I have spoken in past blogs about past lives and about soul energy and spirit energy and that those two things are not really the same thing, as we have been taught in Western culture. But I do not think that I have gone into much detail regarding parallel lives and how this all fits into the grand scheme of things. So I decided to at least attempt this, knowing that I may not do the subject great justice because, let’s face it, no one knows all there is about something like this, least of all myself. But I will share what I have learned along the way to help one grasp the concept.
To begin, let’s just review for a moment. We all have a soul. We also all have a spirit. Those are not the same. The spirit is an energy form that is eternally connected to the creative force, whatever one chooses to call that…God, Goddess, Great Spirit, whatever. Because it is eternally connected to this creative force, it is impervious to harm. So no one can actually “break your spirit.” That is quite a ridiculous thing to even suggest. They can, however, break your will, and that is something quite different than your spirit energy. They can also break your heart, and that, too, is different. The spirit, even though it is eternally connected to the creative force, is still expanding itself. As such, it creates soul energies in order to learn and grow through multitudes of lifetimes. The soul, in doing this job of learning etc, is evolving to become spirit energy. So it is a bit of a symbiotic relationship between the two.
The soul energy is more primal and more fragile. Thus people can experience soul loss, which is where we shamans come in because some of us are gifted with the ability to retrieve soul energies that have been lost, given away, or taken, regardless of whether or not it was intentional or accidental. Soul energy is imprinted to the physical temple of the body. Your soul energy does not belong in anyone else’s body, and neither do their soul energies belong in your body. Soul energy is a part of us that, as mentioned, learns, heals and grows, but it also is something that is in charge of keeping our physical temples (bodies) sustained. So some soul energy may be in charge of, say, keeping our parasympathetic nervous systems intact. Others may be in charge of the autonomic nervous system. Others may be in charge of our emotions, and others yet may be in charge of our intellect and so on. We each have many soul energies residing within our physical temples…an entire team if you will. And when something traumatizing happens, sometimes some soul energies get bumped out of the temple (in an accident or an attack or even during a surgery etc) or perhaps even choose to just step out for a moment because it is too painful to attend. And this is often (98% of the time) nothing to worry about because, once the event is done, they step right back in and go back to work. It is the 2% of the time when they get lost or attached to something, someone, somewhere else that is the problem and requires the attention of a shaman to help to get them back safe and sound.
Now…let’s move on to inter-dimensional time lines….If you were to envision the universe as a vast series of stacks of pancakes, each pancake would be one of many possible time lines in many stacks (dimensions). The Universe breathes, so when it inhales, those pancake stacks separate from each other a bit. When the Universe exhales, they touch each other, sometimes squishing into one another. When this happens we get what my partner and I call a “pancake moment,” which is when there is cross-over between time lines and dimensions. Each time line and each dimension is another aspect of a possible YOU. And when the cross over happens we can experience anything from Déjà Vu to seeing shadow figures flit past to having vehicles show up out of nowhere when we were paying very good attention to the road, etc.
Now, combine all this information and what we have is a ripe breeding ground for parallel lives. In a parallel life, we are not necessarily the same person, multiplied. For example, I found that, back in WWII, I was a young Jewish boy in a concentration camp. Admittedly, this is part of why I have had such an adverse response to the children in cages in the United States. As that young Jewish boy, I encountered a German guard…who was also me in a parallel existence. The guard and I were very fond of one another. He was kind even when he was doing his job. At least he was to me…right up to the time I was placed into the gas chamber. But that is not all. During that time I was also the Jewish wife of a German General, who’s heritage was kept secret during that time to protect both myself and the General. I, as that woman, never met either the guard or the little boy in the concentration camp. We were all there, in that time line, to learn things from a variety of perspectives.
When we are talking about parallel lives, we may be referring to an experience within this time/space, or within another. So there may be other lifetimes I am living in another space/time continuum, whereas there may also be another life that I am living in this space/time continuum. Sometimes, for example, we are BOTH the grandparent AND the grandchild, sometimes we are BOTH the hippie AND the corporate executive. The list goes on. And very rarely are we aware of the fact that we have a parallel life happening in this space/time continuum, because mostly that could actually hinder the learning, growth and healing that our soul energy is trying to accomplish. Some people equate this with “twin souls” or “soul mates” but that is something entirely different, so please don’t go there.
Once in awhile, one will begin to connect with one’s parallel life in this space/time continuum through the Dream Weave. The Dream Weave is something that meshes everything together throughout the multitude of Universes, dimensions and time lines. When we connect like that, we may have flashes of the other “self’s” life while daydreaming, scrying, meditating or dreaming during sleep. This does not mean that the two of you are supposed to necessarily meet one another. Perhaps you will, but that is not the purpose of the connection. The purpose of it is to bring to your consciousness the fact that there is much more to you than just this one experience of life in this one physical temple. You are part of a much grander scheme of reality. And the sooner one realizes that and puts that consciousness into play in one’s own life here and now, the smoother the transitions will be for all the parallel lives that are simultaneously being experienced, the faster that soul energy can evolve to become spirit energy.
And that is the actual reason for this blog today. It becomes, at times, necessary to stick one’s neck out for the good of the whole. I can assure you that there will be many who will criticize, condemn and complain about me writing about this and explaining it the way that I have. They have their agendas, I have mine. I want humans to evolve as quickly as possible, because if we don’t we will not survive. That evolution is something that does not just take place on a physical or mental level. It is something that also takes place on a spiritual level, therefore we have to be made conscious of that fact. Yes, any fool can criticize, condemn and complain…and they usually do. If you choose to consider this information, then I applaud you. If you choose to resist or deny it, then this is your choice in life. I cannot in any way control any of whichever way it lands upon your doorstep, or the choices that you make regarding it. This is simply information that I have on the subject matter…to date. More is yet to be discovered, because, as mentioned, I do not know all there is to know about it. I only know what information I currently have. The exploration of this, however, is yours, should you choose to do that. I hope that you will, and I hope that the discoveries you make will be expansive and enlightening for you. And if you choose to close the door and turn off the lights, I wish you well. No judgement, no fear.
