Do We Have Free Will?

I received a really interesting question about whether or not I believe that we have free will or do things just happen?

First of all, I do not think that things just happen. I've learned that in many different ways, one of them was a shroom trip I had many years ago where I heard over and over again - there are no coincidences, there are no coincidences, there are no coincidences. Pronounced in different voices over and over for hours so that I would never forget and I never did. I also seen how others have been a mirror to me, so that I could see myself and transcend my limiting beliefs and change the way that I perceive reality. To change the way I create reality.

So I do believe that I am a co-creator of my reality.

But do I believe that I have free will?

Well to be honest no I don't. I believe that we create our reality from our subconscious and how often am I aware of my subconscious? Sometimes but most of the time, I'm on autopilot like everyone else. I'm in my thoughts and my perspective and trying to figure out the way forward.

To be honest if I had free will I would have gone back to Source already years ago but I couldn't as I haven't been able to transcend it all yet. So how does that leave me with a free will? How did my toddler self feel herself free from her surroundings being completely at the mercy of my caregivers. Yes I believe that my higher self chose my parents and that they chose me but once in body, once in the incarnation how much free will do I really have?

Or is free will what we are working towards? To make the unconscious conscious, to let go of the unconscious patterns so that I can become aware of what I am creating in my life? So that I can transcend it all to the point where I know with every fibre of my being that there is nothing else. Just the big I AM and nothing else. Just One

So we have the option to experience free will if we walk the path of transcending it all and once we transcend it all then what's the need of free will anyhow? Once you're one with God, there won't even be a need to have a will because you won't perceive yourself as separate anymore so what would be the need of the individual will?

Yet I think we have the option to choose love over fear at each moment of our existence and maybe that's what free will is really about. Do I choose to believe in fear and the illusions or do I trust in God and love, the ultimate goodness of creation itself? From that point of view I believe we always have a choice.

What do you believe? Do you believe in free will? Do you believe things just happen and that creation is random or what?

Let me know, I'm curious about this discussion and how others relate to their own creator power.

Much Love, Kristina
