Michael Chat with
<KarenMurphy> Tonight we shall begin with a question for you: What makes you
happy? Reflect on this for a while, and then share your answer if you like. As
you do so, begin to feel the connection to us and to your fellow students.
<Cricket> Connection and communication
with others, including children and animals.
<David_Bolton> Experiencing beauty through music, or by greater understanding.
<Elisa17> A sense of progress.
<DaveGregg> Jazz improvisation.
<CarrotWax> Being silly.
<Rhua> Connections with art and animals.
<vanessa> Loving and being loved by animals.
<Kathleen> BELLY dancing!
<DaveGregg> Making silly people sit in the back row. ;-)
<CarrotWax> Strip dancing in front of Dave!
<JohnRoth> Reading adventures!
<SandyW> interacting with others...helping to show them how to do what they are
trying to create
<SylviaD> Others being happy.
<tourmaline> laughing...and eye contact.
<Ann> sitting in the back row with fun bad friends :-)
<Kathryn41> feeling connected to the world around me
<Connie> Taking walks in the park. Nature, family, friends, pets, photography,
<Mer> Definitely connection, communion, art of all kinds, playing with children,
real love, green nature, beautiful fruits and veggies.
<KarenMurphy> Feel how this connection alters your perspective. Begin then to
feel the flow of happiness, of the energy created by that state, swirl around
you. Know that this is a state in which you may and can return at any time. Feel
the connection to your joy and to the joy of the others to whom you are now so
connected. Know that you will remember this at any time of your choosing. Feel
yourself expand as you smile inwardly, knowing that this state of happiness is
yours for the taking, for the knowing, and for the being, at all times. Expand
outward then until you are as large as you feel you need to be. You may
encompass your town, the earth, the universe, or an even larger space. Retain
the connection you feel to your fellow students and to your own special place of
happiness. Spread this joy-energy as you expand. While maintaining this
connection, you may now share what you are feeling. (Go ahead and type what you
are feeling, if you want).
<Alexandra> All my friends can now feel
what I do - inner joy and love.
<tourmaline> A sense of well-being and great hope for the future.
<Kathryn41> Expansive harmony.
<Connie> Calm, expansive joy
<jon_h> A mellow buzzing.
<SandyW> A sense of all belonging..a warmth...a quiet joy...a gentle love.
<Rhua> I feel connected and connecting,
<KarenMurphy> I feel this calm
connection with all of you. Very nice.
<KarenMurphy> [Michael] You are One. You are joy. You are perfect.
<KarenMurphy> Let's begin.
<DaveGregg> Ok, I'll start with the
Q & A
<DaveGregg> Elo-Maria wanted me
to ask if I have any past life connections with her, and what were some notable
ones, if any.
<KarenMurphy> The man David and the woman Elo-Maria have indeed shared lives in
the past. The one that is the most notable at this time is one in which these
two fragments were brothers. As children, these fragments were inseparable,
being the youngest of a large family. This occurred in Germany in the 1300's.
The family fell into hard times and the brothers were forced to become beggars.
They subsisted at this level for almost a year and then the older brother, now
known as Elo-Maria, found a position as apprentice to a shoemaker. This afforded
the two a living and the younger was able to avoid the streets for a time. The
parents and the rest of the children were widely scattered by this time and
could not assist. The shoemaker was kind and after a period of time offered to
adopt the boy. He would not leave his younger brother however and the two left
the village. This was practically suicide at that time, as villagers rarely left
their own region and were regarded quite suspiciously when they traveled.
<KarenMurphy> The pair traveled for almost a month and then ate some
poorly-stored grain, which made them ill and they then perished of dehydration.
There was no karma from this lifetime, and the uncomfortable memories have been
abated. What is left is the camaraderie these two fragments enjoyed, and the
energy of the two brothers as they made their way through what was otherwise a
<KarenMurphy> In addition, there were five other lifetimes shared to some
extent: comrades-at-arms in a battle between Rome and Carthage; Japanese scribes
in the 12th century; members of an African warrior tribe in the 1600's;
muralists in Tuscany in the 1500's, and traders in the Middle East in biblical
<DaveGregg> Is it coincidental that Elo
lives in the same town where I recently visited my friend Elf?
