A Great Shift in Consciousness

8 Oct

As I describe in my new book Your Soul’s Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born, a great shift in consciousness is now occurring on our planet. This shift depends completely upon those of us who are in body to raise our vibration, which means, quite simply, being the most loving people we can be. As we raise our vibration, Earth rises in vibration as well. Spirit guides, angels, loved ones, and others in the nonphysical realm can send love, wisdom, light, and inspiration to us, but we must receive and embody these gifts. The nonphysical beings who love and guide us cannot create a shift in human consciousness for us.

Victim consciousness—the belief that you have been victimized by a person, experience, or life in general—vibrates at a very low frequency. When we understand that we are the powerful creators of all we experience—even if we may not know how or why we created something—we move out of victim consciousness, raise our vibration, and, in turn, raise the vibration of Earth. If your intention is to contribute to the shift in human consciousness, know that moving out of victim mentality is a powerful and magnificent way to do so.

Victim consciousness is a false belief, one that has become part of our limited, habitual way of thinking. It has tempting secondary benefits: it’s a way to obtain sympathy from others and a means of bonding with others who also believe themselves to be victims. Victim consciousness and its secondary benefits are not to be judged, though. After all, it’s easy to believe what we have been taught, and natural to want support from, and bonding with, others. My intent is not to judge the choice to perceive ourselves as victims, but rather to clarify that it is a choice. The alternate choice is to come into remembrance of our identity and power as expressions of the eternal souls that planned the lives we now live, to know ourselves as the creators, not the victims, of our experiences. This awareness uplifts the entire world.

Victim consciousness tends to be self-perpetuating. If you believe yourself to be a victim, you vibrate at the frequency of victim and energetically draw to yourself experiences that will confirm in your mind that you are a victim. One key to breaking this cycle is to release blame, for blame places you vibrationally at the frequency of victim consciousness. We may more easily release blame when we take responsibility for having agreed to our life plans, and the personal stories of pre-birth planning in Your Soul’s Gift are intended to help you do just that.. Such self-responsibility is the fertile ground in which expanded consciousness and self-knowledge blossom.

Like victim consciousness, judgment resonates at a very low frequency. Judgment creates separation, separation creates fear, and fear creates most of the problems in our world. The current shift in human consciousness is in part a return to Oneness or unity consciousness, which is our natural state of being in our nonphysical Home. We cannot return to this state of Oneness consciousness if we are in judgment of, and therefore separate from, one another. An awareness of pre-birth planning makes it easier to release judgment of others, for then we come to realize that every life plan is birthed in love and founded on wisdom.

Society reserves particularly harsh judgments for people who have certain experiences such as homelessness, alcoholism, drug addiction, and AIDS: “She needs to get her act together,” “He isn’t really trying,” “She’s weak,” and “He needs to pull himself up by his bootstraps.” The judgments of people who have AIDS are particularly harsh: “He must have been promiscuous,” “She deserves it,” and “AIDS is God’s way of punishing homosexuals for being homosexuals.” Yet, in truth these experiences are planned before birth, and they are plans of boldness, plans many would not dare to undertake. When we understand pre-birth planning, our judgments evaporate and are replaced by an abiding respect and admiration for the courageous souls who face such challenges.

Judgment may, however, be a useful tool for gaining insight into your life plan. Ask yourself, “What trait do I judge most harshly in the people who are in my life?” Then ask, “What is the opposite of that trait?” In all likelihood, before you were born you wanted to develop and express that opposite quality. In regard to the trait you have judged in someone else, it is likely you had that trait in a past life, and it is certain you have that trait (to some degree) now. All judgment of others is cloaked self-judgment. If you did not have the trait you judge, you would either be unable to recognize it in another or you would not judge it if you did see it.

Because what we experience outside ourselves is always a projection of our inner reality, it is not possible for us to be in nonjudgment of another until we are wholly in nonjudgment of ourselves. Speaking nonjudgmental words and engaging in nonjudgmental actions are not indicators of being in nonjudgment. The one true indicator of nonjudgment is how we experience ourselves, for that is how we truly experience others.

Care must be taken here not to go into judgment of judgment. Although none of us enjoys being judged, we chose for good reason to incarnate in a time in human evolution in which judgment is commonplace. Simply put, judgment is a powerful teacher for us, and some of us learn best through the experience of being judged. That experience is an effective means by which to develop empathy, compassion, and many other divine virtues. The lives we plan before we are born are opportunities to develop and express such virtues.

    Thank you, you directly addressed a question that had been troubling me. (Which had to do with giving up victim mentality when it seemed to help one connect to other victims.)

      I have great admiration for your work, but the endless suffering and grief that I have been undergoing in this life makes me wonder as to why did I opt for all this? Was I in senses.Tell us more about the reasons for planning such a horribly painful life.I will be grateful, if you replied.I am already registered with your site.Thanks and regards.

        Thank you for your very good question. The main reasons for planning life challenges are balancing karma, healing, service to others, experiencing contrast, and correcting feelings or beliefs about oneself that the soul knows to be untrue. These are explained in detail in my books. In regard to your own life, you could ask Spirit in a Between Lives Soul Regression why you planned certain experiences. Please visit my web site for details about this type of regression.
        With love,

        I am quite interested in the question of which actions produce bad carma and which do not, should you ever want to address that in another book. 😉

    Thank you for providing clarity as to why we harshly judge a trait found in another. Its opposite is what we are striving for in this life. Brilliant!

