“To be continued:” Stating the Obvious and 4 Proofs of Reincarnation

This week’s 5-minute seminar, I’m back to my metaphorical happy place — connecting the dots between an episode of Poldark and proof of reincarnation.

At the end of this episode of Poldark (Season 2, Episode 1), I was surprised and delighted to see the words “To be continued,” promising me that next time I tune in, the story will be picked up right where it left off. Ok. Well. That got me thinking. This little statement-of-the-obvious might just go a long way in settling the debate of reincarnation… or not.

So here are four proof points that actually might.

1) Spontaneous past-life memories, especially of children who could have had no prior knowledge of previous events, which have been proven through the research of those like Dr. Ian Stevenson, and now Dr. Jim Tucker, who is continuing Stevenson’s work.

2) Past life events and facts that surface during past life regression, which are later proven.

3) The substantive and intricate detail of people recounting past lives from birth to death without any preconceived notion of such a story line.

4) The deep current-life, waking-state healing that results from following emotion to its source in a past life and resolving challenge, forgiving, and letting go.

As always, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments. You can also tune in to the conversation on my Facebook page @MaritFischerSpiritualRegression.

Oh, and I’ll now be posting my videos on YouTube, which means sharing ease for you… and far less attractive thumbnail options for me.

 

Why to bad things happen to good people?

Why do bad things happen to good people?

You've asked great questions. I promised to answer all of them (or connect you with someone who can). I'll pick one Q each week to respond to via video. Here it is, Good Question Video (GQV) #1: "Why do bad things happen to good people?" Well, here's what I've learned…

Posted by Marit Fischer • Spiritual Regression & Energy Healing on Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Last week, I launched a Facebook page to share information about this work that I do, and dedicated to answering every question that you ask me about it. This is a place for safe, judgment-free conversation about spirituality, things that you might be experiencing that you don’t quite get, and about what’s going on in the world.

I received so many great questions that I decided to pick one of them per week to answer via video. I’m calling this series the GQV — the Good Question Videos.

This time, I address the phenomenal and constant question: “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Or, perhaps, for many people: “How can an omni-loving God allow such terrible things to happen?”

The answer that I have come to, based on my own experience and the experience of thousands of people who have regressed to their interlife or Life Between Life, is that we planned for these things to happen before our life so that we could learn, grow, and develop as souls.

We don’t remember what we planned for ourselves as souls, because when we incarnate, it is like a veil of amnesia falls over us, allowing us to face our lessons with complete commitment, fully invested in them and their outcome.

Is this news to you? If so, it could affect you in a range from completely mind blowing to mildly amusing. Let me just say it was an absolute paradigm shift for me. A liberating and empowering one. One that answered all sorts of other questions.

I invite you to think about it. Does it make sense to you? As always, the beauty of this life is that you get to decide what makes sense to you. Does this fit in your mind’s puzzle? How about your heart’s?

There are several books that cover this in depth, or that touch on it in a comprehensive overview of the soul journey. Perhaps you’d like to pick one up?

The universal unconscious, divine inspiration, and how our future may be written in our past.

As part of the Shift that so many have been heralding, there are currently many ideas and understandings re-emerging in our consciousness. Where do these understandings come from? Divine inspiration, yes. But I believe there is more to the whole story.

There are many people around the world who are simultaneously realizing and actualizing what may seem to be wholly unique and inspired revelations. They are each simultaneously and in their own ways, fulfilling them. These “new” concepts are somehow… encoded in the unity consciousness electromagnetic grid of human awareness.

Let me pause and take a step back.

Art is often a precursor of consciousness. We, as witnesses of art, are able to grant license to the artists of the world to inspire and move us. We let down our analytical guards. Music, films, paintings, and books often herald or usher further understanding in a way that is far more palatable to human consciousness. Artists can be or just are more fluid, open, eccentric in the communication of ideas, ideals, or messages. You know artists who feel that they are simply conduits. It’s an “open myself and the words come to me” kinda thing. I’ve been there. You’ve probably experienced it too. Elizabeth Gilbert is one writer who has openly talked about this in her work. Lots of people have, but she’s particularly relevant here. You can check out her 2009 TED talk: Your Elusive Creative Genius, to hear straight from her.

