Michael Chat with
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Tonight we come to you, as we always do, with our energy and
our understanding. These are qualities for us, not feelings. We do not have
feelings, as we have said before. But we enclose what you call feelings
within our understanding and offer it back to you as we connect with you all
We have a sense that connecting is at the top of the list for
discussion tonight. Every creature is connected in some way to something. We
do not say to everything, although that is not far from the truth. It is
however, a concept that is difficult of expressing. Therefore let us consider
being connected in a more simple, more personal way.
Each of you is here because you are connected with each other
and with us. This connection forms the energy that we can see, although we
know you cannot. If we were to describe it to you it would look like a small
vibrating line of light that encircles all of you beginning with us and ending
with us. Other times you connect, there is a similar line or cord of light between
you and the person or thing you are connecting with. Can you imagine connecting with a thing in the same way that you do a
person? Indeed, although the 'connection' is not of the same energy, it is an
energy and has some of the same attributes that person to person energy
Why should it matter whether you connect? Because this energy
that flows between the sender and the receiver is nourished by both. We remind you that solitude is a choice, that social
interaction is a choice, that even though you are sitting in front of a
screen looking at words, that you are choosing to be a part of this energy. Many of you feel the alone-ness of solitude and welcome it.
Others think they have had it forced on them and wish there could be an end to
Something like a scrying glass, you will experience what you
expect. We recognize the differences among you and we are able to send and
receive as needed for each of you individually. We suspect that you may wish
you had this talent! And so you will, eventually. But for the time being, as
part of the physical plane, you will each one experience alone-ness or one-ness
as your need is expressed. That is a Good Work and will become a support for
you, each one of you, as you need it.
Now we will take questions.
<DaveGregg> Meri, you have the first question...
<MeriNW> In March, I started using hypnosis to lose weight. I also received
my 2d degree Reiki. Many wonderful things have happened in my life since but I
haven't lost much weight. Michael, is there something going on with me,
blocking me or preventing me from getting back to my body's natural and normal
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The form of the body is composed of many elements. For some
the effort to lose some of the body's mass is easier than for others. For
some it requires a limiting of intake of nutrition, for others it requires a
rebalancing of the foods that can be tolerated. Hypnosis is a tool, not an
end. Along with it we suggest an evaluation of the body in question, to
determine whether there is a need for this rebalancing.
<MeriNW> How do I do the evaluation of my body?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> For the woman Meri, there is an element of dealing with parts
of the normal range of foods in a more discriminating way. We can see that
advice from a serious nutrition expert should offer some help in this
endeavor. Telling the mechanism of the appetite that it does not need more,
or that it 'ought' to be satisfied is usually futile. We offer our hope that
the fragment will find the appropriate assistance and then find that applying
the advice that follows will undo the 'block' that seems to be interfering
with good intentions.
<MeriNW> Thank you so much! I will do that!
<DaveGregg> Lou, you're next...
<lou> In choosing a daycare center for my 2 grandsons what should we
priorise and should they be together since it is for a period of at least 4
years I was asked by my daughter to consult for an answer should the 2 cousin
8 months in difference of age be together or not
<Nancy/MICHAEL> We do not see any reason why two children who are related by
similar rearing and needs should not enjoy the opportunity to spend days
together. There does not appear to be any obstacle to having them do this. Is
there a reason this question is being asked?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> What has prompted the concern?
<lou> because of the choice of two daycare one daughter has problems in
choosing. she has a choice while the other has made her choice. I will be
doing taxi at the end of the day so it would be convenient if they were at the
same place but we want the best for the boys.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> This becomes a matter of preference only. If it is a concern
on the part of one parent that she should choose a particular place for her
child and that place is not the choice of the other parent, then it may be
best to follow these choices. Then it is not a case of whether the two
children 'should' be together, but rather what does each parent want.
All life is choice. The exercise of choice is paramount to
your experience of the physical plane. This may be a very small exercise of
that fundamental element, but it is for all that still an exercise of
choice. There is no more serious activity that a human can engage in than to
deliberately and with forethought make choices.
We understand the problem of logistics. Perhaps it can be
gotten around in a way that does not inconvenience everyone too much.
<lou> merci beaucoup
<DaveGregg> LisaF, you're next...
<LisaF> Is there karma to be cleaned up between my son J. and myself?
