Spirit Teaches…Searching for clarity

Soul planning, past lives, afterlife, afterdeath communication, what do they really mean? 

They are the mysteries of life and death that force themselves to the forefront…for those of you knowingly on your spiritual journeys…and even for those who feel they are not ready…

We will bring this conversation from Spirit to these places…one at a time for clarification.

And then there will be more…

We know there are many differences in perceptions of what the soul journey brings. You can hear something new and different every day. Mediums and writers, spiritual teachers and skeptics…. Why isn’t there one voice coming to make it clear what the truth is about death and beyond?

As Scott/Spirit/your children/loved ones we come to you through Sara, without her permission it might seem, to share. We are with her always. She is used to us being with her day and night. This is her soul plan in action. None of what we bring is her voice…although she is well versed in most everything we will share in this blog and future writings.

Spirit teaches. Yes. For clarification, for thought provoking reasons…to find what resonates with you, for you. Your spirit is at work through this process of finding your truths…and what settles in your heart and soul.

We are working Spirit to spirit in this work.

If you feel we are going too deep with this information right now…trust that feeling. Perhaps take a break…find what works for you… That is the soul’s journey…

And there is much to digest…

As Spirit we have many versions of the journey at your fingertips. With all who share, why does it seem there are so many versions that do not agree with what we are going to share? It is so confusing, you might say. Yes…but does that make you want or need to go deeper, find what feels right or makes more sense than the last version? That is part of your soul’s journey to seek and find…

Sara has had over twenty years of different views on life and death, the afterlife, and spirituality to decipher. It is an evolving process that Spirit puts forth to you, for you…as the demanding need to understand pushes you to learn more….as your awareness grows.

We start with your soul.

Everyone in a human body has a soul. It is the cumulative knowing part of you. It holds every experience from every lifetime ever lived.

The soul exists deep within the body…never seen…but vital to the life you are living. You might be familiar with the term Akashic records…which has been known to be the history of every lifetime, held in a library of sorts in Heaven/Spirit. These “records” truly are the soul’s work, to hold every lifetime of the human experience within, to have that inner memory of who you have been and where you are going readily available as you live each day.  These “records”  are actually within each of you…in your soul.

  Deja vu moments? A memory from the past, or sensing you have been “there” before? Where do those come from? You feel it, knowing something deeper is at work!  Yes, your soul bringing that memory forth….for the experience and deeper meaning…to create the question of “How did that happen?!”  You are left questioning…yet enthralled…and wondering. Your incredible soul at work!

The soul within everyone in a human body also holds the soul planned lifetime you are now experiencing. The plan you created before birth with your children, loved ones, family, friends, acquaintances, the store clerk, teacher…and more…for the experiences that will change you, teach you, break you open with a death you could never have imagined…for answers, clarity, deeper love, understanding, awareness, hope, peace, growth, collateral beauty, silver linings….and everything in between.

As Spirit, we will continue this spiritual class of sorts…and invite you to leave your comments and questions on the blog, We will answer, with Sara…

As we encouraged you to check the Comments section last week…reading the questions and answers can be an aspect of your continuing education!

Much love always!

Sara, Scott/Spirit/your children/loved ones

    Dear Sara,
    Why are some of us chosen for such painful experiences (such as losing our children) and others live a lifetime with relatively minor events? There does not seem to be an equality or fairness to these lessons that we are called upon to learn.
    Thank you to both Scott and Sara for clarity, Sue

      An important question…that everyone one of us has most likely asked Sue. So, how can we see this in a new way? That is why we are doing this blog. We all need clarity in this incredible confusion.

      It is through the soul planning…done in ways that seem incredibly hard to believe…from our human perspective, that every life and death is planned. Every life and every lifetime is deeply valued by Spirit. So much so that we will take on the pain, confusion, missing and depth of grief…as we make these plans. We are not chosen for this path…we made the plans…with our children and loved ones…for growth for the soul and so much more.

