Is It Fate Calling You Or Your Destiny?
Just as the stars light up the sky, defining it spatially, every significant place you have ever been, emotionally and karmically, defines you, telling us who you are by where you have been. Through new experiences we are given the opportunity to learn and evolve but many of us defer to our old maps because we know the territory. When we do not learn from our experiences, and transcend them, we develop themes that create little eddies in the flow of our lifetimes, little black holes on our maps that draw us in, over and over again, until we have learned their lessons. When we are caught in these vortices our lives becomes dull and fated, as if we are caught on a hamster wheel, running but going nowhere. Our souls do not come through to repeat the same old tired dance steps, however, they are driven to evolve past who we have been, into who we are becoming. They come through with a purpose, they want to align with the highest destiny they can hold.
To be clear, fate is not destiny. Fate is the probable outcome of a life, based on events that have happened in the past. If you had an abusive childhood, for example, you may choose abusive friends and partners in the future; being in abusive relationships becomes your fate, it is the map you chase yourself around each day. The key coordinates on this map are the unresolved wounds, or imprints, of our past, the limiting beliefs we have created about ourselves as a result of them, and the coping mechanisms we crafted to live with them. Many of these anchor points we have even carried in from other lifetimes. Any Psychic can read from this map, telling you who you have been and what is likely in the future. It is that real. If you want to create a new one, however, you must do more that just look at the old one.
The shaman knows, for example, as does the nuclear physicist, that the future is probabilistic, not deterministic, or fated. The nuclear physicist realizes that until you make a measurement there is a range of possible locations for a given particle moving at the speed of light. The moment you measure it, however, you interfere with its trajectory, locking its position into an actual location, where it goes from being “probable” to becoming “real.” They call this collapsing the wave function. Shamans have worked with this principle from the beginning of time; they call it dreaming the world into being. They know that to “see” is to measure, and that this is the basis of all creation. Instead of reading your old tired map, and by seeing it, helping you recreate it yet again, the shaman empowers you to step outside fate and reach for a destiny instead. When we clear the karmic, ancestral and personal imprints from our lightbodies, we become available for an array of new, future probabilities that would not otherwise have been available to us. As they become visible upon our new horizons we can then dream them into being.
Our souls want more from their earthly experiences than just going through the process of survival. They want to experience joy, love and connection! They want to evolve past who we have been, into who we are becoming. What high destinies did you want for yourself before you were born? Where were you derailed? Step out of the fate your imprints have orchestrated for you and into choice. There are many possible destinies out there for each of us if we are just willing to recalibrate our maps. Claim them! Shoot for the stars! Dream big! Our future selves await us in a field of infinite possibilities.
