Do we have contracts for each lifetime? What is our Life Purpose?
10:20 am mst
According to the psychics, we are each on a journey of birth, life experience, death, integrating, and birth
again. When we are on the other side, we plan our upcoming lifetime. Several of the psychics remember negotiating contracts
for this lifetime. Denise Singerline explained:
"Before we come
to Earth we meet with a Council to decide what we want to learn in each lifetime. We form a contract and then we come down
here. We have free will, but all of the major things in the contract are already in place. For example, the contract may state
when a person is going to marry or when they are going to die but, in between, the person has free will. We come down here
and when we pass, we leave our ‘vehicle' behind and our spiritual body is released. Our spirit leaves and goes back
to the Divine.
"After we pass, we meet with a Council which shows
us all of the things which we have done with our life, the good and the bad, and asks what we have learned. Then we have a
choice as to when we want to come down again to learn more."
"When you come down, you have pretty much planned your life out.
When we pass on, we are very busy on the other side planning our next life. That takes a lot of work. People stick to their
outline pretty closely because they have a contract with G-d. They may get off the road for a while, but they get back on
the road. They may get busy sightseeing, but they get back on the road. There's leeway, but people get back to what they
agreed to accomplish."
The contracts state several experiences which
we agree to live through. However, we are free to choose all of the other aspects of our lives. For example, we may have a
contract to experience marriage and raising a family, but we can choose whom we want to marry.
In her book, "The Lightworker's Way" (Hay House, 1997), Doreen Virtue provided a lovely passage about life
purpose which had come to her in a meditation. She wrote:
birth, you and a spiritual council of guides created a life plan tailored to meet your material, spiritual, and karmic needs.
This Divine plan has three elements: a purpose, personal growth lessons, and relationships with other people to support the
"Your purpose is a task you are to do through
your career, volunteer work, or a special project that uses your natural talents and interests to benefit humanity. You plan's
second element entails well-timed life events that teach you about love and help you to shed self-defeating personality traits.
The third element involves pre-birth arrangements you made with certain people who will serve as catalysts for your purpose
and personal growth. These people may function as your family members, co-workers, friends, or acquaintances. Your interactions
with these people simultaneously help them to fulfill their own plan.
"You predestined your plan as a rough outline of what your life would look like, including your purpose, significant
life lessons, and relationships with particular people. Because the plan is only a rough outline, you must choose the finer
details of your plan as you go through life. You are free to ignore the plan completely, but the emotional and societal consequences
of this choice can be devastating."
Later she added:
"In our previous incarnations, many of us didn't fulfill our purposes. During our post-death life reviews, we felt
ashamed that fears and material desires thwarted our plan. This lifetime, we swear to ourselves before birth, we won't
forget our purpose. The trouble is, we design the Divine plan in a "true self" state of peaceful mindfulness. When
we experience ego-based fear during our human lifetime, we can't remember why we came here. If we do remember, fears keep
us from ever starting our plan."
According to Ms. Virtue, people who procrastinate
or forget their plans, feel a deep, low-level anxiety. They unconsciously know that another painful life review awaits them
if they let themselves down again. They feel depressed, as if they're forgetting to do something important. They are forgetting
to fulfill their contract.
Do souls come back to Earth even after they have learned
their lessons? Who are the "volunteers"?
Some souls have completed their
lessons on Earth and are ready to relax on the other side or move on to other realms, but they are asked to return to Earth.
They don't have to come back for their own growth, but they volunteer to return and help other people evolve to the frequency
where they won't have to come back anymore.
These volunteers are also called upon to help
humanity move through times of trouble. Several of the psychics told me that they were here for World War II either because
the traumatic events allowed them to move quickly through their lessons or because they were asked to help humanity move forward
through that difficult period.
Many souls have been asked to return during this lifetime so that
they can help with the upcoming "ascension." This is a particularly precious time on Earth as people strive to leave
war and destruction behind and awaken to a new reality. One of the psychics calls this the "past-life teacher reunion,"
suggesting that all of the teachers who have been on Earth in previous reincarnations are here now to help with humanity's
To'-Ree'-Nee Wolf explained her life contract and her experience of volunteering:
"I came back to be of service. I remember the conversation I had before I was born: I came back to be
of service. I was not an altruistic soul. My last life was during the Holocaust and I did not survive the war. During the
conversation before I was born, I stated that I did not want to do this job. At the table where everything was made of light,
the Beings said, ‘We need you to come back.' I refused to come back. I had a huge chunk of rest due and I said,
‘Get someone else.' They replied, ‘We need everybody.'