      We will go into greater depth for this question Sue…in next week’s blog and beyond. I want to add what Rita, a mom, shared here last week ~

      “My spiritual life coach said it was in mine & my son’s life plan & my response was “I know I would not have planned this pain!!!” So his question was did you love him and say many times you would do ANYTHING for him. After much thought I realized that I did love him enough to plan this for which ever one of us needed it. It helped me give up some of the overwhelming anger that I was carrying. I am 5 years old, as how I say how long my son has been crossed to the other side of the veil.” Thank you Rita… xoxo

    Was my sons (2) deaths a Karmic debt that I owed the universe? I have always gone by the thought that what goes around,comes around. I’ve had a pretty wild life, but nothing that would warrant both my sons dying so young and before me. Was it a past life that needed retribution? I am so thrown by their deaths. All that I ever believed in or thought, has been completely been thrown out the window.
    I am so confused . And totally lost as how I am supposed to carry on with life.

      Dear Cecilia… Such hard questions… Our human perspectives vs. Spiritual work

      We do come into each life for spiritual work, balancing past lives, creating for this lifetime and future lives…all unknowns to us in many ways.
      As far as Karmic debt? Being paid back for your “…pretty wild life?” There is no blame in Spirit. Everything that occurs in a lifetime…was soul planned and incredibly purposeful… In our humanness, we try to figure out WHY, but we only have a portion of the big picture and what is being created. We plan our lives with unconditional love in Spirit, knowing we are working together on spiritual growth and awareness…and the knowing we will come back together in future lifetimes. We need the human experiences to see more. Trust your journey has great meaning, not only for you, but for your boys…and the greater good. I know you feel lost, but you are asking important questions here Cecilia. You are doing your powerful spiritual work even today. xoxo

        Thank you for words of wisdom. I will try to remember I am a “spiritual being” thinking with my human mind. We are taught , from the very beginning of our lives to think rationally, and act rationally. Which serves us well until tragedy strikes , in the form of the death or deaths of our children or anyone that we’ve loved deeply. The idea that I actually planned this pain was a hard sell….until I read your response. In my “humanness” I have been trying to make sense of my sons deaths, I have been trying my hardest to rationalize it. Which you know I didn’t or couldn’t get anywhere close to an answer. I am so grateful to you , your son, and Spirit . Thank you for this lesson.

          This is a big step into greater awareness Cecilia… When something resonates so quickly, trust you were ready to read it. This is a struggle…and when you cross into that new thinking it begins to change the old views we have held onto. That is what this journey holds for us…until we are ready. Please stay with us… I know there will be more for you… xoxo

    Dear Sara, I lost both my sons. Tommy will be 4 years March 29th and Billy was 1 year on Feb. 25th. I do find comfort in knowing that we don’t die and that they are Happy in the Afterlife. That doesn’t mean that I don’t grieve for them as I know you must for your son. I just wanted to Thank you for all you do and the help you give. Peace and Love to you, Annette

      Thank you for sharing Annette… Knowing we don’t die and our children in Spirit are all they possibly can be in the Afterlife has always brought me great peace of mind too. I hope Scott/Spirit’s reassurance will continue to help you. xoxo

    I think I was meant to read this today
    I just listened to a video by Elizabeth Robinson talking about soul books. Kinda not sure at the time if I believed that , but you have reinforced today. Our son returned home 5 months ago unexpectedly—although I now know it was planned by our soul group . This realization is truly a gift pulling me through my grief to the other side.
    Thank you for your words ❤️

      The synchronicities in grief are some of our best teachers Sherry! We cannot make them happen… Spirit provides each one as needed… They may totally surprise us…and are always intended to resonate deeply. Thank you for sharing your experience today. You are doing amazing spiritual work… xoxo

    So comforting each time I read your blog, and the responses, I’ve worked so hard to heal, reading, meditating, searching for answers, sad that I’ve had “several christians” call me a devil worshiper for believing all this nonsense, Yes, oh Yes I believe, I’ve had too many signs, So why do so many religious institutions want to condemn those of us who believe with all of being that we don’t die, and all the dead arent waiting for the day to come back??? I believe we have the right to believe what we want and not be condemned cause it’s a different belief, what does spirit feel about this?? I too am a Christian trying to do the right thing in this life

      Thank you, Stephanie, for being so open about these experiences you are having…I know you are not the only one.

      As you know, we all begin walking a very new path the second we know our child…as we knew them, left this earth… So many emotions swirl around us and through us. No one can know how deeply changed we are…except perhaps another mom.

