DESCRIBE HOW YOU EXPERIENCE THE PRESENCE OF MICHAEL. Colors? Sensations? Emotions? Do you feel this is your imagination, an intentional form from Michael? If you do not feel any sense of presence, do you feel an impact from the information on your life?

No color, emotion, sensation, feelings, presence. Sometimes I wonder how much real is the MT. But at the same time, I feel a transforming impact from the MT information on my life. Amazing. I used to have big relationship problems with a few people: now I look to them using the MT and everything becomes clear. I can see where that person comes from and why the behavior, and, may be the most important : why that behavior is bothering me and what I can do about it. I used to wonder all the time about my past and future: never anymore. That overall teaching of going from the "negative pool to the positive one" in order to progress in this life is just enlightning and so helpful. It gives me a better sense of the purpose of what I perceive as hardship. Real or not, imagination or not, thank you so much Troy for giving us the access to a so useful teaching.

Do you feel an impact from these teachings: These teachings have changed the way I look at life completely. I look at life so differently now. I used to look at life mainly as a type of punishment that your just meant to endure. My favorite old saying is life sucks then you die. Now, even during hard times, i feel better knowing that were all safe and were never going to lose eachother. My whole life i tend to hold people to high standards and am quick to dismiss them if they dont meet them, but i feel like these teachings have made me lighten up on other people knowing everyone has different overleaves and isnt wired the same as me. These teachings have also made me realize how asleep most of the world is, and it makes me sad. I am sad i cant share these teachings with anyone in my life other than my wife. These teachings have given me the vision on life that i was searching for my whole life, and i am glad i found them at a reasonably young age. Its like i was looking at the stars at night, but clouds were in the way and when i found these teachings the clouds disappeared and i could finally see the sky lit up with stars and see how awesone life really is.

I don't feel any type Michael presence, colors, emotions, etc. of any kind. But MT has opened me up to a completely new way of thinking. It has helped me understand myself SO much better and answer the questions of why I am the way I am and what are some of the things I really need to work on in lifetime. It has helped me make a lot of sense out of things. There's still SO much more to learn but it's a process. With learning all about the different roles, over leaves, etc. I often find myself guessing what people are just based off of the things I've read about on MT. I know that Michael really can only tell you that but it's fun trying. We've had some profiles done on family members and some of our guesses on what their roles would be were right on and some not. Overall I think MT has added a lot of value to my life and I'm glad that my husband stumbled upon it and shared it with me. Also, I've really enjoy having my past lives channeled.

I experience the presence of the Michael's as very real, very solid, and that is incredibly comforting for me, a fellow solid no nonsense functional utilitarian kind of role. 

When I have had channellings and they start to communicate and share their wisdom with me through Troy, they feel loving, gentle, and it is obvious that nothing I share that has killed my dreams and sold my soul for years internally, will make them judge me or turn them into Concerned Phobic Citizens. I love it that whatever I have shared with them, and have allowed out of myself, if I have not shared it with anyone else because I am too afraid of being incarcerated and vilified, is deemed beyond the pale, or immediately incarceratable. They feel like friends with whom I can bat and volley ideas, experiences, and favourite stories around, and that they want to hear me. I feel heard when I am engaged with them. No phenomena except a solid loving gently absurd but grounded presence, in the best way I can imagine.

I experience Michael as a solid presence, like a trusty old friend and a mentor, a professor of sorts, sitting in the room, never flailing, never judging, sort of smiling slightly with understanding acceptance (and often a bit of mirth, too). If one word had to be chosen, it would be "solid". That solidity is incredibly reassuring, and i can also feel it physically (i think, if i can differentiate) as a type of calm weight that has no direction, it's almost like the point of gravity is everywhere. 

