Death, Spirituality, Reincarnation And Extreme Weather

I read from a few sources on the Internet recently that over 150,000 people die each day. That seems quite a lot of souls going to the inner planes each day for a rest, to review their life and prepare for the next life. Death is the soul dropping the body so it can go on the next step of its journey.

The number 150,000 plus deaths per day will go up for a while when there are things like epidemics, famines, droughts and natural disasters. Also this figure is human deaths; souls of humans dropping the physical shell and going on. It doesn’t take into account the souls dropping the physical forms of animals, birds, reptiles, fish and insects and so on around the world each day, and remember animals and other creatures also get caught up in natural disasters. For the esoterically minded we could include those souls in plant forms as those plants die or are destroyed, and souls going through the mineral experience.

These souls mentioned above are souls leaving the Earth prior to reincarnation. There are also souls coming into the Earth and taking physical form; there are births as well as deaths. In human terms, the number of births is greater than the number of deaths, and this is for a spiritual reason. Souls want to come here because of the intense spiritual energy at the moment and they want a taste of it.

I mentioned natural disasters as a cause of death. It isn’t the biggest cause over a long period of time, usually. Natural disasters grab the headlines as they are so dramatic.

A big component of natural disasters is the weather, and the weather is becoming more extreme.

There seems to have been more storms, tornadoes, hurricanes and typhoons, more flooding, and more high temperatures, winds and fires than before.

Some places which are susceptible to extreme weather and natural disasters may not be good places to live much longer if things become more intense (which is likely).

It is useful to take an energetic look at the weather. From an esoteric point of view air has air elementals in it like small devas. Then if you look at a hurricane you can see the big deva in it. The deva is on a mission and marshals the air elementals to do what the big deva sets out to do, and big devas can carry a lot of power. It is the same with typhoons.

Next time you see a tornado check out the deva and the smaller elementals within it. Notice the intelligence of the deva and try to get a sense of what it is aiming to achieve.

There are elementals in water as well, and in a storm the deva of the storm will orchestrate these water elementals along with the air elementals. With flooding there will be a big deva in charge of the flow of water.

With regards to fire, there are fire elementals. (In old esoteric literature these are called salamanders, not to be confused with the amphibian version.) There will be a fire type deva in charge of the fire elementals  in a fire. The deva drives the fire for its own reason and to achieve its own ends.

From a spiritual, energy point of view, the air, water and fire elementals, with the devas in charge of them are doing a job to change and improve the energy of the Earth. They clean up the energy.

The mental and astral energy they clean up can be slow frequency, unpleasant and very old, coming from the Lemurian, the Atlantean and the recent Aryan Root race periods of time. This energy can also be very recent. For instance, as an example, imagine what the vibe or energy of the place was before Los Angeles was built, or before New York was built, or London was built (have to go back way before the Romans arrived). Now get a feel for the energy of Los Angeles, New York and London right now. Which was fresher, clearer, healthier? Before or right now?

The same can be said for any built up human habitation around the world, with its layering of astral energy and mental energy as people exude or pump out their emotions and thoughts, and carry out actions filled with the energy of their intentions.

We live in a material age which is fairly selfish and animalistic. This age isn’t noted for a way of living based on principles and loving respect for others and the environment. Such an age would create a different astral and mental residue to the one humanity has recently been creating. Hence there is some clearing up to do, and this is one of the roles devas and elementals do. They aren’t concerned what humans think about this. The Earth needs to change, and they are making sure the change happens.

Who do you think has told them to clean up the Earth?

 

 

 

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.

How your karma and the Law of Opposites helps you grow

We reincarnate time and time again to experience life and grow in consciousness and understanding. Karma gives us experiences in Life through which our souls can learn and develop.

There are some spiritual laws that show up in karma that people have in a particular lifetime. The spiritual aim of the game of life is to get through the allotted karma for that life. One law is the Law of Saturation.  This means that a person gets saturated with one type of situation or experience in their life repeatedly until the soul is saturated with it. Or they may have as many lives as is required of a certain type of experience. For instance, a person can have quite a few lives (say, thirty or more) where they get to look after one particular person and develop their love and their heart centre. Once the person/soul has had enough then they move onto different karma with different situations happening.

Another law that applies a lot to karma is the Law of Opposites. This law often occurs in reincarnation. As an example, in one lifetime a soul can be in a female body, in the next lifetime the soul will be in a male body.