    I really liked the reference “All judgment of others is cloaked self-judgment”. Usually it’s something I don’t like about myself that I see in someone else. I am so glad I have learned this lesson. Thanks Robert!
    Not really a believer in past lives, but I keep an open mind and try my best to be present in the here and now.

    Thank you! I’ve posted several articles on aspects of this subject. Like Jagi, though, your article came along just as I needed it. It’s helped me to remember how to deal with a current situation.

    I have just started reading your material and have your books on order. I have found you to be both genuine and intelligent. I know you mention in your interviews that you have done research to arrive at your conclusions about the structure and nature of the spirit realm. It resonates as a plausible explanation of the human condition and of man’s purpose. However, it strikes me that at least since the early Greeks, the most genuine and intelligent among us have been pursuing answers to the questions to which you now have answers. Did you ever research whether thinkers or others in prior historical epochs were ever able to uncover the level of detail that you have about the human condition and man’s purpose? I find that most of what you say squares with deep-level near death experiences reported by others. For example, Eben Alexander and Mary Neal. Most, if not all, of what you are saying would bring the great religions to an end because they all seek or purvey this information but in a much less detailed and satisfying way. My son the sceptic wants to know how you have come to know all of this information. I told him it was through personally working with mediums, channels and analysis of accounts of people who claim to have visited the spirit realm. I was wondering if there were other evidentiary materials. Thank you in advance for your kind reply.

      Dear Brien,

      Thank you for your kind words and very good question.

      I have not researched what thinkers in other historical periods uncovered. My research was done with mediums and channels, and now through the Between Lives Soul Regressions (BLSRs) that I offer in my practice. This is a form of hypnotic regression in which the client generally speaks at length with a spirit guide and/or the Council of Elders (who oversee the cycle of reincarnation on Earth).

      I hope this is helpful.

      With love and blessings,

    Thank you, such a thought provoking article that reminds us once more why we’re here and that we plan so many of our experiences ourselves.

    Hi Rob,
    Thanks for your books and your counsel. However, like Lajpat, sometimes I wonder why my soul decides to take on so many lessons in one lifetime….. and what happens if the body or mind cannot bear it all, and hence decides on committing suicide? (I know in many religions, taking one’s own life will lead to condemnation in hell.)

    Many times, I tried to shift away from the victim consciousness, using positive thoughts and prayers. It helps sometimes. But a few times in my life, when I was stricken with ill health or got into an accident, on top of being born with an abnormal body that does not recover well, the physical pain can be so MADDENING that no amount of shifting consciousness or positive thoughts helped ! At those moments, I actually felt it might be better to end my life.

    Pain-killers and tears seemed like temporary relief. What can we possibly learn, and re-learn about these physical states which we have no control over?

    • yoursoulsplan February 5, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

      Dear Valerie,

      You ask very important questions, questions I myself have asked at points in my life at which I, too, felt there was too much pain to bear.

      What I have learned in my work is that a lifetime, no matter how painful, is viewed very differently from our nonphysical Home. We know before incarnating that a lifetime is really very brief, here and gone like a clap of thunder. We also know that no one is permanently harmed by anything that happens here. Too, we know that the wisdom that comes from a lifetime will become part of the soul forever.

      I understand that it is difficult to have this perspective while in body. One very profound way to bring these knowings into body is to do a between lives regression. Whether you do it with me or someone else, it is a deeply healing and potentially life-changing experience. Clients emerge from a between lives regression and tell me, “I got an answer to every question I asked. I have no more questions about my life.” The understanding IS the healing.

      With love,

    Hello colleagues, pleasant paragraph and fastidious urging commented here, I am in fact enjoying by these.

    This is an incredibly powerful article, I am thankful for you sharing this enlightening stance. It resonates within me as true.

  12. Sharley Barnes July 17, 2014 at 2:10 am #

    Love to you Robert for sharing this information. It’s changed the way I see life for the better.

    Thank you

    Rob, your dedication to the meaning of our suffering and the avenues for healing is enlightening and very comforting. How many, on average, Earth sojourns are necessary before we can evolve to less painful, less compressed system of learning? Also, what is the eventual outcome for a GRADUATE of the Earth learning system?

    -Love you Rob, Thanks!

    • yoursoulsplan April 2, 2018 at 3:00 pm #

      Thank you for your kind words, Vince.

      I believe the average person has hundreds of incarnations on Earth. After “graduation” one goes on to a higher dimension, meaning a dimension that is at a higher frequency or vibration.

      All blessings to you.

      • Pam June 24, 2018 at 2:04 pm #

        Hi Rob

        I recently found out about you and would like to read your books. What would be the best book for me to start off with? I am fairly new to learning about all things spiritual.

        Also, is there anything we, as humans can do to speed up the “graduation” process so that we have as few incarnations on earth as possible? The reason I ask this question is because I’ve lived with a lot of emotional and physical pain, so I don’t like the thought of having to come back to earth again…

        Many thanks
        Pam xx

        Hi Pam,

        Thank you for your message.

        I suggest you start with Your Soul’s Plan, then move on to Your Soul’s Gift.

        The best way to speed the “graduation” process is simply to be the most loving person you can be. Focus on both giving AND receiving love. The other thing you can do is learn what you came here to learn. If you don’t know what that is, you can ask the Council of Elders in a Between Lives Soul Regression, which you may read about here:
