[Michael_Entity] We are here. One Moment. We have been asked to discuss the topic of Reality Shifts, or Parallels, or Nexus.
These are interchangeable terms and we do not have a preference. The concept of Parallel Universes and Shifts is not complicated, yet its implications can appear boggling to the mind of one Personality. Parallels are the creative results of the Personality. The Essence does not direct or orchestrate these variations. They are entirely Personality-based in their creations. Although Essence generates the capability to have multiple realities, it does so at the direction and feedback from Personality. Since Essence has a “higher perspective,” it is always aware of all probabilities, but the Personality, using its own tools, is granted a true sense of freedom because of the possibilities of Parallels.
“Parallels” can be defined as variations on a lifetime within the SAME SPACE, different DIMENSION or frequency, if you will. They are defined and differentiated only by the filter of the individual Personality vehicle. That is part of its inherent traits, to filter out what is “not” reality to itself. The body literally acts as a “radio” which is tuned into a very specific “band” in a wide spectrum of frequencies or dimensions. A lifetime can “spin off” as many or as little variations on that life as there were major choices, and each parallel can then “spin off” from itself as well.
Each lifetime, then, can end with several variations on its timeline. This contributes a great deal to “past life” confusions and inaccurate historical data. Your first lifetime in a body is the only lifetime that has ONE single timeline and parallel. This quickly changes, of course. For purposes of simplicity, we will confine most of tonight’s study to a single lifetime and its parallels.
A Reality Shift can consist of a MERGING or DIVERGING. In the process of a DIVERGENCE, you are creating variations on a lifetime to spin off. When you are experiencing a MERGING, you are fusing “back together” with another Parallel that has grown so similar to another that it is no longer necessary to remain “separate.” These two types are always happening when there is a Nexus, but usually there is a larger theme of one or the other at work. Currently, as most of you can guess, there is a DIVERGENCE happening.
There are three levels to each Shift. There is an INDIVIDUAL Level, a COMMUNITY Level, and a GLOBAL Level. Each year brings at least one of each.
Most fragments go through a major Individual shift around March to May. On a Community Level, this means your personal intimates and support groups, or social and family world will go through as a “whole,” spinning off variations or merging. This usually happens around June to August. Global Shifts occur around November to January and creates massive group spin offs as the collective consciousness makes choices together.
The creation of a potential Shift is done through Decisions, as differentiated from CHOICES. Decisions are the “little things” in your everyday life. Deciding to go to work or not; deciding to bathe or not; deciding to take a risk or not; take a different route home; deciding on a trip or not; etc. Every single Decision contributes to the path to a Divergence or Merging, and more specifically, each Decision leads to a pivotal CHOICE. We differentiate Decisions from Choices in that a Decision is not life altering, but a Choice is. A simple Decision may appear to lead you into a vastly different world, but within that, you will make your CHOICE. Decisions then act as branches or vines within your life that will either diminish, branch off on “their own,” or intertwine back into another at the time of Choice.
During the current Shift, it is a Global Divergence that is occurring, but within this is a massive Merging of Individual and Community Levels. A Merging is marked by things “disappearing” or “appearing” that seem then to be a natural part of the reality, but “was not there before” or “was there, and is gone”. This is most noticeable on the Individual Level and is usually dismissed as confusion. As Older Souls, it is your option to observe these phenomena or not, but it is Good Work to acknowledge them freely as this moves you into higher degrees of Essence Manifestation.
The whole concept of “creating your reality” stems from the validity of creating Parallels using the Tools of Decisions and Choices. The more consciously you make these, the more your Reality shapes itself to your ideals.
We will note here that a shift in a Parallel can change your “past,” as the “past” is as “created” as the “future.” When Parallels Merge, they then “fold in” the “different” pasts and your consciousness will then “make sense” of that as it can. Older Souls may find they have literally TWO memories or more of a personal event in the past. On a Community Level, the very same people having shared a very specific event will remember completely different scenarios, sometimes disturbingly distinctly different than each other.
There is never “bleed through” from another Parallel, unless there is a “mutual” exchange and interest. “You” in your Parallel can observe other Parallels and draw from them to a degree, but you are never imposed on or affected by a “different you.” For instance, in a parallel where a family member may die, you do not cry “here” necessarily. However, for those of you who actively observe and work with Parallels consciously, a bleed through can begin to occur and this can be quite disorienting.
