|A WALK WITH MICHEL |
|This transcript is a dialogue between Reid and Michel as they walked through the ruins of an old village in the back woods of what is called the "Haunted Village of Lost Voices". Bara Hack is located in Pomfret, Connecticut, and was abandoned after the Civil War. This conversation took place on one summer's afternoon. The three photos included here were actually taken on that walk and as you can see, offered a few dimensional surprises when they were developed. |
"How do I believe in and maintain my convictions ? So many criticize me for being opinionated or too masculine in my deamenour. How do I handle this ?"
Believing is a process of firmness and constancy. It is the perception of one spiritual thought and truth. It is the realization that mortal thought is that of illusion, of what you think it to be rather than the joyous abundant energy it is. People will usually project onto you that which they: lack, want, or see within themselves... and then some may feel threatened by you. No one said that this would be an easy process. It is easier for them to find fault with you than to look too closely at their own lives. You will have to be true to your gift.
Everything is energy, yes I know, but I struggle with balance... I have always been more soft spoken and gentle, yet at times it seems as if everyone expects me to be more dominant. Being with people is increasingly difficult for me.
Let me answer you this way. There are no assumptions in the process of creationism. Man was put forth in whole upon this planet. He did not come from egg and ovum or earth or woman. In the beginning there was one thought, that of Divine Mind manifested. Every thought is the forebearer of creation for in each thought is that manifestation of action and from this action is the consequence of that thought. 'Adam' is greater than and much more than the first man and being. He is the society of 'Adam', the humanity for and of mankind. He is and was both female and male. He, the 'Adam,' is the direct manifestation of Divine Thought.
No one person is fully in-touch with themselves, they struggle to find balance. They see you as the energy not fully grasping that it is our energy that they are responding to. All they know is what they see, their perspective is locked into the physical and visual. They see you as us, and me, Michel, as you. For us to speak, we need you. For you to learn you need us, Michel.
All that is Divine and of Nature is a process of balance. Even the seasons have balance. Even these have a vibrant presentation and a time for rest. You will find that when energy is balanced there is calm and focus. This is the natural expression of your being - love and harmony.
Sometimes, more times than not, I don't feel very harmonious. I get angry, hurt and I feel alone. I want to be hugged and feel safe. I want to know God and I want to know how to keep these feelings away from me. You know... I am just sooo tired of everyone knowing me when no one does, and of everyone judging me. He's too tall, he's too fat, he's too short, he's this and that... and no one takes the time to know - me.
To try to search for God and Deity is to search for the physical in one's reflection. The image is there but the body is not as spirit is weightless and is of energy. To embrace one's physical self is to embrace God. To forgive one's self is to forgive all others. To understand one's self is to be compassionate to all others.
This is about you, for you are the physical. But, you take in too much. Stand back, don't get so attached, don't become so accessable. Keep it about the work, the message, the teachings.
The light of Divine Mind and God is the light of knowledge. It is of one truth - that through the harmony of Universal Love there is no error, there is no pain, and there is no fear. For in light there is no darkness, in truth there is no lie and in life there is no death.
You miss your soul-mother and think of her often. David, she is with you more than you know. Remember that Maria saw her behind you, and Maria had never met you, nor your soul-mother. When Jean passed you were left - alone. All that is gone is her physical self. She is well and whole and with you more than you know. Think of soft words and that which soothes and heals. Music, poems and life all have a rhythm and light that transforms and lifts the self into a place of weightless perfection. The words of Divine Mind are sweet, like nectar from the ripened vine bearing fruit. They soothe the worn soul and make whole the broken half. In midnight's amber glow there is only the relaxing sound of stars sleeping.
Without bitter herbs there would be no taste for the pleasing for after night and rest there is always the warmth of day. Divine Mind and Universal Awareness reflect calm, health, wholeness and infinite life. Love heals all and Divine Mind is all. You are The Truth, Long Life and Unlimited Love of the universe's unlimited abundancy reflected in body, mind and soul.
So, in this I will tell you that the process is about putting light around everything. Just everything. Call in and upon the universe and its entities of light and well being to fill each part of your life and day. For in and from this you will learn only positive affirmations. From each experience you can learn and find a positive lesson. It is about Christ Energy and the purity of the channel and allowing, tolerance and patience. Guiding with a gentle hand, yet firm enough to keep the word at the forefront of thought.
Why? So you can grow in wisdom and compassion? So you can accept yourself and others? Hummm, so you can learn to let go and just be an expression of purity? And then... what about those closest to you, the one's you think are your friends who can turn on you because you're not what they want you be? Or because you have a human side and they wanted to be near you so they could live out their dream and desires while you do all the work? And what about the times they didn't like what you said? Humm, what about those times? Sometimes I get real tired of being nice, just so I can get slugged, lied about and manipulated. Real good. But what choice do I have?
