My first experience sixteen years ago was when my Usui Reiki teacher read my energies from the imprints held in my spectacles. He then sent healing to me via it.
We lived many lives connecting and working with different planes. Exchanges were made, and in return for some benefits, we may have obligations to certain planes.
Most of us souls have ventured through many lives, learning different lessons and mastering virtues, while old stories remain imprinted in our cellular memories.
Gifts within us have been suppressed together with what we reject. When we shift our consciousness, we shift for the people around us (when they too are ready).
