[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: February 2000]
[Note: Otterly is Troy Tolley]
[mamajo] A while back in public chat, you said that to connect with the energy of our entity, we should try to visualize a “Michael central” in a type of meeting house. When I did this, I connected directly with your channel Otterly (who is an entity mate of mine), could you re-define the process for me, perhaps I was doing it wrong.
[Michael_Entity] Are you speaking of connecting with your own entity, or us?
[mamajo] Well, the context I understood it to be was my own entity, which would allow sharing and learning to take place. I'm not referring to channeling per-se, just connecting to the energy stream to aid in learning. I think I understood it to be analogous to astral school to be.
[Michael_Entity] In either case, you were not “doing it wrong”. In fact, what you have energetically and symbolically deemed Otterly IS a “type of meeting house”. You can be more specific in your design, changing this to a literal visual house, or allow your inner picture to be what is more easily recognizable as a resource. By connecting to “Otterly”, this symbol can act as a very meaningful conduit, in this case for your own Entity OR in connection with us (since Otterly is connected to both). If you are distracted by your symbol of the “meeting house”, it is up to you to simply change that symbol. Otherwise, it is valid.
[mamajo] Ok, so I didn't do it wrong then, I thought I had done a “bad thing” there impinging on a “person's energy place”.
That is not a possibility. When you “call” on someone, even if specifically, the aspect you call to you, the energy that makes that up is but an extension of the energy, specifically for you. It has no bearing on the core source and its experience of itself.
This is why it is possible to dream of someone intimately without that dream being “shared” or remembered together and how you can “meet” Astrally without both having to be asleep.
