Manifesting good and bad for lessons

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

intention, believing that intention will happen and then doing the work to help bring that intention to reality. It feels like there can be a danger to this process. What if the intentions come from a negative perspective? For example, a person has an inflated sense of self, wants to dominate, be acknowledged as the undisputed leader in his/ her field and uses any means to do so. This overconfidence and conviction in beliefs seems to bring the intentions into reality at the detriment to others. While someone who is under confident or tentative in beliefs could be severely penalized. It seems like confidence and believing are key to creating your life above all other qualities. Why is that ranked higher than other qualities? It seems like this system creates undue suffering. ~Anne, US

ANSWER: You have explained the manifestation process, but you don’t understand that the sole purpose is for that individual soul to create the circumstances that provide the necessary environment for their chosen lessons. Not all lessons are positive. Each soul is on their own journey and, therefore, only able to manifest for their lifetime, and sometimes the lessons may be negative.

You have mentioned some different human characteristics that enable the soul to experience learning. A soul’s lessons are not dependent upon any one else. Souls who are sharing a timeline with others chose that period because they were aware of what the others were going to be working on. Some chose to be there because they wished to observe the opposite of the traits they embody: a meek person watching an overconfident one, for example.

What one soul is doing influences another only if they allow it to do so. There is no ranking of one lesson as any more important than another. The soul varies their choices from time to time, and sometimes works with other souls to allow them to experience a dynamic incident. It isn’t causing suffering, only the dynamics requested. The one affected wouldn’t be present if they had not chosen to place themselves in that situation.

Life’s struggles

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

QUESTION: Masters, I’m struggling with life. I think I always have. I feel like a square peg in a round hole. As I get older, I seem to isolate myself more. I’ve lost all my oomph and don’t know how to get it back. My daughter says I am naive and was born in the wrong century. Interacting with people stresses me. I was unsuccessful in the profession I trained for, self-sabotage and mental health issues didn’t help. My childhood was abusive, but I see that now as a life lesson I chose. Are you permitted to give me a hint as to my life’s purpose? Does it possibly involve the Spiritualist Church? ~Caroline, Ireland

ANSWER: Your abusive childhood formed a pattern in which you feel trapped. Your mental issues and the self-deprecating and self-sabotaging behavior have kept you from developing a sense of who you are. You still identify with that fearful, controlled child who could make no decisions for yourself.

Your purpose is to accept that you are a piece of Source energy with the powers and abilities to be all-powerful, all-magnificent, and all-creative. You are not naïve, but rather overly sensitive to the way you think other people see you. Your desire to please others to avoid being punished has shaped your entire life. You can see this in your interactions with, and avoidance of, other people.

When you were working, you were so conscious of other people and their demands that you let that direct what you were doing, even if it was not what you had been hired to do. This sabotage further complicated the way you felt about yourself, seeing only that you were unsuccessful in everything you tried.

It is time to understand yourself, who you are: a soul having a human experience and finding out ways to enjoy this life. The Spiritualist Church could be of great assistance in discovering what your journey could be like. Since you shun making decisions so as not to be responsible for anything, replacing old indecisions with religious dogma is a gentle transition.

But with this new step, don’t do anything or accept anything unless it feels like it resonates with you. If you follow certain procedures and then they become burdensome, release them and go on to something else. This is just a beginning – your training wheels, which you will not need forever.

Working out the “kinks”

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

QUESTION: Masters I would like to know why last year when things were aligning like a miracle and I knew for the first time what was my mission I made steps backwards instead of entering in that new frequency that was giving me enlightenment, new place, new job and most of all being with the person I love. Why did I block? I feel I betrayed myself. I feel the universe, God and my father (that passed away) were helping me by pointing the right direction and by opening my heart and the connection with my soul. I feel I waited millions of lives to reach this moment of synchronicity. Why did I choose to be passive and attached to material things, instead of being brave and follow what my soul was saying? Why not even love gave me enough motivation to brake with old patterns? I feel lost. What should I do? ~Gioia, Italy

ANSWER: You have chosen to deal with lessons that constantly make you over-analyze what you are doing. Whenever you start to “feel”, you step back because you don’t have control over your feelings like you do over your thoughts and it scares you. You then stop everything and run it over and over again in your head instead of following your heart and living what is possible.

One of the problems last year was facing too much all at the same time. With each new step you rejoiced in it, and then when the next came along you did not maintain the energy of the prior. You judged what you thought was more important.

Part of spiritual enlightenment is to disconnect from the third-dimensional ego and enter pure, loving evaluation. In order to do this, you have to release all societal judgment, which is controlled by the ego. No longer grade, rate, and judge everything in your life. Nothing is better than, worse than, more important than, or inferior to anything else. They are all just part of the experiences of life that provide the fodder for exercising your freedom of choice. Can you learn from them or not? That is the only thing that need concern you.

Material things, including physical love, are not needed on the spiritual journey of a soul, but they do provide lessons with which you may understand your purpose in coming. Use your wisdom to exercise freedom of choice between negative and positive energy, which is the basis of all learning on Earth.

Another of your personal lessons involves self-confidence and self-love. You are more comfortable allowing someone else to make your decisions for you rather than taking responsibility for them. Self-love involves accepting that what is happening to you is by choice – and loving yourself for setting up these lessons.

Don’t shy away from the fears and the doubts. Don’t let them stop you dead in your tracks. Face them and see why you called them to yourself.
