Soul Shifting And the Light Ascension Of Maybe 2012

January 24, 2009 by  

As I wrote in this post, I just went through a major internal change that brought a series of external changes in my life.  Several readers responded, with comments and emails, that they are experiencing something similar.

In this post, I’ll explain what I know at this time about this shift.  Honestly, I do not know or understand everything about this – this is something totally new to this world, and I am learning as I go.  Still I guess it is more beneficial for the highest good of all to share what I know now rather than withhold it.

(Note: If you are new to spirituality, or if you are here for more “practical” tips of personal development or entrepreneurship, this post may not be for you.  I will be writing more of those posts, so don’t unsubscribe – just stay put, thank you ^_^)

The symptoms of the shift

1. You feel like a new person is in your body. And the shift is pretty abrupt.
I shared the kind of changes I’ve been through in my eating habits, the way I like to dress and live, and my new sense of joy and gratitude in that post.  Please note that article was meant to be a personal sharing, not a comprehensive list of changes you may experience.  Your changes may be different – you may feel the urge to take different direction in your career or personal life, or you may have a spiritual awakening.

The point is you sense changes from within.  It’s not something your mind chose and posed on yourself. On the contrary, your mind is most likely resisting the changes.  I embraced my shift quickly, but you may be reasoning things out like, “Well . . . but I am responsible to keep doing this. . .”  “This is how I always have been.  I’m not sure if I’d like to change.  I am (insert your age here).”  And yet, the change is there pushing you from within.

You may notice some changes in your body and physical health, too.  For example, if I try to eat meat now, my stomach will reject it.  I’ve also noticed difference in my sleep pattern.

2. Additionally, you may feel annoyed, frustrated, and stuck.
You are probably reasoning this as the discomfort of your mind with these changes, but there is a deeper reason. . .

What is soul shifting?

We have the soul – more accurately, we are spiritual beings in physical bodies.  Typically, you have one soul and live with it for life.  The soul defines the basic makeup of who you are, your strengths and challenges on the soul level, and the way you are growing spiritually.

When you reach a certain point in your spiritual evolution, however, your soul shifts. (Note: Actually, there are other kinds of soul shifts, which are explained into details in the linked post.)

Let me explain by analogy.  Have you been to a tall tower building in which you need to change the elevator to go to the higher levels?  The elevator you can take at the ground level only takes you to a certain floor, and then you must get off and switch to another elevator that takes you to higher level floors.

Same thing seems to be happening with our spiritual evolution.  Some of us are getting to the point where our original soul has done its work.  It’s been good, but you are done with it.  So you switch to the new soul.  This is, of course, a positive move.

Because the soul defines who you are, you sense a shift from within.  You are, quite literally, a new person when you go through the soul shift.

The potential issues of this soul shifting

Although this soul shift is a good move, there are a few points things can go awry. First, the previous soul could get stuck and still be attached to your body.  This is very annoying to the new soul.  We need to send the first soul that has done its job to “the other side”.

If you sense this may be happening to you, please consider getting my Akashic Record Reading.  Seriously.  You know I don’t usually promote my service like this on this blog, and I am doing so now for a reason – this is a big deal that you definitely benefit from professional assistance.

The new soul is typically a fresh soul that has never been incarnated in the physical body.  I don’t know if this is the rule, but this is what I’ve been observing.  I guess there must be a big pool of souls that have been watching this physical plane on Earth for eons of time but never incarnated.

Because it is such a fresh, clean soul, it can be a target of attack from the negative forces.  This is another thing I check and clear in my reading.

The relationship of the first and second souls

So far, I have read several cases of this kind of soul shift, including myself.  I know this is way too few to draw any significant generalization.  I still think it may be worth to share the pattern I’ve seen.

It seems there is a certain relationship, an agreement, between the first soul and the second soul.  The second soul chose the first soul to go in first, and it’s been watching your life.  The second soul is usually very similar to the first soul in terms of soul’s origination group and training.  (If you haven’t had my Akashic Record Reading, you may be going “Huh?  What is soul’s origination group and training?”  I touched this topic in my post on life purpose – please read the comments, too)

So, while you are a new person when this soul shift happens to you, the confusion is minimal.  Good grief.

The planetary level shift and your soul shifting

Our Earth is going through a major shift.  I am not talking about the superficial changes, although many of the changes in people’s way of thinking, feeling, and behaving are stimulated by this big planetary shift.  I don’t know exactly what this big shift is about and what the world will be like when the shift is complete.  I don’t think anyone really knows.  I do sense it will be a completely new world.

Our individual soul shifting is stimulated by this big planetary shift.  Let me use another analogy.  Each of us have been pushing our boats on the beach.  This is our personal and spiritual development effort.  Now the big tide is coming, and some of the boats that have been pushed far enough are suddenly floating.  From here on, it’s a completely different game.  We, who have been through the soul shifting, are sailing.

Is this some kind of elitist statement?  I don’t think so.  We have done our work.  And by showing others how much fun we are having once our boats are floating on the water, we encourage them to push their boats further, and they may soon join us in sailing.

So let’s embrace this grace of the big shift. And look around to find others who have also started sailing.  Those with enhanced awareness of their spiritual nature, with fresh sense of love, freedom, and abundance.

Light Ascension and year 2012

The planetary shift is called Light Ascension, or just Ascension.  Our individual spiritual evolution, including the soul shifting, is also called Ascension.  Our soul’s vibration rate is ascending (increasing).

Is this related to year 2012?  Does the Earth ascend in 2012?  I don’t know. My spirit guides tell me there will be a significant change in 2012, but not everyone will experience it. Which makes sense to me.  I don’t think everyone is ready for this – many people haven’t even started pushing their boats.  Will the tide be big enough to float even those boats sitting in the far back?

Still there will be a huge shift in or around 2012.  In fact, the shift has been going on already, as we’ve been discussing in this post.  I think the planetary shift is coming like the exponential function.  It started long ago, but in the beginning, the change was so gradual and minimal that most people didn’t notice.  Then some sensitive and highly conscious people noticed, but most people ignored it.

Like in exponential function, however, there comes a time when the change becomes big, and from there, it keeps growing rapidly.  Now it’s hard to ignore.  It doesn’t take years of full time discipline to notice there is something going on, and so we, the “ordinary” people (by that I mean pretty much everyone who is not Dalai Lama) have the urge to do something – be it meditation or yoga or psychic reading and clearing.

Ascension and our concept of time

Although I don’t really know what is going on, I’ll take one step further and dare to say the Ascension has something to do with time.

In this three dimensional world, time flows one-way in a linear mode.  There is no time like that on the spiritual plane, however.  So retro-causality is possible there, and I have observed it.  For example, when a person orders my reading and clearing, they may experience the change even before I actually do the work – provided they are serious about taking it.  The spirit knows they will accept the clearing, so they do it, and it works in all ways of time.

If the Earth is ascending to the fourth dimension, time as we know it now will change.  Does this mean we can move through time freely back and forth?  How will that look like?  I don’t know.  But this is another reason I think that not everyone is ready for this.

Think about it.  If you can move back to the past, what would you be doing?  Are you going back to the time that you think you made a mistake and fix it?  That is what many people would be doing, and so they would be forever stuck in the past.  This is obviously no good.  One-way flow of time helps us to move on and keep learning our lessons.  It is designed this way for a good reason.

But what if you could take time travel just like any spacial travel?  Let’s say you are done with learning your life lessons, you have accepted everything without judgment, so you have no intention to go back and redo your past.  You just go to any point of time because you want to, like you go to places you want to go.

A possibility.  Again I don’t really know.

Ascension to Lightbodies

I have a few more things to say about Ascension, mainly about what may happen to our physical body afterward.  In short, we will have a new way of existence called Lightbodies.

I need more time to discuss this topic of Lightbodies, however.  For one, I really don’t know much about it.  Also, I’m concerned it may scare some people.  I myself am excited about this option and willing to learn more about it, but I also know those who are still so tightly attached to their body may be scared.

I’d love to hear what you think about this post – please leave your comment. Thank you.  (Photo by Edward B.)

Update: This topic of Ascension and soul shifting is something quite new to this planet and I’ll be writing more I have written more about it.  Please check the category Ascension if you are interested to read more. Also, I’m no longer responding to the comments to this specific post because I think I have answered to them by the various posts I have written later in this Ascension category. You are still welcome to leave your message and carry on the discussion.  Thank you.

    Hi, Akemi. This is the first I’ve heard of first and second souls. I’m not sure what to make of it, and will ponder the concept. I have heard about 2012 being significant, but hadn’t looked into it to learn why. Thanks for mentioning both here.

    Much of what you say resonates with me. (And, LOL, it’s the same for me with the meat and sleep and even, as you mentioned in the last post, the re-embracing of feminine clothing). Yes, I’m aware of massive amounts of inner growth, clearing and cleaning and rapid evolution, and I welcome it—OH! I welcome it! …because I know that no matter how we talk about it or describe it or what we relate it to, it’s all personal growth (which contributes to our global community’s growth) and that is just plain good stuff! ;)

    And, yes, I have been aware that my own experiences have been part of a group experience (Earth included). When you mentioned a planetary shift, I immediately thought of the rapid community consciousness changes in the 60s and the leaps of technological changes in the 20th century and the large period of growth in the Renaissance… As you say, it’s all good!

    Your enthusiasm shines through and I feel your excitement—and I share it. Thank you for all you have explained, Akemi!

  2. Mokihana on January 24th, 2009 3:41 pm

    I am feeling this shift. Similar to your change to being vegetarian, my shift has included needing to shift the things I eat. Many years ago I learned about the connection between blood type and eating choices. It made sense to me then. I tried it for a while, then stopped. I’m eating for my blood type again, and noticing the changes.

