Our opening comments in this
session explore an aspect of unconditional love not often mentioned. We
like to call it "building the bridge," and without this component, your attempts
to attain "agape" will often fall short of expectations and plunge
you deep into a river of indifference.
Building a bridge to another is
not unlike the way a master builder might construct a bridge in real life.
First, the foundation is laid on either side of the chasm that exists, and then
the beams are
added to eventually connect both sides together. This part of the construction
process is where the real work begins in this analogy. If the master builder is
negligent in his calculations, either the entire bridge might tumble down or an
overwhelming fear of the project will halt the construction of the bridge
In your society alone there are
literally millions of these partially constructed bridges built to connect other
fragments together. They
are often stopped, though,
just short of their goal, leaving painful spiritual gaps in the soul.
The overleaves, of
course, are a primary tool in bridging this gap. Many of our students, however, fall short of this goal by using overleaves as a tool for labeling others
rather than understanding them. This is not what we originally intended. When
overleaves are mainly used to label perceived faults or negativities, the
foundation of the system literally collapses under the weight of this judgment.
One suggestion is
to think of each person you meet as a human divining rod that points you back to
the Tao. The people you encounter are then the greatest treasures you will ever
discover in life. Each fragment is
your bridge to understanding where you came from and where you will be
returning. On the other hand, when you judge, you not only halt the construction
of this bridge, but also block any attempts by another person to connect a
bridge to you. Therefore, the bridge you spoke of earlier in your question comes
when you truly learn to understand another person, not judge them.
We offer the following
Using a pencil and a sheet of
paper, list the abrasive qualities you perceive in another, along with
any particular offenses they have committed against you. Important: Leave space
at the top of the page for a positive affirmation about the individual. If one
doesn't exist, invent something based on the positive poles of their overleaves.
Over a period of a couple
weeks, meditate on each of these offenses one at a time. Allow the negative
feelings that stem from the previous wrong-doing to once again occupy your body.
Do not shy away from the intensity. Let it engulf you. Feel angry if you want or
even allow yourself to feel rage. Eventually, though, you will find the feeling
can only be
sustained for so long before your body tires and it starts to dissipate. Don't
fight this. Give yourself permission to let it go. Then take your pencil and
erase the entry.
Your goal is to erase all of
the negative entries you had listed about the individual until only the positive
affirmation remains at the top of the page. You are learning to accept the
fragment and release your judgments about them -- especially those judgments
that had once seemed justified.
You can also do this with any
negative events from your past.
This may seem more ritualistic
than practical, but the act of erasing what you've written on the page is
a symbolic way of cleansing old wounds. It is
important to add a physical element to this ritual.
of course, many variations of this method that could be
Q & A
<Glenn> Please comment on how we may
utilize music as a universal language to communicate with other fragments.
Is music the language of emotions and the soul? How may we best articulate
<DaveGregg> Music is
already being used quite effectively. While at times it is
more commercial than artistic, we do not judge the mechanics of the
expression -- it is
what it is.
We agree that music is
a universal solvent, if you will, that can indeed dissolve cultural
differences and reveal interesting commonalities that exist between others.
And it is true that music carries within its relentless pulse the rhythm of the soul.
it's through the beauty of individual expression that music truly soars.
In its highest form,
music incorporates the three centers: intellectual, emotional, and moving.
When this triad is
properly balanced, it could be
said that music has reached it's pinnacle of expression.
The understanding that
comes from comparing and contrasting the centers is one missing component in
music that could connect other fragments together. Music that
communicates at higher levels typically involves an expression of these
centers. By immersing yourself in music, either through listening or
performance, there's an opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for how
the centers operate.
Using music and the centers as
a vehicle of expression not only helps in understanding the mechanics of the
centers, but also helps in understanding how people use their centers on
a daily basis. Anytime you can comprehend the inner workings of
another soul, even in seemingly insignificant ways, you are
a step closer to discovering the commonalities that tie humanity together.
It all begins with one person.
Using music as a portal
to the higher centers
is another effective
way to connect to others, since you are
momentarily perceiving them from the perspective of your higher self. To
those of you who can access the higher centers through music, we suggest
that you try to observe the people around you while you're in these euphoric
states. Notice how your perspective about them starts to change. For a brief
moment you will literally see people through the eyes of essence. This in
itself can be
enlightening for many. Allowing yourself to realize, for example, how
judgmental your views about others have been,
and how much of your daily world is
being twisted and distorted by the filtering lens of false personality, can be
a transformative experience.