We will pause now to take questions. You may begin your queue.
[nemo999] In some here now Bush wins and some Gore, but really each win in some, correct? But how do we here choose which one to put most focus on?
[Michael_Entity] “You” will be in the parallel “you” choose, no matter what. There is no confusion on that level. In the reality where Bush wins, you are there for reasons of interest that may or may not be conscious to you on an Individual Level. There is a “you” in some variations of each candidate’s winning.
Though it will not be admitted by some, we see many Personalities are “bored.” This has created a great interest in the ‘Bush reality’ as it is wrought with dramatic change and conflict. Many Older Souls are interested in that reality since they will generally be unaffected. It is always a task of the Older Soul to see the world with eyes of acceptance and love, so choosing a more challenging reality can suit that task appropriately.
[nemo999] Do we put more focus on one than another and can we do that?
[Michael_Entity] In answer to your question, yes, the “you” that is “here” on some level has a vested interest in the probabilities within the Bush Parallel, so your “focus” is there. If you were to focus on changing the momentum from a ‘Bush Reality’ to a ‘Gore Reality’, you can, but it will not happen magically, it would happen “naturally.” An assassination, impeachment, death, etc., would occur. Of course, your options within that reality may become even more limited then, as Gore would not take office in this case, only a more interesting fill-in would step up.
Understand, if you will, that when Global Shifts occur, they are based on the momentum of the previous year’s Collective Decisions and Choices. All the Decisions and Choices have been made, for the most part, and the Global Shift will reflect that path/past. Though it CAN change in an instant, it is more complicated to change a Global Consciousness.
[Barb] Good evening, Michael. Do I have any parallels where I’m a writer and if so, can you describe how I might access those parallels to bring that reality into this one?
[Michael_Entity] If a Personality can imagine it, there is a reality for it. This may need to be created or it may have already been created. In your case, you have only a few that followed that path. If you still have a longing for a creation of a certain Reality, it usually means it has not been created to a level of satisfaction yet in any Parallel. In your case, then, it would simply be a matter of making your daily Decisions reflect your wishes.
[Barb] I don’t long to create a parallel – I long to have it created in this reality. Am I understanding this as you meant it?
[Michael_Entity] “This” reality will be its own Parallel at any given moment, so that is what we meant.
To access another reality, you simply use your imagination. Imagination is more often than not distrusted as “making it up,” but there is no way around that. You are conditioned to think the Imagination is simply a creative visual, but when used specifically for some purposes, it is a viewing device. If you want to draw from another Parallel, imagine what that reality must be like and observe yourself in that context. “Watch” yourself as you live. Observe the smaller things, such as clothing, hairstyle, habits, and interests. From there, choose one or two of those simple things to mimic in “this” reality. If you find you always put your keys in a specific place in your home in the “other” parallel, begin doing that “here.” That one shift can begin to draw a line between the realities that will alter your Personality to a similar place in mind as the Personality where you are doing/having what you seek. You are not literally drawing from that Parallel, but only creating similarities that are on the similar level of Decisions in the other reality and this can then begin to move you into a similar place.
We have seen surprisingly drastic impacts from this method. Your daily, minute habits shape “who” you are in more ways than is generally noticed.
[Dewliet] If a personality on one parallel predeceases those on other parallels, does that personality proceed to the astral, or must it wait for the others to “catch up?” Is there the possibility for communication between the deceased and living personalities?
[Michael_Entity] If a Personality deceases in its Parallel, it stays contained in its Parallel and will join its Entity in that Parallel. Parallels exist up to and through the Causal. There is possibility for communication, yes, we have seen this. It is not common, but it occurs.
[Cathy] Regarding the timing of the shifts… Individual happening March-May, Community/family July/Aug and Global happening Nov/Jan. Why those times, or that time frame?
[Michael_Entity] This has not always been the case, but with the advent of the Gregorian Calendar, these time frames are generally-accepted “seasonal” changes on the earth in all locations. This relates, as well, to the passage of exploration through the “year’s” Overleaves. When exploring the Goal, the Individual occurs. When exploring the Mode, the Community Shifts. When exploring the Attitudes and CFs, the World shifts.
[Barry] Can our parallel selves have a different set of overleaves than we in this reality?
