How much influence do we have for our next life? What are the conscious ways we can choose our future lives?

Question: How much influence do we have for our next life?  What are the conscious ways we can choose our future lives?

Answer: [I felt the answer coming strongly before we finished with the healing circle, so started with that and did the healing later.]

We are here with you tonight.  We ride the waves of energy with you at all times.  We especially enjoy your work with your little group as it gives “time” to more deeply and consciously connect together with all of us focused in the same way.

We are your entity, as a collective, helping to support you, teach you, guide you and to speak through you as the opportunities arise.  You have noticed that more and more as you become more consciously aware of our connection.

We help with the healing work you do and are grateful for the focus on healing you do in your circle.

Your world is changing rapidly as you know, as you said earlier today, it is time for the elders to step forward and make their presence known and felt more deeply (** see footnote).

It is time.  The time you and so many others have waited for.  Right here, right now, in this moment is all the power and influence you will ever need.
To think about the future lives is an exercise of stretching your mind and energy forward in a positive way as it gives you an opportunity to expand your awareness, which is always good.

As you expand into the future, you bring back ideas, thoughts and feeling that can help you in your life now.

There are very many factors that go into choosing a “future” life and all that contains.

The primary choices happen between lives when you meet and confer with those other souls who will share the life with you.  Your parents, your children, your friends, your helpers, your teachers, your other “players” in your own game of life.

There are many, many choices to be made.  Your personality in this life is affected by your essence to some extent and it has its own agenda as well.
[I was starting to feel some resistance here.]  As humans, you like to be “in control” of your life.  That is part of the human experience.  

In truth, the personality is playing the game it was created to play.  It does not like to be told that it doesn’t have control so we will avoid that.  We will say that it can have influence though keep in mind that the “future” lifetimes will have different personalities and they may want to “do it their way” just as you want to do it your way this time.

 The dance is a mutual one between essence and personality so be careful not to put too much burden on the “choice” you might make today that might serve as a noose to a future personality.

We feel that you are receiving the intent of our message though your personality isn’t really liking it.

We won’t push the point too hard.  Trust that you do “get it.”

We leave you with much love and joy at your progress.  Many doors are opening now and much will come to you to make our life feel wonderful.

We bid you adieu until we meet again in your dreams.

For the healings, I wrapped them both in Love and safety and protection, and just let that be without trying to get any more.  

** Footnote: Last night, I sent a note to Hank Wesselman asking if I could use one of his articles for my website.  I got a response this morning, and when I wrote back to thank him for agreeing to let me do that, I closed with, “With all the challenges our world is facing, I believe it’s time for the “older souls” and the “elders” (physical or non-physical) to step forward and make themselves known to assist in making our world a better place.  We’ve held back for a long time and let the younger ones run things, and we can see that they now don’t know how to fix the messes they’ve created.  Thank you for all you are and for all you are doing to make the world a better place :)”

I was conscious of the words coming through me rather than being written by me.
I just finished reading Hank’s three books: Spiritwalker, Medicinemaker and Visionseeker.  Someone had highly recommended them to me earlier this year.   Once I started reading them, I didn’t want to put them down so was very tickled to hear from him in person and for him to agree to let me use one of his articles.

Who do I hear in the listening sessions?

Question: Who do I hear in the listening sessions?

Answer, with a playful feeling:

And so, tonight, we are here again with you.  You have asked who we are.  We are One and we are Many.  Your usual name for us is Michael and you connect to parts of us at different times.

You also connect with your own guides.  The several who you have worked with at different times.  You also connect to the one you know as Sam or Samantha originally though not as much as before.  [When I first started automatic writing many years ago, I asked for a name and they said I could call it “Sam” for Samuel or Samantha, whichever way I want to think about them.]

You also connect with others you have known in physical life before.

You remember your former boyfriend who became a guide until he/she came back in this life as someone you know.  You remember others who have come to be with you at different times.