The number one emotion i always feel for and about Michael is gratitude, and this gratitude is so grand that just being able to experience such gratitude makes me also really grateful... The words that have often popped into my mind in the past years in relation to them is "You Have Saved My Life". I don't know where they come from, if there is perhaps a literal event somewhere in my history with them, or if it's just symbolically about the grandness of the influence of their teaching for me. It's like a road map in the journey through the universe, that also comes with awesomely narrated, although sometimes a bit cryptic, a GPS :).

I actually do feel something when Michael is being channeled, even over the internet. Most of the time I've chalked it up to my imagination, but over the past 16 years it's been pretty consistent. It's a subtle boost of energy. My last session with Troy just this week, I was spacing out during the lag time while Troy was accessing Michael (or vice versa). I was doing other stuff and kind of deliberately not paying attention. Then damn if it didn't happen again. I have an intake of breath and an awareness of something. It's very quick and, true to my Sagey self, makes me want to laugh a little. The energy has been consistent, even via different channels.

 

How do I perceive Michael? Stern compassion. Always compassion.

 

Truthful, nonjudgmental, and loving. And no "dear one" bs. ETA: They will kick my ass and tell me truths that make me weep.

I would describe Michael's presence as a warm, familiar feeling. Similar to visiting an old friend that wasn't seen in a very long time. Even after all these eons has passed, the friend is still recognizable. Although, they may look different or even smell different (yar harz). Underneath it all, still basically the same old friend with quirks and all :).

 

I think or feel...

One time I was drifting off to sleep and asked Michael to "show" themselves to me. I wasn't expecting anything to happen, but suddenly it felt like I was free-falling (similar to an OOBE) and up against this immense, pearly-orange honeycomb structure. I was really caught off guard and it actually terrified me into waking up.

 

Other than that, I've always felt Michael to be a sort of masculine, solid presence. Maybe it's because their Entity is comprised mostly of Warriors and Kings, or that the name "Michael" is used. When I was younger, I thought of them more as an intimidating, authoritarian figure. However, that could be due to their somewhat distorted portrayal in the CQY books. I think of them now as more of a friendly, old college professor with ultimate patience. :)

Great responses.  When I first read the challenge I thought, shucks Troy, it is all the same to me: essence, guides. Michael... how am I to tell the difference and who cares.  Then I got this image of these beings stationed above me on the left side hanging out like an interested, caring bunch keeping an eye on me.  It was kind of like a choir.  Neutral but caring.   Since then I keep getting this image and the same feeling sense.  I think the image came from Michael as something they knew I would respond to and morph as my own.

 

The main thing is the teaching has revolutionized my life slowly and "insidiously".  I had experienced other teachers and teachings along the path.  I can laugh now but when I left scientology 19 years ago I would think of my experience as a former scientologist on higher  more meaningful level than all the various other practices I was encountering.  I had been wandering about with incomplete 3rd IM and 4thIM for years... not that that's a crime.  Then when I first encountered the idea of Internal Monads I dismissed it as unimportant.  Now lately as I look around I see lots and lots of people acting out their incomplete IMs not to mention CFs and self karma and wonder how in the world this planet functions at all.

 

I've really appreciated other teachers such as Bashar, Byron Katie, Lyssa Royal and others.  They all have good things to offer.  What Michael has is the a map of reality with ever expanding nuances and pieces that give both context and practical info.  Let me give a big thanks to Troy for offering such an open source web community which in itself has allowed me to grow leaps and bounds.

 

@Anna, you have such great phrasing!

I would like to add, that in that solidity I experience from them, one major thing is the absolute truthfulness and thus clarity, and part of this clarity is also that there is no burden of ego. No matter if i understand them or if there is a good connection between me and them (whether it would be through a channel or just myself), i still always sense this crystal clear clarity of their being. Frankness, honesty, matter-of-fact, objectivity, and yes, this is one reason why i love Michael so much. I ain't got time for complicated gibberish or butthurt from anyone's side =P

