December 2012 signifies the end of the old and the beginning of a new cycle in the history of human consciousness. The polar axis of the earth has been gradually moving since the 50’s. As it shifts to its final position, a new energy will be freed to set into motion the new era of humanity and help it enter into a higher vibration of existence. Like an earthquake that quivers things on the surface of the planet, the final shift in polar axis will create massive destruction on the physical, mental, and emotional planes all around the globe. Everything that we have built and lived with for 25,000 years in these three realities will be tested for their viability and possibility of survival. The North and South weather will reverse, and the power and wealth will shift from the hands of the greedy to the hands of the light workers.
The Universe evolves and expands as a result of transformation of the unconscious energies into consciousness. Through millions of years of evolution of consciousness on this planet, the energy vibrations that were sustainable on a physical plane have now become obsolete and are beginning to prevent further evolution in consciousness. Mother Nature now feels an existential need to destroy the old outdated structures humanity has created on this planet so that a new structure can be put into motion.
The last great destruction happened during the Atlantian era. This was inevitable due to the imbalance of power within the human race. We are now in a similar situation, where only a very few hold power and control over the masses. Their power is fueled by insecurity, greed, and manipulation, and is designed to benefit just a few. This imbalance can no longer sustain itself and is vividly evident through the global economic and political breakdown.
Terrorists exist because of different religious ideologies and political values. They exist because of the suppression of the individual and his and her potential for consciousness, freedom, and joy. Many people now recognize that unless they decide living with one universal consciousness, humanity might disappear as a species.
The New Era will bring with it an awareness of Universal Consciousness. Though the beginning of the new era is signified by the year 2012, the preparation for it has been going on for thousands of years. There have been many teachers who have come and gone throughout the centuries and have left their footprints, but they have not been able to help on a global scale because their teachings were localized in small areas. Starting with the most ancient teachings of the Upanishadic seers in India ninety thousand years ago, many masters have pointed to the need for self-awareness and self-realization. Unfortunately, up until now, very few people were conscious and intelligent enough to recognize the message of their teachings and find their own inner truth.
With the appearance of the Buddha 2,500 years ago, a new cycle of manifestation of consciousness began. As his teachings spread from India to China, to Japan and eventually throughout the world, more and more people became aware that through a simple technique of just watching ones breath it was possible to break out of the illusion created by the ego-mind and experience transcendence into oneness. The Buddha, in a way, fathered the concept of enlightenment and gave specific instructions on how to achieve it through meditation. What the Buddha put into motion 2,500 years ago will come to fruition and a collective transformation into the New Era of Universal Consciousness is now possible.
Another teacher of the same caliber as the Buddha, Osho, lived in the past century. Osho created havoc for the old organized structures and outlined the blue print of how the New Man and the New Humanity can be created and function in a completely new way. He spoke of the need to disconnect from the past by destroying the old outdated social, religious, and political structures that have kept humans in shackles and he sowed the seeds on how to live with a new vision. These seeds will be absolutely pure of any kind of doctrine, greed, jealousy, and conditionings and will brings fresh new flowers that we have never seen before.
A significant number of humans are now recognizing that everyone belongs to the same universe and no one can ever be separate from Creation. Many are becoming aware of their innate state of power and religiosity, which is independent of any organized religious belief or conditioning. Many are beginning to see that the Will of Creation is the ultimate Will, and they are recognizing the deception of the ego that keeps them separate from the whole.
Those who see this will be able to surrender their separate will and be blessed with an opportunity to heal into consciousness and find their immortal being, which endlessly journeys within the vastness of this compassionate Universe, continually learning, creating, and expanding in consciousness. Each moment of healing into consciousness will help to prepare us for the ultimate surrender and liberation from our ego-mind. Those who gather the courage to surrender the small will of their ego will be the torch-bearers for the new cycle of evolution of humanity and will lead the way.
