    12 Little Known Secrets about Karma
    Karma+-+going+round.
    What is Karma? Karma is the Sanskrit word for action.
    It is equivalent to Newton's law of ‘every action must have a reaction’.
    When we think, speak or act we initiate a force that will react accordingly.
    To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation, here is what you need to know about karmic laws. - See more at: http://www.riseearth.com/2013/10/12-little-known-laws-of-karma-that-will.html#sthash.hE5zJMpw.dpuf
    This returning force maybe modified, changed or suspended, but most people will not be able eradicate it.

    This law of cause and effect is not punishment, but is wholly for the sake of education or learning.

    A person may not escape the consequences of his actions,
    but he will suffer only if he himself has made the conditions ripe for his suffering.
    Ignorance of the law is no excuse whether the laws are man-made or universal.
    To stop being afraid and to start being empowered in the worlds of karma and reincarnation,
    here is what you need to know about karmic laws.


    1. THE GREAT LAW

    - "As you sow, so shall you reap". This is also known as the "Law of Cause and Effect".

    - Whatever we put out in the Universe is what comes back to us.

    - If what we want is Happiness, Peace, Love, Friendship... Then we should BE Happy, Peaceful, Loving and a True Friend.

    2. THE LAW OF CREATION

    - Life doesn't just HAPPEN, it requires our participation.

    - We are one with the Universe, both inside and out. - Whatever surrounds us gives us clues to our inner state.

    - BE yourself, and surround yourself with what you want to have present in your Life.

    3. THE LAW OF HUMILITY

    - What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.

    - If what we see is an enemy, or someone with a character trait that we find to be negative, then we ourselves are not focused on a higher level of existence.

    4. THE LAW OF GROWTH

    - "Wherever you go, there you are".

    - For us to GROW in Spirit, it is we who must change - and not the people, places or things around us.

    - The only given we have in our lives is OURSELVES and that is the only factor we have control over.

    - When we change who and what we are within our heart our life follows suit and changes too. THE

    5. LAW OF RESPONSIBILITY

    - Whenever there is something wrong in my life, there is something wrong in me.

    - We mirror what surrounds us - and what surrounds us mirrors us; this is a Universal Truth.

    - We must take responsibility what is in our life.

    6. THE LAW OF CONNECTION

    - Even if something we do seems inconsequential, it is very important that it gets done as everything in the Universe is connected.

    - Each step leads to the next step, and so forth and so on.

    - Someone must do the initial work to get a job done.

    - Neither the first step nor the last are of greater significance,

    - As they were both needed to accomplish the task.

    - Past-Present-Future they are all connected...

    7. THE LAW OF FOCUS

    - You can not think of two things at the same time.

    - When our focus is on Spiritual Values, it is impossible for us to have lower thoughts such as greed or anger.

    8. THE LAW OF GIVING AND HOSPITALITY

    - If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth.

    - Here is where we put what we CLAIM that we have learned, into actual PRACTICE.

    9. THE LAW OF HERE AND NOW

    - Looking backward to examine what was, prevents us from being totally in the HERE AND NOW.

    - Old thoughts, old patterns of behavior, old dreams...

    - Prevent us from having new ones.

    10. THE LAW OF CHANGE

    - History repeats itself until we learn the lessons that we need to change our path.

    11. THE LAW OF PATIENCE AND REWARD

    - All Rewards require initial toil.

    - Rewards of lasting value require patient and persistent toil.

    - True joy follows doing what we're suppose to be doing, and waiting for the reward to come in on its own time.

    12. THE LAW OF SIGNIFICANCE AND INSPIRATION

    - You get back from something whatever YOU have put into it.

    - The true value of something is a direct result of the energy and intent that is put into it.

    - Every personal contribution is also a contribution to the Whole.

    - Lack luster contributions have no impact on the Whole, nor do they work to diminish it.

    - Loving contributions bring life to, and inspire, the Whole.