    Just after the first of the year, my body went through more adjustments. As you know I live with multiple chemical sensitivities, and that means I am a finely-tuned instrument … a mature cello (smile). It takes a lot of energy to ‘fight’ the challenges of the environment. And about SLEEP PATTERN, that is changing for me, too. I ask for help, and find ways to understand the challenges from a higher look-out point. My guides said, “Share the wealth.” I began writing a new blog, a space for private spiritual consideration. That was two weeks ago.

    My ears have begun ringing. They have rung for a long time, and the sound gets softer or louder with events/stress/shifts in the soul. I have been paying attention to the reasons, and today FOUND YOU ARE WRITING ABOUT THE SHIFT IN SOULS. I remember being told that the vibration of the body will be reflected in sound, ringing … have you heard this? It’s a possibility. I feel the shift, I sense the journey is about not only pushing your boat to the sea, some of us are building that boat and the blue-print for building it doesn’t exist so we make it up.

    It’s an exciting and sometimes scary time. I love the timing of your post, and the content that truly resonates with what’s happening with me.

    Mahalo, Mokihana

    Hello Akemi, this is a most intriguing post you’ve written here. The subject matter is quite interesting and it resonates deeply with “me”. I say “me” because I might be one (two?) of those souls who is (are?) in the midst of a shift in souls.

    Telltale signs for “me” include (a) sudden, inexplicable loss of interest in topics, subjects, and blogs that had previously captured and sustained “my” interest; (b) more frequent, more intense verbal assaults on “my” person in the absence of any provocation by people from all walks of life in all kinds of situations; (c) a pervasive, inexplicable sense that all of “my” relationships (and I do mean all, including the one I have with you) are evaporating before “my” very eyes; (d) a strange and inexplicable loss in “my” sense of meaning, purpose, and direction coupled with a sense of meaning, purpose, and direction that feels alien to “me”; (e) a strange, pervasive, unshakable feeling that the world has become ever more savage and primitive; (f) a more intensely focused interest in exposing dark forces that are aligning to generate and orchestrate widespread chaos, death, and destruction on a global scale so that they can offer up their own brand of order when conditions become ripe to do so (a New World Order); (g) a strange preoccupation with dying, and with dying to the present moment in particular, and of wanting to leave my cushy job, pack up and move far, far away. I could go on, but I’ll stop there.

    I haven’t lost “my” mind. In fact, by taking the witness perspective, I’ve been able to keep “my” sanity and observe from a distance the feelings mentioned above. I just think the shift is happening gradually, as if the “old”, stale soul is slowly being phased out and the fresh, “new” one is slowly being phased in. I suppose this phase transition of souls would mean a fresh set of spirit guides in the inner circle? I’ve got some dowsing to do! You’ve given me (us?) lots to think about. If I need some help with this, I’ll be sure to let you know.


  4. akemi on January 24th, 2009 7:56 pm


    Not many people, including professional psychics and past life regression therapists, know about soul shifting. This is one reason I wrote this — to educate more people so they know what to expect. No awareness brings weird, twisted interpretation of what is really going on.

    Hope this post is helping you.


    I was going to post this next week, but got pushed to hurry up. (Gee, the spirits can be so demanding sometimes!) The shifts are happening so fast, and I now see it’s happening to so many people, it’s almost scary, but of course, that’s just our ego being scared. There is nothing to be scared really. It’s actually wonderful

    I like that you mentioned about those who are so behind. As Lightworkers, we need to help them. But then, there are those who have abandoned their own boats. I do not like their decisions, but I also know I just need to accept their decisions.

    I got your email, and I think I know what it is about. Will be contacting you shortly.


    Now you know why I emailed you, right? This is a big and abrupt shift. If you or someone is feeling the shift is phased, there is a reason — the old soul is probably stuck.

    Once we go through this shift, we are so free. You are free to go anywhere and do anything you like. I wish you stay around because I like you so much, but I know you will know what is best for you. So just in case I don’t get to see you often any longer — best wishes to you. (Hugs)

  5. akemi on January 24th, 2009 7:59 pm

    PS Yes, shifting to a new soul means getting a whole new team of Spirit Guides. Exciting, huh?

  6. Esther on January 25th, 2009 1:32 am

    Hi Akemi,
    This is the first time I wrote to you. I am a spiritual seeker, I had a lot of awakenings since end of last year. I had a divorced in last year, and I was looking for healings, either from God or my mental healings. But with God’s grace, I was step by step being guided to the righteous way or you can say God let me know what I done wrong in my previous years of my life, something like spiritual healings. I was always looking for affirmation for myself. I read a lot of spiritual things from the internet and it’s how l learnt to know your website. Now it’s very popular that people are talking about the 2012. In my opinion, the year 2012 means that all humanity on this Earth must change thier way of life to a more spiritual and God centered one by following principles God or the Universal Laws for the prosperity and happiness of humankind , including using material resources with a spiritual way of thinking. It’s God’s wish that His will of Heavenly place on Earth will be established from humanity on this Earth. No matter what religions we have, we must unite together. I am a universalist, I believe the Creator God. I am experiencing shifting in my soul, a lot of awakenigs regarding my character, my “Ego”. I must admit that I am a very stubborn person and it had lead to destruction of my life. I learnt from you that we must learn our lessons in this lifetime otherwise we have to repeat it next life time. However, I am afraid that I couldn’t change to what God expect us to be. I am wondering what lessons I learnt from divorcing my ex-husband and whether I made a right decision or not. But I knew it was my choice, somehow I regret my decision and my way of thinking for the past 8 years. But nothing can turn back now, I am just have to abandon myself and to live more positively and be confident. I love reading your posts. Keep up the good work.

  7. Daphne on January 25th, 2009 2:19 am

    Hi Akemi,

    I’m intrigued. I always thought the soul acquired a new body (through death and the next stage, whatever that may be) when it wanted new experiences. What you said is the exact opposite ie the body acquires a new soul. Like Julie, I’ll ponder this. Very thought provoking post.

  8. Andrea|Soul Realignment on January 25th, 2009 7:59 am

    Whoa. I’m totally going to argue with you on this, Akemi!

    The point of third-dimensional life is evolving the Soul. It’s not about evolving “ourselves” in a physical sense, but about growing and evolving the Soul.

    So why would it make sense to “outgrow” a Soul? After all, it’s the Soul itself that is here to grow and learn and evolve! So to be done with one Soul and now it’s time for a more evolved Soul … which part of you do you think you’re evolving, then?

    Our Soul undergoes tremendous shifts and changes as our vibration rate changes – yes. As our Soul changes, we change. But we don’t “outgrow” our Soul, because that’s the part of us that’s here TO grow. That’s the entire point of a physical incarnation.


  9. akemi on January 25th, 2009 8:19 am

    Hi Esther,
    Thank you for reading this blog, and best wishes to you.

    Well, from the body’s perspective, it gets a new soul, but we are essentially spiritual being, so I still think the soul chooses the body. Hope this makes sense to you.

  10. akemi on January 25th, 2009 9:27 am

    Hi Andrea,
    Thank you for your input. As I said, I don’t completely understand what is going on, but this is something I’ve observed in myself and some others, both in Akashic Records and in our daily experiences. I didn’t choose to cause this change, at least not in the regular meaning as our mind chooses certain options. But it seems to be happening.

  11. Davina on January 25th, 2009 11:22 am

    Hi Akemi. I’ve been through changes like this many times, where suddenly my diet changes, or my taste in clothes, sometimes I suddenly feel taller — that’s a weird one. I just think it’s part of evolving and I give the soul that I came in with full credit for this. My only understanding is that when the cycle of our souls is complete, we leave our bodies.

    I’m not an expert by any means, but this idea doesn’t resonate with me. It was interesting to read though and I appreciate you sharing this perspective. This is food for thought and it’s good to explore.

  12. Estelle on January 25th, 2009 11:30 am

    Wow .. your post really hit home with me today … I have been feeling the shift of the eating habits, sleeping and especially with the change in which way I was going … my purpose I had clarity and then .. shift.. to I do not know .. but as I mediate and be within … I find that it is going in a different direction .. I do not where at the moment – but know but the “pull” is there …


  13. Kerrie Lee on January 25th, 2009 12:53 pm

    Thank you for pointing me to this article, Akemi. As you know, I’m going through a change of my own. It’s not the first change like this I’ve experienced, but so far, it’s been the most demanding, stressful, uncomfortable, and frustrating internal struggle I’ve experienced. Some changes have been abrupt. Some have been descending upon me for months. I DO feel like I’m going crazy. I alternate between feeling elated and full of purpose, to feeling frustrated/angry/depressed with no purpose.

    I’m not comfortable with the idea of my soul trading places with another, but I’m eager to evolve and get through this very difficult transformation.

  14. akemi on January 25th, 2009 1:00 pm

    Thank you for your feedback. As I said, I don’t know everything about this shift at this time, and I appreciate any and all feedback.

    Glad you enjoyed the post. Enjoy the ride.

  15. Stephen Hopson on January 25th, 2009 1:33 pm

    This is a rather very intriguing article and may very well explain why I “suddenly went into raw foods” in September of 08 and why I feel stuck in the new year. It’s been the most strangest thing. I had been contemplating reasons why I was feeling the way I was feeling yet I have also been aware of the Earth’s ascension to the 5th dimension where the human race will be markedly different.

    Even though I had been “stuck” before, I felt something was different about it. You present interesting ideas as to what may be behind the things I’m feeling and experiencing these days.

