A while back I wrote about the incredible benefits of providing a Universal Basic Income. Read the article here. At the time Switzerland had done a national Referendum on 6 issues and the Basic Income was one of them receiving a 20% vote to pursue. Not enough to do anything about it at the time but certainly a big enough vote for the rest of the world to see it as an idea whose time may be coming sooner than we think.
More recently Finland and and Ontario, Canada have begun real-time trials with groups living below the poverty line to test the results.
In Finland the group conducting the trial is Kela, the Social Insurance Institution of Finland which is a government department. Their experiment will run over 2 years with 2000 random people selected and no interviews or results collected until the end of the trial period. They have said they are not collecting data on health and well being – which is odd to me because this would have a ripple effect on the Healthcare costs for government, domestic violence, general crime… all sorts of implications. Kela are more interested in the employment rates to see if those receiving the benefit can or will go back into the workforce.
It’s not a lot of money, I don’t know how it compares with living costs in the areas of where they live, but to have that backstop no matter whether or not they are working – it’s unconditional – will be interesting to see what behaviour patterns emerge.
They are also addressing how much the government will save by offering a social security benefit that is not means tested. Every government has massive man power costs in constantly testing to see whether a beneficiary matches the criteria to receive a benefit. In Australia they are Newstart (unemployment benefit), Child Support, Solo Parenting Benefit, Family Tax Benefit, Veterans, Sickness benefits, Pensioners, Study grants, Day Care allowances etc. By giving one benefit that is the same amount for everyone – adding a bit more per dependent or child the beneficiary cares for – means all those extra government personnel would not be needed in constant assessment and testing. It simplifies the process of distributing the benefits.
A couple of weeks ago the Premier of Ontario announced a similar “Basic Income Pilot” trial in Canada involving 4000 beneficiaries from 3 different specific geographical areas over a 3 year period. This is great way to see the community and neighbourhood benefits that might result.
It’s not as cut and dried as the Finnish version. If the beneficiaries are a couple they receive less than two individuals – that immediately adds a means test for the ever changing scene of relationships for a start = more government staffing costs. If the beneficiary does get work the benefit cuts 50c for every dollar earned so it’s more of a soft experiment.
One thing that is important though is that they will get the benefit whether or not they are looking for work, if they work a lot or a little.
In Australia I know our Unemployment benefit – maybe other benefits as well – have a test that you can receive it providing you can prove you’ve applied for something like 5 jobs a week. Major disaster! Not only is the government now farming out the job to independent agencies at great cost to follow up on this test every 2-4 weeks for EVERY beneficiary, but for the local businesses it becomes a huge headache. Every time they put out a job vacancy ad they have literally hundreds more job applicants sending in CVs that have no relevance to the job at all just to keep up with the test. Each business needs to send a receipt of application which becomes proof the beneficiary applied so I believe the amount of time, expense and frustration this must add to the process of recruitment will run up a cost for local business well beyond the benefits of means testing. For a business that has heavy recruitment needs this adds to their costs considerably.
Ontario has only just announced their trial which will start fairly soon. They are looking from a slightly different point of view, not just about bridging the gap for those who are hard to employ but also gauging the effects on health and education… a much more rounded view.
So both countries are offering support but they’ve stated their goal is to get more people employed. They aren’t addressing what Yanis Varoufakis talked about in his interview. According to him Futurists around the world expect 40-50% of jobs will be overtaken by technology in the next 10-15 years. That puts the need to support “unemployed” in a very different light. No point making people more employable if we don’t actually need them to work to provide the community with the goods and services needed.
I know that’s a totally Socialist view but one worth thinking about. When Australia’s government makes those who are unemployed feel humiliated, embarrassed, ashamed and not worth spit, the effect on wellbeing and confidence of each individual costs money! It does. It adds to the Medicare bill. It boosts addiction numbers. In some cases causes violence and crime, accidents… there are many things they never seem to consider.
There are other countries such as Spain, Italy and the Netherlands considering starting their trials but are still scrapping over the conditions of receiving it which pretty much nullifies many of the positive effects.
There is some excellent research and reporting on the website http://basicincome.org if you want to keep up to date with progress around the world in more detail.
Financial Times reported last week that the techies in Silicon Valley are also mindful of how their technology replaces human jobs. An organisation called “Y Combinator” didn’t even bother for the government to give them the go-ahead. They privately collected the money, chose 100 people, started giving them $2000 a month and are gauging their own results. They plan to expand this to 1000 people.
In the article they also mention eBay founder Pierre Omidyar contributed to the foundation GiveDirectly which gives cash to 26,000 Kenyans due to being aware of geographical areas in the world which have less opportunity for manufacturing or new industry due to globalisation.
Lawrence Quill, a political-science professor at San Jose State University has said “a basic income transforms the working poor into entrepreneurs in the making…” which I also wrote in my last article (link at the top of this post). Once you remove the stress of survival, each person’s stress drops dramatically and their mind is free to bring in new innovative ideas for improvements, creativity and inventions.
Imagine a world where every one has their needs met and is free to create what comes naturally to them. That’s when we will see real progress!
So it looks like the movement towards Universal Basic Income is finally kicking into action. Like all good movements there will be the trail blazers who discover and point out all the benefits nobody thought to consider, then the early adopters. Then everybody else will look like bloody losers if they don’t pull their finger out and implement it as quickly as possible.
Will that be America and Australia? Very possibly.

