We were raised in the traditional Christian belief system that
one life is all you get. When we began to speak with our angelic
team, we found that they often talk about past lives and how they
relate to this one.
The Angels Speak:
Nearly all of the religions of the world have chosen to believe in
the continuity of life. But whether you believe in one or more, this
message today will focus on how one life is more than just this
narrow period of time you are experiencing now which you call “your
Those of you who believe in one life are right! There IS only one
life. But it is a very long one. Veeeeeerrrrrryyyyy long. It has
different segments and patterns and plots. You are the main
character and you assume many roles and images, but in truth, your
soul is the lead character in the play called Your Life.
Souls were created on the First Day of the First Millennium. You
have been working on lessons ever since. You have been striving to
gain in wisdom and love. You have assigned yourself tasks in every
living segment that will lead you forward, help others, and to
elevate your being.
We find the thought amusing that there are people who believe that
one life is enough in which to learn all of the hundreds and
thousands of lessons a soul must learn in order to gain perfection.
But first we want you to know that this IS the life you are living,
and as such it is the most important one for the lessons at hand.
Concentrate on this one foremost and not dwell on prior or future
lives. The greatest difficulty of mankind is to live in the NOW.
Focus foremost on your current life.
To go further to help you understand, think of yourself in a room.
Think of yourself walking to the next room, with different décor,
different furniture, different purpose. You would not think you died
by walking into it, would you? No, it would seem just like forward
Then think of yourself going into your bedroom. You didn’t die to
get there, did you? You simply moved into another place. Now think
of yourself going to bed and sleeping. It doesn’t occur to you when
you wake up in the morning that you died while you were asleep, does
it? You are wise enough to understand that change doesn’t mean
death. You understand that there is a continuous flow of existence
even though the scene changes or you are unconscious for a period of
time. It is the same with lives.
As you flow from one experience to another, you choose your
existences. You choose your lessons and those who you will exist
with so that you can help each other. You create the grand scenes so
that everyone involved may learn for their greater good. It is the
cast of characters and the lessons that change. There are only brief
rests and intermissions in between so you may regroup and construct
You are the master of your plan. We help oversee it all. We keep you
on track. Your higher self, which is your wisdom, remembers all your
lives—past, present, and future, and what you have chosen to
accomplish or learn. We make sure you don’t stray too far from the
theme you have created for yourself. All you need to do is trust
that we are with you and are aware of your greater plan. We have
been with you since the beginning.
Give your angels thanks for being with you ALL your lives. Ask for
their guidance and help through this one.
