Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1989 where Micciah discusses:
What is a belief and how does it affect what we create? In Eastern Europe, belief in peace reached “critical mass in the luminous world.” Belief is organized energy, with interior sound, magnetism, etc. It surrounds the earth in “vast swirls” from which we “pluck” personal, cultural, planetary threads.

Power of belief re blessing one’s food and choosing insurance: Blessing your food makes “an enormous difference.” Insurance, originally intended to protect, is enmeshed in the cultural belief in blame. Trust in conscious “won’t prevent an accident” but “will affect [how] you receive and ... process it.” View Section

   Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.

   Julie: My Name is Julie Winter, and this program is called Micciah Channel.
   And what you are going to see is me, going into an altered state of consciousness, a non ordinary state of awareness. And what I believe happens when I am in that state 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 this overlapping and the personality is called Micciah.
   My voice is going to change and it is my own voice. The variations in speech have to do with my being in an altered state.
   The program is created from my classes. My students bring questions in. We encourage you to ask questions, to ask questions about channeling, about my channeling, whatever. And use your discernment in evaluating the information that comes through.


   Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends. And we are most pleased to be with you.
   Let us go on to your questions.

   Carol: Micciah, we were also interested in having you talk to us about what what a belief is, and a belief system; and how our beliefs, both individually and as — in group consciousness, affect what we create. We were thinking, for example, about what has occurred recently in Eastern Europe, and what was going on in group consciousness that allowed for those changes to occur.

   Micciah: You are ready! As we have said before: in order for an event to appear in the physical world it must reach critical mass in the luminous world. There must be enough believing in it, enough intention in it, to birth it in the physical realm. And the belief that many, many people have in the necessity for peace, that peace is now a dire necessity, and the many prayers (as well as political negotiations towards peace) burst like a great blossom, a fire of blossoms, in the relinquishing of the Wall and all it symbolizes, and in the very rapid change in Czechoslovakia.
   Now: these changes must be nourished so that they develop apace. And even as they happen, the splitting in your own consciousness appears, so that there is peace in one place and very violent war in another: the drug situation; what was attempted in China but failed (and as we said last year, it teetered on the brink. So much love poured out, so much intentionality; but still enough fear, enough group fear to pull it back into a regressed situation). The violence around drugs — the sales of drugs in the countries; people involved in that.
   So there is a movement toward peace and another very explosive rending action still fueled by fear. Violence is produced by fear.
   What is a belief?
   [Whisper.] Just a moment.
   [Pause. Aloud.] It is an organization of energy that has sound, interior sound; shape (not density in the physical form but in the luminous, in the light world); substance — it’s very hard to describe, because they are physical terms expressing a nonphysical entity. A belief has magnetic properties.
   So it has sound, color (and therefore light), magnetic properties, density in its own realm ... [sharp inhale and exhale]. This is a very complicated question.
   The totality of the planet is itself a belief in the mind and the heart of God, or the gods. And it is permeated (the planet), crisscrossed by, and surrounded by vast swirls of belief, of the believing of love that keeps on recreating the planet in its own shape and nature. So if you could observe Planet Earth through eyes that saw the luminous, you would see swirling patterns, some more dense than others (those are the ones that appear in the physical dimension), others diaphanous.
   Amongst the diaphanous streams or swirls, which also have sound — they are like strings of swirls that have sound, and move — are the core beliefs, if you will, that create the planet and all its creatures. Then within those greater swirls are streams that pertain to human beings. And of those streams (there are millions of them) you pluck, as a culture, certain ones which you weave together, which spin as an energy body that surrounds and breathes and gives birth to a particular culture: group belief.
   Then within those are strings that you pluck or that you attune to which involve smaller groups, and still smaller ones, until you get down to the strings of sound, light, vibration that comprise the beliefs of an individual — some of which are attached to the beliefs of a culture and a nation and — a larger group, a planet, a species. (We have those mixed up. The order is mixed up. You have a human being, a single being, partaking of a family belief, a cultural belief, a species belief, a planetary belief.)
   And: in your dreaming state, in your dreamtime or in your reveries and your meditations, you are able (and through spiritual training as well) to open the floodgates, to receive great strands of planetary belief that are attached directly to the larger source (well, all beliefs are, but these in a more noticeable, magnificent way). So that in spiritual awakening, for instance, the individual strands that have been sung as your believing song are suddenly accompanied by transpersonal beliefs and a sense of oneness.
   Is this clear? Yes?

   Students: Yes. Yes.

   Micciah: All right.


