What an interesting and incredible journey life can be! As souls, we live many lifetimes learning lessons for our souls. We spend time in Heaven, and when the time is right, we make a decision to be reborn on the Earth. The divine knowledge stored in our souls is temporarily veiled as we make our way back to Earth for a journey of self-discovery. Each event and circumstance we experience is specifically designed to reawaken our souls to the divine knowledge within, to rediscover the truth of our existence at the core of our spirits.
Why do we suffer?
On the surface, the obstacles and difficult times may not seem to make sense. Why do we need to suffer? Why do we need to experience physical and emotional pain? What is the purpose behind the experiences that wrench our souls? It is not a divine experiment designed to see what effects pain has on us as beings, but a carefully selected series of events uniquely created for each being. These events are created to draw us deeper within to relearn who we are and to draw us closer to divine truths.
Accelerating our Growth
In Heaven, negativity does not exist as it does here on Earth. Our time in Heaven is a time of rest and learning, but not of great challenges. We agree to a lifetime on Earth to help accelerate the evolvement of our souls, which means, we agree to face challenges designed to reawaken us to the divine core within and to help us rediscover our reasons for existence.
Amazingly Sophisticated Orchestration
The soul contracts we make prior to being born on this Earth contain the lessons we agreed to learn in our lifetimes. Each soul contract is a unique listing of lessons for each individual. The details about how those lessons will occur is not determined until we are here on Earth. This is because we have free will. Each decision we make affects a multitude of actions and, therefore, creates a dynamic which requires real-time facilitation of lesson-learning situations. All of the situations are designed, directed, and changed in an incredibly sophisticated manner by powers higher than us and are managed according to the goals in our soul contracts. This complicated process weaves together our lives with the lives of others in order to help all of us learn separate lessons within each of the circumstances.
One of the overarching goals of life on Earth is to learn how to love ourselves and others during this journey of self-discovery of the divine within. We are all on different levels of evolvement, which helps with the lesson-learning process because our individual actions motivated by our soul’s level of evolvement are used to create situations which stimulate conflict, agreement, challenges, and triumphs. Loving and appreciating each other throughout the experiences of life can be a challenge in and of itself because of the divine knowledge veiled from us and because we may have a difficult time recognizing the bigger picture when it comes to negative events. By looking for the positive within negative events and knowing we are here to help each other, even if it is facilitated through trying circumstances, may provide more understanding and acceptance of what we go through and why.
Life really is an amazing journey of self-discovery made through the cooperative efforts of each and every one of us on Earth, as well as our support teams in Heaven. Even if awareness of how we are all interconnected is not readily understood by all, we are still one big family of beings sent here to help one another in our journey through life.
With much love and many blessings for all,
