What is a Platform? 


A platform is a theme chosen by Essence for a one year time frame beginning each May extending through April of the following year.  It is a primary focus of interest, involvement and exploration, and provides a springboard for growth during that one year time frame. It usually consists of just one to three words that best describe and encapsulate the essence of the experience sought by Essence in the year ahead. 


Each person will explore that chosen theme from all angles and perspectives, learning everything they can from their personal experiences around the given theme during the yearly platform cycle. They may choose to continue working with that same platform or may choose an entirely new platform choice in May of the following year. All is chosen by Essence for each platform cycle year. 


Why is it from May through April of the following year? 


Because in many earth-based teachings, the Spiritual new year begins on May 1st. Beltane, May Day, and the traditional MayPole dances of celebration are good examples. It is a time of renewal, rebirth, regeneration, planting seeds and embarking upon new journeys and adventures yet to come. Essence will explore every perspective on the chosen theme from every possible angle in that one year time frame. If essence is really enjoying a particular theme and wishes to learn more from it, then essence may choose to carry it forward into another one year platform cycle. It is entirely up to essence and personality to choose what theme or experience is of most interest to them during the platform cycle year to come. 


Why Does Michael Channel Yearly Platforms? 


Everyone chooses new Platforms in May of each year, whether they are fully aware of it or not. Platform readings with Michael can shed light upon those "essential" choices, giving you a compass by which you may best chart your course through the ups and downs of the year to come. It helps the personality to more fully align with the choices of essence, which allows you to be and to feel more fully empowered to work *WITH* essence rather than against it in the upcoming year. 


Why Do We Have Platform Animal Allies? 


Meeting the animal allies who are supporting you in these platform choices adds depth, further understanding and fresh insights into how to best navigate your course throughout the new platform cycle year. They are always there for you to work with whenever you choose to invite them into your sacred circle for consultation, guidance or support.

What Purpose Does the Sacred Symbol Hold in this Alchemical Triad? 

The sacred symbol is the language of the soul, and also of the subconscious and superconscious mind. It embodies the innate wisdom, insights and lessons learned from all of essence's lifetimes, past, present, future, parallel, concurrent and multidimensional. The sacred symbol serves to anchor the plaform choices in a much deeper and more meaningful way on the soul level of perception. This allows for the deepest transformational experience possible, inside and out, resulting in profound soul growth and progress along the path of return for essence in that platform cycle year. It goes beyond words and intellect alone into the realm of the truly spiritual dimensions of our personal realities, tranforming them from the inside, out, in mind, body and soul. 



   "I've had my platform read by Terri for three years straight, and every time has been so enriching! I love how the different pieces fit together with the theme/animal/symbol for each level of the platform. It's like an impressionist painting that is inspiring whether you're zooming out to see the whole picture, or zooming in to see the mastery in the individual brush strokes. Terri is the best, I can't wait to do more work with her!"- Alex Y.
