MICHAEL SPEAKS (Europe Online) – Open Floor
[Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here with you.
[gramail] To what extent can one detect a person’s essence and overleaves from the physical appearance – and to what extent are these masked by astrological, genetic and environmental influences?
[Michael Entity] Overleaves are biological and can be seen to some extent with a keen eye or moreso with a scientific eye, but not so readily as to be able to translate the Overleaves into a visual system. All variations of Overleaves are inherent in every biological creation of Essence, but only certain characteristics “rise to the surface” for use in the life. Certain codes are initiated during the formative years of a body (the first 7 years or so) and as those overleaves take hold, so can some of the biological attachments associated with the available gene pools of the time.
There are some parallels where the dna is able to produce an output of code that is synchronized with a system that is similar to, or is actually, our Overleaf System, and personality issues can be dealt with in this manner. For the most part, the visual expression of a body is limited to the 3 facets of the Body Type Overleaf, and to that extent, is the only Overleaf that can be “seen” with any accuracy. All other Overleaves would be enhancements or challenges within that structure, depending on the fragment’s use of those Overleaves in various cycles of the life with that particular body.
Overleaves in relation to Astrology: The bodytype is found at the mid heaven upon conception of the body. If one can cast a chart in the appropriate way, one would be able to see the astrological influences that helped choose the primary body type. The natal chart is a map of potentials for that particular body type, which can include a number of potential overleaf combinations, though, in most cases, this can be easily broken down to see an emphasis on some combination of Inspirational, Expressive, Action, or Assimillative Energies, using the elements as a reference.
Genetic influences do not mask overleaves, but give expression to the Overleaves over time.
Environmental influences have more to do with the fragment’s process of opportunities for learning how to choose, and how he or she chooses how to learn, more than it has any influence on the Overleaves, directly.
[merlyn] I have been feeling a great sense of fear / angst as of late, I am not sure why exactly and I am fairly sure it isn’t all coming simply from me, so I am curious, is this me picking up on a general fear that seems to be pretty pervasive in the world at the moment and if this is the case, how does one deal with it?
[Michael Entity] All fear that a fragment may feel at any time is HIS or HER fear, not the world’s. Owning the fear you feel is a step toward understanding its message to you. Fear is merely the part of you wishing to protect you, so there is something that is being interpreted in some way as a threat to you. If you feel that this is a vague fear that has something to do with the world at large, it is more than likely a fear that has to do with your sense of helplessness in the scheme of things, and your wish to protect the world from harm.
[pauli] that is contradictory to some other channeling i have read (NOTE FROM TROY: I would love for pauli to elaborate on this? thanks!)
[Michael Entity] Many of our older students carry this sense of dread, terror, and fear as an undercurrent and this is often dismissed as a sensitivity to the world’s plight of the times, or it is nobly carried around as if it is doing more good than harm by keeping the fragment awake to the vagueness of threat. In truth, it is a very personal interpretation of the world as you relate to that world. It is not THE truth, but a personal truth that is being explored.
For many of you, this undercurrent comes from two sources: one is the personal sense of helplessness against the vastness of the world, and the other is from the teetering inclination to draw upon your ancient wisdom and experience to bring a soft trust to the world in a new way. This is terror in the real sense of the word for our older students. To choose to trust the process of the world, to bring a sense of peace to your daily living, even while some parts of the world remain locked in their chaotic challenges, and to find an effective way to still contribute in a meaningful way, can be terrifying.
The first steps toward choosing trust can often feel as if one is giving up to some delusional ideal, and this brings up all levels of personal distrust that remain for the fragment to process as self-karma. Trust is based on experience, not on blind faith, or delusional ideal. The trust that you would be choosing is based on your sense of Essence having been through a vastness of experiences that have all found their peace and resolution, and knowing that every single fragment has tended to choose that path in the end. It is a choice to trust your fellow fragments in their own process of learning how to choose, and choosing how to learn.
Again, though, before one can gain the benefit of choosing trust, it will always be a good idea to look at the vague fear on a very personal level, so one can see what one is wishing to protect oneself from. The way to deal with the general anxiety brought upon by this fear is to, one, own it and let it be yours. As long as it is seen as something imposed upon you by some sensitivity or world energy, then one is missing the point and can be consumed by it. Let it be yours and then you can do whatever you wish with it. Next, allow it. Let yourself be afraid so that the message is clear about what it is you wish to be safe from. Next, discover the truth of the reality of the threat. How much is anticipation and how much is actual threat? If you are in the realm of anticipation, then you have choice, and if you have choice, you can choose to soothe your soul with some facts about the reality in which you exist now, not the one that you anticipate filled with threat. And then to choose Trust.
[butterfly syndicate] In 1995/96 I experienced a very intense phase of opening up which ultimately lead to my moving to the UK and also to a brief phase of clairvoyance. Could you please explain what exactly was going on with me at that time, and especially what or who the being was that I met in a dream and that had so much energy I could not be embraced by it for long. thank you!
[Michael Entity] It appears to us that you simply, finally, opened up to Essence. This can often spin the life into an alignment that would have been in place long before the moment of that opening. Previous to the point you recognize as so pivotal, it appears that much of your life was sought to be lived from Personality without the co-creativity of Essence. This is not uncommon.
Living the life only from Personality is not impossible and is quite often preferred in earlier soul ages, but as your soul age came into manifestation within the life, so did your Essence, so Personality blossomed into an embrace of the life in a new way.
[butterfly syndicate] But I do not know my soul age
[Michael Entity] Living completely as Essence within the Physical Plane is not possible, and there was an inclination to embrace this energy to an extent that was a bit overwhelming and daunting to the Body and Personality. As the Body and Personality adapted to the realignment, life returned to “normal,” but with a new possibility and a reference point for the feeling you may call upon again when the presence of Essence is wanted to be felt more directly. It is not that your Essence is not with you at all times, but Personality can tend to block the energy that would be felt as Essence. You do not have to know your Soul Age to grow in Soul Age. Many are growing and evolving on your planet who will never know this system.
[gramail] Thanks! Can you make one suggestion for how I can improve the quality of my life over the next week?
[Michael Entity] There are many suggestions we could give and to choose one is arbitrary, but what we can do is encourage you to complement this suggestion with your own observations and self-knowledge. In fact, that is the crux of our suggestion as we can see it for your energy over the next week: to embrace your self-knowledge as a resource, not as an invitation to debate. In the week ahead, it may come of great use to remind yourself that “there is no need to defend myself.” This will allow room for your standing in your self-knowledge, instead of standing alongside it as protector.
The sense of alignment inside as your feel the confidence of your perceptions, and merely express them or keep them to yourself as personal knowledge, may be a key for a pleasant experience in the week ahead.
Good evening to all of you. We will close here. Goodbye.