It took 25,000 years for enough people to evolve into greater consciousness and they are now ready to make a difference in shifting and transforming the collective into a new level of wakefulness.
Facing the Inevitable Truth
The Mayan calendar ending at 2012 signifies that our old way of living will also end. Each individual will face an opportunity to liberate their consciousness from the fears created by the conditionings of the ego. Whether we like it or not, everyone will be faced with needing to accept the truth that there is only One Existence and One God. The multiple concepts of God have been created out of fear of the unknown and the need to control. These man-made concepts about the many different Gods have created much pain and suffering for humanity and have brought us to self-destruction. Our survival is now predicated on renunciation of the many different concepts of God and unification as cosmic beings belonging to the earth and the universe.
The year 2012 will bring us an opportunity to start living with awareness that we are the creators of our own destiny and thus need to take responsibility for our own actions. Instead of allowing others to dictate what’s right and wrong for us individually we need to learn to stand up for our own inner truth.
Up until now the old structures have encouraged humanity to live in constant fear of death and struggle for survival. Due to this everyone has learned to suppress their true thoughts and emotions and behave artificially. Even if we think that we have a free will, our fears undermine it. 2012 will shed new light on our fears and will encourage us to be honest with ourselves and others. By becoming aware of the unconscious state we have lived in and by taking the needed action to be honest and truthful we can truly exercise our free will and experience true Love and Joy.
The New Beginning
The end of 2012 will be the end of the world as we know it. 2012 will awaken us out of our collective sleep and will destroy our old beliefs, ideologies, and behavior patterns. All our emotional, mental, and physical foundations will be shaken, giving us an opportunity to surrender our fears, conditionings and old belief systems. This destruction will help us purify our first three chakras, and propel us collectively higher into the fourth chakra, where we will begin to function through our heart.
In a sense, this destruction will not be negative, although it may seem so at a first glance. The farmer knows that in order to sow new seeds he needs to first till the soil. If we are to survive the changes and create a new foundation we need to surrender our attachments to old social, political, and religious conditionings and sow new seeds based on honesty, integrity and purity of the heart. To start a new garden we need to weed it first. If the weeds are left to grow, they will eventually take over the garden and will suffocate the delicate flowers. Similarly, we need to weed our old patterns so we can awaken to our true potential.
2012 will shake people on many different levels. Many will realize that everything is temporary and sooner or later will be taken away. People will start to see that the only thing that matters and is of value are their heart connections.
2012 will give humanity an opportunity to dissolve borders and allow for conscious people to run the world’s affairs. The leaders will be those who have the best intentions at heart for all humans. The society will begin serving the individual and help each person blossom to their fullest potential.
The new beginning will give birth to a new man and a new woman who will follow the way of the heart instead of belong to any nation, or religious ideology. They will follow their own intelligence and inner knowing, and will be true to their own nature, which knows that we are all one and we are all God.
2012 – An Opportunity for True Love
2012 will bring many opportunities to build a new foundation that can support true love. Love has only been a concept until now. Christ consciousness can only be lived through the heart. To be truly loving, one need not talk about love but live in love and act out of love. True love brings freedom, not bondage, and it allows the other to find his and her own truth. True love does not impose. It has no conditions attached. True love allows the other to fly with his or her own wings. True love can only be felt and not talked about. True love is an ability to feel and know the transcendental. True love helps us to transcend the mind and move higher in consciousness. True love is our ability to share ourselves with others and the universe without fear. True love is the foundation of joy and creativity. True love is the foundation of honesty and truthfulness. True love does not compromise, control and manipulate.
Because these qualities are missing in our social structure, true love has remained only a possibility up until now. Once we stop cultivating competitiveness, emotions like jealousy and envy will melt away, and we will begin to experience and live in true love.
