MICCIAH CHANNEL: JULIE WINTER
Produced by Jon Child
Transcript of Program 167, 1991 [automated CC]
Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1991 where Micciah discusses:
• Our culture’s idea that reality has an “inner” and an “outer.” Reality is a series of events taking place in a field. As we shift to “a larger mode of perceiving,” so does our “concept of what is fixed and what is malleable.” View Section
• Patience, in this and other realms: Not “numb endurance,” but linked to compassion. As consciousness expands and “trust and nonattachment of simultaneous awareness” grow, we develop patient compassion for the relative nature of this dimension. “You are living in a multidimensional reality.” In this realm, patience teaches “blissful surrender ... into the larger forces.” View Section
• How to discern between inner guidance and chattering mind: With practice we become aware of the differences in frequency and in the quality of the information; and we can ask for clarification. 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.
In your manner of conceiving of reality, you conceive of it as having a very distinct “inner” and “outer”; and particularly in this culture, in Western culture, you conceive of a very distinct “inner” and “outer.” And this includes your sense of an inner, private world, a domain that is unknown by others — everything from privacy to secrecy.
You are really living, however — at the subatomic level — in a vast field of movement, that has no linear component, no linear understanding, and no inner and no outer. And as you expand your own capacities to perceive the multidimensional reality; and as you transfer the — the locus, the, um — ah — the power of your decision-making from the personality-self to the soul level, you become increasingly aware, experientially aware, that there is no inner and no outer — that it is a field of activity ... that your beingness is not a solid object but a series of events. [Sigh.]
So, as your consciousness shifts, and you align yourselves ever more deeply with your own spiritual path (whatever it may be), you awaken ... perceptions that encompass timelessness and unity. And when an entity is living very much from this expanded experiential perspective, they are able to ... to know, perceive, identify that which is outside the linear world.
Now, there are also other cultures that have a different understanding, a different conceiving of reality: the Australian people, who live with an understanding of dreamtime — who can trap what has gone “past,” quote, as easily as they can see their fingers and toes; and other cultures where the inner world is given, ah — the stamp of reality, the outer world considered more of the illusion. There too there is a splitting.
When you are in a larger mode of perceiving, then what is seemingly outside melts into your being at one with the totality — and then, where have your enemies gone? All that is happening “out there” is authentically perceived as being a series of events in the field. And this expanded understanding will also shift your concept of what is fixed and what is malleable. So we will stop here and let us have the questions.
Imogen: Okay. Hi, Micciah — I have a question.
Imogen: Ah — sometime in the last year or so you mentioned to us that we come into this realm to — partly to acquire certain virtues, one of them being patience.
Micciah: Ah yes!
Imogen: And my question is: of what — how do we make good use of patience in this realm; and, how do we translate patience into a realm where there is no time?
Micciah: Yes — patience has the implication of process, and process has the implication of time.
When you enter this realm, of duality — a realm wherein the relative world seems so solid, and real — and you then begin to take care of the emotional body, and then to link it with the spiritual body (just a model), you shift the fulcrum of decision-making, power, from the willful understanding of the personality (potentially willful understanding) to the larger arena of the Oversoul. And then, ah — you develop a kind of patient compassion.
We would like to link the two words, and not have you conceive of patience as a sort of numb endurance. You develop patient compassion — with the development of the personality-self, with the cooking through of the seeds that were brought into the incarnation; patience with other people’s process (that is, you move out of the demands of the personality that you, you, or you must be a certain way [thumps the floor], because that is the right and appropriate spiritual, moral, ethical way to be!). You develop a compassionate patience with the relative nature of one aspect of this dimension.
[Pause.] A great teacher does not say to a pupil who is grappling with the process of learning: “Hurry up! Finish it! Do it now!” but is patient with the entire shape of the learning and the effort involved.
As you are able to conceive more and more of timelessnessss ... you are also able to increase — paradoxically — your patient compassion for the unrolling of events within the context of apparent time. Even as you move more into a multidimensional experience, you are increasingly patient and loving toward the relative aspect of consciousness. Does this make sense?
