GETTING TO KNOW JESUS AS A WAYSHOWER, PART 2 – THE JOURNEY OF THE SOUL

GETTING TO KNOW JESUS AS A WAYSHOWER

Part 2 of Series
“The Journey of the Soul”

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

 In the early 2000s, I wrote a series of lessons to help Christians, and others who choose to use Jesus as an example of an individual demonstrating the Christ Consciousness, to get know him as a Wayshower.

As many know, whether or not Jesus was actually crucified has recently become a hot topic of discussion.  Truth—in 2014–is pouring out, shocking many and pulling the rug out from under others’ worldview.  However, for many, whether or not the Roman government actually crucified Jesus is of less importance than their rejection of the theological reason for that crucifixion as stated in orthodox Christian teachings.  The orthodox reason is that God sent his Only Begotten Son to die on the cross to save a sinful people, whom He would otherwise sentence to eternal punishment in the fires of hell for their sins.

 I, and countless others, rejected this theological viewpoint decades ago.  Since Jesus is regularly proclaimed as Savior/Redeemer and therefore worshipped as such, many Christians were left in limbo without a Wayshower to guide them through the stormy waters in which they found themselves once they stepped outside the orthodox box.

“If Jesus Is A Wayshower, What Did He Show Us?”

Part 2 of Series
“The Journey of the Soul”


BE SURE TO READ THE INTRODUCTION TO THIS SERIES FIRST.

If Jesus is a Wayshower, what did He show us? He revealed the journey of the soul through numerous incarnations. How do we know Jesus incarnated multiple times?

Throughout the Bible, reference is made to a Book of Life (Malachi 3:16 and Revelations 13:8 are examples). Metaphysicians call this book the Akashic Records, an energetic recording of life that could be considered the universal archives. We all tap into the Akashic Records on an unconscious level. Doing so is how we remember what we’ve learned in prior lifetimes. Some individuals, like Edgar Cayce (the most scientifically documented intuitive in the world), possess the conscious capacity to attune to the Akashic Records and share with us the information found there. Glenn Sanderfur, author of Lives of the Master: The Rest of the Jesus Story, took the information given through the Cayce Readings and researched it further. He studied ancient legends, historical records, and many of the earliest writings discovered during the past century. The information Sanderfur unveils, concerning the lives of Jesus, is correlated with stories that were widely accepted as true in the ancient world. The personalities assumed by the soul of Jesus are listed in accordance with the Edgar Cayce Readings and Sanderfur’s own research.

Since the biblical personalities who possessed the soul of Jesus can easily be researched in the Bible, we will focus on them. As stated in the 1st lesson of this series, Jesus was one of the Sons & Daughters that agreed to come to Earth millions of years ago as a spirit being. Our involution into the atmosphere of Earth is considered the 1st creation story in Genesis 1. Eons later, souls took on the physical bodies described in the 2nd creation story found in Genesis 2. Physical bodies allowed them to reside in the lower vibrations characterizing the 3rd dimension or physical plane. The narrative of Adam and Eve eating fruit from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge of Good & Evil is the allegorical story of the Sons and Daughters of God choosing to sojourn on the plane of duality, where they would be conscious of making freewill choices and experiencing the consequences. With time, some of the Sons & Daughters of God forgot who they were and lost consciousness of their unity with all of creation. They believed themselves to be simply their physical bodies, separate from God, and powerless when confronting the challenges afforded by the plane of duality. Jesus, as one of the Sons of God, volunteered to return to Earth in an effort to awaken humanity to our true identity.

One of the earliest biblical personalities of Jesus was Enoch. Although the Bible says little about Enoch, three ancient books, Enoch I, II, and III are attributed to him. Jesus also incarnated as Melchizedek, the King of Salem who blessed Abram with the bread and wine upon his return from a victorious battle. Both Enoch and Melchizedek simply disappeared from Earth. Genesis 5:24 describes Enoch: “Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him.” In other words, Enoch ascended without experiencing death. In Hebrews 7:3, Melchizedek is described: “Without father, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but resembling the Son of God, he remains a priest forever.” Enoch and Melchizedek remind us of the capacity that is ours—that of becoming so purified and filled with light that we can descend and ascend from Earth plane at will. They reveal the unity of the physical and spiritual dimensions. There is no need to experience death. We all possess the aptitude to ascend, by raising the vibrations of our physical bodies so high that they become invisible and move into the higher dimensions of consciousness.

