We live and die again and again,
with the same patterns which carry over,
life after life we face similar problems
because we cannot stop ourselves from indulging in doubts
Breaking free from your own negative mind,
is the biggest war we can ever win as souls alive
We all have spirit guides and angels helping us. A spirit guide is a soul who enters into contract with a spirit before it incarnates in a body. The spirit guides exist in the celestial dimensions and may alos incarnate with us on Earth. They help us pass through the tests of life .
The following is a conversation between a spirit guide and a person during a past life session of a life between life regression. The guidance given to the lead character, Dev, applies to several of us on the human plane.
This is from the book IN SEARCH OF HAPINESS, how past lives affect the present, a soul’s perspective:
Dev has a problem of a racing heart beat. There is no medical explanation to it. In a previous session, we find it comes whenever he feels he has failed in some way. It is found that Dev died trying to save a girl from his own father, who was a tyrant . The spirit dies feeling betrayed and wants to take revenge from his enemies. It refuses to go to heaven as it feels its life purpose is not over . Usually, as a therapist, my work is to convince the spirit to go to heaven so that it can start a fresh life to achaive the same purpose. If a dead spirit refuses to leave, it keeps feeling negative again and again , as it did at the moment of death.
N this way, it keeps affecting its future incarnations. Dev felt revengeful at the moment of death. He had died about two-three thoudand years back. But , his soul was frozen at that point .As we find, he lives several lives successively, feeling revengeful . He killed sevetal innocent people in his desire to kill enemies. He accumulates huge karmic debts and hence, cannot find peace and happiness. The spirit of the Greek soldier has to be healed and made positive which is possible only when he helps several thousands of people he kills in his revengeful lives, find their purpose of life again .
Section 2 - Dev’s first Life between Life session
We are continuing with the previous session.
Since it was clear that Dev’s bleeding heart would not completely heal till he helped the Greek soldier achieve his purpose of life, I next took Dev to the pre-life planning stage of his current life to help him find out about his life purpose more specifically.
As I decided that I had to take him on the spur of the moment in the middle of this session I had no time to educate him about what to expect there.
He knew the concept of a life-plan but he had no idea about the Council or the work it does. I had not ever before mentioned it as I did not think it was needed. I did not expect that he would meet the Council members.
I first planned to ask him to go to the Hall of Doorways and then I planned to guide him to enter the Life-between-Life space from a door which opened there from the Hall of Doorways.
Thus, I said to Dev, in continuation of the session -
“Ok, then, we will go to the Life-between-Life space to find out how your purpose of life can be achieved. Go to the Hall of Doorways. You will see yourself in a hall with a number of doors. When you see yourself there, say “yes”.
“Yes”, he replied.
“Ok, how many doors do you see there? Give me the first impression you get.”
“Twelve”, he replied.
“Ok, now go to a door which opens to the pre-life planning stage of your current life. When you see yourself outside a particular door, say yes.”
“Yes”, he replied.
“How does the door look like?” I asked him details so that he would get more intensely involved in the experience.
“Regular”, he shrugged.
“What is it made of?”
“Wood”, he said.
“Ok, now as I count 5 to 1, open the door and be in the pre-life planning stage of your current life - 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. NOW! Be there”.
“Yes”, he replied.
“Close the door behind you. What do you see?”
In the pre-life planning stage, at this point, people usually say they see themselves in clouds, in a beautiful garden or in nothingness. They feel light and relaxed.
The expression on their face soothes down as they imbibe the beauty of the place. It usually feels fresh and nice.
They sometimes also find their spirit friends around them who are guiding them in their present life.
These spirit friends are there when this person is making his/her life-plan as a soul. They have complete details of the life-plan. Usually, the spirits answer all the questions asked. If they are not seen, they can be called to ask for guidance.
Nobody, I knew had seen themselves in front of the Council. The Council is a high authority body. One has to ask specifically to be taken there, if needed. Since I had no plans to take Dev to the Council, as usual, I expected Dev’s guides to answer our questions.
“I see some people sitting around a table”, Dev replied.
I was surprised. Dev seemed to have reached the Council straight.
However, I wasn’t sure this was the Council yet. Dev had no idea that something like the Council existed. How could he reach there when I had not even instructed him to?
“How many are there? How do they look?”
“…Twelve”, he paused for lesser than a second and replied. He could not have known there are twelve members in the Council because I had never told him so. Nor was he the kind who read books on Spirituality.
“They look old”, he continued. That confirmed that this was the Council.
.“One old man is talking to me”, Dev continued further.
I was again surprised... I had not yet directed him to ask questions. It seemed they were waiting for him in the Council.
