MICHAEL SPEAKS – Open Floor
[Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
[Question] hello Michael I am curious as to places which project more powerful vibrations, any suggestions?
[Michael Entity] In terms of “projecting more powerful vibrations,” we would have to say that there are various ways of responding to that question: there are “powerful vibrations” geographically that are relative to Sentience, relative to Cadres (and Entities), relative to Essence, and relative to Personality. The experience of a “powerful vibration” is contextual and based in resonance, more than what is being emitted from a specific location. If one is looking for an experience of a “powerful vibration,” it would depend upon which level of resonance one is seeking, such as resonance to Essence, Personality, Cadre, or Sentience? For most, the experience is most tangible when on the level of Personality, but most “powerful” on the level of Essence. By this we mean that within a lifetime, you will go where your Personality chooses to go, regardless of any history beyond this life, and this resonance is tangible: you either hate where you live or love where you live; however, when looking beyond the obvious draw of Personality, there are places that resonate to Essence and this is “powerful,” in that it triggers a vibrational harmony among all lifetimes relative to that particular area (or similar area) that Essence has experienced. Both of these levels of resonance would be determined on an individual basis and not something that could be said for any of you as a group, but we will say that much of what resonates on an Essence Level is closely related to the level of your Cadre, as many of your lifetimes are created in clusters together, geographically.
In your case, it appears your Cadre could be said to find “powerful vibrations” emitting from such geographical locations in certain areas of what are known as “The United States,” particularly in the “midwest” and “north-east” and “north-west;” Greece, Egypt, and Western Asia, but we are speaking in a highly-generalized way here.
This is a subject that could be explored even further in detail from the levels of what could be called “True Home” as this relates to resonance on Personality and Essence Levels, to the resonance on Cadre and Sentient levels, which then begins to include other star systems.
[Question] Hello, Michael, thank you. I read an amazing book that tied your teachings of Roles, etc. into astrological charts. Great detail was gone into using the Nodes, Saturn etc. and how they reflect the CF’s and much more. This work has been an inspiration for me and I wondered if there will be more work on using astrological systems with the Michael Teachings coming to us? Also, do you have any comments on using astrology within this context? Book was by Gina Lake..
[Michael Entity] Any system beyond our own can often be used for “dove-tailing” and cross-references, but we would always encourage caution in trying to superimpose systems upon one another. Though there are connections among all valid teachings, they are still completely different systems.
In terms of Astrology, we find little resonance to our teaching beyond a certain degree of overlap regarding the unfolding the life. For the most part, Astrology can dove-tail quite smoothly with the explorations of Karma and Self-Karma, which would include the exploration of the Nodes and in particular, Transits across the Natal Chart.
When we say that we find “little resonance,” we will clarify here that even that little bit is quite a wide array and can be used as a valid overlapping. Natal Charts in Astrology speak of the potential of Personality, as does the Overleaf system, but the Overleaves as we describe them cannot accurately be superimposed over the planets and houses to any consistent or meaningful degree. To simplify what we mean here is to point out the trying to find a consistent way of overlapping a system of 7 with a system of 12; it is not impossible to find correlations, but only if explored loosely. If the Natal Chart is used alongside the Overleaf system as two different ways of looking at the same picture, then much is gained, but to superimpose them together would cause loss of validity and effectivenees in both areas. As mentioned previously, we find the exploration of the transits to be the most meaningful dove-tailing with our teaching, as we have not shared to any great degree our system for mapping your karma, yet, but it is closely aligned with what is considered “astrology.”
The only valid astrological correlation that is directly linked to our Overleaf system is the Body Type, which is found at the midheaven at the moment of conception (not birth). Casting a Natal chart as relative to conception would give rise to a great deal of insight into the health, well-being, and maintenance of the Body. We do, however, realize that the moment of conception is not an easy detail to validate, but some amount of accuracy can be utilized by retro-fitting your Natal chart to accurately show the corresponding planet that relates to what you’ve deducted as your Primary Body Type as it’s corresponding planet sits at the mid-heaven.
To summarize a bit here, we would say that Astrology is most aligned with our teaching when exploring the DEVELOPMENTAL aspects of a lifetime, such as Internal Monads, Karma, Self-Karma, but also in areas relative to any part of our teaching couched in a system of 12, such as the Circle of Support. For instance, comprehending the indications of your North and South Nodes can help bring about a deep awareness of your Karmic patterns, internally and externally. Watching the transits of planets across the houses can give an indication of what Karma is being emphasized at any given time. Observing the clusters of planets throughout the Natal chart can give great clues to how you utilize your Support Group. These are simplified examples.
Again, this is a subject worth exploring further, but we believe this will be a fair amount of food for thought, so to speak, for now.
[Response] I will be excited to see the system for mapping our karma! Thank you so much for the insights. The correlating of numbers 7 and 12 makes a lot of sense. Thank you.
