Can Souls Die ?

Written by Gary Wonning

Many have asked if it is possible for a soul to die. If a person leads a totally regressive life and does all sorts of unimaginable evil, does his soul die and rot in hell?

A soul is energy and energy can neither be destroyed or die.  However, when one engages in activity detrimental  to the highest good, the soul can become detached from the physical body, the lack of faith shown by the individual creates a situation where the individual becomes empty and the soul shrinks from importance and begins to lose energy.

Once a soul depletes it will have very weak energy, and not able to reach their Guide or connect with the higher state of being. It is then very hard for it to return in physical form. We might relate this to being depressed in our current reality. They would need time and contemplation to once again be ready to return to the physical form to proceed to their next earthly lessons. 

They would continuously float between the two dimensions until they once again find their way Home, often aided by other souls. In this process, they would learn there are always other souls who are more than willing to aid them in their journey back. The souls offering the assistance are also advancing their development by aiding those in distress. 

The affected souls may end up in lower dimensions of life and continue their process from these lower levels, sort of a refresher course, if you would.  Once they realize there are always guides available to assist in their progress, they will receive guidance . If they are not open, there is no guidance for them. It is one of the valuable lessons of the soul. Sometimes the hardest lesson to learn is to accept help from others. 

There are always souls who are ready and willing to help if and when we ask. But we also need to be open to them. How many times have you asked for guidance and then closed yourself to any nudging you may have gotten from those beyond?  How many times have you ignored the promptings of the soul because you were afraid, or didn’t believe, or were afraid there may be a successful outcome of your actions. 

Many times, we as humans are more afraid of success than we are of failure. When we succeed, many times more is asked of us and we are afraid of the challenge.

The Guides send messages through thoughts, dreams, and the realization of desires. The message isn’t always a loud booming voice from the heavens so often depicted in the bible.  I would venture to guess, those voices many of the prophets heard, were just subtle messages or thoughts such as we are talking about today.

The spirit guides don’t just work with one person, they are available to everyone, but we need to remain open to the possibility and not close ourselves down because we think it is too absurd to enter our vision of reality. 

Many times people refer to their good fortune as “luck”, it isn’t luck, or coincidence, there are no coincidences. It is the universe responding to our requests, and we being open to receive the message.

As I became aware of in my own personal journey, there are many truths we have yet to learn.

Living Your Dreams Instead of Your Fears

Written by Gary Wonning

Too many people today are not living their dreams because they are living their fears.

The twenty-four hour news cycle is continuously filling our living rooms with negative news stories, often times blown up out of proportion and filled with half truths. 

As a result, people are continuously living in fear of what may happen instead of accomplishing something positive in their lives. 

People are in constant fear of what may or may not happen. 

In many instances, the same kind of events we are see occurring around the world have been happening for hundreds of years.  The only difference is, we hear about them instantly instead of as in the past, when we often never were informed of them because of the distances involved.

Years ago, if we lived on the east coast of the United States, we never heard about what was going on in California, unless it was a total disaster such as an earthquake, and then it may have been days before the news reached us.

Today, the news reaches us instantly and the main stream media does it’s best to politicize it. It is to their advantage to do this because it increases their ratings and sells advertising. 

We need to start living our lives again, the politicians will fight it out and eventually devour themselves and those around them. In reality, besides writing our congressman, who may or may not even listen to us, the only way to effect change in our country is to make our voices heard at the ballot box.

We need to once in start living our dreams, in America, we are in control of our lives and our destiny, unlike most other places in the world.  

We have lost the spiritual values that were instilled in our country at the beginning. 

Study  what the founders and heroes of the American Revolution faced. many times they faced death or serious injury, but they survived and as a result, created the greatest country the world has ever know. 

Many times the only positive in their lives was their faith.

By controlling our destiny and life, we can create the kind of reality we all strive for.

By being responsible for our own life, being independent and as self sufficient as we can, not relying on government to run our life, we will create the type of country our founders had in mind.

We do create our future, and when we do, the negativity and distention in life has no one to latch onto and will disappear into the sunset.

Once we accomplish that, anything is possible. 

Let us go forth, have faith in something larger than ourselves, by accomplishing this small feat,  we can accomplish much.

What do you think?

By learning and remembering the Wisdom of Our Ancestors, we can accomplish much.

The Tree of Life

Written by Gary Wonning

What does the Tree of Life look like?

Several years ago while attending the funeral of a friends father, I began walking back to the van we all arrived in.

As I walked back to the parking lot, I sensed I had entered another time and reality. As a friend and I walked shoulder to shoulder we entered another world, It was a barren world and seemed as if it was where we came from before living on earth. 

Continuing on , we passed a scraggly old locust tree, which to me symbolized the Tree of Life.  Through the years that image has continuously returned into my thoughts.