    GREAT JOB! Very interesting and thought provoking. I’ve sent a link of this article to a few of my friends who are open minded and who think along the same lines I do.

  17. Anthony Lawrence on January 25th, 2009 4:08 pm

    I’ll be back in 2012.

    The world will be just as it is now, only 3 years older. People will do what people will do and the beat goes on.

    This “soul changing” is just growing up. There’s nothing more to it.

  18. Anthony Lawrence on January 25th, 2009 4:12 pm

    All joking aside: if you seriously think that “spirit guides” are talking to you, you need to seek medical help as quickly as possible. If you are simply having dreams and you choose to interpret them in that way, fine – you are OK and if it amuses you or helps you get through you life, that’s great. But if you think you are talking to anyone unreal while you are awake, you need help. Seriously.

  19. akemi on January 25th, 2009 4:29 pm

    Hi Kerrie,
    I think you coming back to me at this time means something — we’ll see.
    And as I wrote, I don’t believe this shift is happening in a haphazard way, like a new soul randomly coming in to us. That is more like a takeover, and surely doesn’t sound good. However, what I am talking about here is something more orchestrated. There is an agreement, or arrangement, between the first and second souls.

    Thank you for spreading the words about this post. I DO think this is critical to quite many people.

  20. akemi on January 25th, 2009 4:33 pm

    Hi Tony,
    Oh, I thought you were in complete denial of the existence of the soul?
    Many psychics have problems coming out because of that kind of treatment. But time is changing. Now many people are not just accepting psychics, they are willing to pay me to do work for them ^_^ And my service is far more worth than what I charge.

  21. Anthony Lawrence on January 25th, 2009 4:49 pm

    Denial? :-)

    Yes, and I’m denial about invisible pink unicorns too.

    Seriously – I’m not sure what to make of your “Many psychics have problems coming out because of that kind of treatment.”

    If that means you really do think you are talking to “spirit guides”, you need psychiatric help and you need it now. It’s not a joke, you need help. I’m sorry.

  22. Sumiran on January 25th, 2009 6:05 pm

    hello Akemi,
    I like your post and the expression, ” Honestly, I do not know or understand everything about this – this is something totally new to this world, and I am learning as I go. ..”

    BTW, I have included you in by BlogRoll..

  23. Esther on January 25th, 2009 6:55 pm

    HI Akemi,
    shifting in the soul means spiritual growth of our souls or our mind? Is Akashic record in us telling us this shift? thanks


  24. Liara Covert on January 25th, 2009 7:14 pm

    Akemi, it is meaningful to share personal experience as you do. Thanks for sharing. As you point out, a difference exists between imposing your views and simply offering information that can be viewed as alternative possibilities. I have known people to shift to the raw food diet and they viewed this as a positive change. As you mention, what works for some people does not mean it will be everyone’s choice.

    Best wishes,

  25. akemi on January 25th, 2009 9:13 pm

    BTW did you notice Winnie left you a response to your comment to my book review “Journey of Souls”? No obligation, but as a courtesy, you might want to check it out. She specifically @ you.

    Thank you for including me in your blogroll. I feel honored.

    There are various soul shifting as I wrote in the ( ) in the post. This specif kind of soul shift is, I believe, the result of our spiritual evolution. Not result as in this is the destination — this is just a passing point, but definitely a big turning point.
    I am not sure what you mean by “Akashic record in us telling us”. Akashic records are records of all the events, etc. They don’t tell you what. They record what.

    Right, you or anyone can take it or leave it. I trust those who need this info will know intuitively.

  26. Andrea|Soul Realignment on January 26th, 2009 1:23 pm

    Akemi, the real issue here is that what you’re saying makes no sense. Intuitive information from the spiritual plane NEVER argues with our conscious minds. We have reason and logic for good reason. The spiritual plane doesn’t ask us to suspend reason, ever! If you don’t understand it, then there’s something off, and maybe you should hold off writing about it until full understanding is attained. Otherwise, there’s an excellent chance you’re just putting misinformation out there.

    Accurate intuitive information fits itself into our conscious frame of reference. It does not argue with reason.

    Soul shifting as a “turning point” in spiritual evolution makes no sense. I’m not arguing with your Soul shift. But your reasoning behind the event is highly flawed.


  27. akemi on January 26th, 2009 2:40 pm

    I have no intention to argue with you. Nor am I asking anyone to agree with me. And if you or anyone can provide explanation that better fits what I have been observing, I am more than happy to learn it.
    As I clearly stated in the beginning of this article, I do not know or understand everything what is happening, and this article is meant to be a sharing that hopefully starts constructive discussion rather than “That’s just stupid” kind of write off.

  28. Anna Conlan ~ Healing and Insight on January 26th, 2009 7:05 pm

    Hi Akemi,

    How is it possible to ‘outgrow’ your soul? You are your soul! As a practitioner, this makes zero sense to me.


  29. akemi on January 26th, 2009 8:21 pm

    Hi Anna,
    You just emailed me you observed a different soul in me.
    When we observe something, we can do one of the two things:
    1) Accept, verify, and come up with hypothesis, which is all about science. Then verify the hypothesis.
    2) Write off because it doesn’t make sense in our existing belief system. (Authoritarian approach)

  30. Anna Conlan ~ Healing and Insight on January 26th, 2009 8:37 pm

    Hi Akemi,

    I fully accept your personal soul shift as real. But, I get that it’s a situation that’s specific to you and not a widespread phenomena.

    Its fine to come up with ideas like this and I’m all for the open discussion of ideas. Where it starts getting problematic is when you apply your theory to everyone across the board.

    And hypotheses are fine, but they have to hold water. Why would your soul walk out because ‘you’ had outgrown it? After all, you are your soul. So that makes no sense to me.

    Just my two cents for what it’s worth.

  31. PeaceLoveJoyBliss on January 26th, 2009 9:36 pm

    Hi Akemi, judging from the comments I’ve read so far, I see a lot of resistance to a very interesting idea, viz., the soul at birth completes its learning and growth before its incarnation dies, making way for an entirely fresh soul to inhabit said incarnation by absorbing the completed soul’s memories and making a fresh life for itself in said incarnation. Anyone with an open and critical mind can (and will) entertain this fascinating idea, at the very least, and, if so inclined, develop the idea based on relevant observations and experiences. I’ve dowsed for answers and have discovered, from a witness perspective within a core essence that is common to both souls that yes, a dramatic shift of souls did occur within my present incarnation that has had the result of radically shifting my ideas, beliefs, perspectives, and inclinations. Stick to your guns and treat the reactions of naysayers with a grain of salt. They know not what they say, speaking from fear, ignorance and/or prejudice.

  32. Julie -- Soul Realignment Practitioner on January 26th, 2009 10:04 pm

    Akemi, this is the first time that I’ve been on your website. I have just read your blog and I have to say that I do not follow your reasoning regarding Soul Shifting and Soul Evolution. I would like to discuss why it is that you think and feel the way that you do and for you to rebutt my questions.

    You say: “When you reach a certain point in your spiritual evolution…your soul shifts.” It is my understanding and belief that the whole point of spiritual evolution is that for our souls to grow and evolve. You yourself say that, “We have the soul – more accurately, we are spiritual beings in physical bodies.” We — as spiritual beings — are not defined by our bodies, which are just a physical vessel for our souls in this lifetime. Our identities, if you will, are in alignment with our souls. Our identities are our origins and the sum of our experiences. Our bodies do not do the evolving; our souls do. So I ask you, WHY would our souls have to shift in our bodies if the point of our soul existence is to continually grow and expand?

    And if you truly feel as though we need new souls in order to continue our spiritual evolution, why does it have to be “fresh, new souls”, as in the majority of the cases that you’ve seen? Wouldn’t it facilitate our growth if we chose older, wiser, and more evolved souls to take the place of our first soul vs a new, completely inexperienced soul who wouldn’t necessarily be qualified to take the place of that first soul on those higher floors, the more highly evolved floors according to your analogy?

    As spiritual beings who are on the path of growth and expansion, our choices are conscious; our lives and everything in them are of our creation. In other words, we are conscious creators of our reality. I would think that as we evolve and grow, we would not need new souls to replace the ones that are “done” for we are never really “done” on our path towards Enlightenment and/or Ascension. There are always new levels of consciousness to integrate on this 3rd-dimensional planet in our physical bodies.

    What are your thoughts?

    In Love & Light,

  33. akemi on January 26th, 2009 10:13 pm

    I don’t intend to “apply this theory to everyone across the board”. I need to read their Akashic Records to confirm if it has happened to that specific person or not. (And yes, I will ask for explicit permission to do this, thank you) However, I think there is a point about bringing awareness. If people had no idea about what may possibly be happening to them, how could they seek assistance and come to reading? And this is why I wrote this — to be true to my role to bring awareness.

    Christopher (Ah! Christopher 2),
    Thank you. Your words mean so much to me.

    And I know I am holding one comment in moderation. I think it is best to hold back this specific comment, not because she is disagreeing and I don’t like it, but to protect her name. We sometimes write / do etc what we don’t really mean to. We make human mistakes. I don’t want to expose this person’s temporary fit of confusion to the general public.

    I love all of you. At this point, I doubt anyone or anything can be outside my flow of love. There may be occasions that annoy me (like if you keep poking at me ^_^), but I still love you. It is a wonderful feeling. Thank you.

    I just noticed Julie’s comment. I will think about it. It’s past 10pm and I need to take care of myself.

  34. Mags | Woo-Woo Wisdom on January 27th, 2009 3:40 am

    Hi Akemi

    I can relate to the feeling of shifting that you describe, as I’ve recently experienced this myself. However, my understanding of what has happened for me over the last month is that my soul has shifted to a new energy level/frequency as a part of its ongoing spiritual development, rather than a new soul taking the place of my original soul.

