Soul Groups

April 7, 2015

Coincidence? Déjà vu? Reincarnation? I am sure each of us has had the all too familiar feeling that we have been here before. We seem to know how a series of events will exactly play out, before it has even taken place. Or we might feel as if we know a person extremely well, even if we only met them  five minutes ago. We instantly like them, we understand and know without knowing.

I do not believe that anything happens by mere coincidence, because what happens to us has already been written and synchronized. Last night I watched the epic biblical drama The Ten Commandments and I have always loved the part where Yul Brynner, who plays Pharaoh Rameses, quotes: “So it is written, so it shall be done.” This got my mental wheels turning more in-depth on what he stated and how valid the remark is. Things that are written tend to be true, like the Torah, Quran and the Bible. Much of what is written or decreed has come true or it will come to pass it seems, once it is penned to paper. There is a strong power in writing a thing down and then watching your very words bring it to pass, depending on the level of one’s faith, of course. In short, I believe this is what the creator did in each of our lives when our initial stage was set for us to act out our parts in this thing we call life. More importantly, I believe that we come from soul groups created by the creator, almost like teams so to speak. The teams are the same in working towards a common goal but different in the sense that each team has a different mission, with different personalities. Some of us fulfill our missions the first time around and therefore we don’t need to come back a second or third time to get our karma right. Consider yourself blessed if you can accomplish that!

Several of us keep coming back, and this is why we déjà vu so frequently. We need to get our mission’s karma correct before we are allowed to advance to the next level. We might wonder why we feel such a pull to another person, like a best friend, one parent over another, a total stranger that we instantly connect with, and even that one of kind partner we just know is our soul mate regardless of astrological compatibility. I have people like this in my life and I know without a doubt, they are from my original soul group. I have learned to accept this and not question it any more.  We mesh, we vibe, we get it, we intuit with one mind. The creator no doubt creates us, but I think it might be the free will He gives us in letting us choose our own soul group – way before conception even takes place.