Reading through the “About” page from the website of the article I posted yesterday, Vera pointed out we often identify ourselves with status, career and relationships to describe who we are when we first meet a new person.
I’ve often thought about this too. When we choose these ways to identify ourselves, people judge and compare the details we’ve given to see how we fit into the picture with others or themselves, looking for something in common to talk about. In reality though, it gives them no clue at all about who we are.
For example, someone may have a very fancy pants job title and yet, be a completely different person to someone with a similar job title. The wife or brother of a dignitary might be a very different person to another wife or brother of a dignitary. One millionaire is not the same as the next millionaire. The same with homeless people, as I have discovered in my street roving. Each are very different people.
And, when you first meet someone, particularly when networking or at a party, you can feel that dull vibration. Their eyes drift off to the side as they tell you their job and their situation. It’s so shallow, so not who they are. It almost always takes a bit more prodding to find what they are passionate about so that a genuine smile will appear and the conversation can be drawn out to more than a few sentences.
How can we change the way we introduce ourselves to others so they truly get to know who we are? Are you brave enough to let them know who you are? Can you see the benefits of getting the crucial details out up front? You might find that someone from a very different background to you actually has more in common with you than your own contemporaries.
This could be a new way to reduce loneliness in the world!
A New Introduction
Wouldn’t it be fun to run a networking event or a party and tell everyone invited they can talk about themselves but not mention their job title or relationships? How would you introduce yourself?
It’s an interesting thought.
Here’s how I might do mine…
I would call myself an explorer as I tend to ask a lot of questions. I love learning about new, leading edge concepts and discoveries, contemplating and making sense of it for myself, then offering it to others if they are interested.
I am very responsive to music and can get completely carried away by my senses, no longer caring if anyone thinks I am a nutter.
I enjoy fully expressing myself – particularly in terms of dance and song – and get a kick out of giving and helping. I also enjoy lateral thinking and opening other minds to possibilities they might not have thought of previously. Break the patterns! That’s fun to me.
Seeing the big picture is also fun. When I talk with someone who is head-down-bum-up struggling to solve the details, by lifting them up so they can see the big picture, it often opens up a whole new set of alternative solutions or even whether it’s important to solve at all. The buzz they get out of that discovery is really satisfying to me.
I’m learning how it is a gift for others to help me and I know I’ve previously been a big stick in the mud about allowing them to do so. I have a highly intelligent mind – both intellectual and emotional intelligence – which has been a major challenge to turn off in order to listen to what my heart really wants, both personally and professionally. I now find it ironic that, despite being intelligent, I am a blonde telling people to think less and feel more.
I’ve been on a magnificent journey of personal development which has made me younger, reduced stress to almost none, altered the way I approach life, helped me to understand human behaviour and the cosmos so much better. I’ve been told that the material I’ve learnt in the last few years has been more than most will learn in a lifetime.
Putting all that incredible material into words that others can follow is what’s on my mind right now and, with some persistence, I know I’m going to do a great job of it.
My self employed work has been extremely fulfilling though I am really interested in adding a project working in a highly skilled team now. I can’t put my finger on what area of work it will be but, I trust it will become apparent shortly and am looking forward to being a part of a greater cause. That’s going to be really fulfilling and perfect for the next step on my journey.
So there’s mine. What about you? How would you introduce yourself?

In my last interview for the year it was pointed out the negotiations between world leaders is changing as “bigger people” enter the playground and decide when a bully has not been sharing the ball. I wondered, who are these big people? If they are not currently political world leaders and not selfish elite families, who are they? Maybe this is the answer given below by ex-USA president Jimmy Carter.
Women and girls have been discriminated against for too long in a twisted interpretation of the word of God.
I HAVE been a practising Christian all my life and a deacon and Bible teacher for many years. My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult.
It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention’s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be “subservient” to their husbands and prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in the military service.
This view that women are somehow inferior to men is not restricted to one religion or belief. Women are prevented from playing a full and equal role in many faiths. Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women’s equal rights across the world for centuries.
At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime. But it also costs many millions of girls and women control over their own bodies and lives, and continues to deny them fair access to education, health, employment and influence within their own communities.
The impact of these religious beliefs touches every aspect of our lives. They help explain why in many countries boys are educated before girls; why girls are told when and whom they must marry; and why many face enormous and unacceptable risks in pregnancy and childbirth because their basic health needs are not met.
In some Islamic nations, women are restricted in their movements, punished for permitting the exposure of an arm or ankle, deprived of education, prohibited from driving a car or competing with men for a job. If a woman is raped, she is often most severely punished as the guilty party in the crime.
The same discriminatory thinking lies behind the continuing gender gap in pay and why there are still so few women in office in the West. The root of this prejudice lies deep in our histories, but its impact is felt every day. It is not women and girls alone who suffer. It damages all of us. The evidence shows that investing in women and girls delivers major benefits for society. An educated woman has healthier children. She is more likely to send them to school. She earns more and invests what she earns in her family.
It is simply self-defeating for any community to discriminate against half its population. We need to challenge these self-serving and outdated attitudes and practices – as we are seeing in Iran where women are at the forefront of the battle for democracy and freedom.
I understand, however, why many political leaders can be reluctant about stepping into this minefield. Religion, and tradition, are powerful and sensitive areas to challenge. But my fellow Elders and I, who come from many faiths and backgrounds, no longer need to worry about winning votes or avoiding controversy – and we are deeply committed to challenging injustice wherever we see it.
