Priest / Goading
« on: May 19, 2011, 12:08:00 AM »
It has been said that Priests help others by helping or goading others to self-examination.

For other Priests: How do you view and/or use goading?

For non-Priests: Have you been on the receiving end of their goading?  What are your ideas about it?

For me, I find it's a great tool when someone's stonewalling and not acknowledging their feelings or insights.  I'm sneaky enough with it that it usually catches someone off-guard, and their response (while potentially volatile) can often start a whole new line of investigation.  I used to be more brazen with it in my younger days, but regard it as a much more situational (and powerful) tool the older I get.  Namely, because through experience and the teachings I've discovered that most others dislike the Priestly pace of growth/lessons/etc. that I prefer.  Which is fine - I'll be here when you're ready.   :)

Hi folks,

I stumbled onto the Michael Teachings via Thayer White about 18 months ago while feeling an urge to investigating all things related to being an "Old Soul."  Finding the Michael Teachings description of one was like a light bulb turning on, and has helped myself and a few acquaintances to accept themselves and their place in the world a bit better.

From personal research and reflection, I consider myself a 6th level Old Priest, Goal of Growth, Idealist Attitude, Observation Mode, Moving part of Intellectual Center, Chief Features Self-Deprecation and Self-Destruction.  I'm looking to have all of that confirmed via a reading in the near future (along with getting some elaboration on my Life Task, casting, and verifying my ET).

My soap box is mostly retired at this point, and I tend to lurk rather than post - but will pipe in on occasion if I can help, or if a direct question is asked.  :)
