[Question] abandonment – we all do this alot , we come together, we go apart , that is life, as we know it… so, what can you tell me, that would help all of us, with this type of issue involved with our passages through our lives — i am sure, it is a theme for many — how deeply rooted is ABANDONMENT/does it have 7 levels; and; how do each of the 7 chief dragons affect it, like impatience, arrogance, self dep; self destruction, etc
[Michael Entity] True Abandonment is of such popularity for exploration by souls that it is within the 30 “Classic” (external) Monads: the Abandoned and the Abandoner. It is quite popular for the same reasons that the other relationships are popular: it is an accelerated experience that holds great potential for learning about oneself. True Abandonment is an experience that eventually leads to a discovery of self-value and empowerment that, when discovered, is unprecedented. True Abandonment is antithesis to the truth of your resonance with others, and to experience it pushes one to question the value of oneself in ways that few other experiences push one to question in that way. The process of being abandoned, and the process of questioning, can be extremely painful until the lies are worked through and the truth is finally comprehended: that the value of self is never dependent upon the relative position one is within a relationship; and that the experience of abandonment is, ironically, due to the overblown value one has placed upon another fragment over self.
There are 7 Circles of Abandonment that one can initiate or experience:
Survival Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that is necessary for the survival of another, such as a mother abandoning a baby in a ditch.
Sexual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that nurtures another in an intimate way, either literally sexually, or simply as embracing the Other as Oneself.
Physical Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that was necessary for the mobility and productivity of another fragment.
Emotional Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position that embraces another fragment with room to Be without explanation or apology.
Intellectual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of communication and exchange with another.
Intuitive Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of encouragement for upholding the fulfillment of visions, dreams, and wishes.
Spiritual Abandonment: which is the abandonment of a position of guidance and clarity for the bigger picture and pattern of the life.
In instances of True Abandonment, Karma is often created. When we say True Abandonment, we mean that one has instilled oneself as a provider for a particular context, and then bails on the responsibilities of that position upon which another became dependent. When one experiences True Abandonment, the effects are valid and we do not mean to suggest that they are not, though we do suggest that most of the contexts can be overcome as the individual fragment finds his or her own sense of value.
In the first context of Survival, the exploration of value is dependent upon Essence, not the Personality. The Essence will either let the life go as a means to start again in another life, or find a way to get help to the Personality that has been abandoned, if the Personality is receptive to that help.
[Comment] And all the 7 seems to relate somehow with the 7 chakras and centers too
[Michael Entity] Yes, there is a relevant parallel to the Chakras.
[Question] Every Personality can experience many abandonments which are only experience — not Monadal levels of True Abandonment?
[Michael Entity] The Monadal process of Abandoned/Abandoner would focus on a single Circle, or context, emphasizing, for instance, Sexual Abandonment or Intuitive Abandonment. The Monad of Abandoned/Abandoner can be played out multiple times across different relationships for emphasis on the different Circles, or contexts.
We would also wish to clarify that we use the term True Abandonment to refer to the legitimate reliquishing of responsibilities for a position that was originally, mutually agreed upon. This is to differentiate from the INTERPRETATION of Abandonment that is merely a reaction to the disappointment that someone did not fulfill your expectations.
Most instances of True Abandonment are thoroughly explored by mid to late Mature. Most instances of abandonment after that are those of interpretation and directly related to self-karmic issues (personal, internal divisions within) that one is working on resolving.
