Soul purpose in Ascension
We have discussed life purpose on Yes to Me, but the “soul purpose” discussed in this book REMEMBERING YOUR SOUL PURPOSE: A Part of Ascension – SECOND EDITION is a bit different. Karen Bishop, perhaps the best known authority on Ascension, helps us excavate our special role in Ascension, the Shift of the Ages we are going through. She maintains we are born on Earth at this time to make a unique contribution to this transition.
Earth is ascending and so are us as individuals
Ascension is a process. More and more people are coming to my Akashic Record Reading service because they read about the Ascension soul shift and recognize they are experiencing the same changes. As I wrote in that article, the soul shifts are happening partly because each of us have done our spiritual development and reached a certain point of spiritual growth, and partly because of the planetary shift that is affecting all of us.
(Just to be clear – Karen Bishop does not write about soul shifts. What I have to say about Ascension soul shift is entirely based on my personal experience and my observation at my practice. She does writes about significant changes a person goes through in Ascension in her another book The Ascension Primer, which I think are symptoms of Ascension soul shifts, but she does not use this term. And I strongly recommend this book along with REMEMBERING YOUR SOUL PURPOSE: A Part of Ascension.)
Ascension may also be a big fundamental change waiting for us. Perhaps when the individual changes reach the critical mass, something wonderful happens to Earth and to us. Maybe that is expected to happen in 2012. I don’t know for sure, but I’m hopeful.
What is your unique contribution to Ascension?
After we complete our learning of our own life lessons, life becomes about being. Your purpose is to be the authentic YOU and to express your natural spiritual gifts you have. This is immediately the best service you can ever make to humanity.
Karen Bishop’s book helps you narrow down exactly what this gift is and how it helps Ascension.
The book contains a lot of writing assignments and I did them all. I didn’t like her application of numerology (I mean, when I can read the Akashic Records into details, why would I need to categorize stuffs into 9 groups?), but I like everything else.
Your geographical home on Earth
One of the assignment I found interesting is about the geographical area we are drawn to. As I often write on this blog, I packed up and moved myself from Nashville, Tennessee to Portland, Oregon one and a half years ago after hearing the message in my meditation. At that time, I had never visited the Northwest. And the message was clear – it’s not Seattle, it’s not San Francisco, it’s Portland, Oregon. And while I love living here, I didn’t know why I had to come here.
Karen Bishop says each geographic area has its unique energy, much like each person has unique energy. And we are drawn to the area that resonates with our own energy. This accelerates our own spiritual evolution.
The mild, moist, and rather cool climate here is so nurturing to me. I just couldn’t handle the heat in Tennessee. And the cedar trees, so abundant in this area, remind me of integrity and solid growth with their straight vertical growth pointing to the sky. I love the hills around here that provide perspective, but not with too sharp harsh angles.
Does where you live resonate with who you are?
The New World after Ascension
I love the part where she talks about “Your One Hat”. She says that, in the New World after Ascension, each one of us will be wearing one hat, doing the one thing that we love to do and do so well naturally. There will be no obligation to do what is not ours to do – that will be done by someone who loves to do it. She writes:
“But for this particular time of creating the New World, you came with one gift and talent that was bigger and brighter than the others. Although you are capable of many things, this time that is now arriving will support you in contributing one very special thing, or in other words, wearing one very special hat. It is the hat that is left when you find yourself tired of wearing so many. It is the hat that you continually wear and come back to and the hat that fits the best and gives you the most comfort. It is the hat that you CANNOT not wear. It always seems to fall out of the closet and land on your head, time after time.”
That is your soul’s purpose in the New World.
My purpose in Ascension
My role and contribution is to raise the awareness through my writing. My Akashic Record Reading is helpful, too, but my real ambition is to reach a wider audience through my writing so that I can assist more people. I want to be published on the issue of Ascension and Akashic Records.