The Elders are an independent group of eminent global leaders, brought together by former South African president Nelson Mandela, who offer their influence and experience to support peace building, help address major causes of human suffering and promote the shared interests of humanity. We have decided to draw particular attention to the responsibility of religious and traditional leaders in ensuring equality and human rights and have recently published a statement that declares:
The justification of discrimination against women and girls on grounds of religion or tradition, as if it were prescribed by a Higher Authority, is unacceptable.
We are calling on all leaders to challenge and change the harmful teachings and practices, no matter how ingrained, which justify discrimination against women. We ask, in particular, that leaders of all religions have the courage to acknowledge and emphasise the positive messages of dignity and equality that all the world’s major faiths share.
The carefully selected verses found in the Holy Scriptures to justify the superiority of men owe more to time and place – and the determination of male leaders to hold onto their influence – than eternal truths. Similar biblical excerpts could be found to support the approval of slavery and the timid acquiescence to oppressive rulers.
I am also familiar with vivid descriptions in the same Scriptures in which women are revered as pre-eminent leaders. During the years of the early Christian church women served as deacons, priests, bishops, apostles, teachers and prophets. It wasn’t until the fourth century that dominant Christian leaders, all men, twisted and distorted Holy Scriptures to perpetuate their ascendant positions within the religious hierarchy.
The truth is that male religious leaders have had – and still have – an option to interpret holy teachings either to exalt or subjugate women. They have, for their own selfish ends, overwhelmingly chosen the latter.
Their continuing choice provides the foundation or justification for much of the pervasive persecution and abuse of women throughout the world.
This is in clear violation not just of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but also the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostle Paul, Moses and the prophets, Muhammad, and founders of other great religions – all of whom have called for proper and equitable treatment of all the children of God. It is time we had the courage to challenge these views.
Jimmy Carter was president of the United States from 1977 to 1981.

There are some great topics covered in this channelling session. The big picture topics of what the planet needs to re-balance and how our past lives are changing history, through to individual pathways and what we can do to move that process forward in our own lives which of course benefits the Whole.
I’ll try to link back to as many references as I can. I’ve been interviewing Mercredan for 4 years now and the progression of conversations have been extraordinary so reading past conversations that are mentioned here can be useful if you don’t understand what is being said. If you have any questions or want to set up a discussion around the topics (rather than just throwing abuse which is no help to anybody – much less yourself) come visit the Facebook or Google Plus pages and write your comments there.
My comments added after the recording are in italics.
Channelled by Francis Evans 25 August 2015
Interviewed by Annabelle Drumm
Topics: Altering life within a limited context, reincarnation, altering history, altering resonating lives, resolution, karma, completion, return journey, female sexuality, the lock and the key, masculine and feminine, female oppression, Polyamory, the Warrior and the Fortress Maker, unconditional love, rearing children, Warfare causing disturbance to the balance between masculine and feminine
M: Good morning. Once again it is my privilege and pleasure to come and spend these few minutes of your time. So many things change so very rapidly and the escalation as One begins to move towards the centre. It has been pointed out as One moves towards the centre of a spinning top the revolutions seem to go much faster until One arrives at the core, at the centre. That is always the truth for any system whatsoever. When One reaches the absolute, then One can easily be at peace because One is still, One is stable and it is clear what has been occurring. So that is enough to begin a conversation because you have a lot of thoughts and shall we try to integrate all of them to bring them to the stillness as well.
Altering life within a limited context
A: Wonderful. Thank you. OK. Um… I have a few questions about “the Author” to start with. What I wanted to know “As I dissolve my impressions that are no longer beneficial for self or for others, do I dissolve them for the Author too?”
M: Mm, interesting. You understand, the Author is simply a way of describing something because the difficulty is One always has to use an imperfect language in order to convey something. So let us say that the Authority resides at the edge of Potential. We have already spoken about the Unknowable, the Unknown and the Known.
M: The Known world is, shall we say, the materialised form and the Unknown is the potentials that are available within the context of the already materialised. One truly has to step into another “being” or another reality if One is not going to continue within the originating context. So, from that point of view, the Author is simply considering potentials and making them fit the context. As One alters the contextual viewpoint, One is allowing the Author better range of potentials in which to put One’s signature. If we were to represent this as the President, the Authority then agrees by signing the papers. Do you know what I mean?
M: So, the Author really is simply deciding in agreement with how the new approach will be tackled as it were. How One brings the new potentials into existence without causing too much disruption within the ongoing framework of experience. Not so much for yourself but for others who are trying to fit along the way. You understand you have your friends and your family and your neighbours and your history all wanting to be able to follow and if suddenly they are confronted with a totally different set of circumstances it is … disruptive.
A: Disruptive (laughs) is the understatement of the year. So why do you say not me?
M: I am not following what your question is.
A: You said not me but my neighbours and friends…
M: … because within yourself one could shift anything because you have already recognised the “me” is the Author itself. You are looking at all the potentials and sifting through them and causing One to plan the ongoing evolution. Even if it is at a rather less than total conscious decision.
(I often get a little confused when Mercredan uses the word “you”. Usually when he’s giving a lesson on how any of us can be, he uses the word “One” and if he’s talking about my personal life he uses “you” but, not always. The “you” above is meant generically in the statement above. When any of us change the contextual viewpoint and make a change in our lives, our friends and family can be disrupted. It was not a personal comment.)
A: Right… Less than a total conscious decision?
