Basic Michael Books
« on: April 19, 2011, 02:47:48 AM »
If I were going to recommend the basic Michael books to have, I would most definitely start with the Tao to Earth and Earth To Tao books by Jose Stevens. I've had mine so long and read them so many times they are literally falling apart at the seams, but I still get some new understanding out of them every time I read them.

For something much different in organization, but very packed with information, I would also recommend Shepherd Hoodwin's The Journey of Your Soul. It's mostly written from Shepherd's perspective with some channeled sections here and there, and this dual-perspective gives huge amounts of useful information about the teachings. There are even some bonus comedy sections at the end -- I'll never forget the old soul hot tub!

Those two together give a pretty good grounding in the teachings.

And as a bonus, a great book that is less about learning the system and more of a how-to manual for living a better life Michael-style is Searching for Light by Carol Heideman. Absolutely love this book, particularly the visualization Michael gives of what our world will be like in the future. Just wonderful.

I've never read Carol's book but I know a friend who has it, some perhaps I'll snag her copy when she's not looking. Darn those crafty Artisans.

Could you give an overview of what Michael saw in the future? I'm assuming they were dealing with probabilities, since predictions don't jive with them.

Best,
Dave

You're right, it wasn't a prediction - it was a visualization of what a future Earth could be like if everyone chose growth through joy instead of growth through pain. Think: aging much more slowly, being able to visually see people's feelings in their aura so you don't have to wonder about what their intentions are, no pollution, and doctors prescribing vacations instead of drugs.

ETA: Yeah, I see I said what our world WILL be like in my original post. I should have said what our world COULD be like.

Thanks for book recommendations, here and on the thread I started.  Since I'm so interested in the Michael Teachings, I think I better buy some books.   :)

Varda Hasselmann is a German channel and has now about a dozen books written. One has been translated into English: "Archetyps of the soul". Highly recommended! She started the beginning of 1980s with channeling and holds seminars every year. In her other books, she often published channelings who was made ??for seminar participants. An further interesting source.

Hearing about a book with the word "archetype" in the title is the same as showing chocolate lovers a hot fudge sundae.   :D  It's now on my list of books to buy.

I just finished reading Compass of the Soul: Archetypal Guides to a Fuller Life, by John L. Giannini.  It's based on Myers-Briggs, which he divides into NT, NF, ST, SF and makes a case at length - 450 pages! - for the two middle letters being archetypcal in nature.

I enjoy comparing the various personality methods with each other, seeing where there's a correlation or where no comparison is possible.  The MT is the only method so far that has me looking seriously at my thoughts/behavior/spiritual state.

The 'Original' Basics:

"Messages From Michael", by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro (for Twitter fans, and MT posters aka: MFM)

"More Messages From Michael", ibid (aka: MMFM)

"Michael's People", ibid (aka: MP - long hard to find, proposed publication of second edition mass paper generally coincided with The Michael's release of info. about "Operation Northwoods", a Nixon plot to nuke Detroit and blame it on the USSR - TRUE STORY.  NSA threatened all "Michael's People" with rendition to Iran for treason/release of classified information.  The essential nature of the Teachings was changed forever.)

Is the Detroit story, and the Michael connection thereto, really really true???? I have a copy of Michael's People, and in fact re-read most of it recently. In what ways did it change the Teaching? I am way curious.

I've never heard that one, and I don't believe it for a number of reasons.

I'm not at all surprised that there are rumors like that in the vicinity of every war-hawk president. After all, in the way some psychopaths reason, if it worked for Pearl Harbor, why won't it work again? That doesn't mean that anyone with two brain cells more than God gave a gerbil would be serious about knocking out part of America's industrial base before heading into a second war while Vietnam was still going on.

I don't believe it, either. The Michael books are not fear-based.

My introduction to the Michael teachings came in Joya Pope's excellent book 'The World According to Michael'. Dunno if it is still in print, but it focuses on the basic concepts of soul ages, roles, overleaves, etc. without the narrative. I later met Joya in the late 80's and was deeply impressed by her ability to channel the Michael entity and it was she who identified my profile which still sings for me today.
