Change is upon us. The problem is that most of us are too busy fire-fighting our lives that we have difficulty sorting out just how we are changing. In order to understand ourselves and, our place within this change, we need to return to some of the basic truths of who and what we are. In this way, we will be better able to steer our way to the future. As humans, we are used to thinking of ourselves as physical bodies with some kind of extra bit we call a soul but, this is a false impression. What we really are is a soul that is 100 million years old and our soul has built for itself many physical bodies over the course of human history. As each of our many lifetimes has ended, we have merged with our higher soul aspect to review our successes and failures in the physical life we have just ended. With that process of review completed, we then plan our next physical life.
Everyone who is alive on Earth has undergone this process many times, with each successive lifetime planned to provide […] new experiences, as well as to re-live some of our past failures, in order that we complete the lesson our soul chose to learn. In this way, each new physical life is lived as a mixture of clearing out past failures, lessons we did not learn, as well as learning from the new experiences our next life will provide us with. Nobody directs the actions our souls take. Every action is chosen with full and free choice. It is how we, the physical body, react to our soul’s choices, as we encounter them in life, that determines how straight forwards our lives are. If we stray from our soul’s chosen path, we receive hints from our higher self in the guise of an illness. We return to our chosen path and the symptoms heal themselves.
All of the main choices we are faced with in life are chosen by our higher selves before we are re-born into our new bodies as babies. Babies and children are souls of the same age as we are, they just inhabit younger bodies until they become adults. Who our parents are, who our siblings are, the country we are born into, our way of life, our means of earning an income, who our lovers will be…all of the main aspects of our new lives are worked out before we are born.
This is something that we really have forgotten about. Everything we do in life, our way of life, our nationality, is all pre-determined BEFORE we are born. It is very easy to become distracted by the plight of those who live in other countries as we often compare their way of life with ours. If we consider that they have less than we in the west do, we become concerned. In doing this, we are making a judgement on the lives those others are living and who are we to make judgements in this way? The old Native American saying is something we really need to pay attention to: “Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their moccasins.”
This is not to say that we should not be compassionate or that we should not care. What we should be doing is finding a balance. Having spent thirty years working with people’s health problems, there have been many times where it was very tempting to step over the line and try to take on the problems my clients were having in their lives but, I had to draw back. No matter how much I might have wanted to cross that line, the reality is that, the situations that had arisen in my client’s lives were as a result of their soul’s choices and all that I could ever do was to help them understand the choices that they were faced with whilst doing everything I could to heal their ailments.
As we undergo this process of change, we become more and more aware of the plight of others and it becomes increasingly tempting to try to step in and solve their problems for them or allow the compassion we feel to distract us from sorting out our own problems. What we need to do is to find the correct balance. To give an example: The farmers in India have been under huge pressures by the [GMO] companies to only grow [GMO] crops. The Indian government, and banks, increased that pressure by insisting that bank loans to buy seeds were only granted to farmers who agreed to plant [GMO] crops. Traditional seeds (non-GMO) are 10,000 times cheaper than [GMO] seeds but, faced with bank and government pressure, Indian farmers planted [GMO] instead of traditional crops. Consistently, the [GMO] crops failed or produced much lower yields whilst at the same time requiring 300 percent more water and, huge quantities of herbicides and insecticides. Many thousands of farmers became bankrupt and committed suicide by drinking pesticides. But, by people in Europe rejecting [GMO] products, the pressure has now come off the farmers and they are able to re-plant using their traditional seeds. This is where balance lies. [By] rejecting to buy [GMO] products, we in the west have helped to save the lives of Indian farmers and improve their lives, immeasurably. This is compassion in action. We are not physically able to step in and alter the lives of these farmers, no matter how much we might want to but, by forcing the [GMO] companies to cut back on their crops, lives have been saved and livelihoods saved.
We need to remember to think before we act.

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
People often ask me, ‘If we have lived a series of lifetimes and, if the process of ‘reincarnation’ and our memories of these lifetimes is stored in our DNA, why is it that we do not remember these other lives?’
The answer is quite simple and has to do with the purpose of current human life.
When modern humans first appeared on Earth about 80,000 years ago, we were very much more advanced than we are now. This was at the beginning of the development of the land we know as Atlantis. In those times, human beings had the whole soul within the body. As a result, their full store of memories was intact, and fully interactive with the body, and perfectly expressed in the body’s DNA. However, as time went by, we began to notice that we were having trouble maintaining this level of being and our ‘fall’ from full consciousness was a contributory factor in our collective decision to destroy the Atlantean continent. When we returned to Earth to begin the human experiment again, 20,000 years ago, we once again adopted the same ‘human template’ and, again, encountered the same consciousness problems. The reasons for these problems are too complex to explore here but, ultimately, we formulated ‘The Human Plan’ which we fully adopted 7,000 years ago.
