MICCIAH CHANNEL: JULIE WINTER
Produced by Jon Child
Transcript of Program 135, 1990 [automated CC]
Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1989 where Micciah discusses:
• The Prayer Basket View Section
• Reincarnational links between humans and animals: “You do not become a horse.” Each form of creaturehood has its own angelic realm; all partake of one another through resonating filaments of interconnection. Humans may choose to protect and honor life, or not. View Section
• Can we join consciousness with other species to heal the planet? YES. The ring of guardians that protects the planet comprises “all manner of consciousness”: plant and mineral devas, humans, dolphins and other animals. Through meditation, dream, and action, we can attune to them, learn from them, and give back to them. 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.
Julie: [holding prayer basket and demonstrating] This is a prayer basket. These are prayers, affirmations, wishes, intentions. And what we do in healing class, in our circle, is write prayer slips for ourselves and for other people for whom we would like to offer affirmations of love and wholeness, as well as for the planet.
And we would like to include you who watch on television in the healing activities of this group. Then I lay hands on the prayer basket. [to the class] We could all lay hands on the prayer basket at the end.
We would like you to send in your prayer slips and make a big prayer basket so that we who are linked in this relatively abstract way of video can be linked as a circle, as a web of prayers and affirmations for peace and harmony.
Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.
Now — what are your questions?
Linda: We’re going to begin with a question about reincarnation. I was curious if the human spirit chose to reincarnate in other forms, in other species. Do we go in and out of animal lifetimes, for instance, and human lifetimes? Is that a link of consciousness, for instance, between animals and humans?
Micciah: [Whisper] Yes.... [Aloud, amid laughter of students] You think Mordecai the cat would be so foolish as to relinquish his perfect experience of divinity and fall into the dualistic world? Not by a long shot!
We are joking.
This is a wonderful question. It has been debated back and forth through the various mystery schools.
We do not believe that there is evolution in the sense that Darwin hypothesized it; although there are, obviously, lines of appearing and disappearing of various animal forms in the physical world. Nor do we feel that humans become, or ever were, cats or horses or cockroaches (although we can think of a few humans who certainly behave like cockroaches. Perhaps that is unfair to cockroaches).
However! Since you are living in entwined consciousness you have your feet connected with various aspects of the animal world, the mineral world, the verdant world of trees, grasses, flowers. Each apparent form — the form of Maxine or of Jill or of Linda, the form of human creaturehood — has its own, ah — hmmm — domain, shall we say, of expression, its own angelic realm, its own connection to the purpose of divinity. So in the breath of the eternal Now, with its multiple forms appearing in what you experience as time, you express human creaturehood as one aspect of consciousness, and, ah — duckling creaturehood as another aspect of consciousness.
Although you partake, through filaments of connection and resonances of connection, with all the domains, so the experiences of animals in their creaturehood as they grow and as they suffer, as they delight in their wings, in their teeth, in their diving and swimming, is also in you. And those who are awakened — those whose living awareness embraces the mystery of the One — know this, and therefore protect life, knowing its oneness: there is no “Other.”
When the trees are torn out of the ground, leveled, chewed up to make your reading material, you can feel the divinity of the trees being mauled — within your own being. And also at the same time — at the very moment they are being destroyed and you can feel it, you can dream it — still the inner world history of the trees, the angelic Tree-ness, its essence or interior form in consciousness, is never harmed.
But the outer world, in its duality, is your place of losing oneness and regaining it. Do you understand? Is this clear? Yes?
You are given, as a possibility, the choice to protect life — or not; the choice to find and honor your connection with all of life — the divinity of the trees and water, and pussycats, and ducklings — or not. And that DANCE — [four loud, slow handclaps] — appears in what you experience as the concrete world.
So — you do not cross, or you do not merge. You will not become a horse. Yet you are intimately connected. You are — you ARE — the living consciousness of all things, appearing in the form of creaturehood — HUMAN creaturehood, with ITS dilemmas.
