No matter what did — or didn’t — happen during your childhood, this Father’s Day can inspire you. Here are 10 reasons why.
Father’s Day Idea #1: YOU have been a father. Often.
You can be sure that YOU have been a father many times. A human father! So experience in this lifetime adds to your progressive learning about fatherhood here at Earth School.
Why do I think so? Right now, you’re not only human. You’re evolved enough to have gained Gutenberg literacy in this lifetime. You are even evolved enough to have an interest in energetic literacy. Maybe also empath skills. And even a strong desire to move toward Enlightenment?
Now I haven’t read your aura, personally. Probably. Most of you’all are lurkers here at Deeper Perception Made Practical. Even among you regular blog contributors, unless you have been in session with me, I have never done Skilled Empath Merge or aura reading on you.
Yes, spiritual evolution does show in an aura. So that would reveal a great deal. But merely being practical, of course you have been a father plenty of times by now. I have it on good authority that in order to rate an incarnation in human form on earth, each of us has had at least 10,000 lifetimes.
Daddy deer? Daddy dog? Daddy horse? All that and more.
Now that you’re made it to human, how many lifetimes have been required for you to be evolved enough to become actively self-actualizing? That’s plenty more incarnations, don’t you think?
Also it’s common knowledge in the field of past-life regression that we seldom incarnate more than twice in a row as either female or male. So you do the math.
Sure you have been a father. This is an Earth School specialty. One of your ongoing projects is to continue gaining knowledge about being a father, how to do it well, how great it can be, how hard it is. Let your continuing education about fatherhood… continue.
Father’s Day Idea #2: Keep the good
Whatever has been good between your Dad and you lives within you forever in your spiritual tie to this man.
Some relationships to a father are unalloyed goodness. In that case, lucky you. And you then will have a nice, juicy spiritual tie to your Dad.
Admittedly many relationships to fathers are mixed, while some have been downright horrible. Still there might be some shred of goodness.
What about estranged relationships with a parent?
If you had one of those awful relationships, sure you may now be estranged. Your father may have died at a certain point, leaving no room for reconciliation. What if your father still is alive and estranged, and that makes Father’s Day into a hollow sort of mockery for you every year.
Well, good for you! That can be a deeply loving thing, a way to keep yourself growing. Good for you, if you had to make that choice and you showed the courage to defy the Hallmark card stereotypes of “Gotta love Home Sweet Home.”
Sometimes we aim for exactly that estrangement in life when designing an incarnation; could be, finding that strength to stick up for yourself has been one of your highest achievements of this lifetime.
The good remains
Bottom line, be proud of how YOU have conducted yourself in the relationship with your father this time around. You did the best you could. And you get to keep that achievement.
All that good is recorded in the long history of your soul, his and yours.
Father’s Day Idea #3: Sure, you can cut your cord of attachment to Pop
That would be a pretty smart idea, regardless of how you relate to him now.
Of course, you know that your spiritual tie to your father is an entirely different type of energy structure. A cord of attachment is not some random energy cord, and it never is helpful for you.
So develop your skills to cut cords of attachment for self-healing until you have a high skill level and then tackle the one to your father. Or find an expert (I’d recommend a professional or apprentice in the field of Rosetree Energy Spirituality).
Being freed up from that very major cord of attachment can help you enjoy every Father’s Day more.
Incidentally, a (very healable) cord of attachment to your father exists, even if you were adopted
Maybe you never met your biological father.
Regardless, he lives in you still. Your spiritual tie may not be a big deal, especially if you never have met him. Regardless you will have a major cord of attachment to your biological father, even if he was just a sperm donor. Moving out that very major cord of attachment can lift a huge burden, including a touch of karma completion.
Living now, you cannot control your history. But you can take control of STUFF that lives in you from early years of this Life Contract. Even entertaining that possibility could be pretty inspiring. And moving forward by having this cord of attachment properly cut can produce profound results for your path of personal development.
Father’s Day Idea #4: You chose your father
Yowza, what were you thinking? Maybe inspiration. Maybe you found him on Craig’s List.
Just kidding. This is hardly a casual, random choice.
If you believe in reincarnation, you might want to understand the role of free will in this process. In certain traditions that do include the concept of reincarnation — Buddhism and Hinduism, for instance — there are traditional ideas about the wheel of karma and how wicked souls are forced to reincarnate, unable to help themselves.
Even Paramahansa Yogananda (mega-Enlightened, incorruptible, one of my heroes) wrote this way, sometimes. And why not? He came to America in 1920! Collective consciousness in the world has evolved a great deal since then.
Granted, this is just my point of view. Feel free to disagree anytime! IMHO, this view of reincarnation does not match up with my experiences guiding clients with Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis, including the version of Life-Between-Lives hypnosis I do with clients, a method adapted in many significant ways from the great work in past-life regression of Michael Newton.
These days I’m calling it Life Between Lives SEAH (Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis). My findings, from helping clients, are pretty clear.
A soul chooses to have an incarnation. That soul brings ideas for a Life Contract. That soul enters into a planning meeting, where that soul has a great deal of say-so.
What about those old notions of “Life on earth as hell” and “Sinful beings cannot stop themselves from reincarnating”? These are an Eastern version of obsolete notions in Western religions, like “Sinners in the hands of an angry God” or “If you love your child, teach him to fear God” or being a “Good, God-fearing Christian.”
Collective consciousness has definitely evolved a great deal since 1920, with such accelerated evolution leading up to The Shift into The Age of Energy. During YOUR lifetime!
So free yourself up of resentment about the father you had at the start of this incarnation — if you can. Free yourself up with forgiveness, with prayer, with authentic healing that can keeps you from working hard to forgive.
Because your history lives on within you, no choice about that. By contrast, subconscious, astral-level STUFF does not have to keep on living within you.
Father’s Day Idea #5: Your Life Contract gives you a big advantage NOW
It’s a rare human being who has an easy time here on earth up to the age of 21. Because most of us have designed Life Contracts that are heavy on the negative karma replacement up to the age of 21 — or in some cases 28.
Most of your Life Contract depends on free will. Depending on how you respond to situations, where you take initiative, what your motivation is, how much healing you choose for yourself — factors like this shape your subsequent karma.
There is no time like the present, when it comes to the power of your free will. Present-time speech and actions will shape your future; free will does change your destiny.
And many of us living today have even experienced a virtual reincarnation, that great reward for superb achievement in life. To me, this matters as much as gaining Enlightenment. (Ask why, Blog-Buddies, and I’ll be glad to share my views on that.)
Meanwhile, some aspects of the Life Contract are not subject to free-willish change. These things become “Meant to be.”
Well, hello! That includes Daddy.
Whether or not that relationship has gone well historically, now is your time of power. One way or another, keep moving along your chosen path. Celebrate how your father has helped you with that, one way or another.