At that point, humans became as we are now…a soul divided into the higher self, or oversoul and, the physical self. This physical self was endowed with sufficient DNA memory to allow us to record our experiences so that, ultimately, we would find answers as to why it had been so difficult to maintain the whole soul within the physical body. Each of those involved in this plan elected to go through a series of lifetimes including experiences that would enable them to learn how to be fully human again. According to my researches, we didn’t plan to spend forever learning this! Instead, we gave ourselves a time limit of round about 7,000 years, which is why, at the present time, the energies we are experiencing on Earth are so powerfully supportive of inner transformation and growth.
As our original plan was to undergo experiences in order to gain knowledge, it was our choice to begin each new lifetime without full memory of our previous lives. This allowed us to face each new experience without past failures or successes influencing the decisions we were to make in our new physical life. As we underwent each lifetime, our higher selves would keep us on our path by communicating to us through the chakras. However, we did have the option to ‘veto’ our plans. If we felt an experience-gathering event was too traumatic to deal with in one life, we could move it forward to a subsequent lifetime. In moving these ‘difficult’ experiences forward, we seem to have forgotten our original aim of completing our learning within a limited time-frame and many of us have left things until the last minute. This is why so much of the last 200 years, and especially the last 50, have been so traumatic, as so many have had to undergo the ‘traumas’ they did not face in previous lifetimes. If we did undergo a major trauma in a previous lifetime, and we did not fully deal with it at the time, the way in which these kinds of memories become transferred from one life to the next is determined by how powerful the experience was.
The process, briefly, is this: if there was a severe trauma at the end of a previous lifetime, the ‘shock’ to the physical elements of the soul could have been so great that, instead of the memory being locked away within our DNA spirals, it could be powerful enough to imprint itself into our current physical makeup. A prime example of this is the huge increase in children suffering from asthma. From our researches, this would appear to have very little to do with car pollution, although that does not help. The main cause is that these souls are being reborn after the trauma of being gassed in the trenches of the First World War. Another example would be birth marks, which are often burns or bullet wounds from a previous life.
As a general rule, strong illnesses which arise in childhood can often be from past-life causes, especially where such illnesses moderate or disappear at puberty. Illnesses which arise after puberty are always due to causes in this current life, except for bodily functions which are not viable before puberty, such as pregnancy. It should be stressed that present-life traumas due to past-life situations are very rare. Very, very few people carry these problems. The vast majority of problems arise from not dealing with issues in this lifetime. How many times, for instance, do you speak honestly to those with whom you share your life?
However, if you have dealt with everything this life has to throw at you and there is still ‘something’ that you cannot clear, then if the problem is not too onerous, your higher self will usually clear it as you sleep at night, which may lead to unusual dreams. If the past-life experiences are quite strong, and you have put off dealing with them in this life or run out of time before we complete our reintegration, the best way of clearing them is to visit a past-life regression hypnotist. [They] can gently lead you into the problem and help you to clear it. The good news is, [our] collective efforts over the past 7,000 years have given us the answers we have been looking for and, especially since 1996, more and more people have been bringing ‘The Human Plan’ to its conclusion.
Despite the world appearing to have gone totally mad, we are actually on track to complete everything in time. We do need to understand that we have been unbelievably successful in our work of bringing this ‘Plan’ to fruition, as this will help us to overcome and to let go of the current sense of fear that is overwhelming our ability to see ourselves clearly. Try to remember that the reason why the shadows over the Earth appear to be becoming darker is because they are cast by a light that is becoming brighter.

A PDF Essay From: The Chris Thomas Files
We have travelled a long way along the path to achieving soul re-integration. Many millions of people are ready, or nearly ready, to make the final step into full consciousness. Just when we will, collectively, make that final step is still not fully determined. When the time is right, we will all take that step together. In order to be “ready” to take that final step, we need to be as clean and clear of all of our “issues” as it is possible to be. We need this full clearance in order to make enough “space” to allow the higher self unrestricted access into the physical body. So what are these “issues” and how do we clear them? How do I know if I have any unresolved “issues”? The answer is within the body itself…symptoms of ill-health.
The Root Causes of Illness
To understand the root causes of illness, we need to first understand how the body works and, more importantly, how the soul, the higher self, uses the body to communicate to us. The author has worked as a healer and a psychic surgeon for over thirty years, exploring how symptoms of illness arise, how they can be healed and how the body can be brought back into balance. Essentially, that is what an illness is…an imbalance in the energy patterns of the body. Bring the energies back to balance and the symptoms of illness disappear. It really is that simple.
