Introduction:

Our personal and collective beliefs and attitudes have shaped our past, affect our present, and create a blueprint for our future.

It is in the development of a consciousness of the messages we send out into the Universe and the recognition of what is returning to us that gives us control in our lives.

The Universe came about as form was needed to play out the duality we choose eons ago – before we were in form. Me-versus-you and us-versus-them attitudes that divide rather than unite us is that duality playing out.

Humanity’s issues arise from the false belief of our separateness from Source/Spirit/God.

At our core we are all the same. We all emerged from the same Source/Oneness. Focusing on our similarities rather than on our differences is what will unite us enough help bring about a fairer, safer, and more egalitarian world – where all people have the opportunities to thrive.

Humanity is going through a Shift. It is our cosmic time to wake up from the illusion of our separateness from the Oneness we emerged from – and from our separateness from each other. It is also time for us to embrace the multimensional beings that we are.

We don’t have to understand or even believe all the talk about the Shift or Ascension; we just have to embody or embrace the qualities of love.

Chapter 1

Whether positive or negative, our unconscious beliefs act upon us without our consent, or real knowledge of why.

Ideas of me-and-you and us-and-them reinforce unity. Those of me-versus-you and us-versus-them reinforce separation and encourage divisive attitudes.

Somewhere deep within the crevices of our mind lies the cellular memories of the original feelings of living within a harmony-ruled paradigm, and so it remains a longing deep within us.

Humanity’s history has been based on conditional love. This has created conflicting messages within us, because we extol the virtues of love, but do not uphold them.

We were not sent away by a vengeful God. At levels beyond our awareness and before form we bought into the ego’s (or Satan’s) deception that we had broken our connection to God/ Source. We were filled with remorse, guilt, and fear. Fear of retribution and the projection of that fear with its ensuing shame and guilt into judgment of others is the basis of the human predicament.

Chapter 2

Many have confused God’s revenge with the Universal Law of Balance and that of Cause and Effect playing out in our lives.

Judging another or situations is actually a form of self-hatred, as we are in effect sending daggers into our psyche, as well as into that of the other.

Just as there are proven laws such as gravity that govern our physical world, there are also laws that govern our Universe – and they affect us in all aspects of our lives.

It is in the understanding and applying of the Universal Laws that pertain to us that we can become our Best Self and feel empowered in all areas of our life.

Chapter 3

“The truth will set you free!” Powerful shifts will occur in us when we acknowledge “the truth of who we are” while at the same time reconcile “the truth of who we are being.”

Feeling peace and being happy and empowered requires that we believe in our hearts that we deserve to feel peaceful, and be happy and empowered.

Resistance, the antithesis to non-resistance, is a 3rd dimensional quality that is of a heavy density and requires energy. This energy anchors within us the importance of what we are resisting, making it more real and creating a type of solidity within our being. 

Even though our efforts affect the world matrix, raising out consciousness is not about changing the world, but about changing what is in our minds. However, raising our consciousness often inspires us to assist individuals and the disenfranchised and to help bring about a fairer and more egalitarian world.

As we let go of our denser attitudes, like blame, anger, hatred, cruelty, and greed and start embracing the lighter ones like love, compassion, acceptance, fairness, and equality it re-ignites within us our true, gentle, loving nature. We become more in tune with the good of the all, rather than the good of the few, and our attitudes and actions will start to reflect this, as altruism replaces selfishness. 

Chapter 4

We have been detached from and unaware of the unconditional love that is at the core of our being.

Don’t wallow in what you have or haven’t done—don’t get stuck in the darkness!

As we embrace new, more positive attitudes and approaches to life, we must be careful not to become holier-than-though or adopt a me-better-than-you persona.

 Our ego is “suspicious at best and vicious at worst.” It can turn around and slap us in the face when we are least expecting it – especially when life issues crop up, we are vulnerable with fatigue, or….

How we choose to live life “in the meantime” will likely be the deciding factor to our happiness, because most of our life is spent in the meantime.

It is usually our intellect that is running the show, and our right brain and its creative impulses is usually at its beck and call.

