Animals sensing spirits

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Q. Masters, my dog goes to my deceased husband’s chair and dances wildly around in circles, wagging his tail and whimpering. Is he going crazy?

A. Dear One, have you noticed anything else unusual happening at the same time as this behavior? Such as a familiar scent? Or the chair moving slightly? Or even the television coming on? You both are receiving a visit from your husband’s spirit. Your dog senses his presence immediately because he doesn’t have any pre-conceived notions, like the fact that your husband is no longer physical. Your dog just wants to greet his master and play.

Your husband is merely checking up on the family to be sure that all is going well. He doesn’t want you to be worrying about him. He wants you to know that he is well and thinking about you constantly, and that it is high time for you to get on with the rest of your life. He loves you dearly.

Twin flames

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Q. Masters, there is a person at work to whom I am drawn. The first time we sat down and talked we went on for hours and found we have the same interests and ideas about almost everything. Is this person my twin flame?

A. Happy One, first we need to make clear the difference between twin flames and soul mates. Twin flames are like Siamese twins. Let us explain that statement. The last division that occurred as Source was creating you as an individual soul took place between you and the energy known as your “twin flame.” It is the only soul who can make you feel complete, because it was once an intimate part of you. If both you and your twin flame are in body form at the same time and meet each other, you will immediately seek to spend all your time together because you feel whole for the first time.

Soul mates are all the souls who were created as individuals about the same moment as you. They can number as many as 144 souls. Think of an extended family tree: These souls would be your parents, grandparents, siblings, and cousins if you all were to incarnate at the same time. These are the souls with whom you make your most important contracts before you incarnate. You trust your soul mates with ensuring that you will experience exactly what you chose. These are not just immediate human family members and spouses, but also that teacher who influenced your career path, or the drunk driver who handicapped you so that you might experience helplessness. The soul mates with whom you regularly interact number between 12 and 36 souls.

Because you frequently spend time on Earth with these same souls during different incarnations, whenever you meet one of them, immediately he or she will seem familiar to you. Your co-worker may be a soul mate and you are both having memories of the past and also seeing how similar you are in the present. Be aware of this contact. See where it can lead you and what adventures together it brings you. Enjoy!

Needing to control others

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Q. Masters, no matter what I seem to do I cannot get my spouse to give up his drinking and smoking. It is very disruptive to our family life. What can I do to convince him that this destructive behavior must cease?

A. Dear long-suffering wife, it’s time that you admitted to yourself that from the very beginning you overlooked your husband’s destructive tendencies because you were confident that you could get him to change his ways. As we have been teaching throughout all our messages, every soul has complete freedom to choose how they live their incarnation. In order for your husband to amend what you consider his wayward ways, he must choose to make the changes.

You are attempting to control the life of another, and control can only be exercised with his consent. From the very beginning of your relationship, your husband was never deceitful with you. You were aware of his partying lifestyle and were right there with him at the start.

We commend you for now realizing that numbing your senses doesn’t allow you to go inside and connect with your inner self. This change in your approach to life allows you to grow consistently in awareness and wisdom. You have bypassed your husband’s energy level. It is now up to you to make decisions based upon the fact that you cannot force him to change his behavior.

You can choose to remain in the situation and to occupy yourself with concern for him, or you may see that—in order for you to progress further along your life’s pathway—you must cut loose from the desire to control another. The choice is up to you. Remember, nothing is right or wrong; everything is just a lesson that you chose to experience.
