<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We are moved by the passion that we see evident among many of the
various members of these groups. We see this passion as a symbolic source of the
amazing and never-ending source of Love that resides within each of you. That such emotion arises among you at times is simply, then, a
sign of the deep caring you feel toward one another as a whole, and the pulls in
various directions that you feel from living in different perceptions. There are among you, as you have been made at time almost
painfully aware, differing perspectives and perceptions. That you gather
together despite these is in itself a small miracle. But gather you do, and
have, and will continue to do, for it is only through real connection with
others and with your innermost selves that you will address the lessons you are
here to enjoy.
We see that there has been much growth, movement, and fluctuation
within the small community of online interacting students that is in a way a
microcosm representation of the larger student population. As with any group,
squabbles arise, and from them growth occurs or energy shifts or students fall
away or are attracted. It is much like any other group of humans who come
together for any purpose. There is no message in this interaction; we see it as the
necessary result of the medium and of the varying perceptions that reside within
the group's population.
For the future, we have stated before that in order for the growth
to increase, and by growth we do not necessarily refer to sheer numbers of
students although a growth there could well be a result of other growth, then the number and frequency of in-person interactions will need
to increase as well.
These meetings, or gatherings, provide an important touch point
that some students require in order to continue moving through their lessons
that deal with a group dynamic. We have seen how important that dynamic is to
some, and it is mainly these students who will continue to seek out a more
personal venue of interaction. As such, we see that there well could be an
increase of smaller more local groups who band together to interact, study, and learn from one another.
However, by dividing students into smaller populations, a larger number of
varying directions will ensue for a time. This could feel chaotic to some
students, but we see that many will find reassurance in the reminder that
*everything* changes, everything fluctuates, everything moves.
Indeed, we see that a larger number of smaller, local, in-person
groups will truly enhance the exponential quality to the growth we see occurring
in all probability among our students over the next ten years. Students will as
a result become more confident in their own connections to us and to other
teachers, and may find themselves more confidently teaching themselves and
others rather than relying blindly on receiving information through
others. In other words, the very act of channeling or of being a channel
will change in direction and definition. It was never our intention to appear to
withhold information or to create a feeling of "specialness" among those whose
connection to us was more strong or more consistent. It was always our intention
that we are available at all times to any who ask, and it is one of our internal
goals that more students feel this openness.
What has been built among you is, indeed, of import, and we see
that the changes most likely to occur over the next several years will likely be
just as fulfilling, interesting, and hopefully also entertaining to you, our
students. We wish you a growthful ten years. We are ready for questions.
<ocean_cheryl> what can we as students do to invite a deeper connection with the
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> Each of you, of course, has a different connection with us.
Mechanically and energetically, there are differences too numerous to go into.
However, in general, we suggest that by becoming more open to yourself and your
own internal workings, you may increase your connection to other energies such
as ours. That is not to imply that those who have a deep connection are any more
evolved or "better" in any way than students who struggle with a connection,
but openness is surely a key in establishing or maintaining a strong connection
with other energies. We invite each of you, then, to attempt to be as open as
possible towards us and we in turn shall make a point of approaching each of you
present this evening in such a way that will be evident and increasingly
meaningful to you, if you wish.
<ShannonB> You speak of where we, the students, might be going in the next 10
years, but what about Michael, what do they have planned for "themselves"? Is
there new or unknown information that they intend to make known in the very near
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We do not wish to attempt to guide you as a group through your
learning process, but at the same time realize that there does appear a pattern
of growth in the presenting of new information and the direction that takes the
overall student community. This direction is provided not by us but by the tacit
agreement of the student community as a whole. The likelihood, then, of a great
deal of new information coming to the attention of the student
population over the relatively near future is rather high at this time given the
present direction of interest among the students.
<Elo-Maria> What has been the most challenging thing for you when working with
us during last ten years?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> The scope of our internal challenges remains somewhat
difficult to express in physical-plane terms, but simply put, in many ways we
mirror the growing pains that are experienced by the group known as our
students. There is, of course, learning involved for us in this process as well,
and we have indeed grown through this time spent with you.
<order> What you have written up above seems to be in conflict with the sense of
community the Michaels have always engendered. Could you please comment on
<Karen Murphy> Order, I'm not sure which material above you feel is in conflict?
<order> The opening round on the internet
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We did not state or mean to imply that there would be a
of the community that exists and has always existed among you, the greater
population of students throughout the world. But the electronic medium is
somewhat limiting; interaction via words alone is lacking in depth and warmth,
and it is only via real, in-person contact that true connection can be made.
