Chapter 49 from The Reincarnation of Columbus by AHONU
Copy of Chapter 49 from "The Reincarnation of Columbus" by AHONU, available on Amazon.co.uk here or the Kindle version is here. This is the chapter that explains about promises, vows, oaths, spells and curses and contains the revocation. This scene is where Aingeal Rose is in my Akashic Records explaining to me the consequences of my promises to my ex-wife Brindle and my past-life promises to my son, Ryan.
“You and Brindle had been together in a past life," she said, her words were clear, almost floating across the crisp autumn air blowing in from the lake. I watched the tourists on Chicago’s Navy Pier in the distance, pulling up their collars and wrapping their coats around them to shelter from the stiffening breeze. I felt the shiver, not from the growing chill, but from the penetration of her words. “Your lives were intertwined around broken promises that you keep coming together to resolve. Your expectations were shattered again, this time. You came back together to resolve these old promises but this time round you were both unable to deal with the depth of the tragedy of the loss of Ryan," she said. She paused, her eyes focused skyward as if watching a cosmic presence or listening to an inaudible voice from heaven. “All your children were with you from a past life together and they have the same issues to forgive, and resolve in their own way and in their own time.”
She was clear in her words. There was no ambiguity about it. She had been reading the Akashic Records([i]) for years, and people’s lives and businesses had flourished from her guidance. As I began to think about the reading more deeply, I realized that I felt I was steamrolled and pushed into situations and circumstances, whereas the real truth was that I had chosen these situations and circumstances in which to grow. In all of these cases I was exactly like that ship seeking the new world, but cast adrift, rudderless. My children, in their innocence, did try to help me, but they really did not know what to do or which way to go, either. They were aged 9, 11 and 13 at the time and were just entering puberty. They did their best under the circumstances.
“What was Ryan’s purpose in living or in dying?”
“What you have to realize is that babies are not the tiny innocent, fragile newcomers we all think they are. Each baby born is actually an old soul, having been around the cycle many times before, always seeking to grow, to learn and to teach along the way. Ryan’s soul purpose was to teach you, as part of his own experience and this was fulfilled in the short time he was here.” She paused, partly to catch her breath, but mostly to look intently into the etheric space above my head, as if to read another paragraph of information before she could continue.
“You see, both of you were soldiers together, side-by-side and you had a deep bond of love that transcended this life. You promised to help each other no matter what the circumstances, and as he died from a war injury to the head, you both promised to see each other again. I can see you shaking hands as men. He kept his promise but once back in a body, his promise was fulfilled. He was learning as much from you as you were from him. Once he was done, he did not want to, or need to, continue with his incarnation on Earth at that time.”
I was willing to go along with this narrative, because it made sense of all that I had experienced. Even though there was no tangible proof that any of it was true, it was beginning to be true for me, and that was all that mattered. I began to feel a deep sense of peace for the first time in years. I started to relish the new sense of clarity that was unfolding inside me and for the first time in my entire life, the threads of all my different experiences were beginning to knit together into a cohesive pattern that made sense.
“He is glad you are writing in a journal. He is telling me that one day you will put it all together in a book, and that book will be closure for you. He wants your book to be the way that you can have a renewed relationship with him in each moment, not in the past. He is not in the past about it. He is here now.”
“So you’re saying he planned it all?”
“You planned it all together. Prior to incarnation, everyone agrees together what experiences they want to have unfolded in their lives but the outcome depends on each individual’s choices. This is where free will comes in. So you agreed to meet again, you agreed to continue your deep relationship, you agreed to teach each other about love, you agreed to continue to be a catalyst for each other’s growth.”
“So it looks like we’ve both done all we agreed to do. But why did it all have to be so painful?”
“It didn’t. He’s telling me it’s only painful for one that does not understand the cycles of life and death.”
“That must be me, then,“ I mumbled. I did not want to seem ungrateful for anything, especially since the Jyotishi and Eoin had both declared the possible existence of Ryan returned to me again in this incarnation. I was hugely grateful for all my children, and spent all my energy in protecting every moment of joy I shared with them. However, I had seen the error of thinking that I knew the answers to all of life’s questions. I now knew there was so much more to understand, and paradoxically, I knew I did not know how much I did not know. In many ways, the whole concept of the cycle of life and death, and my unfolding belief in reincarnation, posed both excitement and danger if I opened up to it. I wanted to continue just like my own young, naive, and innocent children, lost in play, safe from the dark and dangerous manipulations of the world. Yet, as sponges on the ocean floor of life, the children and I were always desirous of soaking up more and more understanding.