It is often in times of inertia when the real inner work is being done. Once we show interest in changing for the better Spirit works with our inner being on an energetic/spiritual level, and even though much inner juggling is going on these energetic shifts are often very subtle. Building new pathways takes time. Stay patient and embrace the quiet time. You may soon be inspired into action.

The journey to wholeness is a process. Although it is an upward spiral, this period of transformation often seems to take two steps forward and one step backwards and brings with it a sense of fear and uneasiness. We are letting go of what we know, but the have not yet anchored in what replaces it. This can be very unsettling.

Chapter 5

Couples are usually just smashing into each other trying to get their needs met.

We yearn for intimacy in our relationships, but the playing out of our unconscious influences drives wedges between us.

Our closest relationships are often experienced as painful, as their purpose is to show us our misalignments, so that we can heal them.

It is almost impossible to correct others, especially children, without instilling shame into them.

Any ideal or belief based on I-am-right-and-you-are-wrong promotes ideas of separation; not unity; not unconditional love.

When the same situations continue to surface in our lives, Spirit is simply offering us opportunities to choose again, so that we can evolve, grow spiritually, and become our Best Self.

Unless under the influence of major unconscious influences and their dysfunctions, most teens and young adults have the wisdom inside of them to make good, sound life choices that will serve them best, even if they can’t yet articulate them.

Chapter 6

Grace can be bestowed upon us, but we also invoke a state of grace when we align with love and attune to universal energies.

Nothing exists but Oneness. We emerged from the Oneness, are still one with it, but within our current perceptual awareness we believe ourselves separated from it.  

The seventh dimension (of the twelve noted) is considered the level of Christ consciousness.

The Masters were not under the laws of the physical world, nor are we when we partner up them, Spirit, or any other enlightened being who exists within the higher states of consciousness.

An understanding of past-lives and our past and current soul’s journey can explain why some children in a family may have an issue with say, addiction, while another does not.

The Universe will disappear when there is no longer any need for form to play out the duality we embraced eons ago at levels beyond our current awareness.

Reincarnation does not exist in Oneness. However, as we have bought into duality and its illusionary nature, re-incarnation exists, as the different lifetimes offer us soul-growth opportunities on our way to reemerging with the Oneness we originated from.

All form we perceive is an illusion and is of a dualistic nature. Everything within this duality, including us, the Masters, the extra-terrestrials, the light-beings, the Archangels, Spirit, and even the Universe itself is an illusion.

The different races that visited earth inhabit dimensions with varying degrees of spiritual evolution, just as here on earth some of us are more spiritually evolved while others are more technologically advanced.

Chapter 7

When accessing higher levels of consciousness, we connect to the universal forces, and the laws of time, space, and form are easily overcome. We become more attuned to the organic, quantum makeup of the elements. From our limited 3rd dimensional perspective, this is why enlightened beings seem to create miracles.

The availability of free energy is in the realm of possibilities. However, we must believe in this potential; this will help Gaia align herself to the higher dimension from which we can more easily bring it forth.

Our hearts, thoughts, and brains create vibrations. Vibrations create electromagnetic fields. Christiane Northrup tells us that the electromagnetic fields created from our heart chakras are forty times stronger than those created from our brains. Some say even much more so.

The Universe is holographic. As we move beyond the limitations of the 3rd dimension Humanity has existed under we will be able to take advantage of all it entails. This will allow us to feel empowered, be able to reach our full potentials, and feel connected to one another.

As we continue to uncover all about who the gods of old really were, we must be careful not to allow defensiveness about our beliefs to overshadow the true intentions of the Masters and the intrinsic value of the belief systems that blossomed in their wake.

Our thoughts affect our cells, and as they divide they will take their cues from what is already there. If we are sick and put all our focus on being sick, or believe we will get sick, we are creating a design supporting illness. The cell will then replicate itself based on our focus and what we think and believe – unless it is given a new plan.