<SRG> What happens to the soul of an animal when a most
beloved pet is very sick and has to be " put down"? I am feeling immense
guilt, as this beloved kitty was my best and dearest friend....
<Iris>What do the Michael Teachings say about the souls of animals
Can animals come back as humans or humans come back as animals?
Animals are not just decorations created to adorn the planet you live on. They
are evolving sparks of consciousness that live their lives with a purpose.
The fundamental difference
between the animal and the human soul is the level of complexity: animals are
instinctive centered, they live in the moment, and by human standards they are mostly incapable of
abstract thought. On the other hand, their individual expression of
consciousness is not dependent upon having a human experience in order to
evolve, nor should they be compared in human terms for their lives to have
meaning. Their lives are yet another infinite way in which the Tao may be
expressed and there is no
other meaning required.
Animals do not incarnate as
humans and upon death they rejoin their central source. Euthanasia can be a
humane choice for an animal that is dying and in great pain; however, your
society often uses the practice as a convenience in ridding themselves of the
burden of caring for an ailing pet.
There is apparently significant amounts of the humane genome which is not
apparently used; people talk about gene activation techniques that 'switch on'
some of this genetic matter to allow people to be more spiritually capable and
physically well (ie. allowing healing of medical conditions, etc.). I know
this is not part of the Michael teachings or terminology, however I would be
interested in hearing what Michael has to say about this matter.
<DaveGregg> Genetic material
of this kind often represents remnants from the evolutionary process of the
human body. This allegedly unused code is
actually DNA that has been
de-activated in favor of other evolutionary changes. Over time this matter
assimilated. For the time being, however, it serves as a reminder of what once was.
We do see a probability of
significant breakthroughs in the alteration of genetic material and the
effects it will have in curing disease and increasing the lifespan of the
species, but this is
far more complex than the mere activation of a switch, so to speak.
In your case, we see a struggle with various health concerns.
Anytime you find yourself in
highly stressful situations or projects that demand a considerable amount of
focused attention and energy, we suggest allowing ample recovery time
afterwards. Your body does not recover quickly, and although there is
a frenetic quality in your spirit that would like to be
more active than you currently are,
we see a trend where you easily get overwhelmed.
Regarding your diabetes, a
disease like this is
often feared or hated, but in your situation it has forced you to examine
aspects of your life task that you otherwise might have
overlooked. A more sedentary
lifestyle has helped you to see beyond the 9-5 blur that often encumbers and
obscures the inner world of those trapped in time-consuming careers. In short,
you have been
given an opportunity to learn more about who you really are.
This does not mean you
necessarily chose this disease for that purpose, but essence has certainly
found ways to make the most of it. In fact, making the most of a situation has been
a theme in several of your lifetimes, and you have been
a source of inspiration for others who might have needlessly struggled if you
around to serve as a role model.
<Chenoa> I'd like to know the significant life purpose
of why my friend Chris and I came together in this lifetime. We are very
connected in this life, almost like twin souls, but we just found each other
within the past year, and I'd like to know if he is my twin soul or twin
flame, and if we have a specific goal to work on in this life. Also, if there
were any specific past lives we had together.
Many factors play a role in bringing two fragments together. Some, of
course, are due to pre-incarnational agreements, while some are
certain commonalities that attract at opportune moments. In your case there
congenial connections in several past lives and the relationship has now been
re-established. We do not see a specific purpose other than to enjoy and
nurture the connection you originally fostered long ago.
We do not recognize the term,
twin soul, and do not see an essence twin connection. But three notable past lives do come forward:
In the first, you were
roman gladiators that fought valiantly against each other until you reached a
mutual state of exhaustion. Your emperor was
so impressed by the display of courage that he declared both of you the
victor. This created a bond of respect between the two of you that lasted
until the end of your lives.
