The Light Collective: Time is an illusion

This is the third in a series of eight articles based on The Eight Principles of Inner Peace as channeled by the Light Collective through renowned intuitive Kathryn Harwig. These principles are simple, yet profound, and apply to all beings in the cosmos. The essence of all eight principles is inner peace, and personal empowerment – the powerful ability of humans to create the world of their choosing.

The third principle is: Time is an illusion. The Light Collective explains that time is merely a measuring device created by humans as a way of ordering our lives. It’s not linear, but rather like a porous structure. There are a multitude of dimensions, making a multi-layered world. It’s entirely possible to reincarnate into the future, or to reincarnate into the past. In between your lives on this planet, you may choose to go to other planets or other dimensions and become different entities.

When you go back to spirit you are not just a personality, but you are all the selves that you have been, all the selves that you will be, and all the selves that you can be.

If you ask the Light Collective what will happen, they can predict based only on your personality as of that date, for you have total and complete control, and you cannot only change your future, you can change your past. Because the future can’t be fully predicted, it is best to ask “What is my best course of action in this particular time?”

While we are living here on earth, these concepts are difficult to grasp. One concept we can understand is that the present is all we have. The past is gone and the future will never be here. What we do now determines our lives – we create our lives in the now. Grieving over past events, or worrying about possible future events, brings fear into our lives and keeps us from living and creating our lives now.

The Light Collective gives us the following practical advice concerning time:

“If you remember that time is an illusion, then you also remember that it is your tool – and if you desire, you have control of your time. Your language dictates to you much of what you do. When you say things like “I am running out of time” or “I don’t have time for this” or “Time is going too fast” that makes it so. It would be wise for you, if you were feeling that way, to say “I have plenty of time” or “Time is of no meaning to me” or “Whatever I need to do will be done in the time I wish to give it.”

The Light Collective also gives us some startling news concerning our use of the concept of time as it relates to our life span:

“As your physicists would tell you, time is of no consequence. However, you belong to a group of humanity, and humanity has defined certain things as time. For example, humanity has defined that you will look a certain way at 10 or 20. What is happening is your definition of aging has changed. Because time is an illusion, it is not that time is changing – it is your belief system.

“Once a core group defines age in a different fashion, then your body will understand and respond to that. A thousand years ago, you did not believe you would live until you were 40.

“In your current age that you now reside, you will start to believe that you will live to 100 to 120. Your body will figure out where you are and you will become younger. If you are 50, you will realize you are halfway through your life, and then your body will say, “What does halfway through our lifetime look like?” So your bodies could become younger.”

This news means that as a retired teacher, I am only halfway through my life! It will be interesting to see how our longer life spans will affect us as individuals and as a society.