    Interestingly, just before reading your post, I stumbled across the website of Karen Bishop (, in which she discusses this energy shift (not soul shift) and says that many lightworkers are experiencing this now at the start of 2009. I have yet to read through all of the information on her site, but what I have read so far has resonated for me in regard to what I’ve personally experienced over the last month, far more so than the idea of my soul shifting. I think you’ve accurately described what many people are going through at the moment, but have perhaps misinterpreted why it is occurring, possibly because you seem to be experiencing a personal soul shift?

    Mags | Woo-Woo Wisdoms last blog post..2009… Let It Shine!

  35. akemi on January 27th, 2009 7:37 am

    Interesting you mentioned Karen Bishop because I just bought her book. As I mentioned, I do feel this shift has a lot to do with the planetary shift. I will study her view.

    Hi all,
    I have started writing a new post to address the comments and questions. So please keep sharing your thoughts, and I will respond in that new article.

    Also, I have lifted the general comment moderation. Except for those who have sent me energetic bindings. While all is in my love and I appreciate the roles these individuals have played in my life, I see the need to practice discipline not to take that kind of assault. When you come back to love, you are welcome. (If this line doesn’t make sense to you, then it is not about you so don’t worry about it. And just so you know, Anthony Lawrence is still welcome. It’s not his kind of comment I am talking about.)


  36. Heddy on January 27th, 2009 9:39 am

    Thank you Akemi for creating this website, it’s so reasuring to know that other individuals are going through the same changes and feel the same way my loved ones and I do, especially the phycial changes! I would like to comment on the descripition of “soul shifting”. After reading the comments it appears that there may be some confusion about the shifting. My understanding of the process is that different “PARTS” of our souls shift into place when and where needed, rather than actual soul replacement. What I’m trying to say is there is a great deal going on at one time, and because we are in the “physical” plane, our souls can only accomplish so much at any one given time. So while one “part” is working progressively, the other part is, for lack of a better term, “stepping in” to maintain balance for as long as it needs to.

  38. Dot on January 28th, 2009 10:47 am

    As I wrote in another comment, the author Ruth Montgomery was a Washington Post reporter who, after she retired, wrote a number of books on spirituality. These were published 20-30 years ago.

    In the beginning, she was friends with the medium Arthur Ford and wrote about ideas that he channeled. After his death, she found she was able to channel him by automatic writing. She wrote about ten books on a variety of spiritual subjects, and one of them was about what you’re writing about here. If I can figure out which one, I’ll try to find some quotations to post in your comments at soem point. I’m so busy right now!

    Montgomery described the process of one soul taking the place of another, only with the consent of the higher self (or whatever you call it) of both souls. She called these new souls Walk-Ins, and said that they stepped in when a person was too tired to complete their journey, or sick or perhaps injured in some way. This enabled the Walk-In to skip the process of entering as a baby and then spending years just growing to adulthood. She also indicated that more souls were doing this because of changes that were coming.

    I found the whole idea uncomfortable, because I don’t feel like I have any control over what my higher self decides, and I didn’t want to suddenly find I was someone else, kind of. For many years, I just put the idea aside and figured it was something that Montgomery got wrong. And then suddenly I’m reading your posts about it. Imagine my surprise!

    I have had ringing in the ears lately, but they say that can be from medications, and I take 10-11 prescriptions. Other than that, I haven’t noticed anything, which is fine with me. :-) You are so trusting and accepting of these changes. I envy you your meditation practice, your abilities and your gratitude. I still can’t figure out what my purpose is.

  43. Arjun on February 4th, 2009 7:10 pm

    I too have observed these changes within me – eating certain kinds of food, doing yoga, reading the Bhagavat Gita, and generally trying to be aware all the time.

    Your point of view is interesting, but I do not wholly understand it. Like many people said above in the comments, the whole point of spiritual awakening is to awaken your soul. I believe that we are born back into the physical body (re-births) if the soul isn’t awakened.. Once the soul is awakened you are free from this cycle.
    This is what many of the religious texts say.

    Obviously I haven’t experienced any of this. Can this soul shifting theory be just an illusion to you? Can it be part of the process of you awakening to your true soul? Can it be that your mind is playing tricks on you to keep yourself from achieving enlightenment?

    It would be great to know where all this leads. Very interesting. Thanks.

  44. akemi on February 5th, 2009 8:38 pm

    Hi, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am reading all the comments, and answered them in the next post. So please check it out. Thank you.

  45. Jeff on February 6th, 2009 6:27 pm

    OK, well, it seems we have lots of opinions here. And what exactly is an opinion based on mostly, belief. Where do those come from? All paths lead home and nobody gets left behind. Some just find their way a little quicker, but then again, so what, because we have eternity. I must admit, that it bothers me and I am trying to work through that within, that so many people like to talk about Lessons. Just like all the questions I want to ask those who love and live by the bible, i want to ask those who make comments about Life Lessons, where did you learn that? Who told you we have lessons to learn? Did you speak to God/Creator? Did you get that straight from Jeshua/Jesus? According to God, in the Conversations With God books, we are not hear to learn anything, only to remember and then live through that rememberance, always expanding, experiencing and expressing. Our Soul is the one piece or part of us, or who we really Are, that is totally enlightened, God-like, the closest aspect of our selves that we have to God. It is in fact our God Essence. So, we have been told by many sources that we are in fact God, Godding. God is expressing and experiencing all the many facets of existence through the individual parts of itself. We may choose to come back again and again to experience the opposite outcome of a situation, but we are not doing it to Learn. In our spiritual essence we are all knowing, pure, content and happy. We only desire to come back to experience what we know. That is why we have children born with difficulties. They chose that situation on another level of Self. We know that these lives are but a flicker in time, and that we cannot be destroyed or harmed in reality. Jeshua has said many times through Judith Coates, that there is only One truth with a big “T” and that is “I AM THAT I AM”, and all other truths are with a small “t”. Even the so-called crucifixion. He says about those who are claiming it never happened, that maybe in their timeline or experience it did not. He will not argue their point or tell them they are wrong. So Akemi here, is correct of course about the two Souls and the body discarding one of them at times. There is no such thing as right and wrong, only different perspectives, choices and the consequences from those choices, but never right or wrong. Those are just labels we human beings place on people, places and things, situations and circumstances.



  46. akemi on February 6th, 2009 7:16 pm

    Thank you for taking the time to write your comment.

    Just a reminder — you don’t need to go through someone or someone’s books to communicate with spirits. Truth is available to all, directly. I like reading, but think reading is only secondary. Just a note because there are so many people who give up their own power. (Usually heady people)

  47. Debra on February 6th, 2009 8:33 pm

    It will definitely be interesting to see what the results of 2012 are: spiritual enlightenment, or mass destrustion. I’ve read so many theories about thsi date in time, that who really knows what will happen. Personally, I hope for something wonderful, like the return of Christ.

    I often hear people feeling dishearten about the future of human beings and Earth changes. I wrote an article, to express to people on how they could be able to logically see that there is a conscious plan to our existence. The history of conscious evolution and everything that has happen, was there for a precise reason. The article pointed out a logically clear understanding, that there is a future destination of realizing our potential as human beings.

  56. RL David on March 20th, 2009 7:02 am

    I’m going to have to respectfully disagree with the critics :)

    To say that our souls can’t change in this way denies our souls power. I believe that in a way, our souls can reincarnate on a higher level than we can consciously comprehend.

    Perhaps it’s like getting RL David version 2.0. My first soul has gotten a slew of updates, but isn’t running optimally anymore from having too many additions. It would run much better if the programming was condensed into a 2.0 version, instead of just tacking shit on.

    Then v. 2.0 is available for better updates. Once we get too many updates for 2.0, we could get 3.0, and so on into infinity.

    I feel that it makes sense, because the world is essentially a school, and our souls are students. After a while, we’re going to need to graduate high school (v. 1.0), lest we become eternal super seniors. Why go back to high school, when we’re finished with college?

  57. Orunmila on March 22nd, 2009 8:10 am

    There are many paths to the one creator, having said that I shall add to your conversation. First of all, there are many aspects of what we have termed the soul and much of that exists outside of this reality. It is often times very difficult to rationally speak of the soul in terms of our present focus of experience because there is dissonance in the worlds or planes that our souls simultaneously exist upon. For example, are souls exist on many levels at many points in space time, they are separate and parallels and exist as potentials, yet they carry on different roles with respect to and in keeping with the “oversouls” need to learn and experience.

    The “oversoul” or “higher self” can be thought of as a manager in a sense(I’m over simplifying here) whereby the souls that are ‘living’ there lives reciprocate experience back from what ever space time reality that are experiencing to be stored within the oversoul. Now, Akemi, I am just traveling through here so I know very little about your technique for gaining information from the akasha, but what you say is very possible. I believe the postors who can not make sense of your understanding are right in a sense as well, because the oversoul cannot change, but the individual souls that oversee each individual incarnation does often change aspect as they are really part of the same oversoul.

    Let me put it this way, imagine the hand, this could be considered the oversoul, now the over soul has fingers like the hand that extend into different spacetimes or lives, as they (the fingers)experience that reality they send the experience or data back to the hand(which is really the true experiencer). Each of the fingers of the hand can be considered the individual souls that each of us have and it perhaps those individual souls that you see changing, not the oversoul.

    Peace Orunmila

    Yeah, the new powered up version of the same software — that’s how I see it too.

    Welcome. I recently finally figured out the relationship of what you call oversoul and individual souls. I wrote about it in Who Am I? Your idea seems very similar — I’m glad I have some supporters.