Most of our literature and life experiences have been based on the raw emotions of the first three chakras. We have learned to live with internal and external struggle and drama. We have created make-believe structures and ideologies about love and how it should be practiced. In the name of love, we have been conditioned to suppress and compromise our inner truth. Rarely have we seen and experienced the beauty and grace that arises out of spiritual values such as bliss, kindness, and unconditional love. Rarely have we experienced pure love that has no attachments to outcomes.
Everything artificial will soon be exposed on a mass scale. 2012 will bring to surface both our beauty as well as our ugliness. Those who are after their own selfish interests will become more and more visible and more and more miserable. Those who have been working hard to purify themselves and find their true being will have much to be grateful for, for they will find true happiness and joy which is within their own heart.
Children – Our Golden Future
Humans have lived giving lip service to each other and have taught their children to do the same. We have all been taught to manipulate and use each other to meet our own selfish needs. We all know too well how we use beautiful words but don’t mean what we say. We have taught our children to follow suit and have turned them into artificial mechanical robots just like we are. To heal this damage and allow for the new seeds to sprout we need to start honoring our children and make sure that we don’t contaminate their innate wisdom with dogmas and beliefs. We need to encourage our children to find their own truth and live by their own light, strength, and wisdom. Instead of instilling fear in children, the new structure will support and encourage them to find their individuality and discover for themselves what is false and what is true.
Children need to grow having the support of their parents to learn to stand up for themselves. They need to communicate to the world that they are not willing to live with the old outdated structures and they need to create their own future based on their own inner wisdom and sense of honesty and fairness.
The new changes will not happen overnight. Once the ground is tilled and the new seeds are in place, we need to nurture them by watering them and giving the needed sunshine and air so they can sprout. It will take time for the new seedlings to grow and develop. In order for this to happen, those of us who are conscious and aware need to keep weeding the ground around our children so the weeds don’t choke their delicate growth before they come to their maturity.
Are you Ready?
The transition through 2012 is going to be difficult for some people, yet easy for others. The level of difficulty will depend on how well each person has prepared himself or herself physically, mentally, and spiritually.
It is all a matter of vibration. To prepare oneself means to refine your energy vibration. This can only be done by taking full responsibility for your own transformation from unconsciousness into consciousness. It is each person’s responsibility to start functioning from higher energy centers (charkas) to move past the ego-mind and its desires. In the higher chakras, fear of survival, competitiveness, and the sense of separation are transformed into love, compassion, and awareness of one’s true being. Once we recognize that our being never dies, we truly understand the meaning and purpose of life. If more people start living with the awareness that their being is eternal and indestructible, and that no one can control and manipulate them, most fears will disappear. People will be happy to take risks and begin living in the present instead of dwelling on the past or escaping into the future.
2012 can be a year of mourning or a year of celebration. It will depend on what you choose it to be. It will be mourning for those who do not want to let go of their attachments and desires, and a year of celebration for those who are ready to surrender their ego-mind and awaken to the truth of their Being. Regardless of our choice, we will be forced to live in a new way. The new way will honor truthfulness, authenticity, and integrity instead of honoring fearful, controlling, and manipulative behaviors. The new way will expose selfish behaviors and will honor sincerity, courage, and compassion for others. Instead of persecuting those who expose their inner light to dispel darkness, humanity will begin treating them with reverence and respect for their contribution. And those who are ready to honor the light of their own consciousness will pave the way to their own salvation.
As we move towards the Enlightened Era in human evolution, we will begin remembering our true source and immortality, and will stop suffering. Those with best intentions at heart for themselves and others will set the new standards of social living. Their light will shine brightly paving the way for many others to transit between the old and the new. No harm will come to those who are conscious, as their consciousness alone will protect them.
The paradise that we seek outside of our true nature is already within us. To begin living paradise on Earth, we simply need to change our internal vibrations from unconsciousness into consciousness!
Seven Things you can do to Prepare for the 2012 Shift
1) Ask yourself Who am I? and Why am I Here? Examine your attitude towards life and death and search for your eternal being.
