This blog page is a work and book in progress.
My next book will be on the metaphysics of aging. Presently it is in a state of construction with a bit of it to be published as blogs. When the book is published it will talk to and with the reader, the curious, and those whom the words and thoughts speak on a deeper more primal level. As usual, there will be no medical or scientific explanations attempted since I am a healer, not a scientist. I am more interested in looking at the mundane through a spiritual lens than looking at the spiritual through a third dimensional illusionary one. I will also not refer to or link to the works of others nor will I use illustrations or images. I leave those editorial and designing skills to others, but I want you, the reader, to dive into your inner knowing to rediscover yourself and how you relate to the real, the unseen worlds and beings.
This time is so significant to us all that I will constantly emphasize it again and again in as many ways I am able. This lifetime is your most important, ever. The most important purpose of this most important lifetime is to live your life to what you believe to be the fullest, meaning to enjoy responsible eating, working, and loving. To accomplish these purposes, you must make decisions and choices what will balance you-as-soul/spirit. As a service-to-other person, your future life times depend on the choices you make now, the spiritual and mundane skills you train yourself in, and your fears and beliefs especially in your old age and death, no matter at what age. Your choices will decide the quality and character of your future parents, significant others, and important contacts. Your choices will decide when you will be born next and which evolutionary paths your future journeys will focus on. The choices of worlds are reduced to three evolutionary paths: repeated lifetimes of continual nightmares, mediocre existences, or spiritually focused futures.
If you ever think about your futures or your responsibilities to your past- and future-selves, you would seldom include thoughts about your aging or even your impending death. It is also understandable that anyone interested in aging probably does not pay much attention to how it relates to their own future lives. However, if you are becoming conscious of the fact that you programed your incarnated-self to break away from tradition, from the general consensus, or mass consciousness to create new paradigms and pathways which will in turn be passed to future generations, then you may want to pay more attention to yourself than you pay to others. Your spiritual development is just slightly more important then everything else you are doing in your life. Fifty-one or -two percent for you, forty-nine or -eight percent for others. If you are a reader searching for answers or relief from your fears of growing old or of the dying process you may not have programmed yourself to alter the aging and dying process, but to overcome fear from soul and to learn to focus on and control your thoughts from spirit. Whatever happens, their accumulative thoughts and experiences are gathered as stepping stones for humankind to further their understanding of aging and dying.
If one of your life purposes is to advance human evolution through the way you change what you can about how you age and what you learn from dying consciously, the journey starts with understanding your own fears about aging, dying, and death. This fear can only be found while meditating and contemplating your own aging, the stages you experience during your death, and your death itself. The key is becoming conscious of these processes and how you really feel about them. The process may seem grim and distasteful, but the outcome can be soul freeing, calming, and enlightening experience. It sounds crazy, so why would you?
You came into this world as a blank slate, but you did not leave the soul and spirit worlds as a blank slate. You were conceived, then born fully aware of the worlds you left, but with no concept of what physical life would be like. You were born helpless within your physical body and it took you twenty or more years to learn how to walk, talk, and think. What you did not know is that you spent that twenty or so years learning to totally forget the spiritual worlds you had to die to to enter this life. As human beings become conscious while experiencing the feared developmental stages of aging, old age, dying, and death, they will learn to change what is now automatically and instinctively programmed, expected, and agreed upon rules limiting life span, health, and mental capacity.
If you die to this world without knowing what to expect on the other side, you will be at an evolutionary disadvantage because you will have to spend hundreds of years leaning how to live your life in the soul and spirit worlds. If you have some idea of what you will need to know when you enter the soul and spirit worlds you will. If you do not learn to be aware of your unseens in this life you will not be aware of them in your life between death and rebirth. One of the reasons we incarnate is to learn how and why we believe our own beliefs, suffer the consequences, and eventually learn to listen to our intuition and our other forgotten spiritual abilities along. For most of us, these forgotten abilities are working their way to our conscious awareness right on time just like we programmed them too.
