Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1987 where Micciah discusses:
Handling Fear View Section
Bringing the richness of the soul experience to everyday life: This requires the letting-go of fear. Recognize that the personality is also divine and a grand experiment. Fear causes loss of delight, and results in a “mechanical experience of life.” Practice compassion, awareness, appreciation. 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.
   I want to thank all of you who have been watching and who have written to me. And what you are going to see is me, with my personality and intelligence, awareness, go into an altered state. And while I’m in that altered state, I join with other energies, or another energy, and produce the personality of Micciah. I have, in that state, an awareness that I don’t ordinarily have. And I’m going to respond to questions that my classes have asked me.


   Micciah: We greet you all dear friends.
   The issue of fear and how to deal with various kinds of fears is one that has been with you in human life as one of the riddles of this plane of existence, one of the conundrums that faces you living in the amazing strength and the paradoxical fragility of a body, living in the elements. Even in your contemporary, quote “civilized” culture, there is a deep fascination with the elements. Your news reports still describe the weather. It is something you mostly can not control that can have a profound effect on your life, the fears that you have about death, about loss.
   Fear is the center of all other distortions. No matter how they appear, the inner quality of that which turns you away or may turn you away from the life force is fear. And when we say that it is a riddle, we say this because it seems so real when you are afraid, so present, so palpable, so consuming, and so much action, so many decisions on a global basis are made under the influence of fear.
   How to live in the world, an apparently fearful place, and yet know that you are protected, that you are enveloped by love, that you are indwelled by love, that the very cells of your body dance through experience on the fire of love. And it does not work to pretend. One can not be authentically empowered and still have to pretend, “Oh, I’m not afraid.” That has no integrity. Moreover, the denial of fear, the denial of it nourishes its roots, just as the shared excitement of it can nourish its roots. Now, past a certain point fear is not exciting. Some danger is exciting. There is a point beyond which it is horrifying. Yet, even in war, sometimes the effect of the intensification of the situation or during a natural disaster: tornado, a flood, a volcano; the intensification of feeling bursts through ordinary strictures and strangely sometimes enables people to come tog ether. Mysterious. Mysterious. How would it be if the excitement of pleasure and sharing allowed people to come together as it does sometimes?
   So, sometimes fears are used as a drug of excitement to get the adrenaline flowing so that life seems more lively. And in some cases this is not a bad thing as long as it is not enacted. For instance, children do frequently go through a phase when they love stories that are scary, because it is the scare of the story in the context, the greater context of relative safety of the home, however safe that is in an individual case; and there is the “Oh, ah! And then what happened? And then what happened?” that is the challenging or exciting aspect of fear which later in the adult life could be usefully employed in the facing of the unknown if you were in a greater context of safety. Children who are already badly frightened, children who are already wounded or stressed do not like scary stories for the same reasons. But children who feel relatively safe delight in them.


   Julie: Stop for a moment. Take a breath. Notice how you feel and what your responses are to the information that you have just seen. Do you need to go over it? Think about it? Integrate it? Look around the room you’re in. And in just a moment we’re going to go back and look at some more taped sessions of Micciah Channel.


   Micciah: So, what are your questions? Yes.

   Pamela: Umm. I’ve been wondering, when you begin to touch the bigness of your own soul and the richness of it, sometimes what you also experience is how small the personality is in relationship to it and that can be sort of, very frustrating, and devastating actually and bring up a lot of impatience. So, I was wondering how to bring more of that soul experience into the personality on a really every day level, not only in accessing information in a very conscious moment to moment state, but also, umm, living in the love, in that richness.

   Micciah: Yes. So, really in some ways these questions are related when we say the riddle in the physical world, one of the big ones is the resolution, the offering up of fear. The soul, the soul is not afraid. The soul is sometimes in awe of the vast one, in contemplation of the one, yet it is not afraid.
   First of all, we hope you are not going to be in splitting of the thinking mind, saying “Ah, the soul, the soul is good. The soul is all. The personality-ba ba ba ba bad. Boring. Small. Selfish. Isolated. Fearful. Bad.” No. The personality is divine or can be. No. The personality is divine. All of the divinity is already present. It is a question of dropping the veil so that you can see it, or open the heart so that you can feel it. And the personality self with its quirks and talents and abilities, thoughts, ideas, plans is like an outfit, yes?, that you experiment with in the physical world.
   So it also is part of the beloved. When the personality self is much in the distortion of fear, not the scary exciting delighted part, but another kind of fear...you have this one word, fear, that is supposed to cover all the bases, but there are lots of kinds of fear...so, when the personality self is very much contracted, which also can be a life experiment, then it loses a sense of delight, it loses its reference point of the soul, and it becomes confined to a mechanical view, a mechanical experience of life. It does not know that it is fed by the soul. How to let the soul qualities do their natural thing which is to be able to penetrate the personality and inform it, it you? How? Through the practice of compassion, through the awareness of deep appreciation for the gift of life itself, for the incarnation itself, for the very opportunity, if you will pardon our using this word, for the very opportunity of facing the riddle of fear, because it is just.... it is mostly on this plane of action, mostly in this realm that you can grapple with these fears. In most of the other realms it’s not an issue. So, compassion, appreciation, attunement, whether it is through meditation or dancing or painting, making love, having a garden, all of them, finding ways for the personality to drink in the delight of being alive. Reverence for the earth and for yourself, for your struggle, the willingness to experience the excitement and sometimes the fear of confronting those distorted fears that reside in the personality, not only fears that come from the psychological history of the present life, also fears that enter with the incarnation, that are fears that resonate from other lifetimes.


   Julie: OK, I’m back again. Take a break. Look around the room at the slice of reality that you are in at this moment. Take a breath. Let yourself relax. Shake out. And we’re going to go back and look at some more Micciah Channel.


   Micciah: The great opener is love. This is said so often it has... You have become deaf to it probably. “Oh, yes, yes, love, hmm mm, we know that, hmm mmm.” That is to say experiencing love, beginning with the personal and moving down and out into greater depth and wider and wider circles until the whole of you is dancing with the totality, the emptiness that is completely filled.
   So, often the personality self, when given information, brushes it aside. “There must be some other secret than this.” Special words. There are special words. Mysterious techniques. There are teachings that incorporate mysterious techniques and special words. There are techniques that, or groups that believe that only the enlightened guru will carry you safely through. That is one way, yet there are many other ways. And in this time particularly it is for each of you to find the path and to put your feet upon it, to have your feet upon it in the simplest possible way. Kindness. “Oh, yes, kindness, uh huh, mmm mmm, right, yeh, kindness.” Kindness to yourself, kind words, all of that. So, you ask in some ways too much of yourselves and in some ways not enough of yourselves. You ask yourselves to do things you can not do: save the whole world, stop war; as if you personally could do that, and yet sometimes given a simple practice to follow you can not help yourself follow it, and you keep wanting yourself to do it all when what you can do is right in front of your nose.
   So we encourage you to begin right where you are with simple practice and with devotion, which is one of the great tests also of this realm, devotion to life which includes destruction and the face of death in this apparently dualistic enterprise of the earth.
   We will leave you with that. We thank you all for your being here and we bid you a very good and joyful day.


   Julie: That’s the end of this particular segment... of this particular adventure. And 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. So long.
