Some of Julie’s early work in channel where Micciah discusses:
How do souls incarnate aspects of themselves in rebirth? View Section
How do we live up to our potential?How do we recognize our potential and go about creating it? View Section
How do we rebalance and heal the earth after the damage done by nuclear explosions? 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.

   Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends. We think it would be safe, or maybe not safe, to say that the purpose of all of the realms, in their various ways, is to move closer and closer to an experience of being the source, of being the ecstasy that is life, whether it is life in the physical realm or life in some other realm. And each realm has its own mysteries. Arthur, we are answering your question. The question is how is it that souls come to incarnate aspects of themselves in rebirth. Each realm has its mysteries. Each realm has that which is obvious and evident within the context of that realm itself and that which is apparently hidden, more hidden in some cultures and in some times than in others.
   We will have to stay with the metaphor of linear time just for purposes of discussion, even though there is no time. In your world, in this world, there is time, and that is one of the mysteries: how to be liberated while living with a clock that seems always to be ticking. And how to reach a vibrant sense of the ineffable, of timelessness, of safety, in a world that is apparently solid, dangerous, and limited. The mystery here is to press through the personal self into union with everyone and everything. How to press through the apparent oppositions, the dichotomies, the differences. How to melt, how to surrender, how to yield, how to give up into the magnificence of ordinary life. And how to listen to the earth's song. Sandy, this relates to your question about rebalancing the earth after nuclear explosions. In your culture, you don't listen! The earth is singing, the waters are singing. People around you, the animals, the trees, all have a song. And you need to listen with your heart to be at one with the song, lest the personality and its attachments pull you into the loneliness of being apart and special in that lonely way, disconnected. There is no inside and no outside. That split, that is so accentuated in culture, between what is "outside" me and what is "inside" me is a mystery. There is no outside. It is all one flow. The nuclear explosions and the damage you have done to the planet is like a scream beyond a scream. The earth screams. And the earth has permitted it. And the guardian of the earth are still rocking you, watching over you.
   So, some of the purpose of being here in this place in the body, with other bodies, is to penetrate the mystery of otherness through apparently separate self. And you have a very hard job of it in this culture, yes? It is tough to bite into this life in this time. But other times have hard elements. It is some of the challenge in being here to ride through cellular life with love and with confidence. Meditation, if you wish to do it, assists you greatly in that vibrant stillness, when you really feel the breath and song of everything together. But don’t meditate as if it were a school assignment, because that will spoil it for you. And it is possible to contemplate your life and its purpose in terms of your actions and the way each action either unites you with the whole, sings of your unity with the whole, or separates you further from the whole. To what purpose do you make choices? Or what is the purpose of the choices you make? Does it bring you closer or move you further from oneness? Life here is so creative.
   So, what is the next question?

   Samuel: How does one live up to one’s potential?

   Micciah: We have touched on it. Well, we will add something to that. First you must have an inner knowing about your path. Now, in a profound sense, it is really all  the same path more or less. It comes in different shapes and sizes and brand names, different colors, different sexes, different times. In the sense that the purpose is to be at one with everything, it is the same purpose. But you make different choices in each life, you explore different aspects, and you must know your aspect from what your parents hoped your aspect would be or what your peer group thinks your aspect should be. So part of the journey is to find the truth of your particular path into the one. Everyone's is different. It could be that painting brings you closer, or weaving, or farming. Only you can choose what most deeply sings the songs of your own soul's urge. It could be that the life of the very successful, worldly person is the one that best expresses your soul's song. And it could be that the life of the very simple person, in a worldly sense, best expresses it. So it is up to you to feel and to see, and to be guided in your dreams, and to be truthful in your own integrity about what expresses your soul's song.
    Everything is service. Everything. It is all there is. Compassionate service. It sounds very boring, doesn't it? You think of compassionate service in some sort of sugary way, but it is full of life and challenge and excitement. So...
   You know when you are falling off your path. Your inner self will tell you when you are off your purpose. And so will your experience. When you are off your purpose, it is dusty, like ashes in your mouth. Nothing is satisfying. Sometimes it means going all the way back in your own time line of development, asking the guides, your own guides, "What did I mean to do?" Now, there is no accident, so if you have gone off purpose you can come back. But, you know, you must find out: "What risks have I given up taking? How do I deprive myself of the ecstasy of sharing, of union, of surrender, of the dance? How have I given it up?" Boredom, deadness, is a sign. And it doesn't mean you have to run out and do something exciting but that you have lost your contact, temporarily, with the source which reveals ecstasy in all the ordinary things that you do. You don't have to look far. Is this clear? Ask if you don't understand.
   So, then, please go on.