2) Surrender your personal will to the Will of Existence and whatever life brings you moment to moment.
3) Make a list of your fears and allow yourself to act in spite of them. Don’t be afraid to be different.
4) Understand and break through your social and religious conditionings. Search within to find your own answers instead of relying on other people’s opinion of what’s right for you.
5) Look for the lessons you need to learn in every situation in spite of the ups and downs of life.
6) Be honest with yourself and others and take full responsibility for your thoughts and emotions.
7) Live each day as if it’s your last, and trust that existence always takes care of you.

Higher Selves Quote:
The Thought Form Body is an invisible body that contains realities that have been created through every thought generated by any individual at any point in time. Within this envelope [energy field] dwells many different ‘yous.’ There is the ‘you,’ for example, who lives in this altered reality as an actual energy identity who is poor, who has no money. This altered reality has been created by you based on every thought you’ve projected dealing with a state of financial lack.
This altered reality that is the ‘you’ in a state of financial lack actually seeks to reinforce and empower itself, the altered reality that it has become. This then, quite outside of your conscious thought process, allows that altered reality to continue to grow and manifest its power and its authority over you in the physical form in the physical reality.
Imagine what it would be like to hold on to every thought you have ever had from the first moment you were born. Imagine that each thought was actual energy that did not disappear but hung out in some energy field surrounding you. And imagine that this thought energy had some magnetic qualities so that every type of thought you’d had over the years drew all other similar thoughts to it, like magnets with the same polarity. Then imagine that all these thoughts, or energy identities, have created actual altered realities in the space around yourself. And as you grew up, these energy identities, and the altered realities they created, became larger and larger with each thought.
To illustrate, let’s begin with an example of how thoughts create energy identities and how these, in turn, create altered realities.
Perhaps you’re someone who has focused on your weight throughout your life. Maybe as a small child you went through a chubby stage, and sometimes people around you would suggest that you refrain from a second helping. At first you paid it no mind, but then your consciousness took it in. You began to think that you were bigger than your cousins and friends the same age. You started thinking thoughts of needing to eat less candy and desserts. You found yourself rating how some friends or family members looked based on their weight. The issue built slowly for you as you went through being teased in school.
As an adult, you’ve struggled with your weight, trying diet after diet with limited success. And all this time, you’ve been harboring thoughts about being overweight. These similar thoughts are magnetically attracted to each other, building thought forms such as “I’m too fat,” “I eat too much,” “I’m a failure at losing weight,” and/or “I’m unlovable because I’m fat.” All these thought forms tirelessly develop an altered reality of your struggling with your weight.
Thought Form Body
Thoughts of every type have created thought forms in each of us. They come in all sizes—some tiny and some huge, with many in between, depending on the degree of thought put into them. As the Higher Selves stated in the above quote, the invisible envelope (energy field) around us, the place where these positive and negative energy identities call home, is the Thought Form Body. It isn’t actually a physical body but is instead held in an etheric energy field everyone carries with them. It contains all the thoughts of joy, fear, love, hate, hurt, illness, wealth, poverty, and ideas of the self, others, relationships, work, play, and on and on. All thoughts are held here, magnetically attracting similar thoughts from many sources, thereby building and strengthening all of our thought forms. They create all the altered realities that live with us in our Thought Form Body.
Suspending disbelief for a minute, let’s take this a few steps further by looking at how our mind works. Do we tend to think more positively or negatively as we go throughout our day? Most of you know the answer to this already.
For example, if we wake up feeling good, having had a good night’s sleep, we might think, “Oh, I feel great today! I have so much energy; I’m sure this will be a good day.” And then we go on our way and may never think of it again. Despite feeling really good, we actually tend to spend little time thinking about it. Feeling good helps us focus on the things we have to accomplish that day, resulting in thoughts geared toward those activities other than the state of feeling good.
