[Excerpt from TT: 2005-04-03]
[H2OSprtlvr] Can a fragment, in one given lifetime, gain a soul age level and if a fragment feels they have mastered or accomplished one goal (say like growth) could they work on another goal in one given lifetime? Like change their Overleaves perhaps?
[M Entity] Fragments do change soul ages and levels within a single lifetime, though it is rare. It is not as uncommon among Older Souls, however.
In many cases those transitional lifetimes are experienced, literally, as two lifetimes in one incarnation.
When a Soul Age or Soul Level shifts within a lifetime, it is rare that the Overleaves will change, but in the rare instance that one would choose to do so, it would take a minimum of 7 years for the new design to be implemented.
[H2OSprtlvr] like shifting from a goal of growth to a goal of acceptance?
[M Entity] For a fragment to change Overleaves in any situation, a great trauma is usually the only way in which to do so.
[faldec] like a coma?
[M Entity] The body must literally close down and change its structure on levels on and below the levels known as DNA. A coma is a common means of shifting Overleaves and shifting Essences.
[H2OSprtlvr] you can’t just make a CHOICE to change your goal or Overleaves?
[Tibtyc] Essences? Like a walk.in?
[M Entity] Overleaves are biological. They can no more easily be replaced by a simple choice than can a limb or eye color.
A fragment may superimpose or USE a different Overleaf as a means to accommodate a short term agenda, but that is no more a change in Overleaves than the dying of your hair or false contact lenses.
Yes, tibty, in response to your question: as in Walk-ins.
It could be said that one is then limited if one cannot simply CHOOSE to change his Overleaves, but that is simply not the case. You already chose your Overleaves in the same way that you chose your body and genetic code. You chose your Overleaves in the same way that you chose Earth. Choices exist on many levels, extending between the levels of Essence and Personality.
[H2OSprtlvr] well…that’s where validation of my Overleaves is tricky… I see myself in one goal for awhile and then it appears I have another goal for awhile and so it leaves me confused.
[M Entity] We remind you that your GOAL is not something that describes your character, but rather as to where your character is drawn and to where it funnels its experiences, ultimately. In many instances, it is actually describing what your character IS NOT; hence its being a GOAL.
[H2OSprtlvr] I get that
[H2OSprtlvr] that makes it clearer for me… thank you
[M Entity] We can help you determine the validity of your Goal. There are definitive factors that would help with this.
It may also be of interest to you that each individual has 3 facets of Overleaves, many times not matching one another.
Beyond the True Overleaves, which are on record in the Akashic Plane, there are also those Overleaves of which you EXPECT of yourself, as well as those describing what others expect OF you. This is where many channeling discrepancies come into play if the channel is not using our access to the Akashic Records.
