<LightSpring> Tonight we
would speak to you, if we may, about channeling. You have read and you have been
told time and again that each of you possesses a connection to us.
This connection is something that is maintained whether
or not you are conscious of it. As one of our students of any degree, you have
access to our energy and to the information we can touch at all times. Getting
there, however, is sometimes a different matter entirely. All of you possess the
ability to connect with us consciously and to receive information to some
extent. All of you - without exception - possess this ability.
We would like to speak to you tonight, then, a little about how you can enhance
and perhaps personalize your connection to us. We will outline an exercise that
you can perform at some later time, however since it involves closing your eyes,
it will be difficult to both read and perform the exercise at the same time.
However, you will be affected by the energy as you are reading it tonight. And
you can then tap into the feeling you have now later on when you re-read the
exercise and perform it for yourself.
Close your eyes, and as you do so imagine that you are closing the windows to a
deep, dark starry sky, filled with an infinite number of stars as far as the
mind can reach. As you close your eyes, then, you realize and recall how vast
the universe is - how vast that starry sky. Close your eyes, then, and think
about your own vastness inside those windows. How very big you are! And how your
energy stretches out beyond you in all different directions to meet and mingle
with the energy of everyone and everything else. You are constantly touching
everything around you. And inside those closed eye windows you have awareness of
this. You feel the bigness of this inside the room that is your mind's eye.
Remember, then, that we are part of that energy you touch, and your bigness
stretches out to reach ours.
Feel it now as we touch. See what this feels like in your body, in your heart.
Is it overwhelming? Is it joyous? Are there physical sensations? We are touching
you right now. What does this feel like to you? What pictures form in your mind?
What thoughts arise from this experience?
Take a moment, then, to inscribe indelibly upon your being what this experience
is for you. You will then be able to refer back to it at any time that you
choose. Simply by closing your eyes and asking to feel this connection again.
For some of you, this will come easily. You are used to feeling these
connections and remembering them. For others, the ability is just as present but
the belief in it is not. It is up to you to provide that belief, for the
connection is always present for you. Are there any questions or comments
<melinda> Thank you. I'll be working on this technique. Right now, I feel heady
and a little out of my body.
<ChrisP> I feel nothing. But I am a very skeptical person :)
<laughingboi> Yes, how do skeptics overcome their own skepticism?
<ocean-cheryl> I feel filled with energy and great joy, big smile on my face...
and my ears are pounding :)
<KathyDV> I feel very heavy and extra grounded...like solid.
<avatar415> Is this an astral connection?
<Jyoti_Shah> Its like an loving energy enveloping me and saying" There for you"
<mark> It's saying "how can we help you?" to me.
<KathyDV> To me, it feels like we just invite in the energy that is always there
for the asking.
<LightSpring> That's exactly
For those of you who are feeling some difficulty with this exercise, it may be
that it is a life choice that your connection with us being such as we be mainly
an intellectual one, and that is a valid choice. We recommend if you are
interested in feeling more of a connection that you pretend that you do for a
period of time and see what happens.
We are ready now for questions if everyone would like to move on to them.
<DaveGregg> Francois, you have the first question
Q & A
<francois_p> My Essence Twin was channeled as a Priest, incarnate female. Do we
know each other in this life? If not can Michael tell me about her? Thanks.
<LightSpring> This fragment lives presently in the
southern part of the state of Georgia. She reincarnated approximately 20 years
ago, and prior to that held a relatively strong connection with you from the
astral plane. You may have noticed a shift in your life occurring at about that
time. There are no plans at this time to meet in your present lifetime.
<DaveGregg> Ocean-Cheryl, you're next...
<ocean-cheryl> About a month ago I was contacted
by an inventor opening a toy factory. I had owned a toy store in the past, and
he wanted my advice. I've been consulting on the toy with him since then, and
though we started out a bit adversarial, once we earned each other's respect we
have become pretty good friends. What is the past life history and relationship
between C. and myself? Do we have any agreements, monads or karma we are working
on this life together? I enjoy the project, and am hopeful it will eventually
provide income, and I am drawn to his children as well, especially 8 year old E.
and 3 year old A.