“So, now that I believe in reincarnation,” I offered, “does that mean I won’t feel loss when someone I love dies?”
“That depends on your level of spiritual growth. If you truly love them, you will know you haven’t lost them. They will also know that. Love does not know death.”
“This all sounds a bit too esoteric for me. I still feel the pain of the separation from Ryan, but thankfully, the pain of the separation from Brindle has lessened somewhat.”
“That simply points to a level of awareness. The more aware you are, the more the gap of separation narrows. Full awareness has no separation from Source at all and is a state of pure bliss. This is what you experience in meditation, isn’t it?”
“Yes, I find that sense of great peace and bliss in meditation, but I can’t go around in that state all day.”
“Yes, you can. You don’t have to sit to meditate you know. And the more you experience bliss, the more you bring that peaceful state into your daily life.”
She was right. I was drawing a distinction between the state of bliss and my day-to-day life. The ideal was to merge them both. I had found that happening more and more, but they were isolated incidents, and certainly not under my conscious control.
“I need to go back to Ryan Columbus for a moment. If I were an awakened being, would Ryan have been born at all?”
“He might, but he might not have been born to you. Everyone’s life choices are up to them. You and he had that promise to complete together. You see, promises are a very powerful thing. They hold the same power as curses. Promises, curses, oaths, vows—they are all energetic contracts that bind people together even after death as we know it.”
“You mean if we hadn’t promised to see each other again, he would not have been born to me?”
“As I say, he might, but for other reasons. But let me tell you about the power of promises, oaths, vows and curses. It’s important. Promises are…”
A low flying jet from the nearby Arlington Naval Base drowned out her voice. I thought of the hotly debated ‘war against terror’ in Afghanistan, and all the promises that people make on every side. Husbands promising wives they’ll be back, wives promising husbands they’ll wait. Soldiers on both sides promising to defend their country, soldiers promising to avenge the deaths of their comrades. Those in grief cursing the aggressor, those desiring victory vowing to destroy the enemy. On and on it went, a never-ending spiral of death and destruction. And how it all played out in reincarnation scenarios.
“Promises are…” she started to speak again after the noise abated. “Promises are trouble if you don’t deliver on them. As you know, I am not a great believer in the authenticity of the bible but there are real gems of wisdom in parts. I think it is in Ecclesiastes([ii]) that it says;”
It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay.
“And somewhere else it says;”
If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
“So, you can see, these promises are very powerful.”
“But how do they affect me?” I asked sheepishly, knowing they did, but not grasping how.
“You made promises and vows to Ryan, to Brindle, to your children, to your extended family, to your workmates, to all those you have ever had a relationship with. In one form or another, you all agreed to meet again to resolve something. Now with Twin Flames …” I stopped her mid-sentence.
“That means you and I also made some promises in the past?” I felt I was on the verge of a breakthrough here.
“Yes, but we reuniting as one flame is more than a promise, it’s a destiny!”
“So, when we make promises, like in a wedding or in a sacrament or even as a swearing or a curse, are you saying we are bound by that, forever?”
“Yes, unless you consciously revoke them. You see, words are a powerful form of expression and contain powerful energies. When words are combined with intense emotion, as in a promise, vow, oath or curse, the emotion acts as energy for the word. The greater the emotion, the greater the energy, and thus the greater the impact of its outcome in our reality. Curses don't serve any positive purpose. They are under the heading of something that is considered very negative, which interferes with another’s free will and is manipulative. I suppose we could say that lessons can be learned from any experience, but it wouldn’t be a lesson coming from love. There must be a resonance within you somewhere with the frequency of a spell or curse if you are experiencing it. If you feel you are in effect of one now and you look within to feel that energy, you might find a common resonance somewhere with some part of yourself. Perhaps you would find that you did live in a lifetime where you were doing some of the cursing and hexing yourself as well. Certainly there were many years where the modus operandi of some of the old pagan and Celtic clans was to put spells and curses on one another, on families and on their enemies. Some of those curses can be inherited through generational lines, and perhaps if you are becoming aware of them, then you are the person that can de-energize them. Curses and spells have unique energy signatures and they have different vibrations. Source is putting them in the category of vampire energy. If you've ever felt vampire energy you will know it. Vampire energy is a strange type of hypnotic and alluring energy because it uses the magnetism of the blood to allure. In other words, vampire energy steals the magnetic life force energy in the blood for its power. Curses, spells and voodoo also use substances from the person doing the cursing, or the elements of the earth, for its magnetic power. In the big picture, Love is the creative force of the universe and it can't be destroyed, ever. When we feel we are under a spell or we feel cursed, it is asking us to examine the part of us that still ‘owns’ hatred and anger. So if you can be affected by something then you've got some sort of similarity inside yourself that resonates with it. It’s always a good thing to look at our own frequency of anger, hatred or judgment that we may still be holding against people, or ourselves. As long as these energies are resonating inside you, you will be in effect of them. Blessings and forgiveness start to disconnect these things.”
