Part of that process is aligning one's lower levels of the soul with the higher. The parts have to fit together. Some of the things I am experiencing internally have very deep roots. The are centered in adult incidents but those incidents seem to have been made possible by issues that occurred much earlier. Think of them like rocks hitting your windshield. They cause damage that can't be seen. When cold water hits the windshield, it cracks.
I am now cracked. Grin.
Once those cracks are filled in, perhaps there will be a greater level of manifestation.
So why do we need to be cracked, exposed and repaired to do this? Beats me.
