Pre-Election October 2004

Transcript of a channeling Pre-Election, 2004. This channeling followed a facilitated group session where about 60 participants tuned in to the soul of the United States.

From our friends in Spirit:

Hello. We would like to add our gratitude for your participation this evening. With your willingness and choice to be present and listen, you have made a connection with the soul of a being that you live with all the time, but whose spokespersons are often not coming from a place of listening or awareness. What would it feel like to you to live in a home, and have people speak for you all of the time, without representing your nature? What would that feel like?

[participants: discordant…frustrating…painful…dishonoring…inaccurate].

After awhile, there is a buildup of frustration, a sense of how to become more visible. To be heard, to be sought, to be honored, and to begin to represent the self in a different way.

In this particular time, you in the United States are on a cusp or precipice. It is as if there is a moment……not just a second, but a moment……of time. And this moment is precipitating either the United States as a being beginning to step forward as itself, standing up and being recognized, honored, heard, and represented more clearly…….or the frustration will build, and it, too, will erupt. Rather than stepping forward with conscious connection, there will be disruption in the fabric of your experiences together. When frustration erupts without a space being created for it, what happens? In your own experience, what happens when frustration erupts?

[participants: chaos, breaking apart, disharmony, rage, implosion and explosion, destruction].

Destruction, yes, and sometimes violence. Breakdowns in order to break through, and sometimes that can be painful. It can be violent, and it can be disruptive.

You are on a precipice, this collective that you belong to right now. And yet, by creating a space such as you have done tonight, you have created a space for this being to be heard, have you not? That opens a portal, a door. If you are heard, even by one person, does it not make a difference? It does, does it not? Your heart feels as if ah, someone sees me, someone knows me. Someone is willing to listen to me, to who I am, to what I feel. You in this group, both present and listening (by phone), have created such a space. A prompting enabled this gathering to take place, and that too was heard. It was listened to, and there was a response to organize this event. That is creating a space.

You have been making lists in your groups. What we would like you to do right now for us, and for the soul that you have been listening to, is to bring them up to the front of the room and place them underneath the table where the grid is. Everything that you heard and wrote, whether you reported it in your group or not, just bring up what was written. This creates an acknowledgment in one place of all that was heard…….

[participants walk to front of room].

Thank you. Now we would like you to open your hearts as you were before, listening and consciously connecting to the soul of this one that is longing for space and invitation to step forward. Allow your heart to connect to the larger heart that is this nation’s heart. In your heart, be a spokesperson on behalf of not just yourself, but others, whether you have knowledge of these people or know them or not. If you can, say to the soul of this nation that you are willing to listen, that you are willing to receive and represent clearly. Speak for yourselves, and speak on behalf of others now, as the representatives or ambassadors of the collective, of the humanity that is connected to this time, this juncture, this precipice, this moment. And breathe willingness, so that this soul, this being, begins to feel that the opportunity is being given to step forward, to make more clear in the collective its essence, its feelings, its truths, its reasons for being, its purpose.

We would like to invite you to visualize this being for a moment. Visualize this being stepping forward and being seen. We would like you to use your beautiful imaginations, and imagine this being being seen, recognized, honored, and invited to be present more fully. To be listened to more of the time. To be invited into the unfolding of this choice. This nation, this being, is not Republican or Democrat. This being includes all of you, embraces all of you, lives in and with all of you, regardless of what you believe, regardless of your agendas, or needs, or any of it. This being is part of your experience, has informed your experience, and will continue to. It is now time to include IT in your consciousness. This being is part of a larger family…this world. It belongs to the earth, as you do. It is part of a community of interconnecting entities that are other nations, other sovereign beings.

As each of you is sovereign it your own way, each nation is sovereign in its own way. Imagine the souls of these nations talking to each other…..not people right now, not the voices of those who have had different kinds of beliefs, stories, and agendas……but the souls of the entities of each of the different sovereign nations. There are many. That would be a true United Nations, would it not? Let them connect for a little while, with you watching. You are the audience, you are the witness. When the witness perceives and receives the experience, there is an engagement of life and manifestation. You are the witness, you are the engaging force between what you have experienced here tonight, and what you are watching as the soul of this nation connects with the souls of other nations. You are the witness that engages the power of creation. Never underestimate the power of a witness. You are a witness in this moment, in this juncture.

