I am sure you have now heard of the young 15 year old boy who recently shot and killed four of his classmates and injured more in Michigan. What makes this case different is that the authorities also charged his parents. This is a most unusual case when parents are being charged. Have you wondered why it is usually boys who do the shootings and it is in the age range of 14 to 21? This age range is also the 3rd Soul Cycle of a person’s life.
When we reincarnate here on earth, we have a complete blueprint for our visit here. Most of us haven’t a clue we even have a plan or wonder if reincarnation even exists. The Soul, on its’ journey here, is on a path of learning and serving. Its’ time here is built with 7 year increments. The first Soul cycle is from ages 0 to 7 years. It is during this age range that the child is learning to just acclimate to the earth, to the family of origin and is getting used to being in the body. It clings quite strongly to the family of origin. It is at age 7 when this Soul will leave the first cycle and move to the second cycle. The transition time is one year from ages 7 to 8.
The second Soul cycle from 7 to 14 begins the journey away from the family of origin to begin getting acquainted with the rest of the world. This is where the “mind” is being developed through interaction with groups, classmates, teams etc. Again the transition out of this 2nd cycle is one year from 14 to 15.
The third Soul cycle is from 14 to 21 and begins the journey of the emotions. Here we must learn how to handle ourselves emotionally. These are the challenging teen years when emotions can be at the height of drama. This is the period of most vulnerability in a young person’s life. To complicate matters the glands are being activated during this period and add to the emotional learning experience. The young Soul is not integrated enough to make good decisions and tends to behave irrationally as it tries to handle emotions.
The fourth Soul cycle is from 21 to 28 and begins the journey of integrating the other 3 cycles. During the 20’s the Soul is integrating the “body”, the “mind” and the “emotions”. Until it gets through this period, it is not a full adult in the timeframe of the Soul’s earth development.
As most people have never heard of this timeframe, much more are interested in it, they ignore the warning lights up ahead of what they or their child will go through and when. In our Western, American society, boys are brought up to check their emotions. They are taught, unfortunately, not to cry, “be a little man”, punished for being too active and pushed in directions that their parents or peers believe will make them into “men”. They are also pushed into areas of careers that their parents want them to go into.
I had carpenters working at my house one day and one of them brought up his childhood. He was speaking of how he wasn’t allowed to cry or show weakness. I asked him how he felt about it. He just blurted out how angry it made him. One thing for sure, men/ boys are extremely sensitive creatures and in many ways more so than girls. Boys are stronger on the exterior but weaker internally. Girls are more emotional on the outside but internally much stronger.
Until we realize this pattern of soft sensitive boys, we are going to have more frustrated young men who don’t know how to handle their emotions except through anger. They can grow up to be batterers, bullies, join gangs and other macho behavior activities. Deep down they are the protectors, sensitive and caring creatures. We as adults need to be much more aware of this 3rd Soul cycle and prepare for it. Parents needs education in the various traits of young boys and help them through this 14 to 21 age period. Unfortunately, it is too late for the Michigan boy whose rage came from somewhere.
Once the Soul gets to age 28, it begins the transition out of childhood and continues on its journey of learning and imprinting all it learned every 7 years. After 28, the next Soul cycle is 35, then 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77, 84, 91, 98, 105, 112 and 119. Most of us are supposed to do the journey until 120. We don’t, however, as we ruin our bodies long before we reach 100. We have burned them out through excessive work, play and other activities on earth. Of course, there is always war and pandemics but for the most part, we take ourselves out prematurely.
It would be wonderful if our American society could help foster a better understanding of boys, young men and the importance of appreciating their sensitivity. Until society becomes more aware of this, I am sure we will have more shootings by young, confused and angry boys. They will tend to fall in this age range of 14 to 21. The 3rd Soul cycle.
