Let your intuition guide you in this and in all things relating to your path and the direction you take for yourself.
Spirit guides often speak to us by saying that they are our brothers or our sisters. This is to help us understand that they are not more evolved than we are, or more worthy of our respect than we ourselves are. We are the same - but they live in a different dimension than we do and so can see beyond the limits than we think are real. For instance, when we speak to Jesus, he speaks to us calling us his brother or his sister.
A template is a pattern: it gives the energy a basic outline around which to organize itself, otherwise you would have disorganized perceptual dynamics, difficult thinking and it would be hard for you to make sense of things in a way that helps you organize your life so that you follow your soul's purpose.
Your soul is inscribed with the purpose to which you have set yourself in this life. No matter what you choose to do, say, or think, your soul remembers your mission and makes sure that you make choices that will put you in touch with it whenever you veer too far away to feel its essence. You - in your whole soul aspect - have agreed to follow a certain tradition - and I don't know what that is, but you do in some part of your awareness. It has nothing to do with being a good person in this life, as you put it, unless you know deep in your heart that that is what is most important to you and has always been. Many people believe that being a good person is what we are supposed to be doing. That's only part of it. Being a good person WHILE WE FOLLOW OUR SOUL'S DICTATES is what we are supposed to do. You are following your soul's dictates.
Energy Portrait Guidance
Part of Leiah's process of creating an Energy Portrait is her reception of guidance from other aspects of the whole, multi-dimensional Self in which she and the person whose Energy Portrait she is creating merge: angels, extra-trerrestrial aspects, and other sources she accesses through opening her heart and mind to the unlimited expanse of Being. These excerpts are from a letterto a client wishing to know more about the process.