You have contacted the “spirit” side of your task companion and your essence twin when those were appropriate. 

You can contacted “the chorus” as you used to call them — that is more in line with the Michael entity energy and your own entity energy coming through to you.
So the answer to your question is many and various.  You also connect to your own essence and to your higher self.

All of these are part of the Allness and its many permutations.

It is like trying to separate your toe from your foot.  Yes, there can be “names” for these bits and pieces but they are part of the whole physical body and all parts are connected. 

Even your physical body being separate is an illusion created to help you where you are now.  Energetically, you are connected to all else and to everyone else.
There is only One and you are part of us, just as we are part of you.

There is no magic line that separates us from you — only in your own mind can you imagine the separation.  It is the game you play where you are now.  When you are not in a physical body, you merge back into the Oneness and know that we are all One.

The physical world allows you to experiment with separation and gives you the opportunity to appreciate the parts for their qualities.  When you only see the Oneness, you miss the individualization aspects.

To appreciate the individuality is why this game was created. 

[At that point, I just relaxed into the pleasant feeling and felt very relaxed, like I could just stay there for a long time.  I’ve been working on a project this week and struggling with it, and was feeling sleepy and very tired before the session.  Several times this week, I’ve called for support to help me “get” what I was struggling with.  After our session, I feel wide awake and very energized, and also like I want to go to sleep so I can rest in that lovely energy some more during the night :)]

8/12/2011: more info from my morning meditation:

Good morning!  We are your entity greeting you.  We are so close to you and so connected to you that you don’t feel us as “different” so you forget that we are here.  You can think of us as “Purple” and think of Michael as “Blue.”  When you see those colors, know that we are here with you.

[Wow!  I also noticed that I use blue and purple as my color scheme in my home with green for accent, so I see those colors all the time all around me :) What a great visual reminder!]

What are “angels”?

Question: What are “angels”?

Answer: We are here with you tonight and welcome you to our circle.  You have asked for connection and we are bringing those you would call angels into the circle.

They are beings who have taken on the task of helping humanity in many ways. They now fill your circle with love and peace and deep joy.

They are accessible to you or anyone who asks.  They do not live physical lives as their primary focus though some do choose that path to gain experience for their helping work.

You may notice them in your dreams, your may feel their energy during times of need or you may occasionally “see” them with your eyes if you look in a certain way.

They wait, they watch and they respond to calls for help.

Many of your spirit guides or other off-planet “friends” may be considered as angels by some people.

To others, WE might be considered to be angels.  For the person you referenced [someone who posted a comment on the MT list that she was an angel], she is having a physical lifetime though her primary purpose is to be the caring, helping presence for those in need throughout most of her existence.

Your question is a good one and can help you open a new doorway of understanding to allow you to help others who may want to believe but are afraid the angels don’t really exist.  

They very much do exist and are an important part of the spiritual realm.  Every group of souls has some number whose job is to provide loving, caring support for others in the group.  [I had a vague sense at the side of my brain that there are some number of angels allocated in each entity/cadre, though couldn’t quite grasp the details.]

Many people — including yourself — have experienced angels and seen them and felt their present when they are needed.

If you relax and ask for them to visit with you, they are willing to do that now.

[So, I laid down and immediately heard the song “Amazing Grace” — one of my favorites — and “saw” them has a huge chorus. At first, it seemed like they filled an entire concert hall then I realized it was larger than that — as if I was standing in a valley surrounded by mountains and they filled the valley with their light and songs and energy.  
  They sang to me, rocked me and surrounded me with light feathery touches.  It was very pleasant and I didn’t want to come back when time was called.
Many years ago, when I was feeling like I was at the “end of my rope,” I woke up in the middle of the night and saw an angel standing at the end of my bed.  She was golden, surrounded by light and sort of “fuzzy” – I don’t know how to describe it.  As if she was there but not there in solid physical form.  I could feel the loving energy of others all around me.  It was enough to give me hope that I would get though that time.  And, of course, I did.]