M: Not so much unconscious but shall we call it pre-conscious. You understand it is sitting there in the background but as yet not entirely formulated because One has also to understand the reflections to occur. In other words, when One changes the centre of focus then the new reflections have to become stabilised and also interpreted. Does that make sense?
M: That is the case. The point is that at the end of the Shift, that is in some significant period of time
(I had the impression this may be around 1000 years though this may be shortening now)
M: all lifetimes will have arrived at resolution and in doing so there is no further disturbance. That is the vibrations that are the incompleteness will no longer be heard as such and therefore the resonance will simply dissipate. Does that make sense?
A: It does. So in that work, we were trying to work out that, if this work was actually changing those lives, it would be changing anybody that was resonating with those lives and the lives around them.
M: Of course.
A: So that’s huge! That’s huge work.
M: You understand that the history of your people is then being completed. You understand this is why it is a return journey. That which was left incomplete is finally being put to rest.
A: And are there lots of people around the world doing this work?
M: Consciously and unconsciously, that is the case. You have to remember there are significant numbers of threads that are uncompleted in the overall tapestry so there is plenty for everyone to do…
A: (laughs) There is. There is.
M: … and of course when these are completed, so the speed of completion increases and while it seems an indeterminable task. In reality it is not so difficult nor so time consuming to complete.
A: No. And a finite thing to do.
M: Of course.
A: Because I’d heard it being called a “folding back”. That we fold back on all that history and resolve it …
M: Of course because in completing One begins to understand the entirety of the beginning of the thread in itself and this is why those who are still leaving your framework incomplete will of course have to re-energise in a different framework in order to bring about that completion and therefore their own incomplete life. You understand?
(So once our whole history has folded back and resolved all that is not love, those who left this lifetime “incomplete” – that is, with baggage – will not be able to use our history as their place to resolve karma and baggage issues. They will need to look for another place to do it.)
A: Yes. So is that when you were saying they will have to go back through history to find a place to do that?
M: Of course. That is the reality and therefore it is not a punishment. It is an opportunity in order to complete and like all things it is done for the best of intentions.
A: Mm, ok I understand that. Is there anything else we need to say about the resonating lives and the Author?
M: That is plenty for the moment until your questions stimulate because, like all of these, we are building a temple. That is, One has to have a plan, One has to have structure but even then One has to put in the foundations before One even begins to fit all the great artistic…
A: The fun stuff. (laughs)
A: Ok, well I’d like to move on to another subject now. We had talked in our last session about sexuality. My question is “How do I freely express my sexual self, my feminine divine, without terrifying or exciting the people around me?” (laughs)
M: First of all, like everything, One has to understand oneself. One has to understand which side of the polarity was embodied in the beginning (male or female) and what does that mean? One has to realise that One can only terrify Oneself.
A: Well that’s possible. If my sexuality came out that might be rather terrifying. (Based on what we hear of how powerful the feminine divine is.)
M: Of course. And then One would be behave in a terrifying fashion to others around yourself.
A: But if I’m trying to understand self and being my true self…
M: Then you have to look at what is it about sexuality that is so frightening for every human being? What is it that keeps everyone so caught up in this…
A: Well, it’s powerful and it’s hard to resist.
The Lock and the Key, Masculine and Feminine
M: Of course and also it is the Key. If you are to look at it in that term then you would have to say this. The feminine is like a lock. You cannot get inside with just a lock. You have to have a key. But how can you put the key in to the lock if it is guarded?
(This is not referring to the sexual act. This is more an analogy for opening your heart or your inner self. It is still possible to have sex and not open your inner self.)
M: You understand, old fashioned locks have a guard that covered it up. So One has first of all to let the key in. One has to open the guard and allow in the key. But which key are you going to let in? Because only one design will suffice.
(notice he doesn’t say “one key” as if only one man has it. Rather, only the men with that design of key.)
M: And, what is behind the locked door? In terms of this analogy, it is the lock that can see from both sides. The lock can see what is inside. The key can only do that by being allowed to enter.
A: So how can I see what the lock sees?
M: When One turns focus away from the key and looks deeper inside Oneself, what is it that the feminine is protecting? As we have pointed out, the divine is indeed Feminine, and so what is behind that locked facade as it is? What action will occur if One were to open up the doorway? Then, there are some components that we could put in. First of all, it requires both the masculine and the feminine to open the doorway and it has to be the correct design of key to fit the lock. The lock will not open to any key at all.
A: So how do you find the right designed key?
M: One is showing One’s design. One is calling for the correct key knowing full well that once you open up, you are opening up to the Divine power. The combination of masculine and feminine applied through this mechanism then has total access to the power of the Divine itself. So then One should be careful of what One invites.
A: Yes. We did speak of that once before.
M: So the point is how can you ask for your key if you do not know what your design is? You understand?
A: Yes I do. So is it just getting into meditation to have a look and get to know the design?
M: Of course and it is also to totally understand what it is to be feminine. You asked the question what is it to be feminine, but the only possible answer is within because to be feminine is one thing, to understand the design of your lock, what is the inside of yourself, without the guard – because, isn’t it so true that the feminine is protective of itself. The feminine often does not want to be opened up – so how are you going to let somebody in with the right key if it means you will be opening up? That means you will be defenceless.
A: Yes that’s right. So it needs to be someone you can build a great trust with.
