Our Future Lives

We cannot comprehend a life after the one we are living now, therefore to understand the implications of how we are leading our current life and the importance of our lifestyle choices is a difficult task, but one which must be taken seriously if we intend to become an embodiment of Spirit and return to the light in our purest form, or to continue in the cycle of rebirth and death. This may take several, or indeed hundreds of lifetimes to achieve as this cycle is not limitless but is dependent upon our activities regarding all aspects of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves, and as a collective will determine our future life. Within this collective there are many issues to be resolved, rather like strands that are required to be pulled together and neatly tied off in a woven cloth.

Our physical form here is cumbersome but essential for survival due to the Earth’s atmosphere. As individuals we are multidimensional energy systems designed to function in other realms and dimensions, for this is essential if we are to carry out our agreed work at soul level. Until we complete this work we will continue to die and to be reborn.

Our purpose here, and the motive behind us fulfilling our soul’s work has been interrupted by many distractions which are all designed to distort our view of the bigger picture of what our life on Earth should be about. In the confusion we are prevented from realising what it is we have to achieve during this lifetime. Our outcomes have been governed by our ego which is fuelled by society’s expectations of us, and centres mainly on commercialism, pulling us deep into the void of the materialistic world where possessions and status have been developed for the framework of our existence here. We feel trapped and stifled by organisations, corporations and governments who seem able to control our emotions and subsequently our lives, by locking us into a system of fear, with the emphasis on money and wealth being central to it all. As a result, any joy and happiness we feel is sucked out of us and replaced with despair and unhappiness which causes negative energies to build up in our body, creating detrimental effects on our body as a whole. At the same time, we cannot live our lives recklessly, abuse our bodies or ignore our spiritual health too and expect that in our next life we will be exempt from problems. Bear in mind we create our own reality so it stands to reason that we must also be aware at all times of our words, actions and deeds and the effects they have on ourselves and others, and the planet as a whole, if we are to achieve a state of being which allows us to ascend; to become beings of Light as intended.

We have lost our way and overlooked the responsibility we have to ourselves in the process of being conditioned to comply with societal requirements. We expect to be bailed out by a higher power during our moments of helplessness when the going gets tough but yet, we often lack gratitude when our lives run smoothly. However, throughout our life we are given opportunities to connect to a higher power on a permanent basis and transcend our consciousness to another level.  Our chances to do so are often presented in the form of a spiritual awakening. It is during this process that we reconnect to our soul and discover our own unique reasons as to why we are here. As we continue to transcend in this life throughout our spiritual journey, we become more aware of our responsibilities as our ego falls away. It is this awareness which dictates the speed of our ascension and ultimately, where, how, and when we will take our next position in the rebirth and death cycle but by taking responsibility for ourselves – physical, emotional, and spiritual – and through maintaining our well-being on all levels in a holistic fashion, we can assist in this decision and thereby plan our future life.

Live this life responding to the awareness that our future lives are determined by the consequences of our past lives.

Introduction by Joanne Rivers

Welcome 

I hope by sharing my own unique experiences and original inspirational teachings offered by guides, angels, archangels, higher beings and also those in the elemental realms, you will be encouraged to tread your own path towards Light and love to ultimately achieve enlightenment. My journey to this point has been extraordinary and it still continues as each day I learn more about the natural order of life on Earth, and of creation, and how everything is intended to be. At this time now it is vital we awaken to our spiritual self and accept with gratitude the information we receive. By doing so we can all help restore the Earth to a natural balance and one which it was intended for – to be a place of learning and healing as we travel from one incarnation to the next so we can take with us the vast and wonderful information we have gathered on the way.

There have been many times when I’ve tried to seek the views of someone else making the same journey to reassure me that everything I experienced along the way was normal. While I received guidance from the higher realms (Guides, Angels), I also felt I needed the perspective from a being in the physical realm which seemed incredibly hard to find. The odd one or two people I did meet were willing to talk about it to a point but were reluctant to share their deeper intuitions and inspirations with me. I read a tremendous amount on the subject, but the definition of a spiritual awakening and enlightenment including what one should experience seemed to differ depending on the author. Of course, now I have undertaken the process myself I can appreciate that everyone’s experiences differ.

Looking back, I had been given many prompts over the years to awaken but did not notice them. It wasn’t until I was in the middle of a long period of illness that I experienced the awakening which led me to the point I am now. It was during this time I began to read about enlightenment and spirituality, to look for answers more than anything. I wanted to know why me? It was an incredibly dark time in my life and I never imagined I’d move into the Light. In a moment of absolute despair, at the point where I felt I could not continue, I asked for help, not from anyone in particular, but I realise now the request went out into the universe, carried by my spirit guide who I was yet to meet. I soon received inspiration and felt prompted to find a Reiki practitioner. I really knew nothing about Reiki until I’d gleaned information off the internet before booking the session. Over a period of several months which entailed regular Reiki treatments, my health improved and eventually I decided to become a practitioner myself. Initially becoming attuned to level 1, and after a year or so, attuned to level 2. I am in no doubt that the energy of  Reiki cured me, and it is definite that Reiki was also the method responsible for my own enlightenment.

There are many of us awakening at this time and indeed the path is well lit. I will leave you with this thought to ponder on from Buddha ‘You cannot travel the path until you have become the path yourself.’
