Karma, love and relationships

On social media there are posts from people who want a loving relationship, and they want to meet their Twin Flame, or their Soulmate. These are fairly recent fashionable labels in the history of spirituality. (It needs also to be said that some people are happy not being in a relationship and have no interest or need for one.)

The idea is that with a Twin Flame or Soulmate everything is going to be perfect. The connection is going to be deep, loving, spiritual and mystical, and give the person who wants this kind of relationship everything they want, when they want it, and how they want it. They are going to be so happy. All the time.

Sounds realistic?

It can be interesting to look at relationships through the lens of reincarnation and karma.

Before reincarnating back into the physical, a person will have gone through and reviewed their last life. With the help of spiritual helpers on the inner planes, and perhaps their guide, and possibly a spiritual Master, they will have a look at what they need to learn to develop spiritually. The spiritual helpers, the guide and any Master will be looking at the big picture which may include millions of lives into the future. They will help choose the karma for the next lifetime. They will help choose the karma that person will have including the karma to do with love and relationships. The aim of reincarnating time and again is to learn, develop understanding through experience, and so develop consciousness and become more loving. Life is a school. The spiritual helpers, guide and Master will help choose the gender and the personality to wear for the next lifetime. (You have many personalities through all the lifetimes and usually alternate gender according to the Law of Opposites).

There will be people in the person’s soul family that they tend to come down with into matter. They will come down at the same time to play their part in life. They will have the ideal karma, gender and personality to learn from as they come down as well.

The people you find around you have incarnated before with you, sometimes they have done this many times. Everyone plays different roles in different lifetimes, so two people will be siblings, parents, children, grandparents, friends and enemies. Many permutations of relationships get explored and karma either created or worked through.

When people reincarnate into physical reality again they (usually) go through amnesia so they don’t remember what was said on the inner planes and they don’t recall their last life. The amnesia helps because people just get on with life rather than have information and energy bleeding in that could interfere.

It’s all karma. Two of these people who came down round about at the same time will meet, gaze into each other’s eyes, fall in love and have plenty of energy going forwards and backwards between their chakras as their karma plays out and they form a shared timeline. It’s the best relationship ever, they think. It is not uncommon for two people to be married in past lives say twenty or thirty or so times. They really help each other learn about love and grow bit by bit in love and consciousness through those lifetimes.

Life, and karma is about learning, developing understanding through experience and then growing in consciousness and becoming more loving. The karma someone has, or two people have, may be just to have one relationship for that life. Possibly a very long relationship, where the personalities the souls are wearing match well, and where the personalities help them learn to love each other more.

The karma a person has may be for more than one relationship, perhaps several with all the other souls in the soul family that came down at about the same time. More than one relationship can be a preparation for the special, important relationship of that lifetime; people in the soul family help in the preparation for it.

There are so many different kinds of relationships, and so much to learn about love. It is worth remembering that the different scenarios are agreed Upstairs on the inner planes for each lifetime. Perhaps there was agreement Upstairs that when the two souls were in physical matter they would love each other and have a harmonious relationship, or perhaps they wanted to learn about making up after arguments, or they wanted to learn about self-love and get out of an abusive relationship, perhaps they wanted to learn how to forgive, or how to be compassionate, or selfless, or completely devoted, or mutually supportive and strong as a couple. Perhaps there is a need to learn (possibly lifetime after lifetime) how to look after the same person through terminal illness, or help them through addiction. Perhaps the relationship for one soul is to learn how to let in love, or to love.

Learning about love is definitely not always easy on the personality, even if there is a gradual increase in ability to love, and in consciousness along the way.

There is a difference between being in a relationship to get love and to let in love. There is also a big difference to getting love and being in a relationship to give love and be loving (though not at the expense of themselves, the exception being when one soul so loves another soul that they are willing to sacrifice their own physical existence to protect and save the other person).

Happy love and relationships.

Beyond Enlightenment

Enlightenment is a word that crops up quite a bit in online groups, with quite a few people claiming they are enlightened.

