Mother Earth has tasks to carry out as she prepares for Ascension, and will endeavour to make changes to the Earth in readiness. Of necessity some will cause the movement of people to safer areas, and be assured that where there is a loss of life it will have been predictable and the souls concerned aware of it. It will be part of their necessary experiences and therefore agreed beforehand. Nothing really happens by chance although it often seems that way. Every soul will have discussed their needs prior to incarnating and know the nature of challenges to be presented to them. Progress is therefore orderly and done in such way that no soul is faced with more than they can deal with, and you always have your Guides with you who oversee your progress. Often what you call coincidence is set up for you to ensure you do not miss an opportunity to carry out your life plan.
Remember that you are powerful Beings, and as the vibrations increase you will find that what you set your mind on will almost certainly manifest at some time. Some events are already part of your life plan but you still have freewill where many things are concerned. Providing it does not go against your Life Plan, there is every possibility you will experience what you have in mind. For example you will also have arranged who you will meet who can fit in with your needs, and that covers your partner to be. Equally, if it has been decided that marriage is not for you, then it will not happen. It applies all round to everyone and covers events that will ensure you experience exactly what you need to continue your evolution.
As you mix with others who are also experiencing according to their Life Plan, you do not in fact know the true soul from the outer appearances, but only the body that they have for that particular incarnation. Neither can you know if they were for example a Royal or a peasant in their last lifetime, and in fact in that sense you never know who you might be meeting. Few souls have an awareness of the nature of their previous lives, and it ensures that they devote their time to the current one without distractions. Every Life Plan is especially made for your needs and to ensure that karmic responsibilities are met. Those who have lagged behind may face more challenges as they often have more karma to clear, and until it is they cannot move very far forward.
