On my Michael
Reading charts, I channel both a person’s true soul age and the soul age he is
manifesting at the time I channel the chart. Our manifested soul age is the
average level of our personality’s perspective at a given time; it can change
relatively rapidly if it is lower than our true
soul age. I’ve had clients who
rose from manifesting second-level mature, for example, to fourth-level mature
in a matter of months. Our true soul age is our level of potential function, the
perspective of our inner self. It is more significant and impactive than our
manifested age, which is more on the surface.
In every lifetime, we manifest first-level infant
at birth, since our body is not capable of sustaining a higher perspective; our
true soul age may be evident, but it is not engaged, because on the level of
personality, we have to focus on infant soul lessons such as survival. As we get
older, our manifested soul age can increase up to our highest level of previous
attainment in past lifetimes. However, we might become stuck at a certain level,
at least in some area of our life. For example, a
mature soul may manifest young
because he doesn’t want to face some difficult relationship issues; he’s more
comfortable focusing on success. Or an
old soul may manifest mature, because he
is not willing to give up some attachments. It is similar to an adult being
emotionally younger than his true age in some way because of a trauma that
occurred in the past—he is staying at that place until he is willing or able to
deal with it.
We also might deliberately manifest at a
particular level longer than would otherwise be necessary to review some
lessons. For example, an old soul may need a “brushup” on
regarding success and money, and may spend the first half of his life focused on
business endeavors. I am not implying that everyone working in the business
world is manifesting young—it is more subtle than that. Our manifested soul age
is the dominant focus of our lives, no matter what we are doing externally.
Someone manifesting as a mature soul in business, for instance, is likely to be
most interested in the relationship aspects of business, even if he is required
to spend a lot of time dealing with other aspects of it.
Soul age manifestation is sometimes a mixed bag. A
fifth-level old soul may be manifesting young in the area of money, for example,
mature in the area of relationships, and old in most other areas. The energies
that these perspectives generate might combine to form a composite manifested
age of seventh-level mature. Since it can be an average, manifested soul age may
not always seem to completely fit. Again, true soul age is more important
anyway, since it describes the real person rather than what is happening at the
moment on the surface.
soul age can sometimes advance even
if it is not fully manifested.
someone is manifesting a younger soul age, he may still be gleaning valuable
experience. He may, for example, be on his last lifetime as a first-level mature
soul, and his review of some baby and young lessons may be all he needs in order
to move on to second-level mature.
third-level old soul may not have developed fully in certain types of
relationships when he was a mature soul. For instance, he may have developed a
strong mature-soul perspective in sexual, male-female relationships, but not
have had much experience with mature soul male bonding. Maybe he did not have
any case, when a problem arises in this area, he may not have many resources to
fall back on. He may simply not know how to share emotional intimacy with
another man, how to trust without being competitive. He is where he would have
been as a mature soul when he would have normally first handled this issue.
Doing so now might help him advance to fourth-level old. Once he integrates the
mature soul lessons in this area, he is likely to move on to old soul lessons in
it, since that is his true perspective. Old soul bonding, by the way, is deeper,
yet less personal.
does not have to manifest third-level old in all aspects of his life to advance
to fourth level, as long as he fills in the gaps he needs to fill.
A person may also need to review some lessons that
he already learned because they have not been reinforced for several lifetimes.
As the saying goes, “Use it or lose it.”
Once, Michael commented on a chart:
Steve is manifesting slightly higher than his own soul level due to imprinting.
He was sixth-level mature manifesting at seventh.
I would have thought that impossible, but the client confirmed that it was true.
I suppose that means that he is living from a perspective that he has not yet
“earned.” Perhaps it is like the disciples of spiritual masters who are given
experiences they couldn’t have had on their own, and who then must grow into
them. Since Michael has only made this comment through me once, I assume that
this sort of thing is rare.