"I have what's known as a ‘coming back' clause. I have a series of things which will not happen to me
in this lifetime. It is a list of agreements which were made before I agreed to come back and be of service.
"I have updated the contract a few times during this lifetime. I was on a plane one time
and we hit big turbulence. I knew that as a part of my contract the plane was not going to go down. I was able to re-assure
the other passengers that everything would be fine."
This Project has
been eye-opening for me. To talk with people with this kind of direct experience is "crazy good." I'm guessing
that my personal "purpose" is sharing My Psychic Search. Are you aware of your purpose?

How did people figure out that they were psychic?
11:08 am mst
Of the 26 people
I interviewed, four were born knowing they were psychic, eighteen knew they were different from other children, but had to
figure out that they were psychic, and four were "normal" children who developed their gift later in life.
The four people who came to Earth knowing that they were psychic either remembered their past lives and how the Universe
worked, or remembered making an agreement (before being born) to come to Earth and help people. They had experiences in childhood
which reinforced their "knowing." One psychic told me that when her class learned about World War II in second grade,
she remembered the whole thing and couldn't get out of bed for a week.
Two psychics who were
born knowing about their roles said:
☼ I was born remembering past
lives . . . People often forget things which happened before they were born, but my mother helped me to remember these things.
There is a lineage of psychics in my family . . . The most powerful ability I had as a child was empathy and it wasn't
until I was in fifth grade that I discovered that other people didn't have that. It blew my mind; it really traumatized
me to find out that other people didn't feel the same way that I did. (Erik Von Assman)
☼ I was psychic from childhood. I knew what other people felt and thought and what was going on with them.
My Mom said that I was only about a year old when I began showing empathy. I was very precocious as a child and I think it
is because I remember a lot of my past lives . . . I came in knowing what I had. (Leah Taylor)
Eighteen psychics knew they were different from other children, but had to discover that they had psychic abilities.
What made them different from other children? They saw fairies, astral traveled, talked with spirits, or knew things about
other people which they had no logical way of knowing. At eight years old, one psychic told his mom that a neighbor was pregnant
before there were any indications that this was the case. Also at eight years old, another psychic started seeing people's
auras. At five years of age, a third psychic had an out-of-body experience. When these children talked about their experiences,
they found that other people didn't see the things which they saw. These eighteen children knew that there was something
different about them, but it took a while to put the pieces together.
How did they figure things
out? Of the eighteen people who knew they were different, but had to find out what was happening:
5 people talked to a spiritual teacher who explained their situation;
4 people began researching, studying
and exploring metaphysics on their own and discovered that they had gifts;
1 person had Spirit Guides who explained
what was going on;
5 people either had a near-death experience, a medical issue or an emotional trauma which opened
their abilities; and
3 people had abilities which unfolded naturally as they matured.
are several examples from people who knew they were different as children and later discovered that they were psychic.
People who talked to a psychic and discovered that they were gifted
☼ I knew I had an ability, but I didn't know what it was called until I was 18 and met someone who explained
it to me. When I was younger, my family lived in France and I had déja vu all the time. I always knew exactly where
I was; there were no surprises. It was a very strange feeling. I didn't know that I was different from other people until
they looked at me like I had two heads and I thought maybe they didn't know what I knew.
When I was 18, I moved to Nebraska and met a palm reader. She looked at my hand and said, "You should be reading
mine!" Then she looked in my eyes and said, "I've been waiting a long time to meet you." She had been told
that I was coming to her. She explained to me what I am and she taught me everything she knew about hands. Then, I taught
her what I knew. The hands would open up and tell stories. She became a mentor for me. I talked to her quite a bit and we
became very good friends. (Cecilia Nemmers)
I was born this way and I thought everyone was like me. As I grew older, I realized that other people were not like me and
that some people were afraid of me when I told them things. I started keeping things to myself. As a child, I didn't have
anyone to tell me what was going on.
I was born with sight and I always
knew what people were thinking and feeling. I could walk into a room and feel the energy. As a child, I had spirits come to
me every night and stand at the edge of my bed. I would wake up in the middle of the night in the process of astral traveling,
but I didn't know what it was. I felt like I was sinking down into the bed as my spirit was lifting. As I woke up in the
middle of it, I would see a spirit standing in the doorway beckoning me to follow.