In another lifetime you were
both males who lived in a Native American tribe. You were
exceptionally close. You hunted together, played games of sport together,
and fought neighboring tribes by each other's side. During more peaceful times
you frequently escaped from the mundane responsibilities of tribal life and
found exploring remote locations where you sought numerous adventures. There was
a rapport between you that allowed an exchange of ideas you rarely could share
with anyone else.
Finally, there was
a lifetime as husband and wife on the American frontier. We see a small
farmhouse and land that
was developed after the
Homestead Act. The fragment, Chris, died at a young age, though, before many
of your plans could be
<MT List> Is either monogamy or polyamory more advanced than
We do not tally the number of sexual partners when measuring the level of
advancement in a soul. Single or multiple partner relationships are
simply a matter of choice and lifestyle preference. Both offer
challenges and opportunities for growth.
The crux of this
question involves personal boundaries in the area of sexual and
emotional intimacy. Learning to honor and respect the boundaries of others
is at the heart of these lessons, and the clay used in sculpting these
experiences consists of honesty and maturity. Fragments lacking in emotional
maturity will not do well in any kind of relationship. They will
decisions based on impulse and rarely consider the ramifications their
actions have upon others.
In the future, though,
challenges due to the over population of the planet could very well compel
people to consider group relationships out of basic economic necessity.
I work with the Mentally ill. What does Michael
think about the mentally ill. Are most of them in a certain soul age? Or
are some of their roles the same? I've noticed a lot of similarities in some of
the older adults. Are they more sensitive to subtleties around them? What makes
them talk to themselves, get paranoid, and have delusions?
<Melissa> Do people suffering
from multiple personality disorder exhibit past life personalities?
causes for what your current culture would deem "mental illness" than we can
effectively cite within the limitations of this session. In most cases, however,
the mentally ill are those fragments who suffer from either biological or neurochemical irregularities in the brain. Hypersensitive fragments exposed to
environmental stress or severe psychological trauma can also exhibit signs of
In extremely rare cases, some
fragments may possess psychic sensitivities so great that they are unable to
discern between physical and astral realities. This chaotic blend of the two
realms usually results in total madness.
Fragments who talk to themselves
or experience delusions are usually just manifesting the inherent symptoms of
their illness. On the other hand, those who have the ability to reach beyond the
veil of the physical are often interacting with actual discarnates from the
lower planes of the astral.
While it's true that genetics can
play a role in developing a mental illness, many fragments choose these
lifetimes for the challenges they bring. Certain kinds of mania can also
boost levels of creativity and insight, and although choosing a lifetime like
this could be considered walking on a tightrope, some artistic or
scientific-minded souls have chosen such incarnations in hopes of giving
themselves an edge.
Multiple personalities, on the
other hand, are often sub-personalities or conflicting parts of self that seek
to express themselves. These are not actual fragments from a past life coming
through, but shadows, if you will, of previous overleaves or certain aspects
from past lives that haven't been thoroughly assimilated.
<Gene H.> How does a fragment end
up living the life of a serial killer? Is this planned? If not, how does essence let this "happen"?
<DaveGregg> It should be
pointed out that even the widely despised despot, Adolph Hitler, had past lives
where he loved and was loved. A fragment can conceivably spend one lifetime
relentlessly campaigning for world peace, yet in the next, commit unspeakable
crimes against humanity. This fickle line between good and evil can be difficult
for some to understand, but it illustrates how the nature of free-will so
completely permeates all physical incarnations.
Essence would never plan a life as
recklessly imbalanced as that of a serial killer, but once again, free will
allows a fragment the option of stumbling through life blinded by false
personality and chief feature.
The life task of Ted Bundy, for
example, was primarily about learning how to conform to societal structures. This
fragment was bright, enthusiastic, and had good intentions before coming into
the incarnation. As we know now, he strayed away from life plans and will spend several lifetimes repaying the karmic debt that was sowed.
Although many variables exist in
such matters, serial killers often possess internally abrading overleaves and
strong feelings of disempowerment. Their connection with essence is usually in a
severe state of atrophy, and a void is created by this that they attempt to fill
through the disempowerment of others. The unprecedented level of narcissism and
need for control with these individuals is intense, and a chief feature of
arrogance or greed can fuel a desire to control, possess, and objectify their
victims. It should also come as no surprise that serial killers are frequently
stuck in the negative pole of the second monad, which leads to abnormalities in
the brain. This results in a self-identified state that inhibits their
ability to feel empathy for others.
