by archangel ZadkielGreetings, dearest friends! You have chosen to incarnate in these wonderful times which are full of valuable lessons for you. Enjoy what you have been given, as this is a great opportunity for your soul to accomplish so much – learn more than usual during one single incarnation, catch up on some pushed aside issues, and leap forward – all that is possible in your current incarnation. This may seem too fantastic, but it is one of the best opportunities for souls – which is the spiritual reason why there are so many people on earth, more humans are on this planet than ever before in your history of three dimensional mankind. Many are going through some very rough times, a good indication that they are either learning some very important lessons, or catching up on some, or dissolving some past karma by going through these experiences. Many have requested to be allowed to incarnate now, but only few are permitted, as there are limitations to how many can be on earth, and one might even think that the limit has been exceeded in some areas, but it is what those souls requested and agreed to. As you may know, those that suffer and go through hardships, often make the greatest spiritual advances, grow the most in the inside. This does not mean that you need to seek hardships to grow, but you should not avoid it either, but see it as a welcome opportunity for your soul to learn and grow. All this, of course, requires, more than anything else, faith. While we have spoken about faith before, it has not been explored sufficiently. It must be pointed out that faith is not something that can be learned by deciding mentally to do so, faith comes from the soul, from the heart, and transpires to the consciousness, into mental levels as well. It is so that everyone has faith, but not everyone realizes that it is there. Allowing it to transpire from the soul through the heart into consciousness makes it become part of your reality. Suppressing it through denial will reduce it to the point where it can no longer be noticed. Faith is a core message from our soul, expressing the deepest inner knowledge that life has its specific purpose, and that there is help from guides, teachers, and angels in the spirit world – even more so, that there is a loving creator, who is fair and just, and forgiving as much as fairness can permit – also that love and positive forces are stronger than temptation and negative forces. It is a seed within you to strive higher, to want to grow spiritually. Faith is the driving force behind spiritual endeavors, and can give great strength beyond anything experienced on this planet. To some extent, faith keeps you alive, for those that loose almost all faith tend to become suicidal, as they loose any sense of purpose in their life. Thus, you have faith, but you need to let it bloom like a flower – in many, it is just barely like a bud, that needs to be watered and needs light – let your inner light shine, and your trust will bloom. May you be blessed, dearest friends, greetings to you! Amen, Amen, Amen.
