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?
