Opening Comments

<KarenMurphy> Take a moment with me now, if you will. Bring your awareness to your breath. Feel the rise and fall of your chest, your abdomen, as you breathe.

Take a moment also and give gratitude to the processes that make this action possible. Not every species has the ability to move energy through its body as you do. That brings your potential awareness of the physical plane to a point that few species match in any similar fashion. It is part of what makes you unique.

Revel for a moment then in your uniqueness, just as you marvel in your connectedness to all that there is. Bring the silence you are feeling within yourself, the stillness you now manifest, into your awareness of your own self. Remember this moment; it is unique among all others that you ever have or ever will experience, yet just in its uniqueness you also find much the same, do you not? That is part of the paradox of being human, of being extant on the physical plane.

 Remember, then, why you are here: to be. That is all; there is nothing more required.

<DaveGregg> Marjorie, you have the first question of the evening...

Q & A

<marjorieandpuppy> Good Evening Michael and Karen...could you please tell me my four trues.

<KarenMurphy> True Play: Watching smoke rise and the patterns made in the air and sky from this.
<KarenMurphy> True Rest: In concert with True Play in a way, feeling and becoming the rise and fall of each breath.
<KarenMurphy> True Study: Birds in flight and the patterns they make.
<KarenMurphy> True Work: Being at rest while everyone else around you struggles, and in so doing creating change within the group.

<marjorieandpuppy> Ouch...that made me want a cig (just quit a few months ago)! Thank you!

<KarenMurphy> A reminder about the Trues: For many people there is more than one set...a set can change through the lifetime also. A lot of it depends on many various factors, but it's good to keep in mind that more than one channel can "get" more than one set of Trues, and they all may resonate, being used for different purposes at different times.

<DaveGregg> Ocean, you're next...

<Ocean1> Hi, my name is Cheryl L. Could you tell me my role, soul age, life task, and four trues, please?

<KarenMurphy> Mature Scholar-Warrior.

True Play: Deciphering the expressions of others (facial).
True Rest: Sexual banter.
True Study: Denying the perceptions of others as regards yourself so as to more closely evaluate your own.
True Work: Taking the ideas of others farther a field.
 Life Task: To learn through the expression of the overleaves, especially as regarding the relationships of those closely allied to you.

<Ocean1> Thank you, much of that resonates deeply, and much to process as well. 
<DaveGregg> Geraldine, you're next...

<GeraldineB> Good evening, Karen and Michael. I'd like to know more about those who are acting as my Guides -- such as what names they go by, my past relationships to them, etc. Whatever comes through that expands my understanding of them.

<KarenMurphy> Geraldine, firstly you have a grandmotherly woman in your vicinity at almost all times. This is your perception of her although there was never that actual relationship between you in this progression (however note that she exists AS a grandmother for you in a parallel that is very split from you at this time). This would be what we would at this time consider to be the "main" guide for you. This is the persona you go to for comfort, knowledge, guidance, etc. All others mainly funnel their energy through "hers", because that is the system that works.

However, note that should you determine to become more open to the other energies, you would gain an appreciation of their presence as well, though it would likely not be recognizable to you as human. We submit that this is quite a lot of information for you to "chew on" at this time, and that you will "know" what to do with it [humorously]

<GeraldineB> Thank you and yes :)
<DaveGregg> Lori S., you're next...

<LoriS_> I would like to know what issues I've brought from recently previous lives into this one to work on?

<KarenMurphy> The main issue we see that is coming to the forefront at this time and for the next, say, ten years or so, has to do with confidence and body issues. That is not to say that these are the ultimate issues chosen to carry through to this lifetime, but that shall likely be a focus in surprising ways. Another lesser but in many ways more "important" issue had to do with modes of abandonment and how the theme can be played out in a myriad of ways, from both sides of the "fence".

We see that there may be somewhat unwarranted concerns in this area and we would like to remind you that the overriding energy focus on the issue is, again, one chosen to be brought to this lifetime and NOT necessarily one that has arisen from circumstances or relationships that arose in this life. In other words, we wish to assist in dispelling some of the fears that may surround this issue for you, and assist you with obtaining an objectivity that may become helpful.

<LoriS_> Are any fragments from those lives here in this one now, or to be soon?

