Free Will – The Bubble of Creation
©2009 Tiffany Snow
Imagine a child blowing a large soap bubble and as it leaves the wand it slowly hangs in the air, iridescent and beautiful. Now the child takes his wand and passes it through the bubble one more time, making smaller bubbles from the big one. He blows again, and a myriad of little bubbles stream forward, each iridescent and beautiful, each made from the same original material, yet each floating off into the air individually and separate from the large bubble they started from. You have just envisioned how God made free will and the universe’s first creations.
In the beginning, all was of God; there was not a place that Divine Love was not. He was complete and whole within himself, lacking nothing. But similar to a loving couple who decides to have children to share their love, God chose to create. In order to do this he had to make a bubble separate from himself so the thoughts and actions would not be governed by him. God did not want clones, nor robots simply acting out a program, but individual opportunities for love to grow, to expand, to express itself and find and experience the best way to share more love, and to create more ways of expressing good and greater good. This bubble was free will.
Angels were the first creations, and each has free will. All the Angels are a spark off God’s Flame. Each knew from the beginning the difference between kindness and wickedness, between light and dark, and between good and evil. The Angels participated with their Father in forming more creation in the universe, including the earth. “Then God said, let us make man in our image, in our likeness…” (Genesis 1:26) and mankind was created, also with free will, and in the image of God. “In the image of God” does not mean the same as God, but rather an image like a mirror reflection. In each of us our spirit has the ability to reflect kindness, forgiveness, generosity, sharing, etc., and this is the image of the Love of our Father. We are not God, just as the Angels are not God, but we were created by him and from him; similar to a person having been born because of the genes of their physical father and mother, yet they are a different same person than their dad or mom, and they have their own thoughts and preferences. Humans are also a spark off the Divine Flame, our spirit, like the Angels, were directly created by Divine will.
Besides free will, there is the misuse of free will. Free will works like this: if a person desires ice cream they may drive to a parlor and choose between any number of flavors in any number of cones, with any kind of candies or toppings. The combination they want depends on who they are as individuals and their own taste, and they may try all kinds of blends before they find the one that delights and expresses them the best. The misuse of free will is a person driving to the parlor, taking out a gun and shooting the attendant. Just as there are laws in place in our towns and countries to us help us keep and enjoy our freedoms, there are also healthy perimeters on free will.
Just as we know in our spirit it is not right for a person to kill another person, we were created to feel uneasiness and trouble within us when we are rubbing against the limits. And this is not because of cultural or religious training; knowing the basics of right and wrong is already created within. The Ten Commandments (the basic “law”) in the Old Testament were written down on stone tablets for Moses to remind the Israelite people of what is written in the hearts of every man, no matter who they are. “Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them.” (Romans 12:14-16) And just as a criminal pays for their crimes for their poor choices, any choice for good or evil has a ripple effect of consequences back to us. Yet in the beginning when mankind was first made, it was much easier to see what the good and greater good choices of love were. At that time we had full clarity and connection with our Big Bubble, God. And in that same brightness and love, there was full and complete communication, acceptance and unity. But now, it is harder to discern what our best choices are. Why is this so?
A misuse of free will is what happened with our original parents Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. And the misuse of free will is what occurred in the heavens when Holy Angels turned against the Love of God, and made themselves rebellers, or demons. Many have thought that the fallen Angel Satan offered Adam and Eve free will, but this was just tempting into misuse the free will they already had. “The serpent said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’ ” “You will not surely die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”” (Genesis 3) The demon lied. He said that God was keeping something from them that they should have, and to further expand their knowledge there should be no barriers on free will, which in this case was like going to the ice cream parlor then shooting themselves in the head. Choosing to cross the line put humanity in a place of becoming a dark bubble, a contaminated place of imperfection that we did not get from our Father. It is the reason why good choices are harder for us to perceive, our spiritual clarity is clouded, and even the physical body housing the spirit now dies instead of continuing to renew.
The ripple effect of the choices of our original parents were passed onto us like a bad gene. It is as if the misuse of free will put them in prison, so we as their kids were born in the cell with them. It became a no-win situation for us, a generational bondage that no one in our family line could heal, because they were all inside the bars too. So one of those created outside of the human family had to come to our rescue, we needed a savior with a key. The life of the one we know as Jesus Christ came and unlocked the prison. Before him, no one could even go to the core essence of Father. That meant no matter how long we lived, nor how many times, the burden of darkness on our shoulders was too great. We kept trying to polish the basic facets of love over and over and still could not come before the Presence of Light and Love. Jesus became the karmic redemption for all of humanity (read more in the article Why Jesus’ Life is Important Beyond Religion at TiffanySnow.com).
So how is our bubble now? It is an important question for each of us. We can still get holes in the bubble of free will. Sometimes the holes are punched through from the outside. This can occur by physical abuse, emotional abuse, or sexual abuse. Sometimes we punch holes in it ourselves from the inside out. This can occur in many ways such as; times of high emotion (anger, fear, or even grief), addictions, willful sin (doing things we know we shouldn’t do but doing them anyway), some medications, severe lack of self-confidence, unforgiveness towards others, self and even situations, and choosing fear over love. Holes open us up to manipulation from the unHoly Angels. They attack humans the same way they have for thousands of years – they focus on destroying physical health, relationships and finances. This not only hurts God, but can distract and confuse us from becoming the true potential that God created us to be, that bright shiny bubble learning more and more about Love.
When free will is breached, it is like having a nagging voice constantly whispering in our ear destructive and negative things. For example: we will never have long-term loving relationships, never accomplish the dreams and goals in our heart, never have full physical health or abundance, that we will always have to watch for the next shoe to drop, etc. This creates a war in our hearts, because we know in our spirit that these things are not really how we want to feel or live our lives – we were created to have happy, healthy lives full of abundance in all good things. Keep in mind that this negative voice is not you; it is a trick, a lie. And you can shut it down, heal any injured or manipulated areas, and have peace and joy again by doing special Deliverance prayers; these help heal the holes and get off anything on you that is not of light and love. You can also recognize what has caused these holes and stop anything that opens you to more attack. Having the insight on how manipulation can happen also gives you the ability to be more forgiving to yourself and others when actions and words have not been kind.
One more breach in the bubble that can occur is by ancestral curses or generational bondage being passed down through human family lines. These can be seen by repetitive physical, mental or emotional troubles recurring in our parents, grandparents or great grandparents. It might present itself as a physical disease (cancer, diabetes…) or an emotional one (depression, anger…) or a number of recurrent unhealthy things. Again, there is a special prayer that can be said to free us from this difficulty. It is important to remember that in each place where we might have a problem, we can use our gift of free will to call upon the One that created us and ask for help – and it will be there, every time. The assistance might come through another person, or through prayer and direct connection with God, or through information presented to you as an article or book, but it will come. Using your free will and holding whatever is placed before you up to God will let you discern where the information is coming from, if it is of love or not, and if it is right for you or not. For all things of Love will resonant deep inside you, anything promoting misuse of free will or of manipulation will not. And the brighter we are, the more we will feel the uneasiness and trouble within us when we are rubbing against the limits. For each of us is that little bubble of free will streaming forward, each an iridescent and beautiful child of God, journeying in our unique and individual way toward Love. END