M: Of course. But also One has to trust Oneself. Because putting it this way, you are the only one that understands that power is behind the door. This other One (man) can unlock but cannot know that power is such as it is. So there is nothing to be afraid of by being opened up. Because first of all, it is you that will gain access to the power because you are already expecting it. The masculine only wants to open you up.
A: Yes (laughs) I just wonder if this is why the masculine has been so determined to guard the female for so many thousands of years.
M: Let us say the masculine has been trying to open her up for many thousands of years. It is not the masculine who…
A: Then why does the masculine oppress?
M: You put it that way but, put it another way. The feminine is completely frightened of her power. Shall we call it, “terrified” of what it means to be opened up. So what is she going to do? What is she going to say about the guard? Because if it is only her who is protecting the power then she will not let him in. So, while you say that it is he who is oppressing her, I would say she is oppressing herself because she is frightened of what that means and this has been the case for a very long time. How she does that is through denial by holding on to herself. By avoiding being opened up.
(This reminds me of a lively discussion I got into on Beyonce’s music video about Girls: We Run the World. I pointed out she added two side kicks for herself who were men on the side of the women. I said in the real world you could add thousands of women on the other side who would protest if women became more empowered and the conversation showed that. Looking back at the conversation now I can also clearly see the “competition” between male and female.)
A: So if I look at this from the big picture point of view and not just of myself, is it just going to be one by one that each feminine will be able to discover the design and be more free in opening up and using their power?
M: It will be one by one that a female will discover femininity. It is the female that has avoided femininity and so on it goes. The entire story line is not what it seems from the outside.
A: It’s true. I look at women being covered up with lots of clothes or having their genitals mutilated… so many rules and limitations set up around the world in all different cultures. Surely that’s not what females have done to guard themselves?
M: You do not understand how that operates. You understand this. In many societies the process is set by the feminine. It is set in a way because that protects the feminine from dealing with the external world. You have a different view of course and in your process, sexuality has been used as a tool for control. Whose tool is controlling? Of course the feminine wiles control most of it because it is what is so “dangled” in front of your man. It is dangled but not allowed. It does not allow anyone to open up and the result then, is frustration. The masculine that has put his key into a lock that will not open is in the wrong place and, should we say in the analogy, it is the feminine that can reorganise the design of the lock, then who is it that is controlling it? Otherwise the masculine would have to have a ring of keys and try each one in order to find something that might work.
A: So the feminine can reorganise the design?
M: I am simply saying that once One begins to delve into the feminine and access the inner power, then One will take away One’s fear of it. There are so many stories propagated across the planet and when you begin to make up a story, not too long before others will apply it. Of course in the physical world, the masculine is dominant. That is because it is a world of formations but it is not where power lies. Do you understand what I mean?
A: In theory, yes. I guess I will learn more as we go along.
M: The point is what are you frightened of? What is it that would take away your protection? How can you move aside your guard when you don’t trust someone? If you are holding the idea that men are the controllers and men are doing this to women all over the world and men are the problem…
A: That’s why the guard is up.
M: Of course! Whether or not it is truth, of course it is in the world of those that create it…
A: Yes, in my world.
M: … but what evidence do you have in truth? Really only that which you choose in order to maintain the idea.
(ie – whatever you believe, you will keep looking until you find evidence of it. Look in your own surroundings. Do not rely on the media to give you your evidence.)
A: Yes. I know a long time ago when my husband left I wondered if it were possible for a man to truly love a woman like in the love songs. And then, sure enough, I saw more and more couples where I could see that, definitely. So, I know that it was possible even though I hadn’t experienced it myself.
M: And what is it that you want to experience? If you want to experience that, then you have to trust the Universe. In other words, every masculine impression that you are impressing upon the environment has to be One of trust. So if you are walking down the street and you‘re finding another example of someone who frightens you, then what is it about yourself you cannot trust? You understand, once you realise that power is at hand. It is at hand but it requires BOTH to open the doorway. Very important in terms of the evolution of consciousness in the new framework and as yet this is the biggest hurdle. The biggest stumbling block because so many have decided that the other is to be distrusted.
A: Mm, which messes it up because they never get the key in the lock.
M: Of course
A: And then you have all the homosexual couples as well who are more than happy where they are in defending their position.
M: Of course and two locks won’t….
M: … manage it and two keys won’t do it either. It is part of the necessity of polarity.
A: That’s right. OK.
Polyamory, the Warrior and the Fortress Maker, unconditional love, rearing children
A: Now I’ll just quickly check on other questions because I am aware of the time. Last question: “Regarding the future society being poly-amorous, how does the Warrior / Fortress Maker idea fit into that? How can a man build an empire on a rock that’s not always there for him?”
M: Much more difficult a question because Societies make rules for protecting itself. How can One truly become poly amorous, as you put it, without first of all discovering love? Love, as we pointed out, is the ability to allow someone freedom. What more freedom is there than to access power? Power is to open up one gateway. One doorway that allows power. Is it then possible to allow that key to open another doorway? Or for the lock to invite another …
A: A new key.
M: You understand what I mean. If One truly loves something then you will love whatever it wants. Without all the references to the ideas that it holds, “if someone were to love another it automatically means they no longer love myself”. And of course, that is limited love. By its definition, it separates you from the Divine.