<LightSpring> It appears that there is an agreement in
this life that is karmic in nature. In the past, you were rival chieftains in
the north of Scotland. There was much warring between you and he eventually
stole from you land, cattle, and several women of your clan, including one of
your daughters. These actions were relatively common in that place and time, but
it did hurt you not only emotionally but also financially, and as you were
getting older, you found it difficult to recoup what you had lost. It was not
long afterwards that a younger member of the clan staged a coup and moved you
out of your leadership position.
The intent towards the karmic repayment in this life is likely to help provide
you with financial stability and a sense of groundedness in interacting with
another family. Although there is some tension, there is a greater amount of
contentment and peace found within this man's energy for you.
<ocean-cheryl> fascinating... so the project has a good chance of success?
<LightSpring> Success from our perspective is a
relative term. We would say that repayment of karma and associated growth
experience are to us considered successful. However, on the physical plane there
could well be some pain involved with karmic repayment and when any growth and
learning takes place.
<ocean-cheryl> Thanks very much
<DaveGregg> Lou, you're next...
<lou> My eldest daughter is to give birth to a
son any day now. do you see when it will be and what would be the relations
Michaels wise between us3 it is a anxious time for us because the weather is bad
and the roads are not good.
<LightSpring> The birth of any child acts as a
catalyst, moving those around him into a completely different space and
awareness. We see this birth as likely being no different. There are ties from
the past among you, ties that serve not only to bind you more closely but
sometimes also to confuse relationships. Children especially retain some
awareness of where and who they have been before, and sometimes find it baffling
to find themselves with familiar energy yet among unfamiliar faces.
You were never all three together in a single time and place. However, the
energy of any two of you is certainly familiar enough, having touched one
another in a number of lifetimes. We see at this time nothing notable that holds
on from a previous lifetime, only that sense of comfortable familiarity that
grows between fragments who have interacted with one another before.
<lou> I do not understand cathalyst
<LightSpring> A catalyst is an agent of change, a cause
of changes. In your daughter's case there will be some difficulties making room
for the new energy of this new being. Adjustments will have to be made. How
strongly the ripples from accepting a new person into the family affect everyone
else depends on a variety of factors that are difficult to accurately pinpoint
at this time, but we can say that change will come and that perceptions will be
affected and these could of course lead to further changes as time goes on.
<lou> merci beaucoup
<DaveGregg> Jyoti, you're next...
<Jyoti_Shah> Do I have an essence connection with
P. (female). Are we traveling companions or task companions, with some
pre-incarnational agreements, monads or karma issues to resolve together?
<LightSpring> You have spent several lifetimes
together. The one that resonates most clearly for you at this time is when she
was your mother. This occurred in more than one lifetime as you explored
different ways of interacting within the confines of a similar relationship. As
a result, there is a great deal of love and acceptance between you that
transcends time and social norms.
In this lifetime, you chose to interact again on a more equal basis while
allowing that parent-child relationship to act as an underlying sense of
nurturing and acceptance. There is a mutual agreement to share individual
spiritual explorations and to merge energies so as to enhance your individual
understanding of the cosmos and of your selves.
<Jyoti_Shah> No wonder I always feel safe when she is around. She has a warrior
kind of energy, protective and caring. Yes that is true, we do share spiritual
explorations together and expand on our understanding. It explains one of the
past lives she saw me in when she went through a PLR
<DaveGregg> Melinda, you're next...
<melinda> I’d like to learn about my life task
and how to move ahead despite harsh criticism from a small (but loud!) group of
detractors. I let this criticism get to me because, as a Scholar, I wonder if
they have valid points beneath the angst. I’d love to know more about my life
task so I can walk tall when the going gets tough. Thank you!
<LightSpring> For you we would like to explain a little
of how a life task may manifest. Your task, if we were to put it succinctly,
would be: allowing the energy of others to permeate you while at the same time
you give yours; in other words, you are an agent of interaction. As you can
imagine, there is almost an infinite number of ways this can manifest in a given
lifetime. Often such tasks are chosen over a course of a number of lifetimes,
each one with correspondingly different overleaf choices, to examine how the
task might change given other influences, and what can be learned from that.