And if so, where did it start in any past lives?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> There is an agreement to work out a monad based in dealing
with commitment and acceptance. There is a difference between karma and
agreements, as you know. This is an agreement for one to experience the
elements of being dependent through commitment and the other to be accepting
of this dependency. This is not a result of a past life experience that has
been carried forward into this one. It begins and very probably ends with this
life. We do not see that this agreement was set up for more than one
You should be able to recognize which part of the agreement
you have chosen.
<LisaF> Thank You.
<DaveGregg> Jack, you're next...
<Jack> How many of the so-called "12 Apostles" are there currently
incarnate? In what country are they located?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The 12 men who have been labeled Apostles of the old King
Jesus have lived a number of lives over the millennia. At the present time
four are living.
One is a lawyer in Nigeria, one is an embroiderer in a factory
in the Ukraine, one is a child of five in Idaho, and one is a woman of 84
years, having worked as a char woman in India.
<DaveGregg> LoriS, you're next...
<LoriS> I seem to still be in a pattern of having to move on every eight
weeks or so, not able to settle down into a home of my own. Can you please
give me some insight as to the agreements in place for this trend, especially
this last episode that is having me move once again?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Not all sequences of activity have cosmic elements. Your
peregrinations are a case in point. Each of your moves has been for a reason
that can be understood within the context of your life. We ask you this:
Have you thought through what you want from a living situation so that your
choice follows your thoughts?
<LoriS> I am trying to, yes.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Then perhaps there is a disconnect between what you truly want
and what you think you want. Which leads to taking on a situation as it
presents itself and then finding it does not work out. There can be a meeting
of needs and wants sometimes, but most of the time it requires an honest
appraisal of what is possible. We wonder if that appraisal has been made in
<LoriS> Thank you very much.
<DaveGregg> Kathryn, you're next...
<Kathryn> Napoleon Bonaparte felt a great affinity to Alexander the Great,
Julius Caesar and Charlemagne. He even believed he was the reincarnation of
Alexander and Charlemagne. What, if any, is the relationship between Napoleon
and these fragments?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The man Napoleon was a serious student of the generals named
and wished to be part of the heritage that they represented for him. His
sincerest wish was to be identified with them in the minds of the future.
<Kathryn> :-) he got his wish, then.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> That is all. There was a chief feature of profound arrogance
in the fragment and being associated with the historical figures who had made
their mark for posterity was his dearest wish. Yes, we would say he got his
<Kathryn> Thank you Michael.
<DaveGregg> Jyoti, you're next...
<Jyoti> My daughter has been diagnosed as having a small polyp in her
uterus. Will alternative therapy help to rid herself of it so as to avoid
invasive procedures or medication? She is a Reiki 2nd Degree.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> We hesitate to counsel between the knife and other approaches
when there is a growth. The presence of a growth characterized as a polyp or
small attachment is sometimes best left alone if it does not interfere with the
workings of the uterus, meaning with the monthly bleeding or with the
generation of a child. On the other hand, these swellings have been known to
become larger, as you know.
Professional opinion would seem to be in need here. If there
is a wish to avoid surgery, then perhaps close attention could be kept to
determine whether the growth is benign and whether it is stable. If it is
either not benign or becomes larger, there is probably no better remedy than
to get it cut out.
<Jyoti> She says she is not yet ready for motherhood/parenthood. Any
connection between this and the coming up of the polyp? Will reiki with
positive affirmations help? The doctor has suggested that it currently be
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The attention of an alternative remedy such as the energy of
reiki may be a support for the decision to wait and see. If there is a
choice to become pregnant in the future and it does not happen with ease,
then it may be necessary to discover why and that discovery may include a
further assessment of the swelling now present.
We do not see any connection between the decision to
postpone parenthood and the presence of the growth.
<DaveGregg> Vince, you're next...
<Jyoti> Thanks Nancy, Michael and Dave
<Vince> Greetings. Could Michael comment on Earth changes worldwide and
their significance over the next 20 years?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> This question about the climatic and geologic condition of the
planet earth is one with many parts and the further extension of putting it
into the focus of the next 20 years is somewhat beyond the scope of this
session which is devoted to fairly straightforward things.
We will say what we have said before: The earth has its own
agenda, has had for billions of years, and goes through various changes that
affect the tides, the temperatures, and the general condition of its
atmosphere as well as of its mantle. Their significance is one thing to the
earth, another to the humans who inhabit the planet.
We suppose the fragment means what significance does the
changes have for you.
<Vince> For us...as they seem to be increasing...but this may not be true in
the scheme of things...
