Michael Speaks -- Open Floor Chat July 10, 2011 [Diane_H] What is the cause of autism/asperger's syndrome (a milder form of autism) from your perspective? [MEntity] From what we can see, Diane, as these are syndromes, there are multiple causes that come together to generate the symptoms that are called "autism" or "asperger's syndrome." As this tends to be a developmental syndrome, we think it is partially explained, in many instances, by the Goal of Re-evaluation for the Personality. It is simply one of the many ways that an Essence can create a Personality with a re-evaluatory aim for the lifetime. There are lifetimes that are physical re-evaluations, emotional re-evaluations, and intellectual re-evaluations. There are a multitude of ways for helping to bring that Goal into focus for a lifetime, and these conditions are ways to do that. [Diane_H] Are they generally planned before birth? - the syndrome [MEntity] With physical "causes" that may be difficult to pinpoint, but range from genetics, to deficiencies in diet from the mother, to post-trauma, to vaccination issues (which are legitimate concerns, regardless of claims for safety), to simply being slow development, to being complete misdiagnoses. The Goal of Re-evaluation appears to make up approximately 40% of the legitimate cases, with physical "causes" ranging across the suggestions above; with 30% being slow development phases, and 30% being complete misdiagnoses due to the methods of expression that a Personality may implement that are simply not satisfying to those around him or her. Those relative to the Goal of Re-evaluation would have been planned, but the others are developmental, and not always planned. We do not have the terminology through this channel to convey a specific response, but we think that the legitimate cases, regardless of original causes, would be dealing with synaptic or neural issues that can be treated. [Oscar] I would like to know if Lloyd Pye's theories have any ground. As such, are some hominid races (pre-Homo Sapiens) still alive on Earth today, and what were the races of the parents of the so-called Starchild, of which he has the skull in his possession? [MEntity] This Scholar known as "Lloyd" appears to have some footing in his theories, and though there are flaws and embellishments that are unintentional, we think it is worth exploring for the sake of concept. We do not see any of the "pre-homo sapiens" at this time. We also think the label of "star child" is a misnomer. [Brian_W] Hi Michael. The term "subtle energy" has been used quite frequently lately and many of us are curious, from a physical standpoint, what frequency and energy range does it fall under on the electromagnetic spectrum for us to detect and harness it? Does it propagate on, parallel to, or perpendicular to the existing electromagnetic spectrum? [MEntity] We may fall short again in terminology through this channel, but we can say that subtle energies fall just beyond the range of what you would call Electric and Magnetic Fields and frequencies. At this point, we know of no reliable means for detecting these without a living system involved, such as the musculature responses of a human body, which convert these into something observable, and without considering the concept of a empty space, or a vacuum in the calculations. We do think it is valid to consider subtle energies as being a kind of "vertical" energy vs the "horizontal" energy of observable energy. All subtle energy would require conversion, if harnessing or directing it were to be an aim. We are doing our best to convey the details through this channel, and we would suggest continuing to ask these questions in different ways at different times to help in generating a clearer picture. [Maureen] I have 3 planets (Sun, Venus, Mercury) in my 12th house. It is often described as being the house of isolation, hospitals, i.e., retreats of any kind, BUT I find this incongruent with the overall description of what it means to be “above the horizon”, usually pointing to “exposure” of sorts, for any planet placement. What is Michael’s take on this? What is the “true” meaning of the 12th house in Astrology? [MEntity] We would not qualify our response as clarifying the "true" meaning of the 12th House of a Zodiac, but we can say that it is A truth. As Astrology is a system of symbols, the flexibility of meaning and "truth" can accommodate a great many perspectives, maturities, and contexts. Our perspective of the 12th House, in terms of the Natal Zodiac, tends to be that this is where issues of collective inheritance comes in, with the planets emphasizing how these would be brought through the Personality. By "collective inheritance" we mean that which is a collection of imbalances, ideals, woundings, and/or patterns that are relative to a group of past Personalities of your Essence (past lives) or relative to those who your Essence intends to include as part of the current life. For those who lean toward an emphasis of Healing within the lifetime, either of the self or others, there can be a tendency for planets to populate this House. It could be called "The House of Healing," for that matter. When the Sun is present, we would think this is relative to SELF; with Venus present, it