These changes marked the beginning of the process known as Ascension, the reverting of the human to the state enjoyed before the Fall of Atlantis: living in the 5th dimension, and more. One important element of this is knowing you have a soul blueprint. In this message we look to what has been shared about the Soul Blueprint.
