  1. Note from Janet: This was pulled from a ning forum as re-posted by Geraldine in 2009. Since the original material was obtained within days of the event, I have added it to the collection of 2001 transcripts. Since we are coming up on the 9/11 Anniversary, and I came across this "Reissue" of the World Trade Center Report -- I'm including it verbatim as posted on the group list. Its point of reference is Sept 11, 2004 with a reissue of the report written and posted on Sept 21, 2001. With the 3rd year anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks coming up, and the Republican Convention looming, and with a rise in recent requests to dig out this original Q&A with Michael, I have decided to send out this report for discussion. Reading it again after all of this time is strange and comforting, and now I have plenty more questions I feel I can ask. Please offer discussion and feedback at your convenience! I am sending this in an email and as a Word Document. Part of the editing I did was add Footer Notes to help define or explain some of the more complicated terminology. Make sure you ask me if you need any clarification of this article. Have a great day! Love, Troy -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- MICHAEL ON 9/11 This channeling took place ten days after the WTC attack. No other channeling had been publicly offered by that time and I felt it was very important to gain a metaphysical perspective of the event as soon as possible (for my own sake, if for no other reason). Some grammatical editing has occurred since the original sharing. ORIGINAL LETTER: Hello all, This channeling is by no means complete or even that useful, but here is what I got so far. I felt the clarity of connection to Michael opening and took advantage of that, even though I have been deeply affected by physically seeing the event unfold, including seeing one of the towers collapse before my eyes. This channeling may conflict with other channel’s work, but I only ask that you use each piece offered by channels as parts of the same event as described in the dark. Maybe a whole picture could come from that. I am also embarrassed to say that I am in no way an historian and I do not feel comfortable going too far into historical information. I have no clue if "wenis" (what the hell kind of name is that??) or teti are real and part of that time frame (I can't do any internet research from here to validate the channeling), so I am putting this out there with a gamble. PLEASE be gentle, but I would also love any insights to be shared, or questions to be asked, if more information is wanted. Since I posed the question to Michael broadly (“Michael, please comment on this event”), they responded from multiple angles. I am sure some of you can come up with far better, more direct questions. I will do my best to be here and share I what I get. Love, Troy Ps. You are welcome to share this piece with other lists and include credits, of course. I want the right person to be scoffed at! Ha ha... 092101 Michael on the terrorist attack of 091101 MICHAEL: We doubt we will bring much solace to the reality of events that took place on September 11, 2001 in the United States, but we can provide what we are able to gather as the dynamics behind the event, what those dynamics might mean literally and symbolically, and where events may go from there. We have experienced our own tragedies and losses while we were extant and fragmented, feeling deep grief, loss, confusion, and pain over events that were relative to our own progress on Earth. We bring this up to remind you that we have not forgotten what it means to be in a body and a part of humanity. The fact that we are in a position to view events from a Causal perspective does not diminish the process that is part of being Physical. Life can be painful. We remember. We will begin with the dynamics behind this event: This event is one of tangled, yet elegantly-played out Karma between Cadres, Fragments, and Countries. There are symbolic properties to this event, but first we will address the various players as they are known at this time. We will describe them in terms of our system. The fragments involved in the collapse of the World Trade Center were nearly-entirely from the same Cadre. There were other fragments involved from outside of that single Cadre, but most who perished were from entities within Cadre 9, Energy Ring 7[*] . Cadre #9’s are always in the DISCIPLINE Position[†] within its own Energy Ring. Incidentally, nearly all fragments from Energy Ring 7 are involved in some way with the major political positions of the world of the current time. The Discipline Position is defined as the influence that heightens the awareness of the decision making process. People who are in the Discipline Position in your life do not “ride you”, so to speak, nor to they discipline you in the traditional sense of the word, forcing the fulfillment of plans. They simply help create or generate scenarios that bring awareness to the impact of decisions and choices. DISCIPLINE helps see the end results of decision making, often highlighting the far-reaching impact. Through any means available, the Discipline Position will focus on helping move others through procrastinations and distractions toward a more purposeful goal. DISCIPLINE always shows you the road of original intent and keeps you "awake". While this Cadre 9 is the Discipline Position within its own personal Energy Ring, it has also taken upon itself that same position symbolically for the world. Nearly all Cadre #9’s will feel a deep motivation to play their parts in their own Energy Rings as a Discipline theme and this motivation will be amplified by this event. Many fragments who are organizing actions for fund-raising, protests, and even further attacks in the shadow of this tragedy are from Cadre 9 of other Energy Rings. The Configurations[‡] on each jet liner were Septets[§], consisting of Cadence Mates[**] of various forms. For example, two groups of 5 have been brought to light and these are all Warrior Fragments within the same Cadences within their own Entities. These two groups of 5 are missing the other members of their Configuration/Cadence (2 fragments missing from each group). Another two groups of 4 were of varying Roles from within a single Cadre and from different Entities. The latter Cadence/Configuration consists of one Cadence/Configuration being the 33rd Fragment from each Entity within that Cadre; the other Cadence/Configuration consists of the 107th fragments of each Entity from within that Cadre. Each of these groups of 4 is missing 3 members each from the Cadence/Configuration. The missing fragments from each Septet appear to be discarnate. It is important to note that it just happens to be that the Septet Configurations are made up of actual Cadences. This is not always the case. A Septet can be made up of any fragments from anywhere, while a Cadence doesn’t necessarily create a Configuration. There were many other Septet Configurations involved that day, but they were diverted without much mention in the media. We are aware of at least 10 other hijackings that were diverted that morning, all unwittingly and/or specifically removed from the count for fear of a larger panic. We also believe the actual count of those who perished in the World Trade Center will be higher than the factual count. (Note: the number originally assumed dead turned out to be much lower in the end) The fragments on each jet liner who perished did so for their own “reasons”, of course. It may be obvious to many of our Students that this event in nearly all its manifestations was not a Karmic Balance, but rather a Karmic Creation. Those who perished in the Pentagon were most involved with the burning of Karmic Ribbons, but nearly all others involved were not. The Karmic Ribbons of those in the Pentagon and Philadelphia crashes were shared in various fashions between the hijackers, the passengers, the