<KarenMurphy> Are there any coincidences, David? (smiles) WE have said before,
David, that you would be quite challenged by a move to Estonia, but we said as
well that this could be a move that changes more than simply your address. WE
see that should you decide on such a move, you would be well rewarded by the
various opportunities for study and play that would most likely come your way.
<DaveGregg> Thanks! :-)
<DaveGregg> Ok, Rick...you're next...
<Rick_OSS> I'd like to know the
overleaves and life task of my old friend, Milton. Also, do we have any
past lives or astral agreements? (Rick asking question)
<KarenMurphy> The fragment known as Milton is a 3rd level Mature Warrior,
Server-cast, with Artisan ET and task companion (incarnate, female). Goal
of Growth, Attitude Skeptic, Mode of Caution. CF mild self-dep and Impatience.
Moving centered, emotional part.
<KarenMurphy> You presently have a mutual facilitating and comfort agreement.
This is an old friend with whom you have shared many lives. In general in the
present life, you are here for one another in a support mode, and there is
little conflict. Notable past lives include twice as comrades-at-arms (once in
Russia, once in Polynesia), once as brother artists in what is now Hungary in
the 1400's, and once as fellow clerics in the burgeoning Christian church in
what is now Turkey.
<Rick_OSS> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Alexandra, you're next...
<Alexandra> I have a friend
(Chris who believes he is under psychic attack by a group of beings. These have
done this before, but are back now. Could the Michaels confirm this, please? If
it's true, could they please comment on the nature of who/what is attacking and
what my friend might do to end these attacks once and for all? Thank you.
<KarenMurphy> The fragment known to you as Chris has invited a certain entity to
have unimpeded contact with him. He may now be consciously aware that he has
given his permission for this contact, and this fragment indeed suffers from it.
There was a choice by the fragment Chris to experience this openness, but of
course things are often different on the physical plane, and while the fragment
Chris is indeed experiencing the effects of this constant attachment to his
"soul" (as he perceives it), at an essence level he is unaware of the
difficulties this is causing. The entity thus invited is an astral-level being
made up mainly of discarnate fragments choosing to have a "haunting" experience,
as well as some mischievous devic energy that enjoys attaching to physical-plane
<KarenMurphy> The most effective technique that the fragment Chris could use at
this time would be a combination of essence contact (to ensure that essence is
aware of the discomfort he is perceiving), and scare tactics. This could be
achieved by contact via a Ouija board or some such device, which these entities
are attracted to, and once contacted, spelling out their doom if they should
continue this contact. But again, this was indeed a choice of the fragment
Chris, even if he is unaware of it at a personality level, and therefore may be
difficult to eradicate.
<Alexandra> Thank you, Karen & Michael.
<DaveGregg> Matt, you're next...
<CarrotWax> This is for my
friend Sophie Brunet. Her picture is at www.sophiebrunet.com she writes: "All my
life I've had very severe stomach/digestive problems. Major discomfort,
inability to gain weight, occasionally unable to eat at all; nausea, heart burn,
extremely slow ability to swallow. Could Michael comment on the root causes and
suggest ways to improve this?"
<KarenMurphy> Sophie, we see at this time that there are three major causes for
the discomfort you have been experiencing.
One, although you did not choose a Goal of Rejection this life, still you are
drawn to the effects of this difficult choice. The effects are still there, and
you experience a rejection of self. This has created a medical condition wherein
your body is at constant war with itself.
Two, your centering of Moving part of Emotional center has contributed. You live
in your emotions, and this also creates inner turmoil, adding to the problem
Three, your food choices are often difficult for your body to ingest. There is
such imbalance within you that you are often drawn to the foods that cause the
most discomfort. We suggest then that you consider embarking on a time of care
for yourself that creates for you a sense of nurturing that you are at this time
Diet-wise, you can begin this with some foods that heal and nourish. Rich bone
broths, well-cooked vegetables, and plenty of high-quality fats should be the
mainstay of your diet. Avoid, for now, dairy products and "cold" foods. You lack
warmth and that warmth can be created within you. You may also enjoy various
grains, but concentrate on warming grains such as oats, barley, and brown rice
(in that order). But little fruit at this time. You may need a period as
long as six months to a year to really feeling the healing effects. At the same
time, some affirmations can also be helpful in allowing your inner turmoil to
dissipate. This will of course create change not only on the surface, changing
your dietary and digestive habits, but be aware that change will result in
almost every facet of your life from such a sweeping change in perspective, as
this change will take place beginning on the inside.