“What is he saying?”
“Ma-gsi-mus”, Dev replied “I can’t follow clearly. He is Greek. He is speaking with a strong accent”.
“What is that?”
“It is a name…He is calling me that.” he replied.
“Why is he calling you that?”
“It seems to be my name”; he paused and said “Maybe that was the name of the Greek soldier”.
“Okay. Is it Maximus?”
“Something like that…” he concentrated and replied.
“Focus”, I touched him on the third eye so that he could get his name clearly.
“The g and s are together. It is not separate…I can’t pronounce it…It’s in their language…it is spoken differently....” Dev shrugged his shoulders.
“Ok, shall we let it be Maximus?”
“Yes...” he nodded.
“What does the Old Man look like? Focus!”
“He’s like them….” Dev replied.
“The Greek soldier. He is talking his language. He is very fair, almost white. Old, tall, skinny….. He is bald with long hair at the back. …He is wearing a long white robe, talks with an accent”, Dev replied in pauses.
“Okay. What is he saying? Focus!”
“The purpose of this life is victory”, Dev replied in a heavier voice as if someone else was speaking through him “Maximus, you have to heal several people with whom you did injustice because your heart was full of revenge”, Dev was addressing himself as YOU meaning the Old Man was speaking through him.”Your suffering of the life of the Greek soldier continues because of the injustice you did in earlier lives”, he continued.
“What does he mean by injustice? Ask?”
“If a person dies a planned death, it is not injustice but if it is forced before exit time, then it is injustice” Dev replied on behalf of the Old Man.
(Dev himself had no idea that death, accidents and illnesses are planned, Or that there is a time for death. I had not discussed the concept of the life-plan with him in detail yet. Moreover, when I did discuss it with him later, when he was in a fully conscious state, he was not completely convinced by the concept.)
“Does that mean that you forced people to die before their planned time?”
“Yes. After the life of Maximus, you lived several lives where you killed other souls .You were given several chances to heal those souls but each time, you ruined your chances. Earlier you killed because your heart was full of revenge. Later you killed for pleasure.”, Dev continued. His voice was heavier than usual and had a slower pitch.
“Ok, ask, how can you heal the souls you have already killed in earlier lives now?”
“You have to give back the purpose of life to those souls whom you took it away from”, Dev continued to speak in a heavy voice.
“How can you do that?”
“Doing what you are good at. You have to heal or destroy other people who are doing substance to harm their own souls.” Dev answered.
“What does that mean?”
“There are people using violence like you did in earlier lives. They are doing injustice to other souls while their own souls are suffering. You have to get victory over those souls. You have to fight for the truth. When you heal those souls, your own soul would be healed”, he continued.
“How can you fight for the truth? Ask? By what means?”
“You have been given the means. You have to do what you are good at”, he replied on behalf of the Old man.
“What are you good at? Ask?”
“Fighting”, Dev replied.
“Fighting how, by what means. Ask?”
“By means where the intention is to fight for the truth and not destruction. You have got this chance after several lives to make up for all the lives where you were full of revenge and did injustice”, continued the Old man through Dev. “After this chance, you won’t get another chance for several life-times. Whatever you do in this life will come back to you in this life itself”, Dev spoke.
“Does that mean that if you use violence for destruction it will come back to you in this life itself?”
“Yes, it does”, Dev said heavily. Since his conscious mind was obsessed with using violence for destruction, it was a shock for him to hear the opposite from his subconscious. His conscious mind took a much longer time to accept these words of wisdom or incorporate them as a way of life.
“So, ask him what can you do to be on the right track?”
“You will be given continuous guidance”, Dev replied for the Old Man “You will be given messages. You were given guidance in earlier lives also but you did not heed those messages”, he continued.
“So, what can you do now to ensure you would heed those messages? Ask?”
“Listen. The message is given to you before the anger comes… You have to listen to the voice in your head before the feeling of rage consumes you”, said the Old Man.
“What can you do to train your mind to listen? Ask?”
“You need to be calm first thing in the morning.” said the Old Man
“How can you do that? Ask. Can they be more specific like will doing meditation help?”
“Exercise and meditation. When you are calm, you will hear what your heart speaks”, Dev said.
(Dev used to do yoga exercise in the mornings which included a bit of meditation also. Yoga used to effectively calm him down but he wasn’t a regular. Often, he used to skip to body building exercises like dumbbells, which somehow fuelled his needs for indulging in violence. The Old Man was suggesting Yoga exercise since he mentioned meditation with exercise, but he could not be more specific. The exact choice of the path was Dev’s own. The Old Man was only giving information from the feeling perspective, i.e. from the perspective of the feeling which each action created, as coded in his life plan.)
