Another thing we do not realize is the fact that, if we leave the earth plane in death, we go home to our spiritual home (our actual home). This earth plane is just a schoolroom where we learn our lessons and grow as a soul. We cannot see that everyone who comes into our life is a mirror to force us to look at things we cannot see in ourselves but can see in others. Maitreya told me last year that, now I have raised my vibration to the level I have, I can now lose the weight I have carried for the whole of my metaphysical career. I had needed the weight for my development and work, and it had served me well.
It also served the Self well, but now I do not need it. I had come to understand the Self and I thought it no longer had reign over me. That is until I tried to lose it. The Self fought back with all it could muster, putting fear into me about losing weight! I have always had a fear of being attractive and now the Self brought that fear up. It came from a past life, was no longer relevant, and I thought I had dealt with it – that is until the Self began to resurrect it. There were other issues such as the sweet things the Self liked, the cake (which I had started to dislike in my Higher Self), the candy, etc. It was not giving up without a fight. Then the Higher Self took over and began putting people next to me who carried weight. Everywhere I went they were there, mirrors to my own excess weight, and I began to see myself as I was. Of course, I was a Goddess and exuded such energy, but I knew I did not need the weight to keep me this way. I realized that I could be a Goddess and an amazing energy even without the weight.
