We experience time in a linear way. We exist in the now, looking ahead blindly, anticipating the future and disregarding the past, without realizing that they are all existing simultaneously.
When we think of our own "patterns" we think of them in terms of being out of control with their presence in our lives. "Why does this always happen to me?" The answer is quite simple, really. It is because we have not discovered the lesson this "pattern" is trying to teach us. Now I'm not talking about a "life" lesson. I'm talking about a "soul" lesson. If we continue to lose money buying lottery tickets, of course the obvious lesson is to stop buying them and wasting money on chance encounters. However, this lesson is secondary. What is it about yourself, your soul, that draws you to these practices. Strict scientific practitioners will tell you that a good psychoanalyst could help you to uncover the origin of these "demons" and thus begin a change in your thought patterns. This is infinitely true. It will affect your life positively. But what is the lesson your "soul" is trying to teach you? These origins developed somewhere, an "origin" can be infinite. Why does it have to begin with the incarnation or reincarnation of this physical life cycle? It doesnt. It begins with what your soul decided, yes, "decided" to experience before you were even born into this life. And you will continue to have these patterned experiences until your "soul" learns its lesson, as well as your brain.
Time seems linear. It isnt. Deja vu, vivid ethereal dreams, visitations...these are all evidence of time existing on a non linear plane. The past, present and future do exist simultaneously but on different energetic vibrations. This is why psychics, seers and mediums can uncover information to you. They are seeing into a different area of time by utilizing different energy levels. In addition, I might add, these visions are not set in stone. They are possible events that will be utlized so that your soul learns a lesson. The lesson will be presented repeatedly through similar events until your soul has uncovered its message. So no, it may not happen the way you've been told by the seers, but something else will happen, depending on how you walk this linear path, to teach you the SAME lesson. Psychics are essentially seeing "lessons", not events.
So in regard to the topic at hand, patterns can be changed once your soul has learned the particular lesson. When you decide to change your pattern by not buying the ticket, or dating the same type of person, or working the same type of job, you are on the road to true change. However, the uncovering of a deeper lesson by utilizing both earthly and ethereal means will compound to speak to your soul, and thus the universe will grade you and move you on to the next subject...pattern completed. There are many ways to investigate this, psychics, seers, hypnosis, meditation, yoga and many more. Find your niche, the process that speaks to your heart, and you will be amazed at the speed by which this transformation concludes...love to you...xoxo