One way to examine aging and death is to start at your own conception and birth. Much of my therapeutic work was spent examining what I call the wombtime, the moment of conception to the moment of birth’s first breath. I noticed that human beings are seldom conceived carrying with them anything about their past lives. It is a general rule that no beliefs, remembrances, or human understanding can accompany them when they slide through the vortex of conception, so they enter as blank slates. If one thought, one bit of a past life were to enter with soul/spirit, that past life would rule this life, because the memories of that life would be stronger than the fetus’ will to develop according to its designs and the fetus would be flooded with the memories, thoughts, and feelings of that past life before it could develop its own. By reliving your conception, wombtime, and birth you may learn why you fear or resist aging and death.
The etheric soul/spirit being, at the moment of conception imbues its essence into the merged seed of mother and father and from that moment there is life, but until soul/spirit chooses to fully enter its creation there is no soul/spirit life. The soul/spirit time span for this choice is from conception to four days after birth. Life and death during this time is totally up to the soul/spirit who chooses life or death as a human being — no one else has the power to do that. It is the soul/spirit which chooses to be aborted, experience still birth, or to die as an infant. Others offer the means which soul/spirit can choose, but it is always soul/spirit which, on levels and for reasons consciousness is unable to comprehend, chooses between life and death every moment of its life.
The body is not the soul/spirit being and the being is not the body; they are as different as the sun and the moon. From the moment of conception, even as the body is being created, it begins to age, while the soul/spirit begins its evolvement at its desired accelerated pace. As the soul/spirit evolves and the physical body it inhabits ages, its consciousness notices changes in its body due to aging. It is then that aging becomes negative and in decreasing increments the opposite of the concept of youth. Once realized, aging can become a problem to fulfilling one’s life purposes which in turn can limit this most important life’s evolution potentials.
As a younger man I viewed the aging potentials from a false sense of probables which worked in theory, but failed miserably on the physical plane. I no longer believe that present human beings are capable of maintaining the focus needed to consciously hold death at bey until a choice to enter the world between death and rebirth is made. I now understand that the present density and evolutionary level of human beings is compelling them to create, invent, and develop the skills and understandings which will eventually become second nature to future generations. An aging person can be healthy or sick, flexible or disabled, conscious or demented. States and conditions are choices not curses. Everything in life is due to your choice. You either create your world or create yourself in someone else’s world. You choose, but most the time your choices are decided by your unconscious mind which to your consciousness has no idea what your present circumstances requires for you to be happy, prosperous, and loved. It is time for us to become conscious and aware, not just present.
I encourage everyone to see what they see, not to attempt seeing what another people see. This is a problem in the metaphysical movement, the students try to mimic that they think a teacher sees, feels, senses, experiences, whatever. The teacher should remind the student that they programed themselves with all the information and knowledge needed for them to see, feel, sense, experience, or whatever they set their personal life purposes to accomplish during their lifetime.
I do not claim expertise on anything, but having been raised as a metaphysician, I live and observe life with a particular interest in the developmental stages of soul and spirit, not as a part of me, but as me. Metaphysically, that means that I am interested in the spiritual evolution of all my lives, past and future because in this moment there is only me, as in your moment there is only you. Given this scenario, if I do not fix what is wrong with me, who will? And who will fix what is wrong with you but you. Our evolution is up to us, we have help from our angels and unseen friends, but life always ends in death and aging is a chosen hallway leading to the only door we must walk through alone. When you think you are getting old you enter aging and if you think that you do not think you are aging, you are already in that hallway. That door, death should be contemplated during a life that is lived to its fullest.
Life offers us so many experiences and if you have chosen to age you have chosen to experience even more. As I understand it, each of us agreed to certain chores to accomplish during our lifetime. Some call these chores life-purposes. These life purposes are actually soul/spirit responsibilities and our individual/spiritual contributions to either the evolution or devolution of humankind. If you live to experience the aging processes which include our physical, emotional, and mental bodies than how you age and choose to die are within your purpose. A very important life purpose of all of those who experience aging is how they change what is expected from general consensus.