<KarenMurphy> [smiling] but of course. We wish to inject levity into the situation for you, which at this time may feel dark and heavy. Remember this was a choice, and there are choices to grow through joy as well as pain.

<LoriS_> Wow and thank you very much!
<DaveGregg> Laughingboi, you're next...;-)

<laughingboi> My name is Christine B. and I would like to know my four trues as well...and to just give a holler of thanks for any help from my guides I might have been receiving in my life as of late.

<KarenMurphy> True rest: watching and feeling sir currents move through fabric, such as curtains.
<KarenMurphy> True Play: pillow fights!
<KarenMurphy> True Study: memorizing traits of the various peoples of the earth.
<KarenMurphy> True Work: (btw, that's "air" currents, up above) categorizing people through the perception of the old soul.

<laughingboi> That's pretty cool...Thank you Karen and Michael.
<DaveGregg>  Jeremy, you're next...

<Jeremy> Hello Karen and Michael, my name is Jeremy S., I would like to know my life task and four trues, please.

<KarenMurphy> Life Task: understanding nature through the study of people and animals.
<KarenMurphy> True Rest: Play with dolphins.
<KarenMurphy> True Play: Making light of people using characterizations found in books.
<KarenMurphy> True Study: Physics and the nature of being.
<KarenMurphy> True Work: Getting other people to laugh by whatever means possible.

<Jeremy> Thank you very much!!!
<DaveGregg> Dan, you're next...

<dan> Has the US government ever launched a terrorist attack against its own people?

<KarenMurphy> Yes.

<dan> When and where?

<KarenMurphy> For effect, for various purposes. Several times, as have many governments around the world through the centuries. This is not uncommon. These are small-scale actions designed to take place unobtrusively.

<DaveGregg> Sophia, you're next...

<sophia> Greetings Michael and Karen. Would you please tell me my life task?

<KarenMurphy> To bring softness to those around you by mitigating energetically the harshness of the physical experience.

<sophia> Hmmm...

<KarenMurphy> Wow, that's beautiful, what a gift.

<sophia> How so?  I'm sorry I'm not trying to be dingy on purpose.

<KarenMurphy> It sounds like you make everyone's life around you easier, more pleasant. You do this without knowing it. Just by being you. As you get older you will continue to fall into it more.

<sophia> How do I help my daughter?

<KarenMurphy> There are further connections between you, that have some other polarities and friction. It is not an easy relationship at this time. Rest assured that this is yet another choice made by each of you, and the issues you chose to have presented in this life were also chosen. Although the bond is strong, we see that this has not been an easy pairing, despite the many significant lives shared in the past.

<sophia> Thanks kindly.
<DaveGregg> Dlmrry, you're next...

<dlmrry44> Hello, I'm Dianne M., I would like to know my life task, and why do I keep seeing the #11 over and over?

<KarenMurphy> To restate things for others in ways that aids in clarity.

<KarenMurphy> We would like to comment at this time on some of the conjecture that occurs on the observance of patterns, especially found in numbers, that may feel of personal relevance to various fragments.

In general, while there is no general relevance or meaning to certain sets or patterns of numbers, we have observed that many fragments enjoy using this "shorthand" method as a way of feeling in communication with essence.' In other words, if and when there is a pattern or number that feels of personal and special relevance to you, we would suggest going to a listening space if possible to determine whether there is a message for you from essence. In many cases, we would say that there is. It may then serve as a reminder to "go" to that quiet space wherein you can listen and observe for yourself what messages or communication there may be for you from various hidden sources.

<dlmrry44> Thank you
<DaveGregg> Littlestar, you're next...

<littlestar> Hello, Karen and Michael. I'm Linda P. I would like to know about my Life Task and where or how on this planet would be best for me to live to meet any mate or other agreements/contracts that I still have, if there are any.

<KarenMurphy> Life Task: To remember as much as possible from before, during, and after in order to compare notes with the present. Number of remaining mate agreements: 3. 1 - southeastern US; 2 - eastern Europe; 3 - central/southern US (desert).

<littlestar> Is there any special way(s) of fulfilling these contracts not just mate? Work? I assume each of those places has a personal agreement mate potential...

<KarenMurphy> The places are where the fragments with whom you hold mate agreements presently live. You have of course many, many other agreements, with fragments incarnate and discarnate.