<CarrotWax> thank you
<DaveGregg> Ann, you're next...
<Ann> Ann H. here. I will
be in Florence and Tuscany/Siena next month. You've mentioned that I've had
lifetimes in Italy. Which of the following towns would be enjoyable for me to
visit--maybe nice memories? Cortona, Chiusi, Volterra, Montpulciamo, Montalcino?
Or any others that you suggest.
<KarenMurphy> Ann, there have been some name changes and alterations since some
of the times you lived in this country, but we would say that your fondest
memories would come from the are in and around Volterra, as well as
<Ann> Had a feeling about that! :-)
<KarenMurphy> WE see as well that you may be especially drawn to an area north
of Florence that was known at the time for it's sheep's milk cheese.
<Ann> Thank you! (frivolous, I know,
<KarenMurphy> Have a wonderful trip!
<DaveGregg> Elo, you're next...
<Elo-Maria> I have a question
about parallel lives and creative writing. There are theories, that writers
sometimes get their stories from parallel realities and I have this feeling too-
like I channel stories, not make them up. And some characters are like
alternative versions of myself, who really exist in some other parallel. So, is
there sometimes this kind of bleed-through between parallel lives and do I have
them while writing?
<KarenMurphy> Some channeled writing is a result of past-life memories, overlaid
with the present or the particular time period the writer concentrates on. Some
channeled writing is simply straight channeling and does not pertain to anything
that the writer actually experienced. Some channeled writing is as you stated,
bleed-through of self or others from parallels. And some channeled writing is
from psychic contact with unrelated fragments. You have done all of these..
<KarenMurphy> You are aware, of course, of the "altered" state in which you do
most of your writing. We would say that there are many present tonight who also
have knowledge of this state, whether through writing, painting, music, or other
modes. This is all a form of channeling, and you, Elo_Maria, seem to be
particularly well-versed in it (you taught the technique in Atlantis).
<Elo-Maria> Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Rhua, you're next...
<Rhua> This is Lori S.
(photo emailed to Karen) In this life I have always had a very strong affinity
for animals, even as a frustrated young child in a family where pets were not
allowed or appreciated. My connections to them have always been very important
to me, as important as any human relationships. Horses and dogs seem to figure
very prominently. I am seeking information on past lives that were primarily
concerned with animals, or reasons from the past as to why animals are such a
large and vital part of my life now? Are they related to my life task? What can
I do now to increase my ability to communicate more directly with animals?
<KarenMurphy> In this life, Lori, you have chosen to be more a student than a
teacher when it comes to animals. You are actually performing the first half of
a two-life sequence involving animals. In the past, you actually had some
difficult and frightening experiences that involved animals that you have chosen
to work through and learn from. You have died as a result of animals (eaten by
wild dogs, and dragged to death by horses), and you have attempted to go beyond
this discomfort in order to in the future become a teacher of other fragments
and of animals and the communication between them. We would say then that some
study at this time of animal communication fits well into this task.
<KarenMurphy> To facilitate this study, we suggest that a teacher be located. It
is possible that the writer/communicator known as Anita Curtis may have some
information for you as to a local teacher of this pursuit. IN addition, we see
that your study of this communication process may be enhanced by the purchase or
knowledge of a horse presently known to you, a chestnut with small white
<Rhua> is the horse male or female?
<Rhua> awesome, thank you very much
<DaveGregg> Mer, you're next...
<Mer> I am coming up on my SSI
Disability hearing on June 1, having waited for 2 1/2 years, slogging thru red
tape, living like a stray dog. I trusted my lawyer and other powers that be to
instruct me in what I needed to do. I did everything I was told. Now, after
going online and doing some research, I have found out that I do not have the
proper documentation worded in the way SSI accepts. On one hand, I know "I" will
be okay whatever happens and on the other I am afraid. Can you give me some
practical and spiritual input on this matter? Can you sense whether theis judge
will be kind? This is Meredith B.
<KarenMurphy> Meredith, may I ask the nature of the disability? It seems to be
<Mer> I have peripheral neuropathy in
my feet and it is very difficult and painful for me to stand or walk for any
significant length of time.
