With Halloween just around the corner, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press (10-27-2011) elaborating on the differences in the type of candy we consume and pass out for Halloween, I pause to reflect on the content of KS95 radio station’s morning program about paranormal and ghost activity. All week, KS95 has had viewers call in about real life ghost stories and other paranormal activity, many of which seem startlingly real.
Most of us have heard or read about stories involving ghosts, and many of us have probably just as easily dismissed these stories as fabrications. I believe we are eternal souls having an “earth experience.” It seems that sometimes, after a traumatic or violent death or sudden death leaving much unfinished business when we pass over to the other side, a soul may not fully pass over and integrate into the in between life state, but rather will choose to stay connected to the earth plane.
We plan our life on earth before we reincarnate. We choose, with the help of guides and wise souls who assist us, a sort of rough draft of our life before we are born. In so doing, we plan lessons we intend to integrate within, people we will love, whom we will have relationships with, and often what difficulties will appear in our life. Our purpose in our life is to learn lessons and grow closer to merging and becoming one with God. God is absolute love and each life brings us closer to merging with God. By learning each emotion, each lesson, each experience, we become more complete and are able to complete our Earthly existence.
When a soul chooses to stay connected to the earth plane, rather than merging within the typical between life statuses, they become what we on earth define as ghosts. These souls are actually stuck or stagnating, not willing to move on to the next stage of their existence, not willing to grow, but rather steadfastly holding on to their past. The stories can send chills and frighten us, but truly they are simply souls that have not moved on.
Sometimes we see living individuals hanging on to the past, only reliving and staying stuck in their “glory” days. An example is a high school athlete, long since past his prime, only reminiscing and reliving a game, or season. At each juncture of our existence, we have the opportunity to grow, evolve, and learn, or stagnate, clinging to a certain time or phase of our existence. When we can become comfortable with change, comfortable with uncertainty and growth, we evolve and flow smoothly in our life, between lives, and in future lives.
It seems that staying present, accepting change and uncertainty, not only benefits us in our life, but benefits our soul in it’s growth in all of its phases.
