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.

The Two Pillars Of Humanity

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

Consequently, in order to appease the Romans. Jesus, King of the Jews, who was a political rebel, was crucified on the cross.

According to some, Jesus Barabbas was the Son of God,  the Romans set  him free.

If there were two men named Jesus, it would solidify the duality of life and allude to the two pillars of life, a belief that has descended through the ages.

There were many claimants of the title messiah at that period in time, and two different sects may have each had their own messiah. The meaning of messiah was defined as someone destined to become king, once you made king status, you were no longer a messiah, you were the king.

Tradition held that there would be two messiahs, to work hand in hand to achieve the final victory of Yahweh and achieve victory for his chosen people. This aligns with the twin flame concept which alludes to the theory that at creation, each soul split into two separate entities, each going its own way, learning and growing on its own in order for the soul to learn separateness from its own self and to learn more quickly than if it was just one entity.

These two represented the two pillars of civilization, the pillar of an earthly king and the pillar of a heavenly king, the two must work hand in hand to form a more perfect union.

A society or culture to continue and flourish must contain the two pillars of government, the political pillar and Godly pillar, and they must work hand in hand.  A country cannot remain strong and free without the hand of God guiding it. 

As we have seen, the two pillars hold a significant position in the civilization of mankind, signifying several different things in various cultures and religious belief systems, such as good/evil, male/female, night/day, darkness/light, etc.

 

Even a successful marriage enlists the concept of the two pillars,  The male presides over the family and the female presides over the home, thereby forming a perfect union.  

The longing for the soul to once again reunite into one is the cause of much conflict in the world as each half continuously tries to find itself. Many go into and out of relationships looking for that special “one”. 

In reality, we are each that special one, we are each two halves of the whole residing in one body.

We are looking for the divinity in ourselves, once we find that the search for our twin is complete.

Why do We Incarnate Into Poor Underpriviledged Lifetimes?

Written by Gary Wonning

There are many reasons why souls decide to incarnate into poor underprivileged lifetimes. 

Understanding this concept is a big hangup for many when they begin to try and understand the theory of reincarnation.  It is often difficult for humans to understand why they would choose such a lifetime  when there are many ways to enjoy an easier less complicated existence on earth. 

They can’t fathom doing something like that to themselves, so they immediately put the burden on God, thereby releasing themselves from any responsibility of the current situation. 

By taking such a position, they immediately nullify any learning they would have had from the life lessons they came to learn, and by doing so it opens themselves up to the possibility of having to do it all over again. These lessons don’t go away until we understand  them fully, regardless of how many lifetimes it takes.

It’s better to learn the lesson the first time it is presented rather to create the need to relearn it many times over.  By learning  during the first incarnation, we are then free to go on to the next life course and continue our evolution. 

If we choose our destiny and the life we incarnate into , why would we choose a lifetime of hardship ? Why wouldn’t we just choose a lifetime of opulence and ease, living a lifestyle admired by everyone instead of one of extreme hardship, poverty, disease and struggle?

Often times, we choose such an existence because we have been unkind to those in such life situations in a previous life, and we have come back to rectify what we did and make amends to those we have offended. 

We all need to live such lives to be able to understand the whole of creation, we simply are unable to understand a certain life situation unless we live it, it just can’t be explained to us. 

Those lifetimes are the times we learn compassion and humility and are often deemed our most valuable lifetimes, the times when we learn and evolve the most. There are no wasted lifetimes, even though we may think so at the time. We can often learn  more by existing in the most humble stations of life than we sometimes learn being an important dignitary on the world scene. 

 

Often times, our first incarnation on earth will be in such a station in life, it is the souls way of gradually adapting to life on earth, and maybe even possibly getting some of the hard lessons out of the way early in their earthly travels. 

The reasons we all incarnate in these lifetimes are many and varied. The more we inquire and study our past, the more we can learn and control our future.

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.

American Revolution:The Battle of Yorktown

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

It had been a long struggle, the struggle for American Independence.

The continental army had faced adversity at every corner, a freezing winter at Valley Forge with little clothing and food, many defeats on the battlefield, at times it seemed to be more than the rag tag army could overcome.

But overcome they did, responding to every adversity with a new found spirit to found a new country, a country based on freedom and independence, where the common man would be able to control and choose his destiny with as little government interference as possible.

It was this determination and a noble cause which enabled the small army to clutch victory from the jaws of defeat. 

Many times, when defeat seemed imminent, Divine Intervention, as General George Washington termed it, would change the course of the war in the Americans favor. 