When people experience a rapid spiritual growth, which some people call an awakening whereas other would say they are merely rubbing their eyes, a veil is taken away so those people get to experience the world in a way they never suspected existed. It is as if they step into a new world which operates in a different way to their old world. There is more to this though than meets the (waking) eye.

There are Planes of Consciousness that humanity exists on. These are the zeroth plane, the first plane, the second, and third planes. Then there are the fourth, the fifth and the sixth Planes of Consciousness.

The zeroth, first, second and third planes are the planes where people create karma. The light and energy on the zeroth plane is very slow. There is some astral light, but no mental light. On the first plane the light is a bit quicker and the karma on this plane is different to the zeroth plane, and there is more astral light and a small amount of mental light. On the second plane there is astral light and more mental light than the first, and the spirit of the people, like on the lower planes, is mostly focused outwards away from the inner planes. The third plane is the one where the spirit turns inwards to place its awareness on the inner planes and on God in a solid way. There is more mental light here and less astral. The fourth plane is a very potent plane with mental light and power, which may be used in the outer, physical world. There can a big focus on the inner planes and God. The fifth plane is filled with mental light, and karma is worked through here and not created. Awareness of the spirit and also the personality is automatically focused inside, on God. The sixth plane is also mental light and is even brighter. Again karma is worked through to balance it, so the positive karma balances the negative karma, more or less, and is very much reduced in amount. This is a place of spiritual dreams which is easy to become lost in without a guide, and the focus is on the inner planes and God rather than the external world and material life.

We have on average 8,400,000 lives as a human. We start off in the zeroth plane. We live, experience life, and achieve a tiny incremental increase in consciousness, and then we die. Next lifetime, we start off at a slightly higher level of consciousness than the previous life. The process of reincarnation goes on and on. As it does, our level of consciousness keeps on increasing. It keeps on doing this all up the planes, and the consciousness of someone on the sixth plane is very different to the level of consciousness they had when they were on the zeroth plane all those millions of lifetimes ago. Over the many lifetimes, we build up our ability to handle the light. Someone on the sixth plane could not have been able to handle the light and energy that they are immersed in now, when they were on the zeroth, or first, second and third planes, and in fact all the way up including the fifth.

As part of this increase of consciousness that comes from experiencing and learning from Life (which is an expression of God), there are times when our karma that we have arranged to work with before incarnating, includes having a veil of awareness removed so we partially see a bit more of what Life is really about. There are many veils to be removed, and as each one is removed we get to see into Life deeper and deeper. These veils are removed at points as we go through our many, many lives. In a life when the plan is to remove a veil to move us along our spiritual path, our guide or guides decides on the best timing to do this, taking into account our mind and our personality’s ability to handle losing one old version of reality, and replacing it with a new version, as it can be quite stressful for a mind. This new perception helps us to see the reality we live in, the new dream we live in, in a more spiritual way.

A veil removed in the zeroth or first plane will enable the person to experience the light on those planes, and the information, knowledge and understanding in it, but not help them to experience what is on the higher planes. Building that experience is a step by step by step process over the many lifetimes.

Occasionally someone who has a veil removed and experiences an awakening, or really a mini-awakening, will experience reality in a new way, and feel different and say they are enlightened. But really there are many veils to be removed over many lifetimes. The notion of enlightenment needs to be put into perspective. No matter where anyone is on the path, there is always more to learn and experience.

When a person has made it up to near the top of the sixth Plane of Consciousness usually (or occasionally the fifth) and so there karma is nearly balanced and much reduced, a Perfect Master will make that person God-realised. They unshackle the consciousness from being in the Illusion of Creation, wake up the soul and the consciousness, and place it in Universal consciousness. They make it aware of God, and the soul’s true reality. Usually the physical body is dropped at this point as it is no longer needed unless that person have a role to fulfil down here in physical Creation.

This is a big awakening, and the new level of light and love coming through gives a new understanding and knowing (and spiritual common sense), but there is more.

The Divine is made up of Divine Journeys, each infinitely big compared to the one before, each with brighter and more intense love and light, each being an aspect of God who is Infinite. Once on the Divine Journeys, a soul can journey through the increasing levels of love and light, further and further along the Divine Journeys. All the way to God in its highest form.