      As we learn in soul planning…we plan this life with hundreds, thousands of experiences to create and learn from. Create? Yes…in every aspect of our lives…and especially when that something is death. You planned this, as I did, as every reader here…and everyone whose child has died. Many will never believe our children come to us in the most extraordinary and surprising ways…out of their love and commitment to us. But our hearts know…so deeply it’s a soul knowing. Be you Stephanie. Be you and continue doing the right things. There is an inner strength within that will support you… I see it… xoxo

    This really touched me….I know I am going to have to go back and read it a number of times so I can take it all in….But the Deja vu moments really stuck out to me…..I have often had these moments at different times in my life….I think I didn’t take in the full meaning of it, it just happens…..Maybe my soul is trying to share past lives with me?? To me that is a wonderful thought…..
    Right now I’m having a little trouble keeping my thoughts straight….My son passed 17 months ago Monday the 26th….I have kept a storage unit he has for his daughter all this time…She is 18 and needs to find the space to put his things….So on the 25th my other son and his wife and son are bringing her to my house to go to this unit and go through it…sort it and get it ready for when she can have space for it….I am panicking, as silly as that sounds….I went over there and stood in this space and cried and touched his things and asked him to help me get through this for my kids, cause I know it is going to be a very emotional time….I miss you so much Howard….Sara, if Scott or you or Howard can give me any advice how to get through this I would be grateful…..I need to go back and read through all of Spirit Teaches…..Seems like every time I read it I gain something more from it…..Thank you for all you do…..Much love to you, Scott and Howard, and all the rest…..

      One important day after another Char…you are seeing more. This grief journey is so complex…and at the same time so beautifully meaningful. Every experience will show you something you hadn’t known, didn’t want to know…or everything in between…opening you up to being more ready for the next day. I love your commitment to everything you shared here. You are being pushed by your soul and Howard. Trust the journey, his presence. Look for the signs… You are not alone. His love is all around… xoxo

    Thank you Sara, yes, everything you and Scott have taught us all I feel,, I have gained much strength from your blogs, and my goodness, YES until someone walks in our shoes as grieving moms, they couldn’t in a million lifetimes understand the yearning we have to connect with our child, I try not to judge, no one knows what anyone is going through, I thank you both from the bottom of my heart that you are not afraid to share the things Scott/Spirit is showing you, and helping us all on our journey

      You are walking the walk Stephanie…and here we know how courageous that is. We will all learn more about ourselves, we must. The soul journey is one that doesn’t always treat us with kid gloves…even though everything is done in Spirit’s love. These challenges grow us, bring greater awareness in the process…forcing us in many ways to let go of old thinking…for the new. This is a good place to learn…
      Thank you so much for sharing… xoxo

    Hi Sara I started this journey 39 months as my only child age 22 died suddenly. I knew very little about death. It did not touch me in my life
    I have grown in my faith and knowledge. Of God/ love. Spirit of my dear Nick and belief in the transition rather than cold hard death
    Struggling with my life at 60 I know through this I want to carry on with the message to help others
    And myself Your pain and teaching, others has opened my eyes and heart as it wants to slam shut
    And die . Continuing on I find I don’t belong with others and try to fit in. I will always long for my son, need solitude to live and heal I have become insecure as I don’t fit. So I am learning that this is a path that is mine and there will be those who will be on it and others not which pains me and I am trying to find a way to accept this rather than judge myself for not being included. I’m not sure if this makes sense
    I do know from the time I read your words, opening to spiritual love and healing I have found my soul is comforted
    Thank you. I hope to carry this on in my novice way to soothe others. You/ Scott / God / Nick are teaching me every day. Peace

      Dear Roselyn…Everything you wrote makes sense. I understand the isolation and the need for solitude as well. Know you not alone in these feelings. I present a workshop at The Compassionate Friends Conference titled the Sole/Soul Journey…because it is a sole journey only we can take…finding our own truths and what helps us…as we grow to understand the soul journey.