Looking back, that image has undoubtedly lead to much of my self discovery into the spiritual world and the meaning of life.

Even though I had read the bible a couple of times, I never realized there were two trees in the Garden of Eden, the Tree of Knowledge, or good and evil, and the Tree of Life. 

Only years later when I was lead to study the Kabbalah did I come to vaguely understand what the Tree of Life was all about.

The Tree of Life explains the ten attributes of God, the foundation of all life and the principles we all need to live by. 

Many belief that when we pass from this earthly existence, we return to God and the Tree of Life.  Some have described the tree of life as being an extremely bright illuminated willow like tree with energy pulses traveling through its branches.The tree is described as being white with sparkling branches, it could be compared to a Christmas Tree. 

The tree is in an immense valley with beautiful hills and green grass.  Nearby is a waterfall and a river, and beds of beautiful flowers surround the Tree.

The Tree isn’t a tree like on earth, it is composed of light, veins of light that seem to go on forever.  The veins go on forever and are intertwined and life is streaming through them like the blood streams through our own body. Each of the millions of little lights is equivalent to a life, or soul.

We each return to the Tree of Life upon our passing from earthly existence to give our soul an opportunity to access it’s recent life, contemplate what it has learned and to decide with the guides that are there what the next best possible course of action is for our particular soul to continue it’s learning and advance to a higher state of consciousness.

The Purpose of Life on Earth

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

What is the purpose of life on Earth?

Why do we incarnate on this planet?

These are questions each and everyone of us has asked at least once during our existence on planet earth.

Why are we here?

There has to be more to it than just growing up, getting a job, growing old and dying.

What would be the purpose of it if  that was all there was to life.

It was a question I asked many years ago and it began a personal search for answers.

Through it all, I found my answers, they may not be someone else’s answers, but the search satisfied my yearnings.

There are many reasons we incarnate on earth,  and each satisfies the personal yearnings of our soul. This yearning enables us to grow and evolve into higher realms of spirituality.

We, or our soul is energy, energy that transforms into a physical body when we incarnate.

As we grow energetically, we learn to help others to enable them to also grow spiritually and reach their highest potential.

We are spiritual beings that have a physical body. The way we grow is to increase our energy, our energy nourishes itself with other energy, in other words, we energize ourselves by connecting with divine source.

How do we increase our energy? We don’t just grab it out of the air without doing anything.

We increase our energy by collecting love and positive feelings while in the physical body and by living and experiencing life.

The more we rise above the conflicts of life and succeed to gather positive thoughts in spite of the goings on around us, the more positive energy we create, we then offer these positive vibes to others thereby giving them the opportunity to become more positive in the process.

By offering our positive vibes to the universe, we are subconsciously opening new pathways to new lives and experiences for others, if they are willing to accept them.

By providing this opportunity to others, we are actually creating new lives, just as a mother gives birth to a new soul.

Many religions around the world believe as we each evolve and advance spiritually, we create new universes and live future lives on other planets, teaching others who may come the wonders of the universe and thus enabling them to learn the universal knowledge of the universe.

It is a continuous cycle, and goes a long way to explain where we  humans came from before planet earth was inhabited by the homo sapiens.

Do We Live Parallel Lives?

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

The concept of parallel lives can be very confusing.

Many of us who have been brought up in western civilization only come in contact with the concept of reincarnation later in life.

We are often taught to believe we  only live once and after passing on we reside in heaven until the resurrection when Jesus comes and saves us, then we are judged and if found worthy, reside in heaven for the rest of eternity, however long that may be.

It can take some time for many to accept the possibility that reincarnation may be possible, the opposite has been so ingrained in many it has become a permanent part of their belief system.

We are also taught that we are a body who has a soul, and we personify everyone and everything, even God, thus because we have a physical body, we can only be in one place at a time.

When we begin to realize we are a soul that occupies a body, that puts an entirely different spin on the whole scenario. As we progress in our learning, we gradually begin to realize, either through learning or personal experience that it is possible for us to be seen in two different realities simultaneously.

Many people experience seeing loved ones return and visit them after they have passed on, sometimes years later. How would this be possible if we weren’t omnipresent?

We are each and every one of us part of God, God is omnipresent, so if we are part of him we would be omnipresent also.

When one begins studying the concept of reincarnation it normally begins with an individual discovering one past life, then after some time, if the individual soul keeps doing research, he or she suddenly discovers additional past lives.

Suddenly their whole perspective changes, a whole new world opens up to them. They then try to chronologically arrange their lives, filling in the gaps into one continuous chain of lifetimes. Suddenly, a monkey wrench is thrown into the situation, they come across a time when they were living two lives simultaneously.

What a dilemma, what do we make of this?