With each Divine Journey comes new awareness and learning and change. New enlightenment if you like. What happens at the end of the journey? You would have to be there to find out.

As for removal of the veils at this present time, it is quite an event for a number of reasons. There are cycles of Ages. In this Age that we live in, the Kali Yuga Age is the darkest and slowest one, where souls get to rest and digest the light they have previously experienced, normally not a lot goes on. But it looks like God has decided to speed things up a bit, as the last Avatar, Meher Baba instigated a plan of massive change, with a huge input of spiritual energy, to speed things up a lot. He indicated he had made all the major decisions for the next 1,200 years, and set the timeline for the next 3,000 years. The five Perfect Masters are making sure this is happening, and also, the first Divine Journey is actually coming down into Creation and down the planes. It should take about 1,200 years for it to reach the bottom of the zeroth Plane of Consciousness. This will bring about thorough change in the world, in the Universe, and in Creation. What is more, the second and the third Divine Journey are due to come into Creation as well and this should take 3,000 years to complete. Life will be completely different to how we experience it now, and humanity will have changed hugely as well, with a great many more chakras than it has now.

The first Divine Journey can be considered as being like gold light, and a type of Divine Love that can be thought of as Unconscious Bliss. Think of bubbles of gold light falling down the Planes of Consciousness, falling into peoples’ hearts and minds, carrying tremendous energy, bliss, inspirational and creative thoughts and dreams, which generally shake things Up and move everything forward. There are Divine guides like personal trainers for everyone which are very different to previous guides so it is useful to forget everything you think you know about guides, because they won’t be like that. It is “All Change”.

Then there are souls incarnating from now on that are more awake than the souls currently down here, who will be bringing about more change and carrying a lot of energy.

Additionally, humanity is having its third eye opened, and an increase in consciousness in humanity is taking place for everyone. More chakras are being placed in humans, which means new ways of living, doing and being, as the new sixth Root Race starts up since the old fifth Root Race, the Aryan Root Race, is coming to an end. Hence the fragmentation of human life nowadays and general breakdown, chaos, change and new beginnings.

This is definitely an amazing and interesting time to be alive on this singularly unique planet out of all the possible planets to incarnate into, in a human life.

Hopefully this puts the notion of enlightenment into context. Learning and spiritual development into who and what you are as a soul happens through the process of Life and God-realisation. The concept of “enlightenment” is pointless, empty and has a lot of glamour, and is best forgotten. Best to focus on doing what feels right and loving to keep moving and learning on your spiritual path.

Just so you know, you can use your innate, spiritual abilities to check out concepts that you come across, and you can check out what people say. Using your third eye or your intuition, you might like to take a look at the concept of “enlightenment”, the one found in the New Age world.  To me it looks all grey and mushy. There is nothing to it, just a lot of astral and mental energy that people have fed it with. When a thoughtform is like that, it is best to disregard it and find what looks and feel true, filled with love and light.

Footnote:

If you are interested, there is a wonderful map of how souls progress through the planes of consciousness and through the Divine Journeys and their states of mind or Mind in “God Speaks” by Meher Baba. There is also a tremendous amount of other high quality information in it (and amazing energy). If you feel drawn to get this book, it is definitely a good idea to get it.

Give Your Computer, Tablet and Phone an Energy Spring Clean, Now

Spring in the Northern hemisphere, flowers are appearing and it’s a time for spring cleaning. Open the house or flat, let in the fresh air. Dust, clean, polish and throw out what is old energy (and recycle).

Get rid of the residues of old stagnant energy, and let in fresh, lively and vibrant energy. Buy some flowers and lift the energy of the place. It’ll help your energy feel a lot better and you’ll feel happy.

Your phone. Your computer (laptop, tablet). What about the energy of these? Do they ever get a clean?

We wash clothes so they are clean. People will do what it takes to clean crystals and recharge them. The electronic devices, we recharge, but cleaned? Usually not.

If you are sensitive, intuitive and / or your third eye is open, then take a moment to feel into or look at your phone, laptop etc. If you can sense lovely energy or negativity in a place or a person or objects, then you can sense it in these.