I get a lot of messages from "spirit" these days; I wish I knew if Michael does communicate some of them. Occasionally I will get a "message" that seems to be something that the ME would say, in the distinctive way they would say it. But I'm not sure. The teachings have profoundly affected the way I regard my life and experiences. My life crashed violently ten years ago & I've been trying to build a new one ever since. Returning to the MT after a long hiatus has literally been a lifesaver for me. I love the way they don't coddle us or sugar coat the information. That's always been a big attraction for me. Also everything they say makes sense, whether I like it or not :-)

This, exactly, when I'm reading something that has been channelled over the internet. The very few times I've tried to channel them myself, I "see" them as a dark storm cloud and "hear" what I can only describe as roaring wind. These are pleasant associations because where I live, dark clouds and roaring winds mean the much-awaited monsoon is coming :)

 

As for having an impact, "everything is valid" changed my life and my outlook on it forever. A huge thank-you to Troy for making this information available to so many people.

Whenever I have a session with the Michaels, I automatically imagine meeting a crowd of individuals-- some solemn, some with a knowing smirk, some with a soft yet confident, grounded smile. I agree with most people that they "feel" very solid. A couple of the individuals really stand out: one is a sisterly woman with shoulder-length hair in a toga-like outfit who is rather sarcastic, and another is a man with bullshit-penetrating eyes yet having such a kind expression. Maybe just my attempts to interpret them, or maybe actual fragments of memories of them when they were incarnated... who knows.

That's funny @Maxim, because I tend to drift to the 'left of my consciousness', in my mind, when I'm moving into a Beta state. Then I go 'up'. Always 'left', then 'up' into a matrix-like circuit board? It's always been there but I only recently 'remembered it'. Like others, I'm drawn to Michael's no bullshit, scholarly approach. They remind me of my history professor, from my University days. He'd offer a calming, authoritative approach to my scattergun and I'd leave his seminars feeling focussed and I don't know...happy? Contented. He would somehow organise and order my intuition and creativity. I'd hit the Library with purpose after those sessions and my work always hit a different level. To gain a First Class Honours degree or, to be achieving at the level of an Upper Second back in the 70's, you had to be scoring 70%+ in your essays and those 'one to ones' with my professor, opened the door for me. Looking back, those were great times. Life was just so fucking simple. 😊  

 

Theres more: I couldn't figure out the point. Like Matt it seemed to me 'life is shit, then you die'. I searched everywhere for meaning. For many years, I found meaning in social theory. As a young man I was obsessed with neo-Marxist theory. It seemed to offer meaning where there was none. In my university days, I analysed everything from a neo-Marxist paradigm and I had a ball. The Cold War, the collapse of Empire, Vietnam, the Great Dictators; I gave everything the revisionist treatment but it was never enough. By the time I hit my 50's I'd pretty much given up on the world and long since given up on myself. Then one day I found the Michaels. Bingo! It all fell into place. I now had a framework with which, to understand Creation. How my heart sang. 🎶 🎸 M calms my scattergun, just like my history professor and M orders my intuition and they prime my creativity in the same way, too. M doesn't so much charge my batteries as gently re-wire the whole electrical loom. Pulling out the shorts and freeing the overloaded resistors. M makes my brain work again. 

 

If I have a regret, it's that I didn't find M earlier. There were many years when I could have used it.

 (I have synaesthesia, so I kind of "taste pictures" and "hear feelings" etc. in case my descriptions are confusing.)

 

I "unpack" everybody in visions/pictures. And @Maxim and @MikeS to the left and up is the place for my visions/pictures too! Only Essence has a unique placement -  everybody else is always placed in the upper left corner of my field of view (Michael, Guides etc.).

 

SENSATIONS: The vision comes with a tingling sensation in my scull. You know this asperity in dry, tannic wines? I get a similar sensation around my left eye and in my left ear. That is however not unique for Michael. This sensation comes with visions from everyone except Essence. But I also get a little dry in my mouth and I think that this dryness is specific for Michael.

