Michael Speaks Live Psychic Hygiene October 8, 2011 [MEntity] Hello to each of you. We are here now. We can begin with discussion about the topic suggested: "Psychic Hygiene" For most fragments, the physical plane is met with some amount of awareness brought to the importance of Physical and, eventually, Spiritual Hygiene, or maintenance, if you will. Depending on the culture, sometimes one is emphasized over another, or both are emphasized, but these two "bodies" are often considered as priorities, either together or separately. Physical hygiene is fairly clearly understood as a necessity in modern culture and civilizations, and while the methods and motivations may differ across those, the effects are still beneficial. Spiritual Hygiene begins to be considered as a result of survival or prosperity. Rituals and practices come into play as a plea in times of struggle, or as a means to explore in times of prosperity. While the variations in Physical methods and motivations for hygiene tend to have the same effects and benefits, the rituals and practices for Spiritual Hygiene do not. Spiritual Rituals and practices tend to be geared toward the beliefs of the individual, religion, or culture of the time, and so do not act as a means of actual Hygiene, but more as a means of manipulation. Manipulation is not a "bad thing" in itself, but there are many who feel that their Spiritual practices and rituals are quite noble and beneficial, when actually they are often entirely geared toward the manipulation of favors, alleviation of fears, or the fulfillment of duties. The reason the Physical Hygiene can be rather consistent in its benefit, while Spiritual Hygiene can be rather inconsistent in effect is because one has immediate impact, and the other does not. Furthermore, the entire concept of "spirituality" is misunderstood as a body in and of itself, or a realm, or a dimension, etc, when it is not. Therefore, the practices and rituals put in place to directly benefit one's "Spirituality" is often lost as if thrown into a black hole of relevance. "Spirituality," or the Spiritual Body, is a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts, and those parts are the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies. The Spiritual Body does not exist without those inclusions. So if one dismisses the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies for the sake of aiming for some sort of "Spiritual" ascension, acceptance, acceleration, advancement, etc, one is completely missing the point, and has not come to understand the nature of Spirituality. Spirituality is a concept much like that of Nature. Nature is something that cannot exist without all of the forms that make up what is understood as "Nature." To separate out the concept of Nature from its very nature would be absurd. And so it is that one's Spiritual practices and rituals are useless if they do not include or understand the necessity of inclusion of the hygiene for the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Bodies. Naturally, then, the aim for Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual Hygiene automatically benefits "Spirit," or "Spirituality." This is what we mean by "Psychic" Hygiene: the inclusion of the less-tangible aspects that make up your more intimate bodies; those of the Physical, Emotional, and Intellectual. Our use of "psychic" may differ a bit from the general definition of the word, but we mean it in the sense of the inclusion of your psyche, or your consciousness, in relation to these Bodies. For instance: most of you know how to bathe your own bodies. This is a task that most of you do weekly, if not daily, in some form, with some of you doing so more thoroughly than others, but doing so, nonetheless. However, often or well you clean your body, we can say with some amount of confidence that most of you do not do so with a kind, thoughtful, loving hand in the process. A routine hand, yes. A thorough hand, yes. A skilled hand, yes. A dutiful hand, yes. And this cleans your Physical Body, but it does nothing for the psychic levels of that Body. By "psychic levels," we mean that there is little consciousness present or involved. All of our suggestions today will be rather simple. They should be rather easy to implement into your daily lives. They are not intended to be a distraction, but a support to your days. Our first suggestion, then, for the Physical Body is to BATHE YOURSELVES AS IF YOU CARE. It is that simple. This is not necessary every time you bathe yourself, but once out of every 4 times you may bathe yourself, include your capacity to CARE in the process. Bring some loving to your body; some appreciation, gratitude, affection. Be there for you on more than a dutiful or routine level. Truly be present in that body you are taking time to clean. However close you may be to somebody else, you will never be as close to any other body than your own. Ever. Bringing that simple shift in awareness to your bathing process is more meaningful to "spirit" and to you than any spiritual practice or ritual could ever be. The Emotional Body is the next-most tangible of all of you Bodies. This is not the case for every person, but for most. If you feel that your Intellectual Body is far more tangible than your Emotional Body, it is not a matter of fact, but a matter of emphasis that you think this is so. Technically, the Emotional Body is denser than the Intellectual Body, and then the Emotional springs from that. Because the Physical Body is so immediately tangible, and the "Spiritual" is of such an aspiration to so many, the Emotional and Intellectual Bodies are the most neglected and abused bodies on the planet. The hygiene of your Emotional Bodies can most often be helped through the use of SOUND. In particular, Tones, or music. Emotional hygiene could do well to take place at least