Here is a basic reference for all of the Internal Monads and the symptoms of a completed or incomplete progression. I have the details of each of the Internal Monads, too, but I will have to pull those out another day. -Troy
7 INTERNAL MONADS
Each Monad is specifically a marker for the Essence to gauge within the life where it is in terms of what was planned versus what has come to pass. Essence and Personality can sometimes have very different experiences of the lifetime and these markers, or rites of passage, allow the Personality to “upload” all experiences that have come to pass, so Essence can help in the overall creation of the life. At that point new plans can be made, alterations set in place, new people and Agreements and Karma brought in, etc. The Positive Poles are the ability to adapt to the lifetime, whereas the Negative Poles are resistance and basic refusal to adapt to the results of these evaluations.
Within a given lifetime there are 7 “rites of passages” that each person passes through as they grow as Personality. A person can pass through these easily or with struggle, depending on where he is with himself in terms of perceptions and experiences. There is no wrong or right way to pass through these Internal Monads, but getting “stuck” in a Monad or passing through in the Negative Pole, can affect the life in many ways and is usually not pleasant to the Personality. Some people defensively “enjoy” where they are when they are “stuck”, and make the best of it. There is no crime in not completing a Monad. In fact, nearly 80% of all fragments DO NOT get through the fourth Monad within one lifetime.
To be specific, a “monad” is used here to refer to anything requiring at least two polarities as a means for progression, and is generating experiences completely within it. During your Internal Monads it will feel as if there are at least “two sides” of you, then. One side will be taking a more Positive stance, while the other side gives you the challenges and takes the more Negative stance. This push/pull can create a lot of internal struggle throughout a Monad. The ultimate resolution and completion of a Monad will be in finding the balance within yourself and coming to peace around that particular Monad’s context.
SPECIAL NOTE: There is a HUGE misconception in the Michael Community that to pass successfully through an Internal Monad is good, admirable, and better, and somehow lends you more credibility in your expression, while NOT completing or resisting the process of an Internal Monad is undesirable, bad, and the person is dismissed or downplayed as “less than”. That’s just not true. Interaction and communication among some Michael students has gone as far as dismissing those who are only partially through this particular Monad, regardless of how successfully they are progressing. All of us are dealing with varying levels of success in varying parts of our lives, and the 4th Internal Monad is not a defining factor of an individual’s worth.
It is rare that a person completes all 7 Internal Monads within one life. Usually only those who are 6th Level to 7th Level within a Soul Age succeed in transiting the 7 Internal Monads within one life. Otherwise, the passages can span several lives.
The 7 Internal Monads are the 7 Stages of each Soul Level within the Soul Ages.
As a SOUL, we pass through a Soul Age having 7 Levels. On each of those Levels, we may take several lives to pass through that single Level. The 7 Internal Monads are the SUB-levels of each LEVEL within a Soul Age! And, of course, each Internal Monad has its own 7 phases.
In order to transit a Soul LEVEL, one must successfully have gone through the 7 Internal Monads during that particular Level, however many lifetimes that takes. In the same way it may take Essence several lives to deal with the experiences during a LEVEL OF SOUL AGE, it can also take a few lifetimes to pass through and process a SINGLE Internal Monad.
An Internal Monad is considered “complete” when you have reconciled and resolved the questions of that passage, coming out the other side through the Positive Pole. ALL Internal Monads are entered through the Negative Pole, and are completed if the experience of the Positive Pole can be included. During the process, both Poles will be experienced. If the Internal Monad is incomplete or resting in the Negative Pole, THAT particular Internal Monad will be the bottom-line context for most of your experiences throughout the rest of the life. ALL subsequent Internal Monads are defaulted to the Negative Pole in progression as well, or never even attempted at all.
The cool thing is that an incomplete Internal Monad can be completed at ANY point in a life. This means if you are in the middle of your 4th Internal Monad with issues still emanating from the lack of completion of the 2nd Internal Monad, (which, in turn will affect your 3rd Internal Monad), you can address those issues, complete the 2nd and 3rd Internal Monad, thus allowing the successful passage through the present Monad!
I am still gathering the details of each Internal Monad and its process. Here is the general path of a lifetime and each Monad.
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Root Chakra, or Instinctive Center (life force). Some people channeling Michael believe that the first and last Internal Monad are always completed because they just happen. This seems logical since you cannot escape death and if you are born, well, you are just born.
I disagree. The manner in which you are born, the environment’s impact on the body, any abuses imposed, even smacking the body to bring the baby screaming into the world, can damage the adjustment of the body in relation to the Root Chakra.
The Instinctive Center is the ONE Chakra/Center that is carried over from lifetime to lifetime. It is taken from one lifetime like a floppy disk and “inserted” into the next life, carrying deep memories, your Karmic Records, your plans for the life, etc. Imagine getting a brand new computer and inserting a disk with a program on it, then taking that computer and dropping it, or kicking it. Regardless of how incredible that computer is, or what the program is on the disk, this kind of disruption can wreak havoc on the whole system!
The goal of progression through the First Internal Monad is to basically ensure the Instinctive Center is stably intact, in harmony with the body, or Essence will not be able to “move in” when it is ready. A soul rarely moves into a body right away, but rather cares for and guides the development of the body, gradually moving in over the first 7 years.
