Channeling Omar Mateen, Part Three

Well, I did a freaking number on my right knee during kickboxing class last evening. I think it’s the Universe telling me, “You’re too old, granny,” but I’m not going to give up. Actually, I wasn’t even kickboxing at the time. We started our class as usual, with a slow jog around the mat. Ten steps in, my knee twisted a tiny bit, I heard and felt a pop, then a burning sensation. I limped through the rest of class, determined to finish, but today I can barely bear weight on it. As it so happens, I interviewed Bruce Lee through medium, Emma McIntosh, and asked him what I did. He said something jammed up into the knee cap. Pretty good, Dr. Lee, because when I flex my knee, I can feel the patella click and I can hear a loud pop. He said rest and ice should do it. I told him to send me the bill at his leisure. He also said he’d be my kickboxing guide, so yay! I need all the help I can get but Bruce Lee? Wow! He also said that this happened to me to teach me not to give up. I think I had that teachable moment presented to me again long ago when I wanted to start horseback riding so my husband and I could have a common interest. After all, I’m not about to get on a race bike and drag my knee on the track. But the first time up on the horse as it galloped up an embankment, the saddle came loose. The lady didn’t put it on correctly. So I fly down the cliff, hit my helmeted head on a rock, and the horse lost his footing and landed on top of me. All one could see was ass and hooves and a cloud of dust as he tried to right himself. I was left with several broken ribs and a concussion. I’d have been dead if I had not worn a helmet. After that, I was always afraid to get on an horse and never enjoyed it again. Eventually, I stopped. This won’t be the case with kickboxing. I like it because it’s a workout with attitude and the additional purpose of learning a form of self-defense. At this point, however, it looks like the only way I’ll be able to defend myself for now is by batting my assailant with a pair of crutches. Oh well. Send healing energy my way if you can, guys!

Here’s the third part of our interview with Omar Mateen.

Me: Okay. What do you think about your interpretation of Islam now?

Omar: My interpretation of Islam then and now is irrelevant. It was just something I used to feed my own anger and fear. Interpretations will always mold themselves into what you want or need them to be.

Me: True, but do you think that Islam should be a violent kind of religion? Do you think the infidels and homosexuals should be killed and women should be oppressed? Do you believe that now?

Omar: As a soul, that’s not conducive to being able to evolve and stay on the planet, but every religion has some flavor of that.

Me: Yeah.

Omar: It’s just that right now that’s what’s being focused on.

Me: But do you believe in Sharia law, for example? Right now, as a spirit.

Omar: I didn’t even believe in it then.

Me: Okay.

Omar: There were many people who, when an oppressive regime comes about, will fall underneath the umbrella of that. They feel powerless and want to go toward the thing that makes them feel powerful. But in the long term, they become victims of the very regime they were supporting.

Me: Okay. When you were doing all of this shooting, did you know that you would die?

Omar: Yes.

Me: Oh gosh. Were you afraid?

Omar: No.

Me: Why were you such an angry person from childhood on? Even as a child, you were expelled from school for a lot of different issues.

Omar: In my family, if a child misbehaves, you know this to be true: There is something going on in the family.

Me: Yeah.

Omar: That was true in my case. I don’t want to call out my family or anything, but there were things that happened that made me the way I was. Human beings are shaped by their experiences, and those experiences, I now know, are part of the design that our soul has for us in order to have certain experiences. Had I never grown up in the environment that I grew up in that made me so angry, then I would have never gone through with this spiritual agreement that we had that culminated in the shooting.

Me: So it was part of the design to be raised like that?

Omar: Yes, and then that ended up creating all this talk about what had happened: the hate, the dysfunction in society, all of those things are opportunities that enable us to talk about it. The more we keep talking about it and the more we have these experiences, the more it solidifies in our consciousness that we need to support each other in order to maintain everyone’s sense of security.

Me: Well, okay, so what in your childhood made you so angry? Was it your father? He talked about how he never taught you to be this way and that he loves this country, yet there’s a suggestion that he’s supportive of the Taliban.

Robert: He projects all this respect for his father and his family so he doesn’t feel like he should go there and talk about specifics about them. He’s got this thing about respect for them.

Me: Okay. Does your father have anything to do with how you feel about yourself?

Omar: I will say this. I am a lot like my father.

Me: Okay, so your father is an angry man?

Omar: My father has his issues.

Me: Okay, but did your father make you feel bad about yourself?

Omar: He passed those issues on to me.

Me: Did he make you feel bad about yourself?

Omar: Indirectly. My father has anger. If you’re growing up in circumstances like that, it can carry over and make you feel angry, too, and you can feel self-loathing because of that.

Me: What about your mother? Did she make you feel bad about yourself?

Omar: My mother was quiet.

