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.

Step In Guides

Many people have theories on guides, do we see, hear or feel them or trust they are there. I believe we have different types of guides; an ancestral guide, a life guide and guides that appear for different phases of your life. Some people know their names and others can hear them or feel their presence. Each guide has a different way of conveying messages and some think they are disconnected if they don’t know their guides name or can’t describe them but shouldn’t. We all some help, but when we are close to completing our goals or have missed them, we could do with some direct help. Spiritual guidance is usually subtle, for some people, they need a no-nonsense direct approach.

Guides have their own personalities and ways of communication. They can only do so much, often they will show you images and you have to interpret them. As for hearing them unless you are in another realm (for example dreaming or astral projection) it would be hard to understand what they say as the frequency is so high which is why they show images or put things in your path as a clue.

Occasionally other people’s guides will come to me and ask me to help their charges that need a direct, hands on approach. I am not sure what kind of reputation I have in the spirit realms, but occasionally spirits will come through specifically looking for me! In some ways it is more than lightworking as their guides are guiding me and not mine. At one point it was confused until another reader confirmed it wasn’t my guide as well and knew I was asked to help someone who wasn’t getting a message. I can’t say it was easy, more emotional and traumatic as I was close to this person, which is why I was asked to help and then I asked to be released once I had done what I could. Learning to hand the reigns back over to the main guide is something I have been learning and trying not to see it as a failure, but there has to be a cut off point when I feel I can do no more. I accept the assignment of helping, but it is not my sole job and must remember I have other charges and goals to work on.

I see my role as a ‘step in’ to help out and to convey a particular message that someone has ignored or missed and then leave. How is it different from lightworking? Lightworking is the spirit world calling us to help all that need support, but guiding has a sole purpose when matters are urgent. I feel the person’s guide around or in one case smelt them and one even took over my dreams as my own guides took a step back. When I am lightworking there are no hard and fast rules, but I tend to pick ta charge up and put them back on their path, then gradually I become less important in their lives and drift away when my job is done.

Being a step in guide is more intense as I balance what I feel I can do with what their guides would like me to do. These charges have usually been through extensive repeated patterns and are tough to get through. I like challenges and this is certainly that. It’s a bit like working on a project non-stop living and breathing it. Afterwards you need a break and to let go. I have learned I am not responsible for the outcome, I can only put the options in front of the charge and spell them out; only they can choose which path to follow. Most of these charges will be close to fulfilling their soul purpose or have missed all the signs that they had planned. Their guides want them to succeed and need to give them a direct nudge. It’s a bit like being a subtle fixer; if they still don’t see the message or fulfill their soul goals, then they will repeat them in their next incarnation. I have a feeling some of them already have been there, but time is infinite…

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.
