ENERGY REPORT

SEPTEMBER 2021
 

Martyrdom is all about fearing the loss of control of one’s space, which includes one’s body, autonomy, mobility, freedom, resources, environment, etc. 

As our students may have already assessed, the world is in a prime position to explore this loss of control. At the moment, we cannot see if this exploration leads toward panic and overreaction or toward assessment and heightened responsibility.

 

This shift is one that moves individuals and populations out of positions of passive power where there is hope that someone else will save the day and into positions of active power where there is confidence in all of you who will save the day.

The two major shifts that we have seen building among individuals and populations are:
 

ONE: a shift away from dependence on government as something that can exist separately from its population. .

TWO: a shift away from egoism and a move toward altruism. 

 

In short, being actively involved as a part of your own government to the extent that you can and taking an altruistic approach in your choices and actions are the primary sources of empowerment over the next 30 years or so as the world changes. 

 

SEPTEMBER 11th - 14th: ENERGY SHIFT - REFRAMING TRAUMA - This shift appears to bring with it a way to see and accept trauma of the past, without having to understand or make sense of it. Trauma is not something that can be “let go” or even forgotten to any meaningful extent, but it can be something that is intimately and personally allowed and carried with as much compassion as possible, which is the closest thing to truly healing the effects of trauma.

Martyrdom and reframing trauma... Canada's public health authorities just released their models for "The Fourth Wave" this week.  They've reason to be afraid that over September / October, Delta's going to cause a wave worse than anything Canada has seen from the pandemic so far.

 

Egoism --> Altruism and government's degree of separation from the population... OF COURSE Canada's having a federal election on Sept 20th 🤦‍♀️ It's shaping up to be a tight race between two opposing political parties that seem to mirror this shift in a lot of ways.  It's also been the ugliest election campaign of my lifetime by a long shot.

The most significant shift is likely to come toward the end of September as the Chief Feature of the year, Martyrdom begins being emphasized. We will explore the subject of Martyrdom in more detail in the months ahead, but we will point out now that this Chief Feature is all about fearing the loss of control of one’s space, which includes one’s body, autonomy, mobility, freedom, resources, environment, etc.

It is just this one was like a 2x4 to the face in how obviously it fits.

 

What Christian said. With the law that went into effect in Texas this last week, with the loonies eating horse paste because they don't want to take a vaccine ... Fear of loss of control is hitting nearly everyone - has been for a while, but it's getting much stronger.

Dear fucking sweet baby Jesus did this just nail the US squarely in its sights.

IN WHAT WAYS DO I/CAN I PRACTICE ALTRUISM - Rather than provide a clever phrase or insight, we would suggest that this thought be posed to the community as a discussion and allow each other to 1. Celebrate ways that altruism may already be a part of the life, and 2. Explore ideas for how altruism can be even more prominent in the life.

 

altruism

1. unselfish concern for the welfare of others;

2.Ethics the doctrine that the welfare of society is the proper goal of an individual's actions ; opposed to Egoism.

 

Thank You Michael & Troy

 

This shift is one that moves individuals and populations out of positions of passive power where there is hope that someone else will save the day and into positions of active power where there is confidence in all of you who will save the day.

Pity Fox News can't start telling their audience “Human” Ivermectin is now injectable! You can choose Pfizermectin or Ivermoderna."

PS - "Loonies" are also what we Canadians call our $1 coins, so thanks for the laugh (mental picture of a pandemic commemorative one )

Whereas I have been very pessimistic about the future of humanity because of climate change, this recent video has eased my unease a little bit. Things are beginning to turn around in terms of the technology needed to minimize carbon release, because key people are realizing that it is financially expedient, profitable even, to save the planet. Rather than focus only on the pessimistic data about the current dismal situation, this guy extracts the optimistic data from the recent IPCC report that discuss positive trends in the works, trends that will accelerate as the cost of green energy and green living falls. Perhaps there will not be quite as much suffering and death as I imagined.

Even in the best efforts for democracy, the distance between the people and government creates a system that is governed by an oligarchy. True democracy is the only way forward for civilizations to survive and thrive.

 

Did Michael ever explain how they would define "true democracy"?