 

VISUALLY: I relate strongly with your description @Maxim: “Hanging out like an interested, caring bunch keeping an eye on me.  It was kind of like a choir.”  Among the first times I saw Michael, I actually was thinking “choir”! I was just never sure if it was the singing one or the one in architecture :happy:

For some reason my chosen symbolism for Michael is Medieval (an era I correspond with strongly). There is a taste of steel, of weaponry, of long mantles, as well as the feel of grey stone blocks and the cool tranquillity of great cathedrals. Michael are men with pointy faces. Some with beards, some with longer hair and all – just as Maxim describes it: “Hanging out like an interested, caring bunch keeping an eye on me”.

That is, if we are interacting (during a channelling or thinking about them). Because in this moment when I am writing, I can see Michael too, but they are going about their own business and are totally ignoring me. I see the back of their mantles there they move around. I know that they know that I am peeking, but they also know that it is not for interaction.

 

EMOTIONS: When I sit on my side of the keyboard and wait for Troy to bring in Michael, I know they are approaching, when I get a feeling of overwhelming joy. First comes a smile that I simply cannot control and then I start laughing! Every time! This joy has a smell of spring and moves like a bouncing puppy or kitten or kid (the goat kid, not the human). It has a quality of innocence, curiosity, anticipation and mischief. It sounds/tastes like a crystal clear mountain brook and is equally light-hearted, carefree and cheerful. Unspoiled joy and delight.

And then Michael greet me.

The emotion changes into something calmer. Love, concentration, patience, peacefulness? There is a scent of pipe tobacco and roses, and a taste of something sweet. It is a “grown-up” notion. Not necessarily me, Pat being grown-up. Just the adulthood of the Student that Michael today refer to as Pat. I don’t know if anyone else has it, but I sometimes prefer to post questions in third person, because suddenly I am not only Pat. There’s more to it somehow.

The above is consistent in on-line channeling, when I'm thinking about Michael, sometimes when I am reading MT materials.

I have only experienced life-channelling at last year’s TLEGG. I was very nervous, but what I recall was warmth and tingling in whole my body (fingers very much) and an overpowering feeling of gentleness, care and affection.

 

IMPACT ON LIFE: Michael Teachings brought a “new chronology” to my life. If there were a timetable, a schedule for processing this lifetime with focus and purposefulness, it would have come into effect around 2010 when I read about MT the first time.

I see MT as a tool. Sometimes it is a hammer or an axe, sometimes a legend to my map, another time a watering can. It is always a multidimensional experience of insights.

A new chronology, because from the perspective that MT give me, my Pre-Michael life becomes a whole. Like when you start to see a beautiful picture in the puzzle you are laying. If I so wish, I can apply MT freely over time to review the Past, to lay-out a plan for the Future as well as to steer the Now.

I cannot see an area of life where MT wouldn’t be applicable; there is no part of me, where a choice for these Teachings would compromise my integrity or the integrity of my Fellow Beings. There is nothing, in terms of inherent ability or inherited commodity, that is required of me to be able to use them. All I need, is to choose.

The choice will always be mine and mine only. Michael are a non-intrusive teacher. Objective and equitable in their approach. Understanding of the fine balance between my limitations and my potentials. Clear and open about their own. When I say non-intrusive, to me it also means that I am given the freedom to create my own teaching of what i have learned. And in that I am becoming both my own student and my own teacher.

To me the latter is a reflexion of the the awesome order of the Universe, where every part is Macro as well as Micro Cosmos.

Both the Teaching and the Teacher provide for me a language that unites the seemingly contradictory aspects of Separation and Oneness. This language serves as an enhancement to my senses, refinement of my capacities. It gives me the exactness and precision needed to cut through the dulled and dense definitions of this Realm. I can accommodate both the finite and infinite, both the metaphysical and physical without contradiction. As I evolve Spiritually I too grow Practically.

 

All the above is of great importance to me, and with Michael and their Teachings I can work on all these levels.