once a month, but as often as you would like. There is a difference between escaping into music or sound, and harnessing it for hygiene. Much like there is a difference between going swimming, and taking a bath or shower. Exploring the tones associated with Chakras, either as vocal expressions or instrumental expressions, is helpful in putting into practice Emotional Hygiene. There is validity to the practice of vocalizing the "all-inclusive sound" of Om. When we say that the Emotional Body can benefit from SOUND, we mean all forms and media of sound, including speaking kind and comforting words to yourself, affirmations, singing spontaneously. The Emotional Body is where the experience of Time is processed, and music/sound is a processing of Time that helps to clean, heal, support, and care for the Emotional Body. For those who are Emotionally-Centered, it may be a regular event to submerge oneself into music or sound, because when one is using that Center as a means for navigating the entire life, it requires far more maintenance and healing, which is why Emotionally-Centered Personalities do tend to develop a far more intimate relationship to music than other Centerings. This is not to say that Moving or Intellectual Centering does not develop relationships to music and sound, but that it is a different relationship, and not one that is born of such necessity as those who are Emotionally Centered. We can explore those relationships in another session. So for the Emotional Bodies, a regular form of hygiene to bring to your every month, or more, is to listen to Chakra-based Toning, speaking kindly to yourself, singing to yourself, vocalizing tones that feel good, etc. And all with an awareness present. For the Intellectual Body, hygiene could do well to be in place as often as one bathes, if not more. The Hygiene of your Intellectual Body can most often be helped through the use of VISUALIZATIONS. There are two important levels of hygiene to consider in this case: One is that every fragment would do well to gift himself with a break from thinking, every day. This is not the same thing as being stupid. Every day, or at least for a few moments as one bathes or showers, the practice of visualizing "nothing" can truly bring some relief to the Intellect. By "nothing," we mean that the focus is on as much space as possible, an openness, such as floating, or flying, being in the sky, among clouds, etc. [Question] Doesn't that require intellectual processes to generate the visualization though? [MEntity] Of course it does. You cannot bathe your Physical Body without using your hands, either. The point is not to escape these Bodies, but to give them gifts, benefits, pleasure, freedom, support. The more one uses these bodies to benefit themselves, instead of being entirely weighted by the processes of living a life, the more those processes of living the life are met with brilliant energy, clarity, enthusiasm, and joy. In other words, your Bodies are not slaves to the lifetime. They are curious, sensitive, fragile, wondrous dimensions of you that are here to explore, not just to endure. The other level of hygiene for this body would come in the form of decording. This is something that can be practiced monthly, or even yearly. This is the practice of using your imagination and visualization to "see" your own back where energetic cords have attached themselves between you and those with whom you are not consciously or relevantly attached. Cording is the process of linking one's Chakras to another for the sake of bonding or binding. When bonding happens, it is usually a mutual experience and these cords are connected to the front of your body, chakras. When binding happens, it is not usually mutual, though allowed, and these cords are connected to the back of the body. All of these terms are not so literal, but they are accurate enough to the reality of those connections that we can use them here. Decording, then, is the use of the imagination to pull or wipe those cords off of your back. Of course, this is all symbolic, but it works when the visualization is applied. We will have to use another chat to elaborate upon the dynamics of Cording, but to begin this practice can often bring sudden freeing of energy and well-being, not only to the Intellect, but to the denser bodies, as well. It may also bring a surprise visit or contact from those who are binded to you in the back, because when those drop, the person who originated the bind senses this drop between you and may suddenly want to contact you, if he or she can. Another daily practice for Intellectual Hygiene would be to put at least one beautiful thing in your most inhabited space so that you can see it, and allow it to remind you to slow the mind, to take in the view, to allow room for your thoughts to come and go, rather than build up. As the Emotional Body processes Time, the Intellectual Body processes Space. As Music/sound is a means of processing Time, so is Visualization a means of processing Space. We must conclude here for today, but can continue this discussion in future exchanges, or in the forum thread where this transcript may be posted. We think that what we have shared today may be of help for bringing some personal sense of management over one's energy and health of his or her bodies, and to help bring a bit more "spirit" to one's Spiritual Body. Good evening to each of you. Goodbye.
