulant, the evolving understanding of the motivation behind its use brings far more effect than the actual use of the chemical. In addition to the list above, we would add Nicotine, which is a stimulant that affects the Mode. This chemical has been in place over a long, Young Soul paradigm because of the nature of that soul age to leave intimacy out of the picture as one goes for what one wants from life. Smoke in the lungs can act as a substitute for intimacy as this soothes the Emotional Center, and Nicotine stimulates superficial socializing as a means to keep the Mode in effect. The Mode is the part of ones personality that describes how one RELATES. Though we focused more directly on some of the specifics of each of these chemicals, it could be said that ALL chemicals within a culture that tend to be used as a stimulate are relative to the Mode. In nearly all cases of use in stimulants, each has to do with a forced form of relating. [Question] How to validate one’s entity, if one has never met a person who has been channelled as a member of that entity? [Michael Entity] Channeled information is not required for one to validate contact with an entity member, but it can help one in the process. In the case you describe, we would suggest exploring the themes and qualities and “trademarks” of your Entity and then apply that filter to your life to see who might resonate to those factors. That would be a first step. A next step might be then to “invite” entity members into your life who are more obvious and accessible. This could be done using the dream state, consciously inviting your incarnated members into your life as you fall asleep. Contact may be made in this dream state as a means to make plans for contact in physical life. Channeling can then be used beyond this for details and rounding out validation. You have met several from your Entity within your lifetime, from a childhood “friend” who used to kick your shins or feet on a playground, to a cashier at a frequented market who “went out of her way” to be helpful, to a fellow passenger on a public transportation route of some length, to a man who was a “stranger” who appears to have photographed you at your request, etc. Though we will not list all of them here, we can offer those suggestions for references in your memory as a means to start your validation process. If none of these sound familiar, it may be because these instances are too vague or that we are accessing the records incorrectly altogether. We suggest you explore them, but you will know more precisely if they are accurate or not. In addition to these, there are many public figures from your Entity, as well as many Michael Students with whom you have contact on a regular basis. [Question] Currently I have an issue with a woman in my home owner’s association, Mrs. W. I’m the president of our HOA, and the minute she told us, via email, that she sent me a certified letter making demands, my reaction to it was to get very angry about it. I couldn’t contain my anger towards her when she arrived at our meeting and I yelled at her. This surprised me… that I got so angry because I rarely get angry with people. I have been looking at this issue of what caused me to get so angry with her and what am I missing about her to allow me to stop feeling my hackles raise when I see or even think about her. I know the anger I’m feeling is not really about her. Please can you shed some light on this… along with telling me how I might handle her with more positive results? [Michael Entity] On a self-karmic level, this relates to several issues: issues of Control as it extends from Stubbornness (you prefer discretion over obnoxious call-outs); issues of inadequacy as described by your Self-deprecation (it hurts to be told you fall short of expectations). In the case you describe, this triggered every defense you could muster to protect yourself from losing control and feeling inadequate. Your anger was a form of your trying to re-implement some control and to compensate for the sense of inadequacy. It is Good Work that you recognize that this incident is unrelated to the woman, herself, even as she provoked these reactions in you. This is consciousness, Essence. [Comment] Wow… that makes total sense to me. [Michael Entity] You claim that you “rarely get angry with people,” but this is untrue. Or more specifically, this is an inaccurate statement. It is simply that your anger more often is turned inward rather than outward. You are exploring the other side of anger in this incident as a means to bring some wholeness further into your life. That is the main self-karmic issue: your RIGHT to be angry. Your RIGHT to feel hurt. And ultimately, your RIGHT to express. Vocalizing your Anger frees your Intellectual Center or your Throat Chakra to “unclog” years of suppression. [Question] This is healthier for my body to express it outwardly? [Michael Entity] It came out more strongly as a result of past suppression. We would not say that it is healthier for your body to express it outwardly as much as we would say that it is healthier for ALL of your bodies to OWN your anger and to express it appropriately. This would include the internal expressions as much as the external. In other words, you have created a dichotomy within you that has left you with arguments against and for your anger over time. Whether this anger was kept inside, directed toward the self, or externalized. Your next steps are to consciously grasp that your anger is a means of uncovering areas of powerlessness within the life and then to bring consciousness to that area, re-empowering that area. In your case, the powerlessness could be said to be rooted in your Goal of Acceptance. As you