How to deal with physical violence

Question: I’m a bit confused about how to deal with physical violence when we encounter it. You once mentioned it is not enough to give decrees and invocations etc. There must also be a physical attempt to stop the violence. In the book from Lady Master Nada, she mentions that we make severe karma when we intervene and stop someone from being violent as we go against the free will of that lifestream. To me though, trying to protect a child, for example, from being physically abused, seems the right thing to do. Could you please elaborate on this?


Answer from the Ascended Master Jesus through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2020 Webinar – Increasing Your Christ Discernment.

Well, you need to go and study Nada’s teaching more carefully, because you will see that it was given in a specific context and it cannot be applied in general ways as the linear mind wants to do. Now it is clear that if you see a child being abused, you need to take appropriate actions to stop the abuse. But this does not mean of course, that you use violence to stop the abuse. This was the deeper meaning of turn the other cheek. But you can of course, involve the appropriate authorities when you see violence and abuse. By making them aware of this and then allowing them to take whatever action they deem necessary you have fulfilled your responsibility in the situation.