In your case, this is the third time you have chosen a similar life task. Each
time you have done so it looked and felt different. In the present lifetime, you
are somewhat reticent about allowing the energy of others to touch yours, and
this causes some amount of tension within you as you at the same time attempt to
allow that energy in because it is a life choice to do so. You have chosen such
conflict in order not to "get over" it, but simply to allow its lessons to be
present for you. Your essence is just as happy to be present with the lesson as
it is to "learn" something from it, as there is learning, of course, in either
For you, then, the learning in acknowledging that tension and from what source
it comes is likely a greater lesson than would be learning to think you are
liking or are comfortable with others' energy in the way you think you should.
Learning and growth from the life task, then, is simply in the ATTEMPT, not so
much in the RESULT.
<melinda> My dad used to call me a sparkplug (my first understanding of the term
"catalyst"). This really helps me to feel that I can be more gentle with myself.
<DaveGregg> SandyW, you're next...
<SandyW> I have a question about my mom, D. She
has been having some puzzling health problems and within the past several months
has been transfused with 3-4 pints of blood every month. There is no obvious
bleeding and despite innumerable tests, the doctors cannot find the cause of her
continually worsening "anemia". Can Michael shed some light on what is going on
<LightSpring> It appears that your mother is dealing
with some preconceived notions that she has carried in this lifetime regarding
the decline in old age and the gradual lessening of the physical body and spirit
during the aging process. As a result, she has for some time been manifesting
ways to allow her body to deteriorate slowly and gradually. It would appear that
it is a strong life choice for her to experience such a gradual, and to her,
Treatments of various sorts can be helpful but it appears at this time that a
long term solution would be difficult due to, as we said, a strong life choice
on D's part to experience a gradual decline in her physical being. We
acknowledge that this is the sort of experience one fears to witness in someone
else, and that doing so is likely painful for most others around her.
<SandyW> thank you, I can accept it whether the rest of the family can or not
<DaveGregg> Daniel, you're next...
<DanielE> Can you tell me about my ET? I have I
felt some issues of acceptance with him or her (because the warrior energy,
which conflicts with my priest). Is my ET the fragment known as Z. If not, will
I meet my ET and can you tell me more bout him or her? Are there agreements in
<LightSpring> We would say that the energetic conflict
you are perceiving stems mainly from your preconceptions of male energy and your
reaction to that. This comes from your relationship with your father. You are
then perceiving warrior-like aspect of yourself that you are attempting to deny,
thinking that to embrace it would somehow change or deny the gentleness that you
acknowledge within you.
We can assure you that this is not the case. In other words, for you, this
warrior energy enhances, for instance, your role in essence, by allowing the
far-seeing priest to feel nurturing and protective of his flock. In addition,
the warrior energy grounds you somewhat and brings you down a bit from the
heavens so that you can interact with the other "mere mortals" on Earth.
Your essence twin is at present a female child and there seems to be some
potential for meeting at some point during your lifetime. However, at presents
there are no clear-cut agreements to do so.
<DanielE> Thank you Michael and Karen!
<DaveGregg> Mark T, you're next...
<mark_t> I know that in my last life, some of my
cadence members shared a very similar life experience in Poland. Are there
members of my cadence in my life this time? Have I met them? Will I meet them.
Can you give me names?
<LightSpring> Of the six other members of your cadence,
two are presently discarnate. The four remaining do not at present interact with
one another or, so far, with you. However, it would appear that over the past
two years you have begun to form on an astral level various projects and also
have been attempting to forge some agreements to interact on the physical plane.
At present, we would say these are tenuous at best, but there does seem to be a
pull to attempt to meet at least in pairs at least in pairs at some point. You
are situated geographically close enough so that this could be possible. In
other words, you are all at present located either in North America, Western
Europe, or the Pacific Rim.
<mark_t> Thank you so much!
<DaveGregg> Deborah, you're next...