According to Edgar Cayce, Jesus found that taking on a physical body at will—as Enoch and Melchizedek—did not give him the degree of rapport needed in order to guide humanity back home to full consciousness of ourselves as Sons & Daughters of God. He realized that he needed to experience life as we do. So he began to incarnate into physical bodies that vibrated at a much slower rate of speed. As he did so, he began to stumble and make mistakes too. Thus, we can trace his soul’s progress through a series of lifetimes as seen in the Bible.

As Joseph, the favorite son of Jacob, he retained an ability to prophesy through his dreams and his interpretations of others’ dreams. However, Joseph angered his older brothers by sharing his dreams of being in a position of power over them. His brothers took revenge by selling him to a caravan of men traveling to Egypt. Joseph maintained a positive attitude through all the challenges he confronted, including years of unjust imprisonment. Finally, using his intuitive attunement to God’s instruction, Joseph interpreted correctly the Pharaoh’s prophetic dreams. As a result, he was released from prison and promoted to a position second only to the pharaoh of Egypt. Joseph’s wisdom enabled him to save the Israelites and Egyptians from starvation during the seven years of famine, prophesized by Pharaoh’s dreams. When Joseph’s brothers journeyed to Egypt to purchase grain, they were filled with fear when they realized he now had the power of life and death over them. Joseph’s comforting words to his brothers may also comfort us when we encounter challenges that turn our lives upside down. “I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. For the famine has been in the land for two years; and there are five more years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvest. God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors. So it was not you who sent me here, but God; he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.” (Genesis 45:4-8)

The life of Joseph teaches us that divine order underlies all of life—that divine order (or God) works out all things for the highest good. Joseph’s story reveals that God knows our needs before we do and makes arrangement for their fulfillment far in advance. All of creation moves naturally toward harmony and well-being, regardless of outer appearances in the present.

Years later, Jesus incarnated as Joshua, assistant to Moses. He traveled with the Israelites as they fled captivity in Egypt and remained with them throughout the forty years in the wilderness. Because Moses was not allowed to enter the Promised Land, Joshua led the Israelites in the battles that allowed them to move into Palestine. The biblical narrative depicts God fighting on the side of Joshua and the Israelites. Even the sun and moon stood still in order to assist Joshua. Historical records of this period reveal few battles, other than with warring tribal lords—a common occurrence in the ancient Middle East. The total devastation described in the Bible is not found in the ancient secular records of this time. Most of the battles Joshua fought were the same battles we wage—with our lower selves. A vital part of our spiritual journey is the requirement to purify and conquer all lower desires and negativity within our energy field. These are the enemies that must be destroyed without mercy. When the Bible depicts God as fighting, it is revealing through the symbol of “battle” the way in which God’s loving presence enfolds us every step of our way back home. Often the people grew discouraged and turned to other gods, representing the various idols we have in our lives, such as money, power, and status. We often turn from God, as we place more importance on the acquiring of money, relationships, and whatever else distracts us from our spiritual path. Joshua taught: “… revere the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness …. If you are unwilling to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve …. If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, then he will turn and do you harm.” (Joshua 24:14-15, 19-20) What does this mean?

We can walk on only one path: the narrow path our soul would choose OR the broad path our lower personality nature will choose. Spirit is very patient and allows us to meander along the broad path for as long as we choose. However, once we embark consciously on the narrow path back home to our true identity as Sons and Daughters of God, we suffer whenever we make a wrong turn. God is not punishing us. Instead, our soul is guiding us along a very narrow path, bordered on either side with the sharp rocks of the world and its glamour. To make a wrong turn entails pain, because we stumble over the rocks. Our soul’s guidance can take many forms and even appear extremely unjust. Take the example of the biblical Job and all the seemingly unjust suffering he endured. The end result was Job’s enlightenment. Humanity continues to make the choice to awaken spiritually through suffering as long as we fail to walk intentionally and consciously the narrow path to enlightenment.

Joshua reminded the people that God can be trusted. “You know in your hearts and souls, all of you, that not one thing has failed of all the good things that the Lord your God promised concerning you; all have come to pass for you, not one of them has failed.” (Joshua 23:14) We, too, can trust in the unfolding of divine order. As we live in accordance with divine law, we come to know perfect health and prosperity in all areas of our lives. Then we, too, enter the Promised Land that is the Kingdom of God within ourselves.