families connected, and occupants of the one building. We encourage you to “feel” the difference between the World Trade Center energy and the energy of the other two attacks. You may sense the difference then between Karmic Balance and Karmic Creation. The complexities of all the Ribbons created and/or burned is a topic unto itself and we would offer discussion of this angle if our students wish. The fragment who is the media’s focal point of responsibility behind this entire event is Osama bin Laden, a 5th Level Young King with Priest Casting, an Idealist in Observation Mode sliding to Perseverance, Moving Centered, Intellectual Part, with Chief Features of Stubbornness and Arrogance, with a discarnate Priest Essence Twin, and 3 Task Companions consisting of all Servers, Server Cast. He is from Energy Ring 5, Cadre 9, and Entity 6. This fragment, ironically, is acting primarily from his True Personality[††], completely true to his Soul Age and Level. Whether this is compatible with the rest of the world is not the consideration of a Young Soul. There are many atrocious fragments in history who were living from the Positive Poles of their Overleaves. The 5th Level of any Soul Age is entirely about creating Karma and pushing the boundaries of limitations that have been instilled from previous generations. The 5th Level in the Young Soul Cycle is going to push these boundaries and limitations within the playground of competition and physical effect. Though this fragment is enthralled in creating Karma, this event was inspired by a Karmic Ribbon shared between himself and the current President of the United States. We will address this in a moment. This King fragment truly believes his mission is guided by and supported by his god, and we would say it would be hard for him to think differently, considering the near-consistent successes and uncannily smooth implementation of his plans being fulfilled across time. He feels his god is on his side. Though his actions are corrupt in relation to the more loving paths that could be chosen, so are the many things that have led this fragment into the position in which he believes himself to be. Part of his motivation stems directly from actions and choices made by the collective choices of the U.S. as they affect his beliefs and country. This is not our stance of justification, merely a reminder that this situation has a larger dynamic than what is seen on the superficial level. This leads us to the crux of this Karmic situation: the culmination of a high-profile Karmic balance between the Late Baby Scholar fragment who is George Bush, Jr. and Late Young King Fragment known as Osama bin Laden. The Karma between them is a Major Ribbon seeking to be burned, though many more Karma will likely be created in the process, which is not unusual for the early Soul Ages. A side note: It may appear that the fragment who is now George Bush, Jr. would be a Warrior, or at least a Young or Mature Soul, but these deductions are based on outward characteristics that can be attributed to generic interpretations of our terminology. This Scholar does have strong Warrior imprinting and is Warrior-Cast, however. It may appear this Scholar is strategic, but the strategies are those of his strong Support Circle. This is not to say that the Scholar does not agree with or contribute to these strategies, but for the most part this fragment would be lost without that support and direction. It may also appear that this fragment is bent on eager Young Soul values or identifying Mature Soul equality and fairness, but these qualities are only a relaying of that which is being expressed through him of others’ ideals. Stripped of this strong circle of support, this fragment is terrified and confused as to what is going on beyond his personal world. The Karma between the King and the Scholar originated in Egypt, nearly 4000 years ago at the beginning of the 6th Dynasty. The King fragment, known then as Wenis, was murdered by those directly assigned by the Scholar fragment who was then known as Teti. Investigating this history (which appears to be accurately recorded) should shed light on this now-escalated Karmic event. The destruction of the icon of the World Trade Centers parallels a past bold erection of the Pyramid of Teti, which also collapsed in a pile of rubble, killing many. The memory and records of Wenis and all of his fine contributions to the kingdom led him to be equated with the god, Osiris. Those who “follow” Osama now are those who revered him as Wenis/Osiris then. Teti is obscured by history and found to be a minor, if not negligible, leader in history. That same Scholar intends to be “remembered this time”, despite the repeated fall of his “pyramids”. We remind you that this channel is not one of our stronger historians, but we do believe enough information has been conveyed that extrapolations can be made on your own. The symbolic archetype from this event is, of course, the dance of the ancient concepts of “Good Vs Evil”. This is where the Baby Scholar’s own contributions come in, creating a scenario of War against an Evil Enemy with a Twisted God. Ironically, with further education about the “Evil” being fought, most fragments extant and part of the Mature Soul consciousness shift will begin to empathize with the motivations behind the troubled, religious zeal of the turbulent lands where the “Evil” comes from. Another level of the symbolism of this event is in seeing this as playing out the continued global shift to Mature Soul Consciousness. Though Young and Baby Souls are the catalyst, their motivations nicely dove-tail with the larger picture of Soul Age transition on the planet. Nearly all fragments who perished in the Pentagon and in Philadelphia are in part of their normal process of review and after-death experiences. The members of the Cadre of fragments involved in the World Trade Center collapse are variously, in hundreds of Configurations, completing Tasks that are part of a larger picture. Each fragment will examine his or her Personality and most recent life as each fragment senses a completion of his or her Task after death. Most of the Configurations within the Cadre who “died” include fragments from other Cadres who are still extant, and the discarnate fragments are acting as Inspiration, Expression, Action or Assimilation influences within these groupings. The probabilities as they extend from this point are still volatile and precarious. War of some sort is nearly imminent, standing high in probability at 86%. How and where this will manifest is not clear. The probability of more terrorist attacks is quite high, as well, standing at 74%. We have said before, but will say again, that New York City has always had a high probability of chemical or biological weapons being unleashed on the city. Nearly 5 years ago we mentioned the probabilities would drop after 5 years; 2001 being the final year of that time frame, though now an even higher probability of manifesting is present (even if diverted). A biological attack would be quickly contained and have minor effects, but it is still high on the options for the terrorists local within the U.S. (note: as of August 2004, Michael says that the probability of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil is still high, around 70% probability, while the use of biological attacks in NYC have dropped to a 30% probability). One major terrorist plan of probability stands as the taking hostage of a small town (or various small towns) in the United States. Though the probability is fairly low at 48%, dropping from 67% 3 weeks ago, it is not shifting enough over these days for us to discount it. