Reincarnation: The Many Lives We Live

Reincarnation of our souls is the concept of the soul experiencing many lifetimes in different forms or physical housings. Our souls are made up of energy which take many forms throughout our existence. Heaven is where our souls are born, created directly through love from the omnipotent soul of God. It is here where we create plans for our spiritual journeys in the form of soul contracts for specific lifetimes. The soul contracts contain a plan in outline form for the lessons we will learn in the upcoming lifetime of our choosing. During the creation of these plans, we work with the members of our soul groups to integrate our plans in order to help one another learn the lessons agreed to in the contracts. It is important to note that the ways the lessons will unfold on Earth are not determined until we arrive here. Events are orchestrated in real time based on the lessons we agreed to prior to birth, as well as the freewill decisions we make and the resulting effects. It is an incredibly precise and complex process which is in place for every living being on Earth and for which there are innumerable outcomes.

There are many locations we can visit throughout the universe for different purposes and lifetimes. Earth is just one of the locations we can visit for a lifetime of lessons. Once we have completed our soul contracts, we return to Heaven, which is the hub from which we were created and to which we return after every journey. Our main soul groups, which include our immediate family and friends, regroup in Heaven. After a period of rest and relaxation, we determine where our next journeys will take place which will best suit our needs for the evolution of our souls. For the purpose of this article, I will focus on our experiences as human beings on a spiritual journey on Earth.

Why Leave Heaven for a Lifetime on Earth

 In Heaven, the experience for our souls is different. We learn lessons there, but not at the same pace as we do on Earth. Here, we have the gift of the human ego which propels learning through negativity. It acts as a challenge to humankind to learn how to manage this mechanism in our minds which is the source of our fears, regrets, anxieties, and doubts.

When we are born on earth, information about the soul contract we agreed to in this lifetime is veiled from us in order to provide the opportunity to learn without bias. The information, also known as our Akashic Records, is stored in our souls, as well as in the Hall of Records in Heaven. Portions of the records can be accessed through spiritual means, such as past life regressions, meditations, and more. The records contain all our individual soul contracts and experiences for all our lifetimes in the past and the current lifetime, as well as information in outline form about potential lessons for future lifetimes.

A Lifetime on Earth is the Accelerated Course for Soul Evolution

Our journey through a lifetime on Earth is what I refer to as the accelerated course for soul evolution. The experiences we have here are designed to maximize our learning opportunities through situations which challenge all our knowledge and beliefs about ourselves, our world, our existence, each other, the universe, God, Heaven, and more. It is a journey of rediscovery about the information contained within our souls which contains all the answers we seek. It takes hundreds, if not thousands, of lifetimes to grow as a soul.

Younger Souls and Older Souls

Younger souls have the tendency to operate more from a place of fear because they have not learned how to manage the human ego and do not yet realize that love is the reason for our existence. Lower level energies, such as selfishness and greed, tend to occupy the thought processes of younger souls, which leads them to take actions that are harmful to themselves and others. In contrast, older souls operate more from a place of love and often put others before themselves. Some of their lessons include learning how to establish a balance of giving and receiving. When on a truly accelerated path, older souls tend to go through very difficult and challenging experiences early in life in order to get them up to speed with what they need to accomplish later in life.

On Earth, our experiences are intertwined. Older souls help younger souls with life lessons and younger souls help older souls with life lessons. Each of us helps one another through our journeys through the cause and effect of our actions and the circumstances we are presented with. The decisions we make determine whether we learn the lessons we are meant to learn. If a lesson has not been completed, it will return with a different set of circumstances until we have gained the necessary knowledge for our souls.

Because we are on different levels of soul evolution, it means that not everyone will understand or grasp the concepts about our existence in this lifetime. This does not mean older souls are better than younger souls, as all souls have their individual purposes. As we grow from a child to an adult in life, we attend school to learn. The same process happens with our souls through many lifetimes. Each lesson we learn helps us move forward with the evolution of our souls and the time when our souls will be reintegrated with God.

Evidence of Past Lives

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the great composer, was a child prodigy who could replay a song after hearing it once and who composed complex music scores at a very young age. When a soul exhibits the ability to complete intricate new tasks with great ease, it is a sign the soul lived many lifetimes and has performed similar tasks in those other lifetimes with great skill. These residual experiences are stored within the memory of the soul and can also be triggered by similar circumstances in our current lifetime. The information is not limited to skill sets. It also contains experiences that deeply affected the soul, enough to cause a carryover into this lifetime. For instance, an unexplained fear of fire or water in which the soul has not had an experience in this lifetime to cause it may be able to be traced back to experiences in past lifetimes. In some instances, it is a foreshadowing of events to come.

Have you ever experienced an instant connection with someone upon your first meeting with them? This may be because of a connection in a past lifetime or in Heaven. Are you drawn to specific cultures, music, activities, locations, and events from history? One or more of your past lifetimes may have included experiences from these times. Have you ever been somewhere and felt you had been there before, even though it is your first visit? Again, this may be a reference to a previous lifetime in which you spent time in this location.

