Humans tend to underestimate the number of incarnations they will have before advancing to light form, the stage where a body no longer is a learning tool.
They explore their past lives, digging about with a past life regression therapist, and remember only those that are pleasant or put their actions in a good light.
The horrific times, or times when they behaved so badly they prefer not to dwell on the matter, are not brought forward. The soul, of course, does not forget,
but the human consciousness, hearing these tales, discards them and will only allow the pleasant to come through. Incarnations run into the thousands, in the
main, before a graduation to 4th Density spiritual is achieved. Nancy is an example of someone who quickly made her orientation decision, having done so in a
little more than 1,200 lifetimes, but there are others who require 50,000 or more incarnations to firmly decide. Even then, entities may vacillate, and need to
return to 3rd Density to re-establish this decision.
Thus, most reincarnating entities on Earth have been through repeated pole shifts, or horrors of natural disasters equivalent, so this experience is not different and certainly not new. For instance, someone living on a volcanic island, during an eruption, is living through a similar horror. Or someone facing a tidal wave, or a mud slide on steep slopes, buried alive and smothering in liquid mud during their last minutes. Or someone caught in fire, burning alive, whether this is a situation nature or accident causes or done at the hands of man as was the case during the Middle Ages. Certainly, the horrors of the coming shift are no different, no more a learning tool, and all situations where the entity has choices allow movement toward determination, final determination, of the 3rd Density lesson, which is the orientation decision.