A: I understand that and how polyamory works. I just want to go back to an analogy you gave me a long time ago which I love, the Warrior and the Fortress Maker. I see this in society, is the Warrior wants a Fortress maker on which to build a Fortress and if that…
M: You understand because the nature of the road (? @ 1’07’48) shall we put it, One is building a sustainable society. One opens to having family, that is to procreate at the bottom level of organisation. Of course, procreation requires an opening from the Divine. Of course the door has to be opened in order for that to take place. However, in such a fashion, it is not understood as power. So, the child then, requires security and the security is the love of the parents. In reality of course, if the parents were capable of loving to the extent we are talking about then another person involved would not take anything away from the children. But, in ordinary sense the feminine wants security. They want someone that is going to provide the space for the children to be nurtured as is the roles that were chosen in the beginning.
So the masculine is preset to explore the outer world. To bring back from the outer world that which will sustain the family. The feminine is predisposed to nurturing and feeding her family, including the father that is busy taking care of the outer world. So there is an outer world and an inner world and if you look at traditional families all over your planet, power of the inner world lies with the feminine and power in the outer world and the protective world lies with the masculine.
Warfare causing disturbance to the balance between masculine and feminine
M: It is only in the disturbance, the disturbances brought about by greeds that set man against man in what is called global warfare, that pulls the men so totally from their roles, from providing into only protecting and therefore the feminine was forced into the outer world to provide and to nurture.
The result of course, is a disturbance in the fields. When the men returned from their (warfare) role and from the disturbance that role provided, it brought back with it the energy of war. At the time then, the feminine wanted to withhold, to hold its own position, and that set about a war between male and female. And that war has continued on because there is no respect from either side. Then the role of “nurture” disappeared entirely so all you have is that of protection and sustenance.
A: Yeah, survival stuff, isn’t it.
M: And each one sees the only opportunities for both of these is in the external world of economics. And so this is maintained and will continue until the feminine recognises femininity. Because it is the feminine that is in the wrong place. The masculine is still in its own role even if it is only half of it. So there is competition.
What has taken over the imagination of the people is competition. Your greatest leaders, that is those that are paid the most money, are those involved in competitive endeavours. (Sport, business and politics.) So that makes it right that the masculine cannot look after their own, is therefore cast out and so becomes the evils of society.
A: Would you ever get to the stage in the future where the highest paid jobs are those of nurturing?
M: Let us say, until the feminine returns and makes that a principal, that it is as equal value, if not greater than. The equal value is within the nurturing and the sustenance of a society. But you have created further planetary wars to take care of the displaced masculine (to give them something to do) and that will continue until there is the wake up call. And even the spiritual leaders do not call for this.
A: Well that’s because most of them are male. (laughs)
M: That is not the case.
M: Most of them are actually female because it is not in the organised religions that it occurs.
A: No no. They don’t have as big a profiles as the ones for the religions though.
M: The old school continues to try to force the world back into balance and the new religions need to encourage the recognition of the differences and the respect for difference so that polarity can rebalance itself.
A: Yes I understand that. OK Thank you very much. I hope it recorded so I can type it up for my friends.
M: Then thank you so much for your time and your interest and we will talk again.
A: We will. Thank you very much.
M: Then thank you and good afternoon.
A: Good afternoon.

I loved this session from last Monday. There’s some spiritual stuff, a bit about Lucifer, reincarnation, karma, some Quantum Physics and learning about the Field of Love.
How funny we passed through the end of December 2012 throwing our hands in the air saying “well, that shift didn’t make much of a bang” but now we are getting a clearer picture of where we are heading, it’s certainly going to be a very different world and a different way of living.
Want to speed our progress towards it? Start with self. That was always the first instruction. What can you put into practice in your own life that would be different to how you lived before?
Take a look a the topics in the conversation below and read up on the explanations. Always feel free to ask me about it on Google + or Facebook if you need help in understanding.
Who do you need to make peace with? Are you brave enough to start thinking about them as if you had already made peace?
How can you support the children in your neighbourhood? Is there something you can organise within the community for them?
Give up thinking being independent is the best way to live. You were designed to integrate with another person. What needs to be resolved in order to let someone in?
That’s the big one for me right now as you have seen below. Have a think about those points and talk to me if you are looking for a Business and Life Coach to take you through the Shift.
Mercredan channelled by Francis Evans interviewed by Annabelle Drumm
11 May 2015
Garden of Eden, Lucifer the Tempter, masculine and feminine divine, the field of love, the end of being destructive, how sex can be used to create or to destruct, reincarnation now only happens in the past, the future being are genderless with physicality exploring expressions of love, looking from the view of the Author, Ascended Masters are Descended Masters, only 9 Masters currently on the planet, the spiral of evolution, letting down the boundaries to accept someone into the field of love.
Prior to starting Francis and Annabelle were talking about
the role of Lucifer as the bringer of light – mentioned in a previous session
being impatient with each other (falling asleep) in the last two weeks and not being able to do a session
and the role of feminine divine.
M: In your book of instruction it is that in the Garden of perfection the masculine and the feminine stood in all their naked glory and suddenly as the Temptor descends, in order to begin the great unfolding, the evolution of consciousness, brings with it the light.
And suddenly, the manifest find itself shamed of its own bodies, shamed of its ability to pro-create and so it covers itself up. So it is then that masculine and feminine have remained both separate and paradoxically tied to one another. One loves the other and yet cannot trust. So it is that those two polarities stay in separate ends of the spectrum.
