Remembering Lives—Past and Future

From your earliest memories of yourselves, the story has grown and become oh-so elaborate, often weaving together bits and pieces of other people’s stories as you make up the grander story of who you think you are. Pause, then, and consider how simple you really are without all these stories, dramas, and conjectures. How much more time you would have if you could slow down all these thoughts and just be you. But you are making all this stuff up to protect that innermost you from discovering the very simplicity and awesomeness of the divine being that you are.

From Chapter Thirteen: Past Lives, Present Living

Lost & Found—Finding the Lost “I AM” Within You by Debra E. Brady

As memories of the individual soul’s past lives are remembered in the lifetime, one must be careful to not put too much emphasis on the passages out of life called death, but rather focus on the lessons of that lifetime as it pertains to this one.
Remember the past…but focus on the lessons of this lifetime

As memories of the individual soul’s past lives are remembered in the lifetime, one must be careful to not put too much emphasis on the passages out of life called death, but rather focus on the lessons of that lifetime as it pertains to this one.

—Kailley

Since there is no such thing as time, there cannot be a past or future to remember. However, in the physical world you inhabit, there are memories of the not-now that hold a special kind a fascination for human beings.

This fascination extends to the concept you call past lives. No memory can be trusted, especially those that have emotional charges. These charges arise due to the resonance you have with present associations. Understand that in order for you to experience yourself as limited, having a body, growing up, and getting old, it’s natural for you to consider what came before this life, and what will come after.

There is an enormous amount of pressure you place upon yourself. It’s what you call stress. Although stress does not need to feel difficult or negative, all these things you make associations with in your present reality. When you let go of time as a function of your reality, much of this pressure, this stress, will diminish or even cease to exist at all. It is the remembering of past hurts or potential future events that propel you into this state of discomfort.

Breathe, as yogis have admonished you to do, more consciously. Breath pulls fresh air into your body and allows you to be more self-focused. Time itself seems to slow down when you’re focused on the deliberate inhale and exhale of your breath. You will find it difficult to be internally focused and hold thoughts of time and exterior reality.

So what fascinates you with this concept of living other lives? Could it be that things or people in your life remind you of something that has happened before or will happen sometime in the future? In one important respect, there are memories or rather remembrances of a life or lives where you were not as you conceptualize yourself to be. The you that you are remembering is not a different life but a fragment of reality caught in the kaleidoscope of the multiverse. You have no tangible way of conceptualizing this, but you know that this rings true as you read this.

Hopefully, you will find this more understandable, but we know that it is a difficult concept for you. You have tried hard to place inequities and injustices that you see in the world around you into some kind of concept that makes you feel better. There is no ultimate judgment, no justice, and no punishment for the choices you and others make. The universal source provides the source material with which you experience yourself in the reality that you yourself have created.

This divine drama you have conjured up can be fascinating; indeed, it is an unending source of your art and literature. Those of us who exist outside of your self-limiting dimension are often amused at the joy and consternation that arises from this continuing story of your lives. If it helps you to conceptualize yourself as living in some past or future life, by all means, do so. You have an active imagination, fertile with all kinds of thoughts about what that might mean to you.

From your earliest memories of yourselves, the story has grown and become oh-so elaborate, often weaving together bits and pieces of other people’s stories as you make up the grander story of who you think you are. Pause, then, and consider how simple you really are without all these stories, dramas, and conjectures. How much more time you would have if you could slow down all these thoughts and just be you. But you are making all this stuff up to protect that innermost you from discovering the very simplicity and awesomeness of the divine being that you are.

You are just now arriving at a time in the progression of this remembering, which is allowing you to discover this core truth. We rejoice at what may seem to you like an epiphany, your true being with the need for stories or façades. When you stop telling yourself the stories, when you can truly let go of the attachments that you have built your life around, then you will be able to see the shining star of your inner, true self.

It is this unmasked and unblemished you that your ego self has kept hidden from your acknowledgement that brings us the most joy. You will understand just how important a leap of faith this is after you have made it. The irony here should not be lost on you. You must leap before you know what lies beyond. Trust in the reality of your true self and everything else will fall into place. As always, we send you love and support in this transition.

It Started with a Quote

johnsteinbeckWe are lonesome animals. We spend all of our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say-and to feel- ‘Yes, that is the way it is, or at least that is the way I feel it.’ You’re not as alone as you thought. —John Steinbeck

Quantum Jumping

NOTE: Amazing stuff…scifi made real?!?

RealityShifters Blog

I’m delighted to announce that the Mind Control episode in which I talk about quantum jumping on  William Shatner’s Weird or What aired on Canada’s History channel August 14th, 2012. You may be able to view this episode now, if you live in Canada, through the History channel web site.

The synopsis for Weird or What: Mind Control reads: Three spine-tingling stories about mind-control: a man with a mysterious implant believes aliens have been monitoring his every move; a séance turns a housewife into a literary genius; and, a California woman suspects she is the target of a sinister government experiment.