explore this Goal, much of what is acceptable about yourself or others seems to be out of your hands in many ways. Over time you have found this to simply be untrue. So it is that you are now more likely to express your anger because you are not threatened by the loss of acceptance, of yourself, or from others. Now that you have seen the disproportionate effects of anger as it is expressed after being suppressed, you may find that you are more appropriate as you experience it in the future. Though this was a rather personal question, we do see our response as being applicable to many. If you wish to stretch yourself a bit more, it would be an interesting “short cut” toward balance if this incident were addressed with the woman in question, not offering apologies, but in offering appreciation and acknowledgment for the benefit gained from your exploring your part of the equation. You may not be able to control how people ask for what they want, but you can learn to see these calls for action to simply be variations of how one has learned to get things done, not as personal attacks. We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Good night.
  9. Michael Speaks -- June 12, 2011 Open Floor Questions and Answers Channel: Troy Tolley [MEntity] We will respond now to the question from Nicholas. [NicholasBabylove] what is the "easiest" way we older souls can create/allow more money into our lives? Is the lack of money even though we have tons of intelligence/talents/skills just something we choose to deal with...and we tend to leave it at that? I know it's different for each of us, but I'd like some kind of suggestion that might touch on all oldies generally... or, the oldie students... [MEntity] The concept of having to funnel one's talents and skills into something that can be monetarily valuable is not complicated or difficult for the older soul to implement, but when those talents and skills must conform to a younger paradigm, it can be complicated and difficult. The older soul would benefit from fully embracing whatever older soul talents and skills he or she may have, and then complementing that with younger soul packaging. The gift inside is what matters, if you will, but packaging is important in the current paradigm. Some of the most useless and detrimental products and services are eagerly purchased in the current paradigm, due to packaging. So our first suggestion is to give great priority to "packaging," as the talents and skills are natural, and while they require their own kind of nurturing, it is the packaging that is often neglected. This neglect of packaging is because the older the soul grows, the more integrity the Personalities tend to have. And for the older soul, the skew between "Presentation" and "Content" can seem great, when it comes to catering to a younger paradigm. But it is key. To sanctimoniously neglect your younger soul skills for packaging and presentation would be similar to a teacher in grade school refusing to "talk down" to her students. It does not have to mean a degradation of content, nor a skew away from integrity, but a matter of translation. We do not speak to you in a way that we speak to each other, for instance. We must package our teaching in a way that allows you to grow with what we share. And so it is for the older soul to realize: that what you have to give, to share, to use for profit or nourishment, must be translated through a medium that can allow for reception. After Packaging would be Paralleling, if you will. By this we mean that you will find your niche receivers that have no need for a translation of what you have to give, and this can be done alongside the packaging, so that both facets of you are fulfilled. One does not have to replace the other. The third consideration is Practicality. You must feed and clothe yourself along the way toward gaining your footing with what you truly prefer to use as your means of income. Working the jobs that you do not like would do well to be seen as simply a part of the dynamic ways that you provide love for yourself and your life. Again, one does not have to replace the other. It is okay to be mundane. The lack of money in the older souls' lives is not a matter of any lessons needing to be learned, but a result of choices that prefer minimalism over the demands of complexity. Most older souls have learned how to work the system, so to speak, of the Physical Plane in a way that never leaves them in true danger, but allows them to "get by" as they tend to more important experiential matters. Many older souls would "trade the world" for the intimacy, friendship, love, honesty, kindness, peace, etc that life offers. Older souls can be wealthy, and often quite easily, but those factors mentioned above would probably need to be considered more seriously, and then the final concern: letting people do with your talents and skills what they will. For instance, the packaging of some old soul concepts, such as "The Secret," gained great notoriety and profit, but we could say that most gained nothing from the information. Not because the information was invalid, though it was severely compromised, but because people will do with what you offer what they will. We must have the same concept intact for us to share with you: we would say that only 25% of our active students actually "hear" us in a way that is truly meaningful, and even fewer apply the teachings in a way that proves meaningful results. But this cannot be a reason for us not to share. True sharing, whether with a price or for "free," is never without profit. So our sharing with you our teaching is as much for US, as it is for you; this means whatever you do with what we share, we still gain. And so it is