would indicate realms of Intimacy; and with Mercury present, it might indicate the realms of Communication. Each of those areas may come with built-in challenges that prompt a development of techniques and methods for Healing. This is a highly simplistic response, but a good start for consideration. [AnnH] I've been observing a great deal of divisiveness on many different levels. In the US overall, on my job (administration vs. faculty/staff), among friends, and in the MT community. Is this the tidy up from the June platform, or the movement into Pragmatist in July (sliding to Skeptic/Cynic), or just what I'm focused on? [MEntity] The emphasis of collective energy has shifted toward the Attitude of the year, which we see as Pragmatist. The first phases of emphasis tend to bring up the Negative Pole, and in this case, issues relative to perspectives rooted in Dogma are going to surface. The means through which to secure Dogma appear to be through the use of Cynicism and Skepticism, as Pragmatist perspectives slide into those. This means that some securing of Dogma will come in the form of Denigration and Suspicion. This is being played out currently in the United States over the "debt ceiling" and the divisive dogmatic maneuvers of those involved with that. In short: it is "not you." It is the world, in general, and everyone who is participating in the world in any way is going to find exposure to their own, or others', Dogma. The moment you notice another person or group as having a problem with their perspective because of their strict adherence to one acceptable pattern, we would suggest, first, exploring whether this is noticed for the sake of bringing to light your own Dogmas. That is not always the case, of course, but it is a healthy pause to make in the process of interpretation. We will have more to say about this, and suggestions for solutions, when Troy posts our Energy Report. [Geraldine] Due to some fairly fundamental differences between some parallels on earth, are there some Energy Rings that only incarnate into those parallels after they've become very different? Do all Essences in the same Energy Ring incarnate into all of the same parallels for a shared experience? [MEntity] Because all of one Design, or in fact, all within an entire Universe, begin "together," there is ultimately that "trunk" that will bind all of us. No matter how many branches will come from that trunk, ALL of us will share at least that primary binding/winding of realities that are similar enough or the same. However, there are no rules to the variations of branching, and one Entity, one Cadre, one Energy Ring, and any combination, can branch off into its own experimentations, with no other fragments involved at all, or at least not involved in any meaningful way. By "not involved in any meaningful way" we mean that your Essences are vast in their capacity for being present in any parallel at any time, so if, say, an Entity wants to explore one extremely experimental version of a timeline, it can appear to be populated by as many as necessary, but these would, in "reality," be props. There are multiple, solid versions of timelines for your cycles of incarnation by the time your Essence cycles off. Parallels exist up to and through the Causal. We have parallel versions of ourselves, as well. However, by this Plane, these versions become accounted for, and become a part of the integration process before moving to the higher planes. If it were not for these parallel versions, Entities would not have the opportunity for exploring the 6th and 7th Soul Ages. For instance, there is a parallel version of our relationship with you where we are incarnated as Transcendental, and you are a part of our audience there. In short: yes, there are many variations for how an Entity, Cadre, Energy Ring etc. cycle off, and part of the progress through the Astral and Causal Planes is the recollection of those variations. [Bobby] You've mentioned that the Chernobyl incident was one where alien intervention occurred. Did the recent Fukushima incident also precipitate such an intervention? If so, what sort of interaction is taking place? [MEntity] The Chernobyl event was one that included prevention, with some amount of hope that this would help move nuclear development down in priority, as it is quite unstable as a resource on a planet with shifting crusts. The impending destruction at Fukushima, however, is not being prevented, and is, as far we can see, even being encouraged, as this may end up being one of the "hard lessons" that caretakers may consider necessary to allow, much like eventually allowing the child to burn his hand so that the danger is fully comprehended. There are no interventions at this time, that we can see, at least. [jesuislulu] After researching about the more personal nature of Triads from my last POF session I came across a question regarding working groups....I cribbed this question from the Library as it resonated with information from previous sessions regarding my times in the Mystery Schools..... SO. Regarding your description of working groups as “a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in Alexandrine schools….,” this struck a cord with me. Could you elaborate a bit more and I’m