I am very proud to have Sounds True as the publisher of my books and audios. One of their other authors is the renowned Scottish psychic, Ainslie McLeod.
In his book, The Instruction, he takes you through a process to unveil the life plan your soul created before you were born. It also determines your soul age.
Here’s the bit that’s going to knock your socks off as well as upset a lot of Republicans. (If you are of that persuasion, do stay with me, though. You come out pretty good in the end. Trust me.)
In summary, here’s what I recall him saying that helps to shed light on the political drama being played out in bizarre fashion on the public stage. He describes the difference between old souls and young souls and why we have both here on Earth.
Old souls are those who have been around the wheel of Karma many times and, having had thousands of lives, have developed a great deal of wisdom.
When they incarnate, they tend to become people who have a lot of caring and compassion for others, serve others willingly, create laws that serve everyone and the community as well as the individual. They have a commitment to the common good, have a lot of feminine energy, operate according to values such as integrity, fairness for all, forgiveness, justice, respect for all life forms, and care for the planet. They are very caring but can become codependent. They do tend to think they always know what is best for others and tend to over-regulate community life and tell others how they should live.
Young souls are those who are still learning their lessons and have not yet progressed very far up the ladder of soul evolution, with only a few incarnations listed on their resume.
They incarnate with a lot of male energy and use it to control others and make things happen by force. They think in black and white terms, play the win-lose game a lot, foster intense competition where, to win others have to lose, consider the individual (themselves mainly) to be more important than the common good and act mostly in their own self-interest and those like them. They fail to look after their fellow humans other than those they love, have little compassion for the poor and the weak, are judgmental, self-righteous and self-serving. They are obsessed with money and status. They are quick to punish and exact retribution. When it comes to governing, they are mean-spirited and harsh in their treatment and punishment of those who don’t share their views.
Quite a distinction. So what is my point here in paraphrasing Ainslie? Well, it’s pretty obvious who, among those competing for the nomination of their party’s candidate for President fits each category best. Judging by the bizarre spectacle they have created by turning every debate into a brawl and a shouting match, you don’t have to be clairvoyant to figure out who might be the very young and inexperienced souls, and who might be the ‘elderly’ souls. (PC Alert – Not ‘elderly;’ we should call them “Senior Citizens of the World of Spirit.”)
But that isn’t my point. As I have argued many times before, our purpose for being here is to experience and witness intense separation in order to realize that the opposite of it is Oneness and that Love is the only true reality. We can’t know love until we recognize and experience that which is not love.
That said, Spirit gives us many opportunities to experience the duality we create and because Spirit has a sense of humor, it sends in equal numbers of old souls and young souls to create and play out the illusion of separation on the public stage so strongly that everyone experiences it, and buys into it. And so it goes on until we all wake-up and see the truth.
However, for that to happen, we need some sort of crisis or breakdown to occur. So Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Clinton, and Sanders are there to serve more than one spiritual purpose, none of which have anything to do with politics but everything to do with shifting our consciousness.
- To play out on the world stage the illusion of separation by taking it to such an extreme that enough of us get that it is an illusion. Then the healing can begin.
- To intentionally (though subconsciously, of course), be the catalyst for the creation of a major crisis such as might bring us to our senses. Many of us see that possibility looming if either Cruz or Trump are elected as President. Neither do we exclude the possibility of a big and bloody revolution occurring if Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton were to become President.
- To demonstrate that whatever we see ‘out there’ is a projection of our own consciousness. For me, that means recognizing that what I dislike about them (It’s Trump and Cruz mainly for me), is a reflection of what I hate in myself. It’s the “If You Spot-It-You-Got-It” principle. It becomes an opportunity to love those things in myself – even though I still dislike him and think he would make a disastrous President.
(Spirit wouldn’t care. It is only interested in all of us coming to our senses and waking up. If it takes a crisis to do it, so be it.)
I promised a good ending for the Republications. Here it is. The ones giving us the most opportunities to become acquainted with our own shadow stuff are the Republicans. Nice work dudes! You’re playing the mirror game so well, who could possibly miss it? You are all ‘healing angels’ for us.
Carry on being jerks. We love it and, assuming we have the eyes and the awareness to perceive the truth beneath the drama, we learn from it. Thanks.
