Mixed orientation and how it's counted


I’m becoming doubting if my understanding was correct. Thinking of orientation I was sure it was like part of 100%. For example, if it’s 40% negative so it’s 60% positive. Ra were using word “mixed” a number of times, but it looks it’s related to generalization of many entities, but not of one entity. I would like to ask you several questions:

  1. Do you think that polarizations are part of 100%, so it’s not like it can be 60% positive and 20% negative?
  2. What is this “100%”? Can it be increased? Is this somewhat important?
  3. Is it a correct way of thinking that instead of increasing positive polarization it can be interpreted as decreasing negative polarization?
  4. Can positive polarization be increased just by adding some positive value? I mean if current polarization is 50/50 and you add some more positive value to the whole so it will be lets say 53/47?
  5. If this somewhat is increasing, can it only be increased by positive value? Or only negative value can be added to this whole? Or both?

Thank you.

65.13 Questioner: How common in the universe is a mixed harvest for a planet of both positively and negatively oriented mind/body/spirit complexes?

Ra: I am Ra. Among planetary harvests which yield an harvest of mind/body/spirit complexes approximately 10% are negative; approximately 60% are positive; and approximately 30% are mixed with nearly all harvest being positive. In the event of mixed harvest it is almost unknown for the majority of the harvest to be negative. When a planet moves strongly towards the negative there is almost no opportunity for harvestable positive polarization.

11.23 Questioner: Is this how we learned of nuclear energy? Was it mixed, both positive and negative orientation?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. The entities responsible for the gathering of the scientists were of a mixed orientation. The scientists were overwhelmingly positive in their orientation. The scientists who followed their work were of mixed orientation including one extremely negative entity, as you would term it.

I think this is also important:

69.11 Questioner: Can you tell me of the situation that the Wanderer finds itself in and why the path back cannot be the simple moving back into the same value of positive time/space?

Ra: I am Ra. The path back revolves, firstly, about the higher self’s reluctance to enter negative space/time. This may be a significant part of the length of that path. Secondly, when a positively oriented entity incarnates in a thoroughly negative environment it must needs learn/teach the lessons of the love of self thus becoming one with its other-selves.

When this has been accomplished the entity may then choose to release the potential difference and change polarities.

However, the process of learning the accumulated lessons of love of self may be quite lengthy. Also the entity, in learning these lessons, may lose much positive orientation during the process and the choice of reversing polarities may be delayed until the mid-sixth density. All of this is, in your way of measurement, time-consuming although the end result is well.

If I remember correctly, Ra mentioned that even in 4D positive, entities are around 98% positive. Possibly that the only way to be 100% is to become all that there is once again.


Don’t forget that these percentages are not really defined in ways that could ever accurately be measured according to what we now know and reliably observe. 100% of what, exactly? With electrical polarity, we know that at the end of the day we’re measuring electrons. What are we measuring in spiritual polarity? Jim McCarty has often offered that its a count of thoughts, but I rather disagree as thoughts are not fungible units to be counted as apples to apples.

I think of these percentages more as metaphors for energetic states and dynamics that I cannot mentally model. In the same way that there are many laws of physics that condition my life but do not capture or define its totality, I tend to think of polarity as something at work in my experience but unfathomable directly. I must understand myself and my own energy better to work with it, and if I can attain that awareness, I have so much to work with that polarity itself becomes rather crude compared to the nuances of affect and sensation available to the adept.


One can observe two levels of polarization in the sense of the personal and the social balance. In the latter case, the entire planetary population may unite to work together in an either positive or negative format. If they cannot work together, where some members polarize and others do not, then you have a mixed harvest.

At the same time you have polarization on the personal level. So, what is this? The simplest terms Ra uses are the same as the classic definition of energy, “the ability to do work.” Past this it gets tricky. A “polarity meter” is not like an ammeter, giving a simple, objective and direct read out. Measurement is sensed by emotional means, but neither in the sense of someone being emotive, nor in the sense of shallowly flitting from emotion to emotion.

People will endlessly argue about these things–and good luck to them–but argument isn’t relevant here. Confederation informants speak about refining emotions and purity of emotion to describe this avenue of awareness. Love, that which they say is the axis of all existence, is an emotion. Generally, our thoughts and emotional apparatus are markedly impure and have little real connection with purified emotion, except on an accidental basis, say, during a birth or a death or a profoundly revelatory situation where there is uncommon honesty and sincerity and openness to infinity.

Most of us cannot go there at will, but this is the whole point of the tuning process and it is the point of so-called magical ritual. It is to bridge the gap between the simple personal self and what they call the universal self.

If you spend some time in this zone, you might begin to sense what polarity feels like. It’s a kind of profundity of sincere awareness of infinity-as-self. These words, however, mean nothing. They are not pathways into what I’m referring to. The pathways are all variations of self-awareness.

To sum it up, what is polarity? It is a profound self-awareness that bridges the gap between the personal and universal selves which allows one to direct energies of consciousness for specific purposes.

Just one caveat. Such self awareness is partially conscious and partially unconscious. That is, a person may have a stronger polarity than they realize, their purity may be quite high, yet they have no sense of how to summon it and use it for any specific purpose. In other words, one may have an ability to do work (polarity), but a very limited framework for activating it.


