Understanding The Journey of the Soul: How You Choose Life Experiences and Create Your Reality

HJ: The journey of the soul is one of an increasingly deeper understanding of the self and hence the reality in which one finds themselves.  The irony of this is that you truly do create your reality, whether or not you are consciously aware of it.  As a friend once said, the universe is like a ‘cosmic mirror’, constantly reflecting back to you your beliefs and perceptions.  This can make it extremely difficult to realize that one is still lost in the illusion of powerlessness — of life happening to them and not being created by them.  This is because if one believes that they are victims in life, then they will see nothing but evidence of this ‘fact’ as the cosmic mirror of the universe reflects back to them their perceptions of reality.

Therefore, this belief acts like a trap and keeps many people stuck in the illusion that they are powerless, when in fact they are creating their reality always and can embrace and ‘take control’ of this process just as soon as they shift their awareness.  However, herein lies the crux of the matter — one must voluntarily suspend their current beliefs/paradigms and switch to the more expansive, life affirming, unlimited view that is encompassed by our true roles as creator beings.  As the ego tends to identify very strongly with ones beliefs about themselves and the world around them, this can be tough for many people to do and there is often times a period when switching between the two frameworks in which one is trapped in doubt and confusion as a result.  In these cases, it always best to have a guide or mentor, if possible.  It is not requisite, and one can certainly find their way on their own, but it may simply take a bit longer and involve more struggle.

For those without a mentor who are searching for answers, it is no surprise that you find yourself here, as in its own way, this site is a mentor for the mentorless.  We present to you food for thought like the article below, which will help guide those who are ready to change out of the throes of ignorance and into the bright light of their destiny.  The beautiful essay below by Michael Forrester is sage guidance for anyone on the path of awakening who is seeking a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them.

There Are No Victims In This World – Why It’s Time To Accept Humanity’s Power of Creation and The Soul’s Journey

There Are No Victims In This World – Why It’s Time To Accept Humanity’s Power of Creation and The Soul’s Journey

It’s still a concept difficult to accept, even by those well-versed in meta-physical sciences, but we all create our own reality, from health to disease, happiness to sorrow and birth to death. There is not one experience that is not governed by our own creation. When we choose to experience what we perceive as violent or even horrific events in our lives, others tend to unleash very emotional judgements on those experiences without any concept of their higher purpose. We are not so much in a journey of discovery, but more of creation and it’s not as important to find out who we are, but who we want to be.

It’s All About Our Choices…Yes Yours Too

The world is in a specific state and condition because of the choices we have made (or have failed to make) as a collective. Yes, there is blame and pointing fingers–he did, she did, they did, the dark powers did, the powers that be did. Well who are those people and entities? They are you, part of you and part of who you are. Whether it falls within your comprehension or not, the Earth is in its current state because of you, just as your life is the way it is because of the choices you have made–or failed to make. We are all one and operating in one unit. Although it may not seem this way…it is.

There are no right or wrong choices. They are just choices and your life experience can be no other way than how you design it to be. You are the orchestrator, architect and designer all combined into one. Your thoughts are pure energy translating every frequency into an experience. Do you think your thoughts end after they leave your heart and mind? They never end. If anything they will go out into the universe and come back at you like a boomerang.

All thoughts are creative and attract the energy that they emit. Love will attract love and fear will attract fear, but the greatest masters that have ever walked the Earth are those who have loved unconditionally in every moment of their lives. Even as they were being tortured or killed, they loved those who were considered their oppressors or murderers because they understood these people were part of them and part of the grand cycle, so they and their oppressors may rise to their highest purpose.


We have reached a critical mass now on Earth where duality is being left in the dust and multiple perspectives are bringing us together to understand each other in ways we never thought possible. We are all seeing each other for who we really are, but more than this, for who we can and want to be.

The Soul Knows Exactly What It Needs 

In actuality, we need not attract anything. The frequencies that are trying to communicate with us to help us achieve our highest purpose are all around us, all the time. They are constantly trying to reach us. The problem is, we are always rejecting them. Once we let go of our fears, worries, anger, stress, anxiety, guilt, shame and all other emotions deterring us from our true selves, all of these frequencies will finally become part of who we are and we will never go back to who we once were.

Our soul knows everything intimately. It does not have to be taught anything. Only the human ego perceives that it must learn from an outside source to understand. But all the understanding and wisdom that is possible lies within. We all know how to heal ourselves from any disease, attract any relationship and correct and perceived negative into a positive.

However, knowing is not enough for the soul. It must experience and this is the soul’s primary reason for incarnating on Earth.

The soul experiences through choice. So why do souls choose to experience what we perceive as good and bad choices? This is where the human ego cannot fathom tragedy and horrific events as choice. This is the point where most of humanity cannot separate emotion from an understanding of a soul’s journey.

We have lived hundreds even thousands of lives on Earth. Each life created a specific circumstance to assist in the soul’s highest purpose and each successive incarnation is perfectly positioned to fulfill a prior lesson in the last life. So we cannot possibly judge another soul’s journey in this life because we have little concept of what the soul has come to experience in its current incarnation.

