I doubt there are many people on the planet who didn’t hear about the untimely death of the King of Pop Michael Jackson on June 25th 2009. Regardless of my personal view of this pop icon (I happened to be a fan) there was no denying he had incredible energy and charisma and illuminated any stadium he graced the stage of.
There are few people in history that we know of that had that ability, that huge aura that could reach people right at the back of a 75ooo seater stadium! So what’s that all about? What energy are we talking about? And was Michael Jackson a Lightworker?
First we need to understand a little about Lightworkers.
Lightworkers are wired differently. They don’t fit in to the box called ‘normal’, who would want to anyway?! One of my teachers used to call himself ‘norbal’, I’ll go with that. Why would you waste energy trying to fit in with everyone else when as a Lightworker you are designed to stand out? You are created to shine! Michael Jackson was certainly designed to shine and shine he did.
Lightworkers experience the world from their heart. They see with their heart, they listen with their heart and they think with their heart. The tragic irony of how Michael Jackson died is obvious and doesn’t need labouring upon.
Lightworkers are driven by the desire to share and serve. To share love and inspiration, joy and wisdom and to serve others that they might live brighter lives closer to their joy and purpose. If you ‘get’ the music of Michael Jackson then you can feel its effects deep within you. His music carried light and power in every note and it could be felt physically and emotionally. For me his music connected me to my joy and celebration of life. When someone sings from their heart and soul you can just feel it…. as tingles and hairs standing on end!
Music was Michael Jackson’s way of being a world healer, a channel of love and light. The use of music to connect us with the Divine or higher powers goes back thousands of years. As someone who has worked as a healer for many years I have experienced what can happen when a lot of light is streamed into someone’s body and energy field. It actually brings up everything that isn’t light, it brings up what Jung called the ‘shadow’ or all the hidden, unresolved, wounded parts of ourselves that we haven’t learned to love yet. In my experience with clients, when this happens it can get messy. When a client’s shadow gets churned up by the light of healing the resulting feelings often get projected onto the device of healing, ie. me as the healer or Michael Jackson as the global healer/musician.
When Michael Jackson was facing court case after court case I had an intuitive ‘download’ of information about what was happening on the collective soul level. This perspective might not feel true for everyone but it felt then and continues to feel true for me now from my own personal spiritual perpective.
I believe Michael Jackson embodied an energy of childlike innocence that was intended as a gift to the world. It seems he was somewhat aware of this as part of his soul path. I am not suggesting that as a human man he was without faults (who is?), but as a soul his energy gift to the planet was a return to our own purity and innocence. So, as his music reached a peak in circulation and popularity this energy was carried on the waves of his music, reaching more and more people. The effect of this was similar to when giving powerful healing and the kickback was the upsurge of the collective shadow all projected back onto the source of the light, Michael Jackson. Remember, love and light will bring up anything that opposes it. Michael Jackson’s innocence vibration brought to the surface all the related, deepest darkest fears and behaviours that some humans are capable of and they were projected onto one man. He became the spiritual, energetic scapegoat for certain aspects of humanity to try to purge themselves of their own darkness. This isn’t specific to anyone in particular, it was a cleansing of the collective unconscious.
It’s the familiar scenario of fingers pointing in the wrong direction and of the darkness rising up, trying to maintain power in the presence of the light. He said it himself in his own words: “..if you want to make the world a better place take a look at yourself and make that change”. When people are pointing fearful fingers of blame it is because they fear that thing within themselves or the capacity for that thing within themselves or in those around them.
Child abuse is a global wound, a collective shame and pain that will not be healed by crucifying scapegoats. It is a collective wound that requires collective healing based on truly loving ourselves and each other.
I give thanks from my heart for the man, the healer, the musician, the Lightworker, the Sensitive who fulfilled his life purpose and sadly paid the ultimate price. I know he will continue his work of Light as a guide to others. He is now where he can truly shine and be seen in all his love and innocence. We all have something to learn from this man who no matter how many stones were thrown at him he continued giving and loving and shining his light, committed to his soul’s purpose in his lifetime. For some of us who loved him we may say he was called home too soon, his heart literally broken, but we can take comfort in his music and in the knowledge that his global healing work continues on this planet every time one of his songs is played.
I am grateful for him, for his contribution to our own joy and growth & I will miss him.
