Michael on True Rest and Fear

Michael on True Rest as an Antidote to Fear

excerpted from a private session with permission

Michael: We will utilize the following examples as a means to illustrate the restorative nature of true rest and the release of fear in the process:

Location: 4th century Indonesia  A young male king was promoted to the position of rulership when the father fragment was killed during a raid. The king was eager to accept,  but at the age of 14 was inexperienced and this fact was well known including by those who wished to usurp his power and take it for their own. This king was an early mature soul and prone to some depression and anxiety as he wrestled with his inner “demons” which were in stark contrast to the young soul family and advisors save one old soul sage who took him under his wing. It was at the suggestion of this old sage that the king took early morning walks in a nearby orchard, accompanied by his canine companion and it was during these walks which was by nature true for him that he was able to release his fear and relax, often times experiencing what would be called solutions to his problems, both personal and professional. Noted that this king continued this practice through his long reign which was in fact over 20 years."

Your Daily Tolle

"The mind is more comfortable in a landscaped park because it has been planned through thought; it has not grown organically. There is an order here that the mind can understand. In the forest, there is an incomprehensible order that to the mind looks like chaos. It is beyond the mental categories of good and bad. You cannot understand it through thought, but you can sense it when you let go of thought, become still and alert, and don't try to understand or explain. Only then can you become aware of the sacredness of the forest. As soon as you sense that hidden harmony, that sacredness, you realize you are not separate from it, and when you realize that, you become a conscious participant in it. In this way, nature can help you become realigned with the wholeness of life."

Times of Peace and of Transformation

Today I have been musing on the idea that there are times in our lives which are peaceful by all accounts and those which might be considered challenging. Looking back on my own life from my mid-50's, I can see that life has been wavelike with movement and never static, always changing, always bringing new opportunities for growth whether or not it seemed like that at the time.

Some of my friends and clients tell me that they wish for more peace and hope that the next challenge will be far off in the future so that they can get on with their lives. Yet others say they welcome whatever life brings to them, seeing all experiences as opportunities for personal growth and essence evolution. These folks do not resist life and instead accept what comes their way and for the most part seem far more content than those who avoid challenges. Both responses are valid, of course and up to the individual to choose what is right for them.

I do however find it curious that life is much like the waves of the ocean; movement never ceasing, sun always rising and setting, storms coming and going, each of us in our human bodies, riding the waves in our little boats. That is until we realize that we are part of the great ocean and jump in.

"Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment."

Your Daily Rumi

"Lovers share a sacred decree –
to seek the Beloved.
They roll head over heels,
rushing toward the Beautiful One
like a torrent of water.
In truth, everyone is a shadow of the Beloved –
Our seeking is His seeking,
Our words are His words.
At times we flow toward the Beloved
like a dancing stream.
At times we are still water
held in His pitcher.
At times we boil in a pot
turning to vapor –
that is the job of the Beloved.
He breathes into my ear
until my soul
takes on His fragrance.
He is the soul of my soul –
How can I escape?
But why would any soul in this world
want to escape from the Beloved?
He will melt your pride
making you thin as a strand of hair,
Yet do not trade, even for both worlds,
One strand of His hair.
We search for Him here and there
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side we ask,
“O Beloved, where is the Beloved?”
Enough with such questions! –
Let silence take you to the core of life.
All your talk is worthless
When compared to one whisper
of the Beloved."

Michael on the Moment Before Birth

"There is always however choice, and fragments have been known to change plans even at the last possible moment before reincarnating, or later.The seventh and final stage of the transition between lives is the moment before birth, as the fragment prepares once again to leave the astral interval.This is much like waiting for the airplane to take off, for there has been an anticipation of this next life as essence prepares for the next go around on the physical plane and there has often been communication between the new mother and the soon to be born fragment, although we will say again that the soul does not enter the body until the first breath, which is the first phase of the first monad."

Michael on the 1st Monad

excerpted with permission from a private session c. 2010

"The completion of the first monad heralds the entrance of the soul into the physical body and in most instances occurs at the first breath and not before. When this monad is first initiated, the mother fragment begins the labor process in earnest and from this point there can be a slowing down through the stages, or a speeding up which results in the birth or monadal completion. In this case it is more obvious we think that a transition is occurring both for the infant who is soon to be born and also experiencing the monad from inside the mother, and for the mother who is making the transition from caring for the fetus internally to caring for the infant externally which is also part of the monad itself. This transition from internal to external viability is key to a successful completion of monad one, and without it the monad can land solidly in the negative pole. As is true with other monadal transitions, it is not always clear if success will be the outcome, and in fact even in the last moments before birth a fragment can die for lack of oxygen, for example. The birth process is a delicate one, and the health of the mother fragment also plays a large part in the result as does the health of the fetus. In fact, it might not be amiss here to say that this is the only monad where it is necessary for a physical collaboration to take place, for even with the second and third monads where interaction with a parent fragment is preferred or even required for a successful completion, it is only with the first monad or birth that a very real and tangible collaborative and tandem experience occurs, and one which is key or central to the well being on all levels for both mother and child in the years that lie ahead should the birth be completed. We think this truth is not defined clearly for there is an energetic link from the mother to the child, or the father to the child depending on who hosted the fragment prebirth (reference here to other life forms where males are host parents) and this link remains intact and cannot be unraveled even if the fragments do not form a close bond due to circumstances which may have prevented such a bond from being secured. Suffice it to say that what occurs during the birth process and the experience of each fragments colors each subsequent monad, and a positive birth experience will do much to support subsequent monadal transitions during the course of each fragment's life."