Stay present, please, for a moment as the witness. Imagine this connection with all of the nations, and they are now sharing between them what is essential to be shared. There is a difference between what you share with someone that you think they need to know, and what is essential to be shared. There is a difference. Tune in to what is essential to be shared, and share that with your friends, your families, your partners. Let go of what you THINK others should know. When you share what is essential, as these souls of these nations are doing with each other right now, all that needs to be brought to light is brought to light. All that is needed in consciousness arrives in consciousness. You do not need to hammer something into someone’s head because you think they need to know something. That hurts. If you share the feeling of what is essential to be shared, illumination, consciousness, and awareness rises. That awareness may rise because of what you have said, or because it traveled from essence to essence and arrived in consciousness in a unique way in this other person or other soul. What you did tonight with the soul of this nation has allowed conscious, awareness, and illumination to begin to rise. You do not know where it will surface, whether in your own awareness or the awareness of others that you have no knowledge of. But it is to surface. It is its nature. It is how this works.

As you are sitting here tonight, be aware that much of the way you learned to communicate is not very effective. Tonight you were relaxed, present, and aware. As you do this with others, or in your daily life, you begin to feel what is essential. There might be less talking, more sharing, more illumination, and less credit taking for what comes to the surface. This is a very wise soul, this being, this nation, and also each of you is wise. You have no need to have things hammered into your heads.

There is a vote coming. You are all involved in this. What is difficult is that the way it is set up does not allow you to truly share essence, does it? Not really. However, you have the power of intention. If, when you designate your choice and choices, rather than only doing so in terms of the people that are listed on your ballot, that you hold the ballot and connect essence to essence. Intend that your choices be a communication of essence, a sharing of essence. Since this is the vehicle that is open to you in this moment, that is the vehicle that you can use for this. We have done so tonight, and you can do so in that moment as well.

That is our message for this evening. We are open to any dialogue that you might feel is appropriate for this time. If anyone wishes to ask us something, we would like to respond in the best way we can at this time.

[questions from participants in caps]

I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THE ELECTION. WE HAVE IMAGES OF THESE TWO MEN, AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ESSENCE OF THEIR FEARS AND ASPIRATIONS. FOR SOME OF US IT IS IMPORTANT WHICH OF THESE TWO MEN GOES INTO OFFICE. WHAT’S YOUR PERSPECTIVE?

You are at a precipice, so in some ways it is a big deal. But, these two men are archetypes, if you wish. They are holding cherished beliefs, agendas, and hopes, dreams, and fears of not just themselves, but many people who are focused upon them. There is, in a sense, a magnification of each of these people by the collective focus placed upon them, and what they then manifest. George W. Bush did not manifest all of the last 4 years by himself, nor did he do so with the help of only a few people. That has been generated by generations behind this person who hold a certain kinds of consciousness, beliefs, structures of agendas, hopes dreams and fears. That has created your experience these last 4 years. Some of you haven’t liked it. There are also other hopes and dreams, other agendas, other beliefs that wish to be represented, and yet both representations are coming out of a very long story of duality. Both representations. And you now have great polarity, pretty much, yes? Both sides standing, facing each other rather like a duel.

Our suggestion, even though it may be difficult for you, is to realize that by investing a lot of energy in one person still within duality, that you are energizing the duel, the polarity that is now your experience. There is another place to go, and that is the place where we went tonight. Go to the source, go to the heart. Go to the place where the soul of this nation truly lives. Stand with him. And it is a him….sorry ladies. The soul of the nation is yang in terms of its nature. Souls choose natures. You’ve got male or female, the soul of the nation is yang….sort of…although, yes, there are always the feminine parts. But stand with this one on behalf of what is true, what wishes to step forward, that wishes to be heard, that wishes to come forth not just for yourselves but into the world, into the collective connections with other nations. Into the place that it belongs in the whole. There IS an opportunity right now for this to happen. This experience is now part of the collective. You have started it, you have begun it. Stand there. Place your vote, but with intention to connect with essence. Do you understand the difference? Do you understand the difference in feeling….can you sense it? You have several days to practice. The stronger each of you is, the more you will radiate that connection, that presence.

