Soul Progression

Copyright Caitlin Wilson 2013The term soul progression can be quite expansive. To define it simply, soul progression refers to your soul’s incarnation for this lifetime (and all lifetimes) and encompasses all of life’s experiences and the resulting evolution.

Discussing this topic on Spirit Sessions with Drew and Shelly, one caller was extremely frustrated with her life circumstances and how it was evolving. She was comparing her own life to another (actually several) and was very angry.

As a spiritual teacher, I wish to reiterate the importance of seeing things from a Higher perspective – your soul’s perspective. Your soul chose to incarnate to Earth school for this lifetime. Your soul chose opportunities for learning and growth. While your human- ness doesn’t remember and cannot understand these challenges, your soul understands. Seeing things from the Higher perspective, each one of us are expressions of Source consciousness/God. We are having this human life experience as us (who we chose to be incarnated as during this lifetime) to learn, grow, and evolve. I encourage you to acknowledge your experiences, whether you deem them pleasant or unpleasant, as opportunities for learning and growth. These experiences do not define you, but will undoubtedly have an impact on who you are today.

When presented with challenges, I encourage you to pause, step back, BREATHE and then allow yourself the opportunity to choose how you wish to react. In the big scheme of things, there are five things you can control. You have control of your thoughts, words, actions, emotions and reactions. Everything else is beyond your control. You can choose how you wish to react, and sometimes the appropriate response is to have no reaction at all.

Take a moment to breathe in deeply and let go of the lower vibration emotions of fear, worry, doubt, regret, guilt, shame, anger, frustration, etc. and breathe in the higher vibration of love. Focus your energy on this present moment and allow yourself to be embraced in the loving embrace of the Divine.

Allow yourself to acknowledge these experiences, express your gratitude with sincerity for having them, and then honor yourself by moving forward with grace and ease. There is nothing to be gained by blaming anyone for your life’s experiences. Take ownership of them and see the blessings within the challenges. When you do, you will shift the energy of those experiences. The more that you allow yourself the opportunity to live in the moment by bringing all of your energy to the here and now rather than dwelling in the past or contemplating the future, the more at peace you will be. By doing so, you will also be in the flow to manifest your heart’s desire.