Serial killers are often Infant or
Baby souls, although there have been some at the Mature soul level. This is
<PQ> Could you discuss the existence of malicious discarnates - their activity among us,
and their intentions, as well as
discarnates, as you call them, often exist in two forms. The first are fragments
blinded by excessive maya during an incarnation. Upon death these discarnates literally become shackled to the physical in a delusional prison of
their own making. With the assistance of guides they eventually escape this
self-inflicted miasma that clouds their thinking, but it can take some time
depending on the severity of their delusion. Anger and a sense of desperation may
add to the confusion and terror they feel, and many of your biblical depictions
of Hell have originated from this condition.
These discarnates are not malicious in the true definition of the word, but in
their rage they may occasionally lash out at those still living that appear indifferent to their struggles. In a similar sense, discarnates who have
become earthbound due to physical plane addictions can also be the cause of considerable mischief.
Our second example consists of an improper use
of astral matter. These emanations are not sentient beings -- or what we'd even consider a
consciousness -- but negatively charged thought-forms that exist in ephemeral
states, feeding off the fear of others like starving animals. Negative projections
like this are created from the malleable matter in the
lower astral plane, and may either reside there or intrude into the
physical space of others. Physical intrusions, however, are usually generated by
a living person or persons. Some group incantations of so-called demons have
been created in this way.
In your case, though, we see a being created from the dark, alter-ego of a
parent. A group manifestation of fear then sustained the projection.
<Meg> How does Michael view the
Bible. Will it ever be able to replaced or
added to fit more of the current times and growth.
<DaveGregg> We see the
bible as a cultural relic from the past, and like all antiquities, recognize
the influential role it played in history. The bible is like a time capsule, if
you will, and once opened you find yourself instantly immersed in the dogma and
beliefs of an ancient culture. While the inclusion of the Logos is perhaps the most redeeming quality in the
document, many of these passages have been distorted to the point of mere anecdotal
The word of God, of course, is not
represented in the bible any more than what you would find in other religious
texts. In fact, what you ultimately find in the bible is the word of...man.
<John S.> What do you see as some of the major spiritual advances
that will be made by humanity in general for this century? Also, as you see
it, what will be the catalysts, so to speak, that will spark the spiritual
Spiritual growth in this instance is highly subjective and subject to the
lessons being learned by each fragment. This does not mean that mass events
aren't experienced on a collective level, but each fragment experiences a mass
event from a perspective that's personally unique to them. In other words, the
catalyst for spiritual growth in one fragment might widely differ from that of
We do not see any notable
spiritual advances in humanity at this time, but wish to point out that as
fragments now lead considerably longer life spans, more experiences are
being absorbed and the ability to progress in a spiritual sense is
moving much faster than before. In fact, we know of other worlds that
obliterated themselves after reaching your level of technology, so pat
yourselves on the back -- you've done better than most.
<Equinox> What is absolute in the universe, and what is changing?
<DaveGregg> The word "absolute"
not a term easily applied to any aspect of the Universe, since in even the
less malleable structures of the Physical plane there
a constant state of flux and an impetus to grow. This form of evolution,
however, could technically
considered an absolute. Evolution, whether it
Darwinian or spiritual,
a constant in all dimensional worlds, and there
not one consciousness, either animate or inanimate, that doesn't seek this
form of progression.
Love, of course,
an absolute that embraces and permeates all that
and all that ever will
at the core of everything that exists, and it
the very essence of the Tao and all that you will ever know.
Overall, though, the concept of an absolute in the Universe
a bit of a misnomer. The only absolutes that could
defined in a truly tangible sense
those that either you create or observe, and even those transitory
representations of reality
reflections of your own world view and not necessarily those of another.
In the end, however, once the complexity of evolutionary change
compiled and collated, and the illusionary constructs of multi-dimensional
stripped away, the only absolute that truly remains to hold it altogether,
I've read a book where Michael indicated that life is
a game set up by the Tao where the goal is to achieve
unconditional acceptance of self and others. And that
after we've achieved this on the physical plane, we
then continue with learning on the six remaining planes,
en route to unity with the Tao itself, at which point
the process starts all over again. My question is:
Why? What exactly is the purpose of all this
learning? Are we learning in preparation for
something? Maybe possibly becoming Tao's of our own
personal universes or something? Or is it just
something that we're/the Tao is doing to keep from
being bored over an eternity of being?
