Reflective Realities


Reflective Realities

(Part 2: Exploring the Mysteries of our Reality)


Reality is a mirror of the soul. 

Our shared reality is the human soul’s mirror.

Our personal reality is our soul’s mirror.

Both are our teachers.


A dynamic interplay resides between our soul and our experiential reality.

Our soul is like a kaleidoscope. The soul gives form to our consciousness so that we can possess individuality, like the individual designs seen through a kaleidoscope. The energy manifested from our unique designs creates our spirit, which is our “substance” in creation. Every belief, thought, perception, desire, emotion, act, and time-based judgment contains an energetic property to it. The sum of these is our overall energetic character or spirit. We contemplate the soul, but we experience the spirit.

Our personal reality is a mirror of our kaleidoscopic soul. Just as we look into a mirror and see the many aspects of our physical reflection, when we look at our reality, we can see the many aspects of our soul’s reflection. The latter is more difficult to observe for the “untrained eye”. But with observation and meditation upon this dynamic, we start to see the many connections between our soul and our reality. If we change our physical appearance, the mirror will reveal it. If we change our soul’s appearance, our reality will reveal it. Though changes in our soul may not produce what we expect because one change affects the whole, like a change in a kaleidoscope affects the entire pattern in ways not anticipated.

This interplay is echoed in the concepts of karma and you reap what you sow. It’s the understanding that powers the “self-help” movement; change yourself to change your reality. For those willing to learn, our realities are great teachers. But as we learn and grow, we encounter an insurmountable limitation; our false self-judging consciousness that governs our soul. In these posts, I’ll be sharing my exploratory experience of what a soul goes through to overcome this limitation, thus become a soul of divinity.

Reality – The Soul’s Reflection

Right now our life or reflective reality mirrors the sum effect of every judgment we’ve made, yes or no. Where we live, our lifestyle, our religion, our habits and our health. If we have a job, spouse, and/or children, and the nature of these relationships. What we eat, drink, and wear. Every aspect of our lives down to our thoughts is affected by our judgments, choices and decisions. And every aspect has an energetic vibration that sends ripples into our reality, which also influences our shared reality. Mingled into these effects are elements like divine mercy, intercessory prayer, the plethora of energetic vibrations of creation, and the current state of the human consciousness as a whole. The interworking of our judgments and these other influences creates our reflective reality.

With every perception, we are constantly judging, choosing and responding to what we perceive, which is constantly altering our kaleidoscope and its expression. We impact reality and what our reality reflects back impacts our next spin.

It’s enlightening to contemplate how our personal reality is the cloak of our individual judgments. When confronted honestly, it leaves no room for blame. But it also reveals the creative aspect of our soul. We are creators. And our main creation is ourselves.

The Fabricated Self

We all are “self-made”, with mercy in the mix, to a significant degree. Upon birth, we receive the raw materials for our soul’s journey; gender, race, aspects of our parent’s spirits, our birth year, etc. and then our self-contained judgments build upon them. Each one of us is living out a specific series of potentials based on these judgments that are networked into our purposes and individuality, like the interwoven design of a kaleidoscopic image.

Our reflective reality reveals this “self-made” aspect of our mortal experience. And as we consider its reflection we observe there are many inherent problems with being “self-made”, which is a key reason we are experiencing it. At profound levels I’m learning that being “self-made” isn’t what I desire at all, but to be entirely divinely made, thus to be divinely governed. In a “self-made” mode, we forfeit all of the characteristics that make us truly alive; divine love, truth, individuality, true freedom, rest, endless joy, to name a few. If only Eve knew this in the garden, yet how could she without this experience?

Through our self-driven judgments, we create a “fabricated” version of ourselves. Our fabricated-self is the reflection of our soul that we experience while we are governed by the false self-judging consciousness. With this consciousness at the helm, our soul is governed by erroneous relative truths. These distorted constructs mesh together and create our individual expression. It’s a fabricated-self created by our false self-judging consciousness that manifests a false reflection of who we are. It’s not who we truly are because it is based on lies about who we are. It’s quite the conundrum.

These distortions in our perceptions create a contorted reality that perpetuates our erroneous judgments. Our “self-made” creation of our self-driven will creates a world of problems. This fabricated-self muddies every reflection in our reality; how we perceive ourselves, others, our relationships, our work, our purpose, our situations, our reality, and our Creator.