But what happens if we sleep poorly and wake up with a backache, headache, or stiff neck? Don’t we often express a litany of complaints about it to friends or co-workers? And if a repairman or deliveryman comes by and politely asks, “How are you,” what do we say? If we feel good, we most likely just say, “Fine, and you?” But if our neck still hurts, we say, “Well, since you asked, I am having a bad day, starting with . . .”
The tendency to dwell on the negative outweighs our tendency to think positively, and every day we do so we strengthen those misery magnets. This means that when we look at the balance or the ratio of negative energy identities to positive ones, the scale weighs heavily on the negative side. This serves none of us well.
Drive to Manifestation
Thought forms are soulless and mindless. They lack consciousness. However, they carry the power of magnetic attraction. This magnetic energy is working 24/7. In fact, it does not just attract our own thoughts but all similar thoughts from many sources, including other people. This is not a conscious act any more than an actual magnet consciously attracts. What is the result of all this attraction?
The result of magnetic attraction is that the energy identities (and the altered realities they create) continue to build in strength. At the point that they’re strong enough, they manifest into our physical reality. In fact, their sole purpose is to manifest. The manifestation process from all of our energy identities is what forms our outer expression or, in other words, our lives.
For example, if it is cold and rainy outside, we may think throughout the day that we have to keep warm and dry so we don’t get sick. We see ads on TV about various cold remedies, which remind us to check what we have on hand just in case. We remember the time last year when we got the worst cold ever and had to miss work. Flu season is here and we plan to get a flu shot. We believe that all schools are breeding grounds for illnesses and have no patience for parents who send their children to school with a cold. We also believe that we are susceptible to every germ with which we come in contact. In this way, we are empowering our illness thought form (one that we already have) over and over again. And what do you know? Despite all our efforts to prevent it, we come down with a massive cold two weeks later and blame it on the time we spent helping out at our daughter’s pre-school.
In fact, getting sick was a result of the altered reality of illness gaining enough strength to manifest itself in our physical reality as a cold. It attracted the opportunity when you were asked to volunteer to read to your child’s pre-school class. This then triggered and empowered your beliefs (based on your thoughts) that you were now exposed to the germs that you were convinced would make you sick. And they did.
Isn’t it just that colds are contagious? No. If that were the case, every teacher, parent, and student who came in contact with children would get sick. Each individual responds to each situation based on what thought forms he/she is creating for him/herself. That is why some children/teachers have perfect attendance and others are chronically sick or somewhere in between. Of course, this process is more complex than I have presented. But the basic principles are the same.
Other examples are: If you have a large victim thought form, it will magnetically attract conditions that will make you a victim once more. If you have a failure pattern, the thought forms will bring in situations that will again result in failure. If you bring in mates that make you crazy with their infidelity, the thought forms may keep you in a cycle of betrayal. Thought forms are the source for the patterns we have in our lives.
In addition to the Thought Form Body, we also carry a Habit Body. The Habit Body is another invisible envelope of energy (field) surrounding us that contains imprints of every thought and every action. Thoughts create energy identities and habit imprints simultaneously. And as the imprints of similar thoughts get deeper and deeper, they become our most ingrained habits. As we smoke/worry/procrastinate/and so on, the imprints/ruts are reinforced again. In other words, the depth of a habit imprint in the Habit Body is relative to how often we have thought the thought and/or acted—the deeper the rut, the more automatic and intense the habit. There are no energy identities in the Habit Body, but the habit imprints empower the thoughts and vice versa.
Have you ever noticed that you wake up five mornings out of seven at the exact same time? Or that you get a cup of coffee without thinking before you start any project? Or that you put on your left shoe before your right one every morning? These are simple, repetitive habits that are easy to see and are relatively harmless in the scheme of things. Of course, we all have deeper and more complicated ones, so it is very important that we pay attention to all our habits. These habit imprints work with Thought Forms to reinforce our patterns. These two working together are in part what makes it so difficult to change things about ourselves with which we are unhappy. The more ingrained a habit, the more we act on it and think about it. The thought form gains power and then manifests again – and then again.
