According to Michael:
“When one is defensive, one is always responding to the past. A defensive stance can almost always be traced to a single concept, expression, feeling, or behavior that is in the fragment as needing to be RIGHT and VALIDATED.”
“Defensiveness, then, is a navigational alert to areas in which one has not integrated a Personal Truth.”
They go on to suggest these steps in dealing with Defensiveness:
“When one begins to feel Defensive: STOP. No matter how embarrassing or awkward the situation may be, one can ALWAYS stop being Defensive.”

[Val1] Can you tell us more about creating, changing our own truths?
[M_Entity] In the context of this time frame, most of you will be looking at your own Personal Truths in relation to the average World Truths about WAR, Religion, and Community. There is a focus now on these very important Truths as they stand for those who are in more dangerous positions and how that may or may not affect you.

[M_Entity] Hello to all of you. We are here.
We will begin with the requested “Energy Report” for the weeks between March 30 and April 12, 2002. As most of you know, the energy throughout the year as the Overleaves describe it, shifts in emphasis as the “seasons” change. The entirety of the year could be said to have a context described by the Role for the year and the Centering, while the first 3 months tend to focus on the Goal, the following 3 months the Mode, the following 3 months the Attitude, and the year ending with the Chief Features. This means that “spring time” is, IN GENERAL (and not a rule), a time period with emphasis on relationships, intimacy, and the Mode. This year’s Mode is Passion, meaning that relationships in general will take on a more profound emphasis in the context of Self-actualizing or Identifying, the positive and negative poles of Passion respectively.

[Meredith k] I am having trouble getting along with younger souls, mostly around the area of projections, as I see it. I experience younger souls as blaming outer circumstances. I get so defensive. How not to take this so personally and be so upset? Often, in my “karmic relationship” If the “I” language is too personal, then, how to find peace with younger/different souls?
[Michael Entity] One method of relating to Younger Souls is to actually embody and use the perception that you wish to impose on those Younger Souls. In that embodiment, there is an ironic freedom and adaptability that will be developed. In other words, you are doing to the Younger Souls what you are so annoyed with in them: Blaming.
