I was originally channeled as being in Cadre 1 Entity 3, but then in a session with different channel, Michael said that I was in Cadre 1, Entity 5. The information came spontaneously by way of another question. In other words, I wasn't asking for a re-channeling of that information, it just came.
Has anyone else had this experience? Troy, have you spontaneously channeled overleaves that were different from those the person got originally? I’ve heard that channels get nothing if the questioner keeps asking for the same information, but I’m curious about the issue of validation when these unsolicited changes come up.
Ann, brace yourself: the idea that you can't ask a same or similar question more than once because the connection to the answer gets degraded is just bullshit, for lack of a better word. I’ve heard at least one channel promote the idea that if you ask a question once then it automatically degrades the ability of any other channeling of that question again. In other words, if you ask for your Overleaves from more than one channel, then the second or third set of Overleaves channeled is automatically compromised. That theory (and variations of it) is just a “cover-my-ass” insurance that is liberally used to explain away bad channeling discrepancies or to help head off insecurities in a medium.
Here is some feedback from my experiences:
Even the BEST and most consistently valid of channels who have the highest of integrity can still get incorrect or conflicting information. It's just a fact that it happens and you either roll with it or you get stuck on the conflicts. When there is conflicting information between two or more channels you regard highly, or maybe one channel receives different information for you at different times, then you ultimately have to figure out what is correct by turning back to yourself. Sometimes questioning the channel can help clear things up. A good channel should have no problem admitting he or she may be wrong and work with you to figure out the validation.
Conflicting information can come to you synchronistically to help put you in a position to question something you had previously found unquestionable. Yes, I have received information for a student that is not the same as what was originally given by another channel. Like I said: it happens. In those cases we work together to figure out the valid information with a series of questions and the student's serious examination of the terminology's definitions.
Keep in mind that there are three facets to the Personality and depending on the channel and his or her methods of channeling (directly from Michael, or using intuition translated into Michael terminology); you can easily get one of the two “superficial” facets of information about yourself, instead of the records from the Akashic Plane. The two superficial aspects of your Personality are basically: 1. the “you” that YOU project out to the world vs. “who you really are”; 2. or the “you” that OTHERS project onto you through their expectations and interpretations of you vs. “who you really are”. “Who you really are” would be the Akashic Records’ version.
Sometimes these versions are very similar and sometimes the two superficial versions are very different from the “real you”. My point being that even the Cadre/Entity #’s can reflect one of those superficial facets. Maybe you have personality tendencies that “feel” to one of the channels like what he or she recognized as general feelings of an entity number.
In the end, entity numbers might not ever be truly capable of being validated while physical. The only thing I have ever found solid to go on are the energy themes that seem overwhelmingly consistent among the lifestyles or personalities of the members of any particular entity.
I hope this feedback helps!