<DaveGregg> Everything yearns to grow -- from the single cell that
divides itself into another, to the tree that raises a branch to reach the
companion in the Universe and at times even a chaotic one. But the
all-encompassing goal in this journey is to experience everything that can
possibly be experienced in ways yet to be experienced. More succinctly, the
ultimate purpose is just "to be."
Michael believe that when someone has an abortion the baby (fragment) goes on to
another family? Does this cancel out future life agreements? Is the baby in
agonizing pain like it feels to me?
<DaveGregg> If one of the
parents has an agreement with the discarnate child, the soul of the infant may
wait until another opportunity for birth can be arranged. The next potential
incarnation, however, must still be in alignment with the life plan of the future child,
or the agreement will be abdicated.
The nature of choice is well
understood by all reincarnating fragments, so there is no agonizing pain
experienced by the soul if the mother chooses to have an abortion. In fact,
"back to the drawing board" is the usual feeling.
there foods which we are best off eating in order to prepare our bodies for
growth/transformation/evolution/change? What should our dietary focus be on?
<DaveGregg> Unless your choice
in food leads to poor health or addictive behavior, spiritual growth is not
dependent upon the food you eat. With that said, it's always advisable to eat
foods that contribute to the life force rather than deteriorate it. Processed
foods, for example, are heavily laced with preservatives and other unnatural
chemicals, and while they may not prove harmful if consumed in small quantities,
energetically they are lifeless and offer little nutritional value.
Food that carries a life force,
such as fruits and vegetables, are preferable alternatives due to the living
energy they transfer to the body.
The consumption of animal protein,
of course, is another viable source of food. The harsh chemical additives in the meat,
however, along with the inhumane and deplorable conditions now present in
factory farms, has greatly diminished the value of this food source.
Further degradation in the guise of swift moving diseases could eventually
render this industry unusable unless considerable reforms are taken to address
the ecological imbalances created by exploiting other life forms.
The rate of growth and evolution
you seek is strictly up to you, of course. On the other hand, if you avoid
"empty calories," as one of our students once put it, and infuse your body with
food that vitalizes rather than drains, your journey in life would certainly be
We see certain
incongruities in you that long for equilibrium. Learning to consume what life has to
offer while maintaining an equal balance on both sides of the scale, could help
you achieve greater levels of satisfaction in both mood and health.
<Diane K.>Here in the
United States, we are increasingly
drinking bottled water, and many of us would not dare
drink tap water anymore, so sold are we on the idea
that bottled water is the only "safe" water to drink.
There are many types to choose from... "spring",
"purified", "distilled", some are labeled simply
"drinking", etc. Years ago, I spent some time
studying the Rosicrucian Teachings, part of which is
nutritional advice, and they strongly recommend
drinking distilled water only. Something about
minerals being good for the outside of the body, but
not for the inside, other than those that come from
fruits and vegetables.
What is the best
kind of water for us to drink,
especially with regard to mineral content?
<DaveGregg> We have a conundrum here. With the wide disparity in regulations
concerning both tap and bottled water, it would be inconclusive to say what kind
of water is better for you without evaluating each individual source. Even then,
we openly admit to not being authorities in this area of the physical plane.
In our experience, though, water
is chiefly used to replenish the body and wash away toxins that collect there.
The minerals you need come through the ingestion of food, not water. Since distilled water is the
purest form you can drink, we see nothing wrong in adding this kind of
water to your diet.
<Glenn> Comments concerning global warning and the possible
climate scenarios are most welcome. In MMFM, there were 10 scenarios for global
climate discussed. What are the 10 most probable these days?
<Frances> Will humanity be able to reverse the
melting of the ice caps soon enough to prevent catastrophe. What can individuals
do to make our governments make earth preservation a priority?
<DaveGregg> We see a
ponderous row of dominoes tumbling down, creating a momentum that could be
difficult to stop. All is not lost regarding your environmental concerns, but we
do wish to alert you that while your government officials and much of your
populace slumbered in denial, certain events were set into motion.
