How often do you wonder if it will ever be possible to have World Peace? Honestly, everyone is so caught up in impressing their opinions on others as being the only “right” opinion it appears World Peace is a Utopian dream that will never come about. What’s the solution? Check out this latest Mercredan session. Just superb! This may hold the key we are all looking for.
As usual, if you want something as magnificent as World Peace you simply START WITH SELF. Learn it, try it out, master it, demonstrate it and others will naturally follow. No need to lecture others!
I’ve added some comments below in italics.
If you want to discuss the ideas in this article, come talk to me either on Facebook or Google Plus.

Interviewed by Susan
M = Mercredan
S = Susan
M: Good afternoon. Once again it is my privilege and pleasure to come and spend these few moments of your time. There are many threads we could discuss. There are many things we could talk about, because everything emerges from distinctions in consciousness. Even the author, sitting at your desk, has to begin by setting the scene. First of all, the characters, then the background, and then the interactions, character to character, to background, to the circumstances and situations. And every time that occurs, one sets in motion a new distinction, a new operation comes into being. A new field of experience begins to occur. So that is why I have always said the quality of the question opens the field in which to define; and every definition takes one further from the truth than closer to it! Because the truth is, there is no separation. There is only a unit of which one cannot distinguish anything.
S: I understand. Last time when we spoke, you mentioned that we’re now able to develop networks to put us in touch with people who are in a brotherhood or fraternity of like-minded people, leaving our biological families to do that. And is what we’ve done with our friend in Australia, and our Dear Friend (channeller Francis Evans) and me an example of what you were talking about then?
M: Of course. And even as you mentioned, your local groups, those that you are connected to, become part of the weight of family. The more you share different aspects of self, the more you group yourself into such networks. And understand, the network leads into certain domains, and one influences far greater than you expect.
Changing someone else’s mind
M: Even when one puts together a reasonable presentation, argument, as it might be. So sometimes one doesn’t agree with somebody, and yet one’s persuasion, that is one’s presentation of how you see things, can ultimately change a viewpoint; and changing a viewpoint often means a new connection occurs further down the track. Do you understand what I mean?
S: I think so. I’m thinking now of my Vietnam veteran friend who I try to get to change his view, in terms of following his own heart and seeking his own truth. Is that what you’re talking about, something like that?
M: Of course. And the fact that sometimes they might fight against the argument, but in many ways that allows them the ability to go away and think about it. The most important thing is when somebody changes their mind about something, they might forget how they thought before. So it is wise, when they repeat back what you have said, not to insist that one told them so! Allowing them to think it is their own thought often is the wisest way forward.
S: Okay. I’m still pondering on the rigidity issues that I have that are manifesting in my joints. I wonder if my rigidity about my own beliefs and trying to persuade people to think like I do is part of what you’re talking about.
M: Of course. If you were to step into somebody else’s perspective, their viewpoint, they would see things quite differently. And nothing is helpful that separates others from others. The further one creates distinctions and polarities, the further one is from the truth. Because there are no rights and wrongs. There are no blacks and whites. There is nothing other than the realities that whatever one distinguishes, by its very nature, creates the opposite balance. Even when I talk about the author, immediately the author is separate from everybody else. Even though we are not truly wanting to do that. So you see, then, I say the author is writing the entire script, including all of the people, all of the events, every interaction, and so on. The author is overviewing. So everything that was described underneath now arises from the author’s pen. All there is is a single novel. It is integrated into a single novel. Of course, all of the structures still appear in the book, but it is simply one whole book.
S: I still have trouble distinguishing this idea about non separation and separation. For example, our Dear Friend and I were just speaking before this session about a group of Americans that we call Fundamentalist Christians or Tea Party that are very rigid and believe in a certain thing — greed and hoarding money and all of that, and the others of us who are on a different train. That still seems to me that we are separate. I don’t understand how it is all one thing.
M: Of course. And yet if I would say to you, you all belong to the same country, you are all members of the same community…
M: The separation occurred when somebody said, “This is the right way, and that is the wrong way.” Of course, everybody is protecting themselves.
