[LE] So how can we work with our essence to choose a future direction?
[Michael_Entity] This happens by default… you [as Personality] are never truly disengaged from the process, but here are some things we might suggest:
Each moment, of course, is selected from a myriad of probabilities, but when we speak of Parallel Shifts, we are speaking of major shifts that “spin off” relatively NEW realities, not just minor alterations. In this particular shift, you will, according to your reactions to elements highlighted within your EXTERNAL reality, gain clues as to how you will move forward. As we mentioned before, ANIMALS and Specifically categorized/challenged people are the symbols for this shift. This means if you find yourself approached in some form over the next few weeks with one of these symbols, your interaction/reaction “tells” how “into it” you are; how willing, at least, THIS version of you would be to SERVICE (which is where most of the energy lies this year). If you “catch” yourself responding with little attention, or have no symbols highlighted, or find yourself BOTHERED, it will be apparent that your future probabilities are still going to be centered on work internally and individually. Little will occur in terms of a shift [for these individuals].
We do not imply that one or the other is more or less preferable, but rather that these symbols will help our Students gain clarity of consciousness in their interaction with Essence and reality [choices] that are normally not as evident.
