MICCIAH CHANNEL: JULIE WINTER
Produced by Jon Child
Transcript of Program 139, 1989 & 90 [automated CC]
Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1989 & 90 where Micciah discusses:
• The vibratory climate of signals sent and received from “all parts of the divine web,” both in and out of time, that are “enfolded in the dream of your reality.” View Section
• Children of working parents: it is good for children to be in a loving, harmonious group. The controversy surrounding the issue of surrogate care, and the mother’s frustration, may distress them. View Section
• Expansion toward peace vs. shrinking into catastrophe: The two forces rush toward the “point at which the heart breaks so that Spirit can enter.” It is we who must claim the love of God. View Section
• Why children are the victims: Their innocence arouses our need to “wound as [we] were wounded.” Child abuse is ancient. Mistreatment of the earth reflects the same distortion. Revere the totality: “you reflect Spirit by not rejecting yourself.” 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.
The program that you are about to see is made up of a number of different class sessions.
Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.
Within the expressive arena of your own consciousness, you create a vibratory climate, which both receives signals from all parts of the divine web of creation and also sends signals out, pulsing in a particular pattern that is known everywhere in this web. And these signals both reside within time and are also outside of time. They are enfolded in the dream of your reality; and just as they are known everywhere in this web, so they are known in all time. Everywhere and every time.
Let us have the questions.
JoAnne: Micciah, my question is concerning the — well: given the economical situation in this country now, most families have two working parents, and the children are usually raised from a very early age by some kind of surrogate parent. And — so — I was wondering, what is the effect that that has on the family structure, as well as on the child; what kind of splits does it create in the child?
Micciah: Well — in some ways it is very healthy. The unit of (no: it may be very healthy; it may be also very destructive) — the unit of the nuclear family, with one mother, one father, and one or more children, is [a] very recent historical unit. People have mostly lived in groups, in tribes, in communities, or at least in extended families where there were brothers, sisters, cousins, grandparent — lots of laps and arms to hold children, and also (not to romanticize) lots of disease, lots of difficulties, lots of poverty, many wars.
But the unit, this nuclear unit, is relatively new. And it is very stressful for both parents and children to have this one figure — the mother — responsible, in your sort of group thinking (although it is changing), for ALL the child’s well-being, ALL the child’s developmental health, and so forth.
So sometimes it is suitable for a child to be with other people — with another person, if it is a person gifted in this caring. It is most beneficial for children to have an experience other than their own family, if it is done with love. Unfortunately, it is not necessarily done with love; and then the child is bereft of the holding and nurturing and rocking and stimulation and comforting that is necessary.
It is also true that there is such ambivalence about this that the mother and the surrogate caring person may develop a sharp competitive battle with each other, as the child develops affection for the other person. So, in general it is better for children to be in a community, and if you are fortunate you can choose the community carefully — to have friends hold babies, and its father hold the baby.
Children will bond in a variety of ways. The mother is needed — needed, absolutely; and yet it is a very strong support for a child to be passed around and to touch different people and smell different people and listen to different heartbeats — it’s the way the creaturehood can acclimate in the most security — and then to have a central relationship with the mother and the father. So, it really — the effect of this really will depend on the people involved, on whether there is competition, on whether there is love, on whether there is great economic stress.
The children who were cared for only by their mothers, with the mothers sort of trapped in their homes and the father away in the world, and the mothers until fairly recently quite isolated in terms of their feelings about mothering and about their isolation — those children did not fare very well. They did not have enough touch. And it is unusual for mammals to isolate themselves in little boxes!
It is a very strange condition of your creaturehood. So, community is best, and guided sharing. And it is also well to expose children to animals and to growing things and to music.
The children now whose mothers are working — often out of deep necessity and struggle — will not feel the loss of the mother, as it is the mother’s frustration: perhaps at having to be separated from the child; that, and care which may be very good and may be random which is the difficulty. It is the feelings that the mother has about leaving, about being pressured. Do you understand?
Students: Yes. Yes.
Micciah: It is good to have children in groups — yes? Harmonious — harmonious groups. Even raucous groups. Not hostile groups.
You see: in the very early development you start to set the signals. They come in — entities all come in with their own tuning. Very open, very open to union. The more union, the more the nature of the miraculous quality of life is beamed back at them, the more that will affect their tuning system.
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.
Maxine: I’d like to know more about the relationship between this expansion on one level toward peace, particularly in Eastern Europe, and the contraction into illness that seems very apparent from the latest news from Rumania — especially about AIDS among the children, and the expectations the World Health Organization has of an extraordinary number of people who have been exposed to and are now carrying AIDS throughout Eastern Europe, and the kind of devastation that will wreak on this expansion, at another level contracting around despair and pain.
