Lately, we’ve really been getting a push to shed the old and embrace the new. This has been part of a larger progression that began in the early summer, and it’s involved a lot of intense shifts on the energetic, emotional, and collective levels.
I observe these changes in the ambient energy through my sessions with clients, and also in how I experience the energy of each day. It becomes clear at times that there is a certain theme coming up in all of my sessions. Over the period of these last few months that theme has been the release of old ways of being - or as I’ve said many times, the shedding of old layers of the self. These ways of being are connected to old patterning that resulted from past traumas (both big and small), and beliefs that we may have acquired along the way.
Some of these patterns are quite old, going back to childhood, and as I’ve found in the last few days, some can even stretch back through lifetimes!
Those of you on my email list have heard me talk about this quite a bit (sign up for my email list here if you’d like to be kept abreast of the energetic changes we are experiencing collectively), while reassuring you that this process is pushing us towards new ways of being in life that are liberating, and that offer us the rare opportunity to easily step out of our old patterns and into newer, lighter states of being. Make no mistake, these are not small shifts. Though they may seem subtle at first, these are quantum leaps forward in personal evolution.
As previously pushed-down patterns are brought to the surface, you might find things coming up for you that seemed like they had already been worked through - and that’s totally normal. It doesn’t mean that you’ll never really resolve your issues (I can hear the groans already), in fact, it could be just the opposite - this may be the final release that you’ve been waiting for, or that you didn’t know you needed, in order to truly move into a higher state and fuller expression of you.
So let’s celebrate this opportunity and take full advantage of it while it’s here! We don’t get this kind of quantum push forward all the time, it really is something special. I encourage everyone reading this to take stock of what’s been coming up for you in your life over the last few months, and what new 'ahas' and insights may be coming up.
You may find yourself realizing that you don’t need to continue in a relationship in the same way, and that a small tweak in how you approach it opens up new possibilities. Or that you don’t need to continue to work in the same way, perhaps you realize you can work smarter not harder and take some of the extra strain off while also creating more time for yourself. Or, that you no longer need to be the last holdout on the planet not to buy a smartphone, and you can allow yourself to move into the world of technology.
These are some of the examples I’ve seen come up, and there are endless potential manifestations in each person’s life. In each case the 'aha' moment was followed by swift and easy action that resulted in a sense of freedom from old patterns that had felt restrictive and even life-sucking.
Now, going back to what I mentioned earlier about patterns stretching back through lifetimes, I want to share the last turn in these processes of releasing - a shift into soul-level healings.
Over the last three days I’ve worked with a number of clients whose healing processes have turned a corner, having gotten to the deepest layers, and the pieces that are often not apparent or easily accessed, and that can take years to reach. These are the soul-level reasons for the patterns that are at play. Reasons like soul contracts, karmic processes, and soul-level learning and evolution. These pieces make themselves known when a process is near or at completion, and usually not before then.
I’ve often talked about sharing soul-healing stories and many of you have requested more of these. Here are a few short stories taken from sessions over the last few days, but without the depth of information that would reveal personal details. These are intended to give you a general overview of the types of things that can come up on a soul-level.
I had two clients in the last few days who released soul-contracts connected to people in their lives. Soul contracts are agreements between souls to work together in some way during a lifetime or a series of lifetimes as lessons are being learned or some other soul-development is achieved.
In all of my experiences up until this week I had found these to be situations where two souls were experiencing and re-experiencing a certain emotional relationship through various manifestations in order to learn and evolve. For example, two people who are mother and daughter in one lifetime may reincarnate as lovers or as business partners. There are infinite ways that this can play out, but in any of these scenarios they would be in a similar emotional relationship.
This week I was introduced to a different kind of soul-contract - one that I would describe as a "twin flame" or "soul mate" situation. One that would be considered quite special if not for the emotional devastation that was created this time around.
The first client recently lost a relative who had long influenced her life and emotions, and the contract was with this person. This one was a more typical situation - the relationship had been strained for years and her comments in relation to the deceased before the session began were to the effect of "I’m just so tired of being hurt and angry, I can’t do it anymore." From what evolved in the session it would appear that this shift in her emotional response to the relationship, and probably other similar shifts that had developed over years, were the final pieces needed to release a pattern with this person that had played out in five different lifetimes!