not asking for details, but can you confirm whether I am part of such a group and if so, what its esoteric theme is? [MEntity] Yes, your Essence is part of such a Working Group: The Owls, who focus on a form of constant and persistent questioning until "satisfying" answers are collected. Owls may be associated with the sound of "hoo," but this Working Group asks "why." [MariLynn] there has been a recent trial decision in the Casey Anthony case, and the drama of it seemed to captivate the entire US, perhaps beyond, and I was wondering if this woman did have something to do with her daughter's death, as in guilt but, what can we take away from this drama, ie. what can be the "bigger lesson" for people? [MEntity] We cannot answer definitively whether this Artisan killed her Sage child, though we do see some record of awareness of from the Artisan that indicates her presence at the time. We cannot answer definitively because this is a Karmic issue that does not allow for access until the ribbons are burned, or at least those Essences involved are done locking down those records. When Karma is involved, particularly when it is still active, either in formation or balancing, the records are "locked down," so to speak, because to relay any details about a Karmic situation via any method other than one's own Essence, can incur Karma. Giving an intentional or an unintentional "heads up" about Karmic Ribbons can alter the entire dynamic of a lifetime for many involved. And while we would not be in danger of this through answering your question for you, we still cannot answer that question until those records are clear. There is no "big lesson" in the drama that has unfolded for the public, other than one that each chooses to interpret from the scenarios as one plays out "what if" or "if I were..." games with speculation, but we can say that this case symbolizes the growing shift of maturity away from glamor and fame for sake of glamor and fame, and the growing disgust with such seemingly blatant displays. [tkmppi] Do others of the 9 Pillars have 7 alternatives as True Home does (wilderness, ocean, etc., with the usual M math I presume)? If so, what are they? [MEntity] It is valid that each of the True Work, Play, Study, Love, Core, and Gift can be delineated as having 7 categories for each, but these would not be as personalized as our choosing more specific terms from within those categories. For instance, True Work *could* be described as being the same as your Goal, but this would lend no insight into that specific Life Task, or methods for implementing that Life Task, even as it may fall under the broader umbrella of Growth, Acceptance, etc. Or True Play might be understood as relative to your Attitude, and your means of forming Expression; or True Study as relative to your Mode, and your means of igniting Inspiration. True Love tends to be relative to the Level within Soul Age. True Core tends to be relative to Soul Age. And True Gift tends to be relative to Chief Features (or the means through which one transcends or transforms the Chief Features). We can delineate these in more detail at another time, but this is a start. [Jana_K] I have been watching a programme called Catastrophe on Discovery Science. It seems like the fact that life is possible on earth is only thanks to seemingly endless amount of "accidents" that have happened. Collisions of a specific type, in a specific order, with specific consequences, eruptions, freezes and so on. It seems like an awful lot of coincidence, because all of these events in the order they have happened have lead to making conditions for life possible. In addition to that, our planet is in a number of "Goldilock zones". Again - more and more unlikely coincidences. It seems orchestrated. Is it? By whom exactly? How? [MEntity] The means for which "life" is possible seems far more profound when the "perfect scenarios" are retrofitted to what is living at the time, but it is often the other way around that "life" begins. Or put another way, the definitions of "life" are often limited by the lifeforms defining it, and what is "perfect" for that lifeform is not perfect for another. Life exists in many forms in many ways, and the "Goldilocks Zone" for humans is very different from those who are silicon-based, for instance. What tends to happen in the creation of a Universe, from what we gather, is that the initial process is rather random in its formation, but eventually patterns emerge, much like a painter might splatter paint across a canvas and eventually find images in that pattern. The dominant patterns that begin to form throughout the universe then become the media through which "life" and Sentience will choose to evolve. In other Universes, some patterns may be more prominent than the carbon- and silicon- dominant universe we exist within. There are three dominant bases in this universe, but we do not have the proper word for conveying the third, in addition to carbon and silicon. There are more than three, overall, but those are the dominant bases. In other words, BECAUSE those bases developed as the most prominent pattern, Sentience used it, rather than the bases being determined, and then the universe having to shape itself around those