Yes, there is pressure and sadness, frustration and darkness. There are those things. And, there is also a deep willingness to step forward and to take a rightful place in the whole of this world. That one that you listened to tonight, this one longs for this, just as you long to take your rightful place in the whole wherever it belongs to you to do so. Do you understand? The longing you feel right now to find that place that is truly yours, is magnified partly because the soul of this nation feels it so strongly. As this opens, you will feel opening because you are part of it. You will also feel movement. You will also feel, see, and experience some of the symbolic imagery that you felt and perceived tonight. These are possibilities, these are potentials that are living right now in this field that you belong to.

So, we would rather not say anything about these men personally, because we do not see them as personal beings. They actually represent large portions of collective consciousness. And, there’s another choice.

I’VE RECENTLY BEEN READING THAT GEORGE BUSH BELIEVES HE HAS A DIRECT CONNECTION WITH GOD, AND THAT HE LISTENS TO WHAT IS SAID THERE AND NOT TO OTHER PEOPLE. HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT FROM HOW I RELATE TO SPIRITUAL BEINGS AND MY RESPONSES TO MY EXPERIENCES?

It is a good questions. You are counseled, yes, to listen to your guidance, to your connections, to Source. And, you are also living in families, communities, and in a world. Inspiration and intuition is meant for individual guidance. Guidance that is for larger choices is not to be only received by an individual directly connected to that individual’s source…..whatever they deem it to be. Collective choices are choices that involve a collective, whether it is a family, a community, or a nation. They involve more than one, do they not? Would you make all the decisions in your family based on your own intuition, your own guidance? You probably would have a rebellion at some point, would you not? (laughter). So, when you sit in council, in circle…….tonight you were in circle. Each person brought through what they perceived into the whole, and it is shared as a whole. Then the message grows, does it not? If you altogether were in charge of a decision based on what was received tonight, all of what was brought into the whole would be part of it, would it not? Therefore, the person who is in the position that this one is in, who says that they will only take guidance from one source and as it is given to them and not listen to others, is perhaps putting themselves in a position of eventually having some sort of rebellion, are they not? (laughter)

WE’VE JUST OPENED OURSELVES TO A CONNECTION WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE UNITED STATES. IS THERE A WAY THAT WE CAN MAKE A CONNECTION WITH THE TALIBAN OR THE ENEMIES THAT ARE CAUSING DESTRUCTION? I REALIZE THAT WE ARE CAUSING DESTRUCTION, TOO, BUT IS THERE A WAY THAT WE CAN SOMEHOW HELP THEM TO BECOME MORE ENLIGHTENED AND OPEN AND NOT RAISE THEIR CHILDREN TO HATE THE UNITED STATES AND TO BELIEVE LIES ABOUT US. CAN WE TEMPER THAT?

You have begun it already by allowing yourselves to witness the connection of this nation’s soul with the souls of other nations. The Taliban is like the Democrats or the Republicans, do you understand? It is not an enemy of the United States. It is polarized with views, agendas, and beliefs that have been misrepresented as the soul of the United States. The soul of the United States does not hate, and does not portray itself to be what it has been portrayed through others to be. So, rather than focusing on the dualities, rather than putting your energies there, go deeper. Stand with that which is real and essential. That is the counsel from us for this night. You can choose what you wish to do. When you stand with those at the levels of thought, beliefs, and agendas that portray themselves as against……or you stand with those who you are for…….there is energy flowing into the polarity, and into the duel, and then there are enemies. At the other level there are no enemies. That is the place that you are now beginning to access.