The soul of Jesus broadened his physical plane experiences by incarnating as Asaph, a musician appointed by King David to oversee music in worship. He sang at the dedication for Solomon’s Temple, the first to be erected in Jerusalem. Several of the Psalms are attributed to Asaph: Psalm 50, and Psalms 73 – 83. We can catch a glimpse into the mind of Asaph by reading these Psalms. According to the Cayce Readings, Asaph was also a scribe and wrote additional portions of the Old Testament. Wisdom literature was very popular during the time of Asaph.

The last Old Testament personality of the soul of Jesus was an incarnation as Jeshua, a high priest of the Temple who had been exiled to Babylon. When Cyrus of Persia captured Babylon, he allowed Jeshua to return to Jerusalem—accompanied by those Jewish exiles who chose to return home—and make plans for the reconstruction of the Temple destroyed by the Babylonian army. This lifetime, the soul of Jesus was a peaceful warrior leading his people back to Jerusalem.

We can see that the soul of Jesus sought variety in his earth plane experiences. We do the same. Diversity assists us in achieving wholeness. We incarnate as male and female, rich and poor, in leadership roles and in more creative, reclusive roles. Every lifetime offers us the opportunity to develop new skills, to recall and enhance prior lifetime talents, to experience the more intuitive, nourishing nature of a female and the more assertive, intellectual nature of a male. The ultimate goal is balance and a sense of wholeness within self—androgyny.

With each lifetime, we create future experiences. For example: Jesus, as Jeshua, refused to accept the offer of the Samaritans to assist in rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem. This refusal resulted in lack of sufficient workers to do the job and the rebuilding project had to be postponed for another twenty years. Later, during his incarnation as Jesus, one of his parables tells the story of a kind Samaritan assisting a wounded man lying on the roadside, after two Jewish religious leaders ignored him. (Remember Jesus, as Jeshua, was a high priest.) Jesus also chose to travel through Samaria and to teach the Samaritan people. At that point in time, Jews did not speak to Samaritans and traveled around the territory of Samaria. When Jesus requested a drink of water from a Samaritan woman at the well, he broke the rules. Jesus had to transform the prejudices toward the Samaritans that he exhibited when incarnated as Jeshua. Our lives are also filled with opportunities to atone for past life mistakes.

Finally, during his lifetime as Jesus, he once more achieved the consciousness that allowed him to become a Wayshower back home to our true inheritance as Sons and Daughters of God. The soul of Jesus, incarnating in multiple physical bodies, gradually regained all that humanity lost when we chose to experience the plane of duality. Now, it is up to us to follow his example the rest of the way home.

FREEDOM THROUGH FORGIVENESS – A PAST LIFE MEMORY

FREEDOM THROUGH FORGIVENESS – A PAST LIFE MEMORY

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

stairstep-people5

Remembering past lives can be significant in assisting us to understand ourselves:  why we feel as we do about particular people, events, and things.  Mercury is retrograde for a few more days.  This means that soul memories of prior lifetimes more readily move into our conscious awareness.  These memories are coming forth to add understanding to our lives … to be forgiven … and to be released from our energy field.

I am sharing this story as an example of how we can research and often find a “historical scenario” into which our soul memories may fit.  Our own intuitive knowing will be verification for us as individuals.

Don’t block these memories or dismiss them!  They can be fun to explore as well as very healing and purifying.

THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE” WILL DETERMINE TO WHICH DIMENSION WE ASCEND

THE UNIVERSAL LAW OF “LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE”

WILL DETERMINE TO WHICH DIMENSION WE ASCEND

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

 

 [i]

Ascension is not a religious event.

“Our greatest desire is that as many people as possible become aware of the opportunity that Ascension presents them. It is not a religious event, but one that comes at the end of a cycle such as you are now experiencing. The changes are Universal in scope and not confined to Earth. For mankind it is a marvelous opportunity to leave the lower vibrations, and enter the higher ones and leave duality behind. We have to ask, do you once again really want to spend many lives learning the lessons that it brings, or would you rather live in joy and harmony and have a peaceful existence?

Dear Ones, the New Earth will soon carry all forward who have elected to rise up.”  —SaLuSa

Many have questions about Ascension and how to prepare.  We wonder how we can be sure we will ascend.  I write this article as one study guide for those preparing for ascension.  The Endnotes include URLs leading to additional information.