with your talents and skills: you would want to share those with the intent of True Sharing, in that you own the vital element that is the pleasure you gain from it. True Sharing is mutually beneficial. However, the only one in the equation of sharing that you have control over is you, and so to set the standard for sharing to be that you actually enjoy it, then the sharing is True. [Bobby2] From your perspective, what exactly was the "Ark of the Covenant" as mentioned in our Old Testament? Was it some piece of advanced technology? If so, what were its capabilities? Does it still exist? [MEntity] We think that this is a reference to an energy source that was not fully understood by most, and because of its rather dangerous effects upon those in proximity, it was guarded quite well. We would not call it "advanced" technology, though from the current understanding of Earth history, it would seem so. [Bobby2] Was it nuclear? [MEntity] We do not think it still exists, as it was either an energy source that collapsed and dissipated over time, or was returned to the non-terrestrials who originally offered it. Its capabilities were equivalent to nuclear energy, but without the concern that nuclear energy presents in terms of toxic wastes and heats. However, a kind of radiation was a concern to those within proximity. [Oscar] Hey Mikeys =) I would like to know if the Universe is finite or infinite. And if it's finite, what is beyond it(s borders)? And beyond the borders of that, etc. [MEntity] We are still exploring this question, ourselves, but what we know is: from "within" a universe, it is infinite in terms of experiences and perceptions, much the way one might experience the inside of a mirrored sphere; that universes must be finite beyond experiences and perceptions that we can comprehend, because we know there are completely separate universes "stacked" around our own; that while there is a definitive, Physical, or densest, component to the universe, the degree to which it grows finer is still unknown to us; that, so far, we can compare the universe to the same spectrum that makes up any single consciousness: while there are physical counterparts, the emotional and intellectual dynamics that are in place to generate those physical counterparts are very difficult to quantify, and therefore, so are the borders of a universe, as we also do not know how to show the edges of a thought or an emotion. To be more direct: we think the universe is finite, but exists within an infinity. Or put another way: what we know of as "the universe," even in our delineation of all of its layers and planes, is but a counterpart of an even greater whole that we have yet to comprehend. [Martha] At Claymont, JP said something about the first 100 cadres or entities, and the last 100, would stay here for the duration of our species’ incarnations. Not every single fragment or entity within each 100, but that the first and last 100 had committed to staying around. Do you agree? And if so can you elaborate on it? [MEntity] We would agree. Though this does not mean a limitation to the incarnational process of the Physical Plane, but includes all lower planes. Those of us from "the beginning" and "the end" of the count for Sentience to this Design will be supporting, teaching, and even incarnating "somewhere" within the Physical, Astral, or Causal Planes. We will be "here" even as the last of Human Sentience completes its last life. [Brian_W] In a previous time it was mentioned that "Imagination is the highest frequency owned by a physical fragment and its use is entirely misunderstood by many, at least in terms of its use for “extra-sensory” perceptions." Could you please comment on how we may better use and understand our own imaginations and dreams, differentiate them from delusion, and use them to create new options for choices in this world / parallel? [MEntity] The key to the refinement and use of Imagination as a valid resource for creating new options and choices is through the process of Validation. Imagination will include a spectrum from the greatest potential to the greatest delusion. Validation is the process of measuring a new feeling, thought, or action against an established feeling, thought, or action. Internal Validation is vital for helping one to build his or her Personal Philosophies (truths), Relationships (loves), and Health (energy). External Validation is vital for helping one to share his or her Personal Truths, Relationships, and Health/Energy. True Validation is when both the Inner and Outer Validations coincide. Because Imagination is unlimited, the use of it can be a wonderful and dangerous process. We will say that as long as your Imagination must be kept to yourself in order to be "true," then it is probably leaning toward Delusion, and away from Potential. We will say that as long as the majority of feedback from your outer world is contradictory to your Imagination, then it is, at least, still potential, which includes potentially delusional. One can see why this can be "tricky," as one fragment full of potential may have surrounded itself with fragments who challenge the Imagination, in general, and this can lead to questioning or rejecting one's Imagination, while another fragment might be completely delusional and supported by many. However, we can say that the more one finds his or her footing in validating the Imagination, both internally and externally, the more one moves away from delusion. We will say that a safe equation might be that one who has not validated the potential of the Imagination within, will either find oneself surrounded by rejection of the potential, or support for the delusional. We must conclude our time through Troy here.
