Chris Thomas: How Do We Know: Ready For Soul Integration?
A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
[Preface from a client of Chris Thomas: A day or so ago, I wrote to my friend Chris Thomas because I had been chatting with a number of people about whether or not we are ready for soul integration, a name some people call the shift or the great leap in consciousness. To me, it is all about higher self connection and really knowing it exists for you and, I did wonder if he might be annoyed by the rather long e-mail I sent him where I expressed my views and those of others I know.
Here is his reply……….]
No, I am not annoyed your response. In fact, the exact opposite. It shows that people are finally able to see that what happens outside of themselves is not important. It is the inner sense that counts.
I was asked recently if “one needed to be perfect in order to re-integrate?” The concept of perfect and human going together is like military and intelligence. They are both oxymorons. The concept of what is “perfect”, in human terms, has changed with each and every generation throughout history. So no, nobody is perfect. Everybody is an individual, especially when it comes to the state of readiness for re-integration.
I can understand peoples’ confusion over if they are ready or not and why-doesn’t-the-higher-self-put-it-in-writing-please-so-that-I-can-actually-understand-what-“it”-wants-me-to-do. And yes, in that respect, it is easy for me as I have been working closely and directly with my higher self for 50 years. There are two ways in which it is possible to work out how “ready” one is. There are obviously more but, these are two that are readily accessible:
 Since October 2010, when the energy acceleration began, those who were in the process of getting ready, found that all sorts of emotional situations came up to be cleared. For many people, the 18 months since then have been one of constant trauma but, also, one where they found that emotional situations they had ignored for years, if not all of their lives, repeatedly came to the fore and would not go away until action was taken to clear them. This situation became much, much worse since October 2011 when the “final” energies for clearance kicked in. Those who took the opportunity to actually clear these old emotional situations began to take on more and more of the energies of their higher self. Those who ignored these emotional situations found that they felt under increasing pressure to do something about it. As we entered 2012, those who had found the courage to face up to their emotional past found that their lives became less traumatic and more peaceful.
So, this is guide number one…if your life became one long emotional turmoil after another and has now cleared or, at least, eased off considerably, then, it means that your higher self is satisfied with the work you have done and, you are ready for the next phase of re-integration when the time is right. There is another aspect to this and that is, for many, they were ready and did not have much emotional debris to clear. This period of time has also been traumatic for them as they see everyone else undergoing these clearances and they have had nothing, or very little, to do themselves. If you have not undergone this kind of emotional trauma over the past 18 months then, the chances are that you were already clear and ready. You were just waiting for everyone else to catch up.
An awful lot of people have done everything they can to ignore the elephant in their living rooms and have worn their shoes out walking around the elephant, doing their best to ignore it. They know that it is there, the emotional situation they need to clear but, have done everything they can to deny its existence. For these people, the last six months or so have felt like they are under a ton weight of pressure to sort something out but, have refused to acknowledge that their elephant exists.
It is these people who are holding back the time at which we are all ready to re-integrate. After all, all of these people said that they were ready to re-integrate back in October 2011 and have done nothing since other than complain about why can’t they move on. This is what your higher self is looking for…a readiness to look at your life and properly deal with those issues (emotional situations) you have ignored in the past. If you continue to ignore them, the chances are that at some point in the very near future, your higher self is going to give up on you and you will be left behind (this means dying). There is an energy boost to come very shortly which should help these people to finally deal with their elephants but, if they still refuse to sort out their problems, they will become lost (Chris is trying to be gentle and kind, here but, this mean you will die).
 We all have an ego. It is a part of our fundamental make-up and defines who we are within our own estimation. There is nothing wrong with an ego, it is [just] a question of how realistic and honest we are being with ourselves. Most people get it wrong. Their egos are either too big or they are too small. Too big means that we are not being honest with ourselves and are attempting to make those around us believe that we are more than we actually are. Too small means that, again, we are not being honest with ourselves and are denying our true selves to those around us. What our higher selves want from us is that we are honest with ourselves. Once we become honest with ourselves, we also become honest with those with whom we share our lives. By being honest with others, it allows them to be honest with us in return and once we have honest relationships, emotional traumas do not occur.
The best way of working out if you are honest with yourself is to look at how you react to criticism. If someone criticises you and, you become angry and defensive, it means that you are not being honest with yourself. If someone criticises you and, you think about what it is they are saying, look at what they are saying, honestly and your response is more along the lines of: “Yes, I see what you are saying and you are correct…” or, alternatively, your response is: “No, you are not correct, that is an unfair comment…” then, you are being as honest with yourself as you can be. That is all that your higher self wants you to be.
So, to recap…
If your life has been emotionally traumatic but, is now, or is becoming, more peaceful, then you are just about ready and have listened to your higher self. If you can be as honest as possible with yourself in all situations, then, you are just about ready and have listened to your higher self. If neither of the two above statements apply to you, then, it means that you still have work to do as you have not listened to your higher self.