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Again, it will depend on where the changes take place, whether
the alterations in formations and other parts of the physical places affect
how people live and whether they determine to try to work with the changes
such as rising sea levels or whether they attempt to forestall them. We are
not sanguine about t he latter.
There is a saying: It doesn't do to interfere with Mother
Nature. Human beings have been interfering with nature ever since the
discovery of fire, however.
<Vince> Yes, perception is that things are getting worse and humans are not
helping...just wondering about the changes at this time as they seem to be
worse than when I was a child...
<Nancy/MICHAEL> All we can say in a brief précis is that some work will very
likely be concentrated on trying to hold back t he tide, and other work will
concentrate on re-forming a civilization which cannot hold back the tide.
<Vince> Thank You...
<DaveGregg> AnnH, you're next...
<annh> In a recent chat, I had a powerful reaction to Mohammed as the
Transcendental Soul. Was I incarnate during that manifestation of the TS? If
so, what was my part in that culture/time?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The fragment Ann was the wife of one of the early converts to
the Prophet Mohammad's message. Neither wife nor husband were part of the
inner circle, so to speak, that surrounded the man Mohammad, but both were
serious students and followed when the newly converted left the city of Mecca
and migrated to the city to the north, to what became known as Medina.
<annh> Was he incarnate at that time? By he I mean Mohammed. In other words,
was he still alive when we converted?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The man Mohammad led the migration from Mecca to Medina,
returning after some years t o take up governance of the city of Mecca.
Therefore, yes, the fragment Ann and her spouse knew the man Mohammad well and
often ate meals with him.
<annh> Thank you!
<DaveGregg> Woodlark, you're next...
<woodlark> My question's about an element of connecting with the
world: getting past the resistance & barriers to change; and related to
that, letting myself receive on a less-than-superficial level. Is it a matter
of timing, patience, karma, making choices, part of my agreement structure for
this life....Is this the other pole of my persistence? Or am I giving up too
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Connecting with the world is the work of each fragment. It is
the reason for existence on the physical plane. We are a little suspicious of
an assertion that one is balked by barriers to change. If there is one
certainty about the physical plane it is that there will be change. Nothing
about it is static and all creatures are evidence of this certainly.
<woodlark> I'm referring to intentional changes, though, of habits for
<Nancy/MICHAEL> (You do not say how old you are. What is you role?)
<woodlark> Sage, old level one. I'm currently 55 Y.O. in this incarnation.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The fragment is at the beginning of the Old level and has not
yet achieved a comfortable connection with it. For the most part the fragment
is still in the throes of the last lives of the Mature level and its
involvement with relationships. The somewhat cooler atmosphere of the Old
level is daunting and somewhat off-putting. That may be the cause of the
malaise that has colored the fragment's days.
A sage has fundamental tools for meeting newness and change
without being thrown by their implied demands.
<woodlark> So, how do I learn to be an old soul ? :)
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Becoming an Old Soul is a matter of choice by the higher Self
in connection with Essence. Between lives the Higher Self has chosen to say
that the lessons and experience of the Mature levels have been absorbed and
that it is time to move on. It may take a few lifetimes, however, for the
fragment to become attuned to the energy of Old-ness. There is no manual to
follow, no course work which is necessary prerequisite for becoming Old. It
just takes living. The fragment will 'learn' how to be an Old Soul by being
<woodlark> Thank you! This feels like a breath of fresh air on the problem.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> We are happy to think that we have blown away a few
cobwebs. (Michael is grinning)
<DaveGregg> Avatar, you're next...
<avatar415> Sumerian myth states that the earth was created from the
collision of Tiamat, a large watery planet, with another planet called Marduk.
This collision broke Tiamat apart, spinning off Earth into a new orbit and
leaving an asteroid field where Tiamat originally was. Sumerian myth states
that the earth was created from the collision of Tiamat, a large watery
planet, with another planet called Marduk. This collision broke Tiamat apart,
spinning off Earth into a new orbit and leaving an asteroid field where Tiamat
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The tale of the planet's Tiamat and Marduk are another
creation myth to explain the cosmology of the planet earth. All of the planets
that orbit the sun of your system were created from fragments that were once
larger bodies. Earth is no different. It was not ever a part of a 'watery
planet' named Tiamat and its nemesis Marduk. This is a fable that is highly
entertaining, but has no basis in fact.
<avatar415> thrust into Earth orbit. Is any of this true?