The Universe is very orderly, operating with mathematical precision.   In fact, creation is based on mathematics and unfolds in accordance with Universal Laws.  We cannot ignore Universal Laws and expect no repercussions.  These repercussions come to us in an absolutely objective manner.  We present a cause and its effect manifests.[ii]

Contrary to what religions have taught, God is not punishing us, nor does God have the need to require an atonement for our sins, i.e. mistakes.[iii]  Our Mother/Father God is absolute UNconditional Love and cannot behold anything that is not Love.  We live and move and have our being within this omnipresent energy of Divine Love.  WE are the cause of whatever harvest we reap.

While we experiment with our divine gift of freewill, we make mistakes—we plant seeds that are naturally harvested in our lives.  God perceives of nothing for which to forgive us.  As human parents, we stand back and observe as our children make mistakes and hopefully, learn from them.  All the while, we love them in the manner and to the degree in which we are capable.  How much more does our Mother/Father God love us as we stumble and fall … get up and try again?  We have an eternity in which to get it right.   There is NO need to seek forgiveness from a God who loves us UNconditionally.

What we do need is to forgive ourselves for the mistakes we make and likewise, to forgive others for their mistakes.  We incarnated on Earth’s 3rd dimensional plane of duality in order to evolve spiritually at a more rapid pace—the gift that living with challenges gives to us.  In order for us to experience challenges, someone else often must play the role of challenger.

All of us incarnate with a Soul Contract created prior to physical birth.  Those people who present difficulties in our lives are likely to be the ones who loved us enough to play that role and thereby grant us the learning experience.  Once we recognize the challenge as a gift, there is nothing to forgive.  But, few of us are aware of our own Soul Contract and many do not accept the fact of reincarnation.  We, therefore, end up with the challenge of learning forgiveness of self and others.

Here, we run into a Catch 22 dilemma in our individual lives.  We cannot forgive self if we do not love self; we cannot love self if we have not forgiven self.

This Catch 22 dilemma is likely the most prolific cause of the mistakes we make in life.  It fact, it is so socially acceptable that we may forget the resulting pocket of detrimental energy that is lodged in our energetic auric field.[iv]

In addition, Love is the key to ascension.  Jesus taught:  “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” [v]  To love your neighbor as yourself becomes a flawed love when we do not love self.  So, how can we learn to love self? [vi]I encourage you to read the Endnotes for forgiving and loving self.  In essence, we learn to love self by recognizing that we are an extension of Father/Mother God—a god spark, a child god.  If we are worthy of Father/Mother God’s UNconditional love, we are certainly worthy of self-love.

As we learn the spiritual arts of forgiveness and Love, emotions such as deep-seated anger, resentment, hatred, discrimination, and racism can be more easily resolved.  The Purple Transmuting Flame is also an excellent tool for cleansing our auric field. [vii]

 **********************

 Cleansing of our auric field is essential because the Universal Law “Like Attracts Like” will determine to which dimension we ascend.  Love attracts Love, peace attracts peace.  Likewise, anger will attract anger, hate attracts hate, violence attracts violence.

We cannot resonate to the 5th dimension if pockets of negative energy remain in our auric field.

Earth’s ascension means that there will no longer be a 3rd dimension on this planet.  Therefore, those who choose not to ascend in consciousness and to remain on 3rd dimension will be attracted to another 3rd dimensional planet.  It is likely that those who choose to remain on 3rd dimension will be unaware that a shift has taken place around the end of 2012.  Ascension is not intended to be a time of grief for anyone.  Memory of loved ones who choose to ascend will be temporarily erased for those who remain on 3rd dimension.

Many who still have some purification to accomplish will be attracted to 4th dimension, where negative energy still exists along with the positive.  The various planes of the 4th dimension vary from the lowest planes where a hellish amount of negative energy can exist to the higher planes that we have called heaven.  Much Love, beauty, and peace can exist on the higher planes of 4th dimension.  These heavenly planes are the ones described in near death experiences.  It is from these planes that Earth humans have reincarnated onto what has been the 3rd dimensional plane of duality.

Those whose energetic auric fields resonate to the 4th dimension will remain on the 4th until they have purified completely.  At the point where the soul is able to resonate to the 5th dimension, it will ascend to the 5th.  No negativity can ascend to the 5th dimension.

During this time of major shifting as numerous cycles end,[viii] Gaia (the name of the soul whose body is our planet) has invited all of her inhabitants to ascend en masse with her to the 5th dimension or higher.  Her desire is that no one miss this never before in planetary history opportunity to ascend while still residing in our physical bodies.  It is for this reason that our physical bodies have and are undergoing massive changes as they become more crystalline, and what we have called our juke DNA is re-activated.