Your laptop, phone, tablet or computer is a physical object, and physical objects can hold energy. People use their phones to access the internet and the websites on this. They store apps on their phones. They make calls and receive calls from people and organisations.

In the physical world, if you have a working relationship with someone else, or a friendship, or a dislike, or a deeper relationship with them, then you will have some karma with them. You will also have cordings between you and the other person. The quality of the cordings will depend on the kind of relationship and how loving (or otherwise) it is. if you imagine you have, say, nine circles around you, then that person will be on one of the circles, either close in, or further away. The closer they are, the more they have access to your system, and the more you are in their energy field as well. As you could imagine, some people can have very full circles, with people having access into their emotions, thoughts and energy, so that their space isn’t their own. This can make it difficult to get quiet mental space and space for meditation. A person with a full space can have a lot of input coming in that isn’t theirs but which is really somebody else’s. This is why doing healing meditations to clean up your aura and chakras, and space around you is so important, as is practising buttoning up chakras and protecting your aura.

This physical world was the situation before phones and before computers and the internet. The life we now live has changed.

We know that physical objects can have energy, including computers, etc.. But so too can things in a virtual world or in cyberspace (can’t use the word “objects”, but I could perhaps use the phrase “virtual entities” because it describes them so well).

When someone has an idea for a website or app or service they have firstly a mental idea, which is mental energy. They work on their concept and put in mental energy and also put in some emotion, which is emotional energy. The concept becomes a virtual reality and has in it mental and emotional energy, which builds and builds. It literally becomes an entity. As more energy is built up, it can form a basic intelligence and spirit, and emotional qualities and can exist on the astral levels. As the concept goes live on the internet and has more and more users who bring in their own mental and emotional energy, the entity grows and morphs, developing it’s own nature. You can sense the energy of a website, app or service intuitively, with your third eye, or imagine it as a ball or cloud of energy, and you can look at it and notice how you feel about it.

Some apps, websites and services are benign and look and feel good. The cordings from them, like coloured strands or ropes will look and feel OK. Other websites, apps and services don’t have your best interests at heart. They may not be what they seem. It could be the case that you are the product and they want your data, perhaps the site has been designed to hook you in, or that it is addictive to be on, or your opinions are surreptitiously being swayed or nudged. Or it pushes negativity. Some sites and apps can act vampirically and take energy from you for a little snack (astral entities particularly like emotional energy or etheric life energy). These will intuitively feel and look awful, and the cordings will look unpleasant as well.

Things in cyberspace and in the virtual world have mental and emotional energy and are real.

You can receive positive energy form an app, site or service, or message or email, and this projects positive and loving energy into your system. And it will feel pleasant to wonderful. You can receive negative energy, and that goes into your system, as you are likely to be wide open energetically sitting in front of your laptop. And you will feel that negative energy.

There is a lot of things on the internet that carry some negativity, or that can host negative emotional and mental energy, and negative astral entities. It is very easy for a pristine new phone, laptop, computer or tablet with clean energy to build up negative energy in the circuits and develop into an astral home for the astral critters or bigger astral entities. The astral space can seem bigger than the physical space the object takes up. Doorways can be formed in the astral space as well, letting in uninvited guests.

It is really worth cleaning up devices that connect to the internet, every now and again, and also after going onto a site with a negative feel, or after being on the receiving end of some negative energy.

A negative input of energy can happen if someone has placed malware onto your device or hacked into it, as this will form a negative cording and a conduit for downloads of negative gunk from a negative source. It’s a virtual jungle out there.

It is possible to clean up the energy so that your experience of being on your device is positive. The first step is to identify what is going on in your device, and you can be creative about how you do this in a way that is easy to pick out information from.

Imagining your device as a house. What does the building look like? What are the rooms like? Are the doors open or closed? Are there a lot of doorways or just a few? How tidy and how clean is the house? Are the rooms well furnished? Plenty of light in there? Or dark and full of shadows? A fresh smell, or a musty, old smell? Any old files stuffed in the attic or down in the basement? What is the atmosphere like in the house? Fresh and vibrant? Calm and peaceful? What’s it like? Pleasant sounds? Is the house clear, or do there appear to be things living in it that you would prefer not to be there? Any blobs? Any faces? Any ghost like shadows?