There is a soul in Iraq, do you understand? It, too, may also be feeling pain and woundedness. When you meet a wounded soul, how are you when you are with them? Do you berate them, or do you open a sense of compassion and healing. Open love. Bring love to the souls of these nations that are experiencing pain and suffering. They, too, are individual unique beings with messages, truths, awareness, wisdom, and a desire to be heard, step forth, and contribute to the whole. Imagine that United Nations of those souls convening. Bring it into your meditations, your walks, your contemplations. Think about it, imagine it. Maybe somebody would even make a movie of it. That’s your nature, to manifest, do you understand? You are the connection, you are the agents, the witness that catalyzes manifestation and creation. You have the power to give life that what comes into your awareness. Pretty good, huh? That is your gift, that is your power, if you wish, your greatest gift and power. So, stand in essence, listen, and then reveal. Make manifest. Come together in groups to do so.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT PAUL WELLSTONE THE PERSON AND ACTIVIST, AND PAUL WELLSTONE THE ARCHETYPE, AND HOW THOSE IMAGES MANIFEST WITH THE SOUL OF THE UNITED STATES.

We aren’t sure exactly how to answer this, but that one also served as an archetype, yes, for many whose hopes and dreams were aligned with what this one spoke or represented. Is the question how did he represent the United States?

HOW DID HE DO THAT? HOW IS HE A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SOUL OF THE UNITED STATES?

Well, he represented some of the voices that did not have access to the whole. He represented some of those whose voices were, in a sense, considered less valued or important. So, he was able to give voice to aspects of the whole of consciousness, not the whole of the soul, but parts of it. The democrats have also given voice to parts, yet because of the dualistic nature, the polarity, and the energy that is so charged, some of that is not very clear right now. A lot of it is not very clear, but if you listen carefully you will find the essence, even in those places.

He also represented the voices of groups of people that did not otherwise have a voice. And he did it pretty well, we believe. He is agreeing…….he’s here. Yes, he’s always quite articulate……….(laughter).

AS WE LOOK AT THE ESSENCE OF SPACES, ETC., I WOULD LIKE TO ASK SOMETHING MORE PERSONAL. WE HAVE LOOKED AT OUR HOME AND PROPERTY AND THANKED IT WITH APPRECIATION, AND SAID WE WOULD LIKE TO MOVE ON SO PLEASE LET US GO. AND WE’RE STILL THERE. IS THERE SOMETHING THAT I’M NOT AWARE OF…..HAS THE TIMING NOT BEEN RIGHT OR SOMETHING?

Many of you who have been part of this transformation of consciousness are participating at some other levels right now. As we said, you are at an apex, a precipice point. So, some of what you have personally desired has not moved as quickly as you might have liked. It is not your fault, and you are not being bound by your home or land. It is more that movement has been necessary at a deeper level first, then you will all be set loose (laughter). Shifts will probably happen more quickly, more readily, even faster than you anticipate or even plan. However, since you have agreed….and many of you have chosen to be part of this larger process……..once in a while the larger process says we need your attention and energy, and you focus in this larger place for now. Once that is accomplished, then there is movement for you. So, patience, and you may as well stand where you souls are being drawn and be present there more fully. And you lives will then move into greater and greater alignment into the whole. You already feel them moving, yes? Perhaps you haven’t seen all of the manifestations, yet. They are coming.

A PREVIOUS QUESTIONER ASKED ABOUT PRESIDENT BUSH ACTING ON HIS FAITH. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT OUR COUNTRY’S FOREFATHERS HAD A STRONG SPIRITUAL CONNECTION THAT AFFECTED THEIR DECISIONS. I WOULD LIKE SOME CLARIFICATION ABOUT IF THERE IS A VALUE WITH ANY LEADERS COMBINING THEIR SPIRITUALITY WITH MAKING DECISIONS FOR OTHERS.

You cannot divorce who you are and become a leader. That is impossible, is it not? So if there is one who has a particular affinity to a religion, and that is part of their nature, then that is coming with them. However, in making decisions, if that leader chooses to align more with their faith, spirituality, or religion and disregard the group that is the whole, then that is a separation. Religion has great agendas and power, to use the name of God to assert its agendas, that is then a manipulation. Manipulation in the name of God. Many countries have done it, churches have done it, and it’s certainly not new. It is, in a sense, why this nation and the democracy that was established here, created a separation of what was church and what they considered affairs of state. Even though the people that are your leaders…….and you are also leaders in your own ways…..come with all of that into the councils and meetings, etc.

