We have been taught, throughout millennia, that beings, angels, spirits, and higher powers watch over us, peering down on us from some other plane or walk with us physically monitoring our every move.  And this is partially true.  We are monitored by our teachers and support team very closely.  But it is rarely done on the physical plane, because very little that is useful can be gleaned by them in this way without interacting with us directly which is rarely helpful and could actually cause irreparable harm depending on the soul.  Instead our soul books are available to our support team and teachers and the embodied life section actively supports their interaction not only by providing sentient up to date details on all aspects of our life, but also through projections for possible future actions and ramifications. Monitoring us in this way allows all vested parties to act in our best interest using the best means possible to achieve maximum positive results.  This does not mean that our prayers, cries, or desires are ignored.  It just means that the team has a resource to utilize that allows them to see the whole picture in a way we as embodied souls cannot and to act in our best interest.

Each of us is a being of light.  We are unique individuals whose lives help create and sustain the wonder and the majesty that is the universe we know and all that we don’t.  Our existence is a fundamental part of everything and the numinous would be lessened if we did not exist.  An essential part of being sentient beings is our sovereignty over our own beingness.  We have the right to think, feel, act, and live how we choose.  Free Will is a phrase I use to refer to this enormous gift.  It is something that guides all interactions between beings almost as much as the unconditional live that emanates from and connects all of us.

Free Will is a very large consideration when working with a soul that is embodied.  The soul must be allowed to make its own choices, live its own successes and failures, and make mistakes, without the interference of its support team or teacher.  This is the reason why contracts between the parties are struck.  They set the boundaries for what support, help, and intervention is allowed during an embodied life and what can be offered.  While a healer or teacher or peer may want to intervene in a certain situation, they cannot do so without explicit permission from that soul.  The Embodied Life section of our soul book, in these cases, has the ability to act as our advocate giving permission for intervention and support up to a certain point.  This section of our soul book actively works on our behalf, retaining a level of sentience in order to, of its own accord, grant permission for additional support to be provided in certain instances.  Examples would be instances of people in traumatic situations such as car accidents, home invasions, or battles during war hearing voices that give them instructions on what to do or seeing people or angels who give them encouragement in order to survive when survival was improbable.  Another example would be the beings that appear in the midst of a terrible event such as a hand appearing to help a hiker who has slipped and is hanging on the side of a cliff. Without being pulled up they would have fallen, but when they have been rescued and they look to thank the Good Samaritan, no one is there.  Or the person who appears on the stairs of a high-rise on fire.  Smoke obscures their face, but they help the elderly and mothers with children down to safety, then disappear and no one seems to have actually seen them.  Without permission from our soul books these interventions would not be possible because they interfere with the boundaries of interactions we have set before embodying.  Most people do not wish to see or remember beings that are not corporeal during their embodiment but our soul books are able to hand out “hall passes” to support beings if the issue is critical as in these examples.

This section of the soul book can and does take the initiative on our behalf as well.  When teachers, support staff, or soul group members are not aware of or are not responding strongly enough to a situation the Embodied Life section can and does reach out to them informing them of the situation in detail and making a formal request for action. This request may reach out beyond those individuals to others with specialties such as healers, architects, communications experts, creators who have intimate knowledge of an item, eco system, or creatures, or others as necessary.  These can be brought up to speed and asked to help the soul as the situation warrants and be granted permission to act.  For in the end no one knows the soul better than the soul itself and the soul book is an integral part of the soul.