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that the probability of small-town hijacking is at 48%) Small bombings and interruptions of communication and transportation will continue to be a primary means of attack, along with assassination attempts. (note: as of August 2004, Michael states that this probability is at 80%) (Probabilities are asked to Michael in terms of “will this happen again within 10 years?”) We do not share these probabilities as a means to express “doomsday mentality”, but rather to respond to the request and questions posed to us about this pivotal situation on your planet. Please remember that the long-term effects from this event and its shadows may have the world in a far more peaceful, tolerant, and humble state of mind and heart eventually. Though this violent type of growth for a population is not necessary, it is the choice of many to experience that drama, adventure, emotional embracing and turmoil, and the excitement of such a precarious shift. Those qualities are the hallmark of early Mature Soul paths, even if within the context of Young/Baby wars. Many Americans were “bored” on all levels, but now nearly all fragments are “awake”. We have not seen such a vast manifestation of Essence and True Soul Ages in the United States before. This will not last, of course, but the potential for general peace and transformation is high, currently. A final mention of probability will be that the Scholar will most likely be directly involved (even if discarnate) in the rebuilding of “his pyramid” in place of the World Trade Center. The buildings may literally take pyramidal shape or a similar architecture to the Eiffel Tower, in a set of two or four buildings. Q&A 1) Could Michael comment on the reactions people have had, of pulling together, and of suddenly feeling like we are one family? I know they said a bit, but if there is any elaboration on this that can be made, any comment on this sudden state of being "Awake", I think it would be interesting. MICHAEL: The primary reaction/response that most fragments have found as a result of the terrorists' attack was a temporary shift into one or more of the Higher Centers. We have said many times that stress, anguish, and trauma tend to be some of the few ways any fragment finds their way to the Higher Centers, except in the case of the Higher Moving Center, which is specifically designed to be accessible without much effort. For nearly 7 days following the events of September 11, most fragments were dealing with the effects of general, Higher Centered processing, mostly dealing with Truth (higher intellectual) and Love (higher emotional), and finding applicable ways to blend these realizations with Beauty/Energy (higher moving). It is not uncommon to have periods of time wherein the focus of a population may be from one of the Higher Centers, but it is rare that nearly an entire planet moves into one Higher Center, let alone all three. Tears are the biological reactions to Truth, and a great deal of Truth was revealed to many fragments in the wake of this disaster. Some realizations include: The "fragility" of life; unnecessary social facades; assumed isolations; the lack of Needs met within the life for self and for others; the importance of reaching out; the loss of Community over time; the forgotten importance of family and loved ones; mortality; Life Tasks and where you are in your life; Internal Monad processing; pointlessly-held anger and resentments toward self and others; who are the major Support Positions (primarily the Intimates, but all came under examination); that everything will change and nothing is permanent; what is important, in general, etc. The tears shed across the world after this disaster are personal and we only suggest the above phrases because they stand out to us, but there are many more Truths that are being examined. Every person had the opportunity to be free from their Chief Feature during those days, experiencing fully what their particular Chief Feature tends to create fear around. We remind you that your Chief Feature (fear aka “your protector”) is defined by a habitual, yet an unnecessary, protection against something NORMAL in life. In the 7 days following September 11, 2001, every individual had the opportunity to experience the very thing they struggle to protect themselves from habitually. For instance, Arrogance fears Vulnerability: those with this Chief Feature allowed themselves to fully experience Vulnerability without fear. Those who have Self-deprecation allowed themselves to experience Inadequacy (which leads to surrender). Experiencing a total sense of unknowing can free the Personality. Usually this kind of surrender is feared, but those 7 days allowed the Personality to accept that position in life, briefly, but without fear. Stubbornness usually fears Change, but as is obvious, the disaster would not allow a fragment with this fear to dismiss the reality that Change is imminent, constant, unpredictable, and sometimes sudden. Self-destruction fears Worthlessness, but there was a great amount of insight gained for several days, allowing those fragments to realize that what is normally seen as "worthless", including themselves, actually has high value in the context of a life that is lived while awake. Greed fears Lack, but those several days allowed one to realize how much one has, even if just for a moment in time. Impatience fears Time (more specifically, losing control of Time), but realized how very precious the Time has been that was actually spent (or how better to spend it). Martyrdom fears Space (more specifically, losing control of that space), but realized how good they have their life (or how good they could have it, with a slight attitude adjustment), even with the fragment's complaints, chaos or redundancy in the current life. On the whole, anything unnecessarily being carried in the Instinctive Center[‡‡] was released by most fragments. For those 7 days the Higher Intellectual Center of most fragments was highly-stimulated and examined, followed immediately by a stream of stimulation to the Higher Emotional, leading many to examine exactly what it is in the life that brings Pleasure and True Love, and how these can be appreciated, expressed, and given more appropriately. These realizations are now settling in with the Higher Moving Centered experiences of Oneness and camaraderie. Most of the world is experiencing itself for the first time as "One", even if pitted against a vaguely perceived enemy and even if not “on the same side”. Countries have felt this synchronization occasionally, but not the entire world. It is not random that people tend to describe some of the events since the attack as "moving", since this is the center related to feeling one with another. We remind you that although the entire world shifted into a Higher Centered perception, how that is experienced and expressed can differ greatly among continents, cultures and even neighborhoods. "Real life" is moving back into routine for most fragments now, and what was learned from the Higher Centers will either be dismissed or applied profoundly. Nevertheless, it will be long time before the experience is forgotten, if at all. When that many people are synchronized, nothing is ever the same after that. 2) What, if anything, can those of us who do feel our compassion and wider awareness awakened here do to bring some good to the situation? MICHAEL: As events unfold, the impact from these recent events will be proportional to how much resistance there is to the concepts of the Mature Soul. The Positive manifestation of Mature Soul energy might not be obvious as it shows up through what is normally interpreted as "corny" or "syrupy" or "sentimental" and even "weak" or "passive" but still sharing connection, empathy, and progress. The Negative manifestations of the Mature Soul concepts might show up in emotional devastations, submersion into “reality” broadcasts, massive events of deaths and disasters, and global or local tragedies that make the headlines more often. Older Souls may find themselves responding from distrust and typical cynicism, returning to the "old codger" way of living within a hermitted life, or they may choose to adapt a personal "lightness