[Question] Hello, Michael. I have a question about Support Circles. Since I’ve rarely had more than 6 people in my life since leaving my parents’ house, is it possible to have Support Circle members serially? i.e., not all 12 at one single simultaneous time? Many individuals I’ve known over a lifetime are long ago and far away, and/or have crossed over. In short, what happens when it’s quite obvious that one doesn’t have anywhere close to 12 people in their life and rarely has? Oddly enough, connecting to the previous comment – my natal chart doesn’t have half of the houses — it’s a very lop-sided chart.
[Michael Entity] Regardless of conscious or physical proximity to a Support Circle, it still exists and affects a life and personality, no matter how consciously or unconsciously it is resisted. When we say that it “affects a life,” we do not mean that the energy is imposed upon you, but that it is an inherent network among all of you. You would not exist, otherwise, neither physically or as energy. Support is vital and “built-in” to the universe. How one utilizes a Support Group within any given lifetime is a completely different angle from which to explore the subject.
Consider how often your hand is “aware” of the back of your ankle; or how often your torso makes the conscious connection between itself and the soles of your feet. Support Groups can be similar in that conscious use and contact is only a part of the possibilities, but the feet, torso, ankles, head, etc. are still a group; a sort of support group that is connected with or without conscious direction or conscious awareness of the benefit being reaped.
We encourage conscious awareness only to the extent that one is interested in alleviating the tiring and exhausting position of pretending that she or he is an island among familiar souls.
Even when resisted or when difficult to [be] validated, your Support Circle is in effect on some level, and even when the fragments who could play the positions are ignored or rejected, there will still be the POSITIONS that can be filled by any passing soul (or event, for that matter). For instance, the primary source of intimacy in a life: the Love, Knowledge, and Compassion Positions can be and will be filled in some way, some how, by even the most fleeting of connections. In other words, there will ALWAYS be someone toward which you explore love, or receive love; there will ALWAYS be someone toward which you share knowledge, or receive knowledge; there will ALWAYS be someone toward which you show compassion, or receive compassion. The same can be said of the other Support Positions.
They are not always obvious, and they are not always needed on such an obvious level, but when they are necessary, they are filled, even if by a passing stranger who smiles at you, or a tv show that makes you laugh, etc.
For a fragment who might be stranded on an island and literally isolated from all contact with other humans, this fragment is still supported, though to a greatly-compromised degree, but supported, nonetheless, from energetic levels that might not be as obvious on the surface.
Keep in mind that it is not unusual to have certain areas of the Support Circle dampened precisely as a means of provoking exploration in those areas. For instance, if someone were to see that her Discipline Position were not obvious and not showing up very effectively, it could easily be that this fragment is learning to define a new level of what Discipline means, and the lack of an obvious external support is provoking this exploration so as to better utilize it for a new Soul Level or Age.
Support is a circuit and there is a big difference between Support and Dependency. For some fragments who have come to depend on the Support in a way that has begun to compromise responsibility, Support can show up as remaining out of sight so that the fragment can bring back a consciousness to the circuit.
[Question] All choices are valid, but does it make sense to try to make more ‘progressive’ choices, and how does one identify such choices if it does?
[Michael Entity] We would ask that you define “progressive.”
[Response] that furthers ones progress, development…
[Michael Entity] We have yet to see a choice that does not already do this. There are no choices that regress a personality or essence, but is always “progressive” to some degree and development.
The only thing that can bring about an acceleration, however, is a bringing of consciousness/awareness to the process and ultimately this can only be done through Essence Recognition. For every moment of Essence Recognition (within a life or outside of it), evolution occurs, meaning that all that has come to pass is then organized into a pattern that adds to the development of the soul.
Essence Recognition is the conscious awareness that expands beyond the limitations of logic, perception, and body to include the truth, love, and energy that exists beyond those limitations.
So in answer to your question, we can say that ALL choice is progressive and furthers you, but those choices and experiences are “stored,” so to speak, until those moments of Essence Recognition that then puts all of it into the broader contexts of existence.
Essence Recognition is often saved for between the lives when the physical life is not such a distraction, hence the afterlife often being referred to as “review,” since this is actually the Essence Recognition process, but all of you are capable of this during a lifetime, as well.
For those who wish to practice Essence Recognition, one merely needs to actively choose to rise above the level of REACTION as a first step, and actively choose an encompassing view of oneself in relation to the lifetime, making that same choice when regarding others, as well. We do not say, nor do we imply, that one ignore the very human reactions of life, for those are a part of the point of being where you are, but we do say that when one feels inclined, one can choose to suddenly grasp the validity of one’s SOUL as part of the experience. In other words, once one has learned to rise beyond Reaction, then one can bring Essence into the experience, grasping even on the most vague of levels that the life is beautiful, a creation, and that even the most repulsive of people around you are also very real beyond what can be seen, being just as beautiful, just as creative and “perfect” for the experience.
As one can imagine, this rise above reaction can be very difficult while IN the lifetime, holding out for that recognition until the bodies and personalities are out of the way. But if one is interested in accelerating, then this would be what we suggest: Essence Recognition; the conscious awareness of the truth, love, and beauty of oneself, ones life, and those involved. The way one can identify if one has experienced Essence Recognition is when one feels utterly safe, unthreatened, and though there may be a lack of logic and detail to an experience, somehow one “gets it,” and trusts the process.