You, especially you, always have a choice. Right now you are doing work and searching. You are still healing. But let me warn you about your tone. You choose to continue these relationships. It feeds your ego. Then when it suits you and only then do you decide to change the dynamics of the relationship and interaction. You should deal with these things as soon as you touch on the knowing immediately. You are getting better, and I do understand. At times you reason like a child. But, do not ramble and test me.
Do not be boastful and do not be judgmental, least yea will be judged. For as you do to the smallest, I will feel the greatest. For as your utter a thought of disregard for another, I will hear their pain. You should always strive to serve your higher self for in healing yourself you can give of yourself to another. If you are judgmental, where will you be at that point? At the same point, with no growth, only damaging yourself further and deeper. You do this to yourself. I do not do this to you. Listen to my words and keep their simple values about yourself. For in being judgmental you pull and gather other judgmental people around you, do you not?
Place you thoughts in the light. There is only blessing and unlimited love in the light. All experiences are learning experiences. They are had and then you simply move on to new experiences in that new moment in your time. For each man is connected to the society of man. He is truly his brother. He is the hope and dream of every other man. All humanity is connected to all humanity. Support each other and be kind. Love each other and trust. Trust each other and allow yourself to receive another's love. Remember all enegy, all energy, returns to its origins.
No more questions. Walk and listen. Feel the ground under your feet. This is important, to walk on the land and feel its energy. Listen to all that nature is saying. David, stop thinking and accept. Remember what Abner has told you and everyone, "God, Goddess, All That Is." We would say, "God gave us all that is, was and will be." You always liked David Burgess and his non-physical Abner and I could sense your interest in his ability and in his channel. His nature is gentle, and gentleness has always interested you.
David, remember this. Nothing will be as important as this, so take it to heart. It is not about being judgmental and being limited. Each person has the right to determine his own reality and the lessons derived from the specific needs the energy sets forth. Each person, each individual has the right, the right, to their own learning lessons. Do not interfere with another person's learning experience.
It is best to say, "I see about you the energy of an event or situation that you are struggling with and are at resistance with". Place this energy in the light. Bless it and release it. Life is not designed to be lived with fear, anger or pain, and especially not with anxiety. Allow yourself to move into that emotion. Do not react to it. Do not feed into it emotionally. Let it fill you and sense it so you can recognize the sensation. Understand it, then pull it up and into your heart.
Fill yourself with warmth and love. Open your heart and release those sensations and know they were places that the light was not reaching. Once in the light they fade into nothingness.
Okay, wait. I have a question. Sometimes I hear you and the knowledge flows into my mind and it's all clear. I look at the person and as David start to talk with them and I can see they aren't getting it. You know, they're not hearing it. They wanted to know, they asked, but then they look blankly at you. Come on, explain to me why? I mean, why do people seemingly want help and then they don't listen, don't take it or don't even heed it?
Some people can't hear. Some people refuse to hear. Some people only look for the information they want. Rather simple... isn't it. It truly isn't complicated. You want them to hear... but, they can't. Their coming is an attempt to hear, and slowly, very slowly, with time and over time, they may begin to hear... but they will fault you before they ever admit to themselves that it is their ego preventing them from hearing.
So eager, I knew you couldn't listen much longer without a question. But this is good. People want to know that they are not bad, that they have not been wrong in their decision making and that they really do the right thing. However, you and I know this is not often the case. It is not up to us under any circumstance to prove or validate their reality. It is not up to us to validate our ability or accuracy to them. You must remember it is about energy. Simply energy.
When you tell someone their truth, it is your interpretation of that truth from what you are gleaning from their energy field. You are not in channel at that moment and you are simply pulling from existing energy. What you are getting is their energy at that moment in time. These dynamics are just that - dynamic and changing. By doing this you either interrupt their natural path of learning and discovery or you meet resistance as they can not comprehend nor appreciate the gift you are sharing with them. You must not interfere with their life journey, for while on this journey they are scribing their Life Review. They will not appreciate the insights you give them. They want the quick fix, the easy resolve, and they don't want the responsibility that comes with their own decision making arrived at by their own free will.
It is difficult to be of spirit and perfection when you have a body that expresses itself though emotion and tactile senses. The process of balance and focus is fundamental to your success. The physical self and mortal mind expressing want, the spiritual self and Divine Mind expressing need. Align them so they can begin to understand that the universe resonates with them and responds to their vibrations. Life is designed to be easy and to flow. When you have a thought it is put into action. That vibration resonates with its familiar components to supply the affirmation or like energy to you. It is about the energy.
