I believe that before we come down to this earth plane we make sacred contracts with people in our soul group. A soul group could be made up of thousands of people. People in your soul group include family, friends, chance meetings, etc. Family members are major life lessons. We come here to spiritually evolve. When we leave this realm, we continue to evolve in the next until we ultimately meet our Godhead, Infinite Spirit, Infinite Intelligence.
A great example of a soul group connection with life lessons to affect the whole is John Walsh and his son, Adam, who was abducted and killed in 1981. Because of that event, John Walsh became a criminal investigator, human rights and victim rights advocate and host/creator of America’s Most Wanted, which ran from 1988-2012. Think of all the people John Walsh helped in those years. None of it would’ve happened if his son wasn’t murdered. Forgiveness is the key.
I don’t watch the news, but I do get snippets on Facebook, doing cardio at the gym, on the streets and from friends. A couple of biggies were the 50 people killed recently at mosques in New Zealand and the 49 killed and 53 wounded at a nightclub in Orlando in 2016. And then there’s the everyday happenings.
The bottom line is hurt people hurt people.
As a collective consciousness (we are one), we must come together to help those who are hurt. Together, we can raise the vibration of this earth plane. We just have to care for one another. I saw the below quotes on Facebook:
“Forgive yourself for not knowing better at the time. Forgive yourself for giving away your power. Forgive yourself for past behaviors. Forgive yourself for the survival patterns and traits you picked up while enduring trauma. Forgive yourself for being who you needed to be.” – The Muse
“Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.” – marianne williamson
Do your part. Blessings of love and peace!