I met my first spiritual teacher when I was 17. I went to a psychic fair and the minute I sat down in front of one
of the psychics she said, "You have very strong psychic powers and you are afraid of them. I could teach you how to use
them to heal others and to help them in their lives." I started crying as I realized that I was not alone. I had never
met anyone else like me. I had always felt so alone and it had been scarey. I had needed to keep things hidden. I started
taking her meditation classes. (Denise Singerline)
People who researched,
studied, and discovered they were psychic
☼ I have used psychic
abilities most of my life, but I didn't know what they were. I probably didn't realize what it was until high school.
That's when I started dabbling in it to see, but it wasn't until later that I realized that this wasn't normal.
After my first husband passed away, I wanted to know why, and no one could give me the answer. I went to someone
who did an astrological reading and I started taking lessons. Then I started learning about numerology and it was like a glove;
it just fit. I spent my first couple of years dealing with astrology, then I fell in love with numerology, so I do several
things. As far as mentoring the "abilities," I never really thought of them as abilities, I just thought of them
as "one of those things." (Patricia Kirkman)
experienced a trauma which opened their gifts
☼ When I was about
20 years old, I slipped into an unconscious state. Five and a half weeks later, I woke up. I was pronounced dead three times
and I came back three times. There was no medical reason, no accident, which caused this event. When I woke up, I was fine.
I just felt like I had lost time.
Several years later, I started to
become spiritually aware. My interests, curiosity and knowledge started to come on-line. At that point, I started on the path
of spiritual exploration.
I was introduced to a woman who was on the
cutting edge in the spiritual world. She was a channel of Metatron [an angel]. I went to see her, not really knowing what
a channel was, and she said, "I have been expecting you. Where have you been? You are behind schedule." I was surprised
and I had no idea what she was talking about. She did a reading for me and introduced me to new concepts, such as "light
body" and "ascension." I was reeling after that discussion as all of the information tried to settle in.
Three or four months later, I followed Spirit and went to northern CA for a three-day intensive workshop on etheric
surgery with a woman named Tachi-Ren. Someone told me about it and I just went. That weekend, she activated me, bringing in
my knowledge and wisdom about my work. I started to remember things. It was a "remembering" from the part of me
which was not in physical form. I remembered my Higher Consciousness, what I came here to do, and what my work was all about.
That is where it all began. (Raquel Spencer)
The State of Arizona removed my daughter from my care and sent her to live with my parents. This created great trauma in my
life and the trauma brought forward my abilities as a Medium. I started hearing things I had never heard before from people
who had crossed over. I started smelling aromas and hearing things. It was an overload. I had to learn how to control it and
work with it. (Marianne Patyk)
People who had abilities which unfolded as they
☼ Now that I know, I can look back and
see that I had abilities as long as I can remember. I didn't think of it that way at the time. As a child, I spent a lot
of time alone. I knew things. I thought that everybody felt like this.
I was around 10 years old, I heard my mother calling me in her unique accent. I asked her what she wanted and she told me
that she had not been calling me. Turns out it was my Grandmother Virginia calling my name. She had lived in our house and
had recently passed. At the time, I didn't quite figure it out.
I was in college, I was sitting in a stairwell and I was very upset about things. I received a huge, overwhelming message
that I was holding back because I didn't want to be a big psychic in the limelight. I had insecurities. It was like: what
if I really was the person I was here to be? It was too much for me to grasp; I was hiding from it. I get goose bumps even
saying it. I remember sitting in that stairwell, crying, and thinking, "I have all of this stuff to do for the planet!"
I wasn't ready to do it. (Gigi Sample)
The remaining four
people had normal childhoods They didn't know they were gifted as children. They developed their abilities as teens or
adults. One of these people had a near-death experience which opened her abilities and, afterwards, she began studying
spirituality. The other three explored spirituality on their own. They played with Ouija boards or Tarot cards, or took classes,
and were able to develop their skills.
One person who had a normal childhood and whose gifts
opened later in life said:
☼ I figured it out on my own. The more
I learned about anything metaphysical, the more I understood the possibilities. In 1970, I started a study group in Wisconsin
to understand metaphysics and I had a very powerful experience during an automatic writing session. We were all sitting in
my studio and the teacher explained what automatic writing was. I had just returned from a trip to Sedona and had found out
that the mother of a good friend of mine had passed away while I was gone. The woman who had passed away was named Hannah.
