Some of Julie’s early work in channel where Micciah discusses:
The qualities of peacefulness. Alignment with love. Reverence for life. “Because you cannot embrace all of life, death becomes a shadow. Because it is not integrated, you can, as a culture, treat death casually.” View Section
The challenge of staying with the life force in the midst of all the upheaval on the earth. “Work with fear in your own lives as part of your challenge. Continue to do what you are doing. Save the day yourselves!” … This time as a cleansing, healing time. View Section

   Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.

   Julie: We do greet you, indeed. This is Micciah Channel, and I'm Julie Winter. Micciah is an energy entity who works with me while I'm in trance,and while I'm in the trance state I have access to a point of view that seems to come from a non-physical realm. This series of programs is drawn primarily from videotapes taken during my regular classes. We want to expand our circle, and include your energy and interest in our work.
   The session that you are going to see today talks about embracing all of life, and the inherent power in doing that. It's about peace and the dynamic nature of peace, and about how this time of stress on the planet is also a time of healing and of cleansing.

   Micciah:  We greet you all, dear friends. You are much interested in, there is much concern and attention toward, the politics, the state of the nation and those factors that have gone into manifesting the conditions that you meet in the world. Is this a time of peaceful non-resistance? Yes. What does that mean? First, you must conceive clearly of what you mean by   peace. Peacefulness is not stillness, necessarily, or quietude. Inner peace is a quality of alinement with love, which is full of life and all its movement. To be full of life also means to embrace death, that is, to have a vibrant awareness of the rising and falling, of bloom and decay. "To embrace death" could be easily misinterpreted. We do not mean to court death, because it is precisely the honoring of life and the reverence for life, true reverence, a joyful celebration, that is the essence of peace. There is not really any death, only transformation. Yet on the physical plane,  you grapple with the life and death of the body, the biological body; and in your culture you are very much concerned with youthful preservation. You have much contempt for age, really a fear and dislike of age, of ripeness, of decay, of death; you shun death. And because you cannot embrace all of life, death becomes the shadow. Because it is not fully chewed up and digested and integrated as part of the totality, you can as culture treat death casually. Weaponry, massive weaponry, has been built upon a denial of death and a loss of the reverence for life. So the inner work, the deep inner work, is to honor and to revere and to celebrate the totality, even when the choice at the level of group is not your conscious choice, to affirm life by celebrating its magnificence and the magnificence of your ordinary energy, of ordinary life with its interweaving and human conflict. Opposing , opposing one force against another only keeps you in opposition. It is very hard to encompass compassion in the midst of chaos, apparent degeneration, unwarranted violence. The skim of piety over the deep feelings that people have allows the violence to collect, to proliferate, and to burst out in a pillaging... And… there is no blame, no blame. Every spirit, every soul is sacred. That means the ones you agree with at the personality level and the ones you don't agree with. How can you create within yourself the spaciousness, the roominess to include the enemy?  To stay with the life force in the midst of all the upheaval in the earth is an enormous challenge, yet each person is magnificently powerful. The great loss is when you relinquish your inner power and say, "The circumstances prevent me from being with  my own power." No! No. That is a lie. Being powerful does not necessarily mean you get your way. The personality conceives of everything being right in the world when it gets its way; that's how you know it's working.
   At the level of the group agreements, there is much fear, and fear produces the kind of worldly circumstances that you have. It is very hard to stay open in the face of fear. It is very difficult, a real challenge to the inner self, to the Great Self, to stay ,open in the face of fear. When things go nicely, it is much easier. So the governments you have created organize themselves in certain ways around the principles of fear, individual isolation, or national isolation, and also reflect the unmet, unchallenged fears that you have. You can work with fear in your own lives as part of your challenge. Where do you shy away from life because you are afraid? How much fear can you tolerate? Not as a way of forcing yourselves but of pushing up against the fear. It is easy, as we have said so often, to know how to fix the world, but to function from the heart, from compassion, from clarity, personally, is another thing.
   What to do? Continue what you are doing. Keep on telling the truth as you see it, and be mindful of the tendency of personality self to make. enemies. If there is only one energy, then who is the enemy? But don't be foolish. Or maybe be more foolish. Maybe wars are fought, hum? Not to be seen a fool. And where are the realized beings, if there are such? Often, religious groups describe the realized beings, the avatars, by means of a formal concept that attempts to describe something that is indescribable. No one is going to make magic for you. Sometimes on a psychological level, there is a projection onto the image of a realized being, usually a man, that he will save the day. But it is time for you to save your own day. There are vast energies, beyond personality, that are the essence of creative ecstasy; and you all partake of them, you can tap into those energies. And you must also work with your personality. This plane is struggling, it is in a vast upheaving struggle with energies that have been unclaimed and unfulfilled for thousands of earth years. Like the final cleansing or healing in a critical stage of a bodily illness, this time is a clearing time, a healing time, if you make it so. And because it is, everything boils to the surface. You are doing the same thing to the body of the earth that you do to your own bodies. You have developed cancers, and they are irradiated, yes(?), in the treatment and poisoned. Chemotherapy is a poison. And you have dumped radioactive poison onto the body of the earth, yes, and poison into the waters and poisons into the air. This represents clearly, clearly, that there is a separation from the experience of the life force. And the only people who can take care of it are the people here, all of you, all of you on the planet. Don't give up. You all chose to be born in this time of great purging, upheaval. Torment in some ways, enormous privilege and opportunity in other ways. Yes. But don't wait to be asked. Staying in kindness, clarity, truth, in the midst of great difficulty, has to be a daily practice, not just a discipline. A practice out of loving it, out of loving it. A dialogue with the earth, with the animals, with the trees, with the strange ecstasy of the city with its edifices and its brilliant light and its violence and its creativity. Do something with it but don't "bad-mouth." That leaks the energy. We don't mean that you should not express your feelings, but pay attention to what you put energy into with your words. Great changes have come about through, let us say, the spiritual work that has been done in the last ten years. Great changes. You can continue. You can continue. And choosing to tell the truth is peaceful. To say "yes" when you really mean "no" does not support peace. This is a time of great cleansing, and it takes all the patience and fortitude that you have. You know also that you are not alone. The planet has guardian spirits. They cannot exactly intervene, but they can assist. They are not exactly a "they" either, they don't have hats and coats. We are speaking of an energy, or energies.
   So… take every chance to celebrate life and to embrace the totality. And align your own energies with the source. Help is with you, assistance is with you. Confront your own fears. Fear at the group level is the culmination, or the sum total, of the undischarged, unclaimed fears of old beings. And also take action, take action, support what you care about, support what supports life! Practice healing, or the revelation of the wholeness, which is really what healing is. Healing means to make whole, it means knowing somewhere, deep inside yourself, or with your Great Self, that it is whole, that the circumstances are the circumstances but not the cosmic truth. It is the manifest world. And you are responsible for it.
   Do you wish to ask further? This is clear?
   And don't take anyone's word for it. Ours or anyone else's.
   We who are sharing with you thank you for being here. We wish to tell you again that love is always present, and guidance is always available. And we leave you with that. We bid you a very good evening.

   Julie: “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.”