<KarenMurphy> Meredith, it is not with some irony that we see for you the
phrases "take a stand" and "stand on one's own two feet" are particularly
appropriate for you. Your goal of Acceptance has made it difficult for you to be
anything but accepting of your fate. But remember that the negative pole is
Ingratiation, which will not help you get things done unless you happen to come
upon the "right" attorney, judge, bureaucrat to assist you. Instead, we suggest
you attempt to inhabit the positive pole of this goal, Agape, which then gives
loving acceptance to yourself and to others with whom you come in contact. This
will be much more powerful than trying to remember which side of the fence you
are supposed to be on.
We see that in the positive pole, steps can be taken to rid you of this
financial burden, but in the negative pole we see that you may well choose to
remain there until this lesson is played out, or presented again in an even more
comprehensive manner. In other words, when you have grasped the lesson that is
being presented here (which is about remaining in the positive pole of
Acceptance), then things will fall in to place and become more effortless, but
by remaining in the negative pole, this situation will likely become even more
<Mer> Thank you. I am just a little
confused, about the way the positive pole would be manifested in this situation.
I don't want to just accept what is happening but I don't want to make my lawyer
mad at me either, or do or say the wrong thing in court. Is that ingratiation?
<KarenMurphy> Yes. You are afraid of offending someone. You can get out of
Ingratiation by going to the positive pole of Power, which is Authority. Be
authoritative, expressing your wishes and using knowledge to do so. Once you are
there, having tolerance or loving acceptance of yourself and those you are
dealing with can help keep you in Agape. Good luck.
<Mer> Thank you. I think I understand!
Let's hope I can manifest it.
<DaveGregg> Vanessa, you're next...
<vanessa> I’m soon going to
visit my sister (Leah) for a long weekend. We’ve never been close
and we have little in common. Can you provide some insight into our relationship
as it’s been affected by past- and current-life circumstances, our overleaves,
any agreements or karma we’ve been working out, and do you have any suggestions
as to how I can get closer to her and connect in new ways?
<KarenMurphy> Have you had channeling about your relationship with your sister
<KarenMurphy> The woman known to you as Leah was your mother in a previous
lifetime. In the current life, she has been awaiting some sign of confirmation
of your recognition as to her "proper" place as your mother, but you have not
recognized this, and your situation while growing up did not lead to your
discovery of this energy between you.
<KarenMurphy> Consequently, Leah has become somewhat bitter at your apparent
failure to show her the respect she subconsciously feels you should show her.
There is of course no conscious realization on either her part or yours as to
why there should be a discomfort between you, and Leah would like on many levels
to rectify this, but does not know how to go about it. We do not see either that
telling her at this point that would make a big difference in the energy between
you, but we do see that you can attempt to contact her in dreamtime and assure
this fragment of many fears that you hold her in love and you wish a more
sisterly bond been you. This may help draw you closer.
<vanessa> Thank you Michael and Karen!
<DaveGregg> Elisa, you're next...
<Elisa17> Could you please tell
me, what are the connections between myself – Elisa M, and my ex and
close friend Alexander M. (Agreements, past lives, and the like.)
<KarenMurphy> This fragment was more than once your brother. We see as well that
there is an agreement for the present lifetime that involves rejection on some
levels, so the disparity between this rejection and the very real brotherly bond
you feel for one another is somewhat bewildering. In addition, there is a
further agreement between you involving intimacy and its exploration.
Previously, you worked together as basket makers in the Gobi desert, and knew
one another in passing on the plains of the American southwest, where you were
members of neighboring friendly clans.
<KarenMurphy> There is much comfort between you, but also discord. The agreement
on intimacy was at times difficult because of conflicting body-type attractions,
but we see that this exploration has been enhanced by the shift in your
relationship that has taken place within the past four years. We see as well
that it is likely that you will be able to successfully explore this concept
between you without the distraction of being a "couple" in the way that you have
<Elisa17> Thank you. Could you tell me
about the agreement that involves rejection?
<KarenMurphy> You are each exploring rejection, not necessarily as a goal,
within yourselves. This also relates to the relationship as a whole, connected
also to the intimacy agreement. There was the desire to create within your
relationship a push-pull on many levels, so that you could then explore what
that felt like within the context of the comfort you had already established.
The rejection, then, relates not only to yourselves as individuals ("what does
this feel like?"), but also in your interaction with one another. We see that
the physicality was related to this push-pull effect.
<Elisa17> Thank you very much.