parameters. [Paulyboy] How have other traveling species managed interstellar travel? Propulsion seems to have many difficulties around it (time dilation, energy requirements towards the speed of light, sheer distance, etc.), so perhaps bending space/time and "hopping" may be more the route to look into (I'm not really sure). What directions, openings, ideas, leads, principles, etc. would be a good aim for further opening of exploration and questioning of this topic in the future, given the vocabulary of the channel? I'd aim for the schematics and construction manual for a warp drive or TARDIS (/chuckle), but I doubt this would be quite the setting for that. Thanks! [MEntity] The concepts of folding space are valid, though not quite understood when put into current paradigms dependent upon propulsions. The "folding" of space that is used by many species includes the disassembling of matter from one point in space to the reassembling of matter in another. When the emphasis of exploration focuses on this method, the cascading of possibilities and potential might then lead to farther off-planet explorations. [Paulyboy] Sort of a teleportation type technology? [MEntity] It is a variation on that concept, yes, but rather than either a "beaming" or a "folding" acting as separate concepts, they come together. In most instances that we can see, the "beaming" comes first in development, and then the "folding." We will conclude here for today. Good day to each of you.
January 4, 2001 Troy Tolley, channel Open Floor [Michael_Entity] Hello. We are here. One moment. We realize, once again, there is no Topic suggested of us, so we will simply move into an Open Floor format. [ludmila] There has been much talk lately about child-abuse. What kind of karma or agreements is involved in this? Specifically sexual abuse of children by adult authority figures [Michael_Entity] Child abuse is not a standardized event. There are many factors that may be involved in the experience of abuse, whether between adult and child, human and non-human, etc. Karma is either created or is being balanced, though it is very rare for an Agreement to be involved, except in the Old and Mature Soul Cycles. Abuse when linked to an Agreement is specifically, then, related to the imprinting required for the fulfillment of the Life Task. Whether the abuse is “used” effectively as a tool in that process will rely on the fragment and the use of the Overleaves, in general. Abuse in relation to “Authority Figures” and children is not a category anymore than abuse from a stranger harassing a child on the playground. There are no definitions or differentiations that can create categories of abuse except in “styles” of abuse. We will say, however, that those who have experienced abuse as children at the hands of Authority Figures (assuming it is not a Karmic Formation) are generally balancing Karma related to Positions of Authority where Abuse was inflicted by “themselves.” As with all Burning of Ribbons, the Karmic situation is usually, simply, reversed. We do not know if we have addressed the deeper issues of concern or question here, but we have answered the question as stated, as clearly as we can. [mamajo] How can one tell when Karma is being created, and when it is an agreement to facilitate imprinting? [Michael_Entity] Any formation/burning of Karma interrupts and distracts the life in a deeply affecting way. Karmic Formation can usually be identified as lacking compulsion to be involved, but there is an element of shock and chaos. Karmic Burning of Ribbons is usually marked by a compulsion to remain involved far past logic and emotion and body would dictate otherwise, followed by a great relief when the Karma is burned. In the event of the Burning, much of what was so compelling is then seen in a bewildering light, as if you were in a trance the whole time. In terms of facilitating Imprinting, the fragment being abused usually has a “bizarre” sense of safety and peace throughout the events. There is a creation of a strong support group outside of the event, in many of these cases, which are rare, as we said. The abuse as imprinting is heavily marked by this use of the experience as a platform for a greater vision or affect on the life in a discernible way, without referencing the abuse in a negative way. [momhawk] Hello Michael. I was wondering about family ‘icons’ vs. ‘working groups’ as per your channel Victoria Marina. This material seems more in the Shamanistic vein, and I was wondering if there might be another way to view this type of Information, from a different ‘angle’ or slant (Perspective ;-) Does cadre 1/entity 1 have any ‘task groups’ that may be exploring “abuse” themes? Thank you. [Michael_Entity] Family Ikons are vastly different from Working Groups and have no bearing on each other. One is the imposition on the Personality as imposed by expectations from family and early environmental influences from important fragments in the life, while the other is a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in the Alexandrian Schools. Though we do not claim the latter as “our teaching,” we do have access to facilitating the teachers of that information. What you refer to as “task groups,” we may simply call Entity Themes. Your concepts