The probability that the
melting of the ice caps can be reversed is 50/50 at this point. You have been
poor stewards of your planet and a domino-like effect is
in play. The time to make amends is
A change of leadership would be
a positive step forward, but with self-serving politicians in both of your
political parties, there is no guarantee this will make a difference. On the
other hand, the powers that prevented an elected presidential candidate from
ascending to leadership in the 2000 election, partially blocked an agreement he
had to lead the world in making sweeping environmental changes. There are many
other fragments with similar agreements, but getting them into positions of
influence can be difficult.
There currently exists a
duality in your country that has hindered efforts to move forward on this issue.
Both sides are making choices commensurate with their perspective of the truth.
Barring a global catastrophe, finding the common ground is the only solution we
see that will result in much progress.
Regarding possible scenarios,
there are too many probabilities to consider.
We will say, however, that climatic predictions about global warming are being
Astrology and gambling. I myself am certainly not a gambling
man, I just don't have the personality for it. But, as a
theoretical astrologer, I have long thought that it might be
possible to increase one's possibility of winning at certain
casino games, such as roulette, by calculating the most
fortunate times using astrology. If astrology can indeed
predict when one is most likely to be lucky, then in the long
run (that is, over the course of hundreds of spins of the
roulette wheel, for example) it would be possible to increase
one's possibility of winning to over 50%, which would translate
into a lot of money. This idea, of course, is fascinating
from an economic viewpoint, but for me at least, its greatest
fascination lies in the possibility of "proving" astrology
statistically. And since money is involved, even the most
close-minded skeptics would be tempted to give it a try.
So my concrete question here is:
Is it indeed possible, when playing games such as roulette,
to increase the odds of coming out ahead in the end through
the use of astrology? And if so, which astrological techniques
would be most promising to calculate the most fortunate times:
transits, progressions, returns... and which planetary cycles
would prove most fruitful in this area?
<DaveGregg> In any game of chance, especially games found at most
gambling casinos, the mathematical odds will never be favorable. In fact, you
might have a better chance of being struck by lightning.
We do not think astrology would be of much use here, other than in a
peripheral sense. A better approach might be to learn how to manipulate probable
outcomes. Theoretically speaking, this involves altering the space-time
continuum until it's stacked in your favor. This, of course, is not an easy task
since you are competing with other fragments who are also, more or less, trying
to manifest probable outcomes in their favor. What you are looking at is
a study of conscious creation and there is a plethora of material on this subject
that you can review.
Can a person 'choose' to cycle off, re-emerge into "the Tao," transfer into a different evolutionary experience
elsewhere, or otherwise "graduate" from Earth cycles, without necessarily
completing all seven levels/soul ages??
And if so, (or not!) how, why, (or
not!) and under what circumstances might a fragment be able to be given such
an "opportunity"? Just wondering due to having heard a number of times from
different sources that this, (for me) is a "completion" lifetime..which
sometimes rings true, sometimes not..but the question still compels.
<DaveGregg> Cycling off
"mid-stream," so to speak, is possible, but it is practically never done.
Although you are free to choose and you exhibit this freedom of choice in every
thought you think and every action you take, you are a part of the Tao and that
ultimately makes you the master creator. In other words, you CHOSE to play this
We do see that this is a
completion lifetime for you, but not in the sense that you are ready to cycle
off. You are simply completing a special theme of lifetimes, which
certainly would give you a feeling of wrapping something up.
I am interested in knowing how a person might be
able to recognize their Task companion and Essence twin if they are alive,
other than asking the Michaels?
<DaveGregg> You may literally feel like a moth drawn to flame after
meeting an essence twin, but once together the experience can
a disturbing one.
You often choose an encounter with your essence twin when mutual benefit

another. Your essence twin, however, will

the opposite side of the coin, and you often recognize these
individuals by the astounding ease in which they compliment your life plans or
If Michael could please comment on the significance of casting
and Michael math as discussed in the early Michael books and by J.P. How may
we best apply these concepts to ordinary life?
Representing your true vibrational signature, casting is
simply your individual spark, thrust out of the primordial soup, so to speak, of
the Tao. This energetic imprint will be
your true identity in your journey through the various planes of experience.
