MICHAEL SPEAKS Online – Open Floor
[Michael Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
[Question] There are some chemicals that seem central to our culture at this time. Testosterone is one, Caffeine another. A new one I just learned about is Oxytocin. Could you comment on these substances? Maybe there are other ones just as important, or more so. That is my question.
[Michael Entity] The three chemicals you have listed are natural to your world and culture, even as there may be some synthetic versions of each, or innovative media for each. For the most part, every culture within a time frame has as part of its emphasis an attention toward some stimulants.
In terms of the list you’ve offered up, each has its different effect. We will comment on each listed above as they are used outside of a natural supply, when actively sought as a supplement or for effect.
Testosterone is sought in your culture now as a means to bring about a balance (or imbalance) to the ratio between “male” and “female” energies. Your world now has more higher-male energy female bodies and more higher-female energy male bodies than it has seen in a long time. Testosterone is called upon to soothe that panic during this natural shift. Rather than implementing a deeper understanding of the female energies as they show up through a male body, it is sought to stimulate out of the body as much of the male energy as possible. This use is “fine,” but the implementation of Testosterone as a substitute for understanding can only last for so long. Eventually the panic fades and a more natural expression is allowed.
Caffeine is called upon as a stimulant as it relates to an individual’s Frequency. Many are drawn to Caffeine as it keeps the individual Frequency at the higher end of the range one has within his capabilities. A Higher Frequency fits into Young Soul paradigm of “fast, fast, fast!” in terms of productivity, processing, and use of energy. As the Mature Soul consciousness takes more rooting, less Caffeine will be consumed as each individual finds his own pace and uses that to his advantage, rather than forcing oneself to the exhausting higher end of your Frequency. We remind you that we are responding to your question within the context of its use within the culture, but there are various individual reasons, as well.
Oxytocin is a stimulant that triggers access to the Higher Centers, particularly the Higher Moving Center. When naturally occuring, it is activated in relation to a fragment’s conscious ability to process that access, but in its synthetic uses, the access is still made, but conscious processes are out of sync. The use of this chemical is relative to the panic over Soul Age Transition within your culture from Young To Mature. We do not see this as being used as a “central to your culture,” but it is a possibility that it gain more momentum if a shift in consciousness is not rooted more tangibly within the next 10 years. The use of this chemical is to help induce access to the transition process in a tangible way, because many assume that evidence must be externally-shown that one is present and accessible. Many fragments are present in your world who appear to be withdrawn and out of sync with an expressive, social culture, but these fragments are not lacking. They are merely interacting in a different way. Imprinting and social pressures can cause one to either push a withdrawn fragment into a chemically-induced accessibility, or push the self into that state.
[Question] I don´t see the difference there… The self?
[Michael Entity] In general, people may feel pressured to push a withdrawn fragment into this state, or one might feel that pressure on oneself and choose it for oneself.
We would suggest that there are many who are incarnated at this time who are in a lifetime that could be akin to an “in-breath” over the scheme of things. As with all preoccupations with a stimulant, the evolving understanding of the motivation behind its use brings far more effect than the actual use of the chemical.
In addition to the list above, we would add Nicotine, which is a stimulant that affects the Mode. This chemical has been in place over a long, Young Soul paradigm because of the nature of that soul age to leave intimacy out of the picture as one goes for what one wants from life. Smoke in the lungs can act as a substitute for intimacy as this soothes the Emotional Center, and Nicotine stimulates superficial socializing as a means to keep the Mode in effect. The Mode is the part of ones personality that describes how one RELATES. Though we focused more directly on some of the specifics of each of these chemicals, it could be said that ALL chemicals within a culture that tend to be used as a stimulate are relative to the Mode. In nearly all cases of use in stimulants, each has to do with a forced form of relating.
[Question] How to validate one’s entity, if one has never met a person who has been channelled as a member of that entity?