of Task Groups, though, are not inaccurate, as there are pockets within the entity that do work on various themes. There is an “overall” theme, of course, for instance, in terms of your Entity being the most Cardinal and numbered 1 in your Cadre. Your themes in general will all be linked to Purpose and Simplicity; the positive and negative poles of any Entity One. Within the Entity there will be, again, a division in Cardinal and Ordinal themes. Many of you working with issues of abuse for your Entity are in the Ordinal half of your Entity. [momhawk] Would these ‘themes’ then, be like major and minor ‘octaves’ of learning experiences? [Michael_Entity] We would not link the terms “major or minor octaves of learning” to the themes. Those terms can relate to the overall Entity's collection of experiences and to a fragment's experiences, yes, but we do not define an order to these themes from this level with those terms. [momhawk] Ok, could entity one be ‘specializing’ in a major octave of HUMANITIES, with various ‘minor’ octaves (or ‘themes’) of those ‘subcategories’ (such as abuse), for instance? [Michael_Entity] The way you presented your last question, yes, your definition can easily be applied. Artisans are even more preoccupied with the architecture and order of an Entity and Universe than even us. We say that with validity, not necessarily to provoke humour. [nemo999] Should I expect or seek justice on the physical plane? It does not appear to exist here, or for a personality. [Michael_Entity] This would depend on your definition of “Justice.” If by this you mean a sweet feeling of satisfaction for having felt something has wronged you, there can be temporary satisfaction in various ways, but rarely does it settle the “soul.” If by Justice you mean an awesomely compassionate balance to every event, then that is something you can count on entirely to be found. [nemo999] Balance within one life span? [Michael_Entity] While on the Physical Plane, much of what is sought as “justice” is simply a need to be acknowledged. Much of what is defined within a lifetime as injustice or justice is but a minute part of the larger picture. It is only within the concepts of the Old Cycle that a fragment may truly be able to bring to the Physical Life a sense of that awesome balance. So, to answer your question more succinctly: to expect or seek justice within a lifetime before the Old Cycle is usually indicative of Maya, Self-Karma, Karma, or Chief Feature and the apparent balance may or may not be seen. [Kathie89] I am interested in palmistry. Does frequency show up in the hands? Specifically, do smooth fingers indicate high frequency and knotted fingers show low frequency? [Michael_Entity] The hands are an excellent indicator of how the Frequency is being used, but not necessarily what that person's Frequency is. Smoother joints/knuckles in the fingers do appear to indicate the processing of the life to be at a higher frequency, while more “knotted” joints/knuckles can indicate a halting or stalling of processing of the life. Those who have lower frequencies will have had “knotted” fingers for most of their life, regardless, and can rarely “smooth” them out, but those with higher frequencies can tend to create a more “knotted” structure due to being imposed on by lower frequency fragments. It is much more “acceptable” in general to have a lower to mid frequency, therefore those with higher frequencies are more subject to being reprimanded in their processing style for “not thinking,” being “too spontaneous,” “jumping into things,” being “chaotic,” etc. If lower frequency fragments surround a higher frequency fragment, the knotting can indicate this reduction of processing to accommodate. [Kathie89] So life experience can slow down a high frequency? [Michael_Entity] It cannot “slow” the frequency itself, but it can slow down the fragment's managing of it. For instance, those who have higher frequencies who deal with the imposition of lower frequencies tend to “pop their knuckles” more, burn their hands at some point seriously, get bitten, etc., as a means to bring a consciousness to the process that would normally not be required. We will note additionally that those with higher frequencies even when having knotted joints will still tend to have a “smoother” flow over the knuckle, a gradual shaping. Though this is not an intended pun, our response only touches the surface of this question regarding palmistry. There is more correlation that is valid. [Lori] I would like to know what working group or theme I might be in my entity seven, cadre one. [Michael_Entity] Though we do not specialize in that teaching through this channel, we can say that it appears you would be part of what is referred to as the HAWK Working Group. In terms of your Entity's Theme in general, Entity 7 is geared toward the spectrum between Inculcation and Eclecticism; the positive and negative poles of any Entity 7. The themes within your particular Entity are highly active in Teaching. Most specialize in addressing troubled Personalities in some fashion, offering insight, healing or teaching. There are a great number of psychiatrists, ministers, and therapists (physical and emotional), and musicians with focus on healing as the