  60. Kate on April 8th, 2009 4:29 am


    All my life I have felt that I have a purpose here in this lifetime. I didnt know what it was, just an overwhelming sense that I am here for a specific purpose and I felt lost not knowing what it was. Like nothing I choose mattered, just do something, anything to pass the time until my purpose presented itself, I had no drive to do anything specific or to “be” anything at all. Most children/adolescents/adults have ideas of what they want to “be” or “do” with there lives, I never had a drive because it didnt matter, I was just wandering around aimlessly doing what I was told to do and what people expected me to do. When I graduated high school, was a hard time, I was expected to go to college but I had no clue what to go for, nothing interested me, nothing drove me so it lead to me starting once, deciding that I didnt want to do that career, quiting, working odd jobs for years, going back trying it again and choosing a path based on “I think i can tolerate doing this” and I pushed myself to finish and get a degree, but when I finished that even, I still felt “lost” and that i was just here “waiting” for the time in which my purpose in life came around. After I finished school I married the man I have been with for years and 2 years later we had a child together, still nothing drove me, I was still “lost and wandering and waiting”. This continued thru another almost decade, the marriage with my first husband ended and 2 years later I married another nice man and was with him until about a year and a half ago…which is when my life changed or started to change…..

    I can totally relate to your articals on Ascending Souls(walk-in as I have refer to it). I know that I have had a walk-in and I too am learning more and more about myself by the day. I feel my soul exchange is done. I am now becoming aware of all the changes little by little. I am learning new info about myself daily and it is all positive and I look forward to more changes and seeing where this path leads me. I can tell you my soul exchange started or happened not sure which, in July/Aug 2007 I dont remember the actual date. The first and most noticable change was that I woke up one day and no longer viewed my husband the same. This man that I was in love with and attracted to the day before, was no longer attractive to me and I found i was not in love with him. I loved him still but was no longer IN love with him and I was not attracted to him anymore. This led to the end of that relationship months later when I realised I couldnt get the feelings back no matter what I did. I left him and my life has been ever changing since then in every aspect first for the worse (which I now believe was the transition or settling in of my new soul) and now for the better (because i believe the exchange is compete or it has settled in).

    I have I an overwhelming need to got to school for something that I would have Never choose before and anything I did to try and not do that would end up just not being able to happen, “road blocks” if you will, were set up in my path. As time went on I stopped fighting my “feelings” that this is what I needed to do as more road blocks got set up and the only opportunities that would present themselves were ones that were leading me to further my education in a certain field, I have now taken the only 2 jobs that I have been offered out of 100′s and both of which fall Around the schedule for my education, I have signed up to start school and I just realised the other day that my feeling of being lost is finally gone! It had been replaced with knowing I am on the right track, and that I am taking my first step toward my “purpose”. No I still do not know my true purpose, but it is an awesome feeling to know I am on my way, making progress toward something I know is the reason I am on earth. :-) I can not wait now to see how everyday unfolds before my eyes and what is coming next. It is the best feeling!

    I know now that the reason I felt “lost and that I had no purpose” was because my original soul had only one purpose, and that was to raise me until it was time for my new soul to come in. That was the deal made, it didnt matter what I “did” with my life as long as I got to where the new soul needed me to be. I did learn life lessons along the way and the basics ideas that my new soul needed me to know, but it had nothing to do with what I had done with my life up til that point. As long as I learned the “foundation” for my new soul. My old soul opened me up to the ideas of being spiritual rather then religious and open minded and intrigued by anything New Age, but I never had thoughts that much of it pertained to me. Just that It was interesting and I believed in it and was in “awe” of it. Little did I know, it was something that would influence me later and I would be part of. I am glad that I am. :-) I look forward to learning new things everyday on my new souls journey!

    Love and Joy

    Hi Kate,
    Thank you for your sharing. I’m glad you are on your track!

  62. Lotusflower on April 10th, 2009 5:07 pm

    Dear Akemi,

    First of all I congratulate you on speaking out so honestly. To your critics – she has explained that she is new to this and is speaking from personal experience, in words that resonate with her.

    I have undergone massive changes within the last couple of years. I feel the soul changes are on the route to soul ascension. Basically, not being able to be around certain people anymore – the ones you were happy to hang out with before! Feelings of isolation, sleep patterns changing, headaches etc.

    It’s all good and probably different in varying degrees for each of us – even though we all come from the same essence of consciousness and are all connected.

    Oneness, harmony, light, peace has always been there but it will manifest more with us going through ascension. A new world order. Brilliant.

    Lots of Lovexxx

  63. Bill on April 27th, 2009 1:56 am

    Hi Akemi
    It takes courage to go public with some thing that is completely different so well done on that point; I have to admit I have never heard of soul shifting but I would like to put this soul shifting into a different perspective.
    What if the new soul that takes the place of the old soul is not a new soul but in fact your own soul coming back to you; in the beginning when we were first given life by God we were give life as spiritual twins male/female. Our soul at that time was able to split into two; one as female and one as male; with that being the case our soul could be in two places at once. In the spiritual world both halves of the soul can merge back into one soul; on a material world that merging of the two halves can never happen even though there is always that spiritual link between the two halves. What if your soul shifting is actually the exchanging of the split soul of the male and female into each others body?

    You see Akemi what I know is also different but it does actually fit the profile of your soul shifting; there is a saying that two are one and that saying can be found in the Gospel of Thomas. That saying can also be found in ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs only they have it round the other way stating that one are two and in fact that saying can be traced back much further.

    From my point of view your soul shifting makes perfect sense to me with what I know as it is part of this planetary shift/ascension and a person’s purpose in life only you and I are just coming from different directions


  64. akemi on April 29th, 2009 5:51 pm

    Sorry to be slow in my response. The Ascension soul shift is a big topic that I wrote quite a few follow up posts for, so please check them out as well.

    Hi there,

    Just a few words on change in our ever changing world. We seek advice from spirit guides as a means of understanding these changes.

    The world is evolving & has been doing so since the early 1900′s, (in a spiritual awakening sense). Evolution means change, change in all forms of living “physical” and “spiritual” senses. Change is good, change is re-structuring, renewing & re-vitalizing. This is a period of self-awakening, self empowerment & self-adjustment. Not everyone accepts or likes change, in fact seldom do. Having said that, there are those of us that share a certain way of doing things, a certain understanding and an embrace of sorts if you can call it, to this new change. This is the “spiritual” side of us feeling & welcoming these changes.

    The fact that we as human beings cannot “see” these spiritual changes does not mean that they are not happening. We are all spirit beings that descend from other vast realms into physical bodies not to learn lessons, but to remember, (by remembering) I mean “experiencing” what these lessons have to offer. For example people “know” when they made a bad choice almost simultaneously as they made the choice. Have you ever told yourself, “I knew I shouldn’t have done that, but I did anyway” The fact is that we are so closely linked with our “past lives” that we have already done the exact same thing before in any case, and require a different experience through emotion. This is why when this happens it all seems too familiar.

    These lessons provide different levels of feedback to our spirit selves empowering our souls to learn & grow from these experiences. We as spirit beings are linked to the Creator / God Source / Power. (I am referring this way to respect the religious impact it has) in a most spectacular way. We were created in the image & likeness of the Creator as a means for him/her to further their knowledge about him/her. It is therefore understood that we have Godlike Power in all of what we can create & manifest in our daily lives. This is a blessing bestowed upon us, in the form of FREE WILL. Ask and you shall receive, is not a mere few words thrown together to form a sentence. It is a “reminder” that we are in control of our daily experiences and interpretation of emotions.
    It is a reminder that we “cultivate” what experiences our soul’s desire & yearn for. What I am saying is that we all have the power to be what & who we want!! Limitations that we set for ourselves are truly in the mind.

    Our spirit selves therefore seek out new experiences by the use of “physical bodies” because they carry emotion. As a spirit being you understand emotion, but vibrate at such a high level therefore do NOT need to respond to emotion. They are so highly evolved that they do not react in any way possible. This is the very reason spirit guides do not react in a negative way once you’ve made a mistake. You get impartial advice from them, sometimes in a “serious” tone as they are direct & we are not used to this form of communication. Remember spirit guides are there to give you choices, when you feel so bogged down that making a choice seems like an unconquerable feat. Change is part of that choice that we make. It is part of what makes us who we are, and what makes us individuals, as we all experience things in a different way. We are here on this physical plane to experience change, change of emotions, change through adaptation and change of spiritual enhancement and acceptance. Embrace change through this wonderful period as it will only get better.

    Be Blessed

    I am really concerned that you are opening yourself up to demon spirits.
    The Bible says for example that even Satan can appear as an angel of Light – or a good spirit- as long as it suits his purpose.
    It is not like the movies – demons can be as demur or agressive or even as ultra good and super-clean feeling to us humans who don’t have a handbook on how to interpet all their tricks, as they want to be.
    If at some point in time you come to believe that I am right, write me, or find a genuine Bible believing deliverance minister to help you. (
    Don’t surrender your will power.even if you are an atheist.

    Hi Akemi! What a plethora of information you have on your site. I’m glad I was ‘lead’ to it.

    All I have to say about your soul shift theory is — “if it works for you, work it”.

    Personally, I’d hate to think I’d lose my soul and find that it’s been replaced, but WE really don’t know — that theory could stand correct. However, I find modalities/theories like Cord Cutting and Soul Shifting to be more like a loss of self and at this present moment can not fathom entertaining those methods of ‘release’ or change.