Micciah: And you do live in a world (for instance, in this part of the world) where there are seasons; so you have a love of the dormant, and a love of the fullness of summer, and a love of all the seasons of being of different individuals — even as you live more and more in the trust and nonattachment of simultaneous awareness. We would like you to pay attention to that phrase: simultaneous awareness.
The more you are trapped in the relative world — the more you conceive of the world as being wholly and completely the drama that is enacted in the relative — the more patience is a kind of endurance. The more you live in the relative world alone, as your emblem of consciousness, the more you feel trapped — willful, frustrated, disappointed; exultant [with a laugh] — and the more attachment there is bound to be to the nature of events: what, quote, “happens” — yes?
In other realms, where the organization is different — you see, the organization, the — you are living in a multidimensional reality. You have fixed your antennae to receive particular wavelengths, so you construct reality and it comes out looking a certain way. Yes? You are already living in a multidimensional reality. When you come to work with expanded consciousness then your sense of reality shifts. When you leave your body, when you die, your sense of reality shifts again. Then, you have no need of patience but you have need, ah — [whisper] of, ah ... [aloud] the potency of your own creative force; because in those realms, where there is no “time lag,” quote, creation is instantaneous. Like the creation of a thought-form.
So, we are meaning the word “patience” as a teaching element of this realm ... as a quality that expands to include enormous compassion ... and as a sense of surrender — a completion of the yearning for Spirit that encompasses surrender — where you don’t have any longer to control things. And that is so in many different ways in many dimensions. Is this clear, sort of?
Micciah: [Sigh.] We would like you to be able to consider the quality of patience, to reframe the quality of patience, in the same way that we have asked you to reframe the quality of peace, so patience does not equal endurance — a kind of subordination; and peace is conceived of as a state of creative vitality. Patience can also be conceived of as, ah — a blissful surrender of the controlling aspect of the personality into the larger forces: that’s what we were searching for. All right.
[Sigh.] We believe it says something about patience and long-suffering in the Bible, is that correct? Anyone enough of a Bible scho… — it does not really — metaphysically, it does not mean a kind of permanent martyred stance, but rather, ah — the vitality that comes through surrender. And the compassion towards suffering that develops when you are cognizant of the suffering, working to ameliorate it, and also living in a larger understanding.
Ken: In one of Julie's classes a few weeks ago we were discussing the intuitive center. And one of the questions that came up was — how do we distinguish between inner guidance coming in, and — sort of — the chattering mind, that is talking; because they’re interspersed one with the other, and sometimes they are not easy to separate.
Micciah: Yes.... Well, there is — we say again, there is a sense that you are receiving from outside [laughing]; but — we’ll go back to what we said at the beginning of this session. You need to remind yourselves: you are living in a field that, ah — has apparently solid aspects; but if you were to perceive these through a strong magnification the solidity would disappear into — the field.
In the same way, you organize yourselves, energetically, in terms of the frequencies, to receive — to (there it is again, the inner and the outer) — to be aware of different frequencies. Let us say: the frequency of divine guidance, of great intelligence, of the One Mind, is different from the frequency of the personality-self.
When you enter the stillness, when you are in a spiritual practice, you change your frequencies: you know that. So, you start to be the vastness of All That Is, that personifies itself as [for example] Imogen, in that energy-dance: its frequency starts to change. And then you naturally perceive guidance. It translates as impulses, as pictures, as sounds — because you have to get it some way, in the relative world [with a laugh]. It has to make itself known to you. What you receive, what you perceive, shifts. And as you practice, you become skillful in differentiating between the needs and the desires and, ah — the chat of the personality (sometimes very vociferous chat), and the receiving of that which enhances your love, deepens your compassion, increases your creativity, your faith, your devotion....
And since this one teaches in a very participatory mode, you deliberately seek to fine-tune your skills, and to be able to, ah — (what is the word? Not judge) discern, yes — by the quality of the information — its essence.
When you begin to be attentive to the essence of the communication — what is its purpose? — it usually is clear to you. And you can also ask: “Make this clearer to me! Help me make this clearer to myself, in my larger understanding, in whatever way would be harmonious and appropriate for me.”
Some of it is skill, and — yes! patience [with a laugh], with sorting and experimenting ... dealing with the needs of the personality that may interfere with the larger realms of guidance.
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.