Another example, in one lifetime the soul can be in a personality that is very wealthy. In the next lifetime the soul can be in an existence where it experiences poverty. (The karma is different if a person has used their wealth for the benefit of others rather than being selfish). The Law of Opposites balances things out nicely, and to the soul it is all experience to learn from. That doesn’t mean to say that the personality enjoys the experience, as their attitudes and opinion of what they are going through depends on what the personality mind is like. If they have a “glass half-full” kind of mind, they will enjoy it.

Yet another example, a  person/soul can be an aggressor one lifetime and a victim in a future lifetime, quite likely with the same soul. Souls have tended to come into creation in soul families so a soul is likely to have come across the same souls repeatedly, but in different circumstances (friend, enemy, brother, sister, parent, child and so on). On the inner planes, a higher aspect of ourselves will arranging who comes down to do what and with whom. What goes on down here in creation is our karma being worked out with our fellow souls being involved in the goings-on as well.

The Law of Opposites can show up in other ways in the kind of lifetimes we have. Souls have lifetimes where they are linked to the dark lodge, where they learn about and experience lives getting up to no good. On the opposite, souls have lifetimes being linked to the white lodge, and doing good. The karma gets balanced out – usually.

Souls have lives where they are brilliantly clever, and lives where they are slow thinking. They have lives where the soul experiences what it is like to be physically beautiful and lives where they are not physically beautiful.

Where a soul has hurt or killed others in one or more previous lives, in other lives they do the opposite, in a healing capacity or saving lives, perhaps sacrificing their own lives to do so. In these ways, karmic debts are paid.

Souls will have lives where they are not interested in spirituality, and lives where they are (like this one if you are reading this).

There are many other examples of the rich variety of experiences and lives that the Law of opposites generates. What has been mentioned above is only a small part of what is possible, and doesn’t even include examples of lives a soul will experience in the mineral, plant or animal kingdoms.

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.

Reincarnation, karma and mental illness

Life is all about souls going on a spiritual journey in Creation, gaining experience and understanding, lifetime after lifetime, until God-realization, when the soul rejoins the Divine.

Humans are born, live and die many, many times in the reincarnatory process. Before being human, souls have many, many lifetimes in the mineral, plant and animal kingdoms. As souls go through these lifetimes they make karma. The karma can be positive or negative, it can be physical, astral or mental karma.

There are planes of consciousness in Creation, the zeroth (0th) plane, the first plane, the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth planes. Souls start off at the bottom of the zeroth plane and go up through the planes as they reincarnate.

Souls build up karma on the zeroth, first, second and third planes and then start to really balance and reduce it on the fourth, and particularly the fifth and sixth planes.

In the process of Life through many, many lives, souls experience a near infinite number of situations that Life can provide. In this way souls learn, gain understanding of Life, of themselves and of what God is not, and what God is. Souls also increase in consciousness.

In human lifetimes a soul experiences being sane and stable in some lives. In other lifetimes a soul will experience what we currently think of as a mental illness. All souls in human form will have experienced many mental illnesses in their lifetimes. Suicidal thoughts, illnesses related to food, depression, anxiety, the various addictions, fear and panic attacks, psychopathic tendencies, sociopathic tendencies, narcissism, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, schizophrenia, dementia, amnesia, madness, and so on. We have all been there in some lifetime.

Future Positive for Humanity and Spirituality

great future 4

This planet earth and the rest of creation is always developing, always moving forward. All form, all animals, plants and minerals are continually developing energetically. As time goes on new physical forms are needed to hold the souls and be ideal vehicles for spiritual growth. So new lifeforms  come into existence, and older lifeforms become extinct. (This theme was written about in the Alice Bailey books in the 1920’s, and also mentioned in Meher Baba’s book “God Speaks”.)

Humans also continually develop. What is humanity now is energetically more developed than humanity in history, and in ancient history. Big shifts in human development come about with the emergence of root races. The first Root race was the Adamic root race. The second root race was the Hyperborean root race. The third root race was the Lemurian, then there was the Atlantean root race. This present root race is the Aryan root race. With each root there is a shift in the chakra that is the focus. In the first Root race the focus was on the lowest centre which is the base centre. In the second root race the focus of energy was on the sexual centre. In the Lemurian root race the focus was on the solar plexus as that was developed along with emotions. In the fourth root race, the Atlantean root race, the focus of development was the heart centre, though that root race didn’t end so well. The fifth root race focus in the Aryan root race was the throat centre. The fifth root race is coming to an end. This shows up by fragmentation of timelines and this manifests itself with what appears to be chaos, change, uncertainty, alienation and breakdown of societies. Usually a root race ends with 98% of humanity dying and the new beginning of the next root race starting through the remaining 2% along with a new type of human body appearing. The Atlantean root race ended dramatically with a flood.

