When we add these four concepts about souls to the Western view of the world, we can explain almost everything that happens in physical and spiritual reality:
We all have souls.
Souls are divided into regions and each region performs a different function.
Beyond the four physical forces, there is a life force.
Souls use the life force to power themselves and connect with other souls.
When we learn to feel the souls that are in all of us — in everything — we escape from the illusion of isolation. Comments are appreciated.

There are pools in soul reality where beings can safely meet. Synchronicity brings the beings together because it is the right time for them to get together. In an ongoing synchronicity, there is information about what the beings need to do and energy to accomplish what needs to be done.
Betsy Bergstrom teaches that after a soul healing we need to let the River of Blessings flow through all the places that were healed. I believe this Pool of Blessings is the headwaters of the River of Blessings. I also believe that a blessing is just what is found here: a safe place to meet and energy and information to make a needed change.
We hear a lot about the harm that humans are causing the earth. Sometimes people talk about harming the soul of the earth, whom they call Gaia, Pachamama, and many other names. I believe the harm is real.
I also believe that humans need to do more than stopping our harmful activities. Because we can, we are here to heal past hurts, which may or may not have been caused by humans. Beyond that, we are here to make our physical reality and the souls connected with it more wonder-filled than they already are.
But, let’s be realistic about what we can do. Right now there is so much hoocha and negative life force that making something new probably needs to wait until we clean up the problems of the past.
It’s better to shine a light on a riot of flowers than to cast a Shadow on others in a riot of humans.
Hatred, hoocha, and negative life force are bubbling to the surface of American life. Let’s take a look at what is happening from a soul perspective.
We’re seeing the Shadow of America — all the dark impulses that are usually hidden beneath the surface of our culture. It is scary when it bubbles up to a level that we are aware of.
In a person, the Shadow usually lurks below the level of consciousness in the Wish or Will regions of the soul. In a group (America in this case) the Shadow lurks in parts of the population that are seldom seen by the majority of Americans. When the Shadow makes itself known, and we’re not part of the Shadow, we seldom know what to do with it.
As you may have noticed, I took a break from writing for a while. It wasn’t planned, but other parts of my work seemed like they needed to be done instead. I’m back.
This time I have a couple of announcements and a quick request. My intention for next time is to start a series of posts on connection. I want to look at connection from the perspectives of martial arts, Inca medicine work, and the Sidhe.
Last time [http://weallhavesouls.com/2017/04/07/river-of-blessings/] I wrote about mixing the River of Blessings and the River of Sorrows to create beauty. One of my observations was that we have lost the ability to empty the Rivers so they rise up and overwhelm us. This time I offer a brief look at tonglen, which is a way to empty the River of Sorrows.
Tonglen is a Tibetan Buddhist breathing meditation practice that helps us compassionately open our hearts to care for and reduce our own and others’ suffering.
I want to talk today about the River of Blessings, the River of Sorrows, and the poem “The Stolen Child” by William Butler Yeats. From these three elements I believe we can learn more about our souls’ purpose. The elements point out a path to a healthy soul and a well lived life… maybe.
Today I want to share something from Perry Edwards. Perry is one of my human co-creators in working with souls. We met, I believe, because Pachamama and Inti Tayta thought we could help each other out. Apus and dinosaur spirits were involved, too.
It’s the Gift You Got
by Perry Edwards 2/24/17
It’s the gift you got
now like it or not
one soul with you
and your body crew
So now jump for joy
every girl and boy
that soul in you
helps you know what to do
When you scream and shout
jump and let it all out
your soul’s running that show
not your body bro
My client was a male friend, whom I will call Y. He had a rough childhood which included abuse from his mother and older sister, whom I will call X. When Y asked me for help, both his mother and sister had died. It was clear that they were still negatively affecting Y even though he had separated himself from them for many years.
My team of incarnate and spirit helpers found place for the mother to go that separated her from Y. X was more of a problem. In the end we managed to force her into a secure place which we imagined as a room with mirrors so she could see what she had done, but not get out to affect Y. It was a hard struggle and everyone was hurt, a little or a lot, by the end of it.
When I remove curses or have curses on me removed, I find that many are from earlier lifetimes. A typical pattern is that one person gets cursed in one lifetime and then turns around and curses the cursor in the next lifetime. Another pattern is that one person curses another person over and over through many lifetimes.
These curses can bounce back and forth, pretty much forever, getting stronger each time. When curse removers step in to fix the problem, they enter a dangerous minefield of interwoven nastiness.
I think there are two flavors to curses. One is binding negative life force to a person to bring about something like, “You will never find a woman who will treat you well.” The other is possessing a person to take over his or her Will. In my next post, I’ll tell a story about a curse that had both parts. A crucial aspect of removing the curse was finding the beginning of the cycle of cursing. Continue reading and add your comment →
There is an exercise in We All Have Souls and I Think We Can Prove It that shows it is impossible to live in the physical world without harming other living things. In brief it asks you to consider a vegetable.
One point of the exercise is that we need to eat other living things to survive. When you eat the vegetable, feeding you becomes its sole purpose for existing. A carrot or stalk of broccoli that you eat doesn’t go on to make more carrots or broccoli. It’s finished, at least in the “bloodline” (seedline?) sense.