I'm sorry, it is so incredibly frustrating to me how Iverm*ctin has become so politicized. It is a drug humans take: they've been taking it in South America to treat/prevent parasitic worms in humans for years. Yes, horses also take it. Dogs also take Zyrtec. Does that mean humans shouldn't take Zyrtec for allergies? It's ridiculous how polarized this has gotten: it's a medication.

 

Is there a ton of evidence it helps with Covid? No. Is there enough evidence that we should hold a double-blind randomized trial to truly see if it helps mitigate some of the symptoms? Yes. Does that mean people can replace getting a vaccine with taking Ivermectin? No. The question is "can it be an effective treatment for people currently in the hospital," not "can it stop you from getting Covid."

 

Sorry for the rant, I just. Am so fucking frustrated with the way this has been co-opted for political gain, on both sides. And I usually hate that "both sides" argument, because usually the right is the more harmful, but in this case, it's just gotten so overblown. When the conversation about Ivermectin started, it was based on a few studies, and it was about asking for a bigger trial. Now it's just devolved into nonsense.

 

EDIT: Lol, now that that's out of my system, editing to add thank you Troy, for channeling this energy report, as always. XD

from what i have seen there are 3 questions being asked about it, effectiveness in preventing death, effectiveness in various phases of treatment, and in prevention; these three seem to get conflated fairly often in claims about effectiveness.

 

one of the common things with all known anti-viral drugs is they tend to need to be given/used early to be effective.

 

part if the issue that i have heard raised is that the emergency use authorization for the vaccines requires no other effective treatment, and if a generic drug is effective in prevention then the vaccines would need to go through the full process which can take up to 5+ years to do all the studies (infertility studies usually take between 1 and 4 years from what i have heard).

no.

 

There is 0 evidence that ivermectin does anything for covid.

 

What happened was, in the heady early days of covid in the early days of 2020, a poorly researched "study" was published stating that ivermectin might do something with covid.

 

That study was retracted this summer because a medical student actually read it and looked at the data and realized that the data was faked.

 

The medical community caught it AFTER the media got a hold of it and turned it into a thing.

 

The problem with the ivermectin in this pandemic is that Fox, newsmax, oann, daily wire, etc KEEP PUSHING IT.  And since it is readily available at farm supply stores, people are dosing themselves and predictably disastrous results.

 

Ivermectin has no effect on covid.  Full. Fucking. Stop.

I don't know if Michael has or not.

 

My thinking is with the emphasis on activity in government it would be something akin to anarchy.

 

I see it as government that starts at the local level. Like down to the neighborhood level.  Where we make decisions on how out neighborhood works.

 

Then keeps spiraling up to the national and international level.

 

Local people making decisions locally about everything.

 

It would be a radical democracy.  Votes on everything. No backroom political deals everything out in open.

True, though there were also other small trials and pilot studies. Most of them were not retracted, though they also had serious limitations that made their results highly suspect.  There are, in fact, larger, randomized, double blind studies underway globally into Ivermectin and other drugs that might be repurposed for use in treating COVID.  Early results are reportedly not looking good for Ivermectin, but they haven't been officially released yet as far as I know.  There's not much reason to expect it to be useful at the moment, in any case.

@Nadine this is from a Michael Speaks on June 8, 2008.

 

QUESTION: I have recently been involved in discussions with a few of my friends regarding political and governmental systems regarding which are the most effective. My friends would gladly describe themselves as “libertarian” whereas I cannot completely proscribe to such an ideology, if only because their description of “libertarianism” seems to give too much authority to the private sector and private interests; of which I am not entirely comfortable. They would likely label me as “socialist” or as “bleeding heart liberal” if they didn't know me better! I guess the questions are: Is there or are there ideal governmental system(s) or ideology for the current average soul age we are in currently, based on what Michael has perceived from other sentient beings? What do these systems look like? Perhaps what the United States and the rest of the world is currently experiencing in their governments are pretty typical for our current soul age development? That would be my perception at least. Also, what do typical governments look like on worlds that have a majority of old souls? Or do they even have governments?