Tonight you were facilitated to stand in a place of no agenda and just listen. Leadership fails If they cannot occasionally stand in that place without beliefs, without agenda, without history informing, and allowing just a presence to be open to receive what is in the whole, and what is being said at other levels than just words. You are experiencing a failure of leadership on a large scale, because so few have taken the time to listen at some other levels. Not religion, not spirituality, but to their own people. We are not saying anything at this time about President Bush and his faith, do you understand? We are just saying that at this time the deeper level of awareness needs to rise in consciousness, and be experienced and represented more clearly and hopefully opened into places of leadership where decisions and choices are made that affect many people. This is a time where until consciousness opens, there will be arguments, fighting, polarity, condemnations, and all sorts of things that come from one side trying to defend and hold onto power, etc. That is not where essence is.

Have you ever had an argument with someone? A few of you. (laughter). Has it ever resolved by just battering each other and holding to your side?

NO

No. So, have you grown some wisdom and learned that at times you have to listed to something deeper? Learned that perhaps something you need to learn needs to surface first, and then you can be aware of what it was that is truly yours to share, so to speak. When you come from a place of what is essential to share, does it not resolve? Because there is awareness and illumination that rises. Keep these few thoughts in mind. There are not too many, a few, and magnify them in terms of what is taking place now in your larger experience together. If you have opportunity to be in positions of leadership, learn how to listen to essence.

MY BODY HAS REALLY BEEN STRUGGLING THESE PAST COUPLE WEEKS. MY HEART GOES FAST A LOT, AND IT’S VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY HELPS, BUT IT DOESN’T LAST VERY LONG. I GET SO AMPED UP THAT NOBODY CAN SLEEP AROUND ME. WHAT WOULD BE HELPFUL ON A PHYSICAL LEVEL?

Some of you have a way of being connected that when the collective amplifies you feel the amplification. It might be helpful to you to actually create a sort of boundary that keeps you from being so affected by the collective amplification. You do not need to be connected 24/seven, standing with that essence, do you see? You can choose that alignment, and then realize that your body is truly only capable of processing the energy for your individual body. You cannot process the collective and handle it well, physically. Anyone else in the room having difficulties? (several participants respond affirmatively). Well, let us do just a small process to assist anyone wishing to participate.

Take several deep breaths. Anchor through the root to the earth, so that you relax down and in. Connect directly through your feet, perhaps, but to the great Earth Mother, to the physical body of the planet. Her body supports your body. Right now your body needs support. Connect to that support. Just continue to relax down. Within the body of the mother, there are elements, elements of the mineral kingdom in particular. At this point, invite the devas of the mineral kingdom to assist you to create something like a suit for your aura. Not exactly a shield, but more like a suit of clothing that goes around your individual field, and sets up a little different vibration around you. Subtly different vibration that allows you to stay more sovereign in your physical/emotion field. The mineral kingdom and the devas of the mineral kingdom can help support you to create a different vibration around you. You may need to increase your intake of minerals, as that also assists your body to hold vibration and integrity of vibration. So, just as you would put on clothes, if there is a desire to take them off in order to make a deeper or broader connection, you can do so. If it feels better to wear “pajamas” to bed, so to speak, then make sure it is on. Some of you may have more perceptual awareness than others of what this subtle field is around you. That doesn’t matter, it is there. Can you feel it? If you need any assistance, ask the devas of the mineral kingdom to assist you.

I THINK OF THE SPIRIT OF THIS NATION AS FOUNDED ON THE ORIGINAL NATIVES THAT CAME TO THIS LAND. COULD YOU TALK MORE ABOUT THE PERSONALITY OF THIS SOUL OF THE UNITED STATES?