   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 — beliefs have a vibration, and a magnetic resonance. And they attract to themselves conditions and circumstances. Some of these are drawn into manifestation through group believing, through the belief of an entire culture; and all of those within the culture are participating to a greater or lesser extent.
   When you open yourself to the larger realms, to those outside the most individual concerns of the local personality, then everything changes. Literally — your physical structure is altered through the alteration of your beliefs. It isn’t altered in a way that the physical instruments that you have can measure, because those instruments are designed only to have access to a particular kind of structure. When you open to these larger swirls, to the song, the cosmic song, the mystical chant of unity, you change in the most fundamental way; and then the strings of your own beliefs (which have already changed to allow you to perceive in this way) change further. And then what you attract changes — but here is a trick.
   The personality self, the local personality, is most often interested in — what it’s interested in. It’s interested in its comfort, in what is familiar. Sometimes that means being interested in apparently negative conditions, if those feel familiar and “safe.” We are not meaning that anyone deliberately sets out to be miserable, but that what is safe is appealing in the local personality.
   So; when we say conditions change, there can be very harsh conditions which come into the life of someone who is ... awakened to the greater song. What will be different is their perception of the condition. Their experience of the condition will be different from one who is more — ah, narrowly located in the personal, purely personal beam of believing.
   So the personality self imagines: “Ah! I will become spiritually awakened, and the conditions of my life will be a garden.” This is by no means necessarily so! It is the perception of the condition through the vastly enhanced song of being that is alchemized. Not the permanent change of conditions themselves. This is the trickery of oversimplified metaphysical believing — the trickery, that if you change your beliefs you will change your conditions. This is true, to some extent. Then you set up the expectation of the personality: “Ah! It’s all going to be dollars and roses from now on!”


That doesn’t happen — because it is not the way of the world at the moment.


   This is a wonderful question.
   Is that clear? Would you like to ask further about it?

   Carol: It’s clear to me. I don’t know if anyone wants to ask further.

   Micciah: There are those who are in touch in such a direct and immediate way with the vast swirling of believing and enormous compassion and mercy and love that are in the planetary configurations, they are so closely aligned with that, that it can pour through them as faith and as great healing; and it bypasses the individualized personal beliefs. It supersedes them, and can transform the apparent conditions as in the twinkling of an eye. But unless the individual opens herself or himself to the greater One, the change is only temporary. And no one is in charge of your personal believing except you — although you interact with familial beliefs, obviously, and also cultural beliefs. They were woven in at birth — before birth.


   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.


   Ken: This also springs from belief. When I go to the greengrocer’s, I bring my food home and I lay it out on the table and I bless it —

   Micciah: [Whisper.] Good!

   Ken: — and I ask that the pesticides be neutralized and the goodness enter my body, and not the negatives; which again is a belief system.

   Micciah: Yes.

   Ken: I also feel strongly, in terms of our national mania with insurance, that the true insurance against accidents is a trust in consciousness.
   These two particular beliefs are continually undermined by reflections that I get from other people, and as hard as I try to hold onto them I continually question them. Would you reflect on whether consciousness does make a difference and matter, in these two circumstances?

   Micciah: Blessing your food makes an enormous difference. There is a tale of people lost in a boat, after a shipwreck, with only water. There was one among them (we believe it was a Christian Scientist; we’re not sure) who blessed his water — tiny ration of water — every day, until they were found. Whereas the others were consumed by thirst and by fear, this individual was able to hold his belief. The toning of his belief, his access to the greater beliefs of healing and of harmony, of abundance and nourishment, were strong enough that he could stay with it. And at the end of the days he was in perfect health, and the others were very ill.
   Now: there is also a question of appropriateness. You could not appropriately say about a child suffering from starvation: “Well — if they just blessed their food they would be fine, wouldn’t they?” That is totally inappropriate. (That is another issue.) But for you, for those who are in the immediate freedom of doing that, yes. When you bless the food you eat your health will improve.
   We would say, theoretically you can neutralize almost anything, including a deadly poison; but you must be very sure of your power.


   There is the other story (another story) of Ram Dass’s teacher taking lysergic acid — LSD — or some very strong hallucinogen, and — nothing happened.
   So: yes, you have an effect on your food, yes. Is it better to grow it without pesticides? It certainly is. But you have an effect on the character of the food and of your relationship to nourishment when you are blessing it. Try it for three weeks! A money-back guarantee.


   Now as to insurance: as we just said, your consciousness will not prevent an accident from happening, no. It will affect the way you receive the accident and how you process it.
   Insurance is a very curious set of beliefs. It started out in a protective — as a protective, ah — constellation of beliefs, to care for those who were damaged, to have the whole care for the one by everyone paying in a certain amount, yes? But it shifted so it has become enmeshed with the cultural belief that when something is amiss someone ought to pay.


And it has fed into a number of cultural beliefs. One is that one, that “I am not accountable for my care and my well-being.” Truly, things happen and you do require assistance, which was the original idea behind it. Now it is enmeshed in the negative belief [in] the “unaccountable self,” which goes with all of the addictions and so forth that have appeared in a culture which as we say is yearning for — for union, for Spirit.
   It has also become enmeshed in the difficulties of the medical profession — the fact that the costs are crushing, alarming. Punitive costs! So now you have created the odd duck that insurance is actually needed to defray the monstrous costs of medicine, which are more monstrous because of the insurance costs. So it has gone — spun around and around within itself to be a mass of anxieties and “negative” beliefs.
   You could say that your belief in Spirit will protect you. That does not mean you can’t also carry insurance if you wish to, but that you will receive the care that you need using your own judgment on how to proceed in terms of actually purchasing insurance or not.
   So — that will bring us to the end.
   But it — it is important that you make your own decision, and not be browbeaten by someone else saying, “You must do this.”
   We share with you all much energy and much love. And we bid you a very good 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.
