Life is About the Journey: Destiny and Life Planning

Feb 16, 2015 | Reincarnation, Science and Metaphysics, Spirit

In a previous blog post, I discussed fate vs. free will and how destiny works in the context of what we think of as “free will.”

Today I wanted to delve a little more into the fate part of that discussion and give you a better picture of life planning as I understand it and how free will affects that life plan.

What is life planning?

Life planning is the process of choosing the details of what your life will look like before you incarnate. Michael Newton’s book Journey of Souls gives great details about what that process looks like from the other side.

Where people tend to get confused with life planning is attaching the emotions of the events that are chosen and associating them with the events themselves. For example, if they’ve lead a difficult life, they believe that their soul chose to suffer.

Not so! You could have reacted to those events in a myriad of ways. It’s when you react negatively and you attach to those emotions that you suffer.

Life planning is simply choosing the events, circumstances and the people which will provide the context of your experience in your life. The backdrop for the play, so to speak.


Choose Your Own Adventure

The best analogy I can give for a life plan is for you to look at it like a map.

Let’s say your life from start to finish is the analogous equivalent of a map of the united states. You’re starting at point A in New York (your birth) and ending at point B in California (your transition).

Every possible road you can take is written on that map. Some of the roads are very treacherous. Some of them are exceptionally scenic, but the long way around. Some are shortcuts and some are all highway.

Regardless of which path you choose, it’s all on the map.

Nexus Points

Nexus points might be what we’d refer to as your destiny. They are events within your life – whether it’s something happening, or you meeting a certain person – which your soul said, “I will for sure experience this.”

Consider, on your trip from New York to California, you are supposed to stop through Denver (your nexus point). You might try to take a different route and avoid Denver, but guess what? There’s going to be some construction and it’s going to take you on a detour through Denver, no matter which way you go.

The entire point of your life is the journey, not the destination.

This is why I continue to believe that you can’t make a mistake in this life. Stop worrying about it! Whatever you are meant to experience will come to pass. Trust in the universe and make it so.

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.
