Having faith and taking responsibility

Tuesday, August 14th, 2018

QUESTION: Masters, I was raised in a hostile environment of hatred, disrespect, lack of love, and lack of moral values. I try to rebuild my life from the distance away from these relatives to preserve my sanity and at least trust in life. But, time after time, these relatives cast me spells so that I give up on my dreams, or that everything goes wrong in my life and finally return to them, humiliated. Masters, what do I need to do to get rid of them and what do I need to learn? ~Yvi, Brazil

ANSWER: You are not returning because of spells cast upon you by anyone but because you have little faith in your own abilities to make decisions. Any time that things don’t go the way you think they should, you put your tail between your legs, like a beaten puppy, and return to a place that is predictable to you. It is called a comfort zone. Although you don’t like what happens there, at least you know the extent of the displeasure to which you will be subjected.

When you return, you play into their manipulation of your life. You cannot be in their presence without being surrounded by their negative characteristics. They are not even attempting to understand why they feel the way they do, and everything is as they choose. They do not know that there is another aspect of life, which is unconditional love and spiritual growth.

Souls create their own reality by the belief systems on which they choose to structure their lives. Since your relatives are on the opposite side of the duality from what you seek, you have to decide what you want your life to be or just accept that you are going to be under their control.

You are a piece of Source energy and, as such, have all the powers and abilities of Source. But until you accept that as a truth, you will continue to feel as you do right now. First accept it as a possibility. Then believe it can be used by you to change your environment. Visualize what you desire and then know you have the ability to manifest and create that vision. Then start acting to put it all into play.

Put your fears and doubts aside and step up to take the responsibility of your decisions. This is your life – not an extension of your relatives’ life. Make it so.

Want to manifest everything I want

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

QUESTION: Masters, how can I manifest a more complex, convoluted, intricate outcome rather than a simple one? As in my case, I impact people with music and love over the internet. I wish I could impact more people in real life as well but in this case I need way more money than I really have, more magnetism, more people involved and a promising project in hands. In my private life, my mom prevents me from leaving my comfort zone and I’m too lazy and impatient to try anything major. I also live in a small city and I can’t even find a small group or a small office in order to begin my project. How can I visualize such a complicated outcome without getting lost in the process? ~Jorge, Brazil

ANSWER: The first step in progressing through any phase of development is learning to be realistic. It is great to lie in bed and dream of having everything exactly the way you desire it to be – but that doesn’t happen without a ton of work.

You have already admitted that you are lazy, so how can you even think that you could accomplish something before you are willing to invest all your time and energy into making it happen? It all starts and ends with your efforts.

When you are in school enrolling in a course in a subject that interests you, it doesn’t automatically make you an expert in the area. You have to spend time investigating the entire topic, learning what is necessary for success, and then continuing to study and work until it becomes second nature to you. You have done none of that.

You are just exiting the stage where everything was done for you as a child and you had no responsibility to fend for yourself. The idea that your mother is preventing you from leaving your comfort zone is ridiculous. Of course, she is doing what she thinks you need, and what she feels you are capable of handling on your own. But, buddy, every soul has freedom of choice to be where they want to be and to do what they want to do – they just have to act.

Imaging bigger dreams with more particulars isn’t sufficient to have it appear. It is continued work and faith in yourself that will get you to where you want to be. Manifestation is about using your intention and effort to complete the desired accomplishment. Manifestation does not jump from imaging to finished product in one felt swoop. Just as a building has to be erected in stages, so does an intricate life.

Spiritual agreements

Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

QUESTION: Masters, could you shed a light on spiritual agreements? I know that there was an agreement between me and this woman to be romantically together, however she has opted for another path. I dreamed about this particular relationship my entire life. And without going into details, her choice changes my life a lot and forces me to consider other possibilities that I am not comfortable with, like non-traditional relationships (e.g. polyamory) or even a life without romance. If a soul agrees to a relationship but then opts out, how can the other person still have the life they want? For people with my conditions, finding a relationship is hard and I was relying on that person to be with me; I really want a romance. Would someone else step in and eventually find their way to me, or do I have to “just deal with it”? ~Melissa, USA

ANSWER: Every soul has total freedom of choice in all aspects of their human existence. That means that they may choose to change an agreement they made with another. It is impossible to get another soul having its own physical experience to change their mind unless they agree to do so.

If one party to an agreement chooses not to fulfill the agreed actions, the other party had some forewarning before entering this life that that might occur. Of course, coming down with amnesia, you would have no recollection of such an eventuality.

Your major lesson this lifetime was being able to work through difficulties once you had set upon a course of action. Your consternation arises from your having created such strong expectations and having convinced yourself that nothing else was worth considering.

You have fixated on this individual to such a degree that you are certain you had a contract when you did not. She wanted a life of ambivalence toward sexual orientation and abhorrence of pushy, controlling people – which you have become.

You are on this life journey by yourself. Nothing anyone else does should make you feel you have been betrayed and abandoned. You are the only one responsible for your life and your lifestyle. There are no absolutes in a spiritual journey – just infinite possibilities.

Step away from your “hurt” and evaluate where you are now. The only person you can rely on is yourself. There are any number of people out there from whom you can get love. You must, however, accept and love yourself first before they will want to have anything to do with you.

Also, examine how you define yourself: “Who” are you? Are you sure of your identity? Or is this just another expectation that is limiting you in life?
