A Past Life

edited May 2013 in Past Lives
_____ had a dream and woke up sobbing. Someone had died, that _____ loved very much. He took his prize possessions and piled them against an old shed in the alley, and set them on fire, but the fire did not consume them. The last thing placed on the fire was the thing he loved most — a beautiful Victorian night stand covered in red velvet. Was this a recall dream?

GETTING IN TOUCH WITH PAST LIVES IS OFTEN VERY EMOTIONAL. AT THIS TIME THE ESSENCE IS BOMBARDING THE PERSONALITY WITH THESE LESSONS FROM THE PAST. THE ESSENCE OFTEN APPEARS TO OVERDO. THE PERSONALITY’S ONLY RECOURSE IS TO INTERPRET THIS AS THE PRESENT, AND ATTEMPT TO PLACE THESE EXPERIENCES WITH THE FEELING OF THE DAY THAT WILL “HAPPEN” TO COINCIDE WITH THE EVENTS OF THE DREAM. IN THIS CASE, THE STUDENT IS GAINING MUCH, AND IN A WAY HIS GAIN MUST CATCH WITH THE PERSONALITY. THE TAPES WILL PLAY EVEN DURING SLEEP. THE PERSONALITY WILL RELATE THE DREAM, AND GRADUALLY ASSIMILATE THE FACTS THAT THE ESSENCE IS FEEDING IT. THE PERSONALITY HAS THE UPPER HAND. EVEN IN SLEEP IT HAS BEEN TRAINED TO DO SUCH. WHY EXPECT LESS? THE EMOTIONS ARE THE PERSONALITY’S ONLY WAY OF RECOGNIZING THE PREVIOUS LIVES THE ESSENCE IS NOW FREE TO PERMIT TO COME THROUGH. THE STUDENT’S PROGRESS IS ONLY MEASURABLE BY HIS PERSONALITY IN THE EMOTIONAL TERMS. THIS STUDENT IS LEARNING TO COMMIT THE PERSONALITY TO GROWTH, AS WELL AS THE FINANCES. THIS STUDENT IS, AT THIS POINT IN TIME, ATTEMPTING TO DECIDE THE OUTCOME OF THIS GROWTH. THIS STUDENT IS THE EPITOME OF THE NEWNESS OF THE PERSONALITY FINDING A NEW TOY THAT IT CAN PLAY WITH, AND THEN DOES NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH. THE PERSONALITY DOES NOT VIEW THE ESSENCE AS SERIOUS AT THIS TIME. YOUR PERSONALITY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND, NOR CHOOSE TO EVEN ATTEMPT TO UNDERSTAND, THE GROWTH THAT THE ESSENCE IS DOING. THE ESSENCE VIEWS THE PERSONALITY AS IT ALWAYS DOES: THAT IS, AS THOUGH IT IS THE ONLY STUMBLING BLOCK IT HAS TO OVERCOME. THE PERSONALITY HAS, SO FAR, IN THIS LIFE, AVOIDED THE CHOICE TO FEEL THE ESSENCE AND EXPERIENCE THE GROWTH. HAVE IT THIS WAY, IF YOU MUST. THE PERSONALITY WILL NOT “WIN” — THE ESSENCE WILL, WHETHER THE PERSONALITY WANTS IT TO OR NOT. YOUR PERSONALITY AT THIS TIME IS TRYING TO DECOY THE ESSENCE AND IS FAILING MISERABLY. THE PERSONALITY WILL PULL EVERY TRICK IN THE BOOK. YOUR PERSONALITY IS ALLOWING THE ESSENCE ONLY THE EXPRESSION THAT THE PERSONALITY WANTS IT TO HAVE. THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE UNDERTAKEN IS GOOD AND VERY DIFFICULT, YES. THE OVERWHELMING FEELINGS WILL CEASE AS YOU GET IN TOUCH WITH THE EMOTIONS, AND THE DECOY THAT THEY INVOLVE. THE CRITICAL POINT IS TRUSTING THE ESSENCE. GETTING IN TOUCH WITH YOUR EMOTIONS REALISTICALLY IS NEW FOR YOU. THE NEXT TIME YOU MEDITATE WE WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU TRY THE SUBJECT OF THE PERSONALITY AND ITS DECOYS. THE PERSONALITY SOMETIMES GETS DISTRACTED LONG ENOUGH FOR RECALL TO ESCAPE THE EDITING. THE ESSENCE IS NOT CONSTANTLY SENDING RECALL MEMORIES TO THE PERSONALITY. THIS IS NOT THE SOLE MOTIVATION OF THE ESSENCE. THE ESSENCE SEEKS FREEDOM, AND LONGS FOR THE PERSONALITY TO BE FREE ENOUGH TO ALLOW THE ESSENCE EXPRESSION, YES. THE ESSENCE, IN OTHER WORDS, IS ALWAYS TRYING TO GET THROUGH THE MAYA, IMPRINTING, AND THE FALSE THINGS IT HAS TO PUT UP WITH AT THE BATTLE WITH THE PERSONALITY. THE ESSENCE WILL SEEK EXPRESSION ALWAYS. BUT HOW OFTEN DO YOU OPERATE IN THE ESSENCE?