Most people want to blend. They want to be accepted and not have their way of thinking challenged. People need love and reassurance. Families are fragmented and people are searching. Give them genuine concern and love. We often times get caught up in the visual or the drama and intensity of the moment. We can not gauge and judge these things, nor react to them, for we do not know why these energies or entities have come together. Usually it is to work out and resolve past issues of past lives or ongoing issues of conflict, and also to increase the sense of spirituality and bring closure in accordance with the needs of those energies at that moment in time. It is about filling that small dark corner we stuff and hide within with light and love. It is about filling your energy field with forgiveness, understanding and compassion. Be tender with yourselves and love yourselves for if you cannot extend these things to yourself, how will you ever expect others to extend these things to you?
Not too long ago, when we were in Ithaca, we were put in an a place of dis-ease. The human side of you allowed this to happen as you needed to learn to release and not judge. By releasing you learned that you could fill that part of woundedness within yourself with light and have compassion for the one who hurt you and the 'work'. This was an important time for you in your evolution. Of your own design and in your own time, you came to see the purpose of that person's energy interacting with yours which was to draw from you, isolate you and have that part of yourself for themselves which they coveted. Finally you came to the place where you could not endure sharing that energy and you released that person, separated and moved back into your own place to heal and become whole. Your process of becoming whole was taking the time you needed to fill your being with the light of Divine Mind and project light around the person who, out of their own need, set this into motion. You could not have learned to release and bless if you had not gone through this.
When you were in the light I came to you and have stayed with you as I always will. Just as you now have the affirmation that all of your friends have returned, as what was, will always be, when it comes from the heart. You have had affirmation after affirmation and the bounty of the universe continues. Once, as you say, "you got off the pity pot " and stopped saying "what did I do to deserve this? I was only kind to her?" you began to learn that the focus was on what you were about. Your past-based perceptions came from the unresolved wounds within and what you were doing and what you were feeling. It was not about the energy. Once you focused on the energy and the compassion for this other person, you were able to understand that sharing in that energy was not healthy for you and was of discomfort. But you knew there was this discomfort for a long time. You had a sense of dis-ease with this person for the past 5 months yet you continued to say, "It must be me. I must not be trying hard enough." I think this says it all, does it not? So it got harder, so you could try harder and the resistance got greater, and their need to control and have power got greater. Everything could have been adverted, had you listened to yourself 5 months ago. You knew you did not listen. This is what your intuition is for. I am with you always and yet you falter from time to time with your mortal thought. Ah, the paradox. Finally.
Do not grow impatient. Sit here with me and feel what I say to you. You need to get out of your own way.
This is no one's fault. You needed to learn this lesson. The lesson of light and dark and that only you can step aside when you have finally learned to love and release. And you finally have. For so long this was the difficult step for you. So, this has been the greatest gift. Keep your foundation in the light. Keep yourself pure and honest. What others say and do are part of their belief system, and this is okay. It only impacts when you share a belief in thought. If it is disharmonious, release it and continue your journey. I did not interfere untill near the end when it was my time to step in and all I said to you was "Allow yourself to love yourself and release this energy from you."
It is hard to watch those you love learn. Understanding is struggled with. Ithaca has served you well as you are becoming more of a reasonable man. Recall the question of one younger woman when she asked about children. The child who is miscarried is not mis-carried, but rather leaves due to a mutual decision arrived at by these energies. This brief union is a way of working through issues of spirituality and closure. They decided to come together to strengthen the two selves in wisdom, increase a sense of spirituality and bring together energies from the past which needed tender closing. Perhaps the energy of the child needed to be placed in an environment where it could be safe, loved and healed and then released and move on. Perhaps the mother needed to be cared for and protected, and needed to come to a deeper sense of spirituality. Their union is now and forever in their energy fields and the energy of the child will always be at one with the mother as her guide and teacher.
What threw you were the mirrors and energy that you were feeling from the other with whom you had not yet separated. And this was compounded by the pain of this young woman. Skepticism and validation come from those most injured, those who have been wounded, hurt and taken advantage of. They often feel that life has been unfair to them and they have not been given the love they need. To soften their pain you must hold them in the light. Reach into their soft spot where they are vulnerable and let them know they are safe. Let the love you have within fill their being. Allow healing to occur by showing them that they can trust. They must learn to trust someone and by you having their best intentions at heart they will let you in. Then you can exchange energy with them. Looking for love, that is all they are doing. Trust and love. Assurance and tenderness.