S: So am I making a mistake in thinking that my own sort of faith and what I believe is “right,” and the people who think so fundamentally differently are “wrong,” or are we both exactly the same?
Understanding the other side of the conflict
M: You are both exactly the same! Both are creating a “right” and “wrong” game, rather than look at what is driving this person? What is it they are frightened of? Everybody has fears. If these “wrong” people get into power, they will take us to war, or if the “wrong” people get their way, they will give away all of the money to the poor people and there will be not enough for myself. You understand, everyone has these viewpoints, rather than asking the question, ‘How can everybody have a life that is respected?”
The problem that humanity has is in the nature of trying to protect self from the fear of dying, one never gets to live.
M: An anxiety about how to protect one’s self from the other. Because as soon as you separate one’s self and one’s ideas from somebody else, once you have a “right” and a “wrong,” you also have an ally and an enemy! And now you have a war, and your planet is the final victim. The victim of the very thinking arises because there was a “right” and “wrong.” You have your religions — the right religion and the wrong religion. It doesn’t matter that the other side sees exactly the same, because everything is a mirror of self. Everything is in place for someone to learn something from.
S: I think I was trying to explain that to my Vietnam friend a little bit yesterday when he was talking about the ISIS terrorists and I tried to get him to see that they were not bad people, that it was just their actions he didn’t like. Was that on the right track, or was that part of my rigidity…
M: Of course! And once you find the problem, you see there is a problem. If you were to say everybody has the right to land, everybody has the right for somewhere to live, and everybody has the right to manage where they live, and nobody has the right to come from somewhere else and determine what happens, then you discover that your whole planet is in a mess because everyone is going everywhere else for a better life. Everyone has to fight in order to gain occupation, in order to have power, and on it goes. So who is the winner? The one with the biggest military? Of course, you are finding out presently that the biggest military does nothing when nobody owns anything, because it has always been an economic world. And at some point one has to try to resolve that. And how will you do that? With the military? Then you are on a confrontational course that can lead nowhere.
S: Of course, and my not wanting to go there and not wanting to be on that train, to me that seems like separation, where I don’t want to be part of that ideology, part of that kind of a world. How do I reconcile those?
M: By recognizing what drives those into their place, not making them “wrong,” but by talking about fear, about what is there to fear from these people? Of course, in such cases where there is violence, violence arises everywhere. In your own country, it is filled with violence. And it is filled with violence because somebody wants to take something that somebody else has claim over.
The Need for Possession
M: It is all about what I have said many times before — your problem is ownership, “mine.” Is my this and my that, and MY is the one word that creates more separation. If it was OUR country, and all of wealth in it is our wealth and that everybody should have a share of our system, then there is less and less separation. And the more you can arrive at “our people”, that is “the people of our planet”, once it is described in every language as our shared planet, it is our job to look after our shared planet, then suddenly you are thinking as one. And your political views are truly irrelevant when that is recognized.
M: Humanity has had many attempts at coming together, and often in the very worst of times human beings truly work together. When you have a natural disaster, who cares whether you are Islam or Christian or Buddhist or a non-believer, or whatever? Because if the man next to you is digging furiously for your child, you don’t care at all, and you will give him such a big hug when the child is set free! You do not think, “Oh, he is a Black man.” Suddenly all of it goes out the door until tomorrow. And tomorrow you can look at him again and despise him. Do you understand what I’m saying? Human beings have learned to be so fickle.
M: And this is the lesson, when one begins to set and to hold no opinion, to look at the person next to you, at your card table, or whether they vote for one side or the other; you are still having a good time playing the cards. And what is the point of holding it against them? They are doing what they think is best. As you are yourself, doing what you think is best. And one might change one’s opinion in the last moment — who knows what?
When one stands in the lack of judgment of others, then one frees oneself from the judgments of others as well.
M: The only thing they will say is, “She doesn’t have any opinions! What is wrong with her?” And one can smile in certain way and let it go. When you begin to free yourself from the right and the wrong game, then one can become more fluid. One can look at the beliefs that you hold and see them as beliefs that create certain realities. But they are still fixed. Because when one is able to be truly free, one will not mind what happens and one can respond to the moment in the present by being present.
