Part 4 - Counterparts and Parallel Worlds
Except for the rare Whole Soul (see below), each of us have parallel counterparts in parallel universes, that usually don't interact with each other. Each counterpart is like a branch, whereas the soul is like the whole tree. As the soul encounters decision points, or faces something that brings the soul elements into conflict, the soul will divide it's potential power up and act out the various paths in parallel with weaker counterparts. This way the soul can learn more at once and (if necessary) split apart the soul elements in conflict.
Each counterpart is only aware of their own path, their own time-line, created out of their own actions. With the right technology/spiritual development it is possible for counterparts of the same soul to interact. The world doesn't blow up, someone doesn't have to die or be erased from existence - as is often portrayed in fiction. It's not much different than twins being in the same room.
Over time the soul will want to re-focus and heal itself. It will attempt to resolve any inner conflict, which will reduce the number of counterparts it has and will increase the strength of each of them. The soul can keep reducing counterparts until it reaches the Elemental stage, although it often takes a lot of work to get to this point. This is the stage seen before a soul can become completely whole.
The Elemental Stage is when the soul divides into the 6 basic elements only. So there are six counterparts, each embodying one element at 100% potential/activity. This is an extreme state for the soul to be in, but it is a necessary step to prepare and test the soul before it becomes whole - to be sure it is ready. It is also possible for the elemental soul to split apart again if it cannot master and bring all the soul elements into harmony.
When a soul becomes whole, and all soul elements are 100% active at the same time, then they stop cycling through the elements. (See figure 4 above.) It is in a state of being that is akin to what you call full enlightenment. When a soul first becomes whole, it will often at first continue to cycle through the elements until the soul has mastered embodying all elements at once at 100% activity. At this point it becomes unlikely that the soul will split apart again. This can happen though during the phase when the Whole Soul is still cycling and settling into itself - although it is rare.
When a person dies they may also get the chance to heal or split the soul a stage further before reincarnating again. For example, a cycling Whole Soul may have the chance to be born as an active Whole Soul instead, or to split into an Elemental soul. Whatever point their soul was at when they died will determine what options are open to them when they are born again. The soul cannot just jump ahead of the queue without learning all the lessons the elements are trying to teach it.
There is also one other way that a soul can divide itself and that is through a ‘Bi-locational split’. Instead of a soul dividing itself up into many weaker counterparts, one counterpart can split itself across two or more bodies at once. In this case the potential strength of the counterpart remains the same across all bodies, but it splits whatever current soul activity it has available between all the bodies and can vary where it puts it energy over time. This is kind of like a form of split attention between several bodies in super-symmetry.
This can happen when you change a time-line and two or more bodies of the same counterpart come into play within the Reality Core where the time-line splits. This is the soul’s way of dealing with the fact it has more bodies than soul counterparts to inhabit them. In the same way that multi-tasking can cause us to give each task less attention and care, the same can be true here. It is taxing for the minds and souls of those living like this and it takes a lot of strength to sustain it for long. This is because the soul feels out of balance with it’s vehicles and it needs time for it to settle down. During such a transition it’s not uncommon for the counterparts involved to act out of character for a while, or to be more or less driven than they were before. The longer you maintain a Bi-locational split, the better you get at it and after enough time it can become second nature. It is also possible for a soul/counterpart to choose to be born with a Bi-locational split, if it should prove helpful to it’s life mission. Although this is less common.
Souls tend to attract people into their lives who have a similar level of division within them, be it through a family member, colleague, or lover. So, for example, divided souls will attract those who are also divided. In the same way Elemental souls often attract other Elementals and Whole Souls into their lives.
