There are many ways to view your lives.
I have found out there are 11 lives your soul will divide into to learn the main lesson we came here with.
I have found the each self of the 11 selves will come in with a theme, such as addictions. Then they work on this theme. Many will suffer and many will work it out. But don't fear you can help each other out. We now can ask help for one of the selves who has beat the addiction. Now we all have free choice to not listen or head the help but it is a valid thought ask for help. So If you are curious to know one of the others shelves ask to know or be introduce to one who is in the know. All is of spirit.
