Recently, I was having a chat with some people about the ‘I AM’, and they asked, what I thought was, a very pertinent question. Although conceptually they understood the difference between ‘I AM’ and I, they wondered how they know that practically speaking, in their everyday lives, they are respecting the needs of ‘I AM’ as opposed to ‘I’. Our ensuing discussion, I thought, made a compelling blog.
‘I AM’ is the seat of Divine within us, our eternal self. ‘I’ is our superfluous Ego state, our current self. Though short in terms of distance, the journey from ‘I’ to ‘I AM’ can be some of the longest journeys that we choose to embark on.
How do we know if we are embracing and working from ‘I AM’ rather than ‘I’?
In fact, moving from ‘I’ to ‘I AM’ is a matter of realising the difference and shifting subtle perspective. I am sure that the majority of us actually are subconsciously aware of the difference of working from ‘I AM’ and ‘I’. However, whether we consciously want to make that shift is a choice – our choice. When we are comfortable in the ‘I’ or Ego state, very few will make that leap.
My client came to me to get over thanatophobia, or a phobia of death. Second only to the phobia of public speaking, thanatophobia can be debilitating and basically comes about due to the fear of the unknown, fear of retribution or the fear of the end.
In order to overcome this fear, my client chose to visit multiple past lives over several sessions – some with very peaceful deaths, and so not so, to desensitize herself against dying. We also had a session in Between Lives Spiritual Regression just to learn about the soul’s journeys understand the eternal nature of the soul and that there is no such thing as judgement, retribution or punishment.
Reflecting on these sessions recently, the deep realisation that I came to is that ‘I AM’ is consciousness – not created, not destroyed. It just exists.
Vedic scriptures teach that ‘I AM’ is neither slain nor is reborn – ‘I AM’ is eternal, donning on different costumes of body and personality. Whilst death is a term that recognises an end of the physical, mental and perhaps even the emotional state, ‘I AM’ continues to exist as is. This is corroborated by countless Between Lives Spiritual Regression sessions, where clients remember the choosing of body and emotional and mental energy that they wish to learn from whilst incarnated.
Incarnation is just the temporary physical manifestation of ‘I AM’ at that specific point in time. At death, ‘I AM’ sheds the physical, mental and emotional and continues to exist.
‘I AM’ is eternal.
What these series of sessions also helped me realise is that there is no such thing as young souls vs old souls, advanced souls vs beginner souls. Hierarchy is a creation of the Ego State. When the Ego State ceases to exist, so to does hierarchy.
There is no hierarchy or separation with ‘I AM’.
‘I AM’ just is; and we are all on our individual journeys.
Through regression, I have experienced for myself, and facilitated, regressions to the loftiest of lives as kings, queens, priestesses and teachers, as well as the simplest of lives of everyday people. In my experience, no one life is more powerful than another, no one soul more important than another. Each soul is an important thread in the glorious tapestry of All. Without one thread, the entire tapestry risks unravelling.
Every individual ‘I AM’ Consciousness makes a significant contribution in the greater Collective Consciousness.
What contribution we choose to make is up to our individual free will.
What this has taught me is that there is no soul in incarnation that is more or less important than another. Our entire Being is equal. The fact that we are of different socio-economic status, speak a different language or a different species even does not preclude inequality in the form of thought, behaviour or action.
‘I AM’ is equal.
Life then becomes a Blissful expression of pure ‘I AM’ consciousness.