 

Michael Entity:  The politics of any given region or period of time usually describe the friction between the approaching paradigm and the current paradigm, each respectively defined by the approaching dominant Soul Age and the current dominant Soul Age. Many of the names assigned to the varying "parties" are tedious and unnecessary, so we will speak in broader terms here.

 

NOTE FROM TROY: Some editing was done from the original text as I asked Michael for clarifications and questioned a couple of the original details. Also, the true definitions and delineations for all of the political/governmental systems can really get complicated, so Michael's response seems to be exactly what they've said, a "broader" perspective, at best. They did explain to me that there are really only three political systems, but a multitude of systems within those systems.

 

Michael Entity:  It could be said that the following political systems are associated in this way:

 

Infant Souls have no politics or order, and are therefore at the mercy of whatever dominant political system is in place at the time. However, they may be most comfortable with Dictatorship, which would be implemented by Baby Souls.

 

The Baby/Young politics have shown up as Dictatorship, Capitalism, and Socialism.

 

The Young/Mature politics have shown up as Monarchy, Republic, Socialism, and Communism.

 

The Mature/Old politics have shown up as Monarchy, Democracy, and Anarchy.

 

Old Soul politics return to a state of no politics, but more of what might be considered Anarchy. We use the word "anarchy" in its true definition, not as the Young or Mature soul might exploit the term. The anarchy usually takes on a form that would be recognized as Tribalism.

 

In response to your questions:

 

We would say that the politics of your current world are exactly indicative of the shifts from the dominant paradigm/soul age to another.

 

From what we can see of other populations dominated by Old Soul Ages and paradigms, there are no governments that you would recognize beyond being more tribal groups in communication and exchange with one another, but with no discernible leader or authority.

 

This is one of the reasons our teaching is particularly attractive to the older soul, since there is no discernible authority beyond the self, and even the sense of self is held in question to a degree that allows for sensitive consideration of all factors involved in the life.

 

An Old Soul world is similar.

 

QUESTION:  I realize my background in government is obviously lacking when I ask this question, but: Is there any distinguishable difference between a democracy and a republic according to Michael's perception? By including both, it seems to be implied that there is a difference.

 

Michael Entity:  We differentiate a Republic from a Democracy in that a Republic has a more specifically-defined body of qualified voters or elected representatives, while a Democracy seeks to include all people, even those who might not be obviously qualified. The concept of Democracy can get confusing in some cultures such as in the United States because several forms of government are in place. Rather than a pure Democracy, the United States is far more accurately described as a Republic, which is a form of Democracy, but not true Democracy. In addition to this, the general promotion of Democracy is run from an Authoritarian perspective, or as a Plutocracy, to be specific. It could be said that the Physical economy of the United States is run by Plutocratic (authoritarian) politics, while the Emotional economy is run by Republican (Democratic) methods, and this is to be considered when looking at politics. There are Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, and Spiritual levels of Politics and Economy to consider in any system.

 

The closest to an old soul political system that exists in your world today is what is experienced as "the Internet."

 

QUESTION:  How are the Internet and politics related?

 

Michael Entity:  If "politics" is seen as a term to describe how a body of people govern themselves and resolve apparent conflicts, then the Internet could be seen as a system of politics. In this case, as would be the case for the Old Soul world, COMMUNICATION would be at the core of those politics, or the INTELLECT as economy.

 

The Infant Soul uses Freedom; the Baby Soul uses Authority; the Young Soul uses Capital; the Mature Soul uses Well-Being; and the Old Soul uses Communication at the root of their politics.

 

The "ultimate" political system, in the end, will have to utilize all of these factors to govern a mix of soul ages. Hence, the politics of a Democracy or a Republic will include previous political emphases to some degree, but with the more current politics being the emphasis.

 

QUESTION:  And so, just as we are doing here in this chat, everyone determines for themselves, and then relates to the outside world through communication. but as an autonomous being similarly engaged with other autonomous beings/people? Something like this?

 

Michael Entity:   We think we have understood your question and we would agree. It could be said then that the politics of the Old Soul are CONTEXTUAL. Certain politics apply within specific instances, but are not seen as appropriate across the board. And each person determines his or her level of compliance within certain contexts, or freely moves to more appropriate contexts.

