It’s synchronistic if you are reading this and for myself for writing it. It is part of each of our soul’s plan. We are meant to cross one another’s path at this exact moment.
Do you wonder about the synchronicities of your life and why and how they continue to unfold throughout your life? Do you wonder why you are even here and what your purpose is? I think we have all asked these questions to ourselves especially during life challenges. The truth is we planned this life from the spirit world with our soul family, prior to incarnating. This life plan is a contract for our soul/sole purpose of evolving our spirit and gaining wisdom through acquired life lessons here in the school of earth. There is a plan and your soul knows what it is.
“Important encounters are planned by the souls long before the bodies see each other.” Paulo Coelho. From the moment we are born our soul plan is put into motion. Our plan this time may be to sacrifice our life so that others have the opportunity to learn from our particular life challenge or our early passing. Or others may be the ones that take on that role. We are each other’s teachers and so is our entire life journey. It is this journey and soul plan that our life synchronicities are based upon, coupled with free will. Make no mistake, free will gives us choice, but no matter what the choices, we are will ultimately fulfill our soul plan.
Pema Chodron wrote, “Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.” I think we all can resonate with this quote, including myself! Have you ever felt like you were living the movie Ground Hog Day? The concept is the same. Bill Murray’s character re-lives the same day over and over until he gets it right. The universe will subtly deliver situations to us until we learn the lesson. The key is acceptance of what is and finding the positive in every life moment, for the lesson shall be unveiled through this mind set. And, sometimes that is the lesson/plan, acceptance of the ebb and flow of this life. Every single one of us are part of a whole like a woven strand within a blanket. Each strand has a purpose within the blanket of life and we take the lessons of that purpose back with us to the spirit world.
As a soul experiencing human life, we have emotions, ego, free will and the yin and yang of life – all of which are inclusive of our soul plan. It is very clear to me now, but wasn’t earlier in my life, what my purpose is! I am a psychic medium and was born one. As a child I was aware of spirit, animals and nature speaking to me. As my life journey progressed, many, many life challenges were delivered to me by the universe and my spirit became crushed. My ego built a hard protective shell around it and my heart for decades, ultimately leaving me to live through my ego for decades.
An example of Pema Chodron’s quote as written above is I endured physical, emotional and mental abuse over and over until I learned that it wasn’t my fault. My ego continued to protect me while I continued to walk my journey, as one of my biggest lessons was to accept rejection and abandonment. Another lesson was that there is NO such thing as perfection! My father raised me to believe that there was perfection to be achieved and I must do it or else. My father passed to the spirit world when I was 21 years old and I spent the next 2 decades striving for perfection in my life for my father until I learned that there is no such thing. I learned that I was spiritually excellent just as I am and I can be happy by creating a reality with an open mind and open heart. This was the climatic synchronistic moment that defined my spiritual transformation and was the moment the universe was waiting for and delivered me my life purpose thus far. This purpose is to serve the spirit world as a medium. My father is an example of sacrificing the happiness of his life forms to learn. To this exact moment he was and is my biggest teacher here and hereafter.
Speaking about hereafter, once our soul plan is complete, our human body/soul temple passes away. Our spirit/soul transforms and transitions back to the spirit world taking with it every life moment. We are restored to our natural state of peace, love and light. In the spirit world, we’re able to view the life experiences of love, lessons, learning and laughter, all of which evolve the soul. Our soul analyzes our actions, good and bad. Karma is paid where due and another layer of wisdom is acquired. Our soul will continue to plan contracts and incarnate to live, learn, laugh and love. Paulo Coelho said “We are all travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” I say…..and it’s by no mistake. In closing, thank you for taking this little journey with me and I look forward to meeting up again.