One of my habits for over ten years was to sleep only three or four hours a night. Once I’d wake up, I would never be able to go back to sleep, resulting in chronic exhaustion. Fortunately, by doing the exercises that the Higher Selves taught us, I was successful at changing this pattern, and those sleepless years are now a distant memory. Now I sleep at least five to six hours a night with few exceptions. I still wake up many nights, but the difference is I go back to sleep. Of course, five or six hours are not enough. Fortunately, I have continued to improve, sleeping seven plus hours a night at least three times every week. Habits can be changed, and you can do it too.
The Overall Picture
Remember that we live as humans in a Free Will Kingdom, that we choose how our lives unfold. If something happens that changes our thought patterns for a day or week, we will empower different energy identities and habit imprints and will, therefore, manifest differently than we did in prior weeks.
One example many can relate to is the unexpected death of a young friend or family member. The new vulnerability we now feel may make us realize that we have been complacent about life. As a result, we decide to focus more on preventing illness by eating healthy food and exercising. We also become more open to telling our family every day how much we love them and perhaps resolve to work harder to be a better person so that there are no regrets if we die young. Were we thinking this way before? No, but we are now. So our energy identities and habit imprints are changing as a reflection of the changes in our thought patterns.
What is more significant, however, is how often we are determined to change only to find our old habits return. How many of us with great intentions find ourselves back in the same place within days/weeks/months? How many times have we had to use the same New Year’s resolution because we didn’t accomplish it this year or the prior years? Why are there so many new diets on the market, multiple no-smoking aids, a myriad of solutions for depression, insomnia, etc? Why are there so many self-help books? Because for all our grand efforts and deep desire to change, we predictably find ourselves back in the same place, having made little lasting forward movement. This does not feel good. There are reasons why change is so hard and there is more to it than just thinking positive thoughts. Let’s take a look at the Law of Attraction.
The Law of Magnetic Attraction Clarified
Higher Selves Quote:
Thought forms are what carry the impact of what you will outwardly manifest. This is not a process that will be reached through affirmations or through consciously speaking words. For the process of thought forms is one that goes very, very deep. Thought forms are carried from lifetime to lifetime so that the buildup of these “altered realities” is very intense and very powerful.
What exactly is the Law of Attraction? It seems to be the basis of many metaphysical self-help books (including The Secret) and even has its place in some religious teachings. Simply stated, it posits that thoughts are energy and are magnetic in nature. They attract to you situations and people that match your predominant thoughts, whether conscious or unconscious. The bottom line, therefore, is like attracts like. The more positively you think, the more positive your life will be. Every individual is responsible for what they bring into their lives. Is there more to it than this? Yes.
There needs to be more than positive thought to create real change in your life. Of course, there are people who have changed their thoughts from the negative to positive, who have brought more good into their lives than before. But what does it mean for those of us who didn’t find success by thinking positively, yet worked as hard or harder than the others who did? What about those who achieved results but didn’t recognize that what they got was either the exact right result (even if unexpected) or that it was only the first step in a process that would lead them to the final goal? What about the patterns that keep recurring in life despite the efforts to change them? Or the emotional upheavals that make us behave in ways we’re not proud of?
What has been missing in the prior teachings on the Law of Attraction is the fact that it has not been fully understood. The Higher Selves didn’t change the Law. They explain how it works. And there are two misconceptions that need to be cleared up. The first one is that a positive thought does not negate or replace a negative thought. It only empowers the positive energy identities while the negative ones remain to also magnetically attract negative situations, conditions and people into our lives. Because we harbor so much more of the negative, the positives we empower through our thoughts are still extremely weak compared to the powerful negatives.