This is the difference between the Christ and the Anti-Christ. You think of the Bonnie and trust her, as much as you are willing to. You look to her and are fascinated by Matthew. There is a reason for this. Your energies are connected and resonate well together in a pure form of understanding and communication. Outsiders will not understand this but their perceptions do not matter. This is for the best. Only good will come from this. This is the reason we went to the meeting. Energies will always be made whole. The Bonnie shared this with you. Christ is light and the Anti-Christ, ego. Let light and wisdom be your guide. Always move into a place of simplicity and feel its wholeness. How true this is.
When you make a decision and have a thought, the universe responds and this becomes an action wherein you are starting the process of creation. When you have a warning light, David, are you listening? When flags and what you call your 'bell of truth' go off, listen. Put your mortal and emotional thought into that which you want and turn your attention away from that which you don't want.
Do not concern yourself with what others think of you. When you remove yourself from your shared interaction you are pro-active in controlling your own thoughts and outcomes.
Most individuals are not in control of their own life and experiences. They are influenced by that which surrounds them and what 'others' strive to obtain, reflecting material status and success. This is a trap which many get caught up in. The intensity of emotions suppress the focus of calm. Once you remove yourself from the intensity or non-aligned energies, you regain you own direction and momentum. Momentum is naturally occurring and each individual has their own pace of learning and discovery. Once in your own space you can manifest and create from a positive foundation.
Then there is 'the Sharon and Randoso' light-beings, 'the Debi and Jim' of the earth and kindness, 'the Hedi and Hank' and yes, even 'the Amy', 'the Don and Barbara', 'the Lee', who affirms the positive, tender and loving side of friendship. They are your teachers. Most will leave, they will pass into Spirit... yes, some suddenly, some by their own fate, and some due to agedness. Then there is one who you hold closest, always have, and never speak of... it is the same for the other. Both, too young, too different, and too unaware. Somethings you never get over, not even with time... this is the scar on your heart. The universe and unconditional love have been and always will be abundant for you.
In time David it is you own body that will give out... it will just, stop. This is how it is. Life is an ongoing journey, it is hallmarked with good and bad moments. There are truths, but the greatest truths are the one's you choose to believe, because you make them real.
All of these people and their energies have been strongly supportive and with you the whole journey. Through prayer and love, they have held a place for you in their heart and prayed when you have not even been aware of it. Being yourself is the most natural way to be. It is the purest expression and the most well-serving. It brings honor and respect to yourself and to the others who share a sense of communion with you. For in truth, each man is his brother's keeper. Let the accordance of your faith be seen in his reflection.
David, there is a power in words. This power is great. It is the perception each individual has applied through their own reference points and life experiences. Once you hear a word, or words, and listen to conversations wherein others have strung and riddled, you and others can be overpowered by their intensity. When these words do not serve your higher self they do not vibrate well within and they lower your vibrational level. If you listen to harshness and 'gossip', you are participating in this interaction through thought. You are setting these thoughts into action by giving them life through your energy. Step aside from these words and interactions. If they do not serve your higher self then release them and those that bring them to you.
The process of well-being and creating is based in harmony. The intentions of your own thoughts become manifestations and reactions, which, in turn, become deeds which, in turn, become part of your 'life history' or, if you will, 'life review'. Your life review is ongoing and changing from moment to moment.
Do not compare yourself to others. There is no positive value or benefit in this - that of comparing material affirmations. This is putting your attention on that which you do not want rather that which would serve you well and as such, be of positive affirmation. Focus on the perfection and uniqueness that makes you yourself and know this is of God and the Universe. Focus on yourself in your here and know and affirm your daily blessings. Comparisons are thoughts which focus energy on something being better than something else, implying that something is inferior. In Divine Mind all is of perfection, as all serves its purpose in and of its own time and design.
Hummm, so all I have to do is allow. Simply allow and find the sensation of the place of truth within myself and come from that spot?
Yes, any and all interactions you share are special forms of expression between two people. Put your faith down and stand upon it. Always respect this and always, always, come from your heart.
Allow yourself the weightless wholeness that is infinite, eternal and of the perfection of light. Focus on the joy of creating and the beauty within. Focus on the positive and the universe's abundancy for there is always more - more love, more beauty, more light and more knowledge. The universe, all that is of its energy, is infinite. You are designed for positive affirmation of unlimited success in life. We have discussed much during this walk. Look at it closely and go beyond the words to the feeling within them. We are on a good path. Be at peace and feel calm for all is restored and made whole.
Return to the soil that you were seeded within and take strength. Go... breathe, teach, and return to that which gave you us, Michel.
Remember all energy returns to its source.