September 21, 2000 Troy Tolley, Channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] We are here. One moment. We understand you will be in “open floor” format again tonight. We will move immediately into Questions then. [Clavis] Could Michael recommend any power or energy spot in Germany to visit during my trip there? It could include Austria, too. [Michael_Entity] We have no basis with which to “recommend,” as far as “energy spots” or “power spots” in what is known as Germany. We can either highlight a few of the areas, or comment on areas where you may already be planning to visit. Most will find their “spots” quite easily on their own. [Clavis] Michael mentioned “pressure points” of Earth before, using Egypt as one example. Is there any such spots in Germany or Austria? [Michael_Entity] Each of our channels resonate with and define parameters differently for what they call “points” or “spots.” The variations are not contradictions, but rather, “layers.” Each Layer is based on a layer of Truth. Most “power spots” are based on Personal Truths. The system as a whole for defining the “maps” of energy that comprise the Earth's energies requires collaboration, but it is a definite system. If you'd like to have an example of what might be a “personal power spot,” something that might resonate with you and trigger personal transformation, then on that basis we suggest the Harz Mountains. [Dewliet] Lately, certain music has made me ache with inexplicable longing. I get the feeling music might be a “language” for a fragment's communication with Essence. Could Michael comment on what draws individuals to certain types of music? [Michael_Entity] This particular Universe is built from and based on Music and Math. Everything can be reduced to either. Geometrically, the Universe can be reduced to Circles and Triangles. The resolution or common denominator for each set is the Spiral. Music then is multidimensional in its effect. All nonphysical matter, from the Astral and beyond, is translated into shapes and tones. When these multidimensional means of translation and communication are used while Physical, there is a “transcendence” in many cases to a level of “pure” nonphysical, paranormal connection. Music is in particular the language of the Astral Plane and the Messianic Planes. While extant on the Physical Plane, while Essence resides Astrally, Music then is a direct path to your Source. It is also a means to link directly to other Essences. What draws a fragment to a certain type of music is usually linked to their Centering and Role. Listening to it is the only means for its impact. Creating it is a different context altogether. We will also add that two other factors in determining the draw to certain types of music is the predominance of your Overleaves as they are arranged on the Axis (more Action, or more Expression, etc.). And we add that “timing” and events in a life will create a draw for what is most “needed” appropriately. [Dewliet] So, are you implying then, that the music most deeply touching me is that which brings me closest to Essence? [Michael_Entity] Yes. But note that it may also be a path for direct contact with other Essences. This is a large topic and we may continue with the delineation of each Axis, or move to the next question. [Dewliet] Thank you, Michael! Please take the next question. [Anne49] I would like to know why during the live channeling session in NYC some of us blanked out. I have very little recollection of what took place, and do not remember being anywhere else. [Michael_Entity] Many of you are inconvenienced by the body as a sensory unit as a whole. Those of you we sense “blanked out” were in a moment wherein you felt “permission” to do so. There was a common element of great amounts of input for each of those who did “blank out.” While in our “presence” and while in the moment of your Cadre/Entity unions, having to have full-body attention was simply pointless and moot to you. After a great deal of input over the week previously, combined with the sense of permission and safety, combined with the hypnotic elements of the room, voices, and energy, it is not surprising. “Where” you were was literally “nowhere.” At least as we see it. This was the “point.” This allowed assimilation, but with that amount of assimilation in a condensed amount of space/time, the “pressure” most likely had an impact physically. We believe you mentioned to Troy the pressure of your “headache.” This happens to many who attend a channeling in person, or even online “live.” A great deal of exchange is occurring not only “horizontally,” but “vertically.” [MaryBV] This may be a bit too personal, but I would like Michael to comment on my perception of people's auras. For instance, during the channeling session in NYC I saw a “bubbling” of Troy's aura from the left side of his head. Was I seeing this correctly and did the aura coming from this side of the head have any particular meaning, and is seeing the aura of any ‘real’ importance generally? [Michael_Entity] The Aura is real. It is a significant and vital part of communication, even if not acknowledge consciously. There are several layers to an Aura, similar to the several layers of the Earth. What is generally called the “aura” is the Emotional Body, or Astral Body. When “viewing” the Aura of another fragment, it is generally not realized, even among the most serious students of the Bodies, that you will ALWAYS “view” another person's Aura THROUGH your own. This “colours” the “colours” seen. A rarer form of viewing the Aura is in seeing the Mental Body or Causal Body. There are discrepancies among different teachings as to the term, so we will refer to it as the Causal Body here. In your case, Mary, you were “seeing” Troy's Causal Body. You will still interpret the “images,” but they are more inclined to be resonant between the perceiver and the perceived as compared to viewing the Emotional Body/Astral Body. The “bubbling” you witnessed was the release of minor beliefs from Troy's Causal Body that were held as obstacles and stress up to the moment of our “arrival.” Once we moved through the energy that is Troy and the Sage, these were released. As to the significance of the left side of his head, this is simply where this fragment believes release is experienced