It took time for me to believe in reincarnation. I had to go through a process of self-understanding and experiences I had with the Mountain Meditation. Up until I was 20 years old I did not know what the purpose of my life was. I had had experiences as a child and teenager, but what I saw I just accepted, I never tried to work out where it came from or why, it was just there.
The first time Ascala actually stood in front of me and communicated with me I could see him clearly, even the colour of his robe, which was red. As he communicated with me I realised that I was meeting something within myself too. To simplify it, it was like meeting a part of me, someone you have not seen for a very long time is suddenly there. As he materialised he showed himself as a Tibetan monk. It was he who created the situation where I went to a medium for a private consultation. Again, during that meeting, it was a sense of freedom and relief when I realised that what had happened to me as a teenager was real, it was what I was inside.
Each time Ascala took me into new situations, he took me into another part of me where I met myself and discovered a little bit more about my abilities and the purpose I had. I never planned it, everything happened spontaneously. My friend and companion Ascala would appear and bring me in touch with the creativity I had within. Over the years I have realised more and more. I have always believed in a higher power, but in the journey we have made together, one of the biggest gifts he has given me is to find a truth that works for me. He continues to help me discover the resource and abilities that I never thought I could have. In his own gentle way, piece by piece, he has shown me my life’s purpose, my mission. Ascala, is somebody that I have known, it would seem, since my soul was first created.
Because of a series of events I became fascinated by the Far East. I was drawn more and more to the Buddhist philosophy and I realised that it was a very big part of me, my way of being and living. He told me many years ago that I would one day work with research. I remember the day when I travelled to China, because I had been invited to a university there to do some research. Ascala had shown me many pictures through meditation, where I was beginning to realise my connection to China and Buddhism. To go to China was like returning home. I had an opportunity to meet these elders at a Buddhist College and as I sat and listened to them I remembered the times when he had taken me back to another incarnation. There I was, the young Chinese boy, a novice being taught by the elders at a temple.
There have been many times that Ascala has taken me back to incarnations that we have shared together. The skills and the things that I learned in those incarnations, is a part of me today, my inner resource. Several years ago he took me back to a time before I incarnated to this lifetime. In that journey Ascala and I stood before the spiritual masters of that realm and discussed the incarnation that I am now experiencing. Of course as a child I did not remember the promise I had made and the mission they gave me in this lifetime, but each time he offers me a new challenge and takes me to a new place, deep within me memories come to the fore. Memories of my soul that are indelible, the creativity and the knowledge that I carry within.
It is that purpose within, my soul’s intention that is my driving force. It is something very deep within me, and I have been given the proof many times. Who knows where is going to take me next, but when this incarnation is finished I have no doubt that Ascala will be meeting me when I go to the other side. Then he and the elders of that realm will discuss my next incarnation. What that will be I have no idea, but if I choose to accept it I give my soul the opportunity to develop its intelligence further.
