Part 3 - Element Activity and Potential
Each soul element within us has a certain level of potential. This determines the highest level of activity that element can reach at any given point in our lives. The potential level gets adjusted depending on how many counterparts a soul has at any given moment. A divided soul will have on average weaker counterparts. This is because it divides it's element potential among a larger number of counterparts within it's soul. (See Counterparts and Parallel Worlds).
Each element can be either inactive (0%) in a person or somewhere between 1%-100% active (depending on their potential). The activity level is something that waxes and wanes throughout the lifetime of the individual. Elements can shut off if the environment or culture they are in suppresses and devalues them. It is like losing a muscle or a skill if you don't use it everyday. Someone could have the potential to be powerful in a given element but it gets switched off because the traits it brings out are undesirable to the people around them. If someone is quite rebellious in nature they might resist the societal pressure and keep the element alive within themselves, even though they may have to keep it hidden most of the time. Someone can also be running from an element inside them that they can't admit to, whilst other elements have the freedom to shine. So we influence an element’s activity level by the inner relationship we have with them.
When a person dies, depending on how they lived their lives, the soul adjusts it's potential level for the next incarnation (if there is one). This happens when a soul shifts the level of division within it one way or another before rebirth. If a soul heals itself, it will have fewer counterparts in play and thus the element potential increases in each one.
When we have a bi-locational split (one soul counterpart shared among more than one body) the element potential remains the same across all bodies, but they share the soul activity among them. The soul can chose where to place it’s activity at any given time, and so it can vary it depending on the current needs of each body. We determine the amount of activity the soul has to play with by the collective relationship of all bodies with the soul counterpart.
Apart from the active Whole Soul, we also cycle through the elements over time and as such this means different elements affect us more or less at different points in our lives. I explain this in further detail in the part called Soul Transitions, Relationships, and Peaks.
