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.

The home of the Soul

Where is ‘Home’ and does it exist? The topic ofGoing Home’ is among the great debates and discussions in religions and spiritualists. Besides Heaven, others may call it returning to Source or the Divine. Ultimately all our souls will return ‘Home’ as the human body can only physically be maintained naturally for a limited period of time, whereas the Soul is eternal. Others believe they are from other ‘systems’ and desire to return to their planet. There is no evidence, so one can prove or disprove the theories, however it is logical to assume even if the soul originated from another ‘system’ it would still be subject to the same criteria of soul preparation before incarnation, i.e., a choice of parents/soul groups/lessons to learn from.

The increased yearning of the need to return home before time stems from disillusionment and difficult and painful incarnations that reflect the modern society of globalization, materialism and a need for one-upmanship. It belies the nature of lesson learning, even though lessons are not supposed to be easy, nor are they to be a constant endurance test or painstaking any longer than necessary.

‘Home’ is a base to feel safe, secure, comfortable and where you can be yourself, not just a building but an environment. Those fortunate enough to have found their ‘home’ can grow and live in harmony, many of us are still seeking where we feel we need to be and want to be.

The Soul may grow, but when it feels lost or disorientated it has a strong desire to go ‘Home’, just as we do on earth when we’ve had a bad day. It’s symbolic of a place where one can be at peace and with no judgment or negativity, so if we strive to rid humanity of these things, then earth would be an easier and more pleasant experience.

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.

Choosing our soul group

There are many theories about how we choose our parents, siblings and our soul group; that it is predetermined before incarnation. However, if we look at the bigger picture, our parents and grandparents would have been involved and made soul contracts before their incarnation so if any party chooses to divert, how does that change the plan?

Consider this theory, you wanted a sibling close in age to help you learn a specific lesson, but your parents cannot have another child or one gets divorced, how does that change things? I would venture a theory that you have a choice of who will be your parents, to be born nearby to become a neighbor or best friend or even adopted. Somehow the soul group will come together, but plans can be adjusted.

Members of the soul group don’t stay indefinitely as much as we would like them to, that’s why we miss them and yearn for them. We must understand they have their own path and goals to follow and they have other soul contracts to fulfill. That’s why I consider soul bonds stronger than blood ties; they are eternal even if blood ties in the physical world are deemed to be stronger.

Many wonder why they chose their parents, some for karmic reasons and role reversal and some because geographically and era wise it enabled the soul group to connect. That’s why some children feel disconnected from their families; it could be an incarnation of convenience or to be born in the same bloodline of a relative who is a member of the soul group.

I wonder sometimes if my incarnation was responsible for my parents arranged marriage, both are so disconnected from me, and my brother too. However, there are reasons my brother is around and we were bonded and I feel I have now repaid what I needed to. He is part of my soul group, but I feel for the last time, as I no longer have that bond or desire to protect him as I once did. Soul groups do usually last, but some will serve their purpose as the group becomes smaller once you have achieved what you needed.

This is why Old Souls have smaller soul groups or ones where members do not need to appear in every incarnation. That’s why they are seen as loners or hermits, because they don’t need their soul group, or only a select few. We recognize our soul group when we necessary; those bonds will endure, but will fade as we discover our goals and purposes.

Soul groups and the twin flame myth

There are various myths surrounding the phenomena of twin flames; that the soul splits into two and the two parts incarnate at the same time to become whole; two souls in the same soul group incarnate at the same time at the same soul stage of growth or the misconception that a twin flame is soul mate, a destined partner.

I don’t believe in twin flames, but I believe that there are soul groups. Not all members will opt to incarnate at the same time, as some may choose to guide instead. The purpose of a soul group is to support each other in lessons during their incarnations. Often the roles will be reversed in alternate incarnations for unresolved issues or incomplete lessons that get repeated. A child in one incarnation may have been the great-grandparent in another; it is not uncommon for family members to incarnate into the same family especially when karmic debt is involved. There is an illusion that all soul connections are all positive, however, some soul lessons maybe harsh and painful, but are ones that your soul group have agreed to assist you in learning. Looking at it from a different perspective, it is positive as they are helping you achieve your soul goals and enable your soul growth.

Many members of the soul group will not remain with you throughout the incarnation; some will appear briefly for specific lessons and others will support you through periods of evolution. It explains why certain people are drawn to each and why some drift in and out of one’s life. I have found younger souls have a wider soul group as they will have more lessons to learn and require a variety of ways to achieve their goals. Older souls will have a smaller group, not only because they have fewer lessons, but many incarnate as a supportive role.

The concept of a soul mate also seems impractical, what if the soul mate chooses an exit point or does not see the signs and follows an alternate path? A more plausible theory is a soul group where there are several potential soul connections depending on the paths each chooses. The question arises from failed relationships, they can be seen as soul lessons to experience things from the relationship, be it loss, betrayal or being on different paths. Each interaction helps us to grow and pushes our boundaries as we learn what is right or wrong for us. Searching for a soul mate can lead to disappointment when idealistic expectations are not realized. Instead, it creates a distraction and sidetracks us from our true purpose of allowing our souls to grow and learn. It is comforting to share the journey with another, but there are some lessons one must learn alone. Often, once the main lessons are learned, then the door opens for a soul connection relationship to materialize.

Too many people search and are under the illusion that a soul mate or twin flame will bring them happiness and complete them. Often, that is not the case once you understand the true nature of soul groups and what your soul goals are. Sometimes people do find their soul connection early on and grow together, but some soul lessons will not be pleasant ones, but necessary ones. A better option is to be open to supporting your fellow soul group and allowing those connections to grow and flourish. I believe if you stop looking, your soul connections will find their way to you—just as planned!
