Your soul attends lessons in its physical incarnations. One such school where lessons are held is Earth. If Source is Divine Love, your soul can only know itself through experiences of joy or even pain and suffering.

Your soul evolves when you are able to master your human experiences. In the physical form, you grow from being an ego-centered, limited and negative individual to one who is spirit conscious, free and divine in your expression.
Earth is a place where souls come together for a journey of experiences. It is where you and I can serve each other as teachers and students. It is a wonderful plane to be in. It is where you can obtain feedback about the choices you have made. If you have made unwise choices and not managed to learn from your life experiences, your soul returns lifetime after lifetime to go through essentially the same lesson. (Energetic information about your life lessons can also be obtained from your Akashic Records since they contain every word, thought or action.)
School Curriculum on Earth
Prior to incarnation, you decide on the “subject” you hope to learn. From the time you are born, you will draw learning experiences to yourself to enable you to progress through your chosen life lesson. If you get “stuck” and are not able to progress, you will find yourself having experiences of the same lesson repeatedly.
Earth is known as an opportunity school. You get chances over and over again to retake the same tests. Sometimes you may not be able to recognize these tests because they are presented in different forms. However, they essentially revolve around the same learning that you need to gain mastery over. It is also possible that you carry forward a specific life lesson into future lifetimes, if you are not able to complete what you need to learn in one.
Findings are also often that your soul will also choose to incarnate with those with whom you have been facing challenges with. In client readings, it is not uncommon to find records of betrayal, abandonment and trauma across lifetimes. Where lessons are mutual between two souls, roles can get switched for different lifetimes for the same class. The betrayed in one lifetime can also be the one who betrays in the next. The hurt becomes the bully in the next. The victim becomes the attacker. Or, it is also possible that both souls betray, hurt or abandon each other in the same lifetime.
Lessons are completed when souls graduate from the said class lesson in the physical dimension. Completion with just a “pass” grade in one lifetime may mean that you need to sit the test again but at a secondary level in your next lifetime. In short, a primary lesson becomes a secondary life lesson in the next. As you move up the ladder of consciousness, your soul evolves.
Passing Life Tests
Passing life tests starts with realization. You realize what your life lessons are about, in the challenges that life poses. You ask yourself what repeated patterns you see that are played out in your various life aspects: family, relationships, career, play, health and physical environment? What is the similar theme? Is it about abandonment, betrayal, shame, guilt, loss, rejection, struggle, etc?
Awareness is critical in understanding the truth and the reality of your experiences. Your awakening is the key to shattering your previously tightly-held false beliefs, perceptions and ideas. You realize also that you are not your story. Your essence lies in what-is-not.
In simple terms, you no longer react badly to difficult life situations. Your reactions move from negative to neutral and then positive. Previously viewing a negative event as a difficulty, you now perceive it as a challenge. Finally, with an even deeper understanding, you are able to use the event as a valued opportunity to learn important life lessons. You experience a change in paradigm.
You understand that your school tests are probably mirroring the thoughts you have inside. If it is fear that you hold inside, it will be a test that teach you on courage. If it is about a sense of rejection, then the test will be a lesson on unconditional love. If your thoughts are about struggle, then the test will be teach you about divine abundance. Through your state of Being, you constantly adjust your energetic vibrations until you are able to experience more and more positive outcomes.
You are no longer the life story that your ego has been saying you are. You give up the drama, the role of the helpless, traumatized and miserable victim that you have been playing up to. With continual practice, you get better and better in dealing with difficult situations. You now live in grace, peace and harmony for all there is. You are on top of your life lessons. You come tops in your school exams.
Graduate With Flying Colors
Ultimate life lesson mastery is when you do well in your school curriculum. You graduate at University Level with a PHD. I believe that the certificate awards you with an “enlightened” accreditation as well. Your certificate is kept in your Akashic Records. The truth of your Being is available for all to come to know. The entire Universe is in cosmic celebration with the mastery of your soul.
Graduating with flying colors involves living your Highest purpose. Your purpose on Earth is one of carrying out unselfish acts of serving humanity. You serve meaningfully. Through embracing your spiritual self, you embody the highest human potential to everyone else. This means that you are in total alignment with Divine Love, Light and Truth. You are at peace with your every moment of now in the physical dimension. You are the living expression of all of Divinity.
More On Life Lessons
I am moving on to writing a series of articles on life lessons, after my posts on ego. My thoughts are that adopting a bigger perspective to your current life situation allows you to choose your reactions differently. You are in better charge. Life becomes less of a struggle and more of a joy to live in.
My questions to you are: What is your current life situation about? Notice any repeated patterns? What classes are you currently taking?
