Letting Go and Welcoming Back – Building a History with Souls

Kelley, I lost my cat two days ago at the age of nine. She is a soul I’ve lost before and she found me again, and I knew this through repetitive dreams.  Can I ask for her soul to come back to me again?  This time around, so many events took place that brought her to me I’m hoping it will be as obvious next time. I love this beautiful soul and am devastated she left me so quickly, though I have faith she will be back. Victoria

Thanks for your note, Victoria.  I’m sorry to learn of the loss of your friend.  I know how amazing they are and what important space they hold in our lives.

When we make these kinds of requests, we temper them with honoring what the soul wants, and trust that reuniting occurs in the way best-suited to all involved.  It’s perfectly acceptable to put those kinds of requests out to her, to the Multiverse, to the Divine.

That said, when I see your cat out of form, she’s moved on well, healthily. She’s white, etherically clean, and waiting patiently to re-enter form. My sense is that she will come back into your life, though it will be a couple of years before you greet her. As well, she won’t come in as an animal. Next time she will come as a human child.  She has completed whatever that experience brought her, and her needs stretch into the human path to create herself, now. Until that time, she is a tiny sprite walking with you, just over your left shoulder.

My best to you Victoria, and a happy reunion!

The Timeless Soul

Question: Kelley, I am Wiccan, and my faith espouses a belief in reincarnation. I have problems believing in past lives – because I don’t seem to have any. When I try to bring them up myself nothing comes, and other people haven’t been able to bring them up either. I’ve been told by some people before I’ve an ‘old soul’, but I find this hard to reconcile with the apparent lack of past lives. Can you give me some direction?  Heather

Thanks for your note, Heather!  Your guides tell me right off the bat that the block around past lives lies in the terminology.  For your neural pathways the terms “past life” and “old soul” have no meaning, as you don’t relate to time as a line.  Rather, for you it is more a ball of yarn, or perhaps a spiral.  This relationship to time isn’t unusual; in fact, many quantum physicists would agree that this is how time really works.  The concept of linear time just doesn’t exist in the way you are wired.

Intention is a huge factor in the attempt to catch a glimpse of the timeless self.  Any pursuit into self-knowledge works best with an intention clearly defined at the onset.  If you have been creating your intentions to see yourself within Time with the concept driving your intentions that time is a line, that assumption would have been a hindrance to carrying through the intention.  You experience yourself a great deal more dynamically than most, in that trying to travel back to “Point -4” along a linear progression driven meditation won’t yield useful information for you.  Step back and reframe your intentions.  Bring the focus back from time and place it on events.  If you have used the general intention, “I intend to visit one of my past lives,” to no avail that is because your neural pathways don’t know what “past life” means.  In a quiet space asking, “Am I an old soul?” is irrelevant in the context of Soul.  In Spirit there is no older or younger in the sense of aging as we tend to think of it.  There exist only the many ways we can choose to create ourselves, which may or may not include the amassed information we bring along from all of our experiences of ourselves.  Giving some attention to how you look at time, age, and even cause and effect is very important for you in presenting intention.  What may be more helpful is to set up an intention along the lines of, “Take me to the point that I first saw the ocean,” or “Show me the place on this planet where I first entered into form.”  Taking that linear barrier off the experience gives you access to deep cellular memories, and certainly collective ones.  From there you can become more specific and see the source of current life blocks, relationships and patterns.  This opening of perspective in setting intention also helps you to meet simultaneous aspects of yourself, maybe on other planets, other dimensions, or just in the diverse ways you may manifest yourself in this plane.

That said, your guides give me no insight into the many ways you live—not even a peek.  Yes, you are a soul that expresses itself in many different ways across a variety of experiences.  You have traveled far and wide, so to speak.  Gaining access to that self-info depends on just how far and wide you can conceive of yourself.

Expanding your perspective of Life changes how you live.  The more you cultivate this personal relationship to time, the more meaningless daily phrases like “in the past,” or “one day” become.  The loss of the trappings of time in this dimension enable you to see not just more of yourself, but more of the connection between you and All Things.

See you around, Heather!

Final Fantasy

Question:  Kelley,
For the past year and half, I have been in off-again-on-again relationship.  I am a Leo Woman, he is an Aries Man. We have some good earth elements that help us with all the fire.  This man has a problem with commitment, and has never married even at 44 years.  He says he wants to.  We run hot and cold, and I have emotionally moved on.  But yet he continues to try and come back. There is a huge connection between us.  Can you see anything in his natal chart, or our composite report. Thanks, Cathy in Atlanta

When I ask to see the soul manifestation of this relationship, I am shown both of you as children, him riding a carousel and you standing to the side watching him go round.  The feeling I have about this scene relating to the present dynamic between you is he is having a lot of fun, savoring the moment, not projecting the future.  The child aspect of you, though, is not happy at all.  She has no interest in the carousel and is only there because she feels some danger awaits him.  She has placed herself in the position of thwarting whatever harm could come to him.  I do have a sense that the harm is a very real thing, because he is oblivious to the more grounded and fixed world around him.  He’s only seeing the lights, music and dizzying thrill of the ride.  You two are striking contrasts to each other, in that he is very ungrounded in this plane, and you are a bit too fixed in the formed realm.  Ideally you could be stabilizing agents for each other, but he is too submerged in having fun and you are too fixated on your involvement with him being romantic.  Both of these factors preclude a balanced joining in the present.  There is an old bond between you that has carried over lifetimes, and that has created soul friends of you in the spaces between lives.  That said, I feel your presence in his life isn’t about romantic involvement; rather, holding the space to create his wakeup call.  Until now you have interpreted that role as lying in wait for his downfall.  I definitely see you as anam cara to each other, the Celtic soul bond entailing that what he has not chosen to put himself in the path of for growth, you will put him there.  It’s a very ‘tough love’ connection, which is likely an even stronger testament to the soul work you do together than a romantic relationship could deliver.  The thing is, I think he has gotten very used to you holding that space and for now has no intention of getting off the carousel.  It’s become an enabling situation.  I also think it’s worthy to note this is his perspective across life, not just in terms of relationships.  It’s not about commitment for him.  He’s not a baseless user, he just is not willing to fully root into this plane and be present.  What I see being a catalyst to his growth is for you to leave the theme park.  It’s time for you to bring your energy back from him.  That deep level of support that you have been giving him for eons needs to be reallocated.  I realize you have moved on emotionally, but at an energetic or spiritual level you are still holding him up.  You need your energy back.  In a quiet meditative space, ask your High Self to extract your energy from him, to cleanse it, then return it to you for your own support.  Understand that bringing your energy back is not abandoning him, and it is not severing the deep bond between you.  If anything it is showing him more support, in that you are willing to put your needs first, and that empowerment of self strengthens every bond in your Being.

My best to you, Cathy! Be well!
