Our Heavenly Father loved us so much that he wanted to share all that had with us. Consequently, He created a plan for us. So, we could become like Him. If we followed this plan, we would come to earth to gain a body (like Him) and be tested to prove we were worthy to return an live with him.
As part of this test, we would pass through a veil that would cause us to forget our past life with our Heavenly Parents. We would then be given the freedom to choose, act, and live however we wished. God would test us to see whether we would seek to know Him, love Him, and obey His commandments (or not). We would have the opportunity to learn, grow, and have experiences that were never possible for us previously. We would be given the opportunity to become parents ourselves and have children–A test to see how well we would do. We would be given the freedom to choose however we wanted to live our lives.
Our, all knowing, omnipotent, Heavenly Father knew that we would not live perfect lives though. And, in order for us to return and live with Him again, we needed a way to repent and “become clean” again.
Did you realize that you lived long before you were ever born into this world? Did you know that you had a Spirit body? You had a head, hands, legs, etc. Your Spirit was not void and without form (like a cloud or mist). You had a body. You also had a gender–the same one you have now (the same gender that you’ll always have).
In fact, your Spirit body was a lot like the body you have now–without flaws. Your Spirit body would be easily recognizable to anyone that you know now.
Think about that for a moment: You have always existed, and you will always exist. Not only is this true of you, but this fact is also true of everyone you will ever meet. Like you, they lived before this earth-life.
In this pre-earth life, you were born as a Spirit child to Heavenly Parents. You have a Heavenly Father and a Heavenly Mother. They were your parents. You are their child. They are perfected, Holy beings. They are Gods. You were born to them as precious daughter or son: You are literally a daughter of God or son of God. You grew-up in their presence. Living in their kingdom. You are Royalty. You are a their child. They gave you a name. They loved you then, and they continue to love you now.
Our Heavenly Father is a man. Our Heavenly Mother is a women. Our Heaven Parents have bodies. Their bodies are not like our bodies now though. We were Spirits back then. They were not Spirits like us. Unlike us, they had bodies of flesh and bone–similar to the bodies like we have now. Except, their bodies are perfect: They never grow old. They never die.
If we were to see them now, we would shock ourselves how easily recognizable their faces are to us. You would recognize them as easily as you would recognize your own earthly mom and dad.
You were born to them as a Spirit child–their literal offspring. Now that you understand your relation to them, you must also realize that this is true of everyone. Everyone around you is a daughter or son of Heavenly Parents. Everyone around you is literally a sibling to you: They are a Spirit Sister or Spirit Brother. Everyone that you have met or will ever meet in this life is literally of your Heavenly Family. You lived with your siblings for eons and eons of time. You knew them. They knew you. You spent eons of time living together with your Heavenly Family.
Ok…. So, you found yourself here. Maybe you’ve found yourself at a cross-roads in life, you’re going through a hard time, or a loved-one has passed-away. For whatever reason, you’ve found yourself here. Don’t believe it was an accident. It wasn’t. Perhaps you’ve had a persistent thought or feeling your whole life that “Something is missing”–a yearning, a driving force telling you that “Something is not right”.
Well, I’m going to tell you what that “something” is. But, this isn’t going to be a 5 minute read. There’s going to be a lot information you’re going to have to digest; and you’re going to have to do some work too.
I hope you’re willing to take the time to hear me out. I promise that if you do, your life is going to change for the better. And, you’ll finally figure-out what that yearning is. So, buckle your seat belt.
As we go on this journey together, please, please, please ask questions. There is never a dumb question. If you have a question, 20 other people have the same question–they’re just too shy to ask. Feel free to register and ask questions. I will answer them as soon as I can.