The masters who came to help us align with the Oneness we emerged from hailed from the higher realms/dimensions, and as such their vibration was light and they exuded unconditional love. They did not continuously return to earth because coming here into our dense and dark 3rd dimension world would be like someone leaving a loving family living in a free, fair, and safe country to live a war torn country where people are mistreated, abused, and in fear of their lives. 

The extra-terrestrials from the realms closest to us were to act as intermediates between us and those light-beings who represent God were intended to support and steer our journey back to that Oneness we emanated from. However, because they were within the illusion some acted badly – just like a minister or guru veers from their intended mission.

At this point in our history and evolution only highly spiritually evolved extra-terrestrials from the higher dimensions are now allowed to interact with earth.

Chapter 8

Traumatic situations are held in our cellular memory until they are dealt with: they sit there like open doors for ailments.

When taking steps to overcome negative influences that are keeping us from being our Best Self, we are trying to replace the old habits, not break them.

In the past we were ignorant about many diseases as well as the mind-body connection regarding all areas of our well-being. With all our newfound information, we now have to be careful not to stigmatize our illnesses because of what we do know, rather than what we do not know.

Chapter 9

Both the physical and emotional abuses we have put upon our Planet has affected her, and she has had to shrug them off.

Some of the changes Gaia is going through are simply part of her evolutionary process, but many are because of the abuses we have put upon her – physically and emotionally – through greed, ignorance, and modernization. 

One of the Indigenous peoples’ main purposes is to maintain their connection to the Planet so that when we strayed, they would be able to show us the way back. We must heed their advice!

At one point in history Humanity lived in harmony with nature and lived sustainability with the Planet’s natural elements. The further we fell into duality, lack, greed, and getting what we wanted and needed to survive became our motivation. This grew to such an extent that we now even manipulate nature to those ends.

amassing wealth for greed or power and hoarding money goes against the laws of nature.

Keeping a vision of the highest ideal of our purpose at the forefront of our consciousness will help keep the pitfalls that monetary abundance and the power it brings with it at bay.

If we want to attract abundance in our life what we hold in our Life Matrix about money must be clear and positive. We must ensure our thoughts and words support that it is possible that we will receive what we are asking for, and that we deserve it . We must ensure we are not outwardly, or even inwardly, critical of others’ successes.

We will attract into our life what we focus on – positively. If we worry about money, getting that job, or …, the vibration we are sending out holds static. To attract what we want into out lives we have to keep the pathways to the universal powers that can deliver it clear – clear of negativity, worry, directives, impatience, manipulation, and second guessing ourselves.

Chapter 10

 The Ascension of Gaia is a cosmic event of huge proportions!

 At levels beyond our awareness we chose to be here on earth at this time of the Shift and Gaia’s Ascension for our personal, collective, and this cosmic journey.

Although we do our part in embracing higher-dimensional attitudes, the impulses to do so come from the higher realms and are divinely inspired.

Ascension is a term used to denote Gaia lifting herself out of the dark and dense 3rd dimension she has inhabited for so long into the 5th dimension, or even higher, where the qualities of love rule.

We are collectively invited to ascend with Gaia on this Shift. However, the passport requirement is to embrace love and all its qualities, like compassion, understanding, acceptance, fairness, and generosity.

Chapter 11

Just as we have the power to become all that we can be, we also have the power to create a beautiful, clean, and safe world where everybody thrives.

It will take collective optimistic vibrations to bring the world we want into our sphere of possibilities and overrule the lack paradigm we embraced eons ago and which remains firmly entrenched in our unconscious minds.

Hope encourages us, holds our dreams together, and keeps our efforts moving forward. It is the harbinger that will keep the dream alive to create the world we so long for and the door open for the actions to go through to bring it about.

 Conclusion

Where divisiveness treads love cannot flourish. Where there is no love – peace, joy, and happiness cannot survive. Getting this is what will change us and the world!

We all have to find the balance between working within the realities of our lives and our world while aiming to create new and better realities wherever possible.

Any ideal or belief based on I-am-right-and-you-are-wrong promotes ideas of separation; not unity; not unconditional love.

When our path is not clearly defined, going with the flow of where we are now, opens us pathways to the wisdom needed for the next step.