This is how I see the progress of Ascension: The very first runners have passed. However, not many people even noticed them. In a TV broadcast of a marathon, we know who is running first, but in a real life, the very first runners were so far off, hardly anyone noticed. They probably looked like they were straying. Let’s call these first wavers Group A, although they are so spread out they don’t look like a group.
Then Group B is coming. Even though it’s still a small fraction of the whole population, now it’s starting to look like a group, and we are becoming increasingly aware that there is a change going on. I’m in Group B, hopefully leading Group B.
My role is to pick the pieces of road signs Group A has left and make sense of them so that the rest of us can utilize them. I let the rest of Group B runners that we are on the right track and we want to keep going. I write and talk about these road signs and our progress.
My Akashic Record Reading service in Ascension
Sometimes members of Group B comes to me personally for assistance. Remember, although I call it Group B, it’s still a small group spread out pretty thin here and there. Members often wonder what the heck is going on around them and to themselves – why are they running, while most others they know seem to be sitting where they are?
This is my Akashic Record Reading service. While I still do plenty of past life readings, more and more readings these days are about Ascension soul shift. Clients need to know what happened to them and need help for complete transition.
Who are in Group C? It’s the broader population that are waking up. The line between Group B and C is fuzzy and fluid. When I have the honor to assist a person with my Akashic Record Reading, I consider Group B to be those who have had the Ascension soul shift and Group C to be those who are heading toward it.
Group C are those who are interested in personal and spiritual development, starting to run the marathon, but not quite up to the speed yet. The leading part of Group C can see Group B and wonder how they can speed up like them. Then they notice they may be carrying invisible baggage – like from their past lives. So they seek out my service of Akashic Record Reading to clear the baggage and jump start.
We all win when we join the Ascension movement
Now although I’m using the analogy of marathon runners for visual image, please note this is NOT a race. The objective is not about being the first, or to be in the first group. The objective is to run, to join the movement of Ascension, in your own way. Further, we all win when we reach a critical mass and usher in the New World.
There are a lot of people who haven’t started running yet. We want to inspire them to join. Because it’s actually so much fun to run. And the more people join the running, the better – we increase our momentum as lightworkers.
What are darkworkers doing? Some are discouraging people from joining the marathon. Some are hanging around thinking they can jump onto someone’s back. I don’t know what happens to them. That is outside my area.
Why it’s critical to raise the awareness
Most of us didn’t recognize the Group A runners as runners when they were passing. Because we didn’t have the awareness of the marathon going on. This is why I keep writing about Ascension. To raise the awareness. Experiencing something without awareness is like not experiencing.
Raising the awareness is about increasing Light. When Light increases, we notice the old non-working part of the existing system, both in the outwardly environment and in our own thinking and beliefs. So raising the awareness involves washing away this old part, such as the limiting beliefs and related fear. Just like real rain, this “let it rain and wash it away” process can be inconvenient and painful at the time. But just like the rain, it is actually refreshing and nurturing. It is an aspect of Love.
What comes so natural to you?
Writing is so natural to me. It doesn’t matter English is my second language. (Yeah, I keep making singular / plural errors, please correct them. I can’t let my fear of grammatical errors stop me. I need to go ahead and say what I have to say before I miss my meal again.) I’m writing when I have a bit of spare time. And then I look at the clock and wonder how several hours have passed. I never run out of material – I just can’t keep up with all the ideas that need to be written. They just well up in me.
Some say I am channeling when I write. I don’t know. This is how I always wrote. How do I know the difference between my own idea and the channeled idea? All I know is there are more and more to write.
As Karen Bishop says, we make out best and biggest contribution when we do this one thing that is so natural to us. I know this is true, and I also know this would feel paradoxical in this effort and action oriented world. Less effort. No pushing hard. Just be yourself – doing feels hardly doing because it’s so natural. It’s a natural extension of your being.
You have something that is natural to you. What is it? Are you letting yourself do it?
And here is my personal vision – when I complete this mission to raise awareness, to increase the vibration of many individuals and therefore contribute to the increasing vibration of Earth, I will be leaving for a new Universe, my new frontier, as the bird of Light.
