What is The Christ Self ?

Question: Maitreya stated that as the ego was not an original part of our beings on a natural planet, the Christ Self was given to us on these unnatural planets so as to compensate. Is in fact the Christ Self an angel within us, our guardian angel?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar – Moving Toward Golden Age Relationships.

Well again, you have to be careful not to be too attached to certain words, we have given many teachings that there are limitations to words. You need to recognize that in the past, both in spiritual teachings, but also in religious teachings, “angels” is a word that was used in a very broad sense for almost anything that was beyond the physical realm. There were messengers of God that were seen as angels, there were guardian angels that were protecting you or guiding you.

But of course, you can have a more nuanced, more specific understanding of this, so that you can realize that there are beings in the spiritual realm that can be called angels, but not all spiritual beings or phenomena are angels. You can call the Holy Christ Self your guardian angel, but you have to be careful that you do not take these traditional, for example Christian images of angels, and transfer that to the Christ Self. The Christ Self does not fit in that conceptual language of the traditional view of angels.

We have given teachings on the Christ Self from various perspectives. The simplest teaching is to say that there is an ascended master, who decides to sponsor you, and therefore creates an extension of its being that becomes your Christ Self to give you a frame of reference, as you are open to seeing it. But other explanations can be given that can also be valid in specific contexts.