Micciah: Yes ... they are happening faster and faster together.
Maxine: And what is the relationship?
Micciah: The relationship has to do with the point you are in, in the larger cycle, as you come more and more toward the crest of the wave; and the — this cresting has been — it has been created already by what has — has been set in motion. You come toward the crest of the wave ... you are not there yet. And everything is more intense as it crests. The two forces moving together in a more and more dramatic confrontation, juxtaposition.
There is a point at which the heart breaks, when there is a change of heart: metanoia. There is a point at which the heart breaks so that Spirit can enter. And there is an immense yearning, not only on the part of human creatures but on the part of other creatures who participate with you, who need you to do this. There is a monumental yearning — it is like a vast sound, an inner sound — to break the heart, so that Spirit can enter.
So the juxtaposition, Maxine, is in direct proportion to how strongly your hearts have been held.
There is a — a point at which surrender comes. [Deep breath.] Not to one people, but to thousands of people. And it is necessary that that happen on this planet. And it has taken a confrontation of this magnitude to do it.
It is very difficult to see the love of God through the misery and insanity. And yet there is no one here but you to claim that love.
And your claiming it also has a ripple effect. That is, when your heart opens it is known everywhere. Just as you all can experience, at a cellular level and in dreamtime, the violence — you are besieged by the violence and the pain, not only in the mechanical sense of having it flashed at you through the media, but because you can feel it. You can also feel all the prayers.
So — it rushes together.
Linda: Well, ah — in this context, and — the explanations and pictures you have drawn of our cruelty and our love kind of clashing or not —
Micciah: Yes —
Linda: — not coming together yet with an opening — there’s no release yet, or only partial — why are we so — why are children so often the victims of our cruelty, all over?
Micciah: Because your own innocence has been wounded. Most of you (and you are relatively privileged beings, in some ways) did not grow in an atmosphere that encouraged the love of Spirit, that treated your innocence with tenderness; nor have most creatures (most two-leggeds) grown in such an atmosphere, except in a few isolated cultures. And the reflection of children’s unbearable innocence rouses such pain, unendurable pain, unspeakable pain, because the pain has never been healed or confronted (pain being the Shadow, that in which you have no faith). All of this has been unconfrontable.
When you are face to face with a child’s innocence, the desire for revenge — the uncontrollable desire to wound as you were wounded — is overwhelming.
Abuse of children is nothing new. Again, it has not occurred in some cultures at some times. But children were put out to die, if they were girls. They died in early labors, and still do, in physical laboring. Children have been the recipients of horrible suffering. And now again you see in this very polished mirror — of THIS! NOW! — how it has always been, or for many, many, many years has been. You see it magnified. And it is being talked about. It is unavoidable.
And in some ways there is a context for understanding that it is wrong. When — when it was culturally acceptable, let us say in China, to put the baby daughter in the snow because sons were desirable, it was an acceptable facet of that culture. The growing edge, now, in the life-affirming side, is that it is — it is acknowledged, by many, many people who can speak to each other through instant communication, that this is not right. This is not acceptable.
The capacity to tolerate innocence and trust in another when it has been harmed in you: that capacity has to be developed.
As children who were abused — who were beaten or emotionally abused — grow into adults who tend to recreate that abuse (unless they take themselves in hand psychologically and spiritually, and ask for help), they will mutilate as they were mutilated.
And your treatment of the body of the earth in its innocence is a reflection of that same kind of horrifying distortion — as if the earth, the body, had no feeling, did not exist as an entity, [with] its perfection and its own quality of innocence.
Where there is reverence for the totality (which includes a reverent attitude toward observing your own split and trembling and fearsome and cruel side), then you have healing. Where there is a reverence only for the light, you have a continued split. You must be strong enough to contain it all.
Do you understand this? Not — you don’t — not to revere the violence; but a deep enough reverence for life to include the parts that would otherwise be shunned, because when they are shunned then they are projected and enacted and enacted!
In the same way that Spirit will never reject you, ultimately, you reflect Spirit by not rejecting yourself.
This is so much more complex than what we can say. We wish we could be an orchestra. It is like being one instrument, and hearing an orchestra — trying to express it all at the same time.
We wish you to be able to stay connected to your reverence: to feel the despair, yes; but to remind you that what you can effect, what you — what you can be accountable for, responsible for, is your own continuing growth and contact with what is sacred, and your own willingness to hold it all as sacred.
And as that grows in you, it is communicated even more instantly than television. It is known everywhere! Since time is not really linear, or — creation is not really linear.
[Whisper.] So. [Aloud.] We will leave you with that.
To bless life, with all its complexity and apparent perversity, and to put your hands where you may to make a difference, through your inner choosing, through the work you offer, through your service, through your praying.
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.