in their step" as they flow with their more spiritual and trusting nature. Mature Souls will respond dramatically no matter what happens, but this will either manifest insularly and protectively or through the need to reach out. Younger Souls (we include troubled Late-level Baby Souls) will be the most resistant and troublesome over the next 5 years or so, as everything that has been held dear in the established routine of standards changes drastically. Balanced Baby Souls will be turning to the Mature and Old Souls for direction and guidance, tuning their lives to the Mature Soul as their new Authority. We will comment for the Mature and Old Souls as to what might be able to be done to "bring some good to the situation": If you are a Mature Soul (or an Early Old Soul, Level One or Two), it would not be surprising to find yourself suddenly surrounded by Baby Souls seeking your life as a haven. Do not hesitate to share your spirituality, your concepts of life and how you live it, if you choose to take on that responsibility. Find your own spiritual haven and implement this as a regular part of your life. We suggest the Unitarian Church, study groups incorporating your search and philosophies, hobby groups, anything that includes you in a regular group activity of healing or spirituality. Reach out to family, friends, and strangers, spending more quality time exchanging and sharing and supporting. If you are an Older Soul (Level 3 or older) it is time to implement all of your knowledge to-date, and we do not limit this to the current life. You are the sum total of all lives lived to this point, and we suggest assuming your ancientness as something worth trusting. The world is still not ready to embrace the values of the Old Soul, but there is an opportunity here to help your fellow Humans through troubling experiences you know as all too familiar from other lifetimes. The Older Soul knows there is a choice in every instance as to how the life can be seen, created, and experienced. We suggest that the Older Souls practice releasing attitudes of fear and distrust. We suggest acknowledging the overall picture, practice feeling the greater motion of the Tao, recognizing the events unfolding as a collective choice and part of a larger pattern of certain progress. For now, this can best be done by creating "vividry" in your daily routine. This simply means to slow down your consciousness for a few moments, widen your eyes, release any tension in your face, shoulders, neck, hands, tongue, legs, and experience FULLY the environment you are in at that moment. It will not matter where or when you are, the effects will be profound after some time. Look closely at every texture, color, face, while feeling/sensing your own skin and looking at your body as this amazing extension of the "you" who is observing. Recognize that all people around you are their own ideas, manifested. Marvel at the creativity of these souls and personalities, trusting in their process as part of the Tao. Creating vividry in the moment can help you align with your own Essence and the potential Higher Center Energy that is available to you. The greatest contribution Older Souls have for the planet at this time is to "hold consciousness" (or vividry) right where you are, with as much generated compassion, trust, and acceptance as possible. This has the potential to incorporate a potential matrix of "safety" for all fragments who prefer to choose other than the more violent, tragic paths. We do not suggest this activity as a means to “protect from” or “fight against” the times, or as a means to save yourself and others from some vague threat, but more as an opportunity of choice to simply "float to the top" of the turbulence, releasing your energetic investments in any chaos. If you have not successfully navigated the 4th Internal Monad, or if you are under the age of 40, it may be more appropriate to take the Mature Soul stance we suggested above. You will know what is more appropriate, even if you feel a need to combine the ideas. Whatever your choice, all includes recognition of Others as Self. To summarize: Older Souls lighten up; and Mature Souls, reach out. The path to agape has just potentially "shortened" for your species. We cannot save you from yourselves, but we can assure you that there is nothing to lose when your choices include truth, love, and oneness as often as possible. As usual, we remind you that all is chosen and all choices are valid. We offered our perspective, not as instruction, but as a response to your question. We have no investment in how you choose, because we will see you through to the end of any path. END In reference to Michael commenting on the karma between Bush and bin Laden: COMMENT/QUESTION: Oooohh, I resent being caught up in personal karma between these two! Or at least, I would resent it, if I weren't so full of LOVE and COMPASSION and UNIVERSAL FELLOW FEELING. Hmmph. But why couldn't they have agreed to work it out on more intimate terms? Why do the rest of us have to get dragged into it? MICHAEL: We do not believe the current scenario is one that was planned or agreed upon before the life began. During times of great shifting in Soul Ages, there are multitudes of potential scenarios to help perform the catalyst for permanent implementation of the newer perceptions. A Soul Age shift on a planet requires a catalyst, whether positively or negatively implemented and any Soul Age group may contribute to that. The fragments who have shown interest in being that catalyst have nearly all been late Baby or Young Souls. Examining the events of major media shocks of an emotional nature across the past 7 years or so will reveal that truth. The greatest catalyst before the attack on the World Trade Center was the "Columbine Shootings". To be the catalyst for change while completing personal agenda is not only highly appealing to fragments, but creates enormous leaps of possibility for the fragments involved. Most who are directly involved on such a scale of shift literally condense their progress through the Soul Ages by several lives. Both of the fragments in question [Bush/bin Laden] are past the mid-points of their Soul Age, both near the end of their current levels. We believe their 7th Levels will be reached within a few lives or so. Although it would appear to be unfortunate, many find the greatest opportunities for progress and growth in the excitement of danger, war, death, trauma, and general anxiety. We believe this to simply be the nature of the soul as it progresses through the discovery of more comfortable forms of growth. In a world where it is acceptable to the Personality to harm many forms of life as a means of convenience, to exploit as a means to gain knowledge and ensure comforts, it may not be surprising that Essence then has no reference for what might be a more compassionate form of growth and progress on a larger scale. In other words, when compassion is so severely limited within a species, Essence has not gained experiences enough to know that pain and struggle and suffering do not have to be “normal”. We remind you that your lifetimes contribute to your Essence's growth and it processes ONLY what it learns from/through the Personality. Compassion for self begins first, extending then to your family, community, other species, other kingdoms, and eventually to your entire species. The average level of compassion on your planet is currently limited to a community level. Essence is only intelligent from a "higher perspective" because of what it can glean from all the lives lived to that point. It is not “all-knowing” or even “all-loving” to a point that negates the need for growth; if that were the case, incarnating would be pointless. Essence is LEARNING. From YOU. If its basic input to-date has been from the experiences of self-preservation, then the contexts in which the newer Personality finds itself will be using that as a base. It is up to the new personality (your current self) to grow beyond what Essence has learned so far. Many Older Souls are drawing from that primary base of self-preservation because the scale of this event is larger than what is in their own instinctive history across time. Self-preservation has sufficed to this point in your planet's growth, but with this catalyst, combined with the immediate access to the world-at-large, more than self-preservation of the immediate life and environment are being drawn in. In other words, regardless of the age of your Soul, a level of realization for the need for compassion beyond your own community, responsibility in choices, and emotional accessibility is new to everyone. TO EVERYONE. Each Cadre, Entity, and Fragment will learn their own versions of what growth means, and this is why there is no standard or external force waiting to "grade", approve, or "pass" you. When you are done learning what you want, you are done, ON YOUR TERMS ALONE. There are no exceptions. In light of that, we would suggest that as the planet progresses in average Soul Age and population, the more "advanced" the lessons you will begin to seek. All of you present currently “wanted” to be present for this shift, regardless of how it feels now. You would not be involved on any scale if there was not agreement between Essence and Personality on some level to endure this event. The versions of you in this parallel[§§] were highly interested in "something" acting as a strong enough catalyst to being people into the awareness of the planet as a Whole, and to provide a more sudden excuse/justification for coming together. The attempts were originally, passively made in what you call "reality television", the numerous school shootings, Princess Diana's death, and several other events and films, but those were too gradual for most tastes. This recent event did what no other event has. It re-humanized the world. Previous to this, there was only the Young Soul context for interaction in that each feared that another was only out to "use you", "get something", or simply to impose on you. We have seen a 70% drop in this mentality across the planet within these past two weeks. These kinds of barriers do not drop momentarily, they are nearly always permanent. Your choices will lead from here. -Michael ORIGINAL FINAL NOTE FROM TROY: I am glad some of you are getting something from the report. It only skims the surface of the situation, I know, and I am aware when channeling that there is a vast amount of information to be obtained. I seem to be remaining connected to Michael even while not in full focus and there is a weight of information sitting there. Most of it is probably not necessary to know, but some of it will get through appropriately, either through me or other channels. I'd like to refine the details of the Cadres and Entities involved, since that was a rough draft of the situation. This reminds me: MBV SAYS: If a cadre/energy ring working through discipline could cause such destruction, what might they have done if they put their minds to a cure for cancer or something of that sort? TROY: I wanted to clarify that I did not get the impression that the Cadre was the CAUSE of the destruction in any way!! I got the impression that a situation was going to occur in some way, some how, and this Cadre ELECTED to be part of that, not really “knowing” how it would eventually unfold. This was a collective event, albeit using as a catalyst the Karma between George and Osama. And as far as a cure for Cancer; I think that is the same thing as asking what the cure for Fear is. When we can erase fear, then illness will probably have no home. I'd like to look further into the person who is Osama and his history, what is motivating him from other angles than Karma with George. Anyway, I am doing my best, and will continue to try! Love, Troy (This document was grammatically edited and re-sent to groups in August 2004) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [*] This Cadre/Entity system is based on the “classic” (Michael’s) version, not “shepherd’s”. 1 Energy Ring = 12Cadres = 84Entities; Michael is from Energy Ring #1, Cadre 11, Entity 4, while most who are currently part of the Michael Teachings as Students are in Energy Ring #2; Energy Rings are grouped in 12 called a Division, as well. This may conflict with other channels, but we will figure it out someday; I apologize for any discrepancies. Some channels number the Energy Rings consecutively with no groupings. One channel I know of has labeled Michael’s Cadre and most of our own Cadres in the same Energy Ring #14.
  2. OMW - Jun 14, 2013 - Getting The Most Out of Your Platform Channel: Troy Tolley BRIDGE TO REMEMBERING MEntity: Hello to everyone. We are here, now. We will begin our discussion with you regarding the concept, function, and application of the Platform. [Bobby] how do we really know it's you? [GeraldineB] Hello, Michael - have been thinking a lot about you lately [Bobby] I'm just kidding, proceed MEntity: We regard that as a valid question. We are asked this by Troy on a regular basis. Our response can only be that identity is already difficult to pinpoint with any staticity within a closed system, and even more difficult to do so from outside of that dense and temporal systems. Staticity: Any static force must act instantaneously, since any finite speed of propagation would destroy the force's staticity There are unique consistencies to every fragment and form of consciousness that are known to all of us, inherently, even from within the densest forms of our consciousness. In most cases, that consistency can only be experienced as a "knowing," or a kind of remembering that is difficult to reject, from within the denser planes. We think the questioning of the validity of our presence and identity is valuable for sustaining sensitivity to that state of remembering. It is also how you grow to remember who you are, as well, from beyond the beautiful limitations of your current form. This is not unrelated to the subject requested for discussion. It is part of the point of the Platform: a bridge to remembering. The concept of a Platform is brought to incarnations as a means for Essence to gain from the lifetime the intentions for birthing that lifetime. For most of one's incarnations, the Personality rules each lifetime, including the various parallel versions. The Personality is asleep more often than not. This is not a "bad thing." It is expected, and inherent within the denser planes. Regardless of the intentions for a lifetime, the Personality will create that lifetime from its choices, which may or may not be in alignment with the original intentions of Essence. This is an exciting part of the incarnational process for Essence. It is a microcosmic reflection of how Tao experiences each of its Essences. Your lifetimes are "fragments" of your Essence, as each Essence is a fragment of Tao. However, regardless of all of the newness and experimentation brought to Essence from each Personality's process of choice and awakening, the Platform ensures that the intentions of Essence can extract from those experiences anything that contributes to the greater intention, without interfering with the lifetime or Personality. The Platforms are broad enough to "catch in its net" a great deal that supports the greater intentions. [GeraldineB] Question: Then why does there need to be a Review at 7-year intervals? MEntity: Along with the Platforms come the built-in cycles of Review. Those are built in based upon the life span of the species, as well as its astronomical and astrological dynamics. Even if a Personality has completely rejected the notion and existence of Essence, the general 7 year cycle for access to the Instinctive Center will allow Essence to be updated, and to contribute to the life, if it feels this is necessary, or if it is requested (even subconsciously or unconsciously). The experiences gained and collected through the Platforms