<littlestar> And I do not yet know who these fragments are...

<KarenMurphy> No, that's part of the fun. [smile]

<littlestar> You have cheered me up quite a bit. I will look to understand the contracts. Thanks
<DaveGregg> Maggie, you're next...

<heinzemaggie> Karen & Michael!! It's Maggie, a 3/5 3rd Mature Sage w/ King casting.

<KarenMurphy> And do you ever know how to enter a room! (with much appreciation for the Sageness). What's your question tonight, Maggie?

<heinzemaggie> I'd like to know about my history & current status w/ the man Charles F. - plus his role & age

<KarenMurphy> The man Charles F. is a 7th Young Scholar, with whom you have had dealings before, notably in the 17th century when you were both aboard a pirate ship belonging ostensibly to Spain (though you were French). This man double-dealt you and played you at your own game, rendering you penniless. You never knew who had double-crossed you and so remained steadfast his friend and ally until his untimely death some years later.

<heinzemaggie> Is there a particular facet to us I should pay attention to while I live here - in his service a bit?

<KarenMurphy> A part of him still sees you as that easy "mark" and so wishes to gain what he can from this relationship, not understanding that you mean well as you did the other, previous time. It is his choice whether or not to embark on a more further understanding of who you really are.

<heinzemaggie> There is no current agreement then?

<KarenMurphy> There is an aspect of making good on what was done before, nothing so strong as karma of course, simply a recognitions factor. This is optional.

<heinzemaggie> Thanks :-)
<DaveGregg> Communicatrix, you're next...

<communicatrix> Hi, Karen & Michael. Colleen W., here. Can you give me some relevant history w/ the fragment Trevor M.?

<KarenMurphy> The fragment now known to you as Trevor was once a lover who spurned your advances. This occurred in imperial China in about the 16th century. The fragment now Trevor was a well-known courtesan and you were an aspiring magistrate hoping for a "leg up" into the realm of high stakes finance. It did not come about and you blamed this woman for your failings, then later set about to poison her. The plot did not come about however and you were found out and made to leave the region, leaving your young family behind. There are therefore some issues of guilt and betrayal surrounding this relationship. Although there was no karma earned or burned in that lifetime, the strings draw you closer and there feels an aspect of inevitability about the relationship, similar to that of a karmic relationship.

There are options, of course, and we would suggest examining the needs of security and trust in order to delve further into this relationship if that is what you desire.

<communicatrix> Well, we've clearly dispensed with a nice chunk of something this time around! Thanks for the advice. Spot on, my good entities!
<DaveGregg> John M, you're next...

<John_M> Good evening, Michael and Karen. I am John M., a Warrior-cast, mid-level Old Priest. I am curious to know whether I am a member of a quadrant, sextant, or other similar grouping of fragments?

<KarenMurphy> Hi John, You are indeed the member of two such groupings.

One we would term as "less active", in that there are no "big" plans to either meet or work while you are incarnate in this lifetime. This is a quadrant, the other members of which are all incarnate and are basically awaiting your demise in order to work further. [smile]

The other group is looser yet much more active and takes hold of many of your waking and sleeping hours, and sextant with which you are almost constantly involved. You "feel" the presence of these fragments frequently and have oft times thought of them as entity mates; however these are your sextant-mates, and you are all rather intimate by this time, having spent a previous grand cycle together working as well.

<John_M> Thank you kindly, Karen and Michael!
<DaveGregg> Vince, you're next...

<Vince-1> I'm Vincent S. I've noticed when meeting new people for the first time that there seems to be some form of energy exchange during the first few minutes of meeting. It almost feels as though we are two mirrors, uniquely reflecting aspects of each others personality. The energy feels unique to each two people. Could Michael provide insight into what's happening and how to optimally approach new meetings?

<KarenMurphy> Vincent, we see that you have a relatively high frequency. This will result in quite a "blast" of energy both coming and going when you meet other fragments. We do not see this as necessarily something that is to be avoided, but perhaps noted. You may wish to determine which types of fragments seem to bask in the energy as opposed to shying away from it. That will assist you in assessing how best to alter your own output when in a new situation.

<Vince-2> Okay, thank you.
<DaveGregg> Gray, you're next...