[Michael_Entity] No. There may be variations on how they are used, and the variables may change, as in Centering and CF, but otherwise, no. We are speaking of the Parallels created from within one lifetime. Parallels started independently from their own timelines may be different Soul Ages, Overleaves, etc., altogether. They are far less accessible though. For instance, in 1980-1983 we believe, after a global nuclear devastation, many of “you” in those parallels who chose to be part of that will not progress in Soul Age for many thousands of years. That is due to the need to allow those directly involved in the devastation to rehabilitate the planet enough for bodies to be viable again.
[MaryBV] Are there certain places that are more prone to reality shifts then others? For instance, we had a house in Indiana where odd things happened: a step down separating a large bedroom was there when we moved in then disappeared shortly after, and other things along these lines happened. Was it the house or were the 60’s more active with shifts?
[Michael_Entity] This type of phenomena is only a temporal anomaly, not a geographical anomaly. Individual and Community Shifts were at a very high level within that decade. These then lead to Global Shifts of varying degrees. The “60’s” had the most impact Globally, followed by the “80’s”, in your time. The 00’s will be another such time.
[KellyGirl] I am noticing great emotional disorientation as a reality I split off from in April/May is returning. How can I begin making decisions that result in the best possible current parallel, and how can I begin to ascertain what that will look like??
[Michael_Entity] It is not “returning,” it never “left” in this case. This is an example of the impact of simple, every day Decisions. That Reality might have “left” if your Decisions continued to support that path, but your Decisions are what are “returning” to a similar path.
We believe your greatest tool in this situation, in determining whether the event is what you want to experience, is to practice ACTIVE Decision-making, instead of Passive Adaptation.
From where you are currently, you can use your imagination to choose three paths ahead to ascertain. Use your imagination to determine at least 3 possibilities based on what you know at this point. By “looking ahead,” trust that you are literally seeing what lies ahead as probabilities. It is not a coincidence that you can imagine the future, it is your strength. “Follow” each variation long enough in the visualization to “see” where it leads you. That is the key in this, to allow the visuals to “come to you.” It may take a few moments, but they will come. Let them lead you. Make note of any thoughts as a result of observing the probabilities and at least once in the visual, get a good look at your face. “See” if you are happy. Whichever Parallel appears and feels the most fulfilling, then be concerned with only one thing: Your next step. To follow through with what you deem your next step may go against “you” in the moment, but remember that “you” dialogued with a future version of “you” and it is up to you to get you there, if you choose.
This should be something enough for you to consider, although we could expand on this indefinitely.
[Clavis] Hello Michael. Is it possible to physically enter a parallel universe? To disappear from this parallel and enter another parallel, even meet our parallel selves physically?
[Michael_Entity] No.. It is possible to do this within the same timeline (Future meets Past and vice versa), but we have not seen this occur inter-dimensionally. Some of your futures contain the ability to physically VIEW Parallels, but beyond that are obvious limitations.
[MoonSinger] If I make a major choice in November, wouldn’t my individual shift occur at that time, or does it wait until March-May? I thought individual shifts could happen at any time.
[Michael_Entity] When we spoke of the general time frames, we spoke of this in terms of larger quantities occurring simultaneously. In the same way that many choose to do their “spring cleaning” at that time, so do many choose to do their Individual Shifts. Otherwise, you are correct. Individual Shifts occur continually with no schedule. We remind you that that Older Souls are far less frightened of creating variations on the life, but the majority is. For many, it “feels safer” to make a major shift when, at least on an Essence Level, there is an indication that others are, too.
[Leela2] Forgive me if this is a bit off the subject, but could the 1980 nuclear devastation parallel be elaborated on? For some reason that hit me hard.
[Michael_Entity] Many fragments had been curious about the impact of Nuclear Devastation for quite some time. The excitement of that was irresistible to many, even on an Essence Level. Without intervention, what might be termed “trigger-happy baby souls,” did “push the button.” This was accidental, of course, as a threat from the Middle East threw many in the USA into a panic. Russia and the US created most of the devastation. Those who survived (and many did survive, surprisingly) shipped themselves to various islands around South America and Africa. Electronic communication between a few islands has only recently been accomplished.
We could elaborate indefinitely on this as well, but we will continue with anyone left in the queue for purposes of “time.”
[Barry] I guess we learn from our choices and experiences from both past lives and from parallel lives. I take it that the lessons from one are not any more valid or important than from the other?
[Michael_Entity] You are correct. All “lessons” are subjective. There is only the individual who determines its validity. Essence sees nothing as valueless.
We will conclude here. Good night.
