MICCIAH CHANNEL: JULIE WINTER
Produced by Jon Child
Transcript of Program 128, 1989 [CC]
Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1989 where Micciah discusses:
• The impermanence of everything in the dance of duality. Only the “vital force” endures; only its symbols and messengers, that “rest in the duality,” can give comfort. View Section
• Soul-families: We belong to “families of magnificent intention,” who play in this and other realms “to express divinity.” Each family creates its own sound, which “broadcasts healing and delight”; one can learn to sense it within and sing it. View Section
• The future of the nuclear family: As it has developed in our culture, it is a “violent” unit, fostering isolation. It “would ... flourish within [greater] community.” Babies (everyone) would “be happier [if] touched affectionately by numbers of people.” We suffer deeply, organically, from the literal loss of touch.

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.
And I want to thank all of you who have been watching and who have written to me. What you are going to see is me, with my personality and intelligence, awareness, go into an altered state. While I’m in that altered state, I join with other energies, or another energy, and produce the personality of Micciah. And 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.
Within the dance of separation and duality, which is itself a sacred dance, all things — all beings — all planets — are born.... and fade away. It is only the vital force, the matrix and the pulse and the breath of eternity, that holds it all, that endures. All else is impermanent.
And when your living tissue and your heart is punctured by suffering, and the great suffering of loss, what comforts you? Nothing within the duality itself will offer profound comfort. You cannot heal the duality; you cannot heal the suffering, ameliorate it, unless you can reach outside, beyond the splitting, into mystery and union.
And the symbols of union, the symbols of oneness, unending whole-ness, rest in the duality, are represented in the duality itself, and act as messengers — mythic voices, faces, touches — that are reminders of what you know very deeply in your cells: union and mystery. So that it was provided for more completely in other cultures: the comfort for suffering, the balm (b - a - l - m) that could heal the piercing-through of suffering, was provided for in the rituals and the songs, in the touch of an animal’s paw, in the magnificence of a dream, in the drops of rain. In all of this lived the messengers of a mysterious and ever-present wholeness.
You are in some ways bereft, in your culture. Religion has attempted to provide these reminders, yet so much of religion now encompasses the brutality of separation within the structure of the religion itself that it is hard for comfort to be forthcoming. So, you all — all — attend to the yearning that you have for the joyous mystery that will whisper to you and sing to you, in all your moments of bereavement, that the One is the truth, and only that.
Pamela: A question about — having gone to different countries, I’ve had the experience of meeting strangers at first sight that suddenly strike me as having a strong connection to me — some sort of recognition (although it can happen in New York), which came to make me feel that there are — seem to be — things like soul-groups, in which people meet others in their soul-families; and soul-mates are part of this but it’s more than just a romantic feeling. So I wondered if you would talk about what is actually happening, if there is something —
Micciah: Oh, there — there is!
Pamela: — chemistry-wise, or whatever it is. And — what do we do with it?
Micciah: What you do with it is an individual matter. Some people ignore it; some people write books about it —
Yes, there are soul-families. Just as you are part of a biological family, and just as you choose to bring yourself into the mythology of a particular land, a particular culture, in the appearance of time, so there are also great families. You belong ... to families of magnificent intention. And the intention of the families is ... diverse (is that correct?). They are different, of different natures. And then within those great families there are yet smaller groups, who find each other through the most amazing executions of ingenuity on the part of your guardians and the oversouls. It would make an unbelievable story —
— to trace the complexities of getting you all together.
Those who are sensitive will respond immediately to the signaling. And there are different biochemical attributes in the different families, although (hmm!) there are a number of them in each family. There are somewhat different energetic tunings. You know, the whole body, your brain particularly, is a tuning system; and you respond (if you are sensitive, as we say) to the attuning of a known soul, one of your own family — just as you can attune ... [searches for words] in a jarring way to one who is very different. Then what you do with it and what you make of it is up to you.
The idea of a soul-mate, we would say, is much more like a soul-family: souls who have experienced their long histories together, appearing in different times, in different bodies, in different relationships — as lovers, as family, as adversaries — always reaching toward union and mystery.