Every contact with another person is an opportunity to offer notions of unity and Oneness, or those of polarity and separation.

This Shift is encouraging the balancing of our male and female energies. This will make us feel energized, as the imbalance of these seemingly opposing forces encourages us to deny important, innate aspects of ourselves.

This Shift brings with it much light and love. This light is crucial as it cuts through and dispels the darkness within us; the love shines through the subsequent cracks and rekindles itself within us reminding us of the truth of who we are.

Abundance: How Being Open, Closed Off, or Creating Static Affect our Desires  

Abundance means different things to different people. Being comfortable in life, having a satisfying career, achieving our personal or monetary goals, or having love in our life and loved ones around us are a few of the common goals we aim towards or yearn for.

We have been taught that we have to work hard, struggle, and use all sorts of “tried and true” methods in attempts to achieve what we want, but we are now becoming aware that our thoughts and attitudes have as much to do with attaining what we want and desire as our efforts – maybe even more.

This is because our thoughts and attitudes engage universal powers, which hold far greater power than our efforts alone. Engaging universal powers give us access to universal abundance, which holds far greater possibilities than we could even imagine. However, to fully engage universal abundance, we must be open to it and abide by the universal laws in operates under. (Chapter 2, Universal Laws / Kingdom Principles outlines the laws that affect us and our everyday lives).

Our connection to universal abundance can be open, closed, or it can hold static whereby we send and/or receive muffled messages. To maintain what we have or attract what we want in life, we have to ensure we are aligning our thoughts, words, and actions with the Abundance Paradigm.

At some point in our lives I’m sure we have all experienced having limited funds and have had to be conservative and judicious to meet our obligations each month, or maybe could not even meet them. It is a really scary place to be. Below are three examples of how our attitudes may affect the outcome of being in a sticky financial situation.

We are open to the universal powers that can supply us what we need and want if we are realistic regarding our finances and have remained positive without being in denial; are grateful for what we have; if our thoughts and remarks anticipate an improvement of our circumstance; and if we maintain or proportionally adjust any donation promises we agreed to. We are then being optimistic and believing in the powers of the Universe to help us. This open channel keeps the possibility of receiving or attracting to us what we want alive.*

We are closed off from the universal powers that can help us with what we want if we have become obsessive about our financial situation and have developed negative thought patterns about it; if our comments are pessimistic about our state of affairs; and if we have become angry, stingy, or blame others for our situation and think life is not fair. These attitudes create blocks to our connection to the Abundance Paradigm and our requests do not get through. This also keeps a viscous circle going. We may then become desperate and think of, or even partake in, underhanded ways of solving our financial problems, which further distances us from universal help.

Static is created in our connection to the universal powers when our attitudes keep us in-between being completely open and completely blocked to them. This happens because we may still worry or fall prey to negative thinking but still try to remain optimistic and positive, and we may vacillate between positive and negative comments regarding our financial situation. As we have not completely severed our connection we may see somewhat of an improvement in our money problems, but these conflicting attitudes have created confusion in our being and thereby in our request for the improvements we want. The channel to the universal powers is not fully closed, but as there is static in our requests they may be unclear and/or the insights we receive to make what we want happen might be ambiguous or incorrect as they are based on confusing information.*

If we want to change our financial situation we have to align our whole being with the premises in the Abundance Paradigm, including our thoughts, words, and actions, and therefore our vibrations. Creating abundantly is our birthright. However, if we have thoughts like “I’ll never get out of debt or ahead in life,” we anchor that into our Life Matrix; if someone makes a suggestion for an outing and we cannot afford to join in and say something like “I can’t afford it,” “I never spend money on things like that,” or “I’ll never be able to afford that,” we immediately confirm our lack.

Negative declarations confuse any messages we may have already sent to the Universe. On the one hand, we may want something, request it, and even day-dream about it, but then the words we utter contradict the desire as the vibration attached to the pessimistic words throws a negating component into the mix. This also undermines in us the belief that the Universe can deliver what we want, thereby further blocking the energetic pathways to the Abundance Paradigm and the likelihood of these experiences materializing.