<Gray> Old Artisan Michael T. here, Hello Karen and Michael. There is a new member to the Michael Teachings list named Markus W. I had a strong resonance from this fragment. I was hoping that Michael would elaborate through you Karen as to what past life experiences he and I have had that causes this resonance

<KarenMurphy> The fragment now known to you as Markus was a daughter in a very very very ancient lifetime, one where people had not been "people" for long, in relative earth-year terms. There is a sense of loss and recovery via this fragment, also a sense of knowingness about the universe and the earth that far transcends anything that is generally considered "known" in terms that are of your present world today. So there was a simplicity and a complexity, both of which you long for in certain circumstances, when you allow yourself to slip past the boundaries of what is accepted as 'reality" in your present terms.

This fragment, then, is serving as a touchstone, a reminder, of what was and what still, despite appearances, IS. We remind each of you, then, that there is MORE THAN WHAT APPEARS, in terms of reality. If you accept this, then you will likely begin to see differences, and allow them to create further change, both for yourself and for the world.

<Gray> Thank you very much.
<DaveGregg> Jane, you have tonight's last question...

<janie> Recently, my two daughters have been 'visited' by a deceased uncle. He 'appeared' to my one daughter, and seemed to be talking at various times to another. While I believe this is possible, for some reason, I feel that his 'appearances' are not a good thing, and it disturbs me...can you enlighten me on this?

<KarenMurphy> You have lived lifetimes as one beset by mental illness, determined to put from yourself the scenes and knowledge that you saw in that lifetime that others did not. It was a fearful lifetime, many lifetimes, and you have not recovered from that mindset fully, even as you "know" that what appears is simply a construct of energy and only holds the reality that you give to it. In addition, you also spent a life being persecuted for the things you saw and even did not see that others placed upon you, thought of you. it was yet another fearful time.

We will say now, however, that the need to protect yourself from these fears is not at hand at this time. This visitation was not meant to inspire fear or alarm, in fact was meant to inspire to opposite.

 You may ask, any time there is a construct in your vicinity, from whence it comes, and it's name. If it cannot answer, it has no power over you and therefore may be dismissed. Your uncle was merely performing a routine check upon your family before moving along to another scenario in his between-life world. There, again, is nothing to fear unless you choose to.

<janie> Does this mean that my daughter's do not need to have concern about these visitations to them? that it is just my own fears...? This was my daughter's uncle, not mine.

<KarenMurphy> Nevertheless, the effect is the same. The fear is yours, not coming from any other source.

<janie> Okay....... thank you so much.......
<DaveGregg> Do you have any closing comments, Karen?

<KarenMurphy> We wish to add words upon what has already been said, about the nature of reality. We could and will write books about this, and there have been books before. Suffice it to say that there are volumes of words available to you about the nature of reality and how to manipulate it.

So what words to choose now? [smiling]

We wish simply to remind you that you Are Here. There is nothing more, not if you understand. You. Are. Here. Which means,

1.) You chose to be "here". 
2.) You are "here", as opposed to somewhere else.
3.) And, you can make other choices. You can make "here" be "not-here". And you can make "you" be "not-you".

These are all valid choices, and ones we hope to discuss with your further at some other times. For now, then, we wish to remind you that you are indeed Here, and that you made a complicated set of choices that resulted in this. A beautiful, yet somehow marvelously coincidental set of coincidences, don't you think?

Be joyous then, that you are, indeed, Here. We thank you and as always, wish you well. Good night.

<DaveGregg> Thank you, Karen and Michael. Kathryn sends her gratitude, too. She had to leave early.
<janie> Love to Michael, and to Karen and Dave.
<Carrot_wax> Thank you Karen/Michael!
<communicatrix> Thanks for a fascinating evening w/ much to ponder elsewhere.
<susantheoboist> Thank you!
<heinzemaggie> Thanks Karen Gregg & Michael, good night.
<Jeremy> spot on! Thank you very much, Karen and Michael.
<LoriS_> Thank you so much, Michael, Karen and Dave :)
<marjorieandpuppy> Thank you and love to you!
<liiona24> Thanks and good evening.
<laughingboi> Thanks....it was such a nice vibe tonight....not too sleepy and not too heavy.
<John_M> Thank you Dave, Karen, and Michael-- those closing words were splendid. Namaste
<KarenMurphy> Thanks, everyone, as usual a lovely group tonight.