    "We believe what we are all continuously telling ourselves very important things, so, what are your thoughts saying to you ??? "

    -Susan Lynne Schwenger aka The eXchanger


    An excellent question. If we knew what our thoughts were saying, I daresay the dialog would soon become quite still. Is there such a thing as a wordless thought? The feeling is like . . .

    [​IMG]

    There is content beyond word and metaphor; experience seems to capture the whole of it. Also it has the feeling of jumping off a perfectly good boat . . .

    [​IMG]

    What my thoughts are saying now is that there is another kind of thinking (a kind that heals body and soul) that I've forgotten. It affirms who we are and our nature every moment of self-awareness. It's a way of seeing more directly without distraction of structure and form. And it's something I can put into practicee..
    What I need to do now is actualize these thoughts and give it a test run.

    A GRAND CYCLE is a phrase used to describe one journey as a fragment from Tao, all the way through the incarnations,
    the Astral Plane, the Causal Plane, Mental Plane, Messianic and Buddhic Planes and reuniting with Tao again.


    A soul can then choose to leave again and choose a new Role to use through a whole other Grand Cycle
    and live as a completely different species on a different planet with different Essence Twin, Entity, etc.


    If you think of your soul as a Spark that takes on a Role for a Grand Cycle,
    then you could say that a Grand Cycle is like a single lifetime is to your Role.


    According to Michael, most on this planet average about 3 Grand Cycles,
    but many of the current older souls can have 9 or more.


    They don't really have any tangible effect, but for those with higher numbers of Grand Cycles there does tend to be a deeper,
    more profound spirituality about them, and they "wise up" faster than others, it seems.
    This is why, say, some Baby Souls can actually seem older in soul age than they are,
    because of that deep undercurrent of experience within the spark/soul.
    I hope that helped!
    Troy

    The 8th Chakra ~ The Seat of the Soul

    The conflicts of a human's life are directly proportional to the distance
    at which energy of personality exists separately from the harmonic frequencies
    that emanates from the divine spark or soul.

    The seat of the soul, the eighth chakra, holds the ancient knowledge of our soul contracts and ultimately, our life purpose.

    The 8th Chakra is the energy center of divine love, of spiritual compassion and spiritual selflessness.

    The seat of the soul is the major core star of our energetic system,
    also holding the records of what our souls had agreed as specific lessons in our upcoming lifetimes and past lives.

