Memories - Part TwoMy own life has taught me that, for a long time, we are unaware of how the qualities of zodiac’s signs and houses are constantly influencing us, without us having any idea that this is happening to us. That’s what attracted me to astrology in the first place, many years ago when a man by the name of Wilfred was recommended to me as a good astrologer. I was not particularly interested in the subject, but thought why not ask him to do your birthchart?
He did not know anything about me, apart from my name and my birth details. I later found out that my birthtime was a different one. We had met and spoken for about ten minutes only. Yet, when his birthchart interpretation arrived, I was amazed about the things he was telling me about myself. Many of what he said I really did, but was not aware of doing so. How could the man know so much about me? It intrigued me so much that, when shortly after he announced that he was going to do some teaching, I was one of the first to enrol.
By now I know that in the right hands astrology can be turned into one of the best life-helps imaginable. I have never been interested in using it as a fortunetelling instrument. I prefer to trust that, if we send nothing but that which is good, right and beautiful into our world, nothing but more of the same can return to us in due course, as soon as we have redeemed our existing karmic debts.
My main interest in the Divine science is using it as applied psychology and how the planetary energies influence us and our lives. First in broad outlines that are based on our birthchart, and second the progressions of the Moon and the Sun. Undoubtedly, astrology can do the same for you. I find it particularly helpful when it comes to healing difficult relationships with anyone who has departed from this plane before me. Should you feel like having a go at it and becoming a bit of your own astrologer, please follow the relevant links at the end of this chapter.
How about entering into a dialogue with anyone who has hurt and wounded you, something along these lines: ‘When I was suffering at your hands, I was unaware that life is not a one-off thing, but a long drawn out evolutionary journey of many lifetimes. That’s why both of us could get so utterly lost in the roles we once played. So, I forgive myself for not knowing that the experiences we shared served a wise higher purpose and that I was the one who created the necessity for them in previous lifetimes. I forgive you for what you did to me. I also hope that you will forgive me for having been the cause of the new karmic debts your behaviour towards me created in your spiritual account.
‘With the knowledge both of us have found by now, there is no point in letting anything come between us any longer. That, at last, sets us free to love each other, the way both of us probably always wanted to, but somehow could not for as long as you were still with me, on this side of the veil that separates our two worlds.’
The spirit realm is by no means somewhere ‘up or out there’. It is the inner spiritual plane of the outer physical world. Everything that exists here could not do so without first having been created on the inner plane, which is invisible to earthly eyes. We are the outer and they are the inner manifestation of the same world. And the periods we spend from time to time on the inner plane provides us with the greater freedom of being able to move around without the hindrance of a physical body that is so easily hurt and wounded.
Each time we leave the physical plane, the only thing we can take with us is that which we have learned, in the course of our most recent lifetime, as well as all previous ones. That’s the only thing that truly belongs to us; it’s ours to keep in all Eternity. And on every occasion our spirit/soul slips away from the physical world, the earthly personality we have developed up to that point is safely stored in our soul memories. From there it accompanies us into our next lifetime, when our earthly education continues.
Our spiritual bank account at any given time consists of credit and debit entries. Credits make all coming earthly lifetimes easier to cope with. the debits of our karmic debts are going to weigh us down, but only until the last one of them has been redeemed. I find it comforting that even this they can do only for a while, because everything that happens on our plane is but a passing phase. That’s why there really is no need for running away from anything that’s too painful to remember. For the wise higher reason that eventually everything has to be confronted and dealt with, trying to forget anything is impossible.
Nothing is more helpful here than a better understanding of the purpose and meaning of our earthly existence. This knowledge can provide us with the solution for any problem that comes our way. It empowers us to stop avoiding memories of painful and traumatic experiences and instead give thanks and praise to God and the Angels for their love and wisdom is providing us with opportunities for the redemption of all our karmic debts, even the most ancient ones.