Twin Flame Devastation
Now, I’m not one to spend a lot of time talking about twin flames. I find this theme to be way over-played in our popular culture, with a need to attribute any strong emotional attachments to some kind of mystical context. But, if ever I’ve encountered a twin flame story, this is it.
This client had made an agreement with another soul to experience life together, as if they were one person, and believe it or not, they have accomplished this in five different lifetimes. Judging from her visions of her past lives and the insights that came up during the session, it would seem that this plan had worked quite well in the other lifetimes, creating feelings of love, happiness and soul-mate connection. These were lives tinged with a rosy glow.
However, in this lifetime, though they did find each (so miraculous!), they weren’t able to be together. The separation and ensuing devastation was so intense that it created a pattern of deep depression and even suicidal tendencies. The image I received of the separation was of an empty void in her body, as if she no longer existed. She told me afterwards that she had spent her entire life "looking for that one person" without fully realizing it had been him. She was programmed before birth to seek him out, like two magnets pulling towards each other. It was both beautiful and tragic.
Her spirit had made the decision to release this contract in order for her to release the debilitating emotional patterning that had plagued her for decades.
This next case is an example of a simple evolution of the soul as it learns the lessons of various lifetimes. In the session with this client it was clear that a soul-level piece was coming to completion, and I was being shown a pattern of her energy pulling in around her, almost like wrapping herself in a tight blanket. This was an emotional response that she had developed and expressed in three separate lifetimes that could be considered a coping mechanism she used to disengage from emotionally overwhelming situations.
The pattern was ready to be released. At the end of the session we connected information about when this had been triggered in this lifetime with the associated events and people. The emotional pattern is one that she is aware of and that has continued to present itself. The release of the energetic pattern should open her to a completely different way of dealing with the people in question and ultimately free her from the self-imposed disengagement that kept her from evolving through the situation.
The Dreaded Influence of Karma
Karma, the oft-cited scapegoat for all things that don’t go our way, is actually a real thing. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you did something wrong or bad in a past life and are being punished, but it is the playing out of tit for tat or reverse lessons.
In this case, my client had presented as a victim in multiple lifetimes, and this time around she was reliving that same scenario. However, it was not a situation of having been the perpetrator in other lifetimes and living out the karmic reversal of fortunes, instead this was the expression of victimhood as a means of control over people and situations.
The lessons to be learned were about control over others and had been experienced in different forms throughout lifetimes. Now the lesson was complete and the pattern was ready to release. We can only imagine how this might change her life going forward.
In cases of a soul-level issues, it’s as if the person is imprinted with a predisposition towards certain people and situations that will bring resolution to the growth that is desired on the soul-level. Imagine what that means - some issues that may be hanging around, particularly the ones that you’ve worked on for years but still persist, may actually have such deep roots that you won’t release them and the associated emotions and interpersonal connections until the lessons have been learned and the spirit chooses to release the programming.
But don’t despair, this doesn’t mean that you can’t make lots of changes and achieve new levels of awareness and healing through the experiences of a lifetime, which is ultimately what we’ve come to do.
Those are just a few of the amazing soul-healing stories I have recorded over the years. I suspect there will be more to come in the next few days, and perhaps even longer, as we continue through this period of intense quantum movement forward.
Is there anything you can do to release the soul-level connections and programs in your own life?
Well, yes. You can set the intention to release soul-level programs that have completed. That said, you may not feel anything right away and it could take some time for the issues to unwind, and for you to fully integrate the changes. You also may not ever be fully aware of which situations were soul-level issues. But, that’s ok as long as you’ve absorbed what you needed from them.
In any case you can take some time to reflect over the next couple of weeks on the changes you may be feeling in your own life… it may feel like an undercurrent, or you may be fully in the throes of something obvious, either way be sure to stay open to the new possibilities that you are moving towards and embrace them when they show up!
