<NancyG> Everyone, please bring yourself
into a peaceful frame of mind. have that glass of water handy. Not alcohol
because it dehydrates.
Allow yourself to come to a place of
togetherness with yourself, then reach out to all of us in this far flung
Finally, connect with every living thing,
passing on and receiving the energies that continually enfold us.
Michael, are we ready?
Michael: We are here. We have an ordinary thought to pass
along to all of you at this time. Ordinary in the truest sense of the
word. We suggest that you smile. All alone at your keyboard, think of the
beginning of the new season, of the color of frost, of the feel of warm
wind. Why? Because there is a need to fashion/create some peace among you.
We feel this need in you tonight and smiling begets a sense of peace.
The physical plane is a world of learning, a place in which only certain
lessons are available. After you have finished your cycle of human lives,
you will join your entity and from then on until you have returned to the
Tao there are other experiences, other lessons to learn. But none will
repeat what you have available here.
Some of the teachers you may have heard of in the past have emphasized the
need to strip off the weight of the human body, to nullify, if you will,
the physical in favor of the metaphysical. But this will not lead
Certainly it will not move fragments on to greater evolution in agape. The
physicality of the plane is part of the reason for the lessons. Making
choices, learning about how others as well as oneself feel, work, endure,
grieve, hurry, wait, laugh, and cry, that is the work of everyone here.
Among those who subscribe to the lighter moments as the only worthwhile
objective in life are those who would like to ignore many of the above
experiences. But experiences such as these, both the comfortable and the
miserable, are part of the game.
We have said that just as much can be learned in bliss as in misery, from
love rather than from fear. But we concede that fear-driven misery is a
profound teacher and the lessons tend to resonate deeply in the human
soul. Why is that? We do not know. But be assured that you are not the
only creation that so learns. It is a common condition throughout the
For each of you bearing the weight of worry, sickness, anger, helplessness
in the face of events or relationships, we remind you that there is a
light at the end of the tunnel. It is called agape. And it is actually
here right now. It may not smell sweet, it may not appear when you need it
to remind yourself of your humanity, but it is the driving force of all
creation. Fear is a distant second. As you struggle with life as it is,
come back occasionally to our opening words. Plan a smiling session for
yourself. It will not make the day less long or less dark, if it is both
long and dark, but it will bring you and your Higher Self closer together.
Bringing the Higher Self back to mind and heart will open pathways that
will often assist in the darkest moments.
Now we will answer Questions.
<DaveGregg> Deborah, you have the first
question this evening...
Q & A
<Deborah_D> Back in high school and briefly
after on more than one occasion, I had experienced physical pain, a few
times even minor bleeding, that had no discernible cause only to find out
later that something had actually happened to my then best friend that
caused identical symptoms. Once she went camping with some friends, and
the night she was away I woke up in my bed, kept staring at the four walls
around me, and feeling increasing panic. I was terrified. I later found
out that a man had been prowling around their tent. I was wondering if we
had some connection between us that caused this?
Michael: The energy of adolescence is exceptionally strong
during the time that the fragment is sorting out things on many levels.
The phenomenon of the poltergeist is one aspect of this. You and your
friend at that time were tuned to the same vibration and when this male
entered her aura she broadcast her reaction rather sharply. You, being so
tuned to her at that moment, received this energy as a wake-up call,
literally. We do not see any other repercussions, other than what we have
assure you that there is no more to fear from this experience.
<Deborah_D> Ok, thank you I've been wondering about it for a long time.
<DaveGregg> Kerry P, you're next...
<KerryP> I've been experiencing much hostility at work, all
apparently socially-oriented. I'm struggling to understand and navigate it
as I have no real issue with any of these people & have no clue what could
warrant such negative behavior. Is there any insight you can give me into
the reason for this?
<NancyG> How old are most of the people you are working with?