    Reincarnation: the 35 steps of soul evolution
    35 Steps According to many spiritual teachers, all human beings are, in reality, spiritual beings on a human journey.
    We reincarnate as human beings in order to evolve as souls.
    Our ultimate aim is to become fully conscious and capable as unique individual expressions of All That Is.
    It is a long journey, but that’s okay because the soul is eternal.
    Soul Evolution The soul’s journey is really a process of evolving. T
    his means growing in consciousness, steadily progressing through different levels or stages of consciousness.
    How do we grow in consciousness? Through taking on challenging experiences in physical form.
    These cause us to make important, “soul-searching” choices and call upon us to discover our inner resources.
    But why in physical form? Why would a perfectly happy spiritual being decide to inhabit the physical realm with all of its limitations and difficulties?
    It is precisely so that we can experience the state of what feels like total separation from others and from the rest of reality.
    Only by going into this physically separated human form can we know ourselves as beings in our own right, and not just as … well …
    undifferentiated blobs of energy.
    Being physical throws our experiences and choices into extremely sharp relief in a way that is not possible otherwise.
    This is how we learn who we are and how to become all that we are. In other words:
    Choice and the ramifications of choice provide the essential lessons of life.
    In a very real sense, you choose to be here in order
    to make choices.
    Messages from Michael
    The 35 Steps
    We are here to know ourselves and be all we can be, step by step.
    And according to the teachings of the entity known as Michael, there are 35 steps to the reincarnational process.
    The body and personality you have now are merely the vehicles you have chosen for this latest step in your journey.
    But why 35 steps? Why not 36 steps? Or 10? Or 100?
    It is simply because, according to Michael, we go through five major stages of evolution through reincarnation.
    And, within each stage there are seven increments or levels to be completed.
    (Yes, it is rather like a computer game.) 5 x 7 = 35. 35 steps
    35-steps.
    Each single step requires a whole lifetime to complete.
    In fact, each step usually requires more than one lifetime.
    Typically, the entire journey of 35 steps takes well over a hundred lifetimes.
    So let’s look at the journey in more detail.
    We’ll start with the five major stages of soul evolution through reincarnation.
    The Five Stages The Michael teachings describe a sequence of five “cycles” or stages of soul evolution.
    They are named after the stages of human development:
    Stage 1: The INFANT Soul
    Stage 2: The BABY Soul [also known as CHILD Soul]
    Stage 3: The YOUNG Soul
    Stage 4: The MATURE Soul
    Stage 5: The OLD Soul
    Each of these five corresponds to a specific level of development in capability and self-awareness within the individual soul.
    Each stage is also characterised by a different learning focus that is more subtle than the previous ones.
    Michael Newton Incidentally, the same pattern of soul evolution has been identified by the hypnotherapist Michael Newton (right).
    His groundbreaking research was published in the best-selling book Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives (Llewellyn, 1994).
    The books by Newton and his students draw upon thousands of transcripts of people who, under hypnotic regression,
    have re-experienced being between lives. From the higher perspective of their soul they are able to explain what happens after death and before birth.
    This includes information about the levels of consciousness through which reincarnating souls evolve.
    What Newton and others have discovered is that souls between lives exist in light-form,
    and that each soul emanates a particular colour of the spectrum which indicates its current level of consciousness.
    The spectrum begins at white (all colours) but then goes through red, yellow, green, blue, to deep purple and violet.
    From low frequency to high frequency.
    The least evolved souls — the “newbies” — have a pinkish hue.
    The oldest souls — those nearing the end of the whole reincarnational cycle — have a blueish hue.
    Although the spectrum is a continuum, Dr. Newton has found that it can be divided into five distinct stages or levels of evolvement,
    from Level I to Level V. These can be mapped onto the five stages given in the Michael teachings, from Infant soul to Old soul.
    So, for example, souls in the middle (or third) stage of reincarnation are referred to as “Young souls” in the Michael teachings
    and they are at what Newton would call “Level III”. They will have a yellowish or golden hue.
    (As an aside, both Newton and the Michael entity also identify higher levels of soul evolution which do not involve reincarnation.)
    The stages of reincarnation (or soul age) can also be likened to the stages of metamorphosis we see in nature,
    such as egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, butterfly.
    In reincarnation, though, what changes is not the physical form but the mode of consciousness, especially the form of self-awareness and
    — as a result — the way of relating to others.
    Soul age and personality Soul age will affect how a personality comes across in certain ways.
    Infant souls focus on immediate survival needs. They flourish in simple environments close to nature, such as remote tribes or rural, pastoral settings.
    In the context of modern society, however, they can come across as uncivilised simpletons or yokels, and may even be deemed to be psychopathic
    or have some sort of developmental disorder.
    Psychologically, they are naive, impulsive and “pre-conventional”, acting on impulse or habit with little or no thought for consequences.