Although individuals can and do ascend following death of the physical body, it is much more difficult to evolve to that stage of spiritual maturity alone.  Ascending en masse affords us the advantage of group energy, which can be much more powerful.  This is why it is of such importance that we take advantage of the few weeks remaining until 12/21/12 to evaluate and make sure we have purified our auric fields.[ix]

 ***********************

Sadly, Christianity has misconstrued forgiveness by teaching a God who resorted to violent means (the killing of Jesus) in order to convince himself to forgive humans of their sin.  Christians are taught that forgiveness comes through Jesus’ shed blood alone.  For that reason, many feel justified in ignoring their need for self-examination and self-growth.  Little do we realize that being taught to fear a violent, vengeful God is the perfect pathway to lack of self love and an impossibly muddled concept of love itself.  Maintaining a concept of a God who requires a blood sacrifice has attracted all the bloodshed throughout the history of religions.

Universal Law is “Like Attracts Like.”  How can a God of UNconditional Love require that one of His children be killed so He can bring himself to forgive the rest of his children?  We need to cleanse ourselves of this bloody concept.  Mother/Father God is Love, Light, and the Purifying Fire of Spirit.

Another misconception of forgiveness taught by Christianity is that of confession followed by a priest stating that God has forgiven the person, exhorting him/her to go and sin no more.  Although confession can be therapeutic for some, what is needed is the individual’s own process of forgiving self and developing the self-discipline and soul level understanding needed to gain spiritual maturity.  God has nothing to forgive.

A loving Father/Mother God does not punish.  Instead, qualified energy lives on and attracts its like component.

 *************************

 As we seek to purify, it is essential that we honestly evaluate our religious, political, and societal belief systems to make sure we are releasing all negative perceptions of life as we have know it.  

Example:  FEAR … we have been taught to fear God, enemies, terrorists, deprivation, those who are different from us…..  These pockets of fear will attract reasons to be afraid.  Fear lodged in our auric field means that we will resonate to one of the planes of the 3rd or 4th dimensions, according to the degree of fear present.

In order to prepare for ascension to the 5th dimension, we need to transmute all fear into Love.  The same process is needed for every negative energy within our auric bodies.

As we become Love, Peace, and Forgiveness, we are creating energetic auric fields that will resonate with the 5th dimension of Love and Light!

The Universal Law “Like Attracts Like” is Absolute.  We can count on it to unfold in accordance with our energetic field.

The choice is ours!

ABORTION & REINCARNATION

ABORTION & REINCARNATION

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

WHY HAS CHRISTIANITY NOT TAUGHT REINCARNATION?

 Origen (185-254 C.E.) was one of the most influential Christian thinkers of his time.  St. Jerome declared him to be “the greatest teacher of the Church after the apostles.”  St. Gregory of Nyssa calls him “the prince of Christian learning in the third century.[i]  Origen taught pre-existence of souls and reincarnation.

The Church Fathers disagreed vehemently as they sought to establish the new religion—Christianity.  All sorts of human motives clouded the issues.  Rather than simply allowing those who so desired to follow the teachings of Jesus, the ultimate goal of the Church Fathers was, according to Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons, “the real Church has one and the same faith everywhere in the world.”  [ii]  The original source for this quote is Irenaeus’ Selections From the Work Against Heresies.  The quote and the title of Irenaeus’ book speaks volumes.

In 553 C.E., the Fifth Ecumenical Council condemned Origen and his teachings as heretical:  “If anyone does not anathematize Arius, Eunomius, Macedonians, Apollinarius, Nestorius, Eutyches, and Origen, as well as their heretical books, and also all other heretics who have already been condemned and anathematized by the synods which have already been mentioned, and also all those aforesaid heretics and who persist in their error even to death: let him be anathema.”  [iii]

Webster’s Dictionary defines anathema to be a “curse solemnly pronounced by ecclesiastical authority and accompanied by excommunication.”

WHAT IS REINCARNATION?