<KerryP> 5 years older or more, but the atmosphere is not unlike high
Michael: We agree that this is a kind of clique-centered
group, one that echoes the same elements of the teenage years. There is
one person among those who are treating you with hostility who has
promoted this atmosphere and who gets a kind of power from watching others
take their cue from her. There is also one, a male, who stands to the
sidelines and does not participate. The game here is power, the mode of
the instigator. It would not matter what kind of person you are or how
hard you try to adjust to the group. She would still have engineered the
same situation regarding you.
If it makes you feel any better, this is not personal between you and her
and this set of beings. But we sympathize and suggest that there may be a
better way to earn a living.
<KerryP> Thanks:) It doesn't really feel personal...but I'd rather just be
left alone! I tend to agree though. Thanks for your feedback.
<DaveGregg> YY2, you're next...
<yy2> Lately my brother Ping has been ill
with severe diabetes and chronic depression. Now my mother is sick. What's
going on in my family?
Michael: The diabetes that the fragment Ping is ill with is
part of the physical structure of the body that he has occupied. It is a
genetic product of the parents and of a bloodline that goes back many
generations. The depression is part of the chemical imbalance fostered by
this chronic condition. This is, as you describe it, a very serious and
debilitating disease of the body. There are various chemical medications
that may give some relief, along with sedulous attention to diet and
The illness that currently debilitates your parent is a coincidence at
this time. Both experiences are part of the way of the physical plane. The
diabetes was accepted along with other reasons for incarnating in this
body through these parents. The illness of your mother is part of the
body's composition at this time. As for 'what is going on' in your family,
only the usual for this time and space.
<yy2> How are their illness relating to me?
Michael: We do not see a predisposition for the same
problem with the manufacture of insulin in your composition. At this time
there is no sign that these two illnesses are related to you except for
your concern for your close family.
<yy2> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Moonval, you're next...
<Moonval> My stepfather, 6th level young
scholar, has been very ill for the past year or so. He is very unhappy. I
have exhausted myself to the point of having a heart attack trying to meet
his and my mothers needs/desires. How can I best help us all?
Michael: First, there is a need for the care giver to care
for him-herself before going all out for others. There is an admonition
offered by servers on your aircrafts to fasten one's own oxygen mask
before assisting others. This is good advice for anyone who is trying to
meet the needs of those whose needs are endless.
Second, we appreciate your wish to be as helpful as you know how to be,
and we commend your attempts to be all things to these two fragments who
are important to you. We remind you, however, that in instances such as
these, it is imperative that there be relief and that others assume some
In the instance of the fragment Irwin, unhappiness has not shown up just
with the advent of the illness of the past year. There has never been a
time when he was actually content, illness notwithstanding. Now that his
mate has her own debilities, he finds himself without the prop he was used
to, and turns to the next best person, you.
Finally, if you can keep this all in perspective and not focus so
immediately on the wish of the day or the desire of the moment coming from
these two decidedly unhappy souls, you may decide to offer assistance
where you can and decline where you cannot. These are choices that you are
faced with and your response will be your choice par excellence.
Remember, no choice is invalid.
<Moonval> You are right on, Nancy. That helped and I am so grateful!
<DaveGregg> Avatar, you're next...
<avatar415> Ever since I took French in
college, I have had a great affinity for French language and culture. Do I
have any past lives in the country now known as France? Also, am I a
Michael: This fragment has had numerous lifetimes in the
country now known as France, the earliest before the label 'France' was
thought of. Over the past 1500 years, this fragment has been successively
a butcher, a leather worker, a warrior, twice a brewer as a female, the
town crier, an abbess, and finally, a dancer among the courtiers of the
king known to your history as Louis XV. Oh, yes, she was once a portrait
<avatar415> Am I a scholar?
Michael: We see scholar as the likely role, flavored
with Warrior in the casting.
<avatar415> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Jyoti, you're next...
<Jyoti_Shah> V. M (son) and A. (father) are
in what is termed as a co-dependent relationship. Vishrut sometimes bends
backward in his duties as a son. Is this a pre-incarnational agreement or
a past life karmic ribbon being burnt? Does S. (V's wife) picture in this
Michael: Yes, the third leg of the stool is absolutely
necessary for the balance.