Once you move beyond the
confines of the physical, your casting becomes even more prominent then your
role in some ways, and for this reason alone it merits special significance.
Michael math takes your
vibrational attributes a step further and demonstrates how the energetic
proclivities of your chosen overleaves might manifest. Students who find
themselves perplexed and don't see how their overleaves reflect the uniqueness
of their being, can find more pieces of their puzzle by studying how the
mathematical combinations of certain overleaves affect them energetically. These
tools help the student further define who they are.
We cannot necessarily say an
entire picture will be
revealed through the use of these tools, since the near astronomical variety of
choices available to a fragment can lead to an equally astronomical variety of
personal experiences. This can, in fact, often shape a personality in ways even
we do not entirely understand.
<Will> I don't know if this has already been addressed,
but I'd be interested to hear what Michael has to say
about the following topics:
- Crop Circles
- Extraterrestrials & Abductions
- The Bermuda Triangle
- Bigfoot & Chupacabra
- Pyramids of Egypt (how constructed)
- Stonehenge (purposes & how constructed)
- Spontaneous Human Combustion
Dave: These topics generated more answers that may challenge the
status quo in New Age groups. Once again, you are free to believe what you
want to believe. My mind is still open to possibilities in either direction,
but this is what I got during this particular session.
<DaveGregg> Some of
these topics have become the subject of considerable myth making, and before
we provide further illumination, it should be reminded that the use of Occam's Razor would serve you well here.

indeed abundant with life, we do not see a high probability of physical contact
with any extraterrestrial civilization in the near future.
In many ways extraterrestrials now
serve as the latest archetype of fear, mirroring the beliefs
and mindset of your culture. In earlier history your society was haunted by
hallucinations of evil spirits or the devil, and not surprisingly,
impressionable towns folk then believed they had been possessed by demons. Technological advances in your world have simply updated
the phenomena in the guise of alien abductions, giving a new face to old cultural fears and
We assure you that extraterrestrials have never abducted any life forms from
your planet. They would have no reason to do this. Their technology could
extract everything they need to know about your world in one infinitesimal
sample. Nightmares, hynogogic states, sleep paralysis, astral projection, are
all valid explanations to take into account when reviewing this data.
We ask you to
consider the following: What
lessons have you learned from history that you do not wish to repeat? How many steps
removed do you feel
you are from the phobias that gripped societies in the past? Alien
abductions are simply a cultural reincarnation of the same anxieties and fears that once led to
the wide-spread persecution of pagan cults and accusations of witchcraft. It is
your choice, of course, what you ultimately choose to believe. We just wish to
remind you that there are other choices to consider.
The Bermuda Triangle:
Many theories have been
proposed about this region, but we see that most of the disappearances have been
due to unusually large waves that caught seaman by surprise and swamped their
vessels. The area of the Bermuda Triangle is
particularly favorable to the formation of freak waves like this, and although
somewhat rare, these waves may tower as high as 80-100 feet.
There is also an intermittent magnetic flux in this region that can occasionally
disturb compasses and other sensitive equipment.
<Note from Dave>
For whatever reason I was feeling blocked around Bigfoot. I kept
getting conflicting messages that seemed to imply that Bigfoot did exist or once
HAD existed. I eventually gave up trying to sort the two out.
The Chupacabra has become the
latest archetype of fear in a culture known for it's superstitions and beliefs
in evil forces. This creature only exists in the minds of those that invented
While the monument was
indeed used as a calendar to track seasonal changes and mark the advent of
certain festivals, Stonehenge was
ultimately a symbol that represented nature's rebirth and fertility. To ancient
man, the cycle from one solstice to the other followed a progression of life and
death that coincided with varying degrees of light and darkness.
Ceremonies at Stonehenge marked
the consummation, if you will, between the earth and the sky. The earth goddess was
revered in these ceremonies and crops were
planted and harvested to follow these natural cycles of life, death, and
rebirth. These festivals also revered the ancestral past of those honored in the
community, serving as a vessel of communication between the Gods and the dead
which also included the burial of the dead.
Like the collaborative effort
of the Egyptian people, Stonehenge was constructed with the assistance of the
entire community. The construction phase actually went through several
incarnations that included different tribes. Each tribe had slightly different
reasons for using the megalith, which has caused considerable confusion for
historians attempting to determine the true purpose of the structure. Perhaps
the safest answer is that the purpose of Stonehenge was utilitarian at times,
depending on who was using it.
