<KarenMurphy> Let's start with
a meditation. Actually, I've been getting the message all day that they want to
do some energy work, so let's all think about that.
Join hands and hearts, and let's go.... feel yourself becoming
more comfortable in your chair. Feel the soles of your feet as they touch the
floor. Feel if you can the fabric of any socks you have on. Feel the hardness of
your shoes, if you have them on. Feel the floor itself if you can, whether it is
carpeted or bare. Think now about your feet, and BREATHE....
Anyone want to report in what you are feeling now?
<fireflysuz> ...comfortable connections
<Rainbow1> Tingling energy through my entire body.
<Kathryn41> Tingling heat in the soles of my feet.
<sweetsagesusan> Feet grounded to earth , hearts linked, energy exchanging.
<LaurelB> Energy smoothing out.
<AnnH> Clearing of cloudy energy-feeling.
<Rainbow1> Just huge waves of energy even to my fingertips.
<KarenMurphy> This energy is intended for healing today. Many of you have issues
with which you have been struggling. This extra boost may assist you with that,
or at the very least grant you a feeling of connectedness this night, something
all of you are here for as well.
Feel now what happens as you accept this healing into your being. You are one. You are loved. Breathe the knowingness of this into
yourself, into your core. Maintaining this connection, let's begin the questions now.
<DaveGregg> Ok, I'll start and get
mine out of the way since I don't ask
many questions when I moderate.
Q & A
<DaveGregg> I've been pondering the idea of relocating to my birthplace in
Burlington, Iowa. Would such a move be in alignment with essence and potential
<KarenMurphy> Dave, we see that the pull to relocate to your place of birth is
threefold. One, you are working through issues relating to your 4th IM and icons
of your childhood figure very strongly in this. Essence sees that these issues
may be more successfully addressed if relocation takes place.
Two, you are suffering from career burnout or at least malaise. A
move to such a place would force big changes in this regard, and would allow you
to make more dynamic and creative choices.
Three, there is something of a feeling to run from where you are,
what you are. Do know that whatever you are wishing to run from will simply
follow you, but it is possible that in this place that represents protection and
conformity, you may more easily be equipped to handle the issues you would
really rather ignore.
We see of course that these issues would be presented in either
location, but again your comfort may be affected by one choice versus the other.
In other words, your short answer is: "yes". (smiles)
<DaveGregg> Thanks, Karen/Michael. :-)
<DaveGregg> Geraldine, you're next...
<GeraldineB> What did I plan to accomplish in this life and what
karma, self-karma, and/or agreements remain unfinished to complete my life goal?
<KarenMurphy> Geraldine, to do your question justice would take some time and
may mean that we can't get to everyone tonight. Is there one aspect of your
question you'd like to focus on?
<GeraldineB> Narrow it as you need to -- it's an ongoing quest, anyway.
<KarenMurphy> Geraldine, it may be useful to remember that the planned
accomplishments in a given lifetime are many and complex. In addition, plans
change as the lifetime progresses and new plans are constantly being made,
changed, fixed, and discarded. You are aware of this. At the same time, there is
typically at least one, and more often than not several, overarching themes of
any given lifetime.
Your theme, then, for this lifetime, is: Change. To accomplish
this, you have set up some interesting challenges in order to explore this theme
to the extent that you planned to. Some of these challenges have to do with simple things such as
overleaves; in your case, you chose overleaves that would lead you to some
discomfort with change. This is not uncommon, by the way. You typically learn
best through dissonance.
The twelve basic themes are: Change, Identity, Affluence, Pattern,
Resistance, Movement, Purpose, Vision, Rest, Awareness, Strength, and Humor.
Each of you, as we said, will choose one or more of these to
explore in depth during a lifetime. This can be, but does not always occur as
such, in concert with the Life Task. A Life Task will typically be somewhat more specific, though we
have seen that many of you wish for more specificity when receiving information
about your particular life task!
Themes can be explored in many ways, but more often than not they
affect many choices that are made. Typically, as we said, choices are made so as
to create friction so that introspection can occur which leads to awareness and
understanding. Not that awareness needs to occur, of course, for the lesson to be
completed. We would say, however, that many of you will be able to easily choose
which Theme or Themes are yours, if you look with real introspection into your
past and the choices you have made. We liken this to the story of the mule
needing a bigger and bigger stick to obtain its attention; many of you require
your own 2x4s in order to bring your attention to various issues.
<GeraldineB> Thank you, I've certainly accomplished change :)
<DaveGregg> Ameliavt, you're next...
<ameliavt> Thank you, Michael, this past week and the full moon really caused a
big energy shift for me, unsettled, can you tell me about this time and how it
is affecting me, how to use this time for my highest growth? I've also been
thinking a lot about projection today, of the beloved.