And it is from the light then, that is you have asked to comment on Lucifer the light bearer, the light giver, what its called the Gift from the Divine. Because it is always the gift to penetrate beyond what is so much on the surface. To discover, what is it that this “fall”, as it was called, brings into being? What is it that Luciferian energy? That is, the Temptor, what does it do but protect so that only those with enough foresight, enough insight, enough to go beyond the obvious can enter in to the garden that is called the Heavens? You understand what I mean? When you stop pretending, when you look at what is in front of you and you understand you see it for what it is without the shades, without the guilts, without all of the negativity that One places on Self and on Other, the polarity leads integration. The polarity must come together before procreation can occur and yet you are scientifically attempting to usurp that divine principal so that you can pretend you are one without the other. Is that enough to begin a conversation?
A: Absolutely, yes. I want to go back to the Temptor being the Bringer of light. How is it that we have mis-interpreted this to meaning something which represents evil?
M: Because what happens is you take that thing, if you give in to the temptation, what is it unless one has the discipline? One will become trapped. You understand? Let us look at it in the basic form. Then One’s sexuality, when One comes together in love, that One is truly entering into another not to take from, not to use, but to give; then One can surround one another in the field of love itself and create more of that love. One can truly engender it and One is not guilty, One is not jealous, One is not taking it as ownership or any other thing like that at all. But, if One wants to use that for One’s own end, what occurs is something that is destructive and eventually becomes criminal and warlike and so on. So, One can create or One can destroy. The Creator and the Destroyer are one in the same. Energy and power used in different dimensions. One to take from, one to give to. So it is, how will you come to that? How will you address your own ideas about your sexuality? You understand? Because you have been given so that it will not spread. So that love will not go beyond, because while you have then One’s own biological family, then it is one family against the other. But if there is no biological family and all children are the responsibility of all people, all of society, then suddenly your society becomes whole.
A: Mm, so it’s spreading the love.
M: And of course it is to fulfil it all and there is so much involved in that because so much then seems to require a biological intervention rather than a spiritual one. From the spiritual perspective a child will not enter in to a destructive environment unless it has karmic ties to fulfil.
A: Are we getting towards the end of our karmic ties though?
Karma only played out in the Past now
M: That is the case. As I have said there are no more re-introductions beyond the physical as you stand in the present time.
A: So does that mean that families that are in a spiritual destructive place will not bear any children?
M: In that case it is evolutionary. Those that require to finish, those that are necessary to finish their Karmic cycles will indeed do so in a past as in relationship to your present moment. Then a new evolutionary shift is not into physicality as you have understood it.
A: Could you repeat that for me again? You’re saying those are finishing in the past?
M: That is those that wish or need to finish a re-incarnative cycle will do so within a past context to your selves. The Present then, is the final conclusion of that cyclic pattern. The new age, the new epoch is an evolutionary path at a far higher vibrate force. So it is then that Humans learn to come in, shall we say, only by invitation.
A: It feels like there’s a lot to learn about this. I need to know more detail.
M: Let us say because One is learning how to operate at a higher perspective. One is not then any longer the identity. One is learning to truly become the Author of One’s destiny. We have given that analogy before. Now One is the consciousness of the Author and each identity, each character in the unfolding story is one distinction of “The Whole”. Everything in the end is always One, so it doesn’t matter. One is beginning to experience, explore and entertain Oneself as the Author not as the identity.
A: Yes, I do understand that. I’m just trying to understand the completion that you are speaking of. Sorry I’m going back over the same thing again but to go back… so when you say it is completed in the past, from what you have told me each of the identities are on chapters in the book…
M: Let us put it this way. At the present time as I have described, One descends into the identity and begins to explore different options and then forgets One is indeed an identity. One has forgotten one’s Authorship.
A: Yes, I understand that.
M: What I am saying is that once that happens, the Author from this point forward will only ever be writing shall we call it an historical novel. Only then if One descends into the character, it is only ever in the past context.
A: Does that mean we end up with more lives in the past? If we decide to come back in and experience a bit more we can only create those lives in the past?
M: Of course and, paradoxic as it sounds, they already exist.
A: Yes, because we can’t end up with a bigger and bigger population in the past. That wouldn’t make a lot of sense.
Parallel Universe of changing Histories
M: Because as I have pointed out, One is only ever “in resonance” of it. The Author has already written the novel. The chances are however the parallel universe allows a different pathway to be organised.
A: Right . So if a life already exists in the past but we make different choices within that life, this is when you were saying right at the beginning of our sessions, is that we continually alter history from here forward.
M: Of course. The point is is that the massiveness of it is infinite. The matrix is simply on beyond human tracking. One might have an intuitive grasp but not an intellectual one because then One has to have a viable matrix of unlimited dimensions.
A: Yes yes. I get that.
Brain is structured like the Matrix
M: However One can intuitively understand the complexity of such a structure. It’s very similar, if you like, because the brain, as it is, is based on it. With every new consideration, when One reviews a memory in One’s mind, anything that has followed from that memory will indeed alter the memory itself. And, not just that but create new neural pathways. You understand, so it is an infinitely changing structure.
A: So it doesn’t continually improve until we have a perfect history, does it? It just continues to experience and expand.
M: Let us say it is constantly reviewing itself and, as a result, naturally brings more evolution into place, more perceptiveness and eventually will have completed it’s entire purpose for existing.
You understand, so, Humanity is on the perpetual evolutionary cycle. I want to point out the paradox even of that statement. So it appears as if One returns to the same. The reality is that One returns to the same at a higher plane of existence. Does that follow?
M: One’s cyclic nature is in fact an evolutionary spiral.