And when we say “protect life,” we would like to make something clear. You have noticed that nothing is permanent in the dualistic world — yes? — nothing, except Spirit; but in the — in the world of duality. And in some forms of life it is necessary to eat other forms of life. That is within the natural play of the One. And it is not ... useful to sentimentalize that process. It is sometimes bloody; it involves destruction. [Pause] But only in human creaturehood can the decision be made to destroy in the particular way that you do. And it is part of your own learning, it is part of the dilemma of this particular element of creaturehood.
Mordecai the cat, dancing with a mouse as lunch, is in the dance of separateness that is inherent in the physical world. It — you may wish to rescue the mouse (much to Mordecai’s dismay), but they are not violating anything.
[Sigh] This is a complicated question. Let us go on.
Donna Well, ah — this is really in the same vein, so I don’t think you’re off the hook yet.
I’d like to ask a question about joining consciousness with animals, and also plants and minerals —
Micciah: [Whisper] Yes!
Donna — to come together to heal the planet —
Micciah: [Whisper] Yes!
Donna — and maybe particularly talk about the dolphins, as well, which I’ve got a feeling have knowledge that could help us.
Micciah: Yes! Yes — as we have said before, there is what we call the ring of guardians that protect this planet. And this ring is composed of all manner of consciousness: that which has never incarnated in the earth realm, as well as — shall we say — representatives of the many aspects of the earth. The devas — the angels of the trees, of the minerals; the dreaming aspects of some human creatures who have participated for eternity in the guardianship of this planet (some of them are also in physical bodies); the animals and their counsel; and, very prominently, the dolphins.
The dolphins represent the living capacity to choose the celebration of cooperation and protectiveness. They are wise beyond what you imagine. They are connected with the guardian consciousnesses of other star realms, as are some of you. And they are always beaming (in both senses), signaling, a living possibility of union and cooperation. Out of their very beings they guard you and they guide you.
Now you have asked a very interesting question: Can you join — consciously, through choosing to do so — with the animals, the trees, the minerals? YES! We would suggest it as a meditation for all of you — for any of you who are watching — to attune, for instance, to the awareness of trees.
Trees support your planet: you could not be alive in this realm without trees — literally. To explore the filament or resonance of You with all of Tree-ness, to ask for its teaching, and give it your love. To ask how you may honor it, care for it, and express that dimension of consciousness which knows itself as Trees through you. And you can do this with rocks, with animals. The Native American people as well as other people have allies, animal teachers. You can join with a particular facet — face — of animal consciousness and be guided by it and give back to it.
You must remember the giving back. You can be guided by the wolves, and also give back — it goes both ways. You can ask to attune to this signal, this beaming pulsation of the dolphins, and also give back.
You are in the thinking, in the imagining as a culture, that creaturehood other than the human variety is lesser; and this is promoted, we think, in the Bible, though perhaps that was not what was intended. All of life is brother and sister, father and mother to you.
Does that answer the question, or respond satisfactorily? Would you like to ask more?
Donna So you’re saying basically it’s through meditation?
Micciah: Well — through meditation, through dreaming, through your actions in the world — no, no; not only meditation. But the original connection or sensing — attuning — can easily be made through meditation. The meditation can be to go and be in the woods. It doesn’t have to be THIS kind of meditation. But — a meditative and receptive consciousness to the teaching or the attuning.
Jill: Is that the giving back?
Micciah: No, [laughing] that is a joining, and in joining there is a reciprocity, a potential reciprocity. But you are not only being guided by the trees: they are partaking of your wisdom as well. “What can I offer you back?” And you can offer, in your actions; “I will care for a tree. I will feed it.” Or, “I will care for all trees by not destroying them wantonly.” That is giving back.
[More slowly; drawn out] And all the realms have sound, interior sound ... they have a story ... they have a purpose.
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.