When we first divided the soul into two, 7,000 years ago, forming the physical self and the higher self, we also provided ourselves with a “route-map” of how we determined if we were following the dictates of the higher self and lived through the experiences that we had planned for each successive lifetime. This “route-map” is given form through the body’s seven primary chakras.
The Seven Primary Chakras
Over the 7,000 years of the Human Plan, many individuals, and many cultures, have been aware of the chakras and the function they play in our everyday lives. Unfortunately, when the knowledge of the chakras was brought to the west, that knowledge became “westernised” and watered down into something romantic. In many, many instances, the true connection that the chakras have between the body and the soul have become lost.
The seven primary chakras are located on the spine and not in individual organs. The chakras look like “ice-cream-cones” of energy, spinning vortices, and not like a rose or a lotus blossom opening. There has also been a great deal of speculation as to the number of chakras ranging from 4 to 13, all located somewhere along the spine. There are only 7 primary chakras along the spine, however, there are a total of 238 chakras located in the body and these additional 231 are usually known as the acupuncture points [or meridians].
The body is constructed around the soul with the main concentration of soul energy being down the spine. At relevant positions along the spine, the soul energy opens up into distinct vortices of energy and each of these vortices (chakras) relates to specific organs and to specific regions of our lives. Every single person on the planet has these chakras in exactly the same location and, each chakra relates to the same organs and the same regions of our lives. Nobody is any different.
The First Chakra
The first chakra is located at the very bottom of the spine. The energy flow from the soul is directed from the higher self through the top of the head and down the spine. That soul energy then connects into the planet’s own consciousness energy through the first chakra. This is why this chakra is also sometimes known as the “root” chakra as it literally “roots” the soul to the planet. As this chakra’s primary function is to connect us with the planet, it deals with our sense of security. This is the chakra that deals with our “fight or flight” response to whatever situation we find ourselves in. This first chakra relates to the skin, the muscles and to the skeleton. It also relates to the kidneys, the urinary tract and the adrenal glands.
The way in which it works is this:
If we are in a situation where we feel mildly insecure (stressed) and we want someone to give us reassurance, the skin becomes affected with eczema. If we are not reassured, the muscles become stiff. If we feel insecure over a prolonged period of time, the skeleton (particularly the spine) becomes affected resulting in osteoporosis. The first chakra can also become imbalanced in more immediate ways through the kidneys and urinary tract. If we suddenly feel insecure and do not know where to turn for reassurance, we can urinate. This is why the young and the elderly can become incontinent.
There are several ways in which the first chakra can be re-balanced…doing something practical, something that makes us feel “grounded”. This can be things like washing dishes by hand instead of using a dishwasher, taking up a hobby such as sewing or carpentry…walking in a garden, particularly in bare feet, to help re-connect with the ground. Use a meditation that works with and re-balances all of the chakras, paying particular attention to the first chakra. [Note: If you use a chakra balancing meditation, you must balance all of the chakras during the meditation. It is no good just working on one chakra. All must be worked on or you will create a greater imbalance in the energies of the chakras.]
The Second Chakra
The second chakra, also called the sacral chakra, is located where the spine meets the pelvis and opens equally both front and back of the spine. In other words, the vortex of energy extends to the front as well as to the back of the spine. In order to avoid confusion, the illustration above only shows the back view. This chakra relates to the lower spine, the pelvis, uterus and ovaries in women and, testicles and prostate in men.
The second chakra has two functions, primary and secondary. Its primary function is to do with our creativity and its secondary function is with our sexual (husband and wife-type) relationships. Virtually all of the problems people experience with this chakra are connected to relationship problems.
Lower back pain is short-term insecurity within a relationship. Hip pain is long-term insecurity within a relationship. Problems with the ovaries and/or the uterus are related to the withdrawal of a woman’s sense of nurture from a relationship. Problems with the testes and the prostate are related to a man’s withdrawal from a relationship.
All of these relationship problems can be overcome if you begin to work with the chakra’s primary function by taking up a creative hobby. The deeper the relationship problems, the more creative you will need to become to overcome the physical symptoms. You will also need to make use of the giveaway – see below.
The Third Chakra
The third chakra, also called the solar plexus chakra, is located just above the tummy button. Again, it is located on the spine and opens equally front and back of the body. The primary function is to do with personal power and its secondary function is to do with the emotions we either do, or do not, express in personal power situations. The chakra relates to the mid to lower spine, the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen and, through the spleen, the lower body lymphatic system, the stomach and, both large and small intestines.