This fabricated-self is why there are SO Many different images of God. Our soul jades every perception, including our perception of God. All these perceptions remain muddled until we begin a soul journey of knowing the Truth, thus divine love.

As truth begins to enlighten our soul like splashes of light on our muddled kaleidoscope, our perceptions slowly start to align to truth. Instead of being solely influenced by the revolving dynamic of the false self-judging consciousness and our reflective reality, we are introducing a new element, divine consciousness. As we extend our soul through conversational prayer into the realm of divine consciousness, our consciousness is influenced by this divine consciousness and truth starts to seep in. The truth begins to replace the lies thus the illusions created by our fabricated-self.

This is the beginning of our journey of transforming from a fabricated-self into a divine-self. This temporary mortal realm, in which we experience the “self-made” reflection, serves an essential role in our evolution into souls of divinity. We will always create a reflective reality because our soul is a creative entity. But instead of a false self-judging consciousness at the helm, we will be governed by the divine consciousness. Through this governance, perfect judgment flows through us as if our own. Our reflective reality becomes one of light, life and love and no longer of darkness, death and the absence of a true love. Thus, our cloak reflects many brilliant colors coming from our kaleidoscopic soul of divinity. So though our soul begins as a black and white kaleidoscopic design, it becomes a soul reflecting a cornucopia of rainbows.

Contemplating the oneness of Truth while guided by the Voice of Truth produces the evolution or maturation of the soul, spirit and mind, so reality can begin to reflect Truth's immutable, divine attributes, which manifest the highest good for all. This blog reflects an ever-deepening understanding of the Truth a soul gains as its mind is renewed by Truth's pure Light.

  3. This is quite a complex concept, Rachel. You and I can know our soul or spirit (the two seem to be the same). Let us simply contemplate God’s invisible presence. I often do so while reading the Bible. In REVELATION, Chapter 2, God our Saviour says that although certain of His followers have done much to espouse Him to others, He still scolds them because they “have left their first love.” By contemplating God’s presence, you and I are
    communing with (loving) God, which is what God considers to be the most valuable effort we can ever make. I call it passive prayer — prayerful listening for God’s thoughts to enter our minds. Wouldn’t it be elating to trustingly await a thought from God, and have that thought actually come to you? Try it — daily. Maybe you already do so. John

  4. Yes. Perfect Love (Divine Love Truth) casts out fear. Again, thanks for sharing Rachel! Date: Thu, 5 Feb 2015 22:59:23 +0000 To:

    • Foolishness no one has been to heaven but Prophets is given glimpses of heaven. And thier glimbses are biblical and this is not biblical it is foolishenss

  5. When we meditate upon the
    sameness that makes us
    identifiable to each other,
    we find in that harmony an element of peace,
    but when we talk about experience or what
    we experience, we enter into the remembrance
    of what our mind has already known.
    By measuring these things quantitatively, we find
    no growth, because the measuring and viewing,
    are being produced from that realm,
    the experience of yesterday.

    When we say we have a cloak,
    we begin to disingenuously suggest
    that the creator is not bigger than our personal
    estimation, or that our experiencing this,
    “higher estimation” of our soul is what is important.
    The conundrum seems to come only when,
    we do not accept who we are.
    The truth is actually a person.
    And the person is not us.
    When truth, comments, on this cloak,
    the cloak becomes the least important factor.
    The means to stepping outside the illusion,
    is to know that truth, is a person.
    The person is not us,
    and the reflection is only important when
    it acknowledges who that person is.
    When we know that we are being, accepted,
    the person no longer has a cloak,
    no longer has the need for a cloak.
    Then the real you emerges.
    This makes self analysis much less important.
    At this point you can receive from God (Jesus),
    as He is~ and how He has revealed himself.
    This depth, and reflection are from Him,
    and are estimated, and measured by Him,
    and become the center point of your view,
    releasing one from the constant desire to
    re-estimate, and re-judge your awareness.
    The beauty of this, is that God reveals himself to
    you, denying you the need to ‘describe’ your
    You are know by Him, and He is known by you,
    in a conversational way.
    This makes, communication unthreatening, and
    is pretty much the same experience for all.
    It frees you to be yourself without “psychological”
    preparation, and constant re-positioning of your mind.
    Be yourself. Know Jesus. Peace.