Gilbert wrote “The Signature of All Things.” It’s a striking novel that interweaves the deeply spiritual and the pure scientific of life to explore evolution. There is lots I can call out here that is relevant to this larger conversation (male brain v. female brain; duality; spiritual sex v. primal sex; etc.) but what is of key interest is that through the book, one learns that evolution, aka the “Survival of the Fittest” was discovered by at least three different people, in three remote parts of the world, relatively simultaneously, and in very different ways. And, interestingly, it was the fittest of the three, Darwin, whose name is now associated with the science and with global understanding.

Though this is historical fiction, it is truth in art. From what I understand, the same is happening now with a more astute comprehension of humans as spiritual light beings.

Also of interest is the work of Lyall Watson in “Lifetide: The Biology of the Unconscious,” which describes a 30-year scientific research project on Japanese monkeys. He tells how scientists watched wild monkeys to whom they gave sweet potatoes, but laid them in the sand. The monkeys didn’t like that sand. Finally one young monkey figured out that washing them made all the difference. Yum. So she taught the older monkeys, who then taught others. Then, at some point, when there was a critical mass of understanding (100 monkeys), all the monkeys on the island started washing their potatoes — even those who hadn’t encountered the original little monkey that started the trend. But of more interest, all the monkeys of this species across all Japanese islands started washing their potatoes on the exact same day.

Oh, hi, Jung. Oh, hello, Joseph Campbell. Good to see you again, universal unconscious.

What we can gather here is that we are all connected. As the understanding spreads, so we all come to see. It’s beautiful really.

Shine United

IMG_6740[1]

There are times in my life when a theme comes up all over the place and sticks around until I pay attention. I consider these to be messages, seeds maybe — perhaps planted by my spirit guide. Or, maybe I’ve sent them to myself — perhaps according to the plan I helped design and agreed to execute before coming into this life. Whatever they are, when I actually have the wherewithal to recognize them, I think of them as gifts.

This go round the message is: “You are light. Shine! Shine united.”

Yesterday, I went for a beautiful run on a snowy, mostly packed trail in the mountains near my home. As I do when I run alone, I was listening to music. This is less to preoccupy my mind than to focus it. It helps me find the meditative state that I love so much when I run. Some of my greatest revelations and spirit conversations have taken place while I’ve been powering along a mountain trail. (This was the subject of my essay, Ghost Run, in the book: Tales From Another Mother Runner. You can also listen to the podcast of my conversation with the Mother Runners.) I was listening to Spotify, to the weekly mixtape of personalized music they serve up each Monday called Discover Weekly. That means that this was not a playlist that I made, but one that the master DJs of the app algorhythmicked up for me based on the music I like and listen to. The songs played out like my own stream of consciousness and got me right where I wanted to be: physically moving and spiritually open. Then, on a particularly deep section of trail that caused me to slow down and post-hole my way through, the song “Scare Away the Dark” by Passenger came on. It stopped me cold for a second. I just breathed hard and listened.

Sing, sing at the top of your voice
Love, without fear in your heart
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

When I picked up the pace again, “Spring to Come” by the John Butler Trio rang through.

Out of the darkness, only light can come
After a lonely long night comes the sun.

Then, as I reached the summit, a deeply moving instrumental filled me up. It was like my own personal soundtrack, exactly matched to who I am and what I was doing. It resonated through me like my it was coming from my own heart and bouncing off the walls of the inside of my skin. It wasn’t until I got back to the car at the trailhead that I looked to see what that song was. It was “On the Nature of Daylight” by Max Richter.

I heard them all. I paid attention. Hmm, “Ok,” I thought. “I’m listening.”

Today, again while running, I was tuned in to Richard Martini reading his book “The Flipside.” (I like the book and recommend it, though if I could do it over, I’d opt to read it, not listen. He narrates the audiobook himself and the variable quality is distracting.) In today’s chapter, Martini shares a Life Between Lives session between a therapist named Scott Detamble and a client named “Thomas.” Thomas says:

We’re poised to make a huge jump in consciousness and it’s happening already among us. I’m just one of the workers working on that…It’s a shift in our DNA, awakening parts of our apparatus that have been closed down. When we come into these bodies, we shut down much of our awareness and our abilities to be encapsulated. And yet there’s much in these bodies we can draw upon and be open to. As a species, we’re evolving, and it takes little interventions and many people working on many levels to make that happen. There are many light beings here, even if they’re not aware that they’re aware, they’re aware.