I have been a Michael student since the 1980s. I tend to live my life being present in the moment. When I become anxious or concerned I read and study and get into the present moment again. All I can say is that the Michaels have always resonated as truth to me. It has helped me to let go of scripting...a tendency I lean towards as a Priest. I have the confidence to live this life as it comes. And helps me accept people I meet in this big classroom we call life. When I consciously choose love, I feel the Michaels presence.

I've been exposed to the teachings since I was an infant. My mom used to spout quotes from the books. When I was 19 years old, I started reading them myself. I didn't get serious about them yet, I took what I'd read into a daily thought life for the next decade. At about 28 or so I got serious. I experienced them as a child in a similar way as I do now. As a body of energy, with many individual pieces all communicating together- sometimes laughing, sometimes disagreeing on particulars. It's intense energy. But intense in a way that it is truth and love without blinders or shields. There's no hiding the truth, nor do you have to. They are the evolution of us, so to speak. They are Something we will one day be, as they were once us. They are only a small part of something so big we can't even fathom it. They can see a bigger picture but even they can't fathom it in its entirety. I see them as a conglomeration of their own experiences here and where they are. And I see them as a mirror for us. It's a deal, a pact, an agreement. Not a fixed one but one made readily when needed and when allowed. They are fatherly energy to me. But without gender.

Being a fan of comedy, I generally tap into the sarcastic/dry/deadpan aspect of the Entity.  I believe it's because this is the best way to get through to me.  

 

I'm a very visual person, and I've always envisioned Michael as a warmly glowing, vast collection of light with very faint human outlines that sort of blend in which each other.  The human outlines are only projections but help my brain comprehend it.   Strange I never see any color to the light...it's just a warm off-white color. Perhaps that's the simplest way for my brain to process the MEntity.  Around them I see nothing else but space without stars.   To make it clear, this is how I personally experience them visually.  I'm not suggesting this is their "official" appearance by any means.  

 

 

The impact on my life is mostly regarding the teacher-student connection.   I now see everyone as both a teacher and a student instead of one or the other.  I am also more compassionate toward the younger ones.  We've all been there, and Mature/Old souls are "young" to those who have cycled off.  This is a rough planet.  Everyone  need support - plus we can learn a lot from each other.   I view animals as teachers and vice versa.

Great question, Troy.

Oh, do I agree with these words: Solid. Compassion. Gently absurd (I love that expression, Anna!)
Lately the Michaels feel like spiritual parents to me. Only they have nearly unlimited resources and understanding, and will never tell me "Not now, I'm busy" because time works differently in their reality! And I'm grateful for that (lovely description, Miizle!).
 

I've always had a similar and clear sensation when attending a channelling session, and I've only attended them online, never in person. (Geography.)
I find it difficult to really focus on anything else when I'm in a private session, as I'm on a sort of high. I can't even knit. I feel I need to just be quiet and listen. I even find it difficult to focus on chatting with other students while waiting for Michael's response. Also, it's like my personal space or energy body above my head is several times larger than usual. It's as if I can almost hear the whisper of a distant radio station, but I can't make out if it's static or words or music. Yet I can sense when Troy is receiving them loud and clear. I haven't asked Michael about my agreements with them, but by now I'm interested why I sense them this way as I understand not all students do.


I once had a dream where it was clearly Michael who directly said Hello to me, and in that dream they were represented by the color blue, but I forget the details, anyway that dream woke me up in a jolt, it was so intense and clear, I wasn't ready.


Like Heidi, I've also seen them represented in a dream, except I don't recall asking for this dream, not consciously anyway. They were men in antique warrior gear, standing close behind each other in a tight circle, in several rows, but the rows were not parallel, more of a honeycomb kind of structure indeed, and this huge circle was surrounded by mustard yellow wall of foamed plastic from both inside and outside. For some reason I had to fly on a very high swing and complete two circles around or above them. Need to ask them what those two circles were supposed to mean, I get the rest of it :)
