The Cosmic Force - Angel Michael Oracles - #2 - The Oxford Speech

Updated on October 6, 2013

What can I do?

Heaven Leigh:

I'm not gonna blame anyone, not even God. I know that I have power. We all have personal power. I woke up wanting answers, but though the answers may be simple, the implementation is not. I can't change people's minds.

I am sad. That doesn't even begin to describe it. I am heartbroken over the horror in Connecticut. God, I was just talking about the sweet classic movie "Christmas in Connecticut" the night before this happened. Christmas in Connecticut will be dismal for many now, but these gunshots are felt around the world, not only in one town in one state of America. It is a human condition subject. All of us are affected, deeply.

So what can I do? Take the Archie Bunker approach to airplane hijacking where he suggested that we should "arm all the passengers?" Yes. Facebook is rife with these types of suggestions. *sigh*

No gun violence can be solved by more gun violence, can it?

I know there are real changes I can make. But I need to pour my prayers out for the victims parents and families right now.

Still I think about solutions and causes. I can't help that.

I guess the best we can do is to try to implement some simple everyday changes ourselves. I admit I am still in the "thinking about it" stages on some things that I have been wanting to do.

Michael - please help us. I was angry that you, an angelic spirit did not stop this tragedy before it happened. I honestly don't know how many others the angels do stop. Any at all? Is it just up to us to learn whatever these seemingly senseless acts are teaching us? Help. I don't want to think that there is just no hope anymore, that children will go on becoming more and more violent, more and more pressured by thousands of stimuli and societal expectations. What can I DO?

Heal the Children

Angel Michael:

It's not the guns. Though there could certainly be smarter restrictions in a world that insists on the necessity of guns.The reasons are so much deeper. The core is not a matter of more laws, but rather issues of the heart and mind.

Children are killing children. Is the simple idea of looking into your child's eyes and saying, "I love you," such a simple thing that it seems irrelevant as a way to curtail rampant violence? Buy a video game instead. There's no time to even watch what the video game is about, right? You only hear the sounds of rapid-fire gunshots from their rooms. That isn't a clue?

You have to work. You work because you love them, but how do they know that? How do they feel it?

Where is the rage in our children coming from?

It is a matter of rage.

It is a matter of feeling ignored, unloved, misunderstood. You can't throw a Bible at their pain.

Violence is glamorized. So much money is poured into entertaining with violence. It is important to think about what this is doing to our children's spirits. Violence seems to be a quick clean solution. Movies don't show the aftermath. The funerals. The years of grieving. Movies are flashes of excitement. But our children's hearts don't crave flashes of excitement. They try to deaden the real pain with more and more fantasy outlets for their rage. It doesn't heal hurting hearts. It never will.

Changes are coming...

Changes are needed. Changes are coming whether you are part of them in a healthy way, or not. The innocent suffer and die to teach the apathetic. Yet the apathy continues. Blame starts and new laws are made.

It isn't really about laws at the core. It is about loneliness. A mass murderer is not born a mass murderer. Pain builds to an intolerable level, like water builds to a boil. Something's gotta give.

Grief is endless. All spirits feel it. It becomes part of our being. Yet joy is endless. Joy must win. Pain can lead to joy. It is a riddle and a paradigm that is possible only because we are all eternal beings. Those lost in your present, are still with you. We never lose each other, yet there are stages and phases to pass through.

We choose to learn. This is all part of it. There are easier ways to learn than watching our children die over and over.

When we are truly, truly tired of violence, it will end.

You will have what you choose to focus on.

Tell Hollywood you've had enough by not going to their movies that glamorize violence.

Tell video-game creators that you've had enough by getting something more meaningful to fill your child's stocking this year.

Tell your children's teachers that you appreciate them. Tell your children that they are doing well in school, and that it isn't about the pressure, pressure, pressure. Just do their best. Don't demand an "A" when what you really want is your child's inner peace of mind and self-worth. Not everyone learns in the same ways. Don't drive them to succeed at all costs. Re-think what success truly means.

Most of all - tell your children you love them. Look them in the eyes. Sit down with them and ask them about their day. How can you help take the pressure off of them, instead of demanding more and more from them?

The solutions are simple. Madmen are not born. Not everyone will respond to the pressures of life by aiming violence at others, but some will. You are witnessing that. You can make a real shift in this world.

They are all our children.

Simple changes will have lasting results.

All my love,


He already said it.

      After reading this oracle, I listened to michael's address at Oxford. I never knew that side of him. It is illuminating.

      Thank you for reading, dear Beckie. You have distilled it down to such a meaningful summary too.

      Love and hugs to you.

      Angel's glow surrounds you, of which much comes to you and much comes FROM you. ;) xoxoxox

      Excellent write my dear enlightened friend.

      We need to reconnect with the family base. Sit down to dinner every night, get to know what is going on with each other. Turn off the cell phones, computers and video games. Young children should not be playing video games where killing and dying seems anesthetized.

      Get back to the old way of family. We have become a society of quick fixes. Don't rush to divorce so easily, work at it. When its a bad day, and I have had my share, feel the emotions, don't numb them with drugs and alcohol.

      Great write

      Thank you Shauna, for reading and sharing the wisdom in his speech. His greatest sorrow in life was that his mission, as explained in this speech, was overshadowed by insane allegations against him, and the media's obsessive coverage of his skin condition and plastic surgeries.

      Yes, he had issues regarding his looks. But the HUGE message was this. His speeches at Oxford (2001) and Carnegie Hall (Feb. 14, 2001) were his most important messages to humanity. This message is in his songs "Heal the World," "Earth Song," "Childhood," and many others.

      The beauty is - that the music and message goes on. We can still learn from this man's work, his messages, and his angelic spirit today.

      Thank you so much for reading and sharing this speech. Many, many people just don't know.

      His spirit isn't demanding that I show everyone that Michael Jackson was a good man, but rather says - "Keep giving them my message!" However, both his heart's intent in his physical life, and the importance of his message should come to light through the sharing of this. He always said, and still does, to take care of the children.

      It's so important to take care of the child in ourselves in order to understand better.

      Love and big hugs to you, dear Shauna. xoxoxox

      Heaven, this piece hits the nail on the head. And Michael's speech should be required reading for anyone considering becoming a parent. I think you are both so right; children should be allowed to be children. To know they are loved each and every day, to play, to be nurtured, respected and to not have to raise themselves or be raised by babysitters. There's so much more I can say on this, but for now, I'm going to go back and listen to the next parts of Michael's speech.

      Thank you so much for sharing this and for offering a solution rather than merely pointing out the problem.

      Michael is definitely right. Thank you for spreading the wonderful message of LOVE across the world! You've filled my life with smiles and when that smile turned upside down, you were always there to flip it around just by simply being yourself! I LOVE YOU BUNCHES!!! xoxoxoxo

      TYM and TYH!

      Seriously... I think the Oxford speech has gone viral today! And AngelMichael's message is spot-on... what today's people call "old-fashioned child rearing" is actually timeless wisdom. Sit down and TALK to your child... it's that easy!! Don't demand! Thank you Heaven for sharing this, and Thank You Michael.