result of their music. Andreas Vollenweider is a prominent example of the latter. [Barb] Good evening, Michael. I realize you are not a “Psychic Eye” per se, but can you give us any probabilities as to what the next four years hold in store for the United States under the leadership of our next president, George W. Bush? [Michael_Entity] We do not believe this fragment will remain in a position long enough to warrant a look into the next four years. The percentages are quite high for this fragment to leave his position in a rather dramatic fashion. He only wanted the experience of “winning” and living up to his own Family Ikon. This is ecstasy for that fragment and the responsibilities that go with remaining in the position are far too overwhelming. This is one of your major shifts in Power that will be scrutinized. Especially after the apparent fiasco around the process of getting this fragment to that position in the first place. The next four years, though, will be focused on themes instilling a new consciousness around CHOICE. Your election was one of the first “lessons” around this Century of Choice and the ramifications of choice being interfered with or not enforced. A new “60's” mentality appears to be on the horizon with greater numbers in protest and “raising their voices.” It is safe to say that the Mature Soul consciousness is well under way on your planet. [MaryBV] I know the name for cadre 1, entity 1 is She-Hulk, but what is the name for Cadre 2, entity 3? If possible could we get the names for entities 1-7 in this cadre? [NOTE from Troy: Below, in response to the above question, is a good example of channeling being influenced by the limitations of ME. “I” read the question to Michael wrong and they responded to that. This is a more literal example, but any channel in their interpretation can distort any question and then the channeling/Michael responds to that. Sometimes that subtlety would be hard to see. Anyway, take it as an interesting fumble, if nothing else!] [Michael_Entity] That is not the name for Entity One, Cadre One. That is a convenient and affectionate name chosen by some of our channels to capture the “flavour” of that Entity's general dynamic. Understanding that these are not names chosen by us, we will share what, in general, has come to be references for these Entities: Entity One: “She-Hulk”; due to the Artisan/Warrior dynamic and the fact of Artisans being in more male bodies, while Warriors being in Female bodies. Entity Two: “The Loudmouths”; due to the high proportion of Artisans and Sages. One only need meet a fragment from that Entity to understand this nickname. [MaryBV] Michael, please excuse the interruption, but I was requesting information on cadre 2 [Michael_Entity] We are limited by our channel's eyes, of course. We are “blind” without them. We will respond again: since Cadre Two has so few fragments involved directly with us, there has come to be no consistent “nicknames” for the Entities. As we said, they are not names chosen by us, but we are unaware of any significant names at this time. It would not be difficult to create them, if you observe more of the dynamics of the entities involved. We, then, do not have an answer for this. [End of Channel Blunder, ha ha] [Barry] Regarding your description of working groups as “a configuration of fragments working on esoteric themes begun in Alexandrine schools….,” this struck a chord with me. I’m not asking for details, but can you confirm whether I am part of such a group and if so, what it’s esoteric theme is? (Cadre 1, Entity 6) [Michael_Entity] You are from an obscure grouping called LEOPARD. The themes involve being in highly contrasting environments from what your “true colours” are, thus bringing whatever teaching theme is being studied at the time to more fragments not directly linked to that teaching. Your entity and cadre have no bearing on the configurations. [liiona] How many members of 1/6 are incarnate vs. discarnate or cycled off? Any geographic concentrations? What do we “integrate?” What is our theme? [Michael_Entity] Cadre One, Entity Six has approximately 440 incarnated. There is a high concentration in the United States, along both coasts and what is the southern border of the country. There are approximately 262 discarnate, while approximately 372 are cycled off. The theme of Integration revolves around being a “magnet” for fragments seeking a touchstone of sorts. Many from Entity Six act regularly as a pivotal force in many lives. They also draw together groups of people to fulfill Agreements with each other and make connections that otherwise would not have happened. Any Entity Six works within the spectrum from Harmony to Connection; the positive and negative poles. Harmony creates a “solid” world for all fragments involved, while Connection simply joins fragments. Neither are good or bad, but merely the spectrum of the themes explored. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
