Inner Michael: What does it mean?

What does “Inner Michael” mean? Well, in your “inner being” is the highest and finest expression of what it means to be  human. It is the essence, the higher self, the Monad or the Christ within. Called many things by many traditions, it is the spark and the sparkle. It is “The One” who found the most unlikely place to hide… inside.

“Inner Michael” is the Michael I discovered and continue to discover in the life and work of Michael Jackson. It is both personal and universal journey to the real identity of one we called Michael. He is the startling and sparkling gem buried under all the projections flung at him from the collective consciousness of the world and the reflection of the mirror that he held and the one that he was. He reflects humanity’s collective shadow and collective brilliance. He is the hero of antiquity, the modern prophet, the dying and rising god, the fool and the magician, the Lancelot and the King. He is whoever you imagine in your mirror, your imagination, your inner self…

We all have this inner brilliance available to us. It makes itself known in tragedies, in crises, in those moments when super human strength takes over, the heart engages, the mind becomes focused and the brilliance of the human spirit shines from the God-self, the God within. May you find your “Inner Michael” here but… called by your birthname.

    Your words are inspirational, warm, loving and beautiful, just like Michael. Michael instilled in me the opportunity to increase my “Sparkle” as I am one of his admirers; always have been and always will be. His Humanitarianism will never be lost/forgotten as we, yes you included, will always cherish his being for all time.

    Barbara, thank you for your beautiful words about our “Inner Michael.” Michael brought light into this world and inspired many people. I’ve always appreciated Michael for his gifts; we must not forget his love, compassion, drive to heal this world, and his humanitarian and philanthropic work. I truly believe Michael was very aware of many things. Michael has inspired me to find my “Inner Michael”.

    Rev. Barbara, I am so very glad I discovered this beautiful site. Your well chosen words, touching, kind, warm, healing and inspiring. I believe our Michael was an “old” soul, a lovely man with his concern about our Planet. In This is It he warned us that we only have 4 years time to save the earth (Maya 2012 ?). His poem Planet Earth makes me cry and you can hear him sigh. Why did he have to leave us? It’s unbelievable, this soft soul. I hope I can find my Inner Michael. He was a gift from God. I am glad I lived in Michael’s era. Now he sparkles in Heaven. The word is L.O.V.E. Greetings to all readers from the Netherlands.