The second misconception is that even if you never think a negative thought ever again, it doesn’t mean that the negative energy identities go away. Once created, the thought energy exists forever. Leaving those negative altered realities in place is what makes it so difficult for us to change. Whether negative or positive, the energy remains in place in our etheric bodies as thought forms and habit imprints. When these are positive, we can rejoice. When they are negative, we are concerned with what we do about them. What we must do is to neutralize the negative energies to render them harmless and incapable of magnetically attracting anything that could hurt us. Neutralizing the negatives and using that energy to empower our light is the key to change. Again, the Higher Selves didn’t change the Law of Attraction but added details about how it functions.
The Shift From Victim to Taking Charge
Once we accept that we are living in a Free Will Kingdom, and that we are making both conscious and unconscious choices that create our experiences, we can find our way to take responsibility for what happens to us. So the shift goes from blaming someone, something or some event for our problem/s to looking at ourselves and asking, “Why did I bring this into my life?” “How can I change this reality?” Or “How can I prevent it from happening again?”
There is no judgment here. We are not all screw-ups who just can’t get it right. Instead, we acknowledge that we are all experiencing the human condition. Everyone has challenges to face, joys to experience, moments of wonder and moments of despair. What will be explained is the way to be actively involved in how your life unfolds. There is no magic pill to take and presto . . .you have changed. If it took years and lifetimes to develop our patterns, undoing these patterns won’t be instantaneous. However, with consistent effort, we can change our patterns, find what was hidden and untapped, and definitely improve our lives significantly.
In a year from now we will all be one year older. We can still be in the same place, coping with the same issues. Or we can use the simple Higher Self techniques and make this year and every year a witness to us becoming much more of what we want to be. We understand our conscious choices. And now we understand how our own thought forms and habit imprints, through the process of magnetic attraction, work with our conscious choices to create the outer expression we call our lives. Someone else isn’t creating our lives. It isn’t Mother Nature, your jerky boss, or a vindictive god picking on you. We are busy making and playing out our patterns consciously and unconsciously, then, taking what life gives us and handling it as best we can. Now is the time to be in charge but it is wrong to just focus on the positive and neglect the negative. There are techniques available to enable us to do the neutralizing we need to do. We are not doomed. We are not stuck. We are not powerless.

Have you ever noticed that when you enter a room with a bunch of people, you can instantly feel the energy of the environment? Whether the energy is positive or negative, your mood is very likely to get influenced by it. Each and every interaction we have with the outside world influences our mind. The mind turns relatively negative when in the midst of negative energy, and it turns relatively positive when in the midst of positive energy.

The terms “life experiences,” “choice,” “karma,” “and unconditional love” are all part of the same whole. I will explain them individually, in the way that I received them in my own teachings; however, they must be understood holistically. One without the other can bring confusion. Together, these terms explain the wonder of life.
Life is physical. We are born into a physical body, and we live in a physical world. We interpret our experiences physically. This physicality allows us to “feel,” which the spirits have explained to me is the major component of the earth experience. The earth experience is one of emotion, where the soul acquires a physical understanding of emotion. For example, it is one thing to conceptualize anger and another thing to experience anger and to feel it throughout the body. The same holds true for love. It is significantly different to think about being in love and about the concept of love than it is to “feel” love and the emotions and physical sensations of love.
When one thinks of the vast array of human emotions, one realizes how many lifetimes must be lived in order to “know” life. It is the spirits’ message that we live many lifetimes and experience many life forms and situations along our path to understanding. With each incarnation, your spirit selects the physical realities you will experience in that lifetime. You, embodied in your spirit, choose the circumstances you will be born into: the life conditions, the geographic location, the economic status, the handicaps, and the body type. You actually choose all of the fixed factors that will constitute a major portion of your life experience. You also choose your variable life conditionsthose conditions that can change through growth and development as you progress through life.
These choices constitute the conditions under which you live each lifetime. What you have chosen to experience is designed for a particular unfolding of your soul. The choices are made at a spiritual levela soulful, subconscious levelbefore you incarnate into this particular body.