      Grief is so complex and demanding…especially when you don’t always have the energy or know the path. It was a struggle for me and I know for many, many others. Trust me, you are learning…you are moving into greater awareness…one day at a time…even when can’t you feel that. Please continue reading, searching out, finding answers and what resonates with you. I’m glad you are here with us…and you are sharing with me.
      Love to you. xoxo

    Sarah,
    What you say makes 100% sense to me and though I am a Christian, I have long been open to such messages from spirit because my beloved gran saw spirit and I’ve also had a couple of dreams which I later realised were predictive of events in the future, as well as a visitation dream from my son.
    Synchronicities and signs around his death have given me much peace within my grief, so I know there is a great deal more than just this life.
    But how does one convince a grieving spouse that they are not being punished & that there are signs from their son that they can take solace from?
    How do you tackle the problem of a brother who has been told by their part-time pastor teacher that believing in spirit is mumbo jumbo and that the spirit will “sleep” until the Resurrection? Honestly, like Stephanie Robinson above, it frustrates me coming up against these rigid attitudes because I feel they would both gain so much peace from this valuable knowledge.

      Dear Janine,
      It is a challenge to know what you know…and not be able to be open with those around you. As we shared with Stephanie, this is your journey. It is designed for you to find your voice, your truths, new beliefs…and in that comes a courage that will show you the way. We are tested by others…always soul planned…to confirm our own knowing.
      Just as your husband is not able to see what you are…the lesson comes in allowing him to be where he is. Men and women, husbands and wives, more often than not…grieve differently. If you husband’s soul journey takes him to the signs and messages, showing him something he cannot deny…your son is helping/pushing him to see more. In the meantime…respond or share as you need to…and know you are supported by your son/Spirit. Your son knows your husband’s journey too…

      Truly Janine, it is all dependent on what we individually need to learn on this journey. Try to remember…we all signed up for the challenges in our soul planning…knowing how and why we need to grow in awareness. Whatever is needed will come to fruition. Trust the journey to show you more. xoxo

    Hi Sara/Scott, I have always believed in God but I could never understand why God let little children dies and or suffer. I struggled with this for many years. When my grandson died I began reading anything I could to try and understand why this happened and found your blog on soul planning. I believe my grandson led me to you and so many others who have helped me tremendously in my journey. Soul planning is the only thing that makes sense to me and actually gives me comfort. The love that connects me to Matthews spirit had to be soul planned and I will continue to read your blog and hopefully be able to help someone on their journey. Love is what connects all of us. Matthews journey on this earth was over and his soul is with me all the time. Thanks to you and Scott I am able to move forward. Much love, carolyn

      You speak for so many as we find our footing in this new reality Carolyn. It is about letting go. Letting go…and going into the new… It is very hard when we have so much love and often uncontrolled emotions surrounding this whole experience of death/grief/mystery.
      Thank you for sharing…as you open the door to your soul planning and greater spiritual awareness. We will continue to share too! xoxo

    I am re-reading your blog and the comments. First, I had just tuned into the ending of “Collateral Beauty” and then read your blog and you mentioned collateral beauty. Can you explain this more? It’s the blessings that come from, or out of, the tragedy, right? Also, both Cecelia and Annette have both lost 2 sons, as have I. Some days are so hard. My husband has wanted to go out to eat on holidays but I miss doing it at home. It’s like another loss. A mother dream dashed( the future holiday celebrations with a big family) and I don’t have the energy to insist on cooking. One more thing- I wonder about solitude. I am extremely lucky to have all this down time at work ( I am a live-in caregiver for an elderly man and we rarely leave his house or have visitors) but I’m thinking it’s too much solitude and it is exacerbating my depression.

      Dear Sarah… Collateral beauty really became more well known to most of us through that exceptional Will Smith movie! It can be compared in many ways to “silver linings” that emerge in times of uncertainty, grief, pain and more. When we are suffering or confused and feel life is unfair or cannot get any better…how often are we surprised by something so beautiful, meaningful, or caring that we could not have seen coming. Those needed moments bring balance to the chaos or situation any of us humans may be experiencing. I love the term!
      As far as the time you spend in solitude Sarah, it is very important and healthy to find balance on this journey. Hopefully you can find something to balance the alone time (which is needed too)…since you are aware of it. Now you have another job…finding what that is! 🙂 xoxo
