In a recent video, Kristin Kirk responds to a question about subtle guides. Are my guides Me?
We have to be careful not to get caught up in concepts of what we’re supposed to experience and instead, look to the reality of what is here now for us. Kristin makes the key point that the experience depends on where you are looking from, then uses good examples. From the trunk of the tree (closer to source), we are one with all beings. From further up into the branches, we are distinct with our own vibration and a specific sequence of unfolding lives, unique to this soul. In diversity, we differ from any other being. Both perspectives are valid simultaneously.
There are several ways we might relate to the soul sequence. People have often asked how I know these were “my” past lives and not just random group memories. Kristin spoke of recognition through vibration or feel. Here, the sequence of unfolding was recognized more through memory and visuals, then the threads of connection between the lives. The lives could be experienced as concurrent and whole and also as a sequence of unfolding.
I would also add that if this arena is new for you, you need to discriminate kinds of subtle beings. Beings made of light or energy have some or a lot of control over their appearance. We should not assume subtle means pure. Looking important or offering a fancy name means little. Follow the same rules for meeting any stranger. Notice how they feel. This will help discriminate the troublemakers from the wanna-bes and the true helpers. Once you’re familiar with both divine and astral beings, you’ll have a much better sense of this.
