Positive Monadal Transitions

QUESTION: Please describe an actual person's journey through a lifetime who was able to gain access to the positive poles of his/her 7 internal monads... What were these transitional experiences like?

Michael: We will reference a midcycle mature slave in order to illustrate the process through which a fragment can traverse through the particular incarnation with resulting positive poles of each internal monad. This particular fragment was born in the year 1921 and died in the year 1998 of what would be considered failure of the circulatory system due to an inherited predisposition for such. This fragment was born in an area of Cincinnati, Ohio and was the eldest child of the local merchant and his wife, both scholars. All together this family totaled 12 with the slave, a female, in the primary position for care as well as the repayment of two karmic debts which were incidentally paid in full in this incarnation.

It is not necessary for an incarnation to be "dull" or without external demands in order for the fragment to succeed in terms of monadal progress. It is more a matter of how the fragments chooses to respond to the influences and this is related to the chosen overleaves and specifically chief features which are chosen as a result of early imprinting and familial dynamics. This fragment chose a goal of acceptance, perseveration mode, pragmatist, intellectual part of moving center and a primary chief feature of mild impatience due to the needs of the family which prevented her active participation in social events and a secondary of stubbornness. Casting for this fragment was 3-1-2. The body type was Mars Mercury which provided some strength which was necessary in terms of physical labor. The life task for this fragment had to do with the issue of "cooperation in order to meet common goals" and this life task focus coupled with her inherent need to serve allowed her to be cooperative rather than individually oriented. The chosen goal of acceptance also facilitated this life task and provided an openness and flexibility which was by nature positive. We have said before that the slave role in essence does not require special circumstances through which to complete the life task and such was the case here.

The first monad was completed in the positive pole with a relatively easy birth process. The body type of the mother fragment facilitated the birth itself with some efforts by the neighboring physician who provided some support in terms of physical necessities. The slave fragment was not resistant to the birth and ensoulment process for the previous incarnation had been one of positive reconciliation with several family members including the task companion and was on an essence level "ready" to proceed with the life plans set prior to the birth during the astral plane interval. The environment for the actual birth itself was somewhat austere due to lack of monetary means, but the parental fragments were positive and welcoming to the infant who thereby was able to bond effectively. We will emphasize that this mammalian instinctual process is highly important in terms of human psychological development which of course affects later monadal process and life interactions.

At the age of some 18 months the then little slave chose to engage the second monad when the birth of the second child occurred. Incidentally it is not unusual for fragments to engage monads as a response to external changes in the environment and this occurred for the slave when the new infant arrived and required increased attention from the mother which then shifted the focus away from the slave and to the artisan female. In this case and due primarily to the natural response by the slave to step aside in terms of personal needs in order for the needs of others to be fulfilled, the slave began to create distance from the mother specifically both physically and emotionally. Time was spent in play with small wooden objects which had been previously provided by the parents and such play was encouraged by the parents who then would turn their attention toward the infant. The father was not present a majority of the time, and when he did return after work hours he did make efforts to spend focused time with the slave which did allow for the more positive second monad to occur. Over the course of some 18 months, the slave did establish autonomy in terms of motor coordination and verbal skills and at the age of 3 years plus some months completed the 2nd monad in the positive pole and also greeted another sibling.

The third monad began at the age of 14 when this fragment began to resent the demands that were required of her due to familial size and this included the care of her younger siblings. The mother worked part time at a local grocery which necessitated that the slave remain at home when illnesses intruded, thereby missing school and other social events which she would have preferred to attend. The primary chief feature fixated when the slave was not allowed to attend a local dance, instead staying home with her ailing younger brothers while the parents worked. The slave then began to feign her own illnesses in order to avoid work and at times would sneak away with several female friends to attend the movie instead of attending school. The parents did discover this but chose to punish her mildly due to the fact that she was in general an attentive and cooperative fragment (goal of acceptance). The secondary chief feature of stubbornness fixated when a younger sibling died of influenza and the slave did experience a period of depression and non-mobility. At the age of 21 she married and moved approximately 15 miles away from the family, establishing her own roots and within a year completing the third monad in the positive pole. This fragment had experienced a relatively positive childhood and it was therefore possible for her to separate from the family by passing the baton to the artisan sister who took over the duties of care for the younger siblings who by this time were spanning nearly 2 decades in age. The first karmic debt was repaid to the 5th sibling who was mildly retarded mentally and required special care which the slave provided. The second debt was not repaid until a later date. (care of a sister as an adult).

The preparation for the 4th internal monad spanned approximately 3 years as the slave fragment, who had married and was now with a husband fragment and two offspring, began to evaluating the effect of education or lack thereof on her life to date. While she had graduated from high school she was not afforded the luxury of higher education and she, at this juncture in life which began at the age of 34 years, was gearing up for a life change which included teaching at the secondary level specifically in the area of history which was in fact true study for her. There were negative reactions from others concerning this decision on her part, for such actions would of course detour her from total focus on the family and on the husband fragment in particular.The dynamics which redirected her previously intact and relatively peaceful life toward more internal conflict and "debate" were marital of course, but not limited to, for the reactions that this slave fragment received from her family of origins included surprise, indignation, anger, emotionality, and distancing in physical terms. The perseveration mode assisted this fragment in enrolling in a part-time college level course which eventually resulted in a higher degree which did allow her to teach at the high school level, her "dreams" becoming manifest. Although there were times when this fragment did succumb to the negative pole of acceptance goal, ingratiation, she did not linger there for long periods of time and was able to extricate herself from fear through engaging true rest which included knitting and weaving.

The period of years which ensued included the life task focus which did center on cooperative ventures both in and out of the classroom. At the age of 66, this fragment's health was "variable" and she chose to retire from her professional work to which she had become highly devoted and began working with local children in a day care environment as well as caring for young children in her own home when she had the time. 5th monadal review included the creation of a small sketchbook which she illustrated with her own stories and captions, and it was through this work that she was able to focus her life in such as way as to fully glean its scope and this included all aspects to the best of her abilities. It was during this time period that she also had the opportunity to travel to England which incidentally was the location of her most recent past incarnation and there spent a summer which was much to her liking and would have been included in the top list of her lifetime enjoyable experiences. Her children were by this time grown, but there were grandchildren and she enjoyed spending time with them when possible. It was also during this period that her husband became ill and died after a bout of colitis and she of course devoted her attention to him during the course of his 6th and 7th monad and was considered by others to be "a saint".

Shortly thereafter the death of the husband this slave fragment's own health began to fail as hereditary influences took precedence including fatigue and secondary diabetes. The life itself has been primarily positive and approaching the 7th monad in the positive pole allowed her to relinquish her stronghold on physical life and after a period of some 19 months she finally succumbed to kidney failure at approximately 2:30 am in the presence of her youngest daughter. There was little struggle here and she was essentially at peace with her life, choices, and results and the little pain that she experienced at the time of her death made it all the more possible for her to begin the 7th monad with relative ease. At the time of her death she experienced what she would call "the land" which was both grounding and prophetic for in her next incarnation she was born the son of a sheepherder in an area of Australia, which was much to her liking.