As humanity moves into the sixth root race perhaps the transition can be gentler. There will be more root races in the distant future. As a simplification, each later root race can hold and can function with a higher vibration of energy than the root race before. Just for information, as a soul has many reincarnations, someone can have had lifetimes in the Adamic, in the Hyperborean, they could have had Lemurian lives (feel a strong draw to visit Australia, or Hawaii?), they could have had Atlantean lives (like doing transplants or genetic modifications?), as well as Aryan lives.

In humanity as in all of creation, as time goes on the body, or the form becomes more refined, and able to handle increasingly stronger spiritual energies. The form can have more chakras or centres than existed in earlier versions of the body. So your body, aura and chakras will function in a more complex and subtle way compared to the body of someone who lived a few hundred thousand years ago. When you next reincarnate, your new human body will likely be the new, sixth root race version with 100 or more chakras or centres, updated devas in the body, and other new features. So you will perceive, feel and think, and then behave and communicate differently to how you do now.

It is new energy that moves humanity and the rest of creation onwards. On the Divine Journeys outside of creation there are many forms of love, each higher one more intense, more virulent than the one before. The Divine Journeys hold the energy and what could be described as templates for how creation needs to be now and for the future. Bit by bit, these templates and energy are injected into creation so that there is a gradual progression and gradual change. Each bit of energy injected represents a future creation, so it can be thought of as futuristic energy.

Healing can be thought of as an input of energy, and often a taking away of old energy. What moves people on, what heals them, is the input of the love and energy from the Divine Journeys, though it is usually filtered, becoming much less intense as it comes down the planes of consciousness.

It isn’t energy linked to the old root races, like Atlantean energy or Lemurian energy, that brings about a forward growth. That just takes people sideways or backwards. Old or traditional energy techniques just don’t do it, though there might be a past life connection to the type of energy or old “healing” technique.

It’s always one wash after another of new energy that brings about healing and a forward movement.

The energy coming into the earth and into creation right now will be out of date in the next root race, and newer love and energy will be required to move Life on. So healing will be different again.

If reincarnation were true, how would you live your life?

The vast majority of people don’t have evidence that they ever had past lives. Only a small fraction of the population have any flashbacks or memory of previous lives. Past lives get mentioned and talked about in the media, but for most people, past lives and reincarnation are not part of their world view. Some people have explored past lives in workshops. A degree of healing can come from this as what happens in past lives (if they are true), can carry over into this lifetime. So if some grisly event occurred in a past life, it can still affect a person’s health in this one, and in future ones (if reincarnation is a fact). Then there are times when workshop goers like to hear that they were king or queen or ruler, or held an important position someplace. Though I’d say the most important lifetime a person is in is this one. In most circumstances, remembering past lives isn’t all that enjoyable. For instance, we have all had lives as animals. Nature programmes occasionally show just how cruel and painful those lives can be in a world with predators.

The concept of reincarnation isn’t strong in the Western world. The story goes that it was removed (in dubious circumstances) from what became the accepted knowledge of Christianity in the Council of Nicea. In this Council, the Roman Emperor Constantine stopped bloodshed by making the Roman Empire, Christian. Here were the beginnings of the Roman Catholic Church. Christianity then went on to shape religious and philosophical thought throughout Europe. The heritage of this was taken to other countries that European countries had dealings in. Reincarnation isn’t something people think about in places influenced by Christianity.

In the end it doesn’t matter what we believe about reincarnation, as Reality will do what Reality does. It is untouched by our beliefs or the limits of our understanding.

If reincarnation is true, then linked to this is death. Also linked is birth. Then there is karma.

In my own view of life, I take for granted the existence of Perfect Masters and the Avatar. These individuals work with creation, with karma and the lifetimes that souls reincarnated through.

There is very detailed information about reincarnation in a book called God Speaks by Meher Baba. There is a description of how a soul or dropsoul comes down from the Divine Journeys into creation. It describes how a soul taking the human path drops down to the bottom of the zeroth plane of consciousness, with literally zero consciousness, and progresses lifetime after lifetime, through gaseous then mineral lifetimes, then plant and then animal lifetimes, then the human lifetimes starting on the zeroth plane before really getting going on the first plane. At each type of life, there are approximately 8,400,000 lifetimes. With each lifetime comes an incremental increase in consciousness. (It is fair to say that a soul on the lower planes will think that they know everything, and say so. By the time they have made it up to the 5th and 6th plane, they realize they don’t actually know or understand much of life, the universe and Everything. That’s souls for you.)

