One of the most confusing elements of the Michael information is when we try to correlate the CHAKRAS with the CENTERS, and then try to extrapolate from that. Most times, this is ok, but Michael has never claimed that their system is an extension of eastern philosophy, in fact, the Essence and Personality System stands on its own. I once asked Michael how to correlate the Tarot Cards with the Essence and Personality system, or the Soul Ages with Numerology, and Michael explained that these systems stand on thier own, and are not meant to even if they have compatibility. They said, “To try to superimpose other systems or perspectives over our own, is as valid as investigating the components of Water, Lemons, and Sugar. Though similarities can be certainly found, to confuse or replace one for the other would be disorienting. It is only in the combining of these elements, in appropriate proportions, that you may find your refreshing gestalt.” I hope my exploration here, helps. I will send this as an attachment, following this post, in case this does not translate well. ENJOY!
