Overview Excerpt: Do We Come from the Stars?
Have you ever looked up at the night sky, gazed at billions of twinkling stars, and pondered who else is out there? Or perhaps you’ve wondered if your family is up there blinking love and messages to you? Or, maybe you’ve seen something strange in the skies and speculated whether it was a UFO.
In this topic, we are not talking about aliens (Extra-terrestrial, ETs) as it has perhaps been presented to us through movies, books, and other scary tales. Instead, we are taking the approach that maybe we are more closely related to ETs than what has been presented.
When speaking with worldwide Coordinators in a recent meeting, we are well aware and mindful of the fact that our members from different regions around the world have widely differing backgrounds and views on this topic. It’s absolutely fine to have these widely differing views. We are all unique individuals with our own histories, backgrounds, and experiences. We recognize for some these topics will feel like quantum leaps, whereas for others they are already there!
Everything is about an individual human being’s relationship with one’s self and one’s surrounding. We’ve explored the ‘self’, and in this Overview and Deep Dive we will further explore our surroundings and our soul history.
Most of us have been told ‘we’re the only ones’, meaning no sentient life exists outside of Earth. We believe this mindset was part of an intentional narrative to keep us small and separated from the rest of the universe. Perhaps now it is time for humanity to consider the idea that there are other life forms out there, many with advanced consciousness, and that we are more connected to extra-terrestrials (ETs) than we ever imagined.
Everything we see, including all sentient life, was created by God / Source / The Creator.
The world as we experience it with our five senses is in the 3rd dimension. We also see the moon, sun, and stars as 3D objects. But interposed on the world and other planets and galaxies within the multiverse are different dimensions which are all interconnected a bit like tuning to different channels on one’s TV or radio. All of the channels are there but we only experience one at a time depending on what we are tuned into. Occasionally, we experience interference on TV and radio where two channels flicker in and out of each other. This can happen with our interdimensional reality as well.
Let us explore these ideas from different angles, starting with some data.
Research shows that there are up to 10 billion planets just in our small galaxy that could be habitable, and there are billions, maybe even trillions, of other galaxies in the universe.
Business Insider India indicates there are 5 to 10 billion planets just in our small galaxy that could support liquid water, which in turn, could make them habitable to sentient life. These statistics are based on results from NASA’s Kepler Telescope and a simulated comparison study with European Space Agency's Gaia spacecraft.
Modern science has detected water in meteorites from Mars, so we know there was (or is) water on Mars.
According to Futurism.com, “Conservative estimates assert that the observable universe may contain as many as 5,300,000,000,000 habitable worlds—that's 5.3 trillion planets that might contain life. Of course, not all of these necessarily have the ability to contain life ‘as we know it,’ but they may harbor life ‘as we don't know it.’ ”
This data differs from what most of us have been taught, and yet when we review these numbers (and / or look at other research that is readily available), logic suggests something completely different. Based on this data, it’s hard to believe that we are the only ones. This data points to a very high probability that life exists outside of Earth.
Some people don’t want to consider other life forms because it doesn’t align with their religious beliefs, and of course, we accept this. This may be because many religions don’t talk about our star families, perhaps because it’s not taught in theology schools. And yet, going back to our statistic, we have to wonder why God would choose just Earth to create life out of the 5 to 10 billion planets in our galaxy that could be habitable?
On the other side of the spectrum, there is a school of thought that suggests humans come from the stars.
Edgar Cayce, a devout Christian and well-known American clairvoyant, touched on this topic in one of his readings, “As in the earth we find the elements are peopled, as the earth has its own moon or satellites enjoined in its environ, so is it with the other planets. The earth with its three-fourths water, with its elements, is peopled; yes. So are the various activities in other solar systems.” (Cayce Reading 541-1.) Cayce helped thousands of clients by channelling healing remedies and past life information, and he was also known for connecting with the Arcturians. He called Arcturus, “one of the most advanced civilizations in our entire galaxy,” and mentioned them 30 times in his readings.
We just may be from the stars, starseed humans, ancient aliens...
Early myths and legends suggest that ‘gods’ came from other planets and seeded life on Mother Earth and that the genetic material on our planet came from other planets. Zacharia Sitchin has done extensive research on this, including a comprehensive review of the Sumerian tablets which describe a Garden of Eden like event where the Anunnaki ‘gods’ took their own DNA and mixed it with early-man DNA from Earth.
Deep Dive Excerpt: Souls and Soul Contracts
“The Soul is not apart from Source—the Soul is a part of Source (God).”—Becky Parkes.
The concept of the soul can be difficult to define, and everyone may have their own unique perspective. In this topic, we have included different quotes and concepts to help quantify what we are trying to describe and to offer opportunities for contemplation.
Rumi said, “You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.”
The energy of the entire ocean is in each drop. The same is true for the individual soul’s relationship with God / Source. God / Source Consciousness creates smaller versions of itself, which is called spirit. Each spirit becomes personalized, and this is the soul.
Imagine that the ocean is God / Source Consciousness. Each drop from the ocean is like a spirit. If we give each individual drop its own unique colour and shape and tune the drop with its individual frequency, it becomes a discrete package called the soul. The soul then has the magnificent opportunity to experience life in different bodies (usually one at a time), to gain specific experiences and make choices which can change its depth, colour, and frequency. In doing so, the soul not only alters itself but also shares that with the entire ocean (God / Source). So it enriches not only itself and the drops around it but the whole of the ocean (God / Source).
Every living creature has a soul. The soul is ageless and timeless, infinite and immortal; it is the part of us that continues on even after the death of one’s physical body. The soul is the part of us that is connected with God / Source.
Somewhere along one’s spiritual journey, people yearn to learn more about their origins, their true essence, and the nature of their soul. As a part of this, some are attracted to books, videos, or hypnotherapy to uncover wisdom from the soul related to past lives and what happens in between lives.

We create new monthly spiritual topics each month. Coordinators use these topics to facilitate discussions to give members the opportunity to talk about real-life situations and to share insights, ideas and strategies. The spiritual topics are also posted on CC’s internal social connecting platform where members from around the world engage in conversation and share personal thoughts. These topics are designed to give points of discussion around self-awareness and spiritual development to enable and empower each of us to become the best version of who we are!
Prior Topics Presented
CC Members can find prior topic information on Mighty Networks, CC’s private social connecting platform.
