There are many practices that bring spirituality into your life. If you are trying them but they are not helping, one reason might be that you aren’t giving them the life force they need to become real. Let’s look at how to solve that issue.
The most important aspect of any practice is to bring in enough life force — made up of energy and inspiration — to do the practice effectively. We can’t get this life force from the world around us. With all the problems in the world, there just isn’t enough life force here. And what is here is full of negativity. What we need to do is reach deep into the shamanic lower world to find clean energy. Then we reach high into the upper world to find inspiration.
Relationships, sexuality, money and other forms of power — these are important wishes. If we achieve all of these, is it enough?
I’m pretty sure the answer is no. These are our Earth-bound wishes. We have them because we are in a body. Between physical lives we have a completely different experience. Wishes from there are also part of who we truly are. We need to meet those wishes to be whole.
The United States of America has elected Donald Trump as its next President. The campaign’s power, determination, and connection to the wishes of the American people were very strong.
I hope we can show the same power and determination (with, perhaps, more humility) in getting out the message that We All Have Souls.
Now it’s time to renew our positive connections with one another. We don’t banish the darkness by being dark. We don’t calm anger by being angry. We don’t end hate by hating.
We need to find the spark of the creator in everyone and turn that into a flame. That flame needs to light up the shadows so we can see ourselves clearly. And admit that because we are human, the shadows will always be there.
We need to find the calmness to look at our deep connections. We all wish for safety and love, enough food and protective shelter, respect and acknowledgement of our worth. There will always be change, and fear of change. What we need to know is that when the change causes us harm, there will be someone there to help us.
Knowing that we all have souls points out clearly that each of us owes that support to everyone and everything in the physical and soul worlds. With that kind of support, we can continue to grow.
When we look at how our soul regions blend together, it helps explain who we are. While it’s not always true, the cooperation is often in regions that are next to one another. I think it’s similar to the way colors in a rainbow change smoothly from one primary color to the next. For example, between blue and green we can see many types of blue-green. Let’s take a look at pairs of regions to show how this works in souls.
When Energy and Wish regions work together we see a person with a lot of energy to devote to a cause. The energy may be positive or negative. The cause may be healing or harmful. If the cause is getting enough food to eat, we can expect the person to use any energy that is there. Others may be hurt. If the cause is helping others, there is a better chance that the life force will be positive. Continue reading and add your comment →
We forget because the wish of everything that comes into physical reality is to learn how to be separate. That’s the simple answer.
In soul reality everything is much more connected. When we’re there, I don’t think we can say that a wish belongs to just one soul. Wishes and every other part of what the soul does are shared pretty freely with all the other beings that are there. There may be some limit to the sharing based on connections, but every being is connected to lots of others.
When we are so connected with others, we can’t learn about the aspects of our soul (wishes, feelings, thoughts, etc.). So we decided to run an experiment. And here we are — in physical reality — separate from everyone else. Continue reading and add your comment →
The Mind region combines sensing and intellect. It has the ability to see and hear the world, to make sense of things, sort them out, and figure out how they fit together. It also answers questions for the lower regions when they have a problem they can’t solve.
I think the overall purpose of the Mind is to figure out how to achieve our wishes in ordinary reality. Sometimes it takes a skillful Mind to even figure out what our wishes are. Ordinary reality can be very confusing. Continue reading and add your comment →
This continues the discussion of the soul I started last time with a description of the Energy region. You can see the first discussion here. It’s from the current draft of my book We All Have Souls and I Think I Can Prove It.
I’ve included an exercise to help you understand the region better. Your thoughts on the description and the exercise will help the book get better.
The Wish region is what we come into the world with. Any agreements we have from the time before we are born or from previous lives are stored here. The wishes we have express who we want to be. The rest of who we are grows out of these wishes. Continue reading and add your comment →
