If you answered yes to one or more of these questions there is a fairly good chance that you have prepared yourself specifically for your life purpose before you were born, i.e. in your last intermissive period between physical lives. If we made a plan for this current life, surely it is the highest priority for us to remember what that was. We are after all here to live into our own life, not that of a society that is still largely constrained by excessive materialism. Nor are we obliged to follow the path of our biological family, for even though they will be people with whom we are connected by strong karmic bonds, they may not necessarily share the same evolutionary priorities during this current existence. If we have come here with an existential programme it is paramount that we connect deeply with ourselves and live this life from the inside out, creating it from the depth of our consciousness rather than external social expectations. Because if we have prepared ourselves for this current life, then the answers to what it is we have come here to create, heal and accomplish are all inside of us.
As you read through them, ask yourself honestly and frankly whether they apply to you and if so to what extent and depth. For example, with regard to 2 "certainty of your immortality", one person may feel quite strongly that they are immortal, but still carry some doubt and fears, for another it is an absolute certainty, while a third feels completely overwhelmed by the question and has no confidence of their existence beyond this life. This evaluation is only for you, there is no one to impress, so be honest with yourself especially around your fears and uncertainties. Therein lies the key to growth.
02. Self-awareness. Certainty of your immortality, an awareness of eternal life, inside of yourself, in your personal essence.
03. Prioritisation. A deep-rooted aspiration to take full advantage of the current existence, searching for discernment, general knowledge and greater self-awareness.
04. Seriexis. Natural, intimate acceptance of the theory of seriexis (series of existences, i.e. living many physical lives) as a fact, incorporated into day-to-day existence.
05. Hyperacuity. Experience of enlightening inspirations (innate ideas) about your destiny, personal career (existential task) or human life (seriexis).
06. Self-motivation. Spontaneous self-motivation to research and execute assistential, or beneficial, parapsychic, energetic practices.
07. Parapsychism. Sporadic, yet convincing and pacifying, parapsychic and animistic self-perceptions.
08. Proexis. Indefinite, yet persistent, intuitions about some important existential task (proexis) to be realised or that is rapidly developing.
09. Self-retrocognitions. Logical, coherent, definitive and enriching self-retrocognitions. Unhealthy retrocognitions reflect the catalogue of our self-omissions.
10. Omni-interaction. Personal and self-aware identification of the cosmos, life and order in the universe, which exists under the permanent control of evolved consciexes. (adapted from Vieira 2018:604)
An important tool is to develop the practice of listening to our inner voice. In our interview, Tathiana shared how in her case there was a voice present from childhood that gave her the sense that she was looking for people, places and activities that she somehow remembered. She did not really understand the source of this sense until later, but it kept her alert and open to something “unknown”, and when she eventually saw it, she recognised it. In my book I share a similar sense of being on the look-out for someone without understanding why or who. For many of us, the circumstances and pressures of life can obscure our own inner voice, and much like in Peter Pan as we "grow up" we loose touch with our purpose. Meditation and other mindfulness practices can certainly help us connect with ourselves. But if we really want to connect with our existential purpose and task, it is even more powerful if we focus specifically on that question with intent: why am I here?
Tathiana shared two techniques we can adopt to that end. Both involve spending some time alone, free from distractions, including your phone, internet and so on, so you can really tune into your self.
Exercise 1 – allow one hour in a space where you will not be disturbed. Just yourself with pen and paper. Start with a body or breath focused meditation or the basic movement of energies if you know that technique. This helps you center yourself and go deeper into your own reality. When you feel yourself truly present ask yourself this question – when you were a child of anywhere between 6-10 years old, what did you imagine you would do with your life? Whatever comes up write it down, without editing or second guessing. Then see if you can connect with something more or get more detail about the idea. What we are working with here is the fact that, despite the limitations we may have had in our maturity as children, we were still much closer to our intermissive period and not as conditioned by the social expectations and often very limiting beliefs that surround us at school and society generally. You are likely to connect with one or more ideas, and if there is any kind of charge or excitement about them you know they are important for you.
Exercise 2 – allow three hours in a space where you will not be disturbed. Again just yourself with pen and paper and start with a body or breath focused meditation or the basic movement of energies if you know that technique. This helps you center yourself and go deeper into your own reality. When you feel yourself truly present write at the top of a piece of paper “Intermissive Course” and then reflect on your skills or talents, your weaknesses, and your character or temperament, honestly and from the heart. Write down what you find. To dig into your temperament you can ask yourself different questions like: How do I show up around honesty? Around commitment? Around determination? Around integrity? And any other area you identify as part of your character. You need to be specific, writing examples for each item, so for example if you consider yourself focused and determined, write a number of examples how that shows up in your life. If you think you are skilled at negotiating, how does that show up. If you think you have a weakness of being inconsistent, how does that manifest and what is the cost in your life? This is just for us so be very honest to make sure you are not deceiving yourself, but also compassionate. Pause between each question to do some meditation or energy work and then move to the next area of inquiry. You are allocating three hours to break through psychological defences such as idealizing yourself, getting bored to think about yourself and so on. As you go deeper you will have extraphysical assistance by helpers who are keen to support you with your self-research and success in this life. As you immerse yourself they may trigger memories of your intermissive course or help you connect with your deepest desires and creative ambitions. In the final hour you may gain a lot of insights even about how to execute your life plan.
If you have a shot at either of those exercises, I'd love to hear from you.
