All right, all right. Well, indeed, a pleasure to be with you, a pleasure to be talking with you and to be looking into your world, and to welcome you, and to welcome you with all kinds of pleasure and all kinds of joy.
And tonight, a time of blending, a time of meditation, a time of contemplation. A tumultuous time in your world, that is so. A war, the obvious topic that is on all your minds and weighs heavily upon all your hearts regardless of your politics, regardless of how you experience this energy, a war that weighs heavily upon mind and heart, weighs heavily upon soul and spirit this night.
The Channel’s response earlier in the evening about the dawning of your day, about finding that voice as Magician, masterful magician, about raising your voice so that you can be heard amid the din … and you have both found that voice and you have been heard. You have changed the complexity, you have changed the nature – no, not perfectly.
So what is this war about? Last time, a dozen years ago, it was about a bully and how you respond, how you interact, with a bully. It was about a crisis of character, it was about a crisis of ego, it was about a crisis of success. This war, a very different war. And it is, we’ll put it quite succinctly, a shame that it has come to this. And all would agree. Those who are very supportive of the American administration, part of a coalition or otherwise, those individuals who are totally supportive would totally agree, it is a shame that it has come to this.
And those who are in opposition, in varying degrees, to such activity, however insightfully or blindly in opposition, would likewise agree, it is a shame. And there would be many who would want to blame. And others, more wisely, would want to look to where lies the fault … not whose fault is it, in that of blaming, but where lies the fault? It is a shame – the war is an issue of shame on all sides; how people respond, how humankind responds to shame.
Shame-based: You’ve worked with it personally. This, a shame of humankind. And the fault lies where? In humankind’s inability – we’ll say it as succinctly as we can – in humankind’s inability to build alliances. Humankind, relying upon the word "ally," but not really developing alliances. Had the European Union, for example, truly built alliances, had the Western world – had the Western Hemisphere and the Western world really pulled together to create a viable alliance, a variety of alliances – no, not organizations, not labels – but not just allies but truly building alliances, then there could have been an alternative solution to what now is something that is this war around which everyone feels shame.
The failure, if there is, the fault lies in the inability to truly build alliances. And had alliances been fully built – over the last decade of years from 1992 onward, had alliances truly been built that were other than political gesturing or posturing – had they more solidly been built, then there would have been viable alternatives that everyone could have enjoyed. And it is a shame that it has come to this.
So what do you do about it? As you look into your shame, as you look into the shame that you personally feel around this war, how do you react? How do you respond? What thoughts? What feelings?
Some may be angry, some may be hurt, some may be scared, some may go into all states of self-doubt. When you look squarely into this countenance, when you look squarely into the face, when you look into the eyes of shame, what do you feel? What do you think? Feel those feelings, think those thoughts. Let yourself sift them and shift them, sort through them.
What beliefs and attitudes do you hold about shame? What choices and decisions do you make about shame? And in that shame – your shame, not other people’s, your own – in that shame, what do you do? How much do you punish yourself? How much do you throw yourself into self-doubt? How much do you ridicule yourself? Or how much do you forgive? How much do you forgive and work to heal yourself? How much do you release that shame? Ask for the help in lifting that shame? Turn to your very Soul, to your Higher Self, to your relationship with God/Goddess/All That Is, to your love, to lift that shame, forgive yourself, and heal yourself?
Yes, this war, it is a shame that it has come to this, and therein lie your clues, Magician, to the focus of your magic. No, you will not write the reality that there is no war, but you can still write the reality that this war – a shame that it has come to this – can lead you into that future, that future, that positive future of dreams and visions – that positive future, that virgin future untouched by human hand, rich with magic and miracles. How exactly, where exactly, what the form will be …
But as you can squarely face your shame, resolve how you deal with your shame, ask for help in its release, forgive yourself, and then direct all that energy that otherwise would have been lost in shame to the dream, to the vision, to the love, to the magic, to the miracles that you want to create. And you can let your voice, the voice of a magician, the voice of magic, be a part of the resolution of this war, of this shame, and part of what can follow in the years – in the months, in the years ahead.
With Love and Peace,