    At a conscious level we know we’re evolving or shifting but I don’t think any of us are in a position to disregard what you’re saying (regardless of our practices and beliefs or truths — afterall we’re STILL human). If you’re finding clients who benefit from your theory then I think you’ve done your job!!

    Spiritual Peace and Many Blessings

  72. Viktor Tenn on November 13th, 2009 8:10 am


    You have been trying to comprehend something that is not in your powers to understand, yet. The Soul is both a dynamic and static being within metaphysical existence in extra spatial and spatial dimension, that is your soul has full capacity to transfer the infinite wealth of informaiton not just from spatial dimension but also from extra spatial dimension. The soul remains static for the period of time that it is manifesting its physical presence in the lower world, that is our world. We are simply an extension of our soul, we are that what our soul utilizes to manifest physical presence. Our brains are the management centers of physical presence, yes they are very sophisticated and complex management centers, but that is what they are. We are in no way autonimous beings nor were we ever meant to be.

    The diffrence between humans and animals is quite interesting; humans are given the ability to understand and influence the souls condition of being, since the soul is never given 100% control over its physicall presence. This is what many of us call will, animals have no will in the concious sense, their modus operanda is instinct.

    The will we are given is what I referr to as His Presence. We are given the ability to feel and comprehend the divine as we are able to feel and comprehend evil.. It is our choice. If souls had a choice they of course would not take the risk of manifestation as a physical presence in our world. Yet, this is part of His Design, the soul must continue its cycle of existence changing along with the rest of the universe, without exception, thus evolving or decaying.

    Therefore when you feel that your soul is being reborn or you get a new soul, this is just you coming into a greater harmony with your exestential self, that is you develop your will; you begin to acquire traits, thoughts, tendencies and information from your soul which previously you had limited or no access to, since you were not open or ready for this shift.

    Understand that when you start to do this you open yourself to Astral Plane existence, the metaphysical worlds, which you must be ready for, since most people are never prepared for this nor do they really understand the potential consequences of existential transcendence and transference.

    Therefore I recommend that before you truly begin to propagate this shift, which all of us have the power to do, you must prepare yourself with prayer and read the old testament, Genesis, try to better understand His Design, you must feel it and you must feel His Presence. Once you feel this you will immediately understand what I am talking about. Come in contact with His Angels and prepare yourself. Since remember that when you make this shift and move forward you will have to overcome the evil which wants to keep you in its grasp, keep you dumb and blind and trick you into giving up your soul. It is a dangerous journey, one that should not be taken lightly, evil is very elusive and very tricky.

    Remember you never change souls, God Forbid, this is evils trickery, evils is as ancient as the Universe so if you think sometimes you are communicating with your soul or angels, the opposite can apply.

    Anyways to make it short, be very cautios and never let your ego dictate to you. Never conisder yourself extraordinary and pay close attention to your dreams, your soul will give you hints and you must be ready to understand them.

    Good Luck

  73. Viktor Tenn on November 13th, 2009 8:35 am

    I want to comment on Steve’s article. Steve if you are reading this, you are leading the lambs to the slaughter. Both you and I know that spiritual guides as you call them are transcendent beings which are part beast part something else. They are chameleons and lead people spiritually to the abyss. I have witnessed this happen with many people. So what you are offering is pure evil, it is a dangerous concoction of trickery to enslave the soul of the person through their will.

    Folks be very carefull about believing what you read, God our Lord is the only spiritual guide there is nothing else. God gives us tests as we continue on our path of enlightenment. These tests are difficult and rigorous, with many pitfalls and traps. Spirtuality is not something you can buy at the five and time it is a lifetime commitment to God. All other forms of spirituality put our Soul in jeapordy, more than we suspect.

    Anyone who communicates with spiritual guides, uses uija, cards or other things of this nature is on their way to becoming a sacrificial lamb.

    Again stay away from considering yourself extraordinary, that you are given spiritual guides and all that goobldi goop! Believe in your self, believe that you possess the power to guide yourself with God help, listend to your Inner Waters and learn to dissiminate the trickery.

    Couple of tips, ask several times who am I communicating with, never be satisfied with just asking once. Pay attention to your state of sleep and dreams. Always cleanse yourself with prayer before and after you communicate with your Inner Waters. This will protect you.

  74. RL David on November 13th, 2009 8:59 am


    I’m not sure what sort of theology you’re operating under, but that’s certainly not Christianity. Christianity has no astral planes–it’s far more cut and dried. As a Christian, one spends time on the planet, feels the work of the Holy Spirit and/or God within their hearts and souls, then dies and either experiences Heaven or Hell. The judgment process is under debate amongst the various sects, but the basics are still pretty similar.

    Many Christians would believe that you’re endangering souls with that kind of talk. So…pointing fingers seems a little silly, eh?

  75. Viktor Tenn on November 13th, 2009 9:01 am

    Akemi, This is FOR YOU!

    If you have been told by something or someone you are communicating with, that you need to build bridges of life, in order to prepare yourself for the shift in being which is coming soon or something similar. This is a LIE! Be very careful!!!! If your something or someone is showing you how to use your newly discovered talents or even helping you physically. This is a LIE! Refuse it, this is evil and it is using people that are unaware to completely take over the soul, through their own will.

    Now I hope you are warned therefore you are armed.

  76. Viktor Tenn on November 13th, 2009 9:13 am

    Hi RL Davi,

    Theology is a term that we humans coined as refernce for His Immanence. All in all I am not talking about religion. I will try to explain why. Belief in God goes fard deeper than religion it is the essence of being. It is that which embedded in all of us. It is very important to understand that no matter Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist or other God is still one and no notion of religion will change that.

    My experience, I personally have seen people possesed go to church and pray and nothing happened with them, except maybe a yawn.

    The issue is not religion. The Old Testament for instance has many different levels of understanding, it is infinte in knowledge, wisdom and information about our universe, existence, creation and His Immanence. Yet, it is not something that is uncovered immediately, this depends on whether a person is ready to feel and understand,by accessing what is within all of us our Inner Waters, our Soul, it is the only gateway to understanding and enlightenment.

    The terminology I used when referring to astral planes, may be misleading, I am talking about the Universal Consruct, which is a structure of multi dimensional existence, presence, powers, forces and mediums which manifest our Universal Construct, His Design.

  77. Viktor Tenn on November 13th, 2009 9:46 am

    To RL David,

    What is endangering souls is talk of soul shifting and spiritual guides, it is something that has led many astray, no matter their religious convictions. You want cut and dry, well evil is not cut and dry. Many people are tricked and misled, more than you think or can begin to imagine.

    You have people of different religious faiths comitting attrocious acts in the name of religion or just committing them for no rhyme or reason. Ever ask yoursefl why?

    Modern medicine and science, is begining to understand that there is something inexplicable that they just can’t put their fingures on when it comes to human behaviour, why people do the things sometimes they do? We just write it off, they went crazy or some other explanation. We forgett to look at the root. To this day phsycologists cannot explain why a person becomes schyzophrenic or why they begin to develop phsycosis. There are many things which people just think is part of life, we have all been conditioned to think this way and accept that what we cannot explain.

  78. Steve on November 27th, 2009 11:48 am

    To Viktor Tenn : My Rebuttal to your comments
    Why is it through fear that people seek justification for their understanding of the unknown?

    I believe in GOD just as much as the average Jew, Christian, and Catholic. I believe in his ultimate wisdom & foresight to understand that we as humans are creatures of habit and tend to do all the things we shouldn’t, and therefore gave Jesus to us to die on the cross for our sins??? Not so?? I also believe that he chooses to communicate to ALL living things in their OWN special way.
    God doesn’t say because you are a Christian or Jewish or Catholic that only following those religions will guarantee you will hear from him, through prayer etc.

    He sees everyone as equals, and therefore chooses to communicate to us in all forms and ways, through Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism and believe it or not even through Spiritualism. Why? Because as an ALL-KNOWING being he understands our need to have a belief system. He understands our need to have guidance, and this guidance comes in ALL forms and shapes.
    His least favorite form of communication is through words, because they are slave to emotions. Through emotions we distort the meaning of the message that has been passed directly to us.

    I believe that we don’t listen, because we are too busy talking, having opinions and just plain ignorant to the fact that he chooses his way, and we need to learn to tune in. Spiritualism is a way to tune in. No-one ever forces anyone to become a Spiritualist; they choose this out of FREE WILL. A blessing we all received before incarnating.

    There are some of us who understand this and some who don’t. He is communicating with us all the time, we just don’t quiet the noise, through pre-ordained beliefs, misinformation, misunderstanding & judgment to ever listen. There are NO wrong or right answers in this life or any life, except the experiences that we choose to learn prior to coming to this earth.
    Yes I’m not denouncing there are rules which we know are significantly wrong, (ironically that is pre-built) into each and every person incarnating, such as do not Kill, do not steal – yet most of us have stolen something in our lives or broken a commandment. This could have been some small change from your mom or dad’s wallet, or a friend’s possession that we never intended to return that was on loan.

    As long as we recognize what we are doing wrong, have remorse, observe the lesson we have been taught and try our utmost best to not repeat the same mistake again.

    That is what true valor is, true honesty, true integrity!!! Not saying because I don’t understand your way of thinking, that you are wrong or leading people to the slaughter, as you so put it. Rather than passing judgment, observe what you don’t understand, ask for forgiveness, learn your lessons and seek guidance. Through this your fear will be diminished and your heart be filed with love and peace again.

    Be Blessed


  79. Viktor Tenn on November 27th, 2009 1:29 pm

    Hi Steve,

    You have written and expressed very clearly some beautiful thoughts, it is obviously one of your gifts.

    I respect what you are stating and more so in most of what you have written I whole heartedly agree.

