When Does A Soul Enter A Body?

Written by Gary Wonning

Since time immemorial, but especially since the abortion issue arose in the 1970s, the question has always been, when does the soul enter the body?

If you ask twenty people, you will get twenty different answers. Often times the answers are based on their political views, or someone’s rights.

All the great sages and mystics agree, the soul enters the human body at the moment of conception. As soon as the sperm meets the ovule, conception occurs. If and when you would stop and think about it, that is just common sense. Conception is the spark that lights the match. Everything that comes after that is a result of the initial act.

Without the soul the body could not function, or develop the thought process necessary to maintain a life. Without a soul, a human body is a unthinking lifeless form.

Most women instinctively know when they become pregnant, if there was no soul to communicate with, she would not know.

The soul does have a period of about seven weeks to decide if it wants to remain in the embryo or move on to a different reality, during that time, it is weighing all the options, and communicating with the parents so that all are on the same page, and each one has it’s consent taken into consideration.

If it decides to stay, then the process of transitioning from the ethereal world to the physical world begins, at that point in time the process is complete and the soul begins assimilating to it’s new body and life on earth.

Because we all have free will, and decide when and where to enter the physical life, we choose our gender when we enter the womb, it isn’t decided when we are in the ethereal world, it can only be determined shortly after conception.

Like all aspects of our life, gender is chosen by the individual, so the soul can experience the type of life it needs to evolve and find it’s way back to the God Source.

The soul, which is “Spirit” in the ethereal world, is actually energy and occupies very little space, it is very minute, and is capable of receiving guidance from our Super or Christ consciousness, it controls the whole body and everything we do.

In essence, the soul guides our every action, which in part are guided from our subconscious memories from the past.

Those memories are part of our mission on earth which is to not only settle our karma, but to chart a new course for the future where karma will no longer play a part in our lives.

Time Is A Continuum

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Time is a continuum 

Time is continuous, it never ends. There is no beginning or end, time is a continuous cycle that exists on different planes or levels of existence. 

I often compare the different periods of times to a radio, when we listen to a radio, to find different radio stations and different forms of music and entertainment, we turn the dial, or these days , we push scan. By doing this, we are able to dial in the station and type of music we desire.

In life we do the same. To live the life our soul desires, we dial in the plane of existence and reality that will give us the life experiences we desire to grow and learn the lessons we come to earth to experience.

There are an infinite number of planes of existence, or vibrational planes. In order to change our plane of existence, all we need to do is to change our focus.

Ethereal time refers to the plane of existence we call heaven, paradise, Ultimate Reality, or one of many other terms we humans associate with the great beyond.

It exists alongside all the thousands of other planes of existence that are present in the cosmos, and which can be accessed by changing our vibrational patterns. 

These planes of existence can be accessed by meditation, hypnosis, or other forms of mind altering methods.

The Source of life, God, or Chi Energy, is present in one and all of the vibrational fields. This field is also parallel to all the other levels of existence, just as all levels, past,present, and future are all just parallel levels that are existing simultaneously, there is no beginning or end.

The past is parallel to the present, and the present is a reflection of decisions made in the past. Only the present reflects the future by the decisions that are made in the present. 

In reality, all the planes of existence are parallel, past, present, and future, it is for the individual soul to determine which plane of existence it will focus on.We don’t, as some believe cross over a bridge to another world, we just change our focus.

We are drawn to the light of a new reality and thus begin a new existence, if we don’t focus on a particular energetic plane, we wander aimlessly through the universe until we determine how and where we want to spend the next human life, just as in life, we sometimes wander aimlessly until we find our true passion.

As stated previously, everything is happening simultaneously, what we experience and see is what our consciousness is focusing on, to change our life, we just need to change our focus. 

There is no right or wrong life, we don’t need to do any certain mission, only the mission we feel in our heart is right for us. What we may or may not have done in a previous life has no bearing on this life, our mission this time around is normally entirely different.

For those souls that may remember a life when they were instrumental in a major change in society, this can be a hard lesson to sometimes understand, they often feel an obligation, when in fact their obligations were fulfilled previously, maybe this time, it’s their turn to learn for their own evolvement. 

We don’t always come here to save the world, it can be someone else’s turn.

Can A Psychic Tell the Future

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Through time immemorial people have consulted psychics, mediums, fortune tellers and the like to see what the future holds for them and their loved ones.

Do they really have a window to the future and how reliable are they?

You will find opinions on both side of the argument, so it is hard to discern what is truth and what is fiction or merely false hope.

Success or failure depends on the circumstances, and free will.

I have found the success rate of those I have consulted  runs at about eighty-five percent.

By that, I find that about eighty-five percent of the time something comes about that coincides with what they have told me. That doesn’t mean the prophecy came about the way I imagined, or even remotely concerning the event I had in mind, it just means there was  something happened that was very similar to what I was told.

