Dealing with life lessons

QUESTION: Masters I would like to ask something of a very personal origin that even causes me shame, but I honestly cannot find an answer to that. I’m gay and I have a hard time connecting sexually with other partners, especially if it does not involve feeling. But I have a “fetish” that I do not understand where it came from and why it’s so strong in me. I feel attraction when I see men sleeping, even there are porn sites with this category, I believe that other gay people feel this attraction too, but it makes me sick to think about it, I suffer because I feel it is wrong to feel this kind of attraction where in my imagination I would be abusing men who were asleep. Has this had any past cause of life or was it something that came into being in this life? I do not understand this behavior. ~Luis, BRAZIL

ANSWER: You chose what, to most of society, is a very interesting series of life lessons. There is nothing wrong with your choices, and it is just for you to decide what you can be comfortable with during the remainder of this cycle.

Your major problem is a lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and understanding all the implications of your conscious and unconscious desires. You can dream all you want, and nothing is wrong with that. It is only a problem with society if you jump across the line that demarcates what is considered criminal. Thinking about it, talking about it, and engaging in it with other consenting adults is perfectly all right.

Seeing someone sleeping or unconscious removes all the fear from you that they will not respond as you desire. As you have found out from your research, you are not alone in these attractions. Many want a safe environment for their sexual outlets, and a non-responsive person provides that. Unless you force yourself on an unwilling individual, there is nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about.

You have never chosen this type of lesson before. It was chosen by you to spend time sensing the feelings involved and working out a way to accept and live with them. Enjoy the bodily reactions that your dreams allow you. Before you ever decide to act on your fetish, find other like-minded people with whom to do so.

QUESTION: Masters, I am so angry with all Spiritual Guides. I don’t know why I am experiencing the life I have, but whatever the reasons are, I don’t want this lesson/life anymore. I really want to find a romantic relationship, but it has never happened to me. I am asexual, gay, have a very particular personality, struggle with mental health issues, and I am not within the society’s views of beauty, so I am aware of the difficulty. But even when I met compatible people, no one ever chooses me. For many years I was holding out hope, but now I hate being in this situation and I beg every day to find ANYTHING. Whatever person, even an abuser, will work. I can’t take this bad life path anymore. Why is no one listening? Why am I not allowed to change this?? (I tried, in all physical, spiritual, and energetic ways) ~Gabbie, USA

ANSWER: Have you finished throwing your little temper tantrum? There is no need to blame anyone but yourself for the life you are living because you planned it before entering that body. No one makes decisions for a soul’s journey but that soul. Once on Earth, each soul, now a human being, creates their own reality.

A reality is controlled by the beliefs you choose to have regulate and control your life. In the beginning these come from parents, teachers, and society. You have to learn that they can be exchanged for something you desire. Creating a reality occurs by accepting that you have the ability to manifest things necessary to complete your chosen lessons.

Your first job is to accept that you are a piece of Source energy and are beautiful and deserving of love. The problem is that you can only love another to the degree that you love yourself, and with your current state of self-hatred, no one wants to be anywhere near your energy.

You are wallowing in self-pity and insisting that someone else has caused all this and they need to change things immediately. Others don’t have to listen; it is up to you to just believe and take action. Your attitude is like saying you don’t want to watch what is on television, but you are waiting for someone else to come and change the channel instead of getting up and doing it yourself.

“Good” changes cannot occur in negativity. For this reason, you must learn to step away from negative thinking and activities and bring in positive, loving energy. Your essence and the rest of the nonphysical universe is composed of unconditional love. Every time you start getting depressed, upset, or condemning of your condition, stop and relax into unconditional love because it is available all around you. In that state, examine what is happening. Send away the negative feelings and replace them with loving energy. This will – and you can – change your environment.

Dealing with life lessons

QUESTION: Masters, I have been dealing with chronic debilitating nerve pain. A cousin recommended a healer that helped her and her husband with several health issues. The healer thought my nerve pain was due to a dysfunction in my stomach. He recommended a plant supplement, maca. This removed my pain for several weeks, but the pain returned. I had many long-distance healing sessions with him, but my nerve pain remained. He had known many things about me that he could not have researched. So, I was surprised that I didn’t receive healing. May I ask, what went wrong in this situation? ~Anne, USA

[In compliance with US law, the Spirit Masters do not diagnose or prescribe for medical conditions. Their observations are spirit-based and concern life lessons. Readers may like to review details of the Masters’ booklet/ebook on healing.]

ANSWER:  A number of things have occurred here. First, you are dealing with a life lesson in which it is up to you to figure out why your unconscious believes you need to experience this pain. Hint: it has to do with guilt from some of your actions in a past life where you inflicted pain on others. Second, you have had difficulties with your body integrating nutrition, and that is why the maca worked only until your life lesson overpowered it. Be kind to your body.

When you have a powerful lesson and try to circumvent it by finding some way to cope with the alert signs in another fashion, your unconscious higher self will not let you just ignore it. At first, it thinks maybe you are dealing with the warning signs so that the problem is easier to see, but then when you don’t attack the initial cause, it helps reinforce the issue.

This is a spiritual, or life-learning journey, puzzle. The way to approach understanding is to ask yourself each time the pain appears: What is it that I am feeling deep inside? What am I fixated on? Go beneath the physical sensations themselves into the mental, emotional body. If a picture, a saying, a memory pops up, follow it to its origin.

Finding the causative action may happen during a deep meditation, a brief flashback, a déjà vu experience, or under hypnosis. Examining your state of mind at the time of the initial incident will allow you to see what has stuck around to cause you this reaction today. You need to examine forgiveness for yourself, removal of guilt, and other issues such as betrayal and abandonment.

The pain is like a ringing telephone. The noise is to get your attention and have you answer the call to see what you might be missing. Find the connections, understand them, and then you can reset your body to stop being a signaling device.