<DaveGregg> ChrisMc, you're next...
<ChrisMc> Chris M. here. I
have a chronic pain condition with which I have suffered for 3 years now. The
condition makes it difficult for me to sit. I have to take strong pain meds just
to get through the day (and night). I would like to know if this condition has
any basis in a past life situation, and if so, is there anything I can do to
mitigate the karma?
<KarenMurphy> WE see that often a fragment will choose pain as the manifestation
of fear. Fear is so pervasive and at the same time paralyzing. Fear also creates
a disharmony within the body, as the parasympathetic system is on a constant
alert. Consequently, chemicals are released in the body that often have a
deleterious effect on the physical body. This imbalance can go on to mutate, or
set the immune system working overtime, or create a place of self-rejection, or
various other effects. Many of these are then manifested as pain. We cannot give
you a quick formula as to how to avoid fear, but we can say that in so doing,
many of the symptoms now manifesting would dissipate after a time, as the body
has the capability to heal even after becoming almost completely changed
through the mutation of cells.
<KarenMurphy> We do not see in your case that this present condition is related
to a previous lifetime, but we do see a strong holding-in of various
fear-related issues is likely causing the malady which has resulted in your
pain. In other words, by holding in fear, you have caused damage which is
manifesting as pain. Naturally, you wish to stop this process. We realize that
eradicating the human response to fear is difficult at best. Fear, however,
cannot exist in a constant state of love. Therefore, to eliminate fear, a
fragment would attempt to instead live in and surround itself with love.
<KarenMurphy> You may wish to begin with affirmations and a nurturing program
similar to one suggested earlier. In addition, consciously attempting acceptance
of your present situation, in all its respects, as well as all who surround you,
will have a positive effect. At the same time you may wish to begin to
consciously release the fear you are holding within you. As this can be seen in
your eyes, you may wish to allow it to dissipate through them as well.
<ChrisMc> Thank you very much.
<DaveGregg> How are you holding up, Karen? We have around 5 questions left.
<KarenMurphy> I can take one more.
<KarenMurphy> Sorry to not get to everyone tonight.
<DaveGregg> Ok, Amelia, you're next...
<ameliavt> Could you please
tell me what message is contained in the powerful energy shift I felt today? I
know that I'm experiencing my soul's presence coming forward more consciously-a
part of where I'm at as I turn 40.
<KarenMurphy> Amelia, we see that this energy shift you experienced was a result
of a message to you from essence. As you explore the 4th IM further and move
through that process, you will find most likely that you do not need such
dramatic attempts to gain your attention. The message had to do with helping to
focus your attention on something that essence felt was important for you to
have awareness of. This message was likely contained within something you saw
rather than heard or felt. Part of the message also was the method of gaining
your attention, as your essence was using this experimentally to see how better
to communicate with you. If you choose you can find awareness in a more subtle
fashion, through practice.
<KarenMurphy> Essence would also like your participation in this process. This
was a part of your message from today. We see that you are drawn to meditation
and suggest that you incorporate connection to essence within your practice.
This will continue to allow you to open channels of communication and to work
more closely with essence through this 4th IM period.
<ameliavt> thank you Michael and thank
you so much Karen. Peace.
<KarenMurphy> We see again tonight that it is possible to transcend the everyday
sameness by connecting with others. That, in essence, is why you are all here.
It is only through exploration of life with other fragments on the physical
plane that you can know anything about what it is to be human. We commend each
of you on your own exploration. Remember that each and every choice you make is
the "right" choice, as each leads to growth. Each step you take is always
the "right" step.
Again, you are perfect, and you are all One. Goodnight.
<DaveGregg> Thanks, Karen. Great
<Kathryn41> Thank you Michael. Thank you Karen.
<Elisa17> Thank you Michael and Karen.
<SandyW> Thanks Michael and Karen :)
<CarrotWax> Thank you :-)
<David_Bolton> Thank you!
<dianekeith> Thanks Karen, Michael, Dave and Kathryn! ;-)
<SylviaD> Thank you, Michaels and Karen!
<Rhua> Thanks very much!
<KarenMurphy> You're all very welcome. Good night and thanks.
<DaveGregg> Great turnout tonight, as well.
<DaveGregg> We had 45 people at one point!
<Connie> Thank you! I really needed to hear everything :-)
<JohnRoth> Thank you!
