General Discussion / Dreams
« on: April 21, 2011, 06:47:23 AM »
I had a dream last night and will say that I am a big dreamer.  Sometimes I will wake up knowing what the dream means for me.  So, the question is, does Michael talk about dreaming at all?

Okay, for anyone interested, here is the dream.  I was in a room that was jam-packed full of people.  The people in this room were the people in this forum.  There was only one seat left and I was the newbie and I had to share it with someone else.  Someone behind me was reading something they had written.  I understand it to be Dave Gregg.  It was beautifully stated and everyone in the room was moved by what he had said.  Then, I believe it was John Roth, asked if anyone had anything to add.  I raised my hand and he told me that I couldn't talk b/c my computer system hadn't been set up yet.  I was confused as to his meaning.  Then Dave told him I was on the forum and so everything was set up.  I was allowed to talk. 

John, I hope you don't take offense to this.  I think it is because you are considered, at least by me, the "Keeper of Topics".  And in my dream, you wanted to make sure I was on topic.

Soul Age / Re: POLL: What is Your Soul Age?

About 2 years ago, before my great aunt Christine passed away, I called her to find out if she had any stories.  Aunt Christine was an opera singer (Chiara, thinking of you!), performed in the original Carousel opera and gave Florence Henderson her first voice lessons (this and Edgar is my family's only claim to fame).  So aunt Christine was somewhat refined and brought up refined.  She said that when she was a young girl, she and her mom went to Hopkinsville (not far from where we were all raised) and went to a drugstore.  She said that she had always heard of him and he was considered an "odd-bird" of the family.  She met him at, I believe, a drugstore and she said that he had on tattered jeans and shoes that were coming apart.  She said there was nothing that stood out other than how "unkept" he was.

I found out we were related about 23 years ago and due to raising kids and moving around so much, I never took the time to ask those questions.  Wish I had now.  But that was what started me in all of this and I have been the only one in my immediate family, extended family, etc. to pursue all of this.  Still don't know why I'm the only one but it is what it is.

I also wanted to add to your posting earlier about soul ages.  I agree with what you and John said about it clarifying things.  The thing with me is that right now, I just don't care.  I'm pretty sure I know my Life Task and it is well on its way.  I've known for quite some time.  I could probably place myself in a Role, Goal, etc. but there are a few where it might go either way.  But in the end, for me, I am where I am and I enjoy being able to jump in and relate to most everyone wherever they are.  So I don't know how important it is to me to know.  But I am really enjoying this forum!  Getting ready to start a new topic b/c of a dream I had.  Would love to know what Michael says about dreams...

My great-grandmother.  Should have re-read my post!

Edgar Cayce is a direct descendant of mine.  My grandmother and him were cousins.  So maybe I'm a baby soul!  Ha!  Although I doubt it.  But that is quite amusing to me!

I haven't filled out this poll yet b/c I am new to the Michael Teachings and I haven't gotten around to doing this.  I figure at some point I will but I am in no hurry.

I would have to pose the question, would Infant and Baby Souls even be attracted to this forum?  I can't imagine them being at the stage that they would be looking for something like this. 

Just my thoughts and I am curious to see what others think about this.

In reading Messages From Michael, beginning at the bottom of page 75, it addresses this question.  Emily asked how to identify soul levels.  Michael said, "Watch for the perceptions of others.  If they differ greatly from those involved, you are probably dealing with a Mature Soul.  You must discriminate between fear, unrest, and craziness."  She then asked if there was an easy way to see this. 

He went on to say, "...Infant souls manifest fear.  This can be seen in their eyes.  This fear is out of proportion to the situation.  The whole business of living is fearful to them.  Baby Souls are guileless and this shows in their eyes.  Young Souls are in a state of unrest.  This often shows in erratic eye movements, the inability to hold eye contact for long.  But then, the Mature Soul finds it difficult to maintain eye contact because of discomfort.  Old Souls have a direct, penetrating stare absent in earlier Cycles.  Wisdom is reflected there."

He went on to say, "...The social behavior of Baby Souls is normally a dead giveaway.  They have none of the smoothness of the older Cycles.  New situations frighten them.  Change of any type is threatening.  The Young Soul is usually polished and poised socially.  The Mature Soul is sometimes nervous in crowds  if the vibrations are bad, but they are exacting in their social relationships.  The Old Soul is casual about everything.  Baby Souls tend to be immaculate about person and home, have strong feelings about hygiene.  They live by standard cliches, and after all, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness."  The Young Soul often deeps external appearances:  shove everything into the closet before the company comes.  The Mature Soul goes in spurts:  one day clean, the next day, not too clean.  The Old Soul usually does not bother to shove anything into the closet.  Who cares?  The Baby Soul regularly cleans drawers, cupboards, and the tops of refrigerators."

"Let it be known that intellect is not a factor in any of these Cycles."

Hope this helps.  Glad I type fast!

Karen and Chiara, great posts!  That's a great way of looking at it.  I'd like to throw my two cents in.  When I get frustrated with people, I try to remember that I was once there too and just as I had to go through things in order to grow, so do they.  One of the things I have had to work through is allowing others to have their experiences and respecting where they are, which teaches me patience.  I think that has been a big one for me.  When I see the growth that others go through, afterwards, it is worth it.  It's like a weight being lifted off my shoulder, knowing that I helped them work through it.

Soul Age / Country Soul Age

I am interested to know if Michael explains how a country obtains its soul age.  Is it due to older souls primarily incarnating in a particular country?  Also, has Michael said if newer/younger souls are attracted to older country souls.  Thanks.

Thanks Dave.  I've been an avid Seth reader for several years, which is where I found out about this.  I noticed you wrote "potential" future self, which would make sense from probable selves.  Not sure if Michael has talked about this.  I have a lot to read on the Michael material.

Hi Dave,

That was highly interesting.  I have done much reading on these and always love to read more of them.  Yours sounded like you gained a lot of insight from it.  So what are your thoughts on it after having this done?  Just curious.

I am new to the Michael Teachings but not new to this type of material.  I am curious as to what Michael says (if anything) about all reincarnational selves going on at once/simultaneous time.  So much to learn...