 Since there is controversy evident on the internet over whether or not Origen taught reincarnation, I’ll quote from the Gifford Lectures of the Reverend William R. Inge, past dean of Saint Paul’s Cathedral in London and a scholar of distinction:

“Origen takes the step which to every Greek seemed the logical corollary of belief in immortality—he taught the pre-existence of Souls.  The Soul is immaterial, and therefore, has neither beginning of days nor end of life….  So convincing is this Platonic faith to him, that he cannot restrain his impatience at the crude beliefs of traditionalists about the last day and resurrection of the dead.  The predictions in the Gospels cannot have been intended literally.  How can material bodies be recompounded, every particle of which has passed into many other bodies?  To which body do these molecules belong?  So, he says scornfully, men fall into the lowest depths of absurdity, and take refuge in the pious assurance that ‘everything is possible with God….’

 As for the ‘conflagration’ [at the end of the world], Origen, as is well known, follows the Stoics in teaching … that there will be a series of world-orders.  But whereas Greek [Stoic] philosophy could admit no prospect except a perpetual repetition of the same alternate evolution and involution, a never-ending systole and diastole of the cosmic life, Origen holds that there is a constant upward progress.  Each world-order is better than the last….  The conflagration is really a purifying fire [iv]….  All Spirits were created blameless, all must at last return to their original perfection.  The education of Souls is continued in successive worlds. [v] 

Reincarnation is a natural expression of eternal life.  Origen’s teachings are based on Earth’s 3rd dimensional plane of duality where Earth humans have acquired negative karma while learning via the challenges found within an environment of good and evil.  This negative karma must be purified or balanced—thus all must at last return to their original perfection.  

Now that we are preparing to ascend to higher dimensions, reincarnation will occur differently.  On the higher dimensions, the soul may occupy the same body for hundreds or thousands of years … decide to discard it and rest … then take on another body and continue the work she/he has chosen to do.

Because the Church condemned as heretical a belief in and life orientation including a knowledge of reincarnation, people of Western cultures have not known of their own pre-existence.  As a result, our entire theology and philosophy of life have been formulated in terms of one life to live.  This has resulted in Western societies not knowing who we are as human beings.  We conceive of life as beginning with conception and ending with physical death.  The traditional religious concept of eternal life is something like walking the golden streets of heaven for eternity or burning in hell for eternity.   We wonder why we are here … what is the purpose in life … we think, “surely there is more than this.”  We say we love God, but deep down we are afraid of a God who can do anything God wants to do.

 WHAT DOES REINCARNATION HAVE TO DO WITH ABORTION?

Life on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality is based on the individual Soul Contract.  Before incarnating, each Soul—with the guidance of spiritual teachers/guides—plans the major events for the forthcoming incarnation.  These plans include selecting our parents and discussing plans with them.  No one is an accident … parents and future children already know each other.

While living on the 3rd dimension, we forget that linear time does not exist on higher planes … there is ONLY NOW.  We also forget that ALL CONSCIOUSNESS IS CONNECTED—communication with all beings is easy, regardless of where each being is located within the cosmos.  In fact, if we think it, we can be there.

We also tend not to know or forget that our Souls travel while our physical bodies sleep.  The individuals who have contracted to be our parents can easily meet with us on the inner planes while their physical bodies sleep.  In this way, we can keep up to date with what is going on with those who contracted to be our parents.

Soul contracts are not carved in stone.  The conditions in which our future parents find themselves can change.  A Soul contract includes multiple people, all of whom have freewill.  Both parents and future children have the opportunity to discuss whether or not they desire to continue in accordance with the Soul contract.  There is no punishment, no judgment for not doing so.  The purpose for incarnating is to grow spiritually according to each individual’s Soul needs.  It would be a waste of universal energy for a Soul to incarnate, knowing that the purposes for taking on a physical body could not be accomplished.

If physical pregnancy occurs, abortion does not mean that the unborn child is killed.  The unborn child is still in the higher realms and very likely has agreed to the abortion before it occurs. 

funnel

A funnel aptly illustrates the life of an unborn child.  The Soul of the unborn child remains in the higher realms, represented by the wide portion of the funnel.  Contrary to the one life to live concept of birth, the soul incarnating is free until the time of birth when it must enter the narrow part of the funnel in order to take on a physical body.

We on the 3rd dimension think of birth as joyful and it is for the family.  But the Soul has given up its freedom and open spaces.  Babies sleep a lot so they can return to higher planes and escape restriction.  Gradually, they adjust to the confinement and sleep less.