<KarenMurphy> As you know, there are shifts both minute and large
all times. Energy movement is felt on the physical plane in a variety if ways,
but has its perhaps stringiest noticeable effect in conjunction with the
changing of the seasons. One hemisphere is beginning an inwardness at this time, while
expansion is the effect in the other hemisphere. The two create a balance and
are necessary to be in opposition in order to hold things together
Many if you as we said are sensitive to such changes. You have
noticed, then, just as the pulse of the earth has slowed in your part of the
planet, so must you as well turn inward and into introspection. It is time,
then, to focus of the manifestation, the completion, of what has been discerned
in the previous season.
Although there is a slowness about this period for most of you
(residing in the northern parts of your planet), there is also as we have said
the completion, a sense of urgency as you move toward finality, of the projects
and issues begun earlier in the year.
This, then, is a time of intense growth inward as you strive to
complete these projects.
<DaveGregg> Elo, you're next...
<Elo-Maria> I have very strong feelings about animal suffering. I became
vegetarian when I was 13 years old and each time I hear some story about
hurting animals it makes me feel so awful and I can't get it out of my head
anymore. Sometimes I have hard to control my anger towards those, who hurt
animals. I just wonder, what might be the real reason of so strong reactions
and feelings? Maybe karmic thing, from past lives?
<KarenMurphy> It appears that you have chosen this life to make this a crusade
of sorts, to direct the anger you gather about various things to this more
socially acceptable target of those performing acts to animals you find
personally abhorrent. This is simply a choice, one designed to give you a venue through
which to direct some of your admittedly strong passion. In addition, your Priest
energy gives you the intensity of Doing Right For The World.
That is not to say that cruelty toward animals and for that matter
other humans is not what many consider an abominable act. We see it merely as a
choice that leads to consequences, just as all choices lead to consequences. Not
that we of course condone intentional cruelty, or even accidental cruelty, but
we realize that these acts are all part of the human condition on the physical
<Elo-Maria> Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Grits, you're next...
<GRITSnEGGS> Hello, though "Maddy" has told me that I will pass into a more
serene place in life after this restart of my 4th IM is completed around
December, I seem to feel no pull toward ANYTHING specific & I wanted to know if
you all would comment on this Lost / Lack of direction ? It frustrates me ALOT.
<KarenMurphy> There are still several issues left outstanding for a completion
in the positive pole of this fragment's 4th internal monad. The most compelling
is that of Trust. Trust can be interpreted in several ways, and you have already
identified that trust in yourself is an issue that has been significant for you.
As far as the sense of lacking direction, we would say that your
overleaves are contributing most strongly to that, as you have been wallowing in
the negative pole of chief feature (Impatience) for some time and have allowed
this to create this feeling of being "stuck", as it in turn allows you to rail
against the strictures of this most frustrating and compelling chief feature.
We would suggest, then, that you attempt to identify patterns
wherein you feel a lack of direction and allow yourself the latitude to make
choices, any choices, that create within you a sense of control over the
situation. We realize, of course, that not making a choice is in itself a
choice, but this would only add to the pattern you now find yourself in.
As far as feeling serenity at some point in the future, we see that should you
be able to successfully pull yourself out of this place that now has you feeling
stuck, you will create a new perspective that will allow you the ability to see
the flow of your life as one of serenity.
<GRITSnEGGS> Oh thank you VERY much.
<DaveGregg> Spirit-n-Motion, you're next...
<spirit_n_motion> Hi and thanks for being here! My question is...Doctors tell me
I have Bi-polar Disorder. Is this true or is it more a condition of my soul age
<KarenMurphy> What is commonly termed at this time as Bipolar disorder is
actually a complex set of scenarios that in most cases, but not all, is a result
of the individual's brain chemistry. Choices creating this chemical alteration
include soul age and overleaves, and more often than not simply a choice to
experience intense highs and lows throughout the lifetime.
Some fragments choose to accept this intensity as their "norm" but
others choose to make an issue of it that then results in the chemical
In your case there is a heightened effect from the perception you
hold given your individual overleaves, which combines with the fragment's choice
to hold that perception even more intensely, and also combines with genetic
material given you by your parents that lead your particular chemistry toward a
certain outcome and configuration.
Whether or not you choose to accept a label for this perspective
is up to you, of course.
<DaveGregg> Ann H, you're next...
<AnnH> Overleaves of John Schultz, born in Missouri in July of 1931-32 and do I
have an agreement with him?
<KarenMurphy> This is a 2nd Mature Warrior, Scholar casting, Server ET
(discarnate). Passion mode, Goal of Acceptance, Attitude Spiritualist. CF Greed
and Self-Dep (mild). Centering moving part of emotional.
The agreements have to do with mutual teaching of heightened
awareness through movement.
<DaveGregg> Ok, Desert Girl is next...
<desert_girl> Hello Karen and Michael, I am having dreams of my x husband
Gary H. and male friend Ray. what are my agreements with these two men and
are they also dreaming/thinking about me?
