QUESTION: Masters, I have been confused over a thing that started happening after my little brother died. I get automatic writing, if I hold a pen over a paper. Conversations, stories, thoughts, even symbols, all sorts of messages from different sources but mainly my brother. My worry is, is it even real or I’m just going mad? How to keep my ego aside if it is real? How to establish my trust to myself and my pen and what to do exactly with this gift? I know I might be able to sort all this out myself, but asking you was a thought. ~Manta, Finland
ANSWER: Communication between the dimensions takes many forms. Some people get pictures; some get thoughts; others hear voices or have the message channeled through their bodies into a writing instrument and then formalized on paper. None of these methods can occur if the recipient isn’t allowing it to happen.
When your little brother went Home, you loved him so much that you wished to maintain contact. He also wanted to be able to give you advice. When you are relaxed, or in a semi-meditative state, he easily enters into your consciousness and uses your body. Most of the writings have been from him. They have come through from the personality you remember as your brother, but also from his spirit, which has had other lives as well and may appear to be some other individual.
Messages coming from spirit of one source or another are hard to validate with human scientific certainty. You must see what feelings these missives bring. Do they resonate with you? Do they feel like what the person you knew would say?
Real or not real? In whose reality? To you they may be very real, but to someone who did not know your brother, or who does not believe in life after death, they will be fantasy. Concern yourself only with how you identify with these words. And why would your ego become involved at all? Thousands of people can communicate with spirits – all can if they try and believe they will be able to.
Stop worrying about it. If it makes you uncomfortable, put it aside for a while. Or, you can let it happen whenever it starts and put the writings away to read at some other time and see how you feel about them then. A word of advice: As this process begins, put the intention out to the universe that you wish to receive messages only from beings of the light. Spirits will never make demands or tell you what to do; they will only offer advice.
You have a great opportunity to do a service for others by being a conduit for communication between spirits and beings still in body. See if this develops. You have no obligation to do anything. Just let life flow around you and see how you fit in.