There are many times the psychic hit it right on the nose, exactly how I thought, although many times it may take months or even years to come about.

The most important factor concerning the reliability of a psychic is our own free will.

Even though something seems almost a sure thing and will come about, there is always the possibility we will change our mind and go in an entirely different direction. 

There are no guarantees in life and nothing is written in stone, except the ten commandments.  Minute by minute, our free will is subject to changing what we want or should do, we are also dealing with other souls who also have free will, so the options are limitless. 

When another soul changes their course of direction, it can affect our choices and make other options than the one we had originally chosen seem more attractive, thus we are free to choose a better and possibly easier path, leaving the other option open for possibly a later date when that option more suits our needs or desires.

The psychic is dealing with possibilities and can only foresee what we are projecting, if we are projecting a certain reality based on the evidence we have at the present , and those facts , as we see them change, then our future will change unbeknownst to the medium. 

We are the one that changed our reality, the psychic had nothing to do with it, a reputable psychic will possibly see this, that is why most will tell you the final outcome is entirely up to you and the decisions you make on a soul level.

You make these decisions on the soul or super conscious level and then on the conscious level, thus there is often a delay before the decision comes to fruition.

The psychic then fulfills their mission, getting us to think about the options and thereby getting us to decide what it is that we really want.

A Spiritual Encounter In The Outback Of Australia

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Ubirr Rock is a sacred monolith in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia.

Ubirr Rock has several natural shelters that contain a collection of rock art, some thought to be tens of thousands of years old. The art depicts creation ancestors and animals from the area including barramundi, catfish, goannas, long neck turtles,wallabies and kangaroos.

Some of the paintings can date back as far as forty thousand years, with most having been done about two thousand years ago and many have been repainted several times.

The main gallery contains many examples of x-ray art and is probably the most photographed. Also is seen paintings of white men and Mimi spirits ( extraterrestrials) , so thin they can slip in and out of the cracks in the rocks.

A painting of a Thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, can be seen at the northern end of the gallery. This tiger  has been extinct in the area for about 2000 years, and attests to the antiquity of the paintings.

Rainbow Serpent Gallery

This is a woman only site, and is  the most sacred site at Ubirr, although this rule is often relaxed for non-indigenous tourists. This is the spot visited by the Rainbow Serpent or “Garranga’rreli”, during her path across the top end of Australia, during the Dreaming. As she crossed the land, she “sang” the rocks, plants, animals, and people into existence. This path, or songline is still a sacred path to the indigenous people who live in northern Australia.

From the top of Ubirr rock there is a panoramic view of the flood plains and escarpments.

It is from this idyllic view I experienced my most profound spiritual encounter.

Exiting from the bus that brought me here, I left the main trail and began walking around the back of the rock and started climbing the 100 ft. vertical wall, all the time carrying 40 lbs. of camera gear on my back.

As I began my ascent my reality began to change, I was no longer an American photographer visiting Australia, I was transformed into a native carefully climbing a vertical wall, placing each hand and foot in a strategic place, never pausing, but slowly climbing upward as I had done many times before. Always finding a tree, root or rock ledge enabling me to continue my climb, never pausing but slowly climbing upward in my search for truth.

Reaching the top of this sacred Shrine in the middle of some of the most isolated land in the world I began to feel overwhelming love and peace and a sense of being home, I had returned to the Land of Oz.

As I lay on this sacred monument my mind began to pass through the veil of time, into a place from whence all things are seen, back in time, back to a previous millennium, back to the birth of Australia

I felt my consciousness leave my body and rise high above the earth. Looking down I could sense two realities, I had a sense of being high above the earth and looking down upon my lifeless body lying on the rocky cliff, I could observe a bird walking on my right arm, at the same time I was the lifeless body on the cliff, feeling and sensing that same bird walking across my arm.

As the land rose from the sea, the mountains began to form high above the plains; the Rainbow Serpent began to transform the land into a new world called Australius.

I suddenly re-entered my body and came back to the present reality, slightly dazed about what had just taken place. Gazing into my camera close by, I knew that someday when the time was right, I would write about this event.

Upon my return to the bus, Mark, our Aborigine driver informed me that I had been on sacred ground, where no one is allowed without permission. There is a $5,000 fine for that. He then looked at me, winked and said” But you had permission!”

Needless to say, the trip back to Jabiru was quite an experience, I felt like I was coming down from a tremendous high, someone remarked and wondered what I drugs I had taken. I have never taken drugs in my life, but there is nothing that could equal this feeling. The rest of the day I was rather worthless as I tried to absorb what had just transpired! I had been told several months earlier that July 7th would be a special day, being in the outback, I hadn’t even realized that today was July 7th, until now! How interesting, July 7th is the day of the Roswell crash, 42 years to the day!

