Consciousness is the state of awareness of internal or external existence. According to Max Velmans and Susan Schneider, “Anything that we are aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives.”
The consciousness evolution journey is a continuous process that implies progressing towards a higher state of awareness to see the world and oneself more and more objectively. The more we truly know ourselves via inner work, the better we can perceive others and the clearer we also see the world and reality as it is. The soul’s journey is a process of evolving, growing in consciousness, steadily progressing through different levels or stages of awareness.
Have you ever wondered why you exist in this Planet?
Have you wondered about your soul’s level of enlightenment?
Every Soul journey is unique and your ability to discover, for yourself, the true path for this incarnation, may take some time to uncover. However, be reassured that the wisdom you are seeking is available. It is locked within yourself.
The philosopher Plato describes how a Soul makes various choices before incarnation. This process is called the Soul Contract. This Contract is a spiritual code, just as our DNA is a physiological code. Plato also describes how, in the process of being born and during our childhood, we normally forget what these choices were. It is our mission in life to remember our Soul Contract in order to realising our potential. If our actions and lifetime choices do not respect the terms of this contract, then these are very likely to lead towards what we see as “negative situations” or general feelings of dissatisfaction. The balance or imbalance in light during the consciousness evolution journey will manifests differently for each individual based on their unique karmic lessons.
So how do we evolve in consciousness?
Through taking on challenging experiences in physical form. These cause us to make important, “soul-searching” choices and call upon us to discover our higher self.
When choosing to go with the evolutionary lessons that are being presented to us, we are given the opportunity to lessen distress, we are ultimately being given the space to choose how we respond, and the space to choose the energy interaction around the experience — the energy that we contribute towards it, and the energy that we will also take.
We are multi dimensional beings and everything we have ever set in motion via action, thinking, agreements and beliefs in this or past lives are coming back around at some point to experience our own creation as part of the learning process in this 3D school called life. The universe is continuously striving and pushing us towards harmony.
However, we can’t grow in consciousness without an open and free mind. As soon as we close our minds, because of religious dogma, fundamentalism or an enslaved sense of self (a mind that is enslaved to a guru, a sect, a god or deity) we stop evolving. We need to learn to recognise and appreciate our own mind’s great potential for change and development.
Our souls communicate with us through symbols, metaphors, synchronicity, intuition, and from a myriad of unexpected encounters with other sentient beings when we least expect it. This is why meditation and other forms of quieting our minds or enhanced listening are so important to develop, so we can hear and recognise these subtle modes of communication that are coming from our souls.
Meditation allows us to dive deep into our higher self and reconnect with our origin, our ‘genesis’, our beginning. It brings healing, blessings and abundance The more you meditate, the more intense your relationship with your higher self will grow. This will be like being in love.
Then you will be able to share this love with all the other souls you will meet.