Michael: The three fragments are all in agreement to burn a
karmic ribbon that was created several lifetimes ago. It has taken until
this life for all three to be incarnate at the same time and in the same
place to facilitate the agreement to burn the ribbon.
This karma has to do with a relationship between the two males that ended
in estrangement for the whole of a lifetime. Repairing this disruption is
the goal of the agreement, but it is hard going for the older male since
it is he who was responsible for the final break between the two. The
female fragment was present during the initial dispute, in truth this
would be 'disputes', and sided with the fragment who is now the son. We
can see that there may not be a resolution in this lifetime. Repaying
karma is a tricky proposition and all parties must be tuned to its
resolution or it will not happen.
In the event that it does not get burned this time, there will be another
lifetime when the attempt will be made. Before cycling off, all karmic
debts WILL be paid, absolutely.
<Jyoti_S> Can Shama and Vishrut do anything that can ease the current
Michael: When there is a three-legged stool to sit
on, one has the tendency to sit very gingerly, lest an uneven distribution
of weight cause the seat to overturn. This is the case here. By
approaching his father in as understanding and as filial a way as he can,
the fragment Vishrut [corrected from Sharma in original] is following his
soul's direction, accompanied by his mate's energy and concern. This,
however, does not mean that he will be successful. In fact, we do not hold
out much hope for such a resolution this time, as we have said.
<Jyoti_S> Is is Shama or Vishrut? This is a bit unclear. Shama is female.
Michael: We have reversed the genders. Sharma is a
male name, is it not? Shama is female. We hold the channel responsible for
<Jyoti_Shah> You mean Shama has to help ease the situation. Thanks, Nancy,
Michael and Dave.
<DaveGregg> Akira, you're next...
<akira> My father has passed away on March
10th this year, I'd like to know if he has finished his lifetime review
and if he has anything to say to my mother and me.
Michael: The fragment who was your parent has not yet
begun his review. He has not yet come to terms with his situation and is
being assisted by his guides who appear to him as ancestors or old friends
who have preceded him. We will ask your question of him now.
This fragment's response is to ask you a question: Have you yet found the
<akira> I have no idea about that question.
Michael: Then it is probable that it will come up
sometime soon. Remember that on the astral plane there is no concept of
past or future. All is present. Souls often do not distinguish events in
their right order.
<akira> Thank you so much.
<DaveGregg> Kathryn, you're next...
<Kathryn41> What can you tell me about any
of the past lives my friend Barbarra Jordan and I have shared, especially
any that may be particularly relevent to our current friendship? (I sent
the link to her photograph to you the other day)
Michael: We see two fragments connected by a strong
sense of attachment and agape. This connection began as comrades in arms,
evolved through a mating agreement in which the fragment Kathryn was the
male, and went on to two sisters who married brothers. The feeling of
close ties is valid.
<Kathryn41> do you have a time frame for any of these?
Michael: The lifetime as soldiers was in the early
5th C. of the common era, the Roman legion in Syria. The mating agreement
was late in the 16th C common era, in northern Scandinavia. The lifetime
as sisters was two centuries ago, and ended somewhat early with the death
of the fragment Barbara in childbed.
<Kathryn41> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Terri, you're next...
<Terri> Michael, you know there are many
aspects to my current situation, and your opening remarks were very
welcome and soothing. I believe I see a lesson or two in all of this. Do
you see any lessons that I might be missing?
Michael: The fragment Terri is adept at seeing
lessons (small grin) in every situation! We commend your efforts to keep
things in focus and to garner all the meat from situations which lead to
evolution of the spirit.
Yes, there are many lessons attached to the recent events in your life,
but we do not think you have missed even a one of them.
<Terri> Thank you, with much needed laughter. <grin>
<DaveGregg> Ann, you're next...
