Where do all the souls come from?

QUESTION: Masters where do all of the spirits/souls come from (origination)? There are old souls and others, but where do the souls continue to root from. We are already a spirit before we are born to earth and enter a human body, but the population grows. Where do the spirits/grow from? ~Avital, USA

ANSWER: All souls are pieces broken off from Source energy. Just under seven billion souls are incarnate on your Planet Earth at this time. We have visited this question in the past in our writing of the book Exploring Reincarnation. The question (found on page 203) was: “How many souls are there currently in existence? Is the creation of new souls ongoing or has it already met a target number?

Our answer now, as it was then, is: “Using your numbering system there are approaching a trillion souls in existence. Take your known Earth population, consider there are hundreds of other places souls can inhabit, understand souls come and go daily (birth and death), some souls are in places where they have the option of popping in and out of bodies as they experience different activities, and the answer is that the number changes constantly. (The number that are on Earth at any one time, not the total number of individual souls.)

The creation of individual souls has no specific target number. All the fragments that are needed to sustain the current learning processes exist now. Will more be needed in the future? There are too many variables to say with absolute certainty, but we do not anticipate the creation of any additional souls.”

As you can see from these figures 9,993 billion souls are not engaged in life on the planet. Also considering souls repeatedly choose to return to Earth to try new life lessons it seems unlikely the variables will present themselves such that Source will have to make further divisions of itself.