Birth after birth, life after life, death after death, karma is built up (physical karma, astral karma and mental karma). In the 4th, 5th and 6th planes, the karma is worked through. Or it is burnt off by being around a Perfect Master or Avatar. In God Speaks, Sanskaras or impressions linked to lifetimes are mentioned, and that is another story.

Then eventually the soul, the person is made God Realized, and the journey back to the Source is made, and the soul has a great story to tell. After that? Probably a different adventure to go on. Souls are all about learning and becoming more.

Creation is big, so there are plenty of places to reincarnate into. We used to think that this universe was it. But now we know, theoretically at least, about the multiverse, due to string and membrane theory. That means there are many different situations in which life of various types can exist in. Present humanity on this earth doesn’t know all there is to know about life, about what is possible in a multiverse. In God Speaks it is said that there are 18,000 earths that humanity exists on. This earth though, is the only one which is physical home to the Avatar and the Perfect Masters, though their influence and work is felt throughout. We have all had lifetimes on other planets as well as this one, including human lifetimes.

With regards to reincarnating into a life, the soul places its energy into a newly forming lifeform. In humans, the soul’s energy goes into the heart centre to start with. The energy of the mother changes to accommodate the new life, and a continual and ongoing energetic communication occurs. This happens lifetime after lifetime. This is an absolutely massive topic to explore.

Death is also a massive topic. We have all died countless times, and there is usually huge fear in people about dying. There is a lot of healing and change to occur so that we even begin to see death as a state to go through onto the next life.

The soul usually withdraws its energy and awareness from the lifeform as it is time to move onto the next part of the journey. Sometimes the physical elemental in the physical body fights this, and holds onto the energy. Usually the heart stops and the centres close down and the soul leaves the physical body.

Before death, the third eye centre can be seen to close down in preparation. The start of this closing down can be days before. The timing is based on karma. With karma, there are three kinds. There is positive, negative and opportunistic karma. With the opportunistic karma, events can go either way; negative or positive. So some deaths are opportunistic rather than the other kinds of karma. The third eye will show the probability of death, and can reopen if the opportunistic event has gone positive. Close shaves can be like this. A death can be positive karma, as the person has fulfilled all of their karma for that lifetime, and the soul withdraws its energy so the spirit of the person can have a deserved rest on the inner planes, an esoteric cup of tea, a review of events in that lifetime, and a meet up with old friends. They then can reincarnate into their next lifetime with a new set of karma to work through.

I’ve written this in a matter of fact way. With most deaths, there is a lot of emotion. Spiritually, we can know what is happening, but the emotions are something different. For the person dying, there is often fear, even though they have done this millions of times before. The people around them often don’t want them to go. When the person does die they are badly missed by those still living, those still physically incarnate. There is grief and loss in the minds of those left behind.

When we have a connection with someone, there are energetic cordings between us and the other person, from our centres to theirs. The stronger the relationship, the stronger the cordings. When the other person leaves, the cordings start to drop away. If the other person dies, there are no centres for the cordings to get attached to. This can be traumatic on a personality level. Grief ensues.

The person dying usually sees the light and as that is so amazing in comparison to what they experience in a physical body, off they go. Sometimes the grief and the emotional attachment of those left behind binds the spirit and soul in the space around the earth making them earthbound. This is not a pleasant or ideal situation for the person who has dropped their body as they are trapped and stopped from doing what they need to. These souls need to be rescued and released, so they can move on (this is rescue work).

When it comes to people we have a relationship with of some sort in this lifetime, usually we have had at least a few lifetimes with them in some sort of relationship such as friend, enemy, sibling, parent, son /  daughter of, wife / husband, extended family member, and so on. We will have known them before.  It’s likely we will see them again in future lifetimes, too, as there are karmic links. So death ends that well known link for now, but you get to see them again.

When out of physical body, being physically alive as opposed to being a soul and spirit on the inner planes,  is not the big deal we make of it when we are in a physical body. We know there is more to that existence, we have it more in perspective. Physical life is a way of learning and developing through many lifetimes to become what we can be, which is a soul on the Divine Journeys, but knowing much more, and being more, than a soul who has not made the journey down into creation and back into the Divine.

Reincarnation is part of that process. Some distant day in the future we may understand that when someone dies that soul is going on the next part of their journey.

In the West, there are people who request funerals that are more upbeat and more of a celebration of that person and their life, rather than being a solemn affair. I do wonder how they will be when we really come to terms with reincarnation.

We create karma with all of our thoughts, feelings, words and actions. Even the act of breathing builds karma. We build physical karma, astral karma and physical karma. Any karma we create we have to balance in a later lifetime. If everyone on earth knew that what they did needed to be balanced later, would this influence how we thought about life and what we choose to do?