    Because they lack both social understanding and self-inhibition, they are capable of committing antisocial or immoral acts without any sense of wrongdoing.
    As such, they do not fit well within modern society and may end up in prison or in psychiatric units.
    While infant souls may lack the moral principles, social graces and cultural understanding of older souls, they are in a sense completely innocent,
    being without pretense or agenda.
    [Well-known example: Fred West, serial killer]
    Baby souls, in contrast to Infant souls, think a great deal about their actions. Their lives are about safety, security, structure and order — rigidly so.
    Both their beliefs and their actions are largely rule-bound, so they are often ultra-conservative, traditionalist, orthodox, upright, moralistic, religiously devout,
    and mindful of law and order. That said, they will occasionally give in to temptation, or temper tantrum, and break the rules themselves
    — but then might find themselves tortured with guilt and shame.
    They come across to older souls as rather “square” – conscientious, conventional, conformist.
    Baby soul communities tend to be highly principled and civilised (think of the Amish).
    They are acutely aware of the rights and wrongs of people’s actions, including their own, though they have little insight into the motives behind them.
    Bad behaviour is sinful, and that’s that. [Well-known example: Jimmy Swaggart]
    Young souls tend to be extravert, outward-bound, worldly, frenetically energetic, brash, competitive, political, ambitious and individualistic.
    They are more ego-driven than personalities at any other soul age, keen to prove themselves in the world at large.
    They like to think for themselves, assert their own opinions, and follow their own agenda, with a certainty that their own way is by far the best way.
    They are generally attracted to some form of worldly success
    — fame, fortune, power, glory. In fact, they are more fearful of death than souls at other stages,
    and those who aren’t sure about life after death may be anxious to make a big impact on the world stage
    – to create some kind of symbolic immortality for themselves. Young souls are acutely aware of their own goals and intentions but do not really question them.
    [Well-known example: Napoléon Bonaparte.]
    Mature souls tend to be thoughtful, reflective and sincere within themselves, and sensitive and empathetic towards others.
    Psychologically, their awareness is no longer egocentric (in the sense of being limited to a single perspective),
    but capable of accommodating multiple perspectives. In fact, the self-serving ego comes to be seen as a problem,
    something to be overcome — though in reality it is more a case of incorporating it into a broader level of awareness.
    This tension between ego and ego-transcendence, or between having both a personal agenda and a desire to be more open and authentic,
    makes life much more complicated — sometimes overwhelmingly so. On the one hand, mature souls reject narrow-minded values.
    Yet on the other hand, they can empathise with whoever holds those same values. Fixed opinions are replaced by a sense of ever-shifting perspectives
    — “It all depends on how you look at it”. This disappearance of solid ground kicks off a search for deeper meaning and self-understanding
    — whether through art, psychology, philosophy or spirituality. Politically, mature souls tend to be liberal and inclusive,
    and disapprove of any kind of narrow chauvinism. To younger souls, they can come across as bleeding-heart liberals.
    They tend to question everything, including their own motives, and are prone to do a lot of soul-searching (literally).
    [Well known example: Barack Obama.]
    OId souls tend to exude some degree of depth, gravitas or wisdom that is quite unmistakable.
    Having moved beyond the conflicts of the mature soul, they are also lighter and have a sense of joyous freedom
    — the freedom to enjoy being very much in the world, but not of it.
    They are relatively calm, measured, untroubled and stable, unattached to social structures and cultural expectations,
    being sure of their own existence and inner strengths and their compassion for others.
    Their focus is on true self-expression and fulfillment, consciously participating in the evolution of all-that-is.
    As such, they tend to go their own unique way in life, letting go and letting be, in a detached way that may seem very weird and eccentric to younger souls
    . Late-stage old souls often focus on teaching spiritual wisdom with great compassion.
    [Well-known example: Osho]
    Note: These descriptions emphasise the differences between stages.
    In reality, though, there is a gradual blend from one stage to the next.
    A person at the start of the Mature stage, for example, will act mostly like a Young soul but with elements of Mature soul nature beginning to emerge.
    The lessons of each stage Here are the five stages of soul evolution through human reincarnation,
    together with the typical learning experiences associated with each stage:
    soul-age-focus-2-450.
    o we begin reincarnating as Infant souls, complete novices at physical existence
    . At this first stage we are largely in a state of incompetence and terror, frankly.
    But through experiences and choices we learn and grow. We steadily progress from being Infant souls to Baby souls to Young souls to Mature souls.
    Finally, we enter the fifth stage as accomplished Old souls, the experts of human existence.
    As infant souls we learned about choices having to do with survival, as baby souls choices having to do with moral codes and ethics,
    as young souls choices having to do with mastery of achievement, as mature souls choices having to do with relationships,
    and as old souls choices having to do with the nature of oneness with the Tao.
    An infant soul would therefore not understand the choices of an old soul
    although an older soul would likely have more understanding of the nature of younger soul choice having had them.