As I understand it, the issue of the level of polarity has to do with the choice between polarities, and our personal crystallization, where we always choose something that reflects one of the polarities, which works in a small and gradual way on our crystallization.

I would first like to write briefly about how I would label the relationships in polarity, in a way that can be visualized. Well, for me it’s like taking a slider that would have, let’s assume, a small ball in the middle that you could grab. If I moved the slider to the right I would discover a red line indicating negative polarity, if I moved the slider to the left I would discover a blue line indicating positive polarity. Therefore, each time I would cover and uncover one of the colors (polarities). A slider maximally moved to the left (revealing the blue line) would mean 100% positive polarity. A slider maximally moved to the right (revealing the red line would mean) 100% negative polarity. The slider in the middle would show a red and blue line half to half, this would mean 50% positive/50% negative polarity.

Wherever there is a choice, whether it is a thought or an action, we choose. The moment we choose and repeat that choose we create certain habits or friction within ourselves between the choice of polarities. Let’s focus on the positive polarity. Habitually returning to thinking of other people and us as One being, contemplating, creating visualizations about this eventually crystallize in us some level of mentality, and what is crystallized in us will influence directly our level of polarity, in this case raise our positive polarity.

Another situation is friction/internal struggle, if we are faced with choices, for example, the temptation to take everything for ourselves instead of sharing something with everyone, or we are faced with the temptation to yell or get angry at someone instead of acting on the basis of love, then there is an internal struggle/friction within us, that can turn into a choice of positive polarity over negative polarity, and I believe that here, in the case of friction between the choice between two polarities, the crystallization affecting the rising of positive polarity occurs immediately, provided, of course, that this friction actually took place.

I think, ultimately, the crystallization of different behaviors and ways of thinking within us gives us the overall result of our polarity. I think it could be measured/calculated on the basis of how much we have crystallized in all these patterns of thinking/behavior of positive polarisation in relation to these crystallized negative patterns, where the positive side works on its development with new positive crystallizations, thus shifting, that slider on the line mentioned at the very the beginning of this post, at the expense of the negative side.

No or a small amount of positively crystallized patterns is not neutral, it is something that works in favor of negative crystallization, at least in my understanding of it. Then to work in favor of positive polarity, continuous and consistent work is essential to work in favor of positive polarity, taking away the “space” of negative polarity.

What I might add at the end is I think that someone positively polarized would be called someone who has a ratio of 51%(+)/49%(-). Someone neutrally polarized would be 50%(+)/50%(-). Postively and neutraly polarized is able to be harvested to 4D STO. Someone negative would be 49%(+)/51%(-), but we have to remember that (in negative polarisation) it is need a ratio of at least 95%(-)/5%(+) to harvest to 4D STS.

It reminds me the following:

36.7 Questioner: In that case my higher self would, shall we say, have a very large advantage in knowing precisely what was needed since it would know what… as far as I am concerned, what was going to happen. Is this correct?

Ra: I am Ra. This is incorrect, in that this would be an abrogation of free will. The higher self aspect is aware of the lessons learned through the sixth density. The progress rate is fairly well understood. The choices which must be made to achieve the higher self as it is are in the provenance of the mind/body/spirit complex itself.

Thus the higher self is like the map in which the destination is known; the roads are very well known, these roads being designed by intelligent infinity working through intelligent energy. However, the higher self aspect can program only for the lessons and certain predisposing limitations if it wishes. The remainder is completely the free choice of each entity. There is the perfect balance between the known and the unknown.

Thank you very much for the answers. I find the 98% tricky to understand, but to my opinion it’s not the polarization.

I think the analogy with the “a small ball in the middle that you could grab” is correct. I mean that’s not two small balls.

Thank you for reminding about “the ability to do work”.

I agree that measuring polarization is not defined. For myself I determine polarization as distortion through which consciousness has to pass. It’s distortion because in this state it’s not possible to consider all as one (for positive polarization) and exclude negative polarization. Same is true for negative polarization because positive polarization prevents to unite all so it’s like positive polarity chooses separation. So it’s a work to be done for both polarities and of course both need to have ability to do it that’s why polarization is needed. It works in the same way as the yellow-ray. For those who are in the sinkhole of indifference the sinkhole looks like “all is one” but the Lucifer yanks them to choose the polarity and hence choose separation. So again it’s a work to be done. The most knotty part here is how how it’s united again; I think @Gabo asked Jim similar question but in a different manner.

But instead I find more interesting question about the object of polarization. It’s consciousness. Seems like Higher Selves try to increase something. I don’t understand why they want to do it and what exactly they do. Maybe the answers are in the quote I wrote above and the following quote:

94.11 Questioner: I have drawn a small diagram in which I simply show an arrow which represents catalyst penetrating a line at right angles to the arrow, which is the veil, and then depositing in one of two repositories, one which I would call on the right-hand path, one on the left-hand path; and I have labeled these two repositories for the catalytic action as it’s filtered through the veil “the Experience.” Would this be a very rough analogy of the way the catalyst is filtered through the veil to become experience?

Ra: I am Ra. Again, you are partially correct. The deeper biases of a mind/body/spirit complex pilot the catalyst around the many isles of positivity and negativity as expressed in the archipelago of the deeper mind. However, the analogy is incorrect in that it does not take into account the further polarization which most certainly is available to the conscious mind after it has perceived the partially polarized catalyst from the deeper mind.
