Why do I feel like I don’t belong?

Do you ever feel like a misfit, a foreigner, like you’ve woken up in a strange world where you just don’t belong? Well maybe you have!

So many of my clients talk about not fitting in or present in consultation in a way that tells me they are new to this place and this time. The following may seem a tad fanciful but there is much that will make sense and the question of where we have come from is worth pondering.

We cannot be alone in this vast universe and, quite apart from that, we are beginning to understand about parallel universes and alternative dimensions. To imagine that ours is the only inhabited planet is also fanciful in itself and I have no doubt that while this may taking some thinking about, it will resonate with some of you.

While we’ve all lived many lives before, we may actually not have experienced a life on planet Earth. It’s long interested me that past life readings always seem to refer to lives as Queen Elizabeth I, Napoleon or Cleopatra but I’ve only once or twice come across someone who had actually been told about a life off-world.

It has been said that there is a huge queue of beings waiting to incarnate on the earth for the physical experiences which are available to us. As one of a few three dimensional planets this is a rare and limited opportunity.

This whole process makes me think of the many people who would like to call Australia home. They may have the dream of living here but are not accepted for migration and can only peer through the fence or watch the reality of this place via the media. Unlike the illegal boats, there is no illegal incarnation.

So we are actually the lucky ones and we are living the dream!

You may stop reading this blog right here because your own life may seem like a nightmare rather than a dream, but if you are reading this blog you are here to work out your soul purpose and you are already doing this at some level. Life on planet Earth isn’t always perfect because we’ve chosen a tough place to learn our lessons, but the benefits are huge in terms of our learning and our experience.

And while beings incarnate from all over the universe, one of the most challenging places to incarnate from are the angelic realms and believe me, there are incarnate angels here on planet Earth, walking among us. Look around you and I’ve no doubt you will be able to pick some of these beings shining their light.

For these individuals life on Earth is a position they have accepted with joy and optimism. however, the process of incarnation generally wipes all memory of our choices and our purpose during the early years, which can make life an additional challenge. These beings have lived in their full light body and in their perfection but they have now chosen to incarnate to assist the progression to the fifth dimension**. You may be one of these incarnate angels or you may know someone who is. You’ve chosen a challenging path, but once you remember where you came from and why you’re here, things will make more sense.

When I’m thinking about the choices some beings have made for this lifetime, I often think about the people who become drug addicts, sexual deviants, murderers and so on and wonder if they have specifically chosen this to work with. One could say they are not particularly spiritually advanced and are drawn just to taste these ‘pleasures’. However, it is more likely the opposite is true and they are actually very spiritually advanced but need the physical experience to be whole and to be able to teach souls in other realms – those unable to get a passport in – what that physical experience can entail.

Before we judge someone for their life choices, perhaps we need to consider this from a more spiritual perspective and consider the lessons they may learn from these choices. It’s evident when we look at what is going on in our world that it really is an experiential place, not unlike a reality TV show. It makes me think of the bar in Star Wars on Tattoine where there are “people” from all over the many galaxies. We all look similar on plant Earth but really that’s only on the outside and only for this lifetime!

Being in a physical body, particularly after living in a light body, can feel strange and uncomfortable, perhaps physical illness or disability add to this discomfort. Often it’s difficult to figure out how things work down here and to understand why the world as a whole works the way it does or why life is so complex or so hard.

Many spiritual teachers talk about the souls who have come from across the cosmos to be here at this time on the Earth. This is a time in which we are undergoing a monumental shift from third to fifth dimension**. This can be a challenging and prolonged transition, however, some of this process may feel strangely familiar.

But knowing this doesn’t make being here any easier. You have your physical nature to contend with and this may be new to you. This third dimension energy can make everything seem separate and disconnected, while the energy changes to fifth dimensional energy, which come and go, can feel chaotic although again vaguely familiar.

Often the place you came from worked on pure energy and empathy was a positive emotion. On planet Earth, with this deeply intuitive level often unrecognised, you’ll pick up the energies, emotions and thoughts of others. Sometimes you’ll confuse them as your own, causing you to feel ungrounded, uncertain and overwhelmed.

On the Earth you’ll often be unfamiliar with working via the mind, instead of direct from the heart, so this can be a challenge too. In this world those with the strongest intellect, the pushiest personalities and often the least moral feeling tend to succeed, while intuition, compassion and other heart-centred emotions are looked down on and undervalued.

So why have you chosen this strange place for this incarnation? Did you have some higher plan when you made this choice? Are you part of some Divine plan?

Of course you are!

This Divine plan, of which we are all a part because we are all Divine and all one, is to help the rest of humanity awaken to this fact, to activate the spark of multidimensional awareness within all and to raise the vibration of this planet to the fifth dimension for the benefit of all. If you look around you – on the TV, on facebook and other social media – you can see the enormous amount of good and positive work that is being done. People power is in full flow or should that read ‘light beacons’?

But you may need a ‘protective bubble’ to be here!

You do need good grounding and good boundaries to survive on planet Earth and if you want to read more about these important tools for survival, take a look at my recent blog on the subject. The WyldChyld Essence My Bubble is a good and tangible tool for this purpose, as is the Soul Harmonics Foundation Essence (coming soon).

There is an up-side to all this!

You might be hugely challenged in a physical sense in the life you have chosen for this incarnation, but energetically I have no doubt many of you find your ability to resonate and work creatively is amazing. By that I’m talking about synchronicity, manifestation, connections, intuition and so on. You could be enjoying lunch with your family at a local café, while synchronously downloading energy and radiating it for others (usually unconsciously) to share. This energetic input is designed to remind those around us of their own soul vibration and purpose and to trigger their own awakening from illusion.

Many of the amazing light workers I’ve met over the past almost 25 years on the path have had really challenging physical lives. Sometimes you have to rise above this, mostly you have to step into your power and manifest what you really want to experience because once you are conscious, and particularly in this time and place, you’ve done your work and you just need to hold the energy and shine the light for those coming behind you. If you have any doubts about this read the blog Can we ever be Whole and Healed? for some more insight.

So our mission here is important and invaluable and it doesn’t involve anything more than just being ourselves. Remember that we are all perfect already, we just need to recognise it, but even if we’re not ready to accept this as fact, we are still doing the job we’ve incarnated for – to hold and share the energy of transformation.

It’s all we have to do!

And we can do this without healing, without being perfect, without doing any more than we are doing now. We just need to “be”, to work on grounding so we can hold firm and to trust that we are doing it right.

We may be in pain and we may struggle to fit in and be accepted here, but do know and understand that we are all accepted by our brothers and sisters around the world, and by our soul family, who are drawing close at this special time. I have no doubt that many of you will have made soul connections already and I have no doubt that your reading of this blog will awaken you to the realisation that many of us sharing this information have soul connections already.

I’ve said before that you don’t always need your problems to be fixed, because dropping the illusion will often show us that there is not really a problem. But this can be hard to accept when our life here is challenging and sometimes we just need someone to recognise our pain and allow us to express it and to know that we’ve been heard. You don’t have to do more than offer a silent prayer to Source and your soul brothers and sisters will hear you and hold you in their light so you can activate your soul purpose even if you cannot heal and even if life continues to be a struggle.

Remember you are loved and you are perfect!
