Transcript of Program 174, 1992

Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1992 where Micciah discusses:
The domains of consciousness, and authentic responsibility. To understand consciousness better, regard the domains; inquire into their natures and rulerships. When the personality-self tries to control what is beyond its domain, it creates a situation of inauthentic responsibility. View Section
Resistance:: Ask, From what domain does this resistance draw its life-energy? Some resistance is protective, urges caution, or speaks for our soul’s purpose; some is outworn habit. As resistances melt we approach authentic responsibility — perceiving ourselves as Source. 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 do the same. 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.  And we wish to speak, at the outset, about the various domains of consciousness, and also about authentic responsibility.
   Consciousness — the vast One — is totally aware of itself.  The infinite is conscious of its own creations.  And one way to understand the totality of consciousness more fully is to perceive the various domains, and to inquire: What is the characteristic of this or that domain?  What is its deed, intention, or inner purpose, or essence?  And what rules it, so to speak?  What is ... [sigh] overseeing — we use the word rule purposely.  We could say overseeing, but to ask, What is the ruler of this domain? is more pointed, and really closer to what we are intending to convey.
   When you are confused about the rulership, the true power, of a particular domain, then you create a situation of inauthentic responsibility.  You know there is all of this talk about the co-created reality: “You create your reality.”  And then, mixed in with all the talk, is all of the misunderstanding, all of the cruelty, all of the guilt-tripping, et cetera. 
   How to make one’s way through this morass?  We will give you an example. 
   The personality-self — while very creative, and capable of great inspiration and hard work and love — is still by definition a limited domain: the domain of the personality that says, “This is who I am; this body, these hands, this mind.  Only what I observe will I trust, and my observations will be limited by the domain of consciousness of my tribe.”
   When the personality-self, then, attempts to affect or control what is truly outside of its domain, it moves toward inauthentic responsibility; responsibility for that, or over something that — where there is no genuine control.  (Control in the positive sense.) 
   The personality aligns itself with its personal feelings, fears, expectations, desires — and moves from those as the ground of being.  So the personality says, “I am afraid of losing my job.  Economic conditions are poor.  I see that out there, there are newcomers in my job market.  They are underselling me; they are taking the jobs.  I must focus my attention on getting rid of these people, on legislating them out of my workplace,” and so forth.  Personality’s view is limited to its experience as a distinct and — in this culture — somewhat isolated entity.
   But supposing you are living with a personality that has opened itself to other domains — to the guidance and wisdom of its dreams, in dreamtime; to the voice, the still small voice, that comes in meditation; to the angelic realms; to the wisdom and enduring love and knowledge of its own soul?  Then, there is a conduit — many, many conduits! — there are many conduits open. 
   So, when the personality-self desires change, first of all the domain out of which the desire arises can be regarded.  “Out of what does this desire come?  Is this to further my soul’s experience?  Is it a personal need?”  There is nothing wrong with personal needs — but to assess what domain of consciousness is represented by a particular desire to change. 
   And then: “Through what can it be supported?”  The personality alone, in the way that we are using these terms, is quite limited.  When it invokes the wisdom of the soul, of dreamtime, of the other realms, of meditation, then the confining skin of isolation and separation from Spirit — that skin becomes permeable to great wisdom.  The domains available are awakened and called into creative play, and the locus of responsibility changes.  The, ah — personality shifts over into invoking one or a number of domains; says, “This I cannot do!  I cannot create such-and-such.  I invoke the Higher, Wider, Deeper.”  Then the limiting beliefs of the personality, as a domain, begin to mercifully dissolve, and the greater good, the good of the community, the good of the development of the entire self, Good in the larger sense — let us say, enhanced aliveness! — this starts to be the motivating factor.  Do you understand?

   Students:  Um-hm.

   Micciah:  All of this is connected with change.  We were speaking the other night about the domains, the different domains of consciousness, and we wanted to continue with that theme.  The domain of the miraculous. 
   And, if you think of it in this way, with this model, then the domains encompass different beliefs — the personality beliefs being quite limited, the other ones being increasingly less limited as you go more and more into REALIZING yourself as Source, or Essence, or the functioning, unfolding, of the One.
   Alright.  Let’s have the questions!

   Marion:  Micciah, what you’ve told me now shifts my question a bit.  I was going to ask about, if change is inevitable, why do we resist it so —

   Micciah:  That is why!

   Marion:  — but now I’m wondering, What domain does this resistance come from?

