Transcript of Micciah January 28, 2016 (Part 1) (Trance, Ego, Relationship to a late loved one

A short description of what will happen in a session and preparation to go into trance. The introduction in trance with a discussion of the ego, and then a question about how one's relationship to a loved one who has passed continues.

   Julie: OK. So, generally when I enter the altered state there is sort of an opening statement. I don’t know who writes their material, but… And the Micciah says, “Please, what are your questions?” So, as them in the order that you asked them. Joy’s and then Judith’s, and then yours Malia, and then your Julia.
   And Nikki needs to go to a gala, so when you need to go just.. [waves goodbye] You know where that bell is? On the wrong side.

   Nikki: Great.

   Julie: [arranging herself] OK. So, even though I’m doing the physical channeling my experience of it is that we all contribute. And channeling with different groups is very different. Andin the times when I channeled 500 people in the room is very different experience from channeling with you all. Wasn’t a bad experience, just different.
   So I’m most appreciative of being able to do this. To share the information for you to evaluate. I ask to be guided, to be clear, and I ask that the work be blessed.
   And it takes me a moment to shift.

   Micciah: So we greet you dear friends. And we are most pleased to be with you and to be invited to participate with all of you. And we say, as we often do, that when you gather now, and always, there are many non-physical energies who gather with you. Some are guides and are here when you meditate and talk and journey. Some are here because you are their teachers. As you are curious about other realms, they are curious about this realm. And your gift to them is to share who you are and the workings of this dimension with them.
   Speaking Joy, to your question, and somewhat to yours, Judith. [patting Jared’s arm] (I have a very strong sense of your mother. Smiling. Jared’s mother who was part of this group, of the Wednesday group for many, many, many, many years. We can see her laughing.) And you are in the midst, in this group, of making an inquiry about commitment, intention, contracts, promises. It’s a very fruitful investigation.
   And we want to say one thing, which we think Julie touched on. In this exploration, in any exploration, of the choices that you make, that your personality, the… Is isn’t always the personality. That you make. From what part of the self, the great self, does the choice arrive? Is it from the ego. We have nothing against egos, to live in the material world, in the physical realm, to have a flexible loving ego. And this will relate to your question Malia, is a good thing. It is when the ego controls too much, is making choices that should come from another level, that there are problems. So from what level or your being does a choice arrive? When you make a commitment, when you make a promise, when you have an intention, is it coming solely from the ego to gratify the ego alone? Is it arising from the level of the soul? A need of the soul?
   And just as a connected piece of information, sometimes when you work with an issue in your life, you wish to do a particular thing, have a particular thing happen, and you are focusing on it, intention, and so forth, and it does not happen. Sometimes, not always, you are, unbeknownst you’re your ego self, not aligned with your soul. And the soul is not willing, in that particular case, to (what is the expression?), go along with the program.
   So, in exploring your commitment and promises and intentions, coming from the soul? Coming from the ego? Coming through as pure spirit? Coming as a combination of both? Remember to ask about that. It will enrich your life. Always, do ask about that.
   And then you need to be able, of course, to discern. Ego can sometime be a little trickster. “But I want it. I want it. But I want it!” So, Joy, please, what is your question?

   Joy:  [on Skype] My question is: when you lose a loved one, how does the relationship continue? And does it continue? And how do you deepen it?

   Micciah: Complicated question. We will do our best.
   Often, people who are sensitive, and people who do not think of themselves as sensitive but become sensitive in the face of losing a loved one, will see, will “see” that person. Yes? “I woke up in the middle of the night and I saw my mother standing at the foot of my bed.” After you leave your body, you don’t any longer need the shape, the features of your physical self. However, sometimes in order to communicate and be identified the person who has passed will take on the recognizable shape. So you see her, him, in a dream, or while you are awake you hear the person’s voice. Those are adjustments made for your benefit so that you can communicate.
   We have said this before, we will say it again, the realms are all interwoven. Hundreds of realms, thousands, thousands of realms. Because they operate in a different system, you are all not bumping into each other. But some human beings, physical beings, can perceive many realms. So, when a loved one dies… It is really different for everyone. It isn’t one size fits all.
   Now we are going to go again into the language of time and, as we have said before about this, there isn’t any time once you have left the physical realm and time in the physical realm is very slippery, but, with that in mind. Some times, people pass, and the need… The element that was incarnate needs to do what you would think of as resting. They just rest. They rest in the light. They rest surrounded by their teachers and guardians. They are not “doing anything.” They are not communicating. Although you may attune to them. Some beings pass. They do what is called in India, dropping the body. What, we think Pat Rodegast perhaps, “It is like selling the old ford.” And they are ready to communicate. They are with their guides. They are with their loved ones. They are aware of the closeness of all the realms and they are ready to communicate, in a dream, through a vision, through a sense, the feeling that someone is there. Sometimes, someone has passed will particularly communicate through scent. “I smelled my father’s tobacco. My mother’s perfume.” Even though there is no one present.
   Always remember you can communicate from your side with people who have passed. And they are appreciative of it. Offering prayers, having conversations. Is it really with that… This is the part that’s hard to describe. We were going to say “Is it really with the entity?” Yes. Although when you pass, often but not always, and not always right away, you join with, what Jane Roberts called, what Seth called the oversoul. So you, as you experience yourself, are just a portion of a much larger being. And when you die, you return to connection with that being. However, the part you are communicating with is the part you knew in this incarnation, and probably other incarnations. So you can communicate verbally if that’s… It isn’t needed, but If that is what you are moved to do. You can communicate silently in prayer and meditation. In song, in dance. And they are nourished. The interchange between the realms is creative and nourishing, or can be. Through writing if you like. Whatever way you experience as the easiest way to connect.
   So this is the perception that we have. In Buddhism, we believe they say there is no continuation of the individual self. We are saying, well, there is and there isn’t. And you can communicate with the entity you knew and loved. Yes. Is that clear?

   Joy: Yes.

   Micciah: Hmm. This must be the evening for communicating. Now, this one has an impression of Lynne, her dear friend, who is saying, “Oh, you have no idea, [laughs] you have no idea.”

   Julie: “What I believe happens when I am channeling is that I enter an expanded geography of the self, and that there is an overlap between what I know (my intelligence, my awareness, my experience) and something that is larger than my ordinary awareness. It may indeed be that it is all part of my awareness and that would be fine. What’s produced is a personality that is a product of the overlapping and the personality is called Micciah.
   This channeling is meant to be a spiritual, emotional, intellec­tual, heartful, mindful journey that I share with another realm, that I share with my classes and that we all share with you. Please go over the material, evaluate it for yourself, and know what it is that you think about it.”