cannot be accessed between those Reviews, unless the Personality allows for it. For the younger souls, and for those who reject Essence, those Reviews tend to be rather dramatic, because it is a fairly massive "upload" and calibration period. The Platform and Reviews, then, work together, and are often the only access Essence has to the lifetime of a Personality. Keep in mind that we differentiate these levels of the self as a means of simplicity, but in the larger context, they are not experienced as so divided and independent. Over the course of incarnations, there begins to grow a consistency of awareness that starts with the questioning of "who am I; why am I here?" Those questions can only come when Essence is present, Manifested. Those questions come because in the earlier states of Manifestation, it is bewildering for Essence to finally "see" through "your" eyes, through the eyes of its creation. A new dynamic of consciousness is birthed in those moments. Once the conduit of consistency has formed from those moments, the Soul Age is shifting toward Mature. By the time one is an Old Soul, it is quite difficult NOT to have that dynamic conduit between the Personality and Essence. Reviews are no longer dependent upon biology, astronomy, or astrology, or death. Access to the experiences of the life comes to be freely available, along with calibration and collaboration. This is not to say that Manifestation is consistent, sustained, welcomed, or easy for the older soul, but that it is relatively more so. Platforms come on a fairly regular basis in cycles that last between May of one year to April of the next. This cycle is based on precedence set long ago in the species relative to the seasons. There is a Platform for each of you based in 100-year cycles, as well, and one for the entire species/Design, as well. [Bobby] why that cycle, Michael? MEntity: This is based upon the general cycle of Review that the species moves through as a whole. Every 100 years there tends to be a collective Review on a grand scale. This is due in large part to the average lifespan of the bodies over eons, sometimes spanning much longer, sometimes far fewer in years. 100 worked well as a means for large groups to incarnate, live, gain experiences, die, and contribute to Review. As our students have come to be aware of Platforms, and for those who comprehend the concept, they help to bridge between Essence and Personality on a scale that can bring about full Manifestation more consistently than any other single concept in our teaching. Every part of our teaching contributes to that full Manifestation, if used as a tool for living, choice, and consciousness, but when one actively notes the Platform for a cycle, notices the patterns, and contributes to the understanding of those patterns, the conduit between Essence and Personality can grow in ways that even understanding the concept of Essence cannot. This tends to be because the Platform includes the mundane elements of life, and not just the internal workings of the self. Noting the Platform helps bring to the life an acute, curious, and willing awareness that tends to enjoy the process of the patterns that can contribute to the Platform. In addition to this, because of the conscious awareness brought to one's patterns, choices, and experience, the feedback to Essence is on-going and alive, which naturally fuels the Personality in a way that it is not fueled when rejecting of Essence. The Platform you received from us tells you a part of your story, not just as potential for Personality, but as intention from Essence. Even if only one experience in your Platform Cycle were to contribute to a Platform, it is valued and cherished by Essence. The ecstasy for Essence when a Personality openly invites Essence to the life is already fairly profound, and never "gets old," but then the willingness of Personality to grasp the general patterns of intentions through the Platform, is enthusiastically blissful. Essence loves to be loved, accepted, and included, as much as "you" do. Though you and Essence are the same, the experience is similar to when you stop for a moment to truly accept yourself. You are the one doing the accepting of yourself, but that does not diminish the power of doing so. As you have seen through our discussions with you regarding polarities, Love in its simplest description is merely inclusion. The greater the circle and depth of inclusion, the greater the practice and experience of Love. We offer all of this information and insight to you today before taking your questions because your questions may take on a new light, new depth and meaning, when understanding just what these Platforms mean for Essence and you. QUESTIONS and ANSWERS [Maureen] Michael, interestingly, I am going through my second (and may be my last) Saturn Return and my 2013/14 Platform is RETURN. I see teeth as being representative of Saturn (for instance in dreams). In “real” life a dental bridge (Platform) in my mouth has just recently failed and I am having to get more dental implants. One side of the bridge was not “supported” at all. Is this just a coincidence or is the symbology to be noted and incorporated (a pun…) into this period of RETURN? If this symbology is relevant -- what is this communicating to me? MEntity: Maureen, the symbology and significance would be yours to determine, and these are not necessarily messages as much as they are reflections of a process. In other words, teeth would not necessarily be the same important symbolism to another who is in a Saturn Return, or a Platform of Return. [Maureen] I even had a picture fall off a wall with a "failed" bridge. Maybe I'm just skittery these days. LOL MEntity: The Personality tends to develop symbolism as a means of packaging concepts, and these can then be used for communication, not only with others, but within. [GeraldineB] (teeth and bridges? snort. . .Michael is getting funny again) MEntity: We think your system of symbols and their use for communication is fully functional and intact, with the emphasis on "bridges" and the Platform of Return all contributing to the extraction of experiences regarding a peace in ownership of the wholeness of the self. As reflections of the process, these seem to indicate that your attention is being brought to the areas of the life that have been taken for granted, have been ruled by presumption, even prejudices. Even the oldest of souls "nods off" in life, and presumes he or she has no more to learn, no more to offer, or that things are going to stay where they are because that is where they have been. But pictures can fall. Teeth can loosen. Surgeries can require revisits. And none of these are about failures. They are about caring, tending, and the patience that is required for revisits to that which one thought was already set. Does this make sense to you, Maureen? [Maureen] I felt a burst of love and realization with that Michael. . .and some tears [Janet] My platform is True Realization. I have been trying to practice what you call vividry on frequent occasions. It's often useful for bringing me back to what's really important in my life. On several occasions, my intent to really focus hasn't worked. It can be a lovely day, and I try to take it in, but for some reason it feels like I'm outside looking in and nothing seems fully colored in, so to speak. Nothing seems real. It has occurred to me that perhaps this is because what I'm seeing ISN'T real, but it's somewhat frustrating because it makes me feel like I'm observing rather than participating in my life at that moment. Is this in any way related to my platform? MEntity: Yes, Janet, it is related. (Note from GLB -- I SO wanted to just leave that answer "as is" and type NEXT) MEntity: When one wishes to truly grasp a concept, there tends to be a necessity for contrast, experimentation, and degrees, which then allow for the truth to be known, not just speculated or forced. In your case, your efforts