I have a client named Shakti, who is also a Facebook friend. She often writes bold comments on my posts, but that’s mostly because English is her second language and it’s hard being subtle in English. Think of Margaret Cho‘s impression of her mother, speaking choppy with an Asian accent, she says. But her bluntness is good as it jars us into the Moment. Earlier this week, she sent me a few links to websites of people who were channelling this spirit guide or yet another archangel Michael. She asked me to respond to what each channelling said – which I did not do – but she also asked me: “How can there be so many people saying they channel the archangels? The messages are all not all the same. Sometimes Archangel Michael sounds like he’s from Jersey. Don’t they know how crazy they sound in their ads? Shouldn’t the angels tell them to not sound crazy?“
Question: How can there be so many people saying they channel the archangels?
Andrea: We all have access to all the information out there. We can all tap into this energetic field at any time, depending on our receptivity. Sure, not everyone is channelling who they say they are, but maybe they think they are. Maybe they mean well, either way. I suggest you take the words as they stand by themselves, not attached to any famous name. If it’s helpful, then use it.
Question: The messages are all not all the same. Sometimes Archangel Michael sounds like he’s from Jersey.
Andrea response: Remember guidance comes through the filter of our human mind, so the result (the channelled words) are always the interpretation of the channel. Like sending a 5 year old kid, a 40 year old secretary, a 20 year old ballerina and a 75 year old railroad engineer to a baseball game, and having each report back to you what they experienced. Same game, but you’ll hear 4 different versions of it.
Question: Don’t they know how crazy they sound in their ads? Shouldn’t the angels tell them to not sound crazy?”
Andrea: People’s ads sound crazy to you when you don’t vibrate in harmony with them. They don’t sound crazy to everyone. If you are not receptive to the message, then clearly that message isn’t meant for you. What sounds crazy to you may give hope to someone else. Your floor may be someone’s else’s ceiling.
Question: Shouldn’t the angels tell them to not sound crazy?”
Andrea: My experience is when someone is really being guided and told to publicly link their name with a spirit guide or angel, they don’t need to market themselves because it all works so differently in that unseen world. People (students/clients) are attracted by other means, by synchronicities of events and meetings. If someone sounds crazy and it’s working for them, there’s something to it. If they sound crazy and no one’s listening, there’s something to it.
Question: What about everyone who says they have an angel but really don’t? Or that they got a message but they made it up to impress me they are more spiritual?
Andrea: LOL, for one, don’t worry so much about what they are doing. They likely feel a presence but can’t get contact because they are too busy making up messages. If they stopped making them up, then actual messages could come through quicker. They may even be surprised by it, thinking they could not actually do it.
These are good questions. It’s not about being more spiritual. Remember the human filter each message goes through. They are likely having a thought and feeling an impression and it is strong enough that they feel they have to say some of the words out loud. And they are not sure how to word it, so they just say they have a message. My experience is that distortion and mis-interpretation comes when they try to form the few words and phrases they may get into full sentences, so they can say it out loud. That’s where most lose the message and go off on an illusory, astral tangent.
If we all knew how interconnected we all are, there would be so much less nonsense and feigning. But without all the drama, without all this contrast, there would be so much less questioning, no much less learning what doesn’t work for us, so much less moving toward does work for us.
Don’t knock what works for someone else, just pay attention to what works for you.
