I have been thinking of this topic on and off for too many months now.
It is the subject of "Gender Identity" or "Gender confusion". IE- A man feels like he is really a woman and goes through all kinds of heart wrenching and oftentimes physically painful things, and very often emotionally and mentally painful, to correct what seems to be "wrong": feeling like a woman in a man's body. And also of the reverse situations where a woman feels like a man "trapped" in a woman's body.
What I always feel, especially since the acceleration of consciousness development that occurred after my own Soul Realignment, and especially after becoming a Soul Realignment practitioner, and quite simply I feel a "reader of the Akashic Records", is that:
If people could only have the Inspiration, 1) to even know that the Akashic Records existed,
and then- were able to have someone look into their record, if they were really ready to hear the information, they may actually find out that, Yes indeed that Woman who (just for illustration) has absolutely no inclination to have children, and who feels a little (or a lot) "butchy", like there is a "man trapped inside"- well this woman through her Akashic Record may actually find out that her Soul is Male. And what a relief that would be, don't you think?
"Ohhh, so that's why I have always felt this way, or that way! I have a Male Soul!"
(I actually had a client a while back who "guessed" that she had a male soul- and in an eyeblink so much of her life experience, feelings, etc... made sense to her!)
Yes, it is true- for a "time" (and that could mean hundreds of thousands of years, who really "knows") a Soul does have a gender, either Male or Female (depending on the choice that was made upon the first emergence from Source). The lessons of many varied Incarnations "smooth away" the need for this experience (of the soul having a specific polarity), as the soul ascends and grows, then at a point the Soul becomes Androgynous. This is an aspect of the Soul's process of evolution as I have currently come to understand it.
I can tell you, throughout the Past Life research I have done for myself, out of the 8 Lives before my current one that I have looked into in depth, (there are others that I have just "skimmed the story" so far) I have been in a Male Incarnation in 4 of those lives, and I have been in a Female Incarnation the other four. Now again, of course I am in a Female Incarnation. Pretty evenly stacked so far. I have been a father, I have been a mother, I have been childless... I have played many parts, been on many sides of the various coins, so to speak.
Many, many Souls have been taking opposite gendered bodies, switching back and forth, for countless thousands of years here on this Earth. Why?
- To prepare the energies of this Planet for it's Ascension out of the paradigm of the harshest manifestations of the duality concept- the stark polarities that has led all life into an almost irrevocable place of separation, fear, greed, lack mentality, disempowerment- you get the picture. Many souls have been switching back and forth from gender to gender to assist with the balancing of Male and Female Energies- in preparation for the return of the Divine Feminine, and eventually to merge in Harmonic, Balanced Partnership with the healed Divine Masculine. (Think of this- how many men do you know or have known where you thought/felt, "Wow, he really understands women!" And he really did! That could have been a Female Soul in a Male body- "doing the work" in the healing of the wounded masculine consciousness!)
I have heard that it takes some Souls a few lifetimes to "get used to" being in a Body that is "opposite" their Soul's "Gender", and perhaps this is what is being seen, and voiced in so much earnest throughout our media outlets. (One reason to me is undoubtedly the mass consciousness' addiction to drama and the use of a human being's personal "torment" as entertainment and sport- through which I have not observed any notable, or in depth, Healings that have occurred in any of these "reality stars'" inner lives. That of course is another subject- sort of...) I feel that there is so much outcry for various reasons- but the foremost reason in my inner sense is that- people (mass consciousness) do not know, are not aware of, the Soul, the Soul's Record and the Past Life backstories that have informed the current story of their physical life.
It would soothe and dissolve so much pain that a person with these queries was facing if this were information, this Soul Knowledge, that was being worked with for each individual- on a mass scale.
This while keeping in Mind that we are Here, in this body, whatever Body that is- to add to the Richness of WHO WE ARE, at a Level of That which Is Eternal. And it is though the Experiences of "Contrast" (meaning experiencing the opposite of what which we feel we prefer in any given moment, which assists us in redefining and realigning ourselves with Our individual specific truth of who we are), that we as Higher Beings of Light and Creation are offered by having this experience in this very dense atmosphere that is called the 3rd Dimension, that we Souls expand and continue to Grow. Some of these challenges (ie- painful experiences) may certainly be intended by the Soul/Higher Self to be fodder for Growth. Certainly, when it comes to a Soul's story, NO two are alike- and it is not always apparent to the uinaware human just what are the larger meanings that have fueled a certain experience!
What I am offering here, though to all those who are going through something like this:
Knowing the story/stories of the Soul's journey adds a richness
to the current Life experience in so many ways-
including an appreciation for This current Life,
an Inner Knowing and Peace that All is Divine and All is "Right",
that we can never really get it "wrong", that we are
Empowered to Change/Script the Story in a way that is more suitable to how we've grown,
and the Knowledge that when this one "ends"-
it is NOT the "end"- but some of these are other stories.
Much Love, and Blessings,