Perhaps some changes need to be made, rooms cleared, curtains opened, and windows cleaned so the light can flood in. Doorways can be closed, and sealed if need be, and cut flowers in vases placed on tables. (In physical life flowers actually do radiate positive energy freely and selflessly out into the world.)

Can you imagine what your device would look and feel like if it was cleared and cleaned? What would your experience be like of using such a device?

Here is a meditation to help clear up the energy of your device. The first step will be to adjust your own energy first before working on the device. The second step will be to use a blue rose to bring in the right kind of energy to clear and protect your device.

Read this first then try it. In a quiet enough place and in a comfortable position, close your eyes. Take several long and gentle breaths, gently exhaling with each.

Imagine roots growing out of your feet, as deep as they can go into the earth.

Allow nourishing and healing energy from the earth to flow up your roots and into your feet. Allow this energy to flow up into your body, in its own time, all the way up to the top of your head.

Now let gentle and soft very bright white light flow down from high up, directly above you, as if from a white sun. Let this light flow onto your head. Some of this light will flow over you, and some will flow in, down through your centres or chakras in your head. The very bright white light feels very pure, still, and silent (like being in a gentle snowfall).

The very bright white light keeps flowing down your body, down through all your energy centres. It keeps on flowing, down in to your legs, and down to your toes. The very bright white light keeps flowing down, adjusting your energy, dissolving what shouldn’t be there and lifting your energy.

Down through this white light flows a white rose, with the petals open. This white rose flows down to your heart centre in the middle of your chest and stays there, radiating out its essence into you on all levels.

For the next part, have your device in front of you. Read this first and then try.

Again close your eyes. The very bright white light keeps on flowing down. Within this flow of light, flows down a beautiful blue rose, with petals open. It is filled with blue energy. The blue rose comes down to settle in your heart centre in the middle of your chest. One copy of the blue rose, like a hologram, flows through your arm to your hand, and another copy of the blue rose flows down the other arm to the other hand. Placing your hands over the device, imagine these roses flowing down forming a single blue rose which lands on and then goes into the device. Imagine the blue energy from the rose flowing out and around your device, covering it, and then flowing through all parts of your device.  As it does this, it clears, dissolves or moves out astral energies, doorways, entities and qualities. The blue rose and its energy clears, removes, and resets the energy. Imagine the blue rose and it’s energy at work for a minute if you can, as white light continues to pour through you. If the blue rose and its blue energy seems to disappear, let another blue rose come down through the very bright white light, and let another round of cleaning and resetting occur.

If you get tired, stop have a break, and go again when you are ready.  Repeat if you need to.

When the blue rose and the blue energy have cleaned up your device, then become aware of your own energy, and light the very bright white light flow down for a short while, and let the earth energy flow up at the same time.

When you feel complete, let the images of your roots and the white light fade, and open you eyes.

If you want to be really thorough, you can imagine your device as having nine layers, and with the blue rose and blue light, you work on each layer in turn from top to bottom. Rest as you need to.

Another variation is to visualize blue energy from the rose flowing out from your device to wherever on the internet negative energy came from.

 

A Soul’s Journey down into Creation, and then back Up to God

Trying to talk about souls can be tricky, and fascinating at the same time. Souls originate on the Divine Journeys, in the Beyond, which is outside time, which is part of God. Souls are part of God. This is not a straightforward concept as it is so unlike our everyday reality.

When the Avatar comes down into creation every 400 to 700 years in major and minor incarnations, souls, or dropsouls follow the Avatar down through the Divine Journeys into creation (or are poached, which is another story). In creation, with its planes of consciousness (0th, 1st … 6th), there is time, and karma. As time goes by, creation is ever changing and developing, and souls grow as they journey through creation.