Me: Probably had to be. Now, let’s talk about gun laws. Would they have helped in this situation, and is that the answer to fighting terrorism?

Robert: Erik’s taking this part, and Omar is stepping back. The woman that was with Omar that I call Brenda has her arm around him, and she’s telling him he did a good job. It’s really nice to me that this is what’s going on. I guess he didn’t get this kind of thing, and now it’s playing out to help his soul feel fulfilled. Sometimes when a person lives a life that was very dysfunctional, which most of us do, then whatever those parts are that were holding us back and keeping us in our anger and frustration, sometimes in spirit, the idealized version of what would have made that better plays out. So this woman is supporting him in this way to let him know that someone has his back.

Me: Okay.

Robert: And that they’re not judging him. And this woman was killed by him! That’s amazing.

Me: Yeah. That is amazing.

Erik: Gun laws would not have changed anything. You have to address the dysfunction that’s going on that would cause people who would even pursue that. We have to think about—

Robert: He’s talking about a driver’s license. Something about a car.

Erik: You wouldn’t drive a car without a license, so people need to be trained in these kinds of things.

Me: Trained? What do you mean?

Erik: In how to use these kinds of weapons.

Me: Okay, right.

Erik: I like all this stuff so I’m biased. In life I would have been, “It’s all good. Whatever. Let people do what they want to do.”

He loved guns, that’s for sure. Amazing that that’s what ended his life.

Erik: That’s my human side. My spirit side knows that all these things that we’re experiencing with people being able to buy a gun without a check or anything—

I guess he’s talking about the gun show loophole.

Erik: It’s teaching humanity something.

Robert: What’s it teaching?

Erik: We have to be respectful of life, but we also have to recognize that the people we’re giving these kinds of weapons to may not necessarily be able to use them in a responsible and safe way.

Me: Yeah, it’s not the gun that kills. It’s whoever pulls the trigger.

Erik: You’re right, Mom.

    I have heard that doing certain weight machine exercises, for example seated leg extensions, strengthens the muscles of the upper leg around the knee (quadriceps, etc) and helps protect the knee from damage. Perhaps the stronger muscles help take some of the load of supporting the body off of the joint. I myself do these exercises (as well as other strength training exercises) and I run 3 or 4 times a week and am over 60 and have no knee problems yet (knock on wood.) So if the idea resonates with you, try it.

    • You’re absolutely right!

    • chase revell

      Continue with the weights but stop running. What is it, something like 90% destructive to the knee, running?

      • Yeah, even it it’s on a gel mat, my knees are too old for that crap.

  • Ejon

    You said that you interviewed Bruce Lee through another medium. I would love to read a channeling session about him.

  • Georgia95Luciana Todesco

    We had a mass shooting in Tasmania, Australia many years ago. Our then Prime Minister, John Howard, banned all semi-automatics and had a gun buy-back scheme. We’ve not had a mass shooting since then. Australians like our no-gun laws. Generally we think the NRA in the US has too much power and can’t understand how the rights of gun owners trumps the rights children’s right to stay alive.

    • chase revell

      Most of us here, cant either.

    So … another soul agreement to make the world “a better place”. What a strange idea. The whole history of mankind is full of cruelty and mass murder. Did it help humanity to become more compassionate? I don’t think so. People that did care before do care, people who didn’t care before don’t care. Just because they put a rainbow flag on their facebook profile doesn’t mean they are really touched and moved by this incident. This kind of action arouses fear and fear leads to more violence. Donald Trump wants to ban all muslims from the US and a lot of people agree on that – also because of what happened there.

  • Aw, Elisa, feel better! Ten years ago, my daughter had a similar horseback-riding accident to yours, resulting in a concussion and a nasty road-rash scar over her hip bone — which she still bears. (I asked her if she wanted to have it surgically removed, but she said no. She wants a reminder of what happened. Warrior status! Woohoo!) Anyway, she’s fine: a 4.0 grad student. Woohoo! [Proud Mom]

    Love this website. My husband of 40 years died a year ago after a gruesome, year-long battle with bladder cancer, and it’s so reassuring for me to hear what Erik and others have to say about the other side. I bookmarked the entry where Erik talks about sex existing in heaven. For a lonely widow, that is so comforting. I have something to look forward to! (woohoo!) — although it’s going to be a long wait. A wonderful psychic whom I consult told me I have another 30+ years to go. Damn! She says I was a conduit for my husband, which allowed him to accomplish everything he wanted to on Earth, and that my role is the same for my two children, both in their 20s. At least mine is a worthwhile journey. [smiles and tears]

    Thanks for all you and your team do!

    Elisa, I tore my menicus in line dancing class. Surgery in June and still in a lot of pain if I do anything other than walk slowly on flat ground. I haven’t given up either. Currently, I am trying acupuncture. Nothing else has helped.
