Living Future Pull

Nancy's lark
When my evolutionary buddy, Nancy Carlson, excarnated, she channeled, “Rosie, I am as free as a lark.” Later on the day that she died, I was sending her Light for the Journey prayers, and I heard a voice say, “Go outside and look over your house.” I grabbed my camera and here is what I saw!

Living Future Pull’s Supplemental Bonus Materials

In Awaken and Soul Befriending I included challenges and activities to make the books more interactive. I was fond of saying that both books were a year’s workshop between covers. Living Future Pull felt different and I did not want to interrupt the flow.  I also wanted to save trees and I decided to place my prompts on my website.

Enjoy the dynamic process of discovering your own Future Pulls!

Quotations

I offer these quotations to help you reflect upon your own journey as you align more deeply with your evolving soul story. Use them for writing prompts to deepen your connection with those that speak to you.

Reflective Questions

I designed the following questions as prompts to assist you on your journey towards conscious evolution. Questions helped me connect the dots in my journey. Many of them arose from my heart as I worked on Living Future Pull. I invite you reflect and respond to those that resonate with you.

How would your life be right now if you let go of judgment—including self-judgments?

Field Notes

While editing Living Future Pull, several wisdom gems stood out for me.  Similar to cliff notes that I relied upon in college, I hope the following wisdom threads will move you beyond ordinary awareness to a greater sense of your wholeness.

We each have a unique energetic signature.

Whatever we believe, we are correct because the universe will endorse whatever we believe.

Everything that you think about, say, or do to another is a reflection of how you view yourself.

As you withdraw your projections, your relationship with soul will expand.

Our physical body is affected by attitudes and emotions.

Identifying exclusively with your personal story creates a victim consciousness.

To put an end to scarcity thinking, forgive yourself and others.

The capacity to let go of limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging thoughts is an indication of how free you are.

The goal is never to escape our stories, but to make our stories sacred.

The courage to see without attachment or judgment is a trampoline to soul story.

Self-love and intuition are intimately connected.

Soul evolution requires times of silence. Think of Silence oxygen for the soul.

Consciousness is multi-layered. When you live your life from your unique soul story, you acknowledge more than the here and now perspective.

Being curious and opening yourself to your multi-dimensional nature scares your ego and delights your soul.

You are not responsible for the karmic evolvement of another soul.

We are in a different relationship with time when we realize we are eternal.

The soul can exist without a body. The body cannot exist without the soul.

Embodiment is the delivery system of the soul.

Your alignment with soul is for the sake of inner truth — not for inner rewards.

Soul growth is not about learning. It is about remembering without the scrambled frequency that ego creates.

When you are aligned with your soul, you radiate love and healing.

The soul constantly calls to the ego to die to its illusions.

Grace requires a human body in order to express in the human dimension.

Everyone is a spark of the Divine and therefore a channel of love and healing.