[Michael Entity] Channeled information is not required for one to validate contact with an entity member, but it can help one in the process. In the case you describe, we would suggest exploring the themes and qualities and “trademarks” of your Entity and then apply that filter to your life to see who might resonate to those factors. That would be a first step. A next step might be then to “invite” entity members into your life who are more obvious and accessible. This could be done using the dream state, consciously inviting your incarnated members into your life as you fall asleep. Contact may be made in this dream state as a means to make plans for contact in physical life. Channeling can then be used beyond this for details and rounding out validation. You have met several from your Entity within your lifetime, from a childhood “friend” who used to kick your shins or feet on a playground, to a cashier at a frequented market who “went out of her way” to be helpful, to a fellow passenger on a public transportation route of some length, to a man who was a “stranger” who appears to have photographed you at your request, etc. Though we will not list all of them here, we can offer those suggestions for references in your memory as a means to start your validation process. If none of these sound familiar, it may be because these instances are too vague or that we are accessing the records incorrectly altogether. We suggest you explore them, but you will know more precisely if they are accurate or not. In addition to these, there are many public figures from your Entity, as well as many Michael Students with whom you have contact on a regular basis.
[Question] Currently I have an issue with a woman in my home owner’s association, Mrs. W. I’m the president of our HOA, and the minute she told us, via email, that she sent me a certified letter making demands, my reaction to it was to get very angry about it. I couldn’t contain my anger towards her when she arrived at our meeting and I yelled at her. This surprised me… that I got so angry because I rarely get angry with people. I have been looking at this issue of what caused me to get so angry with her and what am I missing about her to allow me to stop feeling my hackles raise when I see or even think about her. I know the anger I’m feeling is not really about her. Please can you shed some light on this… along with telling me how I might handle her with more positive results?
[Michael Entity] On a self-karmic level, this relates to several issues: issues of Control as it extends from Stubbornness (you prefer discretion over obnoxious call-outs); issues of inadequacy as described by your Self-deprecation (it hurts to be told you fall short of expectations). In the case you describe, this triggered every defense you could muster to protect yourself from losing control and feeling inadequate. Your anger was a form of your trying to re-implement some control and to compensate for the sense of inadequacy. It is Good Work that you recognize that this incident is unrelated to the woman, herself, even as she provoked these reactions in you. This is consciousness, Essence.
[Comment] Wow… that makes total sense to me.
[Michael Entity] You claim that you “rarely get angry with people,” but this is untrue. Or more specifically, this is an inaccurate statement. It is simply that your anger more often is turned inward rather than outward. You are exploring the other side of anger in this incident as a means to bring some wholeness further into your life. That is the main self-karmic issue: your RIGHT to be angry. Your RIGHT to feel hurt. And ultimately, your RIGHT to express. Vocalizing your Anger frees your Intellectual Center or your Throat Chakra to “unclog” years of suppression.
[Question] This is healthier for my body to express it outwardly?
[Michael Entity] It came out more strongly as a result of past suppression. We would not say that it is healthier for your body to express it outwardly as much as we would say that it is healthier for ALL of your bodies to OWN your anger and to express it appropriately. This would include the internal expressions as much as the external. In other words, you have created a dichotomy within you that has left you with arguments against and for your anger over time. Whether this anger was kept inside, directed toward the self, or externalized. Your next steps are to consciously grasp that your anger is a means of uncovering areas of powerlessness within the life and then to bring consciousness to that area, re-empowering that area. In your case, the powerlessness could be said to be rooted in your Goal of Acceptance. As you explore this Goal, much of what is acceptable about yourself or others seems to be out of your hands in many ways. Over time you have found this to simply be untrue. So it is that you are now more likely to express your anger because you are not threatened by the loss of acceptance, of yourself, or from others. Now that you have seen the disproportionate effects of anger as it is expressed after being suppressed, you may find that you are more appropriate as you experience it in the future.
Though this was a rather personal question, we do see our response as being applicable to many.
If you wish to stretch yourself a bit more, it would be an interesting “short cut” toward balance if this incident were addressed with the woman in question, not offering apologies, but in offering appreciation and acknowledgment for the benefit gained from your exploring your part of the equation. You may not be able to control how people ask for what they want, but you can learn to see these calls for action to simply be variations of how one has learned to get things done, not as personal attacks.
We will conclude here. Good day to each of you.