    Would like to point out, that even the most righteous, the most religious have been led astray as human history shows. People tend to forget that while fulfilling our purpose here we are tried and tested, as we hold true to our path. A person should be prepared and sharing the dangers or pitfalls of progressing towards His Glory is something that is meant to help someone and in now way should put that person in jeopardy or question their faith and beliefs.

    I agree that all of us have broken a commandment or two during our life, He is all forgiving and we all have a chance to make ammends for such action or inaction.

    Now look deeper inside yourself and ask as simple question, why? Why do we need religion or systems of faith which divide us and seperate us from one another. More blood has been shed over differences of religion than I care to read about or remember.

    When people begin to classify and identify with certain forms of belief, that is when dissent and blood shed starts as history has shown. So why not just believe in His Everlasting Glory. What lacks today in our day and age is collective enlightenment, humans took that away from themselves a few thousand years ago. Now you have indivdualism, transferring the individual human condition to religion, again created by people to differentiate themselves and their set of beliefs.

    The Old Testament was given to humanity for a reason, the main reason was to form a collective light of love and understanding, to have collective thought amongst all peoples of any creed or color to unite them in a collective synergy of light energies unifying the souls, what a great gift was given to humanity. Now look at what the results are today in our world. This occured because knowledge was not shared collectively, people who understood did not share it outside their communities,their creed, their lineage or their select groups.

    So sometimes what may sound or seem crass, is actually just another way of progressing collective understanding. Just the simple fact that we are exchanging information that will be read by others is already a great step.

    Imagine, if our children would be taught to understand what is collective enlightement and why it is so important for the spiritual and physical well being of humanity. If they would be taught that the Ten Commandments are much more than just a set of laws, if they would be taught what is true brotherhood as it relates to our souls and not just to our physical presence., imagine how humanity would benefit. Why was praying banned in public schools? Simple, differences of beliefs, strange Huh. That means people could not agree who would have the most influence.

    How many people died trying to prove who is the messiah, well the messiah is all of us, the souls which are physically present in this world when unified as a collective love and energy; are the messiah, that is what will save mankind. I think that Christ would say that he was sent here in order for people to understand that harmony, kindness and love come from collective enlightment. Isn’t that what he tried to do, is to enlightenment people share with them knowledge of His Kingdom and for that he was punished.

    I really welcome your comments and respect your thoughts and opinions.

  80. Nikkolas Maxwell on November 27th, 2009 2:25 pm

    Jeremiah 25:6 Tells Christians and Jews Don’t go after other gods…
    Exodus 20:3 Have no other Gods……
    Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to God the Father but through me John 14:6
    John 10:1-11 verse 9 Jesus is the door, verse 1 any other way of trying to reach God is criminal- outlawed – like stealing.
    God doesn’t really come in all flavors,we just want Him to. It is how WE want it to be, not how it is.
    Satan can appear as an angel of light( that is look good, feel good – but not good. So we have to test the spirits and sort out who is of God and who is not,and the bad guys don’t wear black hats. 1John 4:1
    As you tune in to the spirit realm, any spirit that you connect with that is not
    the Holy Spirit of God is going to evenually cause you harm.
    Think about Eve she ate a piece of fruit, by itself that doesn’t sound bad or look bad, but it precipitated all the sin ,death and destruction that we know about. She knew what God had said to not do – for her protection- her childrens
    protection on down to me and you. She was conned by a Spirit who road in on her pet snake and she paid in her life,her marriage, her relationship with God, and with the life of her children and grand children, her home,her world changed
    from listening to a con artist spirit who sold her a lie.
    I am 100% for tuning into and obeying God (the one true God) If you have him there is nothing that the others spirits can give you that He does not have.
    The commandments are laws to protect us,but Christianity is a relationship with God through Jesus Christ – not just dos and don’ts.
    Matt10:35 Jesus said: I have come to set man at variance with his father and daughter against Mother, verse 34 Don’t think that I came to bring peace
    but I came to bring a sword……..verse 33 Who ever denies me before men ,I will deny before my Father(God) Why did he do this, verse 36 because if we don’t love Him more than family ,friends,, our opinions , we are not worthy of him and the price that He paid to redeem us.
    You and I are at a variance .I am on the inside of Christianity looking out and you are on the outside looking in – so we are divided, by the sword(the word of God) I risk your scorn, judgement ,retaliation,to tell you what the inside of Christianity is because you can not understand it from the outside.It makes no sense from that side of the door.
    If you receive Jesus and come throught that proper door then His Spirit will teach you, fill you, empower you, comfort you, and live in/with you in comunnion, and fellowship, like a partner.
    and… If you go to a Christian church and they have not told you these things – you need a new church not a new spirit.
    Best wishes,

  81. Viktor Tenn on November 27th, 2009 3:35 pm


    You have a very young soul, this is why you are so adement about what you feel. Any form of extreme emotion brings the soul into conflict with its purpose and its physical manifestation in our world.

    To accept is to give and to give is to love and to love is to understand, this is something that you will face along your path as all of us do at one time or another. When you start to give more than you take, that is when you will begin to climb to the next step.

    It is difficult right now to understand what I have written, but if you delve inside your inner waters you will find that harmony is acheived through commradary, brotherhood, kindness, understanding, giving and acceptance.

    Take your fellow man in stride and don’t rush that which takes time and patience to understand.

    All, is within you, everything that you were, you are or ever will be. You just have to search, understand, feel and give.

    Wish you Love and Happiness

  83. Jessica Eleven - Consciously Birthing on December 14th, 2009 10:17 pm

    Hi Akemi!! So I wanted to say thank you for posting this article. I read it almost exactly two months ago and in that time frame have encountered and gone through a host of changes!! I am very well aware of what you are refering to in your attempt to educate us on this shifting that has occured within you.

    Soul shifting is very propable. It may not occur for all who elevate and out of ignorance many have left negative comments. The ‘elevator’ analogy you used is PERFECT! LOL and I hope others who have a genuine curiousity will study up on these certain things.

    We can not expect you to have the answers to everything, afterall you’re living this experience just as anyone else is… Thanks for being brave and putting this out there for all who are interested to see.

    Spiritual Peace and Many Blessings,

    PS. After posting my previous comment, I realized it was a fear of releasing certain attachments that made me so quick to knock Cord Cutting and Soul shifting.

    Akemi: Blessings, continue ascending and dancing to the beat of your own drum.

    For the rest of you who waste your time coming onto someone else’s site to talk down to them, try practicing what you preach and evolve to a higher level beyond pettiness. A truly evolved person would be open enough or intelligent enough to be respectful of another’s views even if you disagree with them. You ignorant people are lucky that Akemi even responds to you. I personally would not waste my time. Get a life or spend your time developing your own blog and be positive instead of searching the web to prove somebody else wrong. Hopefully by 2012, the earth will ascend and rid itself of small minded jealous individuals like yourself. Remember, we only try to conquer those we fear…

    Don’t trouble yourself Akemi, it is only a matter of time before these idiots disappear from your universe. As your vibrations continue to rise, you will not even pick up their frequency…..Don’t give them your energy.

  87. Pax on September 11th, 2010 2:05 pm

    Akemi, in January or Feb 2009 when you posted about soul shifts, I rejected the idea. Just total reject.

    Today, I can begin to see what you mean.

    Something has definitely happened here. Beginning around September 2009. I felt it instantly. But it is only today that I made a connection between that event and what you wrote about in early 2009.

    I don’t think I have a different soul, I think I have the same soul that is for some reason, somehow, being reborn. Can you believe it? Or one could say it is completely refreshing itself. As in when the refresh button on a computer is touched.

    But it’s so much more than that.

    And it seems like a continuing, intermittent, process. Like it happens when it happens. How long this will go on I have no idea. What started it…I can think of maybe a couple ideas.

    How could the average person not know about this? Or maybe everyone did know except me!

    I guess this is not the soul shift experience you talked about. But whatever it is it feels so…unexpected. It’s such a surprise. And no complaints here so far.

    I just wanted you to know how much difference there can be in outlook in just a year and a half! And thank you for your very very interesting site.

  88. Christa on September 26th, 2010 12:31 pm

    I have gone through a huge spiritual change recently. I have realized many things you have written as well as others, simply by receiving the thought in my head. And I know who gave them to me. God. It is all God, it’s his plan. He is coming soon and He is coming so save those who have loved and followed Him. I read so much about spirituality and no one seems to ever mention God. Its always higer self, etc. I don’t know what you believe as far as God goes but He is the one who brough me all of this knowledge of the world and my purpose.

  89. Christa on September 26th, 2010 12:39 pm

    I just posted the comment above. I would like to say that your information is very helpful and has given me a few of the missing puzzle peices. I haven’t had a chance to look over all of your website but it is very facinating, thank-you for sharing. God bless.

  90. lan on October 9th, 2010 12:11 pm

    Well i don’t mind to be rude….but it sounds simply neurotic.
    Why are you dumping imaginative concepts on net and eventually in peoples mind in the name of ascension?

    If my body changes and soul also changes then who am I ???
    what is my identity ???

    Our soul is our identity and we work to evolve it in lifetimes….now if soul has chnged then who are you….this body…it will go in few days….then what will you be?

    what do u think you are then????

    really silly and a junk thought.
    sorry to see so many people believing this

  91. Matt on October 10th, 2010 2:14 pm

    I see some conflict with the concept in others eyes. It may be better to view the ‘new soul’ that enters the body and the ‘old soul’ that leaves to be part of the same over SOUL. Our DNA is hardwired so our personalities remain intact its when the new soul comes into affect you get pull or sensations to do things different. The ascension process completely alters your perception on existence. On life, on people, on animals, plants. The wind blows and you know it blows for you. You see why, you see maybe. You see what is.