Souls fall over time, to the bottom of the zeroth plane, the slowest and least conscious plane. As souls fall, they experience a massive separation from the Divine, from God, and from their own true nature, and the Divine level of their consciousness. This is a shock that remains with the soul, even though their consciousness falls from this exalted state to zero; to a very slow, non-existent state. There remains a deep sadness and grief that is difficult to put a finger on.

Simultaneously, there is an aspect of the soul, outside time, that has experienced and completed everything on the inner planes and on the Divine Journeys. This is a tricky concept and it isn’t really necessary to understand it as it wouldn’t influence the journey of the soul in any case.

The You reading this, in creation, is the extension of soul energy, that is in time. The aspect of your soul on the Divine Journeys, will not be necessarily aware of what is going on with the personality you in creation, as the light is so captivating there. What this aspect of soul Up there is missing out on though is experience of life in creation, and the slow frequency light down here, particularly the dark of the zeroth plane, and also, emotion. Souls come down here to experience emotion.

Souls and divine beings that stay in the Divine Journeys have no idea of what the grand adventure we call life is like down here in creation.

They miss out on the journey down, and they miss out on the journey up the planes and the experiences they gain in this Illusion. Souls with an aspect of themselves down here get to experience the many lifetimes as rock and metal with the heating, flowing, crushing, and erosion, and so on, while having only infinitesimal consciousness.

Then there are the many lifetimes in plant form in the many different environments. They grow, use physical light, put down roots (or live off other plants and sometimes creatures), they can be eaten. Open to the sky they experience weather and starlight. Those in the water experience those environments. They experience long or short lives, fire, drought and so on. With flowers and blossoms they irradiate scents, colour and energy. (From an energy point of view, plants have a fascinating existence.) The consciousness level is a somewhat greater than a rock or metal.

Still on the zeroth plane of consciousness, the soul has many lifetimes in animal form; as worms, insects, fish, birds, reptiles, and mammals. With each change of lifeform there is an incremental change in the level of consciousness. The form that a soul takes depends on the level of consciousness that needs to be experienced. A soul going through the many animal forms experiences a huge variety of conditions, and events that happen to them. They experience instincts and intelligence. They experience emotions (some scientists may disagree, but anyone who has spent time with animals or has a pet will know when an animal is happy or sad or scared, and so on). Animals experience being on their own and in other lives, living as part of a society or group. They eat, sometimes hunt, sometimes get eaten (alive!). Animals communicate and cooperate.

Then come the sub-human lives that are a cross-over point to being human on the zeroth plane. In all this, the soul grows in consciousness, and stores the accumulation of experiences in part of itself.

As a human, lifetime after lifetime up until the top of the third plane of consciousness, the soul builds karma, and then balances it or burns it off from then on up to the top of the sixth plane. As a human the soul gets to experience the full range of what it can mean to be a human being, from the darkest events to the most loving and light. The soul experiences life in a detached way, as it is still very much in the Divine Journeys, while the person down here will experience life through personality, spirit, and the accumulation of all those vast numbers of lifetimes that occurred from rock, plant, and animal upwards. So people can be incredibly animalistic in their thinking and behaviour as their animal past comes to the forefront. This is particularly so in a human lifetime that has a leaning to the Dark Lodge and the negative dark, rather than a lifetime leaning to the light or Light Lodge. Part of spirituality is diminishing or transforming the old animalistic heritage that is rather like very old baggage.

Meditation and doses of light really help here. However, to really appreciate what the light is like, and what Divine energies are like, being in the muck and the mud, and the pain and struggle that happens in creation, provides the contrast. Sometimes to know what something is like you need to experience the opposite. It also provides the crucible through which a soul gains the experience and learning, in the end, transforming it into its full beauty, and with quite a story to tell back on the Divine Journeys.

Reincarnation, karma, gender and sexuality

At this moment in time issues to do with being female and being male, and sexuality are important as a lot of spiritual energy is flowing in to move them forward (which usually means a bit of a shakedown and a lot of karma and emotions gone through until a new balance is achieved). Gender and sexuality from a reincarnation point of view can give us a new perspective:

In human lifetimes, souls take on lives with different genders so that different karma can be worked on. The spiritual law of opposites can apply so that a male (genetically) will next life have a female (genetically) lifetime. A female will have a next lifetime as a male. This way a soul has experience as each sex, and of what it means to be that sex.  A soul will experience lifetimes where their physical anatomy is atypical of male or female anatomy.