 

We realize this is far from being deeply explored, but we will move on now.

Bodily autonomy and anti vaxxers. That stood out to me. I have unfriended in the past hour, anyone who is anti vax or anti covid or pro conspiracy theory. These people condone manslaughter with their disinformation and ignorance. These people are not getting any oxygen if I can help it. Great energy report, I can see this playing out on many levels. Wading through golden syrup (treacle), this year. One foot in front of the other. Work. Eat. Sleep. Rinse, repeat. One question that I know isn't rhetorical, but cannot either be answered (within a specific timeframe), is how long until we see some constructive evidence based forward momentum (that overcomes the pro libertarian drag of the young soul population still benefiting from exploiting the 99%),  for the newly minted mature souls? (besides good public health messages, pro vaccination messages, eat vegan messages)? Its a bit of a marathon, this bs.

I had a dream last night. In it, @DianeHB and @TexB looked like middle aged women who were fondly and gently contradicting and instructing Barack Obama (who had bobbed shoulder length hair and who was laughing in sympathy at Diane and Tex's firm, loving yet kind of discipline and humour position advice) was nodding his head. Barack was receiving advice from Diane and Tex as to how to better "run the world", and his suggestions were being partially run with, and mostly corrected, by Diane and Tex. Look I was just there I don't know what this is about, but DianeHB and Tex you were making Barack and myself laugh (in sympathy). The vibe was kind of like innocence meeting a cheerful cynicism, not unlike Miracle Max (DianeHB) and Valerie (Tex) from the Princess Bride, with Obama as a kind of Dread Pirate Roberts.

Yes, there were several, and at least three of the trials seemed promising at first -- though all three were small, from what I remember, all three acknowledged that the smallness of the study was a mitigating factor in claiming anything definitive.

 

My frustration is personal. I know someone who was exploring its possible benefits back before we had any vaccines and were desperate for a treatment. They're incredibly kind and intelligent, and they wanted to help in whatever way they could. There was evidence in their small study that the drug might help, but they were adamant within their study that though it seemed there might be benefits, nothing could be certain or definite until a larger trial tested its effectiveness.

 

I have no opinion on the drug itself. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work. But because of the politicization of this drug, and any study related to it now, my friend's name and career is at risk, solely because they participated in a small study to test its effectiveness.

 

Not everyone pushing Iverm*ctin has the world's best interests at heart. But the narrative being pushed is that any doctor involved in any study claiming the druf could have benefits is a quack -- and I'm sorry, but I find that ridiculous, and sad, and I'm angry that my friend has been put in this position.

both groups are making a "my body, my choice" argument, and both are facing groups that are making claims about impacts of that choice and trying to enforce what they see as the correct choice on others.

The problematic pattern that i am seeing is a combination of things like bullying, shaming, ostracisation and general negativity; that is combination that we have seen some individuals explode under and reflect the negativity and pain back into the community and world under. When this has happened, so far it looks like the community(s) that behaved that way to cause the problem have not looked in the mirror and instead pointed fingers every other direction including to the individual who exploded.

Yes to everything you say. And that last is a good point, but I don't know how relevant it is at the moment -- Pfizer is now FDA-approved, after all, beyond emergency use. I would think if ivermectin were effective enough to prevent emergency-use authorization of a vaccine, we would've seen that effectiveness proven by now, what with half of Central America and apparently all of the American Midwest taking it.

 

But who knows. I just hate the way we're talking about it. I mean, "don't take this drug because we give it to horses" is a silly argument. We give a lot of drugs to animals that humans also take -- and it's kind of lowkey racist when it's a drug that's been in use for years to treat parasitic worms in Central and South America.

 

"Don't take this drug because it has a very tangible effect on your immune system, and we have no idea if that effect is beneficial or harmful to your Covid immune response. You shouldn't be taking that risk until we know for sure" is a great argument. That's an actual medical argument, and the argument the FDA should be using.

 

Anyway. I'm sorry for co-opting this energy report to rant about this, guys. I had a visceral negative reaction to that quip because I know someone who's personally tangled up in all this. It hurts to see them bullied in real life for it, and it hurts see this cultural conversation become so childish.
