Do We Create Our Life?

Written by Gary Wonning

Do we create our life?

That is a question that has been pondered by mystics for centuries. 

We all have free will, it is a fact of nature and is not up for debate.  Free Will isn’t something that can only be applied to certain circumstances and not to others, if we chose the alternative, by choosing that, we would be exercising free will. 

If we are free to choose whether to have a hot fudge sundae or a milk shake,  then we are free to determine all things that come about in our lives.  Free Will is static and unchanging, it isn’t something that is subject to our whims, it is a law of nature, one of the laws of Nature and Nature’s God. 

If we would choose to believe we don’t have free will in all things, we are still practicing free will in order to chose that option. We simply can’t remove ourselves from the reality of free will.

Thoughts create actions and actions create results. If you think back, everything you are experiencing in reality today is the result of actions and thoughts you had sometime in the past.

We like to blame others for our misery, but that is not the case, everything happens for a reason, and those reasons are spawned in our own mind, our own subconscious, our subconscious that is linked to the super conscious, or Christ Consciousness that unites us all.

That consciousness that draws the souls and circumstances to us that results in us being able to accomplish whatever mission we chose to participate in during our time on planet earth. 

Thus we do create our own life with our thoughts and actions, and beliefs. Every experience we have accumulated before entering the physical existence, all those previous lives, enable us to bring new power and strength into our reality: more energy to this life to enable us to make a difference in not only our life, but the lives of all those whom we come into contact with. 

Without us realizing it, our subconscious mind creates the life we are going to experience, well before our physical birth.  It is our super conscious mind that knows our proper course of action, our Christ Consciousness,  this is our connection to the God Force that runs the universe, we all all part of it and through it, our choices and whether we follow the promptings of the soul that determine the direction of our lives and the outcome regardless of the challenges presented us.

Sedona: My First Encounter With Bell Rock

 

Written by Gary Wonning

An excerpt from my book, The Portals of Sedona.

Soon we approached the Hwy 179 exit and began driving towards Sedona.  Suddenly, rounding a mountain, in clear view directly in front of us was a large red rock that looked like a bell.

I remember her saying something about it being Bell Rock, Well, that makes sense since it looks like a bell.

For whatever reason, I began to feel light headed, extremely hungry, and disoriented.

This is crazy, I just ate a big breakfast two hours ago, and I can’t be hungry. I continued looking at Bell Rock and the feelings intensified.

I stopped the car just short of Bell Rock for some photos of this captivating rock. I was extremely hungry and making an effort to stay grounded, I ate everything Emma brought from home, and I was still hungry.

The journey was just beginning.

Do We Decide When To Die

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Do we decide prior to reincarnating when we will die?

We decide our whole live before we reincarnate, but once we reenter the physical realm  we have an opportunity to change our life plan and what we want to accomplish.

We always have free will and can and do change our life plan frequently, by doing this we activate alternate lives and our whole perspective changes.

We then follow that path until we accomplish our goals or once again change what we want to see and do.

Thus, you can change when you want to leave your human life. When souls decide to leave their physical lives, they take all of their energy and their bodies become lifeless.

They then  leave the physical plane of that life for good, entering the ethereal plane of the Earth.  When a soul passes, it feels lighter as it is leaving all the feelings from physical life behind.

When a person dies, the memories of absolutely everything that human being lived and experienced, the memories that are stored in the human brain,  are taken by the soul and stored  in the Akashic memories, at the Tree of Life.

The memories belong to their spirit, their greater or higher self. The spirit has access to all those memories  anytime it wants.

Also, that soul will be able to access that life’s memories in its next life if it does a past life regression, or as is the case many times, the soul has spontaneous past life recall which can trigger a desire and curiosity to know more of it’s past. 

Many times this is the souls way of becoming aware of  memories from the past and create awareness of former existences both on planet earth and elsewhere about the cosmos.

Reality is a matter of perception.

Regardless of how it comes about, or if it comes about, these situations are always a result of the souls free will to decide to experience or not experience a particular  experience.

Can Souls Die ?

Art Prints

 

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.

Why do We Incarnate Into Poor Underpriviledged Lifetimes?

Photography Prints

 

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.

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.

Defining Reality: Part One

photo of the Egyptian Sphinx at sunset

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

Written by Gary Wonning

Many times it is impossible to define reality.

I think we all have had moments in time when objects or living beings appeared to make us question our definition of reality.

There are many stories I have heard about people seeing objects or their relatives that have passed on, appearing before their eyes in three dimensional reality.

These instances suddenly occur, we see them, think about them, maybe we even related them to those we think may be receptive and then the moment is stored away in our subconscious mind, often to never be thought of again.

We contemplate the singular circumstance, maybe even find someone else who has had a similar experience, and after finding no logical explanation, we go on with our lives.

These holes in reality can occur and do occur anywhere on planet earth, but can be more prevalent in areas like Sedona Arizona where the vortex energy leads to a more favorable environment for such activity.

Often times they occur because the individual is trying to deal with a life changing event or they are ready to begin a new spiritual enlightenment, or maybe, because of the symbolism involved, it may be a forewarning of events to come in their life.

I have heard of several such events in people lives soon after the passing of a loved relative or friend where the person who has passed suddenly appears before their own eyes.

Often times, no words are spoken and before the observer can comprehend what is happening, the entity leaves without a trace. The observer is often left  perplexed, astonished, and questioning his sanity.

In my own humble existence on planet earth, there have been several such reality shattering events.