Conversely, positive affirmations such as “I’m in debt today, but know it will change soon;” “I would love to join you but can’t afford it right now;” or “That sounds like so much fun, maybe another time” confirms our desire to participate, even if we cannot afford it now. This invites in the likelihood of being able to partake at another time. Because we have started our replies on positive, hopeful notes, our vibrations emit the desire to the Universe, the belief it can happen, and so the potential for it happening is then born. Our energetic pathway to the Abundance Paradigm is open.

It may not feel right or comfortable having to make all these adjustments to our attitudes or thinking patterns. But we must! We actually request only tidbits of what the universe has in store for us, because have been unaware that we are meant to create our own reality, how to do it, and that love, joy, and feeling empowered are our inheritances. We have become caught in norms that Humanity created eons ago, and we unknowingly perpetrated them. We didn’t know how else to navigate life. But it is now our cosmic time to overcome these disempowering ways of living. Whereas our past history was based on fear, lack, greed, control, and unfairness, we are now ready to regain our own empowerment, and extend love, compassion, acceptance, and equality to all others – so they too can find their empowerment. But as these old ways of thinking are deeply ingrained into our psyches, we have to make conscious efforts to overcome them.

(Illustrations 7, 8, and 9 in the book give a visual of these Open, Closed, and Static concepts).

Further Understanding Reincarnation and Past Lives

You can read more about the book this article is based on by clicking on “Book Synopsis” above.

—————–

Contrary to the Abrahamic religions, reincarnation is a common belief that most Eastern religions/philosophies embrace. They acknowledge that within the reality and level of consciousness we exist in reincarnation is a factor, while Christianity, Judaism, and Islam prefer to focus on the Oneness we emerged from and are still a part of.

Within full Oneness reincarnation does not exist as there is no awareness of duality, or of its ideas of separation: me-and-you or us-and-them. There is therefore no need for the lessons we learn through our various lifetimes, which is the fundamental purpose of reincarnation.

However, as we do not exist in full Oneness and have bought into the illusion of separation (or we would not be here), reincarnation does exist for us—our souls or essences keep coming back. We do so because it is through our different lifetimes and their varying scenarios and life lessons that we are given opportunities to realign with the unconditional love and unity of the Creator and Oneness we emanated from so we can eventually reemerge fully with it, which is our ultimate raison d’être.

Each of our lives are intended to be stand-alones. When we are born a veil is drawn over our previous lifetimes and what we experienced then. Focusing on or trying to figure out past lives would only have the effect of taking our focus off what we need to learn or reconcile this time around. The wisdom of God, Spirit, or the Universe (however we conceive of the force that created and maintains us and everything since the Big Bang) placed us here and now with close associations to those who are to assist us with the lessons we came here to learn in this lifetime—lessons needing no knowledge of our past lives. However, understanding how past lives and life lessons work can help us appreciate the value of our current issues and situations as well as make peace with the discrepancies between our life circumstances and those of others.

Our current life circumstances can be explained by how we have approached life, the life lessons our souls chose this time around, or the playing out of karma (explained in the article “Further Understanding Karma”). They may also be the result of the need for re-balancing because of experiences gone wrong in the last or a recent lifetime, or for having ignored a past life lesson and choosing exaggerated circumstances to ensure we do get it this time. If we do not learn the lesson with one experience another will be presented to us, again and again if necessary. If we never get it this time around the same issue will crop up in our next lifetime(s), but with the circumstances and relationships likely being different.

Our soul life lesson this time around may be to choose acceptance over judgment and in our life scenarios some people or groups of people around us will be very different than us or hold differing beliefs. Or, we may have a strong character and have the opportunity to be loving and accepting of others rather than exerting control over those around us whose characters are quiet, accepting, or prone to victimization. If we ourselves are prone to victimization, our life lesson may be to overcome this and embrace our empowerment. Until we learn the lesson of this lifetime, the opportunities to choose again will continue to reappear until we get it. When the same situations continue to surface in our lives we usually react with frustration, blame others, or think we are prone to bad luck, but it is simply Spirit offering us opportunities to evolve and choose love, acceptance, self-empowerment, or to  make conscious choices.