There Are Absolutely No Victims

Is it wealth, poverty, success, failure, power, greed, or being what we consider a predator, murderer, abuser, or is it being the victim, the one abused or murdered. We are only human. We cannot make those judgements because we do not know what is in the soul’s agenda book. We cannot experience anything without attracting it. We create each experience long before it commences.

So do we ask to be murdered, raped, abused, or tortured? Yes, yes, yes and yes. Do we ask to be in a loving family, cared for, supported and encouraged? Yes, yes, yes and yes. They are all different types of experiences created through different frequencies, but they are only frequencies which are neutral in nature. Humanity places the negative or positive labels on these frequencies which are then translated into vibrations and experiences.

A murderer in this life may choose to experience being a victim in the next life and may also choose to be murdered by the same soul who incarnated as the victim in this life. Once the curtains close, we are all one on the other side. There is no right and wrong.

Equally, a child who is abused and raped by their father may reverse roles in the next life to experience the duality on Earth. The soul who incarnated as the abused child may then choose to be the abuser. But the soul is always hoping for one thing–that the incarnation chooses love above all else. That its connection with source is stronger than the human ego. If the lesson is not learned, the incarnations will continue until the soul has achieved what it has come on Earth to learn.

Evil Is a Human Perception Not A Universal Reality 

Does this mean that the Hitlers, Maos, and Stalins of the Earth did not receive punishment? There is no judgement on the other side. Why would there be? These souls made contracts with each other before they incarnated. How would you feel if you and bunch of your friends all committed to a mutual agreement before a specific event only to find out all bets were off after the event took place? There is no hell or sin and these are just figments of the human imagination which has allowed the world to better process duality. God loves all unconditionally.

Evil as perceived by humanity does not really exist. It consists of what can be referred to as a negative energy that draws from a series of frequencies which create a specific vibration. This vibration segregates, separates and diversifies consciousness. Positive energy binds, intergrates, unifies and makes consciousness one. The former hinders communication while the latter allows for communication in harmony.

Souls Choose Their Path Very Carefully – Don’t Judge It 

Souls may choose to incarnate into a specific family to learn what it is like to feel “negative energy” so that they may continue to cycle that method of communication as they become adults and then either choose a path of enlightenment or not. The same applies for souls who incarnate into loving families who encourage only positive communication and as they become adults–they may choose to maintain that vibration or choose an alternate path of “negative energy” if necessary. More often than not, a soul which chooses to incarnate in a family which encourages positive communication will maintain that vibration their entire lives, where those who incarnate into families who communicate based on fear and the negative will have a much harder time changing their vibration. But again, this is the path they have designed for themselves.

Souls may incarnate to feel powerless in their incarnation and choose a lifetime of physical and mental control over others–domination and emitting that vibration to others around them. This is their path and they continue this cycle through negative behaviors because all they have provided themselves with are negative tools. It is all they know. Because they feel only powerlessness, they must exert dominance through their positions in the workforce, family, relationships and other life circumstances. It is the only way they can feel normal with some sense of importance in the world.

These people usually have tremedous pain deep inside and more than anything else need those people on positive energetic paths to show them how to let go of their fear and find that space within themselves that can be loved unconditionally, so they may release these patterns once and for all. It always comes down to love and every being can snap out of any negative programming with the right communication tools. All it takes is the right person with the right set of energetic and communication skills, and any conversion is possible. Who we surround ourselves with is key to our growth and spiritual evolution.

Human beings judge the contracts souls make because they have difficulty understanding why specific behaviors come from some humans and not others. It’s because we all have different lessons to learn, but make no mistake, every human being on the planet right now is a divine master at the game we call Earth. So powerful in their mastery that behind the veil, even they can hide their greatest powers from themselves.

We Are Limitless

The soul is limitless. It has no boundaries as humans do. Think of the soul as the Grand Master of a video game. When we select the Grand Master, we never lose. So we must select weaker opponents until we arrive at the point where we become so efficient at playing with a weaker opponent that we can one day come close to challenging the Grand Master. Humanity is arriving at this point on Earth. We are beginning to see that we have powers that have been hidden for so long, that it is now time to embrace them and unleash their magic for we are all really magicians.

In this incredible time of awakening, adopt an open mind and see through the multiple perspectives that are now more readily available to you at every experience. You can see things today like you never could before. Take the time to practice emitting a vibration that encompasses love, kindness and patience. Every soul has their own journey and it’s not your position to judge, but to allow the experience and be amazed at how we can all create each and every moment in our lives through our own design and the way we intended…always have….always will.

You are a master. You are deeply and unconditionally loved. You are part of all that is. You are consciousness…you are God and we are all one.

  1. Thank you for your guidance. Your journal is a source of genuine inspiration and truth. I send you blessings to give you strength to keep guiding those in need.

  2. i was given a concept recently that has had a wonderful effect on my daily experience of life. my teacher said; “we have somehow learned to think of the soul as residing somewhere inside our body/mind. what is more true is that the body resides inside the soul.”
    just this thought, as i meditate on it and allow it to live through me, has changed the way i experience all my surroundings, the ‘other’ people whom i see regularly or those whose paths cross mine, as a part of my soul and as such i begin to experience a softer, more loving and appreciative interaction with everything and everyone around me.
    thank you for this blog…it leads me to many places of light, love and divine creativity. with gratitude and appreciation, berdalee