Since being born happens many times and in many ways, the Essence and Body/Personality really do get very good at this and become extremely adaptable. This is why it appears logical to some that Birth and Death are always completed. Because the physical aspects of this event are an unavoidable part of being Human, the event is quite familiar to an Older Soul. Early in the cycle of lifetimes, this Monad can be extremely challenging.
As an adult, tell-tale signs of an incomplete FIRST Internal Monad are mental instability and the inability to function in society in any meaningful way, having to depend on an institution or caretaker for your most basic needs, separating you from the “real world”, such as being hospitalized for your mental health conditions.
As a child, the incomplete First Monad will show most during when the Second Monad is to be played out, turning into tyrannical tantrums and screaming, brutality and refusal.
As an adult, a completed First Monad is indicated by being alive and well, healthy in most respects and able to be a part of life in general.
As a child, the completed First Monad will show up most obviously during the Second Monad’s playing out, with the child beginning to ask all of the “Why’s” of every iota of experience, sheer curiosity and want for knowing.
2. Autonomy (age 3 or so)
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Moving Center, or Sexual Chakra.
As an adult, Tell-tale signs of an incomplete SECOND Internal Monad are Intimacy issues, lack of social skills, bowel problems, preoccupation with remaining under parental care, or a strong need for approval far into your adulthood.
As a child, the incomplete Second Internal Monad will show up as soon as Adolescence, with violence, complete rebellion against all things, sexual promiscuity (defined here as having sex to just have it, usually for attention or acceptance, without meaning, curiosity, or relevance on any level), rape, dropping out from all forms of organization.
As an adult, a completed Second Monad is usually seen by being able to have sexual intimacy, affection, and a healthy seeking or allowance of that. Parents are seen as people, not resources or reasons for who you are.
As a child, the completed Second Monad will show most during the Third Monad (adolescence) as a healthy and completed separation from parental or guardian care, even if only psychologically, and the beginnings of seeking “true love”, dating, consensual sex.
3. Adolescence (age 12 – 20 or so)
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Moving Center, or Power Chakra.
Tell-tale signs of an incomplete THIRD Internal Monad show strongly through the Fourth Monad (and beyond, if not addressed) as “authority issues”, rage, constant involvement in confrontation, a preoccupation with “getting attention” and/or acceptance despite destructive behavior, and finding it very important to rally others alongside them for support against something.
A completion of the Third Monad usually finds the adult being able to side-step confrontation, usually doesn’t even attract it, is peaceful about differences, recognizes “authority” for what it is and leaves it to its context and allowing those who wish to play that game to do so, rather than being preoccupied with fighting it.
4. Stabilization (age 30 – 50 or so)
This is the adjustment of the body and personality in relation to the Emotional Center, or Heart Chakra.
Tell-tale signs of an incomplete FOURTH Internal Monad are depression, feeling a lack of “purpose”, feeling lost, “giving up”, anxiety, great fear and/or severe illnesses, apathy. The incompletion begins to show evidence quite currently in that Monad, but even more amplified during the Fifth Internal Monad where the person then displays pure resignation, constant-voiced resentments and preoccupations with the aches and pains of life.
Signs of a completed Fourth Monad are seen in the regaining of a sense of innocence, awe, inspiration and purpose, motivation for personal expression and living as one feels compelled, making life personally meaningful. This completion shows strongly when the Fifth Internal Monad begins and there is a sense of want for travel, exploration, an adventurous new move, beginning fun projects and being in groups of like-minded activities.
5. Recreation (age 45 – 65 or so)
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Intellectual Center, or Communication Chakra.
Tell-tale signs of an incomplete FIFTH Internal Monad are seen near the beginning of the 6th Monad as early senility, sporadic memory loss, Alzheimer’s, the stereotypical eccentric elderly, a complete regression to emotional memories of the experiences most programmed into the body.
Signs of a completed Fifth Monad show during the 6th Monad when there are stories to tell, teachings and anecdotes to pass on, memories to share, a general conclusion and peace settling over the life. If memory does begin to fail, “senility” is replaced with wild, philosophical explorations throughout the emotional memories of the lifetime, along with valid psychic journeys through folding time and space.
6. Reviewing (age 60 to 80 or so)
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Emotional Center, or Brow Chakra.
An incomplete 6th Internal Monad shows up as great regret, searches for desperate reconciliation and forgiveness, death-bed wishes and confessions, having never known or accepted love or support and realizing this profoundly, fearing dying.
A completed 6th Internal Monad is experienced as peaceful within and without, at ease with the inevitability death, knows love has been experienced and recognizes this profoundly.
This is the adjustment of the body and Personality in relation to the Higher Intellectual Center, or the Spiritual Chakra.
An incomplete SEVENTH Monad can show up as a literal “haunting”, family members and friends grieving deeply and uncontrollably for great, great lengths of time “holding on” to the fragment, and an immediate or overlapping rebirth in a new body.
A completed Monad finds “you” moving on, regardless of your method of death, reviewing the life with/as Essence, comforting and “visiting” those who are still physical for a time, if needed, family and friends experiencing “you” as being safe and at peace, letting you go, and being able to plan the next life with insight from all lives having been experienced.
