One of our readers wrote us a couple days ago about last week’s newsletter article, How Do We Reconcile Reincarnation and Simultaneous Time?
Here’s what she wrote, which I’ve slightly edited:

I’ve often pondered on this concept. How does the non-linear time concept fit in with physical structures currently on Earth, i.e. the pyramids which were obviously created at a past time and endure now?

Perhaps (you could do) a blog on the soul—what it is, what it looks like, how big it is, what it does, what its relationship is to the incarnated personality and its relationship to Source energy. Can we contact Source through our soul?

Many thanks for your wonderful work.

You are all multidimensional beings. You, the real you—your consciousness, neither exist in time nor are limited by it. You have “invented” linear time so that you can more fully understand your experiences while you are in a physical body.

Once you leave your body, as in dreams or what you call death, linear time no longer exists. All that exists is your consciousness—the real you. You can move at will through what you perceive with your physical senses as time and space. Your consciousness does not know time or space—it’s unlimited and unfettered.

Our reader’s first question about the pyramids is a good one. Remember, everything you perceive as physical has a spiritual “template,” if you will.

Before they came into physical expression, the pyramids existed in the minds of their builders. And they will continue to exist there, even if the physical structures, from your physical perspective, are destroyed.

As for her question about the soul—another good one—we have these observations:

Your soul (or spirit—we use those terms interchangeably) is your essence, your spiritual component, your consciousness. It exists independent of time and space. It is eternal. That is why we say you are eternal. You are not your physical body—you are pure spirit who happens to temporarily occupy a physical body.

Obviously, since your soul is spiritual, it does not “look like” anything, at least not like anything physical. Nor, obviously, does it have a physical size.

Often, those of you who are particularly sensitive may see light around certain people, animals, or even so-called inanimate objects such as a rock or crystal. That’s about as close as you will come to “seeing” souls.

Your soul does not “do” anything. It just is. It’s your essence, who you truly are—spirit who’s temporarily adopted a human form.

Your soul’s relationship to your “incarnated personality,” to use our reader’s words, is the most intimate, closely bonded relationship you will ever have. Your soul loves your body unconditionally. A great example for you to follow. Love your body unconditionally, regardless of its shape, size, ethnicity, or any “flaws” you perceive in it.

Your soul’s relationship to source energy is not really a relationship in the way you normally think of relationships. Your soul is source energy. You are source energy. You are God.

You sometimes talk about oneness—the oneness of humanity, of nature, of all that is. All that is—everything and everyone that exists—is part of source energy. You truly are all one.

Finally our reader asked if you can contact source through your souls. Absolutely, yes. But not in the way you would normally think of contacting another person in the physical. Since your soul and source are already and forever one, no contact is necessary or possible.

The “contact” is simply a matter of your focus. When you acknowledge and accept you are one with source, you are thereby “in contact.” You don’t have to do anything. You just have to be who you are.


In this very short video Hans Christian King talks about who we really are. I was privileged to meet Hans nearly 25 years ago. He’s an amazing channel and human being.

Do you believe linear time is the illusion Spirit says it is? Have you had experiences where linear time seems not to exist? Have you ever experienced your soul? Please share your thoughts and comments with us below.
