There is no past life. The Timeline is always set to now.
One of my earliest Alternate Timeline experiences back in the early 1990’s, was short, intense, beautiful, and completely spontaneous. I was immersed in a specific pranayama practice in New York City, back before it was called “breath work”. This particular class focused on rebirthing an aspect of ourselves that was stuck, lost or needed care to bring forward into healing today. This was at the beginning of my spiritual practice and it was very new to me.
Rebirthing pranayama can stimulate remarkable effects. It often causes the body, face and limbs to tingle unbearably, and the hands to claw with tetany. Tetany occurs during extended breathing practices like hyperventilation, and is a result of the dropping amounts of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream. It can feel overwhelming and may bring up deep fears and anxieties.
I felt like I was dying.
Instead of bodily death, what I found was emotional release. The uninspiring fluorescent-lit classroom in Manhattan faded away until I found myself in the body of a young man, seated at the edge of a giant chasm in the desert. All around me was hot, red earth. I was at the edge of a massive mesa overlooking the deep, dark valley below. To my left was a small fire. My skin was bare and long, black hair fell down almost to my waist. I was chanting loudly to the Earth and for the Great Spirit to be with me. This was a Vision Quest, and I was utterly alone in the wilderness.
As I chanted and prayed, I heard the cry of an eagle. Flying at my eye-line, just before me in the wide open space beyond the cliff, was my answer. A powerful bird looked into my heart and called my name in greeting. I began to weep in gratitude and with overwhelming love for being recognized by my Creator and for being welcomed home into Spirit.
My arms raised in prayer above my head, my heart opened in joy and suddenly I found myself back in my body in New York City. Crying, shaking and overcome by the release, I lay curled up on my mat on the floor. The moment was so moving and the insight so impactful, that I drew the image of my vision in my notebook. I’m hardly an artist, but this image became a potent reminder that there was no such thing as a past life.
This is a living life that occurs in multiple dimensions all at once. I felt that my soul had broken through in my moment of preparation for death. It reminded me of my connection to another time and place, to another part of me that I had never imagined before I lived it with my vision. My infinite soul was alive and vital and reaching out to show me how much more there was to learn than I had ever imagined before.
As a result of this experience, I was forever changed. My learning and my practice became more relevant and personal. An aspect of my soul had awakened me in my version of now, to remind me who I am in every aspect of awareness.
My journey, 30+ years later continues to unfold. New insights and awakenings build upon previous ones, replacing older, outmoded ones, and up-leveling me in ways that I never dreamed possible.
Today, I seek to share these emerging insights for others who are also ready to Awaken. Each one of us are here to teach, share, and become more balanced humans. This practice for each individual is the hallmark for the awakening of all human kind.
So I invite you to join me in exploration of the Alternate Timelines. Discover for yourself that there is no ‘past”. Everything you are, everything you think you know, and whomever you wish to become are all present in the now. You are ready to be unlocked and revealed today as already home, One with Great Spirit.