    Soul levels in the human population

    The six or seven billion people on the planet span the whole range of stages, but the average is said to be somewhere just past the mid-point of stage 3 (see chart below). In other words, this world is currently dominated by Young souls whose primary focus is competitive self-advancement.
    soul-age-curve-490.
    The seven steps within each stage

    Within each stage there are seven discrete steps to go through. In the Michael teachings, they are called “levels”, so in each stage we proceed from 1st level to 7th level. Calling these “levels” can be a bit confusing (since Newton refers to the five major stages as “levels”), so I sometimes prefer to call them “steps”.
    So each stage of reincarnation has seven distinct learning steps. For example, we begin the whole journey at step 1 as Infant souls, learn that lesson, then undertake step 2 as Infant souls, and so on. On completing the 7th step of the Infant stage, we then begin the 1st step of the Baby stage.
    35-steps.
    The early steps in any stage are about experiencing life at this new stage of evolution, learning the essential lessons through appropriate experiences.
    The later steps are about expressing those lessons, demonstrating this level of consciousness in action.
    For example, in the Young soul stage, the first three steps — from 1st level Young soul to 3rd level Young soul — are about discovering the meaning of free will and self-determination; the last three steps — 5th level Young soul to 7th level Young soul — are about demonstrating the meaning of free will and self-determination in action. (The middle step — 4th level Young soul — is about consolidating the lessons learned.)
    The first step or level of any stage is like putting a toe in the water; the final step is like teaching others how to swim:
    1st LevelInitiation into the new stage. “Toe in the water.” First glimpses of the new consciousness. We come to recognise that there is a whole new way of being ahead of us, and we respond to the call, even though as yet it is beyond our comprehension.
    2nd LevelBuilding foundations. Wading in and out. Comparing and contrasting the old and new consciousness. We come to understand what is essential and different about this higher level, though it still remains ‘ahead’ of us, not quite within us.
    3rd LevelRising to the challenge. Taking the plunge. We determinedly commit ourselves to actively embrace and explore the new consciousness.
    4th LevelIntegration. Relaxing into it, “enjoying the water.” We now identify ourselves with this way of understanding self, life and others – this is our truth. We fully incorporate and consolidate the new consciousness into our own being.
    5th LevelExpression. Splashing about – “Look at me!” We openly share and communicate our new, true sense of self and of life’s meaning. We feel drawn to broadcast our truth, to “go public” with it.
    6th LevelDemonstration. Giving value and benefit to others. “Being a life guard.” Our new consciousness is put to the test. We also burn off any outstanding karma incurred in the earlier steps of this stage.
    7th LevelMastery. Peak performance. We have complete understanding and control of our awareness at this level. We know exactly what we are doing. We may feel like a role model. Hmm… What’s next?
    This sequence of seven steps is repeated through each stage, making 35 steps in all from the beginning of reincarnation to the end.

    The Michael Teaching™
    Add comments


    The Michael Teaching™ is a comprehensive metaphysical philosophy that has four major interrelated aspects:
    1. Presents a cosmology describing the structure of God, as Michael calls it (the TAO), Nature and the physical Universe and how these are constructs that provide the platform for the Spiritual Design of Human Experience.
    2. Provides a complete description of the building blocks of human psychology in the form of a Personality Trait System known as the Overleaves. The Overleaves are the “templates” of perception and style that allow for both consistent similarities within the human family; while allowing for virtually infinite variation and diversity. At the same time!
    3. Describes the foundations of World Views underlying social movements and group dynamics; redefining the concepts of spiritual evolution in terms of Soul Age and Soul Level.
    4. Offers anyone, who is open-minded and personally activated, to partake in direct consultation with the Michael Entity in a channeling session. This can take place with assistance of a practiced professional channel, or the individual making direct contact in a conscious trance or Quija Board. (Michael does not discriminate, but it does take practice, focus, and aptitude.)



    Where did the Michael Teaching™ originate?


