Q: If all time is now and all the fragments exist at the same time learning all the lessons at the same time, how do ‘we’ know how many fragments to break into in the first place? Do we ‘generate’ fragments as we need to in order to experience the lessons we want to learn in a given timeline? What happens if we ‘blow’ a life, abdicate it or refuse to learn the lesson or die ‘before all lessons are complete, like I did in the architect’s life? Does another fragment just pick up the lessons and go from there? Also, how does this relate to something I read/heard/discussed with someone regarding phobias relating to a major trauma in another life? Funny thing is, I can accept that all life occurs now, it’s just the little details that throw me.
Michael: The fragments are not broken up at the start. Rather do you start as one essence with a “life plan”—one incarnation with selected milestones. But as choices are made, major choices such as determining to be male or female, essence splits into all the possibilities. Therefore, if the possibilities are male, female, neutered, then essence is now 3 fragments. Then as each fragment makes major decision—such as career choices, that fragment making the choices again splits to cover all the probabilities.
These probable yous may continue on with their own existences in their own timelines, or they may regroup back to you if their “path” merges back to the primary fragment’s path. Therefore, you are constantly fragmenting and re-integrating as choices are made. This is why you may suddenly “develop” a talent you always thought about, but did not realize you had. For the fragment that rejoined with you may have developed that talent, such as painting, or photography, or business astuteness, etc. So, there are as many of you as are needed to complete all the probabilities that you create for yourself. But each primary you is also a fragment. For as you go along you are constantly wanting to experience more and different things. So you may cast off fragments to start a life in Africa in the 1800’s, or in Indonesia in 10BC, or France in 1200AD, and each of these lives may create fragments for all of their probabilities.
If a life ends by accident, the fragment will either plan out a “new” life or will re-integrate with the primary fragment from which it came. Either way, the “lessons” will be done and balance found. For although you perceive time as something occurring, that leaves you with a past, present and future, we see time as an object that you visit over and over again. So, if one fragment ends an existence, there is no reason why that fragment or another portion of it cannot “pick up” where the first left off, or even visit the same timeline. What you call dopplegangers are in some cases simply alternate you’s occurring in the same timeline, but with different goals and different tasks. But because the human mind finds this so disconcerting, it is not a scenario that is selected very often. Rather do the fragments select similar timelines for their alternates.
Phobias occurring late in life are usually those incurred from that life. But those occurring from incarnation are usually carryovers from a “previous” existence, or previous visit by that fragment to one of the timelines. For rather than thinking of time as a line, think of it as a continuous spiral within a circle within a spiral within a circle within a spiral within a circle, ad infinitum, layered one upon another, ad infinitum. For each circle represents an alternate reality and each spiral the primary timeline within it. But as choices are made, the spiral grows branches, some reaching toward other parts of the same spiral, others reaching upward or downward to another timeline, and still others creating completely new timelines. Therefore, we say time is an object, an idea, a thought form, that you create. Once created, you then initiate the populating of that timeline with fragments of yourself so that you can experience all of the physical realm. So, as many primary timelines as you create, and as many alternate realities that you create, is how many fragments your essence will generate.
If one fragment dies in a fire, when it incarnates again that “memory” remains. Therefore, that fear is still there. You create your now and from that now do you create your futures and your pasts. Each now has different probabilities both “forward” and “backward”, and as you create these “memories” and possibilities, you also create the fragments to populate them.
You may break now.
Q: I’m still not sure we understand, M, about time and fragments. Does a fragment then inherit multiple overleaves (personalities) when one timeline merges with another?
Michael: If we follow essence through a cycle perhaps we can make things clearer. We will try. Essence decides to be a king with dominance, stubbornness, observation. It begins life at cycle 1. The choices are made to be in a timeline similar to yours but in the era of 1400AD in North America. Here we have the first branch, where the parents chosen have a son, and alternate life A they have a daughter.. Essence is now 2 fragments, both in *VERY* similar timelines due to a branching from the primary timeline to an alternate immediately “below” it. However, in their society, females are unwelcome, so the infant is left to die. The alternate timeline ends and fragment A merges back with the primary creating essence again.
“Time” in your sense elapses, and the king is a youth. He is invited as a part of a manhood initiation hunting party. He fragments again—fragment A goes on the hunt, Fragment B does not. Fragment A gets separated from the main party and encounters a bear, and creates several more fragments. Fragment A1 gets killed by the bear. Fragment A2 runs away and is branded a coward. Fragment A3 climbs a tree and must be “rescued” when the others come searching for him. Fragment A4 attacks and is wounded, but the others come and help. Fragment A5 attacks and is mortally wounded and dies back at camp a hero. Fragment A6 runs away and tells no one what happened. Fragment A7 avoids the bear and the bear never sees or knows that he is there. Fragment A8 calls out to the others causing the bear to notice and attack him. This causes several more fragmentations to occur.
A2 and A5 rejoin with the primary fragment, for they did not last long enough to create a major timeline of their own, nor did their separation change much. Therefore, primary fragment A who was lost and saw the bear is now also fragment A1 and A5 in experiences. A2, A3, A4, A6, A7, and A8 must continue on their own timelines now as their decisions have not brought them back in conjunction with the primary fragment from which they came.
Now primary Fragment B, who did not go on the hunt, has decided instead to be a shaman. So, he meets with the medicine man and is told that he must pass some tests. These begin and Fragment B finds that one is to climb a mountain while fasting. Fragment B starts to climb, but is weak from hunger and reaches a point where a choice to continue must be made. B1 continues, B2 quits and simply says he did it, B3 quits and admits it, B4 slips and falls, killing himself instantly, B5 slips but does not die immediately.
At the same moment as this life is occurring, the essence that is the king, also decides to complete some other experiences in a different timeline. So, as king but in submission with a goal of growth, in the passion mode with a chief feature of impatience, a fragment is placed in France in the 1750’s. This fragment will be doing 2nd cycle lessons and tasks by drawing on the experiences of Fragments A and B in North America. At this same moment, another fragment is created with another set of overleaves and it is chosen to place this fragment in America during the 1960’s to do 3rd cycle lessons. Again, this fragment will draw on the experiences of the other 3 primary fragments.
Does this then, make it clearer?
Q: Yes, M.
Michael: For although fragments break and re-merge and break again, they do not re-merge from the different timelines. That is, a primary fragment starting out in the 1500’s timeline will not re-merge with the primary fragment in the 1960’s timeline. This re-integration/re-merging takes place in the lower astral planes once all physical plane existences are complete and incarnation into a physical body is no longer desired by any of the fragments. It is then that the fragments again become essence, and the experiences of all fragments are then enjoyed and reviewed by essence. For this is the first step toward total re-unification.