from the more “dominant,” choice-making side. [Leela] I've been wondering recently if there is particular karma that Jews as a group have carried over the millennia. Is there any truth to this perception? [Michael_Entity] Races/religious groups can have Karma that is dealt with collectively over millennia, yes. We see those who choose the context of lifetimes as a Jew as participating more in terms of religious imprinting as a means to explore common themes. There is no particular Karma for Jews that we can see being valid as a whole, but the draw to be born as part of this group in any form is highly appealing to Mature Souls seeking intense lessons around family and imprinting. Races and religions create CONTEXTS more than they do Karma. For instance, the race known as Black or African/American is now a powerful draw for newly Young Souls. [Momhawk] Hello Michael: What's up with this ‘peeper’ guy? Are my ‘impressions’ so far, accurate? Does it look like he will ‘return’ again HERE, or not at this time? Any further recommendations as to how to best handle this situation? Is it safe to remain here in my home, or would it just be better to leave for a while over the upcoming weekend. I'm REALLY tired from dealing with all of this at this point. [Michael_Entity] This is your Karma. You will be compelled to complete it. Whether you leave or not, there is a momentum that will allow a balance. Your “impressions” are accurate enough to console you, but they are of little use. We do not speak ominously, simply as we see the situation. Your “best” method of handling this situation is to trust your impulses. They are cues to your Karmic path. [KellyGirl] I would like to know about my next Mate agreement that will happen, particularly when, where, who, and the agreement itself. [Michael_Entity] You have two Mate Agreements: A Sage and a Server, both male. We cannot guarantee that these “will happen” as they are Agreements, and are not bound by anything. We do see they are still intact. The Server's agreement was for August. The delay is not an impact. The Sage is in Agreement to meet you in November. The Server is a Healer in your Support Circle and will most likely, if brought in, be a pivotal but temporary contact. His impact will inspire you, but attachment is more than likely not the intent. The Sage is more “serious” and probable as a long-term exploration. You enjoy Sages. This fragment is involved with children and Law. The ‘where’ of the agreement with the Sage is not determined, though we do see an inclination toward meeting in a holiday gathering. [echoprime] Do our pets (primarily dogs and cats) share a telepathic connection with us? (I'm thinking specifically of the morning I thought I “heard” my black cat, Solo, say my name.) [Michael_Entity] Yes, but more accurately, they are telepathic EXTENSIONS of you. Though domestic animals do have distinct individualities, their “personalities” are the extensions of one or more Overleaves of the most bonded caretaker. If you “heard” your name from your cat, it is not uncommon for the animal to use means that have become identified as a means to grab the attention of the caretaker. We remind you, as well, if you are interested in any form of off-planet communication with alien sentience, Cats are the most viable accessible vehicle for that communication. [Clavis] Could Michael tell me if I have chosen different careers in any parallel selves, and if I can tap into my talents in my other selves? [Michael_Entity] Yes, of course you have chosen various careers in parallel universes. That is why they are not “this” parallel. It is possible to “tap” the talents of other Parallel personalities. This can be done through simple visualization and imagination. Using your imagination, “peek” in on what you could imagine as having been alternative routes “you” followed. These are almost always accurate and real. If you can imagine it, it has most likely found a place in some parallel. Once you have “locked on” to a parallel, “observe” yourself there. Look at what “you” are doing in your general, everyday life. If that is a parallel with talents you'd like to implement “here,” or if it has a prosperity level that you'd like to impress “here,” then simply notice what you are wearing, what you do as you come home, notice how you are wearing your hair, how you eat, anything that is a common, obvious behaviour that is “different” from “you here.” For example, if in that parallel you always come home and place your keys in a specific place, note that. Note anything that can be easily duplicated “here,” but is different enough to symbolically link you to that parallel. Then simply begin implementing that small change. The impact can become quite phenomenal and transformative. A bleedthrough will begin, impulses and behavior may begin to change, etc. It can be quite disconcerting, but if you are consciously choosing this experiment, it can be maneuvered through with little stress. [Clavis] Would Michael care to name a few of the different careers? [Michael_Entity] We are not in a forum that supports an assessment of your parallels tonight, JJ, but your own imagination can be used as effectively. [ksh] When is my next mate agreement? [Michael_Entity] You have Agreements with a Scholar in April of 2001. This is a long-term Mate Agreement with a movement in process in 5 year cycles. This fragment is male, travels to the US frequently and intends to live there eventually. It appears the agreement is to be fulfilled through meeting in a work environment or job-related pursuit. The meeting will most likely occur previous to the month of the Agreement's implementation. You can validate when you meet this Scholar when you are informed that his brother lives in the US and the fragment's mother is deceased. These are two, more obvious validating factors. Good Night.
