Lest We Forget
When a human dies and doesn’t know it, that human soul is lost. There will be exceptions to that, naturally, but mostly it’s simple as that. And?
Lost human souls are way-too-common in the Spirit World. Not a good thing.
When dealing with the more negative citizens of the Spirit World, the cursed, predators of various sorts, demons, ghosts, dark energies, sundry evil, our first question, is whether or not lost human souls are in the mix.
The answer is, oh so many times, lost human souls are the pawns and the prizes in the events stirred by those negative citizens.
In other words, most dark events in the spirit world involve the use and abuse of lost human souls.
Most of us, in the living of our lives, have heard, or possibly told, a story about a person who dies unexpectedly, perhaps in an accident or a homicide, or simply, too young to die. These tragedies cause high commotion among the living, and the same happens in the spirit world.
Unexpected death presents a challenge for our soul. Since we aren’t expecting it, we don’t prepare. At the moment of the shock, it’s possible our conscious awareness is simply not conscious of what just happened. Since our soul basically is consciousness, and since we’re living something, we’re not conscious of, the chances of confusion are high.
What are a soul’s choices at that moment? For the most part we have two big choices, although it’s never that simple, especially if the soul doesn’t have all the facts.
First, we can choose what many call the Light. When a soul takes this route, she goes with ancestors and/or helping spirits to a safe place in order to go through an afterlife review, thus preparing for the next step in the long journey of our souls.
Second, we can follow the consciousness we died with and see where it takes us, certainly in directions without the benefit of the light. Outside of that guiding light, souls easily become victim to Spirits much better at spirit life than recently dead humans, as well as victim to living practitioners who entrap souls to do their own evil, back the living world.
One of the most common calls we get is a request to remove the energy of death from a living being. This happens by accident or negligence, or just as likely, a dead soul has been ordered to manipulate a living soul in some way. Note, this is not possession. But you could say the dead has taken territory in the living soul’s aura – to watch, to confuse, to manipulate.
This taken territory is composed mainly of emotions, which is what malignant energies seek. Ninety-nine percent of the time the dead soul is not there by choice, or because it has anything against you. Rather it’s beings, living or non-corporal, beings with more conscious awareness, beings with malignant intentions, that are forcing that soul.
Since souls are a large part of our vocation, we work with them all year, constantly honoring, seeking and assisting ancestors, aiding lost souls where we can. The year both begins and culminates on Día De Los Muertos, Nov 2.
In other words, the calendar year for our dead, goes November to November. Considering the dead are, in many ways, still on the Earth, time may have some meaning. What do we know?
We actually ALL know more than we think. If you’re drawn to the subject, chances are you do have some call to help, to serve, perhaps to just understand. Our experience has shown us that it’s the easiest thing in the world to engage, and yet among the most dangerous mental-spiritual activities for the living to engage as well. So please, engage carefully and