There are fascinating stories about toddlers talking about people and places in history for which they would have no previous knowledge. They do it with such detail that it cannot be confused with anything other than a past life experience. Other toddlers and very young children refer to how they met or knew their deceased grandmother or grandfather in Heaven. These memories of the soul are strong for the young children because they have just come from Heaven. Unfortunately, by the age of five, most of these old memories have faded as new memories begin filling the mind with current life experiences.

Past Life Regressions

There are many ways to delve into our souls to rediscover past life experiences. One of the ways to do this is to perform or experience a past life regression. This practice is usually performed by a medium trained to use their gifts to receive information about past lives. You can also use your own meditation time as an opportunity to ask to have past life information revealed. Ask your spirit guides for assistance with the process and remain open and objective to everything you see, feel, hear, taste, and smell during your meditation. The information will provide clues and glimpses into some of your past lives, as well as your connections with your immediate soul groups. Within meditation journeys, you may discover the different roles and genders you experienced which provided elements of knowledge that deepen your appreciation for people from all walks of life.

Soul Connections

Throughout our existences as souls, we are connected to one another through the love within the hearts of our spirits. The experiences we share create a powerful bond which stays with us through this lifetime and beyond. For now, make the most of the time you have on Earth and look toward situations you encounter as opportunities to learn and grow as a soul. Appreciate those around you as you are all on this journey together, helping one another to evolve on a spiritual level.

Glimpses of Heaven

Sunset on the Ocean

People often ask me, what is Heaven like and what are my loved ones doing up there? As a Spirit Medium, I have the unique ability to communicate with those on the Other Side, and in the process, they often show me glimpses of Heaven.

Our universe is much bigger and more diverse than most people on Earth can fathom. There are other worlds and dimensions which we travel to as souls for unique learning experiences. Our home base is Heaven, which is the starting point from which we are created and it is the place we return to after our many adventures to other worlds and dimensions. As souls depart for the Earth and other destinations, other souls return to be welcomed home.

Heaven is not only our home base, but it is also the place where we rest and recuperate after our adventures. It is a place of healing, love, knowledge, and learning. It is a hive of activity with beings coming and going, beings actively involved in the inner-workings of Heaven, magnificent reunions with gala parties for the recently returned, lifetime reviews, and much more.

Arrival in Heaven

Upon arrival in Heaven, we are greeted by a welcoming Angel or loved one in spirit who proceeds to help us become re-oriented to Heaven. Our guide helps us to navigate our way through Heaven and to visit loved ones on Earth to see the events occurring since our passing. Many in spirit are in attendance for our memorial services and life celebrations. Until we are ready to visit our loved ones on Earth on our own, our guides stay with us. Older souls are much faster at being able to communicate on their own across dimensions. Younger souls can take classes in Heaven to help them learn how to communicate via their spirits, send signs, appear in dreams, and manipulate energy on Earth to move objects, and more.

Creating Your World

Heaven truly is what we make of it. Resources are only limited by our minds and the levels we reached in our soul’s evolvement. We can create homes using thought and they can be whatever we want them to be. For instance, you can have a quaint cottage by a lakeshore or a majestic castle with many rooms. Whatever you would like your personal slice of Heaven to be is what it is. Beautiful imagery of homes and collective spaces, which are the collaborative efforts of many to create environments, have been shared with me, including 1940s nightclubs in Harlem, New York, Victorian-era towns and cities, stunningly beautiful parks with elegant flowers and trees, ancient temples from Atlantis and Lemuria, and much, much more. Often, loved ones in spirit show me the homes they grew up in recreated in Heaven, as well as dream homes with glorious views of mountains, gleaming bodies of water, and rolling hills with amazingly green grass. The colors up there are gorgeous and much more intense than they are on Earth.

We also have the power to control our personal appearance in Heaven. I have frequently seen loved ones in spirit, including pets, as the younger versions of themselves enjoying their time in Heaven. We usually opt to look like we did on Earth because that is what we are used to; however, it is usually the younger versions of ourselves in our prime.

It is my impression that the level of what you can do in Heaven and where you reside correlates with the level your soul has reached with its evolution. For example, a younger soul who committed crimes on Earth because they have not yet learned the way of love, do not have the same abilities and access to certain areas of Heaven. In addition, there are many spiritual hospitals for these souls, as well as institutions of learning to help them to better comprehend the true purpose of their existence. Older souls not only have greater expertise, but also greater access. They are free to create what they wish and can travel to more locations in Heaven and beyond.

Activities in Heaven

In Heaven, time does not run on the same cycles as it does on Earth. I have not yet been provided with an equivalent measure, and this may be because one does not exist or that it is to remain a mystery from humankind for now. However, I do know we have plenty of time up there to explore a whole host of activities.