Give up the beliefs and be Present
M: This is why we have said for so long, the most important thing is to be awake! To be present to one’s awakeness (sic). To truly feel what is going on on the inside of yourself. To observe your thoughts and your opinions and your reaction. Not to stop it, but to observe it! And to observe it without judgement, simply as, “How interesting!” “What a reaction!” “Oh, dear!” And, “That was a little bit funny!” You are not getting yourself bogged down in conflict with others because everything is polarized. And if you look at your political — and I am bringing this up because you are beginning to get into the swing of things — one side to the other. However, the one party is one party, the other party is the other, and the whole thing is called politics!
S: So if I do in my heart believe in a certain side, Side A versus Side B, do I vote for a side or just stay out of it and laugh at it?
M: One has to try to bring balance; otherwise, what is the point:? One is better to realize that in order to balance one vote against another, one has to vote for the side… Because if not, if everyone were to do that, except for a few, then it would tip in one direction. And you have to understand that one side of this balance is more likely to be the ones that do not “tick” their boxes, and so the balance is upset. But it is not so much because of dislike of the other side, but simply because it is the wiser thing in the moment. But also it is wise not to get too caught up. Whatever occurs occurs. If there is the cheating, then there will be the cheating. And of course in your country (USA), that is far more advanced than anywhere else on the planet.
S: No doubt.
M: So it is already decided! It is all such a wonderful game.
Life after Death – Ghosts
S: I am with you 100%. I totally understand. I would like to change subjects if that’s okay. You’ve mentioned before, and our dear friend (channeller Francis Evans) was speaking of his old teacher, Margaret, who could see a soul that had passed through the veil but was confused and didn’t know it — particularly people who die suddenly, like in a car accident — who don’t know that they have passed, and others who have gone on… What determines the journey of one’s soul after one has passed?
M: Consciousness! To the degree one is conscious of what is happening, then one arises on the other side of the veil in much the same way as one left. So if you are… And this is why the church was very clever, because one does not want to pass over without getting the last rituals, you understand? So the priest would come, and hopefully put your mind at rest so you could pass over, and there on the other side would be a churchman to help you into the fold.
S: So with someone… I’m thinking now of my father who died a few years ago, and toward the end, he asked me what happens on the other side. He seemed to be very confused, and for the first time, maybe, thinking of it. What happened to him when he passed?
M: Let us find the record. (During these channelling sessions Mercredan can access the Akashic Records. Humanity is evolving where it too will be able to easily access these.) Because everything is noted in the record, even if much has passed on. First of all, this man was a little bit of a thinker. This one did not just take what was given without consideration. And so while his confusion was driven by fear and concern, he was still observant in that way, even if the mind was a little less in continuity. So when this one passed over, first of all the unfurling as we have described — the days of reviewing the life, and making decisions. Every soul seems to have that, even though… Because time does not exist in the inner realms, one cannot put a definitive framework around it. But on your side, that is approximately three to four or five days, depending on whether the person gets caught up in loops as it were.
M: So this one had a review of the life, and after the review he more or less sat up and thought for a moment, “Well, this isn’t too bad, really!” So this one sort of thought it rather funny that what was all the concern about before? So even though he arrived with the concern, he was observant of his concern and observant of the facility that he found himself in. In other words, with more freedom he was able to meet up with many of his old friends, in terms of imagination, and that is rather complex to explain. (Imagination is sometimes referred to as 4D – more real than you might expect.)
M: This one had a couple of quite dear friends. And the first thought he had was for one of these. “How is this person doing if I am here?” This one [referring to the friend] already passed, of course. And in the thinking, of course the other one first of all hears or senses the inquiry, so they meet! Of course! (In the future we will be able to do this on Earth. Think of each other and meet up.) Where would they meet? In their favorite meeting place of course, and catching up is rather an interesting and funny interlude! They both could see the funny side of it all. And once someone can see the funny side, then progress is relatively fast. (Best way to lose your baggage is to see the funny side!) Because having been able to shift in consciousness at such a rapid rate, one can meet up with all the people you are still having problems with, or those that you are still connected with, and complete. So within what might have been in your terms a few months, this one had finished the job!