Moving toward a time of smaller, in-person groups will only serve
to enhance connections made among the students as a whole; many of you have
already experienced through gatherings or other in-person connections, and these
will likely increase in number and popularity, as they serve to provide a
touchstone that students can then take back to their places of residence and
then use to enhance the electronic interaction such as this gathering tonight.
Those of you who have met one another in "real life" are aware of the energetic
difference between those you have met and those you have not yet met. This seeming
division will only serve to further enhance the
strength and connection of the community, and will also serve, in all
likelihood, to add members to the "fold". Obviously, we are referring to change
here and there are those who are uncomfortable with change. This, again, may
feel chaotic to some for a time, but the overall effect will serve to grow and
strengthen the connections, personal and group growth, and learning that takes
place among you.
<Elisa17> I like the idea of meeting other Michael students in person. But some,
for instance, Australians like me, are isolated geographically from other
students. Do you have any advice or suggestions for us?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> Depending on locality, there are a number of ways that we see in
establishing local groups who wish to meet, discuss, and learn causal plane
One, it is likely that at some point some published material may
spur interest, therefore drawing new students to you or activating existing
student agreements. There are a number of students presently with publishing
plans and agreements to disseminate the information.
Two, by putting out an energetic "call" to your area you may find
sudden interest where you thought there was none.
And three, it is possible that there are those within other local
metaphysical populations who have interest or agreement to access our
information. We do see an influx of new students over the period of time in
question (ten years) and we are fairly confident that you will likely see change
in this in your area as well.
<Elisa17> Thank you!
<EvaDillner> As there are M students spread out in different countries, do you
see that some of the books might be translated into other languages? Are there
regions or countries that would be more receptive than others to the teachings?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We see some possibility that some published works could have a
crossover appeal and therefore may be available to those speaking other
languages; however this is as yet a small possibility. However, we do see that
the likelihood, given the relative ease of translation and use of electronic
media, of works becoming available in various languages is higher than in the
past. Where there are presently higher student populations is largely where the
additional influx of students will take place; in other words, students who
exist presently will attract other students and those with interest in the
<EvaDillner> Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Any other questions about tonight's topic? Ok, then if it's
acceptable with you, Karen, we can move on to the personal questions.
<Karen Murphy> Absolutely!
<DaveGregg> Laughingboi, you're next...
Q & A
<laughingboi> I have been working with uniformity and individualism and how to
keep group cohesion while respecting individual styles. How can I get across to
the young souls I am working with that wearing a uniform doesn't make one
inherently more valuable without disrespecting the choice to wear one? Any help
on this matter would be welcome.
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> It may be helpful to remember the perspective with which you are
working. Not only are you addressing the fragments on an individual basis, but
you must also confront the group as a whole, with its own sensibility and
perspective. Attempting to do this while maintaining your own sense of identity
and perspective is not easy.
We suggest, then, that you attempt to approach the problem thusly:
in order to better "match" energies with those with whom you are attempting to
connect, interact, and instruct, you must at the same time share their
perspective while being true to your own. This feels impossible. It can be done, however, by remembering more what life was like
during your own this-life time at that soul age level. You have access to those
memories now and without difficulty, as each fragment moves at least briefly
through the soul age levels in each lifetime, in childhood and even into early
adulthood. That energy, then, is available to you.
Should you choose to, although it may be frightening in terms of
recent issues "dealt with" in your 4th IM, you may easily access those times and
that energy so as to allow its presence to flavor your interaction with the
young souls with whom you work. You may wish to practice this at first through meditation before
"taking it on the road" with your coworkers. Although *you* may not notice any
difference in yourself, it is certain they *they* will perceive a subtle shift
in your energy that will allow your words, thoughts and deeds to take on that
different flavor and so to have a different impact. This process may take
several months, but will more than likely be highly effective.
<laughingboi> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Ann, you're next...
<annh> May I have information on my guide or guides? Name(s) and/or purpose. I
know one is male.
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> There are presently four. One, you may refer to him as Thor,
although his name is technically much longer/difficult. He prefers to manifest
in full Norse battle garb. Two, Serena. Moon energy, very female, balances the extreme male
of Thor. Three, moving toward mischief, there is a semi-human energy-shape
globule who is anxious that you give him (?) a name yourself. This is to help
balance your CF. Four, a simple warm loving radiance, unnamed and impossible to
<annh> Those are great. Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Cheryl, you're next...
<ocean_cheryl> I'd like to know please, if I have any mate agreements left, and
the best geographical location to facilitate these?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> The lifetime began with 16; at present there are 7
still available to you. Bear in mind that some may prove logistically difficult.
The best geographical location, then, at this time for executing your remaining
mate agreements is what's referred to as the Inland Empire in California, and
also southern Oregon (coastal) as well as the Atlanta area.
<DaveGregg> Beryl, you're next...
