Have you ever thought about the way your particular Soul was created? I have, a lot.
Amongst all my reading, pondering and trainings I've come to understand that we are created by the Divine with particular aspects of itself so that we are totally unique in the whole Universe. I see the process as rather like a portal exuding this blog of light (rather like an egg in shape) and then that blob being taken to a special place in order to develop further and get used to being a Consciousness, rather like a nursery for souls.
As we get used to being us, we are then moved to a place in the Universe which is most aligned with our particular spiritual qualities and gifts to develop further in more of a dense dimension. It is my belief that Earth is perhaps the most dense and we are not all sent here first. But let's not get caught up in the where because it doesn't really matter. What does matter is that our qualities of the Divine are further developed and honed at this place.
So when we finally come to earth to experience the 3rd Dimension, which is quite limited due to the appearance of time and space, we get a real spiritual workout and a true test of all we have learned in all our other placements. Being in a physical body is a real challenge for our souls primarily because we forget who we really are and what we are capable of.
And that's when the story really begins ....