for moments of Vividry are resulting in your realizing: One - they cannot be forced; Two - that sometimes you miss the point. What we mean by the latter is that your moment of vividry may not open you to the sunlight, color, and texture of the exterior of you, but it put you directly in touch with your inner landscape that is just as important for bringing vividry. Sometimes when one cannot bring oneself into the vividry of the external world, there are internal landscapes drawing your attention. In your case, Janet, there are tears that have been withheld, ignored, or dismissed. These are as important to the inner landscape as the rain is to the outer. [Janet] Hmmm. I'm pretty stoic as a rule. But this makes some sense and I will consider this. MEntity: In those moments where you find your vividry turning you inward, let yourself go there, bring that vividry within, and turn your feelings, thoughts, and energy into symbolic landscapes of beauty. [Bobby] In my Platform, in the last sentence, you stated "There may be some surprising moments of harmony over this Cycle that are remembered for lifetimes to come." I found this statement very intriguing. Would you elaborate on what you meant by this a little more, especially the part linking to future lifetimes? MEntity: Many students begin their search across lifetimes for the resonances that may be the cause of pain, Karma, etc, but what truly link together lifetimes is the resonance, the harmonies. In fact, once a Karma is balanced, or a pattern of struggle that activates a Past Life is completed, these unlink those lifetimes, if you will. But those links of harmony and resonance are binding, permanent, and become that which Essence uses for wholeness in the reunion in higher planes. Over this Platform Cycle, there would tend to come more noticeable moments of harmony and resonance that come, in general, but it is those moments of harmony and resonance that are brought from those moments when they would otherwise have difficulty being nurtured that you may find the surprise, and those would be memorable. [Bobby] Has there been one of these yet that I can reflect back on? MEntity: This is when the power of choice is truly brought to light. If you cannot answer that for yourself, then there probably has not. [Bobby] lol, ok MEntity: Keep in mind that there is a difference between using choice to pacify a situation, to divert a situation, and when choice is used for nurturing harmony and resonance within, or between yourself and another. The surprise factor might come in the form of, "oh my. that worked!" "Worked" referring to a return to, or a creation of, a state of harmony and resonance. [GeraldineB] The only Question I have at this time would be: Is it possible to have a 100 Year Platform as a report where it wouldn't be prohibitively expensive due to being too time consuming for Troy? And, would it include all incarnations and concurrents for that period? The theme or pattern of their life tasks as it were. MEntity: We have provided these in general form through Troy as "uber platforms." If details were to be explored regarding the various lifetimes contributing to the Uber Platform, it could include the lifetimes contributing to that cycle, their Life Tasks, but the year-by-year detail of each Personality's Platform Cycles would be tedious, though not impossible. [GeraldineB] Oh -- so 100-year Platform is a year by year rather than an overarching view? MEntity: They are not year-by-year in terms of uber platform, but there are year-by-year Platforms within those that tend to contribute to the uber platform. All of you are in a new Uber Platform as of the general vicinity of the year 2000, as is the whole of incarnating Sentience, having moved from an Uber Platform of Debt to an Uber Platform of Choice. [GeraldineB] And, boy oh boy, are the Choices becoming "interesting" MEntity: In closing for this subject, we can suggest that as each of you move forward in your Platform Cycle, that you move gently, lightly, and without concern. It is not a description of prediction or obligation. It is an invitation, if anything, and always open, never demanding or obligatory. Are there any further questions before we close? Do each of you feel more intimate with your Platform than before this exploration on the subject? [Maureen] yes [GeraldineB] I do [Bobby] yes, I'm looking forward to working with it MEntity: Good day to each of you, then. We will conclude here. [Bobby] Thank you, Michael. And by the way, I really knew it was you all along ;-) MEntity: Goodbye. Another Note from GLB: As you can see, this was a very relaxed session; so, I decided to leave in most of the humor. Now. The real reason for this note: I will be following the idea of Uber Platform/100 Year Report down with Troy. At this point, ALL reports will be tested out in advance of offering them. SCR was the latest whose scope was envisioned on such a large scale that it became too time-consuming and if priced according to the time would have to have been priced in excess of $500. The Essence Reports started out similarly, but did finally stabilize into a do-able timeframe after doing enough of them. But, let's see what I can work out with Troy as I know the interest would be there; however, since we've just started a 100 Year Platform (well, 2000) there may not be all that much to report, too. I'll keep you all apprised. Also, when this gets posted, Maureen has some Astrology information to add in a comment, which I will insert into this about Saturn's return being about Return and in 7-year cycles (hence, the Review cycle for earthlings. (Note from Kasia: the Astrology information from Maureen is below.) Comment from Maureen: From Wikipedia: "In Astrology a Saturn return is an astrological transit that occurs when the planet Saturn returns to the same place in the sky that it occupied at moment of a person’s birth. While the planet may not reach the exact spot until the person is 29 or 30 years old, the influence of the Saturn return is considered to start in the person's late twenties, notably the age of 27. Psychologically, the first Saturn return is seen as the time of reaching full adulthood, and being faced, perhaps for the first time, with adult challenges and responsibilities. The phenomenon is described by Western astrologers as influencing a person's life development at roughly 29.5 year intervals, though the planetary influence may be felt for a few years before the exact conjunction, and variable orbits of the planets can also make the time period longer or shorter. These intervals or "returns" coincide with the approximate time it takes the planet Saturn to make one orbit around the sun, roughly 29.5 years. Western astrologers believe that, as Saturn "returns" to the degree in its orbit occupied at the time of birth, a person crosses over a major threshold and enters the next stage of life. With the first Saturn return, a person leaves youth behind and enters adulthood. With the second return, maturity. And with the third and usually final return, a person enters wise old age. These periods are estimated to occur at roughly the ages of 27-31, 56-60 and 84-90. A fourth return occurs for very few people - those who live to see the age of 114-118."

    Lunar Nature: Cultivate Awe