MICHAEL SPEAKS Online 031607 MICHAEL: Hello to each of you. We are here. We will begin with the Energy Report as requested. This is our perspective of the collective patterns in consciousness generated by collective choices and attitudes over a specific period of time. We will first look at the greater arc that spans April through June, and then more specifically the weeks of April. As many of you already know, the first three months of the year relate to an emphasis on the GOAL aspect of the energy of the year. As April approaches, the energy shifts from an emphasis on the GOAL/motivations to an emphasis on the MODE, or relationships. As a momentum begins to settle for the year, then the relationships within the life begin to take on priority and focus, which is natural as the MODE is a description of how one RELATES. Your relationships, then, become a mirror for how you are progressing in many areas of your life where there is space between "you" and "other." "OTHER" can be anything, including aspects of the self. And "you" can be any aspect of you ranging from Essence to the whole Personality to your SubPersonalities. Being aware of how you relate to others can give you a strong reflection of how you relate within various areas of your own psyche. EVERYONE and EVERYTHING to which you RELATE is a reflection of the world within you. ALL of it. The desires, the angers, the longing, the inspirations, the cravings, the lying, the betrayals, etc. ALL of it. When we speak of the YEAR's Overleaves, this does not, obviously, override your own Overleaves, but it does set the context in which you experience the shared world. So in a year with OBSERVATION as the Mode, you may find that, regardless of your Overleaves, you find you are more aware of HOW YOU RELATE than usual, because the Year's Overleaf is emphasizing CLARITY as part of Observation. For instance, if your own overleaf is PASSION Mode, you may now have the opportunity to CLEARLY SEE what it is that ignites your passion and how that shows up in your life. Over the next three months, it will be very interesting for all of you to WATCH how you respond to life, people, choices, and experiences. This extra boost of support for self-awareness can be truly enlightening. For most of you, this bout of self-awareness is with an emphasis on OWNING your choices, because the year's energy is already deep into DOMINANCE, and rooted in the Warrior energy. This brings about a "no-excuses" type of energy that allows more room for your personal clarity and honesty than you may have had in awhile. In other words, we see most of our students beginning to "get over themselves" now, and start to own who they are, make their choices, and say to themselves and the world, "HELL YEAH!" We realize that exclamation is about as excitable as you would ever see us, but we see it as a particularly accurate celebratory phrase that captures the ownership many of you are accepting within yourselves, and we have actually heard some of you already use it. The last part of March and into April will most likely be a transitional period for many of you where you deal with the issues of how relationships fit into life patterns and personal goals for the year. Within that transition, you will most likely be examining how you relate to yourself within the contexts of those personal goals, as well. This means a lot of Self-Karma may come to the surface in the weeks ahead. If you are already familiar with your Self-Karma, this is a grand opportunity of time within the year to begin finding resolution within those Karma. By this, we mean that your bout of self-awareness and clarity can bring the choices that would allow for resolution. Because of the support of energy within the year overall, you can own those choices and do your HELL YEAH celebration. For example: 1. You wish to stop smoking. 2. You continue to smoke. This is Self-Karma: the inner battle between two concepts that cannot be fulfilled simultaneously. In the next three months, this person might finally feel the strength and conviction to simple RESOLVE this Self-Karma by making a choice: 1. HELL YEAH, I am a smoker! I accept it! or 2. HELL YEAH, I gave up smoking! I knew I could do it! So our suggestion for keywords over the next 6 weeks or so would be: HELL YEAH! Commitment Conviction [Upst8] I hear ya! [freyaisis] "Hell yeah!" [cimmarron] Own it baby [Upst8] I will and will let you know [Michael Entity] As an extension beyond the energy report, it is not amiss to remind each of you that this IS your life. Yes, it is shared with others on the planet and this is a factor that must be considered when making choices, but this IS your life. It is not necessary to have permission, approval, or pandering as your inspiration for fulfilling your wants and needs. [Upst8] amen to that one! ;-) [Michael Entity] The more consciously one fulfills his or her needs and wants, the more appropriately accurate the sources for those fulfillments become. We do not in any way suggest that one should ignore the impact of his or her choices on others, but we do emphasize that the more consciously you choose, the more kindly you choose, as well. [Upst8] and that is most important to know and own that [Michael Entity] We note here as part of your energy report that March 30 appears to be a particularly turbulent day for many of our students and we do not know why at this point. We do not mean this is a "bad" turbulence, as many of you who have flown know that turbulence is simply that: turbulence. But it will not be surprising