    The Michael Teaching concepts have derived from many sources: including the works of Gurdieff and Ospensky and from the historic precepts of the Sufi’s. It was first introduced in the book “Messages From Michael” by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro in 1978. More recently, the Michael Teachings have evolved from a number of dedicated students, including Channels: Sarah Chambers, JP Van Hulle, Aaron Christaean, Jose Stevens, Simon Warwick-Smith, Emily Baumbach, Joya Pope, Larry Byrum, Holly Coleman, Shepherd Hoodwin, Troy Tolly, Marina Tompkins, Terri Benning, Philip Whitmeyer, David Gregg and Stephen Cocconi.
    Collectively, this material has evolved into this form. Who or what is Michael? For the Channeler, Michael is a separate but shared identity. Having existance unto itself, Michael describes itself as a group soul of 1,050 members. Using their own terminology to describe spiritual evolution, they say they reside at a level of soul development known as the “Causal Plane.” All once human, they have merged together and combined their knowledge, skill, and wisdom gained from thousands of human lifetimes. Michael has compassion for us, knowing the human path can be hard. They gain clarity and philanthropic karma for serving us here on the physical plane.



    Overleaves as part of the Michael Teaching


    To begin, the Michael Teaching is a metaphysical view of creation and the human experience.
    The Universal Force driving this creation is referred as the TAO, rather than God, in an effort to remove the gender stereotyping of a masculine deity.
    The Overleaf Energies are the “flavors” or “primary colors” of the TAO. It follows then, that when an unique Essence or Soul
    decides to experience individuality (separation from God) that the building blocks available to it are the same basic materials of the Universe
    itself. (i.e. the Overleaves)
    . As a personality trait system, the Overleaves have been channeled and are validated intuitively and empirically by Michael Students,
    rather than statistically like other personality trait systems. Each Overleaf trait has distinct, identifiable physical appearance and energy signature
    that one can be trained to discern and recognize. Michael Channel’s have been born with this talent though refinement of the skill occurs with practice.

    Why would one study this material?


    This is a teaching based upon the principle that all people deserve compassion.
    And, there is no better place to start than with yourself. When we speak of Self-Love we are not referring to indulging in ego-aggrandizing Narcissism.
    Rather, the Michael philosophy promotes the kind of unconditional respect of our shared human dilemma, a term the Greeks called “AGAPE.”
    Equipped with Self-Knowledge, Self-Forgiveness, and rejuvenated with Self-Esteem, you achieve “amour-propre”
    and become empowered to resolve conflict between yourself and others.
    Thus, you set an example and model the kind of behavior and attitudes that can overcome hostility and engender trust.