A soul will also have lifetimes experiencing different sexualities, and lifetimes where they feel they are female in a male body, and a male in a female body, and so on, along with feeling male in a male body, and female in a female body. To the soul, this is all experience over the many, many lifetimes.

What would it be like if you are female now and suddenly remembered how you were as a male? Or how about if you are male now and remembered how you were, what life was like in a previous female life?

Usually people don’t get to remember their past lives or feel them. When a soul incarnates there is a process where the soul enters the energy field around the planet through the ring-pass-not. When the soul goes through this there is a forgetting, an amnesia so that any information that would interfere with this life being lived afresh is blocked. Because of this we don’t get to remember what it is like to be a female or be a male, or to have a specific sexuality or a lifetime when sexuality wasn’t important to us.

There is a lot in here if you read in between the lines that can be food for thought.

The aspect of your soul on the Divine Journeys, will not be necessarily aware of what is going on with the personality you in creation, as the light is so captivating there. What this aspect of soul Up there is missing out on though is experience of life in creation, and the slow frequency light down here, particularly the dark of the zeroth plane, and also, emotion. Souls come down here to experience emotion.

Souls and divine beings that stay in the Divine Journeys have no idea of what the grand adventure we call life is like down here in creation.

They miss out on the journey down, and they miss out on the journey up the planes and the experiences they gain in this Illusion. Souls with an aspect of themselves down here get to experience the many lifetimes as rock and metal with the heating, flowing, crushing, and erosion, and so on, while having only infinitesimal consciousness.

Then there are the many lifetimes in plant form in the many different environments. They grow, use physical light, put down roots (or live of other plants and sometimes creatures), they can be eaten. Open to the sky they experience weather and starlight. Those in the water experience those environments. They experience long or short lives, fire, drought and so on. With flowers and blossoms they irradiate scents, colour and energy. (From an energy point of view, plants have a fascinating existence.) The consciousness level is a somewhat greater than a rock or metal.

Still on the zeroth plane of consciousness, the soul has many lifetimes in animal form; as with worms, insects, fish, birds, reptiles, and mammals. With each change of lifeform there is an incremental change in the level of consciousness. The form that a soul takes depends on the level of consciousness that needs to be experienced. A soul going through the many animal forms, and experiences a huge variety of conditions, and events that happen to them. They experience instincts and intelligence. They experience emotions (a scientist may disagree, but anyone who has spent time with animals or has a pet will know when an animal is happy or sad or scared, and so on). Animals experience being on their own and in other lives, living as part of a society or group. They eat, sometimes hunt, sometimes get eaten (alive!). Animals communicate.

Then come the sub-human lives that are a cross-over point to being human on the zeroth plane. In all this, the soul grows in consciousness, and stores the accumulation of experiences in part of itself.

As a human, lifetime after lifetime up until the top of the third plane of consciousness, the soul builds, karma, and then balances it or burns it off from then on up to the top of the sixth plane. As a human the soul gets to experience the full range of what it can mean to be a human being, from the darkest events to the most loving and light. The soul experiences life in a detached way, as it is still very much in the Divine Journeys, while the person down here will experience life through personality, spirit, and the accumulation of all those vast numbers of lifetimes that occurred from rock, plant, animal upwards. So people can be incredibly animalistic in their thinking and behaviour as their animal past comes to the forefront. This is particularly so in a human lifetime that has a leaning to the Dark Lodge and the negative dark, rather than a lifetime leaning to the light or Light Lodge. Part of spirituality is diminishing or transforming the old heritage that is rather like very old baggage.

Meditation and doses of light really help here. However, to really appreciate what the light is like, and what Divine energies are like, being in the muck an the mud, and the pain and struggle that happens in creation, provides the contrast. Sometimes to know what something is like you need to experience the opposite. It also provides the crucible through which a soul gains the experience and learning, in the end, transforms into its full beauty, and with quite a story to tell back on the Divine Journeys.
