Both Dave and I really appreciate when we recieve questions from people we meet during events, lectures or when meeting people one-on-one during private sessions. We will begin to share some Q&A’s, so feel free to send in any questions you might have and we will try to respond to the best of our abillity. No names or personal information will be revealed. This email came a while ago from a woman reading our second book – The Spiritual Design, Wave 2. The questions are answered by Dave.
Q. The first question is from page 197 where Dave is talking about the Creator's plan and mentions that those who don't live up to their potential will be restricted from coming here, as they will not be compatible with the new energies. Can you elaborate on this? I am wondering what will be other choices for these souls after returning to their spiritual homes but yet further incarnations are required or desired. Where will they go to work out the lessons in their coat of karma? Also, how does one know if they are living or reaching their potential?
D. Based on what the spirits have told us about the changes to the human body and the way our soul will express itself, the world will be a much more harmonious place to incarnate in the not-so-distant future. There are some 8 billion people on the planet, representing (probably) a similar number of souls, considering that a soul occupying two bodies simultaneously is not that common.
They have also said that the population will decrease as we move forward in time, so the available opportunities for bodies will diminish. However, as you correctly pointed out, each soul is responsible for the coat of karma they leave on this plane, so all will have to come back and begin to work through their issues at some "time" in the future. But if the Creator has a goal of installing a race of humans that are not so destructive, then it seems reasonable that future bodies will be preferentially offered to those souls who are more experienced. There are other places (within this fish tank) where souls can go to learn and experience somewhat similar elementary school situations, but eventually, all souls will have to cycle through Earth and address their coat of karma, unless it is specifically removed by the Councils.
Our potential is to be a perfect reflection of our spirit, but how realistic is that in a human body? No matter what job or situation we find ourselves in, the important part is our inner dialogue, how we feel and think about the life we have. We fight against life all too often, but what if we are living the life we chose before coming down here? The spirits have told us that neither Christine nor I had very much latitude during our lives, but yet much of my life was very uninspiring. We live day-by-day making decisions that we often deem inconsequential, but NDE's often describe that these little things we do have the most spiritual value. I personally feel that when it's time to make a change in your life, you will know it because your higher self and your spirit guides are pushing you into action, which you may have no option but to act upon (i.e. - job changes, etc.). If someone doesn't feel a forceful compulsion to do something, then why not relax and enjoy life? The soul will manifest a change if one is required.
Q. Another question is regarding the conversation where Ophelia mentions a "picture" she gives Christine about meditating with plants on page 209. Can you elaborate on this sentence
D. I have not actually done the practice Ophelia recommended, yet, I never thought of a houseplant as any different than one out in nature. It still has the same spiritual essence from the Master Mind, and since it lives with you it actually shares a closer bond than one in nature. You should read a book called "The Secret Life of Plants" by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Boyd, because it has been proven that plants have an awareness that humans, in general, completely misunderstand. So I would absolutely encourage you to try the exercise with a well-tended houseplant.
Q. The last question I have is not in the book but what is the meaning of a person having very disturbing dreams, almost to the point of violent or abusive dreams, from either someone living or from someone who is dead? Do the dreams indicate something? Is it fear or regret over occurrence in one's life? Is it a form of communication with me?
D. I don't feel overly qualified to discuss dream interpretation, but I will say that dreams come from two sources, one being the physical vehicle and the other being soul communication. The problem is that the soul communication is sub-conscious and has to be filtered through the mind before it can be registered. When I was younger, I occasionally had frightening dreams, but very seldom do now, but I am aware that certain things I eat or take will affect the dream state. Melatonin and magnessium, for example, both cause me to have a lot of bizarre dreams, but I know that before I go to bed. Bob once said that any dreams that are fear-based have an origin in the mind and the physical, but that doesn't mean they are entirely without a spiritual component. If you have unresolved or troublesome issues with the individuals in question, the dream may be given as a suggestion to evaluate your feelings about them or your relationship to the situation the dream suggests. Edgar Cayce used to tell people that everyone in the dream was a different aspect of themselves, and when seen in this way it is always a more personal message than if viewed as an external presence. That is not to say that we can't pick up telepathic messages sent by others towards us through the fourth dimension, because we most certainly do. I wish I could offer more assistance. I have always tried to rely on my own instincts when it comes to analyzing dreams, because your "feeling" about what a dream means is usually the best tool.
We appreciate your questions. Our spirit friend Bob would say you are like a star!