<Deborah_D> I was raised Catholic, but I guess
you might say I have shed that imprinting. I wondered if Michael could comment
on the stories of Mary, the mother of Jesus, supposedly appearing to children,
such as at Fatima and Lourdes. What actually happened in these 2 places?
<LightSpring> When enough collective energy is focused
on the perpetuation of the existence of an actual person, this spirit-being
begins to take on a life of its own. Each of you, upon your death, leaves behind
an energetic imprint. Typically these dissipate over time as the reality of you
is allowed to dissipate with people's memories and their understanding of death
and physical reality. However, as we said, if there is a great deal of
collective energy brought to focus on a particular person after their death,
then that person "lives on", after a fashion.
Mother Mary, being the embodiment of Love for many people throughout history,
has taken on a certain degree of reality. People who are energetically sensitive
and who have cultivated a strong belief in her existence, as well as a desire to
connect to her energy, have been able to have awareness of her energy in such a
way as she would appear completely real and life-like. This is what occurred in
these two locations, as well as in many others around the world. In other words,
what was seen may be thought of as an apparition, however, there was a great
deal of elements of reality about what the children saw, felt, and understood.
It is only through your particular perception of reality that you do not see the
leftover energetic imprints of dead people. But then are present and "real",
just the same.
<Deborah_D> Thank you. That does make sense.
<DaveGregg> Lisa F, you're next...
<LisaF> I was wondering if there are any mate
agreements or other agreements with G. and is he a Task companion?
<LightSpring> We would agree that the man known to you
is one of three task companions for you. It appears, however, that you are
having a "rest life" in terms of working on a task with him. In other words,
this is a bond of comfort and familiarity as well as laughter, rather than the
facilitation of a particular project. That is not to say that the energy between
you does not lend itself toward working together well, but your task companion
projects in this lifetime are engaged with your other task companions.
<LisaF> Do we have any agreements?
<LightSpring> Again, it appears that this is a
connection of mostly familiarity rather than striving to work on something in
particular at this time.
<DaveGregg> Renee, you're next...
<Renee> I'm hoping you can tell me anything about
my father, who just passed, Dec, 3, 2007. Also, anything about the nature of our
relationship and the relationship with his immediate family (my other siblings).
<LightSpring> This was a somewhat reserved and
secretive man whose outward appearance often belied his sense of holding burdens
and the resulting inner pain he felt from this. He was unsure about the strength
of some of his qualities and never saw himself the way that others viewed him.
Others took his reserve as strength, whereas for him, it was a way of keeping
himself distant because it's what he thought he had to do. That did not diminish
the love he felt for those around him, but it made it difficult to connect with
all of him because he found it difficult to connect with himself.
His relationship with other family members, therefore, was one somewhat built on
pretense. There is no judgment when we say this. only an understanding that it
is easy to become caught up in how you perceive someone else and interact with
them solely on that basis, rather than interacting with their completeness. If
someone feels inwardly complete, then they can bring all of themselves to the
interaction, which makes it deeper and more intimate for everyone.
<Renee> My dad appeared to be nothing close to reserved. can you try to explain
<LightSpring> Again, we say that his outward appearance
belied his inner feeling of reserve and disconnection. It would appear that he
took great pains to appear and feel jovial and lighthearted.
<Renee> That makes much more sense.
<DaveGregg> Lori S, you're next...
<LoriS> Another Michael student, C. and I have
found ourselves sharing an apartment after an amazing set of life circumstances
for each of us. We know we have had many past lives together from previous
channeling, but we would like to know the nature of our agreements/karma for
this life. My life has completely changed in the last six months. What part does
Cheryl play in this and the future?
<LightSpring> Having been sisters in previous
lifetimes, you chose to draw some of that energy forward to complete some
elements of that relationship left over from a previous lifetime. In that
lifetime, your lives were cut short when you were out walking the fields
surrounding your family's English estate and a marauding band of renegade
soldiers happened upon you and ended your lives. At the time, you had agreements
to complete certain growth and support experiences in that lifetime, and those
are what you are drawing from and acting upon at this time. In other words,
there was support agreements to share experiences and aid one another's
<LoriS> Thank you, Michael and Karen!