In the past, every time I had had lunch with Hannah she had said, "Thank you for being my friend." In addition,
whenever she talked about her son she would say, "Oh, Ron will be Ron." Back to the automatic writing session. We
did a guided meditation and we each had a pen and paper. The teacher said that if nothing was happening, just to write our
names. I started to write my name and my arm started shaking. I opened my eyes in disbelief and I wrote, "Sad."
I wasn't crying, but suddenly tears were running out of my eyes. Then I wrote, "Thank you for being my friend,"
and I realized it was Hannah. My hand moved down the paper and my hand wrote, "Ron will be . . . " I put the pen
down and I was completely freaked out. It was the first time, I had had that kind of a mind-boggling experience. That was
when I realized that there was a lot out there which I didn't understand and it increased my interest in finding out more.

Are we ready for 2012?
1:11 pm mst
2012 is coming. No one knows exactly what
it will be like or what will happen, but certain people have had glimpses of the future. I have spoken with many spiritual
people about the upcoming opportunities for growth which will be presented in 2012.
at the Writer's Conference in San Diego, I met Matthew Pallamary. He is an author and a teacher who has been on a
shamanistic path for many years. Matthew has experimented extensively with Amazonian plants and has had mystical experiences.
In the course of our conversation, I asked Matthew what he thought might happen in 2012. His answer was that while he was
not certain of the particular events, he knew how to approach the changes.
Matthew feels that
this time of change is bringing our lessons to us in faster and faster cycles. We are manifesting the lessons we need to learn.
Either we understand the lessons and move forward, or we don't. The key is integrity. We need to be solid in our core
values and we also need to be flexible. This allows us to deal with whatever comes our way.
to Matthew, the Universe always brings people back to balance. People face experiences which either bring them back to integrity
or they continue to live in denial. If they live in denial, their lives worsen.
believes that we all need to be prepared for the future. Interestingly, when he works with Amazonian plants, he can go through
an experience on a psychic level before it actually happens. Later, when the event occurs, he has already been through it
so he knows how to handle it.
While Matthew doesn't know exactly what the next few years
will hold, his strategy for dealing with the future is to live in integrity. He observes that he can't change anything
in the world around him as it is occurring, but he has complete control over how he reacts to it. He commented:
"To me, the difference between awareness and lack of awareness is the difference between reacting and
acting. If you lack awareness, you react. You follow the same pattern, you do the same things, you have the same trigger
points. If you are aware, you no longer react. You act. You learn to be accountable within yourself. This is all Zen, this
is the Tao. You learn to be flexible so that no matter what goes on around you, you react in a different way and the more
you learn to do that, the different kinds of energies you attract to yourself . . . Outer reality changes because you have
changed on the inside. You no longer draw those other energies to yourself. You draw newer and different energies and people
to yourself. A higher vibration. A higher level of awareness."
that 2012 will provide a unique opportunity. Planetary alignments are going to shift. The energetics are going to be in a
particular position and this is going to provide a great opportunity to make a leap forward in consciousness.
thoughts are very consistent with the ideas shared by other people who I have interviewed. In fact, Delphina Nova remarked:
"I am not focused on the December 21, 2012 Mayan prophecies because not all indigenous prophecies point to
2012. We are at this point where we have a choice about how we are going to conduct our lives, how we are going to treat each
other, and how we are going to take care of the environment. I believe that in the blink of an eye we will choose love. It
is up to us. How we treat ourselves and the world around us is what we are going to receive. The person in one house may be
living in hell, and the person next door may be living in love. I believe we can be living in a pile of dung somewhere and
still be living in complete bliss. You can see the person in front of you as your enemy, as separate from you, or as your
Later in our discussion she added:
control what is going to happen in the future, all I can do is take care of my own inner environment. If I am in a space of
love, no matter what is happening around me, I am not going to be affected. If there is chaos, or a nuclear attack on Tucson,
it won't affect me if I am in the right spiritual space. Am I going to wait until that happens, or am I going to be here
in a place of love; nourishing my relationships with G-d and my family? Whatever happens, happens. On my way out, I want to
make sure I am in the place of being vulnerable which allows G-d in."
need to find the quiet place within ourselves which assists us in facing challenges in a straightforward manner. We need to
connect to our own personal knowledge.

"Spirit Matters." If you are interested in Matthew's thoughts or his work, you can check out his website
