Many people today are discussing how they’re meeting each other and feeling as if they knew each other for a long time or in some distant past. My own sense of that is that, as we rise in dimensionality, the law of attraction is bringing members of our soul group together.
SaLuSa tells us that our incarnated lives are orchestrated as groups: “Naturally your plans are intertwined with other souls, and together you play out your roles to help each other move forward.” (1) “Every aspect of your lives is planned,” he informs us, “and you are each part of soul groups that come together with the purpose of gaining experience.” (2) That may leave us wondering where free will comes in. He explains:
“We hear some question where freewill comes in, but there would be no plan unless you exercised it prior to incarnating. Freewill is still your prerogative, but having agreed to a plan for your life you are drawn to those people and experiences that will help fulfil it. Your Guides are also very active in keeping you on track, but the final word is with you.” (3)
Frances Banks, speaking from the afterlife, tells us that we’re drawn together by the Law of Attraction: “The progressing entity is drawn by the Law of Attraction to a Group progressed to that stage which will express, for him, the intensity of awareness which he is now capable of receiving.” (4) She tells us that soul groups come together especially at times of great change. This age is undoubtedly one of those.
“Group Souls preside over universal movements, over great causes and thus members of one Spiritual Family are often attracted to each other by mutual interests, by a special life work, as well as by external links. They work together, may indeed share their lives in partnership, or may only meet occasionally as they work in some particular project.” (5)
The same soul group may come together repeatedly, SaLuSa tells us: “Often your situation has been one where soul mates or good friends have come together in many lives, as a continuance of your learning. Such meetings are often accompanied by an instant feeling of recognition, and even families frequently come together and strong bonds are always present.” (6)
When we reincarnate together, we assume appropriate roles that allow all of us to progress, even if we cease to be aware that we have, as SaLuSa reminds us: “Often there are groups of you that come together for that very purpose, and you help each other to progress. You play your parts fully immersed in the characters that you choose, and as far as you are concerned it is an absolute reality.” (7)
The coming together of the soul group will be the prime mechanism of our further evolution, SaLuSa says:
“When you become part of a group consciousness, then you shall benefit from every soul that is part of it. Sharing is a very spiritual gesture that comes with awakening to the Oneness of all life.” (8)
“You like us are evolving through group consciousness, and it will gradually embrace more and more souls who are recognizing the Oneness of All That Is.” (9)
The tendency to move forward in groups is built into us, Archangel Michael hints: “The Soul has a natural inclination toward group-consciousness. It is the Soul which seeks reunification, not the ego personality. Advancement on the path increases Soul consciousness and group awareness.” (10)
While our separativeness increases as we go deeper into density, as we climb higher, our unity and cohesion expand, as Frederic Myers explains from the afterlife. Our experience in the afterlife will be freer than it is in matter and so we need to make that allowance when reading Myers’ description.
“The higher the ego climbs on the ladder of consciousness, the nearer it draws to other kindred souls. I have already told you that there may be a thousand, a hundred, or merely twenty souls all fed by one spirit. Their consciousness of comrade-souls increases on the higher levels of existence.
“In time they are able to enter into the other souls’ memories, perceive their experiences and be sensible of them as if they were theirs. Mind becomes communal in the last stages, for the spirit, the unifying principle, is tending all the time to produce greater harmony, and therefore greater unity. These various individuals are merging more and more, becoming one in experience and in mind, and thus attaining to undreamt-of levels of intellectual power.” (11)
As we mount the ladder of dimensionality now, moving towards Ascension, the call to each other will grow stronger, Archangel Michael tells us.
“The call of reunification is beginning for many of you, whereby your refined Soul Song is reaching various members of your God Self. As you refine your vibrational patterns and your Energetic Signature reaches a certain level of harmony, your Soul Song will begin to reverberate out into and through the fourth, into the fifth and for some of you, possibly even into the sixth dimensions, and very gradually into the auric fields of some of the Soul Fragments of your Higher Self.
“Slowly, as these blessed facets of your Self become aware of you, they will begin the process of moving into alignment with you. Those whose resonance is lower than yours will fall into line below you, and those who are on the Path ahead of you will slowly move into the column of Light above you. You will also be moving laterally, as well as higher, into the refined realms as all of the fragments of your I AM Presence gradually begin the process of moving closer and closer to your central column of Divine Light.” (12)
In the afterlife as in material life, the urge to meld with the group increases especially after we reach the Fifth Dimension. Frederic Myers tells us.
“The spirit must gather a harvest of experience in every form. Gradually these intelligences evolve and merge. The experience necessary to the spirit is completed when all the souls necessary to the design have reached this Fifth plane. Once they become sensible of their oneness and their individuality they may go forward to the Sixth plane. There is, then, a breaking of the threads, a casting away of the dross of emotional experience, a sifting and changing on the part of all these souls. They pass once more into Hades [Myers' name for the etheric planes, from where humans enter and leave physical incarnation] and review, in that state, all that now lies behind them.” (13)
After Ascension, we’ll meet up with our soul mates and continue on with the group consciousness that fits our level of development, as St. Germaine reveals: “Think upon it, my Dear Ones, in reality all souls are your loved ones and you are linked together for Infinity, and some will have had a more personal link with you. You will rejoin your soul mate [upon Ascension] and also move into a group consciousness that is perfect for your level of vibration.” (14)
Diane of Sirius depicts our future of increasing balance and group cooperation.
“Your future lies in a balanced approach to whatever you do, until there seems to be no difference from one person to another. Working together becomes easy and quite natural, and for all that you retain your own personality. Group consciousness will also develop as a result, and it is commonplace in the higher dimensions.
“It brings a peace that cannot be achieved at present, and a directional flow that continues to take you ever onwards. Bringing the energy of Light to yourself serves to bring balance to that individual, and you gain much through living your life in this way.” (15)
Frances Banks reminds us that we are not members only of one soul group, but of many.
“We are, to my limited knowledge, all members not of one Group but of many, and the many make up the Great Group or the Great Soul Being in which we live and move and have our being … and these great Beings unite to form further great Group Souls or Divine Beings in the Divine Company of Heaven.” (16)
Often a soul group coalesces to address a common work or solve a common problem, Banks says.
“These Soul Groups are extensive, yet concentrated in their classes and workshops. They realize more than we can possibly do the Divinity inherent in every particle of the Cosmos. They are able to study Divine Laws beyond our understanding. They commune together with and in the Mind of the Higher Beings whose Soul Group they constitute. They work for progress in Divine Imagination and they work as Divine Inspirational Groups. They inspire lower groups with their findings, for they still contain the lower groups within their Centres as cell-points in a vast, intricate and beautiful organism.
“Amongst them are philosophers, scientists, researchers, priests, teachers. They are parts of Groups which influence and impress such movements on earth as Psychic Research, Healing movements, Religious Co-operation, the advancement of Science and all movements intended to bring Light upon future worlds.” (17)
Thus we can see that separativeness increases as density increases and cohesiveness increases as density declines. As we evolve, our tendency towards unity grows and we seek out and live among soul groups. In the afterlife these groups may tackle a common problem. In physical life, they may come together to orchestrate events at times of great social change such as we are in now.
The higher our dimensionality, the more the song of the soul group calls out to us. It surely rings true for us that individuality is most pronounced where separation prevails and group consciousness is most pronounced where unity prevails. Our ultimate fate is to return to the one unity that our identity as fragments of God points toward. Ultimately we come back into absolute unity. The formation of the soul group, I think, is one step along that path.
