Welcome, fellow souls! During this past weekend (on your planet’s timeline), we were very enthusiastically received, and were pleased to meet a lot of you personally at the Body, Mind & Spirit Expo in Chicago. It was our pleasure to be able to answer individual questions and give personal advice to almost one hundred people through our channel Toni.
We wish now to address a frequently asked question: “How do I know that what I am doing in this life is what I am supposed to be doing?”
As human beings it is very common for you to need validation of your actions and decisions. As you entered life upon the Earth plane, you began each new chapter by deciding in advance the specific lessons you wished to make a part of your soul’s wisdom. You planned the particulars of some of the lessons, though with others you just had a general idea of what you sought to accomplish. Once you entered the physical structure of the body you inhabit, however, you always did so with no memory of any of these prior decisions.
Initially, your physical body is helped by being raised within an array of belief systems contributed by parents, teachers, society, and religions. The purpose of these belief systems is to define for you how other people feel you should behave and what they feel you should believe.
A parallel illustration of this idea is the operating system running the program on which this message has been recorded. A programmer wrote the program to do a multitude of tasks and to prevent certain functions from occurring. If you do not assess the correctness for you of these functions, you blindly adhere to the programming without question, and may well discover that you are unable to carry out certain of the plans you formulated. It is the same in your physical life. By failing to question why you cannot do what you have envisioned, you are giving away to other people your power to determine your direction in life.
In your daily life, if you merely intellectualize the decisions and directions you take—using only your brain—you will accept the beliefs and directions imbedded in you by others. All the information within your brain comes from outside of your self. It is implanted within you by the words of others, either told to you orally or read by you visually. You are completely cut out of the decision process as you follow along like a little lemming.
The belief systems that have been your guide for a large portion of your life are not permanent and immovable. You may remove them from impacting your thinking by taking each statement in turn and “feeling” if it represents the right path for you to venture down. If you believe, say, an implant that Mrs. Smith put into your head in third grade that you are “stupid,” then identify with it and let it direct your life! But if, instead, you know that you are not stupid (because of everything you have been able to accomplish successfully within your life), then erase all trace of that negative energy from your memory and rewrite your mental program to say that you are a brilliant physicist (or whatever else you may have become).
There is another aspect of this physical experience which most people ignore. You are aware of feelings or intuition coming from the knowledge and wisdom of your soul. If, whenever you have an important decision to make, you say, “What do I think?” you give the power to others. But if, instead, you say, “What do I feel?” you are searching inside for your own inner knowledge and wisdom, and you are taking responsibility for your own decisions. This is the only way that you can truly learn your lessons. It’s the same if you always only watch sports on television and never participate in them yourself—you will never have the experience of the exertion and the elation of that accomplishment.
To respond to that question we began with, “How do I know that what I am doing in this life is what I am supposed to be doing?” we have two questions for you: “Are you listening to your intuition and feeling what you want to do?” and “Do you feel that what you are doing is what you should be doing?”
These are really just rhetorical questions because now we have a statement of universal wisdom to give you. It is: “Your soul ensures that you always do exactly the right thing at the right time to gain the experience that you sought to have.”
Take the time to laugh at yourself for all the choices you can’t now remember making—while you enjoy this wonderful journey of unique experiences.
Have a fantastic week filled with love, light, and laughter. We love you dearly.