All three segments on the Mind Control episode are fascinating, as they raise pertinent questions regarding how we interpret unusual situations and experiences. I love William Shatner’s playful sense of humor that provides just the right comic interlude between serious investigations into mysterious phenomena.

I was interviewed for the…

Love Wisdom from “Elena Undone”

10 day old dolphin says hi to a baby penguin
Young love is forever.

After watching a small independent movie recently, Elena Undone, I was struck by the underlying theme that spoke to me on a very intimate level and I felt moved to copy down some of the “love wisdom” it contained.  Starting with, “In love, one and one are one!” It’s this all-encompassing love that we all hope and pray to appear in our lives…but are rarely prepared for it when it happens, and, it does happen.

I’ve written about the concept of Twin Flames; this movie languaged it in a way that was profound and dead-on…

Here are the Ten Signs to look for in what the movie calls the “Ultimate Love Connection”:

  1. It may come in an unusual, unexpected package –not what we think we’re looking for or even believe we want.
  2. These people may meet “randomly”.
  3. Everything seems brand new, but absolutely familiar.
  4. While your worlds seem utterly disconnected, the paths that you’ve individually taken bring you together at freakish randomness.
  5. This person makes you see the world through a different filter.
  6. As hard as you try, this person is living in  every corner of your mind.
  7. When you kiss, it’s like you live inside that kiss forever, but yet it feel brand new.
  8. You are desperate to be with them and you will move heaven and earth to do so.
  9.  Even with challenges seemingly insurmountable, true love will find a way.
  10. This connection has changed you, significantly altered you–to the core!

Another great quote: “The definition of a miracle is when God gives you a choice and you make the right one.”

There’s much more to be gained from watching this movie and I really hope you’ll give it a chance. More importantly, give yourself a chance, take off the old filters and open yourself up to the possibility of find love!

 

Sacrifice or Surrender: Expanding into the One Love

Carvings in the rocks
We are all one love.

When the Ark of the Covenant was placed into its special place, in the most holy place of which the tribes of Israel could create, it was recorded that so many sheep and cattle were sacrificed that there number could not be counted.  What a way to revere the Almighty!  In those days, animal sacrifice was a way of honoring God.  The thought being that God demanded sacrifice, namely giving up food which could not then be consumed by humans, as proof of our love of the Divine One.  Today, that would be absurd.  Instead, the words and meanings of “love” and “sacrifice” are still bound together, whether it be in God’s name or for those who we hold closest to us.

The issue most of us have with the word…and meaning…and love is that it implies sacrifice in one way or another.  Not in the old meaning of giving up our food by way of animal sacrifice (most people would probably see that as cruel and even evil).  Yet, to love does mean to sacrifice, at least to some degree, our selfish ways to be in service to another…whether that other be God or someone else.  We may see this as a joyful occasion, as it was in the passage, and the very best that we could offer onto that other.

The term, Ultimate Sacrifice, has come to mean giving up one’s own life to save another, as in a firefighter who made the ultimate sacrifice when he died rescuing a young child from a fire.  We may agree that through the heroics of one individual being of service to the other, a life was saved.  However, at what cost and is that a price that many of us would pay?  The Bible tells us that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to save us from our sins.  This would seem to also be a case of making the Ultimate Sacrifice.  But is it?  And, even if it is, what meaning does it have for us, today?

Twin Flames (excerpt)

Detail from artist rendering of 'twin flames' or cosmic twins
The universe has plans for us all; twins will always be reunited on the cosmic level.

The idea of a twin flame or soulmate has been a recurring theme in your culture. It’s only been a short time, historically, that you, as human beings, have had the luxury of free time to consider romantic love and ideal relationship. In prior eras, life was hard and required intense and arduous labors; this left little time or energy left for selecting and nurturing a love interest without related considerations, such as genetic and cultural compatibility and the influence of prior generations. There are many parts of your world, even at this time, where couples still do not have this luxury.

In these cultures, the daily routine is still fixed, requiring specific sets of criteria for forming unions. Freedom from these restrictions and expectations has arisen with your current awareness of choices and focus on the rights of individuals, apart from the society in which they exist. With these freedoms come greater responsibilities, as the individual becomes more self-directed, rather than regulated by external precepts and rules designed by historical and governmental bodies to prevent collisions in the activities of those who did not have this level of self-control. A few of you have become aware enough to feel the connection that has been inherent since your birth—a connection which may defy traditional boundaries and even rationalizations.

When in doubt of this connection, be still; breathe into the essence of this other which is really just part of this twin flame energy you have come here to experience for yourself. The actualization may be far different than your expectations; do not fear, do not give too much thought about how this should, or even will, appear to others. Some things cannot and really should not be explained. The spheres you now inhabit are in other dimensional realities and do not have precedence in your past experience of relationship—especially at this level of intimacy.