Spontaneous Human Combustion:
This effect isn't spontaneous at
all and is
the result of an external ignition source, such as a cigarette. On the whole
this in itself would not be
unusual, but in rare circumstances the fat in the body can slowly burn down without igniting anything else around it. If the body is
left undisturbed and allowed to burn until the fuel source runs out, it will
appear to the person who finds the charred remains that the victim's body
mysteriously burst into flames spontaneously.
<DaveGregg> Continuing our discussion about building the bridge, we will
conclude with this theme.
Once a bridge to another has
time for the real work to begin. Learning to spot energetic abrasions in certain
the next step here.
The solution sought by many is
to disassociate with those that feel abrasive, and instead seek those that
provide a more harmonious connection. This is
a choice, of course, and we will not say it is
the wrong one. There are,
however, other approaches to consider that could lead to building a bridge to
the greatest number of fragments possible.
Energetic abrasions in
overleaves generally fall into two categories: competing and abrading.
Competing overleaves occupy
positions where the energy of one overleaf will attempt to override the other and then energetically compete for center stage. Common examples are
two fragments who share overleaves such as dominance or power.
There will be
a tendency for these fragments to compete energetically when paired together.
These levels are
intensified when the overleaf of one of them slides to the negative pole. In
order to soften this abrasion, a useful exercise is
to project the positive pole of the overleaf to the fragment currently
entrenched in the negative pole. In other words, be
the mirror that reflects their true potential. Since energy tends to attract
like-energy, modeling the positive pole of a competing overleaf can gently nudge
the fragment back to a more appropriate position.
Abrading overleaves, on the
other hand, abrade due to the projection of negative poles that are
unusually discordant. Once again, temporarily adopting the positive pole of the
other fragment's overleaf can assist in nudging them back to where they belong.
We realize this could mean adopting an overleaf you are
not accustomed to sliding to, but this is
just a form of play-acting. You are,
in effect, leading by example.
Beyond the abrading qualities
of certain overleaves, past life residuals can be
another source of tension to hamper your bridge building efforts to another.
Barring unresolved karma,
easing this tension can be
accomplished in two ways: First, simply letting it go. We realize this may seem
like a frivolous suggestion, but often the greatest of problems are
solved with the simplest of solutions. If you're like most students, however,
you probably want a more substantial approach.
Following the theme of our
opening exercise, we offer further thoughts on healing old wounds:
Negative past life residuals
like thorns on a rose bush. Initially you may covet the person standing before
you for the delicate, vividly colored blooms they offer to the world; yet, when
you reach out to touch them, you brush against thorns and feel the pain of old
wounds. In nearly all circumstances, time is
the most reliable healer here. Past life tension gradually fades as the final
remnants from previously resolved karmic experiences lose their intensity. But
for those who would like to expedite the process, here's one modern-day solution
you could try -- go to the movies. Not literally, mind you, but figuratively
Begin with a meditation of your
choice. After you have sufficiently relaxed and quieted your mind, imagine that
you're seated next to a film projector and you're staring at a white screen. Now
imagine that you've flipped a switch on the projector and suddenly there's a
flickering image on the screen of the fragment you share past life abrasions
with. When you feel ready, ask to see the scene from the past that served as the
catalyst for your negative feelings. It doesn't matter if what you see is
different from what's exactly recorded in the Akashic records. It's the
emotional intensity of the experience that's important.
After you have reviewed the
scene and fully revisited any needed emotional experiences, stop the projector
and clear your mind of the previous images. Focus on the imaginary white screen
in front of you. Do this for as long as you deem necessary. When your brief
meditation feels complete, though, turn the projector once again, but this time
ask for a different outcome. You're the director of the film now and you have
total control. When the scene approaches in your movie that previously caused
duress, imagine a positive outcome instead. Imagine that your choice -- or the
choice of the other -- will
be different than before,
and instead of creating karma, you part amicably.
literally changing your past with this exercise. And now that your past has
changed, you are
free to let go of any apprehension and tension that you once experienced.
We will now conclude this session. May you find peace in your
