[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: March 2004]
[kittlekats41] I was hoping you might be able to give those of us who are fine-tuning our own channeling abilities some useful advice about perfecting our ‘focus’, or at least improving . . .:-)
Each of you has Overleaves that are more conducive to one of the three stages of channeling: Reception, Interpretation, and Transmission. Depending on the design of your Personality, you may be more inclined in strength in one of these areas.
“Reception” is the actual ability to connect with, or sense, the energy in which you wish to experience.
“Interpretation” is the actual ability to take patterns of Reception and make sense of those patterns within a language you understand, whether emotional, intellectual, or bodily.
“Transmission” is the actual ability to convey patterns through you to another individual or group in meaningful ways.
To excel in just one of these areas is not a limitation. For instance, Transmission might seem useless if you do not “know how” to Receive or Interpret, but this is not necessarily the case as many Healers, particularly in the context of Reiki, can attest. Their intent is to Transmit, not necessarily understand or “get” what is happening. Without an in-depth class to explain the dynamics of our comments, we can suggest that you sense the area in which you feel you are strongest and weakest (less-inclined). In the area in which you are strongest, simply practice as usual. In the area in which you are less-inclined, we can suggest a few simple tools to help gently strengthen these areas:
Reception: Dutifully, willingly, and daily, keep a Dream Journal. Even if you do not remember your dream, write that you do not remember your dream. Experiment with this journaling by writing questions to your Essence, and assume your dreams will respond.
Interpretation: Study an intuitive tool such as the Tarot. Learn how to see and interpret patterns in the layouts. Create symbolic meanings of certain events and patterns around you and observe “signs” around you using synchronicity.
Transmission: Sit still and silent without falling asleep. Practice suddenly relaxing your body at various points in the day. Incorporate psychic hygiene into your daily or weekly routines, allowing your showers/baths to also “brighten” your aura and release any old energy patterns you may sense.
These are quick, simple suggestions, but they will do for your continued explorations.