<CarrotWax> Cheryl, Dave lives in the Inland Empire area I think!
<beryl> Non-physical sources are conveying to me that my beloved mother is being
prepared to transition soon & it resonates with me although she isn't terminally
ill. I've had her charted but know so little about the two of us at essence
level. Regardless, is there one significant thing I could learn (for now) from
our past life/essence perspective?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> There is much love between these fragments, although this lifetime
has not always been easy between them. The sense of separation and the resulting
discomfort has been at time difficult to deal with, yet the obvious connection
and love has been undeniable.
On an essence level, then, there have been agreements made and
executed. There were certain imprinting arrangements that for a time increased
the feeling of bewildered estrangement, but that energy for the most part has
abated. We venture to suggest that the feeling of loss at the physical plane
parting will likely be sharp. In addition, these fragments have not been without their previous
times together, and it is because of that strong connection that was forged
through lifetime after lifetime that the present-life challenges were attempted.
What's left, then, is simply that knowingness of connection and love. There is
little outstanding left between you at this time, and the sense of acceptance
Growth occurs on both sides of a successful relationship, and we see that for
the most part, what was attempted has been attained. There is a completion to
<beryl> Yes, Michael, everything you said, true. Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Shannon, you're next...
<ShannonB> I have an irksome medical malady (chronic
hives) that is not life threatening, but it is certainly life limiting and
unpleasant. I think you have told me there is no lesson in it particularly, but
there is surely an imbalance of some kind. I had it last year and now I have it
again. What can I do to stop this once and for all, and what is the imbalance?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> Hives are typically a response to an overactive or
immune system; when the system becomes overloaded with input (allergens, for
instance), things go haywire and erupt in some fashion. Ergo, hives. Establishing balance, then, throughout other aspects of your life
may assist, then, in dismissing the apparent imbalance that has you so
You may wish to examine obvious culprits such as diet and
lifestyle, paying particular attention to stressors. Yoga and a holistic life
approach are certainly useful as well. Thinking of things in terms of symmetry
and balance will also be useful. You may wish to consult a practitioner dealing
in flower essences. It is unlikely that ONE answer or approach will extinguish
the problem, as there was not ONE thing that got you where you are now; however,
by applying an overall flavor to your entire life we see that it is likely that
you will see changes over the coming year.
<DaveGregg> Marjorie, you're next...
<marjorieandpiggies> Hi all! Michael,
can you help me better understand my current conflict with the woman named V.,
and how to heal from this?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> The healing aspect will likely need to come from the
woman Vicki in this instance. You can hold and support the relationship but the
forgiveness that comes will be from her direction, and other than holding
intention there is little you can do directly.
<DaveGregg> Diane H, you're next...
<Diane_H> Hi Karen and Michael. Iím asking about my
ex-boyfriend. Can you explain what were the dynamics that
caused our relationship to end? Were/Are there any other agreements at work
besides the mate agreement?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> The man indicated has been holding some fears unrelated to you;
however certain behaviors you had triggered this fear response within him. Had
his awareness of his own past and primal issues been greater he may have been
able to examine this objectively, but as such he was unable to and therefore
there was an energetic buildup which caused him great distress and discomfort.
At that point it was a matter, for him, of negate the self he had built around
him as protection, or acknowledge the innermost level of himself. Fear won out
and he was unable to complete the relationship.
<Diane_H> Is there any possibility of reconciliation?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We do see things being incomplete between you, so
there may be at some point that possibility, but at present he is well-wrapped
in his own fears.
<Diane_H> Thank you. That does make a lot of sense.
<DaveGregg> Ok, Karen wishes to close this session for tonight. Do you have any
closing comments, Karen?
<Karen Murphy/MICHAEL> We wish simply to offer you at this time the opportunity to walk
together and with us into what may be for some and fearful or exciting time
together. The connections many of you have made will carry you through
lifetimes, and no action among you has been wasted or for naught. Allow love for
yourselves and for one another, as you do so in other aspects of your lives, and
realize that constant change is but a part of the world in which you live.
<DaveGregg> Thank you, Michael and Karen. :-)
<Kathryn41> Thank you Michael and Karen:-)
<Diane_H> Thanks Karen and Michael!
<annh> Thank you Karen and Michael
<ShannonB> Thanks Karen. And thanks to Dave too, for this whole afternoon!
<Karen Murphy> Thank you all for being here!
<Kathryn41> Yes, I agree, thank you Dave for the whole anniversary celebration
<annh> Yes. Even though I couldn't attend. Great work, Dave and thanks
<ocean_cheryl> Thanks Karen, Michael, and Dave for the great day!
<DaveGregg> It's been a great 10th anniversary! Thank you all for attending. :-)