The nation is a collective energy that has taken on the roots of the native peoples….and there were numbers of them…..that were part of this experience here, and those who came and continued to come, and continue to influence. This soul is not a human being. You have a personality, you are an individual with a personality, yes? Souls of nations have essential qualities that are expressed, not in one body like yours, but through the whole, the collective, and what it gives out into the whole. This is a very creative being. You have some its creativity flowing through you. There is a certain quality of honoring the freedom to be an individual here, yes? Otherwise you would not have been supported to do the levels of transformation that you have been able to do. There is in the quality also an honoring of diversity. There is an honoring of all that have come to be part of this experience. So, there is a value for individuality, and a value for diversity.

It is also a growing soul. How many years old is this nation, officially?

ABOUT 228 YEARS

Yes, not very old in terms of national identity. So, this is an evolving experience, an evolving soul. Some of what it has not been so good at has been an awareness of how to create a sense that the whole is also impacted by the decisions of individuals. In a sense, the pursuit of individualism, which has been a very strong value, has impacted the whole in ways that may not have been foreseen. There is a shifting of awareness, an including of a larger perspective, that is a maturing of this soul. The native people may have had qualities of being able to listen to the whole, but perhaps they were not so strong in individuality or creativity. But, add it all together, there are many great values that are beginning to coalesce, or could, as this moment begins to come forward in this next time.

I HAVE RECENTLY MADE A DECISION TO NOT BASE A LOT OF MY DECISIONS ON FEAR, BUT RATHER ON LOVE. EVEN GIVING UP THE FEAR AND WORRY PART OF THINGS HAS REALLY OPENED THINGS FOR ME, AND JUST THE FEELING OF EXISTENCE HAS REALLY CHANGED. I SEE A LOT OF FEAR AS PART PEOPLE’S MAKING A DECISION ABOUT THE PRESIDENCY AND POLICY, ETC. I WONDERED IF YOU COULD COMMENT FURTHER ON THAT.

You have chosen wisely, because Love and its essence that is everywhere that you are, is actually what will bear fruit and you are witnessing and experiencing in your life. What fear does is that it contracts, and it takes life away from wherever it is manifesting. In a sense, it contracts and keeps life from blossoming, keeps the blessings from being received, and keeps the potential locked up. So, it is not wise to not only base decisions in fear, but to use it as a means of manipulating others to keep them in fear, because it continues to contract the potential for life and creation. So, logically….and we are logical…….there are consequences for those choices. More of you are choose love to base your lives, your decisions, in that place that is essential. You will feel and be aware that blossoming within you are new ideas, inspirations, and things that feel like they would be really wonderful if they could happen. Let them happen. Find others to cocreate these inspirations. You are the yeast of a new creation. You are the seeds of a new life. It is already happening, do you understand?

Those who are choosing fear will beget fear and its consequences. There will be some experiences that will affect many others than those ones making those choices, that is true. However, if you continue to choose love, you will find yourselves being fruitful in ways that are wondrous, joyful, and expansive. Your deepest potentials, the longings that you feel in your hearts, will begin to be fulfilled. You will not always understand how it all has arranged to do so, but that is because you have chosen and you are aligned with what is essential. The new world will be birthed within this next time. Those who are choosing fear may not see it. They may not feel it, and they may not experience the fruits of it, but it will be born none-the-less, and you will be part of it. Were there not images in your groups this evening of new births? Hold those images. Know that you are part of that, and that your choices matter. A wonderful question for the end. Thank you.

So, to each of you here and wherever you may be, and to all who are a part of this grand soul of this United States. Our essence is of love. We know nothing else is truly real. We join our essence with yours as you join your essence with the soul of the United States. Let love magnify as a pebble is thrown into a pond and the ripples move out. Allow yourselves to just be present, to choose what is essential. To stand there simply and purely, with no other thoughts right now, no other agendas. Just stand, and be the choice that you are making in this time, and let it ripple out wider and wider. Release any fear that you have about these next days. Let go. Do not allow fear to contract, bind, or hold you. Life and Love are birthing a new experience of creation. Stand in that, choose it, live it, and your vote will count.

That is all.
