Reincarnation: A Saga of the Soul

A saga is a dramatic long story that can encompass generations and centuries. Each time the Soul chooses a new incarnation, it’s a new book in the saga, containing most of the same characters and new ones added in. If we consider it as a concept, it helps make reincarnation understandable.

During an incarnation, many of us make mistakes and wish to begin a new chapter. Some of us want to start a new book instead and that’s what reincarnation is; a sequel and follow on from the last book.

The Soul is the main character; there will be memories and lessons learned, others they have liked and those who they prefer to avoid. Each book (incarnation), will be made up of long and short chapters and that is life on earth; a series of books that continue on from where the last one left off. All are stored in a library, a Hall of Records called the Akashic Records; located in the æther of the Spirit Realm.

Exit points

When a particularly challenging incarnation is planned, the Soul can choose to insert a few exit points where they can leave earlier than anticipated. There are various reasons for this; the incarnation it is too painful, the exit would help another with their goals or a Soul Contract cannot be fulfilled.

This isn’t like a short cut, but these will be at significant times during the incarnation, where struggles occur the most. Perhaps someone is at a crossroads and cannot find a path or they feel they’ve done all that they can? Choosing to take one path can lead to an exit point and taking another may not. These exit points may come in the form of tragic accidents, comas or other near death experience. The Soul is given a choice to leave or stay, a bit like an opt-out clause.

Mature and Old Souls are more likely to have exit points in their incarnations, as they will struggle more and may want to go back and plan again; perhaps they were too ambitious or other circumstances have led to the incarnation not going as planned? Old Souls are likely to build in a few exit points if they do not feel their purpose can be achieved or if they aren’t needed to support their soul group, as they usually have few other goals to achieve. As a result the purpose of the incarnation no longer exists or they have achieved what they wanted much faster than anticipated.

Not everyone will choose to have exit points or will need them. Altruistic incarnations and Young Souls rarely need them, because there is usually only one goal. The most common types of exit points are the near miss accident or when people come out of a coma suddenly. The Soul has chosen to remain and Guides and the Higher Self play important roles in guiding the Soul into the making the right decision.

Exit points can also act as a wake up call, to remind you of your journey and path and sometimes to nudge you onto the correct one. Maybe the Soul got distracted and added the exit point as a sign post to help them focus on the correct path? For each of us it will be different, but suicide is not an exit point. We all have free will and suicide does indicate that exit points should have been included in an incarnation as the Soul was struggling. From this the Soul will learn, and while we have good intentions to fulfill the Soul Goals, surviving in the human jungle has its own dangers and perils that cannot always be foreseen.

Elements of the Soul Purpose

One of the aims of life is to learn lessons or challenges. Unless you are a young or new soul the chances are your incarnations will have fewer and less harsh challenges in order for you to learn. I call them challenges, as realistically when we face them, they are that indeed. It would be inhuman to go into a situation such as watching a loved one being murdered and consider it a lesson, but a challenge on how to cope with the situation and deal with loss and remain strong. We have opted to learn particular lessons, to work on them, however these can seem like a utopic notion we perceived before incarnation versus reality that become juxtaposed. On the physical plane (here) we are subject to external players that affect and influence events, emotions and can hinder these lessons and they become more of a challenge.

So what happens? Do we fail? Suffer pain in a difficult incarnation to fulfill the purpose of the lesson? Hopefully we would have planned for member of our soul group to support and  assist us. Also our guides should recognize this and step in. Otherwise, we have free will to stop, take stock and reevaluate and change our thought patterns towards the situation. The question is, will this lesson if unfulfilled for whatever reason remain in our soul contract for the next incarnation or that of our descendants. Theories dictate that it is the case, unless the contract is amended or re-written.

The understanding of the process is paramount to know why and how–a karmic overdraft is predestined for potential descendants before they have even decided on an incarnation. By understanding what we need to do and our limits and boundaries, we can make our incarnations less burdensome and healthier.  The realization means we can achieve more in a credible manner, know what is not feasible and find alternative ways to release the lesson or to tackle it. Sometimes we may have thought we have learned a lesson, but it was not the actual lesson we had aimed for or a deeper level is required.

Altruistic incarnations differ, as their purpose is to assist in providing the lesson, in many cases becoming a victim. Like anything, bad experiences deter us from repeating the same, delaying incarnations or choosing not to return. Many in recent times have decided this is to be their final incarnation because of how humanity has evolved.

I ask why if I am an evolved Old Soul did I opt to reincarnate and put myself through the pain of humanity? Perhaps to perfect some elements, to see things through different eyes, to be more rational? Old Souls were asked to reincarnate to assist and guide younger souls, a brave or foolhardy choice? Similar to an altruistic incarnation in some ways, both addressing lessons and providing the lesson too. An unenviable task.