(This is fantastic news! The reason being that, when we end our life and go for the review, if there is any baggage left over or new experience we feel we need, then we reach for another life and dive back in. Now, in 2015 as each soul passes, there is no opportunity in the future to resolve baggage and karma because the Earth is moving into a new epoch. So if you have stuff to resolve you need to reach back in history and live it out through a life already begun in an earlier era. For Susan’s dad, he didn’t need to do that.)
M: What else? And then he was beginning to realize that even at the first field, the astral level, he was not limited, and therefore moved on. And the body at that level began its degeneration and its collapse. So it is, one returns into consciousness with consciousness in order to marry together those who have explored similar veins.
S: I’m not sure exactly what you mean. Are you saying he came into contact with entities who have already passed over the veil?
M: Of course.
Living with Alzheimers Disease
S: I wanted to know also, does he have any connection, or… Can you tell me about his wife, my step-mother, who has advanced Alzheimer’s but is still living?
M: With this one, she already had enough of the physical world. However, what she had forgotten is that you have to complete it. You have to put the body to rest. So the problem for her is still feeding the physical with energy, but she has lost the trail that leads to that. So it is a difficult task, and only further degeneration of the physical self, as is inevitable, will close the final window on it. So to all intents, she has already passed over and is already exploring the life that she had had. So one could say this is why what is called your long-term memories return in what you call senility. It is because the review is already taking place — at a very slow rate, of course.
S: Of course, ‘cause we’re still here. So as the person responsible for her medical care, I guess there’s no right or wrong, but if I have to make a decision as to whether she receives more care to prolong her physical life…
M: Not at all! She is not wanting that at all. She has no interest in the physical body at all.
S: That’s what I thought.
M: And in many ways it is still limiting her joining her husband, who truly was the love of her life. Maybe not so much his, but certainly her life.
M: Because he was so accepting of her. I want to say, not that it started that way, but in the later time, particularly when he was getting ready to leave, she was truly attached to him. And I want to say, some parts of her went across the veil with him, and that is the beginning of her demise.
M: And that is why she forgot about the body is because so much of her went with him and, at a certain degree point — not so much on the feeling astral level but certainly on the mental plane — he is waiting for her to join. Because he wants to make sure that this time she does not proceed before she is ready.
S: Okay. That is fabulous. Thank you so much, Mercredan.
M: I want to say these two did indeed enjoy something that is not altogether that common. Because there was a lot of upset in both lives. And learning to accept somebody and do one’s best, and that was always the case on both sides. Both always thought the other was doing the best that they could.
S: That’s what I thought, too. So they did have that. That’s great.
M: And it is, in terms of consciousness, that is quite a boost.
S: For them?
M: For them, for the completions, because these two of course had other lifetimes together. And I want to say, not altogether particularly happy ones.
S: My Dad said to me one time that he didn’t think his wife could ever be happy in this life. And I had that sense also. So hopefully she can be happy now.
M: That is the point. She did not find the physical world particularly to her liking. And particularly because she was given more, but not enough. She had everything that she could want, but she did not have the ability to have power. And that is from other lifetimes, of course. I want to say this one had many lives as a male with lots of power, and the misuse of assets of money. In this life, then, she had access to it all, but as a woman, no power. What a balancing act it was! And even though she was unhappy about it, on the other side she has even already begun to recognize the benefit the life provided.
(This is something I’ve heard from other channellers as well in terms of looking at a life from that high perspective. When a person suffers trauma, bad luck, illness etc. this is experience – neither good nor bad – and often comes as a counter balance to something before (past life or earlier on in life) which the soul was reaching for. When you are in the poo in life, by giving in to the situation and fully experiencing it rather than fighting against it, you will find a way out much quicker because the experience was the only thing you wanted from it.)
S: Great. That’s great. That’s wonderful.
M: Is that enough for today?
S: It is, and I appreciate it so much.
M: Then thank you for your time and your interest. It is always wonderful to talk, because you bring out interesting topics that can be built upon. Then thank you, and good afternoon.