    [Excerpt from private session posted as Body type information and influence of tertiary CF] <ViP1> Please give me my mix of body types with percentages, together which of them correspond to Appearance, Nature and Health. And, if there is any information specific to my body types that could shed light on why I easily fall into pessimism and despair when faced with challenges, I would appreciate some specific focus on that (and how to improve on it, to be more RESILIENT and POSITIVE, specifically, in the face of challenges where I cannot immediately see a solution.) <MEntity> The Body Type mix would appear to be Lunar/Venus/Mercury at approximately 15%/60%/25% respectively, as Nature/Appearance/Health respectively. Part the contribution to your sense of pessimism and despair is in the way that the Lunar element processes experiences. This would not be a CAUSE of the pessimism and despair, and you are not a victim of this body type Nature, but the way this body type processes can often be experienced as such. This body type processes experiences from an immature angle on events. This immaturity is not an insult, but rather a reference to this body type holding to a child-like processing of events. It is sensitive, does not like conflict, is more inspired by awe than effort. It is a constant movement of emotion and perception that can be as cyclical as the literal waxing and waning of the moon. When this body type is not understood, or is in a part of the adult, it can become distracting because of this childlike immaturity and sensitivity to conflict, pain, and effort. In addition to this, there is the Stubbornness that is the Tertiary Chief Negative Feature and this is how you protect the body, or your sense of threat to any physical well-being. Stubbornness here was developed to protect the body and its physical world from change, unwanted change, changes toward the unknown. The Lunar and Venusian bodies love comforts, crave comforts, familiarity, and Stubbornness works here to do its best to secure this. Because Stubbornness is a neutral Chief Feature, it can "slide" to any other Chief Feature as a way to help protect against change and the unknown. Often this is done by sliding to Martyrdom and Self-Destruction. This means there would wish to be control over your environment and space as a means of protection or a resignation into sacrifice against your own wishes, letting someone else take priority over your own sense of value. Keep in mind that you are not a victim of this design as we describe it. We only describe how you have learned to handle challenges and fears, and how they are processed. We describe these things to our students because much of what is thought to be protective and important to uphold, or as routine in defenses, can be altered toward much more efficient and rewarding effects through conscious awareness. So the first thing we can suggest for your move toward more resilience and positive responses is to KNOW that you are not locked into any initial despair or negative response. Allow room for the initial despair and negative response because this has great momentum and cannot be broken by mere rejection of those feelings. Instead, you introduce alongside those feelings and thoughts another option. "Yes, I feel despair and overwhelm, but I can include kindness, patience, and resilience, too." These are not mutually exclusive. The truth is that you have been resilient, positive, kind, patient. You may not notice it, or give it credit, or see its subtle effects, but these are a part of you, too. So the effort to include them alongside despair and negativity is only a matter of shifting more value toward their subtle presence and effect. When you cannot see an immediate solution, this slight shift, this reminder, this value given back to the resilience and patience and kindness necessary for the process of getting to that solution can make the process much more gentle and meaningful and clear. When you cannot see the solution, see the kindness. As for how to nurture healthy states for these bodies: For the Nature/Lunar, you would to well to free yourself to be more childlike in play, so that levity can come to be a strength of this body, instead of only the immaturity and sensitivity. For example, the more freedom a child has to play, and subsequently to make mistakes, get hurt, and recover, the more likely he can manage those scenarios that are far more grave in importance. Allow room for your metaphorical skinned knees, your mistakes, flaws, and cravings for play. There is some validity to the concept of the "child within," and this body type knows it well. He is kept secret, hidden, quieted, and then reveals himself in tantrum or self-destructive behaviors. We mentioned that this body type prefers awe to effort. Cultivate your awe. Even now, let the vibrancy of your environment come alive to you, the textures, temperatures, people, surfaces, colors, your tongue, your shoulders, etc. bring your consciousness to these things to give them back their vibrancy, their vividry. Bring yourself to tears for the awe that is life, that is your history, that is your possibilities. This is the healing and nurturing of anyone, but particularly to the Lunar Body Type.
  4. [Excerpt from TT (Private Session): 2004-10-25] [HeidiH] How can I become more confident? [MEntity] The key to your confidence can be found in the exploration of your ideas about Strength and Trust. At some point in your life you have decided two things: “strength can harm” and “trust must be earned”. Additionally, you have determined that “confidence” is the result of the combination of “strength” and “trust”. Being wary of both “strength” and “trust”, the result is your sensing a lack of “confidence”. Displays of strength and trust are as enticing to you as they are terrifying. You envy the confidence of others, yet you also condemn your own ability to express it. You diminish displaying your own levels of strength and trust because you never want to harm another person and you do not wish to invite potential harm, either. It is impossible for you NOT to have some sort of strength or trust in life, but you have eventually found ways of displaying your strength and trust in ways that are distorted or disguised. Your strength has been distorted into “endurance” and your skills of trust have been distorted into “invisibility”. Both qualities are valid and useful, but when combined for you, instead of experiencing confidence, you experience SEPARATION. The more separated you feel from others, the more you use endurance and invisibility, which, of course, perpetuates the cycle. The key, then, to your bringing more confidence into your expression is through PRESENCE. Being more present in the moment of your experiences may be an easier task to accomplish than trying to express your concepts of confidence. Being Present is also a quality of combining Strength and Trust. Instead of battling the issue of whether you are experiencing Confidence, you can approach a less-threatening concept of being Present, and still get the same results. In your case, being Present can be accomplished by randomly practicing Vividry, taking a class or course focused on speaking publicly, and exercising. Vividry is the practice of gently bringing to your conscious awareness exactly where you are at any moment. Feel your presence in space, see your hands, relax your face, tongue, shoulders, and notice the colors, sounds, temperature, and textures of a few moments. Experience the vivid awareness of those few moments and delight in the experience of being a part of your reality. Allow the vividry to bring a smile to your face. You too often disengage from your physical expression of your Being and condense your experiences into a small perspective that could be said to be limited to your facial region. In other words, it could be said that you are “living in your head.” Vividry will help bring your consciousness into all parts of your body, which is going to eventually shine as confidence. We would also suggest taking a course or class in speaking publicly, including considering classes in Improvisation. Learning how to organize thoughts, presentations, and spontaneous interactions within a safe group would greatly increase your ability to experience Presence and Confidence in daily life. And finally, we suggest that at your own pace, within a context that is interesting to you, we would suggest some form of physical routine of exercise, such as Yoga, Treadmill, Tai Chi, etc. Having these tangible approaches to being more Present will naturally provide you with the Confidence you wish to experience.
