Your present life is holographic in nature. A single life is to the arc of lifetimes as a drop of water is to the ocean. There is much you can learn about your past and future life selves by developing awareness of the parts of your self that play a dominant role in your current life. At any given time, according to your current needs and life circumstances, an "aspect" of your higher self is informing and advising your present-moment self. Many are not aware when these changeovers in spiritual advisers take place, but they are often aware when a sudden "change of heart" or change in direction takes place in their lives.
If your present consciousness is deeply entrenched with your current identity, these changeovers in spiritual guidance can be dramatic. Any resistance to change slows spiritual progress. Over time, one of two scenarios takes place in a given life. In one scenario, the conscious mind expands its spiritual awareness to embrace these changeovers, which paves the way for spiritual growth and communion. In the second scenario, the conscious mind becomes increasingly resistant to spiritual evolution. In this instance, the soul begins to "phase out" the incarnation by slowly cutting off the flow of life force to the body. Sometimes an individual faced with a life-threatening illness awakens to the need for spiritual growth and begins progressing again. At this point, the soul often chooses to "re-instate" life force to the incarnation. This is when remissions and "miracles" occur.
Embracing "Changeovers" in Spiritual Guidance
To be able to fulfill your spiritual purpose, it's important to set welcome and embrace each new aspect of your "self" you encounter. A new aspects arrives on the horizon of your awareness to guide and assist you to your next stage of growth. You can begin a dialog with each new guiding entity to learn more about it. Often it is possible to learn if this is a past or future self where it resides in time. These advising selves are aspects of your inner spiritual community for your present life, just as your past and future life selves represent the spiritual community of your soul. Each life mirrors all other lifetimes and contains within it the possibility for inner communion and homecoming.