Our lesson this time around could also be to make more conscious choices, learn to deal with others with integrity, or overcome jealousy and make peace with something that will not change for us. For example, we may have to learn to be more conscious of who we choose to partner up with, learn to work with integrity so we no longer lose good business opportunities, or be required to reconcile never being wealthy like our friend.

Sometimes negative life experiences are caused by us simply being caught in the crossfire of others’ misalignments from Source, and we may be able to make up for this bad luck in our next lifetime. For example, if we became a displaced citizen, suffered atrocities at the hand of another(s), or were hurt badly or maimed in a disaster, and living those experiences was not part of our soul plan, in making our preparations and choices in the ethereal realm before our next incarnation and in collaboration with those guiding our soul’s journey, we may choose a life of ease and comfort to compensate for the extra suffering we endured. Our life lessons would then be in simple, everyday issues. We would have no conscious memory of this nor of the choices made before we incarnated this lifetime, but we would be at ease with our circumstances. Because of duality playing itself out and of the re-balancing often required, throughout our different lifetimes we have all been wealthy and poor, royal and anonymous, and perpetrators and victims, but we don’t remember any of this.

Even though most of us do not have conscious past-life memories, it is possible that we catch glimpses or feel emotional shadows of a past life event—especially if we had not made peace with it in that lifetime. Furthermore, as we continue to raise our consciousness and move beyond third-dimensional awareness and linear time, the veil that was erected between our past and current lives may start to lift and we would get more glimpses or deja-vu’s of past events that seem real, but wouldn’t make sense in our current life. However, these should not upset or cause us emotional turmoil because of our more evolved state.

It is also possible that a terrible experience from a recent past life that we did not reconcile may negatively affect us in this one causing us to be unable to make peace with a certain issue or situation thereby keeping us from being our Best Self. Uncovering these can help in our emotional healing. Past-life regression has recently gained growing interest among practitioners of various facets of psychology and is sometimes offered as an adjunct to traditional methods, if deemed helpful. However, this is not a common practice and should always be done in a professional setting with a doctor certified in this type of psychology—and only when deemed necessary and for a specific purpose. For most of us, it is sufficient to understand that our various lifetimes offer opportunities to grow spiritually through the life lessons we choose to undertake, as knowing this can help us to reconcile issues we now face, others are grappling with, or the differences between our or others’ circumstances.

Overcoming current life lessons is our soul’s journey on a micro level. Overcoming all concepts of separateness and eventually completely aligning with the Oneness is our soul’s journey on a macro level. Until we achieve that awareness of Oneness, reincarnation is necessary.

Below is a peek into a few other concepts in the book:

Even if one is not interested in lofty spiritual concepts or does not believe in the traditional  God, most of us can acknowledge the existence of an energy or universal force that created everything (including us) in the Universe and holds it all in place. I call it “the creative universal force.” and without us even realizing it we tap into this energy as easily as we breathe―every second of every minute of every day. (Introduction)

Our capacity to love others is in direct relationship to how much we love ourselves. (Chapter 3, What We Can Do About It)

Our Relationships Are Pre-set Soul Contracts: The highest purpose of our relationships is to work out our unconscious influences: our fears, neediness, vulnerabilities, misperceptions, and false notions about love.  (Chapter 5, Relationships)

Free will is our inheritance. However, we are not exercising true free will if we live under the tutelage of unconscious influences. (Chapter 6, Words, Symbols, Rituals, Concepts, Prayers).

We can reconcile our apparent relationship with extra-terrestrials with our belief systems. (Chapter 7, Science).

Our need to reconcile what we put upon the Indigenous peoples is in direct relationship to our country’s successful advancements. (Chapter 9, The Planet and Abundance)

At levels beyond our awareness we chose to be here at this time of ‘The Shift’ to help bring about our and Gais’s Ascensions. (Chapter 10, Ascension).

The Importance of Embracing Unity Consciousness (Conclusion).