“Tell me, quickly, how do I revoke these promises that I no longer want to keep?”
“Say this after me.” Aingeal Rose spoke softly, with a depth of experience and sacred knowledge that I had not known in a long time. I closed my eyes and prepared myself to repeat her prayer, word-for-word, after her.
I revoke all vows, contracts, spells, curses, entity attachments or any promises that I may have made or agreed to, through any time, space, dimension or lifetime. I forgive myself and those involved and all the effects and outcomes of all these contracts or agreements, and I bless them all from this moment forward in the light of love.
We both remained silent for some time, as if reveling in the newfound freedom of the release. I was no longer tied to the events of the past. I was no longer energetically bound to the events that were shaping my life and I felt a freedom to begin determining my own future, a future that began by being in the present, now. I turned to Aingeal Rose, who sat in silence, her eyelids flickering as if about to open. I took the opportunity to open them with another question.
“What do the Akashic Records say about what I should do now?”
“Well, Ryan is not finished talking yet. He is saying you will write a book about your experiences, and that book will help many people. It will bring them out of mediocrity into magnificence. It will help them understand their own lives, and will bring peace to many who are struggling with their life purpose and their relationships.”
“Jeez, I’m not sure I can do that.” I raised my voice to be heard clearly over the growing wind. It blew across the third largest of the Great Lakes, causing the sound of crashing of the waves against the Old Navy Pier to drown out our voices.
“You are free now to do as you please,” she said. “I said that same revocation of promises too, and I feel the release of it very strongly inside myself. There is a wide-open universe of all possibilities around us now, and we can choose whatever we want, unencumbered by the past.” She gathered her short jacket around her and shivered. “It’s getting a little chilly here. Let’s close the Records for the moment and we can open them up again when we get back to the hotel.”
I gathered up our gear as she said the closing prayer to our Akashic Records session. I stuffed the gear into the small bag the native Indian Illini tribe had made to sustain their livelihood. As we walked away from Navy Pier along the edge of the lake towards the windy city, it was as if my whole life had guided me to this moment. While some things about my life were still unclear, I was now taking on these new concepts willingly. What was clear was that some form of destiny or purpose was unfolding. There was something becoming obvious about master numbers, especially around the number 11. This was confirmed to me countless times seeing the number 11:11 on digital clocks and I knew I was not alone because that phenomena was being reported by people all over the world. It also seemed that it, too, had developed, and now I was seeing 12:12s and 12/6 combinations everywhere. This was nowhere more evident than in my own Twin Flame relationship that had re-emerged as if out of thin air, but now I had the sense that something was happening in the bigger picture. I had no idea of what it was, or where to begin to try to understand it, but I knew that I had to begin to trust the grand design of my life. I knew I had to trust that the compass direction I was following, even in the dark of night, lost in stormy waters, was not leading me astray.
The workshops in Tenerife and in Phoenix had offered me some answers to the issues that I was now battling with, helping me understand that we may have originated from a different extraterrestrial space than Earth, and that we were capable of multiple incarnations in multiple dimensional spaces. From the viewpoint of the Akashic Records, it appears we have tried this Earth experiment countless times before and failed every time. It seems we are in the time period now when we have the opportunity to ascend from our polarized perception of existence into a more holistic and loving potential. We have the opportunity to make Earth an ascension Earth instead of a fallen Earth. It seems this experiment had failed before, because the negative agenda has always managed to overcome the light and keep us in continual darkness.
The new insights from the Akashic Records had added a new layer of understanding, and propelled me to do something more important with my life than just continuing in victim mode. Now, for the first time, I could deal with tragedy and loss with an understanding of the bigger purpose behind it. This was a welcome difference from the mourning over my own personal losses, as it seemed that was all I talked about for the previous number of years, when I led with my wounds. Aingeal Rose’s answers from the Akashic Records intrigued me, and I trusted myself to delve more deeply into it, feeling reassured that this new knowledge held the answer to the deep question of who am I, why am I here and why is this happening to me?