What a perfect ending to our last night of camping, day broke with a Wallaby sauntering about our camp site.

There Are No Victims, Only Creators

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

Written by Gary Wonning

Throughout history, many people have always looked at themselves as victims, falling prey to those who are in authority over them.

This false belief has continuously put many souls on the continuous cycle of reincarnation and karma, learning the same lessons over and over again until it finally sinks in that they really aren’t victims, they just keep doing the same things over and over again to create the same circumstances until they finally learn the lesson.

As long you keep doing the same things over and over, you are going to get the same results.

Once we take on a new perspective and develop a more positive attitude and become willing to learn from our so-called mistakes, our lives change.

Our lives instantly begin to reflect the shift toward positivity. We learn our conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs and definitions can be our best friends or our worst enemies. As Buddha once said, “Nothing can harm you as much as your own thoughts unguarded.”

It is a concept many  people have trouble understanding and accepting. It comes from placing our faith in an outside source,  the lack of faith in oneself, and from not understanding who we really are.

Whatever we see from our human perspective is only a small portion of truth. We would save ourselves a lot of grief to have more confidence in the wisdom of our higher self, our eternal consciousness, and its connection to the God Source.

Regardless of how bad or tragic a situation might appear from our human perspective, it can lead to spiritual growth, we actually create those circumstances in our life  to grow. In fact, specifically what is happening isn’t as important as how we feel about what is happening, because our feelings determine our vibrational path.

As Buddha said, “Pain is certain, suffering is optional.”

We learn through adversity, as much as we dislike the so-called negative events in our life, those are the times we experience the most soul growth and fulfillment.

If you never experience negativity, you will never know or appreciate the positive times in your life. That is one of the main reasons to reincarnate, there is no negativity in the spirit world when we go Home, or to heaven.

In Heaven, there is only Eternal Bliss. Eternal Bliss in wonderful, but we can never grow by only having Eternal Bliss in our life. Our soul needs challenges and so-called negative circumstances to reach it’s highest potential.

Thus we are not victims, we are only fulfilling the mission we came to earth to accomplish.

The adverse conditions we all face are actually blessings in disguise.

Who is God

Written by Gary Wonning

People have pondered from the beginning of time about the existence of God, and who he is and what it means to them. Everyone seems to come up with a different answer or theory, and many times their theory will change at different points in their life. 

God is often perceived as someone who floats around in an easy chair in heaven or the clouds. Others perceive him as an unforgiving entity who seeks judgment on us all. Others portray him as supreme intelligence or infinite energy. 

Some look at him as a forgiving God who will forgive us regardless of what we have done, or not done. Many times our perception is based on our life experience, or the beliefs we grew up with and was taught by someone influential in our lives.

Many just assume what they have been taught is true and never question it any further.

Regardless of what we have been taught, or the stage of evolution we are currently experiencing on the physical dimension, sooner or later we will all come to the same conclusion.

In the process, we learn that all paths are valid and our search will eventually lead us to the same understanding of God and the universe we live in. 

Through many lifetimes and the resultant learning we acquire because of it, we understand all of creation, and our purpose for existing on the physical plane. 

In the process, we come to understand who God is, and the relationship we have with him.

Regardless of the number of incarnations it may require, or the struggles and hardships on the way, sooner or later, we will all come to the same conclusion.

God is an intelligence and an infinite energy source with unlimited powers and abilities from the perspective of the physical plane, and of the limited, conscious, human mind. We and everything in the cosmos is a part of this energy, it is all-consuming.

You can perceive as human beings who God is only when you are able to access the spiritual world while still in the human flesh.

This can be accomplished through meditation, hypnosis or other methods of enlightenment. 

We are all part of God.

When we incarnate into physical form, our spirits are detached from this energy that we refer to as “Chi Energy,” and we forget our past and our connection with divine source, while in physical form, we need to reconnect with “Divine Source”

Whatever you call this supreme consciousness: God, Universe, Divine Creator, Chi Energy, Architect of the Universe, Source of Life Energy, Great Spirit, Creator, Brahman, Allah, Tao, it is one and the same.

Do We Chose To Reincarnate?

Written by Gary Wonning

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

Open new avenues in your spiritual journey

No one tells you what to do, we each choose to incarnate when we want or need to, and in which life situation we choose. You can organize your life any way you desire.

Nothing is forced on you and you don’t need to go back immediately and you don’t ever need to reincarnate, but you advance more slowly spiritually if you don’t experience earth life. You can live your life with whomever you want, you can choose a challenging life or one of quiet contemplation.

You can come in with souls you have never met or with those you have lived many lives.

Some advanced souls come in only to help others advance spiritually, in doing so they lose some of their energy but gain it back once they enter into the spirit world. 

If you give, you receive back.