   Micciah:  So, that is a very fruitful line of question.  Not a mere intellectual exercise, but trying to establish: What is the origin?  Where is this resistance living?  From what does it draw its life-energy?  Resistance, as you are well aware, has its own life-energy, yes?  Sometimes a very, ah — tenacious and persistent life-energy! 
   So, you question yourself.  “From what domain does this resistance draw its life-energy?  What is its communication to me?  Is it a fear on the part of the personality-self, of giving up its illusion of control?  Is it a knowledge of some aspect of the larger self, saying, ’Be cautious’?  Is it, ah ... from an experience of the long history of multiple awareness, many lives?”
   So, yes.  Ask first — with regard to change, to transformation, when you meet resistance — What is the nature of this resistance?
   [Whisper.]  Good question.  [Aloud.]  Please go on.

   Warren:  Well, in working with transformation and change and resistance lately, I’ve actually started to love some of them (not all of them!), and I’m realizing how they have actually attempted to support and protect parts of myself that needed, and still do need, some of their protection and support.  And — it’s taken the bad rap, in some sense, off of resistance, which it often gets.

   Micciah:  Yes — !

   Warren:  And — you’ve talked a little bit about — I think you’ve addressed it somewhat, but I’d ask you to comment further on how the resistances are actually loving, supporting, or holding stations for transformation.

   Micciah:  So, resistance by itself — we do not have a judgment: “It is good; oh, that is very good; oh, that is very bad.”  You must explore the quality of the communication, and try to establish its origin. 
   In working with healing in the emotional body, which contains not only memories of this lifetime but of your composite lifetimes, you may encounter a resistance that is really saying to you, “Tch-tch-tch!  Ta-ta-ta, you are going too fast!”  We know — you love, in this culture, for everything to be fast.  Instant!  This is a good advertising word, yes?  No one advertises with the notion of “Slooow!”
   ”Looonnng attention-spaaan necessary [drawling] for this processs!”  [Laughing.]
   But when you are dealing with emotional wounding, with ... deep bruising, and a compound experience of fear, one’s resistance about moving to a certain place, so to speak, emotionally, may indeed be protective and, ah — support the appropriate unfolding of that healing, the way a wound in the flesh must heal from the bottom up.  If it simply seals over the surface, then it does not heal so quickly, or so well.  It’s really slower in the long run.
   So you may encounter this kind of resistance.  It may be that the personality-self has been told, by parents, by the community: “It would be a very good idea if you were a — doctor.”  And you find you resist it and resist it.  It is a good idea, but it is not your true creative nature, and it is not in the best interests of the opening into your soul-pattern — into your bliss, if you will — for you to pursue medicine.  And so you resist that path.
   You could resist by failing in your studies; you could resist by having accidents all the time; you could resist by having colitis; you could resist by — becoming deeply enamored of rock music.
   You could resist in many, many ways.  Then, if you ask the question, What is the nature of this resistance and from what domain does it arise?  What is its quality? you would lead yourself to a set of clues.  You could ask your dream-self to tell you: “Hm!  Why am I resisting this pursuit of medicine — such a culturally approved profession?”  You would find out more about it.
   Hmm —

   Warren:  Is the resistance a domain — could you say it’s one of those domains; it’s a form of consciousness, it’s a domain of consciousness — ?

   Micciah:  Mmmmmmm —

   Warren:  Or is it — ?

   Micciah:  — mmmm, no; it is more that it — it can arise in many of the domains. 
   And if you collapse or melt one set of resistances, you will get yourself (hmm — if they are ready to go) into a situation in consciousness where you come closer and closer to being authentically responsible, which means you perceive of yourself as a living entity, composed of many domains, who is essentially ... Source.  The One. 
   [Whisper.]  Just a moment.
   [Pause.  Aloud.]  Do you understand?
   Ask further.  Warren — is that clear?

   Warren [laughing]:  I think so.  It’s —

   Micciah:  All right.
   When you inquire about a resistance — asking of many, or looking in many domains, asking assistance — you discover its nature.  Some of it is just old business!  You could just as well put it — put down the bag.  You don’t need it; it’s really not protective.  It’s habit, in the non-life-affirming sense.  It’s custom; it’s what you were taught.  It doesn’t matter any more. 
   Some of it is very precious and protective.  So you see, it is not all one thing.  You have to establish where it’s coming from.
   You resist how extraordinary life is.


   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. So long.