Everything in your world reflects relationship. Nothing is given to you to hold forever, and nothing exists alone.
And when great families gather, it creates sound. It creates an inner sound that broadcasts healing and unity and delight to every corner of consciousness.
You can create healing and delight with those not in your soul-families, as well. There is a particular function, however, at one level of development, to the healing power of the UNION of the family. Does that make sense?
Eve: Yes! It certainly does.
Pamela: Do you think you could intuitively go into yourself and find a family sound that, if you began to sing, like a siren, could telegraph out, that would bring that family to you?
Micciah: Yes — you do sing it, in your being, in your natural attuning and your own biochemistry and the — you do sing it. Could you sing it more consciously? Yes.
Pamela: By — [sings] “Brrring!” In—
Micciah: Intuiting it?
The song, so to speak, is disturbed when an entity is, ah — “forced” (we will use the word in quotes) to go against its own nature: one who wishes to be an artist, who is by nature an artist, who in the personality level is not able to reject, let us say, family values and therefore becomes, ah — an insurance salesperson. Never expresses the artistry. Then, if there is damage done to the natural tuning, the song diminishes.
Pamela: So the more you heal yourself the more you will attract your soul-family —
Micciah: [Whisper] Yes... yes...
Pamela: — that would further heal you, and remind you of the union.
Robin: I have a question: also about families. I was wondering if you could tell us something about how the nuclear family as we know it is going to evolve, and what importance — it already seems to be the essential part of our culture, the essential unit — and how it’s going to change, and perhaps how we can change it.
Micciah: It is essentially, ah ... [pause] you may not like this answer.
[Gravely] It is a very violent — potentially, very violent unit. Coming as it does, the nuclear family, out of the consciousness of the Industrial Revolution, isolation — (violence has existed in the human condition however in many, many forms, in tribes as well as in families. We don’t mean to confine it). However: it is a unit of isolation ... and separation.
Because of the way that men’s roles and women’s roles were defined in your culture (and for many thousands of years past, but not always, and not in all cultures); and because of the rapid unfolding of enormous — you say “technological advances,” we would say [with a laugh] “technological difficulties,” the cooking of these factors together has produced violence and difficulty. Isolation of women and their children, isolation of men in the workplace, and so forth.
The nuclear family would be able to flourish within community. Yet you would have to heal the disturbances that have already arisen in its nature, out of its nature.
Children are really tribal animals, with — as mammals, as the particular kind of mammals that you are — an initial allegiance to the mother. There has been a great deal written about the bonding with the mother, but the people who are writing it are also looking through the eyes of their own beliefs. A small baby would bond with its father as well, if its father — or other man or men — were present.
It does have an initial tuning to the vibratory rate of the mother, to the voice, to the smell; but would feel very safe if other people in a close and loving community were introduced quite quickly. A child is happy being passed around. And it is most beneficial in the development of the baby for it to trust a number of different arms and smells and rhythms. It will give the baby a sense of great security in the world. To have one poor baby and only one adult person mostly responsible for it is potentially very frightening, because the loss, if it is suffered (and it was suffered quite chronically in earlier times of your planet), is devastating.
We would hope for greater community. You have a limited amount of land on your planet and many, many people to care for. To live, everyone in separate units, with the duplication of everything — refrigerators, stoves, food, bags, garbage, everything over and over again — does not really serve the planet ecologically. But you have developed in your culture a particular sense of identity through this kind of individuation; and it has served its purpose, as an experiment.
You would be happier, if we may say so, to be able to be beloved by many, touched affectionately by numbers of people. Again, there have been warlike tribes — we are not presenting a Walt Disney version of community: that can go awry as well. But the most peaceful people have been people of a community, with a very strong community sense as well as a sense of individual place in the larger world.
You are going to move toward this, we think, because you will have to. And it will produce ... good results. Ultimately.
The loss of touch! As we said in a just earlier session: in a culture where you “lose touch” literally; when touch is used to control, or to express rank; when touch is sexualized, and there is very little avenue for touch, then you suffer a deep organic loss. And the consequences are grave. And the Other is experienced as threatening and dangerous. Intrusive.
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.