“What else can you do? Ask?”
“You have to forgive some people, Maximus”, said the Old Man.
“Can he be more specific, please? Ask?”
“You have to forgive your father and your sister. You have to forgive all the people you did injustice to and who killed you in successive lives”, said the Old man.
(The Old Man was probably referring to the life where Dev as the tribal Roman soldier had killed his own king for money. In his next life as the Greek soldier, Maximus, the same king was his father who had got him killed.)
“Okay and what about the woman you loved in that life. Is she there in your present life also? Ask.”
“She is there. She has been there all along.” replied the Old Man.
“How will you recognize her? Ask if he can give a clue?”
“You will recognize her when you see her. But she is not the purpose of this life. She is waiting for you to heal. The love was pure. Because of that love, you have been given another chance”, said the Old Man.
Dev looked relieved to hear that. For him, that was something to look forward to. Otherwise, he was being asked to leave the path of violence and destruction when these were the only things he found thrilling in his life.
“What is your purpose of this life? Ask?”
“The purpose is to heal your heart by healing the people whose purpose of life you took away in earlier lives”, said the Old Man.
“Which path do you have to follow to achieve this purpose? Ask?”
“You are a soldier. You have to be a soldier. You can follow your own path or you can follow the path of Maximus”, replied the Old Man.
“What does that mean? Can he be more specific? Ask?”
“You are our soldier of justice. The path is not important. How it is followed is important. You have got carried away in earlier life-times. You were a soldier in the army. You were sent to prevent them but you joined with them.” said Dev on behalf of the Old Man.
“Yes…So, which path can you follow? Is the police better or the army or is there any other path?”
“It is your choice. You can follow the path of Maximus or follow the path where killing is the last resort.” the Old Man repeated “You started killing to obey orders and later you killed anyone who came in front of you. You took several innocent lives. You have to heal those souls. That is your purpose. What you do to achieve that purpose does not matter. The intention behind it matters.”
That was as specific as they could get. At the level of feelings, the army or the police did not matter .The important message was that Dev was being asked to change his whole pattern of thinking. He had to forgive his parents and not get carried away into a life of crime, which he often mused upon.
“Is there anyone on Earth who can guide you? Ask?”
“The girl… She knows the path. She is the only one who knows.” said the Old Man.
“When will you find her? Ask”
“You will find her when the time comes. You will get one chance to be with her. If you don’t take it, she will go again”, said the Old Man. After that, there was a long pause in which Dev was quiet.
“Okay. Is there anything else he is saying?”
“No”, Dev replied, now, in his own voice.
“Is there anything the other council members are saying?”
“No”, Dev paused and denied. Only one Old Man from the Council had spoken to him. Maybe he was his guide in charge.
“Anything else you need to ask about your purpose of life?”
“No”, he said affirmatively, indicating he had got enough information.
“Okay, then thank the Council members and the Old Man and come back to the Hall of Doorways.”
“Yes, I am there”, he replied when he was out.
“Now, Go out of the Hall of doorways”.
“Yes... The Greek soldier is there.” he said suddenly.
“What is he saying?”
“You have to finish my purpose of life. When you do that, only then my heart will be healed.” Dev spoke on behalf of Maximus, the Greek soldier.
“How does his heart look now?”
“It is half healed now. .. He is saying something more”.
“The path you follow has to be righteous”, Dev continued in the Greek soldier’s authoritative voice.
“Is he giving any guidance on which path to follow? Ask?”
“The path will be shown to you when the time is right. You have to follow your heart. Do what feels right in your heart”, Dev continued.
“When will the right time come? Ask?”
“Two years from now. You will take two years to find the right path.”, replied the Greek soldier.
“Okay... Is there anything else he wants to say?”
“No”, replied Dev in his own voice.
“Okay, then ask him to go back to heaven. See him going in the light.”
“Yes... He is gone now.”
“Okay, then I’ll count you up …1, 2… 20. Let all this be integrated in your mind when you sleep tonight. Feel light, refreshed and relaxed as you get up… 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 – Eyes Open, wide awake.”
Dev took some time to get up since he had been a deep trance state.
We discussed the messages he had got when he got up.
Section 3 - Conclusion of the session
Dev was virtually suggested a whole shift in his thinking patterns, which also included forgiving people he held deep grudges against. He wasn’t convinced by that argument as he still felt deeply betrayed by them. But it was a new perspective opening up to him.
He agreed that forgiveness and discretion about which cause is just and which is unjust were two main lessons he had to learn in this life to get the peace he desired.
