Self-mastery one lifetime at a time
For this blog I am once again delving into the quantum space. I may talk about concepts you’ve never encountered before. I ask that you read to the end before deciding whether this is madness or inspired. You never know it may surprise you.
I’ve spoken quite a lot about us being souls living a human experience through the medium of love. I’ve spoken too about how we come to earth to master different aspects of humanity and to seek enlightenment. I’ve been very clear about the need for us to decide for ourselves what our soul experience will be in each incarnation. So how do we do that, you might ask? Also, if we have planned our lifetime, then why is it that so often we find ourselves living lives that just don’t seem to fit or feel ‘right’?
To answer those questions let us start by imagining ourselves sitting Upstairs in between lifetimes, as a not yet fully enlightened soul. You might be deciding whether or not to incarnate again as a human. There are so many aspects of humanity to be explored that you could be living an infinite number of lives before you get through them all. For the sake of illustrating the point let us assume you are a soul who is needing to master the aspect known as power. It is quite possible that you have had previous lifetimes where you had great power and you perhaps did amazing things with it; and then you may have had another lifetime where you abused your power and created some chaos and mayhem. In order to fully understand all aspects of the power construct it makes sense that you should also experience total disempowerment so that you have a full and complete understanding of the power aspect of humanity.
I need to interject here and share with you that souls travel in groups (some sources say hundreds and some say thousands of beings in a soul group. I don’t have an attachment to a number, but I definitely resonate with the concept). Each group forms a collective consciousness. All souls in a particular collective are grappling with the same aspect of humanity. No soul proceeds along in the celestial game to the next aspect until every soul in their collective group has mastered the current aspect fully. This is why you get to choose to incarnate again as opposed to perhaps staying Upstairs to help out another soul who may be struggling.
Think of this exercise as building a project plan for a huge development… a fair analogy for an entire lifetime. Your Higher Self, which is that aspect of you that knows everything there is to know about you across all lifetimes, incarnations, and experiences, and has full access to your Akashic records as inscribed in the Book of Life, is your project manager. It makes perfect sense does it not that you would put the most knowledgeable soul aspect in charge of the project. Your project manager will liaise with the various souls in your group to see who has what requirements that might dovetail in with your plan or which souls are free to get involved in supporting your plan. All aspects of your life are then built into the project plan. This is, in effect, the overall scope of work. Resources are engaged beginning with your parents who are cast in their role, and all aspects of your life are meticulously planned. Birth circumstances, economic factors, country of origin, race, creed, education, life partners, children, teachers, siblings, friends, agonists, protagonists, helpers, supports, abilities, disabilities, opportunities… the whole nine yards, including a bunch of contingency plans and a couple of emergency exit strategies for in case you get so off track that correction is not possible, or you choose to bail and recalibrate your game. Everything you could possibly need to be able to experience total disempowerment is built in. If all goes according to plan in this upcoming incarnation and you reach a complete understanding of disempowerment, and that is indeed the last piece of the power puzzle for you, then you will have finally mastered that aspect of humanity. This completes another leg of your enlightenment journey. Once all the souls in your group have reached the same level of mastery, your soul group moves on to a different aspect of humanity and the game begins anew. It really is a thing of beauty. Once you are satisfied that your plan is fully scoped and all resources have been cast and everyone knows what is expected of them, you press Go on the game board of life. The souls cast as your parents begin the dance that will lead to your conception and in time you are born! Then the game begins in earnest.
There are, however, one or two enormous challenges that can easily knock this wonderful plan off-course. The frequency in the soul space and the frequency of the human aspect are not fully compatible. Once you have gone through the traumatic experience of being born, you find yourself totally helpless, trapped in a newly born baby’s body unable to do a single thing for yourself. You cannot remember your life plan at this new denser frequency, and so you begin to flounder your way through life, learning how to be a human. Everyone plays their part to the best of their ability without remembering, for the most part, that they have a part to play. This leads me to the second problem with the plan… free will. It is a unique aspect that souls on earth work with and it creates all manner of chaos and misdirection. You can imagine without too much difficulty how this could send a plan spinning off in the wrong direction. Perhaps one of your parents married someone other than who you cast, or they decided to go live in outer Mongolia, or they become politicians instead of farmers as you had planned. Extreme examples, but all possible due to free will. At every junction in our lives, we make choices that change our path and the path of anyone we are influencing. Ultimately by the time you are fully grown you may be so far removed from where you planned to be, through no fault of anyone at all, that it becomes hugely challenging to get yourself back on track. Your Higher Self, or project manager, may not intervene unless you specifically ask them to. This is not likely to happen until you remember they are there and so Upstairs they will be working flat out to move people and places and contingencies into your path hoping that something will resonate with you and you will begin to remember why you are here.
Isn’t it ironic, we come here as a soul with a fully loaded and scoped plan; we forget the plan the minute we arrive (are born), are often completely misdirected by our parents, teachers, and other resources who are striving to teach us to be what they believe is the best version of ourselves, and all the while, we are learning how to be human. Once we are fully grown and have reached independence, we begin to develop spiritually and then we start the process of learning how to become an enlightened soul again… which is what we were when we first arrived. Neat!
So how do we eventually remember our soul plan, what our purpose in this life is, and begin to get ourselves back on track? Well, some people never do. They live the lives their parents, teachers and other extrinsic influencers have taught them to live and they experience perfectly ordinary lives that meet their ordinary expectations and they go through the motions quite happily following the rules and guidelines and never questioning anything outside of their immediate need’s radius. They are happy, uncomplicated people who do what is expected of them and they leave this life completely satisfied, but wholly unenlightened. For others, we begin to question and think for ourselves. It may start as a slight stirring inside, a feeling that there has to be more to life than what we are experiencing. Possibly we find ourselves uncomfortable with the norm; at odds with people in our lives, feeling challenged by the never-ending rules and dictates of society. Our lives feel uncomfortable and so we begin to search our souls for answers to the questions “who am I”, and “why am I here”. We begin to live life mindfully, more conscious of, and focused on, our own worth. We begin to develop our intuition and we lean into our heart’s desires. We begin to find out for ourselves what our authentic voice wants to say, rather than listening to the voices of everyone else who has had, and continues to have, influence over our lives. We begin to awaken. Usually, this awakening only begins once we find ourselves wholly out of balance and troubled by our existence. Then the real fun starts as we begin to unscramble everything that we thought was true and work out what actually is true for us. As we begin to question for ourselves who we are and why we are here, we often find there is much self-healing that is needed… but more on that at a later date.
As always, I offer you my understanding of things. I encourage you at all times to question and decide for yourself what you want to accept and onboard. I’m always interested to hear your opinions and I encourage feedback. However, it is essential to understand this vital truth as we journey together:
We don’t have to agree on a single thing to be kind to one another
So, disagree with me by all means, own your different perspective, but please remain respectful of other’s beliefs and journeys.
Treat yourself with EMpathy and EMbolden yourself to dream.
EMerging from your learned way of being,
Allows you to celebrate life as you EMbrace your full potential.
EMancipating yourself from your limitations
EMpowers you to live with greater clarity and joy!
Until next time when we will look at the question, “are you living the life you chose?” be kind to one another and honour yourself as the unique and incredibly special soul that you are.