    my 1st Grand Cycle as Scholar
    FROM MICHAEL: This Cycle appears to have been lived through a species that might be seen as rather etheric and gossamer in body, ghostly if you will.
    This species is related to descendants who would come to be known as Lemurians on Earth.
    My 2nd Grand Cycle as Warrior
    FROM MICHAEL: This Cycle appears to have been lived through a species that might be seen as electrical currents,
    existing in a medium of a planet wrought with electrical storms.
    My 3rd Grand Cycle as King FROM MICHAEL: This Cycle appears to have been lived as an insectoid species that would most resemble a Praying Mantis,
    on a tiny planet lush with the equivalent of trees and plants.
    This species was profoundly philosophical, with a great emphasis on meditation and exploring off-planet via means that were not physical.
    This had led them to become rather adept at Astral Travel, visiting the dreams of many civilizations. This species still exists.
    My 4th Grand Cycle as Priest
    FROM MICHAEL: This Cycle appears to have been lived through a silicon-based species that inhabited Earth previous to the current population of Sentience on the planet.
    This species would seem to be lava-like to you, and many of our students who lived as this Cycle tend to have a strong attraction to ancient and prehistoric levels of life on this planet,
    as well as a strong attraction to the Mineral and Shamanic kingdoms.
    [Geraldine says:] I'd like more information on the first sentient species on earth, the silicon- based or "lava-like" species whose "bones" are agates.
    This is the first species I'm aware of that wasn't carbon-based or alive in any of our current meanings of the word.
    How long did their Grand Cycle last, what types of things did they "do" to evolve, how did evolution/civilization express itself, etc.
    [Michael] The silocon-based life forms were flourishing approximately 4000 million years ago, just after a meteor collision with Earth
    that prompted the Sentient development within the molten elements.
    Consciousness exists in all forms, and all matter, to some extent, so the bacteria aboard the meteor, having been completely destroyed,
    transferred Sentience to what you might see as molten or lava-like "blobs" by accelerating the growth of consciousness for some time, first.
    The Sentience, then, had transferred mid-cycle, so to speak. Having already been in bodies that you would recognize as bacteria, being "molten blobs" was not a stretch.
    My 5th Grand cycle as Priest
    FROM MICHAEL: This Grand Cycle appears to have been lived through a species that was disc-shaped and capable of flight and burrowing.
    A great amount of the "surface" of the planet was a thick, tangible gaseous cloud, if you will, where most of this species spent its lives working through its Cycle.
    Rather than reincarnate into new bodies, this species would eventually "crash" to the more solid surface,
    burrowing beneath the ground in a long hibernation that allowed for a regeneration of its magnetic qualities that allowed for it to exist in permanent flight for each lifetime.
    The entire electromagnetic system would shut down, allowing for a reset of Overleaves and programming,
    which allowed for each Essence to keep using whatever body it began with.
    Mating was a matter of friction, in that the rubbing together of two or more bodies would create "sparks" that the gaseous cloud
    would then accumulate around, creating a new body for a new Essence.
    All fragments were in bodies before the first body actually died, which is when the first Essence cycled off.
    From there, the Cycling off came rapidly for each successive wave, as each removal of a body would cause a weakening of the magnetic dynamic,
    generating faster cycles of "crashes," until no more bodies could stay afloat.
    My 6th Grand Cycle as King:
    FROM MICHAEL: This appears to have been through a species that would be considered "snake-like," though some of the body types had wings that allowed for flying.
    The biological wings were an indicator of those with status in some way, which the King Essences gravitated toward, even after development of an artificial means
    of gliding was adapted by the species. This was the only sentient species on the planet, or in the star system.
    My 7th Grand cycle as Sage:
    FROM MICHAEL: This appears to have been through a species that was highly-mobile, and quite eager for off-planet travel,
    as the body types were of quite a flexible and resilient nature, with no bones, or required shapes, so much so that they may have been seen as "rubbery."
    Thoughts shaped the bodies. Depending upon the cycle of civilizations at the time, body shapes were agreed upon
    and generally adhered to, but as the species aged in soul age, thoughts gave way to moods and feelings, and bodies took any number of shapes
    to reflect this more honest representation. This species traveled its star system freely over half of its existence.
    My 8th Grand Cycle as Priest
    FROM MICHAEL: This appears to have been in a humanoid species that would be difficult to differentiate from your current species,
    except for the upholding of intuitive and psychic development that allowed for not only telepathic communications as a standard,
    but also such things as psychokinesis, etc. This species currently still exists, but as a completely new Design of sentience,
    and actively explores the galaxies using these skills.
    My 9th Grand Cycle as Artisan
    FROM MICHAEL: This is a cycle that most of our students shared together on a planet with only two species;
    one being large amphibian species and one being small tree-dwelling humanoids.
    A eco-dynamic was in place that was specific to the symbiotic nature of these two very different species.
    Because there was no process of weather that would bring rain, the trees would suffer without water.
    The large amphibians, then, would live in cycles that moved in and out of the river beds and bodies of water
    that would become so populated, it would push the waters above the shores for the land to use more accessibly. In return,
    the tree-dwelling species would ensure that the perfectly-ripened fruits were made available from the trees to those amphibians.
    This Grand Cycle, for many of our students, and including ourselves, was one of the most peaceful and restful Cycles we have ever experienced.