The newborn child also has the option of making changes in the Soul contract.  Each Soul is given a period of two years in linear time to evaluate the physical environment and determine how well his/her Soul’s reasons for incarnating can be achieved.  If the child so chooses, he/she can return to inner realms during the first two years of physical plane life.  We often call these “returns” crib deaths.  The parents are grief-stricken, while the child is joyful and free from life in the narrow portion of the funnel.

Depriving Western cultures of the knowledge of reincarnation has sadly been a means of control by the powers that be.  We are controlled by a fear of death, fear of extinction, fear of spending an eternity in a non-existent physical place called hell.  The fight over abortion serves to divert attention while the powerful carry on their undercover activities.  Think of all the energy that millions put into fighting over abortion, birth control, planned parenthood during the 2012 elections.

Lack of knowledge of reincarnation, the Soul contract, and the Soul’s ability to change that contract has created untold suffering.  This lack of knowledge has been a major means of enslaving Western cultures.

Our Mother/Father God knows only Unconditional Love and created a cosmos based only in that Love!  As we ascend into full consciousness, our access to all knowledge enters our awareness.  “Now I know only in part/ then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.” [vi]

ANSWER TO A MOTHER’S QUESTION

Angels of the World Mother

Painting from Geoffrey Hodson’s The Kingdom of the Gods

 Question:  I can’t believe the Soul is not in the baby’s body during the gestation period.  My daughter has memories that I share of her time in the womb.

Answer:  The Soul of the future child can be very much present with the Mother while not being within the baby’s physical body.  Mother and child can communicate and do.  Enjoying the pregnancy, loving the unborn child, playing music for it … all can be a part of the process.  Our physical cells have memory and all of the experiences during gestation will remain in the cells’ memory.  The fact that the Soul does not enter the physical body until birth, or shortly thereafter, does not lessen the closeness that parents experience with their child during pregnancy.  The Soul is experiencing along with the parents, while remaining free of the restraints that come with entering a physical body.

My reason for writing the article was to help those who are so concerned over killing babies realize that there is no death of the Soul involved in abortion.  Death of the Soul does not exist.  Losing a child through miscarriage or abortion can be painful to the parents because on our present 3rd dimensional plane of duality, we are taught one life to live.  As a result, what we perceive as death holds a finality that is painful to bare.

Sadly, the lie that abortion = killing babies is propagated by those who seek control via manipulating and lying to the people.  This emotionally saturated issue can be used by the power elite to determine, or greatly impact, the outcome of events as huge as a presidential election.

Thankfully, when we ascend in a few short weeks, we will know that ALL IS CREATED WITH LOVE!

 INTERVIEWS

 

NANCY DETWEILER

 In this show Lorna & I discuss death of a loved one … life after death … and how our loved ones continue to be with us.  I encourage all ministers to listen to this show (sorry for the echo in the audio), as it can assist you in counseling with those congregants who experience the return to spirit of a loved one.  We discuss how religions control humanity by withholding knowledge of reincarnation and that, in truth, we are all magnificent beings living within the energy of God’s unconditional love.

 FOOD FOR THOUGHT FROM LISTENERS’ REACTIONS

 “For the first time in my life, I reflected on the idea of the subconscious impact that accepting Christianity has on governing the experience one will encounter in their life.”

 NANCY’S QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO PONDER:  How does Christianity’s teaching of a God who requires salvation through violence impact my opinions of war, violence, and lack of forgiveness?  Can I accept a violent God while also accepting a God of unconditional love?

 “It is just as much fun to me as watching my favorite comedy sitcoms, because you both bring such warm and intriguing energy. On top of that, you are also sharing meaningful wisdom that will greatly benefit the people, the planet, and beyond!  I am always left yearning to hear more as your show finishes.”

NANCY’S QUESTIONS FOR YOU TO PONDER:  Why is attending church not exciting?  Why do I not leave church yearning to hear more?  What is my responsibility within this scenario?

INTERVIEWING

NANCY DETWEILER

THE SECOND SEGMENT OF A FOUR WEEK SERIES

 

In this segment, Lorna & Nancy discuss esoteric astrology as a means of getting to know self and the individual Soul Contract each of us create with our spiritual guides before we incarnate on Earth.  Esoteric astrology is based upon reincarnation and the recognition that we are continually evolving into greater consciousness.

The biblical book of Job is the story of our journey into enlightenment or ascension.  Job’s story ends with him telling God:  “I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees thee.”  (quoting from Job 42:5 – Lamsa’s translation from the Aramaic of the Peshitta—the language used by the earliest of Christians)