Being a light being and animal, we’ve had so much strife in our animalness, struggling back and forth, yet we’re driven by it and we can’t help it. Only when we tune into our higher self can we let the animal be and it’s no longer driven with out of control passions… We bring great joy to all that is. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun.

During the session, Thomas’ spirit guide Redeem speaks directly:

This generation now, the beings that are incarnated now, the beings that will live now, the beings that will pass in the next 80 years or so, are going to instrumental in the shifting of this planet…

Thomas needs to have this awakening on the conscious level and go forth from here… [He] needs to align with those communities that are around him, that are also about the same thing… Light workers, such as himself, who are here to see the shift in the human species. It has been foretold for at least a generation. You’ve seen it in your pop cultures, your SONGS, seen it in your prophecies. All humans on this planet can feel it. It is a vibratory state. It is a yearning. This planet has gone through several shifts. We’re on the brink of another. That is the community of which we speak.

I take from all of this, in sum, that it’s time for light beings to unite. To shine and unite.

Funny that the message I kept hearing yesterday was “Shine on, little shiner.” Ok, ok. Maybe not so funny.

Before heading up to my office today to reflect and write, I made myself some peppermint tea. I opened the cupboard and looked in at my awesome selection of favorite-mugs-that-mean-something, wondering which one I should pick to suit my mood. There, right in front of me, was the one. A biz dev person from an ad agency sent it to me years ago trying to get my attention. I wasn’t in the market for an agency then, but the cup was cool so I kept it. Today, it took on a whole new meaning.

“Shine United,” it reads.

I’ve always loved it. Now I love it even more.

Well, ok. I got the message loud and clear. And I’ll do it. I will make the conscious effort to shine. To be the brightest me. To learn and heal and love and then to share, to unite.

But it’s not just about me, it’s about all of us. To shine, we have to first accept that we’re light. That’s sometimes hard. Sometimes it takes some polishing of the equipment. Sometimes it takes a little self-reflection before the full on self-projection. That’s OK. But as we get stronger and when we’re ready, it’s our time to turn on.

To unite, then, is to share. Maybe it’s to teach. Maybe it’s to heal. Maybe it’s to listen. Maybe it’s to set free. It will mean different things for each of us at different times. And that’s good. It won’t be boring. We have too much work to do for this being-of-brightness to be boring.

So let’s Shine United, shall we? Let’s shine on, speak up, and reach out. As “Thomas” said and I quoted above, “it’s a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun.”

The Way of the Soul, Version Pre-K.

The other day, in the early morning, my five year old snuggled up on my lap with her blanky and her stuffed fox and her sleepytime hair. She was crying. She had had a bad dream. “Mommy, I never want you to die. I never want to lose you.”

I set down my coffee and my computer, took out a notebook and some pens, and drew her this:
Infinity (1)

 

“We are all bigger than our skin,” I said as I colored. She watched me quietly. “We all are part of our own Big Me, which is our soul. See? Yours is pink in this picture, and mine is yellow. And our Big Me lives on forever. When I die, the part of Big Me that has been here with you will simply leave my body and go back to the Spirit Realm, where I can love you with all my might, even more, without the boundaries of this body. Even after I die, and you can’t touch me, I’ll still be with you. You can communicate with me through your heart and your mind whenever you want. I’ve always loved you and I’ll always love you. We were together before and we’re together now, and we can choose to be together again, both in the Spirit Realm and back here on Earth in another life, if that’s what we want to do.”

She sat for a while and looked at the picture.

“Like when I was your mommy before and you were my baby?”

“Yes.”

“Will we always be mommy and baby?”

“No. Not necessarily. We might be daddy and baby or friends or brother and sister. You see?”

I watched her thinking about it. She traced her fingers over the arrows and touched the figures.

“Ok. I get it, Mommy. But who will give me Reiki?”

“Oh,” I smiled. “I’ll teach you how.”

“It won’t be the same.”

“I know. But is that ok?”

“Yes. I will just use my magic mind powers to call you and we can do it long distance.”

I laughed. “That’s a deal.”
