Within the many diverse realms, or states of creation, for that is what they are, you have infinite opportunities of study. Each realm, or each state of thought alignment, has within it its own unique potentials for Self-creation and manifestation. Meaning, each plane of consciousness hold different possibilities for you to express, create and fulfill yourself. As you gain access to higher states of consciousness you also gain access to a broader range of possibilities for you to express, create and fulfill your identity within that. These different planes or states are not separated by any sort of wall or physical barriers, but it is more so that you gain entry into them by reconfiguring your energy resonance to ‘fade’ into new dimensions of light. In this understanding, there is no such physical ‘higher’ place, but a more refined state of reality which you enter into, which aligns itself with specific archetypes of consciousness. Understood another way, when you align your thoughts, emotions, desires – all of that which is your soul, to the purer state of the spirit, then your spirit reveals a progressively expanding reality upon you. The more and more your soul is illuminated by your ancient spirit, and less of animalistic and dualistic natures, the higher you ascend within the spectrum of possibilities.
Study then, is often those things which souls seek to pursue within the spirit world, in order to align themselves with their ancient spirit, the wisdom and potential it provides, and the great access it enables when connection is made. This is not the only reason souls pursue study however. In fact not all souls have the desire to ‘ascend’ further into alignment with their pure untainted spirit. They are more than profoundly fulfilled, joy-full and engaged within where they currently are and with what they currently do. This is perfectly fine, for there is never any pressure or expectation to do otherwise. Souls then, in this case, may desire to remain centralised within a specific dimension and do a specific type of work there. They may aspire to take on a particular role for themselves within the identity they have created for themselves. They may simply wish to explore the vast expanse of the universe(s) and dimensions available and allow their spirit to be drawn to a particular potential. When this occurs they then may choose to have a physical life experience in association with one of these potentials. Not because they have to for some ‘ascension’ process or some karmic debt, but because their spirit is drawn to the resonance of the experiences that the physical life promises to provide. Different physical experiences provide the soul with different types of energy-realizations, energy sensations and creative-energy potentials. Much the same as you would aspire to try different types of food flavours and aromas, or try to cook new recipes.
Many souls will study for a life they are about to lead in physical form. This is not to say everything is planned beforehand. Actually, very little at all is planned out prior to a physical life. What tends to be studied beforehand are certain skills, energy potentials that the soul aspires to take with them and work on. It may be that, within your soul group, you are doing a lot of work in one specific area which has long term benefits for many thousands, or millions of individuals. Your soul may wish to further this work within a physical life and so will bring with them very specific abilities and traits that empower them to do this work. Not all souls actually come to Earth with a set purpose or goal in mind, and they simply come because they would merely like to try it out. Same as you perhaps would watch someone else do a bungee jump, and then later pluck the courage to try it yourself for the thrill of it. This perhaps is why many human beings become home sick or feel lost or without purpose or direction. They made a rather hasty choice to have a human life experience without really thinking about what they wanted from it.
Similarly said, those who come to Earth with a very specific aspiration in mind, will either have a profound sense of drive and purpose, or they may actually forget why they came and become depressed. They will feel depression for they know at some level they are meant to be doing something, yet they cannot quite remember what it was. They will often then live their life with this sense of ‘something is about to happen’, yet nothing ever does, for they do not manifest their intuitive heart. What is actually happening is they are beginning to reconnect with their spirit through their heart, yet they look outside of themselves for something to manifest, instead of manifesting their own aspirations.
I myself have engaged in classes, so to speak, to enable me to have close encounters with other intelligent life within other dimensions, both of the etheric and physical realms. I have had to learn their language resonance and their codes of ethics and morality in order to assist them in reaching their own aspirations within their own cultures. I have had to undertake ‘learnings’ to translate language and information from one species from one dimension, to languages of other species in a totally different dimension. Similarly, as you develop an ability to shift in and out of different planes of consciousness, from those of significantly evolved and enlightened beings, to those of dense and desolate thought and morality, you may find communication, and information translation, is processed in a completely different manner.
If you are an inept communicator whilst in physical life, or have no affiliation with the spirit world, then you are ultimately going to carry this consciousness with you. It will not of course be a lasting state, but it will be your immediate state upon passing over. Similarly, if you are a proficient communicator, and have experience inter-weaving your energy between the physical world and the spirit world, then you are ultimately going to take this knowledge and experience with you. The more you align yourself with your ancient spirit, the stronger a connection you are going to create between this world and the next. This will benefit you later on, in the afterlife, when you are utilizing energy from physical people and physical environments, as well as your soul/spirit energy, to communicate with ‘the living’.
It is the emotional attachments, or rather ‘attunements’ which create energy connections with those in living state and extend to those in spiritual state. If you tune yourself into a specific human being, or animal, whatever you like, this attunement will be carried forth beyond physical death.
We may disentangle you from this idea that your soul ‘needs’ to gain experience on Earth. Despite the appeal of such new age belief systems they still resonate to an old energy mentality and thought process. This is from my point of view understandable because you are approaching the question and the concept from within human being, from within the human linear physical perspective, rather than a place of infinite love and life of the spirit.
The majority of that which spirit is does not ever have a physical life experience in the physical realm. The reason for this is it simply is not necessary in order for consciousness, for thought and individual identity to develop, learn and grow. The halls of learning which eternalize every aspect of the entire universe actually act as a learning domain which in itself develops, learns and grows within itself. This is to say, the halls of learning which continuously expand within the spirit world are alive, conscious and consistently growing all of the time – filling with knowledge, experience and revelation. This resource enables all spirit to access all manner of experiences recorded from the physical realm. It is then for you to understand that no spirit ever needs to come to the physical realm in order to experience what it is like, for everything that has ever been created in the universe exists in the spirit world and never, ever, disappears or dies. There is similarly this new age belief system based on religious conceptualization that in order for your soul to grow it must continue to reincarnate on the same planetary body and endure thousands of physical lives in order to ‘learn all there is to know’ or iron out some notion of karmic debt. This is a man-made myth and does not reflect any knowledge of the spirit world or what is possible to achieve there.
Why does your soul CHOOSE to gain experience on Earth?
The nature of spirit and of the soul is that it becomes gravitated towards something through attraction and inquiry. It is important for you to understand that your spirit, your soul, does not in any way fear anything whatsoever. This is to say, your soul exists within your own core vibrational soul group within a state of endless bliss, peace and saturated unconditional love. In this state your soul does not experience any of the fears or trepidations about physical state that you do right now. It does not know fear, it does not know suffering – how can it? It exists in never ending bliss all of the time – in a state and place which has no time.
I often hear the question, why would any wise soul choose to come to Earth to suffer? My point is, that which you are in eternal spirit and bliss has no fear of these mundane transient matters which you, as a human being, get so caught up and traumatised by. Your spirit and your soul only perceive potential and opportunity to experience its Self through a different form, structure and expression. You choose to come to Earth to experience, first hand, what it is like to be a human being. In this there is great compassion learned through the values you encounter through personal relationships with your external world. This journey includes all of the joys and all of the sorrows, for within this duality lies great discovery of character and the expressive craft of free will and choice. It is not the events in life which define who you are; it is who you choose to be through such events which defines what the meaning of life is to you.