Depending on the individual and their belief mechanism or personal experiences they have to start believing that parallel lives are a reality, once that occurs, it opens up a whole new perspective and possibilities we never even imagined.

We begin to realize we are living all our lives simultaneously, and the one we are seeing as reality is only the one we are focusing on, kind of like turning a radio, all the stations are available for us to listen to, but we only hear the one we are tuned in to.

We are all living  parallel lives and each has a bearing on the other, if we make changes in one of our lives, it changes the reality in the others.

The past and future are parallel , but in between the two, in linear time, resides the NOW, and that determines which version of the future you experience. That is why living in the NOW is so important, the decisions you make in the present could put you in a less desirable future, hence karma.

As a result, everything you do changes the reality on the earth plane, from our perspective. Hence, if you want to change the world, change yourself.

The process in unending as we continue to grow and learn of our connection with Divine Source.

How Do Twin Flames Evolve?

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Souls are often compared to a clump of grapes.

The clump of grapes is the actual soul and each individual grape is an individual representation of the whole. As the grapes choose to incarnate on earth or elsewhere, they seperate from the clump and live their individual life experience. After fulfilling their mission in physical form, they once again return to the “clump”.

After they return, the whole “clump” learns from their experience and the soul is able to evolve much quicker than if just one personification of the soul incarnated at a time. 

As a result, we can actually have more than one twin flame in the physical existence at the same time, and many times we meet on the physical plane and experience life together. We choose  which entity to join with based on our life mission, and the mission of the other soul fragment. 

We recognize the other aspect of our soul when in human form, even though in some it would be subtle and they wouldn’t recognize them as a soul mate, just someone whom they get along with quite well, and who they have much in common.

Many we meet on  a daily basis could fit that mold, but a twin flame would be more special than the others and would maintain a special place in our heart, even for many years after the meeting. 

If you should separate on the physical level, they would never leave your memory.

Often times, we choose the wrong twin and it doesn’t correspond with our mission, that is why often times, relationships don’t work out. As people used to say, we are in the right church, but the wrong pew. 

In this instance we have two choices, change partners, or change our mission, in most cases if we change our mission, we will never be happy, unless our original mission was to change our mission.

This is our decision and our decision alone, only we can know the correct path to follow, and we can only know which path to follow by letting our instincts, or gut tell us, we have to listen within, no one can tell us.

In the case of twin flames incarnating simultaneously, they each benefit, evolve, and grow from the experience, even if one aspect of the soul seems to decrease vibrationally. 

The end result will be positive and if one of them did well, it will lift up the others.

The Aboriginal Dreamtime and the Great Flood. Part Three

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

A journey into the unknown. Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Part three of a three part series

Many times, when animals are under stress, or when they hibernate, they consume little or no food, and often recycle their own waste to survive, making feeding them less of an challenge.

When the ice meteor struck the earth it unleashed a deluge causing the ice caps to begin melting, and underground explosions that released hot gases and water from under the earth’s surface.

The water vapor canopy that once covered the earth began to dissipate and caused it to rain for forty days and nights as described in the bible

Ice, at three hundred degrees below zero is magnetic, thus the colder ice was drawn to the north pole.

If the earth was nearly flat like it was then, there is enough water in our oceans to cover the earth with twelve thousand feet of water, so more than enough water would have been available to cover the earth with several feet of water.

The bible says it was a one year flood after which time the waters began to recede as the land arose up around it.

The mountains ascended and the valleys descended from the rapid flow of water from the highlands to the lowlands.

The formation of the rivers and streams created erosion that carved out the terrain, including such features such as the Grand Canyon.  

The landscape wasn’t formed in over millions of years, with the tremendous rush of water,  it only took days or weeks. The heat released from the inner earth made the rock  extremely hot and pliable, making it easy to bend and form into the various shapes of terrain seen today.

Almost all  mountain ranges follow a coastline, or close to it, the mountains rising created valleys close by that resulted in the ocean waters rushing in.

Areas like the Grand Canyon were formed by erosion in a matter of days, not thousands of years like many think.

It all came about very quickly as evidenced by animals being found in places like Russia with fresh food found in their frozen stomachs. Sea shells are found in such places as Mount Everest and Sedona, thousands of feet above sea level. This all points to the validity of this theory. How else could the artifacts have gotten there?

Iron trinkets and animal remains have been found in coal and other ancient minerals.

After the flood subsided, God promised Noah that the world would never again be destroyed by flood.  In today’s world, with the mountains and other environmental characteristics, this would be physically impossible.

After the flood man and animals began eating meat, vegetation was much less because the water vapor canopy was no longer present, man and animals no longer grew as large or lived as long as they did before the deluge.

Life had changed and humankind had evolved into a new species.