<KarenMurphy> The agreement with the man Gary was mainly a mate agreement;
however, there is still an outstanding portion of this that you may be feeling
now. In addition, there were some issues from this relationship that were not
fully addressed and you are attempting to do so now in dreamtime.
The man Ray has been attempting to contact you in various ways and
finds it most convenient to do so also in dreamtime, when the physical plane is
more malleable and you together can create whatever venue you wish to in order
to play. In addition, with the man Ray there is an agreement to act in
concert, with two others as well, as a spiritual teacher for several
yet-to-incarnate fragments that plan to incarnate in another species.
<desert_girl> Thanks so much..I feel clearer..
<DaveGregg> Sweetsage, you're next...
<sweethartsagesusan> I am feeling the need to shed everything, like have an estate sale; and; sell everything
perhaps to move / relocate / break free. What message is my essence trying to give me ; i kind of
like the thought of
5 suitcases / a car; and; freedom where would my essence be happy to relocate to ??? it sometimes; doesn't like earth (wink) or, at least it's tired of caretaking so much stuff.
<KarenMurphy> Essence at this time will draw you toward places where 1.) you can
be with like-minded people, and 2.) you can be alone to think and create. A
We suggest though that you might do well to thoroughly examine
your motives here and determine, if you can, the nature of the pull, or is it
truly a push? that compels you to make such a drastic choice in living
We would also like to remind you that you will be with you
wherever you are, should you choose to take you along. In other words, you may
find just as much change from remaining where you are, and you could conversely
find nothing but sameness should you choose the route of change.
<DaveGregg> You're next, Terri...
<terri> Jamie wants to know how Pepa
[Grandfather] Bolling is doing. He passed over a few
<KarenMurphy> This fragment is now working on scheduling the reenactment of the
death sequence for other newly-transited fragments. He received his own
reception, of a sort, and has been of late immersed in helping others through the
same process. For him, it has been an important step in completing the
assimilation process that allows fragments to discern that they are truly no
longer of the physical plane.
This fragment also has been happily reunited, albeit briefly, with
others he has known well in the past, though these did not include fragments
from this most previous lifetime.
<terri> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Carrot, you're next...
<CarrotWax> I would like a summary of major agreements Michael sees in the near
future for me.
<KarenMurphy> There are three potential mate agreements outstanding. There are
teaching agreements with a large number of fragments. There is also the
potential of a child agreement, and there are several facilitating agreements of
a seemingly coincidental sort. In addition, there is at least one agreement to
facilitate an event that will help clear up some outstanding minor karma.
<CarrotWax> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Diane, you're next...
<dianekeith> Hello Karen and Michael. I would like to know about previous lives
as an artist, and what mediums were used. I feel an ease and familiarity with
the natural materials I'm using now. Also, (hehe;-) what are the chances of me
earning a living through my art in this lifetime?
<KarenMurphy> Textiles were a favorite, as was clay and metalwork, especially
brass. In addition, you had lives as a dyer, a smith, and an embroiderer/weaver. You have had several lifetimes in what you would consider the
arts; over 50 thus far have been spent in some sort of creative endeavor as an
artisan in the literal sense.
We see that you would have not only a feeling of familiarity but
also of peace if you were to choose in this lifetime some work which felt
creative as well as lucrative. You are, of course, free to manifest whatever lifestyle you choose
at any time, whether you believe you have this ability or not.
<dianekeith> Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Last question is from Rcig...
<Rcig> Hello Michael, Karen, Dave and all. I'd like to know my overleaves/life
task. Thank you.
<KarenMurphy> This is a 1st level Old Priest, Server-cast with Artisan ET,
incarnate female. Goal is Submission, Attitude Pragmatist, Mode is Perseverance.
CF is Greed, Centering emotional part of moving. Life task is assimilating the
knowledge that you seek for the greater good of others.
<DaveGregg> That was the last question,
Karen. Do you have any closing comments?
<KarenMurphy> You have seen tonight the power of manifestation. Despite the
technical difficulties that keep you apart this night, you were able to overcome
this and resume the semblance of community that you began the evening with.
We see, then, that each of you holds that immutable spark that
creates within you the drive to experience what life brings you. There is no
doubt that within each of you is the space and ability to manifest whatever it
is that you desire. Do not forget this. We shall say this again: each of you has
the power to create not only yourselves but also the space around you, and in so doing you also create the experience that is life on the physical plane.
Be, then, what you create.
<DaveGregg> Thank you, Karen and Michael. Especially for being
so patient with the technical difficulties.
<KarenMurphy> Ah well, I'm glad we all made it back here safely, most of us.
<Kathryn41> thank you Karen - you held it together very well through all of
<desert_girl> Many thanks to all 3 of you. As usual it was a wonderful
<GRITSnEGGS> Thank you Michael and Karen very much for the advice.
<AnnH> Thanks so much, Karen.
<dianekeith> Great session, thanks Karen, Michael, Dave and Kathryn!
