[M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
We will begin with an Energy Report as we see it for the weeks from January 27th through February 9.
We will mention briefly that the date of January 26th may have some astrological significance to consider. We are not astrologers, but we do have students and channels who are, so we are aware that the 26th is pivotal on some level. That particular day is also the first minor energy shift of the year. This particular shift is specific to late Mature and Older Souls, which is unusual in that specificity. The reason it can be specific is because of its subtlety that would escape most people, let alone younger souls. There seems to be an energy “brewing” among the older souls to experience a moment of what can be described as “awe.”
This is something all older souls are seeking as some form of inspiration for change. Many older souls are losing interest in the “magic” of being physical at this time, but also feel compelled to remain and participate. It is not unusual for Older Souls to call out for a “sign” of some sort to reinvigorate their sense of purpose and progress and meaning within the context of physical existence. This subtle “calling out” has been “heard” and will most likely not remain an individual event, but something meaningful for a great number of older souls.
The 26th is the day of the shift, though we are, of course, not clear as to how or when a manifestation would occur, but we do believe it would be within February. This is not a prediction, we remind you. It is merely a comment on the momentum that appears to be building in the collective consciousness of a specific group of Essences extant on the physical plane.
The general “mood” of the next couple of weeks seems to be gentle, encouraging, and subtle for most. We do not see any major events at this time, tonight. We see most fragments finding small, but meaningful pieces of information, exchange, interaction, that is generally inspiring and encouraging.
We can suggest for the next two weeks for you to take a few days or moments to do what revitalizes you. Take a long bath, meditate, find some time for your “spirit,” read what you have been putting off, etc. It is an excellent time that is supportive of informing yourself about the world around you and what you can do to participate and contribute.
Each of you seem to be moving into a phase wherein you have the opportunity for creating or accessing Agreements local to you that have to do with community and change. Watch for insights or impulses about that area of exploration. It is a time to relax in personal space, as well, so if you feel the urge, try not to ignore what your body or psyche wants as an experience of peace and nurturing from you.
We will now take your questions about the Topic of Current Events and Media, if you have any. You may begin your queue.
[nemo-sam] What is the probability of Israel being destroyed in the next two years?
[M_Entity] In what way are you defining “destroyed”?
[nemo-sam] A large part of its population killed or nuclear bombs being used on it.
[M_Entity] The probability is actually quite low, at 17% at this time. There is too much interest in that area as a means of intense Young and Mature Soul experiences. Most Essences see more potential in remaining in a tedious destructive path, rather than a “wiping out” and “starting over.”
[nemo-sam] Ok, I was thinking of a showdown coming.
[M_Entity] What you may begin to see, instead, over the next two years, is a profound new method and interest in communication between conflicting parties. This year has great potential for generating a foundation of peace, if the Pragmatism can sustain itself in Practicality, and not submit to Dogma. Next year’s Role is already being generated as a SAGE year, so we see a great deal of interest among all souls to find means of communication that will enlighten, entertain, and educate within the following year or so. This is not to say that Israel will not have disastrous bouts of violence, but we believe the interest is just not there for total destruction.
[Marion324] When the election took place I noticed an immediate change in the tone of the media, newspapers, magazines and so forth. It seemed the tone immediately became more negative and bemoaning economic downturn for example as well as all the threats in the world. Was this doe to shift in parallels or due to media being very tied to who is in power in government? Or am I imagining the whole thing….
[M_Entity] With certain people in power comes certain Karma. The fragment known as George Bush, Jr. certainly has a great deal of public Karma to work out. This kind of Karma is not limited to the personal and public, but those in political power also play out the collective psyches of those they represent.
In the same way that Film and Cinema reflects the fears and hopes and general psyche of a population, so too does a representative politician. Attached to Bush is a large lesson in public humility and the overcoming of “larger than life” obstacles. In his case, “Evil,” or “Satan” represents this. This fragment sees the world in terms of a fight between Good and Evil. The original meaning of the concept of “Satan” was literally any kind of obstacle, but current religion has personified it and the current “war” this fragment “leads” is against his “Satan”. In the end, this Essence seeks to experience the public humility, while also grasping newer concepts of what it means to succeed and be victorious. Along the way, there will be much bumbling.
The collective conscious of the United States, of course, jumped into the “game” and the media ran with these concepts of Good and Evil as a means to rally all together. Although this is rooted in Baby Soul concepts, the irony is the general moving of everyone into Mature Soul connection and empathy.
It is not your imagination that a darker spin has been on the media. It is simply part of the dramatic, transitional background of a Mature Soul world.
[ClaireN] The news media in the US is extremely narrow and biased. Would Michael please address this and suggest a reliable source?
[M_Entity] We believe there is too much undue emphasis given to the possibility that your media is “biased” and “narrow.” A more accurate perception, from our point of view, is that it is “innocent” and “slow.”
We have rarely seen your media “hide” anything for long, or distort it for long, or manipulate it, etc. The truth does get out, even if not in the first few reports. We believe it is helpful to “follow” the news as it unfolds and remind yourselves that the people collaborating in reporting are humans involved in their own lives, fears, and agendas as you are.
In general, Local News is fairly accurate over a shorter period of time. News Shows, such as 60 Minutes and Dateline can be more concerned with presentation than with the truth, but a great deal of truth is there, even if cloaked.
Publicly funded radio is fairly accurate in reporting, but we have found this area of news to be severely subjective, which has its pros and cons. This is not to say it is inaccurate or untruthful, but there is far more potential for want of a specific point to get across, rather than the truth. Public Radio will vary from reporter to reporter and show to show. You must validate for yourselves with whom you relate.
We described the news as Innocent and Slow because it is. There is no real agenda of narrowness or bias, as we have said, but it is fair to say there are far too many considerations clouding the reporting which are distracting. This distraction slows the news, but it does get through. We say it is Innocent because most who are caught up in the world of reporting have a hard time seeing past the structures currently in place.
And finally, we have found that News from the North and East of the United States tends to be the most immediately concerned with accuracy and correction.
[ClaireN] I was concerned by the lack of world news, especially when it does not affect us directly.
[M_Entity] ALL news is only reported in terms of how it affects the general area reporting. This is true in all countries. It is not unique to the United States’ reporting methods.
To access what is happening in the world, we can suggest the Internet as an invaluable resource of accuracy and immediacy. There are “streams” of media from other countries, as well as “local” newspapers in English from other countries. There is a tremendous resource of alternative news sources inherent in what is called the World Wide Web. This takes up the slack where your local television or radio cannot fulfill.
As for those media, we can suggest BBC World News is accurate enough and accessible on the radio and cable, while the network called ABC tends to have World News presented accurately on broadcast television. Does this help clarify?
[ClaireN] Thank you, Michael. I will have to get a PC for the bathroom….a joke…
[M_Entity] We understand the humor in that statement. We, ourselves, are without such luxuries.
[ClaireN] Humor or bathrooms?
[M_Entity] And that was our humor. We will conclude here. Goodnight.