A: Yes, I’ve heard that before that it is a spiral. So in coming back in in… well, do we call it the future, I guess, on our dateline of the Earth, if we come back by invitation, under what conditions is that?
M: Under the conditions of the pro-creativity of the Author. You understand, at that level of existence, a different framework is in place so that polarity does not exist as such, as men and women, as male and female, because what has occurred is the integration is no longer one of pro-creating the species as it is of filling in the fields of love. You understand?
A: No, I don’t understand that. So the future Beings have no gender?
M: Future Beings as such have the same descent – that is each one exists within the storyline proposed by the Author – but in most cases, the Author is exploring the nature of love, not the nature of rebuilding the physical population because it is no longer being destroyed through wars and so on.
M: You understand?
A: Yes I understand. So the Authors are no longer creating characters that are destructive. Is that what you are saying?
M: That is the case. They are beginning to understand the nature of polarity and how, when it is truly in alignment, it does not need the baby to hold it together, but requires the love to bind it into its natural relationship, building and expressing the nature of God, that is love. The divine made physical. Made into a field in which all things will and must love. Such a plane then, has only illumitive periods of existence before the evolutionary shift to yet a higher domain.
A: As we move up, and I understand that’s not going to happen in my little identity’s lifetime, in the future, as we move up to a higher plane on this planet, I am wondering if we would actually have telescopes that see a lot of other planets and stars that are in that higher dimension already.
M: First of all, when One, in One’s own lifetime, loses the attachment to the physical identity, One can immediately perceive the entirety from the perspective of the Author. The Author can create within its novel anything it likes. Let us say it can decide to improve a new design of telescope that can see another myriad of your stars and planets and so on. But of course, it is all a part of the storyline. None of it, as such, is in existence because the nature of the Author’s environment is entirely (defined?) You understand, even the Author. Because until you can reside in the experience of the Author One cannot even begin to consider what is beyond that.
A: Mm. How many people in this present time 2015 can see from the perspective of the Author consciously?
M: There are two answers to that question. First of all, there are far more than you think that can perceive from such a position, however not continuously. When one can perceive continuously from such a position then there is little reason to descend into physical creation. —-
Nine Descended Masters
M: You understand. So at this point and from all times in history there have been a continuous stream of those that take on that position. So, we could say at any one time, there are 9 of such Ones. Such higher potential obviously is there only to touch with those and encourage those that can temporarily see from such a position into increasing the continuity. Because then One will find truly enlightened Ones. The great… what you call the Ascended Masters, I am going to call them the Descended Masters.
A: (laughs) Descended into three dimensions.
M: Of course, because they are not ascending out, of course they could at any moment, but they are descending in because they have a purpose, a willingness and an excitement in being in that position. Walking amongst and occasionally tapping someone on the shoulder.
A: Mm, I would like to be tapped on the shoulder. (laughs) I would like to meet one.
M: Of course, you will only very rarely recognise them. Sometimes of course One is in the temporary position of the Author, suddenly meet such a One and recognises them before what we can say is “falling yet again Asleep”. You understand, all of this is simply about remembering to be awake. Constantly remembering to be awake, to be alert, for signals to be awake. You understand? So being present to life is trying to remain alert.
Finding our own way back to being the Author
A: Yes, our dear friend (Francis the Channeller) and I were just speaking about that before this. The last couple of weeks when we met here, as we do, that we feel we had fallen asleep.
M: You understand this great truth also. As I have said all along, it is not my purpose, nor my job to interfere in anybody’s reality. So even my Dear Friend, I must allow the opportunity to fall fast asleep. Even if we are still in contact, even if we are still using his vehicle, that it is important because it is the nature of the physical world. So important then to be awake, alert and recognise that you are not your identity. You are not who you think you are. You are not your name. You are not your body. You are not your mind. You are none of it. You are the Author of it all! And that is not the Divine itself. Of course, it is on the Pathway but not “The Whole”.
A: Yes, so there are many Authors, aren’t there.
M: Of course but you are the only Author of your own Universe.
M: The complexity of this interaction, that is what we’ve spoken about.
A: Mm. It feels like a complete lesson today.
Opening the Field of Love
M: You understand, the importance of understanding polarity. The most essential part in relationship, the most important of that is to recognise that One is not capable of true integration on one side of the polarity. One has to allow another to integrate. One has to give love without needing to be entirely fulfilled.
A: I am feeling at the moment like I must only give and not expect anything in return right now.
M: You understand the giving is not so to the Being but to the field in which you are operating. Because when someone enters in to the field of love they can only be accepted. Either that or the barrier will keep them out. That is, the boundaries of One’s own field will keep somebody in or out.
A: In this particular case though, there are still barriers there.
M: And One has to evaluate whose barriers they are.
A: (laughs) OK
M: You understand what I mean.
A: (laughs) Yes I do. I do.
M: Because One essentially gives out one message and then mediates it with yet another, moderates it yet another and then One is left confused.
A: Yes, it’s not surprising is it?
M: Only when One is ready. Only then, can One can truly begin to lighten the boundaries. Let them become more fluid, more flexible. You understand because it is the feminine that is fluid. It is the feminine that is flexible. It is the feminine that allows.
A:So it is up to me to find my “fluidity” again.
M: In the end, consider the dance. Consider how it is in the dance because all things in relationship, one to another, indeed are represented as a dance. Enough for today.
A: Thank you so much Mercredan.
M: And thank you for your time, your willingness to explore the entertainment. (laughs)
M: Then thank you and good morning.
A: Good morning.