[Question] I have 2 questions now. I have been curious about the energies of the area that I have moved to. The answers to the first question give me much to think about so….what would be the star system that relates to the Manitou Springs area, (upper southwest area of the USA, at the base of the Pikes Peak region.) Lots of artisans, musicians, hippies here.
[Michael Entity] We would not say that a star system relates to particular geographical areas beyond temporary connections made by those extant at a given time. When we said that star systems were involved as resonant places, we meant this literally and in relation to Cadres and Entities as they began initial lifetimes in those star systems.
In terms of the area you describe, it could be said to be primarily an Emotional Vortex, in that it houses several patterns of energy related to Inspiration, manifested in ways that range from the extremes of water-based weather to the balance of the Intellect through minerals and mountains. Another way of putting it might be that this area is Emotionally-Centered, Intellectual Part. The resonance here for many is based on an Essence Level. Beyond this, the broader region is Higher Moving in its effect, bringing to Personalities who need it, a resonance and awareness to the Beauty, Energy, and Patterns of the life. Regardless of Role, it could be said that the area attracts those who wish to rejuvenate their relationship to Inspiration through the process of grasping Patterns, Beauty in the life. Most who come to the area are rising out the ashes of chaos, seeking solace in some kind of peaceful order again.
[Question] would entity 7, cadre one…be from the Pleiades then?
[Michael Entity] : Many from your Cadre (and Energy Ring) are familiar with the various species that could be considered a part of the “Pleiades,” but this was not a home for you. Most who began off-planet would call the system related to “Sirius” to be home, but it would not surprise us if there are connections drawn to Cassiopeia and Pleiades, as these were strongly related to your reasons for moving to Earth in the first place. The “Pleiadians” would have preferred for your species to have simply been destroyed and your transport to a safe planet “out of the way” was the only alternative to your extinction. Pleiadians now, bitterly, work on repairing the Karma incurred from that interference.
Many from Cassiopeia who were part of what would be akin to an animal rights network were responsible for protecting you and transporting you, though we will add here that several other systems were involved in that process. The network that saved your species is represented by several minorities across several systems and species, but Pleiadians were a primary force of interruption to your development within your native star system. Those who are strongly drawn to those labeled as “Pleiadians” are part of the healing between the species and probably find this information to be surprising, as the draw of the Karmic Ribbons are inherently laced with fascination and intrigue.
[Question] when you say, species, do you mean, “humanoid?”
[Michael Entity] Most are humanoid, yes. Many are not. The most familiar to you would be those labeled as “big foot,” (the primary race responsible for saving your species) and, of course, the large-headed, small-bodied, big-eyed typical “alien” that ranges from terrifying to fascinating, all of which would be humanoid.
[Question] Thank you Michael. 2 of your channels mentioned about feeling something ominous might happen this year when they were channeling the year’s energy report. 1 of the other channels said that there would be a mass exodus from the physical plane in March of this year. Are you able to give us any more possible details of this ominous feeling they had and could it be tied into the mass exodus in March, and would this give Bush the reason to put into play the Directive 53? Gosh… I hope I got that right. ;-)
[Michael Entity] Our channels are exposed to our process of exploring probabilities when looking at your year ahead and when those probabilities are higher for something uncomfortable, it can feel ominous, even impending. We cannot predict for you when or what will happen, but we can say that there is a rather high probability of 3 disasters or catastrophes that could easily lead to mass exits (3000 or more fragments) from the physical plane, providing just the opportunity needed for those who wish to extend power in politics.
When we say that the probability is high, it is above what might be described as 25% probability, which is quite low when put into perspective, but considering that these are always a part of the probabilities of a time frame, usually showing up at about 2%, then you can see why we would call 25% rather high.
[Question] What probable causes could implement the mass exodus?
[Michael Entity] There are 9 scenarios, grouped in threes, with one of the nine showing up, or one scenario from each: 3 related to assaults on United State’s government ranging from assaults on landmarks to assaults on political figures; 3 related to “natural disasters” ranging between a biologically contagious outbreak to extremes of elements; and 3 scenarios related to war, ranging from civil to world. ALL of these scenarios are included in the 25%, which helps further to put this information into perspective.
Again, these are not predictions, but our interpretation of patterns as we see them unfolding based on momentum.
To help put these probabilities into even clearer perspective, consider each probability as being a wall toward which one is driving a car at a certain speed: the scenarios described are the various walls toward which you are now driving at about 25 miles per hour, within a 100 mile strip, so to speak. Scenarios for a smooth transition of presidency into an unprecedented revolution of consciousness across the planet are currently standing at 60%, or 60 miles per hour at 100 miles away from that wall.
We will also point out that it is not just momentum and speed (percentage) that factors into the “drive” between a point in time and a wall (probability), but how well one is paying attention (conscious) during that drive. Even at 60 miles per hour, one can easily “hit the brakes,” or veer off course, and even at 25 miles per hour, one can hit the wall “before you know it,” if no one is paying attention.
We will conclude here. Good day to each of you. Goodbye.