<annh> At what point in his lifetime did
the Transcendental Soul manifest in Mohammed? When was the TS fully
Michael: As with most Transcendental Soul
manifestations, the fragment Mohammad was finished with the 4th Internal
Monad when he began to manifest. He was in his 5th decade and the first
inkling that there was something different about him came with the first
exposition of what would later be called the Qu'ran. Legend has it that
the Angel Gabriel appeared in the sky during one of his meditations in the
mountains and offered the first suras. This is only partly true. It was
the way this fragment explained what was in fact an internal conception of
the mission he was about to undertake, and his first exposure to the
energy of the Transcendental Soul within him.
Further, the Transcendental Soul remained with the fragment Mohammad from
that time until his death as he devoted the rest of his life to the
altering of the world view of his surroundings.
We will say at this time that the Transcendental Soul can exist in the
body of a human being without that personality having to vacate the
premises. Unlike the Infinite Soul, which needs for the original owner of
the body to leave, the Transcendental Soul will not harm its host. When
the Infinite Soul manifests in a body its very high plane energy will
totally consume it in a short time. The Transcendental Soul, being a
lesser energy, can co-habit with the human owner without causing danger to
<annh> That was very powerful for me. Thanks, Nancy and Michael.
Michael: We perceive
that there are many concerns tonight involving the health and welfare of
the body. Since this is the plane in which the body is the primary vehicle
for experiencing creation, we understand your concern when it does not
function as you believe it should.
We will say this: Illness, debilitating elements such as accidents,
chronic malfunctions, and other afflictions, are a part of human life.
There is no one anywhere on this planet, and in fact anywhere in the whole
of creation, who is totally free of the exigencies of the body. Some
fragments are 'healthier' than others, it is true, but unless cut down in
the prime of a very young adult life, there are many things that can and
do go 'wrong' with the vehicle. As you are so prone to say: If it isn't
one thing, it is another.
Your medical science is obsessed with
'curing' everything from ingrown toenails to the Ebola plague. And rightly
so. We do not disparage them for doing what they are trained to do. We do,
however, suggest that it is the way of things for the human being to
succumb eventually to something that will take him/her out of each
lifetime, an event you know as the 6th internal monad.
For the soldier on the receiving end of
a bullet or bayonet, that monad might be a second long. For a woman
afflicted with cancer, it could be many long agonizing months. Each event
is part of the process of preparing for the final monad, the 7th, which is
The monastic tradition of the Christian religion used these words from its
scriptures in its burial service: In the midst of life we are in death.
That is not sentiment only. That is the bald truth. For those who must
watch and nurse a relative or friend through the 6th Internal Monad, it is
not very reassuring to remember these things. They are, nevertheless,
truths to live by.
We do not wish to paint an unrelievedly shadowed picture for your
contemplation tonight, but we would be remiss if we did not try to put
these realities into perspective for you. The Teachings which we offer
attempt to do just that.
Life is a journey of experiences of the
physical plane, all the experiences that can be crammed into one cycle.
Taken together with the lives of all those who have gone before and who
will come after you, it is as complete an experience of the physical plane
as is possible to imagine. Further, each of these experiences of illness,
loss, and grief, as well as the joys, bliss, and contentment of all your
lives, go to fulfilling the reason for creation: to be a wholeness, the
Being of the Tao. And each of you is a part of the Tao, just as each of us
is also. You just have a very difficult time remembering that when brought
face to face with the work of dying.
If you choose to, take a step back from the dailyness, especially, of your
connection with the frailty of the body and keep the goal of agape
somewhere in your consciousness. That is not easy sometimes, we admit, and
we grieve with you as you struggle to manage in this creation. We are here
to guide and teach. We have been were you are now, so we know how much it
takes to be human and we sincerely commiserate with your concerns. Life is
a challenge and a joy, a work and a bliss. When things seem darkest, we
hope you will remember these words and take some comfort from them. Go in
<DaveGregg> Lovely evening. Thanks, Nancy and Michael.