<avatar415> has Sitchen misinterpreted the history of Sumeria?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> There are elements of fact in this fragment's attempt to bring
order out of the chaos of prehistory. Not all of his assertions are creative
imagination. The story of the 'creation' of the planet, however, is pure
<avatar415> Is there a 13th Planet?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> There was, but it was destroyed in a collision in its very
<avatar415> Thanks , Michael.
<DaveGregg> Cheryl, you're next...
<ocean-cheryl> I would like to know what past lives I have had with Glenn,
and when, and how they are affecting our interactions at this time.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> There were two lives these fragments shared, one during the
settling of the northeast areas of the present United States, one earlier in
the country that was a part of the Incan Empire near the present country of
Columbia in South America. This lifetime was lived in some 1000 years ago.
In both connections the two fragments were male, once as
master and slave, once with the roles reversed. The residue that can be felt
in this lifetime has to do with the element of power: Who is in charge? In
the agreement to experience the monad of master/servant (slave) there were
no loose ends to tie up. The agreement was accepted and finished. There is
now only the flavor of that agreement.
<ocean-cheryl> Fascinating, thank you
<DaveGregg> Mario, you're next...
<Mario> should I move from places (house) and even of country? It
seems like a good moment to do so according to my Spiritual Guides, who have
been counseling me on this and many other things.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> The fragment Mario has asked this question before. We cannot
say what he 'should' do. We do not predict and we do not coerce. He will do
what he chooses to do. We remind him that investigating the possibilities
will generate much more information than this hoping to be told what to do.
<Mario> So, should I receive counsel from my Spiritual Guides?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> If the fragment is in touch with his guides, then that is
certainly an avenue that could be investigated and given much thought.
<Mario> Many questions: too little chances. Thanks so much!!! :D
<Nancy/MICHAEL> We repeat what we have said before: Choices are the fabric
of the physical plane and from them are made the garments that cover the
fragment from birth do death. Choosing is a part of life. In some respects,
the greatest part.
<Mario> thanks!! ;)
<DaveGregg> Glenn you have the final question.
<asage> I was wondering about the Rev. Jules Keating, born 4/2/38. Died
1998. Has he reincarnated?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> This fragment is not presently in a body. The soul is
currently very busy with an agenda that it and its guides have chosen for the
<asage> Thank you.
<DaveGregg> Do you have any closing comments?
<Nancy/MICHAEL> When there is need for reaching out to others it sets up a
reciprocity between the one and the other. We have described this interaction
many times, bringing the thoughts of connection to the fore so that there is a
constant undercurrent of knowing that no matter how solitary or how busy each
of you is the energy of connection is always present. It may seem that we
have pounded this thought to its thinnest edge, but it is our experience that
no matter how often or how greatly we bring it to mind for you, there is still
the need. We have remarked before on how very isolated you are and it is with
a certain sorrow that we recognize this.
The reasons are many and are not necessary to resolving this
misery. For it is a misery for those who experience it. We understand this.
And so if we seem to constantly offer words on connecting, on coming together,
on reaching out, it is because we see the need.
Each time each one of you sends a thought to another, each
time each one of you joins with others here to learn and to gather strength
for the work that you do, you thin the shroud of isolation that surrounds you
most of the time.
Sharing is not just a matter of exchanging. Sharing can be
the joining of unspoken thought, the welding of intellect and emotion and
offering it between the giver and the taker. In every human connection, we
remind you that sometimes you give and sometimes you take. If you cannot give, you create further barriers between
yourself and the other. If you cannot receive, you promote those same
barriers, preventing the connection you want.
It is not easy to alter one's attitude if either of these
factors exist, but we suggest that the alternative is something too many of
you know too well: a sense of being without love. There is no greater energy
that can be shared than the energy of love. Go in peace.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> Thank you, Michael
<DaveGregg> Thank you, Nancy & Michael. And thanks for filling-in on such
short notice. :-)
<Kathryn> Thank you Michael. Thank you Nancy
<ShannonB> Thank you, Nancy.
<annh> Thank you Nancy. thank you Michael!
<ocean-cheryl> thank you Michael, Nancy, and Dave
<SylviaD> Thank you, Michael and Nancy. Interesting, as usual!
<LoriS> Thank you Nancy and Michael, goodnight everyone.
<Nancy/MICHAEL> You are all most welcome. I'm glad I could be here tonight.
My choice! :-)