to us that March 30 carries a particularly "bumpy" ride through the day. This is due to a consciousness shift, but it is not a Nexus, though it is possibly part of the patterns that will contribute to the Nexus that appears to be unfolding for April 13 through 19th. We will now open the floor to your questions. [cimmarron] Hi again Michael. it is good to talk to you through Troy. My question: can you tell me a bit about Simon Peter when he was alive. I believe you said that he has not reincarnated since that life. [Michael Entity] The fragment referred to as "Simon Peter," if we are focusing on the correct fragment you have in mind, was a rather poetic, feminine, and theatrical fragment who preferred words to be nurturing, mothering, and direct, even if comical and playful. He was appreciated, yet resented, for his method of leadership and associations with positions of power. It seemed to many that he "did not deserve" to be in those positions, yet those same people felt the strong influences, as well. This fragment does not appear to have incarnated since he was known as the name by which you refer to him. [freyaisis] Hiya Michael. I am asking - How so many of us as Michael students 'now' Knew each other in the time of the Alexandria 'Mystery Schools' and how those worked then that could work again 'now'? [Michael Entity] It is true that many of our students were also part of the process of creating, sustaining, and grieving what is known as the Alexandrian Libraries and Schools. Most who were involved took the process very seriously and worked with methods that moved the consciousness painstakingly deep into the personalities of those lives to create unions and circles and associations that have now come to be known as WORK GROUPS. Each group "burned" an association with an animal into the consciousness of the time so that in future incarnations, those Work Groups could be drawn back to each other for further progress in studies and teachings related to what was considered so vital to souls and the planet at the time. The animal associations were what seemed to be the easiest and most enduring possible symbol for each group to recall, if such recall was found to be possible. For most, the recall has not been so successful, but for some, the recall is strong and the associations with the originally-assigned animal is strong, as well. Even if the recall is not strong, most of our students will know that there is a STRONG affinity to at least one animal, mythical or real, that seems absurdly strong, even if not meaningfully understood. These Work Groups are not related to our teaching, nor are they related to any system of math that we have shared. They are complete construction of those who were present at the time and we have been impressed that the recall has been as successful as it has been, even if not very effective. Some of this recall has been strong, or at least ignited, by one of the originators of the concepts at the time, who happen to be one of our channels. [freyaisis] Aha, 'not' related to this teaching after all. [Michael Entity] It would be more accurate for us to say that the information did not originate from us, but it could be said to be related, if one finds it meaningful to do so. [freyaisis] Thank you for that and the clarification, Michaels. [Upst8] What is next in the curriculum of the teachings? [Michael Entity] All expanding levels of our teaching will continue to be extensions of LEARNING HOW TO CHOOSE and CHOOSING HOW TO LEARN, and with that in mind, it could be said that "what's next" in our curriculum of teaching would be in the more specific dynamics of how not choose as a more than a simple form of navigation, but as a form of CREATION. Many of our students can grasp how one can bounce around through life and use choice as a fairly effective means of getting back on track, but much of life is still met with a passivity that allows room for Chief Features to dominate. Once the student truly grasps the magnitude of how choice exists, and can grasp the varying levels of choice that are occurring before, during, and after a lifetime, then the student can begin to grasp how choice can actually CHANGE reality before his or her very eyes, or shift positions of distaste into positions of empowerment almost immediately. Many of our "crazier" Old Soul students already grasp this, and while they do live rather eccentrically and out of synch with what is expected of those within your societies and cultures of earth currently, they truly grasp that their next moment is THEIR OWN and that everything that results from the thoughts, feelings, interpretations, and choices of that moment are THEIR OWN. There is no sense of interference to their choices beyond the calculated room made for the inherent assumptions and agreements of being physical. Otherwise, their Choice is experienced as magical, and not as a burden or regret. [freyaisis] most Wonderful [Michael Entity] We will conclude here. Good night to each of you. And if you are one of our "crazier" old souls who have been teetering toward a life of ownership of your choices, we suggest you adopt the mantra of the next few months as HELL YEAH! [Upst8] crazy [Michael Entity] That is, if you choose to do so. Good night.
