Why so much brutality?

Why so much brutality?

I recently asked readers to send me questions they would like answered. Thanks to those who responded. Please feel free to send me questions at any time. Here is a question on an issue that I think puzzles many people. My answers are based on the information we have received from Higher Consciousness Beings who inform us during the regressions.

Q: It appears that unconditional love is the highest spiritual aspiration. Yet we live in a world in which each creature, plant, insect, animal and human is subjected to larger predatory adversaries – the survival of the fittest.  It can be quite brutal, with no apparent love operating. I don’t understand it at all.

A: We are all One (the Source) and in our highest form, we are love. Somewhere, sometime, somehow, in our highest form, we separated parts of the One from the whole. Why? To experience and expand. In other words, to play games of separation.

We have learnt that in various dimensions, places and planets, many games of separation are taking place. There is the game that ants and bees play. Each is physically separate from the whole but retain a strong non-physical connection. Flocks of birds that all turn together uniformly in the sky are playing a version of this game too.

Earth is a place where we humans are playing a game of extreme separation. We arrive, newborn, on the planet with little or no memory of who we really are. This amnesia is a condition of coming to Earth. And amnesia is the genesis of the brutality of which you speak.

With no memory of who we really are, we believe we are only physical beings. We think we are alone and totally responsible for our own safety and that of our tribe. We notice that others like us can die so we fear our annihilation. We don’t want to die so we fight to survive.

Animals have this survival instinct too. But they have more grace than humans, probably retaining some sense of a ‘home’ somewhere beyond the physical. They surrender to death, once it is inevitable. They don’t fight death like many humans do.

Fighting inevitable death is a great problem on our planet. The individual does not pass over completely, instead leaving some energy still focussed on the physical. During the regressions, we rescue energies trapped from past lives. This is usually a great relief to the client who was carrying this old negative energy, experienced as an extraordinary deep fear of death. Clients feel more peaceful and safer after the release.

Love is a part of this release. We connect with the lost and fearful parts of ourselves with love. We reconnect and then release the fear.

Love is the glue that holds us together while we are playing the game of separation. During the regressions, many clients are given a taste of complete connection. They are filled with unconditional love. It is a feeling of fulfilling connection, we call the Oneness. This is given as a reminder of who we really are.

The game of separation does have a goal or a purpose. It is a game of evolving, expanding and growing wise from experience. On Earth, we incarnate many times, usually having thousands of lives.

In the beginning, we might retain some sense of where we came from. Over time this dissipates and we become completely immersed in the physical, believing that is all we are. In this state, we view ourselves as completely separate from others. We will do anything to survive, and our thinking can be distorted in many dark ways. We may kill, rape and torture and we experience the same being done to us. This is the game of extreme separation. We hate all vulnerability, in ourselves and in others. We can be stuck in this place for a thousand or more Earth years. Eventually, at the soul level, we plan our return to connection. Some of the most moving past lives are these lives of turning back to connection and redemption.

As you can imagine, remembering the damage you have done in your past lives is very challenging. Now we really suffer. Before when we were extremely separated we were shut down emotionally and physically. We were numb. Now we begin the unfreezing, and wow, does it hurt!

But with this hurt comes much understanding, forgiveness and eventually wisdom. We remember who we are as we climb back through many more lives, gradually reconnecting, slowly learning to love and accept ourselves and others just as we are.

Now we really understand what it is like to be lost and disconnected. This contrasting experience brings a new and deep appreciation for feeling love and connection.

Can you see that as you learn to love and accept yourself, all your past lives—both dark and light, you are also learning to love others? Love of self and love of others is actually the same thing. When you stop judging yourself, you stop judging others. You feel compassion for yourself and you feel compassion for others—no matter how dark or lost they currently are.

This long sojourn of incarnating on Earth culminates in being a greatly expanded soul who is wise, compassionate and loving.

Do we then go back to Source? The truth is we never left Source. We only thought we did. We are always connected and part of the whole whether we know it or not.

If this blog brings up any questions for you, please let me know. I would love to help expand your understanding.


How do you cope with innocent people dying?

How do you cope with innocent people dying?


If you are someone who hates injustice, you are likely to frequently see innocent people dying. Just turning on the news will do it.

You probably felt disturbed and much compassion towards the people trapped in Grenfell Tower in London as it burned. They died because the cladding on the building was unsafe, suggesting someone put profit ahead of people’s safety. Even if the culprits are punished it does not bring back the seventy-nine people who died.

If you look at a snippet of this tragedy, you are likely to feel angry. For example, one thirteen-year-old sent a text to her friend before being engulfed. ‘We are not going to make it. I love you.”  You cannot easily feel at peace with this if you take the short view. This young girl lost her life just when it was about to really begin. How can you find justice in that?

We cannot know anything deeper about this girl, but we can look at what Newton Institute practitioners are finding all around the world as they take tens of thousands of people into their past lives and life between lives. They and their clients discover there are reasons why people die and have short lives. Here are some of those reasons:

People lose a loved one because they are learning how to deal with loss. For example, one woman lost her first child to a miscarriage. Then she lost her father to a heart attack not more than a year before losing her mother to cancer. She had dreams of losing her mother when she was much younger so that prepared her to some degree. Of all her losses, she coped best with the last. Because of the dream, she had made sure she cherished her mother while she was still alive. In the regression, she met her deceased parents and was told she was doing well with her life’s purpose, which was dealing with loss.

People lose loved ones to develop compassion. One client lost her child in a past life in the early nineteenth century. She was so devastated that she never recovered, shutting people out of her life. She had been shut down emotionally for many lifetimes, carrying a strong self-protective energy. The loss of her child opened her up emotionally. This shift carried over to her current life where she is gradually softening and learning to be more compassionate.

People also lose loved ones through suicide. In part, this can be about family members learning the lessons outlined above but more likely a person suicides because she or he is struggling with the demands of being physical in this hard school that is the Earth system. In the Afterlife, they can be exposed to the pain suffered by those they left behind. That can be enough to turn them away from suicide in a subsequent life. But some have a habit of leaving when the going gets tough. If this habit is not broken, next time they might get sick and die or have a fatal accident when life is difficult.

We have discovered some principles about death:

  • No one dies without agreeing to their death, either at the soul level before they incarnated or at the physical level when they are incarnated.
  • Once they have let go of physicality, death is beautiful. They feel relief, peace and happiness.
  • Those who leave early to help others grow are having what we call a ’gift life.’ Their main purpose in that life is for others evolution, not their own.
  • Loved ones pass but their love for us and our love for them is unchanged. In many ways, they are still with us.

Once you deeply understand that our lives and our deaths are purposeful, dealing with loss can be a little easier. You still need to grieve, but eventually you might be able to move past the shock and horror to see the larger perspective, accepting that there is order in our universe. Nothing happens without a reason.