After a lifetime on Earth, we often need time to recover from the rough and tumble ride we encountered. All of our physical ailments automatically disappear because our souls are no longer housed in a physical body. Our minds and souls also receive healing. Those in need of deep healing have shown me themselves in the Spiritual Hospital, which is much like a mental health hospital on Earth with angels in attendance to facilitate the healing process. As on Earth, there are inpatient programs and outpatient programs depending on the needs of the soul. As healing occurs, these souls are gradually integrated into existence in Heaven in order to fully enjoy the paradise of Heaven’s offerings. Those who have healed or are ready to fully enjoy their time in Heaven, often send me images of themselves relaxing and participating in their favorite pastimes, such as fishing, creating art, and spending time with people and pets who have crossed over before them. Because of the love shared between souls, loved ones in spirit often visit their friends and family here on Earth to see how they are doing. They are allowed to help in certain ways with our lives through the sending of signs and messages, as well as taking part in events with the approval of the Archangels. They cannot, however, alter the soul contracts we agreed to prior to birth. Because of this, it may sometimes seem as if God, the Archangels, and loved ones in spirit are not helping you. In actuality they are because they are helping you to fulfill the lessons you agreed to learn.

Because our souls continue to exist and grow, Heaven offers opportunities to learn new skills and meet other souls, similar to the way we can on Earth. Images and information has been sent to me during readings of loved ones in spirit taking classes in music and art, as well as spirit-to-spirit communication and how to work with the energies on Earth and in Heaven. Many times, I have seen younger souls who have passed meeting new souls and forming relationships with them.

In Heaven, we can also volunteer for jobs. They are not like jobs on Earth. You choose what you would like to do, such as becoming a guardian angel, a muse, or greeter at Heaven’s gates. Many souls enjoy being of service and Heaven offers many opportunities to bring to your spirit what you need most.

The Hall of Records

Within our magnificent home base of Heaven, there is a Hall of Records which contains information about everything that was, is, and will be for each of our souls. The files, which are referred to as the Akashic Records, contain our soul contracts for each past and present lifetime, as well as every detail of the lifetimes we have lived and are living, as well as information about future events for our souls. The future events are written in outline form and can be updated depending upon the actions we take in our current lifetimes. This is because of free will. There are events which are scheduled to occur in alignment with agreed-to soul contracts; however, the minute details may not be written yet due to constantly changing conditions here on Earth based on the decisions we make.

When I am shown the Hall of Records, I see a large, white Parthenon-style building with a wide set of stairs leading up to a landing with six regal columns. Scattered throughout the image are people dressed in many different styles of clothing, as well as scholars and attendants in comfortable white or cream colored tunics and gowns. Past life information can be accessed within the Hall of Records in an interactive manner, which allows visitors to delve into the past to retrieve information in a way that immerses them in the experiences.

The Archangels, who are tasked with overseeing everything having to do with mankind and Earth, retain control of the Hall of Records and work with many orders of Angels to help facilitate events on Earth which coincide with soul plans and lessons for all on Earth. Guardian angels, some of whom are people who lived on Earth who volunteer to help their loved ones, are also given tasks and permission to send communications by the Archangels. For those who volunteer to be guardian angels to loved ones on Earth, they are given specific access to the Akashic Records for those they are watching over. They are allowed to communicate approved information through dreams, signs, and spirit to spirit communication – either directly or through a Spirit Medium.

Epiphanies from Heaven and the Universal Mind

Heaven is an imagination works, or conglomeration, where all ideas are hatched and sent through epiphanies to souls meant to bring them to fruition based on their soul contracts. The idea hatchery is often referred to as the Universal Mind. The ideas, which come from the Creator, are disseminated at the appropriate time and place by God and the Archangels. It is then the job of the Archangels to assign a muse to share the ideas with the beings destined to bring the ideas to fruition on Earth or in another world or dimension.  Specific orders of angels, as well as loved ones in spirit who have volunteered to serve as muses, are responsible for the actual transmission of the ideas to the matching soul. There is a significant amount of real-time organization which takes place in order to facilitate this process. Many events and circumstances need to be devised at the proper times in order to bring ideas to light with the proper resources for the recipient.  It is an incredible process which is also employed for the events and circumstances in our daily lives, in which we are placed in situations which encourage optimum opportunities for working through the lessons we agreed to in our soul contracts.

Why Do We Leave Heaven?

People ask why do we leave Heaven if it is so wonderful? We leave to accelerate the growth of our souls. The lack of negativity in Heaven provides a certain kind of learning that is missing the great challenges life on Earth or what other worlds may offer. We come down here for strong and fast lessons, but then return to Heaven when our lessons have been completed. There are very important reasons why we need to be here and why we have the experiences we do. One of the most important is to find our way back to the love within from which we were created. Once we do return to Heaven, we have time to rest and enjoy activities we love while waiting for our loved ones on Earth to join us at their designated time. The love we share with one another keeps us connected across all dimensions because love is at the heart of our very existence. Once we are reunited with our closest soul groups, we decide where and when we would like our next adventure to begin.