   Sandy: You discussed a little bit about the nuclear explosions. Can we, in a healing way, help to heal the earth and help to create a balance for what has occurred?

   Micciah: Yes. Well, some of you are trying to. Now, we will go back to what we said earlier about there being no outside and no inside. when you split those very tiny particles, atoms -- they are not scientifically particles, they are atoms -- when you split an element that is so intrinsic to life, common to everything, you get a very large explosion. And the explosion rep resents unclaimed feelings at a group level. You think we are fooling, but we are not. It is like a pool, a bomb, quite literally, of all the aspects of self that have not been claimed. And it is cumulative. At this time in your culture it is the discharge of those feelings and elements that have been unclaimed on a personal basis for all the hundreds and hundreds of years that it took to develop this culture in its particular form. So it represents group energies. This is hard to explain. It is not just that some people discovered, by accident, how to make this bomb. It is as if the shadow side, the cruelty, the violence, the destructive impulses (the negatively destructive impulses), have come together in a way that you can see. So to reverse it, each person, and group, and larger group, and so on, needs to begin by claiming their own feelings and creating peace on an individual basis. Now, just a moment, because the mind says, "Oh, that's silly, that is too simple." We have talked about this before. It is not silly, and it is certainly not simple. And it doesn't mean that you can't get angry. Anger is just part of being alive. But to say, "I claim responsibility for my world," both in the smaller sense and the larger sense, is what begins the healing process. And you can also spend some time, take some time, and focus the healing energies that you have on the planet. The planet is a body. Imagine together, as you are now doing at the start of your sessions, and those of you watching can imagine also, that you are focusing your attention toward healing the wounds on the earth. Never mind that the talking self, the small talking self, says, "Oh, it's silly, it won't work, oh, it's silly, it won't work..." Try it. It does work. And the power of a group is very much greater than the power of a single individual. It is a geometric progression, and more than that. And talk to people about it, even if it is embarrassing. It is worth the risk of being embarrassed. If you get bored at a party, you can always ask if the person to your left at dinner has meditated on healing the earth recently. [laughter] It should perk up conversation!
   When you are connected, when your cells and your selves are hearing the earth's song and the galaxy's song, then you cannot feel the bomb. It would be a violation even to contemplate. And the bomb of cancer in people's bodies is related. It is not a punishment, either. It is a reflection. It is a reflection of your own consciousness. So can you balance it? Begin with yourself. Begin with the groups you are in, begin with meditating, begin with behaving in a peaceful way. Don't be embarrassed to begin with what is modest.
   This has been such a serious session. All of you doers and Miss Zoe, who is a doer.
   We will say good evening now. We hope you all will meditate on healing the earth, even if you think it is silly, and fine some wonderful way of celebration in the ordinary days of your lives. And we will see you again in the autumn. Your work and your time is very much appreciated, and we share with you all much love and joy and grace. And we bid you a very good summer.

   Julie: Channeling is a little like that. [Her cat, Hummingbird, perched on top of a wire fence.] That's the end for now.  What we do in class at the end of a session is go over the information, talk about it, evaluate it, find out what works for us individually and what doesn't, and we invite you to do the same.
   Several final words. The thread that runs through my work of, which the channeling is one aspect, is healing. So, the thread of healing goes through my work with individuals, my teaching, my lecturing, my writing. And that healing, I believe, comes from a truthful exploration of one's relationship with spirit. Spirit heals through us, and that healing enables us to be with the sacred nature of everyday life. I urge you to use your prayers and meditations toward experiencing the joy and sacred nature of life itself.

   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.”