    Emotions are electrical impulses from the body based off of our mental state of being what we are perceiving. Another way of saying “emotions” are energy. New Soul = New Energy = New way of Feeling = New way of Perceiving.

    Higher level of emotional plan such as love brings more clarity and focus due its ability to calm set free racing thoughts. Its ability to just let you be ‘what is’. If the new soul is in turn a positive step then this shift would bring one closer to ascension. This is also a new concept to me Im just writing from my thoughts and memories from what I was to what I am.

  92. Matt on October 10th, 2010 2:33 pm


    Did not see your post but I would like to comment.

    Our soul is our identity and we work to evolve it in lifetimes….now if soul has chnged then who are you….this body…it will go in few days….then what will you be?

    To say your soul is your identity is a twisted concept. Your physical DNA came from your parents and then you further the ‘identity’ process by learned behavior from parents and environment. I believe your soul holds certain characteristics in your personality that will influence your life but for the most part you are who you are in this life. To say your soul makes up who you are would not be completely true. Your choices make up who you are and your soul helps you make those choices. The right choice is made when you pay attention to what your soul wants the wrong choice is an act of neglect of the soul.

    In the end the fact of the concept that everything is one and together is an example of this concept is plausible.

    Path towards ascension teach that we may not like what others have to say or agree with it but as long as the words being written or said encourage a path to seek a higher level of learning it is then positive and beneficial towards humanity as a whole. Acknowledge the concept that what we do to another, we do to ourselves in turn. Your post is riddled with question marks yet no answers….

    Another thought,

    This is her thoughts and perception on the concept using her own terminology. This will be mine.

    You cant maintain yourself spiritually if you don’t set up a foundation of strong positive beliefs. This first soul can be the brick layer to set up the foundation for the next soul, I’ll consider it ‘the other half’.

    The first soul could be setting you up to learn your spiritual lessons of forgiveness, patient and understanding. The next soul thus building off of what you learned from the old soul brings about the next chapter of advanced truth seeking. Because you moved on and learned the lessons of the first soul the second soul can then talk louder and guide you further. Being the second soul can talk louder your ability to truth seek is no longer limited to reading books and physical forms of learning. You learn from the world. You pay attention to what you feel and gain a deeper level of interpretation. Making your body a vessel for higher energies is always recommended. Common sense always steers you in the right direction if you use it.

    The concept of First and Second souls seems to deviate from the concept that everything is connected. The first soul can still be the second soul, the second soul just has a different program. Maybe a divine program. I believe if you match your physical DNA program to that of the higher soul you allow it to tune into your being.

    Your DNA is hardcoded – hair, eye color, height. Cant change it. Only thing in our DNA you can change is your personality. Your personality resonates with the universe for better or worse. Choice changes the personality thus changing vibrations. Maybe the higher you tune your personality you allow that aspect of your soul to incarnate with you. It still would be YOU just a different you that comes with a different perception but still being apart of the WHOLE.

    Your view on souls is interesting. I struggled to explain what I experienced one night when I was taken out of body. Now I have experienced an astral body, my physical body and seen my light body at the same time. More later,

    I have also been told that my real body is sleeping elsewhere and I wll soon return to it, if that makes sense. Plus I have seen along with my wife a future of interest.

    Staying with the soul however I go back to the first paragraph. In this event I was taken out by whomever, my guides I suppose, but did not see them, yet knew they were there. I awakened to a high pitch sound again, followed by vibrations and then aseparating from my body, none under my control. I was looking down/back and saw this light being whom I felt was me, yet separate from me. It seemed very pleased that I was shown it, if you can imagine a light emanating a smile and good will as well as a sense of humor.

    Then one of those with me told me clearly that it was a sacred thing. I felt in some way, I had done a good job or something and that part of me was pleased. Also, I feel I am an old soul, yet that part of me seemed young which from a universal vew, it would be. Oddly for the next three days, I was calm about this as though it was something that within I already knew, but then the import of the event set in, and emotion finally got into the picture. Usually however, I stay calm in all events including this one. Oddly, when I have told others of this, there is little interest, yet it seems that one would be excited to know we are far more than just our little bodies we wear for a time.

    Sorry about the double post here, but I just read what you said about the light bodies, and that was what I was shown. Makes sense now perhaps when I was told I would return to my real body soon. Heh, but then I am in my 70′s, but still have this mind of a kid.

    In two dreams/visions, one duplicated exactly by my wife, I saw ourselves or myself walking a land with few people. I was told that there would be a great separation of loved one’s, new relationships made and then a reunion. To put that into context, this old body of mine would not hold up under the rigors of walking a great land which I have seen and strived to attain. So, pehaps our light bodies may continue in some form into a quasi physical plane, but knowing what we are for the people we saw were open and friendly with a great celebration when we gathered again after 17 years. Now 17 plus one plus 71 would make me close to 105 walking like a young man, I think not. LOL No conslusion here, but fun questions.

    We are not ” ascending” anywhere, certainly not into the ” 4th or 5th dimension”.
    There are no new souls! This is not what the Akashic records! There is however a Human Plan which we (all human souls on Earth) agreed on collectively to complete by the end of 2011/2012. The whole thing is about reintegrating the whole soul within the physical body. It is a matter of choice, everyone who has chosen to complete this process can be part of. This is what the Akashic records, no ascension, no new souls instead the completion of the soul / the higher self and reintegration into the body!
    Too many are deceived by channeled messages and website. All in all I can say there’s no need to be afraid of anything that might happen in 2011/2012. Finally we will become fully human (again) at least those who choose to do so. Clear out your emotional debris, simpflify your life and pay attention to your higher self, learn to recognize it and be guided by this higher aspect of yourself- no external angels or spirit guides ( they are actually all part of you!)

    >___< I think i'm too attached to my body to let go… it feels weird… the thought of giving up being a artist or a writer… really bothers me for some reason.

    I can feel lots of pains in my body… ones doctors can't explain and sometimes extremely intense…

    I actually have to say I agree with Alex here, I just get the feeling they are more right on track…

    I don't think its possible for ANY of us to understand whats going to happen.

    All we can do is prepare for multiple different outcomes as the earth's outcomes could change with our human desicions…
    heck, people could suddenly wake up tomarrow and say 'what are we doing to the planet?! '

    and start cleaning and picking up…
    and then….we reversed the tradgedies already…
    I mean anything is possible.

    don't get me wrong, i'm not attracted to this world for the idea of posession…for money or greed or power

    but I like how humans can be unique…diverse I don't know something just seems special about that.

    many other races all look the same…think in one giant whole instead of individually. And though I agree we should all come together and unite. Where would the 'learning' and 'fun' in our existence be if we had no individual thought?

    I was told by spirit we all have individual soul, we are all born seperate, but of the same matter.

    How could this be if we just become one solid mass of thinking in seperate similar looking bodies?

    I like how we can have different skin / eye colors… things like that.
    but i guess ..that divides unity : [ but the thought of getting rid of that unique inprint… is really sad to me for some reason. I guess you can't have peace with diversity. u__u

    i'll probably be 'left behind' because I can't seem to think on that.

    either way i do wish to clear my past karma and imprinted memories (got abducted once and those little grey things have been giving me nightmares for years and especially ALOT recently)

  98. Evelia on July 14th, 2011 2:06 pm

    and my mom has said , the other side isn’t all ‘happy and rainbows’ infact she says she misses the ability to cuddle ;A;’

    but hey, whose to say i’m right either? honestly we have all been questioning our existence what is supposed to happen to us many many times,

    and 9 times out of 10 been wrong.

    like dolores cannon had said, we have adverted the ‘worst case scenario’ of what her channeled messages from the prophocies of nostradomus.

    I don’t think its our job to know ‘what’ I think its just our job to live, and if you have changed recently Its a good thing of course, but don’t sit there and slave every waking moment to meditation, Meditate daily of course…

    but don’t get lost in this…remember who you are. Even with cleared memories/karma, you are still you, that cannot change. Or you would certainly have no interest in posting here.

    your energy can change..your life can shift. But in the end, you are still you.

    so the idea of a ‘new soul’ i wouldn’t agree as calling it that…

    maybe… ‘a new calling’ …’a evolved version of my previous self’

    >__< it gets confusing dosn't it?

    well I will prepare for WHATEVER the outcome may be.

    we could all also be wrong too…a meteor COULD strike the earth, again we have no idea.

    the outcome could be different depending on our perception..

    again we have NO IDEA what will happen,

    I appreciate your thoughst on this though n___n I'm open to all sorts of ideas,

    but this seems a little bit hirearchical, and you'd think even if it is for us to learn and shift individually on our own terms, again our individual selves… heh.

    … you'd think we'd all be awoken shifting in mass by now. Time would certainly be running out for me and others who are aware but not quite ready yet, and what would happen to us? would we get destroyed in the 3d earth? our hell becoming reality? even if we don't have bad intent, even if we are aware of whats going on?

    that seems a little bit negative.

    anyway thats my end on thoughts n_n
    im open to all this, but as we need to use both right and left brain to balance, don't forget to constantly check yourself … day in and out. Constantly ask these questions of what is to come, but live life here while you can.

    heck i havn't even gotten around to visiting japan or any other country for that matter yet T__T;

    time is very short now….

  99. Evelia on July 14th, 2011 2:27 pm

    i think you could refesh your soul…clean out all the muck and grime…but to become a new soul, that would mean your soul in side a soul, would have to trans fer into a new soul entirely for you to have been here with these memories.

    i’ve heard of things like ‘walk in’s but not stuff like this before : /