General Washington himself had escaped capture and point blank gunfire without harm, many times a change in the weather provided cover for the soldiers to escape capture unharmed. 

The final battle of the war would be no different, as the British and Americans faced off once more, British reinforcements were lying off the coast of Virginia. If they had been able to successfully land, the British Army would have outnumbered the Americans once again.

Divine Providence once again played it’s hand, a sudden wind began blowing off shore and prevented the ships from landing, enabling General Washington and his army to strike the final blow and win our independence, once and for all.

The Rainbow Serpent in Aboriginal Folk Lore

.photo of ayres rock, "uluru" in central Australia

The life of the Australian Aborigine

Written by Gary Wonning

The Rainbow Serpent is the cornerstone to the aboriginal beliefs and customs.

The Rainbow Serpent, the symbol of creation to the Australian aborigines means different things to different people, much like God means different things to various people in the west. 

Many aborigines believe they have seen the Rainbow Serpent, they report it has being seen as a snake, and is  similar to meeting God, or an Angel.

They believe the Rainbow Serpent made all the water and everything in creation.

Some compare it to the Loch Ness Monster, and like seeing UFOs only certain people  have seen it.

Most say the Rainbow Serpent is more feeling than visual. Like a God, if you believe it is there, then it’s  there, like the wind blowing.

We believe God is our creator, they believe Rainbow Serpent is their creator, and the Rainbow Serpent created everything and watches over them, it takes a special skill to see him,  only tribal Elders meet him.

They believe she came  from the  Sun.

The Rainbow Serpent is often referred to as male or female, depending on the individual and circumstances.

It seems most cultures have the same thoughts towards who or what God is , they just use different names and symbols, often times the names and symbols are guided by their environment and their perception of reality.

Twin Flames: Are They For Real?

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

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

Written by Gary Wonning

There has been much discussion about Twin Flames, who they are, and even if they exist.

Even today, there are many who believe there is no such thing as a twin flame, or twin soul.

As we become more spiritually in tune, more and more information is revealed to us from our higher source and as a result our learning continues.

Among most people, there has been little doubt that on some level they do exist, eventually, you can’t ignore the feelings of your soul.

We can only learn higher knowledge as we advance up the ladder of learning, slowly, taking each step as it comes, advancing along life’s path. 

We eventually learn, and it becomes part of our belief system that  are all souls  have a body, we are not bodies that have a soul. The real us never dies, we are immortal. It is only the physical body that dies and remains on earth, leaving behind memories of who we were in that particular incarnation.

After exiting the physical body, the soul and spirit live on as energy.

As we know, energy cannot be destroyed, once it is  created, it can only change shape and or form.

The soul is capable of dividing into different entities if it so chooses and once it has advanced spiritually.

To the question as to whether there are twin flames, I like the following analogy.

The best way to maybe explain a soul is to compare it to a clump of grapes, with a soul being the clump of grapes. 

Then you compare each lifetime to an individual grape. When a soul, or a portion of the soul reincarnates, it breaks free from the clump, travels to earth or elsewhere, does it’s thing, learns the lessons it was sent to learn and then returns to the clump, and relates to the others what it has experienced, much like we do on the physical level when we return from a vacation.

Being a part of the clump, the individual spirit or energy remembers being united with the group soul, and begins looking for other aspects of it’s being so it can once again reunite with itself, so to speak. 

Thus, the concept of twin souls is created. This searching creates much conflict on planet earth and can lead to discord in relationships.

We often look at the concept as there only being one twin flame, in reality, there can be as many as the soul determines it wants to have inhabiting physical life at one particular time.

 All the lives of a spirit can be accessed by the incarnated soul,  which explains why sometimes multiple people access the same lives when under regression. 

When different spirits of the same soul incarnate, they each benefit from what the other aspect encounters and learns. That is the reason one soul may have several “parts” in physical life at one time. 

Since all time is happening simultaneously, all souls are omnipresent, they can be anywhere and everywhere at once. That is why we can speak to our departed friends and family, even though they are off in another lifetime somewhere, part of them still exist in the spirit world and are  thereby accessible to us.

Incarnating into multiple, concurrent lives, a soul could evolve much faster by gathering more experience and positive energy. 

A soul incarnated into multiple persons could fulfill very complex plans to help humanity’s spiritual evolution. On a personal level, we often pick our life partners on the basis of what our life plan is, when we pick the wrong partner for the wrong reasons, it messes up our whole life plan and things can never be right until we find the right partner. 

In the case of twin flames, the idea that hurting others means hurting yourself is literally true.
