There is now a higher proportion of old souls in the world than there
has ever been before, because the old souls will be needed to help
the world survive. They can be found everywhere, permeated in the
oddest places. The old souls will be in communication with each other
and they are the ones that will help things hold together and
Nostradamus states that his communication is intended to help us avoid
the worst-case scenarios of his visions that could be averted with
great determination and resolve. The time of troubles will be a very
trying time. The spirits on the earth at this time are there by
choice to work through major amounts of karma. Living in this
stressful period will be like concentrated karma, or the equivalent
of ten average human lifetimes.
The older and more advanced spirits volunteered. Some younger spirits
were simply feeling adventurous. Others are here not because they
wanted to in their hearts, but they had to or it would be the "end of
the line for them" as far as spiritual advancement. They're not fully
volunteers but just enforced volunteers, so to speak, because they
knew they had no other choice. Most of the people are understandably
unhappy, but some make the best of the situation and some don't.
